ER nurse Samantha Edgars has been living in an emotional vacuum since the death of her daughter. Mentally and physically exhausted following a difficult shift, she’s suddenly jolted from her stupor when she’s bound and gagged, then tossed into the back of her car. Forced to tend a bleeding FBI agent and his injured witness, she’s terrified. But Samantha quickly learns the rogue agent and orphaned boy need more than just her professional skills. Danger is bearing down on them, and she must learn to trust Jake—and her heart— if they’re all going to survive.
What I liked: I was just in the mood for a quick, not too complicated book. That is exactly what I got in Kidnapped. It's not a complex story but is pretty well written and it kept me entertained. As it's not a very long book, Kidnapped moved a bit quickly in not only the plot but the attraction between the lead characters.
The basis of the story was good; not earth shattering by any means but real enough to continue reading. I never gave up on the story and parts of it were well done. It was somewhat predictable but again, I wasn't expecting a hot new best seller.
What I didn't like: It wasn't so much what I didn't like but it was what I needed to read when I read it. It's not deep; it's not a spellbinding romantic suspense. It was a good pleasant read.
I think most readers choose a book to read based on their mood. That is exactly how I picked Kidnapped. I really had no expectations so I wasn't disappointed. If you're looking for a spine tingling, captivating romantic suspense, Kidnapped isn't it. Looking for a pleasant, predictable romantic suspense, Kidnapped is for you.
Recommended for romantic suspense readers.
