Big, badass and broody, he was a natural protector and the despite not being thrilled about his new 'babysitting' job, soon began to warm up to the snarky, sarcastic girl he'd be assigned to protect. I will admit though that there were a few things here and there that didn't fully add up to me if I thought about them too hard but nothing that brought away from my enjoyment of the story and, as you can see from the 5 star rating, nothing that affected my rating either.
Lily's point of view had me in stitches!! I swear, at least one thing on every page either made me smile, laugh out loud, or ungracefully spray tea all over my eReader. Don't judge. The overall pacing was excellent!! The romance was always there but there was no insta-love at all and the banter between Nox and Lily while they were at each other's throats was just downright awesome!
And this non-rushed progression this also made it so that by the time they actually started falling for each other, it and really felt believable while keeping a smile on my face. My eyes flutter open. I try to turn, but it seems this bed has seat belts.
Looking down, I see the seat belt is actually a muscular arm winches around my waist… I realize someone is breathing into my neck and wiggling closer to me. Deeper into my butt… "Is that what I think it is?
I'm out. Oh and the sexy-times?? They were scorching!!! Hot, steamy, emotional and left me fanning myself!
Heartbreaking, emotional, wonderful!! It gave me shivers, I totally squeed right out loud several times and even shed a tear or two.

I hate to say this but this book now belongs to my DNF shelf. It's hard to go on reading when you're not enjoying it at all. So I stopped. I couldn't connect with the characters and although Belle Aurora's writing has improved here, and there's also humor, it just doesn't work out for me. While I love the male lead Nox, the female mc Lily otherwise annoys the heck out of me. I just kind of don't like her attitude. She's so whiny and all. T I've read this book together with the pretty Allie.
To those who loved this book, I am so sorry. View all 33 comments. Sep 26, Catarina rated it really liked it Shelves: Lily is under a threat. And being the daughter of a father that is as financially healthy as he is protective, her father decides that the best for Lily is to go away, disappear until the threat goes away. So he simulates her kidnapping, except that her kidnapers are not forcefully taking her, they are transferring her to a safe house where she will stay under their protection until the danger no longer exists.
And then she meets the man that is responsible for her security: No 4,5 Captive Stars! First things first: Main characters were both pretty damn good. How weird is that?! Seconds things second: I wish Rock and Boo had their own book. And finally, what really convinced me with his book was the surprise factor.
It was not predictable. Nonetheless, it was a pretty good story, with romance and enough steam and not dark, you may breath in relieve. Go read it, now ; View all 51 comments. Nov 04, Katerina rated it it was amazing Shelves: He wouldn't drop me. He was my shield. He would protect me. Against almost anything. The hot-funny-lighthearted ones and the sucking-the-life-out-of-you ones yes Colleen Hoover I'm looking at you.
Willing Captive is both. I signed up for a fun,nothing-particularly-consuming read and instead I got an action-packed,unique,strong love story that clawed its way into my heart and won a place there. And I loved it. As in you-dont-leave-the-house-without-an-escort overprotective. Her monotonous routine gets interrupted when she is kidnapped by people who don't fit the kidnapper profile,because they are nice and gentle to her well except Nox.
She soon finds out that they are hired by her father to protect her against anonymous death threats,and until the person responsible is discovered she has to stay under the same roof with Nox and his team. What started as the worst thing that's ever happened to her turned out to be the best,because she finally makes friends and she finds the love of her life in the handsome face of extremely annoying and gruffy Nox.
Self-centered,full of bullshit,she acted before thinking and never thought of the concequences. But throughout the story she became a grown-up,she fought for what she wanted and she stood by Nox,no matter what.
Not ashamed of you,Lily. You're not for the backround. You deserve center stage. Yes yes he could be a huge asshole but he was also caring and protective over Lily. And man oh man his chemistry with her was off the charts. There were also great secondary characters! I loved Boo and Rock,they were so funny and adorable! So many lol and aww scenes,they were good friends and good people despite their jobs and lifestyles. Awesome book gang alert! The feelings The first half of Willing Captive was the oh-so-smexy,panties-melting,my-brain-doesn't-function,wipe-your-mouth-you're-drooling kind.
Tension,anger,fights that became seduction attempts,animal attraction and kiss-me-I'm-dying moments. Two lost souls that found a safe haven,someone to stitch their wounds,someone to turn existing into living. But it was worth it. Thank you Alexis and your perfect review that made me read this incredible story!

