Publisher's Summary

My sweet captive doesn't like to be touched. She will learn. She no longer has the right to refuse.

She flinches at the sight of my scarred face, but the way she whimpers and trembles makes perverse pleasure stir within me. I captured the little FBI agent while she was trying to take down my drug empire, and I can't allow that.

No one will ever touch her again - especially not my cruel brother.

Samantha is mine to keep and protect. Mine to play with and punish. All mine.

Contains the events of Sweet Captivity, told from the perspective of Andrés.

Narrator

I love Joe Arden’s narrations but in this one he’s supposed to be Colombian and his accent actually is Mexican. Maybe some people won’t notice but I’m Latina and I can notice the difference. He did a great job anyway.

You can skip book #1

This is basically a retelling of book one from Andres POV. I liked this one better. Seeing his POV made you understand what was going on so much more. It felt much less like a Stockholm Syndrome story, and one of two people who were basically captive, I saw it more of a story of two people coming together doing what they can to survive the situation they are in, rather than a woman held captive and falling for her kidnapper.
Narration was excellent, book one says it's dual narration but there is no male narration. This one is 100% male narration.

I liked it even more than the first book.

I was a little concerned about essentially buying the same book a second time...hearing the same story from Andrés' point of view...how different could it be? I'm SO glad that I did! The story and narration were wonderful. I definitely liked this version much more than the first one!

Great masculine POV

Loved the idea of getting to experience the story from his POV and was very surprised by how much I enjoyed it! 🥰

Liked this POV better than first book

I tried to listen to the first book twice and couldn’t make it through. About halfway through trying to listen the second time I discovered this book. I liked it much better. Although I did not enjoy the narration.

Did Mot Enjoy Narration

The book Sweet Captivity basically read by the male character. It’s supposed to be the male’s POV, but there was nothing added. I was hoping for some digging into Andres mind since I read Sweet Captivity, which I found fairly enjoyable, but this book was basically Joe Arden reading it back in a horrible accent with no emotion. Usually I like Joe Arden’s narration, but not in this case. Ugh it was dry. I actually liked the original book better. I listened to both for free. Definitely wouldn’t waste a credit for this version.

Better than book 1

My only regret is that I didn’t start to this book first. I like Joe Arden and it is really doesn’t matter to me if his accent is Mexican not Colombian as someone previously wrote, although this time there is not enough emotion in his narrative. If you like BDSM books, maybe the book is for you. In my opinion no action & too boring- Man does not live by sex alone!

Terrible

This was terrible and the first book I didn’t finish. What a terrible storyline. This guy is sick and the poor girl. Don’t waste your time unless you like rape and torture.

Gets Better

Listening to this book from Andrés point of you makes me fall in love with this book even more. I thought the original book sweet captivity was great and the female narrator was spot on..but this book is just as good. I think this is the first book where I enjoyed Joe Arden a lot. His narration was alluring even though it was more of a Mexican accent than a Colombian. I think he did a fantastic job. He drew me in even though I was skeptical at first. I didn’t think this book could get any better but listening to it from Andres point of you makes me appreciate it that much more. So worth the credit and so worth listening. Even though it’s the same story you feel like it’s a different book because it’s his point of you in his feelings. Take a chance he will not regret it

False advertising!

After listening to Sweet Captivity I wondered why the author chose not to combine both viewpoints of Andres and Samantha into one book. Having finished this book I don’t have a good answer. It is my firm belief that she should have combined both characters stories which would have been more powerful as an audiobook with dual narration. Throughout much of this book the plot was total repetition of the first book so I knew how their story would end so I can only rate it with 3 stars. I liked the characters and the storyline but as an audiobook lover I was hugely disappointed to find out that Joe Arden does not appear in book one, nor does Lucy Rivers appear in book 1.5. False advertising! The narration performances elevate this story and I found them both nuanced and poignant.

same book as 1st but different POV

this book is narrated by Joe Arden and is the male POV of the the first book (sweet captivity). i found it helpful to listen to this point of view as it helped me understand the logic in the actions of the characters more. it is 20% story and the rest sex. some people will find the content triggering. the book is excellently narrated by JA

Wow. This book is brutal

This book has a fantastic storyline. With a ruthless unlikely hero to this story I loved it. The dynamic between the main characters is full of chemistry. A fantastic performance from Joe.

A Total Turnoff!

I tried to keep going with the story but there was so many things that turned me off from the very start I just had to bail.
I usually like Joe Arden as a narrator, but the accent he uses in the story was just one big, turn off. The description of Samantha was the same. Nothing sexy about either character. Sadly, there wasn't anything appealing in this one for me and the story was stale from the start.

Almost 100% the same

It was disappointing that this book had so little original content. I expected to hear more about Andres and more about his point of view but most of the book is a word for word repetition of the previous book. Extremely disappointed. The performance was really good though.

disappointing

I thought this was a waste of my credit as it is exactly the same as book one in the series only difference is the sex of the narrator. I didn't learn anything new from this book. I feel it's a piss take when authors do this. I love Joe Arden but his Spanish accent in this narration was annoying. Absolutely disappointed.

So many red flags

This is a story about rape and abuse and really sends some troubling signals about consent and how a person can be broken if you just try hard enough. Joe Arden is a superstar amongst narrators and does a terrific job, even in the context of adding an accent into the mix. It was free with membership and Joe Arden was enough to make me try it, but I found it worrying even knowing it is fiction.

I really enjoyed this.

this is the male perspective of the previous book. I didn't like the previous book as I prefer dual narration but lived this one.
