Wild Aces by Marni Mann: My Review

 

My Rating: 5 Stars

“He was masks and mystery and willing to take a risk with someone he didn’t even know. He was dark nights of phone sex and gambling, a gravelly voice that could make me wet from afar.”

Every so often, an author comes along that has a profound effect on on me as a reader. When I picked up Seductive Shadows  on a whim a few years ago, it was just another book that I was reading for a book tour. I pick books to review on instinct; I generally know what I like and what I enjoy reading and I choose accordingly. I was only a few pages in to Shadows when I realized this book was something truly special. To this day, Marni’s Shadows Series and her Bar Harbor Series remain at the top of my all time favorite reads and each of those books touched me deeply.

That being said, Wild Aces had A LOT to live up to. Thankfully, it did not disappoint. I may have had a slightly less intense personal connection to this story in particular, but in many ways that actually made the reading experience more enjoyable. Though I know each time I pick up one of Marni’s books I’m going to love it, the stories tend to connect to my own life and experiences, and visiting my own past is not always pleasant. This time around, however, I was able to be transported to someone else’s world for a few hours, and be consumed by Trapper and Brea’s story rather than my own.

Trapper and Brea have some crazy intense chemistry. In the beginning, they meet for only a few minutes and sparks fly. Unexpectedly, their connection only strengthens when they are apart, even though they’ve never seen each other’s faces. There are some HOT sexting and phone sex scenes that build anticipation for their eventual meeting. So I’m all pumped up for this amazing “first” meeting (first time with no masks – they originally met at a masquerade party) and then there’s this earth shattering twist. Now there’s a mystery to solve and the twists and turns keep coming throughout the story.

Combine an unpredictable rollercoaster of a plot with Mann’s always captivating writing, lovable and relatable characters, hot sex scenes and palpable emotion, and the result is a fantastic read. In addition, there’s definitely an element of darkness as death and child abuse are explored in an honest and gritty fashion. As usual, Mann finds away to balance the darkness with light; she knows how to break my heart and somehow put the pieces back together on just a few hours.  As a whole, Wild Aces is a sexy, sensual, fearless, exciting, and multi-faceted read. Also, for those of you who don’t appreciate a cliffhanger, Wild Aces is a standalone.

*I received an advance copy of Wild Aces in exchange for an honest review.

 

About Wild Aces

 

Wild Aces

 

Trapper Montgomery

His darkness drew me in.
A mystery with a past I wanted to solve.
He was cold, like ice, but set me on fire.
A heat I hadn’t felt in ages.
But when I saw his face, I burned…
In mourning
Again.

Brea Bradley
She melted from my voice–shuddered from my touch.
But trembled from the memories
That my face brought back.
She wanted more…
Maybe even him.
I wasn’t the hand she counted on.
But I was what she was dealt…
A Wild Ace with no way to win.

About Pulled Within

 

Storms can’t last forever…can they?

For five long years, Rae Ryan has lived in a storm over which she has no control. Little by little, everything has been taken away from her—her job, her relationship, her best friend and her home. Plagued by nightmares and a terrible family secret, she carries her scars as much on the inside as she does on the outside.

Hart Booker, another disappointment from her past, returns to Bar Harbor and shelters her from the rain. He reminds Rae that forgiveness is possible, happiness can be found on the other side of darkness, and beauty rests beneath her scars. But a sinister figure lingering in the background seems determined to pull Rae back into a past she’s been trying to outrun. Can she survive the storm and become part of the light she so desperately desires? Or is she destined to remain
Pulled Within?

Recommended for mature audiences due to explicit language, sexual abuse, disturbing situations, and drug use.

 

 

My Review

 

My Rating: 5+ Stars

 

” ‘When you’re in my house, I only want you wearing my clothes.’

‘Even your boxers?’

