First Thought:  Short, sexy, emotional ride. The Writing:  Siren Allen wrote a very entertaining romance within about 100 pages. She managed to put all the hmph into those pages what you would get out of a novel twice that length. She made me feel every emotion her characters was feeling. When they cried, I cried. When they laughed, I laughed. When they were lustful, I was lustful. The Characters:  Elizabeth is woman that is still dealing with an abusive past. Not only did her ex-boyfriend beat her but she was abused by her father, both emotionally and physically (no worries, there was no rape or incense in this book!) She has another problem. She’s in love with her best friend and comes up with an idea […]

Seriously, he is a controlling stalker and it got on my nerves in this book and made me hate Eva for putting up with it. But she starts putting her foot down about it and I was like FINALLY! Where we got to see how Eva handle Gideon’s ex last time we get to see how he […]
