REVIEW - Degradation (The Kane Trilogy #1) by Stylo Fantôme

Title: Degradation (The Kane Trilogy #1)
Author: Stylo Fantôme
Publisher: Battleaxe Productions
Release Date: 21 July 2014
Series or Standalone: Series
Genre: Erotica

Eighteen year old Tatum O'Shea is a naive, shy, little rich girl. Twenty-three year old Jameson Kane is smart, seductive, and richer. They come together for one night, one explosion, one mistake, and Tate is hurled into space – no family, no money, and no Jameson.

Seven years later, life is going pretty good for Tate, when she runs into Jameson again. This time, she thinks she's ready for him. She doesn't have a naive bone left in her body, and she can't even remember what shy feels like. Jameson has evolved into Satan – sharp teeth, sharper claws, and a tongue that can cut her in half. It all sounds like fun to a girl like Tate, and she is ready to play, determined to prove that she isn't the same girl he conquered once before. A series of games start, each one more devious than the last.

But the devil likes to play dirty, and she learns that playing for souls is playing for keeps. The lines between games and reality, heaven and hell, get blurry. Can she beat Jameson at his own game before someone gets hurt? Or will he leave her soulless, making him the winner, once and for all?

WARNING: contains a wannabe B-rate porn star, an impersonal personal assistant, and the F-word, A LOT. Also graphic sexual situations and sadomasochistic themes.


This book, I don't know if there are words for me to accurately describe this story, other than a bombshell mindfuck that I just didn't want to end. Huh, I guess there are words to describe this story.

The characters are so well-developed in this story, it's literally easy to feel the emotions that each one of them is feeling. At the beginning of the story, Tatum does display a certain amount of naiveté, almost to the point where you want to shake some common sense into her head. But she grows up and matures extremely quick by the end of the prologue, which takes place seven years prior to the start of the story.

Jameson Kane is a man you will equally love and hate. When he is reintroduced in the book, I thought he might have changed a bit from his behavior in the prologue, but nope, he's just the opposite, you might find yourself wanting to run as far from him as you can, but sweet baby cheezits, you'll want to run from him AFTER he's turned you out 17 different ways.

The relationship that's not a relationship will leave not knowing whether you're coming (pun intended) or going, and you'll experience the highs and definitely the lows (the last three chapters are somewhat brutal), so be prepared to have the next book ready to read because you will definitely want to know what happens next.
