Publisher's Summary

One obsessed fan. One captive author. Lost on the streets of a foreign city, Molly Clary is attacked after a book signing until an unknown hero steps in to protect her. But Molly’s relief soon turns to terror when her savior’s true intentions are revealed.

Connor Reilly doesn’t just want to save her, he wants to take her for himself.  

Now, Molly’s fighting not just for her life but for the essence of who she truly is. If she’s going to survive in Connor’s dark, new world, she’ll have to learn to play his base games. But if Molly plays, what will it cost her? Can a monster ever really learn to love, or will his need to dominate destroy them both?  

If you enjoyed the debauched desire of the Twist Me series, then you’ll devour Felicity Brandon’s edgy new trilogy. Buy Taken to begin this hauntingly addictive set. Taken is an edgy, fast-paced, dark romance and is the first book in The Dark Necessities trilogy. Molly and Connor’s story continues in Tamed and concludes in Entwined.

OMG!!! HOT, HOT, HOT

The tension, fear and anticipation of a bound and kidnapped woman, Molly, surges off the audio and grabbed this listener within moments. It boggled my mind to read about an author who writes erotic fantasies becoming the main character in her next book, orchestrated by her kidnapper. Conner is totally in control, and their interactions are filthy, depraved, demeaning, degrading, humiliating, indecent and at the same time exciting and salacious!
OMG! How can a book containing only simple words elicit such fierce emotions within my entire being? This story brought out feelings of trepidation, fear, anticipation, shock, excitement and a whole lot more, which will remain unnamed.
In my opinion this story is filled with issues of non-consent, dubious consent, and freedom through submission, even if the submission was initially coerced. If you have any triggers, DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS AUDIO; if you do not, and you wish to enter upon the most erotic journey I could ever have imagined---LISTEN !

Dark and twisted

Connor is a man with a plan and an obsession to feed! This Connor is calculating. cruel, and depraved, but he's only playing out Molly's scenes with her so...? I read the second book first, so I know Connor has a heart and a soft spot and can be totally loveable, and I liked that Connor better. This Connor is beyond depraved, but they seem to be kindred spirits. Looking forward to the ending. I voluntarily listened to this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job.

dark, Dark, DARK

If you enjoy something on the darker side, this is for you. Kidnapping, humiliation, etc. If these make you cringe, then do not buy the book. Be forewarned, there are triggers in this book, but it is also making you wonder at the human psyche... how would you react in these circumstances?

Captivating!

This book is dark and definitely not for everyone but it had me on the edge of my seat from the beginning all the way until the cliffhanger at the end. I can't wait to continue on with this trilogy in Tamed. Peter Kenyon did a great job bringing this story to life. I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

AMAZING

I adore Felicity Brandon's writing style but hearing her words with this narrator took her story to an entirely new level. Incredibly immersive and NSFW- would definitely recommend!!!

So Dark

the narrator's performance is outstanding his voice is so creepy when its required and you feel the danger just from listening to him.

one moment that stood out fir md was when he said "Miss Clary", in my mind i just pictured Hannibal " Miss Claris" scene.

its very dark storyline

Not my thing

I like dark romance, however this just wasn't for me yet at the same time I was compelled to continue listening to the book.
It didn't have much storyline beyond the kidnapping of a author and what occurs afterwards in lots of scenes which I didn't find erotic or romantic. The scenes content were not to my taste either.
I didn't really like the narration either, the British accent was poor and seemed to change at times. I'd read some bits of the book and the narrator just didn't come across how I'd envisioned it in the book.
That said I have the trilogy so I am interested to see where it goes.

Not quite what I was expecting

This turned out to be much more twisted than I expected and I decided to give up without reaching the end. I just wasn't enjoying how things were developing and it wasn't turning into a good listen in my car.

The narrator is very good and was very easy to listen to. Good variations in the voices too.

I might try again another time but I'm not sure if I will change my mind.

Great story

I really enjoyed this book, it is not your typical girl meets boy which adds some suspense to the story as well as some steamy sex. highly recommended
