    Hostage to Pleasure was an enjoyable read but there is just something about this series that I can t put my finger on Something that is missing that is keeping this series from being a amazing unforgettable read for me Maybe it s the way the Psy are all pretty much the same flat and sometimes boring persons, or maybe it s that the whole way the mating works isn t 100% clear Normally with mate books there is some kind of sign that tells them they are mates In this series they all seem to float around not figure it out til close to the end of the book I don t know but there is just something a bit off for me Still I am enjoying this series.

    Ashaya Aleine Psy and Dorian Christensen Changeling Ashaya Why would I want to share anything with a man who yells at me twenty three hours of every day, then kisses me Dorian Attracted to one of the Silent His mouth set in a grim line He d cut off his own balls before he accepted that. We met latent leopard Dorian in Slave to Sensation, while we met M Psy Ashaya Aleine in Mine to Posses Actually Hostage to Pleasure could serve as part B of this book Ashayna saves two part Changeling children from her lab, so now DarkRiver pack needs to help her in order to save her son Dorian is the one who negotiated with her and now she is assigned to him We re even, he said, staying in place The debt has been paid A pause My son is safe No emotion in that So why had she asked the question We keep our promises Although Dorian hates Psy after his sister s murder, he is really attracted to Ashayna and he starts suspecting that maybe she is his mate.Ashayna does everything in her power not to feel anything She can show desire and she cannot show affection for her son If this happens, her emotional walls will crash and her sociopath twin sister will find her and destroy her again just for fun and experimentation.On the other hand Dorian will try his best to crash down Ashayna s resistance She belongs to him and she needs to realise this.And when he is absolutely sure that she is not a spy sent by the council, the pull towards her becomes stronger.Will the evil twin sister leave them alone Will the evil council leave them alone and stop trying make Psys emotionless pawns Will Ashayna s son be happy and accepted in the pack Will Ashayna behave finally as a mother Will Ashayna let herself fall in love and trust Dorian Will Dorian finally be able to shift I just want to say that I cried at the end of this book With tears of happiness.

    4,5 STARS AhhAnother Psy Changeling favourite book I give up Might as well buy the whole series before I ve even read it Only problem, what will happen when I do finish it No Psy Changeling stories and no back up series to follow it Aggghhh O_OI was a bit unsure about Doriana and what s his story wuld be like In previous books he seemed like a big flirt with this huge anger inside of him But I should ve know it There is just no way Nalini would write a bad story She managed to show so many sides, of Dorian, from a tease to a real badass, and that he really is a super cool guy with some not so nice past Ashaya is also not what I would ve expected She s super smart and her love for her son is so beautiful She fides is amazingly well for all those years, since otherwise she and her son would become a Council targed There are some pretty awesome plot twists that I didn t see coming, especially regarding her twin sister I m curius how her story would look like, since she s one pretty messed up character All in all, I abviously loved the story and I higly recommend it to all PNR fans Also for those that aresn t such a fan of PNR, give this series a try, it just might surprise you.

    5 Brilliant Shining Stars I ve been waiting for Dorian s story since he first stole my heart in Slave to Sensation, the first book in this series Boy, do I have a MASSIVE crush on him, and have from the beginning His book was every bit as good, if not better, than I thought it would be And the epilogue OMG It was freaking AMAZING The best ending in the series thus far On to the next bookIf you haven t already noticed, I think I m having a love affair with this series LOL

