Review—Willing Captive by Belle Aurora
“Do you have any idea what could’ve happened? Do you know what happens if you die?” My eyes water. I don’t say a word but Nox implores, “Think of the consequences for f**k sake. Think of your family. How would they feel?” Tears streak past my temples. Nox asks quietly, “Do you know what it would do to me?” My heart skips a beat.”
Delilah (Lily) Flynn has been taken. Taken in order to keep her safe, safe from a threat she never knew existed. Nox is the man who took her. Charged with keeping her safe (and alive), Nox is the best person for the job…but damnit, Lily is different and little does he know; their lives are about to change in ways neither expected. Being unfeeling is par for the course, but something about this little “princess” with the glowing green eyes, and long auburn hair…she just might be the death of him instead.
“Strong. Safe. Secure.”
Those are the words that come to mind when Lily looks at Nox.
“She finally saw the connection. She finally felt the chemistry. And, clearly braver than I am, she finally decided to risk humiliation to find out if what we have is something worth pursuing. She’s killin’ me slowly, and she doesn’t even know it.”
Resentment turns to desire the longer Lily is with Nox in “hiding” and being that all of these feelings are new to Lily; acting on them, especially with a man like Nox is more than just a little intimidating. I love her fire, her fearlessness. No man will ever turn down a woman and Nox doesn’t disappoint. What he didn’t count on was the fact that she brought more out in him than he ever thought anyone would; he wants to share, make promises, plans, a future…but something goes horribly wrong and all that’s left in the fiery rubble is the memories of what could’ve been. *sobbing*
“Doesn’t matter where you are, baby. I’ll come for you.”
This book is nothing short of AMAZING! I can’t even begin to express my thoughts because I’m so all over the place. Belle, you lady, are my freaking hero right now. I can’t say anything about this book that I would change or that even bothered me…it was just THAT good! The Dual POV (a complete weakness of mine) was perfect, reading things from both Nox and Lily’s POV…ummm, yeah, loved it. Well written, complete with everything I want in a book—emotion, mystery, badass chicks, alpha males, a little blood, hot and steamy sex, heartbreak, happy tears…yep, Willing Captive has it all! And that ending…GAH! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect ending. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Truly a new favorite, I cannot wait for more (even if it’s just a glimpse). Fabulous!
**5 Lock Me Up and Throw Away the Key Stars**
SynopsisDelilah “Lily” Flynn is used to her drab existence. Lily’s been living it for twenty two years. Her boring life is suddenly turned on its head when she’s rudely kidnapped from her bedroom. Or so she thinks. Nox Taylor is far too high up in his field to be assigned a babysitting job. There’s nothing more he wants than to complete his mission so he can be rid of the smartass tomboy, Lily. Day after day, Nox watches Lily and her strange ways. She’s unlike any woman he’s ever met. Getting close to the girl is purely for her own protection…right? Lily never imagined she’d make her first real friends in captivity. What lengths would she go through to keep them? (Author note: This is NOT a dark romance.)
