    3.75 ★ Adrien “Adie” Dumortier is a trained operative who also has other well-honed skills that pad his sadistic resume. After being left for dead by his best friend, Adie is seeking revenge and will not stop until he succeeds. With conflicting and hidden interests at play, Adie’s mission is fraught with the potential for a disaster. “Whoever said men couldn’t multi-task had never met a deranged assassin with a taste for revenge.” From reading the Special Agent series, I was very familiar with 3.75 ★ Adrien “Adie” Dumortier is a trained operative who also has other well-honed skills that pad his sadistic resume. After being left for dead by his best friend, Adie is seeking revenge and will not stop until he succeeds. With conflicting and hidden interests at play, Adie’s mission is fraught with the potential for a disaster. “Whoever said men couldn’t multi-task had never met a deranged assassin with a taste for revenge.” From reading the Special Agent series, I was very familiar with Adie’s sexual proclivities, his hard to resist looks and devastatingly sexy charm. But now, as Adie sets his plan in motion, there is action and tension due to the various plot points at play. I definitely liked seeing vengeful Adie and enjoyed his playful humor. With the female characters, there’s still much more that needs to develop, but Leader is intriguing to say the least. While the first half of the book had a slower pace due to setting a foundation, the latter half significantly picked up the momentum. There was one part where I thought I was going to have to slap Adie because he made me so nervous, but he proved himself a few times over. Overall, I am curious to see how it’s all going to unfold because there are so many interesting variables at this point. Deadly Retaliation is an action driven dark suspense that would appeal to those with twisty erotic tastes. *An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review.* *This was a (F)BR with Twinsie Hawkey!* For more reviews/reveals/giveaways visit:

    Kaboom! Adie Dumortier is back, and he's definitely taking prisoners. Conversation is highly overrated, I'm allergic to feelings, and she can have whatever opinion she likes as long as she doesn't feel the need to share it with me. Generally, she's gagged, though, so it isn't a big problem. Fifty Shades of Grey wasn't completely terrible, but Grey was way too normal and a bit insipid for my tastes.

Conversation is highly overrated, I'm allergic to feelings, and she can have whatever opinion she likes as long as she doesn't feel the need to share it with me. Generally, she's gagged, though, so it isn't a big problem. Fifty Shades of Grey wasn't completely terrible, but Grey was way too normal and a bit insipid for my tastes. If you've read the author's Special Agent Novel series then it's very likely that you will already be madly in love with Adie. In Deadly Retaliation the sense of betrayal he feels seems to have unbalanced his ego somewhat. He's in parts a lost little boy, looking for love, and a complete and utter bar-steward, determined to wreak revenge on those he considers to have done him wrong. How you can want to both hug and slap a hero at the same time, I'm not sure, but Adie makes me feel extremes of emotion simultaneously. I don't think there are many of us who would turn down a night with this man - even knowing that it will leave us wrecked. For the first time in my life I am madly in love with a girl, and I cannot have her. It sucks, but if my love life was a Dyson, it would be one of those top-of-the-range animal and pet hair varieties. Whilst we have met some of the characters in a previous series, you can jump into the story here. Anything you need to know has been worked into this book, so whilst all the pertinent backstory is covered, it does mean it contain spoilers for that previous series. The book ends on a cliffhanger, though at a natural break point rather than a high octane moment. The book is written from multiple POV, though mainly it is Adie's along with a few chapters each from the women who both would like to have him under their thumb, as well as in their panties. There is just something about Ms Mandara's writing that resonates with my id. Her characters charm me, I find her naughty scenes a delightful mix of kink, darkness and scorching heat and there is an undercurrent of tartly sarcastic humour throughout. The pace readily held my attention, as did the amazingly creative, and crazy, plot. I absolutely, totally and utterly recommend this book. There is a pause that's as long as an elephant's fart.

A new female character got me intrigued, especially with her past that I wish to learn more in the next book. She stiffens further as my fingers begin tweaking that little nub, but she’ll only be able to resist these talented hands for so long. They know exactly what they are doing and the tunes I can play on her little instrument are fucking masterpieces. Deadly Retaliation is a story of deceit and retribution. It would appeal to readers who enjoy a Dark Erotic Suspense. 🔥🔪🔥 . . . (F)BR With Twinsie CC . . . 🔥🔪🔥 For more reviews/interviews/promo visit:

    Deadly Retaliation is one of the easiest books I've ever written. I loved being back with Adie so much. He's almost the perfect antihero. He's full of himself, he's cocky, he's the sexiest thing on two legs, and he's sarcastic as hell. My favourite kind of man ;) I can't believe this all started with Sparks, which then morphed into a six book series - and yikes - it's still going! Anyway, this will be another dark romance series, but as of yet, I couldn't tell you how many books there will be. Kn Deadly Retaliation is one of the easiest books I've ever written.

