Capture Me by Anna Zaires is a very, very dirty, dark, forbidden sort of book. It is not for the faint of heart. It blurs the lines of consent, blurs the lines of socially acceptable romance, and shatters (then spits) on the line of what you should read in public.
Blurb: Forced to join a secret intelligence agency at a young age, Russian interpreter/spy Yulia Tzakova is no stranger to dangerous men. But she’s never known one as ruthless and compelling as Lucas Kent. The hard-edged mercenary frightens her, yet she’s drawn to him—to a man she has no choice but to betray.
Second-in-command to a powerful arms dealer, Lucas Kent has never met a woman he’s wanted as much as Yulia. Obsessed with the beautiful blonde, he’ll stop at nothing to capture her and make her pay for her betrayal.
From the icy streets of Moscow to the steamy jungles of Colombia, their dark, all-consuming passion will either crush them or set them free.
Review: The first book in the Capture Me trilogy was free, so I scooped it up thinking I'd get a super hot read, but not expecting to fall for the 'buy the second two in the series' trap. God, what a fool I was! I bought the second two in the series before I'd even finishing the first and then spent the remainder of the night reading them without moving (not even to use the bathroom).
The book will definitely push the limits of even the most seasoned erotica reader. You will blush. Your heart will palpitate. Your palms will sweat. This series is the world's most dangerous game!
Yulia and Lucas are on two different sides of a war with no good people, really. Although, I suppose one side might be a little bit better than the other side. Depends on your point of view. It's kind of fun not knowing who to root for though. You want both sides to win, but you also want both sides to end up having mind-blowing sex so... yeah. It's got drama, it's got an obsessive man, and a woman capable of killing a man. It's the story you've been dreaming of.
This series was spectacular, but it also really made me want to read the first trilogy because the little bit of the secondary characters we got to see made me want to know exactly how the incredibly dark Julian wound up with the sweet, innocent Nora (spoiler: he kidnapped her).
If you like 50 Shades of Grey, but darker. The Crossfire series, but sexier. As I mentioned before there's some questionable consent situations, some potentially triggering language/situations, and some interesting, possibly Stockholm Syndrome romance. Purchase the entire trilogy for a mere $9.99 here.
