I was drugged.
Now, I’ve woken up in a dark, luscious room.
A deviant playground.
I’m not alone.
The person that was drugged and taken with me is here, too.
My confidant.
Someone that I had come to see as a brother.
My best friend.
Suddenly, there’s a voice coming through the speakers, telling us we’ve both been chosen to die.
The only way out? Do everything we’re told to do

Well, this was certainly a hell of a start to what is bound to be a scary, dark series. In fact, I really struggled with how to rate this one. In the end, I think this one is about a 3 1/2 star read for me.

On the one hand, I love stories that are taboo and twisted. This book is probably one of the most twisted stories that I've read in a long time. It was downright gory and deranged -- think mutilation and torture. The authors didn't hold back in that regard, at all.

I also have to give the autho

Although short, Taken packs in a real punch! It had such a unique dark romance aspect to it, If it were for the idea itself - I would give it all the stars. This dirty, demented daring story pulled me in right from it's first words.

Ivy and Noah have been kidnapped, drugged and thrown in some weird luxurious bedroom cell. When they come to they are still under the influence of whatever drugs they'd been given. Then it just gets twisted, dark and oh so intriguing.

Taken is the first novella in the Voyeur series by N. Isabelle Blanco and Elena M. Reyes. I had never read anything by these two authors before, but once I read the blurb, I was sold! It sounded like just the kind of dark, depraved story I love to read. More twisted than I imagined, intense, bloody, and intriguing, it definitely did not disappoint!

Two people are kidnapped from their homes and wake up in a luxurious room drugged and scantily clad where they are ordered around by a disembodied voi

As the first installment of the Voyeur series, TAKEN was short but packed one hell of a punch. Ivy and Noah are best friends who have woken up in a strange room only to realize that they've both been drugged and kidnapped. With more questions than answers, they're not left wondering for too long because their captor(s) make it clear that they are toys/pawns/victims of a very sick game. They don't know who took them, why they were chosen, what the captor(s) end game is, or whether or not they wil ...more

I'm still in shock from that crazy-ass story.
There isn't really that much I can say about this that the blurb doesn't but I'm going to try.
Here goes.
SO Ivy and Noah, best friends, kidnapped, drugged and dumped into some sort of sex dungeon.
Creepy-ass female voice wanted them to perform for,

Hot, dark, and dirty. Just how I like my reads.

Best friends and surrogate siblings, Ivy and Noah have been kidnapped, Taken. Drugged and held captive in an opulent bedroom with no way out, they are forced to perform depraved and humiliating acts by a woman whose disembodied voice floats to them through speakers in the ceiling, threatening those they love if they don’t comply. Her audience needs to be entertained and Ivy and Noah are their entertainment.

Whew! This was a short novella, the first in a serial, that I can't beg the authors enough to gimme gimme GIMME the next installment!! <3 You love me best, so.... GIMME!!!!!

Waking up next to your best friend wearing nothing but some slinky lingerie is confusing. Waking up like that in a strange place with no windows or doors is creepy and panic inducing!

Just why are Noah and Ivy there and who is orchestrating this whole thing? The person I thought it was. . . well, I was wrong. lol!

This book is sick, nasty, and somehow hot 😂

If the SAW franchise decided to dive into erotica it would be this book. The sick part is I actually enjoyed it. There is a to be continued ending... so if you can't take a cliffy you may want to hold off, but I felt it was good and short enough that you won't forget anything if you read it now and wait for the next book.


Edit... the second book is already out 😂

Positives:

The premise is interesting
The sexual tension between the characters is tangible

Negatives:

There's a gory twist around the 65% mark that I didn't really like. It was more OTT and gross than scary.

The heroine's inner monologue is repetitive. I skimmed a little bit - Anytime I feel the need to skim, it means the story just hasn't grabbed me and I don't feel fully immersed. Despite the interesting premise it was slightly boring. I kinda got tired of all the reminders of how Noah was just

This book was barely a step up from the usual round of mindless smut I read. Ivy and Noah's dialogue was repetitive, as were their thoughts.

Dark and disturbing psycho-sexual thriller! I need more NOW (please).

Full review to follow.

OMG, what did I just read? Ivy and Noah are drugged with something like Ecstasy and Viagra, kidnapped and locked in a room. The only link they have to the outside world is a voice barking orders over a speaker.

"We’ve been dealt our cards; there is no escape. We must accept our fate. Either we fuck each other, or we die.”

The two friends find themselves in a sex induced haze with an audience watching. If th

1.5 / 5 stars

This was just hella weird. A weird mix of horror and erotica? idek, it was a wild ride, one I didn't really enjoy. It was a car wreck and I couldn't look away. Also, this author seems to have a habit of creating a series out of what should be one book, this was ridiculously short, making you pay for every part. But it clearly worked because I also bought the second one.

And spoiler,
B.E.L.L.A.Mc
If you're looking for something without blood and gore, don't read this. It's awful. OTT and incredibly nonsensical. The characters are wooden and shallow, and non too likeable. The story lacks depth, it too is a shallow pornfest. Ends on a cliffhanger of course. Won't be reading any further and wouldn't recommend it.

Whoa! WTF did I just read?
TAKEN has to be the most disturbing, depraved and controversial book I’ve read this year.
It is so much more twisted and darker than I originally inspected – so much so that I had to step back during a particular scene to take a deep breath… and I am really not easily rattled. I devoured this novella in one sitting – and it was over way too fast. I don’t need excerpts from other books by the authors – I need answers – and fast!! Seriously, there is an endless load of un

Wow. What a read...I honestly don't even know what to write that can come close to how I feel about this novella. For lack of better words..I friggin loved it. It's sick, twisted, raunchy, uninhibited and I inhaled these pages as if I were starved. I need more...so so so much more. July 25th can't come soon enough. Highly recommend Taken to those of you who like some twisted, raw, gritty reads. I will definitely be re reading this over and over until Tied - book 2 releases the end of July.

My second book by N. Isabelle Blanco and my first by Elena M. Reyes! These two really know how to capture your interest! The blurb totally intrigued me and I was so sold!

Taken packs a real punch in this steamy, twisted, disturbing, dirty, deranged, depraved, screwed up, and fast paced read!

Noah and Ivy have been drugged and kidnapped.

Taken is a dark erotic romance. It’s also part one of a series and ends on a cliffhanger, so be aware of this before you buy. It’s a really short read, but ends on a wow of a cliffy.

Ivy and Noah are best friends and they both wake up in a bedroom that’s not their own. They figure out pretty quick that they were drugged and brought there, but by who? They soon end up hearing a voice over a speaker that gives them directions. You’ll have to get the book to find out more because I really don’t want

HOLY SH@T!!!!! This is one dark, deranged taboo read. I F*CK$NG LOVED IT!!!! 5+ STARS!!!

I literally have not read a more disturbed book in my entire life. I am all about reading dark books, but this is by far the darkest. I couldn't put this book down, I really did seclude myself in my room just to devour it. Ivy and Noah are both in a very compromising situation, and I am chopping at the bit to see how this story concludes.

WOW!!!! Ivy and Noah's story grabs and holds you page after page. 'Taken' definitely will not let the reader go. The wanting to know who, what and where this sadistic B*tch will take Ivy and Noah is mind-blowing. The suspense is pins and needles intense. A must read for sure.
