Review: Taunt - Eve Dangerfield


Daniel Schwartz never meant to uncover the apocalypse, unfortunately for her that’s exactly what happened. Yet while it’s clear to the Kiwi hacktivist what she should do; cover it back up and get completely smashed, the rest of the world doesn’t agree. 

A shady corporation places her in a beachside prison where they promise to hold her until she agrees to talk. Dani would be pretty annoyed if she weren't: 
a) Biologically incapable of being annoyed 
b) Very intrigued by the men hired to guard her 
c) Extremely hungover 

John, Colt, and Seb have poured a lot of time and money into their private security business the last thing they need is to waste six weeks babysitting a hyperactive hippie. Sadly they’ve signed a dubious but watertight contract. Each of the three men finds himself drawn to the weird, pop-obsessed Daniel and she to them. 

As they become entangled in each other’s lives Daniel is forced to answer some big questions such as; how can you escape when there’s nowhere safe to go? How can a commitmentphobe fall for not one, but three different men? And, most importantly, should New Zealanders kick people who call them Hobbits? (Yes.) 
Taunt is a heart-stopping erotic thriller; chock full of science, nail-biting suspense, period jokes and good old fashioned lust.

So I have to admit that I got burnt out on the dystopian genre pretty quick and I haven’t really read one in a while.  So when I first read the blurb for Taunt I was thinking pass.  But then…I got to thinking, was this going to be a reverse harem?  Then I had to dive in and read it.  And I got SUCKED in.  This book is action packed, full of heat and has a lot of snarky humor.  It is everything I love.

Daniel is sarcastic, snarky and kickass.  She’s also a rebel and a genius.  This leads her into a…spot…of trouble that crosses her path with three men.  John, our brooding, silent man with a kinky side; Seb, our sweet Southern boy with a heart of gold; and Colt, our flirty, alpha man who are all there to watch her as she’s imprisoned by a shady corporation.  Shenanigans and hijinks ensue that are hilarious and there’s some great witty banter that occurs.  And some amazing chemistry between all four main characters.  There is some great character development here; they are all complex characters with flaws, insecurities and abilities.  There also some great villains who appear that you just love to hate.

This book isn’t for the faint of heart, if you can’t handle ménage themes – stay away.  Is it going to be a reverse harem?  It certainly is looking that way.   And I love it. The pacing could use some work, the book dragged in some places and was perfectly paced in others.  Overall, it is a fantastic read full of ecoterrorism, the end of the world, sexy guys and a snarky and strong heroine.  I can’t wait for the next one.
