CAPTIVE (book 1 in The Survival Race series)
Release Date: June 4, 2013
Publisher: Forever Yours
The last thing Addy Dawson remembers is a blazing inferno and freezing river water overtaking her lungs. When she awakens, Addy finds herself on a strange, alien planet, trapped in a cell with no doors, no windows– and to her horror– a naked warrior who claims to be her mate.
AN UNDENIABLE PASSION
An alpha gladiator, Max is forced to breed and produce the finest specimens for the Survival Race, a deadly blood sport created by the alien rulers of Hyborea. To rebel means torture-or worse-yet Max refuses to become the animal his captors want him to be. But their jailors will not be denied, and soon Addy and Max find themselves unwilling players in this cruel game. Pushed to the limit, they will risk everything for the chance at a life free from captivity. And though fate brought them together as adversaries, Max and Addy will discover that when they’re together, there’s nothing in the universe that can stop them.

If you enjoy Cheryl Brooks books and you enjoyed watching the T.V. series/movie “Planet of the Apes” you will enjoy K.M. Fawcett’s new series. “Captive” reminded me a lot of “The Planet of the Apes”,series. While, the world building was good,it was a bit confusing at times. “Captive” is a alien themed story,so if you don’t like this type of story you may not enjoy this title. Although, I do not like this type of stories, I must say “Captive” was an interesting read. Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley.
