"This isn't up for debate, doc. You're not leaving."
Oh. My. Gahhhhh!! This book captured me from the start!
After being kidnapped, Claudia didn't know what her future held. Would she live or die? Could she ever get away? She really had no clue that it would lead her into a tailspin of emotion she kept buried away. It also lead her to someone, who in a lot of ways, was just as broken as she was.
"I should have been terrified not...entranced."
Bradley brought Claudia to his apartment to help take care of his best friend, Sean, who has been shot. Not straying away from someone in pain, she goes into doctor mode and fixes him. But while she's stuck/locked inside his bedroom, she finds herself being drawn to him. Sean finds that he can't resist her either.
"Do I get a lollipop then, Dr. Ellers?"
"Only if you're a good boy."
"That's not really my style."
This book was Stockholm Syndrome at its finest!! No matter how much she tried to break away from Sean and his friend, Claudia felt herself being pulled right back to him. I'll admit that I would too because...wow! He has this sexy way about him that almost makes you forget the man he really is. Almost.
"He was such an enigma: unbearably cocky, somewhat terrifying, and shockingly tender by turns. And I couldn't seem to resist him."
I can not wait to read the rest of this series!!! I have to know what happens after Claudia finds out the secret Sean was hiding. Will it utterly destroy her or will she still be left fighting her feelings for this confusing man?
Eeeep! This book was suspenseful, sexy and sinful all in one! And I want more!!
"Are you going to really keep me here forever?"
"Right now, forever with you doesn't seem like such a bad fate."
In all though I love this story so far, a change of menu for me reading wise.
Book was well written. Had a good storyline, but I couldn't stand Claudia or her betrayal at the end. Loved Sean, but he shouldn't have kept saving the stupid girl he didn't kidnap in the first place.
The beginning was great, it threw me right into the story. But within pages I felt like too much happened too quickly. Basically the pacing was off to me. I still was enjoying the story and the chemistry, but something about how it was told didn’t flow for me. This was the case on many levels: the trust, sex, intimate connections. I’m all for immediate attraction, but it is definitely hard to pull off and this fell just a little short of being realistic.
3rd ShelfClaudia annoyed me half the time. Her internal dialogue was what killed me. However, when she spoke and acted I really liked her. Maybe I just didn’t want to be in her head. I liked the way she was with Sean. I felt like I could see her personality better at different times. Again, that’s why this is a mixed bag for me.
Lastly, the fbi/mafia connections were too much and too coincidental. I think more of that will come out in the next book, but some of it was over the top and the storyline felt forced.
However, don’t think all this means I don’t rec it. I still did enjoy this story despite the hiccups I felt it had. I will definitely read the next installment and hopefully as I get more immersed in the world it will get better and better. It’s a great start, and I always love a damaged, broody, sexy and dirty talking hero.
Happy reading! Let me know what you think.
Long story short, she helps the injured party by the name of Seth, all the while fearing Bradley, and develops feelings for her patient/jailor. Yeah, it screams Stockholm but considering the way Claudia has lived her life until that moment, I say it's more than that in regards to what she feels for Sean. I feel the connection is believable, however, unfortunate and messed up.
Great cast of characters. Looking forward to more. I read straight through. I was that hooked. Highly recommend. And I have no idea why you were compared to E.L. James in a review I read. You're no E.L. James, you're better.
