Sinful Sunday Review: Degradation by Stylo Fantome

May 24, 2020

Degradation by Stylo Fantome is FREE with Kindle Unlimited!!


Eighteen year old Tatum O'Shea is a naive, shy, little rich girl. Twenty-three year old Jameson Kane is smart, seductive, and richer. They come together for one night, one explosion, one mistake, and Tate is hurled into space – no family, no money, and no Jameson.

Seven years later, life is going pretty good for Tate, when she runs into Jameson again. This time, she thinks she's ready for him. She doesn't have a naive bone left in her body, and she can't even remember what shy feels like. Jameson has evolved, as well – sharp words, sharper wit, and a tongue that can cut her in half. It all sounds like fun to a woman like Tate, and she is ready to play, determined to prove that she isn't the same girl he conquered once before. A series of games start, each one more devious than the last.

But as the line between games and reality becomes blurry, Tate quickly learns that Jameson has most definitely earned his nickname, “Satan”. Can she beat him at his own game before someone gets hurt? Or will he leave her soulless, making him the winner, once and for all?

This shit is wild, y'all! 😂 

Degradation by Stylo Fantome is not a sweet, cookie cutter romance at all, but I think that's pretty obvious from the cover and title. 

If you're looking for swoon factor or a romantic man that melts your heart, you're looking in the wrong place! 

This book is not for everyone. 

I found the hero, Jameson Kane, to be arrogant and selfish af most of the time. It's a good thing he's also sexy, rich, successful, and most importantly, amazing in bed. He's so good in fact, Tate compares every man she's with to him even years after their first sexual encounter. 

Tatum O'Shea is gorgeous, resourceful, sexually promiscuous, confident, and free. 
Though she doesn't seem to realize her worth, because she sells herself short the majority of the time, allowing herself to be treated in ways she doesn't deserve. She's also a master at lying to herself about her true feelings. 

That being said, she doesn't seem to have an issue with the way she's treated for the most part. That's more my opinion of her situation.

Kane and Tate constantly push each other sexually and emotionally. The emotional part is where they run into trouble. It's almost as if they want to see how quickly and badly they can fuck themselves/each other up. They play games with one another that quite obviously will end with both of them losing, but it seems as if they can't or won't stop.  

As you can see, the characters are far from perfect

Despite that, I still found Degradation to be entertaining, hot, and mesmerizing like a train wreck. 

I mean no disrespect to the author by saying that either. 

Kane and Tate are a hot mess, because she created them that way. Their complicated, out of the box "relationship" works for as long as it does largely due to their personalities and unconventional beliefs. They're both people who are used to not wanting more than physical gratification from others, and they get off on things that would have most other people in a jealous rage. 

Sex was never their problem though. That's the place where they are 100 percent compatible. When feelings seep into the equation, things get hella messy, and some super fucked up shit happens as a result. 
All of which is what made the story intriguing and captivating, so I wouldn't have wanted it any other way!

If you have issues with open relationships or women being degraded and/or consensual violence during sex, you should just skip this one. However if those things aren't your favorite, but they're not necessarily deal-breakers for you, give it a try! 

Degradation is book 1 in The Kane Trilogy, so obviously, the story leaves off on a cliff hanger. The good news is all of the books are already out, so you'll be able to dive right into the next installment when you're done!

Romance fans that like kinky sex, complicated relationships, and imperfect characters, this one's for you!

About the Author

Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since ..., forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball - I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT. 

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair - both a curse and a blessing - and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me. 

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
