He seethes with raw power the first time I see him--pure menace and rippling muscles in shackles. He's dangerous. He's wild. He's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
So I hide behind my prim glasses and my book like I always do, because I have secrets too. Then he shows up in the prison writing class I have to teach, and he blows me away with his honesty. He tells me secrets in his stories, and it's getting harder to hide mine. I shiver when he gets too close, with only the cuffs and the bars and the guards holding him back. At night I can't stop thinking about him in his cell.
But that's the thing about an animal in a cage--you never know when he'll bite. He might use you to escape. He might even pull you into a forest and hold a hand over your mouth so you can't call for the cops. He might make you come so hard, you can't think.
And you might crave him more than your next breath.

Maybe I set my expectations too high...
I'm a big fan of Skye Warren.... But this combined work with Annika Martin wasn't a home for me.
Yes, the story was dark, but it didn't have any of the 'what the f*' moments I was hoping for. I also didn't really care for the characters.
I'll still read book #2 (Hostage), but I'll be going in with my fingers crossed.
Thank goodness Prisoner was free.
