    I literally could not read this story fast enough. I needed to know if my thoughts were correct, I needed questions answered and the ending... It had me reeling in a brilliant way with the kind of cliff-hanger I crave.

    The third person narrative easily flows keeping all the many moving pieces perfectly in play allowing the reader to garner the thoughts and feelings of the multiple characters that have a stake in this complex depth ridden story. As the narrative develops so too do the complexities of the story arc but I never once felt lost within the intelligent writing that had me gripped from beginning to end. I appreciated the way information is naturally imparted through the course of the prose, driving the story forward, creating suspense along with a trail of clues. The story arc is daring, carnal and erotic with intelligent writing that places Ana Medeiros in my #MustRead author list. There’s murder, mystery and sex, with a heavy dose of intrigue laced with secrets and lies. There are elements that are completely gripping and others that hold your heart and soul. This is not a romance per se but my emotions had the perfect workout and ached for the book hero and the world surrounding him.

    Doctor Julian Reeve is enigmatic and mysterious, a loner in many ways who enjoys the pleasures of the female body. His tumultuous past and mysterious persona is unveiled throughout the course of the highly engaging prose, depicted through his dialogue with friends, sexual proclivities and work.

    Meredith is strong. She freely explores her sexuality with both men and woman, as is the understanding in the mutually open and respectful relationship she shares with Julian. They understand each other’s sexual mentality and openness and, at times it requires the reader to suspend their usual relationship morality codes of practice and open their mind to the way these characters choose to live.

    The sexual content is high. Sensually erotic and lusciously delightful with a kinky nature that may involve more than two people, but in many ways feels almost like a by-product of the story, something that absolutely has to happen because this is who the characters are. If it isn’t shown then it would be like experiencing the missing piece of a jigsaw... it would not be a complete story without the full exploration of the sexual content.

    There's a catalogue of supporting players. Some I love more than others but all are engaging, character driven and play a crucial role with the protagonists in the building blocks of this story. One can’t help but believe they all have an important role to play within the proceedings of this erotic suspense.

    I have to stress that this story will not be to everyone's tastes. It doesn't offer a conventional love story or sweet romance. Its raw and sensual with characters who live out their sexual fantasies and bask in the openness of their relationships with a total exploration of sexual partnerings. That said, if you're of an open-fictional-mind, like to be able to think your way through a complex story, theorize and surmise... discover that your thoughts are indeed right and still have more thoughts to consider.... If you like to be thrilled and maybe pushed a little out of your comfort levels and experience great writing than this is a MUST READ story and I highly recommend it.

    *Note: The Raven Room is the first part in a three part Erotic Suspense Series. Parts two and three should both be released during 2016

    WARNING: THE RAVEN ROOM is shrouded in both mystery and erotic content, enter with caution and enjoy!

    .... Wow, just Wow. I honestly can't say much, because it is a story you have to live through. Each and every single word a piece to a puzzle of a place where your deepest darkest desires can come alive, if your brave enough to face them.

    has quite the reputation to protect; one breath of his extra curricular activities and everything he has worked so hard for can disappear in a blink of an eye. But knowing he has to feed the darkness in him, he seeks out what he needs behind the black door.

    is Julian's young and eager lover, willing to try anything and everything trusting Julian to take her there. There is no love between them, just pure passion. He has taken her under his wing, and with that comes his protection, willing her to be cautious of her curiosity...after all curiosity killed the cat.

    While he gives into his time with Meredith, there is something missing, something he needs, but we don't always get what we want, do we... Trying to make heads or tails of the mess Julian finds himself in, he is torn between wanting to protect and wanting to harm.

    is unlike anything I have ever read before, it's mystery guides you along a tale where secrets and desires are kept behind closed doors. It is not a tale that one can go into to much detail, but the passion, the lust and the anticipation is felt throughout the pages. Julian is a man of control, and it's his control that protects those around him, scared to let loose the demons that try to break free. Meredith although young, is refreshing in the story as she fully accepts the reality of her life and doesn't take anything too seriously. At times you'd think she was the adult and not the other way around.

