Night Owl is an erotic novel with a lot of sweet, angst, steamy, complex and even some creep moments. I was a little bit skeptical about this one, because there are already a lot of “dominant-alpha male-billionaires” books out there but nothing really different from “the fifty shades of grey formula”. I feel like I’ve been reading the same story but with different character names for a long time and this thing just got old. So I wasn’t expecting a lot about this one. But I was surprised. This novel is a bit different, with it’s own feel you know?! Sure, the dominant-alpha male, billionaire was there, but there was more to him and the story than that.
Night Owl is about Hannah and Matt. They met online and are writing a book together. But since the beginning Matt established some rules about this partnership: no private info, not even pictures or real names exchange. They only know each other as Nigh Owl (Matt) and Little Bird (Hannah). That’s because he has a girlfriend and only wants to write a book and not meet people. He doesn’t need to know about Hannah’s life, he just needs her to keep writing this book with him. But one day, she sent him a chapter in her personal gmail account and in there was her real name and her picture. Matt was furious because he thought she was imposing all of that info on him but he was also fascinated with Hannah’s picture, he thought she was beautiful, he just couldn’t take her out of his mind. Well… that’s when they really started to know each other. After that, there were some late and hot phone calls until they finally met each other and I’m going to live it here. I don’t want to give too much away of the plot but there was a lot more going on than I’ve mentioned here but I think it’ll be better for you to discover it for yourselves.
Hannah is great character. She’s 27, lives in Seattle, works in a place that she doesn’t like and is in a failed relationship with a looser guy. She decides to make some changes in her life and lives everything behind and moves back to Colorado.
Matt is a complex character. OMG what a dirty mouth!!! That’s was fantastic! He’s sort of a reclusive, brilliant and famous writer. Primal, dominant, sexy, hot, sweet, vulnerable, but also very weird. He creped me out sometimes I’m not gonna lie. But I don’t’ know… there were times that I actually started to think that he wasn’t right in the head… lol you’ll see what I mean. He’s different, that’s all I know. He has some imperfect issues, things that happened in his life and left their scars. I think these things prevented me to fully connect with him.
The pace was fast and good; however I missed a deeper connection between the characters. Lots of sex scenes (it’s an erotica after all), but not enough “normal stuff” between them. Maybe the author could have taken more time describing those moments. I think it would’ve allowed the reader to connect with them as a couple even more. But this is just me being extremely critical; overall I enjoyed this novel. Plus, the end was good. This is a series but this book had an end at least until you read the epilogue. (less)
Just finished this one and I’m already sad that I’ll have to wait till the end of the year for the final book.
Shit on a shingle! What a crazy ride!
First of all, I’ve got to say that I love when the authors release two books at the same! It’s awesome and good play I might say. Now I feel like I’m in so deep with this story that I can’t let it go. I’ll have to wait till the end of the year to know how it’s going to end this journey.
Second of all, this second book is better than the first one by a long shot. I mean, the first was good. Back then, we were just scratching the surface of this story. Creating theories and trying to solve the puzzles. Lots of questions and not enough answers. But now we’ve got all of them. Who’s King, his secrets, his powers and everything behind the mysteries we saw in the first book.
Plus, I’ve got to say that the pace in this book is also much better. The author executed it very well I was hooked since the first page of the first book. Sure, I had some issues with some little things like Mia’s character. She’s annoying as hell. I lost my patience with her most of the times. I hope eventually, she gets better and stop asking so many stupid questions. But all in all I was just in it for the story and found myself completely absorbed. The twists and mysterious behind this story made it easy to fly through the pages.
This sequel begins right where the previous book ended. King is missing and Mia doesn’t have idea where he is. For two weeks, she keeps going to his office hoping that eventually he’ll come back, but he doesn’t. One day she finds a key of his warehouse and decides to go there to look for some clues about his whereabouts. While she’s there, Talia shows up and gives her a letter from the club 10 delivering King an ultimatum. He has 24 hours to uphold his deal with the others members, because if he doesn’t, the club will confiscated all his properties… including Mia, Mack and Arno. But neither Mia nor Mack knows what are these deals but they know that if they don’t find out and delivery it in time they’ll be lost.
In this journey Mia will experience how is to be in King’s shoes, his secrets and plans for their future, some new places, enemies, betrayals and like I said, lots of twists and turns. The romance in this book also gets better! A lot better! While Mia is still confused about him, King is not hiding behind pretences anymore. He makes it clear that he cares a lot about her. Although King is missing for the most part of this book, Mia made up a version of him in her mind and they have some interesting conversations. I must say that I had a huge grin in my face.
“I want you, Mia. If you do not want me back, then I cannot force you. However, I will not share you with another.”
About the end, well (view spoiler)[I have to say that although I think Mia is annoying, I get what she was feeling. It’s not like any of those things she was going through wouldn’t change her somehow. I’d be surprise if it didn’t. Surely, I’d be damm mad too. I think that was natural to happen, I just hope he can change her back. But man... what he asked of her... shit! this is gonna to be good!

