A stranger online. Dark hair and even dark8er eyes that knew my dirty desires before I did.
A fantasy that should never be spoken. But he pulled the confession from me.
And now he’s coming for me.
Rough. Dirty. Dangerous.
It’s supposed to be one night to get me off and make me forget.
He’ll make me his and I’ll pretend I don’t want him to.
I’ll run and he’ll chase.
Because I asked him for this.
I begged him for this.
Tonight, in the darkness, he’s the hunter.
And I’m the bait.
- Jade has increasingly less to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s happy with this fact.
- Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted.
- Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile.
- She lives in the Herefordshire countryside with a couple of hounds and a guy who’s able to cope with her inherent weirdness.
- She has a red living room, decorated with far more zebra print than most people could bear and fights a constant battle with her addiction to Coca-Cola.

The heart palpitating , speedracing story of Monsters that come out to play at night , and the little girls who are baits , sometimes get more than they bargain for. Monsters in fantasies are less scarier than the Beasts that exist in real life ! Who the real beast is , is just a manner of perception
"The bait using a decoy to snare the hunter. beasts come after bait."
Jade has the bravado to delve into the dark world of kinks and fetishes , which most Dark Authors lack. She's educated me enough on some very weird elements of BDSM sex. This book explores Chase Fetish /Fantasy. It's not a recreational activity, it's because Abigail is troubled by her nightmare where her monster chases her through the forest. He's supersize , ominous , and pounces her no matter how fast she runs. And every night she sweats and screams through her nightmare. She's a transplant in Hereford due to her failed relationship earlier.
"My dirty soul must be a beacon to other dirty souls out for a good time. It’s always like this. They must smell it on me. Taste it on the air. Hone into the fucked-up frequencies of freaks like me."
So she decides to take the bull by the horns, so to speak, and indulge in one night stand of Chase Fantasy with a random stranger . No strings attached !!
The first time she gets cold feet. But hunting online , she meets Leo Scott -Her Monster.
"I’m seeking my monster in the darkness. I’ll run but you’ll run faster. We’ll play cat and mouse until you catch me. I won’t know you, and I’ll pretend I don’t want to. You’ll pretend you don’t care. I’ll tell you I don’t want it. You’ll tell me you’ll take it anyway, and then you will. And it’ll be rough. One wild night where anything goes, and then we’ll never see each other again."
They partake in their fantasies multiple times , in a safe & sane , controlled environment , and decide to part the next day. But the obsession and infatuation takes root , and rest as they say is runaway history.
Leo /Phoenix is hiding some skeletons in his closet too and he's carrying an excessive baggage of failed marriage, missing wife, vengeful addict of a brother , an elective mute boy , trauma, a sister stuck in between, loneliness and guilt .
It's like their lives mirror each other with loneliness and betrayal the common denominating factor. So they hear the woes, see the bleeding hearts and turn to chasing monsters to heal together!
"I loved hard. I lost harder. And then I lost everything along with him. My job. My home. So many people I cared about. Then I lost the baby too. I bled my soul out with the life inside me. Bled so hard I nearly disappeared too. My world spat me out and kept on turning without me. It was too painful to stay, so I ran. And here I am, just trying to make a new life. It’s hard. It’s really, really hard."
The twist in the story is intriguing
two things bothered me though
when indulging in rough, hard chase fetish, neither establish a safeword. Its brutal, hurtful sex and obviously NO means carry on , cause they're role playing. So how would they stop!
Secondly , there wasn't much depth in Jame's and Abi's story. Leo's character was outlined super crisp.
But a Jade story is always "push the envelope" in the kinky world, so I'm her ardent fan !!
I loved the concept and execution . I loved Leo, he's very mysterious and aloofish kind .
