Format: Paperback
Within the first few pages of Betrayed, I was hooked. The novel is the frightening tale of Brook, a woman abducted by three horrible men, and the days of horror endured at their hands.

It also tells the story of Lance, a man fed up with society, who has made a solitary life in the wilderness. Eventually, Brook stumbles across Lance after escaping the gang who held her.

I appreciated the way the author shifted from Brook's point of view to Lance's. It made a stunning contrast between the brutality of Brook's experience and the peaceful safe nature of Lance's life, giving me time to catch my breath. Just when I thought I couldn't take any more of what was happening to Brook, the next chapter came along to give relief from the tension by focusing on Lance's life.

I also appreciated the stark difference between the profane nature of the kidnappers' dialogue compared to the normal and sometimes very sweet dialogue between Brook and Lance.

This is an unusual book; a study in contrasts that makes each shifting scene pack more punch. The beginning is harsh, violent, and disturbing. But, once Brook and Lance meet, it turns into a tender love story. Although both characters struggle with heavy emotional baggage and very human flaws, they help each other find a path to redemption and healing. When Brook left the cabin to go back to her husband in Denver, I cried. I won't spoil the ending, but I will say the book had a satisfying conclusion with surprising and intense plots throughout.

The book was well-written and expertly paced. With its graphic sexual violence, the book is for adults only. It was an absorbing story, one I couldn't put down, and I can't wait to read more by this author. I give this book five stars for originality, content, and plot.

Betrayed was a highly emotional story. There is rape in this so reader beware! Lots of vividly detailed description not only with the violence or Brook's wounds but also the mountain scenery and snowfall. I could easily picture all of the characters. Parts of this book were very brutal but other parts were simply touching. It was hard to put down because I kept wanting to find out what was going to happen next.

"Betrayed" ended up being a different book than I expected. I expected more revenge, less romance (I guess I'm a tad bloodthirsty).

Don't get me wrong - I liked the book. Do be forewarned that there are very graphic rape/violence scenes in the first part of the book - a bit more than is warranted, I believe. But there are also tender scenes later in the story - quite a dichotomy.

There was quite a dichotomy on main protagonists, too. First there is Brooklyn, sheltered socialite, a little too naive (I definitely pictured her as a blond - I can't remember if her hair color was mentioned).

Then there is Lance, loner by choice, mountain man. I especially enjoyed reading Lance's story and backstory and the descriptions of his living conditions and lifestyle.

And the authors make the story work, even with the savage, bumbling caricatured lowlifes that kidnap Brook. All the characters are well-drawn, sometimes too much so.

The story between Brook and Lance was very well done, a quirky romance growing from violence and pure chance.

I won't go into details on either ending but the author(s) wrote an alternate ending to the book Betrayed - Alternate Ending that I thought fit the rest of the story better. At least the alternate ending gave me a more satisfied feeling when I finished it. The first ending felt rather rushed and tacked on.

Hmm. Where to start. This book, though readable and in some ways enjoyable, was rife with problems. The exposition was excessive and the plausibility, scoffable. The character's thoughts, actions and choices didn't ring true. And there was way too much head-hopping--even venturing into the POV of a goat and the hero's dead wife!

**Caution, review contains some spoilers**

The action that sets the whole plot in motion, at least the heroine's assessment of it, left me shaking my head and laughing. The author dangles this in front of us repeatedly via the heroine's POV (unnecessary - I caught on when it was presented the first time), yet Brook can't seem to ad 2 + 2 and get 4. She even seems to forget about it for a while, once she's at the cabin. Tearful denial that someone she loved could do something like that, I could have bought, but not outright stupidity--musing about it and seeming not to *get* it. It made her character come across as an idiot.

The skanky girl character living with the villains was simply not believable. Some denial and ignorance would have been okay, but her inability to see what was going on in front of her face was laughable. (She observed Brook being held against her will and repeatedly gang raped, then accused her of leading the guys on and of stealing her man <rolling eyes>) And the villains' permanently disrobing Brook and brutally raping her, then taking 'care' to send her with the female to see to her bathing and toileting needs was just plain silly.

The rape scenes were excessive, too. Describing it initially was okay, but it went on too long and in more detail than was necessary. More could have been left to the reader's imagination without harming the the story at all.
