Publisher's Summary

Cilla

The Beast had Belle. Killian Black has me. How I got here doesn’t matter, even though he says it does. Says it was my choice. He doesn’t get it, though. It wasn’t ever a choice for me. And now, he’s changing the rules. The agreement was one month. For 30 days, I’d be his. He’s no longer satisfied with my body alone, though. He wants my soul, too. Wants every part of me. And even though I can pretend I’m safe when I lie beneath him, this man does something to me. Something wicked. A thing that will break me.

Killian

Cilla made the choice. She offered the deal. I just took her up on it. So what if I changed the rules halfway in? I’m not apologizing for it. See, Cilla and me, we’re the same. She’s dark. As dark as me. Something happened to her. Something bad. It damaged her. But it’s not a hero she seeks. It’s an avenging angel. A dark knight. That, I can do. I’ll slay her dragons, but it’ll cost her, because in return, I want everything. And I’ll take it. She’s mine.

Captive Beauty is a stand-alone dark romance.

A 5⭐️ DARK & MULTI-LAYERED JOURNEY TO REDEMPTION

Firstly, this is not, no way no how, a paranormal story.. I think Audible’s got it under the wrong sub-genre and I’ll bring it to their attention in the hopes that they will put it right. Now on with my review...

What a riveting and wholly unstoppable listen this was.. it’s often dark, it’s hot, it’s got a sexy dark alpha anti-hero, it’s got a strong-willed but damaged heroine and it’s got a taboo secret that nobody should endure. But, the main love story between two very damaged characters, starts off as anything but a love story. Killian (aka Kill) is Mafia.. he owns a high class Strip Club and Priscilla (aka Cilla) has a troubled brother who is about to get his legs broken unless Cilla agrees to Kill’s outrageous demands. For 30 days (and nights) Cilla’s body will belong to Kill - he can do whatever he likes to it.. then her brother can go free. In the beginning Kill’s sexual demands were high.. he seeked total domination over Cilla’s body.. but Cilla wouldn’t play by his rules.. and soon they discovered tragic similarities, felt the pull of their sizzling chemistry, experienced passion and awoke dormant emotions. However, before there could be any type of HEA ending, a past demon would have to be slain, submission would have to be felt, dark memories would have to be exorcised, a brother and sister would have to break before they could mend.. and two damaged sibling would have to finally forgive themselves. Only then can healing begin.. and only then will love prevail.

Worth a credit? This bartered captive story had depth, it had raw undiluted heartache, it had drool-worthy, sigh-worthy and fan-worthy sexcapades, it had character growth, it had some intertwined characters from previous books, it had redemption.. and it had love. A captivating story of wills and wants in the push ‘n push relationship between Cilla and Kill, its well-paced well-written chapters flowed easily and it instantly became a very addictive book. But, for me, what made this story truly come alive, truly shine and truly pop was the skilled dual POV narration by Kate and Christian (sigh) whose vocal talents evoked a multitude of feels, enabled graphic mental imagery, made this listen memorable.. and YES made it creditworthy too.

Skip It

I love a good dark romance but it has to be equal parts disturbing and written well. I don't understand the near perfect rating of this book. I gave up by chapter 4. Just listen to Irrevocable or Reaper: Boston Underworld for well written smart dark romance.

The Story just ended

This book began so intriguingly. A hint of dark and secrets. The secrets are never spoken but you kind of get the idea of what they are then the book ends. There was so much more story there. What about the other kids that were abused. What about supporting the one girl who tried to speak out. What about their lives moving forward. WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF THE STORY!! I want my credit back!!

the narrators were great but...

*possible spoiler alert* the Hero was a glorified hypocritical rapist... not my cup of tea. I don't care if it's not violent, or if her body reacts by become aroused... that's not that uncommon, its still rape. so no... the Hero never found redemption in my eyes, especially towards the end when he beat with a belt "for her own good". consensual Bdsm... that's one thing, but that wasn't even...

It's like groundhog day!

Okay so at first I was like hell yeah because his voice is just so damn sexy but then it turned into every other book out there. There has to be more than this out there in adult audiobook world!!! Does anyone have one original thought in their brain. Are we all looking for a man to save us from ourselves by ****ing us against our will?? I don't mind rape stories but does the female character have to be so pathetic??? And then of course it comes with a happy fairytale ending.....

