Virtual Book Review Tour & Giveaway: Redemption For The Hypnotist by Hypnotic Dreams

Hypnotic Dreams

A demonstration of erotic hypnosis leads to two relationships, one inspiring and creative, the other abusive and destructive. 
Darren Braid was a respected psychology professor until a student accused him of trying to hypnotize her into sexual slavery. The accusation was recanted, but the university dismissed him anyway. Feeling betrayed, Darren retreated into seclusion. But the FBI believes that his exceptional skill with hypnosis and his tainted personal history make him the perfect undercover agent to infiltrate a sex slavery ring. 
Latoya Douglas works for the studio that’s fronting the slavery ring. She is a beautiful black woman and one of L.A.’s hottest rap producers. Latoya will do almost anything to support her artists. She decides to 'manage' Darren, and remake him into an evil mind-controlling genius. She becomes his lover and muse. She inspires and helps Darren produce a hypnosis program to make women eager for sex with her rappers, and she helps find women to test the program. After three years of solitude, Darren finds the relationship more inspiring and rewarding than anything he imagined. But he doesn’t know if he can trust her. Is she part of the slavery ring, or trying to find her missing sister? 
Marisa Martinez is a hotheaded young FBI agent. She asks Darren to hypnotize her to act submissive and obedient so she can get close to the slavers. But the hypnotic programming works too well. Marisa is in danger of losing herself to the submissive role and becoming a mindless sex toy. Can Darren restore her mind before she’s actually sold into sexual slavery?

This story was a quick but interesting read. 
Professor Darren Braid is a hypnotist with the power to hypnotize women into being sexually aggressive, and wanting. He does this by having women listen to his tapes called Hypnotically Seduced. It doesn't hurt that he's a ex behavior modification specialist, and is now making his living by doing this. 
Enter Lamar Breaux, he is the owner of  Luv Bandit Muzik. Lamar wants to hire Darren and use him and his skills for something special he's involved in. The kind of man that he is, he won't take Darren on until he has a demonstration of what he proclaims he can do.

That's where Larisa, Jackie, and Latoya come in. They allow Darren to hypnotize them. They all do it for different reasons. Once hypnotized they all react and respond in different ways. The one thing they all have in common is unabashed uninhibited sexual freedom, and It could be their downfall.

This story really had me thinking, having read the book I know the reasons behind the decisions that were made. That being said I still don't think I could have let someone completely takeover my mind and turn me into a sex slave. The characters are strong, and I can understand some of their motivations.  It proves that it's human nature to dare anything for what you believe in .

The sex scenes were well written, and the story was intriguing  with enough mystery that I didn't put it down until I was finished. I liked the author's voice, and I would definitely read another book written by him.

If you like hot sex, mystery, and intrigue I would recommend you pick up Redemption For The Hypnotist.



Latoya filled both glasses and handed one to Darren, letting her fingers linger over his. "Music? Would you like R&B or Jazz?"

"No rock 'n roll?" he teased.

"Nope, sorry," she laughed as she swayed over to her stereo. 

Darren snapped his fingers, "Damn, nothing more romantic than Foreigner 4."

Latoya gave him a puzzled look and asked, "Urgent or Woman in Black?"

"Woman in Black, of course. But I'm surprised you know the album."

She started the music, a smooth jazz saxophone, and sauntered back towards him. "There are a lot of things you don't know about me." She stroked his face provocatively, rolled her body around, pressing her back against his chest and said, "I'm a very deep woman."

"And you'll go deeper," he chuckled.

Latoya paused briefly, her mind starting to slide into trance at the reference. But she recognized the sensation and shook it off.
She playfully slapped his cheek, "Naughty boy!" She pushed away, her butt pressing firmly against his loins. "Save that for later," strutting back to the kitchen area.

Darren followed her, enjoying the sight of her sensually swaying hips. She posed for him at the refrigerator; her stance highlighting her lovely figure. She opened the door and when she leaned in, she bent slowly at the hips, maintaining the sexy image. She straightened up holding a bag of baby carrots and a bunch of asparagus. "Just going to stand there gawking?" she playfully chided. "Or are you going to help a lady with the cooking?"

Darren backed up a little, unable to remember the last time he tried to prepare anything more fancy than a broiled steak. "I, ah, can't cook."

"You're kidding?"

Darren shrugged, "I live alone. I buy prepared meals or take-out."

"Every night? That's awful." She dumped the vegetables on the counter and pulled a large chopping knife from a drawer. "That's no way for anyone to live. Okay, wash your hands. Tonight you learn to cook."

Darren hesitated. She brandished the carving knife in his direction. "Tonight, lover," she said with a gleam in her eye," you learn to cook."

Darren set down the wine and threw up his hands. "Okay you got me. I never argue with a woman holding a sharp knife." Latoya set the knife down and laughed as he went to the sink.


Daniel will be awarding the winner's choice of one of Daniel's hypnotic audios--choices can be seen here--to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour


My name is Daniel, though I use the name Hypnotic Dreams as my 'brand' and my pseudonym. I hold a BS in Engineering and an MS in Technical Communication. I worked as a contract technical writer for 17 years, which gave me a broad range of experiences in several different industries.

 I began studying hypnosis in the 1990s and joined the online erotic hypnosis community in 1998. Redemption for the Hypnotist is my first full-length novel. I also have produced 19 hypnosis MP3s, which are available on my web site.


  1. Hi, Tawania. Thanks for the reviews and the compliments.

    I just want to correct you on one point. "Hypnotically Seduced" isn't the transformation mp3. Darren uses Hypnotically Seduced to get the women in a receptive frame of mind. Then he uses a second mp3 to make them want to obey.

    I have to make this distinction because Darren's mp3s are based on my own. I produced a hypnosis mp3 titled, "Hypnotically Seduced", It's light bondage fantasy that most women can enjoy. "Obedient Desire" is the mp3 that trains women to be obedient. But only women who are seriously interested dominance and submission should listen to this mp3.

  2. Thanks for the distinction.. I'm sure the readers will be grateful for it. Congratulations on a great book! I'm looking forward to reading more from you.

  3. I'm very glad to hear that because I am working on a sequel (Although it's going slowly.)


I love comments, so feel free to comment all you like :)
