Daniel Schwartz never meant to uncover the apocalypse, unfortunately for her that’s exactly what happened. Yet while it’s clear to the Kiwi hacktivist what she should do; cover it back up and get completely smashed, the rest of the world doesn’t agree. A shady corporation places her in a beachside prison where they promise to hold her until she agrees to talk. Dani would b ...more

➦If you tripped, fell and hurt one of your limbs (or anything, for that matter) and your reaction was this

Then you would exactly like the heroine of this story. I'm not going to discuss why her name is Daniel. It wasn't as much weird as it was confusing.

➦Daniel doesn't feel pain. There's something screwy with her brain. Instead of agony she experiences crazy fits of laughter and I could totally see how this could be uncomfortable to live with. lol Anywhoooo.

➦She's also some kind of a computer

I vividly recall when author Skye Warren raved about this book Taunt and I wondered what the hype was all about. The verdict? Taunt was fucking fantastic in the wackiest way imaginable. I would bet that this book is not for all, but this author does it for me. The characters were real, flawed and out of their mind nuts. This storyline was unique, and had me wondering where this author dreamed up this plot. My only criticism is that this is a long ass book and I found it a litt

First of all, this was not what I expected. It was more. Daniel is unapologetic in her way of being and that's what makes her all the more likeable. She is being guarded by three sexy men, John, Colt, and Seb. Though they try to resist her charms, she wiggles right on into their hearts anyways. She is hilarious in her dealings sometimes skirting the edge of too much. The plot was very interesting and unique. Everything from Daniel's name and special ability, to what she has discovered and who hi ...more

WELL WELL WELL, what a fabulous little read this book turned out to be. When I was approached to read/review this ARC I wasn't 100% sure. The apocalypse, hackers, bio-terrorists, are not usually my thing, but the blurb intrigued me. So I decided to step outside my box and give it a go, and man am I glad that I did!


This had an intriguing, well-paced (for the most part), original plot. It had interesting and well developed (for the most part) characters. It had twists and turns. It had sexy mena

I recently read my first book by Eve Dangerfield and instantly needed more of her. Taunt intrigued me the most and I was really excited to get more sexiness from this author. Unfortunately that was almost the only thing I liked from this story.

The premise of a heroine being held by three ex-military men had me sitting right up and saying yes, please. And throughout the book I really liked that we got to see how she interacted with all of them and they each had

Recommends it for: Anyone who enjoys erotica and great stories.
Taunt is the very first erotica book I’ve read and I admit I find it hard to fall in love with the story in the beginning.

For starters, I’m blown away by the blunt reaction and daring, flirtatious conversation where the female main character, Daniel (yep, she’s a badass GIRL with a dude’s name), is involved. She has such a sharp tongue and isn’t fazed by whatever people throw back at her. Truth to be told, I do love that about her afterward. Even though I’m not used to all those slangs, I do app

Daniel and her best friend are hiding in Paris. They discovered something awful about the future on our planet. After her miserable friend decides to abandon her, Daniel runs in London. She is a free spirit, a free and independent woman who lives her life how she pleases. She is so crazy, in the good and funny way. Not to mention, Hot and Sexy as hell.

Wild, crazy and adrenaline pumping describes this unexpected gem. Full disclosure, Ms. Dangerfield contacted me and asked if I would take a look at her book. I recently read a sweet kinky story by her and eagerly agreed. What I didn't expect was to be blown out of the water with this exciting new series. The premise of this story is unconventional and threw me off. I thought it was going to be a sexy ménage and perhaps a little bit of a suspense. Instead, I'm pulled into an end of the world scen ...more

Five stars and a standing ovation!

Taunt begins with the end of the world clearly in sight. Heroine Daniel (that’s how she spells it) is a genius eco-terrorist outrunning the impending apocalypse by partying her way through Europe, pursued by a shady organization she may or may not have pissed off. Daniel is uninhibited, unapologetic, and more fun than anyone you’ve met: she is what a lot of women might be without self-doubt or shame. By the time she’s googling how to deal with the symptoms of sn

Sweet lord almighty, what an awesome book. Brilliant story line. Page melting sexiness. The entire plot took me by surprise. Eve Dangerfield has a new fan.

Don't let the "End of the World" tags deter you. This isn't an apocalyptic novel. It's really smart erotica, with a quirky, badass heroine and three unique, lovable, ex-military heroes. Absolutely spellbinding.

