Overview

She doesn’t remember her past, only her training. She can’t talk, not that a good slave should speak out of turn. None of that matters when she wakes up in the warm, rustic room. Her new master is distant but kind. There’s only one problem: he doesn’t want her.

Longing for the shackles of safety, she pulls from the last dregs of her will to prove her worth as a slave. It seems to be working. He responds first to her body and next to her submission. The secrets of his past haunt the cabin, fraying the tightening bond between Master and slave, but it is her own memories that may finally unravel it.

This book contains a bonus short story Escape, set in the same dark erotica world.

WARNING:
This book contains explicit scenes of sex, including dubious consent and captivity situations. The BDSM does not conform to literary conventions, making it sometimes more realistic, and other times not. This is a work of fiction not appropriate for anyone uncomfortable with these situations or anyone under the age of eighteen.

Praise for Trust in Me, the second book in the dark erotica series:

“Dark, disturbing, haunting, and beautiful, Skye Warren will take you into the depths of depravity but bring you home, safe in the end.”
- Kitty Thomas, author of The Last Girl

“Skye Warren is a true mistress of dark and twisted love stories.”
- Diana, The Forbidden Bookshelf

Night Owl Top Pick! “The author plays with metaphors and imagery in a prominent way to express Mia’s abuse at the hands the men in her life. This story was literally hard to put down.”
- Chinama, Night Owl Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - S Richards
From the story title to the striking imagery of Melody being an echo of one man's dark need and desire, HEAR ME has a smart and eloquent literary quality that stands out from page one.
Sam, E, and R's Awesomeness - Sam, E and R's Awesomness
It amazes me that this story packs such an emotional punch in a short amount of time.
Day Dreaming Reviews - Day Dreaming
This is a disturbingly arousing book I couldn't put down until the last page was turned... Skye Warren is a MASTER-ful writer when it comes to Dark Erotica!
Taboo Book Reviews
I think that the story line in HEAR ME is my favorite of the Dark Erotica series. There were many surprise twists and turns along the way. Just when I think I have it figured out, another layer is revealed. It makes you think, who can you really trust? How far would you go to survive, or to have what you truly desire? Fantastic ending too. 5-stars!

    Beautifully written dark erotica

    HEAR ME is the third enthralling tale in Skye Warren's Dark Erotica series. The first two books, KEEP ME SAFE and TRUST IN ME, were riveting reads that pushed even a die hard dark erotica fan like me outside my comfort zone. HEAR ME is possibly the lightest (most romantic, even?) of the three books, though no less powerful. Don't be fooled when I say "romantic." It's Ms. Warren's brand of love story - unsettling and unapologetic. Her writing is heavy on non-consent and S&M themes, so please consider the disclaimer before reading. HEAR ME begins with a frantic woman on the run from her cruel captors. After enduring months of forced sexual slave training on a remote island, she saw an opportunity to escape and took it. She can't speak and has no memory of her life before she was taken. She's rescued by a man she thinks is her new Master. She's so broken that she can't escape the slave mindset, so she offers him her subservience. He is kind to her, after all. But, he doesn't want her. His emotional scars are deep, and there's much about him that she should be wary of. I think that the story line in HEAR ME is my favorite of the Dark Erotica series. There were many surprise twists and turns along the way. Just when I think I have it figured out, another layer is revealed. It makes you think, who can you really trust? How far would you go to survive, or to have what you truly desire? Fantastic ending too. 5-stars!

    I struggle to decide where to start! I¿m very fenced about this

    I struggle to decide where to start! I’m very fenced about this story, because I like BDSM, but until this story, I didn’t realize that it was only to a point. The term “dark erotica” is no joke. It’s a very dark story involving hard core BDSM. Barring her captivity, there are several instances of questionable consent, yet they don’t cross the line and are surprisingly erotic. 

    While a great deal of this story is obviously physical, it’s also a very mental and emotional one. Her memories of her captivity, the bleakness of her future…it’s just so heartbreaking. It gets even more so when she finally realizes who she is, and what had happened. The woman’s journey of self-discovery and figuring out just what she wants is a powerful one.

    My few problems were that it sometimes felt more like a victim’s story than a romance, the details at the end were a little hard to follow, we never find out if the men that “trained” her are ever dealt with, and the subject of birth control never comes up at all which is surprising to me. In the big picture though, these things just don’t really end up mattering much.

