‘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?

Ok so firstly thank you to Amelia for letting me take part in this blog tour. Secondly I really hope that this review portrays just how much I LOVED this book.

Izzy is very strong and brave. She has had a lot of tough times recently and the last thing she needed was getting kidnapped. But she didn’t just lay there and take it. No, she fights for what, she believes to be, her life. She doesn’t act like a scared little girl. She kicks and she punches and she doesn’t give up. This is the sort of person Izzy is.

From the moment Ethan and Izzy meet there is this undeniable tension between them. They both feel it but they are too scared or too hurt to even think about what it means so they both try to ignore it. I loved the back and forth banter that they have when they are around each other.

Ethan like Izzy, hasn’t had the easiest of times. His whole life has been surrounded by rumours. Drug dealing, mafia, theaving. He also has a very bad reputation with women. However I think that Ethan is just a good man trying to stop himself from getting hurt again. He’s not sure he could stand the pain again so chooses not to feel.

I really loved Bex. She is a really good friend to Izzy and has been there for her through some tough times. She is also hilarious. Bex and Izzy’s conversations in the pub reminded me of my lunch times with the girls at work. It was easy girl conversation.

I have not laughed this much at a book in so long. Honestly, I was getting weird looks from people because I was laughing so much. There are so many many scenes that I loved in this book but one of my favourites is the scene in the Bridesmaid  dress shop. I had tears of laughter.

If you only read one book this year then I would make it this book.

I look forward to reading Beneath the moon and stars and any future books from Amelia.

Zach and Casey were funny and friendly and the fact that she wouldn’t be getting involved with either of them made things very easy and comfortable between them. She would just have to ignore […]
