Conceiving Evil by Jenna Fox

Book Blitz:
Conceiving Evil by Jenna Fox
Jan 5th - Jan 18th

Like everyone else after the economic crash, Abby Torrance was struggling financially. But then Dorian Lincoln, a political and business icon, sweeps her off her feet and into a life of promise. He’s a man who has enough power to change the world for the better, a man who can give hope to the masses, a man who can give Abby a baby.

But the road to Hell is paved with good intentions and Abby is having strange dreams that seem both a warning and a prophesy. How can she give the evil undertones of her dreams any notice when she’s busy focusing on conceiving?






Review

A short modern retelling of Rosemary's Baby by Ira Levin that blends BDSM and horror. 3.5 stars.  I like the style of this and if the author writes an original story, I'd love to read it.

</spoiler>

If you met the devil, he'd be into BDSM, right?  Abby has sold her body to Dorian, a married philanthropist billionaire with a penchant for punishment. It's well written and I was enjoying it but the wrap-up was far too fast for me. Also, I recognised the plot straight away as that of Rosemary's Baby. The weird meds, the craving for raw meat, and the ex who goes nuts and kills herself are all from that book. I was hoping for a different ending or a twist.

The breath left my lungs in a whoosh with the first smack of the flogger against my unblemished skin. My back arched, my head lifted when he slapped another across my buttocks. When I lifted my eyes to meet a smile holding no hint of emotion, I knew my dark pupils had swallowed the lighter brown of my irises. I took a moment to admire the handsome planes of his face, the arch of his brows over black eyes terrifying in their coldness. It was the look of a man who could beat me to death with the leather in his hand, but I trusted him to know my limits.
I closed my eyes and slipped into a place where all I could do was feel. I revelled in the stinging, and clung to the burning of the tattoo pattern. Both sensations affirmed that I was his. Dorian’s ministrations pulled something out of my soul and replaced it with a craving for something deep and dark, something that only pain could fill. Corporal punishment filled me with a satisfaction greater than my need. I hushed the moans before they left my lips and pulled my thighs together to catch the seeping moisture. Dorian’s breathing grew harder, almost a pant as he stood too close, a restless prowler ready to give in. I clutched the carpet and gritted my teeth in silent disappointment when he dropped the flogger. His dark gaze strayed to mine as he rubbed the raised skin on my ass.
I bowed my head. “Thank you, Dorian.”
