This book contains material not suitable for readers under 18. While there are aspects of BDSM in several scenes, many are dub/non con. This book contains situations that some may find disturbing, including torture and rape which is part of the story and not intended for titillation. This book contains violence, sex, and blood, among other things. Reader discretion is advised.
Lydia awakes, bound and blind, to the whispered urgings of a man who has his hands on her. His words confuse her at first, but she soon understands they are both in the middle of a performance that will determine whether she remains in captivity or dies.
The crowd must be entertained, and her cellmate makes sure it is.
Forced submission is not the only horror Lydia endures. She has no memories of life before her imprisonment, and Joe, her cellmate, is her only comfort as the powerful creatures that hold them captive torture and debase her. Together, she and Joe cling to the will to survive long enough to break free and seek revenge. Their desire to sustain one another triumphs over their wardens' efforts to destroy them. There is no pain, no suffering, that can tear them apart.
Beyond their cell, their love is tested. Can they hold strong in the face of the challenge of the new powers they have gained along with their freedom? 
Ok...So definitely different than many other romances...let's just say this is NOT your typical romance, and yes, there are shared partners, and violence, rape and torture, pretty heavy stuff.  it's not overly graphic, and the story ended up being way more intriguing as it opens up and we find out about Cyrus and the captors, or the "other" people. 
This is not for everyone, but that is not to say that it was bad.  You do find yourself as the reader sucked into this CRAZY underworld of sorts, yeah, its WAYYYYYYY "F'd" up, but you do start to care about Lydia and Joe and you want to see them find a way to escape.
Like I said, it's way different than I would have thought, and the author does a great job at taking these horrible circumstances and creates a crazy world, but a well thought-out and interesting story came about.  So kudos to Bianca for her creativity in writing the DEADLY CAPTIVE Series.
Stolen from a bright life full of colors, happiness, and youth, Nicole Reed is dragged into a pit of pain and depravity where all she can hope for is a quick end. But her captors don't want to kill her. They want to use her to teach a little boy whom they plan to mold in their image.
She must free him before that happens. Only she can't stand against those who hold him, not alone. Her only hope is Vince, one of her tormentors, who may still show a glimmer of humanity.
Or maybe that's just a trick of the light. 
Warning: BDSM, graphic violence, dubious consent, forced sex, forced M/M sex, less than willing participation in edge play, content that some readers will consider objectionable including hot sex with a drool-iciously evil man.

About Bianca
Tell you about me? Hmm, well there's not much to say. I love hockey and cars and my kids…not in that order of course! Lol! When I'm not writing—which isn't often—I'm usually watching a game or a car show while working on promo. Going out with my kids is my only down time. I get to clear my head and forget everything.

As for when and why I first started writing, I guess I thought I'd get extra cookies if I was quiet for awhile—that's how young I was. I used to bring my grandmother barely legible pages filled with tales of evil unicorns. She told me then that I would be a famous author.

I hope one day to prove her right.

What a good question. I don't know. I can see how it could happen. It is possible.

When I first picked up the book, I wasn't sure I was going to like it. It is a bit deeper and darker, and that is to be expected. And yeah, it is one Messed up place!! But still both books were good and I'm anxiously awaiting the 3rd! :)

Let me start by saying I have read both in this series, they were my first taste of non-con books. (I can't wait for the third book to come out.) Before I started reading this genre I would have said no, after reading a few books I can absolutly see how it happens.So yes i think I could.

Michele Dewell said...

I have no idea

I would say no but if it is a situation where you may never be released, I could see it happening.

I think it would depend on the circumstances and how I was treated. Thanks for the giveaway.
