Crime Lord’s Captive (Crime Lord #1)

Crime Lord's Captive (Crime Lord, #1)

Crime Lord’s Captive by Mia Knight

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Wow- this one is sad. There are a couple of deaths in it that I kept hoping weren’t true, but sadly I was wrong. Just… so sad.
This book did a great job establishing characters, and getting the reader to feel something for them (intrigue, dislike, disgust, frustration, affection). You can understand the internal turmoil of the heroine as she struggles to reconcile that she has ended up back in Las Vegas under the thumb of the ex-boyfriend that she had escaped three years prior. It is also easy to see that said ex is trying to prove himself to her, to prove that he wants her to WANT to be there with him.
When all hell breaks loose it is time for these characters to rise to the challenge. Do they pass? Do they fail? Do they manage to make good decisions? What relationships, if any, survive the storm?
Overall a great read, and I am looking forward to the next book!

“Come to me, Lyla, and I’ll let your father live.”

Three years ago, Lyla Dalton fled from the glittering lights of Las Vegas and the ruthless man who rules the criminal underworld, Gavin Pyre. She created a new identity and has been living a quiet life, but that’s at an end. He’s found her and is bringing her back to where she belongs. 

As Lyla navigates through the dark secrets of her past, she’s forced to face a man who won’t accept no for an answer from the woman he still claims as his. 

Author’s Note: This is a dark romance novel with triggers, violence, and mature themes that may make some readers uncomfortable

Compulsive reader. Romantic suspense/contemporary romance/dark romance/NA romance addict. Particularly fond of mafia, forced/arranged marriage, secret baby, kidnapping, and dark alpha heroes. Just out here doing my part for humanity- these books won't read themselves.
