Review: Beyond Ransom by A.T. Douglas


My body is broken.

My life is shattered.
Everything I've ever known is gone from me, yet I've discovered something beautiful.
I didn't expect to be taken. I never dreamed that love would find me while my life was slowly stripped away. With him something new and alive stirs within me, and I am completely changed. 
Though battered and broken-down, I'm not alone. The most unlikely man protects me and gives me strength.
I will survive this for him. I will find a way to save us both.
While they hold me, he holds my heart, and I'm not willing to pay the price to get it back.

WARNING: Beyond Ransom is a New Adult Romantic Suspense novel intended for mature audiences 18+. It contains disturbing situations, graphic violence, strong language, and sexual content.

The Ransom Series concludes in Beyond Revenge, available February 8, 2014.


With the encouragement of some close friends, I've been working on stepping out of my comfort zone with my book choices lately.  I'll freely admit I like to be guaranteed the happy ending right from the start.  I love the "cookie cutter" story lines - love at first site, some minor obstacle that they struggle over, and then live happily ever after.  This is not that book.  Not even close.  But I absolutely LOVED it!

Beyond Ransom has an original, but dark, even slightly disturbing storyline at times.  But it is written so well that I devoured it in one sitting and am begging for book 2.  

After reading the summary, I kinda thought I'd know how the story would go (so I'll admit I didn't think it was going to be that far out of my comfort zone), but boy, was I ever wrong.  This story was something I could never have imagined.  It kept me guessing right until the end. I never knew which direction it was going to take next.  Who do you trust?  How can their love possibly survive?  How could she make those choices?  

This was a unique story, full of drama, dark, and dangerous situations that had me shaking my head, holding my breath, and still somehow also hoping they make it despite it all.   Amazing writing, solid story, and an unusual but intriguing love match made this a definite 5 star book!  Cannot wait for book 2!! -Tynna
