Wanderlust, by Skye Warren was released last week and after downloading it to add to my ‘to read later’ pile, I thought I would just take a peek to get a flavour of what to expect. Once I did I was hooked, drawn into another of her darkly erotic tales, and I was compelled to read it to the end, in one sitting.
In Wanderlust, Evie, a young woman who has been sheltered by an overprotective mother, leaves her home and drives across the US to take up a job many miles away. En route she spends the night at a motel where she is singled out by Hunter, a trucker. Hunter will not take no for an answer, so much so that he kidnaps her and holds her captive. The tale delves into the realms of dubious-consent, captivity and power play, which left me feeling very conflicted. That said, I found it to be a dark but beautiful love story, in which I found myself feeling sympathetic towards both main characters, including Hunter the kidnapper. I loved it!
