I don't really read erotica, but if you're looking for some really dark, depressing, twisted stuff:
  • An Untamed State by Roxane Gay
  • Pet Sematary by Stephen King (or anything else by Stephen King, really)
  • World War Z by Max Brooks
  • Go Ask Alice
  • Room by Emma Donoghue
  • A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah
  • Beloved by Toni Morrison
  • A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer (the first in a trilogy)

Some I have yet to read, but sound like they might fit your description:
  • War Child: A Child Soldier's Story by Emmanuel Jal
  • Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman
  • A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard
  • Sold by Patricia McCormick
  • Dandelion on My Pillow, Butcher Knife Beneath: The true story of an amazing family that lived with and loved kids who killed by Beth Thomas
  • American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis
  • Misery by Stephen King (again, probably anything by Stephen King)

I don't read much in that genre, so some of these are a bit of a stretch. But let me know if you want any more information or anything like that.
