Lana Martin had a simple life, uncomplicated by the things that normally plagued her friends. But then terror struck and she found herself the unwilling plaything of a sexual deviant. Under his control, she is forced to endure things that would have crushed most people, but somehow she managed to stay alive long enough to be rescued and return to a normal life.
Only life would never be normal again for Lana, because she came out of the ordeal with an unsettling knowledge that she had never been truly happy before. The deeply terrifying events she had endured had done something she hadn’t expected; they had awakened something dark inside of her, a lust that could only be satisfied under the protection of a black hood. She found that only in that darkness, could she truly be free from her inhibitions.
When Daniel Morrow, the man who had held her captive is released from prison, Lana’s nightmare begins again, and she fears she will never be safe again. Her life, her future now relies on one man, the man she had once dismissed as unable to satisfy her longing, her former boyfriend Sergio Marsilis. Follow along with Lana as the darkness is awakened inside of her, and then as she searches for the one thing that has always eluded her, perfect sexual freedom.
Review by Brittany
This review only covers part three of Freeing Lana, since I had already written reviews for parts one and two. Please read parts one and two before reading this review.
This book was based off of real events, which really lends to the wtf factor. This book is also very dark, and again, based off real events. Someone lived through this. Just think about that.
Lana suffered a horrible tragedy, being kidnapped and sexually assaulted. That experience changed her forever. She turned into a sexual deviant, almost, really wanting to explore the darker side of sex. When her boyfriend, Sergio, wasn’t able to come to terms with that, and not be what she needed, she turned to the local police officer, known as Tink.
Tink was able to help her with her desires. He filled her in every way possible. She was happy. Until she found out that he knew something that he should have told her. That ruined her.
Meanwhile, we also have Sergio’s point of view. HOLY GOD Sergio changed, like 360 degree changed. He’s building sexual contraptions and really taking charge in the bedroom, just not with Lana. But he never really got over her.
I love dark books. I really do. Dark erotica is definitely my favorite genre to read. There was just one action that happened in this book where I put down my kindle, stared straight ahead, and said, “What. The. F**k.”
And as I said, the fact that it’s based on real events lends a lot to the reader’s experience. Things like this really happen to people.
Overall, I have to give this book four stars. While I loved it, there were just some things that I cringed at. Other than that, I loved it. I’m still trying to process this book, too and I finished it about three days ago.
Kristin Elyon has promised us more Sergio and Lana and I can’t wait!
