"Kink at it's finest! 2 in 1 Review - Dark Tales"
2-in-1 Review of Vol 1 & 2 of Dark Tales Diaries by London Saint James
****Four out of Five Stars***
From a mistress with a fetish for her red heels, to a professor indulging in a little play with his assistant on the observation deck, to even an empty nester mom vying for her first big O--yeah, you read that correctly--there's definitely something for everyone in Ms. James' Dark Tales Diaries volumes. Kinks of all kinds are opened up for the characters, as well as the reader, to explore in these stories. No two are the same, and each leaves its own impression if I may say so myself. While each story is short in its own right, I would say there was a decent lead-up, arc, and very satisfying end for every tale.
I learned something interesting while listening to the Dark Tales, and thank you Ms. James, because it was one heck of an eye-opener for me. I'm not big on the BDSM while reading unless there's a Domme in play, but holy mother ... I do love to listen even without the Domme there to flex her control.
Thrust was a great narrator for these tales. A perfect pick, really. His voice is edgy with just enough of a man's growl to make it work. I have to give him props on his vocal acting, seriously. He brings the dialog to life with his voice.
I was thoroughly pleased with the reading and the length. It kept me engaged and entertained. I'm not sure a particularly long novel in audio format would have worked as well for me as these erotic tales did. Four stars well-done and I'm already looking at the next short audio read to get on my phone from London.
"I highly recommend"
Dark Tales Diaries 2 follows the same principles as the first book, a glimpse into the life of Tristan and then the letters which have been submitted to his publishing company. I enjoyed this book as much as the first one. The author continues with Tristan’s quest to find Keira and then the hot tales of three submissions are read. And I do mean hot!
The Observation Deck.
The Top Floor.
The narrator is incredible in book one and he does the same superb job in book two. I highly recommend getting the first and second audiobooks, not only for the stories but for the marvelous narration as well.
I’m hoping we have book 3 soon, since Tristan’s story of finding the woman he loved must continue until we know what happened. Will he be reunited with her?
"Dear Dark Tales"
Dark Tale Diaries 2 is hotter than the first! The overall layout of the book is the same as the first. It delves right into a sexy scene from Tristan's memory and again goes on to tell 3 different stories submitted by women. In terms of the sex scenes, I really found this book to be more satisfying than the first. The author knows how to deliver each story with a sense of romance. Again, the narrator delivers and makes for a great listening experience. I am looking forward to hearing more of their work. The book ends with a cliffhanger and will leave you waiting for part 3... which will hopefully be written.
