by Elena M. Reyes & N. Isabelle Blanco
Voyeur #1
Genre: Dark Erotic Romance
Release Date: May 24th, 2017


I was drugged.
Now, I've woken up in a dark, luscious room.
A deviant playground.
I'm not alone.
The person that was drugged and taken with me is here, too.
My confidant.
Someone that I had come to see as a brother.
My best friend.
Suddenly, there's a voice coming through the speakers, telling us we've both been chosen to die.
The only way out? Do everything we're told to do.
This person wants to watch us. They want to be entertained. As she says, "I want to see you come."
It's simple: either we f*ck, or die.

Sweat beads at my brow as the breath whooshes out of me. I’m bent over, arms dangling down. Beneath me, the most delicious, hardest length I’ve ever felt presses into my mound. I want to rock against it.
I can’t move.
He won’t let me.
He keeps me like this, draped over his lap, immobile.
The sound of a strike reverberates throughout the room, but silence remains. No noise. It isn’t allowed.
Moisture drips from my every pore, and yet, I’m focused on this one drop as it gathers at the center of my forehead. Becomes bigger.
Everything’s out of control.
Hyper-awareness consumes my every breath.
I count to ten and it falls to the ground.
A small splat no one will ever hear. And yet, I do. The sound as it hits the floor causes my breathing to stutter and skin to prickle with goose bumps.
“The last ten, love,” Noah whispers, his hand massaging the heated flesh beneath his fingertips. It hurts, but the pain is replaced by a yearning so strong that I whimper in his lap.
Like a bitch in heat I arch and ask for more.
His touch.
His desire.
To make this burning within my veins stop.
With one hand he gathers the hair at my nape and forces my head back. A harsh tug—I’m in his control—forces my eyes to his. Hooded dark blue eyes look at me with concern, but behind their depths I see another emotion burning.
His want mirrors my own. This perversion is awakening something darker from within. It grows—chokes us, because behind it all we were meant to end up like this. My body at his hands. In his control.
Those hungry eyes look at me. Silent communication. Are you okay?
I blink back a please and the asshole smirks. Aware of what I need even as my mind fights the sins I have laid bare to his eyes.
My release is so close. A fresh round of arousal drips from my core and onto his boxers.
I’m positioned over his lap, ass up, and the very tip of his cock is against my hip. He’s hard. Jerks against me when I gyrate against his length.
“Please,” I beg aloud this time and his hold on my hair tightens. The hand kneading my ass cheek spreads me open to look at my depravity. At what his own hands have caused.
That thong, that minuscule piece of fabric, can’t hide what this game is doing to me. The evidence, slick and inviting, is on his lap.
I shift against his cock and he hisses. “Be still!”
A crackle follows his command and we both shiver. Each time it appears, things change, become more.
“Very good my pets, but the audience wants more. Lose the panties, but without her standing up. Be creative, and there will be a reward.”
I exhale shakily. “Do it.”
“Are you sure?” As the word leave his lips, those same fingers that a minute ago exposed me to his eyes, now hold my panties in his grip. He doesn’t wait for a reply. A tug follows his question, the sound of fabric stretching meets my ears, and I nod.
Another pull and I feel every welt that forms on my skin from the rough treatment. The sole sounds in the room are his harsh breathing and mine. Loud exertion, but at the same time desperate for more.
What else could I say? No. Please don’t?
It would’ve been a bullshit lie and we both know it. The voice commands and we follow. It asks and we accept our fate.
There’s a sick part of me that relishes in this madness. Craves him. My Noah.
We have been dealt our cards; there is no escape. We must accept our fate.
Either we fuck each other, or we die.

About the authors:

Elena M. Reyes was born and raised in Miami Florida. She is the epitome of a Floridian and if she could live in her beloved flip-flops, she would.

As a small child, she was always intrigued with all forms of art—whether it was dancing to island rhythms, or painting with any medium she could get her hands on. Her first taste of writing came to her during her fifth grade year when her class was prompted to participate in the D. A. R. E. Program and write an essay on what they’d learned.

