The Director Reviews

    Reading these dark stories always has me being thankful that these authors decided to put there active minds into writing instead of becoming cold, detached mastermind criminals/killers.

    I’ve finished the Director two days ago, but had to give myself time to process what I’ve read.

    I knew this was going to be a gritty story and it was, really. Heed the trigger warnings. It even looks like this book will not be available on Amazon, is it because it is

    , yeah, probably!

    But despite all of this, I was hooked from page one and was not able to put it down.

    And now I wonder: is something wrong with me???? Hope not!

    If you love reading gruesome, horrid and shocking stories you want to add this one to your TBR-list!

    Oh man, I think I need to go watch puppy and baby videos on YouTube for the next week to cleanse my poor mind of this book. This may be the most twisted and darkest book I have read to date. Don't let my puppy video watching fool you though I LOVED this book. Saying that seems wrong, but it doesn't make it any less true. From beginning to end this one had me enthralled. I will leave this review pretty vague as I think the book is best experienced with little prior knowledge. That said, this is

     

     

    Oh man, I think I need to go watch puppy and baby videos on YouTube for the next week to cleanse my poor mind of this book. This may be the most twisted and darkest book I have read to date. Don't let my puppy video watching fool you though I LOVED this book. Saying that seems wrong, but it doesn't make it any less true. From beginning to end this one had me enthralled. I will leave this review pretty vague as I think the book is best experienced with little prior knowledge. That said, this isn't for the faint of heart <--- I am serious. The book isn't even going to be sold on Amazon (that should tell you something about its content). If you are unsure about reading it and want to know more than feel free to drop me a line and I will happily answer any questions, you may have. Now that my public service announcement is over onto the deets...

     

    I found this one to be fantastically well written and paced. The plot was engaging and kept me turning the pages. It was dark. It was twisted. It was vile. It was bloody. It was shocking. It was taboo. The characters were intriguing and well developed. Ethan will make you hate him but there is just something about him that will worm its way under your skin and you'll be left trying to reason out why after everything he has done you sort of kind of want him to get a HEA. Does he get what he deserves? Well telling you that would just be cheating. ;D Emma was a great heroine. Strong. Sassy. With steel running through her veins. Have to say the woman didn't have a lot of self preservation but it made her an excellent character to get behind. Last, the ending, and this is where it lost half a star for me. I will not go into details as to the why, but I was hoping for something different from what I got. That said, it was still a fitting ending. So I wasn't overly disappointed. Wrapping this up, I enjoyed this one immensely. Therefore yours truly is giving it two HUGE thumbs up.

    You know what I love most about reading a book from Lily White? That I never know how truly dark or twisted a road this author will lead me down.

    Just when I think I have a grip on what will happen next or how a character will react to certain stimuli, I’m almost always shown I have absolutely no clue how this thing works.

    Emma was your typical 22-year old. Living a carefree life without worrying about the consequences. And although her momma taught her to be aware of her surroundings,

    You know what I love most about reading a book from Lily White? That I never know how truly dark or twisted a road this author will lead me down.

    Just when I think I have a grip on what will happen next or how a character will react to certain stimuli, I’m almost always shown I have absolutely no clue how this thing works.

    Emma was your typical 22-year old. Living a carefree life without worrying about the consequences. And although her momma taught her to be aware of her surroundings, those lessons didn’t really stick. After a complete fail of a date, she leaves her would-be suitor at a red light and walks to find a cab home. She’s then taken right off the street and spirited off to a compound that houses other women who perform at the pleasure of the pervs who troll the dark net. The man to lead her through her new life is Ethan Cole, The Director of the films that take place in her new home. He’s ruthless, calculating and lethal. One wrong move... a girl dies. Don’t comply… a girl dies. Don’t cooperate… a girl dies. You get the drift, right?

    Seriously, I didn’t know which way was up with this story and the ending was completely unexpected, which is my favorite kind of read. Because everything that happened through this book was a surprise, I had to give it five stars. When you can pull the rug out from under me and still leave me with a smile on my face, you deserve all the kudos that feat deserves!

    WTF??????

    I’m trully speechless!!!!

    Estou sem palavras e sem saber distinguir o que eu estou sentindo no momento ou descrever quais foram os sentimentos predominantes durante a leitura desse livro.

