    I absolutely love anthologies. Usually I dip in and out between books with an anthology. As this was my most anticipated Leave Me Breathless anthology I pretty much read this in a few days. I found myself syncing my kindle app on my phone when I hadn’t got my kindle nearby. Another positive about anthologies is I get introduced to new authors and find more books to read. My favourite genre is dark so I was super excited to read this. I wasn’t disappointed. Each of these stories are well written. I absolutely love anthologies.

All of them include dark elements (trigger warning) that drew me in, kept me on edge, made me angry, fearful and blew my freaking mind. Love, loss, rebirth - these words came to my mind often as I read these stories. I was exposed to new authors in this compilation - several of which are now added to my instant to be read list. I'll put a short description of my thoughts on each story below: Marked by Cayce Poponea kicks of the anthology with a bang. Kristine's story is full of secrets, lies, betrayal and mafia connections. At the end of her rope, once faced with a life changing event, Kristine relocates across the country for an almost too good to be true job. The story develops from there and is full of intrigue, action and some really repugnant yet impossible to not like bad mafia types. I really enjoyed this story and wanted more when it ended. Insidious Love by Crimson Syn is my first exposure to the deviantly delicious story telling of Crimson Syn. Immersed in a world of the Bratva, Rose inadvertantly is witness to a dirty secret of her boss and flees. Jake Cavanaugh is a man with a past and is hired to collect and silence Ms. Rose. What happens when the objective becomes the obsession? This story was full of dark triggers and seriously despicable actions by some of the characters. Yet I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. I was riveted to this story and drooling for more when it ended. The Sound of Silence by Dakota Willink was amazing. Gia's character went through so much in this story (none of which I will share because - SPOILERS). I cried, I screamed, I feared for this character. Ms. Willink knows how to write a story that you can't put down, but are almost afraid to keep reading out of fear of what she's putting her characters through next. I loved it. I hated it. I want more. Forbidden Love by Elizabeth Knox was a welcome suprise to me as I am familiar with her work. I loved this story. I am so stoked that Liam has a story (FINALLY). The story is well written, full of colorful characters, especially the bad guys, and action packed. I could not put this story down. Loved the ending. Well done. Dark Desires by JoAnne Joseph blew my mind. It went where I never thought it would go. I felt so much pain for all of the main characters. The ending was not what I expected but it was sheer perfection. I'm still thinking about this story days later. Crimson Dahlia by Patricia D. Eddy was a great story. It is full of mafia, secrets, sex/bondage, death and mayhem. Dahlia's journey was fraught with turmoil and darkness. I felt so much for her and Ryan. I honestly almost threw my kindle at one point in the story. Absolutely great read. Dare Dark by Pepper North gave me a book of my fantasies and pushed my boundaries of what I am comfortable reading. Mia Daniels was a good girl, with a good life. Good but boring. Meeting a mysterious man online, discussing her fantasies with a stranger, she is abducted and subjected to her every fantasy. But can the fantasy of her dreams measure up? Is she strong enough? This story was steamy, dark, and freaking fantastic. I loved reading every word. Master of Control by Sienna Snow really starts off with a bang. A marriage based on deception, power struggles, blood feuds sets the stage for an intense read. I really enjoyed reading how Sebastian dug himself out of his hole with Isa. Forced into an arranged marriage, Isa's world is rocked when she discovers her betrothed is none other than the man she's been dating... A relationship built on lies is always fun to follow. The story is action packed and I loved the ending. Precious Gems by Sierra Hill was a brilliant read. Forced into being her greedy father's mule, Gemma travels across the country to deliver a diamond. Caught in a web of her father's deception, the good, virginal Gemma is forced into the mercy of Faron. The mystery of the diamond leads them both on an adventure full of danger, death, sex and adventure. I loved the ending of this story. I'd love more of Gemma and Faron. Maybe more of West and Roman too. Mia by Sin Silverfall was a dark and sexy read. Mia, the daughter of a sheriff, meets Dantes, a lieutenant for the Venezuelan cartel. Two people completely not suited socially, the magnetism between them both is just amazing. I loved his macho alpha nature in contrast to her innocent naivety. The story moves quickly and is rather intense. Great read. The Bullet Theory by Sonja Jesus was a dark, complex and intense read. The author starts this off with a bang, literally. The darkness of Ellie just broke my heart. I loved this story, hated this story, couldn't put this story down. It was full of so many levels of action. Secrets, murder, lust, death and intensity. Great read.

