"Tower" is my first book by this particular author and its one that I really did enjoy immensely.
Its been a while since I read a good Dom/submissive story and this one ticked every one of my boxes if it wasn't for me not quite liking the finale as much as the rest of this book this probably would have been a clean sweep.
No mind this was still an excellent read that kept me on my toes easily capturing and retaining my current attention.

I liked the first book of the series enough to get the second one and almost as soon as I started reading it I regretted it.

You see, what I liked most about the first book was that Ellie had choices. They were not always palatable ones but she could walk away from Ash had she been prepared to face the consequences. Azalea doesn't have that luxury. She's a prisoner throughout 90% of the book - initially she'd imprisoned by her "mother", then Peter kidnaps her and keeps her prisoner in Ash's

Retelling of fairy tales as dark romances is fairly popular right now. However, I have to say that this is the first one I have ever read that is a retelling of Rapunzel. But if anyone was going to write it, I'm glad it was Measha Stone! Peter never wanted to be like his uncle and simply take women from their homes as payment or just because, but when he sees Azalea locked up in her own mother's house, he simply acts on instinct and takes her. Peter says he is saving her from a bad situation ...more

Azalea is an almost 23-year-old naive young woman who's tired of being locked up in her mother's home. So lately she's been escaping for tiny trips while her mother's out on business trips. One night she heads to a club where she catches the owner's eye. Peter Titon is a dominating asshole and he knows it, doesn't even mind that his reputation is so hard. When he sees Azalea's innocent gaze taking in a scene between him and a sub at his club, he wants her instantly. She doesn't take him up on

Measha Stone does it again! Another hot Alpha male dominating a submissive who doesn't know she is a submissive.
Measha writes perfectly balanced stories with strong dominating men who don't apologize for the way they are.
Peter is my dream man to a T. He grabs his woman and takes control, but he is also secretly sensitive about her needs.
Poor Azalea, she wants to feel loved and to belong to someone somewhere.
This story is hot and exciting!

Tower is the second full novel in the Ever After series, and is a dark retelling of Rapunzel. Azalea is almost twenty three, lives with her overly protective mother, and is dying to experience her own freedom. After meeting Peter in his club, Tower, a chance meeting later entangles their fates, at least until Azaleas mother returns. Peter takes Azalea back to his home, keeping her safe, keeping her his. Between punishments and rewards, Peter and Azalea are drawn together, feeling more than ...more

I think that this is actually a 4.5 and not a strict 4.

Fairy tales are a great framework for authors to work with. We all know the basics of the story, so it gives the authors plenty of room to work around without the reader having to get come to a whole new world, cold. That's what Measha Stone has done here. She's taken Rapunzel, tied her up a little bit, spanked her a time or two, and given us a new story to read.

Azalea is almost 23 and has spent her entire life under her mother's thumb.

Tower is a great book. The characters are full of depth, emotionally and in thinking. The storyline has suspense, action and a dark romance to it. I truly enjoyed this book.
I read to 85% and gave up. I am not sure what it was, but I lost interest. I love retellings, but this one just lost its steam. I love these stories, but I felt that the heroine went from one prison to another. The hero was not really possessive of the heroine. He would "spank" her in front of other men. He said he was possessive, but actions speak louder than words.

It may work for you. There is a lot of BDSM. I would describe this one as an erotica. The scenes were okay. Mediocre all around.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review.

When Azalea meets Peter Titon, she's sure it was a one-time chance meeting. But when her over protective mother leaves for a work trip, and the men left behind to protect her fail-she's taken by Peter in the dark of night with no explanation. Peter isn't one to explain his motives, and taking Azalea is no exception. He takes what he wants. When he sees Azalea at his newest club, Tower, her fire and grit draws him to her. Later

LOVED this Rapunzel retelling, the twists and turns and sexy times... with a hint of discipline and BDSM. It was refreshing and fun, I'll definitely be reading more from Measha.

Tower is a kinky modern retelling of the Rapunzel story, and the sequel to Measha Stone's Beast, which I adored. The pairing is Peter, the cousin from book one, and Azalea and I was so excited because I really liked Peter and wanted to see more of him.


While the first book was consensual, in that Elle offered herself to pay her father's debts and agreed to give Ash everything in return for her father's safety... this book is a lot less consensual so if that bothers you, you may want to

Looooved this! The Hero, Peter has been in some other Annex related stories & has branched out to having his own Club named Tower. It not in as prestigious an area as Annex but the club itself is large & nice. The heroine, Azalea, 23 & a virgin, still lives at home with her mother virtually a prisoner & guarded.
The story is launched when during one of Azalea's 'escapes' she goes to club Tower to experience a tiny slice of life. She comes to the attention of Peter who ends up

This one was not nearly as engrossing as the first one. And I think a big part of that was the fact that Azalea was not there by choice. Peter kidnapped her and wouldn't let her leave. And despite things he says he treats her like he has every right to own her. I don't know, this relationship just didn't sit the same as the previous one.

