Peek Inside Free Hostage

Jaxon King is a muddler.
A manipulator. A liar. A con and a thief.
He’s as beautiful as innocence, as harmless as a feather.
Except, it’s all an illusion.
But fool that I am—I still rush in.
Now, I am a part of his game.
And the only way to win...is to give in.

My name is Timberly Day. I don’t drink, but I do know things.
I know the heart beats over 100,000 times per day.
I know for every one second, lightning strikes the Earth 100 times.

I also know that Jaxon King—the bloody tosser!—is a muddler.
A manipulator. A liar. A con, a thief...and a closet nerd.
He’s as beautiful as innocence, as harmless as a feather.
Except, it’s all an illusion.

I see him and I see lies. I smell him and I taste deceit.
And still—fool that I am—I rush in.
His eyes are like ice. His tongue is like fire.
His lies are white, but his touch is red hot.

I had the chance to run.
I didn’t.
Now, I am a part of the game.
And the only way to win...is to give in.

Praise

“This book was fantastic and as crazy as crazy gets. The characters are written to perfection, the plot line is perfect, the backstory is important in this one and is woven seamlessly into the story. Loved it. It's a great story, great twists, insanely great characters that you'd want as friends.  An absolute must read” –Lori Z., NetGalley

“Oh my god, this was absolutely hilarious. I laughed so hard I cried in places. Jaxon is the perfect aloof hero, loved him and watching how hard he fell. Timberly was fantastic, odd name, odd girl but absolutely hilarious. Mel and collin, were brilliant secondary characters. I couldn't stop reading and certainly never expected it to end how it did. Loved it!” –Charly M., NetGalley

Twists, turns, and a hero to die for.” –Erika C., NetGalley

Sweet Holy titfire. Where do I begin? There needs to be more than five stars for this book. I won't lie, I love everything and anything that S. Ann writes but hands down this is her best work yet.

You smell like games and lies and knavery and immorality

I am on a roll! S Ann Cole joins a short list of new-to-me authors whose books I have thoroughly enjoyed.

With a title like ‘Free Hostage’, I’ll admit I was expecting something BDSM-ish and that’s not my jam. The blurb, however, had me hoo... ...more

5+ 'Conned right into my heart' Stars!

Free Hostage well and truly blew my mind. I'm not sure what I anticipated when I started this book. Clever, witty, captivating and exceptional story-telling is what I found in the pages I couldn't flip through fast enough.

What can I say? I could spew facts; all the things we ever or maybe never wanted to know Timber knows them. What an amazing creature she was, I absolutely loved her. Timber had it all going on, the brilliance, the wily wit, no nonsense, sensitive, and so much more. Her bestie Mel was the ballsy o... ...more

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.

Wow, there should be an option to add an extra star for an exceptional book! I was so intrigued with this book that I could not put it down and stayed up til 3 am to finish it (I had to be up for work at 7 am so not the best choice!)!

S. Ann!! Why did you do this to me!? Huh!? Why!!

I can’t even find the words to express how mind blown and fulfill I am. I’ve been in a book funk for awhile, I wanted something new and exciting to read, nothing that I could predict and guess what S. Ann? You came through with this one. Di ting se... ...more

By Elaine December 07, 2017

I definitely didn’t see this one coming - the blurb didn’t give me any clues but there again, most of the action in this story involves conning others, so maybe it is particularly apt? Don’t believe a thing they say or do, don’t be sure just who you can trust and get ready for a real page turner,... ...more

By Crystal November 08, 2017

This book took me a chapter or two to get into, but once I dug in I was hooked and did not want to put it down. The book is a bit wacky and hard to follow. Everyone is a Con, so you don’t know what’s truth and what’s the con. It is captivating. You have an idea of who the main players are but it’... ...more

By Sissy's Romance Book Review November 23, 2017

Free Hostage by S. Ann Cole is a exciting read for sure. It keeps you guessing since most of the characters in this story are con-artist. But it is a book that is very hard to put down. Really enjoyed it! ...more

S. Ann Cole

About the author

S. Ann Cole

Reader first and second a writer, S. Ann Cole is an exaggerator, a laugher, sometimes overly chatty, sometimes overly shy. She’s afraid of cats, dogs, snakes—heck, she’s only tolerable to gold fishes in a tank. She hates fireworks, schmaltz, and arrogance. She loves carbs, full moons, and humility. She lives nowhere and everywhere. Jokey people are her favorite people to be around, as laughter is the way to her heart. An accented island girl, she loves GOD, fiercely, and believes prayer is the essence of all good, great, wonderful and miraculous things, and the most powerful privilege given unto man. A hater of rain and thunderstorms, Ann is the author of eight contemporary romance novels, all of which are bold, unconventional and rule-breaking. When Ann’s not abusing her computer keyboard, you can find her nosing a novel, watching anything on television that makes her laugh until she breaks into hiccups (loves Disney, TBS, and Impractical Jokers!) studying the Bible, or sipping red wine. You can find Ann on all social media platforms, but her current obsession is Instagram and Goodreads. Catch her on the gram, how bout dah?
