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 sixth door...
The Black Room: Door Six by Jasinda Wilder is part of a serial and definitely should be read in order.
This door reads a lot like Outlander, reimagined as an erotic romance. There are similar elements: Scottish warrior with a price on his head, evil English soldiers trying to capture him, lead female character who finds herself in peril and in need of rescue.
Like Door Five, there’s quite a bit of graphic violence in this story, which I personally don’t enjoy reading. So, reader beware if that’s not your thing, either.
At this point, I’ve read six doors in this collection, and I never thought I would say this about a book, but there’s almost too much sex and not enough substance. At the end of this book–six installments in–we’re just now starting to get a clear explanation for who Hannah and Conrad are and how they could possibly exist in so many different scenarios. I’m glad that the puzzle pieces are starting to fit, but a constant throughout this series thus far has been the presence of so many sex scenes without any context.
Don’t get me wrong–Jasinda Wilder writes great sex scenes. But for me, I need some back story to understand why these people are so hot for each other and an explanation for why they can’t live without the other person.
Also, I’m eager to leave the doors that have a historical setting and move back into the contemporary world.
Now that some answers are being introduced, I’m looking forward to seeing how this will end and how the different doors all tie together.
