Summary

"Deep, dark, and sensual." (USA Today best-selling author Alta Hensley)

I was hired to apprehend a monster - a dom who'd been sentenced to life for killing his submissive. I've seen what he's capable of, and the images will haunt me forever. I swore I'd stop at nothing to put him behind bars.

But then our plane back to the States crashes. We are the only two survivors. And the monster will make me wish I'd died along with the rest of them....

Please note: This is a dark romance that includes kinky, sexual content and dubious consent.

Gateway book

The narrator was a good fit for the H, but very difficult for me with female voices. I do not agree with the classification of dark romance. The H is certainly into BDSM and a self confessed Don. But those things don’t mean “dark” at least to me. I find it more of a gateway book into that genre. So, more of a traditional stranded on an island but just so happens H is into alt stuff. 🎧 AudiobookObsession

Enjoyed it

Island Captive was a hot steamy read that will have you hooked from beginning to end. Labeled as a dark read it wasn't all that dark,yet this enemies to lovers story had elements of a D/s relationship and some BDMS. The plot was not too complicated as we see the federal marshal and the criminal she went to apprehend both stranded on a deserted island and their journey from captor/captive to lovers. You will like the main characters and be rooting for them to make it. There were a couple parts that were a but unrealistic but it worked well with the story.
I listened to the audible version of this novel which was narrated by DC Cole. I enjoyed listening to his voice. He brought the male character to life but it took me a little while to get the female characters. However I was soon hooked and enjoying the story. This was a good read and I would recommend it to those looking for a fairly light dark read.

Enemies to lovers

A good enemies to lovers story well told by DC Cole. Adrian is a strong, determined character with Nadine a woman of heart and morality. Their pairing, though initially through necessity, becomes so much more.

devastatingly emotional story

this is a brilliantly written story which takes you through a whole range of emotions along with the characters. I Love Nadine and Adrian and really enjoyed how the author built the characters and plot line.
Very sadistic and gritty but also protecting and caring! an intruiging read which is rich in description and colourful depths.

Stranded Domination

Jane Henry's Island Captive is a dark and highly sex charged story of Nadine, a smart and strong US Marshall who apprehends the convicted criminal Adrian for the murder of his *almost" fiance and submissive.

It's not Nadine's job to find him guilty or innocent of the crime he has been accused of, but she falls into the trap of jumping to conclusions based on the court finding him guilty. After Nadine ruff's Adrian up a bit during his re-capture, she gets a taste of her own medicine when their plane crashes on a deserted island.

Adrian introduces Nadine into the d/s while stranded while they peel back the layers on their pasts and how they got to where they are now in life. The attraction between the two on the island is highly charged after Nadine begins to understand Adrian's decisions and saves her life a couple of times also.....

While in today's world recovery wouldn't normally take so long to find the wreckage, and there is an HEA, but it was fun to make believe some of the events actually took place and if Adrian has a body anything like the cover of this story - I don't think I'd mind being stranded with him either.

Hot and steamy

I really enjoyed listening to this one. I loved the fuel POV and the narrators for those roles. The storyline I also liked I felt like I had a good mix of the BDSM plus love story and head great character development. I would say that I also really enjoyed the ending being that it wasn't quite your typical ending but was definitely a great finish. One thing I would say is if you're not a fan of the dam sub relationship this probably isn't a book for you because their relationship is more 24/7 opposed to just a sexual one.

Surviving captivity!

I definitely enjoyed this dark romance. My opinion is not to judge a book by its cover in other words unless you have heard both sides of the story.
This is an amazing story of two people whom think they know about each other but learned to work together to survive.
The narrator does an incredible job at telling the story. I think he is a great narrator and does an excellent job of distinguishing between the characters.
This is a must read. I recommend this book.

Loved it!

This was a fantastic Dark Read! Trapped alone on an island with someone you despise... who also has full control over you. The emotional back and forth of this one was tantalizing! The internal struggle to submit when you feel you should do anything but. I loved this story.

Narration was fantastic. DC Cole was the perfect voice to these characters. Great job!

Stranded with Adrian!

If my plane crashed and I had to be on an island with only one other person, would I want it to be the man I had just arrested? Nadine had taken Adrian into custody and under unfortunate circumstances, these two are the only survivors of the plane crash. Now, no longer the one in control, Nadine is looking to Adrian for her own survival, and finds out more about than the man than she bargains for. Jane Henry has outdone herself with this book. It's full of suspense and that strong, alpha male protectiveness. Adrian is a man not to be reckoned with. He is strong, handsome and a survivor. Nadine is a strong willed, but knows she has met her match with Adrian. His dominance is looking for her submission, and Henry gives you enough of a taste of the lifestyle to keep you wanting to hear more. I love this about her books, she gives her hero, Adrian just enough of that flavor to make you fall in love with him, knowing you will be cherished and taken care of. With conditions as they are, this couple turns their situation around and learns there are things more important than the that of the lives they had. It's a great story, one not to be missed!

