    It's hard to like a book when you don't really like the main character: Riley Jenson. All she seems to do (from the 1st book all the way through the 4th book - Dangerous Games) is complain, complain, and COMPLAIN about how she doesn't want to be a Guardian, and how she thinks her lover Quinn is too narrow-minded when he doesn't want her to have sex indiscrimmiantly. "Oh, boo-hoo, my boyfriend doens't want me to have sex with other men!"

And the sex scenes are not even that good: there's no real emotion portrayed in them, and sex without emotion is just whorish, in my opinion. The one with the biggest heart is Quinn, and she expects him to treat her like a princess when she acts like a whore. Sorry, not my cup of tea. Riley seems to try to be more mature in the 5th book (Embraced by Darkness), when she does her best to only have one man as her lover. I don't understand why she was willing to do that for Kellen when she had a cow whenever Quinn suggested she remain faithful to him. I do have to say, that the series redeemed itself with books #6 (The Darkest Kiss), #7 (Deadly Desire), & #8 (Bound to Shadows). Riley stops acting so childish and immature, starts realizing that sex with someone you actually like is important, and starts to restrain herself sexually with other men. She actually matures! Yay! She starts to actually put some EFFORT in her relationships! Instead of expecting only everyone else to put the effort into her. I think there was actually only one sex scene even shown in The Darkest Kiss, which is pretty impressive for this author. The end to book #8 (Bound to Shadows) was fantastic, and now that I actually like the main character, I'm looking forward to book #9 (Mooon Sworn, coming out 2010, and supposed to be the last in the Riley Jenson Guardian series).

    I am really enjoying this series. I like the fact that the back story has evolved and changed in this book, the 4th of the series. I find that I get bored with series that don't vary the story that links the individual books together. In this series, as in most I read, I find that I am somewhat drawn to the villains--kind of like those you love to hate (of course the good guys too). I did not feel that way towards the villains in this book. Take Jin for instance. From the description on the jack I am really enjoying this series.

I loved him at first and thought he and Riley were going to have a smashing good time together, but I kept waiting and waiting to find something I liked about him...other than his looks. I am pleased about getting answers to several unanswered questions that have been lingering over the last 4 books. I feel I got a little closure as more little "mysteries" were revealed. I didn't get to see nearly enough of Kellen--hoping for more in #5. Quinn, Quinn, Quinn, when is he going to learn to give the girl the freedom to be the werewolf she is without trying to mold her into the little woman he wants her to be... Over all, I feel that the series is changing and evolving enough to keep me interested and wanting more. ✳✳ Reviewed on I ♥ Bookie Nookie Reviews ___________________________________________________ If you like this type of book, you might enjoy one of these groups.

    ***Spoilers ahead*** There's always a danger to rereading a favourite series and this is one of those times where you find yourself disappointed with an old favourite. I used to love this series a decade ago, but the magic has worn off since then. This is my first reread of the Riley Jenson Guardian series and I just can't figure out why I gave it four stars before. I didn't like Riley (the heroine), she was two-dimensional and lacked self analysis. Her never ending complaint about the same issues ***Spoilers ahead*** There's always a danger to rereading a favourite series and this is one of those times where you find yourself disappointed with an old favourite. I used to love this series a decade ago, but the magic has worn off since then. This is my first reread of the Riley Jenson Guardian series and I just can't figure out why I gave it four stars before. I didn't like Riley (the heroine), she was two-dimensional and lacked self analysis. Her never ending complaint about the same issues; about not wanting to become a guardian, about her need to have sex with as many supernatural men as possible because she's a werewolf and that's what werewolves do and how Quinn (her on again/off again vampire lover) should get over his possessiveness and jealousy got old pretty fast. Having sex for the sake of her job as a guardian is also a no biggie here. She needs to find her werewolf soul mate, we get it. Werewolves need sex and it's part of their culture and makeup, we get it. Riley has sex to get information/spy work, we get that too. I just didn't need to be repeatedly beaten over the head with it in almost every chapter and each book. The gratuitous mechanical sex was boring and after a while a bit annoying, especially when it seems to happen randomly at any given moment and even in the middle of life threatening situations and surrounded by enemies. It was bland and served no purpose. Sex without intimacy or as part of character and plot development leaves the story hollow and pointless. Blaming the need for sex on werewolf biology/heat reminds me of the later Anita Blake books, and a really poor copy at that. Also, I didn't like vampire Quinn, he had issues with consent (invading her mind at vulnerable moments to steal info), boundaries (trying to change her to conform to his standards and implying she's a slut/whore) and trust (withholding information) unless it's on his terms and when it suits him; also disappearing and reappearing back into her life and space whenever he feels like it, even after ignoring her for months and expecting to pick up where he left off. I really didn't like Quinn as the main hero. I didn't like the casual reference to rape, drugging, kidnapping and violence either. I didn't even like Riley's twin and the way he treated the guy who loved him was just heartbreaking. I found the characters, narrative and plot (apart from the genetic engineering) a bit predictable and uninteresting. I don't remember if the series improves or not since I read it such a long time ago, but reviewers say it gets better, i'm just don't want to continue rereading it. So this is goodbye forever to Riley Jenson Guardian series. changes in reading habit, likes and dislikes are part of developing and evolving as a reader so I'm taking my disappointment in this series as a good sign of my progress as a reader.

