Mr. Rook, by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, is the first book in the Mr. Rook's Island. This is a fantasy themed romantic suspense. I have previously read the King's trilogy by this author and couldn't wait to get my hands on Mr. Rook. This story leaves you guessing and quickly drags you into the suspenseful aspects of the plot. You turn left, but the story takes you right. You turn right, then the story veers left. Mimi Jean Pamfiloff has a way about their writing to leave you on the edge of your seat questioning what is around the next corner. This is bound to be an astounding series!!

Absolutely Brilliant! There is not a Mimi Jean Pamfiloff book that goes unread in my home and it's precisely because of books like Mr. Rook. Each series is significantly different than the next, yet somehow classic Mimi Jean in it's amazing character development, plot twists, and cliff hangers. Mr. Rook, the first book in Mimi's new series, Rooks Island, does not disappoint. The moment I opened the cover, I was sucked into Rook's world. Sleep came secondary to what the next chapter would hold and before I knew it, I closed the completed book at 4am mumbling about evilly brilliant authours. I love Stephanie's tenacity and lotalty. She is such a strong character and she compliments Mr. Rook quite well. Rook is an enigma that had me guessing the whole book. Each chapter brought a new theory and possibility... and the end of the first installment of Rook's Island answered some questions while leaving me with countless more. I LOVED Mr. Rook and am highly anticipating book 2 in this series. I definitely would recommend it. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed!

I just want to find out all the mysteries of this island. Get on the plain and enjoy! I am voluntarily reviewing this book. Thank you to the author for sharing a copy with me.

This is the first part of what promises to be a darkly sexy, fantastically clever, emotionally jarring and completely addicting island adventure with a side of mind twisting mystery I can't seem to get enough of thanks to this brilliant story teller. Stephanie Fitzgerald is brilliant, sassy and fearlessly determined to find her sister or at the very least what happened to her on her island vacation. She goes undercover making a deal with the devil to get access to a top secret island getaway where her sister disappeared and nothing is what it seems to be. Boy oh boy does Mr. Rook deliver of every devious, decadent and sexy promise that is whispered about him. Waiting on the edge of my bed (where I read) for Pawn the next part of this adventure.

There are no brochures, no advertising, no website and no government acknowledges its existence. But somewhere West of the Bermuda Triangle in Bahamian waters is an island, spoken about only in whispers where women go to have their wildest romantic fantasies fulfilled for the bargain price of $50k. The island is rife with secrets and not all is what it appears to be. But what happens when guests don’t return home after their week of bliss? There is nothing Mr Rook’s staff can’t deliver. His eyes are blue ice, his looks are straight out of a wet dream, he’s off limits, but he has made it his mission to make your wildest fantasies come true. And he will protect his island and its secrets at any cost. When Stephanie’s sister disappears after winning a vacation to the mysterious Rook’s Island, unable to accept never knowing the truth she must find a way to get herself an invite to the elusive island to try and find answers. Stephanie must fight against her instant attraction to Rook and to hold onto her mistrust, because there is so much more at risk for her than not knowing the truth of her sister’s disappearance. Full of twists and turns Mimi Jean does an amazing job keeping her readers guessing. You find yourself rooting not only for the heroine but for the enigmatic anti-hero. Another page-turner, that was impossible to put down. As I curse the cliffhanger, I wait with baited breath for the next installment “Pawn”. I was given an Advanced reading copy for an honest review.

Ms. Pamfiloff has got it! True to her other amazing series, she has written a story that holds you from the first page and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end of the book -of course there is a cliffhanger but she always delivers in the next installment. I look at it as developing more patience, lol! Without giving too much away, as the story progresses, you really start to feel Stephanie's conflict and you start to get an understanding for Mr. Rook as well. Of course it all goes out the window when you get to the end! I love Ms. Pamfiloff's stories and have been an avid reader of her's for quite sometime. I definitely recommend reading this book. If you like it, I would read some of her other series as well while waiting for the next installment! I received a REVIEW copy in exchange for an honest review that in no way influenced my LOVE of this book. Well, it did make me read it faster, lol.

