Ok I read the blurb and the author's note and I still put off reading this thinking it was going to be something I wasn't in the right emotional space to read. I am happy to admit I am an idiot. This book was awesome. It made me run the whole gamut of emotions but the main feeling I had was one of falling in love. That is after I stopped laughing at Lily's arguments with her brain and her smart ass comments.

I don't know if it's the books I chose or if it's all the books out at the moment but this is the first book in a long time I can honestly say that I watched Lily and Nox fall in love and I felt it right along with them.

My knees sting like hell but I don’t utter a word of complaint, because let’s face it, Nox doesn’t seem like the giver of fucks.

So first impressions seem to be a little less than flattering as far as Lily goes but luckily for us (and the story) Nox shows some redeeming features other than the ones under his clothes although maybe we should check those ones out first ;)

But then we get inside Nox's head and we can't help but get a little swoony.

She's pretty. And when I say pretty, I mean pretty. And she doesn't even know it. Which doesn't help me in the slightest. Her long, dark-reddish hair has half come out of its ponytail. It's thick and has a wave to it. Her face is clear and her skin has a peaches - and - cream thing going on. She's pale. Almost like she's never seen the sun, but it suits her. Her bright - green eyes are encased by long dark lashes. She doesn't wear a stitch of makeup. She's naturally pretty. But that hair ....... that fucking hair. I haven't seen anything like it.

And he just keeps getting sweeter and more perfect and we watch the depth of emotion between them deepen.

Until finally

This book was awesome and I really regret that I didn't read it sooner but I am REALLY glad that I get to encourage you to pop your cherry so you all can hit me up to discuss the awesomness as you read it.

“You remember what you said this morning? About it being totally stupid to fall in love with me?"
At that, my eyes open. He adds quietly, "Then you should start calling me a fuckin' moron.”
Belle Aurora, Willing Captive

Belle Aurora
“Owe ye everything, son. Ye need or want anything, ye just ask."
Nox earns a point in my dad's book when he utters, "I'm quite partial to your daughter, actually. I was kinda hoping I could keep her.”
Belle Aurora, Willing Captive

Belle Aurora
“Wrapping her arm around my waist, she squeezes tightly and hisses out a breath. "Dammit, that hurts!"
And I can't help but chuckle.
I think she said the same thing the first time we made love.”
Belle Aurora, Willing Captive

Belle Aurora
“Can't help who you fall in love with, princess.”
Belle Aurora, Willing Captive

Belle Aurora
“Standing face to face with a still pissed Nox, I find myself getting pissed, too. Nox just has that effect on me. I swear this guy must’ve been conceived through back door action. There’s no way being that much of an asshole is natural.”
Belle Aurora, Willing Captive

Belle Aurora
“You know how when a guy and girl really like each other in a book, they talk about a spark between them? With Nox there is no spark. No. He bypassed the spark. When Nox touches me, there’s nothing less than the whistling, shrieking explosions of fireworks. Big ones. The ones they save till the end of the show.”
Belle Aurora, Willing Captive

Belle Aurora
“That one person everyone looks for. They search and search, and some die trying to find ‘em. And when you finally meet them, something inside of you says “Oh, there you are. I’ve been looking for you. And I didn’t even know it.”
Belle Aurora, Willing Captive

Belle Aurora
“I don’t utter a word of complaint, because let’s face it, Nox doesn’t seem like a giver of fucks.”
