Sherri Hayes ~ Slave ~ Review

I just want to take a minute and say Thank you to my friend Taryn from My Secret Romance Blog for recommending that I read this book. Taryn knows I like my books a little dark and we had been talking about what was to read and she asked me if I had heard of author Sherri Hayes. Sadly at the time I had to say no but she went on to tell me about all the talk that was going on about her on Goodreads and that she thought it was a book right up my alley.
I'm happy to say she was right!! I loved this book and it's not only dark but it has heart and lots of emotion. I was not expecting what I got out of this book. I figured it would have sex and be a bit rough from just the title but as I say below in my review I got so much more than I bargained for, I hope you don't see the title and say "not my thing" cause you will be missing out on a tender love story.

Slave (Finding Anna #1) Stephan has lived the lifestyle of a Dominant for five years. After several rebellious teenage years, it gave him the stability and control he had been seeking after his parent’s death.

As president of a not-for-profit foundation, he knows what his future holds and what he wants out of life. All that changes when a simple lunch with his college friend and Mentor, Darren, leads him to buying a slave.

Thrust into a situation he never thought he’d be in, Stephan can’t walk away. He is compelled to help this girl in the only way he knows how.

Brianna knows only one thing, she is a slave. She has nothing. She is nothing.

Can Stephan help Brianna realize that she is much more than just a Slave?

~ Review ~

THANK YOU to NetGalley for the opportunity to review this book. 

Are you looking for a BDSM Romance or another "Fifty Shades" kind of book? Well this is not it, this book gives us so much more. This is a story of a broken girl turned into a Slave, used, abused, and tormented until a stranger comes along and purchases her. YES PURCHASES HER!

After saying that I'm sure you are gonna think the same thing I did... Non-consent sex, more torture, sex, BDSM games, and abuse but that
’s not what we get at all. We get a tender story about a man, Stephan, who sees a broken girl who needs him and what he understands... the beauty and need for submission.

Brianna lead a very sheltered life until one day when she was taken and made to become a Slave for a wealthy masochist who enjoyed harming and torturing her. While Brianna learned to submit and be obedient to his demands
, she lost bits of herself as well. Now she has been sold and doesn't understand her new Master and what he wants. He is so different from what she believes to be a "Master." He is kind, loving, and thoughtful and this confuses her.

Slave is Brianna's journey into a new life, a new world, and to a new and true Master.
I loved both Stephan and Brianna
they are great characters and I felt so much for both of them. They were both sent through struggles and only together could they get through them.

Favorite things:
The nightly chair cuddles and talks they would have.
How she would greet him at the door and how he would lovingly touch her.
I enjoyed how the author gave us both (2) POV's - it made it even better knowing how they both were feeling and what they were going through.
I wanted more!
Some people may have issues with the mistreatment of Brianna but it is all shown in a memory or conversation so it does less
en the harshness (I feel).

I am now a SLAVE to Ms. Sherri Hayes and I NEED (bk 2) more!
Need (Finding Anna, #2)