‘If I tell you to, yes. Nothing of yours… Not even panties.’ He bent his head, running his nose across my shoulder and to the opening of the shirt. ‘I want my scent on you- always.’ “

Once again, Marni Mann has stunned me. Each time I read one of her books time stops and the world around me disappears and for those few hours I’m there with her characters, living their tragedies and triumphs and feeling deeply their loss, love, happiness and healing. There’s something intangible about the way Mann connects a reader to her characters. When I read their stories, I feel as if I’m reading my own, though obviously I’m not. Perhaps it’s the way she makes each character so human, so real, flawed, relatable and presented honestly, without judgement and with empathy. Reading  Pulled Within, I didn’t feel sorry for Rae when things seemed impossibly bleak or happy for her when moments of healing occurred, I simply felt what she felt, a true connection to the story and the character.

Rae’s story is difficult and tragic and Mann pulls no punches. Her portrait of abuse, trauma, and addiction is stark, gritty, and detailed; there is no sugar coating the truth of what occurs at the hands of an abuser or how bleak the lives are of those living with addiction. And yet in all this darkness, she weaves a story of hope, healing, and second chance love. The result is a perfectly balanced story that is at once tragic and uplifting and has a sexy, sensual edge.

I adored Rae and Hart together. When she’s at incredibly dark place, he comes in and rescues her. It’s not all white knight and now everything is perfect but he’s there for her, offering her safety, delicious sex, and ultimately himself. Their chemistry is scorching but the romance is a slow burn; Rae is slow to trust Hart with her secrets and her pain.

The story is not only about Rae and Hart, however. It’s also about the people that surround their lives, past and present, some good, some bad. It’s about family, blood and otherwise, finding home and the potential for happiness, and moving forward from a damaged past in to a hopefully brighter future. It has mystery and intrigue and bits and pieces of the full story are revealed slowly, keeping the reader glued to the pages.  Pulled Within is captivating, honest, sexy, dark, tragic, and ultimately hopeful. It’s everything I could have wanted and more, and I loved it.

“We were the calm after a beautiful storm that I never wanted to end.”

(Note: Pulled Within part of a series but can be read as a stand-alone, though I highly recommend reading Pulled Beneath as well, because it’s fantastic.)

*I received a complimentary copy of the book for the purpose of honest review.

About the Book

 

What happens when you uncover years of secrets and find out everything you thought to be true was a lie?

Drew Stevens finds her world turned upside down when her parents are brutally murdered. Soon after, she learns she inherited a property in Bar Harbor, Maine from recently deceased grandparents who she believed had died when she was a baby.

Drew travels north to settle her grandparents’ estate, but finds more questions than answers as the truth starts unraveling. What she didn’t expect to find was Saint, whose reputation was as tumultuous as his past. But the very thing that drew them together was the same thing that kept them emotionally caged.

With Saint’s scars so deep and Drew’s so fresh, can the pair heal from their painful wounds or will they be pulled beneath the darkness of their pasts?

 

My Review

 

My Rating: 5 Stars

“This was a blinding betrayal, this was years of lies, and questioning everything I believed to be true. This was a completely new reality.”

I loved this book! Marni Mann has a unique ability: each time I read one of her books she breaks my heart, and then heals it in a new, better way. Pulled Beneath is an emotional journey; offering heartbreak in its death, lies, and betrayal, and healing in self-discovery and new beginnings.

It’s a journey of single moments, simple snapshots of time filled with intense and palpable emotion that flow easily together in to a fantastic read. It’s beautifully written and fully engrossing. So much so, that even though the story is filled with  many mysteries and unanswered questions, I wasn’t necessarily eager to find the answers, simply because I did not want the story to end. But ultimately, the questions are answered in a surprising and satisfying way.

Drew is a character I couldn’t help but feel for, and though I personally relate little to her personal life experience, I felt extremely close to her as I went with her on this journey. I have never myself lost a parent, but we all understand loss, and the author allows the reader to feel so close to all of the characters. There’s an interesting and multi-layered cast, complete with a sexy, mysterious, rugged, tattooed and seriously swoon-worthy leading man. Saint and Drew’s encounters weave a delicious thread of sexual tension through the book.

