    As per the blurb, there is a crime to be solved, and Kelsey Owens wants to use her role as the Nex Aparatus and her PI skillset to solve it. She also has a vendetta going on with Nemcox - aka Stewart, aka Matthew - and I was on her side because that demon has just pissed me off throughout. Part of the vendetta means using magic to summon him, normally having a demon's name means you can call him to hand but demons have contracts with loopholes in...

    I'm not normally a fan of paranormal romance, but in the Thieves series, Lexi Blake sweeps the reader along in a tour de force of delightful characters, complex plots, and tender romance, sweetened with a sprinkle of humor. In addition, we have angels, demons, vampires, shifters, and possibly other out of this world creatures, living on different planes, but intersecting on earth. Sleeper is the third entry in the series that deals with Kelsey, t...

Coming into her own powers, Kelsey is determined to be her own person and do what she feels needs to be done despite what her superiors and handler tell her. When her past love comes back into the picture Kelsey will find that problems of the past are nothing com...

    BEST PARANORMAL ROMANCE SERIES OUT THERE!I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this INCREDIBLE SERIES! But, I will try...only for you. Please excuse my rambling, because there will definitely be excessive amounts of rambling on my part. You’ve been warned...First of all, as you know, Lexi Blake is one of my FAVORITE AUTHORS - whether she is writing PNR, Romantic Suspense, Erotic Romance - it doesn’t matter because she is queen of a...

    I waited years for this follow up? I'm a bit let down. Waffling between a 3 and 4, I've decided on a 3.5. Kelsey is back and it's a train wreck. It's like everything she does is the bloody hard way. Why can't it be where she isn't so pigheaded? What is wrong with working with others? She takes lone wolf to a whole other level. And the men she is in love with. Marcus is the one who saved her and yet she aggravates him to a point that he has to wal...

     It is finally here! I binge read the rest of this series and have been itching to get my hands on Sleeper. This book doesn’t let down for a second.Side note, I need to gush a little on how perfect Lexi’s titles for this series are. They are spot on. By the time you finish the book you have a huge BING moment where it clicks.All the drama in this book. The romance heat up and while some relationships fare through it, others have run their co...

    4.25 stars. This book was so much better than the first two books in the series! This is the continuation of Kelsey Owens story. In this book, Kelsey finally comes into her own. She is comfortable with who she is and what her purpose is. I really began to love her character. She has grown so much since book 1. Kelsey is badass and she fights for what is right, standing up for the little people and for herself. She has found her own friends and fa...

    I fell head first into Lexi Blake’s Hunter/Thieves series about 3 weeks ago when I agreed to review an ARC of her latest book, Sleeper. With Sleeper book 3 in the Hunter spin-off series and most definitely not a standalone, I had to catch up. Honestly, I couldn’t read them fast enough once I got started. And, to say I had no idea what I was getting myself into is an understatement.First, I think it’s important to recognize that this book an...
  • Bambi Unbridled
    I'm very greedy for this series, to the extent that I did an entire series re-read last year and then bought the whole series from Lexi at the RT Convention. So I did a happy dance when I saw we had a new installment coming out this month. And, seeing as I got the ARC on my birthday... happy birthday to me!!!As this is an urban fantasy series, you really need to read all the earlier books before embarking upon Sleeper. There are new storylines fo...

    I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. I’m now totally obsessed with this series! In this third book, we see Kelsey continue to come into her powers as she attempts to prevent an apocalyptic war between heaven, earth and hell. This third book has a little less action and focuses a little more on the political maneuvering between various groups - though it ends with a spectacular battle. In this story, Kelsey moves ...

    Life as a Hunter is never easy. There are so many hurdles that face Kelsey. The biggest is dealing with the men that possess her heart. One is a demon and the other a vampire. What could be wrong with that? Apparently a lot when you are pulled from both directions. Kelsey can’t help feel for Gray and Marcus. Both have played such a huge part in her life…..well, up until now.Heaven and Hell are at odds and Kelsey is doing her best to stop an a...

