Blurb: It was the biggest day of my life.
I know most people say that about something joyous; a graduation, a wedding ceremony, the birth of their
first child. My situation was a little different.
Sure, it was my eighteenth birthday, but it was also the day that I was sold.
Sold to a man with hair like a crown of gold and eyes blacker than the darkest pits of Hell.
He bought me to own me, to control me, and to use me as a means to an end.
I was his tool and his weapon.
And through it all, somehow, I also became his salvation.
   
 
 
Excerpt: I was locked in the dark but it was more than an absence of light. It was the blackness of my own solitude, the quantum hole at the center of my soul that was slowly sucking away at everything that made me me.
I tried to write an encyclopedia of Cosima facts to cement my sense of self in the chaos of night that had become my life.
Cosima Ruth Lombardi.
Born August 2nd 1998 in Naploi, Italia to Caprice Maria Lombardi and Seamus Patrick Moore.
My favourite colour was wine red, captured in a glass and held over rich, warm candlelight.
I loved poppies best of all flowers because they reminded me of me in a way that was narcissistic but true. They were bold as blood, stark against the softer colours of the traditional Italian countryside. They demanded notice and received it. But their beauty was short-lived and fragile as the thin silk of their petals. They fell to bits within a week and scattered on the wind.
I felt very much like one of those black centered blooms, falling apart with every breath I took without even one witness to my dematerialization.
He wanted me like this.
Lost like decaying particles in a petri dish.
I didn’t have to hear his British accented voice clipping the words into neat little explanations to understand why.
He wanted me broken.
A beautiful, hollow shell to break open and f*ck into.

My Review
 5 Stars
ENTHRALLED by Giana Darling is book One in The Enslaved Series.  This is the start of the story for Cosima Lombardi and Alexander Davenport, the Earl of Thornton, and is a spin off of the The Evolution of Sin Series.  I enjoyed this book more since I had read (and loved!) that series but I did think it could be made a standalone book.
Cosima on her 18th birthday was sold for 5 years to pay for her father's debt.  This opened her to the world of Master/Slave with Alexander being her Master.  I am a big fan of Ms. Darling writing this was a must read for me.  It is a dark story and may not be for everyone, but for me it kept me turning pages.  I need more of their story and can't wait for the next installment.
Loved it!
