Set in a lush dystopian world, this dark romance has the best combo: betrayal, greed, lust, and depravity. It's like the 7 sins were rolled in flour, baked to perfection, then sprinkled with some powdered goodness. And my mouth (and other bits ;) watered for each bite! Soooo good.

Trent Evans is one of my go-to authors, so I was expecting fab writing. I knew I'd get sucked into his worldbuilding - he always has this way of making me feel like I'm stepping into his stories. In this case, the deep

Darkness, pain, fear, and ecstasy - That is at the core of Jon and Yulia’s journey. My mind told me I should hate what was happening, but I loved every minute of this book from the exciting storyline underpinning the, as the title intimates, depraved control Jon takes. I am still shuddering in delight at the way this author transports the reader into the pages, leaving you yearning for more as he holds you on edge for chapters at a time. Fabulous read from an author that always leaves me begging ...more

Another well written journey into deep submission.

This had all the elements you expect from a Trent Evans book, I liked the futuristic setting and hope to read more about Tom and Petra. I also enjoyed how the need for Yulia to submit and for Jon to dominate was portrayed. If you are a fan of this genre you will definitely love this book. I was given an Arc to read and this is my honest review.

This author has such a devious mind. It is almost frightening in its depravity. His taunting words inflame your sensibilities and push you to want to read more. Jon and Yulia have such a twisted relationship that you need to find out what happens next.

I read and reviewed a copy of this book.

Wow.
Just WOW!
I love Trent Evans' writing! He never fails to provide his readers with wonderfully complex, multi-layered characters AND plots as well as SCORCHING sizzle that flames off the screen of your eReader. All of which combined with his superb writing skills, grab the reader by the throat AND heartstrings & swirl us into the world he's created.
And this one is no exception & I loved it!
I found myself torn emotionally as Yulia (heroine) is captured by the redoubtable Jon (anti-H) for nefari

I love Trent Evans and was thrilled to get to read this newest book by him. The book kept me reading right through to the end in one sitting. The adventure, fighting, mysteries, sex and war time secrets keep you guessing what will happen next, but always enough to keep you turning the pages. Yulia is the daughter of slain rebel leader and Jon Rexall has been assigned to capture her. Jon is a HKU, or Hunter, Killer Unit and Ravisher. Only, as time goes by and Jon is using his unique gifts to cont ...more

I think that there comes a time every time I read a Trent Evans book where I'm just like what is wrong with me that I find this so hot. The answer to that question, BTW, is nothing, there is nothing wrong with me, his writing is just that hot.

I love dystopian kind of books, and this is definitely one of those. There is a lot of intense action going on in this one, and I spent a lot of time wondering how things were going to work out, and how the good guys are going to figure out how to save eve

A new book by Trent Evans. It took me a little while to get into this book because I was trying to make sense of the world, the events and the different characters. Because of this I had a hard time getting a connection with the characters.

I did really enjoy the scenes between Yulia and Jon they were intense and powerful. and the journey and realizations of Jon being aware of who he was and wanted to be.

A deliciously dark romance. The twists are so surprising that you don't see them coming. I was surprised several times. I like scifi that makes you think while giving you the heat you want. This story really meets those needs. The premise is very unique and wow that HKU is mind-boggling in his abilities. If you like your sci-fi hot, sexy, and dark this is the book for you. ...more

Couldn’t put it down…
This steamy page-turner keeps you on the edge of your seat from the beginning to the end. Rexall, a brutal ravager completely dominates his hostage Yulia. You want to hate him but Yulia doesn’t even hate him. His dark sadistic domination fills her deep masochistic need.

