This book had me hooked from the beginning. I read it in one sitting. Couldn't put it down. I can't wait for Ren's story. I know it will be just as exciting as these books have been and more so. He is very mysterious and hot!!!!
4.25 stars---DARK ATTRACTION is the second installment in Alexandrea Weis’s adult, contemporary, CORDE NOIRE dark erotic, paranormal romance series focusing on the members of the elite and dangerous BDSM Corde Noire Society. This is wealthy businessman Sebastian (aka Doug Morgan) Dane, and nurse Samantha (Sam) Woods story line. DARK ATTRACTION can be read as a stand alone but for cohesion and back story I recommend reading the series in order as there is a continuing premise that is building with each successive installment. Told from dual third person perspectives DARK ATTRACTION follows nurse Sam Woods as she endeavors to become billionaire Sebastian Dane’s latest submissive. Sam first met Sebastian while caring for his mother at a local hospital. Never one to pay attention to the patient’s family, Sam will soon be introduced to her new neighbor Doug Morgan – a man who offers the world of Domination and submission to our story line heroine. Sam has never considered herself submissive, and is unaware of the lifestyle that Doug is offering. What ensues is the building relationship between Doug aka Sebastian, and Sam, and Sam’s struggles to keep secret her ability to see and talk with ghosts. Sam is able to communicate with the dead-those who have been unable to move on-but most importantly the spirits who need Sam to do something for them. Throughout DARK ATTRACTION three troubled spirits continue to make their presence known to our story line heroine-each with a connection to Sebastian, and the missing and presumed dead Nathan Cole (Dark Perception book 1). The relationship between Sebastian and Sam is one of D/s. There is an immediate attraction between our couple but Sebastian makes no promises of love for the future. Sam is a woman who is slowly falling for the man who now controls every aspect of her life, and a man with ghosts of his own. Sebastian is a strong alpha and dominant character who is unable to keep from falling for the woman in his care. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense. Sebastian is passionate about the rules and regulations for his D/s relationship. There are several secondary and supporting characters including spirits and ghosts, co-workers, and friends. We learn a little bit about Sam’s past and her struggles with her devout religious family; Sebastian’s past remains a bit of a mystery although there was some trouble between father and son which is an ongoing issue in the current time line. DARK ATTRACTION is a story of friendship and love; submission and Domination; passion, intrigue and suspense. There are moments of spirited communication revealing sins of the past, and the realization that everyone hides behind a personal and public mask. The premise is captivating and provocative; the characters are emotional and intense; the romance is passionate and challenging.
