no words....

This literally was one of the hardest books I've listened to, but not in a bad way at all. I mean it's just so raw, so emotional and just makes you shiver with what happens. It's one that really will tear your heart out, make you think and then again still shatter your beliefs in the world.

I really commend both the narrator and writer for taking on this story. I don't think many would have carried on with it, or gone into the details. But, in one way it also allows us to see how just awful and heartbreaking the world around us might be. This is one story that I can almost believe is 100% true.

What also made it stick was the character voice of the narrator, Lyric did an amazing job of emotion, hurt, pain, fear. Everything was just as you'd imagine, and put you right there in that room, and with Tori.

Excellent story and narration, though hard on the ears... it's something that will make you feel everything and take you on a journey of slight healing....

Will be watching out for more from these two a really good partnership.

Lovely

A story of woman doing what she must to survive a life of hell. Thank you for making this adventure so meaningful to me. You're voice made me feel as if the young woman was here in front of me telling me her story her self.
Great Job on your story telling. Is worth the price to me.

Fun to listen to.

If you could sum up Captive in three words, what would they be?

Appealing Sexually Captivating

What other book might you compare Captive to and why?

New in devour but loving it.

Which character – as performed by lyric – was your favorite?

Tori

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

If you are looking for something to get you into the erotic mood, this book is a great start for such exploration. There is a chapter that tugs at you in the sensual way that makes you remember being a woman freshly touched.

Any additional comments?

Along with the sexual enjoyment of this book the mystery of Tori's story unfolding is enjoyable and keeps your interested. I quite loved getting to listen to this first book in the series.

not a fan of the narrator

the narrator didn't really make it a story unless her idea of the character was to sound somber

Unique and well presented

Would you listen to Captive again? Why?

The author's story weaving skills made the story very easy to follow. The audible narration made the words animate and draw me in.

What other book might you compare Captive to and why?

Skye Warren's book "Trust in me" I found the mystery and suspense of a similar calibur. both have the ability to leave me craving more.

What does lyric bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

she is Tori. I easily forget at times lyric is the narrator and not the real life confession of Tori's life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

this is a great book. I couldn't put it down and the ending left me hanging on the edge of my chair hungry for the next in the Series.

Very Engaging

What made the experience of listening to Captive the most enjoyable?

The story draws you in and keeps you wanting to figure out what is going to happen to the people involved. Lyric has a wonderful voice. I might just listen to this more than once.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Captive?

I wouldn't list a single point or two. More of the over all journey. You are with Tori as she makes the, sometimes painful, path to grow. i love how to narrator seems to pick on up this and you can feel the strength of Tori build through out the book.

Which character – as performed by lyric – was your favorite?

Favorite character would have to be the main character, Tori. What was also very enjoyable was that Lyric gave each character their own tone and accent.This really helps someone like me to keep it straight on who is speaking. Something I would have trouble with other wise

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I am not one to normally have a external reaction to something I am reading. Is very internal for me. That being said I found many of characters being someone I could care about. I think this is partly do to the writing as well as to the narration.

Any additional comments?

A very enjoyable book. I am looking for to the next installment and hope the same narrator is involve. Would mess up my head space to get a new voice for these characters

Always wanted to hear more!

I loved how the story moved with dialogue and action and how the narrator moved with the story and brought out each character and scene. I've listened to other works performed by Lyric and her narration is a pleasure to listen to. I can't wait for more of this story and more of her voice. it was like watching a movie with a very sexy soundtrack

ComPLETELY different take on a Biker MC.

I did NOT see this one coming. Usually I melt FOR the Biker MC members but, uh, nooooo. What an offbeat concept Samantha Jacobey has come up with! Dark and twisted and Tori has one hard road ahead of her to untangle herself from the Dragons. Well written and consuming story.

First time listen to Lyric’s narration. She sounded too innocent for the severity of Tori's character. I’m not saying she did a poor job, just that I didn’t fit her voice well to the character.

👍🏻👍🏻 Worth two thumbs for the originality, at least!

Story of strength

this story is a story of a woman put in a hellish environment and asked to live and be happy. I think it's a great story and i really admire the characters and i wish to take the lessons i learned and put them in to my own light.

3.5 Stars...Very Intense Story Of A Young Girl

A very intense story of a girl, Tori, who from the time she was a little girl lived with an MC where she was abused, kept isolated and doesn’t know where she came from. Upon the deaths of 11 MC members Tori becomes involved with The FBI, particularly Eli...and the experiences of her life ..the horrors of her past and her ability to be strong despite her life was amazing.
The narrator did an incredible job and provided emotion and painted the story fully and completely. Not an easy story to hear.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review
