Product description

Product Description

**WARNING** This book is intended for mature audiences only due to explicit sexual content as well as the graphically violent and psychologically disturbing nature of some scenes.

Sometimes you reach a point where you just can’t take anymore—a breaking point, some call it. The day I watched my husband murder the woman who was pregnant with his child, my point didn’t just break; it exploded like a full magazine’s worth of hollow points firing through the barrel of a fully-automatic AK-47. Literally. I am no longer his American Princess, nor am I his slave. Now, I’m a murderer in hiding. My name was Bryleigh Carter Oliveira, and that was my story.

Translucent is one woman's story of breaking free, starting over, and learning to trust again through willful submission.

Sometimes shocking, definitely gripping. As per usual Erin Noelle delivers an exquisite production that will trap you in its pages and linger in your mind. A dark, challenging read with a beautiful love story and a chance at redemption.
Blake Martin has a new job, a new name, a new life. She has escaped hell, but it follows her in her dreams. She's a hollow shell, devoid of anything resembling life. When Blake meets Madden Decker, CEO of the tech company she now consults for, he lights a spark inside her again. Instincts tell her to keep everyone out, but Madden doesn't take no for an answer.
Madden lays eyes on Blake across the boardroom table and can't tear them away. She's all sorts of gorgeous and submissive, awakening his dominant side. Madden is very protective and caring towards Blake, right from the start. He quickly realizes she has deep wounds nobody can see. His dominant personality takes control, removing her burdens and pushing away the ghosts of her past for a while. He has his own past he'd rather not relive and a brother who is more like a troublesome child. Only, the trouble he gets himself into also drags Madden along with it.
Blake knows it's only a matter of time before the devil finds her. She did something terrible and retaliation will come. Mafia retaliation. Being with Madden makes her believe she can enjoy whatever time she has left before it all falls apart. She no longer has to hide in her lonely apartment or catalogue every face when she's out. Madden accepts her crazy episodes and knows not to push her to share the awful details about what triggers them. She never wants to tell him. He'll look at her with disgust instead of seeing her as his Sweet Girl. She's going to hold on to that ... for as long as it lasts.
Okay, wow.

Bryleigh once allowed herself to see what she wanted to see. She wanted to see the beautiful exotic older man as the hero of all her dreams. The one who would make everything in her life that wasn't terrible, and turn it into something absolutely wonderful ... and he never went out of his way to correct her.

Lies and secrets however have a way of coming out and when they do, nothing will ever be the same, and as the nightmare she was living blithely unaware, crashes into her life full force, leading her to address the situation the only way she can think of, with the business end of a gun.

Then comes the arduous task of rebuilding her life, while essentially on the run. New name, new identity, new city, and nary a single hint of a support system as she takes one more stab at that old adage ... get a life.

Then another handsome stranger enters her new life, putting his hand up to be that support system she so desperately needs ... and to be so much more, but how on earth can you build a relationship ... how can you build trust ... when your very life depends on keeping secrets and telling lies?

Translucent, by Erin Noelle​ was an absolutely fantastic read. I didn't just love Blake (formerly known as Bryleigh), but I loved how her reactions, her thoughts, her behaviors and fears all made perfect sense in the horribly unlikely scenario she found herself in. She's not the ridiculously buoyant heroine who has the severe emotional trauma she's endured wash off her like water of a ducks back, but neither is she wrapped up in a straight jacket rocking in the corner 24/7.

She struggles, and there's beauty in that, beauty that Madden is drawn to, and if I'm honest, I'm drawn to it too.

5.0 out of 5 stars holly cow...Loved it! 23 June 2014

She did it again. yet another great read from Erin and total shocker to me. Its about Blake where she is slowly starting to overcome her fears of her past life. she don't like to socialize with people as that can bring on her anxiety attacks and that a when it all starts where she's put in a situation to have a meeting at work. It's then she meets Madden (new bbf) that tries to get her to open up. she slowly starts letting people into her life but has closed lips about her past. she's afraid to get close to anyone but Madden knows its a lot to take on and determined to break her shell. Her past is what haunts her and her worrying it will affext her future. So much more but dont want to spoil it. Must read book LOVED it can't wait till the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST Read 24 June 2014

Devoured is the one word i would use to describe what i did to this book. I was patiently waiting for the release of Translucent and it did not disappoint.
There are few books that grab a hold of me, don't let me go and this one was one of them. Erin did a phenomenal job with this one. I love all of her books but this one blew the rest out of the water. Its got darkness, passion, suspense, all things i love in a book. This is definitely on the top of my best reads for 2014.
Bryleigh and Madden are just.. Gah i feel for Bryleigh, i want to jump in this book and hug her. Madden oh Madden! He is an Alpha male sex god, he has his life together, know what he wants and is just sexy. Just when you think you know what is going to happen BOOM the story changes. I can not wait till book 2. This was a truly incredible story

Gutted, completely and utterly gutted. I've read all of Erin's books and I've been a huge fan of all of them, but this one takes the prize! She made me laugh cry worry swoon and then completely kills me! I love this story more than any words can say especially without spoilers so I'll leave it at this: DON'T miss this book! An absolute must read! You'll never be the same after meeting Blake and Madden (ahh Madden <3)

The Prologue got me...As soon as I read it I knew that I was going to love this book and fall in love with the characters in this story. I am a huge music person, whether I am happy, sad, or mad I have to have music. So when i see It Ends Tonight by the All-American Rejects printed under the title Prologue I knew at that ever moment that bad stuff happens in this book. Why? Well because of this very song that I actualy have on my playlist, that I listen to everyday...that is why.
Bryleigh Carter Oliveria is a very young women and she fell into the hands of one sick ass bastard! She was young and naive but in all honesty who isnt at 17 years old?! She met this amazing loving man who showered her with gifts and effection. Then the real monster started to show and then she realized she was in too deep living witht he devil himself. Then her entire life ends holding an AK-47!
"Start over. Forget about everyone you care about and everything that's happened in the past. It's your only chance to stay alive." This is what you get in Chapter One! Crazy intense...I know right! Now Bryleigh is Blake Martin and she is offically starting her life over at the age of Twenty Two.
Madden Decker is the CEO of Decker Enterprises and let me tell you that Erin Noelle describes him so good that my mouth was watering and I was ready to jump on a plane to California and find him my damn self! This man is all business, contracts, paperwork, and well sex with women. He has had his heart broken and he is in no rush to go through that s*** again. So he will not allow anyone to get that close to him.
Madden meets Blake Martin in a meeting about his company and what new venture that him and his brother's company is taking. Blake works for JDT Graphics and is ready and willing to take on this project with her partner. Naturally Madden is attracted to Blake but I mean who wouldn't she is gorgeous. Once they start to spend more time together going over the details for the new project, Madden can't stop feeling a curtain way. There is something there and he needs to save and protect her and he won't stop till she lets him.
While reading this book I was a ball of emotions. Everytime Blake has a flashback from any and every trigger my heart broke for her and I wanted to be with there with Madden saving her from herself. This book is intense, crazy, sad, heart-breaking, and emotional. Then when you get to the last chapter and you have this big ass smile on your face Erin Noelle comes in and steals it right off you! With two words written in black THE END!!
Yes... lets just say I was panicing because well I need to know what in the hell just happen...and how did they....and when...and how long where they watching! Yeah, like I said pretty freaking intense!
I can't wait for book 2 to come out.....because I am really needing to read it!
