This is not your fairy tale romance
A young girl is stolen from her home by three brothers seeking revenge on her father. They intend to use her against her father in order to get what they want. This doesn't sound like the plot of a romance novel - more like a byline in the local newspaper. Stolen, by Darcy Rose, the first in her Vow of Revenge trilogy, is labeled as a dark romance - and it is definitely that. It is a reverse harem story with reluctance and some taboo elements thrown in. Some might see Jessa as a victim, and the brothers who took her as villains - and they are that in the simplest sense. But the author does delve deeper into their feelings, their confusion, and their conflicted states so that the story really isn't all that simple at all.
The story has several triggers and readers shouldn't take the warning in the book blurb lightly. If you are easily offended - stay away. But if you, like me, sometimes like a little taboo and sometimes like a novel to be filled with erotic and steamy scenes (the dirtier the better), then pick up this little black book. It is short and you'll finish it quickly - I actually couldn't put it down. I was captivated by Jessa's plight, but also by the brothers - we do see it a bit from their perspectives which was smart of the author. It humanized them and made the reader unsure of their villainous roles. I for one can't wait until the second book comes out. I was left intrigued, and more than a little turned on - if I'm being honest. Sure I could be embarrassed that I liked this trope but in the end, life is too short for that. Embrace your kinks ladies. Make 2021 the year of Why The Hell Not.
