"One snap with the shutter of my camera, and you will be mine forever," he whispered.

My name is Sam, short for Samantha. I’m regular, boring and plain. During my time in college, the only class I could ever relax in was photography, or at least… until I met him.
The new photography teacher changed everything. He is too sexy for his own good, and his mind too twisted for words to describe. Now, I live every aching moment thinking about him, knowing that I shouldn’t. Together, we spiraled out of control, tumbled into the darkness, and honestly..? I think I like it.

Picture Me ThisFirst of, I NEED to say that I am beyond impressed with Marina Lovechild! Ms. Lovechild made a few tiny changes in Picture Me This and it has become a full-bodied tale of romance on the dark side and it is fabulous! THIS is sexy and hot romance!

NEW REVIEW:
Very dark, brooding and boldly erotic. Marina Lovechild’s Picture Me This is a tale about a dark and addicting romance between a young college professor and his most promising and artistic student. Sam has discovered the soul of photography in her dark and stark self-portraits, baring her soul and her body in calculating frankness. Her professor, a professional photographer who has burned out, falls first for her dark side and then for the soul she captures in her photos as he recognizes that she is what he needs to complete himself. She understands him better than he understands himself and knows that his inner darkness and need for love and acceptance is as strong as hers.

Their trysts consist of sex in its most primal state, pain, pleasure and at the point of losing control, yet through it all, it seems Sam is the strong one, giving to Aiden what he needs without shame or embarrassment. Have they found the key to accepting themselves through each other? Did they come into each other’s lives at that perfect moment that will change how they feel about themselves?

Ms. Lovechild can write and she is so devoted to her craft, she is not afraid to take a second look and let her characters and own imagination run free guiding her. These are two damaged characters who have receded into themselves, while begging inwardly to be accepted. Sam has some meaty depth that creeps into the story bit by bit until she seems to break free of her stasis. Aiden has been so disillusioned by the mess he has created in his life, his journey is actually far more difficult. Their chemistry is searing, when they come together it is a desperate thing that each of them needs, but do they feel they deserve it? This story has come to life and the characters actually breathe as they live in the pages of this tale.

Marina Lovechild has taken a dark and erotic tale and turned it into a story about love.


OLD REVIEW-
Very dark, brooding and boldly erotic. Marina Lovechild’s Picture Me This is a tale about a twisted and animalistic romance between a young college professor and his most promising and artistic student. Sam has discovered the soul of photography in her dark and stark self-portraits, baring her soul and her body in calculating frankness. Her professor, a professional photographer who has burned out, falls first for her darkside and then for the soul she captures in her photos.
Their trysts consist of sex in its most primal state, pain, pleasure and taunting. Only the bouts of conscience by the professor make their affair less than perfect as he runs hot and cold with Sam, causing her to crave his darkness. Healthy? Um, probably not.

There are so many directions this tale could have gone in were it fleshed out more. Talk about potential for a truly remarkable dark and erotic read. Ms. Lovechild can write, no doubt about it, and she knows her twisted and dark side of romance, but this deserves “more” to showcase its potential.

I received this copy from Marina Lovechild in exchange for my honest review.
