Being sold is just the beginning.

The best thing that ever happened to me was getting drugged in a nightclub and waking up in the possession of a man twice my age, a man who tells me he is going to train me and then sell me to the highest bidder.

What he doesn’t know is that I’m safer in his cage than I am on the streets.
He’s not the worst man in my life.

★ The transaction of Siri ★

—>>> “I am a monster, but one with ethics.” ~ Stavros

Stavros does not know what to make of this girl who does not act according to his usual expectations. She no longer is the simple and straightforward “financial transaction” trained for his high-demand hobby. Instead, she intrigues and captivates him, becoming the object of his intense scrutiny.

Loved the intense interaction woven with well-described thoughts and emotions from both points of view. I was wholl

I am familiar with Loki Renard but this may be the first book of hers I have read....it popped up on my suggestion list and the blurb pulled me in. And after the short read, its left me....


Thats not to say it was a bad read, in fact it was phenomenal....never before have I read something so short yet so detailed and action packed. This author definitely has a talent few have mastered, everything

I jumped into this blind and I’m so glad I did. While reading I had so many questions and thankfully the author answered them eventually lol yes she made me wait, made me wonder who this girl, Siri was and what she wanted.

So much more to this story then I thought. When I thought the story was gonna finish the author gave it another twist for me to gasp to.

Brilliant read that I literally inhaled in a day. I didn’t want it to end. Written well with a good storyline though be aware this isn’t a sto

When two people are so broken they no longer fit the mold society sets for proper conduct, what happens? Loki Renard gives us Stavros and Siri. Neither one fit the mold. Both are broken and flawed. When these two meet under unusual circumstances all hell breaks loose and world collide. This was a beautiful anti-hero/heroine love story of epic proportion that I was thrilled to have the chance to read this ARC and give my honest review.

I have mixed feelings about Loki Renard; many of the reasons why are represented in this book. Because of these, I found this hard to rate, so settled on 3 stars. If, however, your qualms are not mine, you'll probably rate this book more highly. As always, this is my opinion; take it for what it's worth.

Likes:

1) Strong heroines: Or "bratty," as they're frequently called. What I like best about Ms. Renard's books is that her female characters stay true to themselves: the discipline may briefly co

Just to get this out of the way, I know the book is branded as a dark romance, but i didn't find it particularly dark, given the subject matter. This was more of a psychological thriller with a few dark-ish elements in my opinion. It really concentrates on why Siri is so different than the average girl picked up to be molded and sold through human trafficking, and her battle of wills with Stavros, the seller. He immediately thinks she's not your average girl...perhaps a cop? But Siri is determin ...more

Another emotional, psychologically deep, and full of suspense romantic MUST-READ!
Once again, author Loki Renard gives her avid fans a marvelous romance disguised within an action packed and deeply psychological thriller. Once again, she titillates those readers with the promise of “there is more to this story,” and when that “more” is delivered it is so totally out of the box, that the reader’s reality is modified by the knowledge. Renard’s ability to tease, entice torment and tempt her readers

Take everything you think you know, or what you expect, when it comes to abduction stories and toss it out the window. Going into this one with any expectations as to what direction you think this story is going to take are just going to keep you confused. Instead, enter this one with the expectation of secrets, lies, danger, passion, and tons of sexiness. There are also characters who will keep your head spinning, and a plot that will keep you on the edge of your seat with the anxiety of not kn ...more

I was completely captivated by the characters and their motives, the interaction between them and this kind of cat and mouse situation going on. The storyline kept me hooked from beginning to end.

Wow! I knew this was supposed to be dark, but other than that I went in blind. I was so glad I did as I didn’t have an idea of what to expect.

So, Siri and Stavros meet under the weirdest circumstances. Typically, the girls he takes possession of a scared to death and Siri is completely 180 from what he is used to. Quite quickly he is curious about her and is determined to find out what she is hiding.

I loved the intense emotions this book had. I loved both POVs. Unfortunately, the timing of this

I was really surprised by this book. I have read similar stories of course but this one was written in a unique way. With enigmatic characters that just drew me in it kept me glued to the pages.

Siri is the girl who was causing all the problems in this book, ending up in the hands of the seller Stavros, who is not what you would expect him to be. I didn't know who is more surprised when captured - Stavros or Siri, she is certainly not a female to underestimate. I just loved Siri's personality, he

 *This ARC was provided with the condition of providing an honest review* I was a concerned with this one initially. This started off kind of slow and as far as I was concerned I didn't think that I would like it. I was confused for the first couple of chapters, with the main characters for the life of me I just could not understand what was going on, what the big deal was. Let me just say that eventually at some point even a crock pot gets hot. I was so intrigued because this book gave me every ...more

He is good at what he does and enjoys the perks of the job. Stavros doesn't need the money. When Siri is delivered to him he can't wait to train her. However something is different about her.

