Fab start to the series #BookReview His Prize by Doris O'Connor #BDSM #DarkErotica @mamad8

It’s the choice of her life—submit or die.

When Susie Elliot stumbles into the middle of a clean-up, undertaken by none other than Ellis Reynolds, she expects her life to be over. No one disturbs this ruthlessly efficient killer and lives to tell the tale.

The man they call Ren has no time for tender feelings, but there is something about the curvaceous redhead that calls to him. Rather than killing her he claims her as his prize. One night should be more than enough time to get her out of his system. However, Susie’s submission means Ren has to confront emotions, completely alien to him. Killing is easy. This relationship thing is fraught with problems.

When his criminal activities catch up with him, loyalties are tested to the max, and Susie has another choice to make—walk away, or stay and accept the darkness within.

Be Warned: BDSM, anal sex, impact play

This is one book I've been waiting to read ever since I read excerpts on the authors blog before it was released. I bought a copy as soon as it came out and finally sat down to read it in bed this morning.

Ren. Ren. Ren. You haven't met a bad boy or should I say 'bad man' until you've met Ren. Here comes the warning. This book is about real bad men. Not the pretend ones you get in a some novels labelled 'bad boy romance.' These ones actually do bad things with no remorse. Trust me, you don't want to meet any of these men in a dark alley.

Unfortunately this is how Susie met Ren, in a very dark alley as he killed two men and incapacitated a woman. And because she'd seen too much  and also because his boss had to reward him for a job well done, Susie became Ren's prize.

Okay. There are some things he did to her that I just had to skip over because they left a bad taste in my mouth. I'm not a fan of humiliation in any form especially when it's not the person's kink. And of course when he pulled the stunt in the kitchen I wanted to shoot him in the balls.

So true. Ren is difficult to love. But that's his appeal. Because you know when he falls he's going to fall hard. And boy did he fall. Of course I didn't expect him to suddenly turn mushy and start buying her flowers or being romantic. Leopard just don't change their spots.

But he did one thing which made me fall in love with him in the end. They say if you love someone you have to set them free. Well, that was enough proof to me that he loved Susie. And in that moment I fell in love with him.

Admittedly, this book is not for everyone. If you want heroes who 'reform' because the person they love 'saves' or makes them change, this not the book. There is no reformation. These are anti-heroes. Seriously. If you don't have the stomach for it, save yourself. Walk on by.

On the other hand, if you enjoy taking a walk on the dark side with a good dose of kink, then this is exactly for you. The erotic scenes will have you reaching for a fan and the suspense will keep you biting your nails. And the ending will have you sighing with pleasure.

I, for one, cannot wait for the next book. Please tell me it's Ty's story. Fab start to the series.
