Well, I have to say, I have read a book by Lolita before and I didn’t really like it. But like any good reader out there, I always give an author another shot. Let me be the first to say I AM SO GLAD that I did with her!! This book completely surpassed any thoughts that I might have had with it and I couldn’t put it down once I had started it. It was even to the point where I told one of my friends they had to get the book when I was about half way through.

This book was great; there was the right balance between the erotica, suspense, and romance that kept the pages turning. I was halfway through the book before I even realized that I was that far along. I enjoyed the fact that even though there was the sci-fi aspect to the story, it didn’t take it over completely. In fact, you forget about it while you are reading. At least that’s what happened with me!

The characters themselves were written well, you could tell the chemistry between them as the story progressed. Menace comes off as sort of a jerk in the beginning, but as the story goes along, you can tell how soft hearted he actually is. Now with Naya, she seemed completely perfect to me in almost every sense. She did what she had to do to survive, and she showed true compassion when it came to her friends.

Overall, this is a complete must read from me! I will be sure to keep my eyes out for other books in this series!

I gave this book three stars not because the story was soso, it wasn't. I very much enjoyed the the story of Menace and Naya. The characters were well rounded, well written, the story fast-paced and gripping.

My problem is that after reading and enjoying Grabbed by Vicious, a 476 page book, I happily paid $8.00 each for Menace and Venom only to find that they are each are less than 300 pages. Menace is actually only 224! If you're going to charge so much for a book, at least make it a full length book and not what I consider a novella.

    I loved this book. I can't wait for another of the Grab series.

    I loved this book. I can't wait for another of the Grab series. I loved the alpha male Menace but what was delightfully surprising was how caring and thoughtful he was to Naya. However I wish there would have been more devolvement of their relationship. Yeah he's dominant and she for the most part is submissive but I thought there could have been more as they developed their relationship and I was craving more great sex scenes but other than that it was a great book. I couldn't put it down.

    Could not put the ebook down!

    Wonderful story with great sex scenes AND action scenes.

    Menace's gentleness merged with kinkiness makes him one sexy hero.

    Looking forward to Terror's story.

    Well-Crafted Addition to the Grabbed Series!

    Lolita Lopez hits another home run with Caught by Menace, the second installment of her science fiction romance series Grabbed.

    Menace, a weapons specialist, decides it is time to settle down and find a wife through the Grab. Heeding the advice of his friend Vicious, Menace follows his instincts about which woman to chase during the Grab. I enjoyed meeting Menace’s character in the first story. Even though domesticated bliss would have repulsed Menace months ago, it was fun to see his character grow from a bed-hopping bachelor into a relationship-seeking man, all the while trying to not make the same mistakes Vicious did. Once Menace realizes that he didn’t handle Naya’s transition from the Grab to the ship well, he completely changes tactics to make the beginning of their relationship better for Naya. On her world, Naya was without family and committed crimes in order to feed herself. She and her best friend planned for years to escape the Grab and flee to another planet. But, sometimes the best-laid plans don’t work out, and instead, Naya is Grabbed by Menace. Uncertain about her future because of rumors that the Harcos men beat their women, Naya shares her fears with Menace and to his credit he alleviates them, which made me like both of these characters even more. Their sexual chemistry is electric from the start, and their bedroom scenes are steamy and passionate. As Menace figures out some of Naya’s sexual fantasies, he prepares a role-playing ménage with his friend that is so hot it will scorch your e-reader. Throughout this story, the author expands her plot of moles, gunrunners, and terrorists, adding depth to this story and to the overall series.

    Building on Lopez’s absorbing world with an entertaining couple and engaging plot, Caught by Menace is a well-crafted addition to the Grabbed series. As much as I enjoyed Grabbed by Vicious, and I really loved the first book, I was completely captivated by Caught by Menace and read it in one sitting. I can’t wait until the next book in this series—actually, it can’t get to my e-reader fast enough.

    I received an eBook copy from the publisher for purpose of an honest review for The Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
