Ke a shield over what is really going on inside someone s head I actually think Ms Harper does a very good ob with this as you experience what is happening inside Willow s head it never uite approaches the identifiable Stockholm type syndrome instead what she feels is all mixed up and uite confused Although this is not so fun for the reader it is probably accurate to how people would react Damek was an interesting character and the loss of a star is due to him He was very distant and business like and then does a bit of a morph after a while It s not that he cannot morph he certainly could it s Dare for More just thatourney needed a touch exploration He never comes to a good guy persona but there is the flavor of an anti hero with him To her credit the author did not make him a good guy in the end it is Oh how I hate to say this a shade of grey where he ends upClearly this is capturerape fantasy so if this isn t your thing then stay away Nothing irritates me than readers who chose a book like this and then somehow say it is too harsh Get real That s the type of book it is if you can handle it then go forth and read and think about how twisted psychologically the characters are and I mean all of them If not then THE COCAINE ADDICTION CURE (Drug Addiction, 12 Step Program, Road to Recovery, Alcohol Addiction) just don t do it This is not your mother s bodice ripper ladies and gents I was ready to give this one 5 stars when I was %65 through itWillow is a docile and obedient young lady always doing what others told her to do She s grabbed by the good folks at Carnal Incorporated to be sold as a slaveDamek is her trainer and is a big believer in both psychological and physical punishment as teaching tools She s both sexually responsive and very obedient from the start but unlike most of the slaves she gets less obedient and docile as the book goes onThe last 3rd of the book isust weird to me Willow becomes brazen and whatnot and Damek turns into some sort of Vanilla guy and they find their HEA together as a vanilla coupleI don t even know what to say about it Does the author hate BDSM No idea Does she think lifestyle Masters freuently Boku no Hero Academia dj - Osananajimi ga Sugoku Yakkai na Kosei ni Kakatteru just go vanilla Again no idea Do they stop owning the slave of their dreams so that they can turn vanilla when said slave is having mind numbing orgasms as a slave I don t even want to speculateI know as a lifestyle slave myself itust feels like either the characters in the book are betraying themselves the author has no idea what drives people into the lifestyle to do this stuff in the first place or she is trying to impart lessons that even if you are into BDSM if you find Mr Right you can ust go Vanilla all of which is nonsenseSo I knocked off 2 stars for how the last %35 of the book made me feel about myself and the authorstory and arrived at a 3 star rating This was an okay read for me The concept of the big bad trainer showing emotion and falling for the feisty little slave is a little unbelievable to me And I also would have really liked to see how he did treat her after paying for her.

Aracters feelings and thought It follows Willow a woman who ust got dumped and lost her Imprisoned with the Alien Rohilian Warrior job Then she gets captured and turned into a sex slave for an auction It was interesting watching her progression from a normal person to a piece of flesh The way her mind changed and how she handled the extreme torture I don t think I could survive any of this but I guess if you don t have a choice you have to cope somehow This was my first venture into a very dark BDSM genre of non consensual sex I was not sure what to expect yet I read the book in its entirety I hate that I paid for it because I didn t really like the book I would have felt okay had this been a title available via kindle unlimited I didn t rate it one star because it was well written and I believe for folks who are into this kind of kink it s a good book Thisust wasn t my cup of tea Also I was disappointed that the story depicted only women as sex slaves having no worth and being seen as animals That only men had the means by which to buy and open a person specifically women I would have rather seen this treated eual a sex slave institute that housed and trained both men and women Oh well what do I know Additionally from now on if the book isn t on Kindle Unlimited I probably won t buy it I like to try before I buy considering the cost of ebooks these days Really closer to 35 than 3 but GR doesn t allow that Willow has Masterplots II just lost herob and her boyfriend so she couldn t be downtrodden She severed the bonds with her family she s an only child years ago due to her parents fundamentalist teachings That means two things are converging that will forever alter her life she grew up believing in strict obedience for the sake of obedience and she has no ties in the world at the moment Enter Damek a slave trainer for Carnal Inc He kidnaps Willow from her apartment and proceeds to take her to the slave training facility Along the way she is tortured with arousal and pain in fairly eual measures It is a pattern that will continue as she is trained Willow is not sure what to think but her viewpoint at that moment is skewed due to her life circumstances Part of her is actually a bit apathetic which is an interesting place to be in the head of a captured woman That perspective was very difficult to get into and understand Most of us would have fight or flight reactions perhaps tending to extreme on either end Death before capture or Do anything to survive come to mind Willow is not like that she s uite torn by the extreme amounts of pain and humiliation although she cannot deny some level of arousal at times she is put through which is always countered at some point by arousal and orgasm She looks at the other women in the facility but makes only tentative voyeur type connections to them This means invariably Stockholm comes into play due to the isolation of her with Damek It s not my fave plot device because it can feel like a cop out for exploration of other feelings Li. N to Willow she has been targeted to be trained as a sex slave The ob has gone to Damek an experienced Carnal Incorporated operative Based on what he knows of the latest subject the lovely but insecure young woman will be easy to mold She’s a natural submissive Willow’s wil.
Carnal Slave by Vonna Harper The first of the Carnal Inc books Before I discuss plot let me ust say what an absolutely lousy African Literature and Social Change job of editing someone did Misspellings abound missing words modifiers syntax errors This drives me insane But if the story is good sometimes I can overlook it Not hereThe start of the story and about 23 of the book deals with her capture and the intense training she receives It is harsh brutal overwhelming There were times when I wondered why she did notust slam her head repeatedly into the concrete floor to bring about unconsciousness or even deathThis book is even brutal than Her Submission which I consider the better book certainly the better spelled and edited book If you remember my review of that book I said the slavery system in these books was not as harsh as the Harvest Association was in Cherise Sinclair s books Well according to this book I was wrong about that Then the book kind of falls off the rails in the final third Spoiler alertThe idea that her former employer and her former boyfriend conspired to have her kidnapped and thrust into this program was already overkill The idea that her boss did it BECAUSE she had uncovered evidence of his shoddy building practices BUT never told anyone is absurd She protected him so he turns on her The whole scenario was too unrealistic too much an author s inventionThen her trainer falls in love with her pays the cost of her training the day before her auction and spirits her away not to freedom but not abject slavery either Bleagh First her former employer acted like he wanted to buy her to bring her to heel Second any human slave operation has no heart and is not going to settle for The Alchemy of Yoga just the cost of her training At the auctionI m sure she would have brought many times profit for cost They areust going to let that go For what is 113 of the total sales for the auction AbsurdAnd finally the idea that the reason he fell for her and is taking her away from all this is because thru her brutal training she found the strength within herself and became a better stronger person What a crock 23 of the book if not are dedicated to him breaking her making her Michael Maier's Atalanta Fugiens: Sources of an Alchemical Book of Emblems just a piece of meat who does exactly what she is told or else How do we go from that to a strong thinking woman BullVery disappointed on so many levels After Her Submission I really wanted to see where this began and given the hints in that book it was obvious that Willow and her trainer got together by the end of the book But it was such an illogical disjointedourney not understandable rife with spelling and syntax errors ust frustrated the heck out of me Sick vicious and brutal story that kept my attention until the last few chapters when it got a little weird and boring Not the climatic ending I was hoping for after the crazy happenings throughout the book k This book went out of my comfort zone which is okay I like to try new thingsIt was well written and you could easily follow the ch.
