Aesthetician Callista has major lust for one of her house-call clients and her attraction only has a little to do with his highly impressive package. Respectable businessman by day, dangerous Dom by night, Mikal possesses an underlying darkness that sets fire to her most taboo fantasies. If only he’d force her to have sex with him, he’d be her perfect lover.

Something about Callista calls to Mikal’s darkest instincts, but he works hard to suppress his predatory urges and aggressive desires. He doesn’t want the kind of trouble that comes from indulging them. When Callista endangers herself in a bid to satisfy her own forbidden needs, his resolve fractures. Her surrender belongs to him, her body is his to command, trouble be damned.


Review: Naked & Unleashed is the second book in the Taken in Bondage series by Emily Ryan-Davis. I enjoy reading dark erotica, so I was excited to read this book.

Callista works as a aesthetician that makes house calls. She is attracted to Mikal. She has a fantasy she wishes Mikal would fulfill. The character was very realistic as she struggled to come to grips with her fantasy. Her fantasy is not run of the mill, she wants to be raped.

Mikal is a businessman during the day and a Dom at night. He struggles with his darker nature taking over. He is attracted to Callista. He is a wonderful dom, he balances what Callista wants and what is safe.

The chemistry between Callista and Mikal is off the charts in and out of the bedroom. The sex scenes were hot and spicy. While Callista wants to be raped I wonder if what she really wants is to have her choices taken away from her, to give up control. The author does a great job to show us that there is someone out there for everyone.

This book is not for the faint of heart. It contains come darker themes. I would have like the book better if the author clarified why Callista was attracted to rape and what she meant by it. Was is more of a power exchange that attracted her to it? I cannot wait to read more by this author.
