Her Father sold her to me to clear his debt.
It sickens me but I accept her as payment because I see the lust for me in her eyes. How she wants her hands caressing my rugged face and ripped body.
She tries to hide it but she can't. And I can't stop thinking about what I'll be doing to her.
Making that virgin body quiver with the numbness of pleasure. She has no idea the depths of my depravity.
But it won't be just me.
Oh, no. That would be too easy. I have a partner who was also wronged by her father.
Together, we need to decide whether we keep her.
Or sell her.
It's a twisted question - give in to love and keep her, or, punish her parents and sell her on The Market?
We both know that the innocent and fragile Sarah Carlton is the sweetest thing that has crossed our paths in a long, long time.
We also know that we're going to savor that sweetness as we break her, no matter what we decide...
**Come enter a world of dark desires in this full-length standalone romance by Dark Angel. No cheating or cliffhangers but it's going to contain very mature themes with potentially dark undertones as well as scenes of MF and MFM. HEA? Always.**
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Title: The Virgin Market
Author: Dark Angel
Dark Angel's The Virgin Market is the first novel i've read by this author - i'm still trying to figure out if this is an author duo or not, but at the same time, it's wasn't that important as i kept on reading the book. It had a great premise, i was hooked from the very beginning, curious to find out what exactly was to happen to Sarah after her father owes so much to Damien after stealing from him. The suspense of how she ends up on the Virgin Market is something that had me hooked - her fears, her desires and her wants are clear as day as Dark Angel writes her story, and trust me, you can't help but be captivated. I wanted to know more about who Damien and Trevor are and what their intentions are.
I liked how the anticipation builds up as you keep reading: what will happen to Sarah's future? Will she be sold to the Virgin Market? Who will be the ultimate buyer? Will there ever be any reconciliation between Sarah and her parents? But i think i was a bit disappointed when the situation resolved itself in less than two sentences. For about 70%+ of the book, everything built up to that one moment that is first introduced at the beginning, and then all of a sudden it's over. Understandably, there has to be more than that one moment at the Virgin Market, but it felt almost anti climactic. And then there is the lovey-dovey moments that you wouldn't expect considering what's happened so far. So while there were parts that didn't seem to flow with the rest of the book (and maybe that's just my personal opinion and nothing that matches anyone else's), i still enjoyed my first taste of what Alexis Angel/Dark Angel has to offer and for sure i'll be reading more from her in the future.