It was such a breath of fresh air. I haven't felt so excited about a book in such a long time. It was so good not knowing what was going to happen in the next page and have to wonder what was going on and all the time trying to figure out the whole mystery. It had me hooked from the start. It was so mind blowing. I had so much fun.
And I was scared too. Yes, scared! I didn't know what was happening; I mean the whole time I was trying to figure out if the protagonist was even sane. Or if what she was telling was true. And what about those things scaring her!?
“No one in this world is scar free.”
I finished it yesterday but I've been processing it in my head since the first page. And to be honest, I don't know how to write this review without spoiling it for anyone. And if I can give you all an advice, I think everybody should read this book without knowing a thing about it. So, I'm just going to tell you that this book is a psychological brain game. There is a romance, although it's not the big part of it. Actually, the main focus is about this young woman trying to figure out why she's in this mental institution.
“Listen closely. Hang on to every word. But most of all, please believe me.”
The plot, starting from the beginning, the climax, till the end was really well written. To be honest, I figured out what was going on in the middle of the book. I don’t know if the author did this on purpose but there were small clues all over the place, you just had put everything together and it was done. But don't go thinking that knowing about it killed the excitement in the end with the big climax... It didn’t, it was somehow still shocking. The author wrote this so well that in the end everything just made perfect sense and I think that's the most important thing when we talk about books like this.
I loved it! All that excitement… wow! that’s why I read and lately I’ve missing this feeling so much. Well… I just hope that I can find another book like this very soon.
So, if you are a mystery lover or even if you're a looking for something different, do yourself a favor and read this book! (less)

But it certainly wasn't one of my favorite books about this subject matter. I missed something here, however, it was good book and very well written.
As we can see in the burb, this book is about Stockholm syndrome, and the author created a story where she followed every step of it. We get to see everything!
And speaking for myself, I didn't lost myself in the romance as I did in other books with the same subject matter, because it just wasn't believable. Not because she couldn't do it, but because this book wasn't about two people falling in love in such a strange situation. This was really about Stockholm syndrome. I'm not sayin that in the other books it wasn't either, it was, but I don't know... I just could fell there was something more, but not in this one.
By the end of the book I didn't fool myself thinking she was indeed in love with him. The way Edded Ravel developed the story we could see all the symptoms of this mental illness developing between the captor and the hostage. I mean, that "love" she felt? It was the way her mind choose to deal and survive that horrible situation. She was attached to him because she needed someone to make her feel safe, protected... he took care of her and she felt so lonely... ans well, he was actually her only company during all that time. But the thing is, she didn't know him, aside from his body language and stuff like that... There wasn't anything... She created a fantasy on her mind and just went with it.
So that's the good thing about this book, I could experience the real deal with her. In the beginning we fell her denial, desperation, need to escape, her acceptance because there just wasn't another choice. And then when things started to change... It was a crazy ride and I really enjoyed. I'm not crazy guys! Don't worry! It's not that I wanted to be in that situation, but it's nice to see how our minds can play us.
The end was a bit weird, we are left with two big questions unanswered and to be honest I hate when this things happen. But to think of it, probably that was her only way out. Although, I still wanted something more. So because of it, I can’t really give it 5 stars, but 4 is well deserved. (less)

Whoa! I Just fin...more“That’s what it’s like to be a prisoner of anything. You want your freedom until you get it,then you feel bare without your chains.”
Whoa! I Just finished this book and I was here wondering if I should write my review now or take my time to think about it all, just like I usually do when I read something that blows my mind.
But I decided I want to do this now while I’m still feeling all this sadness. Yes, that’s how I fell right now… but I also feel relieved and good because I love when I read something that makes me feel so much, so deeply that it makes me shed some ugly tears.
When Tarryn wrote that letter to us about this book and said: “I am a writer and words are my weapon. I want to hurt you. I want my words to be salt, and I want to pour them into your open wound.” I braced myself because I’ve read her other books so and I just knew that she could and would do it. I was afraid because I didn’t know what to expect but I was also excited because Tarryn is one of the best authors out there. She knows how to make us feel and to break us down with her words. And I felt every word. And I suppose that’s why everybody reads, right? So we can feel everything… and at least for me, it doesn’t matter if they are good or bad emotions. I just need to feel and that isn’t happening lately with the books I’ve been reading. So for me this book was a breath of fresh air.
Tarryn’ characters are real. They are good but they’re also bad and that’s what makes us human’s being. While I was reading about them I never felt like I’ve known them before. They didn’t fit the mold. They were someone entirely new.
Isaak is something special… an amazing guy for sure! He’s going to stick with me. Senna… well, actually I didn’t like her for the most part of the book. She frustrated me almost every time. There was always something she should have said or done and never did. She was also hard to understand, I didn’t relate myself to her… She lives in darkness and is totally broken inside. But I cannot say that I didn’t connect with her. I sure did… even when she was numb and didn’t feel a thing.
I don’t know how to write a proper review about this book without spoiling it for anyone. To be honest, I don’t think anyone should try to know what this book is about. Read the blurb and just go with it! Its better this way. Some people told me to do it, and that’s what I did and now I see that was for the best. Especially because there is a huge mystery behind all of this. Actually, that was the most exciting thing for me. I love when I have to figure out some mystery and wonder if I’m going in the right direction or if I’m wrong… So, for me, that was the special touch in this story.
Well, maybe because I’m not patience at all, there was just one small issue for me and that was Tarryn’s slow pace. It just made me restless at times. I needed some answers and I wasn’t getting it as much as I wanted. It was frustrating But then I think that’s how it was suppose to be. After all, this was some kind of a thriller.
All I know is that Tarryn is a genius! Her words are powerful. I was hooked since the first page, a little bit frustrated sometimes yes, but then again, maybe that was her intention since the beginning.
Well, just know that this is not a romance, love is a big part of it, but this isn’t really a love story, it’s more about self discovery I think… like A psychological thriller. It’s dark and heavy at times. I’s not an easy read at al… it’s painful and depressing. Sometimes I had to put it down because it was just too much to take.
So be prepared, because at the end of this, you’re going to be very much surprised and a big mess. Because this story is going to overwhelm you, hurt you and move you. And well… that’s all I’ve asked for.(less)

