Blog Tour: Entrapped

Banner.jpg

Entrapped by Claire Ayres is a great book to see how broken people can heal each other.

*Entrapped is an 18+ Contemporary Romance with several graphic sex scenes*

Jess struggles with mental illness, depression to be specific. She has reached out for help and is hoping to go back to being her normal self. But her boyfriend is not supportive. He overlooks her mental illness and Jess suffers abuse until he finally leaves her. Her only relief comes from listening to the handsome Italian next door playing the cello. Through music, both Jess and Luka begin to heal from the heart break in both their lives.

Entrapped was a pretty good book over all. I’m not really one to read romantic books, but the blurp enticed me and I really wanted to be a part of the Jenny in Neverland tours (thank you Jenny!).

I had a few issues with reading this book. The first is the time line jumps. None of them seemed to flow well and I got tired of jumping back and forth, especially in the beginning pages. The next issue was the boyfriend. My anger and frustration is really at this character flaw in general, not Ayres’s writing. I know a girl from college whose own husband divorced her because he did not believe the suffering and pain she was going through due to Lyme’s disease. It’s a heart wrenching ordeal. And with mental illness becoming a major headline, people need to open their minds to realize that a chemical imbalance in the brain really is a disease.

But this book ties heart ache and pain and suffering with healing so well. It may not have been a perfect journey, but the healing process was real and understood. I believe this book will be a shining light to those who suffer with mental illness and severe heartache. And the steamy parts weren’t that bad either.

Entrapped by Claire Ayres receives 3 stars.

  1. You’ve got an excellent point about people suffering with depression. This book could help them figure out how others handle pain. I’m glad you pointed that out… sometimes different styles work for different people. I’m looking forward to reading more from Ayres. Have a great weekend.

    1. None of us are the exact same, it makes the world a beautiful place. And there is no cookie cutter magic cure for everyone. I’m hoping this book will encourage those who struggle and inform those who don’t. Enjoy your weekend!
