As Anna realizes the truth of her Master's desire, she must decide what it is that she truly wants.

There is a subculture within our own world that you’ve only heard whispers of. The conspiracy theorists wish they knew Anna’s story. What the conspi

Marissa Honeycutt is killing me slowly. I'm astounded how she can shock me at every turn. Just when I think it's dark, it get much worse. The plot thickens, new players emerge, and my world is turned on it's axis.

This is the fourth book in The Life of Anna, this series should be read in order. Five parts total. Make sure you have your big girl panties on, this series is one of the darkest of have ever read, with a twist of paranorma

The story of Anna continues with Ensnared.
First off let me start by saying
You can’t miss it.

Anna is still struggling with the death of the most important person in her life.
She is constantly dreaming of him and it is stopping her from moving on.
He was her soul mate.
But she needs to move on and out of the darkness before she sinks and can’t pull herself back out.

Devin is still a monster.
One that gets more and more powerful.
Of course he does it at Anna’s expens

Some Hope For Anna At Last!

Picking up two years after book 3 ended, Anna exists in a drug-induced haze. Devin controls the drugs, and thereby, controls Anna. She craves a state of unfeeling, escaping her heartache in the numbness.

Eventually, her health begins to suffer and Anna begins to lose her usefulness. Unwilling to lose his favorite toy and secret weapon, Devin demands that Anna begin dancing again and weans her from the drugs. Always a step ahead, he continues to keep Anna under his thumb
Never have I looked forward to reading a book in this series as much as this one and then when I won a copy in a prize I was over the moon happy.

So much happened in this book and the way it made me feel was sometimes indescribable never felt so angry and anxious reading a book before.
I wanted to pull my hair out with the frustration I felt for Anna again. How she keeps going I don't know. Devin can he get any more evil and sadistic?

So two years on and Anna has turned to drugs to numb the pain sh

I'm so glad I have 1 book left. This book left me drained. I cried the whole book. Like ugly tears, I can't breath tears.
Rin W. Vitale

This book is, by far, the dirtiest I have ever read. And God knows I have my fair share of dirty reads.

Really, this series is getting dirtier and dirtier and crueler, meaner. I am amazed with Devin "dirtiness" honestly. And Oh my God, Devin is the meanest bastard character I've ever read. His amusement of torturing Anna was beyond me.


Me summing up this will be:


OH SO CRUEL CRUEL CRUEL... I wish I could redo what I read.

And oh so ridiculous sometimes. LOL

But who care

This is the most disturbing series I have ever read. I had nightmares every night after reading this series, and yet, I finished all five books in three days because I had to know what happened. I wasn't sure if I wanted to give these books 5 stars or 1 star. It took the twisted mind of Marissa Honeycutt to come up with something so cruel and truly stomach turning and at the same time keep me reading. I will never recommend this book to anyone for fear that they will realize I read something so ...more

Let me summarize what I thought about the books first.

Enslaved and Entwined is not something that I adore. I gave two stars to those but it’s not that bad either. I want to know what happened but the incidents while the story develops, is crazy and I am so mad. But remind you, 2 stars in Goodreads is “it’s okay”. So, not a bad rating for those two.

Embraced, I am full of emotion while reading this. I am intrigued about what will happen and crazily full of joy

This series, GAH! Really twisted yet quite addicting..
Louise Seraphim Reviews

It's like the worst thing ever, when you have one of your most eagerly anticipated releases of the year so far, and you can't actually start reading yet. So it sits there taunting you, with all it's information and reveals. So yes, I was desperate to get stuck in to the fourth part of Anna's story.

In this part, the story starts 2 years on from the end of Embraced. Anna has spent the whole of the 2 years pretty much out of it. The time has slipped by, and Anna hasn't even noti

I was lucky to read an ARC of Book 4 and all I can say is Marissa Honeycutt is killing me a slow death This Series is really not for the faint hearted they just get darker and darker with every book just when you think it can't get any more darker BAM! Its gets much worse.

FIVE STARS ~ Highly recommend this series for lovers who are not afraid of the darker side, the very dark side !!!

Ensnared (The Life of Anna #4) is amazing, everything I love about this series and more is provided in part 4, evil, twisted , shocking, limits are pushed and pushed.

Anna is finely waking up from her drug induced trance she has been under for the past two years, since her soul mate Alex was killed, although has he really gone ????. Anna seems to have accepted the life given to her by

This is not a stand-alone novel. This is the fourth of five novels that tell Anna’s story.

