    One thought on “Captured Innocence”

    1. *** Wow, what a terrific story !! Connor, Marine now with a security company takes on a murder case, during questioning he meets, Lauren. With Connor and Lauren, the sparks fly. Deeply thought-filled characters, interesting suspenseful tale, and super hot sex and BDSM. Connor finds out her fear of being tied by her wrists, and controls her with his commands alone. He is an awesome "dom". Perfect story of investigation, mystery, romance, decisions, secrets, and intrigue. Fast moving story flows a [...]

    2. If this is supposed to be a mystery, there are supposed to be clues. Some random person is not supposed to be pulled out of the cast of characters and pinned with the rap with no warning, no foreshadowing. Instead what we have is barely a plot as an excuse to have sexy times that convinced me that BDSM is, in fact, abusive of women. Or at least, it is in this guy's case because clearly he is taking out his anger at his mother's abandonment of him as a child on all other women. No idea why Our He [...]


    4. As posted on The Smutty Kitty reviewed by Knotty Kitty5 out of 5 LicksThere are some books that when you finish them, you just have to write the review, and this baby is certainly one of them. I am new to Kennedy’s work, but LAWD am I an instant fan with this book!! Those that know me well know I’m not a huge romantic suspense reader. But it’s an understatement to say I couldn’t put this book down for anything. Everything around me went on the back burner until I hit the end!! Every sing [...]

    5. Solid 3 stars. I liked this story. Lauren and Connor were a good match. Any problems I had with this story were personal pet peeves. Like, using the word "for" to show reason. It's so old fashioned and sorta grates on my nerves. There's nothing wrong about it though. Just a writing style preference. As for as the story itself, it was alright. The romance was nice. A small amount of angst but no tears. I didn't feel moved. But, I'm a tough crowd so take that with a grain of salt. The suspense was [...]

    6. DNF @ 35%. Putting aside Connor being a Dom in his sex life, he was a pushy controlling bastard. Lauren was a wimpy pushover who protested too much.

    7. I was intrigued by this book because of the whole BDSM lifestyle and the description of the "hero" going undercover into the clubs to solve a murder. This book was a recommendation by Kallypso Masters and I really love her "Masters at Arms" series, so I was curious.First and foremost, I love Connor Ortega! A group of ex-Military men who were brought together by Gavin Crest to form a security company, who all, of course, have mingled in "the lifestyle". They are very protective and caring, and th [...]

    8. This is not your typical mystery, and in reality I'm not sure how to classify it, all I know is that is kept my attention from start to finish and made me interested in reading more of this series.We have a murder that takes us into the bdsm world with some really hot military men. Okay, let's start by stating that when the book begins Lauren in a very bad relationship with a total jerk that takes total control of her life and keeps her from family and friends. Learning this helps us better unde [...]

    9. Meh. At least it was free. Like many free novels, this one was in need of an editor. Stilted language, strange word choice, and a missed "your" (I KNOW, RIGHT?!) that, had it been at the beginning, would have resulted in me not finishing the book. Read this book if: you want to learn how NOT to plot a suspense novel, you have interest in BDSM beyond "50 Shades," or if you have infinite patience for heroines who are Too Stupid to Live.

    10. Loved it!I seriously could not put it down. It involves BDSM but it wasn't too graphic for those of us that aren't really into the "scene" and it didn't take away from the storyline at all! I loved the book and would recommend it!

    11. Never read anything by author before. It was good and would like to read more. Like cherise Sinclair but a lite version.

    12. review for audio bookThis was my first Kennedy Layne and an audio review. I enjoyed listening to this one. I was pulled in and the narrator was wonderful. This had so many of my favorites Military, BDSM, suspense, and mystery. Connor and Crest Security Agency is investigating a murder in the BDSM family when Connor is introduced to Lauren. Lauren owns her own business making custom jeweled toys for the BDSM community. Lauren knows how she deserves to be treated and doesn’t put up with crap. Co [...]

    13. This book was recommended to me by a friend of mine. I'm always leery of reading BDSM books because I'm picky. Very picky. This one, however, was right up my alley.The author did a great job with Lauren's character set up. Her issues, once explained, were believable as was Connor's response. Both of the main characters were easy to relate to I found it hard to put the book down at times. There is also a mystery to be solved. Sometimes I can figure it out, or have a good idea who did it before it [...]

    14. Sexy ex-military guy - check. Hot dude with black hair and blue eyes - check. Rockin' body and a Dom no less - check! I loved Conner Ortega and Captured Innocence! This was my first book by Kennedy Layne and it definitely won't be my last - there's a whole series to read!!!!Conner doesn't do love (yeah, yeah, yeah - we read this in every other book.) His mom left him when he was 6, and he hasn't had such great luck with girlfriends either, so he play at the local BDSM club and calls it a day. He [...]

    15. Kennedy Layne has knocked it out of the park with the first book of her CSA CASE FILES SERIES, CAPTURED INNOCENCE! Ms. Layne's amazing talent is apparent at the start. You are not just a readerl of a sudden, you are ONE of the gang. I felt like Conner and Lauren and the rest of these awesome (I hate to call them thisaracters) were MY friends. Not too many authors are able to do this. I LOVE when, as a reader, I am pulled into the book. With beautifully developed characters and a captivating plot [...]

    16. It was free? That's a plus. Sadly, the main characters gave me whiplash and the urge to hit them with something heavy. Also; you're instead of your?! Sloppy! And where did that bad guy come from? It was like pulling a rabbit out of a hat; tadaaaa! I dunno, the story was alright, I suppose. It got really intense maybe a little too fast and I really don't like pushy Doms. Dude, give her some space!

    17. CSA is a private crime-fighting collective of mainly ex-military personnel, some of whom live a BDSM lifestyle. When a woman is murdered in a way that suggests a BDSM link, they use their connection with the local BDSM community as they work to uncover the truth.Overall an entertaining read, though the crime investigation is a little thin on detail, and the perpetrator didn’t even figure as a suspect before the unveiling, so I’m not sure how good these PIs are, but the banter between them is [...]

    18. So much potential I liked the idea of this book, but to me it just seemed like the author wanted to focus more on the sex scenes, and while I am all for a good steamy book, this one was full of really awkwardly phrased scenes and I found it really hard to get through. Then there is the actual case they are working on, and the parts about that were few and far between, with little detail, and to me it seemed like what the book was actually supposed to be about took the back burner. Overall, I wou [...]

    19. It was a great book; i was uncomfortable with some of the stuff Conner did to the female lady.Was a good book; I was uncomfortable with the punishments done to the females in the book when they didn't do what the guys said.

    20. I really enjoyed this book. The intrigue and interaction with all the people from CSA was most enjoyable. I have not read many book with BDSM and was glad that the author showed BDSM is not as most people believe it to be.

    21. Erotic romance I liked the interaction between the characters. A very believable story. Very well written. I am looking forward to the next book.

    22. Definitely hot, but was a little disappointed at how tame it was. Overall, a good romantic suspense though.

    23. I had this one in my library!I had this in my library, but did not remember reading it previously. I liked it, too. Connor and Lauren had a rocky romance!
