Addison Cain-Silent Captive

Well fuck me sideways, our Soul-Devouring Dark Empress has done it again. I mean, oh holy fuck. Not that there is one damn thing holy about Silent Captive, holey maybe, but not holy. And sideways may actually be the only way that Wren doesn’t get fucked, but I make no guarantees.

Silent Captive is not a standalone. If you haven’t read Branded Captive, stop right now, go read it and Silent Captive and then come back. Don’t worry, I’ll still be here. There will probably be spoilers for Branded in here, just because that’s the nature of the beast. I work really hard at keeping them out of the blogs, you know I do, at least until after the picture, but with serials like this, it’s really hard to avoid.

Take a deep breath, we’re going in, and watch your step, it’s muddy as fuck out there.

So, we open to Wren being paraded from her sparse but spotless little apartment to the pipeworks. Caspian doesn’t want to have to wade through the mud to fuck her, so he’s taking her back to his base. All she’s allowed to take back is the stuff that Caspian, Kieran, and Toby brought to her house for her to nest in. She’s not allowed any of her own belongings. And, since none of the Alphas sign, she’s also mostly unable to communicate. If they give her pen and paper, she can write them notes, but other than that…

Caspian, Kieran, and Toby aren’t nice guys. Not nice guys at all. They think they are ddoing her a favor by putting her in “the big room”, which is where they keep the Omega of the moment until she falls from favor. Then, the Omega ends up in the pens where they are meat for anyone.

Not only are these guys not nice, they are fucking brutal. I mean, Caspian wears a coat made out of people, FFS. But Wren is going to do what she agreed to do, for her boys. She will do anything to keep them safe, even sell herself to the 3 worst Alphas around. She’s under no illusions that any of what’s going to happen is going to be good or nice. I feel so sorry for Wren. She’s doing what a mother is supposed to do, but even so, it’s pretty horrible to have to do it. They’ve already done terrible things to her, they will probably do even more now that they have her under their noses all the time.

I’m not joking about being soul destroying. A lot of what Addison writes will rip into your soul, but this one, OMFG, whatever little soul I had left is now totally destroyed. I think she eats the souls for breakfast and chases them with the tears of her readers. It was also so good. I couldn’t put the book down, and I may need to reread it, right now. How soon is too soon to reread? I dunno. But, it may be the only way I can survive until the next one.

OK, now we know why Caspian doesn’t want Troy to go at Wren immediately. That’s just… I want to say fucking horrifying, but I’m not sure that horrifying is the right word for it. Is there something beyond horrifying? Who would want to do that to themselves? I don’t even have the right equipment, and what Toby did to himself hurt me. As for Wren, I can’t imagine it from her side. I don’t want to imagine it from her side.

I can’t wait to see how the two biggest bits of action are going to affect the rest of the series. There’s going to be a lot to unpack there, and I’m pretty sure that Addison isn’t going to be able to fucking redeem these guys. None of them are a Shepherd.

That’s all I have to say about this one. Really, if you like noncon, Omegaverse, dark af, twisted, and soul destroying, and lots of fucking you need to go get this one. Happy reading?

Addison Cain-The Golden Line

So, a while back, Addison Cain wrote a short story called Consumed. It was in an anthology (don’t go look for it, it’s not for sale on Amazon anymore). When Addison got the rights to the story back, she turned it into The Golden Line. It’s a dark Omegaverse story. It is not related to the Alpha’s Claim books or the Wren’s Song books. It’s a brand new Omegaverse ‘verse. I believe it’s called the Knotted series. Addison promised it to us in August, and she dropped it as a surprise and barely made it in August. But, it was worth every second of the wait and every single tease that Addison put out. And damn me, if she didn’t tease the fuck out of everyone. She bragged about how Simin flirted with Morgaine, but didn’t tell us how. She just gloated about how good it was. A lot. She’s a sadist. But that’s OK, I’m pretty damn sure that I’m a masochist, at least when it comes to Addison Cain and her books.

