Publisher's Summary

The Manipulator

I can manipulate the emotions of anyone who lets me.

I will make you hurt, make you cry, make you laugh and sigh.

But my words don't affect him. Especially not when I plead for him to leave.

He's always there, watching and waiting.

And I can never look away.

Not when I want him to come closer.

The Shadow

I didn't mean to fall in love.

But now that I have, I can't stay away.

I'm mesmerized by her smile, by her eyes, and the way she moves.

The way she undresses...

I'll keep watching and waiting. Until I can make her mine.

And once she is, I'll never let her go.

Not even when she begs me to.

While not required, it is highly suggested to listen to the novella Satan's Affair first.

Author's Note: This book ends on a cliff-hanger. For CWs, please check the author's website.

The author needs to go back to school

I was shocked by how awful this book is, and how people on booktok or hyping it up so much! First of all, if I could describe this book into words, I would say it is hypocritical and inappropriate. By hypocritical, I mean that how could someone be a vigilante saving trafficked people then stalk and rape people? In one scene, he says that he was shocked that they put collars on the girls. Meanwhile, a few chapters later, the character states that he would like to put a collar on the female he is stalking. I really am disappointed by this book. I hope that this author
never writes a book again.

When did r@pe became "hot" ?

It was ok until that one scene. Since when is r@pe hot ? Since when is it ok to glamorize r@pe and romantise rapist because " he's hot" ?
He brakes into her house after stalking her for months, r@pe her with a gun. She's saying no and crying and he take it as a yes because her body is showing signs of arousal. Yes, dark romance. Yes stalking. Yes murder. Yes to so much more. But гaping the love interest ? How can you be entertained by a woman being r@ped ?
It's not "non-con genre" , it's гарө.

Wow this was bad

I don’t understand the hype for this. It’s the most contradictory ridiculous tripe I’ve ever listened to. He takes down sex traffickers and spouts how much he hates rapists and then…stalks and rapes a woman multiple times. Adeline is one dimensional and borderline stupid. The only thing she ever says is how much she looooves being scared, how hot she is or how she hates her stalker but…maybe not?

I cannot believe people enjoy this. There is no way I will be reading the sequel. Yikes!

Sigh

I don’t know how many times I rolled my eyes listening to this audiobook. It was absolutely dreadful. I like some smut, but it was just above and beyond ridiculous. I can’t believe how many people actually liked it in my book club. Sorry , I thought it sucked LOL. Narration was good though .

Soooo over hyped

I was shocked this book fell so flat for me. I just didn't enjoy much of any thing about it. I continued to read the second book because honestly I had bought the set. It didn't get better.

Proceed with Caution

Ok so I was a little weary about using my precious credit on this but I was pleasantly surprised. The writing is pretty cringey in some parts and the overall theme is VERY difficult to get through at times so definitely read up on the trigger warnings…but Teddy’s voice was the one thing keeping me listening. If you’re not familiar with dark romance, this is a pretty good starting point!

Not for me

This seems more than “dark” romance for me. It was so cringey I couldn’t even finish it. It was gross and creepy.

very contradictive

I loved the book don't get me wrong it keeps you on edge and wanting more throughout the book but is very contradictive and confusing in other ways. he helps little girls and woman from the trafficking ring yet stalks and r*** another woman, its a good book and the plot is well written but I would proceed with caution in recommending it to someone and explain what they would be getting into since not everyone is comfortable with this type of writing.

Disgusting

TRIGGER WARNING :
This book heavely implies rape or rape fetishes.
I didn’t finish this book and I won’t.
I can’t explain how disgusting the story is…
I should’ve read the reviews on this book.
Don’t purchase this. The narrators were ok and I don’t blame them for this so I had to give 4 stars for the performance.
