Summary via Goodreads:
(Author note: This is NOT a dark romance.)
Delilah “Lily” Flynn is used to her drab existence. Lily’s been living it for twenty two years.
Her boring life is suddenly turned on its head when she’s rudely kidnapped from her bedroom.
Or so she thinks.
Nox Taylor is far too high up in his field to be assigned a babysitting job.
There’s nothing more he wants than to complete his mission so he can be rid of the smartass tomboy, Lily.
Day after day, Nox watches Lily and her strange ways. She’s unlike any woman he’s ever met.
Getting close to the girl is purely for her own protection…right?
Lily never imagined she’d make her first real friends in captivity.
What lengths would she go through to keep them?

OMG. OMG. THIS WAS
Amazing. Beyond amazing, in reality i want to become Belle Aurora’s BFF, and also Lily’s.
Song choice: “Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” cover by Ingrid Michealson, “My Love” by Sia, I had another but i cannot remember
First thoughts: What are you doing, just read this, seriously i honestly don’t think you could ever regret this decision. It was laughing out loud funny, it was adventure, and action, it was romantic without being “barf-y” kind, but also a little bit barf-y kind because we all secretly love it. The characters were all sorts of amazing, the plot was all sorts of fun, and so just just amazing.
Thoughts on plot: So I don’t read a whole lot of contemporary, only because I really do love my paranormal, fantasy and sci-fi, and to be perfectly honest i don’t read a whole lot/any really BDSM which seeing the cover AND the title of this book my immediate thought was contemporary-erotica-BDSM, HOW FUCKING WRONG WAS I?! Okay so before you even think that, no it isn’t. This isn’t really even a dark romance, this was funny as hell, entertaining and just so amazing. Okay so Lily is “kidnapped” don’t worry there is more going on than you originally think, so no this isn’t Stockholm syndrome of anything like that. This had action in the beginning and a bit near endish, so while most of it sort of stand-still ish as i call it, there was a lot going on, there were relationships that were beginning, and developing which I LOVED LOVED LOVED, not only between Nox (our main man) or Lily (the most amazing lady ever) this is also to me a really coming of age – in the non-cheesiest way possible – story. There is coming of age when you are teenager, but that isn’t really quite who we end up being, you know? There is another turning – a HUGE turning point in life that no one really makes a big deal about, and i really felt that was another HUGE part of this book. It was all sorts of amazing. I really won’t get over how much i loved this.
Lily: Yeah a goregous without really knowing it sort of girl, whatever, but she was amazing her personality and her humor amazing. She and i would have been bestest of friends if she was real… dammit why isn’t she? I connected with her on so many hundred different levels that it wasn’t even funny, I might be very partial to this book because of how well i connected with Lily. She really god i cannot believe i am about to admit this, but she is me in so many ways its not even funny. But i think that is that amazing thing about her, she is every woman but also very unique as well. Okay before i start blabbing on about my lady crush on this woman let me move on. She was courageous, brave, but also very much a girl. Hey i will admit we all cry once and a while. She had – i just can’t, she had the most amazing humor ever. And her thoughts are just so damn funny, and i have to think to myself, THANK GOD I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE! hahaha, sorry if you read the book you might understand that a bit better. Anyways. She really was amazing, She is hands down legit probably a new (and will always be) a favorite main lady for me.
Nox: he was a lot to take in, VERY ALPHA, but in the jackass sort of way. It is literally his way or the highway well not really its his way or his way XD I loved him, though he wasn’t very the traditional i am going to tell you sappy lovey things the things he does say or doesn’t say 😉 😉 shows more than any good one liner could do. He really was beyond sexy and i loved him. I do really wish we had a bit more back story for him, i wanted to know how he got into the profession that he was in, but *sigh* i will take what i can get.
The ending: Beautiful. you looking for HEA you won’t find a better one 😉 ❤
Belle Aurora you just won yourself a life-long follower. ❤
