“Resist or obey. Those are my choices.”

MARLA

Alone at a bar, recently fired from my job and about to move, no one will notice that I’ve gone missing, and my abductors know it. Smuggled to a secluded facility in the mountains, locked in a cell and stripped of my dignity, they’ve threatened me with a fate worse than death. They aim to break my will. They plan to erase me.

My captors are vicious monsters, except for one: the doctor, Gabriel. He urges me to accept their control and spare myself months, or even years, of pain and torment. Yet his merciful demeanor hides a dark, burning secret. Smoldering and mysterious, I’m drawn to him and his talk of submission. He may be my best shot at escape, but I hunger for far more.

With Gabriel’s help, the others will pay for what they’ve done to me. They wanted a toy, but they’ve woken a terror...

GABRIEL

If I’d known the truth about Halloran Asylum, I would have burned it to the ground long ago. Now I’m an accessory to unspeakable crimes, and no one will ever believe my story. For years I made peace with fate, but after a violent episode pushes me to the edge, I swore never to let them harm anyone else. Now they’ve taken another, and I can’t let it go.

I need to make Marla understand her strength and resolve will only cause her greater suffering. At first, training her is just a way of buying time, but her response to my touch, my command, drives me wild. I have to have her, but standing in my way is a horrid truth that could cost me her trust. If that happens, we’ll both be lost, trapped in this place forever.

I don’t care. I’ll risk everything for Marla, even if it means letting out the beast within...

Publisher’s note: “Erased” is a dark, romantic thriller with erotic content, no cliffhangers, no cheating and a HEA. It contains material some may find disturbing. Reader discretion is advised.

ERASED: We first meet Marla, an attractive female who's recently been fired from her job as a news reporter alone in a bar on the outskirts of town which caters to all sorts, from bikers to out of townies to students. This supposedly being her last night in town before she moves on. 

Just as she’s on the verge of calling it a night she meets a guy that straight away sends a warning vibe coursing through her body but ignores it and figures why not have one more drink for the road. 

Striding out of the bar and awaiting a taxi to arrive she’s taken, abducted, her pepper spray she had on the ready dropped and lost to her, a cloth of some sort thrown over her head lights out, the world ceases to exist. 

Waking up and being jostled around like a sack of potatoes in a moving vehicle it’s some time before they arrive at their destination where she meets other undesirable characters one darker, more menacing than the next. But one man stands out above these vicious monsters and that's Gabriel the doctor. 

Taken, bound, held prisoner in a padded cell, submitted to unthinkable sexual advances by her captors. many twists and turns that had me biting my nails, wanting, needing, to read faster to see what was going to come at me next. 

He's always watching

TO SUM IT ALL UP: It took me a while to get into this, used to the author's writing style, as it seemed as though it was overworded, disjointed, and it took me a while to connect on all levels with the story. Thoughts that kept screaming through my mind as I was reading it were: For me to connect with her character I needed to feel that terror of being kidnapped, forced into a situation out of her hands, I expected more, more fight, more cussing, maim, strike out, bite, kick, we know she's capable of it from one scene but after that it seemed like she'd given up. 

I was also hoping it would delve more into Iris, we're kind of left with alot of questions that were never fully answered. 

BUT then the story like a switch turned around for me, because as soon as I reached about half way I really started getting into the book to the point where even though I was bone tired and sleep was calling me I couldn't put this down. I devoured the pages, chapter by chapter just to see how it all would end, is he friend or foe? Thoughts that kept racing through my mind like a broken record, can he be trusted?
