Summary

A new dark romance from New York Times best-seller Anna Zaires.

He came to me in the night, a cruel, darkly handsome stranger from the most dangerous corners of Russia. He tormented me and destroyed me, ripping apart my world in his quest for vengeance.

Now he's back, but he's no longer after my secrets.

The man who stars in my nightmares wants me.

Obsessively Addictive

My first read by Anna Zaires was not a disappointment. A dark read following Peter Sokolov, a Russian intelligence agent who turns rogue following the death of his wife and child. Five years later, while still avenging his family’s death he comes across Sara Cobakis, and not in a nice romantic way - far from it. Peter cannot get Sara out of his mind and Sara, even though she knows it is so so wrong cannot stop thinking about her torturer in an inappropriate way, so when he forces his way back into her life she has to do everything in her power to do the right thing. I loved the writing, dual POV and lots of emotional drama and sexy time. I loved the characters, and I’m not sure what it says about me, but I completely understood and empathised with Sara. I’m loving dark reads at the moment and this is up there with the best of them. Beautifully narrated by Tracy Marks and Sebastian York, although I must say that Sebastian’s attempt at a Russian accent was not consistent. That aside, it did not affect my enjoyment of this audiobook.

Not my normal

First of all the narration on this book.is excellent Tracey does a angst female really well and Sebs Russian delivery si oh so sexy
I was not aware it's not a standalone as I personally prefer to listen when I have the whole series so am looking forward to the next and keep my fingers crossed it's the same narrators.
This is my first listen of Anna Zaires and it won't be the last I can't map where this book is going to go so it has me intrigued

Sebastian York is the highlight

Anna Zaires is the queen at writing dark romance. Twist me was the first book I had read of hers, and whilst utterly disturbing and like nothing I had ever read before, she hooked me. Lucas Kent from the Capture Me trilogy is one of my favourite book boyfriends. Sebastian york as the male narrator for this book lured me, he is awesome and Tormentor mine is no exception! If you like Anna's work then definitely give this a read. I'm not going to lie, I didn't feel this was the most powerful of love story, but it is a good book nonetheless.

Tormentingly flat

Any additional comments?

All credit to the narrators, their performance keeps the interest going long after the story line has devolved into tedium. The two protagonists appear to have nothing on which to base their dramatic relationship apart from a recent lack of sex and there are too few additional characters to dilute all the intervening querulous self doubt and brooding. There are some truly engaging "dark" romances out there (seek out a copy of Elizabeth Walker's Dark Sunrise), unfortunately, despite the sterling effort of the narrators, this isn't one of them.

Exciting read!

Peter Sokolov broke her to get the information he needed leaving tragedy in his wake. Now he's back and he wants her. Will she be able to resist this dark, sexy Russian. We first met Peter in the Twist Me series by Anna Zaires, where he was given a list of names of the men responsible for the massacre of his wife and son. This is his revenge. You won't want to miss this exciting read!

LOVE it but now what...cliffhanger alert

What did you love best about Tormentor Mine?

I love that the story started out dark and it never stopped. There was glimpses of light through the way that Peter cared for Sara and the way that their relationship developed in the story but overall the storyline is dark. The book tugs at your heartstrings and makes you feel for both characters from the very beginning and pulls you in. This is my first Anna Zaires book and I will be going back to get more of hers after this one.

Have you listened to any of Tracy Marks and Sebastian York ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I love both of these narrators however this is the first Sebastian York performance that I have listened to where he has used an accent. Overall I think he did a good job trying a Russian accent. It did fade at times but it didn't distract me from the story overall and I wouldn't doc any stars from it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

While I wanted to listen to this in 1 sitting I wasn't able to listen to it in 1 sitting due to having little ones. I listened to it in 2 sittings on a Saturday. I devoured every minute of it and couldn't put it down.

Any additional comments?

CLIFFHANGER alert and book 2 is not out yet so you can't even read the book if you wanted to so for those who don't like cliffhangers and unresolved storylines you may want to wait until book 2 is out later this year. I myself can't wait until book 2 is out to hear "the rest of the story".

SPECTACULAR STORYTELLING

Absolutely compelling from the start.. this psychologically dark story consumed my free hours, my busy hours and the hours I was meant to be asleep.. because where could I have stopped, paused or broken the wicked torment? Could it of been when Peter Sokolov, the heartbroken Russian Assassin, prayed, through his agony and rage, for a miracle as he frantically searched the mutilated pile of bodies for his little family?.. nope no way. Could it have been when, a few years and bodies later, innocent Dr. Sara Cobakis was brutally tortured by Peter for her husband’s whereabouts because he’d sworn revenge and retribution on all involved?.. OMG it was tense and, again, no way.. not even close. Well could it have been when Peter’s irrational obsession with Sara took a devastating turn for her when the dangerous sexy alpha suddenly infiltrated her life spinning it off it’s axis into a nightmare of emotional turmoil as she battled terror, guilt, loss, a feeling of wrongness, shame, self-loathing, want, need and lust?.. nope, not a chance of stopping it now.

