Description From Goodreads:
‘I wouldn’t do that if I were you.’
Stranded and searching for a phone, Flick inadvertently walks into danger, and finds herself living in a nightmare. But an unexpected reprieve comes in the form of a stranger, a looming silhouette more terrifying than the evil that captured her. From him she learns that danger has an alias, Rushe. He is abrupt, crude, domineering…and her only hope for survival.
With freedom a distant memory, Flick is reluctantly drawn into the criminal plot. As she descends further, her entanglement with Rushe becomes deeper. The adventure she started by accident threatens them; but Flick knows it’s not only her life she is battling for, it’s her heart as well.
Warning: Contains explicit language and imagery.
I received this copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This was the first book I’ve read by Scarlett Finn and I have to say I was impressed. Initially I was unsure about where the story was going, but it quickly picked up pace.
The story is about Flick, the protagonist, who’s inability to follow instructions lands her in a very dangerous situation. She is taken captive by a group of men who sell women into sex slavery. She finds herself under the watch of one man, Rushe, who despite being a self confessed ‘bad guy’, takes her under his wing and helps keep her safe.
The story is dark and very erotic, and at times quite suspenseful. It reminded me in some ways of the Captive in the Dark trilogy by CJ Roberts, another very dark read, which I enjoyed.
The writing in the novel was good and flowed well. The relationship that forms between Flick and Rushe was initially based around sex only, but develops into much more. Their developing relationship is what kept me hooked, wanting to know more.
All in all, a good read. I would be interested in reading a follow up to this story and hearing more about where Flick and Rushe end up.
