ARC Book Review: Marked

Marked (Beyond, #3.5; Thompson & Sons, #1)Marked by Lauren Dane Vivian Arend and Kit Rocha
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This anthology I was lucky enough to review is 4 stars overall, and will have starred reviews for each story.

Beyond Temptation by Kit Rocha
5 stars
This entry into the erotic post apocalyptic Beyond series focuses on Noah, a covert hacker, and Emma, an O'Kane gal who has history with him. The leader of Sector 4, Dallas O'Kane, needs Noah's skills, and the way he gets him to come out of hiding is to have Emma pit the word out. Emma isn't the little girl Noah remembers-she is a bona fide woman wearing O'Kane ink. As they sort through their baggage, Emma wants to prove to Noah that she wants a partner, not a protector.

Another fantastic account of life Beyond -hot and dirty with heart!

Rocky Ride by Vivian Arend
4 stars
This was a sweet and hot story of Mitch, the seemingly bad boy biker, and Anna, a had working constable. These two opposites have been having secret, kinky interludes for a while, but Mitch is getting tired of sneaking around. Despite his reputation, Mitch is a good guy, and wants to show off his relationship with Anna, who is extremely private. Will she let him in, and take their relationship public?

Really enjoyed this one, and am a new fan of Vivian Arend!

All That Remains by Lauren Dane
3 stars
This is the beginning of a new series about a futuristic society where women are scarce and triads with 2 men are commonplace. Summer meets Charlie in her small town, and they click immediately. She has never been in a triad before but is willing to give it a try, until she finds out the other man in Charlie's life is Hatch. She grew up with Hatch and they dated seriously before Hatch decided to see more of what the world had to offer. Will she be able to get over her hurt and find love twice over?

I am a huge Lauren Dane fan, but I didn't connect with this one the way I wanted to. There was plenty of bow-chicka-bow-wow action, but I think I wanted the triad to have more of a connection.

Overall it was a great grouping, and a great read!
