Set Me Free is a dark romance
I do not advise anyone who is sensitive to certain subjects or sexual situations to read it as it does contain certain situations.Set Me Free

(Subject to Change)I know I shouldn’t feel this comfortable in a stranger’s arms, but for some reason, I can’t help it. He looks at me like I hold the light to his darkness, like I’m a treasure.
Lying my head back down on the pillow, we continue to stare at each other, his hands running up and down my back in soothing motions. I’m not sure how long we stayed like that before he finally spoke, his voice breaking the silence for the first time.
“What’s your name?” he asks, his voice soft, barely above a whisper
“Emmalyn.” The way he whispers my name sends shivers across my body
“What’s your name?” I ask, my voice small and shy
Silence follows as we lie there. I think he has fallen asleep when his hand caresses my face. Opening his mouth, Kodah says the very thing to give me hope, to give me a fighting chance, and steals my heart while sealing our fate. “I’m going to get us out of here, Emmy, and when I do, I’m going to keep you.”
Set Me Free (Free, #1) by M.R. Leahy. This is a story like anything I have read in quite a while. Emmalyn was a happy little girl living with her father and extended family than next thing she knows her estranged mother shows up. She tells Emmalyn that her father doesn’t want her anymore and she is going to be living with her. Emmalyn finds herself living in a compound were her stepfather is the head of a sex slave child human trafficking ring. Emmalyn is his newest acquisition. For the last six years she has been groomed as the ultimate sex slave. Now 16 she is to be sold to the highest bidder. She will bring a nice price considering she is a beauty beyond any one has ever seen and she is a virgin to boot. A gritty story of a girl who has had to endure submissive training for years and if it had not been for her roommate Kodah she might not have survived. A really good story with an ending that will blow your mind. I could not get enough of this story and I hope there will be many more stories to come from this author regarding the characters in this book. Yes this a dark read and at times it may be a little tough to swallow considering the subject matter but I loved it never the less. A story that drew me in and did not let me go till the end. I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. 5 stars for me.
