Challenged by Jaden Wilkes to read Dark books, I (Nikki) am on a quest to see what Dark books I can read and what books Freak the S#!T out of me.
Here’s the initial challenge.
Oct 13, 2014
Author: Jaden Wilkes
Genre: Dark, Erotica
Reviewer: Nikki “I’m not a P**sy” K
Stars (O’s): OOOOo
*Let me preface this review by saying I was challenged by Jaden Wilkes to read this book and provided a free copy by her.*
Alexandre, on the surface seems the perfect catch. He’s handsome, well bred, well educated and well….wealthy. Lest we forget, every beautiful cover has a story between the pages.
At the onset, my first thought was “what a dick”. Here’s this doctor who’s got it all and yet he’s using his position to coerce woman into rough play. After the first few chapters I began to feel sorry for this man. We find him lacking in real emotions, and the ability to feel.
Enter Mistress, she appears from a cloud of smoke, at the end of perfection tly manicured red talons. Mistress will save us from this despicable doctor. She is aware of his sorted methods and calls him out, telling him to quit his evil ways or punishment will ensue. Alexandre, being the twisted f**k that he is, finds solace in her threats. He yearns for her judgements and aches for the pain to come.
Throughout the book I grew exceedingly empathetic towards Alexandre. As it becomes apparent that he is no longer in full command of his faculties. Yes, he is still a reprehensible douche, but when his vulnerability shows, the predator becomes the prey.
Overall this book is very well written and provides the reader with twists and turns to keep you on your feet. I’d say Jaden Wilkes did a fantastic job of reeling me in and hooking a new follower of the Dark!
Thank you Jaden for the challenge, I look forward to reading more of your words! Oh and I guess I’m not too afraid of the dark!

Nikki K’s 5 Star Review
Let me just start by saying WOW! This book definitely was a bit different for me. I don’t usually read dark but when I was offered to read this ARC I couldn’t say no and I am glad I did.
Demi and Pope’s “love story” is a rather unconventional story starting out on a dark path. They are brought together through a twisted set of circumstances and through their trials they grow together. Trials, ha! Yeah, that is putting it mildly. The things these two, mainly Demi, endure made me wanna cringe and I found myself saying WTF more than once.
This is not your typical boy meets girl and they move to country and chase butterflies in the field love story, it is not for the faint of heart. That said, if you have a bit of a twisted mind or appreciate the twists and turns of a dark story, this is a must read. I truly enjoyed the unexpected nature of this book and all of the creepy and often hot and bothered feelings I felt while reading.
Ms. Hensley is a creatively twisted author and I for one am glad to have discovered her work. With one eye closed and clutching my blankey, I rate this book 5 stars and suggest you #oneclick for yourself and find out why.
