Secret aspiring comedian Autumn Reynolds is a girl gone...not wild exactly. More like lazy. Since her boyfriend abandoned her in New York City for a bunch of improv groupies she's had two priorities; sucking the nitrous out of whipped cream cans and making sex comics about her mysterious landlord. Blake hates people-and sunlight-with good reason. Imagine his surprise when he finds himself lusting after his upstairs tenant, a sunny, Australian people pleaser down on her…

This book shows that a story about getting dark, scary capture fantasies fulfilled doesn’t actually have to be dark and scary. “Captivated” is a fluffy, sunshine-warm snuggle-blanket of a story, a beauty-and-the-beast treat that is at once hilarious and sexy and fucking deep. Autumn is an Australian ray of sunshine who wants to do stand-up comedy, while Blake is a hulking beast of a man who detests sunshine, people, and the outside. They couldn’t be more different, and yet they find out that they both gravitate towards the same dark fantasies — about each other, no less — through a hilarious accident. The meet-by-embarrassing-fuck-up alone makes this one of my favorite romances ever.

THOUGHTS ABOUT THE CHARACTERS

I can’t help but picture Autumn as Emilie deRavin. She’s blonde, smol, Australian, and she’s the sunshine drawing Blake out of his self-imposed isolation. She’s goodness and warmth and has the snarkiest voice. I just love her.

Blake is silent, and very aware of his size and perma-scowl. He’s perceptive as fuck, with some giant blind spots that lead to delicious fuck-ups and angst. Holy shit, this book is so good, I can’t stand it!

FAVORITE QUOTE

“She’d looked across the candlelit dining table and seen the bookend to her own desires simmering in those incredible light brown eyes. Blake was excited by this as much as she was, and maybe he was afraid of it, too. Afraid of what it said about him as a man.”

CONTENT WARNINGS

Blake and Autumn share a capture fantasy kink and embark on exploring it together. Despite the dark nature of their games, there’s never a moment where their play veers into actual non- consent territory. This is so brilliantly done. I want to print out this story and roll around in it and soak up the fluffy, sweet darkness through osmosis. The kinks/fetishes in this book are stalking, degrading language, capture, restraining.

Cover of Act Your Age by Eve Dangerfield
All Kate 'Middleton' McGrath wants is a man to call 'Daddy' in bed. But kinks aren't for everyone. She gets it. They're definitely not going to be for her grumpaholic boss, Mr Henderson. But a girl can dream can't she? Especially when he's always being so goddamn stern with her. Tyler Henderson is a golden boy who's lost his shine. He's old, his dream career is over, his fiancée left him. Now all the former…

Why I loved this book: Wonderful writing and lovely, deliciously twisted kink. Plus, roller derby. The characters are layered and real; Ty a grumpy curmudgeon who tries to do the right thing, and Kate the quirky ray of sunshine with ADHD (hello, sister) who wants to befriend his penis. And the rest of him, of course. This books delivers the whole bandwidth of emotions, and Eve Dangerfield is an auto-buy author for me.

Content Warnings:  grooming (not by the hero), attempted date rape/drugging (not by the hero).
