    1. Favorite Quote: –her phone chimed with an incoming text. “You…you need to let me look at that.”“I need my cock inside you, is what I need.”(damn boy!)I was hooked on this book from the first page of the prologue Which is kind of funny because when I got to the end of the book, I had forgotten about the prologue (first chapter goes back in time) and then my head kind of exploded and yeah… I loved this book.Beth Faraday has been an assassin spy since a very young age, I think making [...]

    2. It took me way too long to read this book. If you like romantic suspense, or maybe you're hankering for something with a little more action than you're used to? This book is for you, lady. You, too, sir. The characters are rich and singular. There is an intricate plot, but I was never lost for a second, because the author employed excellent timing and each character is SO recognizable by their personality, they instantly felt like old friends. The heroine is a total badass ASSASSIN and the hero, [...]

    3. This was the author’s tweet-pitch for her book: She was an assassin; now she’s retired, but a sexy MI6 agent from her past missed the memo. The price on her head doesn’t help, either.Best. Synopsis. Ever.The Good, The Meh and Everything In Between-(Brutally) Good prologue: The prologue got my attention and the story never let me go. It established the heroine, Beth, as a survivor, made you root for her and want to find out how she ended up in that situation. It really gave me a snapshot of [...]

    4. Thank you to CARINA PRESS and Netgalley for providing a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.3.5 starsBlamed is the story of two spies (one former and one current, but who can really let that life go?) who are trying to forge a relationship, but neither are sure the other can be trusted.This prologue was knock-your-socks-off fantastic. The reader is catapulted right into the middle of this story only to be yanked out again and tossed back to the beginning, but it works reall [...]

    5. Holy.AwesomenessS.I am the luckiest girl in the world. Thank you SO much to Edie for sending me an early ARC! I loooove this book. So, so much. Edie Harris' writing is so compelling. I first fell in love with The Corrupt Comte, and Blamed was no different. (In fact, better, because the genre and tone is different, yet I was sucked in to each so completely, from page one.)Assassin. Heroine. Assassins are one of my weaknesses. Badass heroines are my weakness. Everything about this situation was a [...]

    6. wowowowowI didn't expect it to be this intense. Racquel pitched this book to me as "suspense, and very romantic" and it truly is! There is so much yearning in this book it hurts; the couple has been circling each other for ten years, ffs. I love the relationship between all the Faraday siblings, I'm happy to see all of them getting books of their own.

    7. Review originally posted at fictionvixen/review-blamedRomantic suspense is tricky for me. I have a few authors I trust, but it isn’t my favorite genre. I tend to give an exasperated side eye all those ‘in the midst of danger’ sex scenes that always seem to pop up out of no where. But then Edie Harris’ new release came up for review and I’ve always adored her historicals so I thought I would give it a try. Blamed was one of those reads that had me immediately going to Twitter to give a [...]

    8. Have you or someone you’ve known ever gone into the family business? What if your family’s legacy was to be a spy or maybe an assassin or a weapons developer? Are you cut out for a career like that? Beth entered the family business as a teen, but after a deadly disaster in the Middle East, she packed up and decided she was done, out of the family business. But is that really possible? Someone may have revenge in mind.Part of Beth’s past comes walking out of the shadows, a man she thought s [...]

    9. I was SUPER into this. There are some elements that might give some of you pause (semi-graphic depiction of torture, a decade long two-sided pining relationship), and it's very much romantic suspense with an emphasis on suspense, but the hero and heroine's relationship just WORKED for me. He was just so hot. They were so hot together. I have no idea how the next book can work at all, but I am certainly curious to find out.

    10. First reviewed at Red Hot Books redhotbooks/2014/11/reviewThe blurb totally hooked me. A retired spy has to ally with another spy who just so happens to be her former lover. I was hoping for a little Mr. and Mrs. Smith love/hate. While there is an element of that, the story is much more.For the last year, Beth Faraday finally has what she’s always wanted. She’s a living a quiet life in Chicago working as a curator at the Art Institute, trying desperately to live a “normal” life. However, [...]

    11. Blamed started off very intriguing: there’s a hit out on Beth, a former assassin just trying to live a normal life. It’s obvious very early on that the story is going to be a bit outrageous and over the top. I did try the sample first which was filled with ads at the very beginning and the story not starting until 35% into the sample! Very unfair of the publisher to do this in my opinion because I didn’t get a chance to read enough of a sample to gauge whether or not this was something I w [...]

