The blurb:

‘We’re from KMW. Do exactly as you’re told and you won’t get hurt...'

Being grabbed off the street, blind folded, tied up and thrown into a van was not what Izzy expected to happen when she stepped out the door that morning. But when an accidental kidnapping at the hands of the sexy Ethan Chase and his 'Kidnap My Wife' sexual fantasy business leads to just that, Izzy seizes the chance to turn her misfortune into a brilliant new job opportunity…

Since then, life has been one big tangle of new client meetings, fake kidnapping pick-ups, and handling the temperamental, but drop dead gorgeous 'bad boy' Mr Chase. But, as liberating as being tied up in Ethan's life is, Izzy knows the time is fast approaching when she must make some decisions and take charge of her future. The only question is: will Ethan allow himself to be a part of it?

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

This is Amelia’s second book. I loved her first one Beneath the Moon and the Stars and I was really excited for this one and she did not disappoint me, quite the opposite, I FELL IN LOVE with this story on the first page.

The story starts with some action, which is great. I immediately felt part of this world and I wanted more. The accidental kidnapping not only introduces us to Izzy, but also Ethan, the main characters of this book. I liked Izzy from the start, she is strong, ambitious, clever, funny and much more. And Ethan, well one thing is clear from the start: He is HOT. However, he comes across grumpy and bossy, which is all part of the story of course. I got to like him really fast, because behind his behaviour, he showed his real face from time to time. He is very caring, emotional, sweet, sexy, passionate, strong… just wow!!! ;)

Izzy sees her chance for a job and stars working for Ethan’s “Kidnap My Wife” business. The chemistry and connection these two had from the start was incredible!!! Sparks were constantly flying between them, but why show it to the other person right?!
The tension and attraction was feelable throughout the pages and described in the most detailed and passionate way, I loved it. We got to read from both their perspectives, which was a great change and it made their feelings really clear. I was waiting for something to happen between them and Amelia built up the tension in a genius way!!! These scenes were full of magic and passion.

Before Izzy knows it, she is falling for him. But he doesn’t do relationships and anyway… They both realise though, that they somehow cannot be without the other person, which evidentially leads to this question: the future! Izzy is ready to fight for it, but what about Ethan. It was very interesting discovering, why Ethan is the way he is, he went through a lot in his past and that’s why he doesn’t want more. He wants something better for her…
Both their pasts have an influence on the person they are today, it’s now about to leave this behind and be ready for what’s ahead. Are they both ready to fight for what they want and can Izzy crack his shell?!

Their journey is full of twists and turns, but also very sweet and adorable moments. The way he acts when his mother turns up is amazing, or when he shows up at Izzy’s best friend’s wedding. Of course there are also misunderstandings, which kept the drama up.
Both Izzy and Ethan felt a whole when they were not together, and I felt that too, I always wanted them to be together.

They had some passionate moments, which adds an additional level to this book, loved it. And the emotions are definitely not missing. I rarely felt closer to character’s in a book. Amelia’s waiting allows you to be a real part of the story. The storyline was wonderful to follow. The writing is very gripping, magical, passionate, vivid, spellbinding, emotional and authentic. A MUST READ!!!!

Thank you Amelia for writing another INCREDIBLE story – it’s an amazing story full of heart, passion, desire, love and feelings!!! You’re a genius!!!! I need more of your stories…
