The Venus Trap by Louise Voss

The Venus TrapThe Venus Trap by Louise Voss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars



WOW did this book grab me by the short and curlies right away or what!

We have Jo who wakes up, feeling sick and vomiting. Fever, feeling really out of it, and discovering she's chained to her bed post! What in the hell.

She remembers now that the father of her child has taken him away on holiday and she's got some 'me' time for herself. She also recalls that she went out last night. Is she drunk? did she have sex with someone? who in the hell would she have this sort of sex with, chained to the bed, why was she feeling so sick?

Then she realizes she's not alone, in comes this beefy guy, not good looking going by the description of him either!

He is being kind to her, asking if she wants to have a nurofen? Alka seltzer?

He starts to board the windows up with wood slates. Clears out the bathroom of any sharp objects. What in the hell is going on?

That's the opening, and it only gets better and better as you read on.


I would highly recommend this book, well, I enjoyed it, so I hope you do too.

I would like to thank Amazon Publishing via Net Galley for my copy to read and review

Jo Atkins’ sixteenth year was disastrous: she lost her dad, was assaulted by a stranger, and then had her heart broken. For the last twenty-five years, she’s believed that nothing could ever be as bad again.

She was wrong.

Now, still smarting from her recent divorce, pretty, self-effacing Jo finally gathers the courage to enter the dating scene. She meets Claudio, whom she vaguely remembers from her youth, but after a few dates decides he’s creepy and politely tells him ‘thanks but no thanks’.

But Claudio has no intention of letting her go.

Instead of never seeing him again, Jo wakes up sick and terrified, handcuffed to her own bed. She is given a week to prove her love for Claudio—or he will kill her.

Claudio, it turns out, is a man with nothing left to lose.

The Venus Trap tackles the emotional impact of divorce, the perils of modern dating and the age-old powers of lust and obsession
