I want my brain cells back.

This is approximately 400 light years different from the Kathleen Turner series.

A badass FBI agent?

He’s a pussy.
My daughter is more capable and better trained than him.

Thank God the heroine (his prisoner) saves his life more than once. I was scared shitless there wouldn’t be any HEA.

The first half of the book wasn’t bad but the second half can be used as a torture weapon on your biggest enemies. Permanent eye damage from rolling them too hard guarantee

This is why this book is not a solid 4 or 5 star read for me. I know some of you think I am a bit anal when it comes to all things Irish but I cannot help it. If I wrote a novel set in America and started using words like “fuel” for “gas” or “rubbish” for ”garbage” or “courgette” for “zucchini”, “path” instead of “sidewalk” (the author did actually have the brother say "sidewalk" in the book - an Irish person would NEVE

"He was an FBI agent. She was a wanted fugitive. To think they could be together was like saying maybe a shark could go vegetarian. It just wasn't going to happen."

First let me say I've been on a romantic suspense high since the year began, and this book took me higher. One of my favorite types of romance is when two unlikely people come together and realize that in spite of their differences they are perfect for each other. In this case we have an FBI agent and a wanted criminal he's been cha

3.5 Stars

A fun, quick audiobook. Clarissa is a very wanted computer hacker/thief, but loses her memory completely! Classic opposites attract with Erik being an FBI agent and Clarissa being a thief. Lots of snarky banter and a few sizzling scenes. Non-stop action at every turn and I loved that Clarissa was a bad-ass! The narration was pretty good, too. Clarissa's accent wasn't heavily overdone, just right.

Not bad for an Audible Daily Deal!

Just finished Blank Slate and Tiffany Snow has created another wonderful romantic suspense novel :) I loved the chemistry between Clarissa and Erik. Their banter at times made me giggle. There was a lot of suspense and action in this story and there were a few twists thrown in that I never expected! 5 stars!

On a side note.. I also loved the serial format because getting new chapters every few weeks was more enjoyable for me than having to wait almost a year (like with Out of Turn).

Dear Tiffany Snow,
I've been pissed off for a while now, waiting for the next installment in the Kathleen Turner Series.
I mean seriously, how long do you expect people to wait?
Then I stumbled upon this, book.
Saw some reviews about it also being in installments and wanted to bang my head against the Kindle.
Luckily for me tho, I looked further into it and realised I didn't have to wait like those other suckers because the book was complete.
You're now off my shite list.
I've had my fix of adventure.

I was intrigued when I noticed this was a kindle serial (short episodes that will automatically upload every 2 weeks). First off I absolutely love the Kathleen Turner series by Tiffany Snow so I couldn't pass this up. I'm hooked only after episode 1! Yes, it is short, with only a couple chapters but I am itching to read the next installment. If you are up for reading something thats a little suspense plus the making of some sexy chemistry, then give this a try. ...more

I sincerely apologize, but I am SO glad that I finally finished this book. It makes me a bit sad to think that there are so many good books out there that I will not have a chance to read in my life and yet I spent precious hours reading this one. This was so definitely not at all my type of book. It's not that the writing is bad because it isn't. It's not that the plot isn't interesting because it is. (That extra star is for the HUGE twist that I absolutely did not see coming.) It's the toxic c ...more

Just amazing..amazing..amazing.

A male character that was a MAN but not too over the top about it.

I didn't read this as a serial, just right through as I was a little late to the party. As always, Ms. Snow never disappoints. Truly, I was somewhat hesitant to pick this one up and even let it sit for ages in my "to read" section. It's not that I didn't think it would most likely be good, but I love the "Kathleen Turner" series so much, I didn't want to be let down if this book didn't match hit wonder kind of thinking I suppose. Lucky for me and other fans of Ms. Snow's works, this on ...more

This review is predicated on the fact that this book is 90% romance and I am NOT a romance reader. The description of the book was very misleading in my opinion and had I realized sooner that it was romance and not primarily an thriller, my review might be a little different.

With that said, one of the major problems I had with this book is the POV head-jumping that goes on between the two main characters - granted I listened to this on audio, but it seemed as if the POV changed even mid-sentence

This book is a Kindle Serial. So far the first four segments have been released. I am so hooked! Tiffany A. Snow has a gift for writing romantic suspense. She develops smoking hot chemistry between the characters, scary ass bad guys, a crime that is questionable, deceit coming from the good guys, and an adventure the characters need to go through before there is hope for true love. All I can say is WoW! Fantastic....I cannot wait for the rest of the segments in this serial.

