Review: Captivated by Brittany Cournoyer (Out of Darkness #1)


Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via LesCourt ARC Team.

Brittany Cournoyer was a new-to-me author going into this Out of Darkness series starter, and Captivated was indeed one heck of an introduction to her writing. For the record, the romance in this novel is hinted at more than anything else, so if you're someone who prefers having high level of romance in their books, then this may not be for you. HOWEVER, if you're a reader who loves stories that keep you on your toes and appreciate good writing and their books to have mystery and suspense, then give this book a whirl because it had that and then some.

I was certainly impressed with the author's writing, having shown her ability to weave the sort of story that had me captivated--pun intended!--from start to finish. Ethan was a fascinating main character, as was the highly mysterious but ultimately very creepy "The Suitor". Another character who grabbed my attention was X, a fellow model but Ethan's rival and someone who, surprisingly, becomes a source of support as the whole stalker angle plays out.

This IS a continuing series, so the romance is supposed to develop as the series goes forward, and I'm curious to see how the recurring characters will develop alongside that as well. Captivated gets 4.5 stars. ♥
