— One wrong turn. One right man. —
Colin. Rule-follower. Future doctor. Witness to murder. Captive.
Taron. Survivalist. Mute. Murderer. Captor.
Like every other weekend, Colin is on his way home from university, but he’s taunted by the notion that he never takes risks in life and always follows the beaten path. On impulse, he decides to take a different route. Just this one time. What he doesn’t realize is that it’s the last time he has a choice.
He ends up taking a detour into the darkest pit of horror, abducted by a silent, imposing man with a blood-stained axe. But what seems like his worst nightmare might just prove to be a path to the kind of freedom Colin never knew existed.
Taron has lived alone for years. His land, his rules. He’d given up on company long ago. After all, attachment is a liability. He deals with his problems on his own, but the night he needs to dispose of an enemy, he ends up with a witness to his crime.
The last thing Taron needs is a nuisance of a captive. Colin doesn’t deserve death for setting foot on Taron’s land, but keeping him isn’t optimal either. It’s only when he finds out the city boy is gay that an altogether different option arises. One that isn’t right, yet tempts him every time Colin’s pretty eyes glare at him from the cage.
“When Taron looped the heavy metal collar around the slender neck and closed the padlock, his body throbbed with the excitement of knowing he owned this boy.
Was it wrong? Yes, yes it was.
Was it so, so good? Definitely.”

One impulse decision is about to change two lives forever…
Colin is a medical student. Tired of the expectations people around him have about his life he’s about to embark on a journey that will take him to a dark place. Returning home for the weekend he suddenly decides to take a different route home. What he never expected was to witness something horrifying and be taken captive by a silent, broody, imposing man.
Taron has lived a solitary life for years. Just him and his cats, he’s self-sufficient, his home is his haven and he’s worked hard to keep it that way. When a pretty boy gets caught up in his life and sees something that can’t ever be unseen he has no choice other than abducting him.
Colin’s emotions run riot after his capture. There’s anger, resentment, acceptance of sorts and the ever-present sexual attraction. For his part Taron can’t believe Colin has disrupted his life, he never wanted to develop feelings like this for anyone.
I loved both these characters. Colin was just a bit sassy, just a bit bratty, and just a bit adorable. And Taron…I ended up falling in love with him big time. He melted my heart on more than one occasion. I really wasn’t sure what to expect with his character initially.
Could a story that really centers around only two characters one of which is mute really hold my attention? And the answer is most definitely yes. Through the use of sign language, worked so well into the book, I almost forget Taron wasn’t actually talking. The sex is scorching hot but these two are also just a bit cute together…and hello…a first kiss (literally) that had me swooning…Not as dark as I was expecting but that’s perfectly ok here. This was a refreshing change on the Captive theme…
I recommend this book!
