I’d never even kissed a boy the night I met Stone. The night I saw him kill. The night he spared my life. That was only the beginning.

He turns up in my car again and again, dangerous and full of raw power. “Drive,” he tells me, and I have no choice. He’s a criminal with burning green eyes, invading my life and my dreams.

The police say he’s dangerously obsessed with me, but I’m the one who can’t stop thinking about him. Maybe it’s wrong to let him touch me. Maybe it’s wrong to touch him back. Maybe these twisted dates need to stop. Except he feels like the only real thing in my world of designer labels and mansions.

So I drive us under threat, until it’s hard to remember I don’t want to be there.

Until it’s too late to turn back.

HOSTAGE is a dangerous standalone romance by New York Times bestselling authors Skye Warren and Annika Martin. It’s set in the same world as PRISONER, but can read separately!

My Review:

3 stars

Don’t see my three stars and count this book out. It wasn’t a bad book, I just didn’t connect to this book like I connected to Prisoner.

Brooke is a 16 year old girl who ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time. She tries to do the right thing in the situation she ends up in but it turns out to be a mistake.

Stone has had a hard life and is trying to get revenge on those who have wronged him and his brothers in the past.

Brooke and Stone end up meeting each other under not so great circumstances. But once their first encounter is over, that should be the end of things, right?


Brooke is Stone’s “Hostage”. He can’t keep himself away from her. No matter how hard he tires .

Over the next few years, he randomly sees her. But his mission in life is to hunt down and kill those responsible for what happened to him when he was younger never changes.

What happens when his past and her present mix?

Can they both make it out alive?

This book wasn’t a bad read. I just did not connect to it like I did Prisoner. Will I continue to read books from these two authors….of course I will. Just because I don’t connect with one book doesn’t mean I give up on an author.

About the Authors:

Annika Martin


I love writing sexy stories about dangerous heroes, kicking snow clumps off the bottoms of cars (Minnesota FTW!) and taking long walks with my husband (a writer of hugely serious essays!) and wishing our two cats could come along with us on leashes, but that turns out to be a road to utter misery.

I’ve been writing all my life while working various jobs, from waitress at a zillion different places to advertising copywriter, but now I’m a full-time author. Dream achieved! Seriously, I’m so full of gratitude for that. I love writing books!

I’m into running, yoga, and trying to save animals and the planet. My favorite TV shows are the Americans and Daredevil, and my favorite musicians are Elliott Smith, Sia, and Alice in Chains. I spend way too much time in coffee shops. In my spare time I write as the RITA award-winning author Carolyn Crane.
