    Sarai was only fourteen when her mother uprooted her to live in Mexico with a notorious drug lord. Over time she forgot what it was like to live a normal life, but she never let go of her hope to escape the compound where she has been held for the past nine years. Victor is a cold-blooded assassin who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape.

    Nora Sutherlin is in handcuffs, held captive by two men. Under different circumstances, she would enjoy the situation immensely, but her captors aren't interested in play. As the reality of her impending peril unfolds, Nora becomes Scheherazade, buying each hour of her life with stories - sensual tales. This, Nora realizes, is her life: nothing so simple, so vanilla, as a mere love triangle for her. It's a knot in a silken cord, a tangled mass of longings of the body and the heart and the mind. And it may unravel at any moment.

    This book would have been 5 stars except it moved way too fast and was too short. The beginning needed to be developed more. I like to get to know the characters first, which is why I don't like movies.

    Determined to live a dark life in the company of the assassin who freed her from bondage, Sarai sets out on her own to settle a score with an evil sadist. Unskilled and untrained in the art of killing, the events that unfold leave her hanging precariously on the edge of death when nothing goes as planned. Sarai's reckless choices send her on a path she knows she can never turn back from and so she presents Victor with an ultimatum: Help her become more like him and give her a fighting chance, or she'll do it alone no matter the consequences.

    HEAD HOPPING galore!! So much it made me DiZzY and CoNfUsEd. You never knew who's head you were in. It wasn't just between the two main characters but minor characters as well. It made this book unenjoyable to listen to. Isn't that one of the basic, fundamental rules of writing a novel? The story was okay, nothing new.

    Not bad for a PNR. The one thing that bothered me was these are supposed to be rough and tumble dragons in the middle of a war but the two main male characters referred to each other as "his best friend" about a million times. It doesn't fit.

    Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different - more serious, more personal - and she's sure it'll be her breakout book…if it ever sees the light of day. Zachary Easton holds Nora's fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: He wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards - in six weeks - or it's no deal. Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing.

    I couldn't get past the narrator so I downloaded it he book from the library. I thought the book was bazaar and waaaay out there there but I continued with reading the series and absolutely LOVE it! This has to be one of my favorite series of all time! I still think book 2 and 3 are much better than The Siren.

    Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this. Evelyn Thomas' plans for celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

    The premise of this book was ridiculous, cheesy and cliché. Girls goes to Vegas, gets drunk, meets a guy, gets married and has absolutely no recollection of it in the morning. Not to mention the guy is a rich and famous rock star. Yeah right. It bothered me for several chapters but then I got into the story, forgot the absurdity and liked the book. It worked and was very enjoyable.

    Former small-town girl Amery Hardwick is living her dream as a graphic designer in Denver, Colorado. She's focused on building her business, which leaves little time for dating - not that she needs a romantic entanglement to fulfill her. When her friend signs up for a self-defense class as part of her recovery after an attack, Amery joins her for support. That's where she meets him. Ronin Black, owner of the dojo, is so drawn to Amery that he takes over her training - in public and in private. The enigmatic Ronin pushes Amery's boundaries from the start, and with each new tryst, Amery becomes addicted to the pleasure and to him.

    Danika hasn't had an easy life. Being insanely attracted to bad boys has never helped make it easier. One look at Tristan, and every brain cell she possessed went up in smoke. This man was trouble with a capital T. It was a given. She knew better. Bad boys were bad. Especially for her. Considering her history, it was crazy to think otherwise.

    I can't believe how good this was! I especially loved the first half. There were only a couple chapters of Tristan's POV and it wasn't necessary. It kind of took away from the book. I didn't much like Mile High and the second book was a big DNF, so I was pleasantly surprised.

    I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of 10 thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.", and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing...except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters.

    This book was soooo dull and boring I barely got through it!! The concept was good. I wished and expected Kyrie's benefactor to be a little mean and wicked but no... He was a rich and gorgeous Prince Charming! There was no edge to the story at all - it was nothing but a soft and sweet fairy tale that was nothing but sex. The big "secret" was so obvious I instantly knew what it was from the very beginning, and by the time it was revealed I really didn't care.
