Liam & Tria’s story continues in Trapped!


Barnes & Noble:



Bizarre rituals on a remote island in Maine.
My crazy neighbor lying naked in the produce section of a grocery store.
The sting of a knife as it slices through my flesh.
Now I know why they say life is never easy.
The soft touch of Tria’s hand against my chest is the only thing that keeps me going, but there are consequences. As a fighter, I should be able to deal with anything life throws at me, but there is one circumstance I simply can’t handle.
I only have one coping mechanism: a tube around my arm and a needle in my vein.


(WARNING: Graphic language)

I felt my body tighten at her touch, and my skin tingled as her fingers moved over my chest and down to my abs. She took one finger and slid it over the ridge of each muscle. I caught her under her chin with my fingers and brought her mouth back to mine.

Open mouthed, I moved from her lips, up the line of her jaw, to her ear, and back again. With my free hand, I crept from her hip up her side, and my thumb stroked the skin of her stomach. I felt her hand over mine.

I started to pull away, assuming her intent was to tell me to stop, but her grip on my fingers tightened. Opening my eyes, I looked down at her and watched her tongue dart out over her lips before she slowly pushed my hand upwards.

“You sure?” I breathed, hating myself for even asking the question instead of jumping on the opportunity. In response, Tria rose up just enough to pull her shirt up over her head.

My c*ck tried to jump right through the material of my jeans to tit f*ck her right there in her bra.

I had to physically restrain myself from the action as she settled back above me on her knees. The bra itself wasn’t unfamiliar—I’d seen all of her clothes in the drawers before—but having the lacy white material wrapped around her smooth breasts laid out before me was completely different.

I sat up and moved her with me until she was flat on her back on the couch, and I was hovering over her. I moistened my lips as I gazed down at the pale flesh before me with only a slight curve visible at the top of the lacy front.

As slowly as I could endure, I traced her skin from the edge of the thin strap around her shoulder and down to the mound of flesh against the lace edge. Barely touching her, I outlined from one edge over the curve, down into the slight dip, and back over again. My fingertip completed the trek back up to her other shoulder, and then began to make its way down again.

Once it hit the center of the dip again, I fanned out my fingers—still keeping my touch ultra-light—and stroked slowly toward the outside of her breast. I could feel my own breathing increasing in tempo with hers as I touched her through the thin material. I mimicked the motion with my other hand and the other breast, leaning in to kiss her shoulder as I moved.


For a number of reasons, this book totally worked for me. First, I’m one of those readers who actually almost always end up loving the 2nd book in a series more than the 1st, ie, if I happen to really enjoy the 1st one. Probably because I have better knowledge of what to expect and some emotion has been invested already to make it flourish. Second, I feel like the story has hit its stride here. Third, I somehow felt the emotions more in this one.

In the first book, we got a glimpse into Tria’s past and all the effed-up-ness that came with it and this is where this book picked up. Liam and Tria go thru that and return to their daily lives. Again, it feels like there’s not a whole lot of arc to the story but this time around, I appreciated more seeing them go thru daily stuff. Frankly, had this been more than 3 books and I get the more of the same, I’ll be just a happy camper. But getting back to this one, now it’s also about moving their relationship a few more steps forward, in and out of the bedroom.

I thought Liam could not be any more sweet about he’s dealing with the whole relationship thing. No, he’s not perfect as he has own issues to deal with that he just struggles to share with Tria and he’s certainly no saint with his temper, but I can see that he’s really trying. And seriously, he just continues to crack me up with his thoughts. It’s the most charming thing! Tria, I know she has issues, and I almost lost my patience with her at one point, but I understood eventually. It’s hard to relate, but at least, like I said, I understood. She is exactly what Liam needs.

Despite their history, there is such innocence to their relationship. Given what Tria’s childhood’s like and what I think Liam went thru, it felt like their childhood was cut short yet it also stunted their emotional maturity, to a degree, so there is this youth-like quality to their interaction.

There is so much more to reveal about Liam’s past. There are enough details yet still not enough to fully explain how he became who he is. It’s quite sad actually seeing him go thru what he’s going thru. There’s just no way to get mad at him, it’s more heartbreaking really.

I’m confused but feeling much for Liam and Tria in the last 20%. Oh Shay, why, oh, why must you end this book that way??? I’m just glad that bk 3 is practically around the corner. I wanna see these kids get their HEA!!!
