Review: Deliverance For Amelia

Deliverance for Amelia
Bonny Capps
Genre: Dark Erotica
Release Date: 5 June 2015



What would you do if the devil held you captive? Would you fight, or play along with his wicked games?

My entire life I've lived in my father's shadow. As the Mayor's daughter, I'm expected to maintain a pristine reputation. Everything must be perfect. My days of tutors and piano lessons may be behind me, but the need to be my father's perfect daughter still rings true.
However, I'm in college now - so why not have a little fun? It started out that way, anyway. When I decided to go to a party with my new friend Meg, I thought my college days were just beginning. My boring little life was finally getting the shakeup that it desperately needed. Little did I know, I would become the captive of the devil himself.
He says that I'm his. He calls himself my master.

Well, well - Mr. Mayor couldn't pay up. I can't say that I'm surprised. The greedy bastard is more concerned about pocketing all that money masked as charity rather than paying his debts.I'm not a debt that you want to forget. I did, after all, kill that poor journalist that was putting his nose where it didn't belong. Not saying that I minded - no, not one bit. It's a high. Watching them writhe in pain, their bodies seizing up as every last drop of hope is drained from their wide eyes. I live for it - the thrill of killing. Not to mention it keeps my wallet nice and plump. My clients know when they say they'll pay - they better pay. Otherwise, I take what I want from them. In most cases, the result is their own blood on my hands. Not this time though.
This time I wanted her, and I always get what I want.

This is a full-length standalone novel.


If he wants me to give him the okay to touch me... pleasure me... I can't. I can't, but dammit, my mind is screaming.
I feel the warmth spread through me as my body recognizes the impending orgasm.
What would I be if I told him yes? Weak? Disgusting? I hate this ping-pong match occurring with my conscience.
"You want this, Amelia. Don't deny it." He says casually as he stops all movement.
Tears begin to leak from my eyes once more, because I know that I'm going to give in eventually, because my damned body loves nothing more than to betray me.
So, I do. I can't continue to let him torment me in this way. He wants me to submit? I will, selfishly . I will pretend that he's my lover. Not my captor.
"Yes." I rasp.
"What was that?" He asks.
"Yes, Master." I whisper

My Review

I made the mistake of starting this book at about 11:30 PM, telling myself just half an hour of reading to start the book and I'll go to bed.  It was so intense that I couldn't stop and I read until 3 AM to finish it.  Then up another half an hour sorting through my feelings that was stirred up.  I haven't had a favorite book of 2015 picked out yet but this is without a doubt THAT book!!!  In all of it's ugly crying, emotional upheaval glory that is this unforgettable book of a woman who found herself in unbelievable circumstances being all kinds of abused and tortured by her kidnapper.  
Gabe is the devil and Amelia has never had the opportunity to fend for herself due to her sheltered upbringing.  She gets herself in a vulnerable position leaving her open to an attack by the devil and the devil never disappoints.  Will she get out alive?

The author didn't make all her characters lovable.  They are dark, disturbing and severely fucked up!  True to life characters and possibly true to life circumstances are what makes this story shine at the same time making it darker than anything I've ever read.   Yes, the darkest!  You have been warned.  The author warns you too, multiple times so please heed the warnings before buying the book.  If you don't think you can deal with super graphic material then don't purchase it.  
If you dare, you will read one hell of a well written book!

I received a complimentary copy of this title for review purposes.

Author Bio

I've been labelled many things: eccentric, a hippie, a lover, a fighter... But most importantly a mother first, a wife second and a writer third.
I was originally born and raised in Texas. I currently do not have a set home. For me, home is where you lie your head - the next location unknown. Seven months ago, my two boys and I decided to hop on the semi with the hubby and travel the United States. The experience has been liberating.
Writing is my heart and soul. I started writing poetry when I was a kid. It was a great outlet for me. I went through a lot in my younger years, and when I decided to give writing a shot, it came naturally. In fact, when I was upset I would write letters to others because the words could never escape my tongue. I found that the thoughts swirling in my mind would spill onto paper, and honestly - writing saved my life.
I didn't think writing a novel was a possibility. I tried for years and could never get past the 2nd paragraph. So, in turn, I stopped writing all together - for years.
I fell into a hopeless call center job and my soul felt drained. One day, on my way to said job an idea spilled into the forefront of my mind. Her name was Mandy, and she was screaming for attention. I couldn't ignore her, so I parked my car and starting writing her story. Six months later, "The Boy in the Mirror" was born. Characters started clawing their way from the depths of my mind after that, and I thought - wow, this is it. This is where I belong. This is my calling.
I love adding a magical element to my stories. Where things may seem hopeless, there's so much more than what meets the eye. Magic comes in so many different forms, but most importantly, you can find magic in the goodness of humanity. My stories focus on different issues that we all may face in our lives. I love writing about characters who are crippled, but they find a way to overcome their dilemmas.
I write young adult, new adult, erotica, horror, dark... I write what comes to me. The stories that scream to be written - they find a way on paper. It is my honor to bring these characters to you and their stories.