Morgaine is a simple young woman who lives in a village with her mother. Her mother is a seamstress and Morgaine helps with dyeing the cloth and doing things like beautiful needlework, as well as the gardening and suchlike. But every now and again, the Alphas come to raid the village. They take the best of everything, and occasionally take people too. Morgaine always has a warning that they are coming. She starts to hurt and ends up nearly paralyzed. On the day that the Alphas come to her village, she barely makes it into hiding in time. When she comes back out, after heating the Alphas leave, it turns out that not all of them have left. Esin is there, and he’s threatening her mother. In order to keep her mother safe, Morgaine goes with him. That’s when she finds out she’s an Omega, and exactly what Esin and his comrades think that an Omega is. Even the ones that have an Omega mate treat the Omegas poorly. When the Commander doesn’t like the way that Morgaine is behaving he orders her caned. The next day, Simin comes.

Simin is a barbarian, at least that’s what those “civilized” Alphas would like to believe, but the first time he sees Morgaine, he knows that she is his. His Omega, his love, and his soulmate. Of course, it takes him some time to calm down after he sees what’s been done to her. Esin and all those Alphas tell her how Simin is going to rape her and kill her and all sorts of terrible things. So when Morgaine is handed off to him, she’s terrified. It doesn’t help that she and Simin don’t share a common language. All she knows is what Esin and the others have trained and forced her into. But Simin isn’t like them.

For a very, very long time, since back when I first read the Alpha’s Claim books which were my very first Omegaverse books, Shepherd has been my favorite Alpha. He’s one of my top 3 book boyfriends. Shepherd has now got some serious competition. Simin is pretty fucking awesome. He’s different to Shepherd, but the ‘verse is different too, and their ranking and background is different. Addison puts it as a dark read, and it is that, but it’s not completely dark all the way through. I’m going to guess that it won’t stay that way though. I’ve read too many Addison Cain books *cough*all of them*cough* to know that she’s going to move into something light and squishy. She writes dark and sticky instead. Dark and very, very sticky, with lots and lots of fluids. I like Morgaine. She’s got guts. Simin is a very interesting character and I like him a lot. And he really does flirt with Morgaine in an interesting way.

I love how the title turned from Consumed to The Golden Line and even more, why it turned from Consumed to The Golden Line, or at least why I think it did. The short was a lot more about what Esin et al did to Morgaine, which really was consuming her, while Simin was much more about that golden line and what it represented, not necessarily to him, but to Morgaine. It showed his priority and how Omegas are valued in his culture.

I love this book, just as I love everything that Addison writes, but this one gets to me in a different way than the other Omegaverse books do. In a totally good way. Go check it out and tell me what you think. Happy reading!

Addison Cain-Branded Captive

Addison Cain was my first experience with Omegaverse stories, whether they were Mf or Mm. Now I read a lot of them. So, when I heard about Branded Captive, you know that I was first in line to get it. I might have had to cut a bitch to get it. Or maybe I just begged. I don’t remember. I’ve slept since then. What I haven’t forgotten is just how filthy and obscene this one is. It is sooooo wrong. So, very, very, very wrong, and yet so very, very, very right. And did I mention filthy and hot? I just want to make sure that you know that. And since it’s an Addison book, you know that it’s dark.

Wren is a Deaf Omega. Her parents have kept her pure and innocent. Her mother didn’t tell her anything about what she needed to know. So when her father sells her virginity to a big Alpha and she doesn’t meet his needs, because she doesn’t know what to do, she ends up being branded as defective and thrown away and ends up in the Warren, but not before the Alpha caused her even more pain by ripping his knot out of her.

Five years later, she’s managed to build some kind of life for herself. She has rooms that she keeps scrupulously clean and two boys who were also abandoned that she has adopted as her own. As an Omega, she’s driven by her instincts to nest and have a family, so that’s what she’s done. But when her boys disappear, she worries that she has lost them to Caspian and his syndicate. So she decides to go get them, even though she wants to stay away from Caspian. Alphas are bad and hurt people and the ones in the Warrens are even worse.

