Marked by Rebecca Sherwin


I couldn’t live without pain.

I’d been born into a life of torture and I walked the lonely road of torment, praying for mercy. I was scarred mentally. I was deformed physically. I was mutilated emotionally.

I was a sailor lost at sea, a soul lost in limbo, a shell of a man with no hope.

Until I found her. My fiery-haired, crystal-eyed little one who brought light to a life that knew nothing but darkness.

But she had dark shadows of her own. A past filled with anguish and brutality. A future that promised nothing but the barren life I understood too well.

We were two victims. Two loveless souls searching for something to live for. We were monsters. We were evil. We were doomed.

Our scars ran deep and our grasp on each other depended only on the search for punishment – for the next slice of pain that made us feel alive. We lived for the hurt, we lived for the anger. We lived to mark each other with intensity, belonging, and our own messed up version of recovery.

This isn’t a love story. It’s a story that cuts. It’s a story that captivates. It’s a story that questions morals and crosses the line of sanity.

It’s a twisted story, one you won’t see coming until it’s too late…

Official Review!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

When you take a trip with Rebecca Sherwin into the mind of the dark and twisted characters in her stories, you never know where you will end up. You just know that the journey will be grueling, mind boggling, and that you will not be the same as you were at the beginning. Her books are erotic, psychological, genius, and terrifying. Rebecca never fails to illicit a response whether one of horror, awe, or shock which is my definition of an amazing author.

In Marked we enter the mind of Benton Wright also known as “Benny” or “The Hunter”. We get to see first hand his disturbing, abusive world and experience his actions and thoughts throughout his life. Everything from the pain he has endured, his lows and his twisted euphoric highs with his fiery haired partner. If you are looking for a sweet, flowery, and romantic love story then Marked is not for you, but if you are willing to dig deep, Rebecca knows how to tell a story like none other. Will I ever read this story again? More than likely not because every lash of abuse, cut with the knife, arousing lick, and shattering climax are firmly embedded into my brain to relive without rereading the words. It had that much impact!

Rebecca’s character development is so thorough that you leave the story full of empathy, hatred, and love for the evil, weak, sick, and strong characters that have seduced, beguiled, and repulsed you. Benny’s story will open your eyes to the evil lurking everywhere and bring home the fact that nothing is black and white but varying shades of grey stained red. Life is most assuredly not a fairy tale but a string of occurring events that shape and mold us into a person we are today full of unique fears, desires and drives. We can choose to step into the light or go with the darkness.

I could tell you all about what makes “The Hunter” who he is or I can extend to you a personal invitation to enter Rebecca’s penned world and experience Benny for yourself. It will be a story full of pain, hate, and disturbing passion and will have you riveted from beginning to end. I highly recommend for those looking for a story without rainbows, kittens, and sunshine but instead raw, dark, and grit.

“Relax,” she said with a smile. “I won’t hurt you.”

I trusted her. It was an alien feeling to me, and one I hadn’t felt since I met Freddy.


I nodded, laid my head back and squeezed my eyes shut.

“You know,” Faith said as the first prick touched my skin and I flinched, my body tensing. “There are many meanings behind the significance of the swallow.”

I hummed, signalling for her to go further, lost in the sensation of her hand on my stomach and the needle pricking my skin. She was right – you can’t count the number of times the needle pierces. It didn’t hurt; I’d felt enough pain to know what it really felt like, but this wasn’t pain. It was uncomfortable pleasure. It was pleasurable discomfort.

“Traditionally it’s chosen by sailors. It symbolises the miles of ocean they’ve travelled.” Her voice was soft and comforting, allowing me to drift away from constant defence, like a sailor who had stopped rowing to feel the ebb and flow of the sea beneath him. “And some say it means ‘these fists fly’. Fighting talk, from boxers back in the day.” I slipped into the lull created by Faith and her soft touch, the way she made branding my skin forever feel as natural as breathing. “They’re usually inked in a pair on the chest, and the sailors believed that if they were lost at sea, the swallows would carry their souls to find peace.”

That was exactly how I felt on the leather bed, exposed and open without saying a word. I felt like I’d taken a slice of peace to calm my lost soul.
