Pieces of Autumn The blurb did not give me much of an idea of what this book was aboutat all Yes, the female protagonist essentially sold herself into sexual slavery, but that was about all I was able to get from the blurb I didn t expect a dystopian, post apocalyptic type of story where anarchy seems to be the norm and people are living in squalor This definitely wasn t a story about a sexually experimental girl that signed on for something, only to find out she had bitten offthan she could chew, wh The blurb did not give me much of an idea of what this book was aboutat all Yes, the female protagonist essentially sold herself into sexual slavery, but that was about all I was able to get from the blurb I didn t expect a dystopian, post apocalyptic type of story where anarchy seems to be the norm and people are living in squalor This definitely wasn t a story about a sexually experimental girl that signed on for something, only to find out she had bitten offthan she could chew, which is along the lines of what I was expecting So, if that s what you re looking for, be forewarned That being said, it was a good story.In an act of desperation, Autumn sells herself into sexual slavery for a warm meal and a chance at survival In this gloomy new world, this seems to be a fairly common choice of the masses of girls trying to survive on the streets from day to day Autumn is provided to the much feared Tate as a gift from the crime organization to which she sold herself, Stoker Rud to be a cold blooded murderer, she is terrified of what Tate s intentions are for her and questions whether or not she made a terrible mistake.As the story progresses, Autumn discovers a different side of Tate and begins to question her own sanity as she fights her attraction to this sadistic and dangerous man It turns out that Tate is not the only threat to her safety and she may be safer with him than anywhere else.The story unfolds slowly and it takes quite a while to figure out why Autumn is in danger and who Tate really is It was all very cryptic until about half way through, when the pieces start to fall into place little by little Had I not been expecting something else entirely, I might have liked the storyIt was good, just not what I was expecting It took a while to get in a different state of mind Once I did, I liked the story and can say it was definitely unlike anything else I usually read I give it 3 stars Amazing Seriously amazing The second I started this book, read this book from cover to cover in one sitting..I could not seem to bring myself to be able to put it down Highly recommend this book.

property, to abuse and barter as they pleased All I could hope for was that my eventual owner would be merciful But what were the odds of that What kind of man would buy a woman Autumn is on the run Hunted Alone, scared and starving but she is a survivor and will do whatever it takes to stay alive That is why she turns herself over to Stoker She knows she is selling herself, she knows what will be expected of her, she knows She tells herself she is doing it just to survive, to escape the monster hunting her, nothing or no one could be a worse fate than what she runs from.right Till she wakes in darkness, and hears his voice She very quickly learns exactly what kind of man she has been turned over to, she should be terrified and she isbut she isn t She should hate and despise him and she doesbut she doesn t If nothing else, at least she s safe nowright I guess it really all is about the devil you knowbut does she, could she ever really know or even understand the man who now owns herI hated this girl, I hated her for shining a light on all the dark, private corners of my life I hated her because she made me remember my weakness.I d been alone here for such a long time, nursing my anger, with no one but myself to take it out on She d finally given it an outlet And for that, she would pay.There really isn t much I can say without blowing the whole story out of the water This really is a book you just have to go into blindly to truly experience the full effect It is an emotional rollarcoaster full of semi highs and extreme lows You never know what Tate is gonna do next, how he will react, and most importantly you will struggle to understand what Autumn is feeling and the changes that she goes through the same way she struggles with it You re just forced to feel it all it s intense, a little scary, and yes it does still manage to be hott as hell at times if you can believe that This does have a distinct dystopian feel to it, it s set in the future which is something I didn t get from the synopsis, but it just adds to the story and the overall desperation of all involved Be prepared, this is most definitely a dark romance not the darkest I ve read, but far from light and fluffy and it screams of the urgent need for redemption, along with the heartbreaking desolation that you feel when you realize that it s not always possible All in all, it was a smashing debut for Mara Black one that has solidly landed her on my One Click Addiction List and I for one cannot wait to see what she brings us next.And that was the beauty of it, the incredible grace of my Autumn She didn t try to pretend I was perfect She didn t tell me that I d done nothing wrong She just accepted it All of it Click HERE to check out my FULL Post Bookworm Betties Happy

