Crime Lord's Captive (Crime Lord, #1)Crime Lord’s Captive by Mia Knight
My rating: 3,5 of 5 stars

Hmm…not sure how I feel about this story. I knew what I was getting into from the reviews I read but now that I’ve actually read the book I have mixed emotions about where the story is headed. I just feel like something is missing. Like I couldn’t connect with the main characters enough. Maybe it’s because of the plot, since there wasn’t much time that the couple was together willingly, especially Lyla. I like the start of the book, kinda like the middle but don’t like the ending. Just felt too rushed and left me feeling cold and disappointed. Gavin really f*** up. He did so before but this time I don’t think the second book can redeem him in my eyes. Had a guy done that to me, man, he’d be dead to me for good! I’m not going to give away any spoilers, since this is such a short story. So if you want to read it, go ahead but be warned that this is not a book for the faint hearted. That being said, I think the second book might be better…
