Midnight Whispers by P. Rayne


Midnight Whispers

by P. Rayne

Self-Published

Book 3 in the Midnight Manor Series


I spend my nights slinging drinks at Black Magic Bar or taking my clothes off at the local strip club.


After my father passed, my stepmother gave me no other choice.

But when I break free of the chains binding me to my family estate, I find myself with nowhere to go. Until Nero Voss, the youngest of the billionaire Voss brothers, offers me a room at Midnight Manor. Now, I’m under his watchful gaze and enjoying it more than I should.

I shouldn’t give in to temptation, he is my stepsister’s ex-fiancé after all, but the pull toward him grows stronger by the day. I fight, but I’m losing the battle.

Nero is keeping secrets, though.

What he doesn’t know is that I’m keeping secrets, too.



Genre


Triggers

death, death of parent (off-page before the story begins), murder (off page), gun violence, alcohol, discussion of childhood physical abuse (off page), domestic abuse, verbal abuse, sex club, stalking, drug use, and partner sharing.


 

Before I begin, I would like to thank P. Rayne and Valentine PR for sending me an arc of Midnight Whispers in exchange for a fair and honest review.


When I read the end of Shattered Vows, and learned Midnight Whispers was going to be a stalking romance, I was excited to read it.

So it's a little bit of a bummer that while I liked it, I didn't love it.

It just felt very ... flat.

There wasn't a whole lot of chemistry between them.

I didn't understand the attraction. Cinder felt kind of ... boring?

And everything was so ... easy for them. I mean, we get the usual separation before the climax that is the norm in a romance, but the lead up to them ending up together was too simple and rushed.

Not to mention, we get absolutely nothing in terms of relationship building between them. Not too much of them getting to know one another.

It just felt very wham, bam, thank you mam.

Also, much like Shattered Vows, the fairytale theme was a little too much on the nose. In 2024, what person would allow their stepmother and stepsisters to treat them that way because they love their childhood home?

It makes sense in a historical setting because women had no rights, but it doesn't work in 2024. It made me dislike her character, because she seemed weak.

I did like the stalking though - especially when she learns of it, and likes that he watches her. And he continues even after they get together, which I found refreshing.

I also really enjoyed the steamy scenes. I don't read a whole lot of books where the kink is sharing your partner, so it was fun to explore that.


Midnight Whispers was not my favorite of the series so far, but P. Rayne sure knows how to suck you in. I need to know, what is going on with Sid?!?!
