Product Description

Product Description

One look and I became his.
One look and I didn’t even think to run.
Just one look, and Juan Florez had found his golden ticket.
On the wrong side of town in a drug fueled heartland, I went in search of my younger brother, Ethan.
What I would find was something belonging to nightmares.
What I would lose would unknowingly become my fight for survival.
An escape from the clutches of evil seemed almost an impossible task. Warring with Mexico’s leading cartel would only see me closer to my grave. Or worse, used as a bargaining chip to seal a sickening deal my brother had unwillingly played a part in.
But then there was one man who ruled over me. A man who promised to destroy my world at every turn. Juan Florez. Taking on the notorious cartel son was a battle I was bound to lose.

This series continues with:
Book 2: Crimson Desert
Book 3: Laughing Eyes
Book 4: Sofia

This book contains themes and situations some may find confronting.

This ain't your mama's romance novel! Laila finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time while she's looking for her brother...the only family she has left. She's kidnapped and thrown into the world of Mexican cartel that deals in girls and drugs. It's a dark read but full of twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dumb it down! Sept. 23 2015
By Judy Coetzee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's a good story and here is where the but comes in. Laila is as dumb as the ground she walks on, seriously i couldn't wait to get this off my chest and it really bugged the s*** out of me. I understand that she can be naive but she really gives women a bad name. It is a shame as I said because the story is good but that character puts you off. Like Aiden allot but it makes you wonder what he sees in her more than just a pretty face!

2.0 out of 5 stars Could've Used Tighter Writing Dec 23 2015
By rnj1 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Perhaps I'm not the right audience for this type of dark "romance" but I didn't really feel like I knew Laila. Because of that I felt her reactions were ridiculous. From the small bit of narrative prior to her disastrous adventure, she didn't strike me as impulsive or dim-witted.

Yet most of her actions were not in her best interest. I also felt that if Hector or Juan were as ruthless as Ms. Jane wrote (and repeated), she would have been eliminated quite early on.

So, the story didn't ring true, for me. The motivation of the characters were too all over the place. And any author, IMO, who uses exclamation points as frequently as she did has not removed herself far enough away from High School. Plus, her writing style grated on my nerves. It felt like someone who was trained in proper literature trying to write to the masses. The grammar needed help and the sentence syntax was off in lots of places.

So, I won't be reading the conclusion because frankly the whole story doesn't work for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cliffhanger ending, not going to continue reading May 29 2016

Ends on a cliffhanger but I didn't like the characters enough to read the next book. Also the dialog made me wince in some parts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! Aug. 14 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It has been a while since I read something cliffhanger-y and now I know why, lol. I'd very much like to know what happens next, but as it is, I'll have to wait.

I'm not one to rate a book low because of a cliffy, so let's leave it at a warning: there be a cliffhanger at the end of this book.
Hopefully the next book is out soon.

I had my reservations about Little Doll. I'm sort of past dark-rapey romance (as evidenced by what I got a chance to read in the past year). The plot is always the same, overdone and cliched.
This book sounded like dark romance, but since the moment I read the title and the blurb, I wanted to read it, so I gave it a go anyway.

I'm glad I did! The author's way of telling a story suits my taste perfectly... not too descriptive, nor too simple; just about right.

I loved the heroine, Laila (don't love the name, though). She doesn't stop fighting until the very very end, and I loved that her spirit never really breaks even though her situation should have broken it by the fifth chapter.

Aiden was a good hero and I think he did his best with what he was given to work with. I really can't say anything else for fear of spoiling the story.

Now, how dark is it? Dark enough that some would be offended by the content. I'll talk about it further under a spoiler tag, but a fair warning would be that the book contains some triggers (most specifically rape).

There is a sex scene in there as well, for those who like to know these things. I thought it was well written and not too descriptive.
The story moved at a decent pace, and both POV characters felt read like different people to me.
I guessed the twist at the end, but it made sense.

The book could have used another round of proofreading, though. There were some missing words and typos, but not too many.

I really liked the romance in the book and the way it unfolded.

I want to give kudos to the author for playing with my emotions a little and for a moment there, I was actually rooting for Juan.

I'm really curious about where the story will go from here. Hopefully the author puts the second book out soon. I do recommend this... if you're a fan of dark romance (but not too dark, because in all honesty the romance wasn't dark, the story was), you'll definitely like it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paying for her brother's sins...violent and intense Dec 4 2015
By SEB - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've read plenty of kidnap and torture books and this one followed the same pattern as most that I have read...a woman in the wrong place at the wrong time and taken because she is connected to someone and needs to pay off a debt...with her body.
It was violent and abusive towards women (even the ones who seemed to want to be there were treated badly) and all of the men were over-the-top alphas all fighting for the right to take Laila under their wing for "training".
It was an ok read for me and did end on a predictable cliffhanger (I knew what would happen but still don't know who the good and bad guys really are yet) but I'm not sure I want to buy another book to find out.

**** 4 **** "paying for her brother's sins" stars