    Riley and her brother Rhoan are investigating the murder of several women who have been killed in what appears to be a ritualistic manor. She may have fought against becoming a Guardian but now she has been forced into the role she is determined to do her job well. As their investigations lead them to a fetish club it is up to Riley to infiltrate the club and track down the murderer. Dangerous Games is the fourth book in the Riley Jenson series and although this probably could be read first as th Riley and her brother Rhoan are investigating the murder of several women who have been killed in what appears to be a ritualistic manor. She may have fought against becoming a Guardian but now she has been forced into the role she is determined to do her job well. As their investigations lead them to a fetish club it is up to Riley to infiltrate the club and track down the murderer. Dangerous Games is the fourth book in the Riley Jenson series and although this probably could be read first as the main background plot has started a new storyline I would recommend reading the series in order so you know the history of the characters. I'm really enjoying this series though & would recommend it to any urban fantasy fan. To give a slight warning though - Riley is a werewolf with a strong sexual appetite who has several regular partners and also uses sex in her role as a Guardian to gain information about her enemies. If that is going to be something that bothers you then I'd suggest skipping this series but I would definitely recommend trying Keri Arthur's Nikki & Michael series or Spook Squad series instead. I really love Riley Jenson - she is one of my favorite urban fantasy characters - she knows what & who she is and makes no apologies for her werewolf nature. She didn't ask to become a Guardian and parts of the job do bother her but since she was forced into her role she is determined to make the best of it. Her character has been through a lot since the beginning of the series with betrayals from people she trusted and physical changes after she was given experimental drugs. I'm finding it really interesting seeing how her psychic abilities are changing and am curious to see what abilities she will gain next. I loved Quinn in the first book but since then he has been really irritating me with his refusal to accept Riley the way she is. He says he loves her but the way he is constantly trying to change her has been getting on my nerves for a while now. I think they could be a good couple if only he'd learn to accept her but I'd got to the point where I felt enough was enough - I was very pleased to see Riley coming to the same conclusion in this installment. For once she refused to listen to her hormones (that will always draw her to Quinn) and put her foot down. I think we'll probably see more of Quinn in the future but I hope he has a change of attitude in the meantime! I would have liked to have seen a bit more of her other regular partner, alpha werewolf Kellen, in this installment but I can understand why that wasn't possible with the storyline. The mystery surrounding the murders moves along at a good pace and kept me interested. I'd say this is probably one of my favorite books in the series so far and it's left me looking forward to reading book five Embraced by Darkness.

