I had a hard time liking this book. But it wasn't bad, and there are no actual issues aside from taste. I didn't enjoy it, but I know others will. I personally know many that would, and I'll recommend it.

I feel I should address what I didn't like first, so that you can check each thing off and decid ...more

All right, I spent most of the day reading Hostage to Love by Maya Blake. I must say that I happen to enjoyed the story. When first started to read Hostage to Love I wasn't sure I would like it. Let me just say that suspense stories are a hit or miss for me. However, this s ...more

To be totally honest, I didn't think I was going to like this book. The whole billionaire thing isn't my usual cup of tea. Suprisingly...

I LOVED IT! I did think the heroines name was a little odd, but it was supposed to be as it was part of the story. Belle, unlike most book heroines, didn't like th ...more

By pinK July 22, 2013

This is a book that refuses to be put down. The hero and heroine are both very well developed, but what surprised me the most is that the villain is also extremely well developed. It's been some time since I've read a suspenseful romance where the villain was as well developed as was in this novel. ...more

This book will keep your interest with all the moving pieces. Great story, character build, love and steamy but without any kink which was actually refreshing.
