In the passionate, gut-wrenching sequel to Amber Hart’s Until You Find Me, Raven and Jospin must fight for each other in a world where love is never safe—and power is deadly.
Raven, a college girl from Michigan, came to the jungles of Cameroon searching for closure. Falling for Jospin, a handsome, charismatic hunter with dark secrets of his own, was never part of the plan.
But despite their differences, their attraction is addictive, as exhilarating and wild as the rain forest itself—and also as dangerous.For the sake of both their lives, their heated affair must remain a secret.
Raven wants justice for her conservationist father’s death; to help her, Jospin must turn his back on his own father and the only life he has ever known. Together they risk being hunted by a band of ruthless poachers, but they take the chance anyway, working to bring down their enemies between each stolen kiss.But when one slip puts Raven’s life at stake, Jospin knows he must act.
He has captured Raven’s heart—now can he set her free?
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This review will contain spoilers for the first book. It will be hidden but if you want to read, just click “view spoiler”.
Amber Hart does it again! I don’t know how this author always manages to bring the feels. She really has a way with words and her writing is always so eloquent.
View Spoiler »Jospin has sacrificed his place in his tribe for Raven’s life. Now, he is banished and left to die in the woods alone. He seeks refuge at the habitat while he plots to get Raven back, safe and sound. What he doesn’t know is that Raven and Clovis are plotting revenge on Jospin’s tribe, wanting to bring them all down for being poachers and murderers. « Hide Spoiler
Jospin is a character that your lady parts will not forget (sorry, I had to). He is mature, responsible, protects those he loves the most and he is truly a man of honor in this sequel. We learn just how much Jospin is willing to do to save Raven, show how in love he is with her and make sacrifices that could be deadly.
I can’t say much else because it will be filled with spoilers. This story is filled with so many suspense! I read this book in two hours…a book that has 90k words, okay? I was hooked! I tried to stop and read more later but I couldn’t. The suspense was eating at me and begging me to keep on reading until I finished the story, which I did. I was so happy to read about Leahcim in Captured By You. I fell in love with this gorilla in the first book and I fell even more in love now that I read more about him.
I had more Clovis time, who is a very respectful man who I wish I could have. Not many would have been loyal but Clovis was very loyal to Raven and Jospin and he never acted on his hidden feelings for Raven. He is truly fantastic and I hope there is at least a novella for his story. I was happy to find out that we really get more of Clovis in this story. I wanted more of him in the first book and I got him now.
The characters in this story are very strong and together, they can be a powerful team. The chemistry is just… Wow! And the sex scenes will have you fanning yourself because whoo, they are intense. Imagine having sex in an exotic forest, or in a cave near a waterfall in an exotic forest… I’m telling you, things can get really hot!
This book is powerful, exposed with raw emotions and filled with passion for both Jospin and Raven and the passion that one has to do what is right and fight until the end for it. My love for gorillas grew again and I hate that poachers do exist and they do this daily. This book is not only fiction but it contains the harsh truth that we don’t see where we live but in other parts of the world, it happens. This book gives light and awareness to this matter and it really motivates the reader to find out more.
