Follow the lives and loves of those who work at Captive Films:
Riley Johnson — Captive Films’ CEO and millionaire playboy is hot, privileged, and seriously single. He’s got it all—a brand new jet, exotic cars, a luxury penthouse, and a different aspiring actress (or two) in his bed every night. His life is perfect until the only girl he ever loved walks back into it, causing him to wonder if he truly has it all.
Keatyn Douglas — Hollywood’s sweetheart and owner of Captive Films leads a chaotic, glamorous life. But running a successful film studio, writing scripts, and her own acting career leave little time for the things she dreams of, like marrying the man she loves and having babies. When drama starts at work, she may decide to give it all up for life out of the fast lane.
Dawson Johnson — The dark and dreamy marketing consultant joins Captive to escape his past. For the last two years, his sole focus has been on caring for his adorable daughters after tragedy struck their lives. He comes to Captive looking for a fresh start and, if all goes well, he might find a lot more than that in Hollywood.
Knox Daniels — Considered the sexiest man alive by a certain magazine, the sentiment is echoed by the actor’s adoring fans. While romance abounds in the roles he plays, he’s convinced he’ll never find his own happily ever after—until he meets a woman who just might change that.
Shelby Benson — The beautiful cocktail waitress and wanna-be actress struggles to make ends meet. A chance encounter with Riley Johnson is her lucky break and the golden ticket to everything she’s ever dreamed of—fame, power, money, sex, and love.
Written soap-opera style with multiple points of view, you can expect lots of drama, sex, and tabloid-worthy events.

In the final book of the Keatyn Chronicles, we have some closure for all of our favorite characters. Riley Johnson, CEO at Captive Films is torn between the mother of his unborn child Shelby and his high school sweetheart Ariela. Who will he choose? Keatyn and Aiden have just been married and are starting a family but does their future hold more blockbuster hits or does she need a change? Knox has married and settled down but he’d like to explore different types of movie roles. Dawson Johnson has just begun dating Vanessa but unexpected news has the two jumping in with both feet. Shelby met Bam at the hotel and the two have seemed to hit it off. Will the cocktail waitress finally have found the man of her dreams?
“Keatyn rubs the top of my hand, and it makes me feel stronger. She can do that. Sometimes, Dallas gives me a hard time, but Keatyn is the opposite. I guess maybe she’s been through enough that she’s more understanding. Less demanding. More like she’d help guide me down the right path. And I wish she would. I wish someone would just decide for me. Someone who knows what my right path is. If I take the risk I want more than anything to take, it’s going to be difficult. It’s going to test me. And, even though Ariela is what I wished for, what I want, I’m afraid I’m not up for the challenge.”
I fell in love with each character from the Keatyn Chronicles all over again. Riley was much more appealing in this final book and not just acting on impulse. I feel like Keatyn and Dawson helped him to see that perhaps it was time for Riley to decide if he wanted to settle down. I just wanted Ariela to be strong. She may love Riley but I wanted her to also focus on what she needed in life in her career and shutting the door on her marriage. Shelby…OMG! That girl is a trip! She actually has a lot of street smarts and Bam is right up her alley. Those two combined with Bam’s family can definitely keep her on her toes! Dawson and Vanessa just made me tear up. Their reconnection just seemed like fate and I was thrilled how it all played out. And Keatyn…she just makes me smile. I love her relationship with Aiden. The sweetness of their family just bubbles over and makes me giddy. This was just a great wrap up to a wonderful series. When the book ended, I found myself smiling and in a great mood.
If you’ve been a Keatyn Chronicles junkie, this is definitely the right way to wrap up your addiction. I’ve been on this road since 2012 with all sorts of swerves and bumps in Keatyn’s life. I wouldn’t have missed one little thing.