If it hadn't been for all of the awesome reviews my Goodreads friends had posted I probably never would have. That's the power of Goodreads. Every once in a while you unexpectedly discover a great book, and this is one of those books. Despite the disclaimer saying this is NOT a dark read 5 stars! Despite the disclaimer saying this is NOT a dark read, I was very hesitant about reading this book based on the title and cover.
Captive books usually aren't my thing. This book is in fact a story of finding oneself, and pretty darn funny as well. Lily is a sheltered rich girl but her life didn't start out that way. When Lily and her sister were preteens her dad's company experienced a boom in business leaving his filthy rich.
With the rise in business, so were the rise in threats to the family. More and more Lily found herself with a good book in her room than out with her friends. One night intruders break into her family mansion and abduct Lily and her sister. I won't say much more except that not everything is as it seems.
The mystery in this book was very well done. I always felt the undertone of suspense, even when the main characters were more relaxed in their surroundings. The author did a good job of maintaining the "what's going on? I loved both Lily and Nox so much! Normally I like one main character more than the other, but Belle Aurora did such a wonderful job developing her MC's. Lily was a great blend of cute and tough.
It took her getting kidnapped to realize she wasn't living her life, that she had been spending it locked away. It became her dream to break out of her situation and live free.
To me, a book is better than any movie. All I need is a good book, my imagination, and I am set free. He had his sweet moments but for the most part he didn't take anyone's shit. He was a bit of a jerk at the beginning of the book, but his devotion to Lily and her safety were what made him swoon worthy. I also think Nox's issues view spoiler [ near the end of the book was great. It made it more believable than him miraculously surviving. He struggled greatly to get back to Lily, a changed man, but a man still in love with her hide spoiler ].

I took it for what it was, a funny romance with a little bit of suspense. Don't go into this expecting a suspense book first with the romance being secondary, because I don't think that's what it is - and I think that's what I enjoy so much about it!
The h is awesome. She's a little quirky or even dorky, but I really enjoyed her. The only issue I had with the book and the reason for my dropping it a half star is that she cried too much. It was a really emotional time, so I get it! But I just thought it became a little too much for my liking. This is Lily and Nox's story. Lily has been taken captive by Nox and his team, and she is being held in a safe house.
She soon discovers that she is being held captive for her own safety and that there's is someone that wants her dead. Lily and Nox butt heads at first, but eventually they form a friendship that turns into more and they fall in love.
There are some suspenseful moments, some sexy times, and some sad moments Overall Pace of Story: I never skimmed and I thought it flowed well. There are some time jumps, but I think the author handles them well and addresses the important things that happen during those times I didn't feel like I was missing anything. In the grand scheme of things BUT I wouldn't consider this the typical "instalove" that I struggle with.
H rating: I liked him. I appreciated how he didn't hide how he felt about the h. I loved this h! Her inner dialogue cracks me up! I loved that!! I just wanted her to stop crying all the time Sadness level: Low, no tissues needed this time -- but I remember really crying the first time I read it. Not really -- they both know they want each other and give in. Heat level: They have some good tension, chemistry, and scenes -- but not so much it takes away from the story.
Descriptive sex: No Cheating: No Possible Triggers: I will keep this vague in hopes of not ruining it, but there is definitely a HEA ending. View all 14 comments. Oct 06, K rated it it was amazing Shelves: My emotions went through the ringer with this one, for I found myself swooning one minute, then bawling the next. The characters were fantastically written and you fall in love with them all!
Willing Captive was the story of a woman named Lily "I never realized how much I hate my life. She's 22 years old, and has a lived a life of extreme loneliness due to her father's protectiveness. Her only escape is through the hundreds of books the she occupies her time with, escaping into stories and living vicariously through them. She works for her fathers company but other than that spends the rest of her time at home.
She's pretty much a voluntary hermit. Lily's life is forever changed however, when she is blindfolded and kidnapped to live a life in captivity away from her family. Only problem is, she finds herself falling in love with one of her captors, Nox. And you changed me. All for the better. And I thank God for the day I met you. Nox is the guy in charge of the operation and he is broody, cold, stoic and looks like a falling angel, not to mention he has ice blue eyes that often show no emotion.
He has a job to do and Lily and her feisty attitude are not making it easy for him or his "employees". You can't see this type of hurt, though. Broken hearts don't mend easily. And you're not hurting me right now, baby.
But even if you were, it would hurt so sweet. I'm not going to go into details about this, for it would be very easy to reveal spoilers. It's the only way past it.
