Audiobook Review: Kidnapped by the Fae (Fae’s Claim, #5). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Kidnapped by the Fae by Laxmi Hariharan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lethal Dark Fae Assassin Hawke is a bloody liar…

I didn’t run away from him.

I would’ve never run away from his massive arms, his beautiful, sculpted chest, that delicious heat of his brooding, grouchy presence. *swoon*

I escaped to get his attention.

To prove that can’t control me, stalk me, yet pretend that the chemistry between us doesn’t exist.

I broke away in a show of independence…

…only Hawke came after me.

No, correction: He freakin’ kidnapped me because he claims that “he knows best.” The hell?

He insists that it’s the only way to keep me safe from the vampire-Viking alliance.

That he’ll do anything to protect me. Even keep me hidden away from the world, and out of his heart and his bed, because, you know, he’s too old for me? As if !

Except…he’s here with me.

In this tiny house, it’s just me and him, and his mouth-watering masculine scent that clings to my skin, *gulp*

Oh, and he’s still in denial? What the—?

What’s a girl got to do when surrounded by a 100% virile, growly, a-phahole? (especially when he makes my panties melt with a glare?) *shiver*

I set out to tempt him, show him what he’s missing…

…then, he reveals his secret.

Turns out, once you catch the attention of the devil, there is no going back…

The Hero: Hawke – He is an alpha in the Fae Corps and has been watching Charley for two years. Though he thinks he is too old for her even though she finally turned 18. He has been following her for the last two months since she left the Fae Corps stronghold in Singapore.

The heroine(s): Charley – She is the sister of Jess and she has had a crush on Hawke for years, and she knows how he has been watching her. But she is intent on losing her virginity whether with Hawke or someone else.

The Story: Hawke kidnaps Charley in order to save her from herself. Especially since the Fae Corps have united with Gabriel and Raphael to take down the Vampire – Viking alliance and the virgin auctions that they have been holding for years.

I have to admit all five books of this series are basically the same story told again and again. They contain dominant alpha-hole Heroes, damaged main characters, violent alpha Fae matings, and many even have the same or similar wording. I think that in nearly every book there was a point or two where someone said something along the lines of “all the pores on my skin popped” and I remember thinking every time, what the heck does that mean? And the word “turgid” was used far too often.

Each of the books, had a Hero who wants his heroine more than anything and gets all alpha possessive, but still doesn’t want to be tied down or has reasons he thinks he can’t be with the heroine long term. In this case he is fifteen years older than her and thinks he is too old for her and would be too rough for her.

The narration was great and I did like the romance between Charley and Hawke. Charley was spunky and turned the tables on Hawke more than once.
