I didn't care for it over all. I can handle the BDSM but I thought some of the foul language was uncalled for. Plus, I felt the story was a little to drawn out for me.

I can't say enough about this series. I love that Kennedy incorporates strong female/submissive characters. Kennedy has suspense, drama, kink and passion and grabs you from the first page! I instantly loved Connor. Kennedy is a gifted story teller who left me wanting more. This is a must read, guaranteed not to disappoint.

I was gifted this book not knowing what it was about. Well I am glad it was gifted to me. I really like the book. I was intrigued. The beginning had a great start to get you caught up to keep reading. It started out as a murder investigation that led to the BDSM world. An ex-military man, Conner, is caught up in this world but is also an investigator for the murder case that is linked to this world. Lauren is a vendor that supplies "toys" adorned with jewels for the clubs and doesn't even realize that she is a target until she meets Conner. There is a connection between the two. They hit it off but Lauren tells Conner she wants to keep it casual. At the time he doesn't know that she had tried to be a part of that work at one time. She starts to feel more for him and gives him an ultimatum, scene with her or it is over. Conner has a trust issue that goes way back and does not want their casual thing to go any further until Lauren is in danger and can't stop thinking about her. I was not expecting the murder plot to turn out the way it did nor was I expecting Conner and Lauren's story to end the way it did. I guess you will just have to read it to see how it all comes out.

Kennedy Layne has knocked it out of the park with the first book of her CSA CASE FILES SERIES, CAPTURED INNOCENCE! Ms. Layne's amazing talent is apparent at the start. You are not just a reader...all of a sudden, you are ONE of the gang. I felt like Conner and Lauren and the rest of these awesome (I hate to call them this...characters) were MY friends. Not too many authors are able to do this. I LOVE when, as a reader, I am pulled into the book. With beautifully developed characters and a captivating plot from the very beginning, you will easily be enthralled. There is conflict, suspense, humor, inner demons, romance, and of course...HAWT military men (fanning face). What more could anyone want? My suggestion? Get your copy NOW! I promise that you will NOT be disappointed and that YOU too will be a Kennedy Layne fan!

When former Marine, Connor Ortega, was ordered into the offices of Crest Security Agency on a Saturday morning, he didn’t expect the latest case to hit so close to home. A submissive has been murdered in a particularly vicious manner and to bring her killer to justice, he must go undercover. Not hard to do considering he’s already part of the BDSM lifestyle. Lauren Bailey, a local vendor of bejeweled erotic implements, lives vicariously through her clients due to her fear of bondage. When Connor’s dominant side can’t resist trying to ease her anxieties, she accepts his proposal and agrees to his one stipulation...keep things casual. When the killer sets his sights on Lauren, Connor is forced rethink their relationship. He has the training it takes to catch a murderer, but does he have the courage to escape his inner demons and capture Lauren’s heart? CSA Case Files... Crest Security Agency (CSA) is run by Gavin Crest, a retired Marine Master Sergeant. He has personally selected his own former military team members, both men and women, to configure a seamless Special Operations Capable (SOC) unit. Working together on investigations, domestically and abroad, each team member will find their niche in life and love. Follow along as Kennedy Layne conveys each of their stories as they work together on investigations that lead them down perilous paths of passion, intrigue and suspense.... The inaugural book in this series launches you into the fast paced world at Crest Security Agency. I thought this book was a fantastic and engaging read. It never lagged and the author pulled you in with her intricate and colorful descriptions of Connor’s post military life. He knows who he is, and he is intent on successfully completing his assignment. I loved Lauren Bailey. Shes smart, self aware, and independent. When these two meet, there is spark. But, Connor is on assignment and undercover. How can this ever work? And that is just the beginning. Kennedy Layne has pulled me in. I am hooked.

As posted on The Smutty Kitty reviewed by Knotty Kitty 5 out of 5 Licks There are some books that when you finish them, you just have to write the review, and this baby is certainly one of them. I am new to Kennedy’s work, but LAWD am I an instant fan with this book!! Those that know me well know I’m not a huge romantic suspense reader. But it’s an understatement to say I couldn’t put this book down for anything. Everything around me went on the back burner until I hit the end!! Every single one of the characters in this book just grabs a hold of you, and it isn’t just the main story line. This agency has so many great characters, that I have no doubt that each new book will be truly incredible. This series centers on the Crest Security Agency. An agency filled with former military men and women, most of them being Marines. As the sister of a Marine, I have a little bit of knowledge of the Marine Corps, and you can definitely tell that Kennedy cares about representing them correctly and getting her facts right. Having her own retired Marine might just help that along.. hehehe.. Connor Ortega is an amazingly complex dominant male. He is still reeling from his recent breakup, and is truly not expecting that this case he is currently working to bring him in contact with one woman who will truly shake up his world. Connor’s one of those characters that you just find yourself falling for, and wanting to slap him on the back of the head at the same time. He brings out all of these emotions when dealing with Lauren. I absolutely love when a writer has a submissive that has a strong back bone, and shows readers that just because a person is submissive it doesn’t mean they are “weak”. Lauren doesn’t give Connor and inch, and he has to be on his toes when dealing with her. Her submission doesn’t come easy to him. He has to not only work to get her to even give him a chance, but also to help her overcome an issue from the past that blocks her. I love books like this, the ones that make you sad to see them end. These characters literally had me tied down, and would not let go. I wanted to follow them long after their happily ever after. I guess that is the former soap opera fan in me. I’m excited to get my hands on the next installment of this series!! I hope y’all love this book as much as I have, because I honestly think it is a must read!!!

Stumbled upon this series and I am loving it. Mystery and romance all in one. Typically these types of books focus more on the mystery than the romance. This book has an equal balance of both. Lauren & Cameron keep me on my toes. With each passing page the story revealed more. The author did a great job with character development. Lauren and Cameron's road to happiness is rocky, but they make it. Excited to read the others in this series.

2.5 It was ok only. I liked connor for the most part but his reason for having females problems I had trouble buying into. I had problems with the female char. She was just so annoying with the whole hotheaded because she is a red head crap. And she just did stupid stuff that I wanted to smack her. I have know several redheads who had quite mild temperaments, writers so need to put that old wives tail AWAY! So tired of it! Some of the sex scenes were well done but by the end I was skimming because it started to be more of the same and boring. I'm not gonna read the rest of the series.

An exciting story about murder which brings a PI and erotic toy purveyor into contact. The setting is the BDSM club and life and the author provides an exciting introduction to this world. Vivid story compared to the vanilla "Fifty Shades of Grey."

This is the first Kennedy Layne book I've read, and it won't be my last. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. If it's anything like #1 I have some great reading ahead. Layne does a great job of infusing her characters with a huge dose of real -- real feelings, real vulnerabilities, real fears. Yes, there were times I wanted to scream at them, but isn't that true even of the people we love? I cannot wait to get started on Jax's story. Layne has me hooked from the long haul!

Captivating. Connor and Lauren are made for each other. Connor has abandonment issues and Lauren has phobia issues. When Crest Security is hired to buy a chief suspect in a murder investigation Connor and Jax are sent into the BDSM community in which they play to find their killer. Lauren is a vendor in the community who does specialize merchandise. As Connor talks for Lauren in regards to her merchandise, he take and interest in her. Then she is attacked and the big bad Dom appears. As the plot thickens and the twists and turns the case take, can their relationship turn from casual to more and how will either react if push comes to shove. Follow a long this story is totally worth it.