A captivating story filled with emotion, heat, loss, family drama, secrets, and ultimately answers and the healing that comes with them, Pulled Beneath is a brilliant read. Pasts are revealed and futures are put in to motion. Lives end and love begins. It has a satisfying “happy-for-now” ending that promises much more to come, and I’m eager to spend more time in Bar Harbor.

” ‘I don’t know what’s going to happen. Whether you break my heart or I break yours, that’s not really something we can say right now. But I want to be with you. And you completely own my mind. I promise you, that’s the truth.”

Excerpt

 

A gust of cold air burst through my body, tightening every muscle and clenching my lungs. The feeling was always the same, and it only came when I thought of that place…when the memories were thicker than the lessons I had learned by leaving there.
I set both brushes in a jar of water and walked across the hall to the apartment. Then I moved through the kitchen, my hands yanking at my sweater, lifting it over my head and releasing it once I got to the entryway of the bedroom. I peeled off my black skinny jeans until I reached my knee-high boots and dropped both along with my pants in front of the bathroom sinks. My panties and bra fell before I stepped into the shower and turned on the water.
The wall of glass that separated the shower from the rest of the bathroom began to fog, and the marble under my feet turned warm. Windows spanned both sides, overlooking different sections of the Back Bay; below the ledges were niches that held our bottles of shampoo and body wash, and benches for us to sit on. The back wall was a mosaic, an abstract. Water shot out from every direction, spraying from all sides as well as the ceiling. There were even streams below that covered my feet.
My skin was sweating now. Drops of scalding water ran off my body. The places that were being hit directly by the jets had turned a bright red. But it couldn’t stop the chill that continued to spread beneath my flesh.

Six months had passed since I’d left the mansion. I didn’t think about it as much as I used to, but when something instigated those thoughts—something like the mirrored floor in the painting—I had a hard time calming them down again. I still wasn’t sure how I was supposed to process what I had done there, what I had allowed to happen and how much I had once enjoyed it. Part of me didn’t want to take it back; part of me could barely keep down the bile that threatened to rise when I remembered. But that time in my life had gotten me here. And I was here, unlike some of the girls I had shared that house with.
I moved closer to one of the shower heads and pressed my hands against the cold marble that tiled the wall, leaning into the stream of water. It massaged the top of my head.
Breathe.
The drops that filled my ears blocked any noise that was around me. I could taste the product that drizzled from my hair—the spray I had used to hold my curls and the oil that gave it shine. My eyes closed and I inhaled the steam, trying to find a place of relaxation.
A place where the images and the screams would quiet to a dull moan.
And just as I found it, just as my palms no longer kneaded against the stone and my back didn’t pump and arch to find that place of complete comfort, just as I had finally gotten used to the temperature of the water, his arms wrapped around my chest. His hands cupped each of my breasts, his thumbs grazing my nipples.
“Why didn’t you wake me?” he whispered into my neck. His lips followed his words to my skin, his tongue circling the spot just to the side of my throat. It didn’t matter how often he had roamed my body, or how many times, it still felt so new, so unexpected.
“You need your sleep…” I told him. As soon as he touched me, I completely lost my voice. All I had were my desires, and they consumed me.
“I need you more,” he breathed.

 

My Review

 

My Rating: 5+ Stars

“What if Cee was really the soul of me, and Charlie was just another mask I wore?”

This book is one that have been anxiously waiting to read from the moment I knew that it would exist; and I’m absolutely ecstatic to say that it did not disappoint. The reader gets to see in to Charlie’s soul as she struggles with her new life after the mansion. She no longer feels the weight of poverty and abuse and has an amazing man in her life: a man whose dark past and bright future rivals her own. The story is deliciously dark, gritty, and sexy; intense emotions, both ecstasy and despair, mesh perfectly with a suspenseful and engaging story. The plot itself, with its twists and surprises, is compelling enough. But, what makes this book truly special is the artistic style to Mann’s writing: scenes described with a sensual artistic quality using beautifully realized colors, textures, and details.

