REVIEW - Dark Desire (Touched By You #1) by Emily Jane Trent

The Book
Release Date: 6 February 2013
Goodreads Link

Recommended for 17+ due to sexual content. Dark Desire is a novella, part of a series of 8 novellas in the Touched By You series – no cliffhangers – each novella has a satisfying ending.
Natalie Baker, a girl from rural America, has an unforgettable sexual encounter with billionaire, Tanner Clarke. The passion between them ignites a flame that can’t be put out. She discovers her dark desire – her life will never be the same. 
“There was something in his face. She couldn't think the thought she grasped for. His skin was pale, and she got the impression he wasn't out in the sun much. His baby blue eyes were so bright, they appeared luminous. And his dark brown hair shimmered with auburn highlights, here under the blaring brightness of the lobby. He was just beautiful. She'd never known a man could be beautiful, but he definitely was.”
Dark Desire, 1st in the Touched By You series, is a romantic tale that takes place in New York. The sex scenes are graphic - includes light bdsm. The author was inspired by the endearing romance in the Twilight series. And the sexual enlightenment, and sweet romance, in the Fifty Shades Of Grey series. Touched By You is a unique love story, with full character development, and added intrigue from the billionaire’s life, that will make each book in the series hard to put down.
My Opinion  2 STARS
**Copy Provided by Netgalley and the author for an honest review**

I know that this novella is part of a series however right from the beginning I struggled with the authors way of writing.  Right in a paragraph the character would change with no warning.

None of the relationship of connection between the two characters felt natural in anyway and I struggled to see why such a major connection can be with them four years later when they meet again.

Its mostly fluff into the world of BDSM and what also annoyed me was Tanners constant mood changes.  Seriously he just seemed like a moody teen unable to control his emotions.  

I am currently struggling with the idea of continuing this series, especially as i have bought the next few books.  Maybe I will leave it a little while.......
