Sissy's Romance Book Review
'Captivated by Crimson' by Brynn Myers is the story of Andrik and Nola.
This story had a lot of excitement going on. We have Erzsebet who has been imprisoned in a portrait
by Andrik for all her wrong doing. But her son Paul is trying to help her escape. In addition there are allot of Vamp Ferals being turned out that are attacking people. Two attacked Nola but she was found by Andrik who turned her and saving her life but he erased her memory. Andrik was drawn to Nola and he knew he had to save h

Review by Jenny

I received an arc of Captivated by Crimson in exchange for my honest review. 

The blurb for this book is so fascinating that when asked to red & review I automatically jumped at the chance. Paranormal Romance novels are a genre I love to sink my teeth into ( See what I did there). This story starts out with sooooo much information and characters that you are in information overload. I actually had to grab a pen and piece of paper and s

Fascinating plot featuring vampires! Those of you who love your vampires on the darker side will love this book. I was immediately drawn in, and what a ride it is. Nola, Quinn and Arianna are flawlessly written characters who stand out. Their talent for creating gothic art surrounds this story. Andrik, the male hero, is compelled to save Nola for unknown reasons. Ancient gods are out to protect humanity against an evil enemy thought to be long gone. Many of the secondary characters like Reese, w ...more

I have been waiting for this story for awhile and Brynn did not disappoint!!

The main characters Nola and Andrik were developed beautifully and with enough intrigue that kept me turning the page. The side characters were ever present throughout the story and just as impactful as the main characters. The world development was the perfect balance of mystery and fact, leaving the author open for further books in this world. Which I hope we get!! I'd love to see what happens with the side characters

Not sure where to start with this book. There was so much drama unfolding from beginning to end. The author definitely knows how to keep her readers attention straight from the start. I really loved the characters especially Andrik, I hope the author plans to write more stories with them. Andrik definitely sweeps you up into his role, you just want to know so much more about him. His back story, present and future. Paul gave me the creeps, I just wanted to scratch his eyeballs out lol Bathory wa ...more

Oh My Gods what a book! I love paranormal Romance. It is
like my favorite genre. This book is so well written and I love
that you take on vampirism. It is my first book by Brynn
Myers, but it will certainly not be my last.

This is Nola and Adrick's story. And of course the crazy
vampire to wish to be Queen. The night that Nola is attacked
by feral vampires Adrick can't help but save her. She reminds
him of someone in his past. But from then on he's totally
linked to her. And he is drawn to her and

A very creative and unique take on Vampires and their origins. Deliciously dark and complex characters. A plot that was fresh and original. Romance that was sensual and smoldering. A MUST read for lovers of the Vampire/paranormal genre!

*I received a complimentary ARC of this story in order to read and provide a voluntary, unbiased and honest review, should I choose to do so.

Welcome to a new breed of vampires!



These vampires are not simply bloodsuckers, they are descendants from gods. Meet The Sanguines, the purebloods. These vampires are children of Nyx, the Greek Goddess of Night. They are blessed (or cursed) with supernatural powers of life and death. They can walk among human day or night. And no, they don’t sparkle in the daylight.



However, with greatness always comes strife when other vampires wanted to kill the purebloods to assume thei

Dark, edgy, gritty, yet fun! Brynn's take on Greek Gods, Elizabeth Bathory, and the free-spirited artist who's caught up in it all, was a brilliant twist on your typical vampire story. Five-stars!

When I first got an e-reader some 3 years ago, I gorged myself on paranormal reads. Vampires, werewolves, ghosts, etc. It got to the point that I was so over-read on the genre that I stopped reading it altogether. Since it had been a good year since I had dipped my toes, I decided to go back into the mystical and mythological realm and have been reading it again. Luckily for me, titles like Captivated By Crimson have crossed my path.

The beginning of this story was very confusing for me, several points were discussed but never expanded upon and my confusion lasted for most of the book. The addition of Greek Gods seemed to cloud up the storyline, there was too much going on to keep track of and it was apparent in many places. The explanation for the Sanguine and the ferals was brief with little detail and honestly I had to go searching for the one paragraph that they were explained in to try to understand it as the book progr ...more

I loved how Ms. Myers had a new twist on vampires. This was my first book by this author, but it will not be my last. All of the characters were well developed. She integrates mythical creatures/gods and goddesses with vampires flawlessly. This book centers around Nola and Andrik. Nola is an artist working at the gallery, with another artist, that her sister owns. They are commissioned to make mirror by a shady/creepy man with lots of money. He wants the mirror to pay homage to Elizabeth Bathor ...more
Romance Between The Sheets
Captivated by Crimson is about a girl being in the wrong place at the wrong time and then thrown into a world that she never knew existed.

This book for me had a solid base and a different take on vampires but it lacked in character development.  I liked Nola and Andrik for the lead characters but there where so many characters that had their own story lines that their relationship that was being built got lost.  And characters were continuing to be added late in the story and they  also had thei

This story had amazing potential. Based on the blurb I was very excited to get a chance to read this book, but once I dived into I felt like I was in a history class instead of reading a story. I spent most of my time trying to keep track of all of the characters facts, names and how they were related than I did actually reading the story. It took away from my reading experience immensely. Some of the characters seemed to be so far removed for the main story that we could have done with out them ...more

I am so happy that I got the chance to read this book before anyone else...I loved it!!!
This is the type of paranormal romance I have been waiting for for a long time. I like the fact that the female lead is in the dark about the paranormal world and that the male lead wants to protect her and not so much claim her.
I love Nola! She is funny, hard working, independent, and so very creative. Paul, even though he is the bad guy and a total douche canoe, was pretty outspoken. He was evil and malici

Captivated by Crimson starts off with a lot of information that at times was slightly difficult to follow along with. The character names were easy to confuse with others because they were each similar yet complex. But still gives you crucial information for the story to follow. 
 
This story is focused on Andrik and Nola primarily with plenty of secondary characters that give it more depth. An interesting story line with vampires and ferals. Which has a different take than usual as these are turn

This PNR is a great story, this is the love story of Andrik ( a centuries old vampire) and Nola a thirty something year old artist. Follow what happens to them after they meet and the battles they have to fight. The storyline is fun whilst still leaving you wanting to know what will happen next. I completely enjoyed this story from start to finish and would recommend it to any other paranormal fans out there.

Just when I think someone cannot come up with a new twist on vampires, I find this book and realize yes, someone can and has. This vampire story was fun to read because it was different. I HAD to keep turning the page (well, taping the screen). The characters are well-developed and not flat. The pace of the plot pushed the adventure to the very end.

This is a new to me author, and I was rather pleased. Captivated by Crimson is a very interesting paranormal book.

I was a bit overwhelmed in the beginning with all of the details of the past. However after a while, I was able to absorb the information and get lost in the story. I was rather intrigued with the Greek aspects of things and found it to be a very nice twist.

This book was more than just paranormal, it was a story of friendship, love and loyalty. I loved how Creative Art was tied int

Ok I do love a good vampire book. This book started off good and sadly declined. I found in some areas the author was descriptive, whilst other areas of importance were skimmed over. I found myself cringing at the last few chapters. The important parts of the book were rushed and I disconnected. The dialect in the last few chapters almost boarded on cheesy. It had great potential but failed to deliver..

DNF at 35%. This review is based solely on the 35% of the book that I read (Intrigued Part I).

* I received an eARC of this novel from the author in exchange of an honest review.

The synopsis reads like a paranormal romance, but the actual story feels more like a dramatic soap opera with vampires complete with family deceit and dark secrets. Everything I was expecting from this book went out the window after I figured that out. Had I not walked into this book with that expectation, this review wou
