Overview

Emmie had spent her life pampered, sheltered, and mostly unaware of just how bad things were inside and outside of the city that she called home - but when reality comes knocking, Emmie must choose between staying and suffering, or running and breaking a promise that could break her heart.

After fleeing the city in the dead of night, Emmie expected the hazards of the forest, but she never thought she would run into real danger or be brutally taken by one of the raiders who had been banished outside the walls. She never thought she would be tied up and forced to submit to their rules, and she never planned to find herself kneeling before their leader - no matter how gorgeous he was.

Lucian had spent most of his adult life figuring out how to protect those banished by the corrupt men inside the city, but when he meets Emmie, he doesn't just want to keep her safe, he wants to claim her - body and soul. But once he does, and she despises him for it, how can he possibly show her what life can be like when she's really and truly free, and how can he show her that a good life might be possible with him?

In 'Taken by the Enemy' readers are taken on a dark journey of discovery where the truths that Emmie has held close since she was a child are turned inside out, and she discovers that the enemy she's been raised to fear may just be her salvation. Will she be able to bend to Lucian's demands for obedience, and the harsh ways in which he enforces them, so she can discover a world where real peace is possible? Or will she turn away from the people who can save them all just to protect her heart?

Meet the Author

Jennifer Bene is a best-selling author of erotic fiction. Her writing has been described by readers as "dark in a way that turns you on", and she definitely takes that as a compliment! She has a terrible mouth that often gets her in trouble but comes in handy when she's writing. She loves to write strong female characters and dominant male characters in stories that take readers for a walk on the dark side.

When she's not attached to a keyboard, she likes to read, drink wine, do yoga, binge on Netflix, and enjoy life with friends/family. She lives in Texas, and no, she doesn't own a horse or wear a cowboy hat, you'd have better luck finding her on the dance floor downtown. Seriously.

This book does contain explicit sexual content and violence and is not for the easily offended. Emmie leaves her sheltered life by escaping into the woods that surround her walled city to avoid a arranged marriage. She quickly finds herself in trouble in the woods only to found by a group of people that have been exiled from the city. People she has been taught her life to fear. Lucian quickly reinforces those fears when his group saves her from a Boar attack and takes her to their remote village. Emmie's pride and stubborn ways soon have her butting heads with nearly everyone, especially Lucian who has decided to make her his own using whatever means he has to in order to get her under control. The book is very well written and although contains explicit sex scenes and violence was a enjoyable read. So much so that I had to read it one day as I was so hooked on what was going to happen next. There are many well developed characters that add to the story. A highly recommended dark erotic book.

The story is a bit brutal and the punishments are abusive. Definitely not for the faint of heart. Emmie runs away to avoid an arranged marriage to a terrible man. She is saved by the leader of the exiled, who spanks her, rapes her, and then kidnaps her to his secret village. She slowly falls in love with Lucian despite not being able to reconcile the villain in him with the hero.

I found this book to be very well written. It is definitely not one for someone that is faint of heart because there are many situations in which the main character, Emmie, faces violence towards her that is not consensual. I loved the interactions between Emmie and Lucien as they are both strong and smart but willing to compromise with each other when needed. I found this book to be very thought provoking and full of interesting characters and situations and would recommend it. This is also the first time that I have discovered this author – but will not be the last.

This is fairly fast paced and a bit brutal. Even though Emeline appeared to come from a privileged background in reality it was a harsh existence. Emetine found it difficult to control her temper which made it difficult to avoid punishment/discipline for disrespecting the senior members of the group outlaws. She redeemed herself in the end and won the trust and gratitude of the group.
