When Amy escaped the prison cell she’d been trapped in for years she had no idea how hard it would be to live again. Six months after the guy who kept her hostage died she is still looking for a way to break free from the shadow of fear that keeps haunting her.

Guilt hurts, and it’s left Rich lost. He is drinking in a bar with his friends when he sees a girl who prods him out of the listlessness he’s been trapped by since he turned himself around from a bad guy to good man.

AUTHOR BIO:

Jane

Jane is a writer of authentic, passionate and emotional Historical and New Adult romance and author of a No.1 bestselling Historical Novel,’The Illicit Love of a Courtesan, as well as a Kindle overall Top 25, bestselling author. She began her first historical novel at sixteen, but a life full of adversity derailed her as she lives with the restrictions of Ankylosing Spondylitis. When she finally completed a novel it was because she was determined not to reach forty still saying, I want to write. Now Jane is writing a Regency series as well as contemporary, new adult, stories and she is thrilled to be giving her characters life in others’ imaginations at last.

You might think that Jane was inspired to write by Jane Austen, especially as she lives near Bath in the United Kingdom, but you would be wrong. Jane’s favourite author is Anya Seton, and the book which drew her into the bliss of falling into historical imagination was ‘Katherine’ a story crafted from reality. Jane has drawn on this inspiration to discover other real-life love stories, reading memoirs and letters to capture elements of the past, and she uses these to create more realistic plots. ‘Basically I love history and I am sucker for a love story. I love the feeling of falling in love; it’s wonderful being able to do it time and time again in fiction.’ Jane is also a Chartered Member of the Institute of Personnel and Development in the United Kingdom, and uses this specialist understanding of people to bring her characters to life.

My Review

This is the first book I have read from this author & it was only as I was reading it & trying to put the pieces together I realised it is actually part of a series .. I think I would definitely have benefited from reading the previous two because the story includes aspects that happened then. However I was able to continue & get the gist of it.

We hear from both Amy & Rich .. they each tell their side of the story. It’s pretty deep in places, includes some steamy scenes as well as some heart wrenching moments. It started well & the descriptive writing surrounding the funeral of Rich’s best friend showed his vulnerability & gave him the option of changing from the bad boy into a more caring guy.
 
I found the whole concept of the abduction & subsequent moving on a bit rushed but it gave a basis for the story & interlinked the people. The fact they were both ‘hurt/used’ by the same person (Ryan) is an interesting twist & it is fate that brings them together.
Easy to read, nice to pass the time & a cute ending. stars-3-0._V192197091_
Thanks to the author & Xpresso Book Tours for the opportunity to read this in exchange for my honest opinion.
