Blog Tour & Rachel's Review: The Watcher by Tara Crescent Packet


Her mother is seriously ill. Her job is tiring and stressful. There is darkness within her, a craving for pain and raw, hard sex. The mysterious Club Phoenix offers Kelly Mitchell all these things.
But surrendering control at the doors of the dungeon is an addictive feeling and with each visit, she fall further and further into oblivion.
All she has to protect her are her safe words and the carefully intent eyes of the Watcher. He is Kelly’s lifeline. But will he catch her before she loses herself completely? Will he keep her safe?
Will she even want him to?

Note: This is a dark read. Happy endings are optional. While all scenes are consensual, they are filled with harsh sadomasochism, anal play and humiliation.

 Rachel's Review~
OMG this was SOOOOO good.  I'm sure there was a lesson in there somewhere, but I was too engrossed in the story to try and figure it out.  I LOVED the dual choose the path Kelly should take!  Of course, first I chose the one I think she should choose, then I have to read the other!
I love Tara Crescent's writing.  It's always such an easy entertaining read...and by easy I mean her writing flows so smoothly, it's effortless to read.  Her word choice resonates...

~I seek refuge in the other world I live in.  A shadowy world. One with the dank brick walls of a dimly lit dungeon, the muffled clanking of rusty chains and the drip of a leaking tap in the corner.  A world in which strange men use me for their pleasure, indifferent to my own desires.
This was a short and extremely erotic BDSM based read.  The prologue starts right out amazingly well written and the humiliation, degradation, and a healthy dose of voyeurism follow throughout the entirety of the book, so if that's a turn off for you, then you may want to give this one a pass.
~I could pick the men in leather masks that would whip me and hurt me, debase me and humiliate me.  I could drown in the depths in the Watcher's green eyes when he looked at me.
I loved Miles and how he treated Kelly!
In my opinion this story was the perfect length for this type of story.  Just enough to be extremely enjoyable, but not so long that it rambles or so short that you're left disappointed.
I have to rate this one a couple different ways...
5 Stars overall and a gazillion in the sexy as fuck category!

Author Bio:
Hello, I’m Tara Crescent. I’ve always fantasized about being a mysterious spy, leading a secret double-life, and now, I find that that’s come true!
Sort of.
By day, I’m a mild-mannered corporate drone in Toronto, but by night, I’m limited only by my imagination; I sit, and I type, and I am a daring writer of BDSM, erotica and romance.
In my spare time, I write of course. I also read, garden, travel, cook, and almost never clean. I just started watching Walking Dead on Netflix (zombie erotica, anyone?), and I’m impatiently awaiting the next episode of Doctor Who. (I would kill for a TARDIS.)
I’ve scribbled bits and pieces all my life, chiefly inspired by what I’m reading, which tends to be mainly science-fiction and fantasy, with a healthy sprinkling of romance and erotica thrown in.
I’m a huge believer in happily-ever-after, but tempered by real life, where happily-ever-after is possible, but takes work. My favorite kind of romance stories are ones that are somewhat believable; I like strong men and women who know what they want out of life, and are driven to get it.
I love reader email; I can be reached at
Happy reading and writing!
