Siren in Waiting
Bethany “Mouse” Hobbes spent her entire life waiting, especially for the love of Bo O’Malley. But for the first time in her life, she is ready to start living, with or without him. She has found her dream, restoring a rustic farmhouse on the outskirts of town.
Trev McNamara left Deer Run a high school hero and has ...more
This is it. You understand? This isn’t sex. This is the rest of my life. I won’t ever leave you. I won’t ever touch another woman.”
I'm not usually a reader that enjoys super shy mousy heroines. So when you have a book in which the heroine's nickname is "Mouse", you give it some serious thought. Unless that book is written by Lexi Blake. Then you just dive in without batting an eyelash and be glad you did.
If you're a fan of the unrequited love trope like me, you're going to love this ...more
I blew through it. This book sits at 90k plus, and I devoured it like it was a quick 20k novella.
I am not usually a fan of virgin tales. Read this as meaning my eyes roll back in my head with a chorus of 'yeah, right'. But I swear, Sophie Oak makes me a fan of things I didn't know I liked. Except figging. ...more
Bethany (known as Mouse) has been in love with her best friend Bo for as long as she can remember but ...more
Good lord, I hated Bo. I didn‘t like him in the last book, but I thought that was because he was young and stupid. Starting this book, he didn‘t grow up at all. Some of his comments in the first half, I thought were downright hideous. And than snap! In the blink of an evening EVERYTHING changed. Yeah, not not buying that. Not even in a shallow threesome, bdsm story.
I didn‘t like Mouse too much either. And no I will not call her Bethany, because she is a Mouse and stays a Mouse.
I almost slipped to review this book. Lol Sorry. The main characters is really new and never appear in the previous book except for Bo O'Malley. He's Aidan brother who turns to be a gorgeous piece of man. And here she is, Bethany "Mouse" Hobbes is an ordinary introvert woman and Bo's BFF. Bo always care for Mouse and vice versa but they never admit their feeling towards each other that will lead them into trouble in the future.
Trev McNamara once is a golden boy from Deer Run but now he's ...more
I’ve actually started reading this book awhile back. But I have stopped and forgotten that I was reading it. It was because I was in a ménage bdsm mood and so much of that stuff in so many weeks is quite overwhelming, and shall I say, kind of tiring.
But here I am, trying again to read this and getting a fresh start although I may have to reread the first 2-3 chapters again but well, Trev is such an asshole and I love assholes, so you see.
Anyway, Bethany ‘Mouse’ Hobbes is a natural submissive.
I don't want to give too much away, but the teaser at the end of where Trev, Beth and Bo are heading to made me squeal and anticipate what's going to happen next. hehehe
I am ...more
Overall the story was ok, but the meek girl who wants a Dom I am just over that whole storyline. I am glad Bo ended up being a second Dom and not submissive as well.
Bo is Aidan’s brother from the book before.
I really have nothing else to add.
I liked the narration...
We are headed back to Deer Run to saddle up with Beth, Bo, and Trev! Siren in Waiting is book five in Lexi Blake’s (writing as Sophie Oak) Texas Sirens series and one of my favorite ménage romances from this author. A character like Bethany “Mouse” Hobbes is really able to speak to a reader like me. I can relate to her on so many levels (except for the ménage part, of course. I WISH, am I ...more
I’m always intrigued with how the logistics work out as well as how the differing personalities blend in ...more
I met Trev, Bo and Beth in Pure Bliss. At that time, I didn't know they had their own book. What made this book more interesting is that I knew they would end up together I just didn’t know how. I was on the edge of my seat.
I am enjoying how the author co-mingles the characters from her other series. Liam O’Donnell from the Masters and Mercenaries series has been mentioned in a few books in this series. He ...more
ook from Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak and I absolutely loved it. As a matter of fact I've been really enjoying this Texas Sirens series as a whole.
Trev was a different kind of hero. But I loved him all the same. He was an addict, and the events that lead him to that place were easy to understand. But the fact that he did what was needed to get on the road to recovery and to get himself clean shows an inner strength that I can really respect. Reconnecting with ...more
I really enjoy Ms.Oak (Lexi Blake’s) style of writing and Siren In Waiting was one of those reads I could not put down. Perhaps because all 3 of the main characters are broken souls each searching for something just out of their reach.
Bethany “Mouse” Hobbes has been in love with Bo O’Malley forever, but she is tired of waiting for him to sit up and take notice of what is staring him in the eyes.
When Trev McNamara returns to his ...more
Off we go, again, to Deer Run. And, other than it's name, this is shaping up to be quite the town.
Lexi Blake has, I think, to not only create characters I want to get to know, but towns I wish I lived in. And, this title is no exception.
I think, and I am pretty positive, that this is one of the Sophie Oak titles I have read previously. But, it still feels fresh and I know the author is going through and updating the books as needed, so ...more
Siren In Waiting is another release by Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak that I overall enjoyed. I hate to say this but Siren In Waiting was never my favorite of this series but don’t think I didn’t like it. I did, and I still do but I just didn’t always feel the chemistry between Bo, Beth and Trev when they were in one on one situations but get these three together all at once and well that chemistry is smoking hot ...more
When is a woman no longer a Mouse? When she’s taught to be the natural confident submissive that has been simmering in wait for the perfect Dom.
I think I’ve said this about every Texas Siren book but this truly may be my favorite…so far! Bethany “Mouse” Hobbes is such a loveable and honest character she won me over immediately. She has always been the soft spoken, often overlooked, comfortable fixture in the town of Deer Run and ...more
For the first time in the series, there's no M/M romance, just brotherly love between Bo and Trev. I like their relationship a lot because they understand each other and they're more of brothers to each other than their biological ones, not that Trev has a brother.
Before I start the crux of this review, I'd have to say that the small town setting keeps me glued. There are a ...more
Trev McNamara, Bo O’Malley, and Bethany Hobbes are all seriously ...more
These three bring out the best in each other. I really enjoyed this story as Ms. Oak never disappoints. Her scenes are hot and smexy. I enjoyed every little bondage and D/s scene. I do have to state that this was pretty light BDSM yet it was so tastefully ...more
I think it was a step down from the previous ones, simply because of the fact that it wasn't a real threesome. I would have loved it more if Trev and Bo had also been involved sexually with each other.
Another thing that bothered me - in the previous book, the twins Ben and Chase had the last name Dawson, and here they were Ben and Chase Michaels...
Other than that, it was all pretty good.
I felt like Bo may have forgiven Trev too soon, especially in light ...more
I found myself LOL-ing to my H's ire while he was watching Football today (hehe). Loved the humor and Ms. Oak's writing has gotten better and better.
Hoping we get a Ben and Chase book soon and a Shelly/Wolf/Leo book, too.
Now, if Siren-Bookstrand would only spring for better covers...
