Once you enter, anything goes. No fantasy—however dark and dirty and depraved it may be—is forbidden. You have no past, no inhibitions, no morals…and no memory.
All you have to cling to is the memory of a scorching touch, a searing kiss, the wet slide of skin on skin, and the heat of breath across your flesh.
Turn the knob…
Step through the fifth door...
The Black Room: Door Five by Jasinda Wilder is part of a serial and definitely should be read in order.
This review will be short since I didn’t enjoy this door. The story didn’t hold my attention so I put it down for a bit and promptly forgot everything that had happened in this particular scenario, so I had to restart it. I struggled to finish.
It takes place during another historical setting, but in this one, Conrad is a king of some kind and Hannah is promised to someone else. Like many of the other doors, this one relies heavily on sex to propel the story, but there’s quite a bit of violence and war in this, which I don’t enjoy reading at all.
Much of my enjoyment of this series has been in the mystery of what exactly The Black Room is, but with all the repetitive sex scenes, the focus seems to shift at times to how graphic the book can be. Like Door Four, Door Five is missing some much-needed emotion, which would give the explicit sex scenes some context and meaning. Unfortunately, I found this installment lacking.
