#FirstLineFriday: Opaque Mirrors

Do you like the dark side? I revel in the darkness. Once I had a taste, it was impossible to go back to the rainbow farting unicorn. Not like I ever been that kind of reader, but still… lol! There’s just something about the dark side of human psyche that made is so fascinating. The things we are capable of doing – giving and taking is limitless.

I understand some people refused to read things that make them uncomfortable. But for me, I like being pushed. I like putting myself in the characters’ shoes. I’m not stupid enough to want all the vile disturbing things that happen in dark books to happen to me in real life, but I still want to live it. And that’s the beauty of written words. It let us live a different life safely behind the pages. It would be a waste to limit myself to only “normal” stories.

Since I don’t have reading hard limit, it is hard for me to find books that are dark enough to satisfy my dark needs. So whenever I found one, I could feel my evil side smirk like she just feasted on some terrified souls haha! Opaqe Mirrors is a dark erotic horror and definitely earned its place in the true dark category.

Opaque Mirrors by Courtney Lane
Amazon | Goodreads  |  My Review

When the line between fiction and reality bleeds, there is no end to the lies or a truth to be found.

It was never supposed to happen. He was supposed to remain a porn star—the source of my fantasies—in my expansive collection of torture porn. But he found me, and he only wants one thing from me. He calls it the ultimate orgasm; death.
He gives me the illusion of choice—my life or his.

I thought my choice would be the end of my troubles, but it followed me to a town known for its close-minded, small population and hypocritical way of thinking.

My madness lurks in the shadows. It watches me and seduces me with pretty smiles and dirty degradation. It assures me that my fantasies aren’t wrong. It tells me that they will star in all of my nightmares…and I want nothing more.

Content contains strong violence, coarse language, graphic sex, scenes of horror, and situations that most readers would find objectionable. Reader discretion is highly advised.


Review: The Rebirth of Sin by Courtney Lane

Title: The Rebirth of Sin
Author: Courtney Lane
Genre: Dark Erotic Thriller
Type: Book 2 of 3 from Wicked Trinity trilogy
POV: First Person – Multiple

Months after she survived the cult Rebirth, Keaton Mara tried to move on with her life. But everyday became harder and harder when new scars kept coming while the old ones still haunting.

Noah Oliver had everything planned out. Believing he had a higher purpose, he was determined to start anew his mission and continue his crusade no matter what it cost.

When I read book 1, I was slightly disappointed when it wasn’t as dark as I expected. Well… looks like this one made my dark heart pitter patter lol!

It was a power trip I was hooked on, and I didn’t know the severity of my addiction until she came along.

Not everyone would be able to appreciate Noah in this book. He was brutal and calculated. Half of the time I wanted him dead and another half I wanted to pat his back.

There was one place she fit perfectly, and that was with me.

I Iike seeing Keaton struggled with her body and her mind. She was constantly pushed beyond her limits and it was interesting seeing her rationalizing her choices.

“I’m going to darken your soul so severely you’ll never know the definition of light again—like I promised you I would. Welcome to the first day of the start of your real rebirth.”

As mentioned, this book is dark. There were many points where I cringed in fascination. And I love the direction of the story. There were three parts and each one has its own “life”. I had a feeling about something and I was right. It certainly made the story more interesting.

If you like hard fucking (in every sense of the word) this book absolutely delivered – pain, pleasure and everything in between.

She was mine, completely…finally.

The Rebirth of Sin is a deliciously dark and twisted continuation of the series. I’m looking forward to the conclusion hopefully with an epic showdown.
