Willing Captive by Belle Aurora
(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?
I loved Lily, 23 year old Lily seems like a teenager, she has had an over protected father since time began, but loved him none the less. She does as she’s told, and has no friends except her books, Lily shares our obsession with reading, her bedroom was a wall to wall library and she had an e-reader, I adored her!
“How many books do you think there are?”
His voice carried a hint of amusement when he replies ”At least ten thousand”
And my ovaries explode.
Slightly weak-kneed, I hold onto the doorframe and choke out, ”Wow.”
Lily was feisty, witty and brave. She humiliated herself many times and thats the kind of brave I loved Lily for. She took the bull between the horns and dared to go for what she wanted. She was my kinda girl.
Her full name was Delilah, her sister was Terah and they were very close. Terah was the tare-away between the two of them, she liked to be sneaky and wanted Lily to do the same, but Lily had different ideas, she would rather be living in another world of erotica and romance. (Don’t you just love her?)
“Fine! Become a crazy cat lady. See if I care. Don’t say I didn’t try to help when your stroking your pussies all night long wishing someone was stroking yours.”
Their Dad doted on them, he was an Irishman and I loved him as soon as I met him. I found myself reading along in an Irish twang! He was such a protective soul, more so with Lily!
“Losing a child, as in a wee one passing away, I think ye come to terms with. It’s so final. I’m not saying it would be easy, just that it’s permanent But almost losing a child…”
Nox, we don’t get much background details into his character at first, and we don’t need it, we just really really need Nox!! He is sweet without knowing it. He is strong, and caring without even trying to be, he is a natural alpha male who was born to protect. He is also fit as feck!! Oh he could come and protect me any day! Unfortunately his journey in life is not an easy one. Belle had me smiling and laughing one minute then in a nano second I was filled with sorrow. That’s because Lily loved to cry, she happy cried, she sad cried, she even sexy cried.
I didn’t see that coming, I didn’t expect tears from this book, I was fecking tricked!! Yes!! I FECKING UGLY CRIED!! I felt the emotions of both Nox and Lily deep inside my gut, I literally felt like I was living this story through their body, mind and soul. There were quite a few parts where I felt Every.Single.Tingle in her Tuppence!! It was hot, my reading glasses steamed up more than once, that’s for sure.
This story took me by surprise and I loved every second of it. There was only a few main characters and I fell for them all. Boo was a bad-ass lady who had a great heart, I want her as my big sister. I liked the confidence she instilled in Lily. Rock was a hottie, I totally pictured his tan skin and his firm abs sparring with Nox. These characters were definitely a necessity. Without them the book wouldn’t be the same. At times I was living in their lives too, I felt their pain in their anonymity and I would liked to have delved into their pasts. Even the background characters pulled me in. I’m sure there is lots of scope for their own books.
I am thrilled to say that I have found another fantastic author, her writing style is amazing. She had me wetting my knickers with laughter wishing I was wearing a tenner lady at times, then I would be sobbing my little heart out at the turn of a page. This takes talent and Belle Aurora has it in abundance. I’ll definitely be stalking her regularly!
Summary: This was my first encounter with Belle Aurora and it certainly will not be my last. She blew me away.
