Peep Show by Isabella Starling

36433506.jpg

Synopsis

She’s stripping.
I’m watching.
She’s playing.
I’m watching.
She’s mine, I’m coming…

Bebe Hall is a heartbreaker. She’s the it girl of the moment, a partygirl nobody can stop in her path of self destruction. Bebe Hall isn’t the star of her own story.
She’s the star of mine.
My name is Miles O’Reilly. I’m a photographer. An agoraphobic. A millionaire. A womanizer. I’m confined to my apartment. I don’t leave. Ever.
But when she sees me with my latest online conquest in the window of my apartment, my attention shifts to Bebe.
And once I see something I want, I don’t give up until it’s mine.
Forever.

Peep Show is a 90,000 word novel with themes of voyeurism and dark scenes that may be upsetting to readers. If you are brave enough, come meet Miles. He’s been waiting for you.

Review

Although Isabella Starling has been on my interest list for a while, with Pet taking up a place in a very particular collection on my Kindle, this is actually the first time I’ve ever read her work—largely due to her association with one of my all-time favourite erotica authors, Jade West.

Now, I need to go back and purchase Starling’s entire back catalogue.

For those interested in reading gritty, taboo sex, you’ll want to dust off your vibrator and not load this book on your Kindle until it’s fully charged. Because those batteries willdie before you reach the end.

Not only was I thoroughly impressed with Starling’s writing (both the sensitive, emotional, vulnerable moments and the filthy, stuff-my-knickers-in-my-mouth-and-stick-a-finger-up-my-arse parts), but I actually could not put my Kindle down for the duration of this book. I carried it with me everywhere. I read it on my lunchbreak at work (big mistake, by the way), before I went to bed…in the bath…just everywhere. It feels like it’s been a while since I came across a book that consumed me in such a way. It was raw, decadent, dark, and dirty.

I am absolutely in love with Miles, the perfect combination of male dominance and vulnerability. And what was so good about this read was how Starling made it deeper than pure filth. There was a lot here to think about, a lot of pain to feel. It’s a good author who manages to perfect that balance. There was enough of a plot to not dismiss this as ‘just erotica’, enough of a believable connection between the characters to consider it the most romantic of romances. There wasn’t too much sex, and there wasn’t too much outside plot. It was brilliant.

Starling is certainly one to watch. Like Jade West, she is bringing a new meaning to erotica: both in the no-holds-barred narration and the ability to weave a deep, intriguing story. I’m looking forward to her future releases.

REVIEW: Pet by Isabella Starling

Beautiful and intense ..,

What a beautifully and sympathetically written taboo romance….Sapphire is a young, flirty and smart mouthed restless soul… into her aimless existence comes King who will forever shape and change the direction of her life…..this is a gloriously twisted erotic story with more than one dirty, sexy alpha male and a slutty, stubborn minx…but as the story unfolds secrets begin to emerge and suddenly this simple tale is not so simple anymore….

I was enthralled by this book and by the wonderfully described complex characters and the world which they inhabit….this story is one big mind-game (Amazon will not allow a more apt description) King is so deliciously wicked and perverse and there were several occasions when I really wanted to spank his bottom he made me so mad…then there is the waif-like, damaged Sapphire who has fallen into King’s protective clutches..she is so many contradictions..at times she annoyed and frustrated me but conversely she made my heart break an innocent victim of other peoples perversions and indifference…and then again there are times when she is the one in control and in charge…

There are intense scenes, dark themes and angst but additionally there is the security blanket of tenderness, humour and a twisted kind of love by way of aftercare …the author states that this book was written for herself and I get that…something so emotionally charged so filled with despair and joy and all the feelings that exist in between has to have come from the heart but thankfully she has shared it with the reader and so I shall take this gift and even though I have turned the last page I shall treasure it for a long time to come…thank you so very much..you broke my heart and put it back together again… I received a copy of this book as an ARC from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review…

Release Date- 25th June,2016

DARK BLOOD runs through her veins,
and the beast is on her trail…

 

For the first time in her life, Bianca Da Costa feels free, even when she is bound by chains. Kidnapped from under her mobster daddy’s nose, she has no way of escaping the Hound – the Abbate crime family’s most vicious hitman.
But maybe she doesn’t want to escape. Maybe her savior is the dark beast himself… And to face him, Bianca will have to look right into the eyes of the monster.

 

Matteo Salini is trained to kill. Pumped with drugs and used to blood, he doesn’t expect to flinch when he has to take Bianca’s life. She’s beautiful – there is no doubt in that.
But Matteo has women servicing him left and right, and he doesn’t need a spoiled mafia princess to screw with his head. Bianca is much more than that, though, and her tenderness finds its way under Matteo’s rough skin. She might be his only chance of redemption.

 

She’s his prisoner, he’s her savior.

 

WARNING! Dark romantic themes included. If you don’t like your bad boys BAD, look the other way!
