Publisher's Summary

The taboo turns me on.

The dirty. The filthy. The nasty.

The man your mother f--king warned you about - is me.

Hold onto your panties, ladies.

Lucas Carter is here to show you the dark side of the sheets.

Warning: This is a dark romance erotica - meaning lots of violence, sex, and emotionally disturbing inner dialogue. The main character does not, however, kidnap or force himself on women. The entire book is told in his point of view. This story does contain murder, tough choices, and strange sex.

This book is entirely fictional, and the sexual techniques described within can be extremely dangerous. Listen to Lucas' story to spice up your sex life, have a little fun, and watch a man consumed by darkness grow into a different person. Please don't take any of the acts described within as instructional and always remember, safety first.

C.M. Stunich + Jason Clarke = LucasCarter

"Taboo Unchained" by CM Stunich. CM Stunich’ molten provocative composition, narrated by the ridiculously erotic alpha voice of Jason Clarke, has become my addiction for that past 2.5 weeks. I already know it’s going to be difficult to impossible, to dethrone "Taboo Unchained". I read another book narrated by Jason Clarke, over the weekend. It was a very well written erotic thriller. I enjoyed it and would recommend it, but "Taboo Unchained" nestles down into the depths of my sexy soul. Had I read the book via Kindle, I would’ve no doubt enjoyed it; however, Jason Clarke’s narration is just badass wicked from start to finish. CM Stunich, You are a gifted wicked language architect. A thousand thank yous, my dear!!!

CM Stunich is genius!

As always I was floored by 'this author's work. I had not heard of this title until I saw her post on Facebook so decided to give it a try. I also have never had an Audio book. I was not disappointed on either account. It was a dark read but I could not put it down. I never right reviews but felt I needed to get CM Stunichs name out there for anyone looking for something new to read. All her books are amazing. Once you read this try Hard Rock Roots Series and the Never Series, they are by far my favorite series ever! And Jason did an awsome job! No other voice would have done. When Lucas struggles within you can hear it in his voice. It gave me chills! Great job guys.

Beyond dark - Corrupted Soul - but...

Even though II couldn't finish this one, this author writes really well. It was dark, yes; it was erotic, yes. I read the reviews and thought I'd try it, warnings be damned. This is not dark as in BDSM, but rather more of a dark and irredeemably corrupted soul with no humanity. The author writes really well, and the narrator does a wonderful job; however, the material was just too disturbing for me. I'm so grateful Audible has a return policy; it allowed me to "taste" something out of my comfort level. This one was just too much (for me) but I'm glad I tried it.

Oh. My. God.

It took about ten seconds of hearing Jason Clarke's sultry voice to know that even if the story itself was total shit, it wouldn't stop me from listening to it. The man could literally melt your panties off with a single sentence.

That being said, his performance (the perfection of which words can almost not describe) merely enhanced what was already an exceptionally well written character. There is something so raw, so visceral, about Lucas Carter that instantly captivated me. I think I fell in love with him a little, demon and all.

I originally borrowed this title as part of the Audible Romance Package, but less than halfway through used a full credit because I knew I would listen to it over. And over. And over. That in itself says a lot because out of the 500+ audiobooks in my library, I have never listened to one twice.

It's like Dexter with a tawdry twist...without darkness we could never see the light.

...unpredictable & exceptionally well written- edgier than the darkest intrigue yet so arrestingly shocking you feel compelled to know where this story is leading next. Twisted,unique & clever storyline (sans graphic exploitation) it was a surprise within this genre. Taboo's excellent narrator delivered a devilishly delicious portrayal of the demonic passenger living inside the soul of Lucas Carter whose cursed existence led him to adopting darkly perverse methods of dealing with the loss of innocence & his one true love. his sadness is so unbearable it propels him towards the darkest taboo, sins of the flesh, & vigilantism. Sorted take on Dexter with a much darker tawdriness...definitely not for the faint of heart!

WOW

Dark romance is not my thing. Gave this book a try and OHHHH MMYYYY GOOODDDD! I wanted to save Luke and protect him. Like and Audria deserved to be happy but I'm happy that Luke chose Roby. He deserves to have his happily ever after bathe in light and not the monsters. Audria will find her HEA with someone else.

Best ever!

This is in my top 5, and I've listened to many audiobooks.

Unique story line. Thoroughly developed characters. Dark humour. Really kinky.

A repeat listen.

Perfect narration.

Dark, disturbing and sooo hot!

Wow! Caitlin Stunich’s mind and imagination...just wow! This was decidedly different from most of her books I’ve read, but it was just as captivating. The story was dark and messed up AF! But I just didn’t want to stop listening to it. It would be way too easy to give spoilers, so I won’t. But the backstories of all these characters were sad and scary and it lead to some disturbing behavior.
It was like the show “Dexter” as a kind of a warped romance. Absolutely fascinating and addictive! As with most of the really good books one reads, you want to get through it faster to see what happens, but you don’t want it to end. It was great!
And holy hotness! Jason Clarke was masterful! That deep but detached voice... and the little chuckles. I wanted to listen to another ten hours of him. And yet again, not used to hearing him as this dark a character. But he was fabulous!
I enjoyed this so much in Audible Escape that I returned it and purchased it for my library!

Dark Dark Dark

Very interesting read. C.M. Stunich writes well and Jason Clarke is an exceptional narrator. The story line is very dark, involving murder and serious BDSM scenes. It pushes the boundaries on blood play and electro eroticism. At the same time, it's not inundated with X scenes. It's not predictable and kept me captivated until the end.

Loved it!

Amazing! A few years ago I tried to listen to this audiobook and did not like it. Honestly, my raging feminist could not comprehend that women liked things done to them like that. Fast forward a couple of years and I have slowly brought myself into accepting it through different books and this has become one of my favourites. I always love reading books by C.M Stunich and I couldn't believe that I didn't like one of her books, so I decided to give it another go. This is a romance between the male protagonist and a woman which took me a while to realise when reading this. If you have realised that you are ok with reading rough play and want to read a really cute but twisted romance between two people, this book may just be for you. I would definitely recommend it if it is and hope you love it just as much as I do. Enjoy!
