Publisher's Summary

Injured in the woods. Taken in by four hunky mountain men. They had one simple rule. I broke it, anyway.

Why’d I do it? Because, I'm a nosy brat. I had to know what they were doing on Savage Mountain. Why were they hiding there? And when I found, out, I was sorry I’d snooped. Because, these weren’t the nicest of people. Although, they sure freaked nice. That made it hard to leave. Well, their tying me to the bed made it hard to leave, too. 

Sharing a cabin with four brawny mountain men? Yeah, it was as about as hot and dirty as you’d expect it to be. 

This naughty, over-the-top romance includes four hulking mountain men with checkered pasts and doubtful futures, claiming the one woman they can’t live without. 

Please note: If you love outrageous reverse harem stories with a bit of spanking, tying up, voyeurism, and tough-as-nails military dudes, this might be the book for you.

Kick ass mountain men!

this is an awesome reverse harem story! I love how Jo is such and spit fire and doesn't take shot from the guys especially Blaze biggest hard ass of them all! In the end the hard ass finally admits to liking Jo and her spirit just as Jax, Reed, and Pierce does! This story also and some great steamy scenes that are amazingly written! definitely recommend you pick this story up!

Was a bit amateurish

Four guys and one girl. This type of setup requires some thinking through, and I just don't think that happened. The 4 guys' reasons for being hold-up in the mountains keeping a low profile were weak full of holes. The same can be said for her back story. I didn't buy most of the actions. The writing was also a bit repetitive and not in keeping with the nature of the story. It didn't feel like it naturally went together. There were also a few "cans of worms" opened up in the story that weren't ever brought to resolution. Clumsy.

The narrator wasn't terrible, but she wasn't good either.

Sexy mountain men

This is an enjoyable story with suspense, military guys, and hot attraction between the characters. The four men all have different personalities and Jo liked pushing their buttons. I listened to the audiobook and found it a little difficult knowing which of the males was speaking, although the names were mentioned enough that it did become clear.

The Captive

I loved this hot and steamy reverse harem story. It had sexy alpha males and was a fun way to spend the afternoon. I can't wait to listen to the rest of this series. Laurie West did a great job bringing this story to life. I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Expected

Jo and her best friend planned a girl's camping trip but when her friend was injured Jo went by herself. At first, it was paradise but after a nightlong rainstorm is was a muddy mess. Unexpected visitors and an accident led to Jo becoming the partly unwanted guest in a secret cabin deep in the woods. Home to four sexy men. The men have secrets, Jo has secrets of their own but soon enough it's no secret that there is sexual tension between Jo and the men. They don't want her there but they definitely want her.

This is a fast-burn Reverse Harem. Mika's writing style is easy and entertaining. The characters were a mixed bag. At times likable, at times over the top bratty or nasty. Overreacting was a common theme in the cabin. The story is sexy even if it lacks depth and is less than plausible. I won't go into the points I found ridiculous except to comment on the bathing and bathroom situation. Ick and ick. If you want a mindless escape this is a perfect read.

Laurie West did a nice job with the narration.

Reverse Harem Romance

This is the first book in the Savage Mountaine Men Series, a Reverse Harem Romance. I love all about this book: the cover, the characters, the multiple POV, the sizzling chemistry, and the story. The storyline is fast-paced, intriguing, sexy/hot, and suspenseful. Laurie West did a great job with the narration. Looking forward to listen to the next book in the Series, The Runaway. I love Mika Lane's writing.

reverse harem hotties

With a mouthy heroine and 4 hulking dudes alone in the woods, The Captive is exactly what you expect. I think the only think missing is the bow chicka wow wow soundtrack.

If your down for hot and heavy, you will definitely enjoy The Captive. If you like your stories more plot centric, not so much. I like the hot and heavy lile any horny individual but I like to flow more. Make it seem more natural and less low budget porn.

I will say the narrator tried to give us 4 unique voices for the male characters.

All things considered, I probably wouldn't continue the series.

Good story, great narrator

I found some of this book frustrating. Mostly to do with Joelle. She was demanding, insisting she had the right to know every bodies secret when she refused to share her own.
After twisting her ankle she's stuck with the 4 guys in their bachelor cabin in the middle of nowhere. Demanding secrets and falling for all the guys one by one and having lots of sex, everywhere.
Considering the reason they were all on the mountain, I found the HEA hard to believe.
The narrator Laurie West was brilliant, one of the best I've heard so far. She was so easy to listen to, the story just flowed and she did great with other voices so you knew who was talking. I could listen to her again and gain.

meh

thought I'd give it a try. I don't go into these expecting a fabulous plot but I just didn't enjoy this one at all. Thought Jo was an idiot and annoying. Didn't really think the sex was all that hot and it seemed to take too long for what this book was supposed to be.

Great story!

This is a great story that is well written and narrated. It’s an erotic romance that will make you swoon. The narrator does a fantastic job with the characters and voices of each character which makes it easy to distinguish between the characters.

The Captive.

Loved listening to the audiobook, the story was well written the characters were all developed nicely, the way she met the men to how she felt to the end it was hot and steamy, this book also has a spicey, erotic, passion, lust and love. It really is worth reading or listening to the audiobook.
The narrator was clearly spoken and easy to understand.
