Review: After Our Kiss by Nora Flite

He isn't my savior. He's the man who's here to break me.

I was thirteen when I was kidnapped. 

Fourteen when he helped me escape. 

Twenty-three before I ever saw him again. 

His face is all over the news: he's a wanted man, now. Maybe my memory played tricks on me… but he looks so different. The boy who saved me years ago had a shy smile and dark, soulful eyes full of secrets.

This man has a hard jaw and a harder mouth. Lips that could never whisper sweet promises. 

I knew him as a hero—my savior. I refuse to believe he could become a villain. 

Not him. 

Then he abducts me, proving me wrong.

He tells me he's going to take me apart and put me back together again. Make me what he needs me to be: a plaything for a monster.

It's the fate I escaped when I was fourteen. And that's when I finally understand. 

He was never my hero. 

He's the man who's going to break me.

Author's Note: This is a Dark Romance. Approach with that in mind. I believe in happy endings in all my stories, but the trip there might make some uneasy... and I do care about your feelings. I honestly do. Please read some reviews first to gauge your comfort level.

Review by Jen Skewes

Georgia was kidnapped when she was thirteen.  She found an unlikely ally in her kidnapper’s son.  They had a special bond, he treated her with kindness and helped her escape.  It’s been nine years since she last saw the boy that saved her.  She has hoped for this day to come but when she does see him again it is not the way she expected or wanted. Nine years later the boy who was once her savior is now the man who has kidnapped her again.  His job is to torture her but also prepare for what comes next.  Georgia does not want to believe that he is this bad guy.  She knows that Conway is not the monster he makes himself out to be, or is he? 

I really enjoyed this book and the characters.  It is a dark read so this is your warning.  There were twists and turns that I didn’t see coming.  This book was an angsty and dark read and at times I wasn’t sure where the story was going. At times maybe even feared where it would go.  But Ms. Flite managed to wrap it all up with a nice little bow on top. 

While I really did enjoy this book it was missing something for me.  I think I need a little more depth where the story was concerned and things seemed to move a little too fast.  I felt and understood the connection between Conway and Georgia when they were younger, but it seemed like when they met again their feelings were a little too much too quick.  I also wanted to understand a little bit more about Lonnie and Conway’s father, a little more background on them.  Overall I enjoyed this book and look forward to seeing more of these characters and see where they all end up.