Set in some depressing dystopian future this is really a love story, albeit very gritty and hot and sometimes painful but still a love story. I couldn’t stop reading until the end, and then I was thinking, now what, it’s a bit like losing a good friend when you finish a really brilliant absorbing book. John is human but somehow, more, created by the corrupt ruling faction, he is enhanced and his entire raison d’etre is to hunt down and then force submission until he has broken his prisoner and t ...more

This is another intense book by an intense author. This book is set in the future of Earth. There is a war going on and HKUs (Hunter-Killer Units) were created. They are men that are enhanced compared to a normal man; faster, stronger, bigger. Yulia is taken by Jon, a HKU. Yulia is the daughter of a slain opposition leader. Jon is to train her sexually, to control her. But Yulia finds that her body craves the dark degrading things that Jon subjects her to. When she is rescued, she insists that J ...more

I’m not sure when this is supposed to be set, but it is definitely in the future. There are different factions at war with Yulia’s late father being the former leader of one. Yulia is taken captive by Jon. We don’t know exactly what Jon is until much later in the book, but he is most impressive. What starts as a captive/captor relationship transforms into a D/S relationship as Jon goes through some changes and Yulia figures out her needs. Then they do their best to keep The Resistance alive and ...more

To say Jon is good at his job is an understatement, he captures women and training them for buyers. His latest is Yulia, the daughter of dead resistance fighter. But Yulia is not like like others that he has trained before. This story is so indepth and beautiful dark and twisting! The characters draw you in with their complex emotions and actions that keeps your attention all the way through. A roller coaster ride well worth the emotional ups and downs!

This is my first novel by Mr. Evans. I now know just what I was missing!

The intensity of this dark romance was firecracker loud!

I was grabbed by his writing from the beginning. The imagery, just amazing. I felt I was there in the woods with Yulia. With her in her imprisonment! My heart would beat frantically with hers! The tears leaked down my cheeks as hers did!

I will go TBR Mr. Evan's other books as soon as I've posted this review!

This story grabbed and amazed me!

Fast-paced and steamy dark sci-fi read with loads of drama, suspense and twists and turns. Jon has been designed to capture, break and control his prisoners but when it comes to Yulia is latest victim. What will happen when Yulia enjoys what Jon makes her feel and takes him with her when she is rescued? Great world building and an entertaining story that draws you in from beginning to end. I loved it.

TEvans books are always very intense. They are not light BDSM books with male characters that let the female get away with being feisty. No, no, no. These books are always hard-core, dirty, shameful almost forced submission. You may secretly feel that you find his book deliciously intriguing while telling yourself that the strong woman that you are should be horrified with things Jon forces Yulia to endure, or perhaps you may be outright offended by the degrading situations she seems to start to ...more

I simply didn't want this story to end. It is a masterpiece of writing. It might be titled "dark romance" but it is truly an "enlightened" work on relationships. It is just a mesmerizing read that makes one think about so many things. Even when you are "finished" you aren't finished with this book.

I'm a newbie to the author, Trent Evans, and this title intrigued me. So, I decided to give it a try. The beginning was a little confusing because it felt like I entered his world in the middle. By the middle of the book I was thoroughly involved in his world. Please be warned, this book is not for the faint of heart, but if you enjoy deep, dark and dirty stories with an unimaginable amount of depravity then this is the book for you! It is expertly written with well formed and robust characters. ...more

Jon Rexall is an HKU (Hunter-Killer Unit), or Ravager, and was genetically engineered to be stronger, bigger, faster, just more than a normal man. His job is to track Yulia down and break her. He has done the same thing to other women countless times as a weapon for the TSS. Once he has her, though, things are changing. This will be his last assignment. She will be his.
This book is an extremely dark read, so make sure you know what you are getting yourself into. Luckily, I love the shadows. Yuli

7☆ I think I'm in love.

This is absolutely fabulous. No way could I just go to sleep after this :) I fell for Jon Rexall after the first few pages. He gets even more perfect as the story progresses. It's also a pretty good story but, for me, Jon was easily the best part.
This is my first book by this author and if this is a good example of his writing I intend to read everything he's written.

A USA TODAY bestselling author, Trent Evans specializes in several flavors of BDSM erotic romance and erotica. Putting pen to paper since he was a wee lad, he decided to try to share some of the tales cooked up in his fevered imagination. Some readers might not be horrified at what he writes. He tries to write stories that appeal to both women and men (wow, threading the needle), but will follow w ...more
