Catch My Fall by Ella Fox: 99 cent sale
Author: Gemma James
Genre: New Adult/Dark Erotic Romance
Release Date: July 22, 2014
I’ve been obsessed with Rafe Mason since I was thirteen. The messed up part about this story is that I still want him, even now.
Now that he’s holding me captive on an island.
Rafe has his reasons for doing what he’s doing, and if I’m honest, I can’t blame him—I’m the girl who sent him to prison for a heinous crime he didn’t commit.
But now he’s free and the tables have turned…now he’s the one driven by obsession.
TORRENT is a new adult dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content that includes sexual situations and violence. Intended for adult readers 18+ only. If you are easily offended by dark subject matter, this story is probably not for you. Part one of the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read.
Thanks to the author, I was allowed to read an ARC of this book. Before I begin, let me just say, pay heed to the warning on this book. It is a very dark book that explores a multitude of areas that some may find offensive. It is definitely a very deeply erotic book that goes further into the erotica world than many. If you can handle deeply sometimes disturbing scenarios, then read this book. It is very much an intense story that will keep you turning the pages.
The characters in this book are both deeply flawed people who have dealt with circumstances that they didn’t really create on their own. Alex sent Rafe to prison even though she loved him. As a an abused teenager, she saw no other way to deal with the threats her step-brother was making than to go along with him. Rafe leaves prison with one focus, revenge. The book gets deeply disturbing at times in dealing with the revenge that Rafe imposes on Alex. Through it all, Alex still knows she loves Rafe and she knows she has deeply disturbing urges of her own.
The best part of the book for me was when Rafe finally finds out why Alex sent him to prison. He realizes just how strongly he feels for her and that she had to deal with horribly events herself. The revenge he had just experienced becomes sickening for him when he fully understands the horror that Alex has lived. From this point on the story turns more towards a deeply erotic love story between these two characters.
Along the way, Rafe discovers a secret that shocks his world. In addition Rafe and Alex are hit with a major problem that may keep them from progressing in their relationship. Then…..holy cow, what a cliffhanger! The end of this book will definitely have you waiting on the next one! Four stars for this book.