Caspian is not a nice dude. His second is Kieran and his third is Toby. They are all very not nice men. Even when they do nice things. Caspian controls everything in the Warrens and a good chunk of what’s going on above too. He wears a coat that is reputed to be made out of human skin, and I’m more than willing to believe it. When he sees what he thinks is a skinny man dragging one kid out of his area by his ear while carrying another one, he has to know what’s going on. That’s when he finds out that it’s not a skinny man, it’s a beautiful Omega.

I’m not sure if I hate Caspian or love him. He’s cruel and brutal, pragmatic and straight forward. If he wants, he takes. He wants Wren. He’s going to take her. He’s also going to share her when he wants, with Kieran and Toby. It doesn’t matter what Wren wants at this point. She’s going to have to just deal with whatever Caspian wants to do and suck it up. This is dark, it’s gritty, it’s filthy, and it’s Wren’s new life. There isn’t a whole lot of good and happy going on right now in her life, and frankly, I don’t know that there will be. However, I’m going to reread this book a lot and when the next ones in the series come out, I’ll read those too. I need more of this story and I need it soon. And I really hope that Caspian kicks that other Alpha’s ass up one side and down the other.

Toby gives me the creeps. I’m not too proud to admit it. Caspian is pretty straight forward I think. Kieran may be a little softer than the other two, for all that he’s the second strongest Alpha, but I think that Toby is as bent as a pretzel. I don’t trust him around Wren.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one. I cannot recommend it enough, so go check it out! Happy reading!

And hey, if you really like me and think that I’m a pretty awesome blog/blogger, can you pretty please go over to this FB event and vote for me? I’ve been nominated for fave blogger, and if I’m in the top 5, I get to move to the next round. I promise, I’ll love you forever.

Stolen-Too Hot For Barnes and Noble

OK, so tomorrow is release date for Stolen by Addison Cain. I love this book so hard. Just so hard. I love Shepard and Claire from Alpha’s Claim, who are continuing into Alpha’s Control, which Stolen is the first book of.  (Crazy awkward sentence, right?) I love Brenya, the new Omega heroine, and really, really, really hate Jacques. Addison will have to do a lot of rehab on him for me to come even close to liking him, and I’m just betting that she won’t. I’ve read her books before.

Anyway, Stolen was banned at B&N. Totally shocking, considering some of the stuff that they have let through. Addison Cain is running a giveaway with a $100 Visa gift card as the big prize. Imagine how many books you can get for $100!

While you are waiting for the 26th and Stolen to drop, why not go check out my review, just to whet your whistle?

Addison Cain-Stolen

Because Addison Cain and her PA, Courtney McDaniel, love me, or at least like me somewhat, and I have my awesome blog, I was able to get my hands on an ARC of Stolen really early! And now, I get to share bits and pieces of it with you! Stolen is currently available for pre-order and comes out on the 26th. If you loved the Alpha’s Claim series, you need to read this book, the first one in the Alpha’s Control series.

Seriously though, I adore the entire Alpha’s Claim series so hard. I have read it over and over and over, and can discuss it for hours. I think the series is one of the best things I’ve read, indie author, romance author, mainstream author, whoever, one of the best, hands down. Reborn is my favorite of that series. Stolen eclipses it. Addison really hit it out of the ball park. I may have called Addison evil and sadistic when I was finished reading it. I definitely cried. And then I was sad because I had finished it and had already had that brand new book feeling happen and the adrenaline let down from looking forward to it and reading it. I had all the feelz, and I think the book created more feelz just so that I could have them. I can’t wait for the next one, which will be sometime next year since Addison is finishing up a personal exapansion project.

There are going to be spoilers. I will do everything I can to keep them to a minimum, but they are going to happen. I will put anything big after a pretty picture, just for added protection. If you want to stay completely unspoiled, this is the place for you to stop. Fair warning. Go past this point, you may regret it.
