“The dark sensuality and intense emotions present in Prisoner pull you in; it is a hard book to put down once you get started” ~ Under the Covers
Working in a prison teaching prisoners isn’t what Abigail wants to be doing, but she must complete the project assigned to her. She would much rather have her head stuck in a book and as far away from the reality of prison, especially when she can’t seem to stop obsessing about one of the prisoners. He fascinates her, disgusts her, arouses her and she wants nothing to do with him. However, he manages to escape from prison and she is now his prisoner.
This book wasn’t what I was expecting, I was thinking it would be the typical good girl meets bad boy and they all fall in love and it turns out that the bad boy ain’t all that bad beneath the surface. That isn’t what I got when I opened Prisoner. Instead this book takes you on a very dark and intense journey where two very damaged individuals fall in love. But the love isn’t anything as tame as “sweet” or “nice”, instead it is a turbulent mix of darkness, dominance, pain, need and passion with a dash of obsession thrown in.
I can’t tell him no. Some people have a relationship that’s sunshine and roses. Ours is darkness and vengeance.
The dark sensuality and intense emotions present in Prisoner pull you in; it is a hard book to put down once you get started. Greyson is a hero that I never thought I could like, most of his actions are violent and over bearing, and yet he has been drawn in such a way that I couldn’t help but almost emphasis with him. I also really liked Abigail, the heroine, she was just as interesting as Greyson, and the more I learnt about her the more I liked her. They were both broken people who didn’t quite belong in the world who were drawn together and didn’t mind being cut on each others jagged edges.
All I can do is go to him and put my hands on him. To speak to him in some twisted language of love that only we two speak, where we hurt each other just to soothe the wounds that follow.
A great read and I will definitely be looking for the next book in the series, Annika Martin and Skye Warren have written one of my favourite books of the year and I can’t wait to see more.

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?
