Review ~ You Are Mine (Nine Circles #3) by Jackie Ashenden

You Are Mine (Nine Circles, #3)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: October 6th 2015

Publisher: St Martin's Press


In the Nine Circles Club, there's a fine line between pleasure and pain, sin and salvation, heaven and hell. And it takes one bold pair of lovers to cross it...

He's master of the game.
Zac Rutherford is one of the most powerful and sought-after men in New York's private club scene. Masterful and demanding, he attracts beautiful women willing to surrender to his every whim, every desire, and every command. But Zac is in love with one woman, and one woman only. She is his true passion-and sole obsession. A glorious angel in the flesh...who refuses to be touched by any man.

She doesn't play by the rules.
Eva King owes her life to Zac. Seven years ago, he rescued her from darkness. Still, in spite of her attraction to Zac, she refuses to allow any man to touch her body, let alone her heart. But when a dangerous enemy from Eva's past reappears, Zac is the only one who can save her-if she's willing to bare her soul, shed her inhibitions, and surrender him.

My Opinion

I've been looking forward to getting near the release date of this book so I could pick it up. The premise intrigued me and it sound like it would be a hot and intense read. However, I do feel slightly let down now I've reached the end.

You Are Mine is a very mixed read for me. The parts that held my interest were brilliant. When Zac and Eva interacted and battled each other I thought the pace was good.

However, these moment were broken up by sections that I struggled with. The pace dragged a lot in this book and I did find myself skimming sections. There were too many internal thoughts and analysis for my liking. The characters repeated themselves a lot and I just wanted them to hurry up and get to where they were going. Eva and her attitude annoyed me. I understood and sympathised because of her past, but she was so stubborn it got irritating. Similarly I never grew to like Zac. He felt cold and insensitive in his actions towards Eva.

This book did pick back up for the ending. I'm not sure it was worth the wait, but it shows the potential of the author's work.

Overall You Are Mine was an okay read. It may work for you, but it dragged too much for me and the enjoyable sections weren't enough to keep my full attention.
