KIDNAPPED FOR CHRISTMAS is a treat as sweet as gingerbread cookies at Christmas. Don't expect anything profound or deep. This is a tale of undeniable chemistry and self-discovery as two perfect matches find their round-about way to each other.

Jillian looks identical to her sister, Sabrina, who is a year younger and much flightier. In typical impulsive fashion, Sabrina has bought and paid for a BDSM kidnapping fantasy for herself, contrary to Jillian's warnings of concern. Then she sails off to Key West with her new boyfriend, leaving Jillian to care for the cat and her apartment.

Walking out of Sabrina's apartment, Jillian is mistaken for her sister, gagged, blindfolded and taken to the BDSM dungeon to live out Sabrina's fantasy. Unable to explain through the gag, Jillian ends up finding herself curious and turned on by not only the BDSM but the enigma mastering her body. When the gag does come off, she not only doesn't know the safe word to stop the fantasy, she is unwilling to call it quits before her curiosity is satisfied.

Kyle reluctantly agreed to stand in for the first time for his brother who owns the new kidnapping company, only because he finds the client exactly to his taste. As the fantasy plays out, Kyle has a difficult time abiding by the rules of the company. His attraction to Jillian and her responsiveness to him is just too powerful.

I enjoyed Jillian's journey of self-discovery and found myself wincing each time the poor girl was pushed farther, thanks to her sister's fantasy request. It was quick, tantalizing and cute (if you can describe BDSM as cute). The whole thing was just a naughty little holiday break that will leave you twitching in your airline seat on the way home for the holidays. Enjoy!

Ho-hum phony kidnapping fantasy.

Either Sabrina's kidnap fantasy involved being kidnapped by her best friend or Kyle just didn't have it in him to be a "tough guy." He's about as scary as Santa Claus. Sabrina is excited by the "danger and certainty ... suddenly you're grabbed by this huge, menacing man...
Either Sabrina's kidnap fantasy involved being kidnapped by her best friend or Kyle just didn't have it in him to be a "tough guy." He's about as scary as Santa Claus. Sabrina is excited by the "danger and certainty ... suddenly you're grabbed by this huge, menacing man, blindfolded, handcuffed, and shoved into a van ... where they take you back to their lair and do ..." whatever you've told them to do on the application. Kyle doesn't even keep up the pretence of being a kidnapper. He's very polite and friendly and solicitous and makes constant reference to the preplanned fantasy. Now it's time for step 1 of your fantasy. Okay, that's done, now on to step 2 of your fantasy. Okay, that's done, now onto the next thing on the list. Kyle acts like he's on a date with a stranger he picked up in a bar rather than conducting a kidnapping. If you're looking for a very tame, fluff Dom/sub story that is more of a Harlequin-type romance story than a BDSM story, then you will probably enjoy this easy to read book with two easy to like main characters.

    Excuse me while I pass out on the floor now.

    See, I used to consume BDSM erotic romances like they were candy. Then they all got really samey for me. They all included a billionaire, and they all tried to mimic the formula of 50 Shades of Grey or they tried to pull the whole 'rule breaker' theme that brats were cool. Because everyone suddenly wants to be spanked, they just don't want the discipline that goes along with said spanking. They basically don't want to lose control.

    I'm down with fun in BDSM, for example I LOVED this book! It was unique and original, and holy of holies I WISH there was a We Kidnap U around my area, but I know realistically, this 'business' would never exist! I don't care. Evangeline managed to find the perfect mix of legit BDSM elements with a character that was coming into her own realizing she was getting of on this experience.

    If you are into BDSM reads I HIGHLY recommend this! It was panty melting hot!
