CL Mustafic is a born and bred American mid westerner who mysteriously ended up living in a tiny Eastern European country Left with too much time on her hands let s be honest here it was the lack of television channels in her native language and too many voices in her head trying to fill the silence, she decided to give her life long dream of writing a novel a shot So now between shuttling kids back and forth from various activities, risking her life on the insanely narrow, busy streets of her new home town, she loses herself in her own made up world where love always wins.

    4.5 Stars You know when you pick a book and think let s give it a go with your most tired and condescending sigh, as a result of many attempts of finding a good dark read Oh well, that was me We have a saying in Portuguese for what happened here Ela saiu com o rabo entre as pernas Which means something like feeling ashamed and humiliated Shame on me Backdoor Politics is my first read by this author and I am truly impressed by his ability to keep this real.A brilliant, wicked, min 4.5 Stars You know when you pick a book and think let s give it a go with your most tired and condescending sigh, as a result of many attempts of finding a good dark read Oh well, that was me We have a saying in Portuguese for what happened here Ela saiu com o rabo entre as pernas Which means something like feeling ashamed and humiliated Shame on me Backdoor Politics is my first read by this author and I am truly impressed by his ability to keep this real.A brilliant, wicked, mindfucking read It was dark, gritty, intense and most importantly, believable.Besides, it was so immoral and sinfully obscene Filthy, people, with a BIG age gap.This is not a romance Kamal is no hero In fact, he is bad, very bad and insane.We get to watch a sick but extremely compelling dynamic between a captive and his captor to unfold Later, that will lead and develop into a bizarre relationship but who am I to judge They are happy and so am I Yep Sometimes.There was a moment when I thought why the hell this is happening this king of sexual torture it doesn t make sense and my answer came at 75% It was the moment I had to bow to the author s Machiavellian imagination, because let me tell you, when everything started to be unraveled, I realized that the whole plot was masterfully doneOh, he loved the first moment of penetration The feeling of being possessed left him breathless with its meaning He may not ever know what it felt like to be loved, but he was owned, which he was sure in those moments felt just as good

    I love a novel that completely wraps me up and then lingers so I can t get it out of my mind With a dark and disturbing story line and characters who could be your next door neighbors, C.L Mustafic s Backdoor Politics is spine tinglingly perfect This one s a must read for any fan of dark erotica Backdoor Politics has an incredible plot which unfolds gradually and is structured to build our anticipation There were so many ways the story could go that I truly had no idea what would happen next I love a novel that completely wraps me up and then lingers so I can t get it out of my mind With a dark and disturbing story line and characters who could be your next door neighbors, C.L Mustafic s Backdoor Politics is spine tinglingly perfect This one s a must read for any fan of dark erotica Backdoor Politics has an incredible plot which unfolds gradually and is structured to build our anticipation There were so many ways the story could go that I truly had no idea what would happen next or how it would end The suspense is wonderful.When the contract to capture and torture his ex lover s twenty two year old son falls into his lap, Kamal doesn t debate what he ll do for a moment This is his story, and C.L Mustafic brings us inside the mind of one of the most deliciously monstrous characters I can imagine.While the traumatic experiences of his life have influenced him, deep down in his core Kamal is still human Yes he has suffered incredible physical and mental trauma, but that s just the stuff that happened to him Kamal doesn t see anything wrong or odd about his actions.This is truly my favorite character in literature, the dark protagonist who makes no excuses and doesn t seem to second guess himself In the depths of his own mind Kamal weighs his choices and ponders his decisions, but he accepts the status quo.As he calmly washes his face and brushes his teeth the morning he begins the torture, Kamal contemplates having his ex lover s son in this position Torn between fond memories of the boy s father and the depth of his betrayal Kamal considers this to be, Either the greatest or worst thing he d had happen to him Kamal s ambivalence is chilling and Mustafic doesn t miss a chance to show us the depths of his crazy.As the flashback scenes gradually explain the relationships between the characters, Mustafic really gets into Kamal s mind She delves deeply into his thought process and shows how close to the surface his emotions are It was disturbing for me to see how normal he could seem Backdoor Politics is a dark and frightening tale and C.L Mustafic doesn t pull any punches, either with the characters or the plot The pacing is perfect, wrapping me up in Kamal s sadistic mind and building the suspense to the highest level I m going to warn you the descriptions of the torture Kamal inflicts are grisly but if you are a fan of dark erotica, then you ll enjoy this as much as I did

    4,5 starsQuite VERY DARK But it was better than I expected It was extremely well written AND surprised me big time Loved it It kept me on the edge I ve read it in one sitting Lately that doesn t happen much But this one was that good It was really hard to read some parts, some scenes are horrific, but I just needed a good ending And I think I got it The author kept Kamal s cold blooded attitude until the end But I hate it when a character changes overnight.One thing bothered me Ka 4,5 starsQuite VERY DARK But it was better than I expected It was extremely well written AND surprised me big time Loved it It kept me on the edge I ve read it in one sitting Lately that doesn t happen much But this one was that good It was really hard to read some parts, some scenes are horrific, but I just needed a good ending And I think I got it The author kept Kamal s cold blooded attitude until the end But I hate it when a character changes overnight.One thing bothered me Kamal used too many Serbian words Sometimes full sentences At least I think it was Serbian But without any translation it just left me wondering what he meant

