Book Review: 'Dark Desire' by Emily Jane Trent


What can I say…I’m a sucker for Billionaire themed reads and I love new authors. I’ll have to say if you don’t like cliff hangers make sure to grab Naked Submission (Touched by You 2) before reading this one. This book has a good story line and a decent length, not too much that bogged me down. There wasn’t a lot of back story on either character, but I was still be able to get the feel for Tanner and Natalie.
As naive in the ways of men as Natalie is, she is rather accepting of new experiences. I’ll be interested to see if she loses any of herself. For Tanner, the need to control is what drives him and its how he was conditioned. His controlling way is how he was raised. Add a very independent young woman with not a lot of world experience with a slightly older man of the world and you have sparks. Even with the dire warning that Tanner kept sharing with Natalie, will they still take a stab at a relationship?
I just loved their first date because it was so unbelievably sweet. For all the hopeless romantics out there, that scene will be a definite “aww” factor. There wasn’t too much BDSM in it. The bondage was hinted to in the introduction where needs, pleasure, and limits were discussed, but nothing to definite. There wasn’t a lot of sex, but the scenes where well written. I very much enjoyed this book and will look to reading the next in the series. I’d recommend it and hope you enjoy.