4 stars! This is a good book! It is so different than anything I have read recently, in a great way. This is a menage romance, but also has a bit of a futuristic/dystopian theme. This is the story of Daniel, a young woman who works for a grassroots, eco-terrorist organization. While working for her organization and doing research on the polar ice caps, she discovers something really terrible by accident - (view spoiler) ...more

I absolutely loved this story and found that once I started it I couldn’t stop. Taunt is so different to any other book that I read that I didn’t know what to expect from it.

Holy Smokes, what a book. Taunt by Eve Dangerfield was one of those books that just blew my socks off. You know when you read a book that makes you so darn happy and excited at the same time, well, Taunt was that book that really that had my toe curling, tongue tied and seriously in a frenzy. I was so high about the book. Taunt consumed me to the brink. That book was a guilty pleasure that totally had me hooked from the first page to the last page.

I pick up this because it is an erotic thriller and the premise that this is an end of the world novel, or not. You be the one to judge.

And that is one thing my mind kind of latch on so I expected technicalities and jargons and terms that would make me excited and giddy and my blood to rush in anticipation. I was thrilled to discover secrets and be frustrated with suspense. But it wasn’t something I expected. It was so much more in a good way, and less in some.

Trust me when I tell you you've never read a story quite like this one.

This book is so unlike anything I've read before. I was so excited to give this book a shot because the plot is so unique. First of all, who knew the end of the world could be so damn hot. Like really fucking hot. John, Seb, and Colt were the perfect balance of alpha, sexy, mean, and caring. I'd be glad to have just one of them let al

Thoughts while reading Taunt:
OMG, did she just say that?
I can't believe he just did that.
That's hotttt...
What the hell is going on?
Thoughts after reading Taunt: What did I just read?!

Trying to sum up Taunt is almost impossible. Try "a paranormal-tinged, romantic suspense thriller that at times takes backseat to a totally in-your-face ménage power struggle that is unlike any ménage you've ever read before." It is a book that requires patience because so many of the early chapters create more que

When I get a copy of an Eve Dangerfield book in my hands, I crack it open with great excitement and Taunt was no exception. Why? Because this author delivers. Her humour is outstanding, her romances are sexy and the characters make you care. Taunt did something more as well. This romance took me right out of my comfort zone but not for the reasons you'd suspect. A menage romance, it definitely cranks up the heat. My comfort zone fizzled into nothingness upon meeting heroine Daniel (no typo). Dan ...more

Wow... What can I say?? I've never been so into a story where I just wanted to read in one setting... Sadly real life kept buzzing in! Lol

I'm not the type to rehash the storylines as I'm a firm believer that we just enter into a book without knowing the whole story...
However I can say, I really enjoyed reading this book, Daniel (I have to say Dani in my head saving the confusion as she is a female) Once I've kept that in my head, all is fine! lol .... But the added bonus is th

First of all I would like to thank the author for the opportunity to read and review this book. Truthfully, I probably would not have picked this book up if she had not approached me. I am not a futuristic, scientific, eco-terrorist type of reader. And because of this oversight and reluctance to step outside my comfort zone, it would have caused me to miss out on a fantastically superb read. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will be recommending it to others.

I generally do not read books that are of the dystopian, apocalyptic or paranormal genre, but the synopsis to Taunt had me hooked to say the least. Who doesn't want to read about three, sexy as all get out, ex-military men and their current job. Throw in a feisty, sexy, brunette and all bets are off. Taunt is a roller coaster ride of suspense, thrills, humor and a huge dose of sexiness!

Title: Taunt
Author: Eve Dangerfield

Taunt by Eve Dangerfield was a great 5 star read.

This is definitely different from what I normally read and I really enjoyed it.
Apocalypse, bio-terrorists, 3 hot alpha males, smart mouth female

Daniel and Cynthia are hiding out from Grassroots in Paris. Cynthia is depressed about what they have discovered and Daniel ends up losing her very early in the book.

Daniel is quite the free spirit she is very intriguing and hilarious. Her one liners were great.

Having read Degrees of Control and Locked Box, I thought I was rather acquainted with Eve's dark erotic writing but clearly I was mistaken. Eve is back with another story that will take readers places that she has never taken us before. Not only does she give us more than one hero to fall for in this futuristic novel but she gives us three. You heard me right...three! She shows us the more sensitive side of a sexy alpha with Seb, a more dominant side with John, and the oh so hot older male speci ...more

Taunt is my first read by Eve Dangerfield and I did not know what to expect from this end of the world romance. A few things I was aware before I started reading this story, one being that Dani is holding on to a secret and that is why she is being held captive. Second, there may be a few MFM scenes and I am pretty sure I can handle that scenario, it's not new in a story for me. Well, Dangerfield up the hotness level in this story and made it impossible to rate the heat between all these charac ...more
