After the agony and turmoil of Captive (Book 1) and Bound (Book 2), Tori finally gets a chance to fall in love in Entwined, the 3rd book of the New Life Series by Samantha Jacobey. Mr. Hottie, Michael is back and determined to know what happened to his beloved brother Henry. He remembers a promise that he made him long ago and was determined to fulfill it. Tori, on the other hand, after she touched rock bottom and made it out in Book 2, stumbles in fear upon a face from her past and flees her new life in California. She is on the run but Michael has no problem catching up to her to find the answers he needs and fulfill the promise that he made to the person that is most important to both Tori and him, Henry. The dynamics between these two characters is mind blowing. The author is able to walk us through their relationship with caution and delicacy. The result is magical as Tori and Michael embark into a relationship too good to resist. As the new romance flourishes, so does the new conflict that involves them. This series is definitely worth your time and money! I cannot wait for Book 4 which will come out mid 2014!
After finishing Captive (Book 1) I was determined to know how Tori's story unfolded. In Bound (Book 2) you struggle with this character and her journey to self discovery. I gave it a Cuff review because this girl's life is anything but daisies. As Tori continues to swing with the motions of her new life in California she struggles with alcoholism, old relationships and her uncertain future. In the half-way house that she is court ordered to live, she meets people that will influence her good side and others that will bring her right back to where she came from. The authors is able to bring her old life through flashbacks making us understand Tori's life with the Dragons in more detail. Slowly but surely, she flourishes and tries her best to live a wholesome life full of possibility. I ache for this girl! Of course Ms. Jacobey gives me the cliffhanger that I need to dive in Book 3: Entwined, which I will start reading TONIGHT! I will blog soon...
Captive is the riveting story of Tori, a young, troubled woman with an unthinkable past. This is one of these books that you have no idea what is going on at the beginning and all pieces start falling in place as you hungrily fly through the pages. Tori was found in a house full of dead men that belong to a gang of mercenaries named: The Dragons. She was the only one ALIVE! Oh yeah! She is like a young female version of Rambo with a brain. As the book goes on, the author gives you pieces of her amazing and frightening story. She captivates the reader and you cannot get enough. The Mr. Hottie of our story is Special Agent Eli Founder, one of the agents that was with her and put upon himself the goal of helping her with her recovery while trying to solve his partner's murder. I loved the fact that neither one of these characters are picture perfect. Eli is shorter than Tori and she not only has Amazon height, she also has scars that reveal the struggles and abuse that she had to endure. How do you know you are reading an excellent book? When you fall in love with characters that are imperfect and yet you find them beautiful. Captive will captivate you as soon as you start and Tori's story will enchant you until the very last page.... do not wait! Download it now!
