Have you ever finished a story and felt like you needed to shower because you felt dirty? That the story was so GRITTY and DIRTY that you just don’t feel “clean”? That is how I felt during the time that I read this story. Now don’t get me wrong…sometimes it was in a GOOD kind of “dirty”. But then there were other times that you were just like OMG…what did he just do?
Soren is from a different world. Well, not really, but he was raised in a “cult” environment and that was all he has ever known his entire life. He was raised to protect his “people” and his job is to do what his “people” need him to do. Once his job is complete, he can live his chosen life that has been planned for him. And that is all he has ever known. Everything was going as planned until he met April.
April was someone who chose to go into the cult. She didn’t know it was going to be what it was, but after she found her fiancé in bed with another woman. They were supposed to be saving themselves for marriage so she decided there had to be more out there. When she went looking for it, she ended up captured. She was rebellious and didn’t want to conform to the “rules” of the cult. They were going to send her away and Soren’s job was to travel with her to another “cult”. That was when the fun begins…
“I wanted him when I knew I shouldn’t when I knew it was wrong. And I did it anyway because I didn’t want him to suffer…because I made him suffer.”
April was starting to have feelings for her captor and she knew it was wrong. Soren had always liked April. He would watch her from a distance in the “cult”, but never acted on it.
“I’m not a lover, I’m a fighter. Someone who hurts. Who tortures. No one loves me. I was born to kill.”
This gets intense and you wonder what is wrong and what is right. But in the end…it is OH SO RIGHT! There was probably more “angst” in this story than I normally enjoy, but it was really, really good.
My eyes are glued to his body, and no matter how hard I try, I can’t peel them away, not even as he stands up to face me. The look in his eyes is monstrous, unlike anything else I’ve seen before, and it makes me swallow. Hard.
Because not only is his cock gigantic, unlike anything I’ve ever seen … it’s fully erect, and the tip glistens with pre-cum.
My whole body begins to shake as he takes a step forward, his pecs and biceps twitching with unbridled adrenaline coursing through his veins.
My eyes briefly tear away to glance at the metal I’m still holding tight. My fingers shake as I take a peek at the pointy pins inside where his shaft was locked in place.
And I realize this thing I’m holding in my hands, this metal, wasn’t just there to hurt him. It was there to contain him. To stop him from ever getting hard because it would hurt him too much.
And now … it’s gone.
He takes another step forward, and I take one back.
My breathing grows more ragged with every step I take away from the couch.
Away from him.
Because he is one giant, lumbering beast of a man with uncurbed lust filling his body with greed and hunger. A hunger he now seems to satiate … with me.
The metal drops to the floor, the sound as loud as the pounding in my chest.
I keep backing away while he keeps stalking toward me, his cock still as hard as a rock. Every step he takes makes my body that much more aware of just how much lust he has been hiding from me for as long as this metal has been on. How long has he been keeping himself in check? Months? Years?
“I want …” he says through gritted teeth, his voice sounding much more like that of a wolf than a human, and it makes goose bumps scatter on my skin. But he cut off his sentence, and I don’t know what it means … or why it makes me clench my cheeks together.
I step behind the seat, standing next to the couch, but he shoves it aside with ease. As I step back, I bump into the dining table, but nothing is here to grab or hide behind, and he’s approaching fast, so I dart off.
Right into a wall.
And it’s too late to spin around.
He’s right there, breathing into my neck.
One hand is firmly planted on the wall, the other on my waist.
His cock pushes against my ass.
He groans in my ear, the sound making me whimper. “You.”
