Kerry L Cap - Another excellent book
This is another great read from Tijan. It deserved more than 5 stars. After Fallen Crest Series, this is going to be another epic story. This is another one that I could not stopped reading and had to find out what happened next. Can’t wait for next one.
By the way, love all of her books.
AlexStarReader1 - FANTASTIC
Tijan hardly ever disappoints. Can’t wait for the next book. FYI, the book ends in a cliffhanger.
ke1zzz - Woah.
Kash and Bailey. Man, they might rival with Mason and Sam. I love them so much. I’m kind of mad at myself for reading all of this on its release date. I honestly wish I would’ve taken my time, but then again I’m glad I didn’t/& couldn’t. I can’t wait to continue their story in the next book. 💙
nikki van horn - Great read!!
I love Tijan books and this one definitely didn't disappoint. Bailey is a computer genius. Her life gets turned upside down when someone is trying to kidnap her. Kash is good at what he does. Putting out fires and protecting people. Bailey learns who her father is and has to make a choice to either live with him or live with her mother. I don't know how she put up with what she did. I would have told them off. Kash has some secrets too. I learned a lot about Kash, Bailey and Peter. It keeps you on your toes that is for sure. I needed to know what happened next, I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this book. I can't wait to see what happens next. Evil grandfather comes to play. Another great read Tijan. Love it.
~Mindy Lou~ - Captivating!!
I just love living in the world's of Tijan! This new world she has created with Bailey, Kash, Peter and all the Francis' and more, has this power to just draw you in and keep you captivated. I feel like I'm on the sidelines of a tennis match, watching intently to everything that is happing form all sides.
The main characters, Bailey and Kash, are an odd pairing but they fit so well. She's a computer genius with a photographic memory. She is beautiful but not a polished beauty.
Kash is a polished beautiful. He's from a world everyone envies and wants to be a part of. He's also extremely powerful and connected. As a man, you do not want to mess with Kash, but as a woman, you dream of getting a chance to mess with him.
I'm super intrigued with the ending and where the story will go from here. I am invested and want more!
Anna (Anna’s Bookshelf) - an interesting and well written novel
Tijan is one of my all time favorite authors. I typically devour all of her books and so I was thrilled when I read the synopsis of this novel. There were several elements of the book that I enjoyed and then some areas where I struggled. I positively love this author’s unique writing style. She has such a way of conveying the heroine’s thoughts that I feel like I am present in her mind. This was especially true with Bailey. The author’s characters are always interesting and this even includes the secondary characters.
I also really enjoyed the premise of this book. However, I don’t think it was necessarily executed in the best way, but I’ll get to that later. As for Bailey, I found her endearing for the most part. She is exceptionally intelligent and a little quirky, which are the fun little personality traits that I love. Even with her entire world being flipped upside down, she takes it all in stride and I was definitely rooting for her. The elements of suspense was also exciting. These were interspersed throughout the book, but with the bulk of it during the last few chapters. The build up was well done, but it sort of fell a little short at the end.
I want to say that I loved Kash, but I didn’t feel like I knew much about him. I do believe some of this was intentional. He is mysterious with a proactive streak. The author peels back a few of the layers, but his character was not well developed. I also think this is why I didn’t feel that connection between Kash and Bailey. The physical aspect of their relationship was pretty solid which I liked but I didn’t really see much beyond that. Again, I think this is because not much was revealed about his character. Maybe a connection between them will be more tangible in the next book.
The book grabbed my attention immediately, but it felt like not too much happened until the very end. There were secrets revealed and moments of action which were perhaps my favorite parts of the book and yet the cliffhanger wasn’t overly shocking. Finally, the cover, while absolute stunning is a bit misleading. This isn’t a love triangle as it seems to suggest with two girls and a guy but I honestly have no idea who the blonde is. Even with the lack of connection between the main characters, I did enjoy this book. I especially liked Bailey as the heroine and I liked the underlying story. Yet, I am not certain how the author will get 2 more books out of this. Still, I am invested enough to see how it all plays out and will read the next book.

