Alison Tyler, "mistress of literary erotica," has mined her memoirs, spinning a kinky fairy tale with a happily-ever-after ending. Dark Secret Love is a modern-day Story of O, a 9 1/2 Weeks - style journey fueled by lust, longing, and the search for true love.
Inspired by her BDSM lifestyle and based on her private diaries, Tyler draws on her twenty-five years' experience penning sultry stories to create a scorching hot work of autobiographical fiction, a meta-audiobook with reality at the core. Take a deep breath and get your safe word handy. Alison Tyler will push your boundaries to their limits - and have you begging for more.
"Readers seeking romance as well as erotic interludes will enjoy Samantha's journey from hesitant awareness of her preferences through a truly psychologically abusive relationship to a more complete understanding of both her own needs and her partner's. Readers tired of sensationalistic portrayals of BDSM will appreciate Tyler's nuanced and realistic approach, which draws a clear line between kink and abuse." (Publishers Weekly)

Wow!! Fantastic story even better sex ;)
Absolutely! The sex in this book alone is worth another listen.
Sam. Rebecca did an amazing job portraying Samanthas strength and emotions.Very believable, As if it was Rebecca's own story being told.
Yes. Made for a very interesting work day.
Of the 70+ books I've listened to on audible, This one is near the very top. I would encourage anyone with any interest at all in BDSM to pick this up. I love that Alison Tyler doesn't take the easy, predictable routes with her characters. I can't really explain the amount of enjoyment I got from this title. I am so glad I finally picked it up.
What 50 Shades should have been
This is a story of a young woman who loves pain, trying to understand, who she is and why her body works this way. She can not achieve sexual pleasure with out the pain. Starting in High School, and then goes on from there. I have listened to many of Alison Tyler's books and short stories.....By far this will knock the rest of erotica off it's feet. (it's supposed to be semi-autobiographical/ novel) You have to be a true BDSM lover for this story, or it may upset some people that there are people like this who do these things consensually..
Samantha........She is the story.
Everything in this book is from the "First Person" Rebecca Estella is WONDERFUL.....you actually feel her shame, pain, doubt, and lust. Her fears, about not being normal, and her desires to fit in.....Ms Estella expressed the emotions wonderfully.
I've read Parts of 50 Shades of Gray, I thought it was ok but not a real, never felt the characters were real with depth. so stopped reading after 1/2 the book. THIS book gets you by the guts from the very first. It's hard to stop, you just want to keep going . I understand it's supposed to be a trilogy.....can't wait for the next book.
Again I warn those who are not into HARD CORE BDSM to pass on this. It is all consensual. It is all with adults, but degradation, pain and these things may upset those who are not familiar with the scene. I am so looking forward to the next book in the series. I have always enjoyed Alison Tyler. I'm enjoying her even more now.....WOW.
