Willing Captive By Belle Aurora
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.)
Lily lives her life under the protective thumb of her loving father, but soon she realises that not only is she truly not living, her life is under threat. It is after she is held in protective captivity with the devastatingly sexy Nox Taylor that Lily begins to see all the possibilities she has missed out on. But as she spends more time with her gorgeous protector, their feelings and chemistry become harder to deny. And their strictly platonic relationship that must be maintained for both their safety, begins to crack.
From the moment I began Willing Captive I was simply consumed with the witty dialogue, instantly falling into Lily’s orderly world that is suddenly turned on its head.
Lily is an incredibly infectious character. She is mischievously rebellious and there were scenes were her defiance had me laughing so hard it brought tears to my eyes. She may be strong, defiant and self sufficient, yet it is the moments when Nox tears down her tough exterior and sarcasm that reveal a sweet young woman who is trying her cope with her life and the new feelings and emotions that have come with it.
Nox. Oh Nox – I want one! This gorgeously sweet man, is utterly relentless in his pursuit to protect Lily, and conveys such a tough no nonsense attitude toward keeping her safe. It is the way in which he protects her in every aspect and shows her such a fierce love that utterly stole my heart though. He is simply the definition of male perfection.
The secondary characters also play a great role within the story, which I loved. More importantly the characters that Belle Aurora has constructed feel so realistic, and I found myself not only consumed with the forming relationship between Nox and Lily, but also the developments with both Rock and Boo.
The writing is so fantastically witty, and although this is by no means a dark, heartbreaking story, the pace at times slows right down to a seductive flow that will leave you with a racing heart. While the first part of the book held me captive with the humour and growing chemistry between Nox and Lily, the final chapters left me in tears, sobbing at the twists and turns Belle weaved perfectly into this story.
Belle Aurora creates a captivating, sexy banter between these two characters that constantly butt heads, yet complement each other so greatly. This was such a beautiful and incredible love story, about finding love in unexpected places and learning to live.
I absolutely LOVED this book. I cannot recommend it highly enough, except to merely tell you that you need to read it. It was quite simply perfect. Perfect sexy, dominating alpha male who is fierce in love and protecting what is his. Perfect heroine, who exudes strength, despite the fearful circumstances she is faced with. And, Belle Aurora writes a book with the most perfect amount of angst to keep your heart beating rapidly at times. There were also the most tender love scenes I have ever read. This was a stunningly written book that simply made my heart ache, in the best possibly way.
