The LOST series by Cynthia Eden was one of those series in the beginning that I wasn’t sure if I was going to read or not, but once I got started I was hooked and started looking forward to every single book just hoping the release dates wouldn’t be too far apart. Taken was a phenomenal addition to this series and I loved every moment of it.

 

Bailey Jones is a survivor of a serial killer who is known as the Death Angel. She was held captive and tortured for days when she hears the screams of another victim and tries to help only to be left for dead. After being found barely alive she informs authorities that the other victim got away, but they don’t believe her since there was no evidence supporting her claim. Now months later Bailey reaches out to LOST to see if they can find this mysterious woman and she is paired with new LOST agent Asher Young. Asher comes off as dangerous, but there is something about him that makes Bailey feel safe. The more that they look for this woman the closer they get but danger isn’t far behind them.

 

Ex-SEAL and LOST agent Asher Young might be fairly new to the team, but he is damn good at what he does. After meeting Bailey for the first time he knows there is something about her that calls to him and makes him want to protect her. But since she is a client and is still recovering from what the Death Angel did he knows he should be hands off, except that is getting harder and harder. Asher knows he can protect her and as things start occuring once they return to the site of where it all happened he believes that Bailey was telling the truth and just maybe the Death Angel has unfinished business with Bailey.

 

Taken gave me chills from the very first page, it was thrilling, heart pounding and had me double checking my locks. Bailey and Asher were such great characters. I loved how Ms. Eden had them bond over their abductions. Bailey from the start was a good person not only because she wanted to find this missing woman but she has been saving her money just to hire LOST for the job. Asher’s past was a bit on the dark side but I couldn’t get enough of him and the protectiveness he showed with Bailey.

 

I loved the whole serial killer idea that shapes this series and thought Ms. Eden put a very real spin on this story. I found the suspense build up was worth the wait and couldn’t wait to find out who the Death Angel really was. The romance was just on the okay side but I really found myself focusing more on the mystery and letting romance take the back seat, don’t get me wrong Bailey and Asher did have some hot scenes but I just wasn’t that focused on them.  The one issue I did have was the overuse of the word “lovers”, it was just mentioned so many times when it didn’t need to be. I understood that’s what they were or what they were going to end up being to one another but I did like how their relationship really started to become more to both of them.
After finishing Taken, I had trouble finding a next book to begin because all I could think about was how wonderfully written and invested I became in this story. For those who love a good romantic suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat from the beginning to the very end you won’t want to miss Taken.

Love is the most dangerous obsession…

Skye Sullivan is trying to put the pieces of her life back together. She survived a brutal stalker and escaped his abduction, and now she is looking to the future—a future that includes Skye’s lover, billionaire Trace Weston. Skye thinks the danger is finally over for her.

She’s dead wrong.

When Trace’s past comes back to haunt him, Skye discovers that the man she loves isn’t quite who he seems to be. Trace has been leading a double-life. An ex-special forces agent, his military training turned him into the perfect killing machine. He made more than his share of enemies during his time in the military—and as he built his security empire—and one of those enemies is striking back.

He won’t lose her.

Skye is the one weapon that can be used against Trace—his only vulnerability. But he won’t let her go—he can’t. Trace will do anything necessary to protect Skye. Anything. Yet when she discovers the secrets that he’s tried to keep hidden, Skye’s pain and rage may send her running directly into the cross-hairs of a killer…

Mine to Keep is an intense romantic thriller!  We are once again taken into the world of Skye and Trace.  The story picks up not long after the stunning conclusion of book one Mine to Take.  I didn’t think things could get hotter or more extreme between Skye and Trace but they do!  This couple is scorching!  I love them together and were stressed for them as danger started stalking them once again.

 

Cynthia Eden’s pen excels in Mine to Keep.  The suspense is stellar and kept me guessing until the very end! I actually said “Holy Sh*t” as I figured out whodunit.  I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in the Mine series.

Cynthia Eden has penned an absolute hit with Die For Me. Ms. Eden delves into the dark mind of a serial killer and leads her readers on one passionate thrill-ride. I could not get enough of this story. There is something exhilarating about experiencing high passion and edge-of-your-seat suspense at the same time. You know you have a winner in your hands when you cannot put the book down. I literally sped through Die For Me in one afternoon. I just had to find out what happened to Katherine, Dane and the Valentine Killer. Katherine and Dane have this hot fiery attraction that you cannot ignore. The scenes between them are sexy as hell. 

I have to say the end of Die For Me was bone-chilling. Ms. Eden really wrote a kick-ass ending that had me freaking out. I love my suspense but after that I needed a breather because I could feel my heart going a hundred miles an hour! It is difficult to find a suspense novel that gives you the perfect amount of romance and suspense. Ms. Eden gives the romance reader exactly what they need in Die For Me. Die For Me is extremely satisfying and that is why I am Joyfully Recommending it!
