Product Description

The steamy menage romcom that started it all!
"...she becomes Cinderella to three hot, dangerous criminals."
"So funny and so freaking addictive! This series is my favorite guilty pleasure!

Melinda is a small town girl trapped in a dead-end life…until three hot bank robbers take her hostage. She quickly discovers that a life of luxury hotels, heists, and kinky menages is way more exciting than working on the family farm. She should be scared of her dominating, fierce captors...but there's something wicked inside her that's craving to obey their every dark desire.

Melinda's an all-too willing captive to three smoldering sex maniacs...but is it all too good to be true? Will her delicious captors overcome their own demons enough to let her in…or is she going to end up a victim of the world's sexiest crime spree?

Named a “Best Book of the Year” at Penelope Romance Reviews & A Buckeye Girl Reads

It was not the most exciting book I've read and definitely Isis enjoyed leaving her old life behind to join the 3 God like bank robbers but I found her to be a bit of a Bimbo with not much character substance. Maybe if Annika Martin had gone into more detail earlier in the story on why Thor, Dion and Zues lived the live of criminals I would have warmed to the characters a bit more. Just ok read.

It was okay, I don't think butter is meant to be used like that, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars I fell in love with the main characters! 16 September 2016
By AKHannah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I originally read this book because the Kindle version was free and because the title told me it fit the romantic sub-genre I was looking for. What I discovered though was my new favorite series and author. A lot the free romance e-books available are written poorly and have very little plot. That's where The Hostage Bargain really shines.

It blew me away how well the three male lead characters were developed. They are all very distinct and you grow to love the quirks of each one. The book flows very naturally and it's easy to know which character said what during the dialog because their personalities shine through as distinct and separate from each other.

The plot, without giving too much away, has substance to it. I felt like it was more than just a romance novel that goes from sex scene to sex scene with nothing but fluff in between. You get to slowly uncover some of the mystery of the God Pack as you and the main character get to know them. The book then speeds towards a very climactic ending that left me staying up far too late to finish it. I highly recommend trying this book out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Omg 3 February 2017
By Amanda - Published on Amazon.com

I. Loved. This. Book. I could not put it down. The only terrible part was that it ended. This is one of the best MMMF books I've ever read. I loved the kinkiness, and the suspense. I'd give it more stars if I could! Definitely recommend. Now I'm off to read the second!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a ride! 28 October 2014
By mystery - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wow. I read a lot of books, and many leave me the moment I leave them. This one piqued my interest, and the free price tag didn't hurt either. I am happy to say that this was a HUGE surprise in a great read! I felt it had great characters that grabbed you right from the beginning and a decent (for the most part) plot. I mean, there's a bit of suspended imagination needed, but if you are reading this because you want an accurate story about bank robbers, then you hit the wrong genre of books, my friend.
The sex was hot (literally in one spot), and this story gave me the burning question that I'm sure I share with others: What if??? What if you were taken hostage by three gorgeous bank robbers, but became so turned on by them, that you'd do anything they asked?
Since most of us just can't run off like that, read this book and live vicariously through our band of Kinky Bank Robbers!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed this more than I thought from the blurb. 7 December 2016
By Lyns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I actually really enjoyed this book. I was kind of shocked cause most books with this theme just seem to get a little to far out there. This author did a great job developing this story and dragging you in. Enough so that I will have to go buy the others to finish this due to wanting to know what happens next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny, playful and scorching hot! 22 December 2014
By Stephanie (Bookfever) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Hostage Bargain was a lot better than I expected from a free Kindle book. A whole lot better! I actually ended up loving the story as it was hot, well-written and just so damn funny. So close to perfection!

The main character, Melinda, is kind of hard to explain. But don't get me wrong, I absolutely loved her and she was hilarious. She's a sheep farmer and kind of addicted to danger because she feels trapped at home, forced to work at a bank. Until that bank gets robbed and she gets taken hostage by three hot bank robbers, much to her delight. At first I was like, what? This is so unrealistic but I soon started getting more into it and loving it, obviously.

Which brings us to the bankrobbers, who call themselves Zeus, Odin and Thor. I can't explain how much I love that. Seriously! Anyway, they take Melinda hostage but she soon manages to convince them to let her tag along for a little while. There's a condition, though. She has to obey the rules. And let me say that the rules involve kinky sex, lots of it! I loved all three guys, but I guess I liked Odin the best. He and his accent are just so hot. Thor was pretty fun too. Zeus was a bit on the fence about Melinda (who calls herself Isis now) joining them due to personal issues and what happened in the past but in the end he came around.

The book isn't all sex and kink, though. It also has a lot of action, danger and of course let's not forget the humor. I laughed my ass off so many times, usually with Melinda/Isis. She was awesome and so different from the characters I usually read about, as were Zeus, Odin and Thor. Only the ending was wrapped up too quickly for me and I felt so bad for Melinda's sisters.

I would recommend not to take this book too serious. It's funny, playful and scorching hot! Sometimes you just need a book that's light and quick to read. The Hostage Bargain was the perfect book for that!
