I actually ended up liking this sequel more than the first book. I’m not sure I could tell you why though. The premise for this duology is really interesting and I felt like it was a fresh and new story.  THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS FROM BOOK ONE Now that Jospin has sacrifice himself for Raven he is lost and somewhat broken. He has lost his home, his family, his best friend, and even the woman he loves. However, her life is in even more danger. Clovis let Jospin take the fall so that they would not all be killed. In order to do this, he had to claim Raven as his own and bring her back to the compound with him. Now she is directly in the crosshairs of Jospin’s ruthless father, trying to convince him that she is not a threat and keep herself somewhat valuable so that they do not kill her, all while she tries to find evidence that will bring him down.  Jospin and Raven have actually switched places, as he goes to the habitat for help. There is another spy there and he is determined to find out who it is, as well as search for evidence collected by Raven’s father to take down his family and their poaching empire.  Jospin melted my heart in this books. He was definitely attractive in the first book and I loved his sexy, brooding, alpha personality. However, in this sequel, he wears his love for Raven on his sleeve. She is all h wants and all he thinks about. Honestly, as a couple their characters are well matched. But, her stubbornness to finish her father’s mission also breaks his heart a little because all he wants to do is keep her safe. It doesn’t help that he knows her safety is in the hands of the best friend who betrayed him, no matter how noble his intentions were.  Clovis is a really great character. Instead of the writer making him the typical corner of a love triangle, she expounded on his loyalty and not once did Clovis overstep his bounds with Raven. I loved that he didn’t allow himself to think of Raven as anything but a friend because of his love for Jospin. The author developed the plot and characters well, the construction and depth made the story flow. There are a few gruesome spots but, I suppose they fit the story and give you a better sense of just how much danger they are all in. I feel like the author has definitely done her research because the setting of the rainforest is well crafted and believable. There is a lot of action and it’s pretty well paced, although there were times when I would have liked it to move forward just a little faster.  For me, there was a missing element and it’s hard to say this because I can’t quite put my finger on it. Which I imagine may be frustrating for the author. I enjoyed the book a lot, but I wasn’t gripped by it, turning every page because I can’t stand not knowing what comes next. Raven’s visit home was a little abrupt, it felt like it was just tossed in there, almost like the author had forgotten to close up that storyline and went back and quickly inserted a scene.  The epilogue is really cute a great way to end the book. I would have liked to have seen it go a little further into the future, however that is just my sappy side that always wants to see more of the happily ever after stuff. The book doesn’t need it, it in no way takes away from it, I just would have liked it.  Overall, really great read.

3.75 stars--CAPTURED BY YOU is the second installment in Amber Hart’s new adult, contemporary Untamed romance duology focusing on twenty year old American college student Raven Moore, and twenty one year old Cameroon native and heir to a poaching dynasty Jospin Tondjii. CAPTURED BY YOU should not be read as a stand alone as it is the continuation of a storyline that started in book one UNTIL YOU FIND ME in which Raven hunts for the people who murdered her father. CAPTURED BY YOU begins immediately after the events of book one. Told from dual points of view (Raven and Jospin) CAPTURED BY YOU finds Raven Moore a virtual prisoner at the hands of Jospin’s father Jean Tondjii. To protect Raven and his friend Clovis, Jospin took the fall for his friend’s perceived betrayal, and in this Jospin is thrown from the family home-never to return-should he be killed and the woman he loves destroyed. What ensues is Clovis and Raven’s determination to find incriminating evidence about the gorilla poachers, and Jospin’s befriending of the very people hoping to destroy his father’s life work. CAPTURED BY YOU is a story of romance and love; action and suspense; power, hatred and greed. The sexual chemistry between Jospin and Raven is provocative and alluring. The $ex scenes are intimate and romantic. The series also focuses on the poaching of gorillas and endangered species in the jungles of Cameroon, and how with the hope of those trying to stop the poaching, there is the potential for these animals to flourish and grow. Amber Hart also offers up another side to the illegal poaching-that of the mind set of Jospin Tondjii and how he must grow to understand the potential ramifications of poaching and how it affects everyone it touches. Jospin grew up in a society that depended upon the hunt-the money, the profit, the guns and ammunition. This was the only life our hero had ever known as we read his thoughts and memories about the killings of endangered species. To the poacher, money is the bottom line and in this there is no thought to the thousands of species that face extinction every year. CAPTURED BY YOU is an intense storyline about two people fighting the odds and fighting some of the most dangerous people in the world. I have to question some of the believability especially that of a young white woman capable of taking down an entire poaching empire, but in the grand scheme of story telling, CAPTURED BY YOU is just that-a romance story with a happily ever after-wherein the good guy wins and the bad guy gets his due.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. To read more reviews like this one, check out Obsessive Book Nerd! I was so excited to read this book, that its wasn’t until about 15% through that I realized I was completely bored. The book started off so slow. Jospin and Raven had been separated, so there were no sense between the two of them, and them doing their own things were not very exciting. But I’m happy to say that before I reached the halfway mark things really started to pick up. Staying on track with book one, there were some very touching and emotional moments. There was a moment in particular between Jospin and Raven’s gorilla Lechien that felt so raw and real. This was the moment when Jospin realized that gorilla’s were a lot like people when Lechien recognized Raven from one of her paintings. He couldn’t fathom the connection that humans and gorillas have. It was a very touching moment.  I liked that Clovis become much more of a staple in book two. He was Raven’s protector through most of the story. I really liked that he and Raven created a strong bond and because of their bond, Jospin was forced to talk Clovis help.  I’m happy with the ending of Jospin and Raven’s story. Until You Find Me will still be one of my favorite books, but Captured By You did a great job finishing their story. The book was emotional, full of passion, suspenseful and extremely meaningful. Thank you Amber Hart for writing such a wonderful series that really sheds light on what really goes on in the Jungle. I’ve never been a huge fan of gorillas, but these books have won me over.
