I'm a user and abuser of my own body. In the darkest hour I sold my soul to the devil and now I must pay the price. With his gun to my head I have no choice but to listen and obey, but I refuse to go down easily. Nothing is stronger than the will to survive. My instincts kicked into full gear the second he stepped into my motel room.

What did you love best about Mr. X?

A very dark Hero who goes to any lengths to get his targets.

What did you like best about this story?

Even though you doubt you'll ever understand him and his reasoning, when you realize just how twisted and deep this is SMH it's mindblowing.

Which scene was your favorite?

The epilogue <3

Any additional comments?

Jay finds herself in the middle of danger when what she thought was a simple handjob turns into a murderer kicking in her door. Facing her own death makes her want to live, at any cost.
Is she ready for what mr X is bringing, though?
Twists and surprises, smut and suspense in a (very) dark romance with an ever darker Hero.
Listened to the audio version, in this re-read, and the narrator was great and brought another dimension to the story. Loved it!

What was supposed to be a relaxing afternoon at the mall with her boy after a stressful morning, turned out to be a nightmare when terrorists attack.
Murder and mayhem, and in the middle of it all Vivi gets help from an off duty FBI agent.
Jed was supposed to be on leave when he finds himself in the middle of a fight for his life. Trying to save as many as he can, he connects with a young boy.
When the threat against Vivi and Michael's life doesn't end at the mall, Jed steps up as protector, no matter what costs to his profession.
Contemporary romance, action, suspense and smutty fluff in a great combo. Love this series, it will keep you on the edge of your seat waiting for what'll happen next =)

Anna and David finds themselves thrown through time, back to 1282 and Wales.
Saving Llywelyn ap Gruffyd from murder, they change history in more than one way, but danger still lurks. Can two teenagers really make a difference?
Fantasy, Historical Romance and a "what if" take on actual historical events that had me listening with bated breath. Can't wait to continue this series!

In a world where Vampires are either slaves to human, or hunted as animals, Nicole is the heir to the Martin global company, a company founded on research and exploitment of Vampires. When she's kidnapped by her enemies, everything gets turned upside down. Her childhood nightmare is one of the kidnappers, and they're out for blood, in more than one way.
Riker's mate was caught and turned into slave, and in the end murdered by the Martin family and their ways, so when he has to grab Nicole as a way to save his clan, he doesn't hesitate. But what started as something clear cut, soon turns into so much more.
Action, Vampires, smutty fluff and suspense in a great combo, a great listen and can't wait to start #2, I need to know more about Hunter and Aylin!

Any additional comments?

Mallory's making a career within the FBI, trying to clear up what happened to her twin-sister when she was abducted, when she's transfered to the BAU team as part of a new investigation with a serial killer.
What she didn't expect was Alex Parker.
Alex a former CIA agent, now part of a government organization that claims revenge when the system can't. He was saved from a moroccan prison in exchange for time within the Gateway Project. He's got no time for feelings, or what Mallory awakens within him.
When the current investigation tangles them up in more than one way, they're about to find out if they've got a chance together.
Suspense, action, mystery and smutty fluff in an awesome combo!
Listened to the audiobook, and the narrator Eric G. Dove was great as well.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Master to be better than the print version?

no, I'd say equal

What did you like best about this story?

The pace, the smut and the players

Which character – as performed by Kimberly Alexis – was your favorite?

A tie between Cat & Maksim

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both

Any additional comments?

Cat is hiding from her abusive ex, still husband, when she finds herself in a bind. She needs to move on, but lacking funds, there's just one solution to get the money quick, to take the place of her friend/employer as the escort.
One night of this would give her enough money to disappear to another town, it should be worth it, shouldn't it?
Maksimiliam is used to buying an hour here and there whenever the urge sets in, what he didn't expect was how he's react to the fiery latina standing by his door, when he usually only desires blond europeans..
Smutty fluff, romance and emotions in an awesome combo.
Listened as audiobook, and it was eleven hours nonstop, I did not want this to end =) Can't wait for the next book and hopefully the third brother Sevastyan.
