Used by Kate Lynne

Amazon | Amazon Author Page


The name’s V. I’m beautiful in every sense of the word physically. But on the inside, I’m a black pit.  

If you’re expecting a happily ever after, a white picket fence and 2.5 kids; then this isn’t the story for you.

There aren’t any happily ever afters in the works for me or those whose lives I poison.

I hold the key to my pleasure and I’ll be damned if I ever give it up again.

God forsake those that stand in my way of ultimate gratification.

You may regret me, but you’ll never forget me.

Use or Be Used, there are no other options.

After checking out the blurb, I dug in.  The first chapter started out pretty exciting.  V had gotten over on some unfortunate fellow and was leaving from the West Coast to New York.

After chapter one, I felt like someone interrupted the flow of the story, inserted some cheesy porno music….

and V, along with the other two characters, Savage and Eryn, turned into porno all stars.

Just deem this porn on paper for the next few chapters. There is so much emphasis on the sex acts that the narrative starts getting lost in the shuffle.

The author must have sort of realized it as well because then V has a flashback just as when she’s about to leave.  This “sudden flashback” sets the tone for the remainder of the action in the story.

For me, it takes away from the effectiveness of V’s character.  It makes me wonder (if and when there are more stories about V) if that type of action is her signature m.o.  I am really hoping it isn’t because this twist makes her seem more sloppy than sophisticated with her motives and movements.



At the end, the author decides to reintroduce Savage and Eryn.  I think the flow of the story could have been improved if their points of view (thoughts) were interwoven throughout V’s narrative.

One example was when Savage stumbled upon Eryn and V.  His internal thought process would have been wonderful to place in that section.

Another example was when Eryn and V were looking at each other. Eryn’s thoughts would have been great at this point, too.

For me, these segments being placed at the end served as a replay of already recurring action.

Although I didn’t mind the dirty talk, there are some who may think that it went into extreme overkill.

However, I do have to give pointers for continuous action and there being barely noticeable errors in spelling and grammar.

Unleashed verdict:  Overall, I rate this a 5 out of 10.


It’s not for those who were expecting a thriller with a true V for Vendetta type feel, but could serve useful for those who wanted a thriller disguised as a porno with a cheesy plot.

This concludes the Kindle Random Robin and this segment of The Review Board.  All likes, shares, and subscribes are welcomed!
