Brenda Rothert does a great job in this book of showing two people who are grieving different losses and how they are trying to continue on in their lives. What happened to both of them was sad, however, Kate seemed to have a much harder time learning to try to live and move forward with her life. She was a little too over the top for me at some points and, though I felt sympathetic, I felt she needed to quit having a pity party and fight for happiness in her life. For a psych major, she lacked some basic coping skills and that had me frustrated more than a couple of times.

5 Heart Checking Stars!!
TITLE~ Captive (Fire on Ice #2)
AUTHOR~ Brenda Rothert
GENRE~ NA Romance/Sports
PUBLISHER/DATE PUB.~ January 27th 2014
COST/PURCHASED~ Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review
MY RATING~ 5/5
MY THOUGHTS~ I chose this book because I loved the first one in this series -Bound.
This second installment was a beautiful continuation of Ryke and Kate's story. The story held me CAPTIVE from the very first page. It was very well written. I did find some things somewhat predictable, however, this did not take away from my enjoyment. I was blown away by the first major event in the story though! The author definitely snuck that one in on me.
Overall, this book was well written and the story was wonderful. It reaches out and captures your heart in the beginning and doesn't let go until the very end.
I will most definitely be grabbing the 3rd book the minute it becomes available!!

Love the way kate and ryke are so in love. They go through the storm like normal people but always found a way to make it together. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Gritty, honest, fresh. Ms. Rothert knows how to put together a real story about real people. Captive will pull you in, make you cry and leave you satisfied yet wanting more. I can not wait to dig into Luke's book in Edge (Fire on Ice).Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I loved being back with Kate & Ryke. It was really intriguing to see what happened after their happily ever after. This instalment was much more emotional than the first. Rothert combines the hot & steamy that we’ve come to know and love her for along with heartbreak and intense emotions. There was a lot more sweet infused among the spice in this one. Her vivid descriptions bring everything to life in an exquisite way.
I quite enjoyed the way that we got to know Kate and Ryke better in this one. They grow as individuals and as a couple. I must say, however, that Kate got on my nerves more than once. I loved seeing more of Luke as well. Rothert really takes the time to develop her supporting cast in this one. It gives a greater depth to the story as a whole.
As a whole, this was a well written, emotional tale that held my heart. It was a quick, enjoyable read that followed up from the first in the series quite nicely. I’d definitely recommend it to others and I definitely can’t wait to read Luke’s story in the 3rd story.
Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.
