Review: Grabbed By Vicious by Lolita Lopez...BEST OF THE BEST Rating...

Just take a minute and absorb all that is Vicious!! ;)
Grabbed by Vicious (Grabbed, #1)
Hallie has never run so fast in her life. One of the frightening sky warriors from the warship Valiant is hot on her heels and intent on capturing her as his new bride. He takes her down and places his collar around her neck. With one word, he claims her.


Born and bred for the military, Vicious has spent the last twenty-four years rising through the ranks. This dark-haired sprite ensnared him with one glance. Now she is his reward.

Despite her fear of Vicious, Hallie surrenders under his skillful hands and mouth. Vicious makes a promise to her. If she’ll submit to him, she’ll know only pleasure and comfort. After a lifetime of hardship, his offer tempts her greatly.

One night with Hallie and Vicious feels his protective instincts flaring. He’ll do anything to make her happy and keep her safe, even if that means surrendering his heart. Though he intended to master her, Vicious realizes it may be his sweet Hallie who masters him.

Inside Scoop: Our heroine endures trials and violence with strength equal to that of her warrior mate. (She also witnesses F/F play, and endures a collar and light BDSM. Fortunately she likes that part.)
I will be honest and say that the whole draw of this book for me was the cover!! (Can you really blame me??) lol  The cover drew me in but the blurb is what held my interest and made me want to read it.  

I had never heard of Lolita Lopez prior to seeing this book so I had no idea what to expect and quite honestly because I had never heard of her, I wasn’t really expecting that much.  And this is what I LOVE so much about reading. WOW...Just WOW...I was so totally blown away by how ABSOLUTELY FREAKING AWESOME Grabbed By Vicious was. It always amazes me when I find new-to-me authors and give them a try and they surpass all of my expectations and I wonder why I haven’t heard of them before.  After reading Grabbed By Vicious, I was on a mission to read everything that I could get my hands on from Lolita.  And what is so FREAKING FANTASTIC about Lolita Lopez is that she also writes under Roxie Rivera and the books under that name are just as FREAKING AWESOME (more on those books to follow)!! I was one happy girl and Lolita/Roxie is my new reading obsession!! lol

I was sucked into the story right from the first page. It is so wrong but I LOVED the idea that if  Vicious “grabbed” Hallie~she was his and if she was able to outrun him and reach the safe zone she would be free. Of course I love that she almost made it but he caught her at the last minute and his pleasure in the fact that she had challenged him so much and he actually had to work hard to grab her. This book was so much fun to read and I just fell in love with the characters immediately. And the sex scenes between Vicious and Hallie..OMG...SO FREAKING HOT!! My laptop was overheating!! (oh maybe that was just  

Vicious and Hallie were such a great couple and I loved the fact that after Hallie got over her initial fear of being “grabbed” that she excepted Vicious easily and he did the same of her.  She was able to quickly see that he was a good man and not at all what she had feared him to be and he just wanted to make her happy. I loved the fact that her life actually improved because of him.  I love how their misunderstandings were not dragged out but resolved quickly and how Hallie really did make Vicious want to be a better man for her. I also loved that Hallie was able to bring to light changes that needed to be made for his people.

This story had everything including some great secondary characters that I cannot wait to get their own books. Menace and Terror especially!! Oh and the names just killed me and I absolutely loved when Hallie found out Vicious’s name. So funny.  I was so entertained by Grabbed By Vicious that I never wanted it to end. I cannot say enough about this book and the writing of Lolita Lopez. I am by far one of her biggest new fans.


A definite keeper and reread and a definite buy in paperback.