Modern day Beauty and the Beast

I went in completely blind, didn't even glance at the blurb before jumping in, and it was the best decision I could have made! This book completely captivated me and drew me in from the very first paragraph!!! This book completely took over my life for 2 days!!! Natasha really knows how to write a sexy "bad" guy who really isn't that bad!

The narration was amazing!

I need more!!!!

Stop the presses! Natasha Knight gave us one amazing story here! I literally could not put it down. The characters were soo flawed yet so perfect. They were rugged, raw and REAL! Their broken sides called to each other. What started as a sister sacrificing herself to save her brother, turned into salvation for herself as well. I can't say enough how much I loved this story. It very much felt like a dark retelling of Beauty and the Beast but in a completely original way. It was A dark, captivating tale.

Narration was perfect. Both Christian and Kate gave amazing performances. They embodied their roles perfectly and were beyond a pleasure to listen to. I was sad to hear it end.

Thank You Thank You Thank You!

A THRILLINGLY DARK AND BEASTLY AUDIO LISTEN!

CAPTIVE BEAUTY by Natasha Knight, which puts a dark, sinister and spectacularly sexy twist on the classic Beauty and the Beast trope, completely held my heart captive!!

EEEK! Talk about THRILLS, CHILLS and GOOSEBUMPS GALORE! For from the moment our big, broody beast, Killian Black, strikes a deal with a petrified Priscilla Hawking to be at his mercy for thirty days, in order to pay off her a family debt, you can feel the heat and the combustible sparks radiating off them in waves! I have said it once, twice, umpteenth times and it bears repeating here. NOBODY writes dominantly sexy, lethally dangerous anti-heroes quite like Natasha Knight! And Killian in all his dark, growly glory lit me ON FIRE!

But as cold and cruel as our beast is, he has more than met his match in the beautifully broken and alluring defiant Cilla, who in many ways may be even more damaged than he is! And when he's not dominating, debasing and ravishing every single delectable inch of her, he is desperate to unravel every single one of her secrets. For this bewitching captive not only draws out the sick, deviant monster in him but she also taps into the ferocious protector who vows to safeguard her at all costs.

Who would have thunk it, huh?!

I love the dichotomy that the always brilliant Ms. Knight brought out in these characters! For underneath Killian's darkly foreboding, scarred exterior, as it turns out, he's not quite as beastly as he appears. There is a kind, chivalrous and compassionate side to him as well, even though he is the first to profess he is NO HERO! And in all honestly, I was as mesmerized by the softer, gentler, more achingly tender facets of his personality as I was titillated by the dark depravity that always lurks just beneath the surface!

And though on the outside Cilla is the picture of innocence and fragility, she has a backbone of steel and possesses sordid appetites that call to the primal predator within Kill. As well as some dark skeletons in her closet that have taken a devastating toll on her life. I just relish how even though she claims to hate her captor with every breath she takes, in truth, Killian is the only man who she trusts enough to surrender her heart, body and soul.

I was truly transfixed by this dark, gritty love story from start to finish, and I relished how these two fractured souls are bound together by pain and passion, darkness and despair, and how when their broken parts are fused together as one, there is the glimmer of hope that they might make each other whole! But is love and salvation truly possible for these two damaged souls? Gotta read to find out but I will say that as the mounting tension slowly builds to a shattering crescendo and all their demons are finally laid bare, prepare to have your heart ripped out of your chest in the BEST. POSSIBLE. WAY!

Along with the scintillating, filthy hot interludes, pulse pounding intrigue and spine-chilling suspense, I liked how the side characters were woven into the plot. And especially enjoyed the cameo appearances from the memorable baddies from Ms. Knights other books. The brief scenes with ruthless mafia kingpin Dominic Benedetti and his cousin Giovanni Santa Maria, a powerful mobster in his own right, were a blast! Talk about testosterone overload! I think the author did a great job of seamlessly crossing these characters over into each other's dark, brutal worlds.

As for the narrations, this is my first audio listen by Christian Fox and Kate Genevieve and I must say it was LOVE AT FIRST LISTEN! Both these narrators breathed flesh and blood life into these vibrant, multi-dimensional characters, bringing out fascinating shades of the characters fiery, combative personalities, and infusing their scenes with heartbreaking tenderness and raw, unbridled emotion as well! And when they depicted this feisty beauty and her filthy mouthed beast in the throes of hot, torrid passion, it was THERMAL!

Highly recommend!