Good plot but too slow and corny in spots.

My Musings

I am so glad I found this talented author! This book has great characters and an intriguing plot. It kept me engaged from the beginning to the end. I can't wait to read more books from this fantastic author.Happy ☺reading 📚!
Nope. I can't. I just can't.
Too clichéd and corny. This just is personal preference but I am sick of red-haired heroines with green eyes that act as a substitute for an actual personality.
I am not against romantic suspense, but the sinopsis led me to believe that this would be more suspense and less romance.
I had to drop it when a guy is all surprised that the super mega hacker he so admires is a girl. I know the book is trying to lampshade this but still it didn't work for me and I had to roll

As an untraditional romance story, Blank Slate certainly delivers. The deadly, sexy game of predator and prey—hunter and hunted—that Clarissa and Erik fall into is full of action, bumps in the road, and slow but steamy romance. What occurs between these two unlikely lovers when they disastrously, marvelously find each other will have readers pining to figure out how they'll end up together... if they even make it out alive.

However, as a romantic thriller, Blank Slate disappoints. As you know, I'

Special Agent Langston has slowly become obsessed with catching the cyber thief that has escaped all his attempts for the last year. But when he finally does have her under arrest, events spiral and Clarissa ends up with amnesia, and no use to anyone. Is poor little Clarissa faking in an effort to escape her crimes? Will Erik Langston uncover the truth?

I loved this book. Despite the cover and the synopsis making it look like an FBI thriller, it's 50/50 mix of romance, too. Don't pick this book u

Tiffany A Snow is my fave romantic suspense author. The Kindle Serial format was difficult to get used to, but it did give me time to read other books as I waited for the next episode.

I really liked Clarissa's character both during and after her amnesia. And who didn't love Eric?? Their interactions and the sexual tension were believable. The location descriptions from the snow storm to all the cities, I really felt like I was right there with them.

The true identity of Solomon -- whoa. Like, se

Raging hormones.

Downloaded this book through Kindle Unlimited, that was the good part. Don't want a book like this in my library. Terrible car crash, she doesn't even know her name, but knows what kind of coffee or toothpaste she likes. Middle of fights all FBI agent Erik and O'Connell thinks is sex. Don't waste your time on this book.

I'm not sure whether I love or hate the 'Kindle serial' concept. Okay, I love it, but it's going to kill me to wait two weeks between episodes! Damn you Ms. Snow for your cliffhanger! :-P I'm already hooked on these characters and this story and can't wait to find out what happens next. ...more
Liked author's writing style but felt the last episode was somewhat rushed (kindle series). I would have purchased this book as a whole and probably liked it even more. Perhaps I'm not patient enough for waiting two weeks. ...more

This author sure knows how to write romantic suspense books. Not as good as her Kathleen Turner series but still a good read. It had some good twists and steamy scenes.

An X-rated Lifetime movie.

I got this because it looked like a fun thriller. But it focuses more on the romance, filled with tropes and cliches.

Why does every story with an FBI agent have to mention that said agent has “graduated top of their class at the academy”? That’s just one of the many overused tropes to be found.

Plot twists seem more like coincidences, and not actually earned. More than a few times I said “oh come ON!” while reading.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with romances, if that’

Tiffany Snow is becoming one of my favorite authors. I thoroughly enjoyed the Kathleen Turner series so decided to give this a try. Wow. I'm so glad I did. This is exactly the kind of book I have a love/hate relationship with. I love it because I just can't put it down, and I hate it because I just can't put it down! It consumes me. Great characters, intense suspense, action, romance and a little snark to go along with it. Definitely recommend! ...more

“Here, you drive," Erik said.

"What? Why?"

"In case we do have to start shooting; I have a badge and you don't," he explained.

"Fine. But for the record, I'm a better shot than you are."

"For your information, I was the youngest kid awarded the rifle shooting merit badge in my troop," Erik said, holding the wheel as she climbed across him.

"Is that supposed to impress me?"

"Just enough to get you back into my bed." She took over the gas pedal and Erik slid out from underneath her.

"It takes more than fancy shooting," she said loftily, making a sharp turn.

Erik was thrown against the door. "Would you warn me before you do that?"

"It's a car chase!”
