This is a brilliant read!  I started it unsure what I was going to think.  Penny is kidnapped by the beautiful Carter and whisked away to a mansion on some unknown island.  She is very attracted to her but is obviously angry and suspicious.  She quickly grows to trust and love Carter but is still a prisoner.  Carter is a high powered business woman and Penny a waitress/student with seemingly nothing in common but they fall in love and forge a bond.  There is so much more to the story though and the twists and turns had me in a spin.  I did not put this book down until it was finished as I was so hooked on the story and never could have guessed what it was really all about.  It is certainly not at all what you think when you start reading it.
The steamy scenes were really well written and extremely hot. Their relationship is wonderful and I wanted it all to work out but I was never sure what was going to happen next.  I love this book and thoroughly recommend it .  I’ll have to go and read some more of Reven J Spencer’s books now as I am so impressed with her writing .

I  found this book to be one of those that you can just sit down and thoroughly enjoy. For a few hours pure fictional romance, nothing to heavy, just enough spice to keep the reader entertained and a light but interesting story line. Weaving this illusion is a credit to the author.
The plot is absorbing and one that kept me guessing right to the final revelation. Another plus to this novel is the way the author tells a complete tale. Nothing is omitted, we get an intimate and detailed account of both leading characters lives, dreams and hopes. Coupled with an ending that achieves an insight to their lives after the revelation and then takes us into what their future may hold.
A really satisfying novel, one that achieves what it sets out to do, charm and captivate the reader and distract from the mundane.
Can I just say that some of this was a little weird? I’m not sure whether to think that this was a type of parody or satire of billionaire romances. If it is, then I like it a lot more. The big thing for me is the whole abduction part of the story. The general idea is that someone with that much money can do whatever they want with no consequences. The whole idea of Stockholm Syndrome and how luxury and exotic conditions can cause it to kick in sooner. When you have no real option of resistance or escape, how long could you keep up a struggle against a captor that you were initially attracted to? But a more basic question for me is how could a love that started with such a power imbalance ever be equal? I’m not sure that question is resolved at the end to my satisfaction. It was definitely an interesting read, but there are issues here that aren’t fully explored or resolved.
