Review: Siren Unleashed by Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak (Texas Sirens #7)


Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.

Siren Unleashed is the seventh novel in the re-released Texas Sirens series from Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak, and it's now my favorite one from the same series. This is the story of Natalie Buchanan, an almost-thirty-year-old massage therapist at the Willow Fork Tranquility Spa, and Ben and Chase Dawson, thirty-five-year-old twins and private detectives. Two years ago, Natalie had escaped the clutches of a sadist who kept her against her will, finding solace at the spa she now works at and where one of her clients has just been killed. She's the prime suspect, and Ben and Chase are sent by none other than the resort's owner, Julian Lodge, to investigate and clear Nat's name. The brothers are intrigued by this woman who is clearly a submissive yet hasn't experienced the joys of being dominated and submitting in years. Her idea of the BDSM lifestyle was marred by her horrific experiences, and Ben and Chase would love nothing more than to re-introduce the good that BDSM once brought into Nat's life. In order for these three to truly be together, they'll have to battle and ultimately conquer their personal demons.

I loved how this book not only gave readers the story of Nat, Ben, and Chase, but also provided more insight into a number of supporting characters who I am now even more curious about and whose own books I'm itching to get my hands on. As always, there was romance, sex, and suspense, and Lexi Blake never fails to titillate readers with the scorching heat between her main characters, but it's never just about the sex either. There's a whole lot of story that goes on and I admired Nat's courage to make the most of her life post-kidnapping, torture, and false imprisonment. She definitely had that connection with the twins, although each brother shared a unique one with Nat. The suspense brought in the thrills and I very much enjoyed the book from cover to cover. Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak has become my go-to when it comes to menages, not only because of the quality of the writing but because it's not merely about the sex or the lifestyle with her characters. There's emotional healing and the realization that sometimes, love isn't something limited to "only" two people. I'm giving Siren Unleashed five stars. ♥
