REVIEW:
What a great prelude to the series!
While reading this hot love story, you, at times, feel its reminiscent of Fifty Shades of Grey. While still milder than it, it had hardcore sexual elements other than bondage and role-play.
It was hot! Yeah, I said that already. So it must have been steamy.
Travis and Sydney are a great couple and thankfully got together. Their chemistry is magic and it plays well in the story.
I love the mystery in the series too. It keeps a good pace with the love story.
Great writing from Maisey, and I am looking forward to reading Avenge Me.

#45: Avenge Me - Maisey Yates
TEN YEARS AGO ONE DEVASTATING NIGHT CHANGED EVERYTHING FOR AUSTIN, HUNTER AND ALEX. NOW THEY MUST EACH PLAY THEIR PART IN THE REVENGE AGAINST THE ONE MAN WHO RUINED IT ALL. 

Austin Treffen was born into a world of privilege, but behind its gilded doors lies a corruption so sordid New York's elite would never believe it—especially as his infamous philanthropic father is at its core! With everything he believed in shattered, how can Austin take down his father—risking his family name and those he loves—without any proof? 

Until one earth-shattering night with Katy Michaels unlocks not only their deepest, most passionate desires but also the key to bringing Jason Treffen's reign to an end. But with an intense sexual attraction that combines a heady mix of exquisite pleasure and sublime pain, will they satiate their thirst for revenge and each other…or lose themselves forever in the darkness?

Maisey Yates found her very first Harlequin Presents book in a local thrift store. By the time she’d reached the happily ever after, she had fallen in love. She devoured as many as she could get her hands on after that, and she knew that these were the books she wanted to write! At age twenty-three, she sold her first manuscript to the Harlequin Presents line. Maisey lives in Southern Oregon with her husband and three children.








REVIEW:
A continuation from the novella, Take Me, this one follows Katy and Austin. Now the mystery that started to unfold in the novella is what the story is based around. The mystery is why Katy's sister committed suicide. 
The mystery itself is exciting enough, but the steamy, dominating scenes in this story are what capture your attention. I mean how could they not?! I thought once again there were some hardcore sexual elements in this story too. Not for the shy, that's for sure. 
Still, I liked the ease of the story and the chemistry of the characters. It was well written and I look forward to more.

#46: Scandalize Me - Caitlin Crews
Hunter Talbot Grant III, sports figure du jour, wealthy beyond measure and disreputable by choice, has cultivated a reputation that masks the shadows of his past. When the opportunity to ensure financial destruction for Jason Treffen arises, he can't refuse. But first he must shake off the woman sent to tame him! 

Zoe Brook, PR agent extraordinaire, never fails to transform a tarnished star. And Hunter's no different. Except there's a catch. Beneath their scorching mutual attraction, Zoe has a secret—she's also been on the wrong side of Jason Treffen, and she has as much of a taste for revenge as Hunter does!

Caitlin Crews discovered her first romance novel at the age of twelve. It involved swashbuckling pirates, grand adventures, a heroine with rustling skirts and a mind of her own, and a seriously mouthwatering and masterful hero. Caitlin has made her home in places as far-flung as York, England, and Atlanta, Georgia. She currently lives in California with her animator/comic book artist husband and their menagerie of animals.








REVIEW:
This book, for me, was not as good as the last one or the novella. For the first over 100 pages, it was this sex-cat-and-mouse-game going on that was good in the beginning but became boring after so long. I was more interested in the story and characters that connected the others I had read. Was karma going to pay the old fart a visit? I had to know and expected this book to hold some answers. Luckily at some point it did, it just took too long to get there.
I'm glad Hunter isn't an asshole for the whole book. I also like that Zoe eventually pulls her head out of her ass. Again, but why did it take so long for both? Ergh!
Together, they both irritated the heck out of me. And yet, they are still somehow made for each other. Odd as that may seem.
I hope the last book is better. The ending was really all I enjoyed of this one.

2/5


#47: Expose Me - Kate Hewitt
With ruthless determination, Alex Diaz has risen up from his deprived roots to become the head of a global media empire. But he has one last thing to achieve…avenge his friend by destroying the man responsible for her death, Jason Treffen. With stunning talk-show host Chelsea Maxwell about to interview Treffen live on TV, this is Alex's chance. 

He'll use her show to exact a very public revenge—and seducing Chelsea, if needed, would certainly be no hardship. But he underestimates Chelsea and the attraction between them, and as their relationship deepens, Alex realizes that to annihilate Treffen could also shatter the life that Chelsea has built to protect herself.

Kate Hewitt discovered her first Harlequin romance novel on a trip to England when she was thirteen, and she’s continued to read them ever since. Kate moved to England with the man of her dreams and sold her first short story to a British magazine. Besides writing, she enjoys reading, traveling and learning to knit. After living in England for six years she now resides in Connecticut with her husband and her three young children.






REVIEW:
I am glad this book was better than the last one. I was worried the series was taking a dive. I was wrong. This book refocused on the story, so all the ties came into it and actually came together. The romance was almost a bonus, since I was so focused on wanting to know what happened with everyone and did things get resolved. This book really did wrap the series up nicely.
Alex Diaz is definitely the hottest hottie in the series for me! I think his character was who I would connect most to in real life, or at least be attracted to. Chelsea was like a broken bird in the beginning, but it was great to watch her mend.
All-in-all it was a decent series. Romance fans that appreciate a touch of suspense will dig this series most.