Her passion for reading over the years has amassed her with hours of pleasure. It wasn't until she stumbled upon fanfiction that her thirst to write overtook her world. She now resides in Central Florida with her husband and son, spending all her down time letting her creativity flow and letting her characters grow.

N. Isabelle Blanco is the Amazon Bestselling Author of the Allure Series, the Need Series with K.I. Lynn, and many others. At the age of three, due to an odd fascination with studying her mother’s handwriting, she began to read and write. By the time she’d reached kindergarten, she had an extensive vocabulary and her obsession with words began to bleed into every aspect of her life.

That is, until coffee came a long and took over everything else.

Nowadays, N. spends most of her days surviving the crazy New York rush and arguing with her characters every ten minutes or so, all in the hopes of one day getting them under control.

My review:

This book was hard to rate. It was dark and twisted and I'm obsessed with those kinds of books but there were some things in this one that just didn't do it for me.

I love dark reads and I love the utter dark and dangerous twisted ways that an author can get the characters to go through. Like I said before, this story was so hard to rate because in a twisted crazy way I loved how dark it was but some things just bothered me. And it wasn’t as much the dark stuff although one part was a bit over the top crazy (not the sexual kind). But I gotta give the authors credit for all the stuff that made the story unique and thrilling.

I was not crazy about the fact that they were kidnapped as friends and forced to have sex. I mean, how awful could that be? Yeah there were some horrendous things in this book which I don’t want to spoil but I’d rather be forced to have sex with my best friend – which I love and find attractive anyway – than to have sex with an ugly, disgusting person I don’t know. So far, so good.

Ivy has always been attracted to Noah and she always tried to ignore it and keep her distance. But now she’s being forced to be sexually active with her best friend which seems so easy but is so hard at the same time for them.

Their captor is playing games with Ivy and Noah and neither those two nor the reader knows what will happen next. This story is very original and suspenseful and ends in a cliffhanger which will have you wanting more. I definitely need to know how their story continues and I really wanna know what the captor is up to and especially who it is.

The Story:
Drugged. Kidnapped. Being forced to have sex. And those aren’t the only things Ivy has to deal with in one day. She’s being held captive with her best friend in a room with no windows or doors. There’s no way out and they are being watched by a sick person who commands them what they should do to her entertainment.
You might think it’s easy to withstand the commands? How about some torture and threats that will make you stop thinking instantly and have you do whatever was being asked of you? This twisted game becomes more dangerous with each second. How will Ivy and Noah handle the situation their thrown into?

First of all, I thought that this couldn't be so bad now, could it?!! I mean, no one wants to be kidnapped but they liked each other and wanted more from each other but both seemed oblivious about the other's feelings. So now it was the perfect opportunity for them to explore each other with the excuse that they were forced to do it.
I didn't quite like that it seemed so easy. They made out instantly and all the crying out and moaning without even yet kissing (especially on her part), and almost climaxing while kissing was a little over the top, especially under those circumstances. She was constantly crying out of pleasure and whatnot. I don’t know if I could be so sexed up under those conditions. My main emotion would be fear, not pleasure.

Be prepared that there are some horrific scenes in this book that aren't for the faint of heart! Even I was a bit shocked by the extent of the very sick games for the captor's entertaining.

This was some really effed up read and even now I'm not sure if I should love or hate it. It was something completely different to the stuff I've read so far but some things just bothered me. Like, how old where they? What did they do before they were kidnapped? She was talking about him as a man and he obviously had the body of a grown up. But she behaved like a kid in heat. It was like every touch brought her to climax and a kiss was the climax par excellence. He didn’t even touch her and she was wet already?! How could they have been best friends for years when she was this hot for him? It just took a touch or kiss for her to almost climax. He must have noticed that before for sure.

Anyway, I'm just a bit hung up on the friend's stuff but I still enjoyed this book because it kept me glued to the pages. It was suspenseful from start to finish and I'm sure the next book will be at least as thrilling if not more as this one because it's just a matter of time for all the tension to explode.

-- I received an ARC of this book from Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review. --

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
