Summary

Mistress. It sounded so sordid, so impersonal, so far removed from the kind of relationship Marley Jameson had with Greek hotel magnate Chrysander Anetakis. What she thought she had. Until he abruptly broke things off between them and told her to leave his luxurious apartment.

Three months later Marley awakens in the hospital, with no memory of what happened before she got there. She can't remember her past, Chrysander...or the baby she carries. All she knows is that when Chrysander sweeps her away to his private Greek island, being with him feels like home. Even though he never speaks of love, surely his protectiveness and his desire for her prove how much she means to him. Until she remembers the truth....

I find I like the oldies but goodies best of all

I have read most of Maya Banks books, but have gone backward to this series, which I missed. It reminded me of something I have contemplated when reading her current work. It is as if there are two authors in Ms. Banks’ mind. Her early books are well organized and well written. Her later books can ramble and contain countless run-on sentences. She repeats the same thoughts and feelings repeatedly. I continue to read them out of loyalty, but I do not enjoy them as much and am sometimes disappointed. It isn’t the less steamy story which is the defining difference, as her earlier BDSM and other more erotic stories are considerably different from more recent work. I hope that there isn’t a health issue impacting her cognitive and executive functions.

This book was really well done. It wasn’t a very original theme, but that is almost the definition of the genre. I read them because they make me feel happy as this one did. I route for the characters. I count on knowing that no matter how bleak things might seem for the hero and heroine, they will work it out in the end. Life doesn’t make those as same guarantees. I think it was smart to rerelease these books, and I am glad that I read this one. Well done.

Wonderful story

This book was a delight to read. It kept you in you thinking toes. Maya Banks is really good at foreshadowing and then bringing it all back around. Great writer.

Quick listen

I’m not crazy about the narrator. The story is entertaining enough though. It’s worth a listen, just not the best you’ll ever hear.

The Missing Mistress

What a great story, drawing you into a confusing love story that really kept me on the edge of my seat. the narrator was good and love the characters. I'm definitely reading more.

Betrayal and love...

While I enjoyed the story in this audiobook, I didn’t care for the narration at all. The husky “smoker’s voice” just didn’t fit the characters I was visualizing. The heroine is falsely accused of stealing company info and selling it to the hero’s competition, thrown out of his wealthy apartment and promptly kidnapped. She hasn’t had a chance to tell him he’s going to be a father, either. He seems like a cold character at first, but I gradually warmed to his autocratic manner. When he next sees her it as she’s being rescued and reported on TV. Because of the trauma, she has amnesia so the story is complicated by that. Overall, an entertaining story..

This was such a let down!

This book has no redeeming qualities. To say I detested is an understatement. Not even worth a sale. So not worthy of Maya Banks!

Hard to believe this is Maya Banks

Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Lily Bask?

Yes, and I have. Her KGI series and Montgomerys and Armstrongs series both are great! But this is not on par with those. I stopped about a 1/4 of the way in and checked to see if this was one of those cheesy old Harlequin romance novels. But it is a 2009 copyright so maybe that's it....she was still learning her craft.

Any additional comments?

The hero is very unlikeable and he treats his mistress like crap before he finds out she's pregnant. He never gives her the benefit of the doubt on anything. He just assumes she's a thief without confronting her. Not only is that unrealistic but it shows his true character. Really the 2 had no chemistry and the character development is so thin I find I just couldn't image anything in my mind.
