Madeleine, Abducted by M.S. Willis-Review/Giveaway

Book Description:
She was meant to be his destruction…
A pawn played in a perilous game between
father and son…
Yet, her strength was more than either
man could imagine.
As Maddy learns to save herself…
She becomes the one thing that could
set the son free.

Madeleine Clark was raised to become a concert cellist. Sheltered and naïve, she remains hidden behind her music, a protection from the world around her. On the night of her first solo performance, Maddy accepts the admiration of a stranger and finds herself captive in a cruel and twisted power struggle between a sadistic father and his son, Aaron.

Seemingly, dangerous and uncaring, Aaron manages the business operations of his father’s estate. Wanting nothing to do with the slaves kept at the Estate, Aaron refuses to take part in the deeper depravities of his father. Despite his resistance, Aaron’s father ‘gifts’ him with a petite, brunette woman he can’t refuse.

A bond forged in conspiracy and deceit, Aaron struggles to save Maddy by teaching her to survive in the world in which he’d been raised. An unlikely union, Aaron soon learns that great strengths can exist within small packages, while Madeleine learns that love and light can exist in the darkest of places.

My Review
I have read many books in the last year. I've read romance, paranormal, fantasy, general smut, and some mysteries. I can honestly say that I have not read a book like Madeleine, Abducted and that is a good thing. When I first started this book, I read the warnings and I knew I was getting into something that wouldn't be hearts and flowers or lots of fun sex. I did not, however, expect to get a book that would challenge me. I fell in love with Maddy from the beginning. She is a shy musician who wants to stay out of the limelight and just play her music. When she is kidnapped she is thrust into a world that will only hurt her. She becomes a slave to Aaron, but he doesn't want to fall into his father's trap. He trains Maddy to survive in the world she has no choice but to live in.

There is an element of a historical novel to this book in that the operations of The Estate are very old fashioned, like old England. There is sex and debauchery. The men are involved in all sorts of illegal activities and their leader is crazy mixed with drugs and is drunk on his power. He likes to manipulate everyone around him, including his son. 

This is not a happy story. If you are looking for girl meets boy and they fall in love you will be disappointed. If you like a story with intrigue that will keep you guessing then this is the book for you. It is a wild ride that you can't get off of no matter how hard you try! 4.5 out of 5!
