This book was part of a blog tour I was given a copy for my honest review Charlie is a gifted art student with an innate sensuality, her past has left her scarred and she can't love but she needs physical contact. This need leads her down a dangerous road with a mysterious madam; at first everything is great until she meets Cameron. Cameron changes Charlie and as the two of them really begin to connect, she discovers horrible secrets at her work that change everything. This book is dark and raw with a razor sharp erotic edge to it. Charlie starts out closed off with her emotions only really shown to people through her artwork, through out the book her hard outer shell begins to crack. I really have no words to accurately describe how wonderful this book is. The first pages draw you in and the rest of the book holds your attention until the very end. I loved this book, it takes a lot of talent and skill to create the detailed scenes this author did without it becoming too much or too little. This book is not one that every person will enjoy or understand, but it is one that everyone should at least try to read.

Seductive Shadows is a gritty and provocative story of one girl's journey of self discovery. Written in the first person narrative, author Marni Mann weaves an enticing, dark, and emotional tale that delves into the life of Charlie, a twenty-three year old art student. Charlie has had a troubled life, through her passion for art, she tries to escape her abusive past with a neglectful and alcoholic mother, and the memory of a tragic accident that occurred five years ago, but the past still haunts her, leaving her scarred and unable to love. Charlie uses art as a way to channel her emotions and sexual acts as a way to forget her past. Charlie accepts a position in a high class brothel that allows her to hide behind a mask as Cee, her alter-ego that enables her to leave Charlie behind. When she meets a fellow artist named Cameron, she finds someone who she can trust and love. Cameron encourages Charlie to take the journey toward self-discovery in order to move forward with her life. Seductive Shadows is so much more than an erotic tale, it is a riveting story that takes the reader to a deeper and emotional level as it delves into a flawed person's journey to come out of the recesses of her dark shadowy past and into the light in search of herself. The author does a wonderful job of creating layers upon layers within this story, alternating between flashbacks to the past with the present, she entices the reader with intriguing twists and turns as each of the layers are uncovered. You can't help but feel for Charlie as her story unfolds. From her troubled life with her mother, to the tragedy and loss of her best friend, to the choices she has made in her life, it is easy for the reader to relate and understand Charlie, feel her pain, and cheer as her journey leads her towards self-discovery and moving forward in her life. This story deserves to have a sequel, it's open-ended and surprising conclusion leaves the reader wanting more. I would love to be able to continue to follow Charlie and Cameron's story, I know they have more to tell the readers. Seductive Shadows is a thrilling and provocative story, it is captivating and thought-provoking, it is simply a must read.

This is one of those novels that is extremely intense from the get-go, stays that way throughout, but where the intensity in subtle.  Mann draws you in and keeps your emotions and thoughts embroiled in this novel throughout.  Your emotions get so tangled up in this story that it feels like you’re living it yourself.  The storyline is somewhat off the wall yet the premise is extremely captivating.  It’s also extremely scary in its possibilities.  The knowledge that this type of thing really can and does happen adds to the intensity of the story. Everything in this novel is presented very naturally but in minute detail.  The dark undertones that let light and hope shine through really allow you to understand the characters, their plights, and their emotional states.  Mann very subtlety tackles some very tough subjects.   Through her play on light and dark she really sets a specific tone that you can’t escape. The main characters in this novel are quite well developed.  You get to know where they came from, why they are who they are today, and what they think and feel about that.  They are a perfectly matched pair who contrast each other just enough to remain separate entities while becoming a strong couple.  The supporting characters fill out the story nicely.  Some are very well developed as friends and family.  Others remain mysterious to the reader and to the characters themselves. Overall, this is an extremely vivid and exciting story that I couldn’t put down.   Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

From the word, GO, Marni had me captivated and riveted to the story. You can't help but to be sucked in by Charlie's circumstances. You want so badly for her to find a good life. Then, there's the "Offer". What a web that entangled! There is something bizarre and secretive brewing and I found myself having a hard time putting the book down. I needed to know what was going to happen next! You get to watch Charlie's character go from lost and lonely to the possibility of a decent life. But there's always consequences for the decisions you make.... Now, I'm on pins and needles waiting for the next book.

There are several longer reviews so I will keep mine short. The book started slow for me but it got much better. It does end before you know the ending so now I can not wait for the next book.