Astroyic - OMG! SO INTENSE!
I knew that I would love this book based on all my other reads by this author. But I was not expecting this to be one of the best I’ve read of 2021. But it’s definitely in my top two. This was such an experience-I was absolutely engrossed from the beginning, sucked into this incredibly, intricate, captivating, smart, witty, steamy, sexy, and brimming with chemistry that was off the charts, romance.
OMG!! “THE INSIDERS” captivated me from page one. I was hooked. It was everything I didn’t know I needed and I couldn’t get enough of it. Yes this is a cancel all your plans kind of book. You will instantly be sucked into this story and you will be powerless to put it down! And my first thought after finishing reading was “When can I get my hands on the next book in this trilogy????” I Need It NOW!
There is so much I want to say right now but I won’t do that to you. I want you to go into this story and for it to be as much as a mystery as it was for me. So CANCEL ALL YOUR PLANS!! Be prepared to want to devour this book in a single setting... but don’t, savor it. There will be sizzling romance, mystery, intrigue, danger and so many feels and emotion. I haven’t felt this obsessed with a group of characters in a long time. And I was totally dazzled and enamored by Bailey and Kash and their chemistry! It is just so, so...HOT! I LOVED IT!!!

Sandy Sch - 4.25stars-heart breaking and dramatic
4.25 stars--THE INSIDERS is the first instalment in Tijan’s contemporary, adult THE INSIDERS romantic suspense series focusing on twenty-two year old computer hacker Bailey Hayes, and fixer Kashton ‘Kash’ Colello.
Told from first person perspective (Bailey) THE INSIDERS follows in the aftermath of an attempted abduction of our story line heroine. Bailey Hayes has a genius IQ, and will come to learn she is the illegitimate daughter of billionaire Peter Francis, and as such, has a target on her back but to Bailey’s surprise, she has one of two options, and the lesser and safer of two evils is to move in with the Francis family where she will become the object of ridicule, the subject of gossip, and the lover of the Francis empire ‘fixer’ Kashton Colello. All is not well with the Francis family dynamics, and our heroine will be caught in a fire-storm of power and control, jealousy and revenge, hatred, betrayal, acceptance and love. What ensues is the building relationship and love between Kash and Bailey, and the fall-out as the enemy is closer than anyone could have ever imagined.
Kashton Colello has some secrets of his own but his biggest secret is about to be exposed. Raised by the Francis family in the face of losing everyone he loved, Kash has more power and control over the day to day lives of the Francis family but he is about to lose the upper hand as the enemy comes from within.
The relationship between Kash and Bailey begins as an assignment, a duty that Kash has appointed himself as sole authority and control. Bailey is immediately attracted to her savior and guardian but Kash battles between head and heart knowing his past is determined to take down and destroy everyone he loves.
There is a large ensemble cast of colorful, energetic and broken secondary and supporting characters. We are introduced to Bailey’s mother Chrissy, and her half-siblings: Matt, Seraphina and Cyclone; her father Peter Francis, and his wife Quinn, as well as an assortment of Matt’s friends, security personnel, and Kash’s ex Victoria. The requisite evil has many faces.
THE INSIDERS is a story of secrets and lies, power and control, family, relationships, murder and money. The character driven premise is intriguing, engaging, heart breaking and dramatic; the romance is seductive and passionate without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text; the characters are damaged, spirited yet powerful and strong. THE INSIDERS ends on a cliff hanger-you have been warned.
Terry Louise - 5 Stars for this heart-pounding romance!
I could not put this book down and I read into the wee hours of the morning to finish it. I just loved Bailey and Kash! I could just feel the electricity between them arcing off the pages. I loved how Bailey wanted to keep her distance from her siblings, but she just couldn't help inserting herself into their lives. She wanted to have more family. And Kash is just one big secret. Just when I thought "okay this is his big secret" ... no that wasn't it, there was more. The supporting characters were great ... I would love to see a story about Matt. The steamy scenes were well written and the banter was realistic. At times I thought I had the story figured out, then something would happen and take the story in a whole new direction. I can't wait for the next book!
I received an early copy courtesy of St. Martin's Press through NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.

Bees777 - Wow
I couldn’t put this book down. I can’t wait to read more..... there had better be more haha.
MSND7 - Great start to a series
This is a great start to a trilogy. Tijan’s writing is addictive and I finished this book in one sitting. The characters are interesting and I enjoyed the romance between the main characters. Bailey and Kash are both compelling characters and the storyline hooks you from the very beginning. The side characters are interesting in their own right and I didn’t see the twist at the end. I look forward to the next book in the series.
