  1. I ve got to say that I wasn t a very big fan of Aryal going into this story She was very much a harpy like her Wyr form Always on the attack and fierce Her obsession with Quentin s crimes was frustrating This book allows us to get to know her While she is those things I ve mentioned, she is also loyal and determined She is compassionate and selfless We really got a shot at seeing her from a different perspective and underneath the layers Quentin was fighting demons of his own One of which was an [...]


  2. I wasn t expecting to enjoy this book because I didn t like Aryal going into this book I wonder how many people s reviews will start with this but this book shot right into my top three favorite in the series, along with Dragon Bound and Oracle Moon This is one I ll definitely be re reading What particularly worked for me was the progression of the relationship that the author took us through, but also that she didn t make the hero so uber likeable that the heroine became some unlikeable bitch S [...]


  3. Kinked, book 6 in Thea Harrison s Elder Race Series actually turned out to be a surprise A good surprisee I wasn t look forward to Aryal s story She has not been a favorite of mine in the series I found her surly, abrasive, domineering fact, totally unlikeable By the end of the booke had hooked her claws into med I actually liked her Not that she became a tamed harpy Sentinelt in a million years.but somehow she just grows on you She didn t fit the concept of what a modern female should be like, [...]


  4. Two of Dragos Sentinels tearing things upaka Aryal and Quentin.Likes I loved the enemies to lovers theme Aryal and Quentin were sooo funny when they were fighting I don t know why I m always surprised at how TH can make her characters come alive and endear themselves to you.cially characters you didn t really care for before The bargaining was great The wings Awwat was sooo touching and heart breaking I love how everyone came out at the end I loved how honest Aryal wasd her promise She really su [...]


  5. Aryal and Quentin Can you control her Of course I can control her, said Quentin nastily Every time she lets me Quentin Caeravorn is the winner of the Sentinel Games that took place during Lord s Fall Dragos needed new sentinels after Rune and Diago abandoned him to ve with their mates and Quentin the panther will be the newest member of his little army Aryal is a harpy and a Drago s sentinel for many many years It is not easy for her to accept Quentin whom she also hates for her own reasons Mayb [...]


  6. Best non Dragos book of the series Those two were epic The fights between them physical and verbal , the chemistry, the dialogue Perfect Though, I wish we could ve seen that last bargain, one day for him and one day for her but oh well D


  7. I was hesitant going into this novel because Aryal wasn t my favorite character in previous books to be honest, I down right disliked her I m happy to say I worried for nothing The book was phenomenal This book is darker and gritty than the previous ones, but it didn t feel forced or unnecessary I would almost say I love this as much as Dragon Bound and Oracle s Moon my favorites of the series to date.


  8. SpoilersI was so excited for this, I thought it would be brilliant because the heroine Aryal was a favourite of mine from earlier books Unfortunately, the hero Quentin was rubbish and ruined the whole book The plot wasn t all that great either What s what Aryal immortal harpy Dragos s sentinel and Quentin wyr panther one of Dragos s new sentinels Pia s friend hate each other Their mutual hatred of each other turns into violence As punishment they re banished, forced to work together, and given a [...]


  9. According to the reviews and ratings so far I m the only one that hasn t loved this book I hated it The only reason I skimmed to the end was so that if anything actually happened I d know about it for book 7 I have LOVED this series, but I hated this one I didn t go into it hating Aryal, like so many others, and I don t hate her now I wanted to be invested in this couple But I wasn t So here s my list of issues 1 Nothing happens the first half of the book except one fight and lots of sex Not my [...]


  10. I m not going to lie, I think a huge part of me didn t want to like this book before I actually started reading it, of course But Thea Harrison s writing gives me a lady boner okay, Dragos and a couple of the other males in her novellas do the trick but you get my point.Because when I saw that this was Aryal s book Blah I wouldn t be surprised if that was everyone s reaction at first And then I started reading it and here I am I loved it Ms Harrison managed to turn a character that I was not a f [...]


  11. KINKED is an entertaining, aggression filled ride Read this review in its entirety at Fresh Fiction


  12. 3 1 2 Stars It took me until about the 50% mark to really get into this one But once I did, I enjoyed it Happy reading


  13. This is a review of the audiobook Sophie Eastlake s narration is growing on me She gets a little monotone sometimes, but she is improving with this series.Okay I liked this installment of the Elder Races series Enjoyed it, in fact However, I sure waffled on it a bit before I got there Some people are going to love these two Sentinels to Dragos, Lord of the Wyr I mean, they really hated each other at the beginning To the point where I thought they were quite mean to one another, in both thought a [...]


  14. Aryal is a harpy and a Bitch but I liked her and really enjoyed seeing she didn t change I loved Quen in previous books and liked him even in his own book


  15. Quentin has won a position as a Sentinel for Dracos fair and square, but Aryal knows he s a criminal and he s been doing bad things for a long time Aryal never stops to think that she might be wrong Unfortunately her vendetta against him has gotten to the point where she s driving herself mad trying to figure out what he s done This leads her to peek in on him at home one night, and he isn t alone Quentin can scent that Aryal was at his place And he can tell it was while he was with the woman wh [...]


