Dark Notes by Pam Godwin is LIVE! My 5 star review + Giveaway!


They call me a slut. Maybe I am.
Sometimes I do things I despise.
Sometimes men take without asking.

But I have a musical gift, only a year left of high school, and a plan.
With one obstacle.

Emeric Marceaux doesn’t just take.
He seizes my will power and bangs it like a dark note.
When he commands me to play, I want to give him everything.
I kneel for his punishments, tremble for his touch, and risk it all for our stolen moments.

He’s my obsession, my master, my music.
And my teacher.

Christy's 5 star review!

When I heard Pam Godwin was writing a student/teacher book, I jumped for joy. I love forbidden love stories and I love this author so I was fairly certain this would be a win for me. Every Pam Godwin book I read, I’m shocked by the beauty in her words and the stunning stories she writes. I’ve come to the conclusion that by now I should just be used to it. This is the fifth book I’ve read by this author and all of them have been fantastic 5-star reads. Friends- if you haven’t read this author you really need to! Don’t put it off! All her books are great. You can’t go wrong no matter what you chose.

Ivory is a seventeen-year-old girl going into her senior year at a prestigious music school. She many not belong there in a lot of ways- she lives in poverty while everyone else drives new cars, but she has one thing most of them don’t. Sheer talent. She is a protege piano player. She’s worked under the same teacher for the last three years. Now that teacher has retired, a new one took her place. His name is Emerick Marceaux. Emerick is there for one reason and one reason alone. His past has made it difficult for him to find teaching jobs, but this opportunity opened up to him so he’s going to take it.

Emerick and Ivory have this connection when they first meet. You can feel that zap between them. Ivory has been with a lot of men- but I never judged her. If anything, my heart completely broke for her situation. But not one of them has made her feel the way Mr. Marceaux makes her feel with just a look. Just a touch. And he isn’t immune to Ivory, either. Emerick can’t mess up the opportunity this job has allowed, but as time goes on, Ivory becomes more important to him than anything. Even his job.

“When we’re together, Ivory, when it’s just you and me like this, happiness can only be limed by us. We make the rules.”

You may think you’ve read one student/teacher romance, you’ve read them all. It’s not the case here. This was a unique situation. I know the H/h ages may be a little more taboo than some like (17 and 27) but once you read it and understand their situation, I’m fairly certain most won’t be bothered one bit by it. I know I wasn’t. Ivory was very mature for her age. She had so much strength and determination. Times in her life it would be so easy to just give up but she never did. And Emerick… there was something about this man! I couldn’t get enough of him. I loved how strongly and fiercely he felt about Ivory. He would do anything for her and she hasn’t had that type of love, loyalty or devotion in a long time. These two were perfect for one another.

If you enjoy a good forbidden love story or a student/teacher book- pick this one up! If you’re looking for a well written, sexy, dark (at times) all-consuming romance, this is the book for you! Pam Godwin’s writing is out of this world good and I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone! 5 stars!

“We’ll compose our own masterpiece. A song that will never end.”

Author bio

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Pam Godwin, lives in the Midwest with her husband, their two children, and a foulmouthed parrot. When she ran away, she traveled fourteen countries across five continents, attended three universities, and married the vocalist of her favorite rock band.

Java, tobacco, and dark romance novels are her favorite indulgences, and might be considered more unhealthy than her aversion to sleeping, eating meat, and dolls with blinking eyes.