And, as Peter’s sick fantasy world played out, he pampered Sara, became her protector, spoilt and tempted her.. and had created a dark relationship forged from death, violence, vengeance, heartbreak and pain.. but he had also become the Monster Sara feared most of all. Because, behind the sweet words and tender feelings Peter had for Sara, this wanted Assassin, and his team, were international killers for hire.. they were at the top of the food chain.. and he was dragging Sara into his dangerous world.

Spectacular writing by Anna Zaires because she instantly drew me in then insanely provoked feelings of empathy and love for the orphan, the grief-stricken father, the guilt-ridden widower and even the cold-blooded Assassin within this multi-layered hot anti-hero. She had me on a rollercoaster of feels as the strong but powerless heroine was mind fkd, fkd and worshipped over and over again. The pace and painting of the unfolding story was perfect, the sex scenes were hot and, IMO, it thankfully never reached dark enough to get uncomfortable. I’m so glad it was told in dual POVs and that two very talented and much loved narrators got to bring these characters, and their journey, to life.

Worth a credit? Well, I think you know what my answer’s gonna be.. but, if there’s any doubt, I’m mentally standing, clapping and shouting “YES... YES... YES”.. but I’m also pulling my hair out as I scream “OH NO... NO... NO” because this is a Trilogy folks.

Captivating!

Anna Zaires did it again! Once again, I have fallen in love with another series and two more characters.

Peter and Sara's story hooked me from page 1 and never stopped. I think this may be my favorite set of characters that Zaires has written.

I truly enjoyed both performers, and would listen to more of their work. Narrators can easily make or break a story, and these two truly brought it to life.

Epic Story

If you could sum up Tormentor Mine in three words, what would they be?

Hot Russian Spy

What other book might you compare Tormentor Mine to and why?

NA

Have you listened to any of Tracy Marks and Sebastian York ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I buy a lot of Sebastian Yorks books. First time listening to Tracy Marks.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes it was.

Any additional comments?

I really loved this book. Sebastian York is stellar as always. Even with a slight Russian accent his voice is pure silk, 5 stars all the way. THAT being said, Tracy Marks was just OK for me. She reads her part WAY TOO FAST. When she started reading her first chapter I literally grabbed my iPhone and checked the reading speed thinking it had somehow got set to 125% reading speed instead of the regular 100%. She really needs to slow down. Since this was my 1st book narrated by her I'm not sure if this is her usual speed of reading or not. It was as if there was a time limit to how long she had to read. (Maybe there was, IDK). Unless she pairs with SY again, I probably won't listen to one another one of her books! It was that annoying for me! If this team reads the next book in the series I will definitely buy/listen. It's worth putting up with the way-too- fast reading by TM to listen to the soothing voice of SY. Just sayin'!

Loved the story. Performance of Sebastian York was great. Was disappointed in Tracy Marks performance she needs to slow down a bit.

Obsessive Stalker Much?

This is my first Anna Zaires book and I'm now searching her catalogue because I'm hoping this is the first of many. Both Sarah and Peter were dealing with a lot pain and anguish and they were both just trying to come out on the other side. Peter had a darkness driving him and Sarah was searching for the light -- match made in heaven right? Their shared connections should have made them coupling a no go from the start but some people don't accept no for an answer. Although the story continues, it doesn't leave with a cliffhanger that keeps you awake at night wondering what happens next. It's the kind of cliffhanger that leaves you curious and intrigued about how this story will end.

The narration was really good. I liked that Sebastian York actually tried with an accent, albeit a slight Russian accent (which is what the story called for) that seemed to appear and disappear at will. I loved listening to this story so much that I give the performance 5 stars even if it was flawed.

Absolutely worth a credit plus more. Anxiously awaiting the next book in the series.

I didn’t expect to love this book as much as I did but it was so captivating and a sickness at the same time. He wanted her so bad and she thought she want something normal but... Wow this one was beyond expectations. Enjoy! Great narration.

Great story!

This was very enjoyable. However, even though SY did his usual wonderful narrating, the female narrator sounded as if she was purposely trying to read as fast as possible. That was quite distracting. I also did not like the ending and the fact that I have to wait for and buy another book in order to hear the rest of the story.

Lives up to previous raves!!!

REALLY looking forward to next in series. This is my first Anna Zaires book but won't be my last. Know that quiet excitement when you discover a very special storyteller? Anticipation! One note on the audio - please more of the Peter narration. The male performer's deep voice, accent and inflections were perfect casting!
