Jessica Hayes after discovering her boyfriend, Ryan, had cheated on her and her father humiliated her in front of a load of people fled to Cleveland to live with her grandmother. After four years and the past still not completely behind her she has to return to Lexington as her father is dying. Once there she realises you can't run from your past, especially when there's love thrown into the mix.

This was an interesting read. Although it starts off pretty slow it picks up speed quickly leaving you not only wanting more but keen to find out what will happen next. There were some grammatical errors but they weren't very noticeable and were few and far between.

I loved the characters, especially Ryan and Jessica. I couldn't get enough of them and was rooting for them from the start. I love a feisty but sweet heroine and Jessica was definitely that - more so after a few tequilas. Ryan just sounded like a hunk. Their turbulent relationship the moment Jessica arrived back in town was rocky to say the least. Jessica avoided him so the past could remain hidden and he avoided her for his own reasons. It's not until he eventually tells her how the past four years has affected him that she realises she wasn't the only one hurting. Their love story was brilliant, sometimes cheesy, but brilliant. The supporting characters were great. The friends of both protagonists were supportive through and through.

The story once it really got started was one that kept you hooked and wanting to turn the page, even if it was just to find out that it got better for either protagonists. You were definitely left guessing - cheesy it might have been but it wasn't generic. ( )

Jessica was a fun-loving person until her heart got broken by two people she loved the most: Ryan and her father. She packs up and leaves to start over only to return 4 years later because her father is ill. While being in Columbia brings unwanted memories, she endures her pain to be there for her mom. She tries to stay hidden, to not go out to avoid certain people but of course, she runs into Ryan.

I love the rocky relationship Ryan and Jessica have throughout the story. They start by barely being able to talk to each other to helping one another. It’s true that it isn’t until Ryan tells Jessica about the past four years of his life that it is when Jessica wants to help him out. She feels it is her fault he got into the mess he had.

This is wrong but I love how broken Ryan really is. I love that even through everything he went through, even when he is not allowed to, he tries to stay by Jessica’s side. At first he pushes her away but he realizes he still loves this girl and he tries to fight for her.

I am one that loves stories where the couple is together from the start on some stories. With CAPTURED LOVE, I totally adore that it is not the case with this story. They barely even talk through half of the book but the reader can slowly and eagerly read about Ryan and Jessica’s relationship and anticipate it with so much fervor. ( )
