A Dark Hedonistic Story – Consumed by Love by @PavartiKTyler – dark #erotica
Short Stories are an under-appreciated genre but with the advent of the electronic highway a world is brought together to join our love in specific genre writing. The quality as well as quantity of Anthologies and call for submissions allows for many writers to be connected to new publishers, and other writers, such as today’s author Pavarti, who is solely publishing with Evolved Publishing. In keeping with the of darkness, Halloween and things that go bump in the night this week, I present Pavarti K. Tyler’s Dark Horror Erotica. This story is one of my favorites and I have read it more than once. It is haunting and sticks to your ribs, so I suggest a Lite beer or a nice Pinot Grigorio to go with it, oh and sit on a towel!

To consume, such a glutinous statement. We hear it all the time, “Oh I am so full, I think I consumed enough for two people!” or that ever oh so dramatic thing that many of us are guilty of letting out, “I am consumed with rage or hate, with remorse or with love. We consume and are consumed every day with emotions, struggling each day and choosing to react or respond to these desires. For most of us, we keep a tap on the hedonistic pleasure of our consumption, whether it be bacon, chocolate or a second pumpkin spice caramel macchiato or not calling for the fifth time that afternoon just to say I love you. However, most of us do not have a power that spans beyond regular impulse, a power embedded and written into our genes that does not allow us to stop and those that do (raising and eyebrow) we have partners, family and friends that pull us back from the brink and set our bottle of darkness behind the dusty record player and bathe us in healthy things to do and to consume which eat up those unrealistic urges and needs.
This is a tale about being consumed by love. Between the two people who are the center of the story, each are consumed and are consuming each other in one form or another. It is a co-dependency of epic proportions. As dark and horrific as it is at base level, Pavarti K. Tyler has shown her talent to weave with words the passion so many of us feel for our true loves in such a startling and densely dark tale. Their love proves the age-old belief of love can conquer anything, no matter what others may argue or say. Even if it is learning to truly conquer something, you must allow it to consume you. In a realistic world this could and usually is true. I am a believer of stripping everything down to a base level to start building things back up, and when it comes to relationships, and illness of the body, mind, soul or as is with this couple, all the above. You have a fair to chance. Does this couple make it? Are their choices healthy or is there something more between the lines of this horrifying and beautiful love story? You will have to determine that on your own. You will have to go and grab it for a dark and dreary, preferably with your wooby and a jigger of whiskey added to your tea. Personally, I found them quite successful in their endeavor.
Recommended for those that like their horror dark, like their erotica off kilter and darker and have the brains to read between the lines.

She knocked it out of the park. It was beautiful, dark, disturbing, and an all consuming story that will delight all my wicked crazy ass twisted friends, and may open a few doors to those who did not realize would ever open!

I planned on doing a recipe with this, but I really did not want to spoil the review … especially with The Walking Dead’s… theme this year *smirking*. I will be doing a double header later this week with Pavarti’s new book, Dead Girl so watch for something with that… maybe. What can I say, the woman is a transgressive fiction writer!
