Comments THORNE: Rose's Dark Contract

  • J. Kahele

    Thorne is a man who gets what he wants, when he wants and whenever he wants. When he puts his sights on a waitress named Victoria, there is nothing going to stop him from making her his personal assistant. The requirement to be his personal assistant, however, is not just book work or making appointments, it is to submit to him sexually and completely. Victoria is not aware of what lies in the sadistic mind of Thorne and when he offers her the position she takes, not even knowing that she ready [...]


  • Jonmontanavega

    Well, the author wasn't sure I would like her book so I did an end-run and bought it. I'm very glad I did; let me see if I can explain why without spoilers.This is yet another 'rich guy purchases (or finds some other way to acquire) the services of a young woman because he can't be bothered to find a woman the old fashioned way who likes / is willing to tolerate his sexual preferences and needs without a quid pro quo (such as marriage) he finds odious' novel. Of course, we all know where this pl [...]


  • Expresso-Girls Just Wanna Have Books; A Mafia Romance

    Decent sex scenes. Thorne was whipped from the beginning! Guessed 20% in he didn't have the will to be a sadistic jerk. Dark romance? Ummmm no. Victoria cried every other sentence. She's 25 years old and the story continually harped on her nativity and her big natural tits! Jennifer, the doctor, is funny! Please consider other reviews if deciding to purchase. I've read many dark romance novels so my expectations may be a tad darker than what the author was aiming for in this story. I will try ag [...]


  • Lilah

    Ever since I started having erotic fantasies most of them included some form of sexual corruption and unraveling. These are also some of my favorite pieces of writing but it is difficult to find a dark story that doesn’t involve non-consent, kidnapping and extreme conditioning/brainwashing. R.B. O’Brien definitely knows how to write a romantic story of a taboo relationship involving the corruption of innocence, domination, submission, kink and unexpected love. Her characters are usually dama [...]


  • B.E.L.L.A.Mc

    I didn't enjoy this and gave up at 15%. It was cliched: old and tired. Wooden characters; 1D - flat. William; totally moronic. Nothing original; everything predictable. I wouldn't recommend it if you like dark and delicious. :(


  • Michael Dalton

    If you read the author's "Natalie's Edge" series, which I enjoyed immensely, you may be expecting another tormented romance between two deeply flawed and confused people. That's what we get here, but with some new twists.Thorne is not the Michael of Natalie's Edge. He's darker, more cryptic, with more secrets. He's spent his life using women and throwing them away, and not in a figurative sense—his preferred relationship is what he calls his "personal assistant," a woman who agrees to serve hi [...]


  • R.B. O'Brien

    Rose's Dark Contract is the first in the series THORNE and follows the inner thoughts and feelings of the main character, William Thorne. He has a dark past and has built his life without personal attachment. He is a troubled character who has been through an event that is hinted at and he believes he is a monster as a result of it. But as you read, you will see that the vision he holds of himself is not entirely true and it takes an innocent, Victoria Rose, to pull it out of him, but not before [...]


  • C.P. Mandara

    "I don't want you to understand me." William ThorneOh, this is the perfect from rags to riches story - with benefits! Okay, so William Thorne isn’t a particularly likeable character to begin with. I guess I’d call him an anti-hero - but dayum is the guy sexy. When he drops into Victoria’s coffee shop, she’s immediately flustered. When he continues to visit her, things go from hot and steamy to molten very quickly. He whisks her away from her dreary life of drudgery and deposits her in hi [...]

    DNF @ 27%.This book was awful. The h is a complete doormat that lets the H treat her like dirt. He appears obsessed with the h and gives her a job working for him. He takes her virginity and the next day sleeps with another woman to show the h that she means nothing to him. Really disgusting.


  • Lola8

    I received the book in exchange for a review from BDSM TPE BAR Program. I will also be reviewing Book 2 - THORNE: Rose's Dark Secret***3.5 stars***I enjoyed this intro into William Thorne's and Victoria Rose's dark contract. William is rich, dominating, organized and likes to have his kinky ways with his women and Victoria is a waitress, struggling and innocently alluring but as the story unfolds her petals start to fall. When William meets his rose Victoria waitressing at her workplace, he is [...]


