WARNING FROM THE AUTHOR: Wanderlust is a dark erotic novel which explores dubious consent, captivity, and power play. Not intended for those uncomfortable with the subject matter or under eighteen.
Wanderlust is one of my top books of 2013. I am a big fan of dark erotica so the author’s warning and the subject matter did not scare me away, and you shouldn’t shy away from this story either! The author has crafted a heart-wrenching tale of pain, survival and love that will leave you wanting much more of Evie and Hunter’s story.
Can love come from pain? This is the theme of Wanderlust. Our heroine Evie is running away from a painful past and searching for emotional and physical freedom while on a trek across the U.S. to see Niagra Falls. Hunter is a trucker and let’s just say they have a fateful encounter while on the open road. Is Hunter a monster? I don’t think so, and in fact, I LOVED his character. Will Evie find the freedom she is seeking? Read the story and you will find out.
Ms. Warren has created two richly-drawn characters that haunted me long after I finished their story. I was immediately drawn into Evie and Hunter’s lives and I felt a deep connection with them from the beginning of the story. That connection is essential to me as a reader and that is why I feel so strongly about this story and the author.
No spoilers here. Suffice it to say the storyline is absolutely surprising and incredibly fulfilling. The sex scenes in this book are disturbing, graphic and very, very satisfying. Wanderlust was the first book I have read by Skye Warren and I look forward to reading many more of her stories.
