Review: Hear Me by Skye Warren

Author: Skye Warren
Genre: BDSM Erotica
Publisher: Self Published
Length: 96 Pages
Purchase: Amazon and NOOK

Rating: 5 of 5 Kisses!


She doesn’t remember her past, only her training. She can’t talk, not that a good slave should speak out of turn. None of that matters when she wakes up in the warm, rustic room. Her new master is distant but kind. There’s only one problem: he doesn’t want her.

Longing for the shackles of safety, she pulls from the last dregs of her will to prove her worth as a slave. It seems to be working. He responds first to her body and next to her submission. The secrets of his past haunt the cabin, fraying the tightening bond between Master and slave, but it is her own memories that may finally unravel it.

This book contains a bonus short story Escape, set in the same dark erotica world.

This book contains explicit scenes of sex, including dubious consent and captivity situations. The BDSM does not conform to literary conventions, making it sometimes more realistic, and other times not. This is a work of fiction not appropriate for anyone uncomfortable with these situations or anyone under the age of eighteen.

Kitten's Review:

Skye Warren is my new go to girl for Dark Erotica.

At this point, I have a few. But this story moved me, pushed me, and made me want more. I think there is something disturbing about the fact I found this book ridiculously romantic. Then again, I also found the last chapter of Anne Rice’s Sleeping Beauty Erotica series. This story was no different for me, and it was 200 pages less than that. Perhaps that type of situation moves me. My husband thinks I have a romantic idea of the subby being saved from the bad Dom, by the good Dom, yet he is still brutal and unyielding.

This story sucked me in from the moment I opened it up. I had a hard time stopping and even got grumpy every time someone tried to interrupt me. Skye is a writer. A real writer, that can weave a story with such intensity that you are thinking about months from now and find yourself going, “What ever happened with Melody and Sam?” You care, you connect, and you want to know more.

Just like Sam says, her submission was beautiful. This story was beautiful. It was dark, wicked, and sexy as all hell. I’m a woman with a desire for the dubious consent situation. And just when I thought I had it all figured out, Skye hit me with a sledge hammer and I was going, “What the--!”

I highly recommend this story to all lovers of dark, twisted, well written stories! This goes in my reread collection! I would just like to note that this is the second story I have read by Skye. I read her freebie retelling of Beauty and the Beast and loved it! I have her other books, all of them actually, and will be reading them asap.
