Will Franny choose to live or just to survive?
Hardship, pain, and strife describes life on Utopia, a mining colony far from Earth. Women are a rare commodity. When an alien trade ship arrives with a cargo containing a human woman, every man on Utopia shows up to bid. Three friends pool their funds in the hope they'll have a human woman in their beds to keep them warm on the long nights of the coming harsh winter.
Francesca Dehart suffered the terror of aliens abducting her from a country road. The horror of being kidnapped and then sold as a sex slave is beyond anything Franny has ever imagined. With no hope of being rescued she finds herself with a new definition of hell--Utopia.
Can Cade, Nebraska, and Dawson show Franny her new life is more than a prison? They need her, but will she stay with them or run at the first opportunity? Can they hold onto the woman they've grown to love and protect her from the others who will stop at nothing to have her?

I received an ARC of Captivated as part of the author's book tour, and agreed to provide an honest review. Captivated hooked me right away because I really love erotic science fiction. There's not nearly enough of it, especially well done stories with solid writing. I enjoyed Franny's tale a great deal. The heroine was very sympathetic and likeable. Each of the male romantic interests had a distinctive and intriguing personality. An abandoned mining colony made for a really interesting setting, and the harsh planetary climate assumed the qualities of a secondary character as the story progressed. I enjoyed the romantic dynamic between Franny and the three men who purchase her--Cade, Nebraska and Dawson. All three men are rough, clearly a product of their environment, but decent guys underneath their hardened exteriors. Fanny develops a nuanced relationship with each one of the guys, however, I really wanted more depth. It is difficult to establish a real connection with one hero in just a hundred pages, let alone three, so there were places where I was left wanting. The sex scenes are hot, but the cover and blurb left me expecting menage but the story didn't really deliver to the extreme end of kink. Captivated is a great, fast read for those interested in erotic science fiction between multiple partners. The story delivers a fabulous romance with a happily ever after ending for everyone.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review I am personally a huge fan of Ashlynn's and couldn't wait to read this story. I love her take on scifi and this didn't disappoint. Franny is kidnapped and taken to a dark and harsh planet where she's sold, luckily, to our three heroes. The chemistry build up is wholly believable (we don't simply jump into erotic content immediately which I appreciated for the circumstances.) I loved watching the get to know you portion of their relationship, then OF COURSE loved the fun times that followed. There's a strong story behind the love story. I love the world building for the story--dark with a George RR Martin feel to it. Highly recommended read!
