    1. Mother, lover, dreamer and someone with an unhealthy obsession with ukuleles, unicorns and luxury real estate Born and raised in a conservative, strict Christian household in the Bible Belt of the USA, her upbringing and repression contributed to her wicked imagination, and writing has become a pleasurable and satisfying outlet for her fantasies At the mature age of forty, she mustered up the courage to share her thoughts and put pen to paper She sincerely hopes to find her niche in writing romance in all forms, be it dark romance, romantic suspense, romantic comedy, psychological thrillers and paranormal.She doesn t consider herself an author, rather, an avid reader above all else and someone who simply writes the stories that the characters in her head tell her to.Why must I be vexed, hexed, perplexed with a dirty mind Why must I be compelled to write my filthy thoughts down, line for line Some one tell me please, no.rmind.Does anyone read it Does anyone care Should I write erotica Do I dare I write about things naughtyI write about things tabooI write about things that we all want to do I ll keep writing as long as I can, so long as I have just one fan By me I m 40 in the flesh, 30 in the mind, and I ve done dirty things with my hands that could make me go blind Silly, thoughtful, sympathetic, naughty, delusional, moody, loving, begrudging sometimes forgiving that s me in a nutshell.Only time will tell if my efforts are worthwhile I only hope that my words can make one person smile me

    2. ★★★★ ½! Grace Street, book 1 of 2. A complex BDSM relationship with the enigma Mr. Black in hunt for a serial killer! “What filthy things are you willing to do for me? What can you teach me that I don’t already know? What can I teach you about yourself? I will know all your desires and secrets, I promise you,”Books in Chapter 8 duet should be read in order:Book 1: Grace StreetBook 2: Return to Grace StreetBook 1 & 2: Chapter 8: Complete set - Bonus scenes, epilogue & alter [...]

    3. 🌟🌟🌟1/2 STARS Grace Street (Chapter 8, #1) by Ella Dominguez what did I think.Well first things, I have not read anything by this author before so this was a virgin experience for me.So mostly I liked this, but unfortunately, there was just something I struggled to put my finger on in regards to our two main characters.I couldn't quite get a handle on them which left it in turn quite difficult for me to connect with both Elsa and Victor themselves.So Grace street tells the story of both [...]

    4. 4 “My House, My Rules” Stars Victor Laurenzo is a FBI criminal profiler who handles difficult cases. In trying to escape the gravity of his work and feeding the need of his own dark side, Victor treats his physical relationships like case studies – detached and cunning. In seeking his newest Chapter to break and groom, he soon realizes she may be his biggest challenge yet.“Maybe, just maybe, the next Chapter in his life would finally see him for who truly was and allow him to let all his [...]

    5. I doubt any of this review will make much sense as my mind is all over the place, this got me questioning myself. I'm left wondering what it would take to make me class a book as REALLY dark because this one wasn't for me. "A little intrigue never hurt anyone, after all. Or did it?" This didn't turn me on or get me excited but it was interesting. And the people who have rated this low because they find it offensive - it has a warning at the start that blatantly tells you this isn't a sexy love s [...]

    6. OH.GOD!!!!!! What the hell was THAT?!!!This book left me stunned speechless!! It was such an emotional and mental roller-coaster!!!!There were a lot of unreasonable things about this book, I tried a lot to see things from their point of view and made excuses for their unjustified fucked up interaction, but for the love of god I couldn't fathom anything they did or said especially her's.Yeah, he was a pained tortured soul, blah,blah Ok, I get all that shit!, What I couldn't get or accept was why [...]

    7. 5+STARS! I love you Agent Victor Laurenzo you bat shit crazy controlling, possessive, asshole licking sex on a stick, I want to be your Chapter 9!I feel I've hit the jackpot by stumbling across this. As of now it's available as a boxset.Let me tell you just a wee bit about Agent Laurenzo, the man has issues. He chooses who he wants andthey become a number in his little leather book. He likes to profile them on his on time, pushing them to their limits he shows no mercy and might I add he likes d [...]

    8. I had the pleasure of beta reading Grace Street for Ella and all I can say is WOW!!! Fan-fucking-tastic work Ella!!! I don't even know where to begin; this was a rollercoaster ride for me. I went from being completely smitten with tall, dark, & handsome Victor Laurenzo to absolutely detesting the cruel man that he proved to be. This has been one of the darkest books I’ve read, and I wish I could say I loved every minute of it, but I can’t. There were some parts that were really hard to g [...]

