Blurb/Synopsis:

What she saw was enough to make her a liability.
Aubry Clark was thrilled with the direction her life was headed.  AC Interiors, her design business, was taking off thanks to high profile clients like Liam Lockwood and Mike Chesterfield, giving her a chance. She could practically taste the success she was about to come into and the steamy cat and mouse games between her and perpetual bachelor, Mike, didn’t hurt either.
Until one day, just before sunrise, she went down to the docks to set up a photo shoot she’d dreamed up. She wanted to capture a colorful graffiti wall to use against the minimalist décor she had in mind for an upcoming project. But what she accidentally captured instead, was about to change her life forever.
The click of her camera shutter was the last untroubled sound she heard. When a muffled scream ripped through the air, Aubry turned around.
That was her first mistake.
When men dressed in black, forcefully shoved a scantily-clad girl in a shipping container and set their sights on her, Aubry ran.
Little did Aubry know, her luck was about to run out.

For Aubry Clark, being in the wrong place at the wrong time has taken a dangerous turn. Things had been look looking up with a flirty friendship with Mike Chesterfield and her design business taking off. But during a photo shoot at the docks she witnesses a girl being shoved in a shipping container and someone grabs her. It looks like Aubry’s luck has finally run out.

“She’s awake. My heart pounds against my ribs. The things I told her. My secrets – exposed. Fuck. She can’t talk. I push those thoughts from my head. She’s awake.”

I really thought this book had everything I love about dark reads. A captive heroine. Really sadistic bad guys. A hero that is going to save her. And that’s where this kind of sat outside my comfort zone. Overall, the story was ok but I had issues with both Aubry and Mike. Aubry never seemed to behave in an intelligent way. She knows her life is in danger yet she questions constantly why she can’t just go back to life as normal. And she realizes that Mike is sketchy YET she continues to lust after him. Meanwhile, Mike is selfish and doesn’t really put Aubry’s safety and well-being above his own questionable deeds coming to light. I just had a hard time really rooting for either one of these characters. I loved the concept of the story. I just didn’t love the flawed characters. I wanted them to both be more redeemable.

But that’s just the way I read the story. You may love this type of book. I probably am more the dark story with the happily ever after with the redeemable assassin type of girl. I don’t know. But if you want to, give it a try and see what you think.
