LENGTH: 147 Pages
Kaleb Holten’s father’s debt to an underground group The Association has just been called in, and the man can’t pay the loan. Instead of turning over his wealth, he releases his son and Kaleb finds himself thrown into a world where a class of men see themselves as untouchable. Going so far as to call themselves gods.
After the Great Economic Collapse there are no laws that cannot be broken. And Kaleb is forced into a ten-year sentence of servitude where he will have no say, no rights, no value and yet be coveted and protected as if he were a priceless treasure.
Leo Roan, has slipped the noose the Association bound him with by breaking his addiction to ambrosia and Kaleb Holten was supposed to be his last assignment as a doxie Master. But something about the boy begins weaving a new net that will not only ensnare him but the conscious darkness inside, that craves pain, agony, suffering, and death.
Yes! This is definitely my type of book. Chimera is set in an alternate world where there has been a financial crash. Many live in misery, but some prosper. There are men who call themselves gods, and ultimately they have all the money and power. Eighteen year old, Kaleb, enters the picture after his father gives Kaleb up to the gods to pay for defaulting on a 20 million dollar loan. Kaleb is special somehow and the god, Leo, who must train him, is already addicted to everything about him. The book covers the first two days of Kaleb’s training, which is amazing and intense.
This book was extremely hot. Kaleb’s vulnerability and how he loves the crazy things Leo is doing to him is unbelievably erotic. Although this is just a glimpse into Kaleb’s year of training with Leo, I am already addicted. Kaleb must serve the gods for ten years, which I cannot even imagine. However, I’m hoping that Leo finds some way of keeping him. I’m looking forward to learning more about this world and I’m very intrigued by what makes Kaleb special. I’m so glad the next book is already out since I can’t wait to read it. I recommend Chimera Bound Gods book 1 to anyone who loves m/m dark erotica, dub-con, and BDSM.
RATING: Absolutely loved it!