    5 Stars Also reviewed at Lady Jayne s Reading DenTime to catch up on my reviews for this series I heard the sniper s voice against my ear when I woke today He whispered sensual promises so savage, I can hardly believe these thoughts come from some corner of my own psyche And yet they must Because, at the end, he called me prey.And told me to run. From the encrypted personal files of Ashaya Aleine Now why does that give me a delicious shiver Because it s DORIAN sighs and swoons I LOVE Dorian And I loved this book and Ashaya _ Dorian, from the first moment I met him in the first book of the series, captured a piece of my heart In Slave to Sensation, we meet Dorian when his beloved little sister, Kylie, had just been murdered by a Psy and he was in so much pain and filled with rage My heart just ached for Dorian The other pain in Dorian s life is that he s a latent leopard a leopard who can t shift into his animal form In every other way his senses, speed, strength, etc Dorian is a leopard To compensate for his latency, Dorian is a high achiever, always striving to make sure he is the best He is a super skilled sniper, a computer genius, and is as lethal as the other sentinels of the DarkRiver leopard changeling pack, despite looking like a gorgeous surfer Dorian, with his charming nature, portrays to the world that he has come to terms with his latency and he mostly has but deep down, he hasn t really When you want something so bad it hurts, he said quietly, and you bury it, bury it so deep that you convince yourself it no longer matters and someone tells you you can have it, it s terrifying What if you take the chance and you re wrong What if you let yourself feel the loss and it s this huge pain and you can t put it back in the box Ashaya Aleine is an M Psy Medical a specialist in DNA Ashaya never really took to the Silence Protocol, ie the conditioning the Psy race has imposed on the race to eliminate emotion, in order to protect their society from mental degeneration and madness But because of this, Ashaya has very strong psychic shields, and she had to carry out a ruse for her own, and her son s, survival in the PsyNet She is intelligent and compassionate Ashaya sought help from DarkRiver, the dominant leopard changeling pack in the San Francisco surrounds, to rescue her son, Keenan, after she helped them out in the previous book.Ashaya manages to escape from the Psy research facility where she was required to work on some special projects After she escapes, she ends up with DarkRiver Dorian, specifically I loved being sucked into the electrifying sexual tension and developing relationship between Dorian and Ashaya Dorian battles with his hatred for the Psy, and his leopard self telling him that Ashaya is his mate he was a hostage to his compulsion towards her I loved the banter between these two Ashaya is strong and doesn t back down from Dorian, and Dorian can be both charming and demanding Her eyes opened.Locked with his Why are you watching me Her eyes, he saw, were not blue, not truly They were a vivid pale gray with blue shards coming in from the outer ring to hit the pure black of her pupils Strange eyes Wolf eyes My leopard is fascinated by you By her sensuous, flawless skin, her wild hair, her damn curves He leaned in and blew a gentle breath that made a rebel tendril dance I dreamed of running my tongue across your skin He spoke to release some of the tension, to leash the beast before it broke its bonds Of exploring you in long, slow licks She didn t break the deeply intimate visual connection You re crossing lines again Hell yeah It was either that or go insane And your heartbeat just got erratic The cat smiled, pleased Ashaya Aleine wasn t as immune to him as she liked to pretend What would happen if I tasted you If I took a bite out of you SHIVERS Hell yeah, Dorian is insanely SEXXXY There is plenty of hot, sexy romance, intrigue, and suspense in this one But what I loved most was how Ashaya helped Dorian heal, and how a family was formed between her, Keenan and Dorian.Ashaya s son, Keenan, was adorable, and I loved watching the bond that formed between him and Dorian, with Keenan s almost immediate trust in Dorian, and Dorian s protective instincts toward Keenan Ashaya has a twin who will Creep You Out Yet the bonds of twinhood are so strong.I m really enjoying the world that Nalini Singh has created, with the tensions between the cold Psy, especially their governing body, the Psy Council, and their machinations, and the changelings and humans I admit that I enjoy watching sci fi but not necessarily reading it, and I had found the concept of the PsyNet a little confusing, initially, but now, I am really enjoying it I think I ve mentioned this before, but I love how racially diverse the characters are in this series I believe Nalini Singh s own background of being a Fijian Indian, who moved to New Zealand as a child, and then teaching English in Japan for a few years, gave her a real appreciation of different ethnicities and I love how she knit this into the fabric of the Psy Changeling world Nalini Singh has removed the prejudice against the colour of one s skin, and instead, created a world where it is the dichotomy between cold logic versus hot emotion and the mental psychic versus physical sense driven which breeds prejudice Hate will destroy you, she whispered It ll destroy us He shuddered, burying his face in the curve of her neck The electric curls of her hair cushioned him with a soft warmth that was so intrinsically female, he couldn t hope to explain it Wrapping his arms around her waist, he simply held her, allowed himself to hold her, to accept that she was his mate And that she came from the very race he d made a target of all his rage, all his pain so that he wouldn t have to face his own guilt Then save me, Shaya He laid his heart bare, invited her to savage it.Dropping her hand, she turned in his arms Then, rising up on tiptoe, she cupped his face in her palms and drew him down Her kiss was innocent, vulnerable, a caress so gentle that it made him her

