How fun is that? She never says yes. He pushes her into a room and mummifies her. She's absolutely terrified. Is this consent? I wouldn't have stopped her. The guy will say — "she consented!
She coulda not consented. But you would have shot her. So she consents in retrospect. I can't explain it. As a feminist, it goes against everything I believe.
Nora continues to consent to all this by continuing to turn up at M's house. And the apparent illusion of non-consent is what makes the thrill so great for both parties. Aargh, my head is hurting. Just to make us all feel better, Laura Reese throws in two psychological explanations for these sisters' acquiescence to all the whippings and torture — the younger one always felt responsible for the death of her younger brother , and the older one feels guilty about her former indifference to the younger one.
So you know on some level this is why they want a man to beat them! But then she also throws in stuff like this speech by M : You're going to enjoy this, Nora. Once your freedom of choice is removed, once you give yourself over to me, you'll experience a new kind of liberation : complete abandon, no responsibility, no choice but to accept the pleasure and the pain I give you.
Okay, now here are a couple of quotes from the blurbs on the back: Fiendishly horny, unexpectedly affecting — Mary Gaitskell Sex is kinky and love is twisted. A daring erotic thriller — San francisco Chronicle The plot is sparked by a dangerous current of eroticism — Harpers Bazaar A compelling plot intertwined with steamy scenes. When's the last time you read raunchy sex and a good mystery in the same book?
Aren't we wicked? Well, now I must mention that on p M pulls out a video and asks Nora to watch it — "there are only two actors in this film, a man in his forties and a young girl. She appears to be nine or ten. It slightly bothers Nora but she sleeps with him anyway. Then later, this fiendishly horny novel gives us a detailed scene between our heroine Nora and M's Great Dane. That's right, it's a dog, not a euphemism.
I found that scene unexpectedly affecting, as Ms Gaitskell says. So, you know, no harm done! So according to Mary Gaitskell kiddieporn and sex with animals is fiendishly horny. I'm so glad I've only ever given Mary Gaitskell bad reviews. One last point - it's hard to know what Laura Reese thinks about people.
NO ONE! This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book is so pretty disgusting that the only thing that made me feel a little worse was reading that other people felt as disgusted by this book as myself.
In fact, I wish I did not read this book. The dog, pig scenes BDSM being portrayed as something completely distorted This is not erotica, this is a perversion in senses that are unbelievable. And I am not a purita This book is so pretty disgusting that the only thing that made me feel a little worse was reading that other people felt as disgusted by this book as myself.
And I am not a puritan or something, but it's been long a book or movie made me feel so disgusted like this one. I could write more and more, but I do agree with most people who rated 1 star for this book, so, most have already been stated.
I just lament I did not see those reviews before being exposed to such horrible experience. By the way, women writing about women being abused with no kind of justice in the end? Oh, the guy lost his hands? A woman was degraded to death and the other followed the same path as her sister, but so willing, she who seemed to be strong, and then No justice, no redemption And Michael - the name of an angel, was how 1st sister called him. Angel and Devil really in between the lines?
Not applicable at all, since she is maculated forever This is such a terrible book that, in fact, my rating is 0 of 5. Mar 11, Jeanne rated it did not like it Shelves: This is a misrepresentation of safe, sane and consensual BDSM. At first I really enjoyed the female POV, and found the mystery intriguing.
I chalked up the judgmental tone to her inexperience with the BDSM lifestyle. However, as the story progressed and the play became more and more extreme even crossing the line into bestiality and child porn, it became clear that the BDSM lifestyle was purposefully being misrepresent as corrupted and evil.
It was a very obvious ploy on the part of the author show his involvement in the BDSM lifestyle as indicated his villainous nature. Not only that to drawing these parallels between BDSM and despicable abuse like bestiality and the exploitation of children is as harmful as it is completely inaccurate. I strongly suspect it was done purposefully to make the reader identify with the protagonist's own confusion about where to draw the line, unfortunately it ends up coming off as eroticizing the despicably abuse.
Not to mention it gives the very inaccurate impression that any "normal" person can being turned into a twisted abuser by participating in BDSM play.
It's hard enough being a sexual minority. I would actually go as far to say this is thinly veiled anit-BDSM propaganda.
A cautionary tale meant to scary sexual adventurous women away from exploring their sexuality for fear of being raped, murdered or turned into a " perverted freak. This was one of the first reviews I posted to GoodReads and I own that it was very short, vague and passive in it's tone.
