Mia visits a couple of weeks before Seth and he goes to celebrate his birthday. Neither visit goes as planned and a nightmare takes over their lives.
Read of their struggles and find out if they get their HEA. :)
Decadence is a standalone novel by Lynnette Brisia and is definitely for fans of dark reads! I was looking for something different to read, don’t get me wrong I love a romance with a HEA but sometimes you just want something different and I definitely got that with this book! It was unlike anything that I have read before. It was dark, gritty, sexy and I definitely questioned what I had read once it was over but I loved every single minute of it! I loved that I went into this book thinking one thing and it was totally turned on its head! There is absolutely no way that I could have ever predicted that storyline and the twists and turns it would take. With every turn of the page you question just what is going on in that club!
This is my first read by this author and I have to say I was really impressed. She has a great ability to write dark romance stories and I will definitely be looking to read more from her in the future. Her writing captivated me from the very beginning and even after I had finished reading I still wanted more.
I loved Seth and Mia – the situation they found themselves in was difficult but the connection they had was great. Seth really and truly cared for Mia – he felt this instant pull towards her and knew that he wanted to be with her. Mia was quiet and had such a sad background story of which more emerged towards the end of the story. I loved Seth and Mia together.
I am definitely looking forward to reading more by this author in the future and if dark romance is your go to genre then you will not be disappointed in this book!!

Mia and Seth are two different people with two different lives that are thrown into the world of Decadence. They are chosen to be performers together, they have strict rules to follow and If they don't do what they're told or do the job properly, there will be consequences, and they won't be good. They're forced, they're coerced, but they're willing as well. So much happens in the big red room with the bed, they don't know what's real and what's not.
This book has such an interesting concept. The storyline is so unique. It's thrilling and suspenseful, it had me on the edge of my seat. I didn't know what was going to happen next, I didn't know who was coming in next. There were twists at every chapter and it left me wanting more. Decadence is a well-rounded book with crazy, interesting characters, a compelling story, and bringing all the sexiness to the pages.
Decadence is not suitable for younger readers. It's probably not going to be for everyone's reading tastes anyways. There is graphic sexual content, and themes that may trigger some readers. If you can handle all that, then I highly recommend.
It is Seth Ryan's birthday so why not a night on the town and to a strip club at that. Something doesn't seem to fit with this strip club, something just isn't right. You will never experience anything so erotic, the staff are unmatched and the private dances are just a part of it. What will happen when he meets a girl with vines that go up and down her body? He can't seem to get her out of his head. When intrigue turns into obsession then into a nightmare no one expected especially the secrets that have been uncovered. What will Seth do when he finds out that he is not the only one obsessed with her? When the owner of the strip club has plans for Seth, will it put him in danger? What does a red room and one girl have to do with anything? Will this strip club be his downfall? Everyone is welcomed at this club but will it be the last place they ever visit again?
Seth has become so obsessed with this girl that he can't seem to function. What hold does she have on him? Is because she looks like a porcelain doll with a tattoo that goes up her body. Things are not as they appear to be in this club. One question is what does this girl have to do with what is happening at the club? Is this a dream that has become a reality or will he wake up from this whole mess? There are some strong characters in this story. Seth is a very likable person and one that you will find yourself relating to. The girl is one that won't turn down a challenge nor walk away from one. She is kind of mysterious in a way. They will leave you asking questions that you may or not find answers to. They both are on a discovery but what they find may not be what they want. Will their discovery put them in danger? What about the secrets that are being uncovered, how will they effect this story? Have things gotten out of control for them or is someone else all of a sudden have control that they shouldn't have? The secondary characters are just as strong and complement the main characters. You will enjoy them just as much. Find out what happens to Seth and the others as they walk through the doors of a strip club.
This is my first story by Lynnette Brisia and I know it won't be the last. I can't wait to see what this author has for us next. Lynnette loves to travel and history. Besides her love of writing she also loves to read, listen to music and painting. She collects tattoos and enjoys stories that will break your heart while giving you a happy ending. You will enjoy how this story is fast paced, it will keep you engaged until the end. You will enjoy the dark twists these characters bring to this story. You will have a hard time putting this book down. You will need to see what is lurking behind every page and it will keep you turning pages. I highly recommend this story as I know you will want to see what happens when you walk through the doors of this strip club!
Decadence by Lynnette Brisia is one of those books that you come away from asking yourself, “what did I just read?”…. It is dark, twisted and suspenseful. I had so many questions throughout the book; I felt that I really had to keep reading because I needed answers and to find out where the story would take me.
The story starts with Seth Ryan who is on a guy’s night out with his friends who have taken him to a strip club to celebrate Seth’s twenty-first birthday. They all have a great night and Seth ends up quite hung over the next day which he regrets because he has to attend classes at college. He ends up breaking up with his girlfriend that day as well, just to add to his discomfort.