    4.5 Stars rounded up Pfft Fuck Okay. Well there s this book I just finished I feel like I ve just been released from something so utterly jarring and frightening It hit some major hard limits for me onthan one occasion I ll gather my thoughts and review it properly shortly, but when I look at my Kindle notes I keep seeing the words dysfunction or dysfunctional throughout Backdoor Politics is nothing if not methodical and calculated and very, very fucked up which equals Kamal 4.5 Stars rounded up Pfft Fuck Okay. Well there s this book I just finished I feel like I ve just been released from something so utterly jarring and frightening It hit some major hard limits for me onthan one occasion I ll gather my thoughts and review it properly shortly, but when I look at my Kindle notes I keep seeing the words dysfunction or dysfunctional throughout Backdoor Politics is nothing if not methodical and calculated and very, very fucked up which equals Kamal Power and politics mesh with someone so broken, so psychopathic, to get what it wants Kamal helps those that areadept with the veneer they show to polite society and have the money to pay for dirty deeds Dirty people with money paying to remove whoever gets in their way It doesn t matter who that someone is And there are always innocents that pay the price Sometimes a job is done not because of money but because of a brutal past that completely broke you but won t let you forget, that tricks you into feeling something that is complex view spoiler Especially blue, blue eyes of one man that call you to his son That son could have been your son once Just onelayer hide spoiler There is a deeply twisted relationship at the very core of this book Kamal and Zijad It s hard to explain but I ll give it a go on the blog later Do not go into this book thinking It s a bit of rough BDSM or kink It s an assassin romance book Do not even think love It is a relationship, and it takes all types, but it s nowhere in the ballpark of love Think well think dysfunction And death and kidnapping and humiliation and rape Just so I m clear on how I feel it is a well written and atmospheric book, full of tension and suspense and psychological terror You certainly experience every moment of the book It is ballsy While not the same, I d say this book would be in the wheelhouse of readers who like books like Better the Devil You Know but this is a longer reading experience and The Flesh Cartel 1 Capture series Maybe Fog A Novel of Desire and Retribution Just know there are a few powerful and need to be heeded trigger warnings I ll list them on the review on the blog, but I m certain ForbiddenFiction have their own tags and warnings

    Wow, this is a difficult review to write This is one dark, violent story Which, of course, lured me right in This story takes place in or around Bosnia, much of the background going back to a time when the country was in war torn turmoil Kamal grew up during that time, barely surviving, and that s before he is betrayed in the worst way by his lover and best friend Orhan Now, he is a highly paid, successful deadly mercenary.When his MAWB Mercenary Acquaintance With Benefits calls for a h Wow, this is a difficult review to write This is one dark, violent story Which, of course, lured me right in This story takes place in or around Bosnia, much of the background going back to a time when the country was in war torn turmoil Kamal grew up during that time, barely surviving, and that s before he is betrayed in the worst way by his lover and best friend Orhan Now, he is a highly paid, successful deadly mercenary.When his MAWB Mercenary Acquaintance With Benefits calls for a hookup, he learns of the job to acquire, torture and who knows what else to Orhan s son, Zijad, a boy Kamal once thought of as his own There is a lot of backstory to Kamal s and Orhan relationship with Orhan, but he simply cannot allow someone else to handle this task He doesn t hesitate to change the playing field and take the job over himself.Once he has Zijad, he doesn t have a come to Jesus moment and suddenly care about the boy No, he carries on with the explicitly detailed orders of torture even instituting a few of his own But, you can see his resolve crumbling just a little bit as his interactions with Zijad take place and Zijad s reactions are not quite what Kamal was expecting.There are a lot of twists and turns outside of the actual kidnapping The whos and whys behind what this was supposed to accomplish come to light, and all is not what it seemed initially In the end, Kamal is left having to re establish his position as mercenary to show he is the one holding the cards One thing he becomes certain of is that he wants what belongs to him, and that is now Zijad With little love lost between father and son, Zijad makes a choice opting for a life where he is wanted, and cared for, even if not loved.One thing that I kept wishing for through this story was some translation of the foreign phrases dialog I enjoy how having the foreign words helps set the scene, but I also want to know what they are actually saying just as much But, as for the rest, while it was difficult to stomach at times, especially with the feeling that this couldn t end in anything but a major case of Stockholm Syndrome, I was turning pages quickly to get to the end of this engaging suspenseful story If you love a well written dark and sometimes violent story that will keep you on the edge of your seat, be sure to give this one a try I will definitely be on the lookout forfrom this author in the future Review written forLove Bytes Reviews.
