DON'T : A statement of what should not be done: a contraction of do not : a single word title for a book that just blew the fuck out of my mind!!!

Got you Jack! "
Wow...just...WOW! I'm not even sure how I'm going to review this awesome book because at the moment words are failing me. This is psychological battering at its best and I don't just mean for the three complex guys involved in this story, I mean for the reader too, but when you make it to the end, boy is it worth it!
Don't go into this thinking you can just pick it up AND deal with 'Real Life' at the same time because I'm telling you now that isn't going to happen. I wasn't even planning to read this until BDSM week was on the horizon but I had to see what I was letting myself in for when I found out that this one had been chosen for me to read for the post. I glanced at the first page to 'check it out' and at 4am this morning I finally closed my Kindle... that's how compelling this book is, I couldn't put it down. I was gone to the world, nothing else existed outside of the pages of this story. Real Life was just background noise!!!
What can I say about Jack, Jan and Gray? OMG! The three of them put me through a psychological mine field! Everything about them and their perplexing involvement is deliciously warped and twisted. Their sizzling passionate relationships, their murky pasts, the dark kinks that drive their every move, the intense tension that's never far from the surface, the danger, the tricky, convoluted plot that twists and turns, doing a total 180 whenever you think you've got something sussed and of course the mind fuckery that's pretty much relentless, pulling you deeper into what appears to be an unfathomable situation. I was exhausted when I'd finished but also excited, awe struck and totally in love with this story. My favourite BDSM book up to now and even though it’s not a new release, definitely a gold star read of 2014!
Just wait till you meet these guys yourselves. I swear you'll fall hard and fast for Jack. He's a dark, complicated, gorgeous, loveable, frustrating multi-faceted man. Holy hell, he pulled at my heartstrings, making me melt at times. The beautiful Jan is the least dark of the three, the most gentle but that doesn't make him any less of a mystery, if any of them REALLY surprised me, it was him. There were times when I wanted to shake him because certain situations and misconceptions caused him to lash out at Jack and some of his decisions had me gritting my teeth. It was a matter of WTF! ...Noooo!! But I still loved him. When he and Jack were together, it was electric. Then last of all we have Gray. Master Dom, master manipulator and one shit scary, enigmatic, controlling, dangerous, secretive man. I hated him but DAMN, at the same time I was drawn to him, like a moth to a flame.
I just couldn't get enough of these men. This has to be one of the most raw, gritty, erotic, sexually charged novels I've read and its core plot one of the most exciting. The sex scenes are off the charts when it comes to lust and sexual tension and the BDSM scenes and kink pull no punches. It's a clever writer who can take tortuous ideas like this and turn them into such a brilliant, edge of your seat, unputdownable, psychological thriller. I'm still reeling!
MONIQUE’S REVIEW OF ~ DON’T…
Pre-Release Review Coming this week!!!
Antidote (Don’t… #2)
Publication Date:13th May 2014
Video footage of Jack Harrison sleeping with Cutter, a man who has mutilated teenagers, should have stayed dead and buried with the man who had filmed it. Yet when footage to Jack’s past starts appearing on Internet porn sites, Jack’s whole world is again turned on its head. At first the porn links are done to unsettle, to disrupt Jack’s fire and ice world: all the sexed-up adrenaline of being caught between the pleasure to Gray Raoul's BDSM kink, and the gentleness of Jan Richards’ vanilla touch. But when the content of the porn sites force even Gray to turn his back on Jack, leaving Jack isolated and away from the full protection of the Master’s Circle, Jack is left at the mercy of a group of men who are out to alter Jack’s whole perception on his BDSM lifestyle.
As brutally as possible, Jack’s sex life is now live webcam feed for a whole new audience.
About Jack L.Pyke
Jack blames her dark writing influences on living close to one of England’s finest forests. Having grown up hearing a history of kidnappings, murders, strange sightings, and sexual exploits her neck of the woods is renowned for, Jack takes that into her writing, having also learned that human coping strategies for intense situations can sometimes make the best of people have disastrously bad moments. Redeeming those flaws is Jack’s drive, and if that drive just happens to lead to sexual tension between two or more guys in a D/s relationship, Jack’s the first to let nature take its course.
