Book Three - Contingent

Add to Goodreads


Braelynn and Peyton are finally headed down a path without torment—until he allows someone else to come between them.

With the remnants of her broken heart scattered, Braelynn begins to piece herself back together, piece by ragged piece.

Peyton has dark secrets of his own. Secrets that leave him no choice but to walk away from the only woman he’s ever loved.

But his desire for Braelynn has him fighting between what he wants, and what he needs to do to keep her safe.

Love can only withstand so much. The connection between Braelynn and Peyton has been tested before—could this be their breaking point?

She lay naked on the white linen sheet, her golden blonde hair fanned out across her pillow. She had been my all, the one to come into my life, cause havoc, and claim my heart. She had been my everything. My greatest desire. The fuel that pumped through my veins.

The sun beamed down on her skin, glistening on her flawless fair body. Almost flawless anyway.

The marks from our recent times in the playroom were still visible, her wrists that were tucked under her chin revealing a crimson burn from her pulling on the restraints. Her plump breast scarred from the lashes of the flogger, and her upper thighs holding the same marks as her breast.

I was terrified at the pain I had caused her, but horrified that I wanted to cause more.

Braelynn had repeated over and over that she loved the marks and the pleasures they gave her. Since she had rejected my proposal, I began to feel that she was slipping away. The grasp I had over her was fading and my need for her had been replaced with rage and want. I needed to punish her for saying no, whip her flesh when I felt her slipping out of my hands. Though I was sickened once we were done, massaging the welts kissing them with my love, I reveled in her moans and her screams of pleasure made me hungry for more.

She had turned me into the monster I now was. Possessive, demanding, and hungrier for her than I had ever been. Her arousal when I slid deep inside her had me on the brink of losing myself. The way she came around me, choking my cock … it was indescribable. But when she bowed her head, her blonde hair covering her face as she submitted to me, that had my inner Dom crawling out of my body, wanting to take full reign over hers.

And I did.

For the past six weeks she’d spent every night with me, letting me have full possession of her weak body. But the nagging voice in my head kept saying that our time was limited.

“You’re doing it again,” she whispered, her voice filled with exhaustion. Her eyes peered open when she spoke.

I leaned forward, kissing the tip of her nose. “I don’t know what you’re talking about,” I lied.

“Yes, you do. You’re thinking so loud I can hear it in my sleep.”


“Stop it!” Her eyes flashed open, and a sea of green and brown specks pierced me. “You aren’t hurting me.”

I shook my head, completely disagreeing with her. “Look at the bruises on your skin.” I traced my hand over her soft breast.

“I have a safe word and I have yet to use it.” She pulled the cover over her blemished flesh and turned on her side.

She hadn’t used it yet…

But would she?

Coming March 2015


First let me start by screaming at you to read Livia Jamerlan if you haven’t already! I am completely blown away by both these books that I still shake my head in wonderment, asking myself why I haven’t read Livia Jamerlan earlier. Well crisis has been squashed and let me get to business.
Ok so yes I was gifted both books 1 and 2 in exchange for an honest review. Honestly speaking, I have never read a series where one book had a certain “air” to it only to come back to book 2 and be completely in the “dark” AND have the writing be so fluid, graceful and respectful. WOW! Loved it!
Consensual (book 1) basically is about the beginning of the adult life of Braelynn, fresh from graduating college, making her first steps into her career when she meets Haas. Smooth and sexy, Haas meets Lynn, and all bets to his no relationship status comes to a halt. Now if you are one of the many readers who have enjoyed other stories such as The Crossfire Series, you will love this dynamic. While Consensual is comparable in nature to that type of story, that is where all similarities end. Livia puts us into a cat and mouse game of wills between these two and their intertwining lives. Wanting so bad to be together but knowing it will come at a hefty price. But Holy Manolos!!! When these two do come together… let’s just say that Livia KNOWS how to write steamy bedroom scenes or even um… *cough* ballroom scenes. You’ll be thanking her too when you get to it!!  J Besides all that, you’ll come to love the way the words just flow naturally right off the page making you feel that you are watching every nuance of this first installment on the big screen.   (Easy 5 star read)
Now don’t get too caught up in all that’s flowing with feel good moments because as we come to the last page the vibe has changed and things start to get a little apprehensive. At this point is where I was most thankful that I had book 2 to jump right into …
I think at this point, it will be my intention to be vague. I may come back at a later time with an edit to this part of the review while leaving all original parts of course. I do however do not want to say too much about Coherent. It is my wish that all readers go into this book blind somewhat. In my opinion a truly good storyteller knows how to grow as the books grow and get more precise in detail and can become edgy without leaving the original imprint of what the story is about. Book 2 is that. Continuing with the same characters as the first book, we are in a very dark phase of their lives especially centering on Braelynn. When complete unfortunate, horrible circumstances happen we come face to face with the downward spiral into the dark abyss.  The hurt and angst that is brought from deep within is astounding! It’s this time when you really need to dig deep and make sure you have a glass of wine or your go to comfort drink.  The way Livia writes this beautifully tragic time is so good, there really is nothing else to say but READ IT! You will not be disappointed! I can’t wait for the next book which will be releasing in March 2015. What I also think holds the most irony is that for how beautifully and gorgeous Livia Jamerlan’s covers are, Coherent’s nature and the cover are in complete opposite with feeling!  LOL Nicely done Livia! J  (Again easy 5 Star read)

  y-B47c__Livia Jamerlan is the author of Divided. She is also a hopeless romantic who is always looking for her next love story to pop in her head. Though Livia kept a journal throughout her early life, she never thought about pursuing a career in writing. She always used it as form of therapy, pouring her heart out into words. It wasn’t until a story developed in her head that she decided maybe she could write a book. At first it was just an escape from reality, but now she uses it as a power to put all her feelings, hopes, and fears on paper. Deciding it was time to tell her story, she began to write. With each passing day the story grew, characters were formed, and what seemed like a hobby at first has now become a passion for Livia.

She is a New Jersey Native who loves spending time with her husband and two dogs Buddy and Daisy. When she is not writing or hiding behind her Kindle, you can find her with outside, gardening, at a local shopping center enjoying some retail therapy, or enjoy a pepperoni pizza
