Follow Me Darkly (Follow Me #1) by Helen Hardt

She’s a take-charge woman. But he’s a master of control.

Skye Manning knows what she wants. Her job as assistant and photographer for a major social media influencer isn’t perfect, but it’s a rung on the ladder to bigger and better things. She’s confident she’ll one day take feature photos for National Geographic.

Self-made billionaire Braden Black didn’t get where he is by taking no for an answer. When a chance encounter with the refreshingly innocent and beautiful Skye piques his interest in more ways than one, he’s determined to make her submit.

Dating a billionaire soon has Skye in the middle of a Cinderella story…until the clock strikes midnight and Braden reveals his dark side. Heat sizzles between them, and Skye finds herself falling hard.

But Braden Black is no Prince Charming, and his dark desires are far from his only secret.

4 out of 5 stars

Follow Me Darkly was super sexy, fast-paced, and entertaining. It was a light and easy read and I was excited to find out what would happen next.

I was in the mood for insta-everything and that's exactly what I got. I liked getting to know Skye and loved all the details about Braden. This guy is a sexy mystery that definitely likes to be in control and I couldn’t wait to find out his secrets. There are hints along the way and by the end, I was guessing correctly what he was hiding. Together Skye and Braden are scorching hot! Mixed in with the heat are some lighter moments that I enjoyed as well.

This was not a taxing read even though there's some mild drama in play. It definitely brings the hotness and there are some light BDSM elements happening. I enjoyed the overall story and the exploration of what would happen next between Skye and Braden. The story itself is not super in-depth but it gave me just enough to keep me hooked and keep things moving along nicely. For me, this book was all about the entertainment value, it was just a really fun, sexy read that I got to lose myself in and enjoy. The story does end on a slight cliffhanger but in my opinion, it's very mild.

I picked this up because I wanted a hot read that wasn’t going to stress me out and that's what I got. I was totally caught up in these people's lives and thought it was a delicious escape from reality!
