4-4.5 star

STOLEN LOVE has all the elements that make a dark erotica reader happy: torture, rape and secrets!!

“You will go nowhere, do nothing, and talk to no one, without me knowing about it. Your life is now in my hands.”
“Whooooo are you?“ I managed to choke out.
“I’m Lochlan Finch. I’m your husband and I own you.”

In STOLEN LOVE, Wallace flip-flops back-and-forth between 2 stories: a couple in the past and the a couple living during the present time. The first story is about Marshall and Ad

Stolen love is Murphy Wallace's upcoming debut release.
This book contains triggers and isn't for the faint hearted.
In saying that I loved every dark moment of this book..
It will mess with your emotions, make you smile then will leave you wanting to scream!!
This book is told in multiple POV's it's a quick short read that you will devour in one sitting. This book contains love, lies, deception and violence.
That ending oh wow that ending!! I can't wait for the next book. I need more!!
This book was off the chain! It was dark and horrifying at times, sad and brutal, but oh so good! The twists and turns keep you engaged, and you just keep hoping things will get better for Lana. Lock is an evil man, I hate him! And poor Marshall! This book is a rollercoaster of emotions, and moves at a fast pace. Just when you think things are starting to look up, the book ends on a twist! I can't wait to read the next book! ...more

Murphy Wallace is an upcoming debut author, so this is obviously the first piece of work of hers I've read. The moment I read the synopsis she hooked me. It intrigued me and I wanted more. Well, did I ever get more. Way more than I could have expected, and I loved every moment of it!

This story is told in the present, and also set in the past. And there aren't two POVs, but FOUR!!!! And even though you go back and fourth to the past and present, and switch between the characters, Ms. Wallace mana

Stolen Love is a very impressive debut novel from talented author Murphy Wallace. I was hooked from the start and quickly got engrossed with the main characters. It is told from 4 POV but it’s made very clear which character is speaking. It also switches from past to present and back again but it flows seamlessly. Loch really must be one of the all time sadistic book villains, I don’t think he has a single redeeming quality! Marshall is sexy as hell and gorgeous to boot and I like the feisty eng ...more

A “page turner” is putting it mildly! I read this book in one day! That speaks volumes for someone like me. When I started Stolen Love, I immediately had the overwhelming need to know what happens! The characters are great. Lock is so dark and a horrible person but I found myself wanting to see what he would do next! I wanted to reach into the book and help Lana myself. I would recommend this book highly. Well done.

First of the cover is stunning and so dramatic I love it..Now omg Locke is a d**k you've been warned he'll make you wanna throw your kindle and throat punch him at the same time I know I did...As far as debut books go Murphy has done a fantastic job..The story is totally addictive and the emotions are real pure rage on one page and sadness on the next.Fans of dark reads will love this and should one click as soon as possible. ...more

This was an amazing start to the series and I cannot wait for the next book. So sweet, romantic, HOT, dark, disturbing, scary, and more! Marshall and Adrienne were amazing. When they meet for the first time, you could feel the sparks...and the lust. I loved how Marshall had to work for it a bit even though Adrienne was just as interested. Their passion and love for each other was so deep that you just knew that nothing could come between them.....except it does......and it is heart wrenching.

Oh lord this was brilliant we get all the POV from the characters and the past and present stories of all the background with nothing left out, the author tells it all and like it is and it will gut you in places and put a smile on your face in another place with all the lies, deception, torture and has you praying for some kind of light to come.
The characters are complex and very strong and my heart hurt for Adrienne and the ending was shocking and I need to know and cannot wait for the conclu

⚠️ Trigger Warning as this novel depicts serious sexual abuse.
With that said, this is a great debut novel by Murphy Wallace! The book is written in perspectives by 4 different people and it bounces from past to present. But don’t let that deter you, it is very well presented and easy to follow. Each page you read will leave you wanting more. I’m patiently awaiting the sequel!

