Review: Enter the Black Oak by Monique Edenwood

Goodreads Blurb

Falling for a man like Jackson Wilder was not something I had planned.

He was wild, experienced and savagely beautiful. He was also damaged and dangerous. Our love was a cosmic collision of lust and obsession that left me scorched by exquisite flames of desire and domination.

Jack possessed me. He educated me. Loving him was the greatest pleasure I’d ever known… up until the moment I discovered the dark secrets he had been hiding.

I could never have imagined that pulling myself out of the agony of betrayal would lead me to reconnect with a former friend, Cameron O’Neill, scion of one of Manhattan’s wealthiest and most powerful dynasties, and sworn enemy of Jack.

Cameron’s craving for me was acute. The relentless force of his devastating masculine beauty and his powerful, controlled virility was dizzying. Desire colored his fierce gaze. I knew it was wrong. Jack would never allow it. I had to do everything within my power to resist him, even when he pulled me down the rabbit hole where I uncovered dark truths about Manhattan’s most secret society that led me to the brink of madness… 

My Review: Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This book will grasp your attention from the very first chapter. It’s intense, thrilling, frightening and suspenseful all in one. The story does have heavy BDSM scenes, so it might not be a book for everyone. I must say I dislike so many characters. As you keep reading you find more characters you want to smack them to Pluto.

If I was married to Jackson I would have left as quickly as I could. What a cheating rich jerk who is sexy hot and thinks he owns people. Then comes Cameron who can possibly be his twin, rich and hot. He has some softer characteristics, but it seems like his bed manners replicate Jackson’s. The story is almost like a love triangle. Jessynia has no backbone to stand up to these dominating men. I am hoping to see some turning events and see Jessynia standup for herself and get back at all of them. Vengeance from the sweet wife would be epic. I need queen bee taken down and her little dirty secrets shared to the world.

Monique is an amazing storyteller. The plot was thought out and worked so well with the story. The flow of the story was great. I loved that each character had some background information to brief the reader to why the characters act the way they do. I will tell you I was so upset when I was left hanging at the end of the story, since there is a continuation. Just when the book got so good you are left hanging with the pieces remaining. Just for this reason you know the book was very good. Looking forward to see what happens next.