I lovelovelove Anita Blake and hot damn this series is similar and just flat-out does it for me. Unfortunately, every writer has his or her moment and Arthur had hers while writing this book. Did I mention boring? Ok, let's see, shall we? Plot! Sexy Riley Jenson, wolf chick who has a thing for Kellen (Alpha werewolf dude) and Quinn (oddly seductive with a side of soul mate vampire). How can you possible have a paranormal romance series without the inevitable lustful triangle? To put it simply ... You can't. Women are being slaughtered, mutilated and raped by some finger devouring demon who somehow manages to brutally kill his victims and dumps their bodies with a shameful yet satisfying smile. We have the devious and evasive Gautier who ... is irritating. Although there is a tremendous amount of back story for this character, I find him hollow and unworthy of my attentions :) Searching for an archaic dark god who accompanies a three-headed dragon known as death, pain and desperation, Riley finds herself with a sadist (dragon head dude of pain hah) who finds Riley quite appetizing. *rolls eyes* There are a few, brief moments of intrigue, but other than that ... I suffered my way through this book. The short conversation below may seem boring, but the progressing relationship between Riley and Sal is hilarious. Two strong-minded females, one vamp, one werewolf .. It's downright comical ;) "For weres, or for vamps who have the hots for their boss?" "Humans, asshole. Anything else?" "Nope. Such a pleasure talking to you again, Sal." "Bite my ass, wolf girl." This book displeased me until the last 20%. With that said, I give this author and the Riley Jenson Guardian series a two thumbs up. I find it fascinating and I sincerely hope that the next book does not leave me wanting. I recommend this book to mature adults only. Totally rockin awesome violence and sadomasochistic sexual and violent content. Read this series sequentially or it will not make a bit of damn sense. ~happy reading

Her clairvoyance is becoming stronger and it's freaking her out. Even if it's useful. Quinn is really starting to get annoying. I'm glad Riley kicked him to the curb!

    By half way through I wasn’t convinced that this plot was as good as the one that wove through the first 3 books in the series, but by the end it was another page turner! And a completely satisfying ending aswell

Riley Jenson, a ghampire Guardian, is looking for the killer when she finds Jin, a sexy bartender. But, he may be the key to an underground club, one with dark connotations. This is the first book in the series after we had ended the last arc. We are transitioning from a series where there is a specific goal (find and get rid of the would be genetic mobster), to just a plain old urban fantasy detective series. We are also losing the science fiction aspects of the story. There are no clones, there is no genetic modification talk, (though the laser weapons and vid phones are still around). This is just about finding a supernatural serial killer, and that is pretty much it. There isn't anything really special about it, but at least it isn't full of really bad science. The plot really is just about a serial killer to be found. Well, and a lot of sex. It does take us to an underground extreme BDSM club. Dangerous Games is pretty much everything I've come to expect out of urban fantasy. And kind of boring. The biggest portion of the book, to me, was actually the relationship drama. Of which there is a lot, and cemented my hatred of Quinn. Seriously, the guy that is grooming her to be killed by a god treats her better than the guy that claims he loves her. Quinn is such a massive asshole this entire book. All he does is try to control Riley the entire time. I don't care how much you might love a person, it doesn't excuse someone literally controlling you with their powers and long-term influencing your thoughts, just so they can get their way. It is inexcusable and irredeemable in my opinion. The world is expanding, though. The first three books were focused on vampires and werewolves and the clones of vampires and werewolves, and that was just about it with the exception of some truly bizarre lab creations. Dangerous Games jumped from that focus to a more kitchen sink approach. Almost every other critter that you can find in urban fantasy shows up in this book. We have a lot of new things dumped on us, but very little of it is fully explained to us. Then again, it isn't fully explained to Riley, either, so this isn't as a big a deal as I could make it to be. Pretty much everything else that shows up is extremely rare, thought to be extinct, or thought to be myth (or all three). Riley is put through hell this book. I said in the review for Full Moon Rising, the first book of the series, that Riley is just one of those characters that is going to go through hell for your enjoyment. That is becoming increasingly true as the series goes on. While she goes through a lot in the first three books, I feel like Dangerous Games takes it a step further. It is personal. It is trying to break her. This is only the first book where she is doing the actual job, and not just her revenge story, and she is already showing signs of cracking. I love characters that go through hell, it makes the story so much more memorable. Dangerous Games isn't the best book in the series so far. It is showing growing pains. The characters are even less likable. BUT, there is still room to grow. This isn't the doom of the series. Just a small hiccough.

    I was pleasantly surprised with the plot of this book. I absolutely love Gautier and I'm glad he had a part in this one, though I would have liked to see more of him. The demon summoning and god of darkness elements of the plot were interesting, the Riley's emotional vampire lover was entertaining. I really enjoy this series. Something about it just gets to me.