    Re reading my favorite series

    02 09 2016 Buddy reading my favorite series with the fantastic Choko and Angela over at BBB

    He hated that he couldn t control his body around her, hated the man he became when with her, hated that her presence alone was enough to strip away the veneer of civilization that was all most people ever saw

    DarkRiver sentinel and sniper Dorian Christensen is honed from steel Being a latent shifter taught him from a very young age to live with the pain of his leopard unable to shift Being different from his packmates just made him that much determined to be deadly, to be the best But ever since the death of his beloved sister, the rage against the Psy burns with a hunger for vengeance inside, one that he thought he was getting under control until he crossed paths with the very cold Psy scientist, Ashaya Aleine The intense reaction he and his leopard felt the moment he saw her, felt like the worst betrayal, and the guilt and anger is slowly consuming him Falling for his enemy was never in his plans, but denying what Ashaya and her son means to him is impossible Will loving Ashya be his doom or his saving grace

    Keenan and Amara Her twin flaws, the double edged sword that hung over her every second of every day One mistake, just one, was all it would take to bring that sword crashing down.

    Ashaya is the perfect silent Psy, she has spent years perfecting her emotionless outer shell One that hides her fractures from the Council There is nothing important to her than saving her son, Keenan, and she will do anything to get him away from the Council who uses him as a bargaining tool against her Even make a deal with a deadly changeling sniper And the time has come to make her final move against the Council, one that will definitely put her on their hit list, but that should free her son from their clutches, and that should save the Psy from being enslaved by their Council What she didn t expect was the emotions the angry Dorian would make her feel, feelings that threated to derail her emotionless shell, and that could have disastrous effects, because there is a bigger danger to Keenan, one that could find him through her

    Careful, sugar I m not real nice when I m pissed How would I know the difference You ve been unpleasant to me every chance you get If that s the result of a lifetime of emotion, she said, deliberately coating each word with frost, then I prefer Silence

    I have loved Dorian since the first book, where I was so heartbroken for the loss he suffered, for the pain that was slowly killing the man he was And I knew that the right woman for him would have to be a very strong one, who would be able to heal the wound his sister s murder inflicted And no one could have been better for him than Ashaya I just loved her, and her inner strength, how hard she fought to overcome her fears, and to save her son No matter how hard Dorian pushed against her boundaries, she pushed right back D

    I dreamed of running my tongue across your skin He spoke to release some of the tension, to leash the beast before it broke its bonds Of exploring you in long, slow licks She didn t break the deeply intimate visual connection You re crossing lines again Hell, yeah It was either that or go insane And your heartbeat just got erratic The cat smiled, pleased Ashaya Aleine wasn t as immune to him as she liked to pretend What would happen if I tasted you If I took a bite out of you

    No one writes better romance than this author The animosity between Dorian and Ashaya was simply fantastic, and once they submitted to their intense chemistry I swooned all the way The sexy times were as scorching as I ve come to expect from this series, and the romance simply wonderful I loved every single moment of these two together, and what Ashaya was able to do for Dorian in the end made me love her forever

    Would you let the Council kill Ashaya he asked.Something primal awakened in the depths of those blue gray eyes Ashaya is mine Like a child staking a claim She s always been mine

    Another character that I loved, and yes I know it will surprise most, was Amara Aleine Yes, she s a sociopath, but her redemption was her broken love for her sister, which although it could be wrong and obsessive, was still beautiful in its own way

    Kaleb took a small platinum charm from his pocket.A single star A marker.The NetMind and DarkMind had both defied him in his search for the owner of the charm, but he would succeed Failure simply wasn t an option.

