Bailey Jones is a survivor of a serial killer. Everyone
keeps telling her that though she is sure there was another
woman there in that cabin, no one can find any signs of
her. They keep saying she must have imagined her, but
Bailey isn't crazy, she knows she helped someone escape the
killer and she wants to find her. She wants to know the
truth about the other woman who was TAKEN as she was. Did
she survive too?
Asher Young is a LOST (Last Option Search Team) agent and
the moment he sees Bailey he is ready to rescue her from
her nightmares. But Ash has his own demons that are
swirling within him, a past that has led him from his past
with the SEALs and now to this job. He is determined to
help her find out the truth, he trusts her as he has no one
in a long time. Is it possible for these two lost souls to
find peace with one another or will their emotions distract
them long enough for a killer to finish the job?
TAKEN is book #5 of author Cynthia Eden's heart stopping
series. I know it has been said many times that a book
is hard to put down or the reader didn't want it to end but
with this book it is all true! I immediately felt for
Bailey and Asher and couldn't wait to see where this couple
went next. They are both damaged but slowly as they worked
together you get the thrill of seeing them heal and learn
to love. The build up of the romance between them,
especially the steamy moments, was done perfectly with just
the right amount of tension.
The secondary characters are realistic, adding a lot to the
dramatic vibe and tension of this whole story line. There
is so much happening in this book, with so many characters
and things coming up almost out of nowhere, that it is
only Ms. Eden's extraordinary writing talent that keeps it
all melding smoothly. I do have to admit that I guessed
that there was more to the mysterious woman than Bailey
guessed but still ... the killer surprised me. If you like
your mystery a little on the darker side, with strong alpha
men bent on righting a wrong, a heroine who is learning
that she is no longer a victim, and the perfectly blended
moments of romance and love then TAKEN has got to be in
