Trust in Me (Dark erotica)

Mia longs for the daily torture to end, but one last task keeps her holding on. In a betrayal of the crime lord who pulled her from the gutter, she’ll free the shipment of human cargo, and if she’s lucky, die in the process. The alternative is unfathomable, even to a woman well-versed in erotic torture. But luck abandons her yet again when she meets the security expert in charge of the shipment and finds herself face to face with her childhood crush. The man she once begged for help. The man who failed her.

Tyler Martinez is an undercover FBI agent with one chance to right the wrongs of his past. Thrust deep into the seedy world of human trafficking, he must put aside his guilt over abandoning Mia all those years ago in order to save her now.

Someone’s pulling the strings in this sadistic play on trust, but Tyler and Mia may not live long enough to see the curtain fall. Trust in Me is a story of erotic pain and incipient romance, spiraling ever faster toward betrayal or redemption.

Excerpt:

Carlos looked down at me from his seat with a half-smile. The guy next to him was speaking in low, urgent tones, but I had his attention.

Other whores might try coy smiles or a flash of cleavage, but if you really knew El Jefe—and, unfortunately, I did—then you knew all you had to do was drop to his feet. I knew what he wanted and how he liked it, knowledge born of years of training. As long as I behaved, he wouldn’t kill me. I craved the release of death, but I was too well trained to earn it.

I reached his leather shoes and waited. The same Italian leather shoes that had kicked me only recently, but they weren’t a danger to me now. Carlos didn’t like to get too messy when he had guests. Even though I didn’t like performing, I could be glad this new guy was around today. Then again, I’d probably have to service him next.

Carlos unzipped his pants.

The guy sucked in a quiet breath, as if we’d shocked him.

That wouldn’t stop Carlos. He wasn’t an exhibitionist. He was a sadist, and the only thing better than causing someone physical pain was causing him emotional discomfort. Every pinch was designed to humiliate, every blow to subjugate. You’re not worthy, they said, and I lapped up every blow to my shrunken ego like the masochist I’d learned to be.
 

   

 
Praise for Trust in Me:

“Good gracious! Skye Warren is a true mistress of dark and twisted love stories. As the sequel to KEEP ME SAFE, TRUST IN ME affirms Ms. Warren’s talent for creating broken characters in dire situations, but leaving readers with hope at the end.”

- The Forbidden Bookshelf

 

“I think this author does a really great job at not just showing Mia as a physical whore, but presenting her mental status as a whore is done so well.”

- Smexy Books

 

“If ever there was a time to heed the author’s foreward, it would be with this book. Whereas in some nonconsent/SM books, there is some pleasure, pleasurable moments for Mia are few and rare. It is no wonder she trusts no one, which does lead to misunderstandings, and amazing that she still has the capacity to hope. Well-written continuation of the series, definitely curious as to the depth of pain in the next book.”

- S. Richards (Amazon reviewer)

 

“This is not your typical love story, but a story and a journey of a woman whose never known love. Skye Warren’s dark erotica tale, it goes there, and pushes the reader in to a world that may not be for some readers, but strokes the curiosity of others as well.”

- Romance Novel Junkies

 

“I devoured Trust in Me because it was good from the first word right until the last one. Skye Warren knows how to deliver a powerfully poignant story that will keep her readers engrossed.”

- Sizzling Hot Book Reviews

 

“This book is definitely not for the faint of heart and as I said before, it feels wrong to say I enjoyed this book but the writing was fantastic. Any book that can pull such an emotional response from me in just 100 pages I have to say a big thank you to the author!”

- Sam, E and R’s Awesomeness

 

“This story includes intrigue, human perseverance against the impossible, passion and non-consensual sex, disciplinary beatings and the desperate drive of one woman to make a difference in a world that has been unkind to her. The most interesting aspect of Skye Warren’s story is the ambiguity between good and bad. Figuring out who’s who was part of what kept me reading into the early morning hours.”

- FallenDepths (Amazon reviewer)

 

“”Trust In Me” is strong, dark and twisted, exactly how a dark erotica book should be.”

- Darkest Sins

 

“I was captured from the very first sentence, drawn into the story as if watching it play out in my own mind. The story pacing and flow of information were flawless. The characters were obviously flawed, yet undeniably realistic. No matter how brutal the story it ended with a HEA and a feeling of hope.”

- Wicked Reads

 

“Trust In Me… this is a fabulous story. I’m not even sure how to classify this book. Erotica, Dark Erotica, Suspense, Romance… all of the above? This story is so multifaceted that I’m still thinking about it a week later.”

- Fictional Candy

 

“It felt like I was reading a much longer book and it was a very intense read. Palpable. Tight.”

- Manic Readers

 

“The author plays with metaphors and imagery in a prominent way to express Mia’s abuse at the hands the men in her life. This story was literally hard to put down.”

- Night Owl Reviews

 

“Be warned, Trust in Me is not for the faint of heart…Certainly a well written piece and one that will stay with you.”

- Coffee Beans, Love Scenes Reviews

 

“Mia’s character is very well written and as I read the story through her eyes I don’t see the mistreated Mia, but a strong young lady who will do whatever it takes to survive and save others.”

- Just Erotic Romance Reviews

 

“Skye Warren has brought a painful and realistic dark tale of human trafficking, prostitution, and masochism to light. Trust in Me is full of twists and angst and kept me trying to discern what would happen next in Mia and Tyler’s world of pain.”
