This story kept me engaged from start to finish. I read the first edition in 2014 [Locked in Torture] and didn't bother posting a review due to the issue "I" had with the plot! Honestly, I can't remember entirely what those were now.
Whether the fact I enjoyed this edition so much more was due to the changes made, or how much my reading preferences have altered over the last two years, I'm unsure. And at the end of the day, it doesn't really matter.
The story of Jenna and Ryan had many things I love in a great story! Believe you me, its not a light read, but it is a nail biting, edge of the seat riveting story! I was routing for the main characters all the way. The epilogue left me with a huge smile on my face!
Ryan signed up for the elite force tasked with missions that demand a level of lethal and deadly expertise. Jenna’s ruse portraying herself as a bumbling and incompetent agent breaks Ryan’s patience, pressuring his superiors to dismiss her from duty. Now that her career is ruined, it’s Jenna’s job to convince the Kabas she’s out for blood and revenge. Jenna’s relying on Ryan’s true nature and gut responses as persuasive evidence she’s in it for vengeance. Because Ryan’s life depends on Jenna’s ability to successfully dominate him by using enforced submission. The difficult part is maintaining her cover since Ryan doesn’t know he’s part of the operation and it’s his best protection from getting killed.
Under By Vengeance was a total surprise and a book that was hard to put down. From the start, I was mesmerized by the gripping dilemma around our two main characters, what they endured and the intensity of emotions that ran high throughout the story. Kabas used tools and terms used in BDSM but went against everything Jenna had trained for as a domme. Safe, sane and consensual doesn’t appear anywhere Kabas is concerned. I was absolutely thrilled about the ending, and Jenna and Ryan were great together. This riveting story is the perfect blend of kink, steaminess, intrigue, romance and non-stop action. Beware there are some very intense moments with Ryan’s abduction and torture. But, there’s also pleasure. With that said, it made this story all the more believable. Ms. Stonor’s writing style is flawless, includes perfect pacing and full descriptions which made for an enjoyable and entertaining read. I loved it and it’s a must read for those that love romance with elements of kink. Great job, Ms. Stonor.

This book really had certain emotions going haywire. I felt scared yet empowered at the same time. Odd, right? Well, I wasn't constantly like that, though. This is a story of Vengeance on a whole different level. These secret agents, which are our female MC, Jenna, has just had her career destroyed by our male MC, Ryan. Obviously, there's an attraction there both refuse to acknowledge, until crap hits the proverbial fan. Jenna is deep undercover trying to expose a group whose dealings are rather nefarious. AKA human trafficking, sex slaves, etc. But she's doing so under the guise of Vengeance, by having Ryan submit for his insubordination of destroying her career. He has no idea, until later, that she's undercover. The things she does to him!! That's why I was scared. I'm still trying to get used to the fact a woman is doing this to a man. And that's why it gives a female reader the sense of empowerment. But you also see that it's truly taken an emotional toll on Jenna. Ryan’s a fighter, he'll live. Jenna, though, has doubts, and most of all guilt. Ryan is the only one to put those fears to rest. Ryan, Ryan, Ryan...He fought!! I do love that about him. And when it was over, he realized he LIKED it, just without the Vengeance part. Hehe. I love these books!! The characters really go through some stuff to reach that pot of gold at the end of the twisted rainbow. Loved it!!
I received a copy of this book from the author's newsletter, and enjoyed it so much I couldn't resist leaving a review.
I save 5 stars for books I've read more than once, or picked up in more than one format, and was very tempted to give the 5 stars as I could see enjoying it on a re-read, and picking up on details I missed in this first time through.
