In this dirty, bloody world we live in, the answers to prayers aren't always pretty angels.

Retaken by human traffickers, Jazmine's one hope is ex-cop, ex-mercenary, Pieter, a man with a glower that stops lesser men in their tracks.

She prays he can save her.

But this savior is far from perfect and his flaws may prove as devastating to Jazmine as the torture of her captors.

The fire of dominance never dies.

My Thoughts


 Seize me From Darkness by Cari Silverwood is a Dark Erotic reader’s absolute paradise! This will provoke so many emotions out of you it’s ridiculous! It played out like a sensual horror movie in my mind, having me cringe at one point, and biting my lip the next. I was conflicted at the beginning and after finishing the book, I have to say, I’m still fucking conflicted! Oh Ms. Silverwood knows how to mess with my mind so good! She consistently delivers in this genre, and even though, in my mind, there was only a smidgen of romance in this read, it still stimulated my senses to the core.

A woman in grave danger, and a man who pulled her out of HELL, only to stick her in HIS version of HELL. Intriguing isn’t it? There are bad people in this world. Bad people who thrive on hurting other people. Pieter is the lesser evil, or so you think. There are two sides to Pieter’s dominance. On one side, he is protective, caring, and somewhat gentle. On the other side, the side that eventually gains complete control, is cold and domineering to no end. One minutes you are swooning over this man, and the next, you just want to kick the ever-living shit out of him. Some of the words that he spewed, had me flinching and steaming at the same time. See what I mean about being conflicted? But in the end, I find myself yearning for that kind of dominance, that kind of control over my mind and body. I can’t explain it. It just is.

Jazmine is the victim of this story, right? Not entirely. Of course you feel sick for her, for what she has been through, but she has secrets too. Those secrets led her to where she is now. She can deny her feelings and her cravings for dominance all she wants, but deep down, she knows, what Pieter is offering her, is exactly what she needs. 

 These two took my heart and my mind on a freaking joy ride! I still have thoughts running through my head that I can’t quite put together. But a story that can make my head spin, my heart clench, and my cheeks blush, well let’s just say it deserves no less than 5 fucking stars! 

With pain comes pleasure, and with pleasure comes pain. They can both deny it all they want. Make excuses for their behaviors, blame it on the ugliness that is in this world and what they have been through. But in the end, it is what they both need, what they both hunger for, and what they both ache for. While they were both held as prisoners, even with all the ugliness, all the torture, all the pain, Pieter tried to bring in some beauty, helping Jazmine to escape reality and use her imagination to take them to a better place. Keep that man, that savior, that version of him in the back of your mind at all times while reading this book. That man who constantly told her to ‘Never give up. Never give in.’ THAT is the man you will fall in love with.
