Book Description

All Nico wants is to leave his fame behind for a bit and enjoy a relaxing vacation. His trip to Belize starts off promisingly, but it all goes wrong quickly when he accidentally ruins the plans of Patrick, an ex-pat in the middle of an illegal deal. Patrick takes Nico hostage, hoping to recover his loss, and if Nico wants to regain his freedom he'll have to do exactly what Patrick says—including, apparently, a bit of cross-dressing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly satisfying 30 Mar. 2013
By Sirius - Published on Amazon.com

I say surprisingly because it is getting harder and harder for me to find a short story/short novella in mm genre which would satisfy me. More often than not I end up thinking that short story looks more like an outline for the novel and it is frustrating.

Well, since I bought this story on the strength of good review by somebody whose tastes I trust, I guess I should not be that surprised :)

This story feels amazingly complete with 18000 words. Oh the love story is basically just starting, but I for once thought that it is believable that they would have a future together. I would call the ending strong HFN.

I have a love/hate relationship with capture stories - this one worked for me very well, partly because it is on the lighter side and characters making subtle fun of some usual plot developments in those stories was funny. Nico thinking at some point that he has Stockholm Syndrome was hilarious for example.

I liked Patrick too, quite a lot, but Nico was wonderful, was very pleased to see that the writer did not portray him as stupid, Nico is actually sharp and observant.

Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Sweet! 11 July 2014
By JustJen - Published on Amazon.com
How perfect that I was able to find a book for pirate week that wasn’t a swashbuckling historical! Not only that, but this one takes place in my favorite vacationing spot of Belize!

Poor Nico just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Granted, he probably shouldn’t have been traveling alone, but anyway, he is taken aboard a boat by a group of men being captained by Patrick.

Patrick is trying to exact some revenge on his ex, the woman who forced Patrick into his ex-pat status, by stealing gems out from under her. His plan now includes using Nico as a fill in for his ex to make the pickup of the gems. Patrick promises to free Nico after he completes this job.

As they wait for the meeting, the two become closer after a few events show Nico that there is more to Patrick than the dangerous criminal he portrays. Their feelings grow, and Nico shows Patrick what it’s like to be with another man. At this point, Patrick has no idea who Nico actually is, which is one of the things that has enabled Nico to become so enamored by Patrick. He is finally with someone who is doing it to be with Nico the person, not Nico the rich rock star.

The tags make this story sound much darker than it actually is. It was a really sweet story with very little violence or abuse. Neither MC ends up even being capable of shooting anyone, and at the end of the day, everyone does the right thing and love prevails. This wasn’t quite what I was expecting when I picked this story, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It was entertaining, sexy and sweet. And, I was happy to see the Belize details were so accurate, right down to the Belikin!

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute Pirate Stockholm Syndrome story 22 Dec. 2012
By Cole Riann - Published on Amazon.com
Captive is the first book I've read by Remy Jensen and despite my forced reservations about reading capture books (because I never seem to learn my lesson and I always do and they usually bother me), I couldn't deny this one. I mean, it's got a pretty boy rocker! I couldn't say no. And I'm glad I didn't, because I found this story to be a fun romp across the Caribbean seas with action, and more action (if you know what I mean) with a dashing, well... contemporary pirate.

It took Nico time to wear down his manager and get him to agree to Nico taking a solo vacation without his bodyguard. He needs some time away and after all, he's just going to be sipping mai tai's on the beach in Belize. There's no danger. But when he finds himself tied to the masthead when the water taxi turned out to be a trap, full of pirates bent on revenge, he knows he made a mistake. What can he do? The men are lecherous and he looks very much like a pretty woman to a bunch of roughneck sailors. His savior (and jailor) comes in the form of the captain of the boat and leader of their plot to smuggle illegal jade, a man who seems to be American (with yummy dreads) and no older than him. Patrick is an enigma, and Nico can't decide whether to hate him or lust after him. Sure, maybe he didn't want to be ravaged at first, but when Patrick firmly enforces his chastity, well... things have changed.

As you can see from my summary of the story, the best part of this story is that it doesn't take itself seriously, however it isn't over the top. It isn't really making fun of itself, but Nico is such a subtly flamboyant man that "stockholm syndrome" suddenly sounds like an adventure. Of course, subtly flamboyant is difficult to describe, but what I mean is that Nico has a natural vivacity that draws people to him, probably part of the reason he's so engaging on the stage. But it shows itself more naturally on the boat, because no matter what Nico is doing, snarling at the men around him or dressed in drag, he's engaging and likable without even trying.

So that made this story quite a bit of fun to read. They have adventures, of course, which I won't really get into, but the real story is in the growing romance between Nico and Patrick. I would have liked a little more detail about Patrick's past and the reason he's a "pirate" as Nico calls him but which he adamantly denies. He is, however, on the run and unable to return to America, and I would have liked more detail about what exactly he was running from. While we get a little bit of the picture, we don't get much more than that. I do appreciate, however, that the ending takes a somewhat more realistic turn than I expected. It ends with a firm HFN and maybe an HEA, depending on your opinion, but not without time and difficulty. There isn't a quick and easy ride off into the sunset (or, I should say sail), but rather at least an attempt to not demand the reader suspend too much disbelief.

Really, though, this was just a fun read. I enjoyed Nico the most of course, but Patrick as well and liked that their relationship takes central stage but with a backdrop of their adventures, instead of more emphasis in other directions. The sex is incredibly steamy. So I'd recommend this story for a light hearted tale when you get the winter blues. The sunshine and azure seas of Belize will entice you to take a 30 minute vacation with sexy men with dreads and small, lithe rockers with too much attitude.
5.0 out of 5 stars A satisfying tropical storm 11 Jan. 2013
By Tracy - Published on Amazon.com

Captive is like taking a trip to a tropical island in the middle of the cold season - at least, that's what it was like for me! Nico is an engaging character and I was swept away with him on his not-so-fun adventure. He was tough and stood up for himself, and I enjoyed the way he sassed his captors, particularly the handsome Patrick. Remy spun a tale that thoroughly captured my attention. Things played out differently from what readers might expect from this scenario, and it was a satisfying turn of events. I enjoyed the charge between Nico and Patrick, as well as the way they were drawn together despite the circumstances that would reasonably keep them apart. Very sexy story, tightly paced and a quick read, but very enjoyable for that.
5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely chemistry 25 Dec. 2012
By Mel Stein - Published on Amazon.com
I love the chemistry between the two MCs and how it overcomes the circumstances surrounding them. I actually wish the story was a bit longer, because I really enjoyed their interactions and I'd have loved to learn a bit more about Patrick and Nico, but the story does well with what the author has chosen to show. I can't wait to see what else the author will share with us!