I hope this makes it clear why I gave this book a 1star review, but also why I enjoyed the first parts of the story. If you have questions feel free to leave a comment or seem me a message.
View 1 comment. I'm wondering if perhaps James is a pseudonym for Reese. I stumbled across Reese truly by accident. Reese's name popped up under mysteries, so I poked around in the readers' comments and reviews and was intrigued enough to download a copy for myself.
One writer even suggested Reese might be a pseudonym for Anne Tyler. I don't think so. It's a riveting book, and I have donated it to the library. But, beware. This is not a book for the fainthearted, nor for those whose libidinous impulses scare them into suppression of the distasteful, nor those who are uncomfortable with erotic and graphic sex. Now that I've created a stampede on the circulation desk, a few words about the plot.
Unit of competency details
This is a book about power and love and the depths to which we will go to achieve them. Nora is convinced that her sister Franny has been killed by M. Franny's body was discovered bound and marked with cuts, and Nora and the police discover that Franny's diary reveals her obsession with M.
The police, while suspicious, are unable to find evidence linking him to Franny's murder, so Nora decides to ingratiate herself with M.
She begins to discover, however, that she likes M. Franny, unbeknownst to anyone, would hitch rides to the ocean, and then step out into the cold water seeking ever larger waves.
She wants a wave so big and scary that she'll be sucked into a black hole of fear, remembering nothing. But each time she comes out here it seems harder and harder to reach that black hole, each time she has to push herself further. To her horror, she learns that M. Nora's suspicions begin to focus on Ian as the killer, and after she finds a roll of duct tape and some pornographic pictures of Franny and Ian hidden in Ian's closet, she turns him into the police and considers moving in with M.
Her perception of reality unravels after M. Note that if erotica or explicitness scares you, don't read this book. View all 5 comments. Dec 27, Beth rated it it was amazing Shelves: Wow where to start? My final character thoughts are Nora did everything wrong and M is everything that gives the BDSM lifestyle a bad name no safeword or get out options? I don't think so mate but this was honestly the best book I have read in a long time, it kept me guessing right from page one and just when I thought I had the answers it flipped the script on me again and I was just as lost as page one for the plot, my confusion and the roller-coaster ride I have just been on I give this book 5 stars and add it to my favourites list.
What in the hell did I just read???? I'm going to have to think about this one for a bit Holy hell! Review to come View all 15 comments. Mar 22, Ela rated it really liked it Shelves: View all 17 comments. OK OK, I'm always open to things when reading my romance and erotica books.
I've read disturbing and dark erotica, but this one, took it to another level. I really don't have much to say on this book.

Franny has always been a loner, until she met Michael aka M. M took his time to introduce Franny to his style of sex and intimacy. But after months of being together, Franny is found dead. Enters her sister Nora, who wants to find her killer, and af Story: Enters her sister Nora, who wants to find her killer, and after reading Franny's diary, she thinks M is the killer.
I don't know what's worst, what M made Franny do throughout the relationship or the extreme lengths Nora went through to prove M is the killer. Don't get me started on the pig scenes, seriously. To each his own with taste and the books that you like. When you read this book, you will either fall into two categories, I hate it or I like it, not sure who will love it, but it is what it is. The main problem for me that prevent me from liking the book, M, I really don't like him.
The first thing I have to comment on, is that I wasn't appalled by the book in the least. The author may have gone outside the box a bit with the BDSM but I think it was needed in order to build up the immorality of M. It was substantial to the story and kept my rapt attention throughout the book. This story had so many twists and turns and while reading I actually believed in the killers innocence. I even found myself rooting for his HEA.
I also have to add that this book is very very deep and t The first thing I have to comment on, is that I wasn't appalled by the book in the least. I also have to add that this book is very very deep and the characters in this book would be great case studies in the field of psychology.
I give a bunch of kudos to the author for the depth of the writing. Oct 17, Alex rated it it was amazing Shelves: Great twist near the end! Never expected it. Aug 30, Kristin rated it really liked it Shelves: So this ended up interesting. It wasn't the content that I found disturbing however, it was so boring! The first whole section about Franny bored me to tears.
It felt slow and drug on and on. The first section with Nora felt much the same. I needed a break. I don't like walking away from books.
A story left unfinished nags at the r So this ended up interesting. A story left unfinished nags at the recesses of my brain. So I picked it back up determined to see it through. Right up to the end I questioned M's guilt.
