I’ve looked forward to getting Scarlett’s story since the first book I read by Marni Mann. And man, she not disappoint. However I feel as if the story was too fast. But in saying that, It was short, quick, and sexy as hell. I just wish we got more to this hot, sex driven couple.

The Scarlett we got in the previous books, is nothing like we get in this one. Okay, maybe a bit. She’s still business driven, she doesn’t mess around with business. It’s in the bedroom she’s a different woman altogether

But when she finds herself going head to head with Hudson she finds herself in a surprisingly compromising position. Hudson is a man who always gets what he wants. Whether it be the contract or th

I will admit though that I do enjoy her darker writing more, all through Negotiated I was waiting for some big, dirty, nasty twist but alas it never happened. Don't get me wrong this was a fun, quick, hot read that I enjoyed for what it was. I just felt it was lacking the Marni Mann touch I am used to with her books.

I was so excited to get my hand on this book. So excited! And in my eagerness to give this story a fair shot, I didn't pay attention to any of the teasers leading up to its release. I even stayed away from Marni's Midnighters so that no one could possibly spoil it for me and I'm so glad I did. I really thought I had Scarlett figured out by getting the glimpses of her I got from the stories about her besties Brett, Jack and Max, but I was so wrong. Scarlett had a kinky secret and I had a blast le ...more

4.5 just because I want more Hudson and Scarlett. I'm pretty sure I've been waiting on Scarlett's book since reading Signed, and good lord, it was worth the wait! Negotiated is the fourth book in Marni Mann's "agency" world. It reads perfectly as a standalone, or the ending to a hot as hell series. Marni delivers once again with the story, banter, and heat. Negotiated is not to be missed!

Scarlett is an independent woman that don't need no man. (I always wanted to say that.) She's got her best

A Marni Mann novel is legit a gift and one I can not wait to open and dive into. I absolutely loved the three previous books in The Agency series and could not wait to jump into Scarlett's story. And boy was it worth the wait! Hudson Jones was the perfect match for The Agency's Ladyboss and I for one could not get enough of them both!

When Scarlett Davis and attorney Hudson Jones initially meet the fireworks could not be denied. But when a misunderstanding comes between them, Hudson has to work e

The 4th peg of The Agency is Scarlett Davis and her book was the most anticipated one because I could sense she'd be kickass, tough as nails woman. I crush hard on such strong females and this book proves that women wielding the proverbial whip are a sight to behold.

She's no holds barred, super smart, intuitive and resourceful. She may have been duped by her nemesis-hudson Andrew John for maybe a night but she's back on track and the one holding the reins by the end. She's been playing with big

This is a hot short story that I truly enjoyed. Negotiated is Scarlett 's story and the last book in the Agency book series.
I really appreciated how this author utilized elements of the BDSM life style into the story but it didn't let that be the entire plotline and narrative.
Hot. Passionate. Intense. Fun. Are some of the words that comes to mind when trying to described this novella. Satisfying and good read it's another.

By: Marni Mann
4 Stars

While we’ve read about the men of The Agency, I couldn’t wait to read about the one and only female of this awesome business. Scarlett Davis in the other books always came across as a strong female, not afraid to go after what she wants, when she wants it.

I longed to find out what made Scarlett the woman that she became. The one who could sit at a table full of men and outwit them, out last them and come out with all the I’s dotted and T’s crossed. Without blinkin

Did I read this in one sitting? Yes. Should I have packed an extra pair of panties? Yes. Did I look up how much a flogger costs on Amazon? Maaaaaaaybe.

Marni Mann has done it again. I've only read two of her books, but I couldn't have read them fast enough. This time around we get to know Scarlett on a personal level, and damn that girl is into some kinky fuckery AND I'M ALL ABOUT IT! Hudson is exactly what she needs in a man and I adored how sweet he was with her. Their connection started with

Holy wow!!! This book!!! First off, I’ve loved this entire series. Brett, Jack, Max, and Scarlett have been favorites of mine since I read Signed! And I’m so glad to have gotten every one of their stories! To the point now that I’m really sad we’ve got all their stories now.... anyways ok time to dive in!

