Transformed: Paris is a fairly simple spy story based around the migration and terrorist issues facing Europe today, and an American couple’s attempts to foil a neo-Nazi bomb plot. Where it differs from the norm is the gender and sexual preferences of the lead characters. All this is delivered in a quirky and mildly comical style.

I enjoyed the descriptions of Paris and the lifestyles of the characters, although it seemed to me that they were living more in the 1950s instead of the early 21st Cen

Transformed: Paris is the second quirky little thriller from Suzanne Falter & Jack Harvey, featuring a romance between a transgender man and his dominatrix girlfriend. It is an unusual sort of story, playing on tensions of both the political and fetish variety, but it is a lot of fun - even when it is trying to decide whether to rip out our hearts or leave them lodged firmly in our throats!

This time around, the action moves from San Francisco to Paris, with Charley and Electra a couple in turmoi

I read a lot of the reviews for the previous book that claimed this author was not LGBTQ+ friendly and disagreed. This time, however... I enjoyed the story but I feel like being pansexual is portrayed as bring unable to be monogamous. That is a dangerous and FLASE stereotype even within the LGBTQ+ community.
Aside from that, this is a story that finds most of it's home by poking fun at serious subjects- terrorism, racism,sexism, rape, kidnapping, etc. It is not for the easily offended. Thankfull

Not a bad book...definitely a bit's a continuation of the first Transformed book, where it takes Charley and Electra to Paris to stop a terrorist plot.

It was an easy read. To me this is light reading as I typically read more legal thrillers but it's a good book.

This is the second Transformed novel. We find transman Charley and his Society Dom girlfriend, Electra, on their way to Paris, where Charley will be working with the French police to stop a bombing.

Who joins a spy agency when they are in their 50's. Because she has not done the training, she is to have no part in Charley's work. When Elec ...more

*this book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review*

Basically, if you liked the first one, you'll like this one too.

We're back with our transman Charley, and his dom girlfriend Electra fighting crime.... in Paris. The main thing I loved about the first book that transferred to this one as well was the atmosphere. You could tell that the authors really loved San Francisco and mentioned little things about the food/culture/area. If you h

I love a good spy story, and this one was all the better for the fact that it was set in Paris. The setting was beautifully described and, though I've never actually been there, I really did feel as if I could completely envision Charley and Electra strolling through the streets of the city. The characters, for the most part, were realistic and easy to connect with, and I greatly enjoyed the mystery element. From time to time, I did find myself using Google to help with random vocabulary and plo ...more

Disclaimer: I received an e-copy of this book on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The two main characters of this story are Charley, a pansexual, polyamorous transman, and his girlfriend Electra, a dominatrix. Charley has been sent to Paris on a mission. A group of Neo Nazis apparently plan to plant bombs all over the city, but so far not enough proof has been found. In between all of this Charley also has to deal with trouble in paradise. After he suggests a polyamorous relationship,

I have received the book from the authors in exchange for a fair review.

Story starts off with transman Charley MacElroy and Electra going to Paris, meanwhile there is a plot of plant dirty bombs around Paris, to threaten the government into kicking out the migrants. Main thing is that, you already know who the bad guys are, the heroes do not. Top that off with Charley and Electra having relationship problems because of the topic of polyamory.

I do not mind this book, it is easy to read despite

Nice continuation of an interesting series.

First I have to say that there have been some changes going on in this series: The covers have been redone (great decision) and the title has been changed. Although it seems to not be set in stone? Because the title varies on NetGalley and Goodreads. May cause confusion. But on to the book itself.

It reminded me a little of Transformed: San Francisco to be honest. You probably shouldn't read those two without some time in between.

The two main characters are Charley, a Transgender spy, and his girlfriend, Electra, a dominatrix. Charley has been sent on an assignment to Paris, France to help break up a plan for planting dirty bombs all over Paris. Of course, Electra is not one to sit on the side lines and immerses herself into the thick of things once she arrives in Paris with Charley. The reader instantly falls in love with these two characters because of how they interact with each other. Almost immediately, you are intr ...more

Transformed Paris by both Suzanne Falter & Jack Harvey is definitely for adults only due the amount of adult content. Those you love erotica's will definitely enjoy this read more than those who don't read eroticas. Other than those issues, I have to say that the writers did an excellent job portraying their characters. The scenes of Paris were great. A famous city that readers can almost see, smell, and hear through the words on the pages. There's plenty of action, travel, and adventure going o ...more

Having read and enjoyed the previous 'Transformed ' book, I looked forward to reading this. Would I enjoy this as well? Would the characters still be fascinating? Yes on both counts.
Charley (CIA operative) who is also a transman and his lover Electra who is also a dominatrix have split after Electra accuses Charley of being unfaithful but are missing each other. The trouble is Charlie is in Paris chasing neo Nazis who may be planting dirty bombs, Electra is also there and manages to get involve

A disconcerting, peculiar and quintessential spy story tailored to portray the social and political climate we live in. The reader requires an open-mind before indulging in the tale. It covers transgender sexual partnership through to the infiltration of an underground group with intentions of setting 6 bomb explosions around Paris. It is a race against time to identifying the bombs’ location and when the planned explosions were to take place. Our hero and heroine; Charley and Electra find t

I'm a bit in two minds about certain aspects of this book. Not because it's bad, but because I'm not sure how much the relationship element adds to the story. In fact, I think at some points it was a bit distracting.

For the most part though, I liked Charley and Electra, although there were points when I just wanted to shake Charley, because he just dissolved into a bit of a wuss. But I particularly liked Electra's interactions with the other characters, and the unfolding of the investigation par

I liked the lead characters and learning more about them in this second book of the series. The story was well developed and had lots of action and twists. I would give it 4 stars, but it didn't move as quickly for me as the first book,so for that reason I gave it 3 stars. ...more
