Monsters are real. And they have their own version of the world. I should know, I was kidnapped by one. Dragged down into the pits of their hell. Changed. Altered. Forced to do anything to survive.

I haven’t read a dark/captive romance in a while, I’ve been on my own little cloud of fluffy sweet romances and books that give me the feels. When I saw KI Lynn was writing something a little darker, I jumped on board! I love her writing and I was so excited to read Six. Dark, viol

Wow! This was my first book by this author, but for sure it won’t be my last because she totally blew me away with this thrilling, addictive read. In some way, 'Six' was like nothing I’ve read before. It was a great blend of suspense, action, steam and even a pinch of entertaining dark humor. Now, I have to say I really liked the premise, it was something new, intriguing and in my humble opinion it was done really well . The story was fast paced, pretty intense at times and for a captiv
Well, this book was certainly different! If you're looking for a sweet, heartwarming story, this isn't it. Likewise, if you're in the mood for a tortured hero with darker urges that has redeeming qualities, keep looking. You won't find any rainbows or unicorns here.

Paisley is a technician, working in the medical examiner's office. After a steamy one night stand, she finds herself staring down the barrel of a gun. She's taken hostage by the very same man that she'd spent the previous night with.
4 Stars

I wanted something fun, something suspenseful with a movie-worthy plot. And my wish came true.

If you decide to give this book a try, get ready for: lots of action, hot as sin hitmen, a kick ass and mouthy heroine, a cold and ruthless hero, moments of laugh and some use-me-and-abuse-me shit hot scenes. Just don’t expect flowery stuff or sugary “I love yous” because you won’t find them here.

"Six was not a nice guy. Six was a monster."

SIX is a stunning dark and delicious stand-alone romance by the crazy talented K.I. Lynn. From the first word to the last, every moment is charged with action, intrigue, and suspense.

I say courage because I have been so disappointed in the MF genre that I have given up loads of hope that I will find

Stop reading here if you have delicate eyes because this review will not be a nice one.

I chose to read Six because I had actually enjoyed this authors previous series Breach which was equally a Dark Romance/Erotica but which - if not taken too seriously - was quite entertaining. Guilty pleasures and all that. And there, I don't even like CR Dark Romance/Erotica but the Breach series had something more to offer; a certain kind of inner conflict that both MCs go through that

I really liked this book. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time, trying to figure out what was going to happen next and who else was going to die.

Paisley is a smart and sarcastic woman who becomes the pawn in a plot beyond her control. She is kidnapped and held captive by a sociopathic secret government agent, Six, who promises to kill her when his job is done. Seriously. He keeps reminding her throughout the story that he's got a bullet with her name on it. I lost count of the many times

"I'm not a character from a romance novel."

This dude is pure sociopath, and there's no rainbow around the FMC protecting her from his lack of empathy. So, just be warned that this is not a case of a bad guy doing bad things to everyone but the FMC. No. He's just a mofo >.<

What can I say about KI Lynn and her books that I haven’t already said a million times? When the blurb for Six was announced, I was hooked. I am a sucker for the jerk-asshole heroes that aren’t really great guys. I don’t need my heroes to slay dragons, I just need them to be memorable and hot. And Six. He was everlasting and hot as fuck. Especially with that gun in his hand.

I bloody loved this one, it was one of those stories that has you on the edge of your seat with your heart pumping from beginning to end. It's no secret that I like to read a dark romance from time to time, so when I discovered that K.I Lynn was writing a captive story, I knew I was going to be jumping all over it the moment I could get my greedy little hands on it.

Paisley is an intelligent, sassy, and feisty woman who finds herself caught up in the most surreal circumstances -

I don't know where to start with this one. I LOVED it from start to finish. The plot was AWESOME and highly entertaining. It was just like reading an action movie.

I ADORED Paisley (Lacey), she was feisty and strong in the face of all she had to endure. Six was, well Six was difficult. I thought he was HOT as hell in a twisted psychotic type of way, but a lot of his actions pushed me past what I feel comfortable with.

This is by far the best twisted, dark, thriller romances I have ever read.
Six is a true sociopath. I love and appreciate that the author keeps him true to character. He is who he is, and just because this a romance novel doesn't mean he has to loose his wickedness.

Please K.I. Lynn makes this a series!! I want more!

Why did we read this book?

Ok, first, we analyse.
Everything about it just gave out good vibes;
1. The Title - one word only but VERY effective.
2. The Cover - persuading.
3. The Blurb - VERY intriguing.
4. GRs ratings and readers reviews - EXTREMELY impressive.

All these together, I was sold.

This book put a smile on my face, a hand down my pants, and giggle-snort out my nose. I loved loved loved the dark humor. Dark Romance with a kick of laughter and twisted charm. Think "The Bourne Identity," but 100 times hotter. I'm a huge fan of action packed movies, this story was just that, like a sexed-up action packed movie, I couldn't stop reading.

This was my first book by K.I. Lynn and I absolutely loved every minute of it. It was thrilling, crazy, erotic, suspenseful and the action just didn't stop. This is not your typical hostage/captive story and there is no instant love or brutality between Paisley and her captor, Six. There is a strong sexual attraction between the two that develops in intensity over time and just doesn't let up.

Oh my god, I can't believe I loved this book as much as I did!

The H, Six, is the most fucked up, emotionless, ruthless killer ever! Talk about a psychopath! And I freaking loved him! So many things in this book went so far over the line of what I can handle. Six did so many unacceptable, inexcusable and horrible things to the heroine, which would normally make me DNF a book. So why didn't I??

I was kidnapped by a monster. Dragged down into the pits of their hell. Changed. Altered. Forced to do anything to survive.

I like reading dark stories with a captive heroine falling for her captor. This had the same cliche ending, but held more suspense that was not all directed to the captive.

Six by K. I. Lynn is just one huge wtf. Not in a bad way but in the best way possible. It kept me on edge willing to learn what will be next. Ant the ending - it just completely blew my mind.

It all started with a party, grabby collegues and the front zipper dress that was out od use for so long. One night stand and meeting Six completely change

Ok, let's admit it: "Six" will probably be remembered as the biggest let down I had this year.

I barely read the blurb, before I bought it. Everything about it just gave out good vibrations; I loved the cover, felt intrigued by its title, am enjoying the "Romantic Suspense" genre a lot, lately.
Add to that a string of extremely good ratings and I was in.

The beginning of the book is amazing: Paisley, a lab technician, is a smart young woman
