Oh, this is going to be difficult describing this book, because there are so many characters to keep straight, and so many twists and turns, that sometimes it was downright confusing! But if you can hang in there for about the first 100 pages, things start to make sense, everything falls into place and things get rolling, and by then this book was un-put-downable!

This is a story about disfunctional families, betrayal, guilt, and regrets. It seems that every character in this story had regrets or

When I started Scream for me by Karen Rose, I didn’t know I was in for a nerve-racking, nail-biting read from start to finish. The fast paced storyline and interesting dialog kept me on the edge of my seat. I read through this book quickly without being able to put it down for long intervals of time, so I neglected things like walking the dog and much needed sleep…but it was well worth it because I HAD to see how it ended!

First off...great book. Loved it. Secondly...damnit it! I don't want to wait almost a year for the continuation of the series!

Once I started reading Scream For Me I couldn't put it down. From the first page I was hooked on the story. It doesn't have the pulse-pounding, dark intensity and creepiness that Die For Me had, but the storyline is very engaging. I spent the whole book sorting through the details, trying to put the pieces together and figure out who did what and when and why. Rose kept m
The eighth addition to Karen Rose's Romantic Suspense series and the second in the Daniel Vartanian series. Thirteen years ago Alex Fallon's twin sister was murdered and now an eerily similar murder has taken place. Special Agent Daniel Vartanian of the GBI (Georgia Bureau of Investigation) is back in his hometown of Dutton, Georgia, trying to solve the case but more bodies are stacking up. He is finding evidence that his dead brother Simon was involved.

Wow! I have said it before and I say it a
Scream For Me was another great book by Karen Rose. There was plenty of suspense along with a satisfying romance. The suspense portion of the novel was complicated and involved more than one villain. I didn't feel that this novel was quite as graphic as some others by Rose, but it was just as intense. I enjoyed the characters and the storyline, and I am anxiously awaiting the release of the next book in the series.

This book was amazing to me. These are not the type of book's I usually read as a matter of fact they are the total opposite. I find myself drawn into the complicated stories. There are twists and turns that keep you wanting to know what is gonna happen next. Really Bad bad guy's and really Good good guy's. If you don't like violence in your story's then these book's are not for you.The feeling I got just now when I finished this book was WOW! I thought Die For Me was fantastic but Scream For Me ...more
Daniel Vartanian has been unable to sleep for the past eleven years, ever since he found gruesome pictures in his brother Simon’s possession. Pictures his own father, a judge, burned after Simon’s death so they couldn’t affect his career. Pictures that resurfaces along with a very alive, and seriously bent on revenge, Simon a couple of weeks ago. Pictures now in Daniel’s possession after his brother’s death (yeah, he really is dead this time).

5 stars – Romantic Suspense

Scream For Me is another phenomenal read from the master of intense, chilling romantic suspense and creepy, sadistic villains, Karen Rose. This is the 8th book in her loosely connected series and the second part of a sub trilogy that began with Die For Me and continues with Kill For Me.

I highly recommend this, and all of her books for that matter, when you’re in the mood for a goosebumps inducing read that will also stir your emotions! Big 5 stars!
Disappointed. This is book #2 in what looks like a trilogy though the author doesn't have them set up that way on her website. You should read "Die for Me" first because the crimes overlap, characters come from there, and the villains in this one were all connected to Simon (villain from Die for Me). The way this one ended, tells me that the next will connect even further and will be about Savannah and Luke only going more into child porn/rape.

This book didn’t work for me. For me, it was hard to follow and there was too much going on at any one point. There are two alternate plots, one of town leaders involved in a clandestine operation and another of a serial murderer copy cat at bay, and they didn’t seem to mesh adequately with each other. Although she does a good job with the romantic interests in the story, many of the main characters are so stunningly reprobate that they start to seem like caricatures. Think the book suffers from ...more

I read this book following "Scream for me": I didn't like the first very much, and I liked this even less, pretty much for the same reasons:

-the characters are so unreal: the baddies are so bad and the goodies are so good that is just not right; I think the author has some personal issues that reflect in her books, because in both of them, the main male characters (policemen) are hot, sweet, considerate... just perfect!, and same with the main female: beautiful, smart... everybody likes them!...

This was book 2 in a series with Agent Daniel Vartanian, but it read well as a stand alone. The first book, Die For Me, I have on reserve at our library, so that should tell you that I really enjoyed this book!

Daniel Vartanian is a Special Agent with the GBI, Georgia Bureau of Investigation. He has just returned from a case which involved his parents and his brother (I have a sneaky suspicion that this is what Die For Me is about...) He isn't even home a day before a murdered girl is discovered
If you’re interested in dysfunctional families then this is the romantic mystery for you. Alex Tremaine’s identical twin sister was found murdered several years ago and the crime remains an unsolved mystery. At the time of the murder, Alicia mother Kathy was so distraught over the death of her daughter that she committed suicide, apparently in front of daughter Alex. Alex was so traumatized by that experience that she attempted suicide as well but was unsuccessful and although suffering with amn ...more
I enjoyed the romance side of this romantic suspense book, despite the fact that it came on very suddenly, but the suspense side was way too complicated for me. There seemed to be about 14 different villains supporting 5 separate evil plots. I couldn’t keep track of who was doing what, and at the end there was a big villain reveal that fell completely flat, because I had no idea who the character was in the story.

On the plus side, it was less graphically gruesome than Rose usually is, and always

Special Agent Daniel Vartanian who you met in Die for me is searching for a killer copying a 13 year old murder. His search is going to bring him colliding with Alex Fallon who he falls for hard and they must both face their fears and past to catch the killer.

you will absolutely love this book. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.

