Marie James is a new to me author but I'll definitely be checking out her back list after reading this one.
SINdicate is BT Urruela fan fiction. That's what caught my interest initially, from what we see he's an amazing person who's overcome so much personally and continues to give back, who wouldn't want to read something loosely based on him?

BT Urruela is an Army vet, personal trainer and is taking acting classes. That's where he meets Aviana. He's attracted to her and thinks maybe they could

“I'm a smartass, been this way my entire life. Pretty said when I can't even turn it off in the face of adversity."

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, pain, anger, sadness, secrets, kidnapping, and heartbreak.

This is Aviana and BT’s story. Aviana is in the same acting class as BT. But she keeps to herself. She has learned from her past to stay under the radar. Even that does not keep her safe. When she is taken she wonders if it’s the end. BT wants Aviana even if she keeps to herself. He gets one date but when she runs can he get her to come back to him? When she is taken he tr

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review. I loved this story! It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. Marie has to be one of the best at writing in dual points of view. Like all her other stories this was was written extremely well and captivated me from the very beginning. She is and will always be an automatic one click author for me and I look forward to reading more from her.

This is book 1.5 in the series. The first few book in the series all overlap at certain parts. Some more than others. I think they are better read in order because of this. In this book Cerberus MC helps but isn’t the main characters in the book. This book is a fan fiction book about BT Uruella. In the book he is taking acting classes with a girl named Aviana. They have a connection but Avianna has her reservations about getting involved with anyone. When she doesn’t show up for class for a few ...more

I received and voluntary reviewed a copy of this book. This book was read and reviewed by Stacy Aube for Cutting Muse Blog Review.

This is the first time I've read a book that the cover model is also the main character, I love it. A wonderfully written story that kept me on edge. Characters were perfection.

I had absolutely no clue who BT Urruela was before reading this. I was skeptical because it was marked as fanfiction, and I don't even know who this guy is. My first thought, was that he was a fictional character from a TV series or book. NOPE, he is a completely awesome, real life, man.
I am impressed. And now a fan.

This was an amazing short story! It helps clear up questions after reading the Cerberus MC series also written by Marie James. BT is insanely hot and heroic in this book. I definitely recommend reading the at least the first two books or the Cerberus series before reading this one as it may have a few spoilers. You won't be disappointed! ...more
Jun 08, 2020 rated it did not like it
This was an incredibly random book in the middle of the series. Very little involving the MC and introducing characters that we've never heard of. Looking at some of the comments this us some kind of fan fiction of a real person which is fair enough but it should maybe be a spin-off rather than dumped in the middle of the series. It just made things very confusing. ...more

4 Star Review by Kristie K.

I have a confession to make....until I heard about this book, I had no idea who BT Urruela was. As soon as I learned this was a BT Urruela fan-fiction novel, I had to see who this person was. So, I did what any modern day woman with a healthy curiosity would do....I Googled. Yep. I blew up my search engines looking for information on this man. Can you guess what I found? Well, yes...I did find dozens and dozens of pictures of a totally built, a

As with everything that Marie James writes, I loved this book! It wasn't your basic HEA, although of course it is a HEA. This book had be from the name BT! I've always been a fan of his work online and offline. He's an amazing man and an incredible role model. Having him as the hero in this book just did it for me before I even opened it. Knowing his face so well and his online personality so well it was incredibly easy to picture him doing everything and anything he did in this story.

Ooooh I love a good thriller book with a touch of romance and suspense and this one does not disappoint. It has twists and turns galore and takes you on a real roller coaster of emotions. I devoured this book in 2 days and that’s saying something for me as I’m quite a slow reader.

From a fantastic author the end result could only be a fantastic book. Marie James once again you managed to surprise me.
When I finished reading SINdicate what I thought was that I had read another fantastic book to join to my collection. The way Marie James writes can captivate us from the first sentence.
This book turns towards Aviana and BT, the whole book is told but their point of views and each chapter we know a little more of their lives, fears and goals.
Aviana has an abusive and neglectfu
Utterly Captivating!!!

BT Urruela was an actor, an author, an Army veteran who lost a limb in the service and a personal trainer. He met Aviana in his acting class, he liked her. BT had been asking Aviana out for some time now but she never gave in until he asked one last time and she gave him the answer he'd been hoping to hear.

Aviana Maguire was a shy beautiful woman who wanted to go into sports medecine but she could only afford to go to acting classes. She'd sworn off dating after she saw the

This is the first time that I have read fan-fiction and it was the first introduction to the veteran/writer/cover model/motivational speaker BT Urruela, so I was not quite sure what to expect. Except ...I did know that I have read all of MJ's other works, loved them, and that the blurb sounds amazing.

Per usual the writing was very enjoyable, multi-faceted, the characters well developed, and the scenes very visual. One of the things I love about all of the books from MJ is that when I read them t

SINdicate is another winner by Mari James!
The story of Sindicate revolves around BT Urrela and Aviana Maguire.
BT and Avi are partners in an acting class. He has been flirting with her and asking her out but since she doesn’t date, she always turns him down. At this point in her life she doesn’t want a commitment and he is a commitment guy. She finally says yes and they have a nice dinner at his place. Using the pretense of practicing love scenes they begin to kiss. As Avi wants to take it furth

This author continues to blow me away with every new book of hers I get my hands on. I didn't really know what to expect going into SINdicate as I have never read any fanfiction prior to this. I've heard of BT from the different reader groups I'm a part of, but after reading this it has me wondering if there is any way for the real man to be even half as awesome as the written version of him, and if so he's pretty darn fantastic.

In this story our hero BT finally gets the elusive but intriguing A

This is the second book I've read from Marie James and they just keep getting better. We start off this one with BT and Aviana who are friends in their acting class. Avi has a strong opinion of how she wants her life to be and being with a man is not something she wants. She is all for having fun but wants nothing to do with a relationship. Her father left her when she was very young. Then you have BT who is a veteran just trying to get though life. He sets his sights on Avi but she rebuffs him ...more

I was provided an ARC by the Author in exchange for an honest review.

I just finished SINdicate and OMHG was it a fantastic book. The slow burn of the love the story combined with the danger involved make for a story that is as hot as the guy who inspired the tale.

The story opens with BT trying very hard to act on his interest in Aviana, a fellow student in the acting class he is taking. Aviana, while very interested in BT is not interested in a relationship with any man due to the very serious t

What is not to love about BT Urrela? I knew when I saw that this was a fan fic about him I had to read it! Plus I have read other Marie James books and knew I wouldn’t be disappointed. I wasn’t! Well, except the part with altering BT’s appearance…yes it had to be done but, but…

I kind of liked how Aviana didn’t just fall for BT right off the bat….yeah, I couldn’t be that strong… but anyway… once Aviana catches his eye he knows tha

Marie James is a new author to me. She wrote this book as a fan-fiction to BT Urruela. During this entire book, I kept picturing him through out the whole thing. She truly captured the essence of BT and gentleman/military mannerisms.

Aviana is college student where she is taking an acting class. She was dealt a pretty bad hand when it came to family and her life, so she is trying to make something for herself.

BT is ex military, a trainer, and an all alpha man. He attends the same acting class a

He meets super-shy Aviana in his acting class and non-stop asked her out until she finally gave in.
