Audiobook Review: Dare Darker by Pepper North

USA Today Bestselling erotic author, Pepper North, dares to go darker in the Leave Me Breathless Black Rose Collection…

Do you want your fantasies to come true?

When this simple question appears on her computer, Mia Daniels dares to answer ‘Yes’. One honest response sends the willowy brunette on a collision course with her every forbidden desire.

Domineering and magnetic, Rafael Montalvo selects Mia to be his at first sight. Soon, she is ensnared in his shadowy world, unable to resist the new life that he controls completely. Rafael’s darkness just might be everything Mia has ever needed. And so much more.

*** TRIGGER WARNING: The stories in the Black Rose Collection are considered dark romance. Some aspects may be sensitive for some readers. ***

Dare Darker is (I think) the first book I’ve read by Pepper North. It was well-written and intense. However, total submission isn’t really my k ink so I found myself getting restless, a bit bored, and sometimes frustrated when Mia was punished for misbehaving, even if Rafael didn’t really explain what said rules were. What made this book for me was the narration. Gregory Salinas’ voice is spectacular, deep, sexy and soothing. Chloe Ryan did a fabulous job with Mia. The slow pacing, especially during Mia’s training really intensified the tension and build up. The ending came a bit quick but it didn’t feel rushed. Overall Dare Darker was a great story that didn’t really keep my interest.

I received this audiobook for free from Pink Flamingo Productions and Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntary review.
