Trapped in their basement.
Raped, beaten, and broken.
All I have left is my sanity.
Preston took my name, and my body.
Paxton took my heart.
Existing only for him.
Don't make me walk away.

***As if it wasn't clear enough, there are TRIGGERS in this book, and if you are not over 18, or cannot handle subjects such as violence, kidnapping and rape, this is NOT the book for you**

The warning attached to this story is definitely warranted! As an avid reader, I know when we see warning at the beginning of a story, we get what we call the "reader eye roll" and a yeah ok whatever because it's a complete exaggeration. This is the NOT the case with the story. Trust me!

I freely and unashamedly admit I wasn't ready for the pitch blackness of this story. As a connoisseur of the pitch black I've read quite a few books outside the realm of reality. However, this story knocked me on

**PSA~ for this Goodreads review, there might be some excessive swearing which will be edited for the Amazon review**

Holy mother of hell! I've read read novels by Shannon Youngblood before, but nothing will compare to Trapped. I fucking loved it! Yes, I swore, which is incredibly rare, or at least, I try not too so that I don't have to pg myself later on, but I believe that this review warrants it. It's not your conventional romance s

Holy friggin hell!
This was my first read by Shannon Youngblood, so going into it, I had no idea what to expect. The entire time, my mouth was open. This was one of those books, where you need to make sure you clear your day, because you clearly aren't going to be getting anything done.
Without giving anything away, we're centered on a young homeless girl that was kidnapped. She doesn't appear to have a name, but one of her captors, calls her Wendy Darling.
Wendy, is then tormented, in the most un

This is my first book by this Author and it will not be my last. I need to check out her other books.

This book has messed with my head I am not even sure where to start with a review so i keep it short..

This book is twisted and Dark.. I really liked Number 12 or Wendy darling such a brave young girl.. and i just wanted to crawl into the book and take her away.. my heart broke for her a few times..

The book was well written.. I really enjoyed it from start to finish.

Trapped is the first book that I have read by Shannon Youngblood. And, what a mind fuck type of book it is! (I know I will have to change my verbiage for my Amazon review). But, this book is full of mind fuckery!

I could not put Trapped down! I will let you read the synopsis on your own. I think the author does a far better job than I do.

Please read Shannon Youngblood’s warning because this is a VERY DARK book with a twisted ending. So, if those are thing

Warning!!!! This book isn't for the faint of hearts. You will experience graphic scenes. Read of your own risk.

This was hard to read at times..One man got me through it. I would carefully get through the rough parts to cherish how well Paxton is with her. She appeared with no name. Paxton renamed her Wendy. She was to forget who she was and become the Wendy they would train her to be.
The girl with no name was taken from the streets to become one p

I don't know where the HELL to start with this review......
In this we meet "Wendy Darling" or "number 12", a runaway, who's living on the streets after what has been a seriously messed up past.
Then we meet Preston and Paxton,......Preston has to be one of the most sick, twisted evilest slave trainers I've EVER read! The things he does to her, the punishments she endures are just so depraved!
Then we've got Paxton, who isn't necessarily a slave trainer but kind of is..His training of her is diff

Freaking TWISTED!!!

WOW and yes I made it to the end. And what the freak did I just read??? Seriously this book is NOT for the feint hearted for sure. This book was so twisted on so many levels and by far probably the darkest book this avid reader has ever read. I devoured this book so yes it's dark, twisted, ummmm probably demented on so many levels but couldn't stop reading it. I had to find out if "12" got her HEA!! Well read the book!!

This is a new to me author and I'm so happy I got to read it. The short blurb and the warning had me jumping right into this story.

The nameless girl hasn't had it easy when she finds herself homeless after running away from her foster home. Wendy Darling as she's called now finds herself naked and afraid in a basement. Preston her master is training her to be the perfect slave. He abuses her body in whatever way he can. Paxton eases the pain after each session.