I was impressed by how much Charlie’s character has grown. She is stronger and braver, she still struggles, but is trying to come to terms with her demons, to find comfort, stability and love. But this story is not only about Charlie. It’s also about the people around her and the relationships she is forging. Now that she is not simply surviving, but actually living, she is connecting with people on more than just a sexual level. She is forced reconcile these new found connections with her past and her future, and moving forward will not be easy.

We are introduced to a whole new cast of well-realized secondary characters. I truly enjoyed getting to know new angels and enemies, and witnessing new stories of darkness and light, of tragedy and triumph. Especially Cameron; He is my perfect broken hero. Gorgeous and damaged and sexually insatiable, his connection with Charlie is undeniable and I loved seeing the evolution of their relationship, in spite of nearly insurmountable obstacles.

“I tilted my head, looking in to the crystal clarity that stared back at me. The only thing cold about him was the blue of his eyes. Everything about Cameron spoke of his warmth. ‘Do you think I’m crazy?’

‘No,’ I said as I shook my head. ‘I think you’re wonderful.’ “

I must admit, I am such an enormous fan of Seductive Shadows that it would be nearly impossible to top that book for me. I highly recommend reading it first; the background is necessary to fully enjoy this book (and it’s an AMAZING read!!). Seductive Secrecy is it’s own story, though. We have a new Charlie, with glimpses of Cee, but this Charlie is more accessible and I feel that this book has a more relatable quality. It is heartbreaking and intense, but the pinpoints of light are just a bit brighter in this installment. These books, with their perfect combination of romance, sex, suspense, devastating darkness, and brilliant hope have captured my heart and soul.

“Maybe I should stare at the sky more often. Maybe I should enjoy the night air instead of shielding myself from it. Rather than letting the the never-ending blackness overwhelm me, maybe I should appreciate it for what it is; a background for the brilliance of stars. After all, without darkness there can’t be light.”

Author Interview

1.     Seductive Secrecy is the sequel to Seductive Shadows, how does it differ from the first book? 

Seductive Secrecy really focuses on Charlie and Cameron’s relationship, if they’re able to move on and grow from everything that happened while they were together as well as what had occurred in their pasts. Of course, with the sequel comes a whole new set of problems and they either have to weave through them together or the issues will drive them apart.

2.     What character have readers asked you the most about? Which left an impression on them, and did it surprise you?

Cameron is the most asked about character: who inspired his looks, is he based on someone I know, will he receive his own story? I would also say he’s left the strongest impression on my readers. Cameron has haunted me for a while (he still does!), so I can’t say I’m surprised by their curiosity. I’m more intrigued by their questions, if anything.

3.     What is the best personality trait of your heroine, Charlie?  Worst personality trait?

Underneath Charlie’s mask, her scars, her erotic behavior, is a survivor. She truly has an instinctive will to survive regardless of what she’s faced with. Her worst personality trait is that she’s fearless.

 4.     Did you know how Seductive Secrecy was going to end, before you wrote it? It was quite the shocker! 

Ha! Thank you! 🙂 I knew the main events that were going to take place, but the details weren’t flushed out until I wrote the actual ending. Because the ending is so layered, those points were smoothed out even more during the editing process.

5.     Is there a message in the Shadows Series that you want readers to walk away with? If so, what is it?

It’s always darkest before the dawn.

6.     Will there be a third book? What can we expect in the next installment?

As of right now, there is no plan for a third book. I did write a short story in Cameron’s point-of-view that readers can receive by purchasing a copy of Seductive Secrecy before November 1st (details are here: http://marnismann.com/claim-your-electronic-copy-of-camerons-point-of-view/) My next release is tentatively scheduled for January and it’s a New Adult title.