May 12, 2018 rated it it was amazing
Wow! This is definitely not a standalone. However this story simply cannot be told in one book. There are four main characters and four different POVs. I was absolutely floored how much I loved the book. The storyline grabbed me and wouldn’t let go even after I read the last page. I honestly cannot wait for the next book. This book is in the dark romance category, so if you want an easy read this isn’t for you. However, if you want to be invested in your characters and have your heart ripped out ...more

Wow, what an amazing read! I must say it takes a lot to keep my attention since I’m not much of a reader but I couldn’t put this one down. I read it in 2 days and now I’m sad it’s over. The imagination of this author is just on point. As I was reading it was so easy to imagine what the characters were going through and I honestly didn’t see that specific ending coming. Fantastic read!! 5 stars for sure. Can’t wait t read more from Murphy Wallace.

Debut Dark romance from Murphy Wallace, is just that, DARK. The faint of heart need not read. It will leave you wanting more, and I hope part two will be out soon. Well written story of four main characters, Lana, Lock Adrienne & Marshall. Once you start reading you won't be able to put your kindle down. Bravo Murphy! ...more

*5 Stars*

This book is everything I could ever want in a dark read (trigger warnings definitely apply). This may be a debut novel but there's no mistaking the genius of this author. I could not put it down.

The storyline itself is thoroughly engaging. There is multiple POVs and time changes from past to present. However, Murphy Wallace handles it perfectly and used it as a way to enhance the reading experience. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time as it is filled with not just darkness but

4.5* Amazing Debut Book

ARC Reviewed for my honest thoughts -

Stolen Love is a dark brutal ugly tale of twisted pure evil betrayal at it's highest level.

I love dark reads but never have I hated someone as much as I do Lochlan Finch, this man is beyond nothing, no act to vile, he treats everyone with an iron fist and nothing will stand in his way to get what he wants regardless of who he has to break along the way.

Lana - Is a lost woman living in a nightmare.
Marshall - A sexy CEO, the world at his

How I love a dark twisted tale and this debut novel did not disappoint. Gripped from the very first page, Ms Murphy skilfully and successfully navigates the reader through the different main characters POV’s in different timelines which added depth to the story. Lock - what a character! Evil and twisted, his sadistic actions made my toes curl and my blood boil - he’s definitely joined a list of my most hated characters. Be warned this story isn’t for the faint hearted but lovers of dark graphic ...more

Murphy Wallace is a debut. Hard to imagine once you read this book though.

This book was so wonderfully written that it took me no time at all to become engrossed in the world she built. I love villains. That’s my stance on many characters. The characters in this book? I loved them all. And if it takes her two years to write another book... well I’ll be waiting impatiently.

I started reading this book and could not stop! Be forewarned. There are lots of triggers in this book. You will need to be rather aloof and strong to keep reading at times. Seriously, I considered stopping at times, but then I pulled my big-girl panties up and kept on going. I'm glad I did. The story is dark, dismal, and downright disgusting at times, BUT it's a dark romance reader's dream! It's one of those OMG-NOOOO!!!- type of books. Your heart is in your throat and you can't help but scream ...more

STOLEN LOVE…. WOW!! Gripping!! An incredibly brilliant DEBUT for author MURPHY WALLACE.

Despite the horrors, torture, and cunning evil that threatens to break the innocent - there remains a piece of fragile hope, an inner strength to find and make sense of what and why life has become this madness.

Delve deep and experience the journey of each of these amazing characters. to reach the end. A roller coaster of emotions. into a world where evil manipulates, tortures, and abuses... to crave what’s no

Stolen Love by Murphy Wallace
Five Stars

Stolen Love is a dark romance by Murphy Wallace. I have to say for being a debut book it is a wonderful piece of work. This book was presented in four POV’s and switches from past to present, but the author does this seamlessly. This book is fast paced and sucked me in from the very first page. I read it in one sitting and all I can say is I want more! This book may contain triggers for some, but if you love dark romance this book is perfect for you.

From the cover to the blurb, l could not wait for this book to go live, and can l say it was well worth the wait.. This debut author has delivered one hell of a read

This book takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions and doesn't settle on just one.. It has some very dark elements also, and l found them very confronting, but in saying that the story has you pushing thru these feeling to find out more... Told from multiple POV worked well and you easily transitioned with every charac

WOW! This book has my emotions all over the place. I can't imagine the difficulties, to put it mildly, Adrienne/Lana went through. I think my heart kept racing several times while reading this book. When I finished this cliffhanger, it left me wanting more. You really need to read this book! ...more
