***THE PRISONER is a novella (approx. 25,000 words) intended to be read AFTER The Replacement. Contains explicit material and language.***
My name is Christian Walker, and Elise Duchamp is my drug of choice.
No matter how hard I try to break the habit, it’s a lost cause. Okay, maybe I haven’t really tried to quit this particular habit. All I can think about is owning her. Making her mine. Can you really blame me? With that sinful body, luscious mouth, and wicked tongue, she’s every man’s dream, and she knows it.
No one is immune to her charm, not even me, a man who has everything—a beautiful wife, an office with a view, and more money than most people can spend in one lifetime. Only I know how to make her toes curl. Only I know her body better than the other men she screws in her free time. None of them can compare to me.
But the joke is on me. I’m the prisoner.
The one who will never compare to him. The one man who makes me see red. His name is stored in her cell phone. It’s the first one she calls out to, the first one she cries for when all hell breaks loose. Ryder Jacobson.
The name makes me cringe.
She loves him, and I love her. In my own way, I always will. But the bad guy doesn’t always belong with the bad girl. Sometimes the bad girl needs a good man to believe in her, to give her that final push toward ultimate transformation. I wish I was that good man. That I could be her happily ever after. I guess that’s the thing about prisoners, though. They’re left alone with their torment, and in the end, they have no one to blame but themselves.
The Prisoner is a gritty novel. It shows the thin line between love and obsession.
I was really happy when I found out there was going to be a book from Christian’s point of view. There were a lot of things that happened that in The Replacement that were only hinted at, and I wanted the full story. We definitely got that. Christian is kind of creepy at times. He has a very stalker-ish vibe, but he does really care about Elise. I don’t agree with how he treats his wife. He was definitely in the wrong, and that made me dislike him.
There is one event that happens, and I think it’s the kind of lightbulb moment that Elise needed to see what she truly is to Christian. Instead of realizing that, he went through with what she said without thinking about how it would really affect her.
And the ending…. good gravy what is this guy getting himself into.
I really enjoyed The Prisoner. It’s dark, and kept me reading.
