Publisher's Summary

Author Note: This is NOT a dark romance.

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?

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    "MUCH MORE THAN I WAS EXPECTING & ADDICTIVE TOO"

    Delilah has always had a sheltered life with an overprotective but loving Father and now, unaware that her life has been threatened, he takes extreme measures to protect his daughter from the danger she's in.

    This is part witty, romantic comedy and part serious too with loveable characters, a feisty Heroine, a broody sexy alpha Captor called Nox and there's plenty of action, suspense, humor, fun filled banter, twists, drama, sexual tension, romance and a few tender lovemaking scenes. There's a love-hate relationship between Nox and Delilah and a slow building attraction which nicely develops, with the help of some life threatening events, into a beautiful, touching and sweet love story. But, when everything suddenly comes to a dramatic conclusion, there's also heartbreak, loss and tears. It has an emotional tear-jerker of an ending and a very sweet Epilogue.

    Worth a credit? Told from both POV's by two good narrators and a very well written enjoyable and entertaining plot that always manages to capture the mood, portray the character's personalities and describes how two very different people manage to fall in love despite the circumstances. Which all adds up, IMO, to a very creditworthy listen.

    "Good narration and a great story"

    Great narrators for this story. The story itself was interesting and hard to put down. I would recommend this one to a friend.

    "Lovely story ..... so worth the time and credit!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Willing Captive the most enjoyable?

    The plot, the narrator, the characters ... all combined to make a great listen!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Willing Captive?

    SPOILER ALERT
    The explosion. I will say no more...... it is the pinnacle of the story.


    Which character – as performed by Angela Starling and Alastair Haynesbridge – was your favorite?

    No favorites .... both performances equally added to the intrigue, romance and plot of the story line.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Sometimes dreams do come true......


    Any additional comments?

    This is so worthy of a credit!!!

    "Surprisingly good!"

    This is a book where the love between two people actually gets a fair amount of time to develop and I loved that.
    The conversations are funny, serious and sweet.
    I was totally hooked and was nearly in tears when the safehouse blew up and Nox was still there. And don't get me started on the time after when Lily mourns over Nox.

    This was well worth a credit :)

    Recently discovered audiobooks and adore their existence, also it should be noted, that I can easily develope a crush on a narrator's voice.

    "Does This Count?"

    Does gushing over how much you liked a book count as a review? Cause I did like this book so so much, and if there is anything to complain about, it would simply be that I wish the threat had been greater...no wait, no greater, but more--involved(?) in the storyline. Otherwise, great read, great range of love able characters, and great narrators!

    "Book has potential but female narrator ruined it"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    At first, I couldn't tell if i didn't like the writing or the female narrator who speaks the majority of the book but then i realized, i enjoyed the book during the male narrator . The female narrator ruined it for me to the point that I couldn't finish the book. It seems, based on the reviews, that others don't have the same opinion.


    Would you recommend Willing Captive to your friends? Why or why not?

    Nope; I can't recommend a book i can't finish.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She sounded and acted like a teenager and distracted from the story.

    "EXCELLENT STORY, TO BAD 95% WAS FEMALE NARRATED!!!"
    What did you like best about Willing Captive? What did you like least?

    I love the whole story and deserves 5 STARS!!
    However, what I dislike is that 95% of it is perfeomed by a female narrator, even when it should had been better the real male performance.
    I'm sorry but this is just my personal honest opinion!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Willing Captive?

    The most memorable moments is when I started cursing because it should had been better to heard the male presence. Lots of times I felt as if the spell was broken!!


    What three words best describe Angela Starling and Alastair Haynesbridge ’s performance?

    N/A


    Could you see Willing Captive being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I HOPE SO!!


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, performance of both narrators was good but it could have been amazing if Alastair Haynesbridge had been the one to perform the male character's narration instead of Angela Starling pretending to be a male.

    Mom of 3. Voracious reader and listener. If I don't have the ability to pick up a book, then I grab an audio book.

    "It's NOT A DARK ROMANCE"
    Any additional comments?

    Here I am, reading and reviewing another book my dear friend Jenn Hype has forced on me.

    And here I am completely in love with a new set of characters.

    Nox is the alpha male you want at your back. He's protective and charming and totally professional.
    Lily is the heroine you wish you could be. She's fun, full of life, and a pain in the ass.

    So, it only makes sense that when these two get together that sparks fly and the chemistry jumps from the pages (Well, in my case the speakers because I listened to the audio). Nox with his seriousness, Lily with her determination to learn the truth. Their need to find the one thing they've been missing.

    I loved the back and forth, the push and pull.

    And did I mention that this is NOT a dark romance. I waited for it. And waited for it. And waited for it.

    But the dark just wasn't there.

    Given the way this story begins, it just seemed like it should be dark. I know the blurb says it's not, but it *felt* like it would be.

    It's not. So, sit back and enjoy this perfection. And try not to cry because I failed.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The book has you liking the characters but the lack of information keeps it kinda boring.

    "fabulous"

    I loved listening to this, both readers were well picked and voices fit their roles really well.

    I read the book last year and so decided on this medium rather than rereading, at least I can still work and listen! I'm really pleased that I did.

    would thoroughly recommend.