All unique, full length or long novella and original stories, this collection with leave you breathless for sure. Here are a few of my thoughts on each story: Marked by Cayce Poponea (Mafia Romantic Suspense with 29 chapters and an epilogue): a dark mafia story this really called to be because of the striking differences between the main characters. They were opposite yet similar enough to really push the passion and story line, 4 stars. Insidious Love by Crimson Syn (Dark Romantic Suspense with 13 chapters and an epilogue): dark and mysterious this story really pulled me in. The tension is high and the heat just as deadly, 4.5 stars. The Sound of Silence by Dakota Willink (Dark Romantic Suspense with 30 chapters): dark and triggering for some this was a raw story that really had me holding my breath. Very disturbing and enjoyable at the same time, realistic; 5 stars. Forbidden Love by Elizabeth Knox (Irish Mafia Dark Romance with 36 chapters): a good dark mafia story, this is one that is a standalone but related back to the authors series. I enjoyed the characters and the plot lines, 3 stars. Dark Desires by Jo-Anne Joseph (Dark Psychological Romance with 24 chapters): this story had me intrigued, invested, interested and holding my breath. So good, 5 stars. Crimson Dahlia by Patricia D. Eddy (Dark BDSM Romantic Suspense with 20 chapters and an epilogue): interesting take on a mafia story, it was unique. Nice read, 3 stars. Dare Dark by Pepper North (Dark BDSM Romance with 24 chapters): interesting take on dark and BDSM, this story was defiantly a fantasy come true for some. 3 stars. Master of Control by Sienna Snow (Dark Romantic Suspense with 20 chapters): I am a sucker for bought stories so this one really hit all my favorite aspects. I liked the darkness blended with the heat I think it was done really well, 5 stars. Precious Gems by Sierra Hill ( Dark Romance with 27 chapters): dark and slightly devious this story really held my attention. I really enjoyed the characters and the balance the author maintained in the plot. 4 stars. MIA by Sin Silverfall (Cartel Dark Romance with 21 chapters and an epilogue): darkness, danger and passion. This story hit all the marks and really devoured me. I enjoyed every word, 5 stars. The Bullet Theory by Sonya Jesus (Dark Romantic Suspense with 18 chapters): darkness and manipulation, this story really sets the pace for dark romance, 4.5 stars.

    Wow. Some of these authors really pushed my darkness limit, but that’s the glory of an anthology. I can skim stories that I’m unsure of, while devouring the ones that truly grab me. From crime family drama to crime families that aren’t at all what they seem to abusive men who need to die to honor among thieves, this anthology has a little bit of everything that lives in the shadows. That’s not to say that I didn’t have my favorites. Dakota Willink’s story was impossible to put down, especially b Wow.

Dakota Willink’s story was impossible to put down, especially because I’m a sucker for the Sleeping With the Enemy/Enough evolution of a strong woman. Add in Gia’s destined meeting and I had to see how it all ended. Sienna Snow’s more-than-meets-the-eye merging of two crime families with some not so criminal members kept me interested from the moment an arranged marriage demand was turned on its ear. And Sierra Hill’s story of betrayal that resulted in love and a new future as the reward for being used intrigued me. Even if you don’t enjoy every story in this anthology and even if you’re averse to some of the darker reads, I think it’ll be easy to find at least a few stories to unexpectedly enjoy.

    Let me start off by saying I love Anthologies because you get to meet so many new authors. Which is why I couldn’t wait to read this one! The very first story, Marked by Cayce Poponea is about a Mafia family, and I love Mafia stories. It’s about Gino, who is next in line to run the family, and Kristine, a young woman who has a past she is totally unaware of. When they meet, Gino knows she needs to be in his life, but so many obstacles get thrown at them. Can they fight thru it and come out togeth Let me start off by saying I love Anthologies because you get to meet so many new authors. Which is why I couldn’t wait to read this one!

