Book Tour Review & Giveaway: Summoned by Rainy Kaye

Summoned Button Blog Tour 500 x 375

Twenty-three year old Dimitri has to do what he is told—literally. Controlled by a paranormal bond, he is forced to use his wits to fulfill unlimited deadly wishes made by multimillionaire Karl Walker.

Dimitri has no idea how his family line became trapped in the genie bond. He just knows resisting has never ended well. When he meets Syd—assertive, sexy, intelligent Syd—he becomes determined to make her his own. Except Karl has ensured Dimitri can't tell anyone about the bond, and Syd isn't the type to tolerate secrets.

Then Karl starts sending him away on back-to-back wishes. Unable to balance love and lies, Dimitri sets out to uncover Karl's ultimate plan and put it to an end. But doing so forces him to confront the one wish he never saw coming—the wish that will destroy him.

Summoned is represented by Rossano Trentin of TZLA.

3D Summoned HB
I dislike having to murder someone. Kidnapping is worse. At least when I setup a kill, I know what's coming. No connections, no honesty, no surprises. Everything I say and do are just steps to luring in my victim. Once the victim falls right into the trap, the next move is swift: crushed windpipe, fatal concussion, or a good ol' fashioned headshot.
Kidnapping, on the other hand, is a little trickier. First, the victim has an opportunity to respond. I don't like this. Sometimes they cry. Sometimes they manage to alert the authorities. And sometimes they escape, usually by inflicting bodily harm on me.
Dead people don't retaliate.
The second major difference between killing and kidnapping is my conscience. I get in and out with a kill. We have no chance to bond.
Abductees require a little more one-on-one. As much as I try to keep the switch turned off, I can't help but listen to their pleas and demands. And I usually realize I'm a jerk.
That's exactly where I find myself one late afternoon in June. I prefer doing this at night, but moreover, I would prefer not doing this at all.
Instead, I have a belligerent nine year old girl sitting in the passenger seat of my Honda Accord, shackles on her wrists and ankles and a small stuffed bunny on her lap. She's eying me in a way that makes me self-conscious. Like I'm the bad guy.
Probably because I am the bad guy.


4.5 Stars

“Summoned” hops right into introducing the slightly wrong, harsh, but oh so sarcastic and funny personality of 23 years old Dimitri. Forced to kidnap a dangerously smart 9 year old by the whims and wish of his master, Karl, Dimitri is left with ferrying her to the mansion grounds his master and family lives on; he will not know of her fate. He’s an entrapped genie. Going to the nearest run down bar to drown his sorrows in cheap drinks, he meets the enigmatic and random Syd. What starts a steamy series of increasingly frequent sexy times turns into affection and a desire for a normal life for Dimitri.

Sent on increasingly gruesome and violent missions by Karl, Dimitri leaves Syd hanging one too many times with one too many questions unanswered. Having his heart torn out and trying to fend off the creepy, possessive claws of Karl’s daughter breaks Dimitri’s small hope of a normal life to pieces.

Suddenly, the story of Dimitri’s family’s bond to their masters’ blood lines starts to unravel and insane twists and turns shatter what little made sense to Dimitri in his life in the first place. Syd ends up back in his life, in the end rescuing him and freeing him in multiple ways. Syd and Dimitri’s families are twined together in such a twisted weave; the reader will wonder how all the knots can possibly be undone for the two of them to survive.

“Summoned” has a fun story line and raw, sarcastic characters. Be warned, this is an adult book with lots of steamy scenes.
