It takes special talent to make a novella with a pet/dog kink so damn boring.

Cool cover tho.

So more information has come out regarding this author and yeah. No. I don’t think I’ll be reading anything else by Dana Isaly. But if you want to, go ahead. But be aware that what you’re reading may have original source material elsewhere, even if it’s not in written form.

And some people who have sided with DI are saying that Eros’ trauma isn’t valid - fuck those people. If your goal was to alienate friends and readers, 👏🏻 hats off to you. It worked.

Games We Play was smoking hot and impressively kinky. A one-night stand between a gamer and a journalist conducting an interview; these two were deviantly perfect together…

How far is she going to let me take this?

Hidden behind his mask while he entices his fan base, Jack better known as the Joker is an enigma. On meeting his interviewer, he is blown away at how easily Quinlan can be led astray. The chemistry is instant, and their desires aligned. Neither will be p

i have recently found out that this author has plagiarised the works and ideas of voEROS (on tiktok) and other women in his community, and also used his childhood trauma in her book. therefore, i will not be reading and supporting any of her works anymore and i’ll be taking back my ratings for this book.

If you need proof, you can always look it up on his tiktok account or on patreon.

Not supporting this author anymore because look what vo.Eros (the audiobook narrator himself) revealed.
The mess omg. No one deserves to be treated this way.

Was ok... I think. Didn't care for the plot, character development or side characters tho, especially the nightclub scenes 🤡

I don't game but even I know this was about that corpse husband guy lol. Great cover tho 🔥

After so much has come to light about this author, I can no longer support this story or anything else she has written or writes in the future.

If you've purchased the audiobook the narrator of the book (vo.eros) is asking everyone to get a refund. If you want more information on what I'm talking about please visit (everything you need to read is all public posts)

I’m sick to my stomach knowing what I know now. This book makes me feel icky now, sexualizing others without their consent is disgusting. Profiting off it? Doing it for your own pleasure/gain? Horrific. Once again, I no longer support this author.

Do you own research but vo.EROS on instagram/tiktok has shared his story. My heart goes out to all those effected by this authors actions.

This was so much fun! I loved how he was a gamer and she was a reporter coming to do a story on him. Things get heated and they end up spending all night together. Their conversations were great (there was actually some depth to their conversations in such a short amount of pages) and I loved their chemistry! I do think it was weird that we got one random chapter from someone else's POV while they were at the club, and the ending seemed really rushed, but overall this was a really

Now I like a good erotica story every now and then, but this one just didn't hit the spot like I had hoped. To be perfectly honest, it read like the script of a porn movie...but not a good one. The premise sounded so good and the cover was alluring, so of course I had to try it. Sadly it just didn't work for me.

Now I love BDSM and have read my fair share of it. But this one...was not it for me

EDIT: 1 MARCH 2022

There have been evidence of this author plagiarizing the content from the original owner and as such I wouldn't be reading any books from her again (not that I planned on it since this book was fucking shit). Please put this author and her work in the nearest trashcan you can find.

This is either going to really work for you, or really… not work for you. I’m definitely on the ‘not’ side. This book has been so hyped lately so when I saw it was available on audio I was here for it. Unfortunately, the whole story was just not my kind of read. I was expecting like, a darker Jessa Kane type of book, but it wasn’t that. I’m honestly not sure what this was. If it worked for you that’s awesome and I’m not here to tell anyone not to read it, but yeah… no. Not for me.

Consider the curious cat dead.

Do you know what? I'm upping the rating coz I actually liked the writing somehow but the pet/degradation kink? I mean, it literally says in my bio that it's not my favourite.

I originally read and rated this back in September, but I felt like updating my review. Star rating is staying the same, just expanding on why.

This had EXTREME fanfiction/wattpad vibes. Heroine had insufferable pick-me girl energy. BUT, it's a super short novella, so you really have nothing to lose by giving it a shot. If you're curious, then read it. Why not. I don't care to dissuade anyone from reading this, just sharing my opinion.

The best way to describe my issue with this novella is that

So... I'm not a fan of this kink but I must admit the writing style sucked me in and I couldn't put it down! The writer mixed the sex scenes and didn't make it all about pet/master... But even with that, I imagined being her and going in a house to find that... picture me freaking out a little bit.

Now I can't wait to read Wes story and I might have fell in love with their little group.

Update: This author stole the narrator’s experience as a victim of SA and used it as a plot for her book.I’m disgusted.
Other than that this was just smut with a bunch of role play and bdsm elements for sock factor and some unnecessary drama.
However the guy who narrated the audiobook has one of the hottest voices I’ve ever heard and he’s obviously really talented.You’re the real star of the show baby.