Life has not been kind to Anna. Everything that she has ever loved is taken from her. Her family, her friends, her husband and any place she ever thought to call home is gone. All of this is the doing of one man. Devin Anderson. For as long as Anna can remember Devin has been a fixture in her life. He started as a loving uncle type that she could look up to as a young girl. When she lost her pare

These books are so difficult to review, I want to go in to details about the story - but I don't want to give anything away!

This book starts 2 years after Embraced ends.
Anna hasn't really been living, instead she's just starting to wake from her drug coma. (If you read book 3, you know why) She has no real recollection of the past 2 years of her life.
Ensnared is the story of Anna transitioning from Alex's to Devin's possessi

Wow! It's funny thinking back to my first review of Book 1 where I so blindly (and ignorantly) wished there had been more of a 'dark' element to the book, since the warnings were so implicit. Marissa assured me that my darkness would arrive in Book 2. Holy hell, did it ever?! Then came Book 3...BAM! And, now, Book 4...well, my little dark heart can't take much more. I am cautiously optimistic that Anna will get her HEA, however, there is just one twist that I cannot accept: Alex cannot be dead; ...more
I have always loved Marissa's stories from the first time I got sample and the writing this book has really stepped up her writing style to another level. I have always been impressed by her skills but they are growing and it is impressive. This original, creative and well crafted story is riveting.

Things are changing for Anna. Not all changes are for the better and not all are for the worse. This is a time of transition and Anna handles some of it well and some she stumbles through in her charm

Spoiler alert... dont read this review if you havent read the book...

About halfway through this book, I thought I was going to have to stop and take a break because of how dark and depraved it was... how disturbed I was over it... but now - Hopes of Alex, the fact that Anna has finally broken away from Devin at least for a bit... and unleashed her own inner beast makes me anxious to pick up the last book of the series! Well done, I'm a sick puppy because I'm desensitized to the death of characte

I have to say this series is extremely dark and depraved - as the warning clearly states. I have continued reading because I just want to see Anna & Alex finally succeed. High 5 to Ian who did the right thing and a massive FUCK YOU to Devin who is a prick of mammoth proportions.
I need this final book asap !!!

I loved this story and I am dying for the final book in the series, but this one felt like the much-needed transitional part of Anna’s life. While I wasn’t captivated and glued to each and every page, the ending in book four had me more torn up than any of the others in this series. So go in knowing that you won’t turn the first page and be thinking life is going to go on without me while I read this book, instead absorb this, and be grateful for the break in the drama and then buckle up for the ...more

While I was reading Ensnared The Life of Anna #4 towards the end of the book I started feeling this anxiety because I just knew there was going to be a cliffhanger and guess what I was right there is. I knew there had to be because this is the next to the last book in this series.

I am a huge fan of Marissa Honeycutt's! This book is so twisted and evil in a good way. Make sure you read the warning below because this book and series is not for the faint of heart! Devin is a Devil and he owns Anna

Okay so first of all I am not a good writer but I have to get this of my chest.

I read this book in 3 hours with some coffee breaks in between because I could not stop. This one broke my heart not kidding you, the way Anna was broken, then healed , broken again.. and it keeps going, the girl can't seem to catch a break and live a happy live.

I am also very glad that Alex still had a part in the story (view spoiler)

Holy crap. Okay. I am not sure where to even begin! This book definitely lives up to the title. Marissa has Ensnared me into this series!

We pick up with Anna two years later, she is drugged and still missing Alex. She presumes he is dead and cannot deal with her dreams of him and so the TV or being drugged is her solution. Devin has only been using her for the Spring Gathering when she gives him her offerings, and he has decided that she is not useful to him so he cuts off the drugs and forces A

Fifty Romances of Anna

That's what it should be called because that's all these books are about, her constant failed romances with men she meets through Devin or her dance class. I know this isn't a love story but I can not at all be convinced of any claim of love a character proclaims in the book. not even when Anna says it. The guys are quick to spend every waking moment with her and show her that she is a person who has feelings and all that but then they later get fed up with her and act mean

I lose interest in series easy. Very easy.

To keep me going through book#3 and jumping into #4… Yep! I said 4 (and I really hope there would be no surprises and it Ends at book#5) HELL! Kudos to the author!

I am not talking about short series like Filthy, which one can read in 1 hour.

I am talking about a book around 400 pages.

Devin, The Devil went an extra mile in this book and became the most evil villain I can remember.

This is really dark, sick, twisted a
