Overview

"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 Comfort Food

Mia longs for the daily torture to end, but one last task keeps her holding on.

In a betrayal of the crime lord who pulled her from the gutter, she'll free the shipment of human cargo, and if she's lucky, die in the process. The alternative is unfathomable, even to a woman well-versed in erotic torture.

Then she meets the security expert in charge of the shipment--and finds herself face to face with her childhood crush.

The man she once begged for help. The man who failed her.

Tyler Martinez is an undercover FBI agent with one chance to right the wrongs of his past. Thrust deep into the seedy world of human trafficking, he must put aside his guilt over abandoning Mia all those years ago in order to save her now.

Someone's pulling the strings in this sadistic play on trust, but Tyler and Mia may not live long enough to see the curtain fall. Trust in Me is a story of erotic pain and incipient romance, spiraling ever faster toward betrayal or redemption.

Editorial Reviews

Lady Raven
"This is not your typical love story, but a story and a journey of a woman whose never known love. Skye Warren's dark erotica tale, it goes there, and pushes the reader in to a world that may not be for some readers, but strokes the curiosity of others as well."
Sam, E, and R's Awesomeness - Holly Leffler
"This book is definitely not for the faint of heart and as I said before, it feels wrong to say I enjoyed this book but the writing was fantastic. Any book that can pull such an emotional response from me in just 100 pages I have to say a big thank you to the author!"

Sad this kind of thing happens in real life. The story was sad and intense. It was also frustrating that the only therapy given at the end was retail therapy.

This book is not for the faint of heart. It does have non-consensual sex. The characters are very realistic and very flawed. It does have a HEA ending, but keeps you guessing through the entire story.

Although very graphic this story had lots of depth. Truly a great read.

I liked this book a lot. The hard path of Mia's life is a perfect support to the extremity of her feelings of worthlessness. In spite of her self-esteem issues, she has a core-deep strength that was utterly believable to me. The scenes were graphic and well-written, brutal without being melodramatic, allowing the characters to do the best they can with the situation they've been given. This book is absolutely not for sensitive readers or victims of violence.

Not for those faint of heart...but a really good read

This dark erotic fiction is the story of a woman completely at the mercy and the whims of the men around her. Every aspect of Mia's life is controlled and dominated by fear, violence and pain, and she has learned to accept the pain and the abuse, adapting to an imposed life of sexual servitude. She has been trained to take it: "I craved the release of death, but I was too well trained to earn it." Even as damaged and beaten as she is, Mia isn't broken, yet, and she holds on to life only because she feels there is something she must do, something bigger and better than who and what she is. This story is told in first-person from Mia's POV, and it reads as personal, raw and even heart-breaking. There are a lot of gripping scenes in this story, disturbing scenes such as forced oral, coercion and rape, torture, and humiliation (even a scene with urine), but most disturbing of all was the idea of this young woman's childhood. She was sexualized at a much too innocent and early age. From this abuse, Mia's life became a series of lonely, painful and twisted actions, one compounded by the other and none really at her instigation. Darkly erotic and gritty, this story touches every shadowed place in a character's mind, every rough desire and every twisted part of a soul, but it also delivers touches of softness and sympathy. And at the end, there is even a feeling of redemption, that very idea of being more than a label, of being more than your past. The pay-off arrives, after all the suffering, and the reader feels as if she, too, has survived along with Mia, finding solace at long last. It takes a certain amount of skill on the author's part to deliver the reader through so much darkness and pain and into the arms of a tender resolution.
