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?
(Author note: This is NOT a dark romance.)
I’ve come to a conclusion. Belle Aurora is my forbidden candy. She writes the books I read for an escape from my other books. It’s my guilty pleasure and I soak up, lap up, absorb every word, and lick my fingers when I’m done. My brain is always happy. My body in desperate need to get happy (cue hubby).
I really had no idea what to expect with Willing Captive. I made assumptions based on the title. My mind went in the direction of Captive in the Dark by C.J. Roberts. Boy was I wrong.
I love Belle’s writing. At first, when reading Friend-Zoned, I thought she was funny and quirky and had the ability to be silly yet still tell a good story. I don’t find her quirky anymore. For me her writing has matured. Belle Aurora has an ability to write amazing characters, leads and sub-characters. You get to know everyone just enough to fall in love with them. You know an author has done their job when a sub-character makes you cry.
Yes I cried while reading Willing Captive.
Although I had several laugh out loud moments and just as many moments fanning myself. I also shed a few tears. Because underneath all this fun is a story about a young lady, Lilly, who’s had her world flipped upside down. Lilly is 22 and raised by an extremely protective father. She has had very little exposure to the outside world other than going to work with dear old dad every day.
That’s until the night she’s kidnapped by Nox.
Nox is a bad ass.
He’s all alpha.
He’s a man of few words.
He’s an asshole.
I love him.
I also love how Belle Aurora can make us fall in love with all her leading men no matter how nice or not nice they are. All the men in her books are fantastic. Even the guys hovering in the outskirts. And the women? OMG she writes the best female characters! They’re always strong, witty, sarcastic, and beautiful. Yes they say stupid things. They can be brutally honest. They even cry, sometimes too much. But it doesn’t matter because you’ll be so into the story that you’ll overlook the things you might find annoying in another book.
No I’m not saying Lilly was annoying. I’m just trying to make a point. 😉
I felt like Belle Aurora’s writing in Willing Captive was reminiscent of my beloved Kristen Ashley.
That’s a huge compliment people!!
Just in case you need more convincing this is for you!
Currently blind, I push my arms out towards the sound of his voice and they luckily connect with his chest, pushing him back about a hairs breadth. My face flushes more from embarrassment than rage.
“Goddamn it! Watch where the hell you’re going! This is why I don’t like the blindfold. Blindfolds are used in trust exercises, you moron, and I think it’s clear that I. Don’t. Trust. You!”
I’m shocked when he apologizes. “Sorry. Got distracted.”
This doesn’t placate me. Not one teeny bit. “And you’re meant to be protecting me? What the hell? Jeez, just feed me to the sharks, why don’t you!
