#Review “Scavenger (Dark Day Isle, The Ultimate Kink Resort Book 2)” by A.C. Melody

cover

5/5 Stars!

Day 2 at Dark Day Isle hits the ground running!

Felix and Tessa are still working out the dynamics of their D/s relationship which means drama time!

First, they must deal with what Tessa overheard in the conversation between Felix and Louis. She has serious doubts and reservations, and I can’t blame her. No one wants to be second best or a replacement… period! Doesn’t matter the lifestyle or relationship.

Felix went a long way to assuage her doubts, but not far enough for me. The man protesteth a bit too much for me which can only mean…he’s hiding something!

Don’t worry, I still love you, Felix!

Tessa’s a bit off balance but holding her own. I like that her internal thoughts are never too far from what she actually says. Same goes for Felix.

These two have to build a foundation of trust within the six remaining days in order for them both to get the benefit of their time together.

Why the trust?

Because the kink factor is off the charts! (HA!)

Felix went over Tessa’s personal file even before the auction and knows what her hard limits are.

And maaaan! Does he push that envelope?! And Tessa loves it.

Which is why I enjoy this author’s books so much… because I KNOW Tessa. Her thoughts and feelings are conveyed in such a manner that I already KNOW how she’s going to react when Felix introduces a new kink.

Felix is also well-written in that his thoughts are dominant and male, not simply what a woman would want a man to think or say.

You don’t need to be knowledgeable in Power Exchange to enjoy Scavenger. This author weaves explanations through dialogue and thoughts with such subtleness, you don’t even realize you’re being schooled. I don’t necessarily need to know the why behind what drives their needs, just that that it’s all well thought out and consensual.

New characters are introduced in Scavenger and more is learned about Louis. Taber’s a hoot! Domme Alise Moreau slithers into the mix and I dislike her as much as Tessa does.

I like that Felix typed up a contract, no matter that it was a short list. Tessa had never been in a D/s situation without one and it made her feel more secure. She’s open and honest to a fault. Can Felix reciprocate? Time for some revelations, confessions and epiphanies!

Bring on book 3!

Enjoy!

~~~~~

It’s day two of the exclusive getaway on Dark Day Isle, and Felix’s smoldering lust isn’t the only thing to greet Tessa come morning. A list of challenges awaits her; finding the courage to confront her Master, devious tests of kink designed to push her limits and an unpleasant punishment that effects more than just their temporary dynamic.

Afternoon events provide insight on the getaway’s purpose and leads them deeper into the resort’s naughty, fetish-catering amenities. Tessa and Felix’s individual struggles are interspersed with visiting friends, unexpected triggers and a meeting of competitive spirits during the evening’s activity.

When Tessa’s true feelings about the cage are revealed, so is one of Felix’s well-guarded secrets that leaves her stunned. Now, Master expects to learn something from her in return and Tessa dreads what he might deem an even exchange for a truth he never wanted her to know.

about author

A.C. Melody is a hybrid author of Erotic Romance and all its savory sub-genres. Confessed javaholic, introverted geeky girl with a twisted sense of humor and a wretched muse. She has a weakness for hard ass Alphas and the strong women who capture their hearts, without damaging their rough edges.

A lifetime lover of fairy tales, myths, legends and ancient pantheons, A.C. spends more time researching than writing. Her biggest goal is to provide new, captivating angles on old, favorite tales with enticing twists and characters that redefine preset expectations.

She’s 100% guilty of placing all her money on the underdogs, anti-heroes and shameless whores. When A.C. isn’t writing, being mom or doing the day-job gig, you can catch her gaming, binge-watching Netflix or anxiously awaiting the new superhero movie (specifically, Deadpool 2). A.C. loves to hear from her readers and can be found at any of the following sites:

Author Bio Virginia Heath

When Virginia Heath was a little girl it took her ages to fall asleep, so she made up stories in her head to help pass the time while she was staring at the ceiling. As she got older, the stories became more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace the insomnia and start writing them down. Fortunately, the lovely people at Harlequin Mills & Boon took pity on her and decided to publish her romances, but it still takes her forever to fall asleep.
