From USA Today bestselling author Terri E. Laine comes a new standalone romance about an imperfect hero and the woman he can’t let go.
Fate plays matchmaker with my heart by repeatedly putting Gavin Volk in my path. Our mutually insane attraction is instant, captivating me from the first time we meet.
The wickedly gorgeous guy knows how to set my body on fire with just one look.
And he’s there for me like no guy has been before.
Only, he says he’s not boyfriend material, not good enough for me. But he won’t give me
a reason why.
If rumors at our college are to be believed, he’s dangerous, connected to the mob. I know he would never hurt me physically, but mentally he’s shielded by secrets he doesn’t trust me enough to share.
Yet, every time he kisses me, I feel it deep down in my soul.
Just when I think I’ve broken down his barriers, he builds a fortress between us again.
Though I want him.
And I know he wants me.
His secrets keep me far from his heart.
I should walk away with my pride intact.
I can’t keep allowing him in my life only to be shattered when he walks away.
Either he proves his love by trusting me or he needs to let me go for good.
However, my greatest fear is that if he tells me what he’s hiding, will I be strong enough to stay?
OMFG! Ever since devouring Because of Him back in September I have been “dying” to get my hands on Gavin and Megan’s story so you can imagine how thrilled I was when I discovered that Captivated by Himwas set to release in December. Immediately I knew that this story was going to captivate me. Lets just say that the story certainly did that and so much more.
Since I only recently discovered Terri E. Laine’s writing this year, this was only the second book that I’ve read of hers, but it certainly won’t be the last and I know that one day when I have time in my super busy life that I will go back and read her past releases. Her writing style is so beautiful that I can’t help but think of how many incredible stories I’ve missed over the years. I truly hope to redeem myself soon…
Captivated by Him was an addictively captivating read that captured me whole body and soul, pulling tightly on every single one of my heartstrings from beginning to end. This is one of those stories that you want to both savior and devour at the same time. I have no doubt in my mind that if I hadn’t had a million things to do (being an adult really sucks sometimes), I would have read this book in one sitting because I struggled to put Gavin and Megan’s story down. This story was filled with so many twists and turns that I had no idea what was around every corner (or page). When I first began this book I had no clue what to expect and lets just say that the author surprised me so many times throughout the story.
Since I can’t really tell you much more without spoiling this incredibly beautiful read, I will leave you with one final note… Although Because of Him and Captivated by Him are connected by the characters, they can both be enjoyed as standalones. However, being someone that FLOVED them so much, I can’t help but recommend reading them both! Trust me when I say that you won’t regret that decision for a second!
