I watched her.
I knew I shouldn’t. It was a mistake. Wrong. Forbidden.
A glimpse of heaven before a depraved angel led me to hell.
One email was all it would take to end the torture. A simple email, dropping Eden Wilder from my class and my life.
But I couldn’t do it. I was selfish—taking any bit of her I could.
That’s how addictions start. You give in just a little. Just once. Before long, your obsession has grown into a violent storm, shrouding you in darkness as it consumes your thoughts. Consumes your whole damn life. And everything you’ve worked for is gone.
But you honestly don’t give a f*ck. You’d serve your soul up on a silver platter for your addiction.
And she was mine.
Warning: Recommended for readers 18+ due to strong adult language, themes, and a stalkerific hero who puts the FUN in dysfunctional. Enjoy!
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Holy flaming shirtballs, people! If you’re into professor-student romances with a side of hot and kinky, boy do I have a recommendation for you!
Give In was definitely a different type of story from Ms. Frost, but in no way was it any less awesome than her previous work. Easy to read, well-paced and scorching hot, it was delightfully naughty.
Eden is doing whatever she has to do to survive. Keeping good grades at school and working nights while being on your own is not conducive to a restful life with lots of friends and normal college kid experiences. Especially with the line of work she’s been forced to pursue.
Damien loves what he does, he is a great teacher and he’s never doubted his career choice. Until one girl steps into his class and flips his world upside down. Knowing that acting on his attraction could bring all kinds of problems for Eden, he forces himself to stay away and be content with watching her from a distance. Luckily for us, this self-imposed rule does not prosper and soon they are playing a game of back and forth neither of them can control.
Damien is one crazy controlling, bossy kinky SOB. Hot and sexy, he knew exactly what he wanted and what he’d liked to do to Eden. He was manipulative and cunning, and at one point I was wondering if he was bipolar or suffered from a multiple personalities disorder… he could give Katy Perry’s song Hot and Cold a run for its money, let me tell you. Under all his coocoo-ness, he could be sweet, caring and loving and I absolutely loved him, kinky depravedness and all. Or possibly because of it… he was just so, soooooooo good at what he did… *fanning self*
“This is just the beginning. You gave me you and there’s no going back.”
Eden was one strong young woman. With secrets and a past she desperately wanted to keep in her rearview mirror, she gave everything she had and then some to achieve her goals no matter what she had to do to make it happen. She was smart, sassy and even though she could stick her head in the sand like a pro, she was also a fighter, and I really liked her.
Eden and Damien’s chemistry was off the charts hot, and though their beginning is more than bumpy, I really loved them together. That’s not to say the back and forth didn’t drive me batty. I heard this story described as a slow burn. Well, let me tell you, slow burn, my ass! (which is actually the accurate phrase to describe it) this is one mother effing long tease in book form. Get ready to want to tear your hair out in despair and desperation while these two dance around each other.
“We were the kinky version of Newton’s third law, our fucked-up connection pushing and pulling with each action and reaction.”
Give In is one hot, kinky, mildly angsty read I totally enjoyed. There’s some intrigue, inappropriate thoughts galore and combustible sexnanigans. If you’re in the mood for some tabooish romance to feed your pervy side, this is the way to go
