Blog Tour Summoned by Rainy Kaye


Today Summoned by author Rainy Kaye is making a stop at Jessy's Bookends for its blog tour.

Blurb


Twenty-three year old Dimitri has to do what he is told—literally. Controlled by a paranormal bond, he is forced to use his wits to fulfill unlimited deadly wishes made by multimillionaire Karl Walker. Dimitri has no idea how his family line became trapped in the genie bond. He just knows resisting has never ended well. When he meets Syd—assertive, sexy, intelligent Syd—he becomes determined to make her his own. Except Karl has ensured Dimitri can't tell anyone about the bond, and Syd isn't the type to tolerate secrets.Then Karl starts sending him away on back-to-back wishes. Unable to balance love and lies, Dimitri sets out to uncover Karl's ultimate plan and put it to an end. But doing so forces him to confront the one wish he never saw coming—the wish that will destroy him.

A dark twist on the genie folklore, SUMMONED follows a reluctant criminal as he unravels the mystery of the paranormal bond controlling him.

Review

Summoned by Rainy Kaye
Published: March 2014/ Immortal Ink Publishing
Source: E-book received for review purposes of this blog tour. 

This book is  intensity personified.  I have to say, I didn't expect Summoned to be like that. Rainy Kate took the bull by its horn with this book.  The characters are sultry and the story is grabbing.  Let me explain to you why it is that way.

Summoned is the story of Dimitri who has a secret no one can know.  He is a creature of legend, he is a mythological entity who found home on this book's pages.   Author Rainy Kaye shows us a being who has hopes and desires which are secondary to his sense of obligation towards his master.  Dimitry has created a way of life for himself where he is a fullfiller of desires and everything else is ephemeral.  Everything changed when love invaded his life abruptly (Syd). From that point on , Dimitri wants his own life.

I appreciate when authors take time in creating  characters.  Dimitri and Syd are a juxtaposition.  While Dimitri is bound by a master bond which controls everything he does, Syd is free.  Characters are intense and daring. This is one of those books that keeps you reading.  The story it's surprising and unexpected.  Sincerely, I didn't expect to read this book at the speed I read it. Dimitri is a highlight as a character in this book.  He is funny in such a way that I hope he appears in other stories.

The only thing I wasn't that crazy about was the sex craze  these two experience through the book.  Good conversation and quality time cannot be underrated.  If they do not talk with each other, how can we understand them and their motivations?  When the sexual marathon between these two (Syd and Dimitri) takes a break, is when he shows as a character what he wants and who he wants to be.

Overall, dear readers if you like books with a mysterious character, lust everywhere and page turning action, you should look for Summoned by author Rainy Kaye. Summoned is refreshingly unpredictable which makes the story even better.  This is not the type of story I look for but now am a convert.

*This book is not for kids.

About A Match Made In Heaven (from goodreads):
Aspiring comic book artist Morning Glory Conroy already has too much to juggle at her San Francisco high school--mean girls, inconsiderate cliques, wannabe gangbangers--without the complication of falling for new student Gabriel. Glory's best friend, Julia, was interested in him first, and if it weren't for Julia's deteriorating home life, Glory wouldn't have had a chance to get Gabriel to herself. But does he count as a real boyfriend if his overbearing guardian forbids even kissing? Soon Gabriel is pushing Glory to show her work at art events, and the new relationship starts taking Glory away from her bff just when Julia needs her. Glory is in for a startling revelation when she discovers not only Gabriel&#…
