Jun 28, 2019 rated it it was amazing
Dark and Depraved Erotic Romance!

“Fallen” picks up right where “Flawed” left off with heart pounding action, suspense and heightened apprehension. Frequently, serial novels tend to lose steam along the way but with “Fallen”, the second Dark Necessities Prequel, the suspense continues to intensify along with the scorching heat! The twists and turns just keep coming, hurtling the reader on a roller-coaster ride of emotion. “Fallen is a dark, twisted, highly emotional psychological chiller/thrille

I just finished 'FALLEN', & Ms Brandon again demonstrates what a beautifully twisted, brilliant & maniacal GENIUS she is in crafting a story.
Ethan (anti-H) has re-captured his Little Flower, Lily (h), & she has MUCH to answer for: imprisoning him, running from him, betraying his trust. But will Lily be able to survive Ethan's punishments & 'lessons'? Will Ethan be able to continue to rein in his 'darkness' when his ange

This psychological, emotional, twisted and all around amazing book will have you riding a rollercoaster of emotions and feelings. Hang on tight! You’re in for the ride of your life!!

Let me just say Felicity Brandon is a master at dark romance. It’s the kind of writing that has you questioning why you love it so much, but you can’t stop reading! She had me hooked on Ethan with part one, but part 2 is WOW!! I love her descriptions, situations and all around writing period. I have never felt so wr

OMG another out the park read by Felicity! I have read her other books and I am blown away by each one and I have to say that Lily and Ethan's story is amazing.

Lily escapes her captor and things she is free but she isn't because she still had Ethan and he is dark and brooding and willing to do anything to keep her but he is not exactly what you would call a good guy. He can be evil and do things to Lily that are not nice but Lily can't help what her heart wants. She is going to have to decide wh

Flawed is a must read before you read Fallen as this continues where Flawed ends.

After the way Flawed ended I couldn’t wait to read this. I wasn’t disappointed.

Ethan and Lily’s story continues...

Crikey what can I say about this book... it was bloody brilliant. I was literally stuck to my kindle from start to finish.

Fabulous dark and twisted read. I can’t wait to read the final book of this trilogy.

WOW!!! Ms. Brandon has written another book that I just floored me. But I have to be honest here, I still don't like Ethan and I hurt for Lily. She wants to do the right thing now that she knows what he is about but at the same time, she still loves and wants to please him. And just because I don't like Ethan at the moment doesn't mean I don't find him intriguing! He's dark, he's twisted and he knows what he wants. I stayed up late into the night reading this because I just couldn't put it down! ...more

Wow, just wow, I think to myself as I shut the book and immediately start this review. Felicity Brandon never, ever disappoints me when I pick up one of her stories, and in this second installment of this trilogy (Flawed is part one), she took me by the hand and led me down the proverbial rabbit hole into a domain of dark love, and I mean really dark love, but love It truly is. This is what this author does so well. How is it I can recognize love within this type of bizarre scenario? Because she ...more

The second book in the series. It is not a standalone, you need to read these books in order.

The book starts right off where the previous book ended with Lily running away. I actually enjoyed this book more than the first one. The relationship between Lily and Ethan is establish and now that she knows his secret she has a choice to make and I loved seeing her struggle with her emotions.

Lily is so torn by what she feels for Ethan and her feeling of what is right and wrong. And those clash and con

This book made my feelings ricochet like a squash ball around a court

Wow, wow, wow. There were times when I almost liked Ethan, and there were times when I hated that man - especially by the end! How Ms Brandon aims to convince me that he deserves Lily is beyond my ability to imagine. I just know that he is one sexily gorgeous but very bad man.

There were a couple of occasions when I wanted to give Lily a good shake out of her naivety. However she IS only 18 and therefore I could understand these

I'm not sure how Felicity Brandon does it, but she just gets to me with her dark & twisty self. Fallen is another story that got under my skin is crazy ways that horrified me in ways that had me conflicted. See, I wanted to look away, and yet, I couldn't look away either because my dark & twisty self needed to be fed. Ethan is a bad mofo, and while I did have some empathy for him, it's gone now, and I want Lily to end him. Can he be redeemed, well, that's what Ms. Brandon does so brilliantly, he ...more

Fallen picks up right where we were left in Flawed.
It’s scary,intense and had my heart pounding and I can’t get enough!
Ethan’s feelings for Lily are getting more complex.
He wants,he demands so much more from her.
He sees himself as her protector and as her disciplinary.
Lily also knows what she feels for Ethan is twisted and wrong.
But she can’t deny her feelings.
In this book I feel Lily getting more stronger.
She is slowly starting to lose the innocence and naivety she had in bk.1.
She’s starting to

Lily is conflicted. What is she supposed to feel about her “crazy lunatic serial killing boyfriend”? She loves him. And that’s the problem.
Fallen starts just where the last ended and man is it intense!!
How will Lily survive? Will she remain the same sweet, naive girl, or will she adapt? I’ll be honest, this book, this series, is a roller coaster ride. It is a ride for the characters. And it was also a serious ride for my emotions. I struggled in the first book to like Ethan at all. (I mean, c’m

Intensely Twisted!

