Captivated by Him by Terri E. Laine

Genre: New Adult Romance

Publishing Date: December 5th, 2017



Fate plays matchmaker with my heart by repeatedly putting Gavin Volk in my path. Our mutually insane attraction is instant, captivating me from the first time we meet.

The wickedly gorgeous guy knows how to set my body on fire with just one look.

And he’s there for me like no guy has been before.

Only, he says he’s not boyfriend material, not good enough for me. But he won’t give me

a reason why.  

If rumors at our college are to be believed, he’s dangerous, connected to the mob. I know he would never hurt me physically, but mentally he’s shielded by secrets he doesn’t trust me enough to share.

Yet, every time he kisses me, I feel it deep down in my soul.

Just when I think I’ve broken down his barriers, he builds a fortress between us again.

Though I want him.

And I know he wants me.

His secrets keep me far from his heart.

I should walk away with my pride intact.

I can’t keep allowing him in my life only to be shattered when he walks away.

Either he proves his love by trusting me or he needs to let me go for good.

However, my greatest fear is that if he tells me what he’s hiding, will I be strong enough to stay?

~ 4 My Forever and Always Stars ~

Hmmmm…..I don’t know how to really review this book. My mind is all over the place after reading this story.

I guess this review is going to be more about my feelings while reading the book and not so much about the storyline. Because like with Because Of Him, I can’t say much about the story without it being spoilers.

I have to say I enjoyed this book, but I think I liked Because Of Him more. This book had a little too much angst for my taste. So if you are a lover of angst filled romance stories then this is a book you shouldn’t pass up.

After reading Because Of Him, I was so looking forward to reading Gavin and Megan’s story. There were so many unanswered questions from that book. Captivated By Him answered all of those questions and more. This book does run concurrent with the timeline of Because Of Him, but it is a standalone novel. You don’t have to read Because Of Him first. I would recommend that you do because then you will understand Gavin’s character a little better, plus things that are unraveled in this story will make more sense.

Captivated By Him gave us everything the first book gave us. This story was filled with suspense, lies, betrayals, and romance. And yes some sexy times. I will say that this book took me by surprise as to where the story went. I wasn’t expecting some of the things that happened to happen. But then that’s what makes a great story….right?? This story is told in Dual POV and is a complete story. There is NO Cliffhanger.

All I can really say is if you are a fan of the New Adult Genre, and an angst filled romance then I think you should give this book a try. If you are a fan of Terri’s books you don’t want to miss this latest GEM from her!!!!
