Blurb:

Dear Captor,You’ve stolen me.
You’ve spilled my blood.
You’ve brought me pain.
But what you’re yet to realize… I’m a fighter.
I’ve been broken before.
I’ve even at one point lost the will to live.
So now you know… this information I gift to you.
I’m ready for you, so do your worst.

Sincerely,

Elenore

Dear Captor – Review

Oh. My. God. What?!

Ok, the other books in the series need to come right this second. I need them! 

I can’t say too much in this review because it would turn into spoilers. BUT. This book is extremely well written. The plot (so far) flows so smoothly and I was in for a wild ride. It’s definitely a suspenseful-thriller type of read. Of course, it has dark undertones – which is something I love in books. At various points, I had all the feels for this book.

Lovelock instantly hooked me into Elenore’s story and in turn, I was devastated/intrigued at the events. I enjoyed seeing the different characters surrounding Elenore and I cannot wait to see what happens next! Especially the captor. Hmm. Dark, mysterious, and just the right amount of evil.

I have a feeling this series will keep me addicted.

– I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced reader copy.

Excerpt

 

Prologue
What’s in a
name?
Usually,
parents name their children with a special kind of love in their hearts. Not
mine though. They didn’t want me, or at least, that’s what they kept telling
me. They only ever wanted to inflict pain. I was nobody until the woman next
door gave me the lovely name Elenore. She cared for me when my own parents
didn’t or wouldn’t.
Every
single day I wished to be taken away from what I endured. Anywhere would have
been good. I would have sold my soul to the devil himself back then, and I’d
willingly do it now. Give my living essence to breathe, to live on. My entire
childhood was a survival story, and now I have another.
So much
blood. Everywhere I look, there are dark pools of solidified blood stuck to the
walls, the floor—my entire cell is covered. The girls who came before me are no
more. Their stories are over. It was gruesome, the stuff of your nightmares.
Not me,
though—he kept me.
One letter
changed my destiny of certain death. It was never in me to give up easily. I’ve
always been a fighter. He never saw me coming, and he never knew my strength.
He was not what I expected either.
His
strength.
His
calmness.
Or his
kindness.
He was my
captor . . .