    I like the first two Hunter series books, but not as much as I enjoyed Thieves. Well, with this book (Sleeper) I can say it is up there as equal favourite for me with the Thieves book #3 in this whole series. What a great read!!! I couldn't put it down, even reading it at work and at 2am. I can't wait to see where the story goes in book #4!!! I love Kesley and her men, and I love Zoey - she can totally be my Queen :D
  • Misty
    So many things happened in this book!First off, Kelsey and Marcus broke up. I was waiting for it, expecting it and yet it was sad. That moment when she goes into his arms for comfort and can't find it, was very sad. I'm happy they parted as friends though and he was always there when Kelsey needed him. I like that Marcus confided in her too, talking to her about the girl in the painting. They are friends, they care for each other. It's bitterswee...

    MY REVIEW:It been awhile since I had read a Thieves novel, but as I began to read SLEEPER, I was happy to say I had some, "Oh yeah" moments. There are things with ARCS that can bug you and you don't know whether to make note of them or not. I had one of those with this book. It was a word. I hadn't remembered it from before, which tells me it is either a word used by Blake for editing to fix, or something she wanted Kelsey to think/say. I am hopi...

    I am a huge fan of Lexi Blake and her paranormal books. The Thieves series is hands down on of my favorite. Sleeper is the best book of Hunter series. Kelsey really comes into her own. She seems to find her groove and gets her place in the world. She is comfortable with who she is and what her purpose is for everyone involved. I really began to love her character. She has grown so much since book 1. Kelsey is a true badass and she never stops fig...

    This book's turn to be read came around, finally. I love this series, but had found a lot of other books that I also love, so it's been a few months since I read any of this series. Lexi Blake's heros and heroines are some of the most angsty and tortured characters I read. I just can't put them aside because they feed something in me that needs to be fed. This time our Nex Apparatus, Kelsey, is facing a very difficult task, again, and is about to...
  • Catherine Rivera
    I waited quite a bit for this installment to come out and it was worth it. I originally had to stop reading it when it came out and wait until I had a chance to go back and read Addict to refresh my memory of what was going on. Having Gray, Kelsey, Trent, Donovan, Dev and Zoey (who continues to be one of my favorite characters) back was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, I have to wait a while until the next story. No matter, I like where Lexi's headin...

    I feel like when you’ve just gotten off of a roller coaster and you’re still pumped out with adrenaline. I have not so patiently been awaiting this release. I was like a little kid hyped up on sugar. I literally devoured this book. I picked it up and didn’t put it down not even to eat. This book had so many twists and turns. She threw me for a loop. In this story the trio is not whom I expected it to be comprised of. I felt so bad for the o...

    Well I have done it again. I was expecting my usual Lexi Blake affair without reading the synopsis and I end up with a bizarre paranormal/werewolf/ vampire/every magical creature you have heard of story.It was actually a great story and I did really enjoy it however there were a couple of downsides.One) there were that many different characters who were all different species I did find it hard to keep track.Two) slight cliffhanger - don't like th...

    The third in the Hunter series, Sleeper continues the story of Kelsey Owens and her tenure as Nex Apparatus. She serves to keep the Earth plan safe. Her relationship with her mentor, Marcus, is waning as she is learning her role quickly. In this installment, Kelsey learns more about her wolf heritage and opens herself to accepting her wolf’s needs. This book is all about girl power and bonding. There is romance but, there’s a lot more going o...
  • Irihapeti Ariana
    I honestly LOVED the thieves series with the action, romance and plot twists! Which made me so disappointed in the hunters book series. I felt like the romanced was so rushed between Kelsey, Gray and Trent. And the fact that Kelsey and Marcus didn’t work out makes me even more disappointed. I really wanted to read more about him and even though it mentions he will eventually find his “true love” it won’t be told from their prospectives......
  • Marie Pedrick
    An amazing story of vampires, werewolves, demons and angels. An epic battle and an unfortunate love triangle. Meet Kelsey the nex apparatus, the love of her life Grey, the dark prophet and Trent her werewolf protector.The angels have lost a sacred sword and the demons are using it to start a war. Follow the story of how Kelsey has to sort it out to stop the war that could kill all of human kind. I can’t wait till the next instalment I hope it...

    Superb!Okay I cried again! Somehow I get so invested in these characters their life drama wounds me a little and I cry. Very few authors can do that to me I am not a cryer. So brilliant. If you want a great shifter series this one is the top of my list. Bravo Lex love it! Write On.
