Facade By D.H. Sidebottom & Ker Dukey

WARNING! This book is Dark erotica. This book contains situations that some may find offensive. If you are sensitive to graphic violence read with caution. This book also leads into a second book. You will get answers but the story will continue into a final installment. You have been warned. Enjoy. 

You meet someone. You date. You fall in love. You marry. 
The four simple rules of love…. 
Wrong! I’m getting married but I’d never met him before now, never dated him, never fell in love. I have no access to the memories of the most magical time of anyone’s life. 
My mind won’t allow me to evoke the past, I can’t remember those simple stages to lead me to the fourth . 
I can’t comprehend why I would have ever wanted to marry someone like Dante. I should never have passed the first stage, although, I may have seen him through the eyes of the woman I once was, this me that lives, breathes here now, can’t understand how we made it to the next stage. 
I’m not sure, without memories, how I know that this voice inside me, telling me I would never have chosen him, speaks some truth, I just know. He’s controlling, arrogant, callous and violent, and utterly hell bent on humiliating and degrading me – Like watching me falter, watching me struggle to comply and be the woman he asked to marry, powers him- as though he wants to break me piece by piece. Fiber by fiber. Until all that’s here is the shell he created from a soul that I once owned. 

Now my memories are slowly returning. And they show me a completely different side to meeting him. Our dates, falling in love. The Dante haunting me in the shadows of my mind is loving, gentle and utterly enamored with me, nothing like the man with me now. 
And this is what taunts me. My tender lover turned into a debauched, cruel sadist who is determined to consume my life, destroy my mind and murder my spirit. 

I am, Star, and just like with some stars in the sky, the light you see is an echo, a façade, I am already gone 
I am a no one. 
Especially to him. To him I am the dark in his desires, the corrupt in his depravity. 
The sin in his immorality.

*****5 Amazingly Twisted Stars*****

Another major roller coaster ride that leaves you thinking what did I just read...what just happened??? I have read books by both authors...Fragile Truths, The Decimation of Mae (which totally left me with bizarre dreams), The Salvation of Daniel (AMAZING), Empathy, and now Facade.  These authors individually have a brillant and wicked mind, but together is a whole new ballgame.  Mindf*$ck, dark, completely mind numbing, brilliance...

The story...
Star is happy without giving anything away you start this book with an idea of the past a fiancé a happy life everything you would wish for and then she wakes up to the unknown, who is she? where is she? what's her name? who does she belong to? does she have a family? What does she do? Yes she has no idea of who she is, no memories, no collection of ANYTHING. Zilch Nadda.

So lets go through the process, she's DRUGED and KIDNAPPED this is a captive story, there's two sides to every story and when I thought I had some idea of what was happening it all changed paths then there was a mother of all Cliffhangers just a slight warning there but don't let that put you off as this was a really enjoyable read. 

Dante is in love with Star always has been always will be the thing that Star cannot understand is this person she's supposed to love who she's supposed to be getting married to has a hard edge to him the slight memories' that are slowly creeping in are of a gentle Dante, a compassionate Dante a loving and nurturing Fiancé this Dante is everything BUT He is strong, edgy, sexy, animalistic, rough, demanding and CONTROLLING

I am really trying hard to come up with the right words as I still really have no clue what I've just read, this is a cluster for sure saying all this. This story is mind blowing, intense, erotic, sensual and a sexy ASS read. There's a good mix of both and if your new to dark but love the edgier, erotic read  then this is definitely a good start begin with as it dabs into both sides of the coin.
