Stockholm Syndrome by JB Brooks Review + Giveaway

Stockholm Syndrome Cover

Psychology postgrad Evelyn Maier eschews men and sex. Her joy’s in work and travel—like her upcoming trip to Africa. But her vacation is cancelled when she inadvertently enters a dangerous, illicit sex game. Without warning, she finds herself ensnared by a smoldering Dominant who pulls orgasms from her nearly against her will.
Mason Brady has suppressed his Dominant nature ever since a disastrous relationship that left him broken. But when his brother convinces him to rejoin The Chase, the sprawling game of domination and submission Mason founded years before, he relishes the role. Until he captures Evelyn, an unwitting passerby. Now Evelyn is crying rape, and Mason is racked by guilt. He’s certain he’ll convince her it was a misunderstanding, but he must hold her until she trusts him. Evelyn has her own angle: she’ll play along with Mason’s kidnapping until she’s fooled him into believing she’s forgiven him. Then she’ll seek her revenge once he releases her. In the ensuing game of cat and mouse, they ride the lines between capture, consent, and love.

This is my first book by JB Brooks and I have already read two other books by her because I loved her writing style! When I read the blurb of this book, I just knew I was going to enjoy this book! I was hooked from the second page and I read the book in one sitting because I was entertained by this story and l enjoyed the unique plot.  
Stockholm Syndrome is about Evvy Maier being at the wrong place at the wrong time.  Evvy was turning in her paperwork before leaving on a trip to Africa.  Evvy had a past of doing stuff for other people and nothing for herself.  Now that she is older, she wants to travel the world.  As Evvy was set to leave the university she comes in contact with a man that is playing an illicit sex game. 

Mason Brady, is the founder of the game called The Chase, were men and woman participate in a sexual game on the university that is held every year in the summer.  When Mason captures Evvy everything is about to change for him.  He believes that Evvy is part of the game and that her cries are just part of the show.  When he finds out that is not the case he makes a plan to "kidnap" her to make her believe he has not done something wrong and show her that he is not a bad guy.  Evvy is saying what happened between her and Mason cannot be forgiven. 

This was a fun Sunday afternoon read that I would want all my friends to read if they are interested in a sexy read! I can't wait to read more books by this author!
