ARC: Agony - Yolanda Olson

ARC received in exchange for an honest review
Published Date: November 21, 2015
Genre: Dark/New Adult
Synopsis: Neve Dutton leaves New York with the promise of stardom in her eyes. Never wanting to be in front of the cameras, she's happiest following her career choice of being a director's assistant. But when she lands a job at an adult entertainment company, she realizes that her dream job is really a nightmare. Tricked by her cousin, Adesynne, into working for the porn giant company Devil's Den, Neve finds her days are full of awkward moments, stress, uncomfortable shoots, and wishing for nothing more than to be back home. Until she meets Arsen Caldwell. Arsen hides his secret from Neve for as long as he can and helps to get her transferred to another company where she lands a job with Jareth Vance of Golden Hills Media. Jareth sees a potential star in Neve, but she doesn't know that her first starring roll could possibly be her last. 

Holy shit, holy shit, holy shit, holy shit, holy shit,holy shit, holy shit,holy shit, holy shit,holy shit, holy shit,holy shit, holy shit... The only thing running through my mind is what the hell did I just read. So this is the first book I read from Yolanda and well, it was dark as hell. 

Whatever you want to call it, the plot twist/ending really got me. It tugged at my heart strings and well, I just couldn't sleep last night after i finished the book. You know, how after you read a book, you're supposed to be complacent with the ending? Not with this book. Like what the actual fuck, Yolanda?

You have one sick, twisted, dark mind but I liked it enough to keep reading the book. So props to you but in all honesty, it was really short so it got rushed by the end. I didn't know how I felt about Neve but her cousin, Adesynne is one of the funniest characters to get to know. But I would also feel sick to my stomach if my cousin set me up with some job like that as well. Meeting a hot guy while on set? What the chances that he isn't some porn star? Slim to none.

Every character in this book is sick and twisted or become just that along the way as the plot thickens. Would I rather have this as a full-length novel? Yeah, I would. But I would rather not have this happen to anyone in all honesty. I was depressed by the end. For Neve. For Arsen. For Adesynne. God. 

Adesynne and Neve's relationship is the one I have with my cousin and it made me put it into my eyes. My shoes. Truly mad my heart break. I rate this book a solid 3 out of 5 stars and I recommend this to those who can stomach dark and twisted things and the horrors that occur. If you can't, don't read this book.

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