Then we meet Mia, who is out at the same club with work colleagues, who have coaxed her out and are determined to wind down from a very long work week. She is amused at their antics and drunken attempts to pick up the sexy waitresses and dancers. As she is the only girl in the group, they tease her and try to embarrass her by buying her a lap dance in one of the private rooms. But Mia’s not about to shy away from their challenge and enters the private room with determination and a major dose of curiosity.
She is about to discover what club Decadence is all about and what delights await the patrons in the private rooms. After all Decadence has a reputation of being the premier establishment with only the very best ‘staff’. What happens in the room? What will Mia discover? She has no idea that this experience is about to turn her world upside down and will consume every aspect of her life.
Ryan returns again with his friends to the club for another night out and he can’t help but notice one girl in particular. She has the most exquisite porcelain skin with a beautiful vine tattoo swirling over her body. She adds to the exotic and erotic atmosphere of the club and he can’t seem to get her out of his head. But, he soon realises that something in not quite right with the club. Things are definitely not what they appear to be. As the story progresses and things are revealed this erotic dream turns into a chilling nightmare. Someone has their eye on Seth with plans for his future. What happens at the club? What discoveries does Seth make? Is it all an erotic dream, or a nightmare that he may never escape from? Exactly who is the girl with the vine tattoo and what part does she play in the whole story?
This story really messed with my mind. The characters were intriguing, as was the premise of the story. I really wanted to discover all the goings on in the club and get to the bottom of it all. But I ended up with a few issues with the book. I found it was a little slow to get going and was somewhat confusing in the way it was laid out. I understand that the author was trying to build the suspense, drama and tension- which she did do to a degree, but in a way that made me frustrated with the story, instead of immersed in it.
I understand what the author was trying to achieve, but I just couldn’t connect with the story or the characters the way I would have liked to. I am intrigued enough by this story to read more of the authors work in the future.
Thank you Ms. Brisia!

5 out of 5 stars
The story Decadence by Lynnette Brisia is a new adult/suspense/romance book. This is a story that I found myself thinking about long after finishing. It is written in a way that grabs your attention and holds it to the very last page. It is the first book I have read by that author and I find that she takes a situation that would be considered dark and gives you a reason to hold on to hope. This is the story of Seth. It’s his birthday and he celebrates it by going out to a strip club. After being provided a private dance, he can’t stop thinking of the woman he sees with the vine tattoos. It leads to an obsession and that leads to danger. What happens next could only be considered harrowing for all involved. Will Seth and the others survive their trip to the club called Decadence?
This story includes scenes that made me question the reasons and motives of certain characters. There are those who I consider “evil” and I found their actions so out of the norm that it had me feeling very angry. However, to tell this story these characters actions must be written. There are also those characters that have an unbelievable strength to go on and overcome any odds. It makes me believe good things can come out of even a bad situation. Seth is a wonderful character and one that you can identify with. He is caught in a situation that is beyond his control and still, he doesn’t let this stop either his will to survive or his ability to reach out and help others. Seth is a man that is determined to survive. What will his survival involve? This is a book that had my emotions all over the place. That this book made me feel angry, sad, and hopeful all at the same time shows that the author knows how to weave a story and create characters that are unforgettable. Read this story to find out what happens to Seth and those who find themselves in the same situation. This book does include scenes with adult situations and I would suggest this story for those 18 years of age or over only.
Sth meets Mia at a strip club called Decadence. He becomes obsessed almost instantly and is intrigued by her tattoo. But all is not as it seems at the club, and they are both cast in a nightmare that neither of them could comprehend, and a horror they may never be free of. All Seth wanted was a really good night out, but ends up getting way more than he bargained for.
The connection between Seth and Mia is immediate. So is the burning attraction they feel. It grows more intense every day, which possibly helps them retain a little sanity in this strange and deadly situation they find themselves in.
Decadence is a tale with many surprises and shocks. It isn’t for the faint hearted. Seth and Mia struggle to make sense of this nightmare and the race for survival becomes the most important fight they have ever been in. The fight for their lives.
Lynette Brisia is an extremely talented author. Decadence takes the reader on a journey of danger, darkness, evil, violence and sex. But Decadence also delivers a story of two people who find each other in the most harrowing of circumstances, develop insanely deep feelings for each, despite the trauma they have endured. It iss a love story with a difference. There are no soft or fluffy edges, no warm and fuzzy moments that warm your heart and give you those feel good tingles. But Decadence still shines beautifully in its harshness.
I recommend Decadence for lovers of a romance with a twist. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I was amazed at the author's ability to shock, yet dazzle me. 5 stars for Decadence
