Book Review: Mesmerized

Andrei Solace delivers death on silent feet as an assassin for the Phantom Corps. Mercenary Piper Roundtree thought she was over him. But against the backdrop of an impending war, their passion is rekindled. Now the lovers must join forces- in more ways than one-to save the Known Universe before the Imperialist enemy hurls it into irreversible chaos. 

I don't tend to read a lot of erotic romance but when I do Lauren Dane is one of my go to authors.  So imagine my delight when I started received books again for review and there was one of her's in there.  I immediately dived right in and well found myself MESMERIZED.  I am just glad that yesterday was a slower day at work so that I was able to read between calls.

I especially feel for the hero in this book.  Andrei is a good man who refuses to see that because he kills to keep others safe.  He prefers to do good deeds behind the scenes and is terribly embarrassed when caught out.  Piper is more then a match for him and their chemistry light the pages on fire.

As you can tell, I really enjoyed the book however I found the ending to be disappointing.  Ms. Dane had woven a multidimensional story yet it felt as though the ending was a rush to tie up all the threads.  I would have preferred to have seen the story arc left open and me waiting impatiently for the next in the series.

Because of the ending, this book only rates a 3.25.
