    1. Full Review to be posted soon at The Book Pushers. This is more like one and half stars - Quick thoughts and mini review. If I could sum one word to describe what this book was like for me - then it would be disappointing. It held so much promise, one it was set during Roman times and two it features a hero and heroine who were gladiators. Now you would think this would be a great combination and a great premise. But nope this was a huge and utter complete fail for me, and this is because it had [...]


    2. I enjoyed this book. Lilia did what she felt she had to in order to survive. Being a gladiator seemed like a hard life especially living among such brutal men. I liked Cristus and Lilia's chemistry together. I will probably read the first book in the series


    3. Lauren Hawkeye captures the essence of the dark, dangerous, gritty, and politically incorrect world of the Ancient Roman time period with a story as seen through the eyes of the heroine, Lilia. Written in 1st person point-of-view, the reader is experiences the ups, but mostly downs, of what life entails for this sole female gladiator in a world dominated and owned by men. As a slave, Lilia’s life is but strings to her puppet master, the ludus that houses the prized gladiator of Rome. As a skil [...]


    4. If you stumbled upon this book thinking it was your average historical romance then you would be very, very shocked when you found out what was inside. This is what happened to me, I was intrigued by the idea of a gladiator romance, in my mind I saw Russell Crowe sweeping me off my feet and feeding me grapes off the vine. What I forgot (which is terrible considering I was thinking about Russell Crowe) was that the Romans were well known for their rather open and scandalous sexual appetites. Sedu [...]


    5. Originally posted onTBQ's Book Palace~ * ~ * ~ I loved this book! It wasn't a typical historical, but I've come to expect this from Lauren Hawkeye. Instead of visiting the balls of the London ton, I was taken back to the times of the gladiators, and I loved every shocking, raw moment of it!Lilia was a wonderful heroine, very strong, but not so strong that she can't learn to lean on someone else when need be. I found her story very interesting, I guess I never thought about a woman as a gladiator [...]


    6. I loved My Wicked Gladiators, so was excited to read Seduced by the Gladiator. It's a companion,of sorts, with hero Christus being a minor (but important) character in the first. AND (this is a biggie) Marcus and Caius (and Alba) do have a small bit of page time here. I loved that.Okay, back on taskSeduced by the Gladiator was an interesting story. We have a female gladiator falling in love with her male counterpart, only to be forced into a battle to the death. A bit like The Hunger Games in th [...]


    7. Though not usually a fan of first-person narration, I liked this one, primarily because I like the heroine. She was a fighter and a cynic so to watch the hero thaw her out through sex leading to emotions was good. This is a more erotic romance than a lot of Avon published books so be prepared for that between the leads.This book is set in ancient Rome and as such it's a violent book. The violence is sexual sometimes and should disturb modern readers. If you like the Starz series Spartacus, then [...]


    8. Originally posted at smexybooks/2013/02/review-Favorite Quote: “You are always safe by my side, my lady.”Lilia is a novelty. She is a female gladiator and her skill and prowess has made her one of the most feared woman in Rome. When a former champion is sold to her ludris, she fears not only for her status…but also her heart.Christus’s owner has died and he is sold to a new ludris. When he first meets Lilia, he defends her honor, not knowing his interest will only make her life harder. L [...]


    9. I’m a bit obsessive about research, and I confess, I judge fiction and non-fiction books by how well the authors have done their homework. For me, that is the foundation of a good book. Layered on this, I next look for compelling characters, quality of writing, a page turning plot, and plot layers. Oh, and good sex scenes.Wow! All I can say is Lauren Hawkeye hit it out of the park with this book. She clearly did her homework, and even included a glossary for us word nerds who may not have a cl [...]


    10. While the physical attraction and relationship between Lilia and Christus are undeniable, they hide some main issues with the overall story, namely the characterizations. Yes, Lilia is meant to be a strong, independent woman with a touch of sympathy and softness. However, I never got an impression that she was entirely intelligent. She was obviously very trusting, especially in her master who basically sold her out and knew about was happening in his own ludus. I found that last point somewhat i [...]


    11. This was an ok book. I had a hard time really getting into it. It took me a lot longer to read then normal because I kept having to put the book since it didn't hold my interest. I liked the concept of Lilia, the strong resourceful woman with a bad haunted past. But I felt that she spent too much time living in the past and not looking to the feature. She has a good reason for not trusting others, based upon her past experiences but to keep reading about that. Its obvious from their first meetin [...]


    12. Set in the world of ancient Rome, this is a story of sex, love, violence, slavery, and wealth. I really enjoyed the setting of this story, brutal as it is, and the viewpoint of a female gladiator. Lilia has been a slave since a young age, and has made herself into a fierce warrior. The problem is that because of her fame, she's also caught the attention of Gaius, an evil man and brother to the Emperor. But there is one man, another gladiator named Christus, who becomes her own personal champion. [...]


    13. I loved this book, just like the first book in the series this one was full of tension and sexual passion. The undercurrent of danger ramped up the tension, Lauren really captured the essence of Roman times, which truly were barbaric. You can really feel their bond getting tighter through the book. The only disappointment about this book is that it wasn't longer, I had hoped too see Lilia training a sparring session with Christus before they got together for the first time would have really ampe [...]


    14. I actually finished this so long ago that I can't remember what day I did finished it.It was alright.I had some issues with it.There were female gladiators, they were actually called "gladiatrix" so the whole "The only female gladiator in Rome!" got really old, and really stupid.Also, she would have had her breasts unbound ALL the time whilst training/fighting according to research.There is enough evidence to show that there were female gladiators, that in 11AD, there was A BAN on women gladiatr [...]


    15. I would have given it five stars but there were some issues I'm going to list. Lilia is supposedly a fierce, strong warrioress that worked hard to get her position in society. So why didn't the author make a scene where she fights during one of their trainings or gets into a brawl with her enemies?That makes her only a bragger. And ever since Christus arrived she had become increasingly meek. Maybe the author wanted to make her more feminine as the plot developed. I will never know. Everything e [...]


    16. I had a hard time with this book. The idea was great, the execution was horrible. I had hopes this was going to be good as I'm a fan of that time period and having a female gladiator was a interesting twist.The first chapter or so was ok, then it just went downhill. I felt like I was reading a book that wanted to be an erotic novel but was written like it was a cable porn show. It was bad, really bad. This was one of those books that I wanted to give up on and not finish. I did finish it as I ha [...]


    17. I picked up a ebook copy of this book at RWA and was excited for it. I have just recently started reading erotica this year and have been enjoying it! The thing that really struck me about Lauren Hawkeye's Seduced by the Gladiator was it reminded me of Bertrice Small's Beloved. The descriptions were rich, the characters were intense, and the sex was hot! Now I can't wait to go back and read the first book in the gladiator series! Two thumbs up and some major props to Miss Hawkeye! :-)


    18. First person voice is really a challenge for me, even more so when the voice is so opposite my own. Male or female, it doesn't matter. The voice was one of the problems I had with this story; the other was the historical setting, Rome (BC, I assume). The writing and pacing were fine but I couldn't overcome the heroine. She wasn't the type of heroine I prefer reading about in my leisure time.


    19. This book could have been a story about a strong female lead, instead it was about a wussy female that was all talk, no action. She barely trained or fought. Nothing in the story SHOWED she was a tough, strong woman. Too often the bad guy came upon her unaware because she was too busy fan-girling the male lead. If she's such an amaze gladiator wouldn't you think she had some awareness.
