I am so disappointed! I really liked the first book in the series, but this one - not so much. I liked Sawyer - she is a good heroine and the reason for the 2 stars. She deserves SO much better than she got! I did not like Kaden, he is a controlling prick. Not a hot alpha. He also subjects her to things no one who has been though what she did - should ever be pressured into! Can you warn us on the ménage action next time? Normally it may not bother me, but I thought this scenario was horribly in ...more

Not bad.

It's a pretty good book, has its pros and cons.

Pros? It's seriously HOT!

Also, Kaden is pretty good, I liked him. The writing is awesome, as you'd expect from this author and the plot is decent.

Sawyer sucks.

I get that she's been through a lot and all that, but for some reason, I just can't say I like her too much.

The book is still worth reading though.

I love Jamie Begley; I devour her books. Her heros are often complicated and flawed yet I still end up rooting for them. Unfortunately, I really struggled with Tainted because the hero, Kaden, was a dick. I wish I had a more sophisticated or insightful way to describe his behavior but dickish basically sums it up. Kaden was cold, controlling, and cruel. I never felt that he truly cared for Sawyer. She was an object that he wished to control and dominate. The disconnect in their relationship was ...more

It was an ok read but to be honest the main leads did not stand out for me but the writing was so much better in this book.

I'm glad, after that ending from Teased, that we got Sawyer's pov. I was interested in finding out what happened to her after Digger kidnapped her. She was kept chained in a basement with many other women and kept drugged. Her captors were one girl short for a party scheduled for a bunch of rock stars. Even though Digger has special plans for Sawyer she happens to be the only woman free of bruises at the moment and since the guys only want the girls for one night they decide to take her.

2.5 :(
Ok,so this went from like 4 stars at 70%, to 2 stars for me, after that totally uncalled for menage!!
Made it 3 stars just for Sawyer...Kaden whom I liked at the beginning,lost his appeal after including Ax in their relationship:(

I was expecting more of emotional build up between the two after she was rescued for the second time, but instead, their chemistry just fizzled out for me and I find many other reviewers agreeing to these points!
Reread January 2015

Original read January 21 2014

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG, that's all I have to say - except that I have a major girl crush right now on Jamie Begley!! I absolutely ADORE her Last Rider's series, and now the VIP series!! I am so happy that she has connected the two - and the way that Jamie has done that makes you go -- WTF??!!
Just awesomness!! Really dying here for Shade's book though - now that I know the details from both series!! P

I knew it but I didn't know it. After you read the book, you'll know what I mean.

Did I just read that????

That was....that was..........

Tainted tells the story of one girl's struggle for freedom and one man's fight to get her there. All Sawyer ever wanted was to be free. Ever since she was a little girl she has dreamed of being free of her past, being free of her mother's paranoia and living free, traveling with her best friend Vida. But she was taken away from the only person that ever meant anything to her, kidnapped by a ruthless pimp seeking to overt

1 ⭐- Ugh! Didn't like it or triggers or pet peeve!

Zero is an asshole and Zeroine is a dumbass. Mix bdsm and menage and the mess is complete. I did not like the heroes and some things deeply irritated me. I could not remember the story and I think I liked it the first time I read it. It does not hold for second reading.

After the concert, he had picked two from the mass of followers, who trailed after them from concert to concert, hoping for the chance to come

Kaden, a famous rock star lead singer of Mouth2Mouth was forced to return to limelight, to a lifestyle that he swore off, the drugs and women. But when he found this beautiful drugged out redhead in his bed... his first instinct is to throw her out, but when he learned she is a victim of a sex slave ring, he will do everything to protect her.

Sawyer thought she was finally saved when she landed on Kaden's room after being kidnapped and drugged.... she just wants to go and fi

Okay guys so I started reading this author a few years ago and only got 4 into the reading order. So I decide to start over and follow the authors order. Let me just say that I don't agree with most of the reviews. These books are so good. Like really, really good. I can't put them down. This author is now a one click for me. I can't get enough of Jamie Begley. I highly recommend is series. Follow the reading order!!!!
Mar 12, 2018 rated it did not like it  ·  review of another edition
Omg this book made my blood boil. I was actually enjoying what I was reading until Kaden shared Sawyer with Ax out if freaking nowhere! It was disgusting that Sawyer was forced to give Ax a blowjob. Honestly, I don’t believe that Kaden loved Sawyer. Sawyer deserved better!
Decided to read this one again since I love JB's books. Yes it was just as good the second time as the first. I'm not usually a fan of the rock star romances but Kaden did it for me and I loved the way that his and Sawyer's relationship developed slowly.

First read 2/9/14
The VIP series by Janie Begley just keeps getting better and better. I usually don’t read rock star romances but damn if Begley didn’t write a 5 star book for me surrounding a reformed rock star and a down to earth, kidnapped wom

OMG In the space of 2 pages we have 2 come to Jesus moments. I don't usually write reviews but with this book I have to write one on praise of Jamie Begley. I am not praising the actual writing grammar, syntax etc because in some cases it could be MUCH MUCH better. ( point in case needs better proof readers,beta readers and ARC readers to review such errors.) But I compliment her on creating a world/universe not unlike that of Kristen Ashley series of books that intersect,interweave and create f ...more

I'm probably going to get throttled for this - but I wasn't impressed with the hero. It's weird - because starting out, he seemed like he was caring and had a special spot for the heroine....then he just became this jerk. I mean, here she is, the actual victim, and he's all "me, me, me" and just a total a-hole.
The sex scenes were hot.

There is a trigger scene: (view spoiler)

Jamie Begley did it again:)
It was a really really good read!
I love her books and with each one she doesn't fail to leave us all shocked and saying 'WOW' :)
The book is totally worth the read. I couldn't put the book down and hence finished it in one sitting.
While reading the first book I thought Sawyer would be a shy and timid girl but in this books she is nothing but a strong and fierce girl who wants to do the right thing.
Kaden is a total badass(and he lives up to his image). We see flashbacks

I don't know what to think about this book. While I really liked Kaden, I didn't like one of his decisions, like didn't like it a LOT!! That same decision had Sawyer making her own decision that I didn't like. Combining that, the book lost a star. Everything was going along swimmingly, until (view spoiler) ...more

Did I really just read that???

Callie is.....alive???

And Callie is..........

Seriously.......Shade’s Fall NEEDS to come out already!!!!

Great writing & great story Jamie Begley!
AlligatorSmith loves to read
Need to read this one within the entire Jamie Begley multi-verse before Shade and Lily's story from the Long Riders.

Rereading April 2018. Liked this one the first time but not as much as the first one or third one in the series. Even so, many of the secrets related to King, Sawyer, Vida, and Callie (and some Last Riders) are found out to a certain extent here, so it's an interesting read.

I really don't like Kade as much the second time around, especially his bdsm tendencies that he doesn't talk
4.5 stars!!
Another one of those why did I wait so long to read ones..
It just kept staring at me from my kindle and I gave in..
We get another Arrogant, Asshole, Alpha - LOVED It!!
We get a non whiney, non helpless understated sexy heroine - Loved It Some More!!!
and we get a plot, hawt sex scenes with nice flowing suspenseful fast paced story line..
Another I enjoyed very very much..
