Or so she thinks. Nox Taylor is far too high up in his field to be assigned a babysitting job. There’s nothing more he wants than to complete his mission so he can be rid of the smartass tomboy, Lily. Day after day, Nox watches Lily and her strange ways. She’s unlike any woman he’s ever met. Getting close to the girl is purely for her own protection…right? Lily never imagined she’d make her first real friends in captivity. What lengths would she go through to keep them? (Author note: This is NOT a dark romance.)

We reach the diner looking like a newlywed couple. Smiles, hugs, and happy. No one would guess we’re sweaty, hot, and tired. When I try to sit at the booth, I almost get whiplash when Nox pulls me into the same side as him. Close. The waitress comes over wearing a knowing smile. Before she gets to us, I pinch his thigh and hiss through a fake smile, “Would you stop doing that?”
He places his lips at the shell of my ear and whispers, “You keep pinching me and I might just pinch you somewhere you don’t want to be pinched, baby.”
That certainly shut me up.
Willing Captive is an amazing story of survival and adapting. Belle Aurora created a page turning story and characters you will love in this 4.5 star read!
We start out meeting the Flynn family. They appear to be the all american self-made successful family. We quickly learn that the father of the family is beyond overprotective when it comes to his two daughters. Right away a million questions ran through my mind regarding how and why would he possibly keep such a tight leash on two young twenty something women.
Delilah “Lily” Flynn is the youngest of the two girls. She is timid and loving but she carries a tremendous amount of spunk! I LOVED Lily, she was easy to connect with and made me laugh over and over.
Nox…. oh my gawd NOX!!! He is the super moody leader of the crew hired to protect Lily. Nox keeps to himself but when it comes to Lily he finds himself drawn to her over and over. Nox is the perfect alpha male package and I know you will love him too.
Nox and Lily’s connection is slow building. In the beginning they butt heads and Lily hates Nox for his rules and protecting ways. As the book progresses we are pulled into their connection and embrace the electric spark that these two are resisting.
Laying my head down with a sign, I waited.
Patiently, I waited some more until I finally felt it. The bed depressed, and Nox slid in beside me.
Turning to me, his arm wrapped around my hips, and he pulled me back into his body.
Not a single word was spoken.
And that was okay.
We didn’t need ‘em.
The banter amongst the characters is priceless! I loved each and every character! Belle truly had me on the edge of my seat as secrets were revealed and trust was broken. I can’t wait to read more books by Belle Aurora, she is definitely an author we should all have on our radar.

Humorous romance novels. Kristen Ashley and R.L. Mathewson had opened a brand new world where she could lose herself yet feel safe and at home in their stories. Belle has been known to become a screeching banshee while anxiously awaiting their newest titles. Belle never thought she would write. It had never interested her until recently. Friend-Zoned began to form and in February this year Belle typed the words Chapter One. And she fell in love. With words. With writing. With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored.
