I am a huge fan of dystopian book worlds so I jumped on this story the moment I saw Addison was putting it out. The characters are repulsive and raw, showing the real grit and grim of the new world they are living in and it can be brutal at times. It chills me to the bone to imagine a world where these things actually take place. True to Addison's writing style, she leaves very little to the imagination, not walking the line of deplorable but happily leaping right over it. The Captain is a very interesting character who I definitely spent a decent amount of time yelling at in my head. I know some readers had a hard time connecting to Eugenia but, for me, I understood her struggles and fight. She did what she had to do and even though this love story is not perfect or everyone’s cup of tea, I felt like it was so accurately portrayed in the environment it was born into. There is desire, lust, unspeakable actions, and at times uncontrollable anger, but man, it makes for some good reading!

“The only woman who will ride this cock is you.”

She wasn’t lying when she said she was having fun. The only fun around the ship was at his expense. “I’m flattered. I’m also not interested.”

So he doubled down. “I said I wouldn’t fuck you tonight. But that doesn’t mean that now I don’t plan to tie you down and do the tongue thing until you apologize.”

She came, drenching his hand, and fairly certain she was an inch away from the afterlife. It went on and on as he did things no southern gentleman should. A pirate until she begged him to stop and he still refused. Orgasms shouldn’t last so long. And no lady should saturate the coverlet while a pirate ate her alive.

One lingering look before he went to work and she’d leave him adjusting himself and cursing. Licking her lips when they dined on fish, on berries from Joan, overtly sexual and entirely cruel, she made him a simmering monster of need.

I want off this goddamn boat, and if that means I have to fuck everyone on it to get there, then I’m ready.

Slip your hand between your thighs and tell me what you feel like.

From The Publisher


I’ve seen the way he looks at me.

The Captain. The unquestioned leader of this ship.

A ship I wish to be free of. A man I want to be as far away from as my legs might carry me.

The society he’s designed, the rules, the endless battle of wills...

Yes, I’ve seen the way he looks at me.

I’ve felt his fingertips brush my skin. Heard his laugh. Experienced his smile.

One that’s only for me, and only in secret.

And I know what he wants.

He told me himself that everyone has to pay; that all who survived the fall of civilization were culpable. That’s how he justifies the decisions he’s made, the necessary evils he allows to take place on this ship… all in the name of a greater good.

And it’s why I resist the starved way his gaze drinks me down. Why I can’t be had at any price.

SWALLOW IT DOWN is an angst-ridden, enemies to lovers romance, boasting a strong female lead and a swoon worthy hero. This standalone features an HEA that will keep you turning the page all night.


I read. I create. I get in trouble. That is me in a nutshell. I live in a snarky, artistic, eclectic world where BDSM and Dark Erotica are high on my reading list. I yearn for a really raw, gritty book where the lead guy/girl is more like a villain and I am left completely mindf*cked. The more the usual lines of morality are blurred, the better. I am an Alice in Wonderland Freak, an Edgar Allan Poe lover and an ocean addicted mermaid. I like originality when it comes to my books. The dirtier, the better.
