intimate and edgy
SIREN UNLEASHED is the seventh instalment in Lexi Blake’s contemporary, adult TEXAS SIRENS erotic, BDSM , romance series focusing on the men and women of an upscale Dallas spa and resort known as The Club, which doubles as a BDSM club. This is twin detectives / Dominants Ben and Chase Dawson, and massage therapist / submissive Natalie Buchanan’s story line. SIREN UNLEASHED can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary but I recommend reading the series in order for back story. Ben and Chase were first introduced in book six SIREN IN BLOOM. The Texas Sirens series is a spin-off from the author’s NIGHTS IN BLISS, COLORADO series.
NOTE: SIREN UNLEASHED is the re-release of the 2012 book authored by Sophie Oak aka Lexi Blake with new content. There is also a slight cross-over with the characters from the author’s Masters and Mercenaries series.
WARNING: SIREN UNLEASHED contains scenes of M/F/M ménage, and BDSM sexual situations that may not be suitable for all readers. There is also reference to sexual slavery, abduction, torture and rape.
Told from several third person perspectives including Ben, Chase and Natalie SIREN UNLEASHED follows the Dom/sub relationship between twin detectives / Dominants Ben and Chase Dawson, and massage therapist / submissive Natalie Buchanan. Months earlier Natalie, along with two other submissives were kidnapped and held prisoner by a man who believed himself Master to their slaves. Healing but alone, Natalie now works as a massage therapist at The Club spa and resort, where her latest client is found murdered, and Natalie was the last to see him alive. Enter detectives and Dominants Ben and Chase Dawson, and the men with whom Natalie will fall in love. What ensues is the building sexual, Dom /sub, and love relationship between Ben, Chase and Natalie, and the search for the truth behind the murder of one the self-proclaimed furniture king of East Texas.
Natalie struggles to move on from the past. Well versed in the world of BDSM and Dom/sub relationships Natalie battles the demons that continue to haunt her days and nights. Meeting detectives Ben and Chase Dawson stirs something deep within our story line heroine, something she long thought buried and dead. Ben and Chase Dawson, although identical twins, are as different as night and day when it comes to the need to Dominate and control. Bringing a broken submissive into their lives meant starting from the bottom up in an effort to help Natalie heal from the atrocities inflicted upon her very soul.
The relationship between Ben, Chase and Natalie is one of immediate attraction but a relationship based in Natalie’s need for control; to submit to a Master that is able to control the demons that continue to control her life. Ben Dawson is the more empathetic of the two brothers; Chase knows what Natalie needs, from the very start. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic, and intense. There are some scenes of spanking and light bondage.
There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including many of the previous story line couples and characters, as well as a number of the McKay –Taggart clan from Masters and Mercenaries.
SIREN UNLEASHED is a story of family, betrayal, vengeance and trust. The premise is sensitive and gripping; the romance is spicy and provocative; the characters are sassy and spirited but struggle with memories of the past. SIREN UNLEASHED is an intimate and edgy look at the recovery and acceptance; love and happily ever after.
I will add that at the time of reviewing, I had not read the previous instalments therefore I felt that I was missing some important information regarding Natalie’s prior history.
