⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐! The Bandit, book 1 of 2. Destitute Mian steals to feed her son. In his quest for vengeance Angel takes her hostage!

“She struggled and whined, so I fucked her harder. The only thing that moved was our hips. Even as she fought, she never stopped fucking me back.”

The Bandit (book 1) opens up to the life of nineteen-year-old unemployed single mother Mian Ross, Sprite. Destitute by her father’s actions,
'The Bandit' has been sitting on my TBR list for quite some time now. At last, I got around to reading it. It didn't disappoint. This was one steamy read with plenty of push and pull between the main characters.

The heroine, Mian Ross, has known a lot of tragedy in her young life. She's survived the death of her mother, only to be orphaned when her father is incarcerated for murder. To make matters worse, the man that her father killed was her father's best friend and like a second father to her.

3* too little, too late STARS! *unpopular opinion alert*

Where to begin? ...This was my first read from BB Reid (Please don't throw tomatoes on me!). I can say that The Bandit was one of my anticipated read this November. The cover, blurb and everything was so intriguing. But something feels off and I didn't enjoy it, so let's take a deep breath.


An unexpected child and desperate single mother, Mian Ross needs money so badly. No family around except her father is in jail, for long time because a

I fell in love with B.B. Reid's writing when I started her Broken Love series and decided that there was no finer bully (and I mean F-I-N-E) than Keiran. I've got to say that although Angel was a different breed of bully, he gave Keiran a run for his money and I loved him just the same.

Mian was a 19-year old single mother who got kicked out by her God-fearing aunt and uncle when she got knocked up after being raped. She was on her last days of food and had no means with which to support herself

I loved this book so, so much!

This is a must read for dark romance/suspense fans. Just forget about all responsibilities when you open this book. I didn't take a breath until I turned the last page, this story robbed me of air. It's been a long time since a book has consumed like this, nothing existed beyond the pages of this book. I had high expectations when I first saw this on my kindle. My expectations were blown to bits. You know that feeling you get when you finish a book, the o

Ho-lee shitz.

I see you Reid, I fucking see you. And this book was bloody awesome. High-five!

I thought that after Kieran, I wasn't going to fall for anymore bad boys, because really, it doesn't get better than him, but fuck my life did Angel give him a run for his money!

This book was hot . I'm talking panty-melting-instant-gratification-and-fucked-six-ways-from-sundays hot.

I had high expectations for this book. I have heard of B.B.Reid but haven't had the pleasure of reading this author's book. This is my first book from her and must I say:


I mean, it started off really promising and I was fucking ecstatic thinking that I have found another good read. But alas, it prove my judgment wrong yet again.

So Mian (pronounced My-an ), was kidnapped by Angel Knight.


Yes yes, I get the irony. He was the devil and the big bad wolf but he was named Angel Knight . B

Oh, how I love BB Reid's books.
I have a book hangover. Seriously.
If you've read BB's books before, you know what you're getting yourself into... if, you haven't... well...what are you waiting for?

A dark romance with lots of irresistible tension. This is a must read!

"Angel Knight was neither my guardian angel or knight in shining armor. He was my enemy."

Mian had a good life. She had a wonderful father that wanted the best for her. And she also had a protector that wanted her in every way possible.

But she lost everything because of a war she didn't start. And her first love turned into her biggest enemy.

Angel couldn't stop his attraction towards Mian when he was youn

Man oh man. I could not put this book down. I devoured it. And I'm glad the next book is coming soon. Because I NEED it. This was my first book by B.B. Reid and I am a huge fan. This book was dark and dirty and suspenseful and I didn't stop reading until I was finished and even after I still have not stopped thinking about it.

The Bandit is a story about revenge and survival. Mian is barely getting by and is pretty much all alone in the world except for her friend next door and

Chiariamo SUBITO SUBITO una cosa: questo è un dark ROMANCE. Dark perchè l'atmosfera e la situazione che sono alla base della storia includono tutte la caratteristiche delle storie oscure e scorrette. ROMANCE perchè come disse Dante: l'amore muove il sole e le altre stelle e qui l'amore e il suo fratello odio smuovono stelle e galassie. Partiamo dal presupposto principale e che mi ha fatto adorare Bandit ovvero la sua protagonista: MIAN. Lasciate stare le molli donnicciole che vengono rapite, le ...more

This is a B.B. Reid book. I'd be surprised if it was anything less than 5 stars.


I fell in love with this authors writing style over a year ago when I first picked up Fear Me one lazy morning. And then I finished and was blown away and went full on stalker on her ass. And the rest, as they say, is history.

It's not just the descriptiveness in which she writes though. I love this authors mind. The way she can think of stories that continuously shock and challenge her readers. She pushes your limit

This MUST read grabs you at page one!

Dark, suspenseful, nail biting... are just some of the words to describe The Bandit by BB Reid. It grabs your attention right away.

When Angel is made to "babysit" Mian when they were younger, he tries to keep his distance. He's much older than her and there's no way he could have feeling for her.

After not speaking or seeing each other for 3 years, he wants revenge after she steals from him. So he takes the one thing from her that means the most. Her Son.

Holy hotness! I'm not gonna lie, B.B. Reid had me terrified to read this. I saw the words "stolen son" in the blurb, and wanted to run the opposite way. I read the darkest of dark, but I cannot handle anything to do with kids being hurt or abused in any way. I worried for nothing, because there is none of that going on here!

I looooooved this damn book. Enemies to lovers is my absolute favorite, and a trope that B.B. does so well. Angel and Mian's push and pull, their sexual tension, their bante

I feel like I'm having Stockholm syndrome otherwise why should I Love Angel Knight? :D
I really enjoyed reading this book, I was fascinating book! It was a great dark romance with a lot of tension and love & hate that was going on in the story and it really was so much more than I expected it to be.
I really recommended this book to everyone if you like dark romance.

GODDAMIT!!!! I was so looking forward to this book. Can I for once get a great villain Hero without him being a whore with other women?!?! I might come back to it later, but i can't read a depressing book about abusive men with all the latest political news right now.

Holy hell in a hand basket! The Bandit was seriously a mind bender roller coaster ride! Dark twisted erotic, a little sinister play by play revenge and just when you think you know the score the author ups the ante with one hell of a mind bender plot twist.

Sono appena riuscita a ricordarmi il mio nome perché pensavo di averlo dimenticato, il passo successivo è stato di ricontrollare che fossi ancora tutta intera perché non ricordo di essermi alzata e aver fatto alcuni passi per arrivare al pc per scrivere alcuni pensieri a caldo. Quindi se ho pensato e poi scritto vuol dire che il mio cervello non si è fottuto del tutto ... questa è già una buona cosa !
Bandit è un centrifuga a 2000 giri ne esci totalmente sopraffatto posso dirlo con sincerità ...