    Kaleb Krychek, the powerful cardinal Psy with his ability to cause madness, is still the most fascinating character to me I just can t figure out whether he is good or bad And the mystery regarding what he keeps searching for intrigues the hell out of me

    There is no world that I love than the one Nalini Singh created in this series The complexity of the plot, the many different pieces that all tie together and the fantastic set of diverse characters amazes me The Psy Council s struggle for absolute power and the rebels determined to put a stop to Silence continues to grow, and now new opposing groups have come to light The PurePsy who can only mean trouble for the rebels, the changelings and the humans, and the Human Alliance who are determined to stop the Psy from having so much power in this world Then there is the mysterious Ghost, an infamous rebel in the PsyNet, and it s driving me crazy not knowing who he is D

    This is my all time favorite series by my favorite author and the best PNR series EVER No one writes better romantic romance and detailed and captivating worldbuilding than Nalini Singh I cannot recommend this series enough If you have not read it yet, you are missing out R E A D I T.

    4.66 A buddy read with the fans of Paranormal Romance in BBB I am very late to the Psy changeling party, but I am a firm believer in that it is better late than never And boy am I happy that my friends Joanita and Angela at BBB got back to our schedule to indoctrinate me in the world Nalini Singh has created with an abundance of creativity, a beautiful prose, and an attention to detail without being overly verbose or giving into prolonged descriptions and international monologues I am not even sure how many pages the book was it felt like it streamed through my mind in a breath and was still able to make a deep impression I liked Dorian a lot He was raw, broken, angry, hot, sexy and loyal, among other interesting qualities Who can not like a sexy Cat man But as much as I liked him, I fell in love with Ashaya She was an amazing character complex, multilayered, smart, outward cold as ice, but beneath the surface a multitude of passionate emotions are trying to boil up to their freedom and threaten to explode The chemistry and sexual tension between those two stoked a slow fire through the whole book and at moments the sizzle was scorching Then there was Amara Wow What a character She is so fascinating to me, I don t want to accept that we would not find a way to somehow fix her, as fantastical as it may be, because she has so much potential, if we can t get her fixed in a made up world, where could we Come on, Ms NS, let s get Amara a HEA too We got to revisit some of our previous couples, and I still get a kick out of how helplessly jealous Lucas still is by that damnable Wolf Hahaha So, this was the fifth book in the series and my favorite by far It was a pleasure to get emersed in the world full of weird powers and romantic changelings And thankfully, we always get our Happily Ever After Can not wait for the next book Wish you all Happy Reading and beautiful week to come

    I m totally enad with this series I loved Dorian and how he came around, his struggles of falling for a Psy I adored Ashaya s warmth once she let go of the remainder of Silence These two sigh so hot, so sweet, so lovely.

  9. says:

    Wow This series just keeps getting better and better Best book so far, loved it Ashaya appeared in the last book, and I was crazy to find out what happened to her This book is her story, what a mother would do to protect her child, and a terrible choice she must make regarding her psycho twin sister She s the best developed female character so far I really loved her And wow what a spine she has she s incredibly strong as a person, having broken Silence many years ago, she had to act emotionless with perfection, anything less would mean her and her son s death She managed to run away from the facility they were holding her in what an escape and came across directly to Dorian She couldn t get him out of her mind since that night when they met, and it took every effort to remain calm in his pressence.Dorian My he s something HOT Loved him too He s really the tortured soul in this one, close to the edge, driven by a terrible hatred for the Psy, and self hatred for not being able to save his baby sister from being tortured and murdered The first time he sees Ashaya, he s instantly attracted to her, and hates her and himself for it He s convinced she s a total Psy, with no feelings to her son, only for her own self preservation Still, despite all that, he tries to seduce her, to get her out of his system, and soon realises she s not what she seemsThose two together they were amazing, very emotional, I would say the most emotional couple yet, or maybe it s just me, don t know, but I really felt them, even leaked a tear or two at one scene, boy was that sad view spoiler when he finally admits to her about his sister s death and that he feels guilty about it hide spoiler

  10. says:

    Oh yes, Dorian is definitely as hot as I hoped he d be I ve been wanting to read his story since the first time I met him, and I m damn glad I wasn t disappointed Yes, girls, he s damn hot And a badass And an assassin sort of What can a girl ask for Ah yeah, he is a great dad as well, so it s really easy to fall for this guy Ashaya was pretty great too, I really liked her way of sacrificing herself and her plans were damn smart though what can you expect, she s a scientist What I m really curious about though is her sister, dunno if she ll get a book, but I hope so I can t wait to see what that one ll be all about
