Book 1, Kick. 120pg ebook
“A party girl with a permanent smile and spread legs. A balls-to-the-walls princess with an entourage and two wrecked Bentley's in the garage.”
Kick, the first book in Songs of Perdition series and part of the Bend anthology isn't what I was expecting.
CD's story telling is always flawless, she drags you into her world and makes you feel every raw and compelling emotion that is shared between those pages, Kick is no exception.
This is set back 10 years before SOS, back around the time Jonathan's then girlfriend Rachel disappeared. We also get a little insight into Daddy Drazen, something I am hoping we get some more back story there.
Fiona Drazen, the wild child of the 8 Drazen's has lived a crazy life, seeing and experiencing more than most at only 23 years old. She has woken in Westonwood Acres, a mental institution and with no memory of how or why she is there, all she knows is she wants Deacon. The man she stabbed, landing her the stylish gray room at the facility.
“He was my safety. My Master. My control. The hub on the wheel of my life.
without him the spokes didn't meet.”
This story takes place over a three day period where Fiona tries to fill in the black spots of her memory with the help of the good Doctor, Elliot, the man who is able to give her what she wants, her freedom. That is if he believes she isn't a danger to herself or to others.
Under hypnosis, we are taken back to points in Fiona's life in hopes to fill in the gaps, these scenes leave her admitting to herself that she is an addict, that she has problems and that she needs to change. Easier said than done.
“I knew who I was. I was a celebrity without talent. I was an heiress. I was a whore.
I was a party waiting to happen. I was an addict.
I was His, and in that last definition-- that I was owned by Deacon. I knew my place in this chaos.”
Fiona has learnt to cope with her emotions one of two way, snorting them away with coke, or fucking them away with cock. Either way, she doesn't know how to deal and process life's problems and that is only replaced by knotting when her Master, her love enters her life.
“I always felt at peace when He knotted me. But this time, He became part of the work, my very identity and all the anxiety that came with it melted away.”
With all of her coping mechanisms taken away, a few outbursts, and rule breaking, how will Fiona uncover the truth and be free of Westonwood Acres or will Elliot keep her locked up for longer, digging deeper into the mind of the wild Drazen, uncovering what set her on this life path.
In Kick, we only just touch the surface of Fiona's intense and heated story, not to mention, we are delving deeper into the Drazen world of lies, secrets, and of course, panty-dropping sex!
We are in for a long wait for the next in the SOP series.
