Synopsis:
Just how far will one woman go to fulfil her fantasies? I prefer to chase the news, not be the news. But when the delectable Liuz, with his uncannily accurate perception of my secret desires weaved its way into my life, it wasn’t long before I was in way too deep, submerged and intoxicated with a passion I was afraid was more than I could handle. Or was it? Because although my heart was overwhelmed with feelings I had no resistance against, and while my deceitful body was consumed by a burning passion, I still had a plan. A plan I prayed would keep me afloat as I was pushed to the very edge of my limits, while the journey got tougher than even my wildest flights of fantasy could have imagined. I claimed him and I felt that he was rightfully mine. My heart simply couldn’t beat without a permanent connection between our hearts, minds and bodies. Losing was not an option, not when my sanity depended on winning him. Because I would, quite literally, do anything for him.

My Review:
                              *****~~~~~~~~May contain a few spoilers~~~~~~~~~~*****

I'll admit that I didn't read the premise at first, I simply saw the cover, & it's from one of my go to authors, hells yeah I'm going to read it. Alright, the cover?? Smoking hot, the synopsis?? Sounds amazing. The execution?? Yeah not so much. My initial thoughts were "Holy crap it's a Lily Harlem book, this going to be awesome!!". *starts reading*

First few chapters, the book is good, Hannah (the female lead) is having fun seeking out her kink, now that is cool, she's found a man she can share her fantasies with and she is going all in. Woohoo, hot fun, kinky stuff...okay a little strange, but hey we all get down differently  (this is when she prints off ten copies of his picture, and rolls around on the floor masturbating to it)...  Then out of nowhere the book went left.

As I read I'm thinking okay, it's not kosher but everyone becomes a little stalkerish when they first start to date someone...no wait, she's ...wait...she really has become a stalker.  I mean you ask your friends who know him/her everything you can get on them, you might check out their facebook page, but this is a whole other level. She went to his house, climbed up on the flowers and watched him, then when she almost got busted, had to cut her hair and dye it so he wouldn't know it was her & there begins the lying & sneaking around. O_O  Okay WOW WOW (peter griffin voice) Hannah is now clearly a few ladles short of a full bucket. I just can't....

Yeah at the beginning, I was all about the story, it had a strong kink flavor & clearly very hot, then somewhere along the way it hung a left into weirdsville & headed straight down stalker drive & jumped the curb onto Batshyt Crazy Hill.  I mean girl was stalking him, ... I feel like I wondered into a Lifetime "what not to do " movie.  Hannah clearly isn't all there & poor Luiz has NO idea the kind of  woman who has attached herself to him.  Not that Luiz himself is a stand-up guy, he lied about where he lived, about who he was & what he did.  Then when in trouble decided to trade his 'girlfriend' to make his payments to some seriously bad guys.  Little miss stalker watched this happen & showed up. Okay I'm all for ride or die with your man, & I thought it's ok because he told her & she showed up knowing what was going to happen. Everything that happened after that just made no sense to me & killed the mood of the story. It went from having fun & kinky sex to being used (well if you know about it and show up that's agreeing to be used so that's okay) but then she described him first as a dangerous looking guy & it turned her on, then when it comes time to do the deed, she doesn't like him anymore, but still goes thru with it because of Luiz, who also doesn't like the guy & doesn't want her near him. If nobody wants to have sex but does it anyway, where is the fun??

Hannah went full-on-stalkerville after that; & it was hard to finish reading because it was no longer a fun sexy read, but the inner workings of crazy stalker especially with what she does in the end of the book.  I knew she was going to do some crazy shyt when she mentioned that she didn't want him moving on to other women. I just knew only crazy could come after that statement & she definitely made it come out.   I have to admit that I really good chuckle (no that's a lie) it was a full belly incredulous laugh because I just couldn't believe it, she better NEVER get mad or be stupid enough to say anything about what she did because without a doubt he will kill her!!

The sex scenes were hot until everything else happened & then it became just creepy, slimy & debase. There is a fun debauchery & then there is this.  I kept asking myself how could this story have gone so far left.  I kept thinking did the author put the book down, leave for several months then come back??? It's two different tones, two different writing ideas, hell it should be two different books then I looked at the cover...ahhhh that explains it, there are two authors.

2 1/2 stars (steamy with potential) for the sex scenes but the rest of the book killed what should have been an awesome erotica.

Why not read and see if you find the same things & come back & let me know.
