-All of these aches and hurts, she decided are badges of courage, not marks of dishonor. They are battle wounds, tokens of her survival. Inner Thoughts of Brook in Betrayed

Brook was living the good life in her gated community, in her big house with her rich husband Clark. The setting is Denver,CO. The book starts with Brooke on her way out to start the day and run some errands. Clark remembers that he needs to get this book for his boss as a gift, Clark asks Brook if she could grab it while she is out. Clark suggest to her that she should take the Ferrai since this may be one of the last days she will get to drive it in the nice weather.(its early fall) She totally agrees and jumps in the Ferrai.

In a seedy neighborhood Brook starts to get a bad feeling, but this is where this book store is and its the only one that carries this book. Before Brook gets the chance to back track she is bum rushed an thrown back into the car. A gun is held to her temple and she is told to get on the floor. Both Brook and the car are stolen. The car is turned over to someone else and Brook is taken to a cabin in the mountains and held against her will.

The book is fast paced and in your face raw. I would say the first half is rough to read. It is told in two pov's Brook's and a man named Lance. Lance is a loner living in the mountains away from civilization. Their worlds collide when Brook runs into Lance while making her great escape. Lance and Brook slowly bond and fall in love. This made the book better however that's if you can make it through all the cruelty,hatred and humiliation Brook has to endure before she escapes.

PJ Great Kidnap list. Have you heard of or read The Hermit by Shayne McClendon? The plot is very, very similar to this. It's only 123 pages, but it was very good...a 4.18 rating. Anyway, it's worthy of your list. I gave it 5 stars. :)
