I get that the author is probably a woman (didn't bother to check, but usually these dreadful books are written by women -- doesn't matter.) I get that lots of women dream of being taken care of, even --maybe especially -- women who are totally capable of caring for themselves and others, and that's fine. But do the other women reading this book not mind that the *only female character* aside from the victimized mc is the woman doing *the cooking* for all the big brave men?? That in this retreat that supposedly caters to women who have been kidnapped and brutalized by the evil Mexicans, even the therapist is a condescending man? I know, it's hard to find a woman therapist, right? And it's not like it would be clinically indicated to have a female authority figure to help treat women who have suffered at the hands of male criminals, with threats of rape and all (but not actual rape, in Savi's case at least, because then she'd be dirty and less desirable, right?)
And while the mc is told that she basically has no choice but to stay in this environment and submit to treatment, no one seems to think there's anything really wrong with one of the men taunting her with sexual suggestions and leers -- I mean, sure, it's not nice of him, but boys will be boys. It's not like she's been sexually traumatized...oh, right. Well, boys will be boys.
Oh, and for any of you "older" ladies out there interested in this book, just be aware that Savi is the very first "pretty" woman they've had at the facility -- the others were *gasp* over 50 years old!! and "not pretty". As if there's any need to say "not pretty" once he's explained their ages -- everyone knows that only women in their 20's can be pretty! And also that women hate competition and totally get off on being told that they're the only pretty captives these boys have ever rescued, and that's the reason for the sexual harassment. It's a compliment, right?
Anyway, I'm sure everything works out beautifully for Savi and her true insta-love savior-man, Logan. I'm sure he protects her from the bad men and has great sex with her that is in no way affected by her being afraid of rape for so many months. I'm sure the whole power differential winds up being sexy instead of creepy. But I'm not interested in sticking around in finding out.
What can I say? People liked this book. It is shocking.
I will not be purchasing the other two; cliffhanger or not.
It's kind of entertaining to see all of the errors - and also imagine myself in the setting at the safe house which appears to be quite luxurious. I also get the impression that the "guests" are waited on hand and foot so it is quite ridiculous for Savannah to say " it's not everyday I get a chance to be pampered" when offered a trip to a day spa. She was practically a celebrity in her former life and is now treated like royalty. It's just one example of many where the thinking just does not make sense. This could have been a good book. What a disappointment.

Series by J. L. Drake
5 absolutely enormous stars
I just finished this series on my treadmill while running and having a sobbing fit. Do you know how hard it is to run and ugly cry; I mean seriously? This series is absolutely fantastic; a must read.
Savannah Miller has been taken. She has no idea why these people have her. She has been beaten and treated like a rabid animal. She knows she has been in the small dank room for one full season. Water is given to her in a rusty tin container and the food is always the same; a thin beef soup and a piece of bread. Why is no one coming for her? Her father should have someone looking; he is the mayor. Her captors mostly speak Spanish but she remembers an American in her in and out state of awareness. After her mouth got her the most severe punishment she has ever endured Savannah decides it’s time to give up. She will take her own life; not eat she is so small already it shouldn’t take that long for her to drift away to be with her mother. And then the popping noise happens; her vision is blurry but she hears the shouts. Her door flies open and a man dressed completely in black with a helmet and goggles shouts something into the radio on his neck; reaches forward and lifts me from the bed.
Colonel Cole Logan is the team lead of “Shadows.” Daniel, his father ran the company before him while Cole’s grandfather was the founder of the group. His best friend Mark Lopez stands alongside him. The team consists of Scout Snipers, Navy Seals, Green Berets, and a few other Special Forces specialties. The government wanted a group of highly trained professionals who could slip in and out of Mexico to gather information on the Cartels, Los Sirvientes Del Diablos, part of the Cartels, and a few other kidnapping and drug rings. The compound sits in the mountains of Montana. It has barns, lakes, training facilities all attached to a spectacular home large enough for the entire crew which includes Keith, York, John, Paul, and Abigail who takes care of everything.
The story line of this series is just downright jaw dropping and you talk about intense. There are so many things I never saw coming. I have never flipped pages in a book as quickly as I did in Broken, Shattered and Mended. Savannah or “Savi” as she becomes nicknamed by the guys is broken. Her memories of the seven months she was held captive are crucial to finding out how, why and how exactly everything that happened to her did. Cole and his team are determined they will protect Savi for as long as needed. She will stay with them as the worst possible person to be taken by and from is The American. They have hunted him for years but he has eluded them each time as they are uncertain of his identity. Savi has seen him and they need her to remember.
Not only is this a twisting roller coaster ride but it’s also love story so incredibly intense that I thought my lungs were going to burst. The power of the story laid out on these pages is brilliant. All three books introduce us to more secondary characters that are just as intriguing. I may have to go and stalk Ms. Drake’s page in order to beg and plead with her to give us a spinoff of the soldiers Mark and Keith. I don’t know if the things that were left unsaid are a hint towards that might be a possibility but I will use every ounce of my energy to persuade her to once again fill my head with another few incredible stories based around this magnificent “family.” By the way these are all FREE on Kindle Unlimited.
Once again I found these books by trolling my girl Tracy’s blog; Ramblings Beneath the Sheets. I’m telling you all don’t just click on the new releases. Dig deeper and you will find some gems that you will be cursing yourself for missing. This is one of those times for me! Standing ovation J.L. Drake. And please ... give me Mark and Keith. LOL! -- I’m serious!