Riley is a strong character that has her weaknesses and will admit to them upfront. I have to say that some of her convictions get a bit irritating when repeated over and over again, and she does admit to being hypocritical and times. The only downfall to this book was that there wasn't much of a plot cliffhanger. The people in charge of the labs are dead, some other people are dead (won't mention who due to spoilers), what is left other than relationship drama between Kellen, Riley, and Quinn? I really really hope it doesn't come down to that. I love the action and the paranormal elements at play here, and I would hate to lose them. At the moment though I'm happy to have read this and can't wait for the next one.

    Ugh, still see people bitching about how they don't like Riley, cuz she's a whore, because she has sex with multiple men without emotions involved, because she sees sex as a beautiful thing that can be shared between two people with an emotional connection, or just a beautiful thing that can be shared for fun without emotions. And apparently if you have sex without emotion being involved, and especially if you do so with multiple people, you're a whore. (Because god forbid you know what you want Ugh, still see people bitching about how they don't like Riley, cuz she's a whore, because she has sex with multiple men without emotions involved, because she sees sex as a beautiful thing that can be shared between two people with an emotional connection, or just a beautiful thing that can be shared for fun without emotions. And apparently if you have sex without emotion being involved, and especially if you do so with multiple people, you're a whore. (Because god forbid you know what you want sexually, because apparently vaginas are like shoes, and the more often things are in them, the less valuable and nice they are. Sure, that makes sense. And it totally makes sense that the more action a vagina gets, the less the person with that vagina is worth, those things automatically correlate, sure. But still, guys can put their dick wherever they want... Ok then, makes sense....) When are people going to get over their old fashioned puritanical bullshit and realize that this isn't the 1500's anymore. It's ok to have sex with multiple people these days, because modern medicine means disease prevention and pregnancy prevention, and no one needs to get married when they turn 17 and have 5 kids to help them work their land and survive. We live in a modern world, and good god, I just wish people's attitudes towards sex would hurry the fuck up and catch up already. If you are honestly so "old-fashioned" and staid in your puritanical ways, and you really deam Riley a "whore," then why are you even on book four in this series? Why haven't you given up and gone and found a different series where a woman is only with one man and stays at home and raises his children and spends all her time in the kitchen like the good little bitch she is? Seriously, if this series bothers you so much, if Riley bothers you so much, why do you keep reading these books? If you don't like it, don't read it. Don't simply pick it up to bitch about how it was so awful you wanted to DNF the whole way through, then STILL go pick up the next book even though you're clearly not enjoying them. If you don't like them, then just move on to something else, and don't bring those of us down that DO enjoy these books with your complaining. Ok, RANT OVER. And on to the ACTUAL REVIEW, (you know, my thoughts regarding the actual book): I enjoyed Quinn initially, but the more this series progresses, the more I dislike him. I know some people tend to like Quinn and agree with him regarding Riley's sex life (and how they think she's a whore), but the more I read on, the more I think, not only is he wrong, but he's also a slightly abusive asshat. (view spoiler)[So even though Riley has been entirely open and honest with him, she's never deceived him, or tried to pretend he was the only one she was seeing, she's always told him the truth, he apparently can't bother reciprocating. God forbid he ever tell her the truth, or trust her with anyone, and hell would probably freeze over before he'd ever trust her enough to allow her to make decisions for herSELF. I think that's the part about Quinn that truly pisses me off. He professes to care for Riley, but if you