Let me start this one off with a trigger warning. There will be many different kinds of triggers found in the following novels. I will attempt to note the types of triggers next to the corresponding novel. I would recommend due diligence on your part as well if you have any triggers that could hinder you from enjoying certain dark themed reads, should I miss or leave off any triggers.
Every now and again, I enjoy a well written dark RH. I mostly read PRN and fantasy. Sometimes you need to root for the bad guy. Real life doesn’t always end in a HEA. Maybe. Just maybe you’ve been through some shit and are looking for a female MC, or male (whatever blows your hair back) that has been in a similar situation to yourself and you want to take that journey with them. Maybe you’re a glutton for punishment and enjoy a darker bdsm novel, Maybe you’re into dubcon (dubious consent). It could be that you just enjoy a hell of a lot of angst. No judgement here. I’m just the girl with the naughty book box here to share her dirty books. Know a great dark read I didn’t list? Let me know! It up to you whether you reach in that box and find a new novel to read. I hope you do. After all, that’s why i’m here. -Quare Eligere
