Book Review: Release by Louise J.

Title – Release (Captured, #2)
Author – Louise J
Genre – Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date – July 23, 2013


I knew from the start that I should stay away from Dane, and I would have – if he’d stayed away from me. Astoundingly sexy with a consuming presence of unspoken command, he enthralls me to the point of almost being incapable of rational thoughts, almost being incapable of resisting him. My hands want to explore him. My tongue wants to taste him. My body begs to experience him. I crave him. Now he’s starting to intrude on a level that’s harder to fight. I know what he wants from me. I also know that Dane is not the type of man you expect to keep.

Things are never straightforward with women like Brooklyn. She’s not the kind whose bed you can slip out of and walk away from without ‘special connections’ or ‘emotions’ expected or offered. She’s the type of woman I prefer to keep my distance from, but like an undersexed, hormonal idiot, I still pursued her. I swear getting turned on by her is like getting turned on for the first time in my life. Now I have her in my grasp, but I know where this will lead. And I’m never the one that gets hurt in situations like this.

A woman who has barely put her broken-self back together and a man who turned his back on love a long time ago. When Dane and Brooklyn first met it appeared to be a simple case of lust between two opposites, but it was the beginning of an intense, emotional journey that would bring forth the pain they both attempted to leave in their pasts, and an encapsulation of feelings neither welcomed but were powerless to stop. Sometimes in life there is no choice but to take a risk.

*Release takes place in the months leading up to the end of If Only (book one in the Captured series), and includes major spoilers from Joe and Callie’s story.

*This book contains graphic sexual content.

Our Book Review:
4 Stars

Release is the second book in the Captured series. The whole gang is back for this one but it is focused on Dane and his lovely dancer Brooklyn.

Release introduces us to Brooklyn a strong willed, beautiful dancer who captures the eyes and heart of Dane.

Given Dane's reputation and a past full of pain for Brooklyn their relationship is faced with many obstacles. From trust issues and the inability to be fully open with each other emotionally to amazing sex Release allows us to dive in to their relationship while revealing some of what happened while Callie was away.

Although I was left wanting more of Callie and Joe getting to know Dane and Brooklyn was very interesting. I look forward to getting to know the rest of the group more and to see where the relationship between Dane and Brooklyn goes. I only ask that we get more of Callie and definitely much more of Joe.

Author Bio:
Louise J has always been a daydreamer, but never considered writing a novel until days before typing the first words to If Only. Joe and Callie (and Gerard) appeared in a dream and her mind has never been her own since then, and she’s never alone. When she’s not writing she spends a lot of time missing out on huge chunks of conversation, movies, and TV shows thanks to many wonderful, but highly invasive characters bouncing around in her head, showing her their stories. In the name of research, those fabulous characters have led her to parts of the world she never would have dreamed of, and, as a result, has gained some of the most amazing memories. The rest of the time Louise J is trying to be a good wife to the greatest husband she could ever have asked for.
