I cannot explain the plot of this book without giving away too many spoilers, so instead, here’s the synopsis from Goodreads: Audrey Green’s life was going nowhere fast. She didn’t think things could get any worse until a stranger at a door proved her wrong. Mistaken for another woman, Audrey is abducted and thrown into a situation she thought possible only in the movies. Upon discovering the identity of her gorgeous yet arrogant captor, Audrey is forced to make the hardest decision of her life: Fight for her freedom… or stay and be rewarded. A simple choice with a huge reward. Easy decision, right? Or will her choice and her captor’s secret ultimately lead to more danger than she could ever be prepared for?
First things first, Audrey is a lunatic. I mean, I don’t think she’s actually meant to be, but from the very first time she meets her captors she starts checking them out and being physically attracted to them. Yes, Stockholm Syndrome is a thing, but this is way too fast. It gave the story very little credibility.
Having said that, the rest of the story was pretty good. Very eventful and exciting. The baddies were genuinely scary and the ‘goodies’ were amusing and likeable (once you get past the fact that they kidnapped someone). It’s more a romance than a thriller (including sex-scenes, which I was not expecting) but that was kind of okay in the end. I usually do not like reading the sex stuff (yes, yes, I am a bit of a prude) but in Abduction it actually wasn’t too bad. It wasn’t too gross or weird, and it didn’t go on too long. I mean, it was pretty explicit, but I was able to deal.
To sum up, the story is flawed and not believable by any stretch of the imagination, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