This is an unusual, sensual, erotic, intense story uniting a confessed serial killer with an innocent and confused young woman. Ethan knows exactly who he desires and the behaviors he will accept. He is a forceful Dominant, Lily a fervent submissive.

I love the way we see shame vs. anticipation, debasement vs. arousal, misery vs. elation, potency vs. subservience, humiliation vs. enthusiasm, apprehension vs. compliance, and punishment vs. pleasure. I love the way my emotions are

The highly anticipated book 2 in Felicity Brandon’s Dark Necessities series, Fallen blew my mind. I don’t know how she does it but the story just keeps getting better and better. The complex turns in the storyline and the intriguing characters. Felicity has put my emotions on a rollercoaster through out this book. I’m not sure where the story can go next but I sure am game for the ride. In Fallen we continue to enjoy Ethan and Lily’s whirlwind romance. The all consuming obsession and passion tha ...more

A Fallen Stolen Future

I am still very drawn in this 2nd book of the Dark Necessities Prequel Series of Ethan and Lily’s story but still unsure if I like either of these two totally flawed, dark, fallen characters in their twisted journey and view of life with their obsessional love for one another! But nevertheless I can also guarantee to readers that Felicity Brandon always produces absolutely amazing reads, that keep you reeling and raw, with not much happiness for Ethan and Lily, even though

WOW what an intense twisted story where there is very little light or even hope only darkness every where you turn and no way out, Ethan is one aggressive powerful and very overwhelming master and so clever and he is becoming down right scary in his control of Lily his light and she is so sweet and wants to do the right thing obey or not to obey and be punished.

Oh my Lily is in so much trouble with Ethan. Such dark delicious trouble. This is not your usual romance but Ethan is anything but normal. Lily is such an innocent but she can't help the way she is drawn to Ethan's Darkness! I just need to know if Ethan is going to continue with his murderous ways or will Lily be able to redeem him, or will Lily be able to handle the future, is there a possible HEA for these two troubled people? I am sure Ethan loves Lily just as she loves Ethan, can they find h ...more

This was part two of Ethan and Lily's story. Intense. Emotional. The chemistry between these two is off the charts. But Ethan's secrets are no longer a secret from Lily. However, what will prevail? Lily's need to do right, or her love for Ethan? And what is going to happen at Ethan's family's home? Lily is scared and I'm scared for her! It is amazing what Ms. Brandon creates. Cannot wait for part three!

This is the 2nd past of a trilogy, and what an intense emotional and psychological thrilling read this is. Ethan has recaptured Lily, and her transgressions require punishment. This story is about obsession and depravity, and is a dark, twisted, thrilling, raw, gritty, and powerful, with an abundance of angst, mayhem, emotion, secrets, and love. I was totally captivated throughout this addictive page turner and I cannot wait to read more in this intriguing series.

Ethan is getting out of hand!

Very fast reading in this book! Lily seems very simple to me and Ethan extremely aggressive! It’s like she really wants to take it too far. She knows about his past, then seems shocked about it like he wasn’t serious the first time. That’s why she seems simple to me. Dying to read the next continuation, I have to keep reading about them, knowing so much from the first 3 novels. Great reading as always Felicity. Just too fast! Also great sex as usual.

The depravities of Ethan just get darker. His sheer dominance over Lily is frightening and intensely erotic. Even after confessing his murderous past Lily can justify her passionate feelings for Ethan and ignore the angel/devil voices in her head. While reading this book you forget how young Lily is and how her perception and passion is overshadowed by Ethan’s sheer will and magnetic personality.

I read and reviewed a copy of this book.

After reading taken trilogy by Ms Brandon, I had thought there couldn't be a less likable hero than Connor. No, Ethan tops him. I really wish felicity writes hero to fall in love with because they just exists in books. This love story of lily n Ethan is as twisted n dark as it can be. The power balance is never equal. The antihero always holds more or less the whole power. But hats off of thinking n executing a brilliant idea ...more

I found this story to be very compelling reading as we continue the very dark romance between Lily and Ethan. She is struggling to accept Ethan for what he has done as his dominance gets heavier. There are many twists and turns and the story develops easily with another cliff hanger ending. I can't wait for the third part of this tale. Well worth reading if you enjoy dark romances. This is my honest opinion. ...more

This book falls farther down the rabbit hole! I enjoyed this book even more then the first one. I wanted a darker book and I definitely got it with this next book!

The story starts where the other one left off. So there is no gap. Ethan gets out of the basement and gets Lily back. And boy oh boy is he upset with her!

Like I said this one gets darker, because now Ethan doesn't feel like he has to hold back now that Lily knows his secret. . .

This book is just as twisted as the first! I truly had to take a break and read a nice book and then finish this one. Ms Brandon you do not disappoint. I officially hate Ethan! Poor Lily is so confused. I am now on pins and needles to see what’s going to happen after that ending. Just WOW!

So I’m going to start with this book is written very well and has a great story arc. Since it is a series it picks up where the 1st one ended and ends in a cliffhanger. At times I really felt like lily had to have had stock Holme syndrome with the way she acted to Ethan when he did certain things (no spoilers here). At other times I felt like the connection was genuine and they really did care for each other. Also I’m still not sure how I feel about the mind reading concept. For those reasons I’ ...more
