Daniel Schwartz never meant to uncover the apocalypse, unfortunately for her that’s exactly what happened. Yet while it’s clear to the Kiwi hacktivist what she should do; cover it back up and get completely smashed, the rest of the world doesn’t agree. A shady corporation places her in a beachside prison where they promise to hold her until she agrees to talk. Dani would be pretty annoyed if she weren't:a) Biologically incapable of being annoyedb) Very intrigued by the men hired to guard herc) Extremely hungoverJohn, Colt, and Seb have poured a lot of time and money into their private security business the last thing they need is to waste six weeks babysitting a hyperactive hippie. Sadly they’ve signed a dubious but watertight contract. Each of the three men finds himself drawn to the weird, pop-obsessed Daniel and she to them. As they become entangled in each other’s lives Daniel is forced to answer some big questions such as; how can you escape when there’s nowhere safe to go? How can a commitmentphobe fall for not one, but three different men? And, most importantly, should New Zealanders kick people who call them Hobbits? (Yes.)Taunt is a heart-stopping erotic thriller; chock full of science, nail-biting suspense, period jokes and good old fashioned lust.

I vividly recall when author Skye Warren raved about this book Taunt. I hadn’t discovered Eve Dangerfield at that point but bought in on a whim. I also remember trying to read this a couple of years back and quit it because I just couldn’t take to it. So…. it’s been collecting metaphorical dust on my kindle.

Now after many moons I decided to retry, because during this time I have actually read many Eve Dangerfield books and loved them.
The verdict? Taunt was fucking fantastic in the wackiest way imaginable. I would bet that this book is not for all, but this author does it for me. Her characters are real, flawed and out of their mind nuts. The storyline unique, that I actually wonder where this author dreams up this stuff. She’s just so fucking creative that I just want to have a drink or two with her… My only criticism is that this is a long ass book (thus the 1 star deduction) because it was too wordy in places, and evidently it brings out all my foul language 🤷‍♀️

Daniel Schwartz is a hippie hacktavist who has pissed off one too many organisations and is now on the run.
Although a genius, Daniel has a condition that doesn’t allow her to feel emotion or pain. With the the mouth of a trucker it’s made her a loose cannon. Plus it doesn’t help that she uncovered a catastrophic secret.

’Daniel woke up every morning full of champagne bubbles, just wanting to float, burst and tingle. It wasn’t by choice. Her brain, through some quirky birth defect, produced superhuman levels of endorphins. Daniel waded through life on the kind of blissful high millennials chased in nightclub toilets.’

John, Colt and Seb are ex military men who have just founded their own private security company. With an offer to good to resist, they accept a six week round-the-clock security gig for a person of interest that happens to be Daniel. What they hadn’t anticipated was that Daniel was actually a girl.

They didn’t expect that their ‘prisoner’ would be stunning but also batshit crazy. Daniel would do her utmost to provoke them and plan her escape. But as time progresses their annoyance is certainly turning into lust. As they get to know Daniel her quirkiness and lack of filter makes her that more appealing.

But when Daniel puts in an official request to be ‘serviced’ all bets are off. What follows is some seriously creative sex between a willing dirty girl and 3 well equipped soldiers. Be prepared for a side of kink and lots of sharing. Fortunately they’ll go the extra mile to protect her when it counts…