  16. Love, love, love this book These Elder Race books, I think, are the ones I most look forward to a new book on Unlike every other review I ve seen, I had no problem whatsoever with Aryal being a heroine and have absolute trust that this author could pull it off In fact when I found out, I rubbed my hands together and thought, oh, yeah, this ll be good, bring it on So my trust was not misplaced and I adored this book Made me laugh, cry, laugh and cry I especially loved the ending The hero was perf [...]


  17. I was fully prepared to give this a 1 start rating until the last chapter The last scene of the book bumped it up to 2 This book was slow Really slow Not a lot happened and what did happen was separate from the Wyr community and the other Sentinels, which bummed me out as they are my favorite aspect of the series.Also, I didn t feel that connected to Quentin and Aryal I didn t dislike them or anything In fact, I kind of just didn t care about them either way Not a good way to feel about the main [...]


  18. Audiobook narrated by Sophie Eastlake The series has proven to be uneven for me Enemies to lovers isn t a favorite theme of mine and I knew I was in trouble when the h h started physically assaulting each other with intent to kill Gee, call me crazy, but not a promising setup for romance The I hate you theme dominates the first half of the book and I hated it Second half was decent but by that time I didn t find either one of them at all heroic or even interesting And I don t believe that the ne [...]


  19. 4 stars Gosh I don t believe the last time I read the latest instalment of Elder Races is like 4 years ago It s a wonder that I still remember the story, which I didn t So I did a little bit re read of Lord s Fall, just the last part tho, to refresh my memory I remember one of the reason I hesitate to read the next book after Lord s Fall, Kinked, is because I didn t like Aryal, the harpy sentinel It s because she always act hostile toward Pia So full of hatred And I m not alone Many readers see [...]


  20. Sixth in the Elder Races paranormal romance series and revolving around the Wyr based in New York City The couple focus is on Quentin Caeravorn and Aryal.My TakeI do like Aryal, even if she obsesses way too much about Quentin She s primal, woman, and knows her own mind She s tried everything and I mean everything I like Quentin too I like the his regret, and that he s trying to make amends for what he set in motion What I didn t care for was the attempt to drag in the readers with the BDSM angle [...]


  21. Keeping it short and sweet here.Is this book good Yes.Did I like the MC together Yes, they are highly amusing when they were antagonizing one another and after they put their vendetta s aside and started to work together I loved it even What about the heroine She is a crazy bitch who is always in on everything and does everything 100 % Aryal is a harpy and she is loyal to a fault and loves to hold a grudge my kinda gal What about the Hero Holy smoke balls Quentin is fantastic and he put up with [...]


  22. Amazing I was not sure if I would like Aryal s story I hated her from the moment I meet her in Dragon Bound She is such a bitch with a capital B and the way she treats Pia Ahhh Wow, Thea changed my mind on her character with this novel.Kinked blew me away I loved the humor, action, adventure, and the massed up love connection between Quentin and Aryal The main characters complement each other and it worked beautifully I see Aryal in a new light now.The Elder Races series is one of my favorite pa [...]


  23. Review to come but I really liked this and here s some random thoughts for now I love enemies to lovers when the transition is done well, and for me it was Lot s of good steamy stuff I was a little worried about the kink coming into this because BDSM is not my thing at all, but those elements were really on the outskirts of the story and could have easily been left out The struggle between two dominant control freaks was the important part and didn t really need the trendy label I liked that eve [...]


  24. 4.5 5 5 stars AAryal has always been a raging hag throughout this series Well, not a hag, a harpy She has been portrayed as loyal to Dragos and very strong, worthy of the Sentinel position, but also hard to like I went into this book wondering how Harrison was going to make a PNR story work with Aryal as the heroine Well, she did it by teaming her up with an equally strongwilled and slightly twisted hero, Quentin I really enjoyed this book Every addition to the series has a fresh feel and the st [...]


  25. 4 5 4 stars A This review is for the audiobook I read this book last year some time and recently listened to the audio version Sophie Eastlake is again, an awesome narrator However, the audio version of the book highlighted some issues with the pacing of the story The first half is kind of boring and repetitive.Aryal hates Quentinpicks a fight, Quentin fights back Quentin hates Aryal Blah, blah There was a lot of time devoted to them finding some kind of footing for a working relationship Once t [...]


  26. From the GoodReads QA Thea wrote I ve just finished writing Aryal s story, which is book six, and I ve plotted stories through book nine More can be found here I m actually looking forward to her book, she s such an awesome character.Can t wait D



  27. Although this wasn t one of fav couples of the series, we did get some moments with Dragos, Pia and Peanut which I never get enough of I adore this series and can t wait for the next one.


  28. Joint Review originally posted here thebookpushers 2013 11 05 1 Thoughts on the HeroMinnChica Oh man Quentin I think he might be one of my new favorite heroes in this series If course, I think I say that about every hero Harrison has written But seriously, Quentin was so amazing I loved that he wasn t afraid to fight with Aryal, even pound on her in the beginning To go from literally wanting to kill her, to falling head over hells not even a week later was so great Watching as his opinion of her [...]


  29. When you think I read a book with a harpy and I loved it, I cannot believe it So, when I read that this story was about Quentin I was happy Quentin has been a favorite of mine since the very start But then I read that Aryal was in the same book and I thought bleah Aryal was not a favorite character of mine But as the story was developing I loved her and because of her integrity and her honesty, a hard core of goodness that made my heart melt.Quentin was a hero for me because of his love for Pi [...]
