The story continues, and it is darker and hotter than ever
Captive is book two in Darcy Rose's Vow of Revenge trilogy. You can see my review of Stolen, book one at https://www.theupstairslibrary.com/book-reviews/stolen-by-darcy-rose. Captive, in a way, puts Stolen to shame - it is darker, it has more steam, it is definitely not for the faint of heart. It certainly takes things to a new level, which is just what a sequel should do...
We are still following Jessa, who was taken captive by three brothers, Declan, Wes and Trey. They stole her as an act of revenge against her father, who destroyed their family. At first, their sole thought is to use her and hurt her father in the process. They don't count on the fact that her father doesn't really care. In fact, her life is now forfeit, just like theirs. They have put her at risk with their gamble - it didn't pay off like they expected it to. And as they grow closer to Jessa, and as things heat up between the four of them, there is still a lot of conflicting feelings. What should they do with her now that her father doesn't want her back? Are they starting to fall for her? Is she starting to fall for them? Where can any of this lead but disaster?
I liked book two in this trilogy. Things are definitely amped up - both inside and outside of the bedroom. We see more of the characters' feelings and see more of their inner turmoil. We get to know the broodiest of the brothers, Declan, a bit better, and we see a more human side to him, and to all of the brothers. Once again, I will remark on how this is a dark reverse harem romance. It's not for everyone. But I certainly liked it and can't wait to read the third and final instalment in the story. Thank you to the author and to CandiKanePR for the ARC in exchange for the honest review.