The Espionage Effect - The Blindfold Pic Quote


“Do you remember their love?” An odd question, even to my ears, but I needed to know. He didn’t reply right away, only briefly paused, then continued typing. I didn’t release the photograph. Didn’t turn around. Entranced to a level I couldn’t resist or deny, I remained rooted to the spot on his bamboo office floor, clinging to a fragment of someone else’s joyous life, stuck in my admiration for those who’d been able to defy the choking darkness of the world for its breath of light. The keyboard clicking ended entirely. But I barely noticed. My heart pounded in my ears as I gripped the frame, thumbs slipped into place on the perfect silver surface. My fingerprints might as well have marred the perfect picture. Its image marked me. Indelibly. How had one two-dimensional image branded my heart so fast? On a shaky exhale, it hit me. It hadn’t. The delicate aging photograph hadn’t been the one thing, it had been the last thing, the proverbial straw on the camel’s back—the catalyst to the fractures spider-webbing through an armored façade I’d so carefully constructed finally shattering apart, blowing to dust the once impenetrable fortress walls I’d imprisoned myself within. “I remember.” His voice slid over my senses, warm and soft. His heat came up behind me, wrapping around me as his strong hands ran down my arms, then covered my hands as they still clutched the frame. For the first time in my life, I finally stood without my armor. Terrified, yet convinced I needed to take the leap of faith even if I died from the fall, I leaned back into his strength. And he held me. As I began to shake, gripped the frame tighter for fear of dropping it, he simply held me. “Their laughter is the greatest memory; I can still hear its echo in my head, feel its presence in the middle of the night.” An aching pang thumped from behind my ribcage. That he would be lonely in the darkness too, seek the memory of what he’d once had to lull him to sleep. I’d done the opposite. “I can’t remember mine.” My voice croaked. Hands trembling uncontrollably, I clattered the bottom metal corners of the frame down onto the perfectly polished surface before I dropped it. “Their love, I mean.” I sucked in a ragged breath as my arms drew against my middle. I hugged myself, trying to hold in the pain that I’d never let myself feel. His arms followed, covering mine. A cramp burned at the base of my throat, and I closed my eyes, pinching back hot tears, afraid of losing myself to the scathing onslaught of feelings. As my breathing grew shallow, Alec tightened his hold, wordlessly providing his protection from the unseen threat.

Blog Tour: Never Forgotten Love by S.M. Stryker

Title: Never Forgotten Love
Series: A Second Chances #1
Author: S.M. Stryker
Genre: Erotica/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 13, 2015

In this mature romance about lost loves, best friends and second chances author S.M. Stryker brings you the first installment of the Second Chances Series. 

Beckett was smaller than most boys his age growing up. This caused him to have little to no self-esteem while faced with the physical abuse he endured at the hands of his mother. 

His best friend Harlow, who’s not only beautiful, but tough as nails has been there for him since first grade. 

Unforeseen circumstances separated them with promises of always keeping in touch. Reminders of a friendship left behind, possessions taken away only lead to a friendship that was once the center of Beckett’s world. 

Ten years later, Beckett has the confidence and self-esteem to search for Harlow. The only problem is; she’s off the grid. Every day he thinks of her, every decision he’s made; has been with for her.

Could you ever believe in second chances? Have you ever wanted something so bad that when it was gone you never forgot it? You longed for it, everything you do was in preparation to have it again, and this time you won't let it go. You would do anything to protect it.
I kissed Harlow on the cheek, wiped away the tears that were falling and I leaned in close to her ear inhaling her floral fragrance that was all Harlow one last time trying to imprint it in my mind, and then I whispered in her ear, "I love you."

I'm not running from something, I'm running to someone. God, Beckett, don't you see, you're my lifeline; I'm not running from you, I running to you."

"This was the place where I fell in love with you Harlow, and even though I had a lot of bad memories here, I had the best memories here too. Memories of when we would sit on the swings and talk about the future when times were innocent, what do you want now Harlow? What are your dreams for the future?"

"You have infiltrated me completely, you make me feel alive Harlow, and I love that feeling. I have had my heart walled off for so long, and you have melted it so I can feel again."

Shelly (SM) married her husband 28 years ago and has four daughters and two grandchildren. 

She always knew, her life would make a good story...or soap opera but finding or making the time to write was always the issue. 

In April of 2014, she sat down in front of her computer and started to write. Through lots of tears, she wrote her first book that had a large part of her life in the story, that book was Stolen Innocence.

Now she finds that she has to write, this is her outlet, her sanctuary, and in every book she writes there’s always part of her life written into it.