    9. Sounded Promising, But Didn't Deliver.I love dark, taboo stories, so after reading the blurb for 'Grace Street' I thought it'd be an instant hit for me. Sadly, it just didn't happen. Several times, I considered just leaving it unfinished because I couldn't feel any connection to the characters or story. In truth, I really disliked both of the main characters for most of the book. It wasn't until about 3/4 of the way in that I was able to feel the slightest of positive emotions for either of them [...]

    10. This story is very different from the author's previous releases, but I think it is her best yet. This the story of Victor, an FBI profiler, who attempts to better understand human nature by studying and manipulating a series of test subjects. Elsa is his most recent, and most difficult experiment. Elsa is desperate to show Victor that he is worth loving, so she allows him to continue with his cruel and often times abusive treatment. Victor responds with harsher treatment to try to prove that he [...]

    11. I don't think I could possibly put into words how beautiful and heartrending this book is. Ms. Dominguez has an impeccable narrative. I felt like a voyeur in the lives of Mr. Black and Elsa. It was beautiful, yet ugly; dark, yet light; gloomy, yet hopeful. I was mesmerized by her voice and I couldn't put it down. There were points where I had to put the book down and cry out "No, Elsa." But then I had to pick it up again to read the concise words which held so much meaning. I was entranced by th [...]

    12. 5 - Sweet Peach - starsAn intriguing story of a sexy FBI profiler Victor Laurenzo aka Mr. Black and a gorgeous Chapter 8 aka Elsa Cassidy.Their story is not hearts and flowers. It's hard core from the beginning till the end.Games. Rules observed. Rules broken. All is connected in one whole unit the center of which is they. It's not your typical dark story. It's much more. It's the game of two mastermind and the question always lingers in the background - Can the master be overplayed? "F*#k the r [...]

    13. 5 "Evil Grinning" Stars! Grace Street left me with so many emotions! Bad Mr. Black managed to shock mea lot! I mean damnhe made me so freaking angry but I couldn't look awayThen along comes irresistible Victor and I'm blown awayd feeling the sinister giddiness of knowing that I loved this twisted book waaay more than I should!Why you might ask? Becaused I love a good mindfuck! Oh Mr. Black! What have you done to me! Grace Street is such a unique concept and I haven't read anything like it before [...]

    14. 3.5 starsThis is the story of Victor and Elsa and their game.I was waiting a long time to start reading this book. And till this day, I am not sure if I am happy about it or not. Ms. Dominguez created a game that should have a winner and a looser but I didn't feel it like this. The game felt lost to me from the very beginning. The rules were constantly changing, the balance among the heroes was nowhere to be found and most importantly I couldn’t understand the purpose of the game. On the other [...]

    15. No way to get around it, this book is very dark, cringeworthy dark, self questioning darkwhy am I liking it, and why do I keep reading it, dark.Fair warning about this book is necessary is not for the faint of heart.Yet I did like it and I kept reading it until I was finished, no matter that it was 12:30 and I am up at 5:30 to start my day.Ella Dominguez is a fantastic writer. She has never disappointed and certainly not with Grace Street. Grace Street had me sucked in from the first blurbs appe [...]

    16. 3.5 starsI have heard very good things about this author so was super excited to receive a copy of Chapter 8, in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed the story for the most part, but should have known I wasn't going to love it when it started out with the signing of a contract between the two MC's. How many times has that been done?Contract aside, there were a few things that made absolutely no sense to me. Those mainly being the detective side of the story, and the back-story. Victor visite [...]

    17. A dark erotic romance is not an easy thing to write. If they are well written, the reader can come away from that book with thoughts of the characters in their minds for weeks at a time. Thoughts that make you wonder. Thoughts that make you feel a part of the story and the inevitable heartbreaking outcome. Well, this book was beyond well written. This book was hands down one of the best dark reads I've ever come across and I'm beside myself right now with the need for more. Absolutely a must hav [...]

    18. A really enjoyable read. The mysterious Victor or Mr Black and his Chapter 8 Elsa. Some hot fireworks between the couple throughout. Had me gripped towards the end when I felt the story came to life. No Cliffy, just left me wanting more. Will def be reading part 2 to find out how things pan out for Mr Black and Elsa.

