The Director Cover social media size

Everybody wants to be an actress, right?

The lights, the camera, the action? The fame, the money, the beauty and esteem. It’s all part of the package.

Unless, of course, you’re part of HIS films.

Ethan Cole was one of the best directors in the business until the day he disappeared. He was charismatic, gorgeous, intriguing and so brilliant that no other person could compare. People believed he’d simply quit. In truth, he’d gone underground.

I found him after being stolen from the streets. I was thrown into his new world, his fantasies, his decadent chaos, and I found myself fighting just to stay alive.

He seduced me while tormenting me.

Made me a star while keeping me hidden from the public’s eye.

He asked me one simple question before shoving me in front of the glittering lights and dark lens of his camera.

One question, requiring only one response:

Fuck or Die?

CC’s ARC Review ~ The Director by Lily White

Title: The Director
Author: Lily White
Genre:  Dark Romance
Type:  Standalone
POV:  First person- dual

Published: December 13, 2017

4 Stars!!

 

Emma Hart’s life irrevocably changes when she is abducted and given a terrifying proposition. With limited options, Emma’s rationale for her choice is the path of least resistance. However, when confronted with what lies behind door number two, her perspective radically changes to where every single last moment is earned. 

“So, what will it be?” He asked, the silky croon like sandpaper against my senses now that I understood the type of monster he was. “Fuck or die?”

Ethan Cole is a director with certain professional goals. As he studies people for emotional subtleties, he captures each unadulterated nuance on film. Without filters, Ethan creates a world of violence, pain and raw fear.

“But I have better uses for a woman like you.” Leaning closer, his lips brushed across my cheek when he said, “You won’t like them, but I will.”

As Emma’s time becomes limited, she learns how to survive in ways she could have never foreseen. Using what she believes to be an advantage to manipulate her situation, Emma is still left vulnerable as the time for her final performance nears. While Ethan continues to control the environment in furtherance of his vision, the course set.

“I believe there’s a fire inside you that’s not present in many women. I’d like to use that fire for my personal gain.”

Told in dual POV, the nefarious tone of this novel is mainly felt through the perspective of Emma as she endures the reprehensible actions of her captors. Yet, even with these conditions, Emma manages to retain a sense of humanity. As Ethan’s experience is shared sporadically, his agenda is clear showing his ability and willingness to thrive in this depraved environment. Knowing her demise is near, Emma must process all her emotions and summon her resolve into the ultimate final act. 

This novel definitely dives head first into a dark and evil world where limits are nonexistent. While Emma’s situation is desperate, she managed to channel an inner strength she didn’t know existed though at times it seemed to provide exactly what Ethan wanted. However, with the level of darkness evident in the physical acts, I was hoping the psychological elements between Emma and Ethan would have been equally as potent. Though there was manipulation, it felt offset by certain actions at times. 

In The Director, Lily White creates a disturbing and grisly story that will keep readers on edge at all times. The theme of adaptation pervades the plot which allows for the characters to act the way they do. While it isn’t justification, it just becomes a means to an end. This one isn’t for the fainthearted but for those who like to test their limits. I recommend!

SYNOPSIS:
ANDY – Baker was an outlaw, a criminal, a biker, a bad boy, and a thief. I should have run as far and fast as I could. Instead, on the day we met, I let him have his way with me. Repeatedly. I couldn’t help myself.His intensity and swagger lured me, but it was the way he redefined sex that was sure to keep me coming back, day after day.

His sordid ways scared me. If I could simply keep feelings out of it, it’d just be sex. And, from a man like Baker, sex was all I wanted.

BAKER – When she moved in next door, I knew I was in trouble. She was sexy. She was irresistible. She had spunk. She was also the manager of a bank my MC had robbed six months prior. She didn’t recognize me, because we wore masks. If she ever found out who I really was, there’d be hell to pay.

It’d be nothing like the hell I’d be living in if my MC found out I was fucking her. We’d issued an order to kill her on sight.

So far, the men in the MC hadn’t seen her, but she couldn’t hide forever. 

