After one passionate night together, Alex Jensen and Casey Carlson became teen parents. But, Casey isn’t able to leave his house because of a rare disorder, so Alex is certain there’s no chance at a relationship between the two of them.
As their daughter, now nearing four, starts to want her father to be a bigger part of her life, Alex and Casey realize they have a lot of unsettled emotions from their brief teenage romance. Alex starts to crave him—but also tries to remind herself she can’t have a life with someone who can’t leave his home.
But, when Casey says there’s more to the story of why he is housebound, Alex jumps into action with a plan to save him from his adoptive parents, who may be more his captors than his caretakers…
Will Alex be able to save Casey? Or are the consequences of attempting to rescue him too high? And when she finally learns Casey’s deepest, darkest secret…will she be able to handle it?
‘Captive’ is a steamy paranormal romance novella of 40,000 words. It contains several steamy scenes and some language, and therefore is best suited for readers 18 years of age and older. (less)
3.75-4 Stars to Captive by Marisol Logan.
Captive is my first book by Marisol Logan. It was a short and cute story of love reuniting. As far as the writing talent goes, I thought the story flowed well and I was engaged from the beginning. The dialogue was good too. My disappointment was the single POV told from Alex, the heroine. I feel it should have been told by both, but if it had to be only single, it should have been from Casey. Of course that is just my opinion because he was the one with the tragic past and questionable future. I really think having his POV, being privy to his thoughts, would have allowed me to enjoy this book even more. Casey was the one that had most of my attention and concern.
Regardless, Captive was an enjoyable story. I read it quickly; the pace was steady. There was definitely some suspense and mystery in regards to Casey’s parents. No matter how many guesses I came up with, I was wrong. Lol.
Alex and Casey belonged together. I felt sad for them both. So many years were taken from them. I easily felt the chemistry between them. They were meant to be together.
The story’s main conflict was actually resolved easily. It ended a bit abruptly. I also want to add that I was a little disappointed with the ending in regards to Casey’s parents. Without giving anything away, I felt that because of what they had done to Casey, they should have answered for it.
That said, I want to say that I would definitely like to read more from this author.