When they meet, Gino knows she needs to be in his life, but so many obstacles get thrown at them. Can they fight thru it and come out together? Loved these characters, and their chemistry was sizzling. Truly enjoyed this read! Insidious Love by Crimson Syn is not for the feint of heart. It has murder and mystery and so much more! Jake is a killer and Rose is his prey, but can he follow thru? These two have an interesting relationship that will keep you reading from beginning to end without stopping. I absolutely loved it! The Sound Of Silence by Dakota Willink is a heart wrenching story of an abused young woman who attempts to take back her life. The story of Gianna will give you all kinds of feelings. While this story is dark, it shows how anyone can possibly overcome the darkness in their life if they really try. Gianna is an incredible character and I loved how she made a harsh decision that changed her entire life. An incredible story! Forbidden Love by Elizabeth Knox wrote about the mafia, which is one of my favorite genres, especially when it’s about Irish Mafia. Liam and Caprice come from two different families, but are from the same world. These two have incredible chemistry and I hoped they would overcome the family differences and end up together. Truly enjoyed this story! One of my favorite authors, Jo-Anne Joseph wrote Dark Desires. This psychological story is about forbidden love and it will keep you on the edge of your seat. Just when you think you figured out what is going on, she throws you for a loop! The characters of Fynn, Miranda and Maureen are all complex in their own way. Your mind will be blown! This is a delicious, dark read and I wanted more!! Crimson Dahlia by Patricia D. Eddy was my first read by this author, and it won’t be my last. Aiden and Dahlia are two people who shouldn’t be together but you know in your heart that they do. When something happens in Dahlia’s life, Aiden needs to protect her. But can he? Many outside forces are against them. You will need to read this story to find out what happens! Dark Dare by Pepper North is a story of a young girl looking for more than love, she wants to be owned. When she meets Rafael, she feels he could be the one, but they have never physically met. One day that all changes and he shows her what her life could be like. Does she choose Rafael? You will need to read to find out. I really enjoyed this story! Master of Control by Sienna Snow is about two people, Sebastian & Isa, who are betrothed to each other in an arranged marriage neither of them want. But when they actually meet? Watch out for sizzling chemistry! This story takes you on a wild ride of lust and love of which you never want to get off! This story is a bit longer than the others in this anthology and I loved every word! Precious Gems by Sierra Hill is a story about a young girl, Gemma who is put into a precarious position, and how she tries to overcome. When she meets Faron, she is unsure of her feelings for him, but knows in her heart, he’s the one for her. This was my first read by this author and I found it to be really, really good. Another first read author for me is Mia by Sin Silverfall. I’m a lover of Mafia/Cartel stories and this one truly delivers! It revolves around Mia, a young woman who falls hard for a cartel member named Dantes, but she doesn’t really know who he is. Dantes wants Mia, but can she handle his life? I loved these characters and look forward to reading more by this author. The last story, The Bullet Theory by Sonya Jesus is a story of tragedy and revenge that will blow your mind. My heart is still beating hard after reading this mystery. Elle and Kace have had a tragedy in their lives, and Elle wants revenge. This book takes you on their journey. If there was ever a perfect story to end this Anthology, this is it!

    I needed this so much! It's dark and gritty but oh so dirty and good. It's the darker side of the Leave Me Breathless collections and I am so glad it was left for last. The stories all sucked me in and I had a hard time taking breaks in between each one. At one point, I ended up continuing and read two in one sitting. They grab you, punish you, and then spit you back out into the real world. I loved getting lost in these. I needed this so much! It's dark and gritty but oh so dirty and good.

    Precious Gems by Sierra Hill This is a side of Sierra Hill I've never seen before! And I like it! Hill is normally sweet and sassy. However, in Precious Gems we get some sexy naughtiness that rides the line of dark romances. I wasn't too sure about Gemma in the beginning. I like my women especially in dark romances to be fiercely strong, they have to hold up against the male character in the story. So I was worried Gemma wouldn't be able to stand against Faron.

I was surprised when I read the entire quick story. Gemma was definitely able to hold her own with Faron and I think their games are just getting started! I gotta say, I'm pretty surprised with Hills skill level in creating such a captivating story in dark romance. The ummmm... intimate scenes in this book are seriously ones I wanted to stop and take some notes!! So yes get it, I liked the the creativity, the scenes Hill set up to make her readers wiggle a bit in their seats. She was even able to give me an unsavory characters or Mudd. Anyway, if you're into darker romances with heavy naughty bits than this is it!!