Mr. Rook is book one in the brand new series, Rook’s Island, by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff. I have read every one of Mimi Jean’s books and in every one, she finds a new way to surprise me, shock me, amaze me. And, she did it again! Stephanie Fitzgerald is twenty six years old, She was studying for her graduate school finals when her older sister, Cici, announced she was going away for a weeks vacation to a fantasy island where every wish is made to come true. You can live out your wildest sexual fantasies, for a price, a very large price. But nothing will be spared to make your dreams come true. Stephanie remembers when her sister left to catch her plane. She barely took her eyes off her book she was studying to see her leave. That was the last time she ever saw her sister because she never came back. Stephanie is determined to find out what happened to her sister. She can’t rest, she can’t let go, without finding out what happened to her. So she eventually finds the contact information for the island, and books herself under an assumed name. She will go to the island, confront the owner, Mr. Rook, and find out what happened to her sister. But how will Stephanie ever get the money to pay for her fantasy vacation? It ends up she has to sell her soul for the chance to find out what happened to her sister. James Rook owns the island that has brought countless women the fantasies of a lifetime. He takes his job very seriously and makes sure every woman gets her fantasy fulfilled. Rook doesn’t mingle with the guests and most definitely doesn’t sleep with them. He’s a little confused when he is told there is an irate customer demanding to see him. Stephanie gets her wish and is finally face to face with the infamous Mr. Rook. But she never could have prepared herself for her reaction to him. One look into those eyes of his and she was lost. “How was it possible to feel entranced and literally mortified of a man all at the same time.” Stephanie wants answers, not to fall for the owner of the island. But her body reacts in a way it has never done before. She gets the feeling that Rook feels the same way. But she can’t allow herself to feel for this man. “It’s like we’re tuned into the frequency of each other’s bodies. And he kept playing with my knobs, turning up the heat.” Strange things begin to happen, though, on the island. Stephanie has strange dreams, or are they dreams, and loses time. She’s not sure of what is real and what isn’t. One thing she is sure of is that Rook is hiding something. And she is determined to find out what, no matter how his nearness seems to affect her. “What was it about him that made me feel afraid? What was it about him that made it impossible to look away?” This book was beyond amazing. I was in a constant state of, “What the heck?!!” I went back and forth between swooning for Rook and hating him. Of one thing I’m sure is that Stephanie doesn’t know her own strength. She thinks she is weak and broken. But she is anything but. In true Mimi Jean fashion, she builds and builds, then throws in a huge last minute zinger, and leaves us hanging. I simply cannot wait for the next book in this series, Pawn. Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, I love you, but I also might just hate you a little bit right now. Write fast, that’s all I can say!

Rook is an Island not too many people know about and you need a lot of cash to go there, that is if you've been excepted and the owner Mr Rook is a mystery unto him-self, not to much is known about him. The Island offers fantasy vacations for women and any thing thats desire is catered for making every woman's wish come true. Stephanie's sister had won a trip to this island but had never returned, Stephanie intends to find out what happened which means she'll have to visit the island and get on the good side of this Mr Rook, he's got to know the truth: but first she needs money, lots of it. Stephanie's determined to find her sister and her meagre cash flow is not going to stop her, she'll get there. And when she does, the arrogant Mr Rook is not on the menu...right! he can't hide away from her for ever, she plans to complain about every thing, he's got to show up eventually. He does, but she doesn't also expect hallucinations and strange happenings that freak her out. This story had me in tears...of laughter and the mysteries had me mystified, intrigued and guessing. Wonderful writing! I couldn't put it down once it started it was such a fun read, I can't wait for more in this series. I highly recommend it!

I guess I missed the part about a cliffhanger. The language is offensive and I cannot stand the female lead.
