Reviewing Pendulum by L.C. Davis.

Pendulum (Kingdom of Night #1) by L.C. Davis 3*

BLURB: Remus Black is still reeling from an abusive relationship that stripped him of everything -- including his desire for love. Now all he wants is a fresh start halfway across the country, but his new roommate is determined to draw him into his strange world of chains, half-naked men and the infamous Lodge, a BDSM club as lavish as it is secretive.

When Remus is entered into the Lodge's annual Alpha's Pet contest against his will, he finds himself thrown to the Wolf Pack, the very type of men he needs to avoid. What's worse is that the wolves immediately label him a submissive, something he swore he would never be again. Things get even stranger when "wolf" turns out to be far more literal than Remus ever imagined. When both the next-in-line for Alpha and his outcast brother claim Remus as their own, the entire pack is thrown into chaos.

Can Remus learn to embrace the power of submission and choose between the brothers before their rivalry tears the pack apart, or will the tension between them unravel his own sordid past?

My Review: I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. I was really enjoying this book and looking forward to finding out what Remus decides about the brothers. Did I get that? NO I got the dreaded cliffhanger instead. I HATE CLIFFHANGERS! I found that it left me depressed and irritated that I have to go and buy book 2 if I ever want to know the answer that I expected to have in this one.
Look I know sometimes a cliffhanger is unavoidable but at least you usually get a warning by the fact that you are running out of pages to read and are prepared for it. However this one had an epilogue, which to me means a round up and tying off of loose ends, not a completely new part of the story with absolutely no explanation as to where it fits into what I had already read. 
I won't bother to try and recommend it to anyone as I think this is one where each reader has to make up their own mind about reading it. Just be warned that there are numerous loose ends, and not one of them gets tied up in this book, so expect to need to buy the next one too.
