Captive by Samantha Jacobey

Captive (New Life, #1)Captive by Samantha Jacobey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG the blurb underestimates this book! Its called CAPTIVE and I was certainly the victim of this book!

I had an accident last Thursday which has laid me up, so I've done nothing but read and play games on my PC. I couldn't do anything except read this series.

This is the first book in the series. Let me tell you, its intense.

Tori is the girl. The life she has lead was unbelievable, but very impressionable. Left her with more than physical scars.

I'm not going to spoil this story. I'm just going to tell you what my reactions were to it.

I was crying for Tori. I could she how her 'knuckling' down and just 'getting the job done' was all the choice she had really. One option. I defy anyone to say otherwise!

One minute when the men were being nice to her and bathing her I was, aww, then ANGRY at myself for even giving them any sentiment at all!

What this story has now done, is lead me onto book 2, and I flipping can't wait!

Captive - A New Life Series
To what lengths would you go to break away from a life filled with pain and suffering?
Tori Farrell has lived a dangerous life. When you grow up with a Motorcycle Gang of Mercenaries and Drug Lords like the Dragons, a normal life is more like a fairytale. For years, she accepted her dark reality, a world consisting of drugs, sex, violence and murder. In the end, she learned the most valuable lesson: survival.
After years of being ruled by the Dragons, Tori uses her skills of seduction and assassination to free herself from the grasp of the people who vowed they would never let her go. Taken in by the FBI, she fears not everything is what it seems, and soon finds herself lost in a web of lies and deceit. She thought getting away from the Dragons would put her on a path to a new and better life, but now she must face the cold hard truth”� there is always a price to be paid.
˃˃˃ Excerpt
"Quietly, he explained to her that he was going to arrange for another group to kill the Dragons and send her to live with someone who would take care of her. Not understanding, she asked why she would have to go with someone else. If the Dragons were dead, why couldn't she just go with him? He refused to explain, and simply said, "You are going to have a different life, baby girl. A life I cannot give you. You must be strong and willing to do whatever it takes to make this happen. Promise me you will do this...."
˃˃˃ Book 1 of 7 in A New Life Series
This is the first in a series that chronicles the life of a young woman who is raised by a group of men who work as freelance mercenaries in the dark world of drug trafficking and murder for hire. They acquired the young woman at a very young age, as she has no memory of life before them. The book opens as she has broken free and moves through a series of current events and flashbacks that explain the beginning of her story. It is very dark with an unfinished feel, because in the end, the past is not the real story - the real story is what happens from here.
This book is intended for readers 18+ and contains scenes that may cause distress to some readers: Domestic Abuse, Kidnapping, Rape and Substance Abuse are described in detail.
