Tour hosted by: Love Between The Sheets
The name's V. I'm beautiful in every sense of the word physically. But on the inside, I'm a black pit.
If you're expecting a happily ever after, a white picket fence and 2.5 kids; then this isn't the story for you.
There aren't any happily ever afters in the works for me or those whose lives I poison.
I hold the key to my pleasure and I'll be damned if I ever give it up again.
God forsake those that stand in my way of ultimate gratification.
You may regret me, but you'll never forget me.
Use or Be Used, there are no other options.

5 MAJORLY RAUNCHY, HOT STARS!
Where to start, where to start. I LOVED this novella! It was dirty... It was HOT (I'm talking melt the elastic in your panties hot)... It was messed up. There was not one single second where I did not love this story. The cover completely drew me in, and the blurb sounded so different from all the stories I have read. USED was a very short novella, but it made the best out of its pages. I could not put it down. The book was written as if V (the main character) was talking to you, which was a pretty neat concept. V is a drop dead gorgeous girl who knows she can have men, and women, eating out of the palm of her hand... and she LOVES sex and isn't ashamed to admit it. She does not settle down, and never stays in one place, or with one man, for longer that a few weeks. Her character had me intrigued from the beginning, and left me wanting to know more. Her story was not that of love, rainbows, puppies and all things happy. There was a very complex and disturbing feel to her the entire story.
"I don't want to get into niceties, as my story isn't something I want you to remember. There is no happily ever after for me or for the lives of the people I poison."
Hot and steamy does not even begin to describe the sex scenes in the book (which was about 90% of the story!). I swear, this girl, V, has absolutely no shame, and has one hell of a sex drive! Then again, so do the two main conquests of hers. The main part of the story takes place in less than 24 hours, and I honestly lost track of all the places V had sexual encounters in... each one hotter than the last. Reading certain parts was almost like living out some of my fantasies, as there was such vivid descriptions you could almost visualize everything going on.
"You're not going to break me, baby. That's been done long ago."
USED was NOT your typical erotica. Despite all the sex, this story was so much more than just that... so much more involved. It kept you on your toes wondering the inner workings of V's mind. Just when you think you have her all figured out... BAM you are completely blindsided, and get hit with such a complete mindfuck it leaves you begging for more...NEEDING more! I was surprised with just how intense such a short story could be. And holy unexpected turn of events! I totally did not see that ending coming at all! I really loved how at the end, the author showed the two other characters POV of the ending. It did not feel like I was re-reading what I just read, and really added to the intensity of the story. There was one thing, and only one thing which bothered me. Who the hell was the man that was mentioned in the beginning? It seemed like he was possibly an important part of the story, but he was never explained, or mentioned again throughout the book... I am hoping as other books come out, they will go back and explain what part he plays in V's story. Put this on your MUST READ list, because USED is one book you do NOT want to miss.
