Imogen: A Dark Romantic Thriller is a story full of twists, where two flawed people are thrust into a dystopian world by no choice of their own.

One false move could have dire consequences.

Misty’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
Imogen’s story is so dark and at times so brutal. So many times these pages took my breath away and left me speechless and at a loss for words. Normally I will not read a book about war, but this one is so different from anything I’ve ever read. It’s a very emotional book, you will feel heartache, but so much anger for what these girls were faced with.
Imogen was lucky compared to other girls, but lucky really isn’t the right word to use. She had it far better then others. She was just an innocent woman, like the others, that fell as a slave during this war. They were used and tortured and had to endure whatever their master desired. Erik was so much different then the other men, but also so much the same.
Somehow between all the torture, love was found by accident. A twistedly dark love, but somehow those two develope an odd secret bond. Erik tries to keep her safe. Their strange bond will anger and frustrate you while reading this book, but you’ll be so hooked on what’s going to happen next, you just can’t put it down.
R.B. O’Brien has always been drawn to the more taboo side of storytelling, even as a young adult, from hiding books from strict Catholic parents as a teen to getting lost in the erotic sections of bookstores for hours.
She is best known for her three published erotic romances, Thorne, Edge of Torment and Imogen. Much of her work explores the darker, sensual nature of relationships, those riddled with the reality of insecurities and human folly, often exposing the vulnerability, emotional turmoil, and occasional pain that can come from losing oneself in the heat of passion.
O’Brien holds a degree in English literature and teaches for a living in the Northeast, USA. She is the founding member of The Nu Romantics, a poet, a professor, a writer, a dancer, and a die-hard romantic known for her poetry prompts on social media including #writingromancelines, #sixwords, and #foundpoetry. O’Brien also has a profound affection for Shakespeare and beyond that, writes. Every chance she gets. Ruin My Lipstick is her first poetry collection.
