Review: Calen's Captive by Lacy LeRoux

Publication Date: February 13, 2015

Series: A Singular Obsession #2
Rating: 5 Stars

Official Blurb: 

Calen is a good man from a bad family. He’s worked hard for success, but something’s missing…or rather, someone.

Calen is the son of an Irish mobster, but he’s rejected his legacy and has made a name for himself as a club owner. After years of hard work, he has the life he’s always wanted. Almost.

Then his father asks him to take a meeting with a rival crew. It’s too important to say no. Reluctantly, he drives out to the middle of nowhere to meet them. There to negotiate for reparations, he sees an innocent girl being held against her will—someone who looks very familiar.

Unwilling to leave the girl to a fate worse than death, he demands she be included as part of the deal. Maia is forced to stay with Calen for her safety, but she soon finds out he has ulterior motives for protecting her.

***Calen's Captive is the second book in the Singular Obsession Series. No cliffhangers and no serials. Each novel stands alone. Though it flirts with some bondage, Calen's Captive is not a BDSM title. Not suitable for readers under 18.***

Calen's Captive can be read as a standalone and is book 2 in a series, but I recommend that you read book 1, as there are several characters in Calen's Captive that you already meet briefly in book 1.

I really actually loved this book for the simple fact that throughout the story, there were times when I laughed out loud over Calen's "faerie fetish" because it's kind of cute and adorable. Calen isn't an over-the-top alpha, but you can see from the moment he lays eyes on Maia, he's besotted by her and well do whatever he can to make her safe and happy.

This was just an all around interesting book that left me wanting to read more from Lucy Leroux. If you're a fan of mystery, adventure, action, romance, and a hot alpha, then this book is definitely for you.
