Sometimes when you can't go back, the only way out is to descend into the darkness.
When I woke in that place, I just wanted to survive. But survival came at a cost; they demanded my will and body.
With pain came acceptance. Fully dependent on the man who claimed me, I learned to appreciate what I had - life and relative safety.
I watched him spill blood and tend my injuries. With betrayal came a revelation.
Irrevocable is a dark romance intended for adult readers 18+ only. Not intended for those easily offended by dark subject matter.

I'm not sure most of my friends would be able to get past the sexual brutality, forced slavery, and human trafficking which is a good portion of the book. There is a sweet romance that develops in the midst of it all that makes it well worth getting beyond the initial brutality.
I found myself wondering how I would react to a similar situation as the main character. I'm hoping I would be up to the challenge but I am in no way interested in finding out for sure! There were some parts of the book that I would have liked to explore more, like how she and her friend managed to become drugged while out at a restaurant and only one of them taken into slavery. Did someone set her up? I think there was a hidden camera in the apt the main character lived in with her master (Gabe said she was sleeping in her masters bed each night but he couldn't know that unless there was a hidden camera) but that was never explored. I also think the main character spent too much time drugged (not by her own choice) and found that it was often hard to keep up with what was going on while she was slipping in and out of coherency.
I haven't listened to any of her previous work but felt she did a great job with this book. I could listen to her for hours (and I did!). She does well with different voices, particularly men's voices which I think can be a challenge for many.
Yes, I wanted to find out what was happening next.
I think the door could be open for a sequel. Can James catch the person who drugged Rose and bring down a human trafficking ring?
I could not put this one down. I advise heeding the authors warning.There are parts of this book that made me want to vomit, commit murder, and cry! Sierra Kline nailed all the characters and really made the listen gripping and enjoyable. Hats off to the author for an amazing look into the Human spirit. UNBELIEVEABLE
Cartel, Kingpin. because they tell of finding love in the most darkest places and the will of human spirit!!!
can't say without giving away too much.....
Gripping and intense
This book must be read start to finish to really appreciate it!!
I just have to roll my eyes and say 'really' when someone writes in a review that the book was not 'realistic'...come on now 'really'!
Not a romance. Not for the faint of heart.
A group of sex traffickers abduct Rose. There hasn't been a 'fresh' abductee in awhile and they wanted to have some fun. Back at the facility Kirk, who is in charge of information and security, catches the scum with her. Kirk takes Rose/Silver from the scum and makes her his own slave.
There are some brutal scenes that made me cringe and nauseous. There's mystery, suspense, OMG's and where is Kirk?
Sierra Kline gives a capturing performance.
Absolutely worth a credit if you like this type of book.
This book was just so terrible for my taste. The opening rape scene was the first sign for me that this book wasn't what would keep my attention. Not my style and the narration was off as well.
I don’t think I’d be able to handle another book like this, it wasn’t really my style but I would probably give it a shot if it explained how she ended up there and if the entire trafficking ring gets brought down, for that I’d check it out.
I’ll be honest, it was hard for me to get past the sexual brutality and human trafficking, which is essentially the bulk of this novel. I want to know who drugged Silver/Rose and possibly her friend, who set her up?
My mind leapt to her boyfriend, the guy she wouldn’t let move in with her.There were a lot of plot twists, and I can understand Silver fighting and rebelling, I don’t think I’d be able to survive that environment.
I thought that the snake dreams/tattoos were a smart idea, especially when Silver realizes that the snake is her protector.
Hello I am addicted to Audible!!! The addiction is real and I need help...more credits that is.....
I promise you I am addicted to Romance and Erotica audiobooks so right now in 2016 this is one of my favorites so far. This book was given to me for free for my honest opinions and all I can say is honestly I loved it. I have a pretty wicked mind and could really enjoy where the author was going with the book but oh man the Narrator made the words perform visual pictures that kept me up all night until the book was over.
Well the mole of course, he was the villain but really the hero. LOVED him.
Spoiler Alert or maybe not, my favorite scene is when the snake uncoils and attacks him right in the neck. Then she realizes that the snake is her protector,oh but she knew this already!! I am telling you the book had so many different elements that it was more than just the sex or hotness it was really the development of the relationships between the characters but also the internal strength and growth.
I think I was moved when the story was James shot him, at that point I knew they both were good guys, one by choice and the other by circumstances. This book wasn't supposed to be deep but it was on so many levels.
Try this book, it will blow your expectations out of the water.
Love books. Can get lost in them and spend hours there.
Good book but a little dark for my taste. This book has the romance. It has the bad guys and the hero.
This book is very detailed so it's not for the lite hearted person. I feel you must be into dark stories to enjoy the book.

Yes! I would totally listen again. The story, narrator, and characters kept me not wanting to push pause!
My favorite character was James/Kirk. He was very lovable from the start. They way he protected Silver/Rose and always kept his cool was very alluring.
My favorite scene was when they took their picnic on the grounds. It was genuine while they were talking and the sex sounded fantastic!
Very much so. I found myself creating reasons to Listen! Sierra Kline has become one of my favorite narrators!!!

This book opens with a very graphic rape scene and things go progressively downhill for our main character from there. As many reviewers have pointed out, it is a dark listen. It could have been soooo much worse though.
The story resolves itself quite well and the narrator did a great job keeping the listen interesting. If I have any fault with this book, it's with the non-existence of Silver/Rose's Mom. I can't believe that a mother would not be at her daughter's side after such an ordeal. That bugged me for awhile. Still, if you can handle the very graphic subject matter, there is enough 'Oh, wow!' moments to make this listen worth it.
Wow...when they say this book is dark, they aren't kidding. If you are upset by dark or graphic content, maybe think about skipping this one.
If you're able to look past the darkness, it's a fairly compelling plot. The premise is a little cliche, but the stakes are so high that you do wonder how on earth the characters are going to get out of it. There are moments that seem a little far-fetched and but things are well written and move quickly to immerse you into the seedy underbelly of this dark world. Things occasionally border on gratuitous, but I guess you can't say they didn't warn you.
Sierra Kline does a great job with some really tough material. The text of the book made me uncomfortable at times, and she tackles it admirably, navigating both the rough moments and the touching ones appropriately. She guides the listener through the *very* rocky road of Silver's experience. Thank goodness, because I don't think this is a road I'd want to be on by myself.
"Love this story, but..."
I absolutely love this book, I've lost count on how many times I have read it, so I was so excited when I found it on Audible. But the narrators voice is all wrong and doesn't suit the character of Silver/Rose at all, so disappointing for me it ruined the whole story.. So I think I'll stick to the book on this one, but would love to see Bend don't break (Kirk/James' p.o.v) available in audiobook format..
