What an amazing love story I’m not much into slow burn so the first half I was itching for some action between the two but it worked here I think I needed that slow connection to form to see the type of characters these two are and neither are what you believe at firstMaddie is lonely and insecure She has become a caregiver to her alcoholic mother because of her absent father She’s trapped in a life she can’t escape Ghost ie Gage is for hire for just about anything Trying to make a better way for his younger brother he too is trapped in his life The two connect on a jobThese two characters seem to change over time but in reality their true selves just come forward Maddie becomes the strong independent woman she is meant to be and Gage because the sweet and loving man he is supposed to beThe writing was absolutely beautiful It was entertaining and engaging I will definitely be reading of this author “After everything I’ve done all the shit I’ve done in my life I don’t know how I got lucky enough to have you with me I don’t know what I did to deserve you” Gage “You helped me save myself” Maddie

He’s the most dangerous man she’s ever met and she’s falling in love with him Madison Frost is desperate to escape her life Daughter of a prominent businessman she has everything a girl could ask for Except for a family who’s present in her life and anyone to talk to outside the four walls of the prison she calls h. Captive is a refreshingly different and entirely welcome spin on the captorcaptive romanceMadison Frost has been kidnapped and taken to an isolated cabin by a man known only as Ghost She's a student at Northwestern University He's a professional criminal hired to do the dirty work But what was supposed to be a uick job over in twenty four hours turns into much With a wealthy workaholic father and an alcoholic mother Madison has no real family no friends no confidence and little in the way of life's experience Ghost has never kidnapped a girl before Criminals men as hard and desperate as he is sure These two seemingly dissimilar people find they have a lot in common than they think And a lot time to get to know each other than originally plannedI don’t read captorcaptive contemporaries And I mostly don't read new adult Which this is Let’s face it most of these abductors in these captorcaptive CRs aren't heroes They’re usually lowlife abusive misogynistic rapists But the hero here is a good guy doing a dirty job The heroine is not a dumb chick susceptible to Stockholm syndromeThere’s no insta love The romance builds over the days Madison is held captive There’s a gradual awakening as Ghost realises that there’s to Madison than a spoilt rich princess And Madison realises that Ghost is not the ruthless crim she first imagined The believable dialogue the realism the sensual love scenes the well rounded and really likable main characters all come together for a fantastic read Told in first person from both Ghost and Madison’s points of view I especially enjoyed being inside Ghost’s headThere were a few minor issues some uestions left unanswered Also the hero is only 24 and had been doing this for eight years since he was 16 He seemed older in both years and experience But these uibbles were minor compared to the overall enjoyment I got from this oneThis is not a long read There are no superfluous or repetitive details And yet nothing felt left out With an economy of words Brighton Walsh tells a convincing story and delivers a believable romance that felt neither like a pathetic case of Stockholm syndrome nor an excuse for a contrived series of sex scenes Recommended for adult as well as new adult readers who like captorcaptive romances but without the offensive treatment usually doled out to the female captive Steam 35 ARC courtesy of St Martin's Griffin via NetGalley

Captive Captive #1Ome Madison dreams of one day leaving her life behind She never thought being kidnapped is how it would happenNow she’s being held captive by a man who’s as frightening as he is sinfully gorgeous Enormous muscular and filled with secrets the man they call Ghost is an enigmatic mercenary and Madison is trapped with him. 4 45 starsWhen it comes to Brighton Walsh I have no hesitation A book about a captive falling in love with her captor GIVE IT TO ME Normally I would be nervous and possibly very uncomfortable reading about that type of plot line as a romance but I trust this author I knew she would not only make it work but make it sexy as hell I don't have to tell you if that's the case with Captive rightTold in dual perspective the book is about Madison Frost a college student who lives at home to take care of her alcoholic mother because her absent business obsessed father couldn't be bothered and Ghost a sort of kidnapper for hire who makes money by turning the tables on the crooked haves of the world Kidnapping a girl though That's a first After spending the first few days together locked in a cabin Madison is not only making him reevaluate his choices but bringing out a gentleness he normally keeps locked tight Madison is not at all the spoiled rich girl he expected She's miserable and as much a captive at home as she is with him Ghost helps Madison realize she needs to save herself but who will save them when the danger increases and truths start coming to lightI completely understand if you're worried about a captivecaptor relationship That imbalance of power can be problematic and sueamish Ghost clearly holds all of the cards in this situation not only is he much physically stronger but he has answers too that he doesn't reveal until later But what helps is that we are given his point of view in addition to Madison's and though he is the first one to develop feelings he never takes advantage of her It's not until we're about a third into the book that Madison is even attracted to Ghost but in the meantime a door to friendship has been opened I think this is a love story that has to be well developed to work in any capacity I have to believe that Madison is not falling in love with Ghost because of the situation And I have to believe that despite Ghost kidnapping her he is a good man underneath Both of those ring true I completely bought into the deeper connection developing between them Plus the romance doesn't even heat up until Madison's knows about what's going on and what Ghost's true motivations are The stakes have changed drastically by the time they first kiss and most importantly it's 100% consensual Bottom line I didn't feel like they rushed into a romance at all nor was I ever uncomfortable Madison and Ghost both experience a significant amount of growth through this ordeal It's one reason why their romance works so well Madison has always known that the life she's been living hasn't been her own but for the first time she's actually resolved to do something about it She's tougher than anyone has ever giving her credit for until Ghost He's never had an easy home life either so he's done what he has to do to survive and raise his younger brother While Madison's chapters always kept me engaged I just loved being in Ghost's head I wanted to know his story and I liked seeing his walls being broken down He may be kinda scary at first and trust me he's a complete badass but he has these moments where he's gentle and caring too Watching him and Madison fall in love really had me swooning I was all for it With the kidnapping there's going on beyond the romance I have to admit that I didn't see the main twist coming; it completely shocked me in a good way I like the direction the plot took giving Ghost a chance to become a protector rather than a captor as well My only wish is that the reuisite separation hadn't been so drawn out I don't know if this book will be for everyone I want to say yes because I obviously loved it and found it super sexy and romantic and I want everyone to read Brighton's books I hope romance and New Adult lovers will give it a try I think you'll be hard pressed not to fall for Ghost and want the best for Madison Thanks to Netgallely and the publisher for approving my reuest in exchange for an honest reviewThis review can also be found at Love at First Page