  • Zak Hardacre

    Wow!!! Never having read any literature of this nature. I was surprised in how the main character Thorne drew me in. The main female character Victoria is shy and a 'true' innocent, the perfect new assistant for the sadistic Thorne.I found it compelling how the author who is female, was speaking in the first person of Thorne. This is not an easy thing to do in my humble opinion, and one that she carries off with great ease.The story itself is dark in nature, but strangely compelling. The insecur [...]


  • Chloe Thurlow

    It is essential for a writer to develop, to extend themselves, to go to the edge and then take a leap – of faith, into the unknown. Anything but keep digging in the same hole. That’s is what RB O’Brien has done with ‘Thorne: Rose's Dark Contract.’ Again, we find flawed, complex characters well-drawn and multi-dimensional, but the mood is more edgy, the writing more compelling.The ‘dark contract’ is drawn up by Thorne – a man who admits from the off that he is ‘a monster,’ a d [...]


  • Mandi

    Wow!! R.B. O'Brien has done it again!!! She captivates you and pulls you into the story from the first page. It is hard to put this story down!! This is the first book in her new series Thorne. This story is much darker than the Natalie's Edge Series, but in my opinion it's just as good if not better!!William is a troubled and controling character. He certainly takes your emotions on a rollercoaster from hate to lust in just a few lines! He is darkness and Victoria is light. Her innocence, youth [...]


  • LeeAnna Lane

    Book ReviewIn this book you find a man who has become what he considers a monster. He has developed his sex life into what he needs to survive in his life as a billionaire who works to destroy the tobacco industry. In the book we find that he finds himself falling for the women he has made his personal assistant/lover. He has determined he can't love anyone , can he? But then he decides he does love her. Before he can tell her he hears her talking on the phone about him. It seems she has been hi [...]


  • Wendi Hunsicker

    What can I say about this book but WOW! R.b has a way of making you love her dark characters, and I absolutely loved this book. She has you reading about this lifestyle in a whole different level. She shows the dark side of this in a way that in indescribable but she also shows us the trials and tribulations of what happens when they over step their bounds and fall for their partner.William Thorne is a very rich, powerful and dominating male that is as tough as stones. Victoria Rose is a sweet v [...]


  • K.T. McColl

    It's not easy to sympathize completely with the two protagonists of Rose's Dark Contract. William Thorne is a self-professed sadist while the object of his desires, Victoria Rose, is hopelessly out of her element. Both characters are alternately confused, compromised, and conflicted, which is exactly as it should be.In less skillful hands, the narrative would be limited to the seduction of a weak woman at the hand of a more powerful, determined man. But R.B. O'Brien inserts just enough subtext t [...]


  • Michelle Brace (Wicked Babes Blog Reviews)

    I enjoyed this book and I really look forward to reading more. I sincerely hope that this isn't the end to this couple's story. I really disliked Thorne as a person through about 95% of this story but it was a case of love to hate you and hate to love you. UGH he was so infuriating. I can't wait to get more of his background story and why he is the way he is. Then Victoria reveals some through the story but there is more to her and she really drops a bomb at the end of this story that completely [...]


  • Naya Free

    R.B. O'Brien writes a beautiful tale about two lovers lost in their past, unknowingly finding true love, wrapped in domination, which frees each of their tortured souls. The ending promises to shock and excite at the same time, so much that the reader cannot wait for the next instalment Thorne: Rose's Dark Secret. Truly, I enjoyed the slow seductive revelation by this skillful writer, who presents amazing BDSM scenes that are light in torture, but heavy with ravishing emotions. Reading how Rose [...]


  • AutumnRaynne

    Wow! That is the first word that comes to mind when reading RB O'Brien's latest book. Steamy hot sex pervades this charming tale of a womanizing alpha male, William Thorne and his latest conquest, Victoria. Thorne is what you would expect from an alpha and Victoria is the naive, sexy young woman or is she? Spellbinding sex scenes are carefully woven throughout this tale of the darker side of romance. I don't want to give too much of the plot away but there is a fabulous twist at the end that lef [...]


