Review: Degradation (The Kane Trilogy, #1) by Stylo Fantome

 Publisher: Battleaxe Productions
Pub. Date: July 20, 2014
Genre: Dark Erotica
Source: Bought
Rating: 5


Eighteen year old Tatum O'Shea is a naive, shy, little rich girl. Twenty-three year old Jameson Kane is smart, seductive, and richer. They come together for one night, one explosion, one mistake, and Tate is hurled into space – no family, no money, and no Jameson.

Seven years later, life is going pretty good for Tate, when she runs into Jameson again. This time, she thinks she's ready for him. She doesn't have a naive bone left in her body, and she can't even remember what shy feels like. Jameson has evolved, as well – sharp words, sharper wit, and a tongue that can cut her in half. It all sounds like fun to a woman like Tate, and she is ready to play, determined to prove that she isn't the same girl he conquered once before. A series of games start, each one more devious than the last.

But as the line between games and reality becomes blurry, Tate quickly learns that Jameson has most definitely earned his nickname, “Satan”. Can she beat him at his own game before someone gets hurt? Or will he leave her soulless, making him the winner, once and for all?

WARNING: contains a wannabe B-rate porn star, an impersonal personal assistant, and the F-word, A LOT. Also graphic sexual situations and sadomasochistic themes. 

I feel so naughty after finishing this book. Degradation has everything I go against and hate. Kind of. It was degrading, hence the title of the story. And for some odd reason I COULDN'T STOP READING. Not even if I tried. How...why...what...I...I started liking the dirty talk; it was absolutely filthy. When and how could I like something that seems so abusive? I was amazed how engrossed I was in the book, I for sure thought it was your typical erotica novel. But I couldn't have been more wrong.

Tatum O'Shea is the good girl and younger sister to her beautiful older sister, Eloise. The day she stops by her apartment to drop some stuff off, she runs into Ellie's boyfriend, Jameson Kane. Kane has always treated Tate with indifference but when things start getting heated between the two, things change. Now Tate is cut off and disowned by her family and working odd and end jobs in Boston. One night she's working a party for the rich when she runs into Jameson. Though she doesn't know it's him at first.

Jameson is a big time lawyer and when he sees Tate, there's nothing he wants more than to f**k her in every way he can. Then starts a relationship based off sex and sex only. The sex is hot, rough, and down right nasty (in a good way.) Jameson and Tatum are cut from the same cloth...they both are animalistic when it comes to sexuality. Not only do they have sex with each other but other people as well. An open relationship of sorts - not that they are putting a label on anything of course.

It's all one big game to them. And a sexy ass game it is. I found myself getting a little hot and bothered more than once (yeah, sorry for the TMI). The writing had a way of pulling you in and not letting go. I didn't want to let go. The angst, the sex, the dirty talk...I loved it all. And yet it's still stuff I would never be comfortable with in real life. So kudos to the author for writing such a complex, sexy, and beautiful story. I definitely look forward to reading the rest of the series.

About the Author:
Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since ... forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball - I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair - both a curse and a blessing - and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
