5 out of 5 stars

The story Decadence by Lynnette Brisia is a new adult/suspense/romance book. This is a story that I found myself thinking about long after finishing. It is written in a way that grabs your attention and holds it to the very last page. It is the first book I have read by that author and I find that she takes a situation that would be considered dark and gives you a reason to hold on to hope. This is the story of Seth. It’s his birthday and he celebrates

Decadence by Lynnette Brisia is one of those books that you come away from asking yourself, “what did I just read?”…. It is dark, twisted and suspenseful. I had so many questions throughout the book; I felt that I really had to keep reading because I needed answers and to find out where the story would take me.
The story starts with Seth Ryan who is on a guy’s night out with his friends who have taken him to a strip club to celebrate Seth’s twenty-first birthday. They all have a great nig

My goodness!!! What a house of horrors. I could not believe the words I was reading, at times. So hard was it to get my head around in the beginning. Decadence is the first book I have read by Lynette Brisia, and I must say, I am really impressed.

Sth meets Mia at a strip club called Decadence. He becomes obsessed almost instantly and is intrigued by her tattoo. But all is not as it seems at the club, and they are both cast in a nightmare that neither of them could comprehend, and a horror they m

Decadence by Lynnette Brisia was wow-just WOW! Fan-freaking-tastic, amazing, dark & twisty, and written in first person (alternating) POVs by the two main characters-Seth and Mia. It has everything I love in a good book. Drama? Has it in spades. Heat? Hope you have a fan on stand-by. I gave this gem 5 stars! Also plan on stalking this talented author from here on out;)

It’s Seth Ryan’s birthday, so what does the typical hot young guy do to celebrate? Strip. Club. He and his friends hit up Decaden

This book will make you rethink going to a strip club. Or at least rethink getting that private dance. Seems like in Decadence bad things happen when you’re lead away from your group for a private encounter. If the owner of the establishment thinks you’re pretty there’s a good chance you’re going to be recruited to work for them… Against your will.
Mia is out for the night with a group of her coworkers. They’ve decided to go to a strip club to see how embarrassed they can make her. It’s not a big

Mia and her co workers are out for a few drinks and a few laughs. When the group suggest Mia participates in the fun, she doesn’t back down. But what happens is something that she could never ever have imagined and nothing in life could have ever prepared her what did happen.

Seth finds himself out with the boys at a strip club, Decadence where what he sees leaves him wanting to see more. Unable to get thoughts of the beautiful girl with the amazing tatoo out of his mind, Seth finds himself dra

*ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review.

What a wild, roller coaster this book is. I've never read a book quite like this, with the main focus being on a strip club. A strip club that you might not ever leave from. A place so wild, even you dreams couldn't get you in the right mind-frame for a place like Decadence.  A place so mysterious, a place with such beautiful people. The feelings you get that you might not get any other place. If you're chosen, you might get something bigger tha

Decadence by Lynnette Brisia is a page turner, you never know what is going to happen next. During the moments, you must put the book down for your obligations you will be wondering “what in the world did I just read?” The story takes place in Decadence, a strip club so aptly named as its vibe portrays the very definition of the word, a moral or cultural decline as characterized by excessive indulgence in pleasure or luxury. Decadence isn’t just any strip club it’s a place all your wildest dream ...more

Decadence was a dark and twisted 4 star read.

We meet Seth who is out for his 21st birthday at a strip club. When his new girlfriend finds out, she freaks out on him, and he ends it quickly. We jump ahead a few years and Seth is on his way to “Decadence” another strip club with his brother and friends for his birthday. And when they treat him to a lap dance, he witnesses something and someone that he can’t stop thinking about.

Who is she? Why can’t he stop t

I must give Decadence by Lynette Brisa a five star rating. Her writing is breathtaking.She pulled me in and left me staggered by how fast I was caught up in Decadence.
Lynette Brisa writes a thoroughly believable modern day horror story filled with modern day monsters and madness. I was kept wondering if the Hero and Heroine were going to make it out alive. Decadence describes the emotions of the characters wonderfully and builds upon them until I was left breathless and on the edge of my seat.

