Read from January 26 to 31, 2011



The "X-men" comparison would be correct, in more ways than one. *wiggles eyebrows*

I really liked the concept of the story, and the sex scenes were HOT!! I liked the characters, Remy is such a Horn Dog, with a super cool power. Creed...now this is the one I'm seriously looking forward to more of.(whew) Annika- I really liked her smart ass and full of attitude character, who also has some super charged powers of her own. I really want to read more about Annika and Creed. Now for Haley...I didn't connect with her on any level, good or bad. It just felt like the tired old "I can't do anything" heroine. Sure in the end, she managed a little something to prove herself, but don't they all??
I guess the biggest surprise was the M/M sex scene, I didn't see that one coming!

I think Larissa Ione, and Stephanie Tyler did a really good job with the writing. I could pick out some of Ione's sense of humor, but I really couldn't tell where one ended and the other began.

Overall this was a fun read, and I enjoyed it alot. I will be reading the rest of the series.

28.0% ""Then say it. Say it's my show." No. But before she could stop herself, she obeyed, speaking the words between panting breaths.. "Yes, Remy...your show." "My house, my rules, and that's the way we play, all right?" he asked, and it wasn't fair, because she would've promised him anything if he'd just make her come." 7 comments

Well, I'm not too far in, but I like it, and since Larissa Ione is associated with it I can't imagine not liking it!!!

Jennifer The 3rd book is the BEST in the series. You'll see Creed and Annika in every book as well......Wait til you read the next book, Remy is not the horndog compared to the heroine in the next one. lol! That's all I'm gonna say about that!

Thanks Jennifer, I look forward to it. I really wanted to give this one 4 stars, but i think Haley got in the way.


Jennifer I know, her name kept reminding me of a porn star. lol


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Great review, Rhonda! Sorry I'm late in reading your review! That M/M scene caught me by surprise too!! Wasn't expecting that at all!

I suppose you could!!! ;o)

Karen ~ Divhine I am reading the second in the series now and it is just as hot!


Rhonda Karen wrote: "I am reading the second in the series now and it is just as hot!"

I'll get there, I almost went right to it, But I needed to give myself a little break!! LOL
Let me know what you think!!


Karen ~ Divhine I am almost done with it and I like it. The reviews for the next in the series are really good too.


Rhonda Karen wrote: "I am almost done with it and I like it. The reviews for the next in the series are really good too."

Some have told me it's the best in the series so far. I might read book 2 when I'm done with Surrender, that is unless I want to go right into the next book!!!


Karen ~ Divhine I have Surrender in my very large TBR stack. Shall I move it up?


Rhonda Karen wrote: "I have Surrender in my very large TBR stack. Shall I move it up?"

I'm not very far in yet, I'm hoping to change that tonight. I'll let you know, but so far I like it!! It's not a fluffy book.


Rhonda Karen wrote: "Fluffy?"

Light, Fluffy HR. It's been a little dark so far...I like it!!


Karen ~ Divhine I think I will like it too.
