    One thought on “The Captive”

    1. 3.5 starsBest entry so far. The sex fairly burned though I did have a moment of doubt about it being questionable consent until I remembered it's fiction and I'm enjoying it and I have enough pyschobabble chucked at me that I'm going to let this slide by my radar mostly unremarked by my conscious brain. But there were still editing problems. These are short, they come out one a month, they're cheap but building up to a good amount as the series progresses, it would be nice to see some work on th [...]

    2. You are never too old for a "quickie" and this book proves it! Great for a lunchtime read, not so good for trying to concentrate on work afterwards (lol). Rumour has it, that the author may be considering ending this series, please don't, my lunchtimes won't be the same but I'm sure that my work would benefit from focusing rather than wandering back to the book! Great value at only 77p!

    3. I enjoyed this chapter in the story.We are two weeks on from the last chapter that ended with Cody and Jake addressing the issue of Cody’s insecurities associated with being a good sub for Jake and that neither is perfect, yet perfect for each other. *sigh* (Hey, go reread my profile, I told you I was a sappy romantic).This chapter’s events have Cody running into Tony Wallace, the blond sub from the last chapter that helped kick Cody’s insecurities into high gear in the dungeon, who shares [...]

    4. Main Characters:Cody - Police officer and Jake's subJake - Police officer and Cody's DomSynopsis:Jake told Cody a lie about a prior lover (more like a half truth or lie of omission) and when Cody finds out the truth, he loses his trust in Jake and their relationship. Cody tries to leave town and dodge seeing Jake again but Jake tracks him down to try to work out their problems. My Thoughts:I am enjoying this serial. Jake really screwed up by implying that his only connection to Tony was as his c [...]

    5. I love the Key Holder series by author Shannon West. These books should be read in order. But I didn’t and I found I wasn’t lost. The Captive has Cody and Jake finding their footing in their relationship.When Cody finds out Jake lied to him Cody runs. But Jake will not give up that easily. I will say I thought Cody’s running was a bit childish, when Jake finds him Cody learns he better not just run from his partner ever again.The powerful connection these two have just pops off the pages. [...]

    6. This is where the fun stops for me. This one should come with a warning. What happens in this part of the series is at the very minimum dub-con in my book. I did not like that. (view spoiler)[Cody is heartbroken and Jake things tracking his phone, jumping him, tying him up with a plug and a gag without speaking two sentences first is the perfect way to fix things. The scene made me very uncomfortable. (hide spoiler)]Oh, and the mixing up of the characters' names I mentioned in my review of the f [...]

    7. Is an omission still a lie? That's what this boils down to.Can you trust your Dominant if you find he's not been completely truthful with you? Will you safeword on your relationship? And what about your Dom? Will he accept your decision?The interplay between these characters is fascinating. There is no easy answer, much as with real life, it's something that has to be thought about, talked about, and ultimately decided on.Shannon West is doing so much with this series and I can't wait for book f [...]

    8. 3.5 stars - For a shorty this was really very good with lots of emotion. The Dom/Sub dynamic always intrigues me with how many different aspects affect the relationship. In this case it was a matter of trust, when the sub felt he couldn't trust his dom to tell him the truth. It all worded out in the end. Good story.

    9. The CaptiveI liked this book. I love how Shannon takes Jake and Cody through step by step in a dom and sub relationship and the mistakes that are bound to happen. Their love for each other grows stronger as their relationship progresses. I can not wait for the next book in this series. Erin

    10. Love these twoThere is something about Cody and Jake that makes me want to read them over and over. I love how hard Jake is fighting. Cody acts very irrationally and Jake has to keep reeling him in. I really can't wait to see how this ends. What else will they have to go through? I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment.

    11. These books are super short but the price is cheap.Book three see's the D/s relationship moved on and drama time! Liked this but there are some editing errors. Jake and Jake are mentioned in the same sentence, it reads as if he is touching himself instead of Cody It's confusing and I had to read it over to get the jist. Proof reading and Editing is a must.

    12. Cody and Jake's story continue in book 3. Cody finds out that Jake kept a crucial fact from him. Will he be able to deal with the betrayal? And how does Jake react to his sub running away?Shannon West is the only person who can break my heart and turn me on all in one series! LolCan't wait til October!

    13. Okay - I'm done with this series. This is not a romance. This is an abusive relationship disguised as BDSM. No self respecting Dom would act the way Wes does - especially in this chapter of their story.Nope - Done.
