Please note, this is a dark erotic horror novel with heavy psychological elements; it is not a dark romance novel.

When the line between fiction and reality bleeds, there is no end to the lies or a truth to be found.

It was never supposed to happen. He was supposed to remain a porn star—the source of my fantasies—in my expansive collection of torture porn. But he found me, and he only wants one thing from me. He calls it the ultimate orgasm; death.
He gives me the illusion of choice—my life or his.

I thought my choice would be the end of my troubles, but it followed me to a town known for its close-minded, small population and hypocritical way of thinking.

My madness lurks in the shadows. It watches me and seduces me with pretty smiles and dirty degradation. It assures me that my fantasies aren't wrong. It tells me that they will star in all of my nightmares…and I want nothing more.

Content contains strong violence, coarse language, graphic sex, scenes of horror, and situations that most readers would find objectionable. Reader discretion is highly advised.

ARIANNA’s Review


“You will end and begin with me, and you will love every fucking thing I make you feel.”

Dayum! What an enthralling read this one turned out to be. Courtney Lane delivered an unputdownable tale that will keep you at the edge of your seat from the very beginning, because trust me when I say the prologue will leave you for sure with your mouth hanging open, wanting more. Raw and twisted, ‘Opaque Mirrors’ was a fantastic erotic crime thriller that captivated me with its f@cked-up, depraved characters and its well-structured plot.

“Tonight, be who you really are with me, Whitney. Make me experience the final orgasm – my death.”

Whitney just needs a fresh start. After some crazy events in her past she just wants to forget about everyone and everything that happened. She moves in a bible loving small town hoping she will find peace. She tries hard to change who she is, remaining quiet not putting any effort in making new friends. All she wants is to live her new life in peace, but it seems the small town she chose is full of sinners. Maybe bigger sinners than her.


“The darkness I ran away from had returned to haunt me in an uncharted way.”

What comes next is a series of events that turn Whitney’s life upside down – a couple of murders, a depraved sex tape, a weird cop who seems to know some things about Whitney’s past wanting to make her his no matter what and so much more.

This was for sure one interesting read! This story was highly addictive. With every chapter I just wanted to know more. What is real and what is just Whitney’s imagination, who is the killer? Who will be next and so on… Like I mentioned above the story has some batsh*t crazy characters. All of them were fascinating to say the least and all of them were well portrayed.

The multitude of twists will definitely will f@ck up with your head and will make you question everything. Keep in mind the story is very graphic at times, so if you are not used with these kind of reads, then this is not the book for you. There are also some very explicit, depraved, erotic scenes that maybe will make you cringe…The idea is to start this book with an open mind.

“He’s my fucked up dreams made reality.”

Overall the story was well paced and I found the plot to be layered and fascinating. Both the psychological and dark/horror aspects of the story were done really well, being blend in a very thrilling way.

All in all, ‘Opaque Mirrors’ was a gripping read that will blow your mind with its twists and depravity and will make you question everything and every single one of these characters.
