Review- Prisoner by Annika Martin & Skye Warren

He seethes with raw power the first time I see him—pure menace and rippling muscles in shackles. He’s dangerous. He’s wild. He’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.

So I hide behind my prim glasses and my book like I always do, because I have secrets too. Then he shows up in the prison writing class I have to teach, and he blows me away with his honesty. He tells me secrets in his stories, and it’s getting harder to hide mine. I shiver when he gets too close, with only the cuffs and the bars and the guards holding him back. At night I can’t stop thinking about him in his cell.

But that’s the thing about an animal in a cage—you never know when he’ll bite. He might use you to escape. He might even pull you into a forest and hold a hand over your mouth so you can’t call for the cops. He might make you come so hard, you can’t think.

And you might crave him more than your next breath.
J's Review

"My pulse kicks up. How would it feel to push her? To undo her? To break her fucking glasses? Because I got the sense she might like her glasses broken.” 

Prisoner was such a good book. The writing sucked me in from the start and the journey of Grayson and Abby, was one weaved with danger, sex, darkness, and love. Its definitely on the darker side, though I didn’t find the entire book completely dark.

Grayson was the perfect antihero, and never pretended to ever be a good guy. That’s my most favorite part of antiheroes...they own their assholeness with zero shame. He was perfect, and my heart broke for him and his story.

I loved Abby! Though we the reader knew who was 100% in charge (looking at your Grayson) she never once came off as a weak female or pushover. She wanted what was delt, and she took no shit. She fought for her life and didn’t cower-down once. I loved that about her.

This book had me on the edge of my seat THE WHOLE time I was reading. Once I saw that the ending was near I honestly had no idea where or how it would end.

I’m normally skeptical when reading a co written book. I feel like you can always tell the difference between the two writers, but god, Skye and Annika are a match made in heaven. I couldn’t tell where one author stopped and the other started. It’s actually almost hard to believe that two people wrote this story that’s how in synch their writing was.

Prisoner was a great book to start the new year!
