Product description

About the Author

Nicole "Cappie" Thorn was born in California but, after a stint in Kansas, moved to a suburb of Phoenix. She spends a lot of her free time knitting and reading from her massive book collection. Her days are also wasted discussing fictional characters with her writer friend, and having very serious opinions about which house she would want to be sorted into at Hogwarts. She likes to write about rainy towns that are infested with the things that go bump in the night. Her eclectic tastes, like Disneyland, Buffy and all things London, carry into her writing. She started writing in her early twenties and finds it wonderfully addictive.

This book brought out so many emotions in me. I was happy for Riley and her ‘’sisters’’ when they escaped. I felt sorry for Riley when she couldn’t find her place in the outside world, her feelings of depression and the flashbacks of what she and the girls went through. I know before I even type this that it is going to sound mean but: Riley’s parents really frustrated me. I understood that they were scared for their daughters well being but I wanted them to give her room to breathe and to treat her as an adult. Don’t even get me started on the Kermit the frog situation! This book did remind me of pretty little liars but I actually liked that it did. Even though it reminded me of pretty little liars, it had its own storyline; it wasn’t a copy of the show, the story is well written and the emotions are well showcased. Whilst reading this story, I felt like Nicole took me on a journey of emotions, from being scared, depressed, frustrated and finally settled. Settled – as in I am happy how the story ended, I feel like the story is finished, and not rushed to an end.
The only thing that confused me during the story was that Riley was took to a fast food place for a surprise, to see her ‘’sisters’’ during that scene, it says ‘’ the doorbell rang, and we saw Kylie walk in with her father. She spotted us and ran like we did. After the initial greeting, we were given the food we ordered’’ I had to re read the scene twice to make sure they wasn’t at somebodies house. I liked the relationship Riley formed with Wilson, I liked that he treated her like an adult at that he was there for her even when he wanted to not get too close because of the secret he was hiding.
One last thing: I LOVED the scene about Wilson going and searching for the missing frog (Kermit), it is SO CUTE!

Riley, Layla, Adalyn and Kylie were all abducted as 12 year old girls and kept in an underground bunker by the man they called the Master, they were all pretty and blond and he called them his dolls. Seven years later Riley manages to attack and kill him so that they can all escape. The girls are then all returned to their families but they feel like sisters, for the last 7 years they have been family to each other and don't know how to carry on without that interaction.

Riley struggles when she gets home she doesn't know how to react to her family - she has a new brother who she instantly adores - but her parents don't understand her needs and treat her like a doll - the one thing that she is trying to get away from. Then she meets Wilson the boy next door, a bit of a bad boy, but she soon feels drawn to him and he treats her properly not like she is a freak, but her parents don't approve of the growing closeness or of her desperation to see hers "sisters"

A great book exploring the after effects of four girls held in captivity for the whole of their adolescence and how they struggle to relate in the real world - heartbreaking and emotional at times but definitely one you cant put down!

The Dollhouse By Nicole thorn is a romance and women's fiction read.
Riley Cain. Layla Hall. Adalyn Mitchell. Kylie Michaelson. Those are the four girls kidnapped from their hometown over seven years ago, and they’ve finally broken free of their prison. They were taken by a man whose name to them was only ever Master. He spent years perfecting them. Making them his little dolls, meant to love him and nothing else. Or so he thought. 
A stroke of dumb luck supplied Riley with all she needed to end Master and free her and her friends from the hell they’d been living in. Suddenly, they find themselves thrown back into society. Now nineteen, the girls have to try and acclimate to how their families have changed, as well as the world around them. Nothing is as it was. 
Fantastic read with brilliant characters. Full of twists and plots. A captivating read. Highly recommended. 5*. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book from netgalley.

The Dollhouse by Nicole Thorn
Seven years ago, Riley, Layla, Kylie and Adalyn are kidnapped by a man they only know as Master. He spent seven years grooming them, almost turning them into talking, walking, sleeping dolls, meant to love and almost worship him and only him.
When the opportunity arises, Riley kills the ‘master’ enabling them to escape their incarceration. Now the girls who had become as close as sister are re-united with their real families.
After so long kept away from the ‘real’ world, the girls struggle to adjust to all the changes that have happened and how the world has moved on without them.
This book is very good and one that I highly recommend, yes, it is heart wrenching but a hard one to put down.
Thanks, Netgalley and Curiosity Quills for the chance to read this book in exchange of an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a happy story, but a good one nonetheless 24 Mar. 2017
By Crazie Betty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Have you ever seen that Netflix show “The Unstoppable Kimmy Schmidt”? Well, this is that story, only much more realistic. Riley helps her and 3 other girls escape from a crazy man who has kept them hidden in his house for 7 years pretending they are his “dolls”. Now, before I go any further let me get this out there, this is not a story of girls being sexually assaulted. There is definitely assault and humiliation and abuse but the abuser is more about keeping his dolls pretty and perfect and has no desire to “defile” them. In case you have triggers I wanted to make sure that was out there.