She was living next door to the clubhouse.

BAKER is Book I of the Devil’s Disciples books, a series of stand-alone novels. No other book is required to tell this tale. It is a complete story of one of the men in the MC. There is no cheating, no sex outside the relationship, no OW/OM drama, and there are no club whores. This is MC Romance redefined. No cliffie. HEA.

ARC/LOYDA’S REVIEW~ Fear The Wicked by Lily White

3.5-4★★★★Stars

Genre: Dark Erotic Suspense
Type: Book 2 of 2 from Illusions Duet
POV: First Person – Multiple

 

This review can also be found on GOODREADS.

 

“The people dressing themselves in the shroud of being good men that can commit the most evil…Those men would be better off opening their eyes to the truth that stands them, because to see it is to fear the wicked.”

 Image result for gif we're all dark inside

Fear the wicked; continues the journey of manipulation and deception; of what is wrong and right.  Is hard to review this book without giving away spoilers for book one so I am going to try to keep it short.  I personally liked knowing the main reason one of the characters turns out the way he is; I don’t even blame him for trying to get justice of his own; however some of the things he does were just difficult to justify.

“The best method of trapping a victim and forcing their silence is to make them believe that they, too, were dirty.”

I had very high expectations for the heroine on this book as for I didn’t really liked her in book one; I was really hoping her character would step up but instead I was annoyed by her and very disappointed.  I must say there was one character that turned around and surprised me; he wasn’t even one of the main characters but he had some common sense and figured things out better than others and I liked that about him.

“It’s not the fault of the faith that we’ve sunk so far, it’s what’s been done with it in the hands of power hungry men.”

On this second book and the conclusion of the duet we get answers to so many questions we had from first book.  I did however wished instead of retelling us what happened I would have enjoyed it more if we had gotten actual things happen.  I liked how Jacob decided to find his own answers and do what he thought it was right even if that meant sacrificing his life for what he believed.  Overall; I liked the premises of the story and the illusions as the titles itself.  This book would be appealing to readers who are open minded about faith, believes and deceptions.

“One can’t truly heal if they pretend the cracks don’t exist.”

Jasmine Greene childhood was not any normal and typical one.  Her mother was obsessed with making her a star. It was clearly that she was talented and she had the potential for success but her mother’s constant push to be perfect made her feel lonely and sad.  She meets a boy who changes her life and makes her feel whole.

“She was a business woman who ignored the shadows behind closed doors. Her focus was on my talents and increasing them each day.”

Elliott Adams; found music as his only way to escape his cruel life in school.  He was constantly bullied and he felt so weak but music made him stronger.  When the new girl wants to be his friend he didn’t understand it but yet he didn’t stop her.  Jasmine made him feel normal and he found a true friendship in her.

“You’re a reminder of the best time of my life, and I didn’t think I deserved you…You’re the music in a mute world, and my heart beats because you’re here.”

I honestly had no idea what to except of this book; however the story was so different and unique and loaded with feels that had me in tears.  The concept of all the wonderful music, musicians and music itself in the story made it so much real and raw.

Both this characters had their struggles.  Elliott fought a battle with himself after a horrible event that made him shut down from the world and his music.  Jasmine felt lost and alone as well and thought that no matter how much she gave it was never enough.  When they both reunite it was so hard to see them struggling.  I absolutely enjoyed the side characters and how the author put this book together to make a fascinating read.

“Because of her, I was feed from behind the bars of my darkest days.”

Overall; I really loved this story.  The emotions were overload and we get to see about how unfair life can sometimes be but in the midst of it all there is always hope.  Readers who enjoy stories about love, true friendship and family and forgiveness will find this book appealing.

Behind the Bars, the first beautiful and emotional standalone in the all-new Music Street Series from Brittainy C. Cherry is LIVE!

Behind the Bars Wrap

Behind the Bars by Brittainy C. Cherry

Release Date: December 7th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.

The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness.

Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.

Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find.

And in a flash, she was gone.

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.

She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.

Caged.

Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.

Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

When we met again, she was the darkest storm.
