By: Bianca Sommerland

Warning

This book contains situations that some may find disturbing, including torture and rape which is part of the story and not intended for titillation. This book contains violence, sex, and blood, among other things. Reader discretion is advised.



Deadly Captive, Book 1

Lydia awakes, bound and blind, to the whispered urgings of a man who has his hands on her. His words confuse her at first, but she soon understands they are both in the middle of a performance that will determine whether she remains in captivity or dies.

The crowd must be entertained, and her cellmate makes sure it is.

Forced submission is not the only horror Lydia endures. She has no memories of life before her imprisonment, and Joe, her cellmate, is her only comfort as the powerful creatures that hold them captive torture and debase her. Together, she and Joe cling to the will to survive long enough to break free and seek revenge. Their desire to sustain one another triumphs over their wardens’ efforts to destroy them. There is no pain, no suffering, that can tear them apart.

Beyond their cell, their love is tested. Can they hold strong in the face of the challenge of the new powers they have gained along with their freedom?

Collateral Damage, Book 2

Stolen from a bright life full of colors, happiness, and youth, Nicole Reed is dragged into a pit of pain and depravity where all she can hope for is a quick end. But her captors don’t want to kill her. They want to use her to teach a little boy whom they plan to mold in their image.

She must free him before that happens. Only she can’t stand against those who hold him, not alone. Her only hope is Vince, one of her tormentors, who may still show a glimmer of humanity.

Or maybe that’s just a trick of the light.

Warning: BDSM, graphic violence, dubious consent, forced sex, forced M/M sex, less than willing participation in edge play, content that some readers will consider objectionable including hot sex with a drool-iciously evil man.



Review

I'm not quite sure how I feel about these books to be honest.  Now don't take that the wrong way, because they are not bad at all and the books are actually well written, it's just there not what I expected going in and I'm not sure if it's because I didn't read far enough into the blurbs or lack of mention of the paranormal factor....I don't know I'm just torn.


I'm not going to summarize too much but the books were graphic, mysterious, and intense and I did love that part. The blurb doesn't lie about the situations the characters are in....they were imprisoned and tortured but yet managed to stay strong and build a relationship even in this horrible situation. I was able to connect to the characters in the second book more than the first.


I think that Bianca has a lot of potential and I will read her future works. I do think the blurb of these books needs to be redone though, to include the paranoral factor. Overall rating for the two books would be 3 stars.

About the Author


Tell you about me? Hmm, well there’s not much to say. I love hockey and cars and my kids…not in that order of course! Lol! When I’m not writing—which isn’t often—I’m usually watching a game or a car show while working on promo. Going out with my kids is my only down time. I get to clear my head and forget everything.

As for when and why I first started writing, I guess I thought I’d get extra cookies if I was quiet for awhile—that’s how young I was. I used to bring my grandmother barely legible pages filled with tales of evil unicorns. She told me then that I would be a famous author.

I hope one day to prove her right.

  4. No I don't think I could, but without being in the situation, it's hard to say what I could do!
