Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩.5 hat review:
Abducted has me so torn. What I loved in this book I really LOVED, but at the same time the pacing of the story really held me back from loving every aspect. Some moments would be entirely too fast while others would drag and have me losing interest. The intricacies of the families at times were also a bit too much causing more confusion than providing something more to the story. But back to those parts I LOVED, namely Domenico and Ari. I loved how fiercely protective Domenico was of Ari. He would do anything for her, even if that includes hurting her. I loved he strength Ari had also. She was constantly full of determination and fight, never giving up even for a second. Overall the characters are what really made this story worth it for me.
Heather’s 🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
Ok…. Abducted is loosely based on a modern day Beauty and the Beast. I enjoyed the story for the most part. It has a really good storyline, but it really dragged in some parts and in other places it was too fast. In the fast paced parts it felt rushed like the author just wanted to get it over with. Now with that being said what I did enjoy are the little twists the author liked to throw at us. Those are the main reason that kept me going. I had to know just how those little twists were going to play out.
Ari was just a pawn in the game of life. When she decides to do what she wants, that is when she has her first taste of freedom. She does what she needs to survive, and makes no apologies for it. She has fire and sass and refuses to be played and placed like her father wants. Domencio is all alpha and does what needs to be done to protect what he considers his. When their worlds collide that is when all hell breaks loose. We get to meet all the players, and we see just what these two will do to survive.
Somewhere in Chicago…
The chains chafed my wrists, making me wish I were still in my cage. Though it lacked privacy, the cage at least had a bed, and in there I wasn’t restrained with my arms above my head. But I was in Domenico’s domain. The small bedroom-like area was created from a previous office. There was a lamp and a mattress with a blanket, but those were the only creature comforts. The rest of the room retained both the look and smell of the rest of the decaying structure.
With no way to tell time, I wasn’t sure how long I’d been there. All I knew was that I was tired. Being held against my will caused spikes in my adrenaline, and the subsequent crashes left me drained. The small panic attacks had lessened over the past few weeks, but there was an undercurrent of strife, and I feared what would happen if things got out of control.
I stared at the bed, wishing I were on it. All that did was cause the memories of him inside me to come slamming down. The absolute owning of my body by him and him alone. The way he made me come undone.
Feelings that I shouldn’t have with his touch, but I did.
Feelings I drowned in as he consumed me.
I am Domenico’s…for now.
And that was the thought that always sent questions spiraling out of control and a spike of fear to run through me.
I was a caged bird. A pet awaiting a sentence bound to be more grim than any fairy-tale horror.