Book 8 in this unnamed series.
Still going strong on the suspense and romance. At this point the romantic parts are easily predictable, but still enjoyable to read and watch unfold. The suspense parts are fresh and with many twists and turns. I thought there was going to be too much going on part way through this book, but it was written very well. It didn't feel like overload and kept me guessing.
Still loving this series. I feel like it gets better and better so far. Even though it does jump a

The second book of this storyline held my interest from the first page. I really enjoyed reading more about Daniel and the secrets from his past. The pace didn't let up, and I found this book one I couldn't put down. Am going to go and start the next book. Being a Karen Rose, I know I am going to enjoy it.
Der zweite Teil kehrt zurück nach Dutton, dem Heimatstädtchen von Daniel Vartanian. Die Leiche eines jungen Mädchen wird gefunden - das Gesicht bis zur Unkenntlichkeit zertrümmert, vergewaltigt und an einem öffentlichen Ort abgelegt, der nackte Körper mit nicht mehr bedeckt wie mit einer alten Decke. Es ist der erste Fall von Agent Daniel Vartanian, der nach den Ereignissen um die Foltermorder wieder in den Dienst zurückgekehrt ist.

This book falls into the genre of “romantic suspense.” It was interesting to realize that if you excised all the scenes involving "romantic" encounters between "ruggedly handsome" Daniel Vartanian and "beautiful, full-lipped" Alexandra “Alex” Fallon, you’d still have a pretty good suspense novel AND not really notice the difference.

Daniel Vartanian (of ruggedly handsome fame) is a Special Agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, called in to help with a brutal murder in Arcadia, Georgia

Setelah lama menunggu buku pengarang yang satu ini, akhirnya penantianku terbayarkan. Cerita tentang Alex Fallon dan Daniel Vartanian sangat menyentuh. Yuk kita sama-sama Daniel memecahkan kasus pembunuhan berantai di Georgia,,,, ato lebih tepatnya Dutton.

Another fast-paced read with a good balance of romance and suspense. Rose is about the only RS author on my radar that gives me the balance I like. Her romance is strong but the suspense/mystery is stronger yet the former is never overwhelmed.

Daniel is sexy without being over-the-top gorgeous - though I admit to a partiality for the latter - and is protective of Alex yet is never patronizing or smothering. He's quick to acknowledge any effort on her part to get a grip on herself in the midst of

Scream For Me is a sequel to Die for Me where we were introduced to the Vartanian family. Simon, the murderer caught in the previous book, is now dead and his brother Daniel returns to the small town where they grew up. Also back in town is Alex Fallon, she left town when she was still a girl after her twin sister was murdered and her mother committed suicide and she now returns to look for her cousin who has gone missing.

As usual Rose's books are an interesting mix of suspense and romance, she

First of all: Yay, I finally picked a good book again. Then again, it's Karen Rose so you can't do wrong. ;)

Thing is, I highly enjoyed reading the second installment in the Daniel Vartanian trilogy. Though I have to say I had some difficulties to get into the book at first. I dunno know why exactly. Maybe because I read book 1 a few months ago and I have to say: Not such a good idea. It seems like this trilogy is highly complicated, with lot of characters and a difficult overall plot. Y

This review is from: Scream for Me (Hardcover)

The plot was o.k. but the story went on far too long and was extremely convoluted and involved way too many characters. Also way too many deaths. As the body count ratcheted up, I was left with wondering exactly what the motivation was for Mack to be doing this and it really wasn't ever fully explained. All the players were eliminated and I really don't see how this story line wit
Absolutamente fenomenal.
Esta autora encontra enredos e personagens que me deixam .

Então aqueleS assassinoS e criminosoS frios e a destilar maldades por todos os cantos da cidade, deixaram-me enervada muitas vezes por estarem sempre 3 ou 4 passos á frente do Daniel Vartanian.

E quando Daniel suspeita que afinal a gémea torturada foi (view spoiler) aí é que eu entrei em stress e não queria largar as páginas que estava a ler.

Scream for Me wasn't as interesting to me as Karen Rose's earlier books. I don't know if it's just me catching on or there has been a change in the books, but it seems like these characters especially got together really fast. It seemed they had just met and she's leaning on his shoulder, he's rubbing her back, they kiss in the moonlight. It kind of creeps me out. Now, given, the romance has to move fast because unlike most books, Karen Rose's books encompass a few days versus months or even yea ...more

A week after burying his parents and taking down a serial killer, GBI Agent Daniel Vartanian is back on the job in Georgia. The body of a young woman is found in a ditch. She has been raped and beaten, then wrapped in a blanket. While trying to identify the victim, Daniel learns that this murder is strikingly similar to the murder 13 years ago of Alicia Tremaine. He is also shocked to discover that Alicia's photograph is one of the many pictures in the collection owned by the serial killer he ju ...more
I have recently discovered Karen Rose and I must say, I am a fan. For the most part. I've read her books in order so far and I don't know if anyone else finds this but the "love plots" all seems very similiar. I find myself more often then not skipping over the sex scenes to get to the good thriller stuff.

Overall, this book kept my attention and had a fairly disturbing storyline. I just found the plot hard to follow and that will drive me insane when I'm reading a book. I found it hard to tie in

Karen Rose is the author of numerous romantic suspense books.

Though most of the books can be read as stand-alones, all of her books (except the Hot Pursuit anthology) take place in the same "universe" and have many connected characters. Some of the books are more connected than others.
