When small town girl Melinda Prescott is taken hostage by three hot bank robbers, she quickly discovers that a life of bank heists, luxury hotels, and kinky menages is way more exciting than working on the family farm. She should be scared of her dominating, fierce captors…but there’s something wicked inside her that’s craving to obey their every dark desire. Melinda eagerly throws in with her three smoldering fugitives…and soon realizes that these are no ordinary bank robbers—and that bad guys aren’t always who they seem. But will her delicious captors overcome their own demons enough to let her in? And can these underdogs fight an evil conspiracy that’s larger than all of them? Warning: This book contains a sexy bank-robbers-and-their-captive sandwich, light bondage, spanking, teasing hints of domination, and a little play-time in a hot tub. Oh, and some all-too-delicious alpha heroes who bend the heroine to their will.
I got this book for free on Kindle and I needed a quick read, so I grabbed it this weekend.  It started as a fun read and then tried to get serious. I wasn't aware that is was a series when I got it.

I'm sure to some this book would be interesting and there certainly were a few moments that pulled you in a made you really want to know what was going on, but then some inconsistencies would happen and back to being lost you go.  Overall though the book was kinda scattered an when I finished I also felt scattered like wait, so what just happened??

Was it supposed to be a fun fluffy erotica?? Because that's how it originally started, then it got serious and I wanted more from it and it just didn't deliver.  I was so lost the sex at times was good and at others I was like "meh", when she would get pulled out of the scene so would I and then I just never felt like it got hot enough to get back into it.  I don't know I just wasn't really feeling it.

I didn't get much from the other characters, we only got glimpses of who they were and it wasn't enough to really feel connected to them or their story.  The scenario seemed a bit far fetched like there are way better ways in which to seek freedom and I don't buy that you are this connected and you still don't know their real names, Nah bruh.

It had it's moments and it was fun while reading, if you can ignore the silly/crazy/slow moments that don't really fit.  In the end kinda forgettable.
Happy Reading
