Deadly Captive/Collateral Damage Review + Giveway

Deadly Captive
Collateral Damage
Author: Bianca Sommerland

(Deadly Captive, Book 1)

Lydia awakes, bound and blind, to the whispered urgings of a man who has his hands on her. His words confuse her at first, but she soon understands they are both in the middle of a performance that will determine whether she remains in captivity or dies.
The crowd must be entertained, and her cellmate makes sure it is.
Forced submission is not the only horror Lydia endures. She has no memories of life before her imprisonment, and Joe, her cellmate, is her only comfort as the powerful creatures that hold them captive torture and debase her. Together, she and Joe cling to the will to survive long enough to break free and seek revenge. Their desire to sustain one another triumphs over their wardens' efforts to destroy them. There is no pain, no suffering, that can tear them apart.
Beyond their cell, their love is tested. Can they hold strong in the face of the challenge of the new powers they have gained along with their freedom? 

(Collateral Damage, Book 2)
Stolen from a bright life full of colors, happiness, and youth, Nicole Reed is dragged into a pit of pain and depravity where all she can hope for is a quick end. But her captors don't want to kill her. They want to use her to teach a little boy whom they plan to mold in their image.
She must free him before that happens. Only she can't stand against those who hold him, not alone. Her only hope is Vince, one of her tormentors, who may still show a glimmer of humanity.
Or maybe that's just a trick of the light.
Warning: BDSM, graphic violence, dubious consent, forced sex, forced M/M sex, less than willing participation in edge play, content that some readers will consider objectionable including hot sex with a drool-iciously evil man.

I rate both Deadly Captive and Collateral Damage FOUR LEAVES.  With each of these books, I was trapped in the story.  I felt like I were one of the characters trying to surviving. Dark Erotica is one of my favorite genres to read about.  These two books have to be the darkest erotica I have read so far... and I love it! I enjoyed that the books had paranormal in it too. Bianca Sommerland manipulates her words creating pain, fear, and stress for the characters. On one hand, the books made me cringe and on the other hand they made me need to take a cold shower. Disclaimer: I believe these books are not for the faint of heart and not your every day romance read. I've had Deadly Captive sitting on my TBR for a while and I was so excited I got to review it!  Deadly Captive starts out with Lydia coming to the existence of apprehension that she is held against her will and trying to survive with her roommate, Joe. The plot of the story is that Joe and Lydia are being held captive by ruthless vampires who used them for their entertainment desire for their friends. I knew from the beginning there were something about Joe, that I was missing.  When you find out what it is, you will be startled. Collateral Damage is not as twisted as Deadly Captive but in its own way it is just as alarming when a little boy is thrown in the plot.  Nicole who is a daycare provider has been abducted, tortured, and raped .  She wants to give up and just die.  But she can't because the reason she is was kidnapped was to to teach a little boy.  Nicole will do anything to keep this little boy alive. Just like in the first book, Nicole has to be put on display in front of people to survive. I find that I enjoyed Nicole's story and impractical for me to stop reading it once I started.  I look forwarding reading the next installment in this trilogy!!

Tell you about me? Hmm, well there's not much to say. I love hockey and cars and my kids…not in that order of course! Lol! When I'm not writing—which isn't often—I'm usually watching a game or a car show while working on promo. Going out with my kids is my only down time. I get to clear my head and forget everything.

As for when and why I first started writing, I guess I thought I'd get extra cookies if I was quiet for awhile—that's how young I was. I used to bring my grandmother barely legible pages filled with tales of evil unicorns. She told me then that I would be a famous author.

I hope one day to prove her right.
