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.

Poverty can hamper most people from achieving their dreams. For Ivory – her education and future was a product of her situation. As a scholarship recipient at a prestigious private school, Ivory knew her time at the high school was under a microscope. Ivory certainly didn’t fit the ‘mold’ for the student population. There were no new shoes each year, clothes that came with price tags or the luxury of a cell phone. Those were only things that Ivory dreamed of having. The reality was a life on the wrong side of the tracks that Ivory hoped to ultimately ‘escape’.

There was one thing that Ivory had that her fellow students didn’t…..TALENT!! It was the force that drove the young beauty to devote so much time to her craft. A connection to the father that she lost too early in life. The one thing that secured her spot in the school. Well….that was the case until this school year. Now her favorite teacher is gone and Ivory’s future hangs in the wake. A fate that that rests solely in the hands of Emeric Marceaux…..Ivory’s new music teacher.

Emeric is certainly not at this school for the thrill of it. His tattered past has led him on this course. One that would introduce him to the student that captivated Emeric from the moment she stepped foot in his class. A chemistry was instantaneous, but certainly forbidden. After all – Emeric had obligations that threatened Ivory’s future. The only question was if Ivory was worth the risk.

Oh my word……why in the world did it take me so long to read this book???? Clearly I was missing out!! For those that are skeptical of a student/teacher romance….put those reservations aside. Dark Notes is unlike any taboo romance. Written with a unique story plot that kept me engaged from the very first page. A tale about love that clearly is unlike any others.

The writing in this novel was so intense. The descriptions and plot made me feel like I had a front seat to this tale. One that kept me hooked from beginning to end. It’s a story about the choices we make when faced with hardships, judgments, and the love of a lifetime. A true piece of literary work that should not be missed!! Pam Godwin just moved to the front of my ‘must read’ author list!!
