"It doesn't matter how far she runs.
This is my forest, and I always catch my prey."

As a Loxley, I know the rules, I just never took them seriously.
I only knew when I finally brought a girl here it would be special.
She would be special.
And Harper is... perfect.

Now we're out here, alone, and something's gone terribly wrong.
I broke the rules, I'm losing myself,
and I'm afraid

Bex (Beckie Bookworm)

I found this one really intriguing and unusual and I definitely enjoyed it a lot.
This is part of the dirty hero’s collection and they are all standalone reads with a loosely connected theme.
This is the second book I’ve tried from this series and my first experience with this particular author.
This is unusual in the fact that we are dealing with an already established couple so essentially not a typical romance but more of a suspenseful edge of your seat journey.
This has Jared and Harper heading

Book: Hunted
Author: Cassandra Faye
Type: Standalone
POV: First Person - Dual
Genre: Dark Romance
Rating: 4 Stars!

Age: Harper - 21; Jared - 21.

Triggers: Rape.

Once upon a time, a scorned Queen opened a box, unleashing horrible evil on the world’s heroes. Instead of gallantry and chivalry, they now possessed much more perverse traits. They’ve fallen victim to their darkest and most deviant desires. This is one of their stories...

When we first meet Jared (and Harper) he is a really sweet, fun and caring guy, so his later transformation was really something else. His alter-ego is definitely sinister and poor Harper most certainly comes off worse when he's around. Jared's slow descent into "madness" was very finely crafted, and so terrifyingly believable.

I found it easier to connect with Harper, though that isn't surprising since Jared wasn't always quite himself. This meant I didn't connect with the story with as much em

The Dirty Heroes Collection is wayyy more darker and twisted than the Sinister Fairytales Collection IMO. this book is a retelling of Robin Hood that is more towards the paranormal side. i guess i'm in the minority since i didn't really enjoy it. there's a HEA but the ending was abrupt. 😕

"It doesn't matter how far you run.

Hunted was a standalone novel in the DIRTY HEROES COLLECTION by Cassandra Faye. Told in dual perspectives , this novel was one thrilling ride .

This is the first book I have read of this collection and let's just say , I will be reading all of them now!! This book was one of the most thrilling books I have ever read. It started in a contemporary r

This is the thirteenth book in the Dirty Heroes Collection, a multi-book, multi-author series of fairytale/mythology based storylines. (very loosely) Basically, a wicked queen opened a box that unleashed evil on 14 “heroes” making them dark. I love a re-telling like nobody’s business, so I was pumped to start this one, but quickly figured out they are NOT really re-tellings. Some are closer connected, but others really only have a name or phrase that connects it to the tale.

My ambivalence about the material makes this difficult to review. In addition, it's hard to give trigger warnings without some spoilers so, if this bothers you, you may not want to read further.

Before I go into more depth, let me advise potential readers of three things. First, I want to provide triggers warnings for rape, attempted murder, and kidnapping (and, yes, these are all perpetrated by the H). Second, although all the books are loosely connected by a curse, they are stand-alones. Finall

I do love a fairytale with a modern, dark twist and Hunted absolutely delivered!

What starts out as a seemingly sweet story when Jared takes his girlfriend to his family's remote mountain cabin for a romantic weekend, takes a very sinister, evil turn as he unwittingly activates an ancient curse.

I was absolutely glued to the pages, I loved this book. It seamlessly moved from hot and sweet to dark, sinister and deviant, a total contrast to the beginning few chapters. It was fast paced and I had no

This book started off resembling a sweet love story. A drive to the family cabin with a hope of a romantic setting and then BAM!! Where did this twist come from? I was blindsided with a humongous twist and turn that I did not see coming.
This story was awesome and kept me guessing throughout. Cassandra writes remarkable and in depth characters that the reader can connect with. The storyline was so unique and different from anything I have read before! Loved it!!

Sometimes you come across a book that once you start reading it you are maybe a chapter or two in and you suddenly realize how seamlessly the story is flowing off the page and into your head. The beats are perfect, the timing spot on, the flow of the narrative so engaging and flawless you stop for a moment, taking note of it if for no other reason than it stands out.

Hunted is one of those stories.

