 This is my third book by Belle Aurora I had high expectations as I really loved the previous two but I feel a little let down as Willing Captive left me feeling a bit meh, it never sparked with me like her other books did. ~ Under the Covers

Lily Flynn leads a sheltered life, her father protecting her from everything and keeping her close. Even going as far as getting her kidnapped to keep her safe. But it may not be her body that is in danger as Lily starts falling for her gruff and arrogant kidnapper Nox, it may be her heart.

From looking at the title of this book and the cover it may give the impression of being one of those dark erotic romances, where a sheltered young girl is used in cruel and kinky ways. But it isn’t. This is very much a fun and fairly light hearted romance, where a sheltered young woman is taken captive…then hijinxs sexy and otherwise ensue. As this is my third book by Belle Aurora I had high expectations as I really loved the previous two but I feel a little let down as Willing Captive left me feeling a bit meh, it never sparked with me like her other books did.

I am having trouble though putting my finger on what exactly it was about Willing Captive that left me feeling slightly let down. It wasn’t Lily, our heroine, she lent a lot of humour to the book and although I may not have connected completely with her, I still liked her. And Nox, our hunky hero, was the same again he may not be the most memorable but I was certainly drooling over him whilst I was reading.

But, although I may not have connected with this book, it was fun and readable perfect if you are looking for something light and romantic. Although I will definitely still be keeping a look out for the next book released by Belle Aurora, I just hope it captures my imagination better than this one did.

About Belle Aurora

Belle Aurora is twenty six years old and was born in the land down under.
At an early age she fell in love with reading. Boredom one summer had her scouring the bookshelves at home. She stumbled across Sandra Brown’s Breath of Scandal and fell in love with romance.
Having been brought up in a loud and boisterous family of Croatian descent, she developed a natural love for dramatics and humor. Only some years ago had she discovered a new love.
Humorous romance novels.
Kristen Ashley and R.L. Mathewson had opened a brand new world where she could lose herself yet feel safe and at home in their stories. Belle has been known to become a screeching banshee while anxiously awaiting their newest titles.
Belle never thought she would write. It had never interested her until recently. Friend-Zoned began to form and in February this year Belle typed the words Chapter One. And she fell in love.
With words.
With writing.
With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored.
Friend-Zoned is the first in the Friend-Zoned series. Keep an eye out for this cheeky author.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?

Your review was on target! I did not get what I expected from the book’s cover and the synopsis.
The story was OK but not good enough for me to want to read anything else from this author.
