Release (Captured #2)
I knew from the start that I should stay away from Dane, and I would have – if he’d stayed away from me. Astoundingly sexy with a consuming presence of unspoken command, he enthralls me to the point of almost being incapable of rational thoughts, almost being incapable of resisting him. My hands want to explore him. My tongue wants to taste him. My body begs to exp ...more
This story offers you so much in one. Fun, laughter, tears, romance and much more.
An amazing story of an intense and passionate love between two people however, they are both battling their own personal demons which causes some conflict within their relationship. As the story progresses and their personal struggles unravel, you cannot help but fall in love with each of them and feel endeared to them both. I found myself really rooting for them and their relationship from the beginning to end.

This is Dane and Brooklyn's story. Dane a character who appeared in the first book. Dane is a total womaniser though there's little evidence of that in this. He first meets Brooklyn when his sister Saffron talks him into going to a dance show, Brooklyn is one of the performers. She's in the US working, but is British. Dane is immediately attracted to Brooklyn, but she's connected to his sister via mutual friends and Saffron would be furious with him if h ...more
An absolute MUST READ!!! I highly recommend the first 2 books in this series! Can't wait for book 3.
This was emotional, deep, funny, and very sexy. I loved Dane and Brooklyn’s approach to their intense attraction to one another and the way things developed between them. There were so many beautiful moments in this story and lines that made me fall for Dane over and over again - I consi ...more
Danes an amazing guy and omg sexy isn't the word, his the kind of guy we all want and need, a bad boy, pure sexiness, someone you just have to have here, now, right this second but he will never be yours.
I read the first book in this series, If Only, and I loved it. I was happy to see that we would be getting more in this series, and we would be getting Dane’s story. Dane is so friggin hot and is a ladies man. He loved women and is not the settling down type of guy. He does not tell women anything but the truth, and is honest in telling them he is not into exclusivity.
Saffron, Dane’s sister, gets him to go to a dance performance for a show called Release. Let’s just say once h ...more
Dane is the quintessential love 'em and leave 'em type. He goes from woman to woman never stopping long enough to form any kind of lasting or meaningful relationship. He is sexy, fun and confident with the added bonu...more
Brooklyn is a dancer in every sense of the word. She lives and breathes dancing, but after tearing her achilles tendon she is sure she will never perform again. Brooklyn goes through a tough spot in her life emotionally and physically, but after time and attention Brooklyn finds herself in San Francisco dancing in Release. She thought she knew how much this show would change her life and give her back her dreams, but she never ...more
Dane is a man who loves EVERYTHING about women. He is not ready to settle down in life just yet and is happy with the way his life is. That is until his sister Saffron pulls him to the opening of a dance show one of her friends has put on and the beauty known as Brooklyn comes to grace the stage. Saffron made it very clear from the beginning that all dancers were OFF LIMITS because she knows what her brother is like, and she doesn't want to ruin the friendship she has because her brother ...more
I was half expecting for this to go into my take or leave it pile since I wasn’t totally in love with the first in this series, but I was pleasantly surprised how much more I liked Release. This one can also be read as a stand-alone as it takes place in the same time frame, but it doesn’t give anything away. Dane and Brooklyn were both likeable characters and their relationship actually had realistic ups and downs. Dane is a bad boy player type, so Brooklyn is understandably very insecu ...more
Release is the second book in the Captured series. The whole gang is back for this one but it is focused on Dane and his lovely dancer Brooklyn.
Release introduces us to Brooklyn a strong willed, beautiful dancer who captures the eyes and heart of Dane.
Given Dane's reputation and a past full of pain for Brooklyn their relationship is faced with many obstacles. From trust issues and the inability to be fully open with each ot ...more
This book was FREAKING HOT!!!! Dane is a hot womanizer that had no plans to ever settle down with someone yet alone fall in love. That all changes when his eyes fall upon the sexy dancer Brooklyn from the UK. There was something there that drew him into her and couldn't help himself. I loved the connection these two had. Trying to build a relationship with trust is hard with both of them having such horrible pasts. Can this relationship survive anything?
Also I really grew to like Brooklyn.
But sometimes in the first part of this book I couldn't help myself and felt them not only dancing with each other but more around each other and their relationship. But at the end I liked them and their story more than I thought I could.
As they opened up to each other completely I fell in love all over again with ...more
This book was great at exploring the lines between how you can be so close to someone and yet so far away. Dane and Brooklyn both had issues that impacted their lives in a big way and even though they shared everything of themselves physically and every free moment, they were closed off emotionally, not totally, but in a way hat could've ended their relationship and the title is so apt. Not just as the name of Brooklyn's show but ...more
Dane is pretty deep, we got a good view into that from the first book. His story is pretty tragic. We knew he lost his parents and that cut him deeply. He also lost a few other people. He blamed himself for not being there to help them.
Brooklyn is a professional dancer with a slight distrust of men. Despite ...more
Louise J has always been a daydreamer, but never considered writing a novel until days before typing the first words to If Only. Joe and Callie (and Gerard) appeared in a dream and her mind has never been her own since then, and she’s never alone. When she’s not writing she spends a lot o ...more