a dark read, one that will have you guessing how it will all end Society has crumbled, life is nothing like it was Autumn signed herself away to Stoker, to keep herself safe from the man who s been chasing her for years Being given to someone like Tate could be worse than living her life in constant worry and fear of being captured Tate is cracked, dark, tortured, he s broken.Autumn is broken too Pieces lying all around her.Tate and Autumn have one seriously messed up and weird relationship, if that s what you want to call it He is master, she is slave But with all that, they are both drawn to each other.Tate has secrets, a dark pass that he isn t proud of And the Viper.I was scared for Autumn during this whole book I didn t know what her outcome would be She s with a sadist, who has a voice in his head All the while hiding from someone who wants her dead This girl has shitty luck, that s for sure.Tate and Autumn s relationship was constant back and forth It gave me whiplash The same thing over and over, and I got bored, very bored of it I felt like I was reading the same thing, just different chapters.This book didn t pull me in, like a lot of other s do I felt like I would never finish it For me it was just repudiate, like I stated before That s another reason I m rating it like I am.For someone who enjoys the back and fourths, ups and downs, they would totally like this book I m not saying it s horrible, because it s not The plot is good, the writing is great, the sex is sexy But, I didn t connect with it And for that reason I had to push myself to finish it, and I m glad I did I liked how it ended So this is why I give Pieces of Autumn 3.5 stars I wish I could tell you that I was stolenKidnapped off the street in some third world country, sold against my will, while a desperate family back home waited and prayed and talked about me on the newsI wish I could tell you that, because then you might understandWhat really happened I walked to my fate with my eyes wide open But before you say I deserved whatever happened to me, you should know I was desperate I was alone I was afraid for my life You would have done the same thingI thought things couldn t possibly get any worseBut then, I woke up in darkness, unable to move There was only one thing I was sure of I wasn t alone anyAnd then I heard HIS voice Pieces of Autumn is a work of dark romance, intended for adult readers who will not be offended by themes of kidnapping, human trafficking, and violence I m not feeling this book At all It s got potential but I can t connect with the MCs No rating as I didn t finish it. Wow Yet another fantastic book that I have been lucky enough to read lately When Pieces of Autumn started, I wasn t sure what to expect or if I would even like it It was a little confusing and a lot was happening that I had to pay close attention to Autumn lives in a world and time where things have changed considerably I have no idea of what date, but things as we know them have changed and not in a good way People are starving and money has no value any Everyday essential items are Wow Yet another fantastic book that I have been lucky enough to read lately When Pieces of Autumn started, I wasn t sure what to expect or if I would even like it It was a little confusing and a lot was happening that I had to pay close attention to Autumn lives in a world and time where things have changed considerably I have no idea of what date, but things as we know them have changed and not in a good way People are starving and money has no value any Everyday essential items are like gold dust and acquired through various means Not all good ways either Influence, connections and power rule the world that we have come upon in Pieces of Autumn.Autumn is a 18 year old girl, living on the streets She has lost everyone close to her and is struggling to survive from day to day There is people after her for the things that she has seen, so not only is trying to survive she is also trying to keep hidden Not easy Above all the suffering, poverty, deception and chaos There is an organisation that still seems to thrive From their ivory tower sits 7 evil, twisted men who run Stoker Stoker is an organisation who deals in slaves They plant the seed of a better life into the minds of those who have nothing left Once they take the bait, they come to stoker sign away their freedom and life and become a slave Stripped of anything they once were, moulded into a toy and object for those who still have the money to pay, for the luxury of having a slave Autumn is one of those who can no longer put up with running and hiding She wants out Her only friend already went to Stoker, she has nobody left Only Autumn is different, it would seem she is the best in the newest batch of recruits Before there was even a chance to start training her, she is given as a gift She is taken away and finds herself in yet another new and frightening place, all she knows is the whispers she hears surrounding her Talk of how the person she is being given as a gift to, is the worst kind of person for any new slave to be given to He is a monster and is well known for his cruelty More reason for Autumn to be petrified.Upon waking in a barn, Autumn meets her Master Tate Apparently the quiet recluse with sin and darkness in his eyes, is well known throughout Stoker He was one of their best A headhunter, someone who found the potential slaves, and broke them down and rebuilt them Only he was ruthless and far too good at it He also left in a rather dramatic way and still years later is talked about, by everyone Also feared by many.So begins the story of Autumn and Tate I m not going to say what happens between them, as that is what makes this book so amazing The feeling of not knowing what will happen next, and what will become of the both of them is what made this story so captivating The writing style painted a picture of a dark world, where small injections of colour came from Autumn She was spreading the colour with her fiery nature She remains strong throughout and keeps the reader in awe of what she goes through, yet still keeps the parts that make her unique Tate is one of those perfect mixes of someone so bad and twisted yet so addictive You can t help but wantWhat will he do next and when Both of them have been broken in different ways, some worse than others How this has effected them is shown in their actions towards each other I truly loved this story It was a story that fascinated yet surprised me A perfect mix of a subject I enjoyed yet with it s own unique and different twist on things The characters were incredible and addictive Although he ending was satisfying and I loved it, I still wantedI had unanswered questions and wanted to see what else they had to offer Fantastic book 5 dark stars I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review