I liked Peter a lot more in the first book. I enjoyed him more as Ash's right hand man than him acting like he's a bigshot. He has recently opened up a new club,

Love, love, loved this story

Tower is set in the same world as Beast , this is Peter's story. This can easily be read and enjoyed as a stand alone, though I do think it's even better to have read Beast first. This is a tale of captivity, false freedom and love all wrapped up in some steaming hot kink.

The author writes an excellent tale, with characters you believe in and just enough darkness to give the story some bite. Her writing flows well, making the story both easy to read and follow,

Although I had not read any of the previous Decadence books, there was no need to. In my opinion, this is a totally unique story of attraction, obsession, protection and mystery. Peter is a STRONG, confident, dominant male who knows what he wants and acts accordingly to achieve it. Azalea is an intelligent, inquisitive, logical, overly sheltered young woman who was able to devise a hopefully safe way to satisfy her sexual curiosity. Her plan turned out to not be as safe as she had envisioned. ...more

The retelling of fairy tales is one of my favorite romantic listens and Measha Stone delivers again with her rendition of Rapunzel! After visiting Tower and seeing Peter Titon there, Azalea goes to her highly protected home. This does not keep Peter from coming to her and taking her without explanation! She goes from one "prison" to another, and has no idea the reason...yet. Peter is taken with her, and is going to make her his! Stone has woven a dark story, with elements of evil in Azalea's ...more

This was a light little BDSM / Rapunzel retelling. I missed the first book in this series, but that didn't cause any issues for me with this story. And honestly, I didn't realize this was a fairy-tale retelling until afterwards, but felt those vibes while reading it the entire time. So it definitely fit the bill.

Azalea was kept by her mother locked in her room to 'keep her safe'. But Azalea was a curious little one and wondered out to the brothel-esq Tower of Peter Titon, our hero, in his new

Captivity is Her Normal

Another amazing read by my all time favourite author. Ms Stone never disappoints her readers and she certainly hasnt with this intriguing storyline full of revenge, lies, betrayal, murder, with many dark family histories that keep you tied up in knots awaiting how this magnificent read will end. You never see whats coming all the way through the book, oh what dark twists in this great plot!

Tower can be enjoyed and read as a stand alone, but believe me, you will enjoy reading the first book, The Beast, as well! Measha Stone is a wonderful author, her characters come to life - the reader can easily connect and relate to them and the story is well developed with meaning and substance.
Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair Measha Stone puts her own spin on this story and it is amazing and a great read. Azalea has been isolated from others for most of her life, her mother keeps her in

I always like it when an author continues characters from one book into another, whether it's an actual series or not. Not sure what Measha Stone has planned for these moderately dark "fairy tales." Here we have a story very loosely based on Rapunzel, and it works really well. Azalea is the maiden in the metaphorical tower and Peter Titon is her prince. Their first encounter is very brief, when she sneaks out of her mother's home to visit his BDSM club. But he is intrigued by her and when he has ...more

Peter was filling in for his cousin Ash while he was on hi honeymoon. Trying to help at the Annex BDSM club their family owned on top of running the Tower, a new BDSM club he just opened separate from the family business. He saw her watching him as he was in a scene. He didn't know what it was that had their eyes locking onto each other. They'd never met.
Azalea knew she had a very limited time to be gone and then she had to sneak back into the house before her mother found out she was missing.

Tower is deliciously seductive! Peter and his Tower of debauchery will have you drooling within the first chapter. In this naughty retelling of Rapunzel we get the lovely Azalea and the dark delectable Peter. Azalea is a bit naive and is kept on a tight leash from her mom. One night of sneaking out to check out the club Tower starts her on a sexy journey she wasn't ready for. Meeting eyes with Peter while he puts on a show, sets both their paths on a collision course. Peter takes Azalea on a ...more

Kind of a let down compared to the first one

I don't know what went wrong the first book was so good and very steamy this one was pretty much a flop for me :( I saw a bunch of errors it was like the author was bored and trying to throw this story together as quickly as possible. I think it could have been much better had it been edited more thoroughly and some things had been tweaked. The run down of the story is Azalea is the daughter of Bellatrix Gothel and her mother has kept her locked away

She sometimes finds a way to escape her rooms, and the last time ended up in a club called Tower, run by Peter Titon. Peter is still associated with the Annex, run by his cousin Ash, but he is spending more time at Tower and plans to give up most of his duties at Annex. When he meets Azalea, he is intrigued, and even more so when he finds her running from his club in a bad ...more

This is the first time Ive read a book by this author and I thoroughly enjoyed the story.

Azalea is a twenty-three year old who has been severely protected by her mother her entire life. So rigidly, she sneaks out to explore a sex club, Tower, late one night when her mother is at a meeting. Here she catches the eye of Peter, the owner, who takes a shine to her instantly.

This is a fast paced book that is easy to read. Its BDSM lifestyle choice is only one focus. The other key element to the story
