Disengaged: A Dangerously Forbidden Love Affair

By Jamie Magee



Dark Romance Novel, sensitive topics with religious undertones (hope in the face of hell).

Finding herself stranded in a new city, eighteen-year-old Ember Bloom thought she’d reached her all time low. She was wrong. A mindless walk to a dead-end job landed her in the path of her gambling fathers’ enemies. Her only defense was a stranger, Slayton Winslow, a known enforcer and fighter—rumored to be Odin’s prince, underground royalty.

On sight, Slayton stole her breath and rushed her heart. His enigmatic attraction to her and how stoically he shielded her only churned Ember’s attraction to the bad boy who had given her safe haven in a real life hell. The draw to him gave her a reason to fight, to awaken. She knew every second could be their last in the city seeded with treacherous deceit and life threatening power plays.


Disengaged is a dark love story. It is the story of Ember (a young women that has been given a bad lot in life) and Slayton (an enforcer and fighter in an underground crime ring).

I found this story hard to get through.  After everything that Ember has gone through with her father, I’m not sure that I get why she is with Slayton.  I understand the bad boy attraction but he doesn’t treat her very well in the beginning and he is the person that is given the task of collecting her father’s debt.  I also found that this story was very slow and had trouble getting going.  It didn’t pick up the pace until almost 75% through the story.  Disengaged did finish strong but I did have problems believing they would get together in the first place.
