It's always a risk to start a book from a new author and you can have it in two ways... Love or hate it but it's always a risk.
The thing that make me choose a book is the cover and also the blurb and this cover and the name gave me mixed feelings... But once I started to read it I was doomed.
Ebony Olson has a dark, hot and intense writing that will give you the goose bumps and so much more.
Black Mark's Resistance is the first book from the Black Mark series and it's way better than I thought.

The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Ebony Olson delivers and emotional charged read that provides intensity on a different level. The read was engaging, rich, some suspense, some drama, and well-developed character that play the plot perfectly.

Mora had a life that could only be called difficult to be nice. The distinct difference in her attracts that attention of a man that comes with his own set of complication and even danger, Darius. You will get wrapped up in this read and be waiting for the next installment.

Black Mark's Resistance is an interesting story. At first I was a bit reluctant to read it, as I wasn't sure that I would be able to handle the content. It turns out, the author has a way with words that explains everything with the right amount of intensity without it being over the top.

Mora is a personal assistant, working for Stuart. Stuart is running late from a meeting, and has asked Mora to entertain the clients until he can arrive. The client does not want to wait, so Mora makes arrangeme

O.M.G!

I absolutely love this book! I was completely mesmerized with this steamy and suspenseful story. The characters are well developed and have so much depth. The story line is refreshing and has an interesting twist to the common boss/coworker love story. I became completely engrossed and totally forgot it had a cliffhanger!

Mora is such a fascinating woman! She is not afraid to tell you what she thinks, which I love. She has so ma

I really enjoy this book. I liked Mora a lot and this book really had me tearing up when I found out what happen to her and when Darius treated her the way she did. I'm always rooting for the main characters to get together but I was like "yeah" when Mora told him he messed up and she was done with him. I couldn't believe he did what he did and that her mother was so despicable. I thought the characters were well done and the descriptions were done well too. I really liked that it was such a fas ...more

I am a music lover, so the cover of this book caught my attention and made me want to learn more. I decided to try it out and see how much music was in the book compared to romance and such. I did find romance, I did find intrigue, and I did find music.

But I was a bit taken aback by the amount of sex and eroticism in the book. I was not expecting that and was a little shocked by it, though I am by no means a prude and have read other books of similar, or worse, nature. But I was not expecting i

This is the first book in the Black Mark series and started the series off with a bang. Very emotional read with lots of twists and surprises. Mora and Dorius are two wounded souls who bring comfort to each other. The book is well written with a strong storyline and characters with lots of depth.

This is the first book in the Black Mark Resistance series and a first for me by Ebony Olson. Mora was abused by her mother in almost every way possible and did not learn how to express emotions in the normal ways. She uses her cello and her boy toy to express herself and to get out her frustrations. Mora feels that she has to prove herself to the world and make her own way even though she has a very powerful father that is now a part of her life and is willing to do anything to make up for lost ...more

I liked it, the characters are very well delineated, their temperaments and personalities are very well described, it has an excellent narrative.
We have two protagonists who inadvertently fall in love again, although they do not know that they were already in love with each other and this in a way gives me a plus to the story.
This book came to me for an honest review for inkitt.
It is a good romantic novel, does not really leave you with many doubts of what happens in history.

Mora didn't have a great start in life up until she was six she was physically and mentally abused by her mother then brought up by her grandma she was still traumatised but achieved so much. The way she coped with her life and stress was sex, bleeding and her music. This book is very good the story line and strong characters really take you on a journey you don't want to leave or stop. Rich, successful businessman has fun with intern but doesn't want forever, she wants a materialistic life but ...more

Fascinating... Next? Please?

Holy crap!! While typically avoiding explicit materials, this one was borderline for me in that aspect. Fortunately, the REST of it was every positive adjective available; thoughtful, thought-provoking, intense, enticing, light, fun, easy, deep, enthralling, disturbing, disturbingly addictive. I would LOVE to see the continuation after recommending it to everyone I know who doesn't shy at the first hint of eroticism as I usually do; even those who do. Who knows? They

Black Mark was a an emotional 5 star read.
This is book one in the Black Mark series.

I was pulled in right from the start. My heart went out to Mora for what she endured growing up.
There are so many things in this story, my emotions were all over the place.
There is suspense, drama, very hot erotic sex, love, and pain.

This is my first read from Ebony, you get pulled right in with the writing. The characters come right off the pages. I can't wait to read more from this series. Warning it does end

Never a dull moment in this book. The characters were well written and the story line was well developed.I loved how the intimate scenes were thought out instead of carelessly thrown in and ruining the appeal of the book. I will most defiantly be returning for the rest of the series, I need to know how Mora and Darius handle their "relationship" ...more

A good story. I received a copy from Inkitt for an honest review. This is a story of pain, suspense, and so much more. I am not a fan of series as they end in cliffhangers. I really liked this one as it is a story of real life and how an abused person deals with life. I recommend it.

This is the first book in the Black Mark Series as well as my first read by Ebony Olson. It is well-written, has an excellent storyline, well-developed characters and plenty of drama, suspense, pain, hope, love, and erotic scenes.

I volunteered to review an advance reader copy of this book.

I really enjoyed reading the book. The female main character was well developed. U don't really get to know much about the male main character. Though the book has plenty of background stories that lets us know more about Mora, we don't really get to know Darius.
The book is the first in its series and i hope the sequel will reveal more about both characters and further develop their relationship.

I received a pdf copy of this book from Inkitt Exclusive Reads. It's a really good erotica novel with a really good storyline. I was actually surprised by how things turned out in the end. I enjoyed Ebony Olson's writing and character development. There were just a few minor holes /details that I didn't like. But overall a great read. ...more

This is a voluntary and honest review for an advanced copy.

This is the first book i have read from this author so i was not sure what to expect, i can honestly say i was not disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this first part of the series, once i started i could not put the book down.

The main characters had a raw realness to them. Some of the subject matter is tough and the coping mechanisms for Mora are a hard read but the author has not gone into too much detail, just enough so that y

Black Mark's Resistance
by Ebony Olson

This is the first book I read in this series, and I’ll definitely want to read the rest of them. It's a charming and mystic story with a cliffhanger. The characters are passionate, intense, quiet but strong. The story deals with realistic problems and growing up not love but being able to over come it and becoming a better person for it. The emotions is hard sometimes and soft other times. It will make you sad with tears on your face sometimes but it can make

I loved this book so much. I was unsure of what to expect but I was so caught up that I read it in one day.
Mora is so unlike the love struck damaged heroines I am used to. She is young but knows what she wants and does what she needs to get it. Darius is head strong and determined. I figured out that they had met before pretty early in the story but I was worried that neither of them would be willing to admit it. Their love is explosive and yet tender. I was rooting for them all along the way.
