Publisher's Summary

When I opened my eyes, I was in a cell, my body covered in bruises.

Not a jail.

I'd been kidnapped and imprisoned.

I wasn't alone. I shared the cell with Garin Woods, the man I'd loved since I was a kid.

The man I couldn't be with because of the secret. A man who would kill me if he found out what that secret was.

Someone wanted to torture me.

Torture us.

One of us deserved it.

It wasn't Garin.

3.5 stars - Good Dark Story with a Great Narrator!

3.5 stars

I'm on the fence with this one. There were things I really liked and some that I didn't like as much. I do enjoy a dark romance book, I do even enjoy a kidnapping, I do enjoy a Anti-Hero! This book had all of those things. I spent most of the book convinced I knew what was happening and in the end I was right but the author did have me questioning it a lot through out the book. I had a little bit of a hard time with how Kyle reacted to the imprisonment, I needed her to be a little more freaked out by it and I needed her to be at least a little scared but instead she acted like she was just curious. The biggest oddity for me was how no matter what they did to her, she was all about having sex when it was over, I guess I couldn't really see that as realistic. I liked the twists and turns the author added to this story even though they were obvious instead of surprising.

Garin was a contradiction for sure. He was mad at her for lying but he was lying. He wanted her to come clean when he had no plans to come clean. He said he loved her and would protect her but who exactly was he protecting her from... the way I see it, she needed protection from him. In the end I gave this book 3.5 stars, it was better than average and had me intrigued from the beginning but it left me feeling a little flat in the end.

The narration was AMAZING! Aaron Shedlock is a great narrator and he was a great choice for this story.Since this is a Dual POV I probably would have liked dual narration a little better but it didn't take away from the story at all.

Horrible!!

Where do I began?? Why is she having sex, willingly, every other day while locked in a cell and being tortured. She was unbelievably weak and stupid. Who thinks about sex in that situation. She was also naive. She didn't think Garin would be hurt if she didn't give up the killer's identity. Then she told everything after seeing him hurt. The writing was not good and the story was infuriating.

3.5 Dark and Twisty Stars

It is about to get real, I tell you what I had NO earthly idea what I was getting into with this book and wow is it all kinds of dark and twisty.

I had an idea about this story and how everything was going to go down but it just never grasped hold but I was right in the end.

I like dark and twisty so for a good part of the book I was hooked then a few things happened and even my dark and twisty took a step back. But what kept me going was the narration.

Aaron just had a tone that soothes you and makes you take notice of what is going on. I very much liked his female tone that he uses, because then it makes his male character even that more lush to listen to.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Abuse Lover manifest

I like books that tell a different story. Books that address different paths to love. I even like dark and twisted but this book missed the mark for me. It true that in most books the heroine has to be somewhat naive to make the story interesting. However, in this book I found the heroine downright stupid. Her reasoning never made sense to me. Some of the circumstances that she choose to have sex under are concerning and I found myself thinking about how gross and unsexy the scene must be. There is no Hero in this book Gerin is a liar and an abuser. The couple's story lacks love and is only about a Big D and rough sex. I guess sometimes that's all you need. The narration was good but since most of the story was from the female POV I feel it would have came across better with duet or female narrator.

Dark, gritty and captivating!

Prisoned by Marni Mann was dark, gritty and captivating. I can’t believe I waited so long to dive into this series! Narrated by Aaron Shedlock, we delve into Kyle and Garin’s story. Friends as children, they went down separate paths. When they reunite, they then find themselves prisoners. Why? What secrets are they hiding? The story was full of twists and turns as we see the steamy chemistry between Kyle and Garin as the push and pull between heightens. How will it all end? Listened and reviewed for Sultry Sirens Book Blog. Happy listening!

Dark, dark, DARK!

This story is full of twists and turns. I'm probably too impatient and so I was infuriated, being teased again and again and not being given the information I wanted until about 80% in— and by this point I'd already guessed it correctly. If this were an ebook, I would have "cheated" and read ahead just to find out and then have gone back to the beginning. This is one dark story— so dark that I didn't expect it not to end with a HEA. I was very happily mistaken! Anthony got what he deserved, and that makes the story end in one satisfyingly high note. Aaron Shedlock did a terrific job narrating, I just think it would have been better if there was a female narrator to read Kyle's chapters. Prisoned is a second-chance contemporary mafia romance written in dual POV. It's an angsty standalone that ends with a HEA and deals with sensitive subjects some may find triggering. No cliffhanger, no cheating. I received this book at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Dark be prepared

Prisoned by Marni Mann is a dark romance filled with suspense and twists and turns throughout. It is a gripping story about two childhood friends Garin and Kyle. I listened to the audio and found myself not wanting to stop, although it was out of my comfort zone. The story is told from both of their points of view, however, it was one narrator. I though the narrator did a good job and was a great choice. Garin and Kyle's lives drift apart after tragedy occurs and Kyle moves away. Brought back together after another tragedy and they reunite. The events that occur after will leave you mind spinning and wondering what is real and what is not and what really happened? This book is very dark and sometimes listening to it was tough but in the end I really did like it. There were some difficult scenes too, and a few times I felt my heart beating in my chest. Dark romance and Marni at their finest!
