Degradation (The Kane Trilogy #1) by Stylo Fantome REVIEW

The Devil has come out to play

Eighteen year old Tatum O’Shea is a naive, shy, little rich girl. Twenty-three year old Jameson Kane is smart, seductive, and richer. They come together for one night, one explosion, one mistake, and Tate is hurled into space – no family, no money, and no Jameson.

Seven years later, life is going pretty good for Tate, when she runs into Jameson again. This time, she thinks she’s ready for him. She doesn’t have a naive bone left in her body, and she can’t even remember what shy feels like. Jameson has evolved into Satan – sharp teeth, sharper claws, and a tongue that can cut her in half. It all sounds like fun to a girl like Tate, and she is ready to play, determined to prove that she isn’t the same girl he conquered once before. A series of games start, each one more devious than the last.

But the devil likes to play dirty, and she learns that playing for souls is playing for keeps. The lines between games and reality, heaven and hell, get blurry. Can she beat Jameson at his own game before someone gets hurt? Or will he leave her soulless, making him the winner, once and for all?

Review

★★★★★ 5 Stars ★★★★★

Dirty talking, unashamed and down right filthy.

This book was written for me. My heart was beating out of my chest by the time I got to the end of this book. I loved every minute of it!

Tatum O’Shea and Jameson Kane first have sex when she is dropping off some stuff for her sister. She is 18, a prim and proper girl who has Harvard and a Political career ahead of her. When her sisters boyfriend, Jameson, gets her drunk on champagne, they have a wild encounter that will change them both forever. This blurb will probably put some people off – cheating is a no no – but I love flawed characters and love to discover how an author can redeem such taboo behaviours.

7 years later, Tate is estranged from her family, working as a bartender among other things and living in the bad part of Boston. She has let loose, loves sex and is not ashamed. Whilst waitressing one night, she bumps into a familiar face who sets her body on fire and her heart racing.

“I like sex, I like having sex, I like being sexy. I like being single. I like being me, and fuck anyone who doesn’t like it.”

They have one thing in common – they like to play games and they love rough and abusive sex. This book was HOT, and Jameson was a huge BASTARD but you could just feel the emotions that he was trying not to show.

I loved that the author wasn’t afraid to take the story in a direction that might not be popular, these two have an open relationship, which I hated, but it is fundamental to the story and for me it added to the emotion rather than made me feel angry about it.

This book just worked for me, I loved Tate and how she didn’t care what people though of her, but was also the most caring and sweet friend and full of life. I loved her relationship with her best friend Ang, the porn star and I especially loved her relationship with Sanders, Jameson’s assistant.

Jameson Kane was a true Bastard, but I loved him anyway. I don’t know what this says about me…

“Fucking hell, Tate. I’m going to fuck you every night from now on, for as long as I can. Cunt. Whore. Fuck. Why are you so fucking good to me?”

Looking forward to seeing how Jameson redeems himself in the next instalment, Separation.

About the Author

Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since …, forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I’m clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
