Frankie and Maxim

This book was really something else but so good. If you are looking for something really dark, this is it. I have read some books that claim to be dark, but really were not. I was fully invested in this book from the beginning to the end. Frankie is struggling to pay the rent, keep food on the table, and care for her siblings. Her mother is a no good loser. She works at Penney’s, at a diner, and is also a prostitute. Her pimp gives her a card to meet Maxim. Since she really needs the money, she accepts. Wow is all I can say about what he expects of her. During Maxim’s first meeting with Frankie, he gives her $1,000. She was to get her affairs in order, then stay with him initially three days and eventually five days a week. Frankie goes out and buys things for the kids and was so dumb, she let the kids think their mother bought the gifts. She used the money Maxim gave her for them and she did not correct them.

There is a restaurant scene that was something else. People in the restaurant acted like nothing was going on. Maxim is one sick b@stard but I think Frankie is just as bad. He wants her to sign a contract to be with him. In the restaurant, he has her fully read the contract and give him her safe word all while she is spread-eagle across his lap and nude from the waist down. If she uses the safe word, it is all over. At his place, she has her own room because she needs to be available to him at all times. Maxim wants to hurt Frankie but will pay her handsomely to it. As dark romance goes, this was extremely dark and does not disappoint. A lot happens in this book. Unfortunately, there are two additional books to this story and neither of those are on Audible yet.

Zara Eden did a great job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Dark🤎...

I love dark romance and this one is very dark. This is the first book I've listened to by Lana Sky and I'm excited to see if her other books are as dark. She didn't hold back, never did I think she could have went darker. I already shared in my Dark romance group because the ladies were just saying how books say dark but aren't really. they will be happy with this one. I also liked the characters, Frankie is just trying to do her best but life is cruel but it looks like its about to get better. I can't wait to listen and find out. Zara Eden did an amazing job with voices. Everyone had a unique voice and it made listening a good experience.

Amazing listen

I love when an author can take me out of my comfort zone and keep me riveted. Lana Sky does it every time with her dark romances. Each has a component that just makes me cringe, but I have to know what is going to happen! This is the first in her Club XXX series, and Frankie and Maxim are featured. Frankie takes care of her siblings while her mother is out, searching for her next fix and husband. She resorts to prostitution and is offered a contract that will set her up for the next year. But is it a contract she can keep? Maxim is a dark soul. Very demanding, super alpha, and a dom like no other. Will Frankie find the strength to fulfill the contract? This book is dark and at times made me cringe. It's addicting and had my curiosity. Both Frankie and Maxim are broken, and with their fetishes are well matched. I can't wait to see where Sky takes these two next.

Zara Eden is amazing with this narration. She is spot on for each character, her Russian accent fantastic. I enjoyed her performance and look forward to book 2!

Disturbing Dark Romance

Lana has written one seriously twisted dark romance that has some major triggers that many readers / listeners will find disturbing.

Maxim, the main character revels in inflicting pain due to his own tormented past but his chosen victim has her own issues.

Please be aware that this book does not conclude Maxim's story....

If you are a fan of Authors like Anna Zaires and Lili Valente then this book is for you....

Intense story

These two have feelings for is another but it’s lost in all the pain and heartache. She’s just trying to make a good life for her siblings and he’s refusing to want more. This is a very intense book that I just couldn’t quit listening to! The narrator did a great job bringing out the emotions!

It’s so dark you’re going to need a flashlight

Dark y’all. I’m not taking a little bullying and a little violence. I’m taking deep dark depravity here. So if you have triggers, of any kind, this books is absolutely not for you. But if you want to get lost in the depths of a twisted hell then come on over. Sadist in the true sense of the word is on full peacock display and the omg, wtf and jaw dropping wow moments are all present. This isn’t a sweet love story. There’s not a hearts and flowers end but it’s a captivating suck you in the go darkness can’t stop listening read. It is not the most f-Ed up book I have read but it’s close, this ends on a cliffhanger so I reserve the right to change my mind as the series progresses. The narrator did great on all but the kid voices. I snickered every time but the rest spot on!

It is not about the sex but two lost souls trying to survive.

Intense, Dark & Stunning

This is only the first book in what looks to be one dark and twisted ride. If you are the type of reader/listener that is looking for warmth, sweetness and cuddles; my advice is for you to keep looking. This is definitely not the book for you. However, if you enjoy books that embrace the darkness and everything that can entail, this book is exactly what you've been craving. This story offers wickedly sharp edges, a raw grittiness and a viciously harsh reality. Maxim and Frankie are both so incredibly broken. If you are anything like me, your heart will cry and ache for them. The attraction and chemistry is intensely powerful and scorching hot!! This totally consuming tale will leave you wondering if love and affection will be their salvation or lead to their ultimate destruction. A sinfully enticing read that will have you needing that next book ASAP!. I found the narrators voice pleasing and their performance very well done.

Twisted and Addicting

Is there any character more addicting than Maxim. The supreme of Dark Romances, Submit is the beginning of a trilogy to end all trilogies. The narrator does an excellent job of bringing to life the difficult characters.

Dark and WOW

Loved the narration of Zara Eden just perfect for this book .


If you do not like dark romance then turn away , if you do well sit back and listen.

Maxim and Frankie's story is dark, intense, and brutal in parts . Maxim is ruthless, alpha, dominant, and a sadistic mafia billionaire. Frankie is , masochistic, strong, and determined.

4.5!

This was my first time listening to this narrator or reading anything from this author. They did not disappoint. Lana was able to bring so much depth and realness into the characters and Zara brought them to life with her voice. This is a dark romance as mentioned in the blurb, but it was much darker than anything I have ever read before. There is self-harm and consensual inflicted harm, and if blood and harshness is not your thing then this will not be the book for you. It was disturbing, yet I couldn’t turn it off and I was so invested and still liked the overall story. I have already downloaded the second book and will be starting it tonight while at work! So excited to see where the story will go.   I received this audio book at my request and am voluntarily leaving a review.

3.5 Stars Overall

My favorite genre is dark romance so I was quite excited when I started listening to this. It had my attention during the whole story but Maxim was just brutal and all he wanted to do was inflict pain on Frankie. He was not at all likable to me. Frankie endured all the pain and suffering by choice and kept going back for more but the story wasn't erotic or sexy like most of the dark romance I listen to so I'm not sure if I would continue with this series or not. Zara Eden did an amazing job bringing this story to life. #AudiobooksUnleashedVIPReviewer
