Eighteen year old Tatum O'Shea is a naive, shy, little rich girl. Twenty-three year old Jameson Kane is smart, seductive, and richer. They come together for one night, one explosion, one mistake, and Tate is hurled into space – no family, no money, and no Jameson.
Seven years later, life is going pretty good for Tate, when she runs into Jameson again. This time, she thinks she's ready for him. She doesn't have a naive bone left in her body, and she can't even remember what shy feels like. Jameson has evolved, as well – sharp words, sharper wit, and a tongue that can cut her in half. It all sounds like fun to a woman like Tate, and she is ready to play, determined to prove that she isn't the same girl he conquered once before. A series of games start, each one more devious than the last.
But as the line between games and reality becomes blurry, Tate quickly learns that Jameson has most definitely earned his nickname, “Satan”. Can she beat him at his own game before someone gets hurt? Or will he leave her soulless, making him the winner, once and for all?
WARNING: contains a wannabe B-rate porn star, an impersonal personal assistant, and the F-word, A LOT. Also graphic sexual situations and sadomasochistic themes.

Alright, I’ll keep this review short. Don’t hate me, I didn’t know this was a “dark” erotica romance. I think you should know by now this genre isn’t my cup of tea. So it’s really my fault that I didn’t like this book.
I am not a fan of cheater, and I don’t like reading books about one either (my unreasonable pet peeve), Tate slept with her sister’s boyfriend seven years ago, and the consequences were quite severe. She was disown and cut off from her parents financially (rather extreme, obviously something was very wrong with her family). She didn’t go to college (she was suppose to go to Harvard), she becomes a bartender and works on odd jobs. She also transfers from a goody-goody into a wild, sexual woman. Seven years later, Tate and Jameson met again, and this time they decide to play a dangerous game with each other.
I guess I will never understand how name calling would be consider as erotic and sexy. But that wasn’t the worst part of Degradation, there were slapping that sort of thing going on as well. And I just can’t get pass that.
It was obvious Jameson felt something for Tate, but he sure has a funny way to show it. We don’t really know why he is the way he is. But since this was the first book of the series, we probably will learn more in the next book. Tate was a masochist, and enjoy playing with fire (not literally of course). So you can imagine how out of control when Jameson and Tate are together.
The most part of this book was about Tate and Jameson’s sex life. Then the story took a turn when Jameson tricked Tate to go back to her home, where she wasn’t welcome. Their relationship became even more complicated. Tate realized she felt something serious for Jameson, and one night she finally confessed her feeling to him. Jameson then decided he was leaving, and asked Tate to wait for him. One month later, Jameson returned with a vengeance and a new game to play with Tate, only Tate was unaware of the situation.
The last chapter was quite depressing, and there was a cliffhanger in the end (@#$%).
I don’t think this book is for everyone, but to each of its own, for those who enjoy dark erotica romance genre this book may be for you.