7.     Do you have any advice to give to aspiring writers?

Write as much as you can. Every writer has his or her own unique voice and it’s impossible to find that voice unless you experiment. My other piece of advice is read everything you can get your hands on because behind every great writer is a great reader.

5 Star Book Review: SEDUCTIVE SHADOWS by Marni Mann

July 19, 2013 Book Review, Erotic Romance, Favorite Books, New Adult, New Release 2

Title: Seductive Shadows

Author: Marni Mann

Publisher: Booktrope

My Rating: 5 HUGE STARS

 

 

About the Book

Charlie is a passionate, sensually inspired art student, desperately seeking an escape from an abusive past that haunts her and a tragic accident that emptied her heart. Scarred and unable to love, her yearning for physical pleasure and contact leads her into a tantalizing, dangerous world of power and seduction. The anonymity of the deal offers security, the money provides financial freedom, and the madam’s authority is the mother figure she longs for.

But the thrill of the mansion and its arousing dominance quickly fades when she meets the renowned yet mysterious Cameron Hardy, whose intense, baby blue eyes send a nervous flutter through her core. He’s sexy, and not in a subtle way. Cameron stimulates her art, intellect and desires. Just as he begins to break through her emotional boundaries, Charlie discovers a devastating connection between her past and her scandalous work at the mansion, shattering everything she thought to be true.

Provocative, intoxicating and erotic, Seductive Shadows is the unforgettable tale of a young woman’s discovery as she learns to forgive, to love and be loved, and to find redemption amidst a memorable journey that will captivate your mind and stimulate your soul.

This book is for mature audiences. It contains explicit language and sexual content.

 

My Review

“It’s always darkest before the dawn.”

 Dark, gritty, subversive, intensely sexual, achingly beautiful, and utterly heartbreaking, Seductive Shadows is simply a stunning book. By far one of my favorite reads this year, this story will take your mind and heart on an emotional journey not soon to be forgotten.

From the first pages, I was absolutely captivated. Not only by Charlie’s story, but by the prose: sensual, and smooth, but raw, written with a poetic voice and the critical detail of an artist’s eye. The writing has texture, as if I could feel the words on my skin. The author has the ability to draw the reader in, make you feel as if you’re in this place in time that she has created; and be warned it is not always the most comfortable place. I could feel, smell, and taste everything as if I was there. I read breathlessly, letting the story control my emotions, and I was taken to the depths of darkness, the heights of sexual fulfillment, and times of guarded hope.

Charlie is an amazing character, so broken, yet showing amazing strength.  Her art is the only place she has a voice; her way to communicate her true self.  She uses sex and her lucrative job as a high-priced prostitute to fill the emptiness that years of abuse and tragedy have created:

 “But…

My nights at the mansion were a release. The lack of emotion, the all- consuming fucking, the domination, was what kept me moving. Sex held me at night, stopped my mind from dwelling, remembering, regretting. It was the only time I didn’t feel alone.”

 It’s the men in Charlie’s life outside of the mansion that slowly create a change in her perception of herself, and help her see that she could be more. There’s Professor Freeman who encourages her artistic talents, Dallas, the lover turned compassionate best-friend, and then there’s Cameron, the sexy artist with scars of his own, who eventually offers her a real chance at healing and redemption, and possibly love:

 “I hadn’t become immune to his talent or beauty, I was childishly mesmerized by his sexiness, that strong but soft intensity that he possessed. His words almost had a hidden meaning and they awakened the darkness that lived within me. His darkness was equally enchanting, and the pain that I knew was there but hadn’t yet been revealed.”

 This is not a conventional erotic romance, or even simply a tale of a broken woman healing and learning to love. It makes you feel, deeply and completely, and not always what you would have expected. The story is complicated, thoughtful, and multi-layered. Nothing is black and white. Just when you find a comfortable place, and think you have things figured out, everything is turned inside out and upside down.  I gave this book five brilliant, shining stars; I would give it more if I could.

 “ ‘It’s always darkest before the dawn. And now that you’ve found yours…’ “