Mia is out with her friends at the strip club having a good time. The guys have had more than they probably should to drink and decide to buy her a private dance. The guys will not take no for an answer as Mia really does not want to have someone dance for her. This dance they bought for her, the girl that is her escort is giving her a bad feeling. Mia reluctantly agrees and the further that she walks down the hall that feeling keeps getting worse. She enters the room and the curtain goes up; wh ...more

Decadence is a standalone novel by Lynnette Brisia and is definitely for fans of dark reads! I was looking for something different to read, don’t get me wrong I love a romance with a HEA but sometimes you just want something different and I definitely got that with this book! It was unlike anything that I have read before. It was dark, gritty, sexy and I definitely questioned what I had read once it was over but I loved every single minute of it! I loved that I went into this book thinki

Decadence by Lynnette Brisia was absolutely amazing, and unlike anything I've read so far this year. It was everything you could want in a book, there was drama, it was suspenseful and kept you wanting to turn the pages faster than you could read. She has an unbelievable amount of talent, and I think I just found a new favorite author. An amazing 5 star read.

Seth Ryan is going out for a night on the town to celebrate his birthday and why shouldn't he? His first stop? A strip club, but this club

This is the story of Seth and Mia and how a trip to a strip club changed their lives.
Mia visits a couple of weeks before Seth and he goes to celebrate his birthday. Neither visit goes as planned and a nightmare takes over their lives.

Decadence by Lynnette Brisia is a dark, suspenseful and action packed book. This is my first story by this author and she impressed me with her writing style. Her ability to write dark suspense is enjoyable. I have read this type of story before and the authors are not always able to pull it off. In this case this author pulled it off so much so that you will be sitting on the edge of your seat.

Decadence by Lynette Brisia is an enticing thriller about one of the seven capital sins and how the human mind manages to capture and exploit it.

Seth is a newly turned 21 year old young man at the cusp of his youth. Mia is a young woman who's out to have fun with co-workers. Though not at the same time, they both end up in a strip club called Decadence. Here, their fates fully intertwine as they face drugs, danger, captivity and mayhem.

Decadence by Lynnette Brisia is just....Wow is all I can say. This is my first time reading this author. Do you like dark, twisted books? This book was written well and kept me interested because I had to find out how it ended.

Mia Stanton visited a strip club with a few male friends who insisted she get a private show. She didn't want to go but, finally went to the back for the show. Mia had no idea her worst nightmare was about to occur and she would never see those friends again.

This story...yeah.

It's a twisted tale that you're not quite sure is a romance because of everything that happens, but then it could be because of everything that happens.

It's gory without being obvious. It's suspenseful and thrilling and the sex scenes are hot!!!

Mia is a girl just out for a good time. She's doesn't really have a big POV part in this story, but what you get from her is invaluable. Because you can see, with just the glimpses into her head how terrified she is of her surroundings a

As I sit here trying to write this review my brain is still trying to wrap around and sort out what I just read. I have not read Lynnette Brisia's work before. This was an unexpected dark, twisted romance like I've never experienced. At times I wanted to turn and hide myself while reading...I felt like I was in the red room wanting to escape myself.

Book Review: Decadence
Author: Lynnette Brisia
I am not at all sure how to feel about this book. It is a great read for dark erotica that ends in a happily ever after. When I say dark, let me set the scene for you. This story is based on two main characters a male and female who have been abducted and locked away in the back of a strip joint called "Decadence". These two, and others like them, have been forced to perform as sex slaves. They have sex in a room where paying customers can w

I picked this book to read solely based on the blurb. It really made me wonder what could possibly happen. When you read the blurb don’t let the words “red room” make you think this is a book like any other you may have read. The very word “Decadence” could have a negative meaning or a positive one. This book is the same way. Just wow. A very interesting story line where a strip club gets turned into something more devious. So many questions pop up through-out the story.

Decadence by Lynnette Brisia is a book I would fully recommend if you like dark suspense/romance book although I would for sure say this book is probably not good for anyone under 18 to read. Decadence is a new strip club that is very popular for very good reasons. The staff is unmatched and the private dance? Forget about it, you have never experienced something so erotic. Have you ever heard the saying it’s too good to be true? That could be the case with Decadence because while everyone is we ...more

This book is sexy, stimulating, thrilling, and suspenseful. It will leave you on the edge of your seat wondering just how it can possibly end with a HEA.

What is going on in the private rooms of Decadence? Who are the performers and how did they get there?

Decadence delves into the taboo, holding nothing back, not even the horror or what happens when performers don't "work" out and what can happen if they "work" out too well.

Don't miss your chance to own this sultry story today!!!

Definitely different.

I loved the different plot. Mia and Seth, were both easy to like. A lttle rough in its final print still, but the storyline was enough to forgive that. It felt so wrong, but so right to enjoy reading this short read.
