When Brendan Delaney answered an ad for an artist's model, he was looking for an easy way to earn some extra cash. But Morgan Roan wanted more than just a model. Soon, Brendan finds himself caught in a web of deception and desire, lust and betrayal—her captive muse. What price pleasure?
Her Captive Muse has an intriguing title and a strong cover both of which had me desperately searching for a quiet few hours to devour the actual book.
Once I started this wonderfully written story it quickly becomes clear that sexual attraction doesn’t get much darker or more dangerous than the situation Brendan Delaney finds himself in. He likes being looked after, he likes sex- a lot and he really ‘loves’ white powder. In a headlong fall into lust his addiction quickly extends to the dazzling artist, Morgan Roan; he just can’t seem to get enough of her whether she is being ‘sweet as pie’ or dominant and secretive.
As a reader I was constantly trying to second guess the plot (I love it when that happens), Morgan’s intentions in particular had me itching for answers– sometimes I got her right sometimes I didn’t. Brilliant. My heart strings were continually pulled by Brendan because Ms Skye has a wonderful knack of showing her protagonists decision making processes as logical even though they’re not choices I would have made.
The sex was spicy and kinky, great if you like bondage and pain with your literature. Brendan laps it all up though there are times when you’re curious as to how much he is enjoying it and how much he is wondering what the hell he is doing - again, a twist in the characters conscious which keeps you hanging on for more.
The best way to describe my emotions while reading this book is ‘captivated’. Brendon is a wonderful character who you can’t help but love as much as you want to shake him. I won’t give away the end but suffice to say I will be hunting out more books by this very talented author.
