Publisher's Summary

For fans who love the darkness of FSOG, This Man, Twist Me, Captive in the Dark & Red Sparrow.  

BLAIRE: Part 1 in The Dark Romance Series - Bought. Conditioned. My name is Blaire. I'm head of security to a man who controls the Russian underworld in Europe. His name is Maksim and he's my master. He bought me 10 years ago and conditioned me with brutality to worship and protect him. And I have protected him. I've slain everyone who has tried to do him harm. Everyone but a man he loans me to; a man who threatens to break me and everything I believe in. You're going to need a strong stomach and a strong heart to follow my story, because take my word for it, it's no fairy tale.  

BLAI2E: Part 2 in The Dark Romance Series - Don’t take what isn’t yours. Unless you’re willing to fight for it. I survived my depraved master, Maksim. Now, I belong to Charlie Decena, by nature and by nurture. He broke everything I believed in. My life still lingers in the gray zone - dark and light, love and hate, betrayal and murder. I’m battling Maksim’s brutal conditioning to uncover who Blaire is, for Charlie. I adhere to his counsel, indulge in his debauched desires, and pacify his dominance - until he pushes me too far. I hope I didn’t completely shatter your heart in the beginning of my story because it’s just getting started. I’m being tested beyond my limit by a lurking threat who has taken something very dear to me. And if they don’t return what isn’t theirs, someone is going to die.  

There’s Something About BLAIRE - This is not a full length novel: 6,000 word count. This is a bonus scene from BLAIRE Part 1 in Charlie’s point of view.   

Enjoy listening to over 29 hours of contemporary dark Romance. This series box set comes with bonus scene material.

IT'S DARK.. & OVERFLOWING WITH SUSPENSE & FEELS

Wow.. this is a very dark and twisted journey, a rollercoaster ride that picks up speed and intensity then plunges headlong into heartache and, as much as you want to look away, you simply can’t because it’s THAT good. So, all you can do is hold your breath, anxiously bite your nails as your blood pressure rises and rises.. and you pray to all that is holy that this chilling/thrilling ride will eventually lead to a HEA ending.. but arrrrgh, instead it’s a cliffhanger.

This is an epically written twisted romance between two very damaged killers, it’s a compelling suspenseful story that will end in a turbulent sea of betrayal, broken promises, bloodshed and battered hearts. It’s not for the squeamish, the sensitive souls or the easily offended.. no, it’s for those of us who want a thrill ride, who want to be shocked and submerged in a dark story of kidnapping, bloody torture, rape, brutal punishments and sadistic men who all want to control and use the emotionally void, cold and detached Blair. She has been ‘programmed’ from 8 yrs old and now she quietly, efficiently and subserviently executes her master’s every command. It could be hacking, protecting her master at any costs, brutally killing for him, mindlessly following his sadistic orders, take his punishments and accept them as fair and to leave mayhem and murder in her wake because nothing affects her.. until Charlie. He will become her selfless saviour, her passionate protector, her loving friend, her devoted lover, her salvation.. and her downfall. Charlie is a virgin and her master intends to keep her that way.

It’s an action-packed drama-heavy scary ride into darkness, it’s a slow unfurling of truths, it’s a passionate plea for redemption, it’s a beacon of hope for salvation, it’s a story of love and how it heals - and how it hurts.. and it ends on a promise that lots more anguish will follow these deeply damaged characters. It’s a highly charged explosion on your senses and sensibilities and Shiri Rae expertly brought Blaire’s story to life and smoothly switched from accent to accent, charged the scenes with all the right feels, convincingly switched from character to character male to female and bloody shocking drama to passionate sweet promises in the blink of an eye. Hunter Millbrook did a good job with Charlie’s POV in the epilogue and bonus scene.

Worth a credit? Yes.. for me, this was a pulse-pounding, heart-racing, jaw-dropping wild and crazy ride.. and I cannot wait for more.

Dark & Dirty

I LOVE the Blaire series. Anita has an amazing imagination and articulates herself in such a way that creates an amazing image in my mind how things play out - WOW! Shirl Ray and Hunter MillBrook narrate these stories and accents to bring the characters to life.

Psychological torment these characters lived, were haunted and struggled to survive. Everyone struggles differently and everyone heals differently, so when Anita writes her characters with such depth and dis spare my heart wretched for all their flaws and their corrupt thoughts to survive while trying to love.

Blaire's brother is her protector and yet he struggles with his own demons and relationship. Charlie is emotionally captivated by the broken Blaire and loves her and struggles with his own monster inside him.

Broken people surviving among several corrupt communities all struggling to survive and understand what love really is. They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger....not sure that's quite true for these characters. AMAZING DARK ROMANCE in my opinion.

Steamy & Fast pace

Both books as well as the narrators were on par no issue there. But why would u change the narrotors voice on the epilogue and just screw the whole story line up, is beyond me. I invested 30 + hours to this tale only to be let down by the epilogue narrator.
He didn't have the save caddence ,timing or the stroy telling where with all . He killed the zone, the emotional bonds that the 2 main charectors was building & forging in the story. : -{

Beautifully done

Blaire:
This is a very dark romance story, that leaves you wondering everyone's intention and is very heart pounding as the sadistic story unfolds. If you thought the first part of the book was dark, wait until the end. The ending will leave you breathless and looking over your shoulder!
Anita did a fantastic job of bringing the reader through Blaire's very conditioned and twisted mind, helping you realize why she does some of the things she does that a normal person wouldn't do. Her abuse and conditioning is so deep she seems almost lost completely, making for the heart wrenching, surprise ending.
Blai2e:
Hauntingly beautiful, a great continuation of the story of Blaire. The story brings you along in Blaire's confusion of what is going on, it takes a few chapters to figure out just what is going on. From there, the pieces click into place and you are brought along a roller coaster journey that leaves you wondering how could this go wrong? Fabulous read, fully enjoyed every twist and turn along the way.

The narrators have done an amazing job bringing these characters to life. I adored listening to the story and am searching out more by these narrators.

How incredibly frustrating! She is so annoying!

WOW...this is really a great story, BUT Blair (the character) is so annoying. She really thinks she does no WRONG! I realize she had it bad... she should really understand it could have been soo much worse. (she was not rapped) Most of the other ladies not so fortunate. Same at the end she pretends she has NO fault! I mean are you flipping kidding me! She is not REALLY held accountable for anything she did especially at the end. I really made a fool of myself screaming at my speakers over this issue. For someone that is so strong she sure does behave like a child. I did not expect that for her character. Unfortunately, that really took away from what this story could have been. Also why dual narration? I was really looking forward to having male and female voices throughout, not just the epilogue for him. how disappointed 😞

Oh Blaire....

I could say a million things and I hate writing reviews but this series left me stunned. When you think of a normal life and a family you never think people really live like those in the book. But it’s real. This book broke my heart, made me cry, gave me chills and gave me hope that as a person we are able to endure the worst and still have a bit of life left to fight for more. If you haven’t heard it try it. Great find.

Too Intense!

If you have issues with your heart don't get this series. If you enjoy a good intense story with cliffhangers, then get it. Besides, the narration is good. Guess one of my many questions to ask is what's wrong with Blair and Charlie staying together and working as a team? It was also amazing to see how Blair had much evidences to prove that she could and should trust Charlie but always second guessed herself and chose deceitful James instead good sound reasoning. Just couldn't understand why the author chose to make James the single most detrimental trigger to Blair's behaviors. Now I hate that I want to know how book 3 turns out. Dark romance indeed! Hope book 3 follows a more realistic plot where Charlie and Blair are the perfect couple handling their chaotic world together and James is nowhere around.
