Netgalley ARC Review - Kidnapped by the Billionaire by Jackie Ashenden!


He kissed her the way he'd run her down, conquering her, taking her...

A priceless plan. An illicit attraction.
Seven years ago, billionaire-turned-bodyguard Elijah Hunt lost everything he had-his family, his future-and now he wants revenge. But when he decides to kidnap the daughter of the man who ruined his life, Elijah gets a lot more than he bargained for. Violet Fitzgerald is nothing like her corrupt wealthy father. In fact, she's so disarmingly independent-and irresistible-that she just might be dangerous...

And a love that's too good to be true.
Violet never thought she'd feel a connection to her captor. But there's something beneath Elijah's steel-bodied exterior that makes her want to know him more deeply...and surrender to his every demand. But once Elijah's erotic fantasies become a reality-and he and Violet develop a real romantic connection-he finds himself in a quandary: Is he still the one in control? Or has Violet imprisoned him-body and soul?


So I have to admit, this book scared me a bit at first. The first few chapters remind me of a dark romance, and I almost didn't continue. Surprisingly, I am glad I did. And yes, it still has a twinge of dark romance which I normally dislike, this book only had a bit of it. Elijah is a very rough, betrayed, scary man, but luckily, after kidnapping Violet, he doesn't hurt her but starts to fall for her. There is a definite strong romance and danger and action to the story that is appealing. The characters are complex and the story is fast paced with lots of things going on. I actually ended up not just liking Kidnapped by the Billionaire, but loving it!

Its a great story with a good plot with terrific, almost, complicated characters. There is romance that could almost border on the dark side, but the caring and protectiveness that Elijah has for Violet will also melt readers. 

Kidnapped by the Billionaire by Jackie Ashenden deserves a SHOCKING FOUR SHOOTING STARS! It is a nail-biting, dangerous, action-packed romance with dark undertones. Perfect for readers that are looking for that crazy sensational adrenaline rush!
