Book & Author Details:
The Complete Captive Heart Duet by Carrie Aarons
Publication date: 15th August 2019
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Charlotte never thought she’d be staring down the barrel of a gun when she walked into her thankless bank job. Especially one that is held by her childhood neighbor and the boy who broke her young heart, Tucker. And the last thing she expected was to become his hostage. What ensues is a story of heartbreak, recovery, passion, and prevailing through it all to save the love that still burns between them.
“Aarons takes a typical boy next door romance and turns it on its head. No flowers and sweet, swoon-worthy late night stolen kisses here. There is grit and suspense and a struggle to move forward; and Aarons does it flawlessly.” -The Read Report
We knew each other a lifetime ago. And then…
We lost childhoods. We lost opportunities. We lost love.
Fate is giving us another chance. But a chance at what?
Because even though we’ve been brought back to each other under the worst of circumstances…
We are still. So. Damn. Lost.
We found each other where no else could.
Found a purpose. Found ourselves. Found love.
But then life got in the way.
Three years later and the people that we once were are nowhere to be found.
Can our love survive everything we’ve put it through?
Can we find a way back to each other…
Well, this is a different kind of romance.
Don’t get caught up in your head about whether this, that and the other would have happened in reality – this is, after all, fiction. Let yourself be wrapped up in the emotion of this piece. This is such a strongly character driven story, that it is impossible not to get caught up in the drama, and to be swept along with the tide of feelings that overcome these two.
This is, I think, a story which would be easy to gush about. Instead, I will just say that if you enjoy books which give you all the feels, this is for you.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
Author of romance novels such as Red Card and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the stories she dreams up, and the yoga pant dress code, much better.
When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She lives in the suburbs of New Jersey with her husband, daughter and dog.
