Book Review ~ Irrevocable (Irrevocable #1) by Skye Callahan

Irrevocable - Skye Callahan

As the story begins, Silver finds herself disoriented in an unfamiliar place surrounded by men who are brutally attacking her sexually.  The last thing she remembers was celebrating her birthday out with friends.  She soon finds out that she has become a sex slave and there appears to be no way to escape this harsh world, so she does what she has to in order to survive - submit to her Master, Kirk, and pray that she can one day escape.


But something happens.  Something quite unexpected.  Master Kirk has a tender side and as they spend more time together they learn they can trust each other and work together toward their shared goal - to bring the 'retreat' down.


I have really been in a reading slump lately and decided to dig through my TBR mountain and find something dark, gritty and twisted.  Oh boy, did I ever find it with Irrevocable!  It even comes with its own warning from the author basically telling the reader that this is not a romance with rainbows, butterflies or unicorns.  Nope, this book has explicit sexual content, graphic language, graphic violence and situations that some readers might just find objectionable.  In other words, this one is going to get real deep real fast!  I'm in!


Holy Baby Jesus...this book was absolutely freaking AMAZING!!!!  I really loved this story.  So much in fact that once I started it, nothing was going to come between me, Silver and Kirk.  The journey was dark and emotional, but one that I would recommend to anyone who loves a dark, gritty and raw romance.  This one is not for the faint of heart as it does explore the depravity of sexual slavery, but if you can get past those dramatic scenes, you will find that this book is not only captivating, it is powerful and one that will creep into your thoughts long after the last page is turned.


This was my first experience with reading Skye Callahan's amazing writing, and it will most definitely not be my last.  One click this one will not be disappointed.
