Review: Captured by You by Amber Hart

In the passionate, gut-wrenching sequel to Amber Hart’s Until You Find Me, Raven and Jospin must fight for each other in a world where love is never safe—and power is deadly.

Raven, a college girl from Michigan, came to the jungles of Cameroon searching for closure. Falling for Jospin, a handsome, charismatic hunter with dark secrets of his own, was never part of the plan. But despite their differences, their attraction is addictive, as exhilarating and wild as the rain forest itself—and also as dangerous.

For the sake of both their lives, their heated affair must remain a secret. Raven wants justice for her conservationist father’s death; to help her, Jospin must turn his back on his own father and the only life he has ever known. Together they risk being hunted by a band of ruthless poachers, but they take the chance anyway, working to bring down their enemies between each stolen kiss.

But when one slip puts Raven’s life at stake, Jospin knows he must act. He has captured Raven’s heart—now can he set her free?

Kristine's Thoughts:

** I received an advanced readers copy of this book from Random House Flirt via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**

If you have not read Until You Find Me then you need to stop reading right now. Captured by You is the sequel and conclusion to that story. I remember the first book well and was anxious to find out how the story would play out.

Although the romantic aspect of the story is very much present in this book the suspense takes the wheel and drives the majority of the plot. The focus was on survival, pay back and rescuing each other. Both Ravin and Jospin found themselves in dangerous and unfamiliar territory that they had to survive and overcome in their efforts to return to each other. There are still plenty of steamy pages to be found but the story is definitely suspense driven.

I always find it hard to discuss my thoughts on sequels because I always fear that I will give the story away. I'll try to keep it brief and generic. Captured by You lived up to my expectations and I really liked the direction the story went. Just like the first book, it went back and forth between Ravin and Jospin's point of view.  It was very effective and for this story I feel that it was the only way to make it work. The story flowed nicely and I found myself finishing it quickly.

One thing I feel the need to mention is that there is more of a voice from Clovis in this book. I loved, loved, loved Clovis and think that he needs a story of his own. I for one would be first in line to read it. As much as I liked Jospin I think that Clovis stole the show.

In the end, I am very happy with the direction and outcome of this book. I enjoyed every minute of it and found it quite refreshing. Another job well done!
