Ten years ago I allowed another man to take her to pay her father’s debt.

Her enemies want to take her again.
Blackmail her and hold her captive.

♥️Fantasy Land  Book Reviewer♥️

I am so in love with this series. Taunt Me is the second story in the Dark Odyssey series and these books keep getting darker and sexier. Taunt Me is a hard read at times due to the graphic and troubling themes that Faith walks us through. But that is what makes it such a good book also.

Charlotte is a young girl when this book starts out. She is in love and just starting her life with Gabe when she is kidnapped from her family. Ten years have gone by where she is used and abused by horrible men.

If you like mafia romances, you'll enjoy this book. It's the second book in the Dark Odyssey Series but is a standalone. Dark romance at it 's best. This book is steamy and guaranteed to set your Kindle on fire. Grab a comfortable chair and a cool drink because you'll need it. Once I started reading it was hard to put down. Dark, delicious and over the top. The book is full of suspense, danger and lots of drama. So many twists my head was spinning. A great read. "I received the ARC from Bad Boy ...more

Wow! Ms. Summer writes some very hot and sexy scenes in The Dark Odyssey books. I loved Tease Me, Nick’s story, and Taunt Me did not disappoint. Gabe’s story was just as hot, suspenseful, and dangerous as Tease Me.

Gabe lost his true love ten years ago. She was taken from him and he couldn’t do anything about it. In his world it was too dangerous for him to go after her since his entire family and any friends of the family were threatened if he went after Charlotte.

There are some dark themes going on here rating from rape all the way to cannibalism. Charlotte and Gabe had their immediate future planned out after one night of bliss. Unbeknownst to anyone life was about to be destroyed on a scale of earthquake proportions. Taken by a mobster that can destroy Gabe’s family even if they retaliated in an effort to save her, Charlotte had to endure ten years of abuse on all levels before returning home. It’s not a free pass though as the maniac that killed her h

Normally I don't always love the 2nd book more than the first when it's different couples, but I really believe that Taunt Me surpassed Tease Me, and please understand that I'm not saying that I didn't absolute LOVE Tease Me. Anyway, I guess it's because this story had way more suspense going on with a big danger kicker, not to mention the second chance at love situation going between Gabriel Giordano & Charlotte Revello. See, they were in love, like that forever love, when her father's business ...more

Tease me review-
It was alright, but there were way too many side characters who were never introduced & therefore really hard to keep track of. I kept having to go back & look up all the different names. I understand that the author was probably laying the foundation for later books, but I found it too confusing. Especially since, even though the characters were mentioned, they weren’t given with any kind of explanation. Like Vanessa, the book explained that she might have been Nick’s first love

A must read

I really enjoyed Charlotte and Gabriel’s story. As the second book in the series was really nice to see how Nick and Mia relationship progresses. Gabe was one of the sexiest alpha males I’ve read in a while and the love he had for Charlotte was intense and captivate. Charlotte was traumatic experience is one of those situations that can really make you hurt for her and I totally understood her fear and reluctance when she returned home to her old life. The story was well written and f

This was a terrific read and I am just loving this series. I thought Charlotte and Gabriel's story was intense, dark, twisted, poignant, tragic, steamy and suspenseful. My heart really hurt for these two as their love story, that starts out so sweet and beautiful takes a horrifying, violent and heartbreaking turn. This romance just consumed me. Be warned; your emotions will be put through a wringer and your nerves will be stretched to the breaking point as this couple gets another shot at a HEA. ...more

Ms. Faith Summers has a new and completely compelling Series on her hands with The Dark Odyssey releases.

Taunt Me centers around Gabriel and his "Godess", Charlotte. There is dramatic romance and absolutely everything to love. If ever there was a romance that will keep you hooked on every word, where you actually feel the emotions... I implore you to give Ms. Summers a chance.

I was beyond fortunate to have requested an advanced reader's copy of Taunt Me in exchange for my honest and voluntaril

OMG this is the second book in the Dark Odyssey series and HOLY HELL this was just as amazing as the first book. In this one we get to see Gabriel and Charlotte's story and holy hell what a story it is.

Gabriel meets Charlotte and wants her as his own but she can't be his because she is being sent to Italy to pay her fathers debt off. Fast forward ten years and Charlotte shows up at his door step begging for help and he is more than happy to help her out. Only he doesn't know that he is about to

I just loved reading this, dark and on the edge of your seat, story about Gabriel Giordano, co-owner of the Dark Odyssey and Charolotte Revello, his stolen goddess. It’s full of drama, haunting details, heartbreaking, suspenseful, hot sexy scenes and the hard earned happy ever after. Faith does a fantastic job getting the story out and I can’t wait to read what shenanigans Salvatore gets up to with Mimi. Kudos to Ms Summers on a great read!!

This book was a good read. I absolutely love Gabe and his brothers. Character of Charlotte was ok my issue with Charlotte character is if you were taken and indured 10 years of abuse and rape repeatedly you wouldn't go back to your first love and see how he's doing and then go and have sex with him over and over like she did after everything she went through you would be traumatized and need to be by yourself and find yourself again just saying.

3 to 3.5

Sex and mafia good combination. I would have given more, but I just felt that Charlotte’s 10 year‘s of trauma was glossed over. How do you just recover in a blink of an eye. No PTSD nothing. You would think after 10 years there would be some lasting effects. Not a thing and she just jumps into a sexual relationship with no problems. The relationship on top of everything isn’t vanilla to say the least.

The mafia stuff was good and the villains were evil. I will read the next.

I received the ARC from Bad Boy Update. So dark and sexy...I loved Gabe's story. Gabe lost his true love, Charlotte 10 years ago. Charlotte lived through her own hell and now vows to leave that life and start new. She thinks a quick goodbye to Gabe will be enough, until she lays eyes on him. All their chemistry and passion is still there, but with the danger that surrounds them will they ever be able to truly be together? This is packed with intrigue, danger, drama and sooo much passion...loved ...more

Salvatore and Mimi have been friends forever. He wants more and so does she but she has things in the past that he may not like.
This story has two story lines. The mafia and the love story. They intertwine.
Mimi and Salvatore have danced around their feelings forever but they can no longer deny it and are finally admitting it and acting on it. I really like this couple. Their relationship is sweet.
The family drama is intense. Secrets are revealed. Tragedy happens.
This one will keep your attention

This was the second book and was the story of Gabriel and Charlotte. This one was heartbreaking in the beginning. Gabe and Charlotte were going to be together forever but thanks to a bad deals and death the head of one of the mafia families kills some of Charlotte's family and takes her as payment. Turning her I to a prostitute for 10 years she finally gets her freedom at the hands of another monster.

Lost love returns!

This story was gut wrenching! So good. This is book 2 and though it is can be read as a standalone, you would benefit in reading book 1, cause you get Gabe's sad back story. In this book, Gabe, co-owner of the dark Odysee Club and part of the Giordano Clan, he tries to get over losing Charlotte, ten years ago. He is unraveling and things have to change. Meanwhile Charlotte is living a nightmare. These two are meant to be together but life is cruel. This is a very steamy, dark

I enjoyed this book but....

I really enjoyed this book and plan to read the complete series. However, I found it extremely disturbing and problematic that the heroine’s ordeal of what she went through when she was in captivity isn’t realistically addressed. It feels as though it was glossed over. Charlotte lived a traumatic life for 10 years!!! Once Gabe found out, I hoped for more intimacy rather than just passionate sex (f*cking). I would have like to have read more tenderness ( but that’s just
