Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Unfortunately, I was a little lost through Seized by Seduction. After reading the book and really enjoying the ending, I went back to check and saw that this was the third book in The Protectors Series. Even though this is a stand-alone book, I seriously feel that, in order to keep up with all the characters and what they mean to each other, you have to read Forged In Desire.

I was a little confused throughout the story. Quasar and Randi are the major characters in the book but there are a lo

After reading the first book I was on the fence reading this one. I liked Quasar and Randi but everything regarding their relationship happened way too fast. It seems like the common trend with this author. All the couples fall head over heels in love in record time. I prefer a slower burn so this way I can feel the connection. I wish we had more character development. You can only read how much the male lead wants to have sex with the female lead so many times. Quasar has a strained relationshi ...more

Title: Seized By Seduction
Author: Brenda Jackson
Genre: Crime, Suspense
Rating: 3.5/5

The blurb alone had me excited to read this and it didn't disappoint I was pulled in straight from the start. Jackson's style of writing to me was like a comfortable pair of slippers it made me just want to sit back and relax which I did whilst reading the book in one sitting.

There was danger and violence with a healthy dose of sexual chemistry, a good storyline wit

got this from my local library and its still 5 stars after 2nd re-read. i absolutely love the idea of Dr Randi being a psychic. using her psychic powers to help the FBI solve cases makes the read even an interesting one and her pairing up with Quasar was just even more powerful. storyline was awesome and their chemistry was already present since the 1st page. highly recommended!

Very good book with an excellent blend of romance and suspense. Quasar is one of the ex-con bodyguards introduced in the first book, Forged in Desire. Randi is a psychic investigator who also had a big part in the conclusion of that book. She and Quasar had seen each other during that part of the book, with a definite surge of attraction and connection bursting forth. That shared look consumed them both until they were finally able to meet a few months later. By this time, Randi's psychic gift h ...more

Seized by Seduction is a beautifully crafted tale, filled with breathtaking imagery of each scene as the story unfolds. From the moments with family and friends to the growing attraction between the protagonists, to the crime scenes and moments of threat and danger each setting is described in such detail it is easy to picture them in your mind and you get a feeling like you are right there with the characters.
The main focus of the story is the developing relationship between Quasar Patterson an

One look across a crime scene changes everything for Quasar and Randi. I loved this chemistry between them pulling them together. I really loved that Brenda created such a strong woman in Randi. Not only with her special powers, but she is brave and sassy and smart. LOVE that she is such a match for Quasar. He isn't looking for something more than just a physical connection, but he can't deny that there is more for them. He resists or tries to anyway. They are sizzling hot together. I loved that ...more

Page turner!

Quasar and Randi were destined to be mates, but they had to earn each other's love. Ms. Jackson has again written a page turner. I couldn't put this book down for wanting to know who the killer and their accomplices were. The way the author revealed all was done with such fantastic story / plot development. Am loving this spin off series and can't wait to read Stonewalls story.

I actually listened to the audio of this book and anything Ron reads I'm going to be listening to, my gawd that man's voice is everything. Just amazing.

I absolutely loved this one. Quasar was one of my favorite guys from the trio once we were introduced to them. He's funny and hell bent on making a life for himself that doesn't diminish his past but also isn't built around it either. Having made changes while in prison and having created the beginni

This, book 2 of Jackson’s ‘The Protectors’ series is so much better than book 1. The writing is better, more fluid and the dialogue actually uses contractions - thanks for that. I still think there’re some word choices that puts pretentious on an entire new level but overall - way better.

I liked Quasar a whole lot better than I liked Lamar ‘Striker’ from the first book. There's a significant amount of interaction between the three friends and co-workers. I think it would be okay to read as a sta

n Seized by Seduction, Brenda Jackson continues the protector series. We get to know Quasar Patterson and psychic investigator, Dr. Randi Fuller.

So I’m definitely late to the party but I didn’t realize that we knew Randi until we met her sister Haywood. I literally screamed, “wait a minute! Your parents were one of Brenda Jackson’s earliest couples.”

What I liked: while the chemistry was there between these two, I have to admit that the romance took a back seat a few times in this book for me. I

I had a difficult time in the first part of the book as all of Randi’s extended family overwhelmed me. In fact, I set the book aside for awhile. But once I got past trying to remember people and relationships and concentrated on Randi and Quasar, I was hooked on the story.

