He seethes with raw power the first time I see him—pure menace and rippling muscles in shackles. He’s dangerous. He’s wild. He’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
So I hide behind my prim glasses and my book like I always do, because I have secrets too. Then he shows up in the prison writing class I have to teach, and he blows me away with his honesty. He tells me secrets in his stories, and it’s getting harder to hide mine. I shiver when he gets too close, with only the cuffs and the bars and the guards holding him back. At night I can’t stop thinking about him in his cell.
But that’s the thing about an animal in a cage—you never know when he’ll bite. He might use you to escape. He might even pull you into a forest and hold a hand over your mouth so you can’t call for the cops. He might make you come so hard, you can’t think.
And you might crave him more than your next breath.

Book Review: 4,5 stars
“Prisoner” is the story of Abby, a 22 year old student, and Grayson, a 26 year old… inmate. Yes, a convicted felon in the prison, Abby has to teach an English class for. There is a certain OTT chemistry between the two completely different people. But when the tables turn and push comes to shove (literally), can the chemistry turn to something real?
First off – “Prisoner” is not as dark as I thought it would be. Yes, it was gritty and raw and definitely not a cookie-cutter romance. But not as dark as predicted. The sex-scenes were at the beginning only “semi-consent”, but holy moly – very hot!
The writing was amazing, I loved “Wanderlust” by Skye Warren already and in collaboration with Annika Martin, it made for a very suspenseful, sexy and YES – weirdly – sweet book. Sweet in the sense, that I found the love-story very heart-warming, insta-love be damned!
There are definitely some points from the plot, that are unresolved in the ending, but there was definitely a happy ending for the couple, so this book can be read as a standalone. To this point, there was no information whatsoever from the authors, if or when there will be a second novel in this series. But don’t worry, the ending was very satisfying.
Why not the full 5 stars then? Well, I had a few minor issues. But they were so small, that they are not even worth mentioning.
All in all, I rate “Prisoner” with 4,5 stars and can recommend it to fans of dark(ish) romance.
