New Adult Dark Erotic Novel
Kidnapped. Taken to a private island.
I never thought this could happen to me. I never imagined one chance meeting on the eve of my eighteenth birthday could change my life so completely.
Now I belong to him. To Julian. To a man who is as ruthless as he is beautiful—a man whose touch makes me burn. A man whose tenderness I find more devastating than his cruelty.
My captor is an enigma. I don’t know who he is or why he took me. There is a darkness inside him—a darkness that scares me even as it draws me in.
My name is Nora Leston, and this is my story.

I like sexy erotica with a good storyline. Fantasy or sci-fi or just something that captures my attention right away.
I LOVE THIS AUTHOR'S BOOKS BUT GIVEN THE WARNINGS I WAS EXPECTING SOMETHING MUCH DARKER. I LIKE DARK SO I WAS ANTICIPATING THE RELEASE OF THIS BOOK AND I WAS EXPECTING SOMETHING THAT SURPASSED THE "CJ ROBERTS" CATEGORY OF "DARK" BUT IT FELL A LITTLE SHORT. IT WAS STILL A GREAT STORY AS WITH ALL OF HER BOOKS. HER STORIES ARE ALWAYS INTERESTING AND GO BEYOND THE NORM. THEY ALWAYS CAPTURE YOUR ATTENTION RIGHT AWAY AND HAVE SEXY DETAILED LOVE SCENES THAT THAT MAKE YOU PANT! I BUY HER BOOKS AS SOON AS THEY ARE RELEASED AND ALWAYS WITH ANTICIPATION OF WHERE HER IMAGINATION IS GOING TO TAKE ME!
I love to read and listen to erotica all types and paranormal vamps and shifters
This was my first time reading this author. This story was pretty good it reminded me of a few other series that I loved only this one a little something extra my only dislike was Nora was always in her head about what she shouldn't like and so forth. Nora is an 18 year old virgin who finds herself abducted and taken to an island by a mysterious stranger. The man who has taken her is captivating he is beyond handsome, wealthy, worldly, confident, dangerous, and controlling. Julian who is an arms dealer was dark and dangerous. Julian meets Nora in a bar and she reminds him of a childhood friend he becomes obsessed with Nora and he had to have her. Nora is not a weak character. She has some fight in her a fight to be free a fight to go home. Julian uses his seduction and his dark erotic ways to make Nora love him and to be the masochists to his sadists ways and she loved all of it. The sex scenes were hot. I loved how she learned to be patient and start thinking of ways to pass time and how she learned to be friends with Beth. I am most certainly looking forward to the next installment. I was happy that it didn't stick me with a cliffhanger but it definitely left me knowing there is more to come.
I really enjoyed it this book and I can't wait to read the next book.
" You Are Mine Nora"
I am a lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
I can't explain why I decided to read/listen to this book. I'm not at all into kidnapping books and I felt sick at the idea of romanticizing the awful tragedy of being taken against your will. So let me tell you---this book was an experience for me!!! It's one in which you hate to admit you liked it. In fact, it was intriguing to me. This book is very well written, and the emotional conflict of the heroine, Nora is portrayed very well. And, how can Nora not be conflicted as she is taken away from all she knew and whisked off to a tropical island where she was subjected to a sexual world she never volunteered for? Her captor, Julian remains somewhat of a mystery, even though he does share some aspects of his life. I would assume we will learn more about Julian in Book 2. Nora describes Julian as a dark angel with great wealth and who she is drawn to (since she first met him), but she knows he's dark and can't help but get sucked into his black hole. Just as reviewers on goodreads and other sites have indicated this book is very similar to the concepts of 50 Shades of Grey. Yet, there's no doubt Nora was held captive, but what she never expected was to fall, irrevocably, in love with her captor Julian. Julian has a complicated and traumatic background and he has decided against going the traditional route in wooing Nora and has decided almost like caveman-style on steroids to take her and make her his. This is also irrevocable. This book is dark, it's painful, erotic and definitely well-written. AZ has created two characters who become inseparable and there's no going back. I can't romanticize this aspect, it is what it is.
Narrator: I thought the narrator was excellent. Shirl Rae performed very well.
I'm partial to erotica, especially if it's got a good BDSM spin to it. But, if the blurb gets me, I'll listen!
I read books all the time. I love to listen to books while I'm doing chores and driving back and forth to work. There's something about listening to books that helps transport me into the lives of the characters. I can't say one is better than is the other, I enjoy both too much.
Both Julian and Nora. You can feel the chemistry between them from the beginning. I both hated and loved Julian. Nora tried so hard not to fall into his "trap". She was brave, but her falling for Julian was inevitable.
I have listened to many books with some pretty bad narration. I really like the way she read the characters. She was good at changing her voice for all the different characters.
I loved it all, but the ending was really great. I won't give anything away!
I really liked this one. It was dark but not too dark. I deducted a star because the heroine was rather annoying most of the time. Can't wait till book 2 is released.
Lover of all books, especially Romance!
This book is dark and twisted but is awesomely dark. I am not really a dark type reader but this book was interesting and kept my attention throughout. If you are a dark type reader or thinking on trying a dark type book, try this one. It is excellent. Not a 5 because, well for the same reasons I like it I also can't get past it. Gosh, this book has me twisted, LOL.
Wasn't sure I would like this but it was very compelling. The author writes very well and the reader was perfect at making the characters believable. The story is a bit disturbing but I can't stop thinking about these characters. The ending was very unexpected and quite believable.
Twist me was different from the outset, keeping me enthralled the entire way through.
No other book has had such an intriguing yet almost disturbing storyline.
The only negative is the reader's voice for Julian.
Don't get me wrong - I won't judge anyone who enjoyed this book. Everyone has their own kinks! But something about the way this was written reminded me wayyy too much of real life kidnappings with sexual abuse.
First of all - the sex happened instantly, which is a big turn-off for me as an erotic/romance fan. Like whoa...I didn't even get to feel anything for the characters yet! I just didn't care what happened in the end and found myself being extremely turned off - so I had to quit it.
However, this author's other book 'The Krinar Chronicles' I enjoyed thoroughly. So eh, not sure why this one wasn't my cup of tea.