care about someone, you care about what THEY want, and not just what YOU want. And he only seems to care about what HE wants, never bothers to think about what RILEY wants, what her opinions or feelings on the matter are. And worse, he thinks it's OK to force her to comply, to use his abilities to influence her will, to make her do things as he'd prefer. Because this a supernatural world, he doesn't need to hit or threaten her to make her comply, like traditionally abusive men would, instead he psychically manipulates her to keep her on a leash, and even outright COMPELS her one time, straight up FORCES her to do something she ASKS him not to. To me, imposing your will on others, FORCING them to do things they don't want to, that's abuse. And here Quinn is, all bothered by Riley's actions, even though she has never forced him to be a part of her world, in fact, she's even tried to compromise with him, and has always been honest with him about things. But he thinks it's totally OK to manipulate and abuse her, to literally FORCE her to do things she doesn't want to do. And here everyone is, taking his side, calling Riley a whore, and thinking Quinn is so great for "calling her out," nevermind the fact that he abuses her, deceives her, lies to her and manipulates her, even though he professes to "care" about her. What the actual fuck. I can't even with these people who have such antiquated and sexist views, that they honestly think sleeping around is worse than abuse. SMH. (hide spoiler)] Ok, so there's my rant about Quinn. I was into him at first, especially exploring the whole psychic connection between them thing, but at this point, I just want Quinn to go away. I mean, perhaps he could be redeemed later in the series, but he would have to drastically change as a character for me to want to see him anywhere near Riley again. I can at least say that I'm very grateful for the end of this book though. That made me VERY happy. (view spoiler)[Hooray for Riley, standing up for herself, and telling Quinn EXACTLY how much of a dick he was being, for pointing out just what it was he was doing, and trying to make him see how his behaviour IS in fact abuse. I love that she stood up for herself and told him to take a hike. (hide spoiler)] All in all, I don't have many comments on this book, other than that there was definitely a lot of closure. I have a ton of books I want to read, and the things on my TBR rotate all over the place, given circumstances, like what books are about to be released, or what conventions I'm going to that are featuring certain authors. So I may set the rest of this series aside, and revisit it again later, so that I can read some books I need to for this upcoming convention I'm attending. But my point is that this is a GREAT place to set this series down and take a short break, because we've gotten a lot of closure, and had the loose ends that have been hanging around since the start of this series tied up finally. This series could honestly end here, and I would feel ok about it, I wouldn't feel like there was anything left unfinished, although I will be VERY glad to continue reading more of this series. I'm glad that things have been put together and tidied up so nicely, because Riley deserves a break for sure, and I want her to go forth in the rest of this series kicking ass, and having a great time. And lastly, I'll say that this particular volume felt very different from the previous three, because this was much more heavy on the arcana instead of the science of supernatural creatures. I'm not upset about it though, because I love learning about the lore of this world that Keri Arthur has created, and any and all aspects of it, whether that be the creatures that exist, or the magical aspect of this universe/the mythology of it. So this book was pretty different, but I liked it, and obviously, I liked Riley battling it out and kicking ass. (view spoiler)[Particularly the ass kicking she gave Gautier. That was well-deserved, and just glorious. Sure, a bit tense for a moment, but we always knew our plucky heroine would come out on top. (hide spoiler)] Anyway, another great addition to a series I very much enjoy. I think anyone who is pretty sexually liberal, and likes a fun and action-packed urban fantasy/supernatural/paranormal world will probably be into this series. I know I sure as hell am.

