Promising Blurb, Disappointing Story

When I read the blurb for this story, I thought it would be right up my alley. I love dark stories and captivity themes are among my favorites. So, the story of a girl kidnapped and forced into sexual slavery sounded like a guaranteed dark success.

Unfortunately, this book fell flat for me. The characters seemed completely disconnected from the events taking place in the story. When they did have any type of reaction to the events transpire get, it was disprop

For me, this book was mostly a muddled mess of awkward, forced, confusing, and dislikable plot and character points that just never fit together in an authentic way.

Writing

It could use and editor for the typos and missing words:

"Push the damn {blank} if you want to."


Book one of this duology is first-person, FMC's POV. It heavily relies on telling the plot through internal narrative.

I understand, given the plot setting, why so much is detailed through internal narrative, but the FMC's vo

I came across Irrevocable by Skye Callahan by chance when I saw a post about the dark, erotic romance on Facebook. After reading the blurb, I was instantly intrigued and basically dropped everything on my TBR list to read it. I was in the mood for a dark, gritty, and twisted romance and this book gave me everything I was hoping for and then some♥

Irrevocable starts off with Silver waking up in an unfamiliar place, disoriented, unable to remember the events from the night before, and surrounded by

I love dark and twisty reads.. I love gritty.. everything about the blurb told me I would love this one. But.. NOPE. It ended up just being OK for me. I never felt any chemistry between Silver and Kirk and for the amount of holy shit crapness she went though I definitely needed some chemistry there to be able to get through some of that. Now I don't mind abuse in my reads or the elements of non-con, but some of this was just high on the "ewwww" factor (view spoiler) ...more

If there’s one thing I love, its a book that completely blows my mind. I like my books dark, twisty and with romance intertwined. And oh holy mother of everything, jesus, godammit - does Skye Callahan ever deliver all of the above with Irrevocable. From the very first page, we are thrust into the dark underworld of slavery, into a world where unthinkable acts are everyday occurrences. If you love reading about a fiercely strong heroine and a completely dominate male - then this is definitely a b ...more

Warning: This isn't your rainbows and love sonnets kind of romance. This story explores topics of abduction and slavery, and contains explicit scenes of dubious consent, graphic violence and sex.

2.5-3 stars. This book had a promising storyline and immediately appealed to me – yes I do like my slave-captive stories if written well and I was looking forward to a dark, dangerous, slightly sadistic, brooding, unpredictable hero that I loved even if it made me question my own sanity. Was Kirk like this? Yes and no. He was all of the above, but for me I just didn’t click, with him or the heroine – Rose or Silver.

The story starts off straight after she is taken by a group of men, where she fi

dnf at 60%

I don't even know what to say about this book. I made it up to 60% hoping for something even though I realized there was nothing to hope for somewhere around chapter four. I am a fan of dark erotica/romance but almost all the scenes in this book made me cringe, I couldn't connect with any of the characters, and there was nothing there to keep me interested.

Wow.. I started out wanting to hate this book immensely. It was really out of my comfort zone, and didn’t have a clue how to rate or review it. Dark, ugly..intense and amazingly written! The warning fit the book, its definitely not a sweet loving story.
Imagine being taken from all that you know, to a place where if you are to survive you have to forget yourself. You have to endure acts that will not only strip you down to the bone, but down to your very soul. At

Good Lord!!! With as much twisting, pulling, clamping, and pinching done to ones NIPPLES, I'm shocked they just don't fall off!!

I swear my own nipples are still sore after reading this book. Let alone the clit pinching. I'm sure my reflex would have accidentally poked or punched someone in the eye or nose. Like the saying goes, an eye for a clit or was that an eye for an eye.

Anyway, I am so shocked to find that I really liked this book. It was very entertaining. I was a little scared on some p

Anything with the word DARK in the title or blurb and I'm up for the read and this one did not disappoint. Not read any of Skye Callahan before but will def look into more from her.
Couldn't and didn't want to put it down till I finished it.

Action packed from the start with Rose waking to being attacked by a group of men not remembering how she got where she is. Kirk saves her this time and claims her as his slave and she is renamed Silver.

I am not going to spoil this story for you—so I will hit on the basics. Silver is drugged and kidnapped by goons who are employed by a secret sex slave retreat. Silver is claimed by a new Master who happens to be part of the operation. Kirk, Silver’s new Master, isn’t who he seems to be. Silver will do whatever it takes to survive.

Thanks to Wicked Reads for a free book to read and review. Lovely read that captured my attention and sucked me in. Well written and steamy for a dark intense read. I happen to love dark romance stories that have Stockholm syndrome in them. This book fed that insane need I have to read such dark, and intense situations that include nonconsensual sex, slavery, and other sexual acts. The synopsis caught my eye right off, and that cover was hot as hell. The plot for the book was really good, and I ...more

Wow! What a wild and unexpected ride that was!

I wanted hard and rough, not soft and sweet. And that’s certainly what I got! Irrevocable is not a dip your toes in the shallow end of the pool. It’s a cannonball right into the deep end. There’s no testing the temperature of the water. The story starts off fast, and I was thrown in from page one. Irrevocable is shadowed in darkness with a cloud that rains down intensity from beginning to e

Irrevocable by Skye Callahan was a dark, intense, erotic, absolutely BRILLIANT read! I devoured this book in one night, and it has easily made my Top Pick of 2014 list. Dark Erotic Romance junkies BEWARE! You will instantly become addicted to Skye Callahan's writing style.

I loved this book! So well written and believable how it all happened.

I've heard of Skye Callahan, but had not had the opportunity to read any of her books. So when a friend who knows the types of books i enjoy, recommended this book, I couldn't pass it up! I've found a new favorite author to round out my list.

This book had some really dark and twisted turns that kept me actively interested in the characters. And even though, at times, I really wanted to smack Silver for her lack of appreciation

If I could rate this book 10 stars I would. This book was amazing! It was dark but not as dark as some, and it had some not so dark moments that were refreshing and touching. Silver was kidnapped after a night out with friends to celebrate her birthday. Kirk was now her Master. Being kidnapped and made into a sex slave can either bend or break you. Kirk was trying to make sure Silver didn’t break. The relationsh

Dark Readers, this one's for you!

I think this one varied in levels of darkness. I enjoyed the characters, the plot, and the sadistic men in this story. Some parts were PITCH DARK, but other times it was mild. (to me) I think this would be hard for some readers to swallow, but if you love dark reads, this one is for you. It fed my dark heart. Take the warnings serious!

Finally a good DARK read, that has it ALL!!
The characters are well developed and believable, the story-line is intriguing, the "dark" factor was HIGH but at the same time there were "light" points.
Ms.Callahan was able to make me feel SO many emotions reading this book - I just couldn't put it down.
I can't "spoil" anything, but if you like a good, dark read then you NEED to read this.
If you can't stomach semi-dark reads, this is NO
