They call me a slut. Maybe I am.
Sometimes I do things I despise.
Sometimes men take without asking.
But I have a musical gift, only a year left of high school, and a plan.
With one obstacle.
Emeric Marceaux doesn’t just take.
He seizes my will power and bangs it like a dark note.
When he commands me to play, I want to give him everything.
I kneel for his punishments, tremble for his touch, and risk it all for our stolen moments.
He’s my obsession, my master, my music.
And my teacher.
Dark Notes by Pam Godwin is a darkish forbidden student/teacher romance.
Ivory Westbrook is a seventeen year old protege attending a prestigious private high school. She is from the wrong side of the tracks, dealing with poverty, abuse and has high hopes of getting into her dream school after graduation.
Emeric Marcaux, her new teacher, enters her life with a potential of crushing her dream.
He is rich, a famous pianist, heir to millions and the newest faculty member of Le Moyne Academy.
He also hides secrets, secrets that could potentially destroy them both.
The moment they meet there is this incredible pull and amazing chemistry.
“She’s in my veins, fiery and weightless. She’s in my head, like a whisper of promises. She’s in my heart, softening it, mending it, and making it pump again.”
As they both fight the attraction, we learn more about the back stories of both characters. Ivory’s incredible strength while facing the cruelty of her reality makes her resistance to Emeric nonexistent. It’s as if they were notes from the start that were meant to be making music, forbidden music together.
Emeric has been hurt and betrayed, and with his student’s innocence and eagerness to learn and please, he once again becomes the master.
“He fills so many voids in my life, and my desire for him only knits me closer, tighter to a world I’ve only dreamed about. A world where I interact with a man because I want to, because he cares about me as much as I care about him.”
Emeric and Ivory’s sexual exploration into darker intimacy will leave you blushing.
They heal each other’s broken parts through touches and kisses, forbidden and hidden.
They create a sonata of soft melodies of exploration mixed with the dark desires of their souls. It’s a music only they can hear as they slowly and deeply connect their hearts.
Will their sacrifices be enough at the end? Or will the forbidden fruit poison their love and bring down their heaven on earth?
I guess you will have to read to find out!!!