This book needs a good narrator and the choice of DC Cole could not have been better. The dual point of view flows easily with his ability to switch from Adrian to Nadine. His sexy, rasp held that thread of dominance when voicing Adrian, giving him that edge of control. Loved his performance.

Held me captive!

Jane Henry's Island Captive was a tiny bit dark and a lot of sexy! Nadine is a US Marshall who's job it is to apprehend Adrian for the crime of murder - killing his submissive back in the states. He has fled to an island to escape captivity. When their plane crashes on a deserted island and everyone but the two of them are killed it is Nadine's turn to become a captive.

Adrian the sexy Dom decides to turn the tables on Nadine and make her his unwilling submissive and show her what it is like to be the one in charge. Adrian is determined to use her and "bring her to heel" without emotions. Just sex! Nadine is determined to resist him and wait for her chance to escape him and the island. Neither one of them however counts on their mutual attraction growing into something way more than sexual...As the two of them fight for survival on this island they realize their hearts are becoming captive to each other.

Is Adrian guilty of the crimes he's charged with. Will Nadine find a way to escape him and the island and bring him to justice? Will they even survive their time on the island? All is not as it seems and yet questions and lives hang in the balance.

D.C. Cole does an excellent job at narrating both Nadine and Adrian's voice - especially Adrian's. He really captures the emotions of both of the characters and draws you into the story.

I wish there was a follow up to this book. Who knows if we ask nice enough maybe Jane Henry will give us a sequel...

Intriguing

The book was excellent. It was back and forth with every emotion till the very end. I wish there was the possibility of the male and female narrators as I think it may have had a more feminine touch but this narrator did good. The question comes down to this: was it a case of Stockholm syndrome or love? I think it was love, but that is my opinion. You will have to listen to decide for yourself.

I will be returning this one

I've always thought I enjoyed BDSM novels, but this one is different in some not so good ways.
Be forewarned-
There aren't enough redeeming or even appealing qualities shared initially about the Dom to make the power he wields over the Sub even remotely palateable. It's not a sexy power play- just criminal abuse. The Sub goes from being a stereotypical "girl power" character into a frustrating, cringe worthy little girl out of her depth. This is the first THREE HOURS of the book- with little to no character growth!!

If that's your kink, leap right on it!! But if you also feel like punching out the main characters in this book by the end of those 3 hours?? Go ahead and return this book and check out "Bratvas Baby" by this author. Everything's a more fleshed out and well paced in her latest novels.

Sexy narration and great read

I would say that this is a semi dark story and oh what a story. I was captivated from the beginning. Nadine and Adrian seem to be on opposite sides of the law. He is her prisoner when their plane crashes and they are the only survivors. She is now his prisoner. He is a dom and although she is a strong female, she is a submissive. Truths come out and it changes things. If I am ever stuck on an island I hope Adrian is with me. He is dominant but also caring, compassionate, and loving. Their chemistry is off the charts explosive.

D.C. Cole is an excellent narrator. He makes the hot scenes even hotter. He also does an excellent job with male and female voices. I look forward to hearing him narrate more books.

I received this Audible book from #audiobookobsession in exchange for a review. I loved this book and highly recommend it. Jane Henry outdid herself.

Good

AMAZING narrattion by D.C. Cole, he did a great performance of both Adrian and Nadine.

As for the story, it was quite enjoyable, I love how the events occurred, and love how well written it is, the descriptions of the island are really good, so it's not hard imagining everything.

I was really hoping for Adrian not to be the monster Nadine and everyone thought him to be, and I was not disappointed.

This was my first book by this author and was able to enjoyed it, that I will be checking her other books too.

Wow

So I want to start off by saying it is definitely a dark romance. It is not as dark as some people might be used to but, for those of you who aren't used to dark romances, be sure you are ok with questionable consent. Anyway! This book is great from beginning to end! There is never a dull moment considering it is just two people for most of the book! Jane Henry really put a lot of thought and effort into what would really be important to capture the readers interest. The inner monologues in this book are a must and she really out did herself to let these characters personalities come to life. Also another great narration by DC Cole! Do yourself a favor and go ahead and push that purchase button, you won't regret it.

Loved this dark romance!

Great story that had me hooked from the beginning. I loved Adrian and Nadine and couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. Super hard to put this one down and I didn’t want it to end. Fantastic narrator, he really brought the characters and story to life. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

holy hotness!!

Island Captive is not a book I would have usually chosen, but I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone. Holy Moly I am so glad I did. At first I found myself hating Adrian and the way he was treating Nadine. But I totally fell for him!!! This story was sexy as hell. I didn't want it to end. DC Cole did great with narration and making the story really come to life. if you like a dark romance, give this one a try!!