This story covers a broad spectrum of what you might expect in a romance / dark romance story. I us

I have read quite a few of this series so I couldn’t wait to read this story. Well this was fantastic. I inhaled it in one sitting. My son walked in while I was reading. I asked him was it an emergency. He said no so I said go until I’ve finished this story and I’ll find you. When I did go to his room the first thing he asked was the book good lol

This author sure knows how to write a gripping story. This isn’t a story for everyone. However I absolutely loved every word of it.

This was my first read by this author and I was pleasantly surprised! This a slightly eerie, mysterious romance story with hints of darkness, however it isn't as dark as it could've been, which in my opinion is probably a good thing since it just adds to the mystery of everything surrounding the story. I think if it was darker with regards to certain situations or scenes, it would've needed more explanation, which probably would have taken away from its unique and mysterious atmosphere. I really

So I’m relaxing on the couch enjoying Jared and Harper a sweet couple and their adorable banter and the reminiscing of how they met.
Minding my own business while reading the sexiness going on.
When bang Ms. Faye had me jumping off the couch.
Thinking how the hell did she just turn this tale in the blink of an eye!
Needless to say the rest of the book had me on edge and my heart thumping fast.
There is no way to write about the plot without inadvertently giving something away so I will stay away from

OH MY HELL! Hunted started out sweet for about 5 seconds when BAM! Insane twists that were all kinds of turned out came to play, and I never caught my breath until long after I finished. There's so much going on here that I'm not even trying to get into details since those twists were coming in so hot and all over the place, making for some very loud f-bomb dropping on my part throughout. I absolutely LOVED this story HARD since I zigged while Ms. Fate zagged which kept me on the edge of my seat ...more

I totally dig all these Dirty Hero books. It's a fun way to get a new look at some of our favorite heroes. Well, fun, dirty, and kinky. So yay.

I love that Jared really wanted to make everything super special for Harper, no matter what, even if he wasn't quite following the rules. Of course, I don't think that he completely understands the rules, so there's that.

Harper really truly loves Jared, and it's obvious through the whole book. I think that she shows a lot of fortitude and strength throu

I won't lie. I have to say that I was a little confused at the beginning. Especially, thinking that this was supposed to be someone cursed with urges that bordered on decadent and depraved. SO, I wasn't understanding how this sweet almost swoon-worthy beginning would turn into that EVEN more so, knowing who the author was. If she isn't writing kink, she is writing some pretty twisted stuff that takes her audience out of their comfort zone.

I needed not have worried for long because once it happen

This story shook me to my soul. I've come to expect the unexpected from Cassandra Faye but this was brilliant. It starts as a cute love story between Jared and Harper but as you read, you know something is going to happen...........and man does it. I can't really say much because it would give the twist in the story away but just be prepared. Only Cassandra could take a perfectly sweet fairy tale and twist it into something that I would love. And there are only a handful of authors that can take ...more

Hunted was a dark, intriguing tale of a curse gone bad. Jared was sexy and sweet, and so perfect for Harper. Until a weekend at the cabin transforms this sweet hot man into a sinister something else! Can Harper fix what's wrong with her man before the unthinkable happens? What a wicked turn for these two! I was on edge the whole time, hoping that they would both be saved!

Wow!! Just wow! Honestly, I’m finding it hard to write my review. I’m finding it hard to put into work what I feel after reading this book. Like every book there were ups and downs. Things I liked and didn’t like. The things I didn’t really like seems to outweigh the things I do.
The chemistry between the characters was very well written. You could feel it. I felt the characters were somewhat well written. But what threw me off was the story line. I felt confused. I had so many questions left un

This was brilliantly written. It is intense, mysterious, scary as all get out and deeply disturbing. I am finally able to release a breath. So many twists and turns and never knowing what will happen next? Awesome. I rarely come across a story so gripping and maniacally terrifying.

I read and reviewed a copy of this book.

At first I was not getting so much in to the story. It just started out like a sweet old romance but then oh wow it definitely turn to something that was way beyond sweet. Harper she definitely love Jared to go through all that and still come out stronger. So I would say that I enjoy read their story.

When I first started this book it was a wonderful love story with Harper and Jared totally in love with each other, but I know how Cassandra Faye writes and I was waiting for the bomb to explode and it sure did. The hell that they went through was more than anyone should go through., but Harper’s love for Jared is what saved them. Now you will have to read the wonderful book and see what hell they went through. Enjoy
