"Jack and Jasinda Wilder have"Captured" me with this amazing story. Not only is it incredibly suspensefuland fast paced, at it's core it is essentially a fantastically written romancewith all the grit and steam you can imagine. This book gets five wickedly wildstars, and I hope this is not the last collaboration book between this husbandand wife team." - Three Chicks and Their Books

Jackand Jasinda are the power couple of words, using multiple layered stories tocreate reading bliss. Captured is a stand-alone but is toldalongside its predecessor, Wounded. Wounded wasimpressive but Captured will captivate your heart. By far this is my topWilder read." - The Book Avenue Review

As a military spouse myself, this book started off hard to take. I'm not going into detail of the events but I will say that if you are an emotional person, and you feel things on a deeper level, this book will likely become intense and hard to read at times. I had to take a weekend off after I got about half-way through the book. In total I probably read this in about eight hours, but I was hungry for Jasinda's words and I devoured this book because of that.
Captured takes us on a journey of massive loss and equally massive healing for both the hero an female lead characters. Some of the things that are done are not technically something the military might do but I felt like Jasinda's creativity to the writing was done well. I cried a lot throughout this book and I felt a sense of kinship to Reagan. My favorite words from Captured were in Reagan's POV, "Another, dirtier secret: Sometimes the weight of loneliness is heavier than the weight of missing [him]." Those words resonated with me because it is true. Deployment is sad, and messed up, but the loneliness is the hardest part to get through. Even with kids.
Once I got over my emotional issues and took my weekend off from reading, I composed myself and rose to the challenge of finishing it. This will be the reason this book was a 4-star review and not a 5-star. The ending lacked so much detail that the first portion of the book was so good about giving us. I was invested in Hank and Ida and the other supporting characters because I had been given so much detail at the beginning of the book. The last 100 pages or so are very skimmed through and almost seemed like another author came in and started writing the story. Derek, the Hero of the book, even seemed to have a different mentality and even spoke differently. It was hard to come back from for me.
This book is amazing and I'd recommend it to anyone who loves realistic emotions. Captured gives you all the feels and more.
Jasinda - Thank you for giving military wives a more realistic personality. Reagan wasn't "that" military wife from the get-go and she was angry, mad, hurt, and upset when those she loved had to leave. Because this is how it feels. It's not always just sad, it sucks!
This book grabbed me from the start, and through all the emotional turmoil that I went through, I only wish I could read this all over again (which I will undoubtedly do) without knowing what will come next. There are a few books I have read that have made me wish I could turn back time, just so I could read the book for the "first" time over and over, and this is one of them.
The hero in this story is just that, a hero. He is the type of hero we all look at and wish we could do more than just say thank you (at least I do). And the heroine, is the type of woman I wish I could be, strong, faithful, hopeful.....and still human, still having doubts and fears, but not running from anything. The Wilder's are a terrific writing duo, and this book is testament to that.
If you are looking for a book that will have you laughing, crying, rooting for the characters, and yet not wanting to reach the end of the book because you know it will be over and you don't want it to end......I recommend this book, I only wish I could shout from the highest rooftop to let you all know, just how much I loved this book. I'm sure you are wondering, where my review is.....the truth is, I can't write one, I don't have the words to be able to express everything this book made me feel. I will say, if I ever get a chance to meet a "Derek" or a "Reagan" I will without a doubt, give them my biggest heartfelt thanks, and a bone crushing hug......and for that I have to also say the same for Jasinda and Jack, a hug and a thank you is in order when I get the chance to meet up with you wonderful writers.
5 Stars just isn't enough for this book!!!!
Losing someone you love is never an easy thing, but believing in second chances may be the hardest of all. Derek and Reagan have both suffered the unimaginable, but through the pain and loss, finding love again might be worth fighting for.
Jasinda and Jack did an amazing job developing characters and a strong story line. So many emotions felt, tears shed, giggling out loud at one point, and the fears and pain the characters felt were shared by me. This might be the best work yet of the pair. I found myself having to wait a day to even write this review. My emotion were all over the place and I needed time to calm myself. Just a beautiful, steamy,and emotional ride. Five beautifully breathtaking stars.

I think what grips you the most about this story is the realism of the story. War is a very real part of our reality and people lose loved ones as a result of war. This story looks at how you find love again and deal with life after war.
Regan had written a letter to her husband before he went off on what would be his final mission. Treating the letter as a good luck charm, he never properly got to read it and discover the important information contained inside. In his last days he asked his friend to read the letter, Derek couldn't bare to tell him the news and kept the truth hidden. After his return to the states Derek looks to find Regan. He is obviously traumatised by his time in service but offers to help Regan.
It was obvious that the two would form a relationship but the internal struggle that they both dealt with is what sold the story. The moral dilemma between what feels right and loyalty to friends, keeping the memory of a loved one alive and allowing yourself to be happy again.
The book looks at second chances in love and life. There are twists and surprises to the story and in true Wilder tradition, the sex is incredibly hot!
I urge everyone to take a chance on this story and not be emotionally sucked in by the end.