    The Raven Room draws you in and holds you hostage, there are twists and turns and a wild card thrown in to add to the mystery of it all as we try to piece together the answers. While love does play a part in this, it is not the main focus of this passionate tale, it calls on more discovery of ones true desires and an acceptance of one's self. It is a highly intoxicating read one suited more for those who have a darker appetite. This is not a stand-alone read, Julian and Meredith's story continues on and I can't see what happens next.

    is a contemporary blend of mystery, romance, kink, and passion. The hero is quite damaged and seeks fulfillment in some very dark places!

    Julian is a well educated child psychologist. He appears to have everything together. And yet, Julian has dark desires that he explores in The Raven Room a secret sex club nestled in the bustling city of Chicago. In addition to his frequent trips to the club, he has fallen into a comfortable sexual relationship with a young journalism major named Meredith.

    Meredith enjoys sex with Julian and yet, she has an even deeper desire to excel in her career. She hopes to use her relationship with Julian to investigate the secret sex club and write an expose' that will give her notoriety in the journalism world.

    The Raven Room's patrons are among Chicago's elite and they are able to "play" under the mask of anonymity. However when a dead body is discovered, questions are asked and the patrons of the Raven Room are all suspects! While Julian is thrust into the middle of the investigation he becomes enraptured by a young girl he met at the club named Alana.

    Told in multiple POV,

    is full of intrigue and mystery. With an undertone of "sexy kink" and a heavy dosage of emotional turmoil, the characters undergo extreme transformation. I found particularly drawn to Julian as he is such a emotionally driven individual. Additionally, I was quite intrigued with Meredith and her tenacity. Alana is still a bit of a mystery to me. As a reader, I wasn't able to identify a central couple in this book. In my opinion, this book is focused on Julian. Although Meredith and Alana play a critical role in the story, for me, it was unclear who Julian should ultimately end up with. I wouldn't identify this read as having a love triangle per say. However, the dynamics are unstable as the plot continues to develop. Ms. Medeiros has created a unique plot line with intriguing characters. What is most appealing to this read is the alluring setting of the Raven Room and the mysteries that are hidden behind those closed doors!

    Overall,

    was an enjoyable read. I felt like the central plot could have been a bit more streamlined however, I anticipate the questions that I have will be answered in the next installment of the series. I look forward to seeing how this story progresses. If you are a fan of murder/mystery books (and you don't mind a touch of the "dark and sexy genre") then this is the read for you! I can only hope for a HEA for Julian, Meredith, and Alana! Until then, my kindle will be waiting!

    Third Person

    Julian Reeve was a successful child psychologist. Behind the façade, he hid a darker side that could threaten his future. Burdened by his sexual proclivities, he used the underground BDSM club The Raven Room to have his needs satisfied. But something had been keeping him away, until a woman lured him back in.

    Meredith Dalton was an aspiring journalist looking for her breakout story. She was determined to expose the depravities of Chicago’s high society by writing an article about The Raven Room and Julian was her ticket into that world. What she didn’t realized, behind the decadent red walls laid secrets big enough to kill.

    What first attracted me to this book was the promise of dark sexual perversion. I am drawn to degenerates like a moth to a flame. This book certainly got plenty of immoral activities to satisfy my need lol!

    I do like Julian when he was acting secretive and mysterious – when he was acting his age and profession. I love vulnerabilities in characters but there were a few moments he was too clueless and immature for my liking.

    I didn’t really like Meredith when I first met her. But over time, among all of the characters in the book she was the one I could connect the most. She was detached and driven by ambition, but at the same time she still has conscience.

    There were a lot of characters in the book. What I love about it was the characters were very diverse in term of their lifestyle/social status/ethnicity. However, it could be the very reason why I had hard time connecting with them – most of them just barely scratching the surface.

    Story wise, there were a lot of things going on in the book. Generally, I do like that because it will keep me thinking, but in this case, I felt it was a little unfocused. There were a few scenes I didn’t see the need to be there. Maybe it served a purpose for future books, which I hope so. I'd also like to see more "showing" instead of "telling".

    Yes this is a series, but personally I still like each book to have a sense of conclusion. A few questions were answered but there were still matters that didn’t connect yet.

    The Raven Room is a mystery/suspense with erotic elements. It delved into the seedy underworld of kink and crime where everyone seems to be hiding something sinister under their beds.
