This story is a mixture of steamy and romantic suspense as the story gradually unveils more of the Ethan's sad history and his gradually succumbing to Lysa's warm personality.
I enjoyed the steady, heady steam weaved throughout the book. This book was not shy with the loves scenes and the hero's dirty talk -- thank you. I loved the tortured soul storyline soothed by the warm, sensitive heroine; the side character, Bubby, was simply delightul. Character development could have been richer. There was insta-lust (loved it), insta-attraction (also loved it), which eventually worked its way through their interactions. Ethan's wrestling with his feelings, which is what I'm sure was trying to be portrayed, sort of inorganically flipped back and forth rather than an authentic shift from dark and broody to lighthearted lover. I do understand his character was suppose to change.
Even so, I thought this was an excellent book, engaging storyline with lots of steam and a happily ever after almost fairy tale like -- oh so romantic. The childhood love, the butterfly theme, the saved kiss, the steamy love affair -- beautiful. 4.5 stars

So, I will start by saying, THIS WILL NOT BE FOR EVERYONE. Triggers up the wazu and will be disturbing to some, read with caution.
Ethan, he is a bunch of nah, no, and never. When I first started this story. I can honestly say I was worried about Ethan, I felt like a therapist at times trying to figure him out and hoped the author didn’t take us into cliffhanger mode with this book. Didn’t think he could be redeemable. However, as the story progresses, certain things clicked on the makeup of Ethan and why he is the way he is. But as disturbing as he was in the beginning, watching the metamorphosis of Ethan’s character was a roller coaster ride that satisfied me in the end. (Spoiler) the whole spiting thing and telling Lysa to lick it up, that was a no for me but pushed through.
Lysa, the circumstances that lead her to being his captive is your typical blackmail but not by Ethan. At first, you think to yourself, why isn’t she fighting him more, it’s like she welcomes his punishments and was thirsty to please Ethan. But she is extremely young and innocent and I think she handle him the best way she understood how to, while being help captive. I think she grew a bit, as I am glad the author didn’t try to hurry and finish this story with a simple I forgive you. I like that Lysa took the time to do want she didn’t get to do while growing up.
Buddy, stole my heart. I am kind of glad he wasn’t the typical stud, sexy best friend. I enjoyed the plot of the story as well, especially towards the climax of the story and reading everything unfolding.
Overall, I can say I am pleased by the author’s first attempt at writing her first novel. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read it when I first came across this book as I didn’t see other books by the author to reference, but glad I took the chance. For me personally, it’s not bad, it’s not great but definitely good for my taste.
***I don’t equate these stories to real life. It’s definitely about personal taste and what you would or want to tolerate with the stories you read. I hope this review was helpful.

I have to be honest and say I didn’t take to Ethan in the beginning. He was controlling, unfeeling, a bully and I felt uncomfortable at times over his treatment to Lysa BUT, and it's a big but, by the end he redeemed himself and won me over.
I wanted to shake Lysa as she seemed so downtrodden. Whatever was thrown at her she just accepted. However, Lisa was actually a strong, although innocent, young woman who turned out to be quite the challenge for Ethan. A challenge he needed, even if he didn't welcome it.
I love a good dark read with dangerous, dirty talking alphas and women who test their sanity; hot passion that burns through the pages and a good strong plot that holds my attention.
His Captive ticked all of those boxes and it was easy to forget this was a debut release.
I really enjoyed this book and I especially loved the danger element, my heart was pounding and I was on the edge of my seat!
If you have any triggers then this book is definitely NOT for you.
However if, like me, you like taking a walk on the darker side then take a chance on this new author. You won't regret it.
The story line was fantastic loved the characters and chemistry. I am use to reading my female's having a bit more sass and bite but this time round she didn't and it was really well written and fitted gray with the story and other characters.
The sex was hot!!
I never give to much away when writing a review as I always like to be surprised when reading a book.
I 100% recommend this book and can't wait to see what else Emma has written. Another author to add to my list.
Congratulations an amazing book. I literally could not put it down!