    The bottom line is that while I’m not sure it was quite my cup of tea, Hear Me was still a strong story full of unforeseen twists, and has a satisfying ending.

    As posted on The Smutty Kitty reviewed by WittyKitty

    4.5 out of 5 Licks

    A slave has escaped her evil Masters and is found on a beach and taken in by a local carpenter (Sam). When the slave awakes she remembers nothing of her former self and has lost the ability to speak. She believes Sam is her new Master and tries to please him in every way. Sam has his own painful past and wants nothing to do with this slave girl no matter how tempting and believe me he is tempted. Will these two find the freedom and peace they are both searching for on this little island or has this slave just escaped one evil to be trapped anew.

    This dark erotica read, yes, there is some dubious consent had me hooked from page one and left me guessing and completely shocked till the end, which doesn’t happen often. If you are a fan of BDSM/erotic reads I would say this is a cannot miss. One minute I loved Sam and the slave (we later find out is named Melody) and the next minute I hated them, by the end I was totally stunned. This was my first read from Skye Warren and I look forward to many more.

    This book is extremely dark and will take a lot of readers to places that they don't want to go. I don't really know how I feel about it. It was a quick read and I couldn't put it down. I don't think I like how it ended. I don't know how I could say more without spoilers, so I'll leave it at that.

    Really Good Edgy Kink - 5 Star

    Heres to Melody and Sam finding what they want in each other. My only question is will he be able to keep her safe. THIS BOOK WAS THRILLING and leaves you with horror- filled excitement and the saying "be careful what you seek because you might find it". This is myfirst book from Skye and now she is an auto buy. Keep in mind this bookis not for you if you dont like edgy kink that goes beyond BDSM and anyone under age 21 I think without someone around to lend guidence

    Thrilling! Skye Warren is one of those authors that quickly mad

    Thrilling!

    Skye Warren is one of those authors that quickly made it to my favorites list. Her writing is dark and captivating, and it can haunt you long after the last page is turned. Her words have such beauty, she can make the scariest and ugliest thing seem precious.

    The first chapter jumps right into it. There is a woman who can’t speak. She can’t remember anything before her captivity, but she knows she is a slave – a sexual slave. It doesn’t take long before my heart is just breaking for her. I can’t even imagine what kind of things have to happen to someone to make them forget everything other than how to serve you.

    This book has some brutal situations in it. This woman isn’t just a submissive, she is a shell of a human. She has no choice to make for herself, no decision is her own. Kneeling with her nose to the ground is nothing but an everyday effort for her. And its taken over. This makes her feel safe. But now she has a new Master, and he is rewriting the rules. She feels safe. She feels cared for. But just as soon as you begin to feel that with her, just as soon as you exhale – BAM! Skye rips it all out from under you and you are floundering, wondering what is happening. How can this woman survive this??

    Right from the first page I was drawn into this story. It was exciting to see the slave struggle to discover who she is, while trying to learn about her new Master and his wants and needs. As the puzzle starts to come together, and new facts come to light, I was shocked over and over. To say that this story had surprises puts it lightly.

    If you like stories about power exchanges, dubious consent, some hot sex and BDSM, you will like this story. There is a heart here that has been broken by a series of people who took control of a young woman who got in over her head without even realizing it. And it cost her everything. But the question you are wondering throughout the story is will she make it or not? Will she be happy? And just who is she anyway? Well, I know. I read the story. Now its your turn, so hop to it!

    A new addition to my dark erotica author auto-buy list! Melod

    A new addition to my dark erotica author auto-buy list!



    Melody has escaped and is on the run from those who are pursuing her. But it’s unclear who those people are, and if she will ever really escape them. She is found by a man who seems kind, but does not appear to want her, at least not at first. What comes after may be related to what came before, but until Melody’s memories return, she won’t know who to trust.

    There isn’t much more that I can mention in this review without giving away the wonderful twists and turns found in Hear Me. It’s the third in a series but can be read as a stand-alone. I’m an avid fan of this sort of dark erotica, and it was great to discover another talented author in this genre which is so specialized, so difficult and so off-putting to the majority of readers. The author’s skill in putting us inside Melody’s head and letting us experience every detail as she does is especially precise without being ghoulish or disgusting. There aren’t many writers who can take on this genre and do it well, but Skye Warren is definitely one of them. She has found a place on my auto-buy list for dark erotica along with Kitty Thomas, Annabel Joseph and Claire Thompson. If this is your genre, she is a must-read.
