Synopsis from Goodreads: (Dark Romance, F/M and M/M scenes, Rock Star Romance, Ménage, Sexy Detective, Alpha Male, Supernatural themes)
“Losing her mind wasn’t an experience she enjoyed.”
After a steamy night of passion with a dark stranger, Arbor’s life takes on a surreal edge. Disturbing dreams, lapses in memory, and entire buildings going missing are only a few of her problems. Her search for answers leads her to Detective Trey Murphy, the man in charge of investigating satanic and ritualistic crime for the New Orleans area.
Where do you turn when your mind is the enemy?
Meeting Trey only adds to Arbor’s confusion. By day, he keeps her captivated and gains her trust in a way no one else ever has. At night, Arbor’s every fantasy is brought to life by two sexy men who steal away her inhibitions. Torn between what her heart knows is real and what her eyes show her, Arbor must find the truth before she loses herself completely.
But, then again, sometimes reality is more twisted than any dream and love is the cruelest form of insanity.
Warning: This isn’t your typical love story. It’s dark with scenes some may find disturbing. Sometimes love is senseless, and the heart is so very stupid.
I want to start this out by saying that I’ve read erotica before – we’ve probably all read a book or story that qualifies as erotica or damn near qualifies as it before. That being said – I’m still trying to process exactly what it is I just read.
I tried to like Sated, I did. But I have to be completely honest – I couldn’t even follow the story. Half the time instead of aroused, I was just plain confused. Aside the fact that like I said, this isn’t my first rodeo, and yet the sex scenes were completely unbelievable in my opinion. I just couldn’t get into them at all.
Erotica stories are meant to be arousing, not confusing. I think the story would have benefited from a much clearer, more concise, and much easier to follow story line than the book has. The book wasn’t even that well written – it read like a lot of the fan fiction stories that are my guilty pleasure. But fan fiction writers aren’t writing this for a living, so I can excuse it from them. This book gets 1 star from me because it just wasn’t even a decent book. Definitely would not recommend.
I received a copy of this book free from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
