They call me brutal. They call me unrepentant. They call me possessive. I am all these things and much worse.

But to her, I will be conqueror.

The Golden Line is a dark, sinister Omegaverse romance for those with twisted tastes and a love for delicious villains. Complete power exchange dominates these pages, as does an attentive Alpha hero you will adore.



The Golden Line (Knotted,#1)

The Golden Line by Addison Cain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Oh my friggen god I bloody adored The Golden Line (Knotted,#1) like so much.
Just when I think it can’t get any better than my previous Addison experience I get this little gem.
I don’t really want to share this; nope nope nope.
I want to keep the delectable delicious Simin and all his deep grumbly purrs all to myself; he’s not yours girls; This Adorable Alpha is all mine.


Okay okay, I suppose I’m being greedy trying to keep Simil all to myself I can share the love if I absolutely have to.
So this was really a tale of two halves for me; one of which I entered rather blindly.
I really was quite literally in the dark towards where this was ultimately heading.
Experiencing alongside Morgaine her frightful treatment at the hands of her Alpha tormentors.
I was there as they broke her with there unapologetic conditioning and as she hit rock bottom my heart hurt so much for this poor confused and traumatised girl.
Frantically looking around for someone to save her I was losing all hope.
That was why it was so special to see Simin take a step out of the stereotypical box and attempt with his whole entire being to rebuild Morgaine’s shattered psyche.
To come along and take this supposed feral omega for himself but also to actually see her as an individual and person in her own right was bewitching.
So this one for me; had as ever everything that I usually find captivating and hypnotic when it comes to this authors work.
All the usual magnetism you’d expect was still produced but this was alongside a much more softer overall approach when it came to her Alpha than we are usually given.
Don’t mistake me Simil is as Alpha as they come but he also came with the ability to place his omega at a much higher importance than his own needs and wants and it was magic.


Simin understood the best way to gain his omega Morgaine’s heart was ultimately through her trust; he had her lust but as his end game he wanted her soul also.
He was much more romantic than his predecessors and was not afraid to voice his feelings but rather than emasculating him it only enhanced his overall allure.


I also think taking away the ability to communicate through language and only through an interpreter brought a new layer to Alpha and Omega expectations.
Much more care was taken considerably on Simil’s part because of the lack of verbal cues.
It made it much more crucial to observe the non-verbal signs in each other.
So this had everything you would usually expect from this series but with such a difference in approaches than what we are usually used to.
I have to say, I’m equally a fan of both ways.
I also loved the finale here; where it left us, on edge and salivating at the mouth for that next anticipated instalment.
I feel like I am poised, waiting, breathe bated in expectation; the scene has been set with such finesse.
Addison Cains omegaverse universe is fast becoming one of my all-time favourite series I can’t get enough of it, whatever light the participants are portrayed in.
So before I go I should mention that this is an extended reworked story from the Royally Mine anthology that was originally titled Consumed.
That was a short story that is no longer available; “The Golden Line” is now a full-length novel and has been extensively improved on.
This is a series I can’t recommend highly enough and gets my whole-hearted seal of approval every single time.
Thank you to the author for providing me with an ARC of “The Golden Line (Knotted,#1)” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.
