SEMBLANCE by Logan Patricks

SYNOPSIS:

Whoever said money couldn’t buy happiness has never starved a day in their lives.

My name is Aria Valencia, a third year classical music student at the university, and I was down to my last dollar. Some nights, I seriously considered working at the rippers just to make ends meet, but the thought of my dad’s spirit–God rest his soul–scowling at me while I danced up on some drooling degenerate was enough to turn me off the idea completely.

And then one night, chance came knocking on my door under the guise of the Midnight Society, a secret cabal comprised of the most wealthy and influential souls this side of the Universe. Their leader was a man named Shadow, who was equally enigmatic as he was gorgeous and, for some mystifying reason, had his dark brooding eyes focused on me.

Seduced by the promises of fame and fortune in exchange for a seemingly innocent request, I soon found myself drawn into a provocative world filled with both vast riches and unending lies and it didn’t take long for me to realize what being a part of the Midnight Society actually entailed: shiny things, sensual romance, and dead bodies.

Being with Shadow came with a terrible price, one that I wasn’t willing to pay. There’s a dark side to every love story, and this one was mine.

My Sweet 5 Star Review:

So I received an ARC of this story for my honest opinion.
I freaking LOVE the way Logan Patricks’ mind operates!!!
This book was just…WOW, the book had so many twists and turns that I really didn’t know what to expect it just constantly kept me on my toes.
Aria is a poor college student (art major) who loves music. Her goal in life is to have people appreciate her musical gift of piano playing. She leads a simple life with only one friend until one night when she is offered a job and accepts more than she has anticipated.
Shadow is the leader of the Midnight Society, he is such a mystery. He is a beautiful man with so many demons and such sadness…my heart constantly aches for his pain and loss.
Abraham is such a kind hearted soul…he’s just someone you want to be around.
Lincoln can make you smile because he is funny, and Calisto is just bigger than life with her stories and just her being Calisto.
This story made me cry, laugh, and be a jealous green eyed minter wanting to go to Cambodia with Shadow. So many emotions in this one book, and it still has me wanting more. I cannot wait for the next book, I cannot wait to see what else Logan Patricks has waiting for us!

AUTHOR BIO:

Logan discovered both love and heartbreak at the tender age of seven, when the pretty little blue-eyed girl next door stole his Kit-Kat bar and shared it with the bad boy from across the street. Devastated, Logan found solace by escaping into imaginary worlds he forged with words, creating kingdoms where the chivalrous knight always got the princess.
Twenty three years later Logan spends his days in a suit and tie, working for the government on matters of network security. However his thoughts never strayed too far from the incendiary nature of love — the passionate fire that’s both scintillating and dangerous. Obsessed with exploring the steamy and mysterious side of human nature, Logan continues to create worlds filled with thrills, mystery, and of course, sex.

Author Bio

I’m an Ineffable Dom. That just means, do yourself a favor and please don’t try to describe me or fit me into your categories. Complicated Dom, Intricate Dom, Confounding Dom work too.

I love very much the soft side of a woman. Not just her body, but everything on the inside– her passion, her intelligence, her convictions, her delicate tenderness. But the one fetish that might be a part of what makes me an Ineffable Dom is that I love her strengths. I love a woman that isn’t afraid to look me in the eyes and say ‘make me’. But I need it to be real, not staged, not pretended. She has to be a fighter at her core the way I’m a Dom at my core. I want an equal that is willing to come hard against me in every sense of the word, exhaust me. I want her so deep inside me that we’re lost in each other. I want her to never doubt that I will always use my power to adore her, protect her, liberate her. I don’t want a woman I can break, or overpower, or exercise my dominance over, I want a woman I can come undone with. I want a woman I can jump off the cliff with into that abyss of holy hell, this is beyond me, beyond my control. The greatest fear of most people is losing themselves or unravelling their roots. My greatest fear is not finding a woman I can take that plunge with. Yes, it’s a huge risk. That’s the yin and the yang of it. And while the risk titillates my Dom, it’s the ineffable fruit of that risk that moves him. He knows he has to have it. He knows he’s supposed to have. And he’s prepared to dominate for it.

