Review: The Dark Art of Persuasion (The Dark Side Trilogy #1.5) by Ashe Barker

This is a new experience for Nathan Darke, and he doesn’t like it. Not one little bit.

Ever since the shy, enigmatic little violin tutor turned up in his home to give private lessons to his daughter, all he can think of is the private performance he’d like to treat her to himself. Eva fascinates and irritates him in equal measure. He’s determined to have her surrender. And he’s not prepared to wait any longer. He’s in a constant state of arousal whenever she’s near, and Nathan is not accustomed to being told no by a woman. This has to be resolved. Soon.

He wants her on her back, tied to his bed, naked. All that and more. But first, he needs to find a way to get past Eva’s timid reserve, convince her that she could submit to him—and love it.

Eva should be easy prey for experienced, dominant Nathan Darke. He can easily intimidate her, command her. But he needs to coax her round to his way of thinking, convince her that she truly wants to explore romance on the dark side. This promises to require all his powers of seduction, usually so effortless.

Will Eva be able to resist, or will she succumb to the dark art of persuasion?

Ms Barker has done it again! The Dark Art of Persuasion is a quick read from Nathan’s point of view and oh boy is it HOT. This yummy tidbit takes place during the first book however; I read it after reading the series and found it a perfect chaser. Nathan, Nathan, Nathan…you are a wicked boy! I don’t want to give anything away but let me say, this quick read took me about 20 minutes to devour and had me heading back to reread this scene from Eva’s POV. This was definitely the perfect read for me to get over the post-series coma and a great way to spend more time with Nathan and Eva. A must read for anyone who has read The Dark Side Trilogy!
