Dark Notes by Pam Godwin

They call me a slut. Maybe I am.
Sometimes I do things I despise.
Sometimes men take without asking.

But I have a musical gift, only a year left of high school, and a plan.
With one obstacle.

Emeric Marceaux doesn’t just take.
He seizes my will power and bangs it like a dark note.
When he commands me to play, I want to give him everything.
I kneel for his punishments, tremble for his touch, and risk it all for our stolen moments.

He’s my obsession, my master, my music.
And my teacher.


I made the mistake of starting this on a Thursday night... I went to work with 2 hours of sleep because I couldn't stop reading this story. And when I tried to fall asleep, I just kept thinking of what was going to happen next!

Ivory, a 17 year old piano student, attended one of the best schools because of her talent and because her tuition was paid in full when she was younger. Unfortunately, things fell apart in her family, and she had to do some shameful things to pay the bills.

Emeric Marceaux was the new Head Music Instructor at the school. When he spotted Ivory on his first day, he was instantly attracted to her. Disappointment flooded him when he found out she wasn't part of the faculty.

As the days went on, he noticed signs of abuse. Even though he knew he needed to stay away from her, he couldn't get her out of his mind. Emeric's personality will melt your panties. He's dominate, intelligent, and strong. He's also very creative in the bedroom.

Because of Ivory's abuse, Emeric took his time to make sure she was comfortable. When Ivory was able to trust him, the chemistry between them was explosive.

I fell in love with the plot and characters instantly. This was the first book I've read from Pam Godwin. And because of Dark Notes, she has become one of my favorite authors. I can't wait to read her other works!
