But, to my surprise, he became fascinated with me and blackmailed me into becoming his woman. He was Kong, hairy, tattooed from fingertips to face, with scary ass piercings, blood-shot snake eyes, a ruthless killer and above all, he was my murderer — how could anyone expect me to say yes? To save the village I had to. He took me by force, terrorized me into submission and made me his. To make matters worse, I had to put up with his ruthless, backstabbing family who hated me and wanted to kill me. I despised the bastard and I told him that. Spark flew.
Fists too. But, the more I rejected Diablo, the more he wanted me. At times he wanted to kill me because of my insolence, but other times he just wanted me to love him. I was his Gringa and in an attempt to get my love, he began to change for me.
Drastic changes that made me laugh at him at first, then made me curious. As the days went by, I found myself drawn to him and I began seeing him differently.
When I found out about his past, everything changed. Leave a response. UK Book Club Reads. Powered by Blogger. Follow my blog. Honest Sid: Memoir of a Gambling Man. Tears of Tess.

Ray and Emma are good and likeable characters that deserve one another. The analysis of mutations that are benign, invasive and metastatic tumor cells have in common allowed the determination of the times separating these different tumor stages. PRDM9 is also the only known mammalian speciation gene, causing meiotic failure and male-limited sterility in certain mouse hybrids.
The residents of the area are too snooty too allow the tours to drive through. Small world. But the houses are old, Victorian, and definitely did look like they either needed a lot of money or a lot of maintenance. Or both at once. Danny Ramos, on the other hand, not only sounds like, but apparently is, sex on a stick.
Possibly occasionally in his on-work time, there were a couple of moments when I wondered. Danny is a house-whisperer. Old houses tell him their secrets, and he is an expert at spinning those secrets into terrific stories that he uses to sell old houses to new owners. Expensive old houses. Danny is a real estate agent, which should not be a novel-worthy profession, except when the house is demon-raddled.
How does Danny know the house is possessed by a demon?
At first, all he knows is that the house freaks him out, really, really badly. Then, he gets introduced to the woo-woo side of his family history, and discovers that his extra-special talent at selling houses is an extra-sensory talent. Mom forgot to tell him that he comes from a very long line of mediums. Their partnership in investigating what they considered a fraudulent medium was full of action and surprises.
I would have loved to get more glimpses of the characters from book 1, but we did get a couple of brief moments with Ro Rose and Evan were great in book 2 of Meg Benjamin's Ramos Family series. I would have loved to get more glimpses of the characters from book 1, but we did get a couple of brief moments with Rose's mom, Deidre. Skag was a new character to the series, and boy was he a character!
I loved his sarcasm, his charm, and his overall contribution to this book. Where this book fell a bit flat for me was in the paranormal aspects. I enjoyed Rose and Skag's interactions, but the demonic and spirit animal aspects of this book were a bit far-fetched. If you enjoy paranormal romance, you should still give this book and this series a try. Sep 12, Nikki Barrett rated it it was amazing.
Or see one? Okay, it's no secret I'm a sucker for a good story that involves a ghost.. And I've also been a fan of Ms.
Benjamin's work, so hey, what a combination! And I certainly wasn't disappointed. Now, I'll admit, I haven't read the first one, because this is the first I've heard about them. Wait, what? How could that be? Well, no matter now, because I'm onto your little secret! I absolutely enjoyed this 4. I absolutely enjoyed this book! It has the right amount of mystery, humor and romance that kept me turning the pages, eager to know more. I'm loving this! Yep, so I'm going to have to go back and grab the first one and devour that, too.
Rose is a great leading character, and I loved the insight on her life and her new venture. Benjamin's writing style is easy to follow and very enjoyable, so i always find myself lost in her stories. This one was no different. I love that she's taken a new venture into a bit of a paranormal feel and I can't wait to see what's next. Notice the two important words Nope, nada, and not sorry about it.
Sep 13, Elizabeth Alsobrooks rated it really liked it. Medium Rare is well written, but even more important is the fact that it's interesting. The premise is different from most romance suspense novels, even from the paranormal categories. Readers who look for page-turning suspense and realistic characterization will gravitate to this story. Though it's book two of a series, it works very well as a stand alone. Ghosts, puffy-haired mediums and things that go bump in the night, move over. There's a new ghost-hustler in town.
Her name is Rose, but don Medium Rare is well written, but even more important is the fact that it's interesting. Her name is Rose, but don't let that sweet name fool you. She's no shrinking wall flower.

I suppose this novel should be labeled paranormal, but it is so much more. It was Romantic Suspense at it's finest. This book is the second in a series, but stands alone quite well.

Sep 11, Dalene rated it really liked it Shelves: reviewed First, I would like to thank the author Meg Benjamin for giving me this book for an honest review. I loved this story, it pulls you in from the beginning and keeps you turning the pages to find out what happens next. Rose is a very likable character, Evan was a strong male character and Scag could be funny if not irritating to Rose.