This is a well written, dark and

Wow what an edge of your seat story! Scary and very descriptive Wendy as she is called is taken from her cardboard box home and finds herself strapped to a bed in preparation to be trained as a sex slave. Paxton the man who comes and explains things to her tells her that if she does as she is told she will survive or she will be punished. Preston is the twin of Paxton and where Paxton is gentle Preston is viscous. When Preston begins to train her is is unbelievable, how she survives an hour is u ...more

I ABSO-FREAKIN-LUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK!! I don't even know where to start. This book is a total mind f**k. Throughout most of this book I cried. The torture that Wendy Darling went through, I don't even remember if her real name was ever mentioned, but the torture was so unbearable I don't know how she didn't die right there on the spot. Preston was Satan himself and Paxton was, well, not completely the opposite but he was someone with feelings who really cares for Wen

This was my first book by Shannon Youngblood and WOW..get ready for a deep dark gritty ride. As the warning states there are some dark subjects in this book so if you can't handle them this isn't the book for you. This is one of the darkest books I've read in quite a while. It's a well written twisted story about number 12 (Wendy) and the terror she endured at the hands of Preston. Preston emotionally and physically destroyed her while Paxton heals her body and mind. As twisted as the book was I ...more

WOW......This book makes your skin crawl, your muscles shiver, and your thighs clench. This story takes all the deepest darkest depraved thoughts that mankind has ever thought of, and used them against a girl. You want to put it down, you tell yourself you have to put it down, there is no way you can read it. Yet the pages keep turning, the story gets darker. Soon the story ends and you ask yourself did I just read all of that in one sitting? The answer is yes...and your looking for another stor ...more

Reviewing this without spoilers is hard for me so I'll keep it short & sweet, although there is nothing sweet about this book! The girl without a name but sometimes called Wendy Darling has had one f**ked up life. Finally being free from foster homes, she's snatched from the streets only to be prisoned in the type of hell your worst nightmare can't even describe. This was my first read of Shannon's but she's got me feening for more! Told from characters POV, extremel

Trapped was my very first Shannon Youngblood book, however it DEFINITELY won't be my last! I was left feeling in AWE of this talented new to me author. I am a HUGE fan of the dark, and twisty world. Not gonna lie, I LOVE books with trigger warnings. They get my blood pumping! And Shannon hit it out of the ballpark with Trapped!!! Just absolutely BRILLIANTLY written!!!

***Be advised this story may contain certain triggers***

With that said, this book was hard to put down. I needed to know what happened next. I needed to know if she would be saved or trapped forever.

To sum it up: It was a twisted, mind fuck that held me until the very end.

So now you will need to read and find out - has she been saved or will she be trapped forever?

My review is based off reading the Beta of this book.

This is the first book I have read by Shannon and it definitely won't be the last. I wasn't sure what to expect when I agreed to read this book. But I'm so glad I did.

Trapped is dark, twisted but brilliant.
At the age of 18, she ran away from a horrid life, and is living on the streets in her own personal hell. She's taken and wakes up in a luxury bed instead of a cardboa

“Wendy, Darling” also known as, “Girl”, is plucked off the streets where she was homeless, taken to be trained as a sex slave. The men holding her captive are not your typical abductors. They are brothers and very different from one another.

Paxton: gentle, patient and sweet.
Preston: dominant, brutal and uncaring.

With an odd obsession for numbers, especially the number 12, the brothers assign her a task each day that involves counting. If she does not come up with the correct answer, the punishme

Wow! I am speechless. If you like dark, dirty and raw, this is it with a huge twist! This is a hardcore read so be prepared. Loved the whole story!

Shannon has a wicked mind but I love it! Her words will take you on a horrific, wonderful ride. The intensity of the story is both heartwarming, but also brutal. The fear Wendy Darling feels when she wakes up from her cardboard box, to being in a soft warm bed is incredible. Her senses tell her she

This story line is very dark and twisted!!! And I enjoyed it.
This book tells a story of a young girl running away from the sexual abuse of her adopted father, being kidnapped by two brothers, to be trained and sold as a sex slave. One brother is depraved and sadistic and the other is caring and loving.
The sexual torture is unimaginable. Keeps you wondering how this can ever happen.
As you keep reading, if you do, the ending is so surprising. Wow!!

It's not that hard to put two and two together and get one. Well not if you are an avid dark romance junkie as I will admit that I most certainty am. Stick with me here people I am going to try to illustrate for you the emotional effect of this book. Because telling you even a drop of the storyline is too much to give a way!

I finished it, but I didn't like it and I will never read it again. Trapped was like a car crash I couldn’t look away from and something kept pushing me to see how it ended. I should have stopped.

There is a warning in the description that says this book isn’t for the faint of heart and contains some triggers. It’s a dark, depraved story where the heroine is kidnapped by two men and repeatedly raped and tortured. I don’t really consider some of the events that happened as triggers so much as the
