Publisher's Summary

They call me a slut. Maybe I am. Sometimes I do things I despise. Sometimes men take without asking.

But I have a musical gift, only a year left of high school, and a plan. With one obstacle.

Emeric Marceaux doesn’t just take. He seizes my will power and bangs it like a dark note. When he commands me to play, I want to give him everything. I kneel for his punishments, tremble for his touch, and risk it all for our stolen moments.

He’s my obsession, my master, my music.

And my teacher.

child abuse

main character is 17, he is almost 30 and her teacher.... it's a very well written sexual book but the entire time I couldn't justify him giving her a safe space because its rape and grooming. author should've written her as a college student and him 50. same effect less disgusting

Overrated.

**Possible spoiler alert

I have read my fair share of Erotica novels, some great and some not so great, but this one was by far the worse. It was overall very disspointing as the storyline was weak and lacked substance. I found that it did not culminate well. One moment, the 17 year old protagonist Ivory Westbrook is living a miserable life of poverty, being brutally raped by her brother’s friend, is dreaming of living a better life and fufilling her lifelong dream to attend an Ivy league music school. The next, she is living with Emeric Marseaux, her 28 years old piano teaher, is rich and is having sex with him like nothing happened. It felt like there were missing chapters. I also, found that the character development was weak as the only two that were really explored in depth were Ivory and Emeric. I would of liked to have seen more sidekick action and more mentor action (besides Emeric). I also deeply hated Emerics character, he was obnoxious and selfish. He fantasized over the fact that Ivory has the characteristics of someone that is being abused and liked that she is submissive and eager to please in order to be loved. He was extremely creepy as a person. I felt that he was taking advantage of an abused young woman that desperately needed a role model, father figure and just plain love. It wasn’t erotic in any way, to me. It was just plain creepy and dissapointing. Also in the end, she just throws away her dream to attend Leopold, an Ivy league music school, in order to be with Emeric. It was all just blah

I feel like its one of those reads that is purposely very extreme, so that sex depraved readers can get off. But ethically speaking, it is wrong in so many ways. Highly overrated. People just like taboo because its taboo and the more taboo it is; the more exciting. This doesn’t make a piece of literature good. Erotica still should have a good storyline and interesting characters.

Better than I hoped

I had high hopes for this and it was even better. Not as much drama as I expected and this was a big plus. I recommend this book and the narrators are amazing.

♾️⭐️’s

I went into this book blindly, and I was absolutely blown away. If I could give this book, infinity, stars I would. The story between Ivory and Emeric is hauntingly beautiful. I was addicted from the first chapter.

starts off not great, but slowly gets better

At the beginning there is a lot of r*pe and forced actions with decent age gaps. some scenes had me cringing in a bad way, making my skin crawl. nearly stopping the book. the narrators are great, and speak clearly. the smut scenes get better near the end where there is consent from both parties, and the age gap doesn't feel as gross. but at the beginning way to much r*pe and sexual assault.

All the right Dark Notes

The only thing I would have changed is how the narrators speak for each other.
