Review: Eighty Days Yellow

Eighty Days Yellow
Eighty Days Yellow by Vina Jackson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

EIGHTY DAYS YELLOW is an erotically dark and at times frustrating tale of Domination and submission.

A native of New Zealand, Summer is now living in London and aspiring to play the beautiful music she creates with her treasured violin. Lately, she has to make do with waiting tables and busking on the streets to make ends meet. In addition to the less than stellar career, her love life is also suffering as she is in a repressive relationship with vanilla man – though she cannot put her finger on what is missing, she knows their sex life is void of the dark passion she longs for.

On one fateful night, Summer finds herself in the wrong place at the right time when a fight breaks out and her treasured violin is damaged beyond repair. In the depths of despair, Summer contemplates her options; none of which are appealing and in the end comes up with nothing.

Dominik, the handsome university professor, is enamored by the music created by the crimson-haired beauty he encounters on the street. When he learns of her troubles, he hatches a plan to solve both their problems – her need to create music and his need to fulfill his darker desires. In an effort to lure her in without scaring her away, he starts out with a simple solution to her problem: he will replace her violin if she will play for him in a private concert. Well, of course, you know neither can stop there…

The undeniable spark between the two quickly turns into a full out blaze as they explore the tastes of the dark side of loving. As with all great stories, there are many obstacles the lovers are forced to overcome – namely the seemingly never-ending string of conniving “friends” in their lives. Who do you trust when your trusted friends are working against you?

Can they overcome their fears enough to fall in love or will they forever stuck in between their desires and what society deems as a normal loving relationship?

On several occasions, I thought I knew where the story was going, only to be surprised with the path author, Vina Jackson chose. I loved the uncertainty I felt as a reader regarding the motivations and final destinations of the characters. At times, I felt rage on Summer’s behalf and anger with her for putting herself through the torment she endured.

Though I was satisfied with the ending, I feel like there is more to the story and hope the author gives us eighty more days of yellow. Darkness, domination, submission and a medium amount of humiliation – if you enjoy this type of kink, then you will enjoy the passion and drama captured within the pages of EIGHTY DAYS OF YELLOW.
