5.0 out of 5 stars One of Devine's best 1 Oct. 2005
By Jamie M. Ahrens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After reading the other reviews that were posted for this book, I was hesitant to purchase it. However, I just couldn't resist reading Kyger's story after having read Lujan's, and I was prepared for the worst. I was amazed! This book had me reading from cover to cover in one night. I already knew who the villan was thanks to reviewers who have to spoil the ending, but I was still so surprised when I got to that part that I screamed out loud. I think I enjoyed this book more than any other I have read of Thea Devine's. I love the emotional growing that Kyger goes through in this book and was very happy to see that he gets his happy ending. I agree with other reviewers that this book should not be considered a romance but as an erotic mystery it is top notch. My only question is "What happens to Jancie?"

1.0 out of 5 stars very unsettling romance read 24 Feb. 2005
By Jennifer Barlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Despite the one star review, for more than 300 pages I was really enjoying this read. It was so unusual, with such a dream-like quality. This is not at all the typical romantic suspense, and I found the surreal mood fascinating. But then, Devine pulled the rug out from under me so thoroughly that I feel completely cheated. (Spoiler alert--I'm going to reveal the big surprise ending.)

At the very end, Devine reveals that a character the reader has become very fond of--especially if she has read Satisfaction, in which this character is the hero--is a truly despicable, skin-crawling villain. I felt as devastated as the hero of this book, which granted made for a very effective, emotional scene. But this is not the effect I'm looking for in a romance novel!! If this novel had not been labled a romance (and if this villain hadn't been the hero of a previous book), I probably would have applauded Devine's ability to provoke a reaction in the reader. As it is, I wish I'd never invested the emotional energy in this book.

Although I enjoyed Devine's writing, I will never read another of her books because I feel I can't trust her to give me the happily-ever-after ending I expect in a romance. (Yes, the hero and heroine end up together, but because of the hero's brother's betrayal, it feels very much unlike HEA!) What a disappointment.

1.0 out of 5 stars This deserves 0 stars-- HUGE Disappointment!!!!! 5 Sept. 2005
By Venus A. Rachal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Now, I am a lover of historical romance and I have previously enjoyed Thea Devine's books. My favorite book was Satisfaction--the book that precedes this one and involves the same characters.

This was the WORST book I've ever read by Ms. Devine and I was so frustrated, angry, and disappointed when I read it that I returned it to the store the next day, and I then wrote Thea Devine a letter detailing why I loved Satisfaction and why I was so disappointed by this book. Of course, I never heard back from her or her staff.

This book takes my favorite character from Satisfaction--Lujan Galliard, the hero--and makes him the VILLAIN in this book. How can you sacrifice one hero, one brother in order to support the other? I like Kyger, but this book did not even have the strength of Ms. Devine's other books. The plot was not as good, she heavily digressed into vulgar, unsatisfying sex scenes involving brutality against women, and there was little or no sense of love between the main characters at the end of this book. It was poorly done.

In the previous books that I've read (Desire Me Only, Seduction, Satisfaction, and one whose title I forgot but whom readers will recognize when I mention "The Eye of God") all ended with a sense that the main characters were in love. This book was based on a very fragile romance. It also destroyed the female lead of Satisfaction--Jancie--who was one of the most likeable heroines of Ms. Devine's books.

I also realized something when I read this book. The guilty party is always a close family member!! In every book of Thea Devine's that I've read, the villain turns out to be a mother, a father, a brother, a sister. While in the previous books the villians were very despicable characters, this one tops the cake!

It takes a character who goes through a large amount of growth in the first book, who learns lessons of love, responsibility, and family and turns him into an evil, dispicable man who is incapable of feeling kindness or any likeable human emotion. He is beyond saving in this book and it makes it seem as if her first book were a complete farce, which makes the readers feel like idiots. The worse thing you can do as an author is make your readers into fools, and as I wrote to Miss Devine, I am highly doubtful that I will ever want to read any of her books published after this point.

Save your money, or make sure to read one of her earlier books and beware of anything published after this book!!! Or, if you MUST read it, get it from the library. Then it doesn't cost anything and you can take it back!

2.0 out of 5 stars Extremely unsatisfying 12 Sept. 2005
By RReader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A huge disappointment for all. What could have been a beautiful story equal to that of Devine's previous novel, Satisfaction has been marred by Sensation's unhappy ending, confusing/messy plot whereupon many questions are left unanswered. Sensation revisits the characters of Satisfaction whereupon we are reunited with Lujan and Jancie. The book is intended to give Kyger (brother of Lujan) his own story but does this half-heartedly. More attention is on the mysterious plot rather than on him. Readers of the previous novel will find Sensation an unpleasant surprise when shocking revelations and damning suspicions are cast about the favoured character of Satisfaction (previous novel). The book switches between the relationship between Angilee & Kyger and the mystery that Kyger is trying to solve abruptly and the relationship is left undeveloped and their coming together as a "happy" couple is sloppy and seen as a "plug" to end the story quickly. The plot does not flow smoothly and is confusing at times. There is much that could have been done to improve the novel and it does not live up to expectations. It was expected that Kyger would have his own happy ending and the story would flow more harmoniously by taking its cue from Satisfaction. However, the author has succeeded in thoroughly confusing & shocking readers and leaving them to wait for the answers to many questions. The only ray of hope is that the shocking revelations & suspicions are all a ruse and that equilibrium will be restored with a happy ending in a new book to finish off the saga to the Satisfaction of us readers.

1.0 out of 5 stars A very poorly written romantic suspense novel. 15 Nov. 2004
By Sista - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For those who have read SATISFACTION (the first story of the Galliard Brother - Lujan) avoid this book at all costs. I bought SENSATION believing that Ms Devine, would explore Kyger (Lujan's brother) and pick up where SATISFACTION ended. The story is boring, the suspense is non-existent and so convoluted that it did not make sense (I had to re-read so many pages believing that I may have skipped parts...) as to how the "hero" in the previous book is now the "villain". To add insult to injury there was less sex in this book (in comparison to

her other books) and what sex it did contain (because of how the lead characters are created in this book you could not careless about them)seemed cold and unemotional.

When looking for a Romantic suspense, I am for the main element (Hot & Passionate) ROMANCE, SUSPENSE, some context surrounding the story. Ms Devine missed the opportunity to develop all the Characters from both stories.

Those new to Ms Devin, read "The Forever Kiss" as an example of how good her books can be.
