I loved this book! I could not put it down. All thecharacters and the story line really pulled me in. It was great to see a different spin on the whole vampire thing too. When the end came, I was so upset. For two reasons...1, I didn't want it to end and 2, the wayit ended had me screaming in disbelief. I'm totally hooked! I can hardly wait for the next one. --Tedi, age 39
From funny...toromance...to paranormal, this book has it all! The characters areappealing and easy to love. The story rolls out smoothly throughout thebook without complicated details...and without the same old ending. I'mleft wanting more and can't wait for the next book to come out. --RG,age 32
From the Author
"Captivated is a story full of suspense, romance and action that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It pulls you in and you won't be able to tear your eyes away from the page. With twists and turns that you won't see coming, a back story that will pull on your heart strings and characters that you will get emotionally attached to, Captivated is a must read."

"The author was so brilliant with the layout of this book and conveying her characters in such a strong manner. Though I will admit the first couple chapters are slightly rough, the rest of the book more than makes up for it! I found myself falling in love with Dean (his badboy-ness, his looks, his muscles, I could go on & on), hating Shane, and crying/screaming at the end for Mindy & Dean. Speaking of endings, this book has a cliff hanger like you wouldn't believe!!"
Taking It One Book at a Time
'This book was well to sum it up in one word, perfect. When I first heard about Captivated, I thought "hey, this sounds good" but now that I have finished Captivated I'm like "omg omg omg, BEST THING EVER YOU MUST READ THIS" I seriously just loved this book, all the characters are likable, and you can really see character development in Mindy Dean and Markus, which is nice since a lot of books lack character development these days. I feel this book also had really good portions of everything in it, I never felt like anything was forced, the book honestly just flowed really nicely from beginning to end, never too much action, never too much romance, everything was just perfect. After reading Captivated, I can honestly say I will be reading every single one of E.M. Jade's future works, this book was nothing short of amazing."
"I was worried the story wouldn't be as alluring as that cover but fortunately, it completely satisfied my taste. This book lives up exceedingly well to its title. Captivated is addictive, possessing, magnificent, and electrifying in every way possible. No amount of words in the English dictionary could possibly define how breathtaking it truly is."
Itching for Books
"I'd recommend this book to anyone and everyone... It would have to be one of the best books I've read this year so far and I can't wait to sink my teeth into the next one cause at the end, your left wanting more! I must say, I was truly *CAPTIVATED* ;)"

"Overall I found the writing style fast paced and easy to read, which made the book very enjoyable. But man the ending DEVASTATED me, a total NOOOOO moment. It can't end like that I HAVE to know what happens. I am completely hooked now."

"There are moments you will be on the edge of your seat clutching the book because you can't read it fast enough. The ending is completely unexpected, and for those of us who are less than patient, we will be in agony waiting for the next book to be released."