    12. Beth is a retired assassin trying to live a normal life. She has been shooting people since 16, working with her family to keep America safe. Vic is a MI-6 agent sent to kill her. Had to suspend belief here, what parent would let their child go around the world killing people? I got passed that, then there was the relationship between Beth and Vic. Both are spies and are not allowed to be together, so over time, they fall in love while working. I hate danger boner, but their interactions were de [...]

    13. *Review copy received through Netgalley*SPOILER FREE Holy Wow! This book is pretty damn awesome, and very unique. I wont go into the summary, but the story line is exciting and well developed. From start to finish, it keeps you interested. I loved Beth and her internal dialogue. She's a great heroine. Strong, kickass, funny, but vulnerable. And, well, Vick is just fucking sexy and dangerous and who doesn't love that? I enjoyed reading about the history they share, and definitely enjoyed the jour [...]

    14. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.This is my first Edie Harris novel and I must say her writing is simply compelling! I was blown away by this book from beginning to end. The way she wrote these characters, drama and plot twists were seriously a work of art.Beth is not your typical female. She's a kickass, badass, assassin. She's strong and fashionable. Becoming an assassin as a teen just makes her a deadly woman. Even after a job gone wrong she stays strong and trie [...]

    15. Excellent spy/assassin romance. I really enjoyed all the elements, from the scorching hot romance between the leads to the adorable/funny relationship between Beth and her siblings, to the intrigue and horror that was part of being a (retired?) assassin. I would have devoured this in one sitting if I hadn't been so damned busy. Took me 2 weeks to find out what would happen! Can't wait to continue the series.

    16. A super sexy spy thriller/romance. Stay tuned for a more in depth First Look at Heroes and Heartbreakers!ETA: Here is the in depth first look at Heroes and Heartbreakers!

    17. Somewhere between 3-3.5/5 stars.Ultimately I thought this was pretty good for the genre, but I could have used a little more romance and a little less suspense. Or even just a little more romance.

    18. Reviewed on my blog, Becky on Books on 12/1/14."Scarecrow" from TV's Scarecrow and Mrs. King was my first love. All that top secret, for your eyes only, I'd-tell-you-but-then-I'd-have-to-kill-you stuff has been total catnip for me ever since, as have sexy, oh-so-capable alpha spies. I. Freaking. Love. Them. So it was pretty much a forgone conclusion I was going to request a review copy of this book. First in a five-book series about a family of spies? Bring it on!Then when the author thanked her [...]

    19. First posted on Swept AWay AgainI really like Edie Harris, I've previously read The Corrupt Comte & Wild Burn and both blew me away. Which meant I had quite high expectations for Blamed but in comparison Blamed just didn't measure up for me.Blamed is a nice read, it's even an enjoyable read but it just didn't hook me in from the beginning like I wanted it to.Beth is a really great interesting character that I really liked. She's been through a lot and she's done a lot of hard things that mak [...]

    20. Beth Faraday's new life rudely comes to a halt when she learns that a hit has been placed on her, and in a series of not-entirely-believable coincidences, finds out that a man she thought she killed has been a neighbour for the past 6 months. Raleigh Vick however, still isn't all he seems, and the secrets he carries despite his convincing her that he has quit MI6, bring her back to a past that she'd rather not revisit. With flashbacks peppering the chapters, we learn of Vick's and Beth's long hi [...]

    21. I cannot tell you how excited I was when Carina Press started promoting for this book. The excerpt found on their website had me drooling to get my hands it. Spies, strong heroines, dark heroes, secrets, betrayal. This book has everything I’ve been looking for, especially with a new series I’ve been working on. I needed the research. I needed to find something close to what I write so I can get a better understanding of the romantic suspense genre.Oh, how I wish this book lived up to all tha [...]

    22. Beth Faraday started her teenage years a little different than most because at 16 she carried out her first hit for hire and since than has become on of the most feared assassins. Than one day after a job went south Beth decided to walk away and create a normal life for herself. She owns a condo, dates chefs but every night she still sleeps with a gun under her pillow. One night she realize the life she left behind has followed her to her new home and Beth is forced to flee the with follow MI6 a [...]

    23. When I saw this book on Netgalley, I totally had to have it. Female assassin from a family of spies and spooks? Oh yeah! Sign me up!I love reading about strong women who are taking on the more traditional men's roles of spy and assassin. Luckily this seems to be a growing movement, going in all directions, everything from paranormal to comedic to romantic suspense; such as this one. It had all the pieces that I expect from a romantic suspense: plenty of chase scenes, hot smexy times, shoot outs, [...]
