Review ❤️ Follow Me Darkly by Helen Hardt

September 30, 2020

I’ve always been a control freak. But he makes me crave submission…

Working for a hotel heiress and social media influencer may not be my dream job, but at least it allows me time to do what I really love—take photographs. Pretty good for a wholesome farm girl from Kansas trying to make it in Boston. Life may not be easy working for a diva, but at least I know what to expect.

Until blue-collar billionaire Braden Black strides into the office. He’s beyond handsome and sexy, but also domineering with a definite hard edge. I’m not sure why he’s interested in me, but within a few weeks, he’s showing me a world I never knew existed.

He’s opened up a side of me I can only face in the dark, and it’s quickly becoming an obsession. How can I give up something this addictive—even if his secrets could ultimately destroy me?

Skye Manning
is working as a photographer for Addie Ames, an heiress and social media influencer. She helps Addie stages selfies and handles whatever minor office work for her. When a recent post goes viral and garners the attention of billionaire Braden Black everything in Skye’s world shifts upside down.

Starts out a bit 50 Shades of Gray-ish which scared me because I’m not a big fan of those types of stories but I came to like both characters and enjoyed where the story went.  Braden is not like most billionaire. He comes across a bit cold but you can see it is just his style to keep people away. He is a self made man and knows exactly what he wants.

Skye is very organized and in control of her life. Being with Braden pushes her control to levels that she is uncomfortable with but can’t help wanting. She has never experienced any sexual experience as intense as she has with Braden. The only problem is that she wants more but a man like him doesn’t do relationships or does he?

I know some my label this BDSM and elements of it does fall into it. It is still a bit more on the tame side. Braden expresses some of his kinkier thoughts but they don’t actually play out just yet. I look forward to seeing how far they both will go. How dark is too dark?

The sex scenes are passionate and intense. I like how Skye held onto her control but knew when to let go.

The mystery around Braden and some of the other characters keeps the story flowing. I just wish that we got a few more answers. The story ends on a cliffhanger and I’m wondering why this story could not have been told in one book.

Despite the rocky start, I became invested. As mentioned, earlier there is a cliffhanger but I want to know what happens next.
