Review - Captive by K.M. Fawcett


The last thing Addy Dawson remembers is a blazing inferno and freezing river water overtaking her lungs. When she awakens, Addy finds herself on a strange, alien planet, trapped in a cell with no doors, no windows-- and to her horror-- a naked warrior who claims to be her mate.

Review: OMG! What a dang good story this was! I fell in love at page one and was held breathless until the end! I hung on every word and was so upset for the story to end but alas what is a good story without a beginning, a middle, and an ending?

Of course I loved Max...who could not have loved Max but without Addy and her strong kick butt will to survive attitude I am not sure Max would have made it much longer continuing on as he was having to. He had all but done lost his will to keep going. He had succumbed to the way his life was and felt broken but Addy inspired and put some new spunk in him and awakened a need to survive even if not for himself but for her and to see that she got to freedom.

They were never meant to fall in love only just to breed for their "masters" and be good little pets the rest of the time. This was just a new concept that interested me a great deal. I just can't imagine being swept off to an alien location and being meant to breed and serve as mere entertainment for the "higher beings". I would like to think I would be all spunky as Addy and try everything I can to escape back to life as I knew it but there were actually humans who enjoyed living this way and had no desire to go back.

One of my favorite quotes from the story: Well, he'd be in for a disappointment. She had three rules about sex: it was never casual, never used as a weapon, and never, ever given as a thank-you gift. That's what fruit baskets were for.

About the Author:

K.M. Fawcett was a born romantic. At six years old, she would beg her parents to take her to a restaurant with “soft music and candles” where she could drink Shirley Temples and twirl on the dance floor. As she grew, her desire to be whisked into a romantic adventure by a knight in shining armor also grew – to the point of annoying her friends and family. When she received A Knight In Shining Armor (a novel by Jude Deveraux) for her eighteenth birthday, she fell in love…with the romance genre.
