Blair Rosewood is preparing for her first day at her new job. She left her trailer park town to go to college and make something of herself. Now she’s in Charleston, South Carolina surrounded by people with money and she’s going to have to keep up. She hasn’t exactly ended up where she wanted, but she’s going to make the best of it.
But one night everything changes. Suddenly she’s taken from all that she knows and is being held captive by a man who is beyond obsessed with her. He’s created a paradise for her with no escape, and he won’t allow an inch of space between them.
How can he know so much about her? How can he look at her like he owns her? How can his big hands hold her captive yet be so gentle? How can she resist?
Warning: She’s been captured by a beast who refuses to let go of what he wants. But this brooding alpha has secrets of his own, and he’ll do everything he can to protect her from them.
This novella is everything. EVERYTHING. Sheltered not only provides us with AR signature traits like an over the top alpha who falls hard for his love but it also gave us the drama that I crave in books.
The idea of a stalker/kidnapper should scare me but I promise you, my feelings for Ryker is anything but scared. Holy crap did I fall for him hard. All he wanted to do was protect Blair and give her everything she wants/desires.
So let me back up. Blair grew up in a troubled home and really didn’t have any friends or family. Once in college, she started dating someone who she had been with for the past 5 or 6 years. She’s recently moved to his hometown to work at one of his galleries and hoping to rekindle their relationship since it’s been flat for a while now. What she didn’t know was that once Rykler laid eyes on her, she was his and he was going to do everything he could to protect her.
What set Sheltered apart from other AR books for me what the added amount of drama and twists. I felt like we got a complete story that wasn’t just a quick hard fall romance. While I love and crave those from AR, these added elements really made Sheltered stand apart.
If you want a swoon worthy alpha who will do anything in the world to keep his love happy and safe, then you do not want to miss out on Sheltered. Ryker and Blair will steal your heart!
