This is the 4th book in my series. This is essentially my first draft. I write them, then edit them later, keep that in mind. (R) on each chapter is for me to know which ones I have revised not a rating, although this book contains ADULT content, that is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18, but I can’t really enforce that so.🤷
THIS IS THE DARKEST BOOK IN MY SERIES. THE FIRST 3 HAVE BEEN TAME COMPARED TO THIS ONE.
Mature sexual situations- Not appropriate for anyone under the age of 18. SEX. So much SEX. I’m going to become your new favorite smut dealer. 🤣 (that’s what my friends refer to me as, a smut dealer.)
Physical abuse- Whether consensual or otherwise. (These lines will be blurred.) 😈 Everyone needs a good ol spanking every now and again.
Emotional abuse and mental abuse. I’m gonna push you on this one, A LOOOT, so buckle up, buttercup.
👏DEGRADATION👏 KINK 👏 I can not stress this enough. If all you know is vanilla missionary, and the idea of having a primal Dom dominate and degrade you, has you drawing a cross over yourself, this isn’t the series for you. 🤣
Marijuana, alcohol use, and drug use - I smoke for pain management, and have written various chapters high. 🤷♀️ But I don’t drink because my parents are alcoholics, and I become insanely depressed when I drink. I grew up around meth and people snorting things like Ritalin, and my dad once snorted blow off the coffee table, my little brother used to play on. 😅 So I know these things can trigger people with their own past experiences, anyway since I’m naming triggers I added it.
Cursing- that would make your grandma cry, and pray for your soul. 🤣 I know mine would be if she knew I was writing this.
I wouldn’t consider this a “dark romance” but it has its moments. Keep in mind this is under Fantasy and Erotica, not Romance. If you came here hoping to read a grand sappy love story, no fam, this ain’t it. Lol Their young love is about as TOXIC as it gets. Various parts of this series are based on my personal experiences. I wrote this dealing with my own traumas, and some parts might disturb your peace. I think that about covers it. Happy reading! 😈
