Title: Take Me, Break Me
Author: Cari Silverwood
Release Date: March 3 2013
This book is part of a dark erotic fiction series and may disturb some readers.
Jodie is scraping the barrel trying to stay afloat. An idea arrives that could rescue her finances and bring her together in a kinky way with a man she never gave up on. She's terrified and fascinated, and tempted as hell.
Capture fantasies rule her eBook. Re-enacting one in a documentary would surely be irresistible viewing to millions of women?
But Jodie and Klaus discover that underneath an ordinary man dark desires may lurk. What will win in the end? The man and lover, or the monster?
Warning: Capture fantasy; dubious consent; anal play; M/f as well as one m/f/f/m scene; BDSM themes including caning, spanking, bondage, and needle play. Also contains one beginner Dom who is exploring sadism but is still working out how and when to stop.
Holy Fuck! What a dark, pain-edged orgasmic ride this one turned out to be! Cari Silverwood is a new discovery for me and now I’m going to have to slavishly read her back list because, wow, how wonderful is it to find an author that appears to be such a good fit. If you like your BDSM a little edgy, your consent a little dubious and your boundaries pushed then I suggest you give her a try!
As the blurb states, Jodie decides to make a documentary about capture fantasy – a fetish which she believes turns many women on as they read about it on their e-readers and she’s not wrong there, right? She’s looking for a healthy dose of Stockholm Syndrome. She enlists Klaus, her accountant and ex-lover, to play the role of captor and agree upon a schedule and a rigid set of rules. Klaus duly locks her up in her basement but it soon becomes apparent that this is not working at all – it’s dull and staid and they both know it’s just pretend.
Jodie had given Klaus an ereader full of books to serve as background reading he’s done his own research online and has a deliciously wicked box of tricks and somehow Jodie has managed to waken a latent sadist residing inside Klaus that neither of them ever knew was there. It’s kind of like awakening the Kraken as Klaus takes charge of the situation and forces Jodie to submit and tears up her ‘rules’ and starts to run the show his way. She no longer has a say but that’s OK because she trusts him, right? Or does she?
I so enjoyed this – it’s so fucking HOT it’s unbelievable. I know I peeked over the top of my Kindle at my poor unsuspecting hubby with bedroom eyes as I read this and I feel sure that loads of readers probably did too! It’s very much the evolution of a sadist and his submissive little masochist as both of them make huge discoveries about themselves as the story progresses and they edge far closer to a Master/Slave TPE relationship. They're both very strong characters which makes Jodie’s descent into submission hard fought and difficult and yet thoroughly engaging to read.
It’s really incredibly arousing and the sadism is pretty edgy. It’s so unbelievably erotic to read and I positively devoured this in one sitting. I know I’m never going to look at accountants in the same way ever again! The story is told from alternating view points so we get to hear exactly what Jodie and Klaus are thinking as they get further and further into their kink and I really valued getting inside both of their heads. Klaus begins to take things deeper and darker than either of them could ever have anticipated and I so enjoyed how they began to fear that he may take things too far as he pushed Jodie far beyond her boundaries.
I’ve read the blurbs for the rest of the books in this series and I know that Cari Silverwood is about to push me beyond the boundaries I normally like to read within but I’m about to take that journey with her because we all know we learn the most about ourselves when we’re out of our comfort zones and I’m inspired enough by this author to follow her down the dark twisted path she’s delighting in dragging her readers down.
FANTASTIC new discovery for me – if you like your romance dark, your sex with a hefty helping of kink and your consent dubious at least then Cari Silverwood’s the gal for you!!

About Cari Silverwood
Cari Silverwood is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling writer of kinky darkness or sometimes of dark kinkiness, depending on her moods and the amount of time she's spent staring into the night. She has an ornery nature as well as a lethal curiosity that makes her want to upend plots and see what falls out when you shake them.
When others are writing bad men doing bad things, you may find her writing good men who accidentally on purpose fall into the abyss and come out with their morals twisted in knots.
This might be because she comes from the land down under, Australia, or it could be her excessive consumption of wine.
Freaking out readers is her first love and only runs second to freaking out the people living in her books. Her favorite hobby is convincing people she has a basement...though she really doesn’t. Promise. If it existed it would be a terrifying place where you would find all the dangerous things that you never knew you craved.
To escape you'd need to get the key you can see through the grate in your cell door. A key that’s hanging from the ceiling by string. The light above is flickering on...off...and you can hear feet dragging along the corridor floor. Your door is locked.
Anyone know how to get blood stains out of concrete?
