Neda Reviews Slave by Sherri Hayes

Neda Reviews Slave by Sherri Hayes



Stephan has lived the lifestyle of a Dominant for five years. After several rebellious teenage years, it gave him the stability and control he had been seeking after his parent’s death.

As president of a not-for-profit foundation, he knows what his future holds and what he wants out of life. All that changes when a simple lunch with his college friend and Mentor, Daren, leads him to buying a slave.

Thrust into a situation he never thought he’d be in, Stephan can’t walk away. He is compelled to help this girl in the only way he knows how.

Brianna knows only one thing, she is a slave. She has nothing. She is nothing.

Can Stephan help Brianna realize that she is much more than just a Slave?


When reading the synopsis of Slave by Sherri Hayes, I was initially turned off. To me, it sounded like a hardcore dark erotic novel, something that I tend to stay away from, it appeared to be disturbing tale of sexual deviance that frankly made my stomach turn. However, a trusted fellow reader kept going on and on about how emotional it was, and  my fellow Goodreads friends were all giving it 4 or 5 stars.   Many of said friends had read books that I love and treasure. At this point I said to myself  that this was worth trying, and frankly I am glad I did.

Slave is one of the most emotionally charged, mentally stimulating and body shattering romance novels I have ever read. It is so much more than a story about human trafficking, sexual slavery or BDSM; it is a tale full of redemption, kindness and hope.
In this wonderfully unique  novel we meet Stephan, a Dom, a high-powered philanthropist and business man who purchases a young Slave  by the name of Brianna, not to use her, but to help her escape her current predicament.   Brianna is a human trafficking victim that has been purchased by a sadistic Dom who is sexually satisfied through humiliating and torturing his sex partners, which are all women he has bought and owns.
This Novel is classified under erotic romance.  I personally found this rather odd since this book contains no contact of an intimate, sexual nature.  Yes there is an underlay of BDSM since Stephan is a Dom and Brianna for all intents and purposes is a submissive.   Yes there is an aura of sexual tension and intrigue within the novel which foreshadows  the progression of their relationship in the future. Instead,  I was pleasantly surprised by a moving love story. A story about a strong alpha with a golden heart and a traumatized naive young women.  It’s not a tale of sexual taboos but a love song to kindness, understanding,  forgiveness and retribution.   This is a beginning to a four-part series that in my opinion will make Sherri Hayes a literary star.

I give Need by Sherri Hayes

Gold star

This book shattered my heart, shook my body, hurt my soul and made me ponder. I thought of all the women around the world.  All the pain, abuse, and sorrow.  I thought of how Brianna’s tale is something that I have heard before. A tale that happens in Africa, Asia, South America, Australia Europe and even in North America. I distinctly remember a tale of two girls being held as sex slaves right in my City.  A major metropolitan city in Canada.   I recommended this book to my book club and it fueled conversations about Brianna’s captivity and struggle.   They began to research what is out there and how this can happen to innocent people in our day and age.   So I will leave you with this. If you have never heard of human trafficking or the sex slave industry please take a moment to explore the following sites which I have found informative.