I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. A map for women as well, to let them know Doms like this exist. I’d like to call them out of the woodwork. Help men join with their natural inner Doms in a way that I think is one of the most fulfilling experiences there are. I want to challenge them all to go for the complete power exchange with a woman, but don’t be a coward and not give the same that they demand or expect. And consider that when you give one hundred percent of yourself to a person, there is no more of you to give away. You now belong to them the way they belong to you.

Inner Doms are dogs that need a master to train them. I once bowed to my Dom’s reckless and tireless desires, but when I gained control, he bowed to my will. The transformation made me into what I am today. What many would call an Ineffable Dom. But its equal term in the Vanilla world, in my opinion, is a real man.

“Faith, oh just the person I wanted to talk to.” And that is when I hear the voice I have been waiting to hear for weeks now. It’s him, it’s Ryder. I almost feel like I could do jumping jacks I am so happy. No, Faith. Keep your cool! The images of his gorgeous body flood my mind as I hear his voice curl around my ear drum.

“Y…ye…yes…” Pull it together Faith! “Yes, that’s me.” I say on little too high of a note.

Clearing my throat, I continue. “Is there something I can help you with? Or are you done wasting my time?” I ask with snarky tone to my voice.

“Ah, my sweet girl, what a mouth you have on you. What I would do to….” He starts to go into details but I cut him off.

“Is there something important you are calling for?” I bluntly ask him, becoming rather sick of his games in this short amount of time we have interacted.

“Oh yeah, is my sister around?” It sounds more like a statement than a question.

“Hang on; let me see if she’s here.” I start to turn away from the counter to look for this woman when I realize, I have no idea who his sister is! “Wait, who’s your sister?”

He starts to laugh on the other end of the phone, “Layla, of course.” He starts to laugh even harder once he says her name.

Standing there staring at the back of Layla’s head trying to put the pieces together on how these two are related, I scratch my head and get her just like he asked. “Layla you have a phone call.”

Layla turns around and nods her head towards me and finishes up her conversation with Lloyd before walking over to me. I see that they are almost done so I get on the phone; “She will be right with you, sir.”

“Oh, I love hearing you say ‘sir’. Gives me all kinds of dirty ideas.” He purrs into the phone.

Completely in shock and not knowing what to say, I cover my mouth with my hand. “So tell me something about yourself Faith, while we are waiting for Layla.” He says ever so casually.

I have no idea how to respond to him or if my words would even come out right if I tried to talk to him right now; so I just ignore him and hope that he won’t continue to talk to me.

“Oh, look. Here she comes.” I say to Layla as she is walking up to me with a strange look on her face as she sees the look on my face. “Well, you have yourself a blessed day now and God bless.” Maybe if I throw some real southern manners in there he’ll leave me alone.

But knowing this man he is going to have something to say back to me no matter what tone or words I use.

“Oh yes, you’re going to be a fair challenge, but I can promise you this I get what I want and I keep what I want.” He clicks his tongue on the other end of the phone. “I know you felt the connection between us, so when the time comes. Don’t fight it, just let Ryder take control.” He says in a commanding tone that’s dripping with raw sexuality.

“Excuse me, but I am not someone that you can just have and keep. I actually like being myself and not being told what to do.” I spit into the phone as I start to shake from being so frustrated and just flat out pissed off at this baboon.

Layla stops in front of me and stares right at me, mouthing the word ‘what’ I shake my head no at her and hold up my finger to signal one minute.

“Faith? Did I lose you?”

“No… You didn’t lose me. You didn’t have me in the first place, but I’m here.” I say back.

“I will be back in two days. You will have dinner with me when I get back. I would love to get to know you.” He is asking me on a date? Actually he isn’t asking me he is telling me. Is he kidding?

“I don’t think so; I’m not interested in going anywhere with you. So my answer is no. Sorry.” I let the cockiness seethe through my voice.

“Faith, run for as long as you want ‘cause I am not giving up on you. I like the chase and I love a challenge.” He clicks his tongue again, “So run, run while you can. Cause, I’m coming for you baby.” I can hear his smile through the phone.

“Get over yourself douche bag!” I say with disgust in my voice as I hand the phone over to Layla. “Here, he is all yours!”
