Acquired Possession by Cari Silverwood
The Machinery of Desire Book 1
The night Emery is taken she is reading emails in bed.
Aerthe, another world, the world of the Swathe, the moving cities of the Mekkers.
Blind on arrival and naked. No one touches her until the Mekkers decide humans aren’t people, and therefore can be bought and traded. The journey through the portal alters humans, shines them all pretty. Humans glimmer.
Emery’s bright hair and nails will forever mark her as alien. Her freedom is gone. Though her sight returns, she becomes a possession of House Oren.
But someone else wants to own her. The House Master, Mako, a man who uses whips and canes like most people use a knife – daily, with efficiency and casualness.
She vows to never give in.
Banned from marrying. Banned from having playing too intimately with the house possessions, Mako holds himself back.
He mustn’t. Shouldn’t. His job is to punish, to control, to keep the House in order.
But when Emery runs and takes with her a most dangerous war machine, one not seen since the Last Days of the War… Mako is the man they turn to.
To chase her down. To bring her back, lamed, dead, or mostly alive.
“Acquired Possession is like a sexy sneak attack. It rips you out of reality and into a decadently described world. First it makes you angry, then it makes you beg for more, and then it delivers with Cari’s powerful eroticism and a completely unexpected love story! Can’t wait for this series to continue!” ~ Jennifer Bene, author of the bestselling Thalia series.
Warning: This is a dark erotic story. If you don’t understand where dark stories can go, this might not be for you.
Contains BDSM themes.

This book is Super Hot but, remember this is Cari Silverwood so heed the warning if you don’t like anything in the warning don’t buy this book.
I loved Acquired Possession and I can’t wait to read Claimed Possession. It looks like book 2 in the Machinery of Desire series is up for pre-order and should be out Oct. 11, 2017. Book 2 will be Sawyer & Aribelle’s story. Sawyer was mentioned in Acquired Possession.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. But, I will be purchasing this book as well. I give Acquired Possession 4.5 stars.
