(Author note: This is NOT a dark romance.)
Delilah “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?
**This is a stand alone novel and is unrelated to Friend-Zoned**
Loved this – the characters both Nox and Lily but then also the supporting characters particularly Rock and Boo – Oh my I am not ready to leave this world – I could pick this up again as I want to go back to the beginning and follow their journey of friendship.
How the author can take us on a journey with Lily through the emotions of having her entire life being placed under the microscope and in control of strangers to then come out the other side such a strong and dynamic person, the true Lily was just waiting to emerge and I loved her fight, her passion and her ability to love unconditionally. She was definitely held captive by forces out of her control but she fought her way to freedom to love and forge a new life for herself.
There is so much action, drama but the best part for me was the simple relationships and how they developed over the pages and then when Nox and Lily finally submit to their pure attraction well as the reader you are not left wanting at all – wink wink.
My favourite parts are when Lily after the first few days does not eat and the moment she gets clarity to own her situation and then when she is sitting on the bench at the cemetery towards the end of the book – those two moments for me were true turning points and my heart broke for two totally separate reasons.
The story is ended perfectly, it is all rounded up in a beautiful bow of a HEA and you get to see some magical moments in their life.
We are also given a sneak peak of RAW another of the authors work but this is defniately more on the dark side.
