descriptionI like this cover. It's a fairly good representation of the story. It has good (not perfect) composition. The typography though simple is unique. Personally, I would have placed that author's name below the title at the bottom. I think that would have improved the overall composition and made it pretty much perfect.description

'Milli' by Alexandra Iff.
Please note this does end in a Cliffhanger.
This story starts with our main character Eliza living with her parents, finding out she was adopt and now her grandmother has died. Eliza mother is upset over the death of her mother and it hasn't been ruled out if it was murder or not. Eliza is asked by her parents to go to London for the reading of her grandmother's will. Eliza throws a fit and doesn't want to go but go she does. While at the airport she notices a hot guy w

This book was reviewed for Summer's Eve Reads... this was such an original plot, both exciting and intense as the story oscillated between the present and the past and refused to give up it's secrets as page after page the reader was taken further down that proverbial rabbit hole.. unfortunately whilst the storyline was intriguing the delivery left me somewhat disappointed....

The plot moved swiftly but conversely the clumsiness of some of the prose interfered with the flow of the story, particul

Milli was a suspenseful 5 star read.
I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.

Eliza has to go to London to help settle her Grandmother's estate which will help her parents financially. She wasn’t really happy about having to go. At the airport she meets Sean a hot FBI agent. He ends up being on her flight and when they get to London he always seems to be in the right place at the right time. Why is he always there? Is he the good guy?

Eliza Cruz is a twenty year who is sent to London for the execution of her Grandmamma's will, even though she didn't want to go. While there, she triggers a series of events that will change her life forever. As this story seemed to be some serious suspense, I'm not giving anymore than that. Let me start out by saying that I was confused for a minute at the beginning so it took me longer to read, but once I got past that, I couldn't turn the pages quickly enough. Diabolical twists and turns arou ...more

Wow! I didn't see that coming!
I expected a good book, entertaining book, since I already read another book from this Author - 'More than just a pair of pumps'.
What I got was a book that had more. A story of today, combined with history that were entangled with three generations and more. Milli was from the beginning Marquis de Sade 'lover' and now we are generations later and we follow what could have happened.
Read the blurb to get the story, but you must also read the book. It's so much more

It's funny, intense and mind blowing

This is a different book from Ms. Alexandra Iff. It's funny, intense and mind blowing. It's sweet and emotional as well. Its a whirlwind of emotions when you read Milli. It is so good that you cannot put it down.

It is very adventurous as well. I have never been to London and reading this book gives me an insight what this country offers for tourist. The book is very hot if you know Alexandra that well, you might do not need your panties.

Beyond horrible. I almost didn't finish it. Sean, is vile and disgusting. So is every man poor Eliza encounters. I really hope she terminates if she ends up pregnant and gets a hysterectomy too! It would serve each of those immoral, repulsive men who want to rape her! Sean is the worst by far! THIS IS NOT ROMANCE. IT is rape and non-consensual.

This is like no story I've ever read before. I was not sure what to expect from one moment to the next. Some parts slowed a little bit, but like a filler episode on television, it was leading up to the next moment. I still don't know who to trust, or where the story will go next, but I can't wait to find out. I would recommend this to anyone that likes the challenge of trying to figure out mysterious situations. Maybe then, they could help me!

Talk about fascinating. This story was definitely my kind of book. You ever read that book that just simply draws you in right from the start. That was this book. This author knows how to spin a tale and keep you interested until the very end. Don't read any spoilers just read this book. The blurb alone gives you an idea of what your walking into but you definitely want to just read this book and be surprised like I was. Love this author. Also was my first book from this author.

More of a 2,5 star. This is the first book I have ever read by this author. The story is about Eliza who has to travel to London to settle her grandmothers affairs. From the moment she boards the plane strange things start happening to her. She keeps getting rescued by CIA agent Sean, but can she trust him?

3.5 from me
I really like the overall storyline. I also really enjoyed the characters (see note) and the plot. I have a few issues. The biggest issue for me is the heroine in this book, she is horrible for me. I found her to be unrealistically annoying, whiny and just plain immature. I cited several parts of the books to friends and asked how old they felt the character was and all answered between 12-14. She is a woman in her 20s. I understand the shetered life etc, but felt it was a little over

Alexandra Iff has written a fabulous book that I really enjoyed, though it ends on a bit of a cliff hanger! I'm itching to read the rest of the story.

Milli is a hard character to really connect with - she's had a sheltered upbringing, and seems selfish and immature. But there is plenty of intrigue and glimpses into the past - a past that has a bearing on Milli's present. The first half of the book felt like I was reading a thriller, then as more back story unfolds, you are left wondering how she

I had a really hard time rating this one. On the one hand, the book is well-written and the storyline is quite unique. I love a good dark tale and this one had so much potential. On the other hand, the problems, for me, were many. First and foremost, I understand that Eliza has been sheltered and she's innocent, but no one with internet access and freedom to leave the home in this day and age can be THAT innocent. She's supposedly so innocent that she has no clue what an orgasm is and believes t ...more

I haven’t read anything by Alexandra Iff before and this turned out to be a very interesting, twisted, and disturbing story. I did find it to be confusing at times and some of the transitions were difficult to follow but, however overall it was a good story.

Milli is an interesting character; smart yet she’s also very naïve, sheltered, misinformed, when it comes to men, sex, the outside world in general. It was a bit worrisome in a funny kind of way but it makes sense as you read along.

4 unexpected stars

I needed to take a bit of time before writing my review for Miili because, not only is this one of the 'darker' novels I've come across from Alexandra Iff, but it also left me literally crying out 'what the heck? That's it?' When Eliza's grandmother suddenly dies, her father sends her to London to meet up with the solicitors to take care of the estate, and sell off what she can and come back home with the money that is needed for cancer tr

Eliza & Sean

Eliza is a home schooled kid. Not that this is a bad thing but she is very innocent. Like doesn’t know what an orgasm even IS innocent. Which even as a home schooled kid in her 20’s I think that’s unrealistic. She is also kind of annoying in that she seems……whiny in her innocence. She’s not strong & mature but innocent. She’s like 12 years old innocent. It’s just a little bit annoying and makes it a little hard to relate to her.

Overall I enjoyed the storyline as it was different and interesting. However I was a bit confused at parts and found some situations a bit lacking. The main female character was not one that I enjoyed too much and that may have been the largest reason for some of my feelings. I am not one that generally likes female characters that are meek or whiney. The overall writing was good. And I enjoyed Alexandra Iff's first dark novel. I look

I really struggled with this book. The premise of the book was pretty straight forward. Eliza, is off to Europe to take care of her late grandmother's estate. She soon meets Sean, a FBI agent that ends-up coming to her rescue numerous times. While this is all happening in the present, the story goes back in time and we see glimpses of Millie and what her life was like. This book does end in a cliff hanger.

Hands down, one of the most unique, and intriguing plots I have ever read.
Eliza Cruz is sent to London by her parents to execute her grandmothers will. After a chance encounter on the airplane, and several other situations where her life is saved, Sean O'Conner seems like he's Eliza's savior. We learn, in fact, being a "milli" no one is safe. This book really made me dive into a history lesson-with learning just about who Marquis de Sade was. For the author to spur that much curiousity, there i
