Summoned (Summoned, #1)Title: Summoned
Author: Rainy Kaye
Series: Summoned #1
Genre: NA Paranormal Romance
Published: March 28th 2014







Twenty-three year old Dimitri has to do what he is told—literally. Controlled by a paranormal bond, he is forced to use his wits to fulfill unlimited deadly wishes made by multimillionaire Karl Walker.

Dimitri has no idea how his family line became trapped in the genie bond. He just knows resisting has never ended well. When he meets Syd—assertive, sexy, intelligent Syd—he becomes determined to make her his own. Except Karl has ensured Dimitri can’t tell anyone about the bond, and Syd isn’t the type to tolerate secrets.

Then Karl starts sending him away on back-to-back wishes. Unable to balance love and lies, Dimitri sets out to uncover Karl’s ultimate plan and put it to an end. But doing so forces him to confront the one wish he never saw coming—the wish that will destroy him.

A dark twist on the genie folklore, SUMMONED follows a reluctant criminal as he unravels the mystery of the paranormal bond controlling him.

SUMMONED is represented by Rossano Trentin of TZLA.

Note: SUMMONED contains strong language, naughty scenes, mature content, terrible wishes, mystery, violence, discomfort, explosions, and an apple.

I have read a lot of paranormal/fantasy books over the last few years, so it is always exciting when an author can surprise me with something new, which blows me away! That is exactly what Rainy Kaye has done. She introduced me to a fun character, who has an interesting heritage that had me quickly flicking the pages as I was immersed into the action, the romance and the mystery of the story!!

As you can gather from the blurb, Dimitri is a genie. He is not one of those fun 'make 3 wishes' kind of a genie, but one that is tied to a family bloodline that must fulfil whatever tasks the head of the family desires. It was exciting to see what he had to do and what would occur to him if he didn't. It is a lonely job for Dimitri, so he tends not to develop relationships. He does, accidently, find himself in a situation that has a girl getting under his skin. A one night stand that keeps occurring and no matter how rude or weird he is, Syd keeps coming back. He keeps his genie ways hidden and tries to have as much fun as possible with her. However, back to back wishes has Dim on edge and curious as to what is going on.

I just loved Dimitri! He was fun, witty, but also deadly! He has had eight years to work on his skills and is used to getting the job done. It was sad to see him explain why he couldn't form relationships and why his life is so lonely. It doesn't stop him from picking up though… because he is a male with needs! Syd I liked too, but as neither character really opened up to each other, I didn't find out her secrets until late in the book. Dim makes her happy and it was nice to see her relax and indulge in him when she needed. These two have sizzling chemistry and when they are alone, they find it difficult not to keep their hands and lips off one another!!

Rainy introduced some great secondary characters too. Karl, Dim's boss is an evil, calculating man, and I was puzzled as to what his plans were. Karl's daughter, Silvia was a bit wacko, and one situation with her had me confused, but I understood why later on in the book.  Even though I had a couple of minor issues with the story, they were minor and took nothing away from the amazing story that I read. It had me mesmerised and I loved every minute of Summoned!! I’m excited to see what the author has planned next for this series!!
