FaCade by D.H. Sidebottom & Ker Dukey Review Tour

You meet someone. You date. You fall in love. You marry.
The four simple rules of love….

Wrong! I’m getting married but I’d never met him before now, never dated him, never fell in love. I have no access to the memories of the most magical time of anyone’s life.
My mind won’t allow me to evoke the past, I can’t remember those simple stages to lead me to the fourth.

I can’t comprehend why I would have ever wanted to marry someone like Dante. I should never have passed the first stage, although, I may have seen him through the eyes of the woman I once was, this me that lives, breathes here now, can’t understand how we made it to the next stage.

I’m not sure, without memories, how I know that this voice inside me, telling me I would never have chosen him, speaks some truth, I just know. He’s controlling, arrogant, callous and violent, and utterly hell bent on humiliating and degrading me – Like watching me falter, watching me struggle to comply and be the woman he asked to marry, powers him- as though he wants to break me piece by piece. Fiber by fiber. Until all that’s here is the shell he created from a soul that I once owned.

Now my memories are slowly returning. And they show me a completely different side to meeting him. Our dates, falling in love. The Dante haunting me in the shadows of my mind is loving, gentle and utterly enamored with me, nothing like the man with me now.

And this is what taunts me. My tender lover turned into a debauched, cruel sadist who is determined to consume my life, destroy my mind and murder my spirit.

I am, Star, and just like with some stars in the sky, the light you see is an echo, a façade, I am already gone.

I am a no one.

Especially to him. To him I am the dark in his desires, the corrupt in his depravity.
The sin in his immorality.

5 stars isn't enough for this book......simply amazing!

This is the first book I have read by Ker Dukey, however, I have read several by DH Sidebottom. This book was AMAZING!!! I read it in one day and when I was done I was ticked it was over and that I had to wait for the next installment! I even told my hubby about the book and he said “you read some twisted stuff, when does the next one come out, I want to know what happens too!” I was drawn in from the prologue, I knew it was going to be good, just didn’t know how d*mn good! At first I was in shock, and then I was trying to figure it out. Thought I figured it out but then something threw me off and then I went back to my original thought. This book was just AMAZING. So many different facets to this book and I just love the story and the idea behind it. It was dark, erotic, kept you on the edge of your seat and wanting more. I can’t wait for the next book! Ladies you did a d*mn fine job!!!

Characters: The characters were well written
Sex: It is a dark erotic book, could set off triggers for some people. But I loved it all!!!
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Dark Erotica
Would I read more by this author: Yes

I am not usually one for dark reads, but after hearing such great things about this duo I had to try. It held such a great suspense factor, which I absolutely loved. I did at one point feel the need to set it aside and start something lighter I almost didn't finish, but I am glad I picked it back up and finished reading. The warning on this one is no joke, readers should pay attention to it.

I can't even say anything about the characters without giving anything away. I will say be prepared for twists and turns it definitely takes you for a ride.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active... I would want to change the script. I would watch films and think of ways they could of improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I'm not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I'm a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.