You have to face your pain, your guilt, and your sorrow. But when the strong hands of grief capture you, it is overwhelming, and completely devastating. I fear I'll never get past the stage of hell that I'm in..
It has sadness, grief, and anger but it's mostly a light-hearted romance. I would recommend this novel to everyone for it has a little something in it for everyone.
Overall, this was a fantastic read! They search and search, and some die trying to find 'em. And when you finally meet them, something inside of you says, "Oh, there you are. View all 35 comments. Sep 22, Alp rated it liked it Shelves: Let's just say there wasn't much going on in this book and there was no earth-shattering plot here.
A girl thought she was kidnapped but turned out she was protected by the professionals after her father found out that someone made multiple death threats against her, which she never knew any of these facts.
Then she fell in love with her protector. Later something bad happened bu 2. Later something bad happened but it was way too predictable , and… as you know, yeah, then… happy ending. The story started off well but dragged a bit in the middle. Most of interesting things happened during the last quarter of the book, but I felt like the story still kept dragging on toward the end.
What worked for me: The supporting characters. They were likeable and sometimes they absolutely stole the show. Perhaps they should get their own spin-off especially Rock and Boo. Some parts were very funny and they had me laughing out loud.
What didn't work for me: The plot. Two main characters. Oh, don't get me wrong, I didn't hate them. According to the story, she grew up with overprotective father, never once went out without a chaperone, had no friends, stayed home and did nothing but read her books in her bedroom most of the time, BUT she's such a badass and has a smart ass mouth. I don't get that.
It was unbelievable! Anyway, what upset me the most about her was that she yelled and ordered her parents to get out of her room. How could she treat her own parents like this? They loved her and were there for her when she was injured and felt so miserable. It was just way too juvenile to my taste. View all 34 comments. Jun 18, Jen rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Folks who like the Friend-Zoned Series. I swear this guy must've been conceived through back door action.
There's no way that much of an asshole is natural. The title and cover of this book scream "dark captive story" but the book itself is all kinds of sweet, funny and Belle Aurora. I love the quirky reads and this book delivered big time! Watching Lily come into her own was wonderful, and watching Nox fall in love w Standing face to face with a still pissed off Nox, I find myself getting pissed, too.
Watching Lily come into her own was wonderful, and watching Nox fall in love with a coming into her own Lily was even better. View all 30 comments. View all 4 comments. Dec 12, Srikari rated it it was ok Shelves: So this is how I arrived at my 2 Stars rating Well it is understandable why I didn't really like Nox that much, because he had hardly any chapters. Most of the book was in Lilly ' s point of view and may I just to say, boy is she sooo super annoying!
She got on my effing nerves. She was always so needy, it just pissed the crap out of me! But yeah I have got to 2 Stars I just dont know why, but this book had me eye rolling at everything. But yeah I have got to give it to her, she tried right? So I just went reading on and on, and when everyone was laughing, I had to go back to read the line again to look for the pun, or humor in it! And lemme just tell u how it was like Either she was crying or she was trying to be funny.
Who could be this smart! I mean who cares about escape strategies when ur abductor is well built and hot right?! So either they were safe or they acted like they weren't safe! I mean the story moved so slowly, I thought the scientists would even discover a new planet or a civilization before this story ended!
So yes, I am sorry , I know I cheated on eye roll 2, this wasn't and eye roll, cuz I fell asleep right?! I also didn't really get how they just fell in love! So here I present to you Insta-love One day they are all scowling and avoiding each other and the neXT they were just like "I, I love u like a love song baby, I , I love u like a love song baby There was absolutely zero chemistry.
And that kids is how I met one of your great great granddads. Yup I am dead too. Well at least I couldn't feel a thing. To me the conversations were like they were speaking to rocks! But this book had nothing. I didn't blush, didn't grin like an idiot and I didnt do my happy dance.
So for each eye roll I deducted a star! Well on the brighter side, this book got much much better in the end! It did have those beautiful elements that make me love belle auroras books! But they weren't enough to change my whole opinion for this books. Poor baby, me! Sep 16, Hulya Kara Yuksel rated it it was amazing. Another great story from Belle Aurora I really enjoyed this book.
This is not a dark romance story. Maybe book cover looks like that but it's light and fun read. You should give a chance. View all 10 comments. Feb 16, Mona rated it really liked it. There was laughter And then, I experienced the tears, heartache and anxiety Willing Captive had a lot going on, for a book that started out so simple.