I just love a Loki Renard story. She never disappoints me and I always finish her books with a sense of satisfaction. I especially like her portrayal of characters. Their dialogues are spot on, especially her strong and often sarcastic female leads. When her men speak, they sound like men, not some idealized masculinity. Her stories are well written and quite honestly, fun reads.

This is the story of Stavros and Siri. He’s a “seller” of women but he’s not the typical human trafficker. She wants

This was a real twist on what I was expecting! From the beginning, it seems to be a straightforward forced captivity story (which I like, but you already know how those go). Only the captive-Siri-isn't at all what the sex slave seller-Stavros-had in mind. You know something's up with her, but neither the reader nor Stavros can quite pinpoint it. I can't say too much more without spoiling who Siri is and her motives, but I really enjoyed the journey LR took me on with these two. Action, violence, ...more

That was dark and delicious! Okay not too terribly dark but really delicious. There is a kidnapping, the consent is questionable along with the intent. So if that is a trigger for you this might not be your kind of book. If you can get past these issues then you in for a great ride.
This tale has a nice twist to the kidnapped and sold story. This is so not what I had expected. Plan on falling hard for these two characters. Their personalities will pull you in and keep you glued to the pages. Yes

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of "THE SELLER" OMG!!!! Loki Renard can really write a phenominal storyline full of suspense, intrigue,angst, hot erotic sizzling sex scenes, with some intense dark twisted scenes.
Siri was kidnapped to be trained and sold by Stavros the seller but he didn't realize it was all set up he didn't kniw who she truly was.

I thought that this book was enticing and delicious. With its very unique plot and characters, this read quickly captures and controls your attention. Stavros and Siri are complex and complicated characters that easily stole into my heart. Both these characters are tough and broken but fit together beautifully. The story itself will keep you on your toes. I would liken it to a house of mirrors. There is plenty going on but most of it is not what it seems. Exciting, twisted, dark, suspenseful, dr ...more

I loved this story! I mean, yes, it’s a dark romance, but the words! So many good words that will make you smirk and possibly even cackle with glee. Not the happy glee. More like the kind of glee that your therapist would give you a raised eyebrow. Possibly a cough or a harrumph. Mixed in with the words is a dark romance that is delicious in all the wrong ways and you will love it. Along with the fabulous storytelling. The characters are broken, but you would expect that in a dark romance. It’s ...more

This was a dark read, with a few twists and not your average love story. Something that Loki Renard is just so awesome at. Stavros, a bad guy, has a side business of receiving women and training them to be sold. Siri gets herself captured (on purpose), hoping she’ll be sold, and thereby safe from who she’s running from. They end up having an unlikely connection, a chemistry that as much as they try, they can’t fight. In the end, Siri is all that Stavros truly wants, and will do whatever it takes ...more

 When Siri is taken and given to Starvos to be trained and then later sold, and this begins an interesting twisted game of cat and mouse but who is who? Loki never fails to deliver a book where you never quite know where the story is going to take you and what will happen next. But she always gives you a tale that wraps you up in the story and draws you in till it's nearly impossible to put the book down till you have devoured the whole thing. Intriguing, interesting, and down right entertaining ...more

So not what I thought!! I devoured this book. First I love a good story about this topic, human trafficking can be a hard one to write well and this story is done fantastically. I found the psychological aspects of this story fascinating. You don’t know who Siri is or why she isn’t exactly upset about being kidnapped and sold. This book intrigued me to the point that I couldn’t put it down. I did nothing all day and it was so worth it. Beautifully written the characters are fully developed and I ...more

This one is chilling at times. Stavros and Siri, these two are a definite match made in hell. Man, when you think you know what’s going on, they change the music again. You never know what is truly going to and what each person has planned. Think of a roller coaster that goes up, up, up, and then speeds down and wipes that turn. That’s what you are going to feel here. You think you know what’s going on but then BAM, something else happens. Stavros was and wasn’t intense. I can’t explain it. You ...more

Stavros grew up with a mother that sold herself so besides the struggle of living it was living with the things going on around him.

More than meets the eye here....

First time reader of this author and I must say I underestimated the content. I assumed it would be all about the taboo,kink and or sexual extravaganza which is fine by me and has its place in the captive dub con romance I crave, but this was impressively well rounded! Complete with an intriguing storyline with a hint of mystery,a brewing emotional connection ,a steely heroine and a redemptive antihero.
