Caine (Men of Syn Book 2) by Anise Storm.
What a fantastic read this was! I love when an author can give me heat and an incredible storyline at the same time. Caine and Emery have a chemistry that just seems to jump off the pages. They truly brought the story to life for me. They were easy to connect with and root for. The storyline had me completely hooked from start to finish and I’ll be honest I felt a bit lost when I reached the end from missing the characters. It’s a well written book and I can’t wait for more from this author! Go get this book! Five stars all the way and highly recommended!

Caine Stephens is a man wanted for the murder of his father Arthur Carmichael in the Washington, DC area. On the tip of a friend, Caine leaves the DC area quickly one night and travels to see his friend, Hawke, who owns the Syn BDSM club in Denver. Trying to stay off of everyone’s radar, Caine rents a rundown hotel room with cash. And Hawke supplies him with a job as part of the security detail at Syn.

After his first night at the club, Caine stops on his way home to help a stranded motorist. Much to his intense dislike, it is Emery Wilder, Hawke’s submissive’s best friend. Emery had led a life of luxury until her father is taken to jail on money laundering and drug trafficking charges. Then his accounts are frozen which includes all of her accounts and the penthouse that she lives in. As Caine gives her a lift, he realizes that a hole she is in and now her car isn’t running anymore. He offers her a place to stay with him because she has no one else to turn to.

Even though the two are working through troubles that are related, neither of them realizes how connected their paths really are. During their time together, Caine and Emery fall in love with one another. Can they work through their troubles and still end up together or will their pasts collide in a way that they cannot stay together?

This story is truly an amazing tale of how two truly different people can end up falling in love.

Whoa. Just whoa. Storm delivers another compelling story filled with just the right amount of intrigue, romance, and suspense. I was immediately pulled into quite the ride. The momentum never stopped and I couldn’t keep from reading as fast as I could. I just had to know what would happen. Really enjoyed this book and series. What a ride.

I really enjoyed getting to know Caine and how he fit into Hawke’s life. We got snippets of Hawke’s and Caine’s relationship in book 1, but here Caine stands front and center. Caine is on the run from his past, looking to lay low while he gets his life back on track. Of course nothing goes to plan when Emery comes into the picture.

In Hawke I liked Emery and the friendship and support she gave to Charlotte, but in the beginning of Caine I could not stand her as a character. She just a stuck up girl, and then became all woe is me after her life turned upside down when her father was arrested and their assets frozen. Her character certainly grew in what seemed like a fairly short period of time, partially forced by Caine. By the end of the book I was rooting for her to continue using her new found inner strength.

This book is filled with sex, sex, sex. And who doesn’t love a darker romance where one of the characters has certain fun piercings? I did enjoy the sexiness between Caine and Emery. We get to the Dom/sub dynamic fairly early on but we also get to see the relationship grown and mature between them. I actually found the terms Dominant and submissive being used frequently by the characters but I didn’t find a whole lot of D/s instances in this book compared to book 1.

I understand that you want continuity between your books, but one problem I had with book 1, and continue to have with book 2, is that the books are written in second person. I think the author was much more aware of who the narrator was for each chapter and there was less jumping around as to whose thought pattern we were supposed to be following, but IMO it would have been so much clearer, and been more enjoyable as a reader, to have the series told from first person POV and switch between the two main characters.

This book pulled me in right from the beginning. I love this series and was looking forward to book #2. Caine is on the run, that is until he can prove his innocence after the death of his father. He heads to his friend Hawke’s for safety and to get some extra money saved up.

Caine and Emery first meet at the BDSM club SYN. Emery has a shocker when she loses everything after her father is arrested, she finds herself broke down on a rainy night. Fate steps in and Caine comes along to help her. From here we get some very hot and steamy scenes.
As these two get to know each other there is another twist that really adds another great element to the story.

Overall this was a thrilling and hot and steamy read. I really loved the characters and the bantering was great. The author does a great job with her writing and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. 1-click and get started on this series today.

Caine (Men of Syn Book 2) by Anise Storm

4 out of 5 Stars

Emery Wilder is a society princess. She has never had to work a day in her life. Her father pays for her penthouse apartment, her car, and provides a monthly allowance for her to live. Emery has never wanted for anything. Until the day her father is arrested for money laundering and drug trafficking and his assets frozen, Emery never understood the value of money.

Caine Stephens never knew his father and his mother’s death when he was five thrust him into the foster care system. Caine had to learn to survive by his own wits. A recent revelation of his parentage has upset his world. Now he is on the run from murder charges, needing a safe place to crash while he clears his name, Caine turns to his best friend Hawks. Hawks owns the club Syn where Caine starts working as security and runs into Emery.

As Emery’s world comes crashing down around her, something as simple as car trouble sets Caine’s protective instincts off. Can his controlling and protective instincts help put Emery back on her feet? Will Caine’s past catch up to both?

Where can I get me a Caine? From the growling voice to the tattoos and other decorations,everything about this man makes a girl sit up and listen. This was a thrilling addition to the Men of Syn series. Not as much drama and suspense as the first one, but still kept you interested. I think that Emery and Caine finding each other allowed Emery to transform from spoiled, rich girl into more. I hope that this series can continue with Chad or Bruce or Ayden.

Whew, I was looking forward to Caine’s story, and it didn’t disappoint. Emery is the best friend we got to know in book one. She has lived a privileged life with her father maintaining everything for her. Suddenly, her father gets in trouble, and she has to figure things out quickly – in fact it’s pretty bad. I was kind of caught off guard with just how bad. You def sit up and get worried about this girl who really doesn’t know how to take care of herself. The book takes off from page one and it doesn’t let you go. I love the action. I love the romance. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like being in Emery’s head, but she is a caring person even though she grew up privileged. Hawke and Caine’s childhoods will break your heart. Really delves into the ugly.

Anise Storm has done it again. Book 2 is just as steamy and suspenseful as the first, and very hard to put down. Caine and Emery were an unexpected couple, but each with their own struggles. As their story unravels we watch them grow and develop individually but also as a couple.
Caine flees D.C after being accused of murdering his father. He seeks refuge in Denver with Hawke who helps provide him with a place and a job. He looks to prove his innocence, but also experience some fun on the side. We then meet Emery who is a rich and spoiled politicians daughter who goes from riches to rags after her father has a scandal that rocks her world entirely. Clearing her head and out for fun she meets Caine at Hawke’s club and begin a one night stand that turns into much more.
With no place to go and no money she unexpectedly turns to Caine, who offers her a place to stay. Together they both set out to get their lives back in order with no lacking in suspense, sexual chemistry, or danger.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Caine (Men of Syn Book 2) by Anise Storm is the second book of this series and it’s a great dark/romance read. I was first drawn to this book by its cover, it really intrigued me. While this book is dark, there is plenty of romance that at first catches her reader off guard but it made this reader love her story even more. I personally loved everything about this book her plot was fantastic, her word-building was flawless, and her characters were fabulous. While reading her story I found myself enthralled in the story and my opinions of certain characters changed along the way. So if your looking for a great new dark/romance I highly recommend.