My name is Delilah Flynn. Everyone, except my dad, calls me Lily. I spend most of my days right here, in my bedroom. Delilah aka Lily , lives a sheltered and overprotected life. Her days are spent reading, staying in her room, or working at her fathers company. Her father takes 'protective parent' to another level.
He only wishes to keep her safe But things changes drastically An unwilling captive, Lily fights, cries, rants and even attempts to escape She's been taken for her own protection, and must accept the circumstances she's been put in. Be sure to fuck thyself on the way out, you mean-assed son of a whore. But Lily is not so easily fooled or trusting.
She challenges her 'captor' at every opportunity. And tests his patience's to no end. Nox Taylor isn't eager to babysit the 'Flynn princess'. A job beneath his skills, but a job that must be done. Even if he gets the urge to be rid of the sarcastic , loud mouth Lily, every step of the way.
You're so fucking annoying that there is nothing more I want to do than to let you go right now Nox must finish the job and protect Lily at all costs. Even when pushed to the limit of his control, Nox must find the strength and patience to continue. Time goes by, and weeks are spent in a safe house. Lily begins to form friendships with those responsible for her safety But Lily has always held back and hidden away, so she decides to start fighting for what she wants I'll hold back from giving more away, and just say Don't open the spoiler, if you haven't read this book.
I did love this book, but felt it was a bit over dramatized at times. Too much crying and overly emotional scenes from Lily, got old by the end of the book. Then the short and pretty vague perspectives we get of Nox, to me, were not enough. YES more ranting What the fuck happened at the end?! I can understand his gone for 6 months, comes back with an injury, but this: Was a bit too much for me.
Not that I'm against these sorts of injuries in books, I have read about other disabled characters and really enjoyed their stories. But in my opinion His so macho and smug, then he comes back not sure of himself I just felt like it was such a fun book, then became some what serious and emotional If I enjoyed it, finished it with a smile on my face You won't hurt me. I know it. View all 26 comments. I'm so in love with Belle Aurora. This is the third book of hers that I love.
Lily is barely existing and stays in the comfort of her own home. That is until she meets her kidnapper, Nox. However, he isn't what she thinks or even I thought he is.
I swear this guy must've been conceived through backdoor action. Lily was sarcastic and funny. One problem I had with her was she did act much younger than her 22 years. Man did I swoon Ekkk!!! Man did I swoon over Nox. He was a bit mysterious to begin with but those are the type I love. The relationship that developed between the two of them was nicely done. You're not for the background I giggled, I swooned, my heart actually stopped. If your looking for a dark, disturbing and twisted book, I'm afraid this isn't the one.
This was funny, entertaining and heart fluttering x View all 27 comments. What a beautiful ride!!! I still have tears in my eyes In the begging was tears of laugh, near to the end become tears of desperation but at the end was pure tears of joy!!! I didn't expect that this book could be so fabulous!!! The first part of the book was funny and interesting but in the second part Aurora took it off in another level It left me with my heart racing fast and my mouth hanging open and i couldn't breath from anxiety and the pain of loss!!!
Oh, good Lord!!! This story was adora What a beautiful ride!!! This story was adorable and breathtaking at the same time But let me take the things from the beginning!!!! Lily was a 22 years old girl who was living an overprotective life She was so used to this, that didn't bother her very much. Her only friend was her sister She've been kidnapping from some mens and her life just like that was upside down Lily wasn't the usual girl who will be crying and fear to the death She was having a different sense of humor and she was absolutely determined to make her captor's life miserable And she was making a great effort with that!!!!
Nox felt sorry about accepting this job That girl droves him crazy!!! She is bubbling all around and she is determined to make his life difficult.
He doesn't know what to do with her She make fun of him, she is defying everything that ask her to do and most of all she doesn't believe him when he is saying her that he is not her captor but her protector After lot of effort and some nasty events, Lily started to trust Nox more than anyone else and she also began to develop some different feelings for him The thing that i liked very mush in this book was that they started to sleep together every single night without saying a single word about that fact And i also liked when they aloud to themselves to live the feelings that was builting inside them from the very first moment Their love was pure and big enough to change everything inside them And i can't forget that they were having so much fun together And the promise Nox made to her was the most wonderfull thing ever But near to the end, everything exploded and i couldn't stop the tears from running down my cheeks And i was in pain for Lily's pain Everything changed for once again But in the end came the salvation with a strange way My heart was breaking for Nox's shake I didn't like to see him in that way, but i Loved the way that Lily stood beside him!!!!
