SYNOPSIS:

Love is blind…
Especially when you’ve been abducted.

Caught in the dredges of life, Elise had come to the grudging conclusion that mediocrity was all she’d ever have.
Until a routine shopping trip turns into a deadly affair.

Taken. Two men, one a brute and the other an enigma. A cabin in the woods. One dangerous agenda.

Blindfolded and held captive, Elise’s mundane existence just got a whole lot more interesting. Thrust into the unknown, held prisoner by a man with rough hands and a gentle voice, she’s faced with her own demise while struggling against a growing desire for the unacceptable—her captor.

Will Elise make out with her life—and heart—intact?

My Review:

4 Stars

 

A quick, romantic suspense with a happy ending and a twist you will never see coming, Taken is a great novella from J. C. Valentine.

 

There isn’t a lot I can say about the plot without giving something away, so I won’t even go there, but what I will say is you will like the hero and heroine, even when you aren’t supposed to.  Their connection isn’t instant, but it is palpable and grows from there.

 

Taken is the perfect read for when you have some Me time and you want something quick and entertaining.

My Review:

4.5/5 stars!!

Oh.  My.  Goodness!  This book!!

When the book opens, James the MC is 13 years old.  He is awkward and a little nerdy and gets bullied at school.  He finds it hard to make friends.  Then, he meets AJ and they quickly form a friendship.  Only, James has to move away suddenly.  Around the same time James leaves, a girl goes missing.  Skip forward 5 years and James is back in the town he grew up.  He reconnects with AJ and their friendship is rekindled.  But, another girl goes missing.  Is it a coincidence that James is back and a girl goes missing?  James knows he didn’t do it and he thinks he knows who did.

That is all I can give you without ruining one heck of a twist.  You honestly will not see it coming.  I can’t wait for you to read it and find out.  I was completely clueless.

Buried Secrets is seriously suspenseful perfection with one the best twists I have ever read!  I can tell you I was so shocked, words that I cannot type spewed from my mouth.  A fantastically written, brilliantly executed suspense novel.  This is a must read!

EXCERPT

Blackness surrounded him, its endless pools of ink swallowing him whole. He couldn’t see his hand in front of his face, but he felt the terror seeping through his skin, past his bones and making its way down to his very soul.

James knew he was in the throes of one of his nightmares again. He could never make out a thing, just knew the feeling it left him with.

He tried to make himself wake up, but couldn’t find his way out. The feeling that someone was coming for him caused panic to swell and his heart to accelerate, threatening to break free from his chest.

Not knowing what was coming, fear lacerating his insides, James started to run blindly. In his bed, his feet kicked out wildly, tangling in the linens and ratcheting up his terror, because to James, he was trapped.

His breathing labored and coming in short, sharp bursts, James cried out at the same time his body bolted upright in the bed. Sweat beaded on his brow and dampened his skin, his clothes suctioned to his body uncomfortably. He was clammy and winded, shaken, but he already felt better for knowing he was free from that awful feeling of suffocating terror that had threatened to overtake him just moments ago.

Scrubbing his hands down his face, James breathed deeply, hanging his head to his chest while his body calmed. As his adrenalin levels normalized, and he began to feel more like himself, James gave a final sigh of relief. Stabbing his fingers through his hair, he was readying himself to try to go back to sleep when he looked up and choked on his breath.

His entire body went rigid in an instant. His breathing, his heartbeat. Everything ceased to work. In the next instant James threw himself back against his headboard, fear gripping him once again.

He couldn’t believe what he was seeing. He would chance rubbing his eyes to be sure his vision was true, only he was too frightened of what he would find once he opened them again.