    Dakota Willink is always a one-click author for me so I snatched up an ARC when it was offered. I was not disappointed plus I found a bunch of new to me authors as well. I especially loved the fact that this anthology had several full length novels in it rather than the short stories that they're usually filled with. That makes the 0.99 cost a steal and I will definitely buy the final version after it releases.

    This whole collection blew my mind! I initially wanted it for Pepper North, then I heard Patricia Eddy, Sin Silverfall and Crimson Syn had stories too. My heart about died, love all of these ladies and their stories were amazing. Pepper completely nailed her story Dare Dark, yay for the Dark side, she needs to keep doing these. Sin did as well, way to bring the Mafia! And Crimson Syn, holy umm heck! I'm gonna need more from these two, Jake is fascinating to me!

Sienna Snow has me wanting to check out her others stories to see what the heck I missed! Now on to the other stories, just gonna say OMG! I was up til 1 am, have to work the next day too! I couldn't put these down, they covered the gamut of emotions but I have to say the last story, and yes people you need to read all, the last story absolutely blew my mind. Never heard of Sonya Jesus before but if this is the quality of her writing, I'm off to check her out. She got me, didn't see it coming and that's rare for me. This whole set was fabulous Dark deliciousness. Not a bad story to be had and most I want to go stalk and see what else they've written! Way to go Dakota Willink and all the other awesome authors. Job well done!

    Wow, just wow, this definitely leaves you breathless . Such a great read . The one story I will pick up to review in detail is , The Bullet Theory By Sonya Jesus . This story is amazing , it certainly gets your mind thinking ' would I , or wouldn't I '. Elle and Kace are happily engaged , and waiting the arrival of their baby boy .......until the horrific day when everything goes wrong . Elle is consumed by grief , she thinks that Kace is back to getting on with his life , but Elle can't move forwar Wow, just wow, this definitely leaves you breathless . Such a great read . The one story I will pick up to review in detail is , The Bullet Theory By Sonya Jesus . This story is amazing , it certainly gets your mind thinking ' would I , or wouldn't I '. Elle and Kace are happily engaged , and waiting the arrival of their baby boy .......until the horrific day when everything goes wrong . Elle is consumed by grief , she thinks that Kace is back to getting on with his life , but Elle can't move forward . She is assigned to see a psychiatrist who specializes in grief therapy. Dr Nolan Mills is the psychiatrist that Elle goes to see . He is a cognitive neuroscientist, he is fascinated by the human brain , and human behavior. A lot of the patients that he sees don't have closure when their loved ones have died because they were murdered , and the culprit has never been caught . Nolan has a theory , if he can find the culprit and put his/her name on a bullet and send it to his grieving patient would they use the bullet to kill the murderer , or would they go to the police and ask them to investigate that person . Elle is perfect for experiment.........what would you do ?

    The best one I missed preordering the first anthology of the for. I have read the other three. This one was the best by far. Definitely darker than the others.However, this one have me a better variety that dabbled with a slew of stories ranging from mafia to contract killers. Lots of suspense and heat in these stories. This collection had new authors to me, that I will be checking out and also familiar favorites. Looking forward to reading more. Highly recommend this series.

    I loved these books and the only way to describe these tales are dark, decedent, and delious, a delightful mix of authors who draw you into their stories, wrap you up in their adventure and make it impossible to leave until you have read the whole thing. Each book has it's own tale of searching for, finding that something they were looking for, a life and a love that could possibly last forever if they are only willing to give into their darkest desires and explore them together.

    For darker romance lovers this anthology is definitely for you. I’m a big fan of darker romances but even some of these pushed me past my comfort zone. There is a bit of everything dark in this compilation with each author writing terrific stories, some with unforgettable characters. I have also found new to me authors that I will be checking out more of their works.

    All the dark, angst and twists you can handle all in one book! Most of these authors were new to me, but I enjoyed all of their stories. Jo-Ann Joseph is one I've read before and her story was .... OMG!!!! Dark and twisted to say the least. I really enjoyed this collection!