I thought early on that it was really Ian, until he beccame far to obvious. I even wondered about the detective, Joe. What the authors did that was amazing to me is somehow made me ignore the disgusting, and I mean disgusting, treatment of Franny and soften slightly toward M.
I fell right under the spell. Which is pretty awful to admit once all the truth was revealed.
Its a psychological thriller as well as a "who done it" and a look into, not so much BSDM for me, but more the sexual perversions of a sociopath and the lengths to which some people will go to feel whole. I couldn't put it down once I restarted it and I'm very glad I stuck with it. As far the the reviewers who gave it bad rating based on its disturbing content, I think that its clearly marked and we are thoroughly warned before hand that the content is not easy to swallow.
In fact, I'm sure its not for most people. That doesn't seem right to me. I think what I found most disturbing in this book weren't the things listed above but more the complete debasement of Franny. I didn't find any of these characters all that likeable but the treatment of Franny, her lack of an ability to defend herself, and later Noras actions and her emotional decline will stick with me for a long time.
I gave this book 4 stars insread of 5 because I still can't get over how slow it was at times. I know it was building an attachment and understanding of the sisters but at times it felt more like information dumping. I still loved it for the emotional turmoil it put me yhrough and for keeping me guessing. Would I recommend it? Not to anyone I had to look in the eye when they were done with it!

I'm Speechless!!! View all 3 comments. I'm still in completely shock. Still reeling from this brilliant story. I'm still back in the "training room" at Michael's house while it catches on fire! The feel of this almost feels as if it was based on a true story? I wonder if it was? I loved it! A couple moments made me cringe. But it was an interesting journey to get on. This by far is one of the darkest I've read! Definitely won't be for everyone.
But I couldn't put it down because the suspense of it is brilliant. I will start with Michael first…or "M" as he's called majority of the time. He had us all fooled! Because at first I suspect he's the bad guy. But then I didn't. I won't reveal what happens. But in the end, his true colors fully show. And everything comes full circle to show who he is. And he disgusted me. At the same time he fooled me a lot of the time, I began to even like him in some weird way, and began to think he had this cool, sophisticated, suave aura about him than began to draw me in.
Which he does have all that. But underneath it all is pure evilness. And then Nora. My heart went out to her majority of the time dealing with the aftermath of Franny. And i don't blame her. There was times I felt worried for her because she willingly put herself in harms way many times. Usually always involved Michael. I think she's been through so much and has learned a lot about life and about herself coming out of this.
Franny was pretty much the main common denominator in this whole thing. Everything was revolved around her. And the very beginning of the book is her POVs. I felt sorry for her. Franny is so pathetic in many ways but you feel sympathetic for her because she just wants love. She feels as if she has no one anymore. And she's gotten to the point where she'll do anything to feel love or feel that someone cares. Its sad really how low she stoops. And she has such low self esteem. It almost made me cringe at how desperate she comes across sometimes.
With Ian i liked him well enough most of the time.
I thought he was this sweet, normal, down to earth guy. And then I got my suspicions about him. Michael did a sneaky job of that. But in the end, I felt sorry for Ian is some way's too. His whole life got turned upside down and changed. He isn't completely innocent though and had a few of his own secrets. No one walks away from this unscathed.
Everyone pays some kind of price in the end. I do love how this book keeps you guessing all the way up till the very end! I only wish Michael would pay more of a price and there would be some more justice for him. But it is, what it is. The sex was hot!! Except the bizarre out there moments, the "bestiality" moments makes this certainly not for the faint of heart. Other than that, this book was brilliant! I'd give it 10 stars if I could. Well, you know when you read reviews and most of them are either 1 star or 5 star reviews then either someone's done something right or they've done something wrong really right Truth is, I love dark and I love effed up so this might just be my cuppa tea.

I really wanted to root for the sister who claimed she was trying to avenge her sis's death when law enforcement seemed to drop the ball I couldn't get how she participated in everything sister did reluctantly. Dec 19, Jettie Woodruff rated it really liked it Shelves: I don't know what to say. I am never at a loss for words. It's not in me, buuuuut I am at a loss for a lot of words. I can't give this book a 5 because some parts were down right disgusting.
But, I have to give it to the author for not giving a shit and doing it. This book as absolutely NO boundaries at all. I have never in my life read anything like this.Then I would suggest you do read it and come tell me what you thought about it.
And the apparent illusion of non-consent is what makes the thrill so great for both parties. I've mentioned this before. Is this consent? Not into cookies?