    19. Let me start with I am new to Ms. Dominguez having never read any of her books. I have several, just haven’t read them yet. So taking a quick break to read something sitting around in my Kindle I figured what the heck.Grace Street was certainly not what I expected. Victor aka Mr Black. Truly, I don’t know which was more disturbing. He certainly was a unique character. Elsa, hmm you are a very SMART girl. More than a match for Victor. Their story is a interesting one. A romance but not a roma [...]

    20. 4,25 StarsSo this is my first series from this author.I read this book in spite of the warning!Dark and disturbing book is one of my favorite genre and this book delivered dark with a lot of disturbing scenes not everyone can enjoy.I have to admit that I really admire Ms Dominguez creativity because out of dark books I ever read this one is so unique. It has its own shocking factors where at some point I couldn't think anymore I just read and enjoyed the ride.“I know what you’re trying to do [...]

    21. Talk about a control freak with a split personality. That would be Mr. Black. He is so "messed up" he thinks he has no redeeming qualities. And boy oh boy does he set out to prove it by the cruelty he dishes out to his love interest, and I use that term loosely. He is acting upon the belief that he is helping them to be strong and that to be vulnerable will only hurt them.Until Elsa. She has him unsure of himself and questioning his every decision. Things that have worked before with others do n [...]

    22. To say I was pleasantly surprised by this book would be an understatement. I was recently recommended, The Art of Submission, and I did not enjoy it at all. Could only barely get through the first book of the trilogy. I found the writing very simplistic, along with the main female's language, but I digress. I was hesitant to start Grace Street fearing it would feature the simplistic writing from TAOS. Ms. Dominguez outdone herself on this book and completely changed my mind about her. The writin [...]

    23. Ella graciously gave me an ARC. I started reading this book last night and unfortunately had to work today so I couldn't read it straight through as I would have liked. I had trouble putting it down to sleep last night and read it every chance that I got throughout the day at work then continued reading it as soon as I got home from work and didn't stop until I had finished the book. This was a very gripping story. I like the music references and listened to the music mentioned as I went along; [...]

    24. Quick review:Cover: Eye Catching Rating:NC-17Steaminess:HOT Thumbs Up:4.5Overall: TwistedCharacters: Well DonePlot: Opening to your hidden desiresPage Turner: Yes Series Cont.? Yes Recommend:YesBook Boyfriend: VictorSUMMARY (60 words or less)Twisted romance indeed. I can’t say that Elsa didn’t annoy me at times, but I understood where she was coming from. I was just caught up in the sheer twisted nature of their relationship and so very intrigued to find out more.For a full review and yummy [...]

    25. ohgodI should've waited until #2 was out before I read this. I'm so invested in the story and I want to see what happens next! More in depth review to come later when I'm not so emotionally raw.

    26. I finished this book in one day. I really really loved it, though isn't a classic romance. Can't wait for another one.

    27. God I love her bookswhat a page turner cannot get enough. ella really outdid herself on this one can't wait for the next book!!!!!!

    28. This book had me at "Obsession, possession, resilience, insanity" Looking forward to reading this!

    29. Melodramatic! Around the 65% mark got really boring. I had to skip to the end. I found the story to be unreal, and the protagonists pretty uninteresting. Mr. Black/Victor; what a wimp; what a weakling. Just 'cause he is capable of great cruelty, and emotional/physical abuse does not make this a 'man' I'd like to know in any way. He just comes across, to me, as a real 'fake'. He is so in need of some real TLC, it is pathetic. Elsa has never had a relationship which she 'left'; her partners always [...]

    30. It takes a special kind of author to produce a riveting dark romance/thriller and you’ve guessed it Ella is definitely one such author. This definitely comes with a warning, do not read if you cannot handle, humiliation, mistreatment, mind fcukery and erotic shock factors to boot. It’s dark, it’s potent and if you love dark erotica it’s one of the best reads ever.Grace Street is a dark read like no other I have read before. This book is definitely top of its game for an erotic ride into [...]

    31. Grace Street ( Chapter 8 Book #1) - Ella Dominguez ( 4 Stars)* Given a copy through instafreebie for an Honest Review.