I also have to say that i really liked Boo and Rock They were amazing and very lovely people And her sister! She stood by Lily's side and tried to help her in every possible way!!!
But the most amazing for me was the bond between Lily and Nox If you guys, haven't read this story yet, you should read it!!! I totally recommend it to you!!!! I will miss those people Jul 12, Tink Magoo is bad at reviews rated it it was ok Shelves: This one was the twin of the one in friend zoned.
She was a dickhead for the majority of this book. I wanted to throw cement eggs at her through some of this. She pretty much ruined the whole thing. What exactly is sexy about constant whining and woe is me dramatics.
Can the person behind the threat come and shoot her already. At points I thought it would hav 1. At points I thought it would have been good is she just got killed and a new heroine came along that was old enough not to need a diaper and dummy anymore. I would have rated it 10 stars then! Wait, okay so I didn't think the whole thing was shit. I enjoyed parts of it. But it would always come back to Lilly saying something just plain stupid and I'd want to throw this bloody book into a pile of shit were it belonged.
Argh it was just so frustrating. The writing, the story, Nox - none of that was awful, but when you hate the main female lead it makes it hard to enjoy. Here are some examples - "The dickhead smirks and I want to knee him in the jingle bells.
And I can see his pee-pee. Why wouldn't he be showering naked and 2. Again with the fucking pee-pee.
Try using that in dirty talk - "Oh yeah baby let me suck that pee-pee. Errr no not your pee, ewww what are you doing. Oh god. Not the actual pee-pee. Pee-pee doesn't inspire me to think about a big hard dick, it makes me think of tiny willies weeing. Jeez, I don't know why I bothered carrying on.

A gorgeous novel! You start out laughing so damn hard and then crying your heart out! A beautiful and damn gorgeous read! I have read so many books that I have just started to review, rate and put them on my read list. This book has never left my mind. I remember reading this book because my family was asleep and I had stayed up in the dark and would not put it down until I finished this. The chemistry between the two characters is so believable I felt like I was watching a movie.
What I truly loved from this novel was the scene halfway to the ending.
When he comes back. Ms Aurora employed the element of realism you don't see much in books these days. I truly loved this book! It's dark, it's contemporary, it's romance and it's got some action. If you are a reader in love with these features then this is for you! View all 11 comments. When I first see the cover of this book, I immediately thought it would be a darker book, but in the blurb it says this wasn't a dark romance.
Well, okay, I will give a try and see what it's like. This book had me And more Lily is 22 years old and leads a very sheltered life because of an overprotective father. She lives her life through the books she reads. What she didn't know was that her dad had a very good reason to be overprotective. Her 5 Keep Me Captive Stars!! Her life, what little she had of it, was about to change drastically when she is kidnapped.
Be sure to fuck thyself on the way out, you mean-assed son of whore. Lily was hilarious and I loved her throughout the whole book. After she was taken, she finds herself in a "safe house" with Nox and others who are there to protect her, not harm her. There is a huge library in the house where she is. She doesn't trust Nox. But, the more time they spend together, the more Nox is intrigued by this sexy, sassy young woman.
It is his job to protect her from the threat. He can't afford to let his defenses down because if anything ever happened to her, he didn't think he could go on. Can't help who you fall in love with, princess. He and Lily were hilarious together. Though, towards the end, the story takes a more serious turn when Lily realizes that the threat is real and is coming for her.
Can they make it out alive and stay together once all the smoke clears? Thank you to my Secret Santa who gifted me this book. I liked it, but nothing really wowed me.
Since there are already so many reviews out there, I'll keep this short and just list the things I did and didn't like. Let's start with the positives: I absolutely loved her. You're not for the background. As you can see, the scale tips more towards the negative.
It didn't make much sense. A head scratcher for me. Nothing feels fully explained and hashed out. You were given a half assed reason and expected to just believe it TA DA, here's why.
That didn't work for me. Too many glossed over or omitted details that are needed to give some meat to the story. We don't really get much of it. What IS his job? What DOES his team do? Who IS he? How did he get into this line of work?
Why bring up his nasty scar if you're not going to say how he got it? No real character development. I didn't feel like I knew him at all. I just didn't feel it. Too much was "told" to me, without letting me "feel" anything. I had no vested interest in the two of them as a couple.
It all felt forced. It just didn't gel with me. This is my first Belle Aurora book and I'm not sure if we're a good fit. Though I'm told I really need to read Friend Zoned, so maybe it's just a matter of the book and not the author. View all 22 comments.
