I loved the idea of this book because it was so original, and when I listened to the narration of Carmen Rose, I was hooked! Carmen Rose narrated beautifully. She has a lovely voice with such a nice English accent that I enjoyed the way she brought this book to life.
At the heart of it, this book illustrates Stockholm Syndrome with a woman who falls in love with her captor, and vise versa. But, that dark aspect makes this read intriguing and visceral. Captain Hendrix (a pirate) scoops up Indigo and her friend Eric from a raft at sea, as they escaped a yacht explosion with their lives. Yet life in captivity is a pretty scary thing, and there were times in which Indigo's erratic behaviors made her an unlikeable heroine. I chalked down her teetering from selfless to selfish as part of her fight-flight responses and adrenaline rush, as a captive. However, Indigo, overall, was a brave woman who pushed through her circumstances hoping for something better. Well, Captain Hendrix is ruthless and completely unlikable at the beginning, but along the way his humanity breaks through and with many twists and turns in the plot, and reappearances of impacting people in Indigo's life, well you have one exciting adventure.
Was this story believable?---Absolutely not, but it was enjoyable. There are a lot of questions that come up, like why did Indigo rent a yacht to sail across the pond from the U.S. to the U.K., and why does the narrator have an English accent when Indigo lived most of her life in the U.S…..well, those questions get answered somewhat. But, you have to just read this book for fun, and not for realism.
Oh, the love scenes progressed from simply lusty to steamy and emotional. There is dirty talk and graphic detail in the scenes. One aspect I thought was somewhat comical was how Hendrix referred to Indigo as "Innocensia (innocence)"---yet, this innocent girl really knew something about finding a man's g-spot….OMG…crazy! LOL
I can't wait to read the next book and find out more about Dimitri and Jess's dark romance, as well as find out what new developments spring forth with Hendrix and Indigo!

It's against the rules. You're not meant to fall for your captor.
Who knew a modern day pirate story would interest me? When I started the book one evening, I just expected to listen to a couple of chapters and then go to bed. Yeahhhhh. Didn't happen. In fact, it was well after midnight when I regrettably put up my iPod.
I might add that there were a few parts in this book that I couldn't stand. The heroines name for one. Indigo. Ugh. And her best friend, Eric, got on my nerves as well. I know they were captured, blah, blah, blah but he just didn't have a personality. At all. Lastly, the cover for this book is all wrong. She's described in the book as being blonde but a brunette is stuck on the cover. :/
Overall, I enjoyed the book. The characters are great, the action is superb, and the passion is HOT! The sex scenes will leave you panting and wanting more. Hendrix (the hero) is dominant and has a rough personality. I really, really liked him. I love to read about bad boys. He's definitely one of them. Who doesn't love a sexy pirate???
I never thought it possible to want someone so much, until him. I can't get enough of what he has to offer. He gives it, and I can't stop taking.
Carmen Rose was outstanding with the delivery of the story
