Book Talk - Siren Beloved by Sophie Oak and Lexi Blake
I asked and received a copy of this book from the author/Inkslinger PR in exchange for my honest review. Thank you, Inkslinger PR, for providing the ARC.
Every few times I like to get bold with my reading and pick something up which is entirely out of my comfort zone. And so, this book. But frankly, it’s not as in your face as I had imagined.
Let me start by saying that I had to google a few terms so bear with me if they make little sense.
Siren Beloved is an M/M/F so fair warning there is stuff that might make you uncomfortable but no full-on BDSM. I haven’t read any other books by these authors or in this series, but this one can be read as a standalone. And if you want to venture into this genre, this book is safe to pick. It will ease you into it without getting into the minute details of BDSM.
The story in itself is engaging. The characters are strong with a vulnerable side and even relatable.
“That life is far too short to waste on grudges.
Love does not come along often.
When it does, you can’t throw it away because it isn’t perfect.”
My rating is three stars.
About Lexi Blake:
NY Times and USA Today bestselling author Lexi Blake lives in North Texas with her husband, three kids, and the laziest rescue dog in the world. She began writing at a young age, concentrating on plays and journalism. It wasn’t until she started writing romance and urban fantasy that she found the stories of her heart. She likes to find humor in the strangest places and believes in happy endings no matter how odd the couple, threesome, or foursome may seem.
Aidan O’Malley walked away from his fiancée, Lexi, and their best friend, Lucas, after a night of passion left him shaken to his core. Years later, Aidan returns home from Iraq haunted by all he has lost. The enemy broke his body, destroying his dreams of a career in music. Worse still, he lost Lexi and Lucas. That damage he’d done all by himself. While he can’t restore what combat took from him, he’s determined to reclaim the two loves of his life.
Lucas Cameron is a changed man. After connecting with his brother, he found the discipline to get his life on track. His legal career is flourishing, but his love life is a train wreck. The woman he loves is spiraling out of control. After Aidan abandoned them, Lucas and Lexi clung together, but no matter how hard he tries, Lucas can’t find a way to heal the wounds that Lexi carries.
Lexi Moore feels like a jigsaw puzzle with too many missing pieces. Losing Aidan was hard, but the true reason for her shattered spirit is a secret she only shares with her beloved Lucas. She knows she is drowning and the time has come to heal, but the holes in her heart hold her back from moving on. Shedding the burden she carries is her only hope for a happy future, but she fears she will never have the strength to reveal her secret.
When Aidan walks back into their lives, Lucas and Lexi know everything is about to change. But as they fight to reconcile their past and reclaim what they lost, a vicious predator stalks Lexi. In order to stop the killer, all three must confront the secrets they’ve carried…before they’re buried by them.