Anyway, this will be another dark romance series, but as of yet, I couldn't tell you how many books there will be. Knowing my love affair with Adie, there could be a few! This time around, I thought I'd get him involved in a love triangle of his own, although the man basically has a revolving harem of women anyway. I thought it would be nice to throw him a strong, independent woman who not only knows how to deal with what he dishes out, but can dish out some of her own at the same time. This will become clearer as the series progresses, though. For now, expect dark twisted romance, kidnapping, a nasty bully alpha male, lots of intrigue and plenty of suspense. Many thanks to all of you who demanded to know if Adie had actually died in the last book of the Special Agent series. I think you encouraged me to start this, and I'm really, really glad you did!

    Delicious evil What a cast of characters! Assassins, heads of covert ops, restaurateurs who know you have a mouthful of panties - they’re all here. Brought together for wickedness and laughs, and there’s plenty of both. If you thought James Bond was witty and sexy, you ain’t seen nothing yet. The cliffie is utterly evil, just like Adrian, it will have you on edge until the next book is out. Can’t wait! Highly recommended.

    Christina Madara is one of my favorite writers. Her style is amazing the stories are sizzling hot and the plot always exciting and thrilling. Deadly Retaliation for me is her best yet. Adrien Dumortier is hot, handsome and in this novel full of desire for hot scenes and revenge. The last book left us thinking that he would die in his brother’s hands, but Andie escaped the bomb his brother strapped on his chest just in time and now he is back filled with anger and hungry for pay back.

The last book left us thinking that he would die in his brother’s hands, but Andie escaped the bomb his brother strapped on his chest just in time and now he is back filled with anger and hungry for pay back. He thinks that his best friend and his girl left him to die. The fact is that they did not do that, when they arrived the bomb had gone off and they thought he was already dead. When Andie returned he found out that his best friend married his girl and he’s heartbroken. This novel is more exciting more thrilling filled with twists and turns that keep the reader glued to the pages. I was unable to put the book down because Christina did a wonderful job with the hot sizzling scenes mixing humor, darkness, scorching hot sex, restraints, punishment and pleasure. Andie’s fun takes a different meaning in this novel. It does make you wonder how many women will fall in love with him before you get to the last page. The author throws a lot of twists to the story and when you think that Andie is ready to do one thing here comes something else to send the story to a different path. I simply loved the book and the main character and I can’t wait for the next novel in the series.

    I really enjoyed the Special Agent series and it is great to read about Adie. Adie is a self confessed sociopath, he is cruel, self aware, very, very clever and funny. However, he is on a mission to get back at James and steal Lois. I have to say I was a little confused with the names but it is all clarified at the end. I had to laugh at Adie’s inner voice much of the time, but be warned while amusing it is dark and sinister the further the story evolves and the tension rises towards the end of I really enjoyed the Special Agent series and it is great to read about Adie.

    HOLY HOTNESS! Mandara has taken over as mmt favorite author. I was devastated when the bomb went off thinking we lost Adie, but he's back. Watch out James and Lous because Adie is on his way. Adie has to be one of the darkest, creative, cunning, and spectacular character out there. Getting a look into his mind, which is of course all about sex, was fantastic. This book takes you on quite a ride. And did I mention there's a lot of sex? I'm dying to give away all the juicy details, but I can't. Gr HOLY HOTNESS! Mandara has taken over as mmt favorite author.

    If you have read and loved the Secret Agents series then this is a must read. It is all about Adie and what happens after that explosive ending of the Secret Agent series. Adie is in all his unapologetic glory. He is true to himself in every way. There are a lot of great, funny, sassy, sexy conversations between the characters. It made me laugh. There is also a lot of action going on, so you will be flipping page after page to find out what will happen next. I can’t wait for the next book.

    3 1/2 stars. I feel so misled about this book. Yes, Adie is getting revenge by kidnapping James’ sister because James stole Lois from him. Coupled with various typos throughout, the majority of the book was about Adie’s need to get the better of his boss, Elizabeth Sharkey as he is being ridiculed in the office by his boss and colleagues over his failure to beat his counterpart assassin, Melanie Leader at each mission he is given. Just as we are about to see if James will confront Adie, the book 3 1/2 stars. I feel so misled about this book.