  • Nola Arganbright

    Thorne is self made success with a sadistic streak. Victoria is a waitress with too much innocence and not his usual type for his personal PA and the dark contract.I found this book was so well written that I was able to completely immerse myself in the story not stopping until I had read the entire book. I loved the characters. They are full of personality and depth. The story certainty has issues of darkness but there are also moments that the darkness begins to fade. I was often challenged by [...]


  • Cree Nations

    One of the best reads for me this year. I fell madly, passionately and lustfully for Thorne. He is one of the most fascinating lead male characters I've encountered in a very long time. He is absolutely perfect in his imperfections. His attraction for Victoria is unsurmountable in that he does not want to have it - he fights it - he fights her - but most of all he fights himself. He suffers a pain of his own creation with his Rose - as well all know every rose has her thorns.


  • Lucas Black

    Great story with a powerful cliff-hanger, and I'm looking forward to more offerings in this series about a man tortured by his past and his self-perception, a man who finds himself loving a woman when he thought he was incapable of love, and a woman who may not be quite as she appears. Keep 'em coming!


  • Thai Holman

    Wow was not expecting this to be so amazing. Loved it. It's a short read but so much into it. Loved this story and O'Brien definitely hit it in this one. This was a brilliant start to a series and can't wait for more. It's a definite one click.


  • Bonnie S Rhodes

    Oh my goodnessWhat a freaking good book,these guys R.B writes about are down right dark men. Her stories are so full of dark and I loved every minute of it. One thing I didn't like is now I have to wait for the next book. Ughhhhhhhh


  • Marie Blue

    This is a millionaire bad boy who is felled by the love of a naive virgin story. This is told from the perspective of the man, Thorne, so that makes it a little different.I felt that Thorne was too broody and concerned with his dark, sadistic tendencies for what his proclivities actually were. I also didn't like that his main focus on Victoria Rose was her physical beauty. Page after page of Thorne focusing on her attributes with the occasional mention of her intelligence, but no actual evidence [...]


  • Cynthia Cordell

    Oh wow!! This is my first book by R.B. O'Brien and let me tell you what, what a fantastic read I couldn't put it down only when I just really had to lol! William is a sadistic man who's sole enjoyment is to be in control, He see's Veronica and wants to make her his Only, through out the book there is a battle he faces, does he want to keep her or does he let her go to being what she was before their arrangement was made However with the battle he faces only to find a surprise twist has him losin [...]


  • Maggie May

    This is a well crafted book about two interesting characters. A man who calls himself a sadist finds himself falling in love with a young pianist. Whose heart will get broken first?


  • Metalkarin

    Actually a 3.5 rateIf you think Christian Grey is an insensitive bastard, come and meet William Thorne.Once again a story about an older, rich and dominant man and a younger naive (virgin) girl. This book was provided by the author through the BDSM Group TPE BAR in exchange for an honest reviewThere are similarities with other books of this theme (like FSOG) but also things that makes this one different. At first there is the language used and the literary skills of R.B. O'Brien. As English isn' [...]

    R.B.Obrian. / Thorn: Rose's Dark Contract (book 1)********** If I could give this book that many stars I would, what journey we where taken on This book is intense, I had to read it twice before I could even try to give justice to a review. Very well written The character development was done beautifully, that gradual build that gives you time and space to get to know them, feel them, be apart of there lives To want them or be them. A true gifted author is able to make you feel their pain thei [...]


  • Cally

    This is the first time that i have read from this author and going by this book it wont be the last if i could just put WOW as my review i would but i dint think it would give this book or the author the justice that it so clearly deserves.WE meet William Thorne he is a rich, powerful man but he's had a troubled past that still haunts him to this day and to top it off he has dark needs that needs to be fulfilled and doesn't care much for how the woman feels as long as his needs are fulfilled.