By far the best in the series. Since I'm team Kade, I enjoyed it a lot. I was so desperate for those moments between them. I didn't have a lot of hope that she could choose him, but after the last 40% of this book, now I think It could be possible. I've always knew that he is the best guy for her, even when she didn't. Blane is a great guy, I like him too, but he's just not the right guy for her.
It amazes me how Tiffany can write a love triangle so well. I mean, she did it in a way that it's nobody's fault and also there was no cheating, betrayals... It was all about the consequences of their own actions. It was nice that Kat only let her guard down between her and Kade after the break up with Blane, after all she was committed to him. That was when she finally let herself feel everything.
Tiffany writes this series in a way that I really never got mad at anyone. Like I said it's nobody's fault. And Kathleen feel so guilt all the time about everything that I can't even blame her. She's not selfish or callous about their fellings, actually on the contrary, she put their hapiness before her own. It's impossible to be mad at her. Especially when we also felt her pain and sometimes it wasn't even her fault, when she hasn't done anything wrong.
So Tiffany, I have to congratulate her, because this isn't something easy to do and she does it so well, so right.(less)

This is a trilogy, but each book is short, so for now we only had an introduction to this story. So maybe if I had the entire book in my hands, my opinion would be different, but for just this one… not so much.
First, the female lead character is boring, at least for now. She’s that kind of woman who build her life for the others expectations and not herself. She’s what her parents and her boyfriend expects her to be, and she’s okay with that because she feels safe this way, but she also has another side of her, someone wild, but she doesn’t like to explore this side, she doesn’t feel safe with this side of her. So this first part of the story is about Kasie struggling with herself. Second, this book is told from her pov so we don’t get to know much about Robert. So I don’t know where I stand with him. We know that he’s an intense and wild guy. He’s also a sex alpha male, who knows what he wants. Oh and also I do know that I’m disgusted with that boyfriend of her… Dave. I don’t have words for him. But Robert... like I said we still don’t know a lot about him, but the little we do is enough to make us swoon.
Kasie lives a boring life. Everything is boring, even her 6 years boyfriend. So one weekend she and her friend Simone goes to Vegas and there her friend convinces her to take some risks like wear a sex dress with high heels and sleep with a stranger. She enters the casino and draws the attention of everybody, including Robert Dade. They are attracted to each other, Robert is powerful, sexy, wild and just wants one thing: her! So she decides to sleep with him and the sex is amazing and primal, it explored the side of her she never knew existed.
For Kassie it was just one night, some kind of fantasy she would just left behind, she could go back to her world and be that perfect woman again, the problem is that she can’t stop thinking about that night. But what she didn’t know is that Robert has no intention to let her go, he wants that woman so he goes after her and becomes her new client. So now she’s forced to work with him, after all this the chance she’s hoping to get all this time, he is a billionaire and powerful CEO of a security firm, so it means a lot to her job.
But Kassie doesn’t know what she wants and even who she is. So this first part is just about her trying to deal with all this issues and her guilt over her betrayal. For now there isn’t a lot of romance here, is more about sex, but that is just because Robert and Kassie still doesn’t know each other very well. So they’re not there yet. Oh and there’s a cliffhanger too. I get the feeling the next book is going to be much better. But for now, I’ll give it just 3 stars. (less)

I don't know... it was just kind of silly sometimes. All this Greek system was just too much. I'm not from US, but I can't believe that things like that could actually happen, not with that intensity at least. Like I said, it was just too much. And althouth Maysie had her good moments, she was so ridiculuos sometimes. I really rolled my eyes a lot. But I have to give it to Walters, because she did created an amazing guy. A 5 stars guy.(less)
