Review: Hawke by Anise Storm

Title: Hawke

Series: Men of Syn

Author: Anise Storm

Genre: Erotic

Publication Date: February 15, 2019

Arrogant. Sexy. Eerily Familiar - All were true when it came to Charlotte Maxwell's newest client in need of a party planner. She experienced deja vu the moment she met the sexy club owner, and soon realized that he was the faceless Dominant responsible for the most mortifying night of her life just one year earlier. Beautiful. Innocent. Submissive - Nathaniel 'Hawke' Hawkins knew the gorgeous blonde was off limits to him the moment he realized their connection. He'd allowed her to get under his skin once, but he was determined to hold her at arm's length this time. Of course, that was much easier said than done once passion erupts between them at the masquerade party. Addictive. Obsessive. Dangerous - While Hawke remains haunted by skeletons from his own past, Charlotte is determined to show him there is something between them. In denial about his growing attraction for her, someone much more sinister develops his own deadly obsession with Charlotte. Will Hawke be able to conquer his own demons before his potential future is taken away from him?

Hawke is opening a new BDSM club called Syn, and is working with Charolette who owns Platnium Dreams, a planning company to get the grand opening planned. But Charolette expierences Deja Vu when with Hawke. When she remembers where she knows him from, she wants to just get the job done and over with, but there is something brewing between them. Will Hawke conquer his past demons, and admit to his growing attraction to Charolette, or will she be taken from him forever?When I read this blurb, I had wanted to dive immediately into this book. BDSM, suspense, and more? What's not to love? This book started off slow, and I had a hard time getting into it being in third person. But just because it wasn't for me, doesn't mean someone else won't like it. It was still an okay read. 3⭐ out of 5⭐.

This book has been added to my all time favorite reads.


This one just didn’t appeal to me at all. That being said, it was well written. If your into BDSM reads, then this one is for you.

However, I found the main character Nathaniel Hawke, to be annoying as hell. The way he spoke to people, -“Your dismissed”. If he said that to me he would have got a kick in the cockadoodle doo.

Clearly I will never be a Sub.
