Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Review: Prisoner of Love by Cathy Skendrovich

Title: Prisoner of LovePrisoner of Love

Author: Cathy Skendrovich

Publisher: Entangled Select Suspense, Entangled Publishing

Release Date: October 19th, 2015

Rating: 3.5/5

Heading off into the California mountains, accountant Lucy Parker is carjacked by a handsome, attractive, prisoner, changing the weekend from a girls only event to one packed with action packed, mobsters, crooked lawmen, murder, explosions and so much more. When it turns out the carjacker is actually an undercover police officer, imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit, life is about to get more dramatic than Lucy has ever dreamt of!

This is one of those books that has great characters, a brilliant overall plot and is an ok read but somehow doesn’t quite live up to the high expectations I’d had as far as I’m concerned – probably my unrealistic expectations rather than the author’s fault. Stockholm syndrome has nothing on the instant attraction described in this story…. Lucy goes straight from a sobbing wreck to instant sexual fantasies! Really?!?! The pace is inconsistent and some of the events just happened away from the story and I’m not sure how. Having said all that, it will appeal to anyone who wants to escape into a quick read with suspense and romance added to the mix. I actually look forward to reading more by this author in future as I suspect her books will keep on improving!

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too for provided an ARC for me to read in exchange for this, my honest review.
