Publisher's Summary

Find the strongest man there. Give yourself to him in return for protection. It's the only way you'll ever survive. Convicted of a minor crime, Riana is sentenced to a prison planet - a dark primitive hold filled with convicts vying for power. Her only chance of survival is with Cain, a mysterious loner who has won his territory in the prison through intelligence and brute strength. Sex is all she has to offer, so she uses it. She's under no delusions here. No one is ever released, and no one ever escapes. Survival is all she can hope for - until Cain.
An earlier version of this book was published under the same title and a different penname. It has since been substantially revised and expanded.

This story was just okay. I thought we would see more of the world they lived in but not really. They didn't enact with the other prisoners as I would have thought. I know it was dangerous but being in a place like that for so long you would need to communicate more with others.
I wanted to know more about the characters and their background. So yeah it was okay

Find the strongest man & give yourself to him -!

Any additional comments?

I was so intrigued by the premise that, even though at the time (when the ebook first came out) I didn't think Sci Fi was my thing.
This is the book that changed my mind.
I loved it.
(And in fact, sci fi dark romance books are now my main reads)
I could talk about the bones of the book, but you have the blurb up there.
I'd love to dissect the unique mechanics of this couple's relationship, but I can't do that without spoilers.
Here's what I can tell you:
I WAS SO EXCITED to find this come out in audio!! And Kirsten Leigh is FABULOUS --- I was already familiar with her work (Preppy with Lance Greenfield anybody? *happy swooon* and Leigh has read Listed under this author's penname) and her voice talents shine beautifully with Hold too. It's funny; I prefer to read when I can, I just don't have the time anymore. But when I love the book, and the narrator is amazing, it can rival the experience of curling up and physically reading a book now - and Kirsten pulled that off with Hold. There is a line in this story where the heroine's voice is supposed to break in an emotional moment, and Kirsten did it *perfectly* --- I clapped. Seriously. I love great audiobooks, and this one was such a treat; I am beyond thrilled that I can listen to it whenever I want now --- and, it's worth noting, this book made it to my All Time Favorites list. The list of books that I'd want with me if I was stranded on a deserted, primitive island.
(A primitive island with electricity so that I can charge my kindle & phone of course or I'm gonna need everything in paperback...)
THAT'S how much I love this book.
