Review: Aaron works for an escort service providing sex to the highest bidders. He has fallen for one of his clients, but knows there is no future for them. When Aaron is sent to a new client it looks like it might be an enjoyable night, but Vincent has plans for Aaron that turns Aaron’s world into a nightmare.
This is a great story if you are looking for a dark erotica of torment with hidden hope. Aaron is callously taken from his world and shut into a nightmare, beaten and raped to break him down and turn him into a perfect slave. Vincent is a man who only cares about the money. Aaron is just another body, who will turn him a profit. But, first, he has to break him. Aaron has a secret hope though and clings to it during his darkest hours. Vincent begins to fall under Aaron’s spell, even as he tries to break Aaron down.
This story is not for the faint of heart. It is brutal, descriptive, bloody, and nasty. There is a light at the end of the tunnel though. But, that tunnel is long and the light keeps flickering, but it give us, the reader, and hope. Aaron finds himself a prisoner due to his callous bosses. Now he is in the hands of sadist and all Aaron has to cling to is the love he felt for one of his clients. You can’t help but have hope that Aaron will find a way out. But it isn’t a strong hope as you see everything that Aaron goes through. There are no feelings other than loathing for Vincent. There are no redeeming qualities about him, even as he seems to soften towards Aaron. The sexual aspects to this story are all non-con. There is one scene where it isn’t as harsh, but only because Aaron loses himself in fantasy. While Aaron suffers through his nightmare existence, the client he fell for is going through his own crisis and is searching for Aaron. That is something that gives us hope. Especially, when he discovers some of what has happened.
This isn’t a story to read if you like light and fluffy, happily ever after or consensual sex. It’s the story to read if you want harsh and brutal. If you want to see someone being broken or if you want to hold tight to the hope that rescue will eventually come.
