The Vixen's Lead - Tate James

#BlogTour: The Vixen’s Lead by Tate James @TateJamesAuthor @XpressoTours #Review

I was really excited when I found out about this tour, this book has been on my radar for a little while and it was the perfect opportunity to hike it up my TBR and read it and I was so not disappointed. Be sure to head over to Xpresso Book Tours to see all the other fabulous bloggers taking part in the tour and when you’ve read my review pick yourself up a copy of this fabulous read, I’ve already got book two so expect another review soon!


I want vengeance so badly that I can almost taste it. It’s all I’ve ever wanted. So, I did what any privileged, adopted boarding school girl would do. I slapped on a secret identity and became an internationally renowned thief, known as The Fox. Nobody knows me. Nobody can catch me.

Or so I thought…

It turns out; I have what they want. Special abilities. And trust me, these abilities are coveted–and dangerous. Now, I don’t know who to trust or where to go. Peril lurks on every corner as I try to uncover my past and origin. Teaming up with unlikely allies may be my only chance at survival or my biggest mistake. Only time will tell.

I’m Kit Davenport and this is only the beginning.

I had heard a lot about this book and it was patiently sitting on my TBR while I waded through the mountain of books I had, then the opportunity to review it for this tour came up and I leapt at it knowing I could totally queue jump it. I’m so pleased I did, Kit Davenport is one of those characters you just love thoroughly. She’s got a feisty attitude, can kick ass and is sexy as hell to boot, and unlike some characters, you don’t resent her for that sexiness one little bit.

Kit has had a shit life, but things are kind of on the up now, she’s been adopted by a nice, rich guy who despite a lack in parental experience genuinely cares for her and has sent her to a good boarding school with her best friend so she isn’t alone. She is also a master thief, known only as The Fox, evading capture until one night she doesn’t and she has to form an alliance with some unlikely partners.

Enter the men…Thank you, Tate James because these guys are such an eclectic mix yet they come together so perfectly and despite this being a truly slow-burn novel the heat is palpable throughout. Each of the guys has their own distinct personality and I didn’t want any of them to leave the page when they were on it, but then they would and another one would appear and I would feel the same again. Such brilliant writing.

I steamed through this book and I went straight to Amazon and downloaded the second book in the series and intend to read it much quicker than I read this first one because I just have to know what happens next. I highly recommend this, reverse harem readers are going to eat it up, new readers to reverse harem are going to love it’s slow-burn introduction to the genre. The suspense aspects of the novel are fantastic and the paranormal elements are perfect. I just can’t rave about this novel enough, one of my favourites this year.

Sending huge thanks to Tate James and Xpresso Book Tours for the eARC so that I could honestly review this book.