    I really enjoyed this book, loved that there were new baddies in it for Riley to go after. I never rooted for Quinn and Riley to be together, he's all wrong for her and I hope after what he did she's definitely done with him (I doubt it but I'm hoping). Not really team Kellen either... so I'm hoping someone new will win Riley's heart. I really enjoyed this book, loved that there were new baddies in it for Riley to go after.

    Riley faces a deadly foe and Quinn is somehow involved. More ‘powers’ are awakening and she’s in for the fight of her life. Omg. Just keep this going. Love her confident sassy ways.

    The Riley jenson series is like brain candy. There's not too much extra thought processing that I need to do. There's really no deeper level than what is actually going on in the story as you're reading it (not that I can see anyway). I don't like all of my books this way but sometimes it's a nice departure. The fourth book in the series is no different. After the events from the last book Tempting Evil I wasn't sure where our characters would be headed.

There's really no deeper level than what is actually going on in the story as you're reading it (not that I can see anyway). I don't like all of my books this way but sometimes it's a nice departure. The fourth book in the series is no different. After the events from the last book Tempting Evil I wasn't sure where our characters would be headed. The first three novels focused on Riley and Co. finding out who was behind the cloning scheme. That done and out of the way, we are able to embark on new adventures. I can't tell you if this book was a "bridge" book between that ending story arc and another yet to come becuase I don't know what is to come in the remainding books in the series. Of the series so far I would say this story is the most steeped in "mythology" I guess is the best worked to describe it. It's less about working being studied for the future (like the clones) and more about containing an old evil. Yet with that said, I think this storyline is also one of the weakest / confusing. This may stem from the fact that Keri Arthur was on new ground in regards to this series. As stated before the other novels were all following one story arc and this is the first one that branched off. That may be why the storyline seemed a bit awkward. I mean we start out the story with two potential cases and somehow they end up merging into one case. I can't even really remember how this happened. All of a sudden I found myself along with the characters all hunting the same people for the deaths of multiple women. This story actually cuts the last thread of storylines left over from the beginning of the series. So the 5th novel should start out completely fresh with nothing being picked up (as far as the "cases" go, the relationships span the length of the series). Maybe the storyline was meant to be second in terms of importance in this book, because the relationships seemed to be front and center. Things between Riley and Quinn finally come to a head in this novel. It's difficult to really have an opinion for me because I honestly agree with Riley's sidfe of the story, but I just really like Quinn as a character. I think he's one of the most strongly written characters of the series so far, and I enjoy every time he is on the page. On one hand I also partially agree with his side (not liking that fact that Riley sleeps with various men because of the "moon"). This book was both lighter on the sex and heavier on the sex if that makes any sense. In the previous books we have Riley sleeping with multiple people multiple time throughout that whole book. In this one we see her with Kellan (who we've come to know as now one of her regular partners) and we see her with Jin. That's all. I liked that the book seemed lighter on the sex and more focused on the people. I hope this continues in later novels because honestly we've seen Riley have sex, we know she enjoys it, it's nice to know there might be more to her relationships besides sex. With that, however, I also said that this one was heavier on sex. Meaning that sex with Jin is the "pleasure from pain" kind of sex and honestly I didn't care for that detail at all. It was difficult to read those parts of the books (it plays a pretty significant part within the story). I was a little angry that even though it was something Riley didn't like, she did it anyway. She let herself be beaten because some guy found it hot because it would help the Directorate solve the case. Maybe we are now seeing how far Riley will go to get the job done? She does walk away from it, and at this point I was happy that she did, but then she walks right back in because Jack told her to. She didn't (at least on the page) try to tell Jack what this guy was about and that she wasn't comfortable. Either because she knew he wouldn't care (which is disturbing) or because despite her ranting of "not wanting to become like the other Guardians" she really would give up her morals to get the job done. In this regard I don't see eye to eye and I didn't care for it. The main thing that saved this book for me was the new direction Riley and Quinn's relationship takes in this book. I'm anxious to see how it all plays out down the line. I will continue to read the series to end hopefully this was just a little bump in the road for the series and we will get back on track next time. Until then!

    Synopsis: In Melbourne’s urban underworld, there’s a nightclub for every fantasy and desire. But for Riley Jenson, one such club has become an obsession.

But for Riley Jenson, one such club has become an obsession. Riley, a rare hybrid of vampire and werewolf, hasn’t come in pursuit of pleasure but of an unknown killer who’s been using the steamy nightspot as his hunting grounds. Leave it to Riley to find the only ticket into the heavily guarded club: Jin, a deliciously hot-bodied bartender who might just provide the key to unmasking a killer unlike any other in the Directorate’s experience. Taunted by a former colleague turned rogue Gautier, distracted by an ex-lover’s attentions, Riley follows Jin into a realm of pleasure she could never have imagined. And as danger and passion ignite, a shocking mystery begins to unravel—one where Riley herself becomes the ultimate object of desire. Riley and her twin brother Rhoan are hunting a murderer who has been butchering women. Tracking leads, Riley stumbles upon Jin--a bartender who seems human but is something more. Riley quickly learns that not only is Jin a rough bedroom partner, he is also at the center of a magical organization who thrive on sexual pain as an energy source. As Riley attempt to bring down the bad guys, she continues to be pursued by her two leading men--Quinn and Kellen. Still reluctant in her position as gaurdian, she is forced to make some tough decisions and reevaluate her life. Her relationships are once again called into question as new things about Quinn are revealed and I admit the suspence in this is one of the main things that keeps me interested in the series. Athur has a talent for creating sexy mysterious men. I don't know how anyone can tolerate Quinn, but I guess it's the authors intent to frustrate readers until the very last word on the very last book of this series. Quinn annoys the hades out of me, and I wish that Riley would just tell him to scram Sam. On the plus side for me; there is a noticeable decrease in the number of sex scenes compared to Arthur's earlier installments of the Riley Jenson series. I really think it doesn't degrade anything, but in return enhances the story plot itself and allow us to see more of Riley instead of her sex life. The one thing that continues to bother me about Riley, is, her absolutely refusal to listen to anyone when they tell her NOT to do something. Anyway, at least this book is better than the previous by a long way.

