Momma Says: 5 out of 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Mindgasm is wonderfully written in first person, dual POV with chapters alternating between our main characters, Dean and Nora. This trilogy has been a bit different from most in that the characters are telling their story directly to the reader. (I'll explain more on that in a bit.) It is a Dark Romance and it's Gabi, so certainly steamy. With the steam and adult themes, I recommend 18+ on not just this one, but the whole trilogy.
You think it’s all about love. You think it’s about kindness and truth and beauty. Pain is a gift. I love you. And I’m going to hurt you...
Happily ever afters?
No such thing.
Life isn’t a fairy tale.
Once you kill the dragon and rescue the princess,
you start to wonder if maybe the princess
and the dragon needed each other,
and before you know it, another dragon appears,
and the slaying starts all over again.
Suddenly I have everything I’ve ever wanted.
And so much more.
Sometimes I wake up at night and have to
remind myself that I’m not dreaming,
and that the gorgeous man sleeping bare-chested
in the bed beside me is 100% real.
He loves me, and I love him.
But there’s something dark inside me.
I’m afraid of what I’m capable of,
afraid of how far I’m pushing things.
If flirting with death like this could ruin everything I love,
and could destroy my entire world and everything I fought so hard to hold onto,
then why does it feel so damn good?
Nora scares me.
But I can’t look away.
I don’t want to look away.
Every man feels like the woman he loves
is nothing like all the other women.
He feels like she’s another creature entirely,
not of this world, a rare prize he’s won.
I felt that way about Nora.
But I don’t even know where we’re going anymore.
Money is my thing.
I’m a businessman.
I excel in the world of solid rationality, of action,
and there hasn’t been a puzzle yet that can stump me for long.
Nora deals in a far stranger currency.
Her beautiful body is a riddle to me, her mind is a maze.
I would do anything for that woman,
but even I’m not sure if I have what she needs...