    Eu já li muitos tipos de darks, mas tenho que confessar que “The Director” me causou um desconforto enorme, me tirou completamente da zona de conforto ou do que já vi dentro desse gênero. Isso é um nível de dark totalmente diferente do que já li e afirmo ser o mais dark entre todos da minha lista!

    Sem cortes, sem censura, cru... Com cenas chocantes, descritivas e pra lá de revoltantes.

    Esse é o primeiro livro que li dessa autora e apesar dos pesares, não posso deixar de destacar o quanto a escrita dela é boa.

    “The Director” por mais revoltante, impactante e chocante... foi muito bem escrito e eu não consegui parar a leitura.

    Então, se você pensa em ler esse livro, aconselho que, leia atentamente e leve em consideração todos os avisos contidos na sinopse. Porque esse livro definitivamente não é pra todos, não mesmo.

    Emma Hart’s life irrevocably changes when she is abducted and given a terrifying proposition. With limited options, Emma’s rationale for her choice is the path of least resistance.

    Emma Hart’s life irrevocably changes when she is abducted and given a terrifying proposition. With limited options, Emma’s rationale for her choice is the path of least resistance. However, when confronted with what lies behind door number two, her perspective radically changes to where every single last moment is earned.

    Ethan Cole is a director with certain professional goals. As he studies people for emotional subtleties, he captures each unadulterated nuance on film. Without filters, Ethan creates a world of violence, pain and raw fear.

    As Emma’s time becomes limited, she learns how to survive in ways she could have never foreseen. Using what she believes to be an advantage to manipulate her situation, Emma is still left vulnerable as the time for her final performance nears. While Ethan continues to control the environment in furtherance of his vision, the course set.

    Told in dual POV, the nefarious tone of this novel is mainly felt through the perspective of Emma as she endures the reprehensible actions of her captors. Yet, even with these conditions, Emma manages to retain a sense of humanity. As Ethan’s experience is shared sporadically, his agenda is clear showing his ability and willingness to thrive in this depraved environment. Knowing her demise is near, Emma must process all her emotions and summon her resolve into the ultimate final act.

    This novel definitely dives head first into a dark and evil world where limits are nonexistent. While Emma’s situation is desperate, she managed to channel an inner strength she didn’t know existed though at times it seemed to provide exactly what Ethan wanted. However, with the level of darkness evident in the physical acts, I was hoping the psychological elements between Emma and Ethan would have been equally as potent. Though there was manipulation, it felt offset by certain actions at times.

    In

    , Lily White creates a disturbing and grisly story that will keep readers on edge at all times. The theme of adaptation pervades the plot which allows for the characters to act the way they do. While it isn’t justification, it just becomes a means to an end. This one isn’t for the fainthearted but for those who like to test their limits. I recommend!

    Dark Erotic Romance

    Standalone

    First Person - Dual

    Emma Hart never thought one mindless decision could drastically changed her life. After being taken, everyday became a struggle for survival when she was force to give a performance of her life.

    Ethan Cole was a well known Hollywood director until he felt stifled by the glittering facade and gone underground. For him, art should have no boundary but even then he wasn't fully satisfied. That was until he met a muse that could potentially be a game changer.

    With this book being a dark exclusive, non Amazon book, I had very high expectations for it to be loaded with fucked-upness. In that aspect the book delivered.

    I like how Ethan played his role in the story. He served his purpose. However I couldn't feel his soul (it doesn't matter the positive or negative aspect of it) therefore I didn't know him well enough. I would love to dig his character more to the core.

    Emma was thrown into difficult situations throughout the book. While I'm not a fan of her, I could appreciate how her character evolved showing her strengths and weaknesses.

    I am very particular when it comes to dark contents. This book satisfied my dark and depraved needs in the physical aspect, but not quite there in term of psychological aspect.

    The Director is a story of adapting for survival. It would appeal to readers who like to cross into the dark side.

  • Selene

    This isn’t one of those books that you read for pure enjoyment.

    This is one of those stories where you simply observe the gore, chaos, narcissism, depravity, and lack of humanity unfold right before your very eyes!

    This story will shock and anger you, but you won’t be able to stop reading, either.

    Yes.

    DNF at 55%

    I liked the beginning, it was dark; but now story became soooo boring I just can't continue reading!

    Yesterday I struggled whole afternoon and managed to read only 10 pages; today I managed only 3 pages, so I think it's time to close my e-reader even though I am corious what would happen at the end :(