Dr. Randi Fuller is a renowned psychic investigator who used to work for the FBI and still has ties to the FBI. Quasar Patterson is an ex-con turned bodyguard. When their paths cross at a crime scene, they both feel the strong

Quasar Patterson is a handsome man who has been hurt by his family and the only woman he thought he could love. Dr Randi Fuller is a tough, no nonsense woman who has a 5th Degree black belt. In addition she is a psychic extraordinaire. When she sees Quasar, she remembers him and the heat between them is intense. Quasar is drawn to her like no other woman he has ever known. However, theirs is a complicated story.

Brenda Jackson's latest romance brings to life Quasar Patterson and Dr. Randi Fuller. Their story is amazing and you will not be able to put it down.

From the first time Quasar saw Randi at a crime scene, he knew he had to see her again. That opportunity comes when he is in Washington D.C. on duty. He meets her again and the two spend some wonderful time together. Randi is a psychic investigator. She can see danger but only for others not for herself. And it is for this reason that Quasar determ

Seized by Seduction was an incredible story. Quasar Patterson was a sexy, strong man who'd lived his life with some deep hurt that no one should ever have to endure. Family hurt can be the worse hurt. Thanks to some friends who became his real family he's been able to move on in every area of his life except one.

It's good -- sexy and thrilling.

I didn't love it as much as the Grangers series. I'm a bit meh about the whole destined to be together thing (according to Randi's psychic grandmother), and the whole thing about Randi being psychic except when it came to herself just seemed convenient (so she doesn't sense the dangers to herself, but luckily Quasar can, coz they're the OTP). The mystery was pretty obvious even before the big reveals, which was disappointing mostly because my hopes were raised so

I would give this 3.5 stars. Quasar and Randi were more interesting in that the scenes revolving around the investigation. The scenes with them as a couple were pretty boring. I skimmed through a number of the sex scenes. There was no build up of tension, no chemistry, etc. I'm not sure what was missing, but something was.

I got a much better sense of who Randi was than I did Quasar. The investigation, Quasar's family situation, Randi's psychic abilities, etc., and almost everything else was more

The First story, Forged in Desire, you come across Quasar Patterson and Dr. Randi Fuller, where their eyes meet across the crime scene tape. Quasar is one of the Protectors, a small group of bodyguards where actually first met in prison serving time for crimes they didn't commit.

I had to keep reading this book I could not put it down. Quasar Patterson looked at Dr. Randi Fuller at the first time at a crime scene and the attention and pull to get to know this woman was so intoxicating. Randi Fuller knew he was the one because a ancestor told her she would know. However cupid's arrow had to touch Quasar Patterson's heart. One of the books out of the Protectors triology doesn't steer you wrong. Yes, it was long and some of it was redundant however it was suspenseful, fast ...more

Quay can protect me any day, but he must take down his hair first!!! I throughly enjoyed this new installment in the protector series. Wow wow wow, so Mrs. Brenda you certainly brought the spice. I'm sure having special powers such as Dr. Fuller's is not easy but she didn't back down or take any crap off of anyone including Quay. Quay's family dynamics is something to be acquired, but his strong will and resilience serves him well. I love the attraction and chemistry they shared, it al

Quasar and Randi fantastic. Randi's great grandmother predicted that when Randi first saw her forever love he would be dressed in black. But first Randi must stop a gang war in California, avoid getting killed, help the FBI catch the mole in their department, and deal with the hottest sexy man alive. Quasar is in LA to protect Randi but to also deal with his controlling Father and bullying Brother. I think this book was hotter than the first book. To the author please keep this series go

Absolutely loved this book. Quasar and Randi's love story is one filled with undeniable chemistry, mystery, action and pure romance. This couple's journey started out on the basis of pure lust and turned into something long-lasting. Granted they had to battle the dangers of her chosen LA assignment, his conniving relatives (father and brother), and overcoming their fears about truly opening up their hearts to one another.

Meh. Bodyguard/protectee love story.
I struggled to get through this one. I'm not a big fan of "I know you are my only true love and I will live alone if this doesn't work". The psychic parts were alternately done well or poorly. The hero was kind of a dick several times, but, of course, she forgave him because she knew he was her destiny. The heat between the two main characters was forced at best.
Maybe it was dealing with stuff in my real life, but this book took me days to slog through. I'm no

This book was mediocre mainly because the heroine is so dull. I don't know if she's underwritten or just written without much uniqueness beyond her psychic skills and certainly little spunk. She's just so vanilla in personality I felt bored. It's particularly bad when the heroine and hero go on their first date. What an absolute drag. I was tempted to DNR. I've never been so bored with a BJ book or character before. But she's so prolific in her material and not all things can be perfect.

Quasar and Randi met in Forged in Desire and meet once again in this book -- the instant attraction is overwhelming. Even better, Randi's psychic grandmother has foretold Randi and Quasar will have a future together.
