Matteo is a dark and difficult read that I just couldn't put down. It elicited so many emotions from me as most of the time the story was brutal and heart wrenching. Gia was raised by a madame who trained and sold women into slavery. When Matteo came to shop forced by his father to conform, Gia was offered up. Her beauty and innocence called to him and he bought her. For most of the story she lives with his brutality as he takes from her and rarely is gives any kindness. She doesn't understand because at first he was kind. Well at least more so that the mother who raised her. Then things changed in a moment. She finds out that he became cruel because of his father who was threatening her. I so wanted someone to come and rescue Gia. My heart broke for all that she suffered. I can't say that I enjoyed this book, but more that I appreciated the author shedding light on such a horrific topic. I was glad to see that she also included statistics and facts about sexual slavery at the end.
I give Matteo 4 hearts!
I give Matteo 4 hearts!
Being born into slavery, I never thought my owner, my very mother, would sell me. And she didn’t.
I was tormented, struggling to come to terms with my new life then he narrowed it down to two things.
The man confused me at every turn with his unexpected and unattainable desires.
If only he’d speak to me.
If only he’d tell me how to avoid upsetting him.
If only I could please him.

Mother by day. Writer by night. I spend a majority of my day with my children and reading while my nights are filled with the sound of the keyboard as I work on my next work.
I have written in nearly every LBGT category as well as the traditional erotic romance category.
I love to try new things and learn from every piece of work I write. I'll write just about anything once to learn from it. I've even ventured out of my normal erotica genre into Monster Erotica. Doubt you'll find me writing anything not erotic as you can barely get me to even read something out of that category, but then again, you never know what I might try next.
Never stop learning. Try everything at least once.