This story is essentially dealing with Riley and the 3 other girls as they try to re-acclimate to the real world and how everything and everyone around them has changed. Learning how to trust, love and live all over again with no concept of what it is to be an adult, or how to have adult relationships. There are moments in this book that are truly heartbreaking as everyone tries to keep Riley in a different type of cage; afraid to let her anywhere out of their site. To Riley, she feels like she freed herself only to be captured again. It’s an interesting story on how everyone deals with something like this, not just Riley, but also her parents, and the new brother she meets when she comes home. Nothing is how she remembers it and after living so long in a dollhouse, she isn’t sure how she feels about it. The relationship that develops between her and her neighbor Wilson is so sweet. And not the sugar coated YA sweet, but the kind of sweet of someone who doesn’t understand at all what Riley is going through, but is willing to move heaven and earth to understand her as much as he can. While everyone else can’t see past the little girl she was when she was taken, Wilson wants to treat her as the adult she wants to be and is trying to become.

I truly enjoyed this story and will gladly read the next book in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Broken dolls and reawakening 26 Feb. 2017
By Cassie H. - Published on Amazon.com

"I was just a broken doll."- Riley

Seven year's of captivity and being his doll. Riley is now free, along with her 'sisters' but how can you return to the life you were snatched from? Riley's character is one that you want to coddle and protect, but also want to kick out of the tree. I have a love hate for her, and I hate I feel that way, but sometimes that happens. All Riley wants is to feel alive, any way possible.

Riley's mother, I tried to put myself in her shoes. How would I feel and act if this happened to my daughter? But I felt as if her mother was smothering her. Riley needed some normalcy, and by blocking her in those ways, it upset me. But would I have done the same thing, not knowing that I'm really heandering my daughter, probably. So I'm torn with Riley's parents actions, but as a parent, I can see where they're coming from... even if I hate it.

Wilson is the one person who treated Riley like she wasn't broken, like she wasn't the paper doll she and everyone else believed she was. He treated her like any other person. He was the one she could open up to when she shut the rest out. Wilson's character was amazing. I enjoyed his interlude a lot more than Riley's chapters. I think I felt more connected with him, I could relate to him.

With a 6th grade education, and mentally stunted, Riley has a lot of caching up to do. Being 19 and having almost every growth stunted, how do you act, live or think? Could you imagine? Being locked away for 7 years and then being free. To a world that has changed so much. To one where you don't know where you fit in.

As a reader, I felt that this story could of progressed faster. It was slow and sometimes I felt as if I was wading through it. The peaks were few and far between. But the story was one that pulls you. I had to know what was going to happen, I had too much invested in these characters. I can't wait to see them evolve into their own, all of them.
5.0 out of 5 stars What an AMAZING read. Pure gold 19 Sept. 2016
By Diana Muñoz Carbonell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
What an AMAZING read. Pure gold. I hadn't read any other books from this author, but if they are like this one they sure are great. The book follows Riley, who has spent seven years of her life at the hands of a kidnapper who took her and three other girls to "play" with them as if they were dolls. When they finally escape, they find that their lives have changed, as much as in their families as in their heads, snd have to kind of learn to live again.
There are also chapters written from Wilson's POW. Wilson is the guy next door and the only one who doesn't treat Riley as if she is weak or a broken doll.
The story between these two characters keeps on evolving during all tbe book, and it feels so real and so right!
But don't expect this book to be a case of a princess in need found by a prince charming. Think of this book as real life, messed up, with pain and anxiety, with fears and tears, and with some very dark parts. For all these reasons I loved this book.
The only reason I haven't given this book five stars is because of Riley's parents, who didn't seem very supportive of their daughter and didn't seem to learn anything, making the story a bit repetitive when they were on the scene. I get it was needed to explain the story, but for me it was like there were some ideas and/or topics that kept repeating themselves.
