Perhaps I'm not the right audience for this type of dark "romance" but I didn't really feel like I knew Laila. Because of that I felt her reactions were ridiculous. From the small bit of narrative prior to her disastrous adventure, she didn't strike me as impulsive or dim-witted.

Yet most of her actions were not in her best interest. I also felt that if Hector or Juan were as ruthless as Ms. Jane wrote (and repeated), she would have been eliminated quite early on.

So, the story didn't ring true, for me. The motivation of the characters were too all over the place. And any author, IMO, who uses exclamation points as frequently as she did has not removed herself far enough away from High School. Plus, her writing style grated on my nerves. It felt like someone who was trained in proper literature trying to write to the masses. The grammar needed help and the sentence syntax was off in lots of places.

So, I won't be reading the conclusion because frankly the whole story doesn't work for me.

It's a good story and here is where the but comes in. Laila is as dumb as the ground she walks on, seriously i couldn't wait to get this off my chest and it really bugged the s*** out of me. I understand that she can be naive but she really gives women a bad name. It is a shame as I said because the story is good but that character puts you off. Like Aiden allot but it makes you wonder what he sees in her more than just a pretty face!

It has been a while since I read something cliffhanger-y and now I know why, lol. I'd very much like to know what happens next, but as it is, I'll have to wait.

I'm not one to rate a book low because of a cliffy, so let's leave it at a warning: there be a cliffhanger at the end of this book.
Hopefully the next book is out soon.

I had my reservations about Little Doll. I'm sort of past dark-rapey romance (as evidenced by what I got a chance to read in the past year). The plot is always the same, overdone and cliched.
This book sounded like dark romance, but since the moment I read the title and the blurb, I wanted to read it, so I gave it a go anyway.

I'm glad I did! The author's way of telling a story suits my taste perfectly... not too descriptive, nor too simple; just about right.

I loved the heroine, Laila (don't love the name, though). She doesn't stop fighting until the very very end, and I loved that her spirit never really breaks even though her situation should have broken it by the fifth chapter.

Aiden was a good hero and I think he did his best with what he was given to work with. I really can't say anything else for fear of spoiling the story.

Now, how dark is it? Dark enough that some would be offended by the content. I'll talk about it further under a spoiler tag, but a fair warning would be that the book contains some triggers (most specifically rape).

There is a sex scene in there as well, for those who like to know these things. I thought it was well written and not too descriptive.
The story moved at a decent pace, and both POV characters felt read like different people to me.
I guessed the twist at the end, but it made sense.

I've read plenty of kidnap and torture books and this one followed the same pattern as most that I have read...a woman in the wrong place at the wrong time and taken because she is connected to someone and needs to pay off a debt...with her body.
It was violent and abusive towards women (even the ones who seemed to want to be there were treated badly) and all of the men were over-the-top alphas all fighting for the right to take Laila under their wing for "training".
It was an ok read for me and did end on a predictable cliffhanger (I knew what would happen but still don't know who the good and bad guys really are yet) but I'm not sure I want to buy another book to find out.

**** 4 **** "paying for her brother's sins" stars

Ends on a cliffhanger but I didn't like the characters enough to read the next book. Also the dialog made me wince in some parts.

If you don't like to read about kidnapping, violence, and the cruel things that can go along with being kidnapped by drug cartel like people who want revenge on someone that your related too who did them wrong than this book is not for you. This book wasn't very violent but it did have its moments. It's about a woman who is trying to find her missing brother but accidentally walks into the wrong restaurant who just so happens to have some very bad people looking for the same exact person she's looking for resulting in her unfortunate kidnapping so she can pay the debt her brother owes them. I couldn't put the book down, I read this book in less than a day. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

It's a compelling story and I'd like to finish it, but it's so poorly proofed that I had to struggle to finish part 1. Proper sentence structure was almost non-existent. It was riddled with typos. And, please, "all right" is ALWAYS two words. What really fries me is that so many of these writers are touted as "best selling authors" and I wouldn't put out good money for any of them.

Thank God it was free.
