SynopsisKidnapped. Taken to a private island. I never thought this could happen to me. I never imagined one chance meeting on the eve of my eighteenth birthday could change my life so completely. Now I belong to him. To Julian. To a man who is as ruthless as he is beautiful – a man whose touch makes me burn. A man whose tenderness I find more devastating than his cruelty. My captor is an enigma. I don’t know who he is or why he took me. There is a darkness inside him – a darkness that scares me even as it draws me in. My name is Nora Leston, and this is my story.

Were you a fan of Caleb and Captive in the Dark series? This book reminds me a lot of that book, and even some of the Consequences series. I really liked that this was a dark, twisted read. You know what I think I liked even more, that he didn't have a reason for her kidnapping other than...because he wanted her. NO ulterior motives, no head games, he just wanted her. When the story starts, you want to hate Julian for what he does for her, then slowly when you start to learn about Julian and Beth, you don't see them as captors but as people, you start to kind of like them. So did she. She starts to enjoy the life she has and all those wonderfully delicious things that Julian is opening her eyes to. Then it happens, her birthday rolls around and that is when stuff starts to spin around like a tornado. You've got feelings she didn't want to admit to, then a sickness that rolls around, drama with his 'job', death and chaos. Just when you think she may be getting what she always thought she wanted, now she realizes she doesn't want it at all and what she wanted, what she dreamt of, was what she had all along. And this is when you realize, you fell for Julian just like she did. This started off a little choppy for me, then I got sucked in and I was done for. I couldn't put it down. I had to know what Julian was gonna do next. What Nora was gonna do next, how was she going to survive.
I give this story 4 hearts
