"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 mans

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 hi

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 bec ...more

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!

I read this immediately after reading Beast by Measha Stone . The first book in the series was a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. And I bet you guessed from the title that this a Rapunzel retelling. I'm gonna say it again, consent seems really optional in this series...Peter (Ash's cousin) from the first book is our hero. He too is a dominant, he too has a club, and one of his job's is keeping the ladies in line with his particular brand of discipline. The rest of this is spoiler-y.

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 Azalea’s 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 eith ...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. Th

Tower is an erotic retelling of Rapunzel. Azalea slips from her overprotective mothers townhouse to explore her sexual curiosity at the newly opened BDSM club Tower when she catches the eye of owner Peter. When he later recognises her address on an errand to collect a debt he takes her as partial payment.

I liked Azalea, she was feisty and innocent and unafraid to explore her darker desires. Peter recognises this early on and realising he only has her in his possession for a few short weeks sets

When Peter meets Azalea he can’t keep his eyes off of her but when he drove her home something bothered him so when he had to go to collect a debt and found her locked away he took her. This is a fairy tale retelling but it stops right there but if you like it a little naughty you are going to want to read it

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.

This one wasn’t as good as the first as it was a bit predictable and I wasn’t a huge fan that she traded one situation that she didn’t have control over for another but the ending made up for it.
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.

Another good retelling with a dark twist. I liked Peter in the last novel and it was nice seeing his story played out.

I honestly only read SMUT when I am going through a really bad reading slump to jolt me out of my laziness. Most of the times, the books turn out to have pointless plots with the world's most horribly obtuse heroines. Some, very rare books have plots that are both decent and intriguing.
Unfortunately, this was not one of those books. The fact that this book has over 4 rating baffles me, not because I judge people who like SMUT but

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 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. S

I found this book to be a smouldering, seductive, mysterious and intriguing with a little BDSM thrown in just to make it more exciting.
This is my first time reading Maesha Stone's work and I am hooked. This book is well written and kept me on the edge of seat from the first chapter til the end of the book. I do wish it had contained an Epilogue.
The chemistry between this spunky heroine and her savior, which is how I consider Peter, is so obvious to me maybe not so much to Azalea but her eyes wo

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 p

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 'acquiring' her agai

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 fol

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. In ...more

Captivity is Her Normal

Another amazing read by my all time favourite author. Ms Stone never disappoints her readers and she certainly hasn’t 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 what’s coming all the way through the book, oh what dark twists in this great plot!
