Overview

When small town girl Melinda Prescott is taken hostage by three hot bank robbers, she quickly discovers that a life of bank heists, luxury hotels, and kinky menages is way more exciting than working on the family farm. She should be scared of her dominating, fierce captors…but there’s something wicked inside her that’s craving to obey their every dark desire.

Melinda eagerly throws in with her three smoldering fugitives…and soon realizes that these are no ordinary bank robbers—and that bad guys aren’t always who they seem. But will her delicious captors overcome their own demons enough to let her in? And can they fight a conspiracy that’s larger than all of them?

Warning: This book contains a sexy bank-robbers-and-their-captive sandwich, light bondage, spanking, teasing hints of domination, and a little play-time in a hot tub. Oh, and some all-too-delicious alpha heroes who bend the heroine to their will.

    more from this reviewer

    More than I expected...

    My Review:

    Reading the story description, I thought this story was going to simply be a sexy, erotic romp....and it was... but it was also so much more. These guys are so much more. There's real depth to these guys (yes, the hunky bank robbers) and what they're doing that was really unexpected.

    Melinda is a bank teller trying to save the family farm. Her parents died unexpectedly and ever since then Melinda has had to be the adult for her three younger sisters. That's meant putting her needs and wants to the side. Melinda is a natural thrill-seeker...dreams of opening a bungee-jumping school. Sheep farmer and part-time bank teller to a sleaze was never her dream but she's become stuck. So, like a true adrenaline junkee, when these guys come in to rob the bank, she gets excited about it not scared...and hey, if it means the sleaze who owns the bank gets screwed...that's okay too. She has a real spark about life and even when her knees are trembling, she really enjoys the danger of it all.

    The three hunky bank robbers never planned to take a hostage, but when things don't work quite as planned, they change their plans...and she helps them. Melinda quickly discovers that these guys are no ordinary bank robbers. Combine that with the fact she really wants to escape the farm...and she asks to join them at least temporarily. Thor and Odin are all for Isis (that her new god name) to join up with them, but Zeus has a serious chip on his shoulder about the idea. What's really curious about this is the fact that it was Zeus (and his smoldering green eyes) who she really connected with during the robbery.

    Like I said there was a lot more than I expected. Thor and Odin are both sweet and sexy. Zeus is mysterious and broody. All three of them are definitely a team. They may not see eye-to-eye, but they are committed to each other and their methods of doing things. I liked them...I really did and just did not see that coming with them being bank robbers...and bank robbers who aren't afraid of using violence when they have to. I know...who would have thought, but I loved these guys.

    It's also incredibly sexy...hello...three hunky bank robbers who aren't afraid to mix it up. Thor and Odin like that Isis has joined them and they plan to take full advantage of the fact. She just has to abide by their rules and when she doesn't, well, that just makes it all that much more fun, doesn't it?? Hehe...I loved this book!

    I'm so excited that this is going to be a series. This is one of those books when I was sad to see the tally go down....I didn't want it to end...and that's always the sign of a really good book!

    Bad. Really bad

    ## BAD. Really bad. I can't believe I wasted my money and more importantly my time on this drivel. This was simply AWFUL. The heroine was an idiot. Her dialogue was pre-teen at best. Ugh, and these "guys" were ridiculous. They had these stupid rules and in order to stay she must obey everything they conjur up. The first day she already masturbates in front of them and sucks them off and gets fu*ked from behind. An hour later one of these "heroes" puts a gun to her skull and wants to kill her. And she's turned on. Lovely. NOT. I thought at least the sex scenes would be good, but once again I was disappointed. Everything was just bad. The writing, the sex scenes, the plot, the characters.....just bad.

    Wow.  This is one hot book.  A small town girl working at a bank

    Wow.  This is one hot book.  A small town girl working at a bank is taken hostage by the three bank robbers.  She has longed to get away from her family farm and although she should be scared, she is secretly thrilled to be taken as she craves adventure.  What she soon discovers is that they don't only rob banks together but share everything together, including their women and finds out just how erotic adventure can be.  I loved this book.  The characters work well together and I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series to see where they go from here.

    Ggrrrr. Bad book.

    Not happy. This book was bad from the start. Im mad at myself for finishing thinking it has to get better. Her attraction for zombie mask wearing bank robbers from the start was just weird. Absolutely Zero character development. Intimate scenes seemed robotic. More then wasting money don't waste your time.

    A different path!!

    I love erotica! Sometimes it gets hard to choose books because the underlying story is always the same; in this particular case there is an entirely new plot. I really welcomed the new story, so much so that I just bought the 3 book volume. Ms. Martin, thanks for the great story!

    Interesting plot

    I actually enjoyed this book. It starts out as a bank teller is being robbed by 3 men as zombies. She starts to help because her boss hired her to work for her familys debt and keep their sheep farm. She even shows where the private diamond collection is. They decide she has to come too. Then they slowly gill her in on their "God" rules. Zeus, Thor, Odin, abd now Isis. I was waiting for alil more at the ebd to fill in the blanks. Maybe in the next 2. Definitly hot, steamy, and full of tension.