Negotiated is the fourth and final book following the owners of The Agency. I was so excited to read Scarlett 's story and I was not disappointed.

Oh my lanta can this book get any hotter. Im crushing on scarlett , the girl is a total boss chick. Oh and hudson sighs... he is just so alpha dominant . The man is hot. I didnt think this book was going to be the way it was but guess what it was amazing and erotic and sexy and I loved it .#ARC

Help yeah!!

I am so glad Marni Mann decided to give Scarlett a book! She has been one of my favorite characters in this series. She is a strong take control woman that gets things done. I loved the dynamics between her and Hudson in this story. He is a strong powerful alpha that gets what he wants. When these two are together the chemistry and sex is off the charts! If you like strong women, hot alphas, and some spanking this is the book for you!

We have known the bossy Scarlett, always in control of everything in her professional life, but now we will get to know her personal side, one that she doesn’t even share with her best friends.

Scarlett is an independent woman with a successful career but in her personal life she likes to be taken care, someone making decisions for her.

Hudson is one of the best lawyers in California, making deals with the sexy Scarlett, he needs to know more about her to know what he is facing with this bug

Negotiated by Marni Mann is HOT AF! Great story with fantastic characters. I loved it. My only complaint is that I want more. It went too fast. I devoured this book in a couple of hours.

I’ve enjoyed this whole series. Each book focused on different characters but the four main characters’ friendship quartet is integral to each book. I love that Marni Mann included this because it made the story more real and relatable because your friends are in your life, so I love that this is true for the ch

The book was too short and rushed to be good. The guys had a lot more time in the spotlight and this book was missing the depth the other books tried to have or had. Scarlett's taste is kinkier and I enjoyed that part. What I didn't enjoy was the pace. It was fast and that made the romance between Scarlett and Hudson not bloom correctly. Halfway through writing this review I saw that Scarlett's story was intended to be a novella and that explains the length, but it still makes me mad because Max ...more

Oh la lah. This was fun! I loved Scarlett and Hudson. Novellas are my jam to read during the week when I want to read but know I can't control myself to still do life when a full-length book is calling my name. I liked Scarlett and Hudson so much though that I wanted more, more, more. This was like a fun-sized candy bar when what I really wanted a full size :) Maybe, just maybe we'll get more of them? Because the epilogue left some room there!

I’ve been waiting for Scarlett’s book, not knowing what to expect. She has always been so hush about her love life, I had no idea what she was about but boy... she was no disappointment. Girlfriend was no disappointment! Her whirlwind relationship with Hudson was freaky good times.

This novella length book was full of minimal drama and tons of heat. It was the end of The Agency as we know it but the beginning of an even bigger group that we might get to know more about in the future, if we’re lu

Well this was a hot little kinky novella. I wish it were longer, only because I think Scarlett deserves a longer story. She’s the only female and she’s such a badass at The Agency. You don’t really know that much about Hudson, but that’s okay, he and Scarlett are super hot together getting their kink on!

Wow wow wow…. This book is so hot my IPad almost got overheated by all the sexy hotness going on between Scarlett and Hudson.
Those two were a match made in heaven on so many levels. Each chapter had my full attention and I was turning the pages like there was no tomorrow.

This is book 4 and the final instalment of this series by the amazing and talented Marni Mann who sure has a magical way with her words.
It can be read as a stand alone but I strongly suggest that you read the previous 3 too beca

Hot! Scarlett’s story is the final piece to wrap up the other books involving The Agency. I am sad to see these characters go.

Scarlett and Hudson are perfect for each other. They negotiate a hard deal and know their place in bed.

This book was hot! Go snatch it up!

Scarlett Davis is the 4th partner in The Agency and the CFO - this tells you a lot about her. She's smart/intelligent, driven, AND able to hang with the boys. What you'll find

She crafts sexy, titillating stories that weave together her love of darkness, mystery, passion, and human emotions.