    This is book 4 for those wondering. Because somehow I messed up and thought that this was book 3. With that said it picks up pretty easy from book 3, in fact I didn't even realize I had missed anything for pretty much the whole book . . . of course I kept wondering, "Did I forget how and when Riley became an official Guardian?" Which makes me wonder about book 3's importance to the series. Moving on. This is Riley's first book where she is "officially" a Guardian, I love it.

Which makes me wonder about book 3's importance to the series. Moving on. This is Riley's first book where she is "officially" a Guardian, I love it. It show's off Riley's struggle to not become a cold killer (making her do stupid things like leaving her weapon behind!!!) and how she's learning to fit into the "new" role. Like the previous books Arthur show's off her skills for making complicated plots and mystery solving. Riley is facing a Death God and spawns from hell. This is also the book I've been waiting for to mature Riley's character as a booty kicker, but her romantic life as well. Quinn does some pretty crappy things in this book. Now I'm not saying this because I've been anti-Quinn from the get go. No I'm saying this because he's basically a manipulative prick basically abusing Riley’s trust to a degree that made me sick. Some might say I'm blowing up his actions bigger then what he did, but he basically goes in her mind and tries to change her. While that awful relationship ends, Kerren finally gets to come in a bit! This is a strong entry into the Riley Jenson universe as it steps away from the whole evil laboratory cloning plot from the first three books. It's clear that this series can stand on it's own after that epic plot arc ends, which is fantastic. It's great to watch Riley grow and finally take a real stance on certain things. It's a painful book emotionally and that's what I've come to love about Arthur's books. Making it this far, I have to say I'll follow this series to where ever it goes, and probably any books by Arthur. Sexual Content: Sexy as always. Riley does use sex for her job as a Guardian, some readers may have a problem. But if you’ve made it this far, it’s not going to shock you. 4/5- Great! Really enjoyed it.

Gautier has resurfaced and has challenged Rhoan & Riley to a deadly game to see who can capture The Cleaver first. This will settle in Gautier's mind who is the better guardian - at least that is the story he's sticking to for now. Riley's psychic abilities have grown rapidly and are put to good use in this outing. This installment was more intense as Riley took a walk on the wilder side in both her personal and professional lives as new powerful players entered the field to beleaguer guardians even more. Jack also demonstrated why he is the head of the Directorate when he suits up for action as well. I liked this installment more from the beginning than others mainly because Riley wasn't justifying her multiple lovers or the amount of sex she has although her issues with Quinn seem to be increasing. Quinn is still upset that Riley prefers to allow her werewolf side rule her and decides to withhold sex & offering romance to her instead much to Riley's dismay. Quinn also takes some other unconventional steps to get Riley to see things his way which just may be a fatal error for their relationship. For her part, Riley continues to search for a wolf shifter soul mate to go with maybe having children and a picket fence route. (In selecting partners Riley seems to be forgetting or ignoring she has a vampire side.) Pleasingly there are some answers to the Quinn enigma and a semi-resolution to their relationship. It's amazing that Riley gets work done for the Directorate, she spends so much time, effort and energy trying to sort out her personal life but for me this was still one of the better entries for the series.

That's not something you find often. I am so mad at Quinn you would really think he would learn his lesson by now. And well even though I love him, I can not blame Riley for what she did. And hey Kellan is pretty good too, so lets hope for more him in the next book. This book went deeper in the Paranormal and added some new beings into our world. And nothing good is going to come from that. Riley really has to step it up and become the Guardian she does not want to be. Which may including killing for her job or sex with potential suspects as part of her job. She finds herself deep into things that could end her life or everyone she cares for. But she never gives up and always faces the bad guys with her head held high. She really is an awesome character!! Like I say if you like a kicking ass girl lots of romance(or just sexy scenes)in this world sex for wolves is like blood for vampires when the moon is almost full. If you are into Adult Paranormal I highly suggest you check it out.

    Dangerous Games is book 4 in the Riley Jensen series. Now that Deshon Starr has been dealt with, it's time for Riley and the directorate to deal with the dangerous, and cloned, former Guardian, Gautier. While she's dealing with that, there's also a serial killer on the loose that has been dumping the bodies of young women at abandoned warehouses. The signature of this killer? A missing finger on each woman's hand. As often happens in books of this type, the two quests actually become one. As Rile Dangerous Games is book 4 in the Riley Jensen series.

