I never knew when he’d come to me. Only that he would.
I’d never even kissed a boy the night I met Stone. The night I saw him kill. The night he spared my life. That was only the beginning.
He turns up in my car again and again, dangerous and full of raw power. “Drive,” he tells me, and I have no choice. He’s a criminal with burning green eyes, invading my life and my dreams.
The police say he’s dangerously obsessed with me, but I’m the one who can’t stop thinking about him. Maybe it’s wrong to let him touch me. Maybe it’s wrong to touch him back. Maybe these twisted dates need to stop. Except he feels like the only real thing in my world of designer labels and mansions.
So I drive us under threat, until it’s hard to remember I don’t want to be there.
Until it’s too late to turn back.
HOSTAGE is a dangerous standalone romance by New York Times bestselling authors Skye Warren and Annika Martin. It’s set in the same world as PRISONER, but can read separately!
Ever since I read Prisoner back in 2014 I wanted another book in this world. I think in my review of that book I even put the following sentence: “There will be a sequel right?!” Yeah, you can say I’ve been waiting for a while. Not only did Prisoner introduce me to Skye Warren, who ended up being one of my favorite authors, along with Annika Martin but it also ended up being a favorite book of mine to this very day. So you can imagine my excitement when their new book Hostage was announced. I didn’t hesitate when I got the chance to read it for this blog tour. I practically devoured the story. I started reading it one evening and the next day I already finished it. Hostage was SO good!
I loved the two main characters, Brooke and Stone. When they first met I was wondering how it would all play out for them because of their age difference and how they lived in two complete different worlds. She was a rich high school kid and he a criminal not opposed to murdering the ones who have wronged him and the ones he cares for. I had my reservations at first but somehow it all worked out perfectly. It was honestly really good writing by both authors.
I would call Hostage a dark romance but it wasn’t the darkest I’ve read. And the romance certainly was intense. Brooke and Stone had some serious dangerous chemistry together. Some scenes were absolutely scorching hot! The story in general had a lot of thrilling moments as well. There were some moments where I didn’t think it would end happily, even. So the suspense was definitely on point.
Overall, Hostage by Annika Martin and Skye Warren was sexy, suspenseful and spellbinding. I would highly recommend it to fans of steamy romance, willfull heroines and alpha male heroes.
