Eliza's Review: Torment Me (Rough Love, #1) by Annabel Joseph

Title: Torment Me
Series: Rough Love, #1
Author: Annabel Joseph
Release date: 13th October, 2015
Rating: 5 Stars
Cliffhanger: Yes

Chere isn’t happy with her life as a high-class escort, but she can’t seem to find the motivation to change. Then she takes on a mysterious new client who won’t share his name, or even allow her to see what he looks like. Their first session is a headlong tumble into tantalizing sensation and fearsome control that leaves Chere picking up emotional pieces she didn’t know she had. 

“W” is roughly seductive, and dominant to the core. His demands shock her as much as they turn her on, and soon the line between bad choices and emotional fulfillment becomes alarmingly blurred… 

Note: This book is super rough. There’s love, but it’s rough. Hence, Rough Love series. This full-length novel is book one of a three-part storyline that culminates in Happily Ever After. But, full disclosure, it’s going to be a rough ride. 

Chere is a tragic character with a questionable lifestyle, even so, I can’t seem to help but champion her. Life has treated her poorly and with a CV that boasts stripping as well as a ten year history in the High Class Escort Industry, she is well versed in selling herself short. 

On a day like any other, Chere sets out to meet a new client. Like most clients, he expects discretion. Unlike most, he goes to extreme lengths to ensure his identity is not revealed and this involves her being blindfolded at all times. 

Meeting at the W Hotel, Chere is an unwitting moth to “W’s” raging flame. W is the kind of character that makes Christian Grey look positively amateur. He demonstrates his kinks; Dominance, control and pain without care or hesitation. As sure as I am that Chere will run for the hills, her lack of self preservation sees her intrigued enough to meet him again and again.

“You’re mine, Chere,” he said quietly.”And I can make you feel good, or I can make you feel bad.”

There are two kinds of bastard in my book. The type of bastard that makes you lusty and the type of bastard that’s a goddamn son of a bitch. “W” firmly falls in the second category. He’s harsh and uncompromising and a compelling character to read about. Just when i’m convinced he's a character without redemption he surprises me.

Torture Me by Annabel Joseph is both an intriguing and captivating read. This book stayed with me long after it was finished and i’m sincerely awaiting the next instalment to this twisted tale.