As Riley is trying to find out information about the serial killer (and gets a gorgeous source along the way), she spots Gautier at the same time. And as she gets deeper into both mysteries, it looks like she may not be able to make it out. While I enjoyed Dangerous Games, it wasn't my favorite by a long shot. The sex scenes were much harder and more brutal than the previous books, and Quinn was being an utter jerk through almost the whole thing. Though, I do like the way that Quinn's past, and his reasons for being so tight-lipped regarding what has been happening, get resolved by the end of the book. I also like the fact that Riley tells Quinn that he needs to stay away from her for awhile by the end of the book. Having read future books, I know what's in store for the two of them. But seeing the 1200 year old vampire have to live by the saying, "If you love something, set it free" was an interesting bit of reading.

    Ah Riley, your character never fails to disappoint. Despite the reviews I'd read briefly online, I'm not totally won over by this book as a lot of other readers seem to be. Its by far not the best in the series, even if Riley getting the guts to say no to Quinn is the end result. I wasn't thrilled with the bad guys in this book and I think the lack of development on their part shows that they as characters were mainly there only to facilitate Quinn's character background.

This book felt more like a bridge than the others, and I'm glad that when I finished it, I felt like I gained more insight into the core characters of the series. Really the "demons" were only facilitators and not a main part of the plotline, or that's the impression I got. The one thing that I will admit disappointed me the most was the final fight with Gautier. I felt like it should have been way more intense and more of a close call than it ended up. Arthur tried to make up for this scene with gauntlet fight scene from Jin to Gautier to Kingsley, but the substance just wasn't there. And what ever happened to Marcus? Was he totally forgotten in the final chapters? I'm praying he doesn't come back in a future book. Overall I still love the main plot lines this series sticks to. I'm curious to see how things progress from Book 5 to Book 6 since I've already read The Darkest Kiss.

Next thing Quinn is in an Alley, and when he comes out he tells Riley she has to get her own way home as something has come up, of course Riley is not happy, this is another time the Quinn will not share with her. There are lots of interesting things going on in this book; Riley hooks up with good looking Jin, as part of her investigation into someone who is raising demons. She and Quinn are at loggerheads about the way he treats her and does not trust her; she gets together with Kellen – her werewolf lover, who could be her soul mate? Riley gets herself nearly killed and that action is pretty good, maybe a little over the top though.

    Book 4 was good as well. i noticed that this book has a lot less sex than privious three books did. But do not be afraid there is still sex, lots of talking about sex and lots of thinking about sex. Sometimes I think that the main plot of this series is sex. Don't get mee wrong I love sex since in the books. But with this series I feel cheeted. Sex scenes are usually one paragraph long and that it. bam wam thank you mam.

I thin that Riley has a problem with commitment, even to her soul mate that she is searching. She says one thing, but does opposite, she runs the other way from commitment. But maybe it is just me. I can't wait to see what happens next.

    It took me a while to read this one. I didn't get into it at first as I normally do, but I was very distracted with my new manga and anime obsession, sot that had a lot to do with it.

I am in love with Quinn in this series, I think it is because there is still so much about him that we don't know, but what we do know is dangerous, sexy, sweet and just down right delicious. I just know that Riley and Quinn will find a way to be with each other without hurting one another one day, there is just too much soul deep chemistry between them to throw away, but I have a feeling it's going to be a long painful journey as it always is for characters that are meant to be together, but won't give in until they have to! I love this series.

I'm not a big Quinn fan, so some of the things that Quinn does in this book make me very angry.

Mission-wise I think that Keri Arthur develops a strong plot. After finding a series of women murdered and brutalized, Riley goes undercover yet again and meets a mysterious man, Jin. Jin is much more than he seems, however, and Riley must go deep into his BDSM world to discover the murderer. I enjoyed this book and the series as a whole.

    The beginning of this book is extremely slow. It's like this is book 1 of a series again.

It seems like Kellen should have been in here a little more often, since Riley refers to him and their potential soulmateness so much. I feel like the times he was in the book, the scenes were just throwaway scenes.
