From USA Today Bestselling Author Karen Fenech comes another story in her bestselling Protectors Series.

CAUGHT (A Protectors Series Novella that takes place between the Protectors books)
** This novella may be read on its own and does not end on a cliffhanger.

While on her way home from work, Elle Jameson is abducted by a human trafficker. Her abductor, Sloane Devlin, is a man cloaked in secrets and contradictions. He takes her away from the traffickers he works for but will not set her free.

Sloane claims all is not as it seems and that he will see her safely home. Elle cannot separate the truth from the lie yet despite her resolve she is softening toward him and believing him, trusting him, may cost Elle her life.


My thoughts:

This book contains adult themes. 

This book follows Elle Jameson as she is abducted to be sold off via human trafficking.  Elle ends up getting rescued by her original captor Sloane and now needs to figure out how she can trust. 

Prior to being abducted Elle had a job as an architect assistant and seemed to be going well with her life.  During her abduction it becomes a little detailed and the emotions that come through bring it to life.  I felt like the author was connected to Elle when she was describing now only what was going on, but how she was feeling. 

Elle is the main character and the only POV that we get during this book.  I enjoyed learning more about Elle and also seeing the situation through her eyes. 

Although this is a short novella I would have loved to see duel POV from Elle and Sloane.  I feel like Sloane had to have a lot of emotions going on I would have loved to read about. 

After reading this novella I will be looking into reading some more Karen Fenech.  I enjoyed the short story and also enjoyed the author's writing style. 

I would suggest this as a perfect weekend read.  It was easy to sit down and read this book quickly while being cozy on the couch. 

I received a copy of this book for signing up for Karen Fenech's newsletter. This does not effect my review or opinion of this book.
