Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I’ve found some real gems in this type of read, the captive/capturer one. Karina Halle’s Dirty Angels immediately springs to mind – possibly because of Javier Bernal...oh come on – who’s kidding, of course it’s because of Javier so I wondered how this one would work out. Its a tough task though, making a violent kidnapper and a drugs/crime background into a love story.
So did it work for me? Well...yes, and no. There were things that went well, and I really got into the story, but then sometimes I just couldn’t see either of the two main characters acting as they did. Whereas in DA it took some time for the relationship to go from hate to love, here its a bit too quick. Its clear Ryker is seriously attractive and Hattie’s really upset after Evan’s betrayal, so the first scene when she’s a bit drunk works well for me, and of course sets the kidnap up. Then she’s a captive, and in real danger if she doesn’t play along. The capture, her reactions and the escape attempts felt very real but.....and this is where it falls down for me, the time span is so short, and she’s still in the mix of hating Ryker and yet wanting him. I just can’t see why he would risk so much. I didn’t feel “the love” between them, certainly the lust on first meeting, but now she knows that was a set up why is she still so ready to let him do whatever he wants – and why does he want to, when he can get sex anywhere, any time? I needed to feel a bit more of a connection between them than just a searing, physical attraction – something that would explain why they both risked so much. In such a short time, just a couple of weeks I just can’t see that happening.Read more ›
Hattie catches her boyfriend, Evan, cheating on her and ends up going to Mexico for Spring Break with her friend. She ends up in a nightclub and has a hot and sexy encounter with a mysterious, gorgeous stranger. The next thing she knows, she’s drugged and wakes up tied to a chair and in the hands of the Vargas Cartel, who are using her as a political pawn to exchange for one of their own.
Hattie is from a hugely influential family but she finds the familial chains restrictive and suffocating, so once she went to college, she took control of her life but lives it fairly rigidly to set schedules.
The enigmatic Ryker fascinated me, as his behaviour raised questions in my mind – he was open about certain things but was definitely hiding lots of secrets.
Told from Hattie’s POV, she is scared but defiant and ready to grab opportunities to escape. She is also, much to her disgust and horror, hopelessly attracted to Ryker, and finds herself time and again in his arms during the weeks of her captivity.
It is a compelling read with very heated moments and also tender ones. It’s pretty clear that the attraction and compulsive desire between the two are mutual.
The final chapter is written in Ryker’s POV and is a mind-blowing revelation. This book is an absolutely exciting must-read and I can’t wait to dive into the other books.
