When I opened my eyes, I was in a cell, my body covered in bruises.
Not a jail.
I’d been kidnapped and imprisoned.
I wasn’t alone. I shared the cell with Garin Woods, the man I’d loved since I was a kid.
The man I couldn’t be with because of the secret. A man who would kill me if he found out what that secret was.
Someone wanted to torture me.
One of us deserved it.
It wasn’t Garin.

~4.5 Crazies Stars~
Garin Woods and Kyle Lang grew up in the projects of Atlantic City, known as The Heart. Garin was the protector of his friends and having a soft spot for Kyle, he always tried to take care of her. Not having much of a family support, Kyle relied on her closest friend, Garin, for comfort and food, but one night their entire lives changed. Thereafter, Kyle fled as soon as she graduated high school vowing never to return leaving Garin with an empty heart and keeping a secret she couldn’t share.
“I held a secret that should have been spoken from my lips many years ago. Instead, I kept it inside, allowing it to fester and morph into so many emotions…”
When Garin and Kyle receive news that a dear friend died they both return to their hometown for the funeral. Upon reuniting after nearly ten years, old feelings resurface but Kyle is determined to keep her secret from Garin. Once they realize they’re being held captive, what ensues takes Garin and Kyle on a dark and twisted path revealing more than just the truth.
“They are prepping you.” “For what?” “So, when they ask you, you’ll give them what they want. It’s a mind game. They’re trying to break you, weaken you through fear.”
During their captivity, Garin attempts to resume his role as protector to Kyle but she proves to be much stronger than he anticipated. Knowing Garin may suffer because of Kyle’s secret, she tries to actually protect him as long as she can. During this time, her mind and body respond to Garin in intriguing steamy ways.
“I’m taking what I want, and that’s bringing you so close to the edge until I can feel you almost start to fall.”
Immediately, I felt connected in the lives of the main characters by understanding the magnitude of their bond and decisions. Garin is such an alpha and exudes sex appeal in every way, especially when he is tentative and pensive. Even though Kyle knew what she had to do, her process was not an easy feat and it made her vulnerability and strength endearing.
In reading Prisoned, the swift pacing successfully parallels and underscores the predicament of her convincing characters. The overall tone is dark with suspenseful, erotic and torturous elements making this book addicting! The twists vary between subtle and sharp but both delivering a healthy impact. Overall, Marni Mann magnificently delivers an erotic thriller that will leave you guessing until the very end! I highly recommend!!
