    1. Leila thought traveling to the U.S would be the start to getting her freedom. She was very, very wrong. Instead of arriving and meeting the family she would be a nanny for she was kidnapped and sold as a sex slave. That was almost three years ago and by now she's given up all hope of ever leaving her hell. But then Callum show's up and he may just be the savior she's been hoping for. If he doesn't get captured himself, that is. This is my first read by Tara Hart so I wasn't too sure what to expe [...]


    2. DNF @ 72%I couldn't continue. I found myself skimming more than actually reading, so I think that's a sure sign to call it quits. I'll break it down with spoilers(view spoiler)[The GoodUnique Take on the Captive ThemeAt least I've never read a book that had this type of approach. It is based on a male mc, Callum, that comes home to visit his father after ~3 years (I think) to find out that his father has taken a sex slave, Leila. They both lost his mother 5 years prior, so he figures that his fa [...]

    4. 3.75 starsI need to think on this It started out strong but I ended up skimming the last 30%.Received ARC from author in exchange for honest review. Thank you TH!!


    5. 4 dark stars"You were sent here to save me and you did, in more ways than one. You gave me my freedom, but much more than that, you saved my life. You saved me from myself."Leila thought that coming to the United States will be an amazing new start in her life. Instead, she is kidnapped and taken by a sadistic man. His son, Callum, comes home one day from Italy and finds Leila in his father's home. Confused as to why there is a girl there who tells him she is his 'sex slave', Callum starts to qu [...]

I was pleasantly surprised by Lost & Bound. Even though the plot was a bit predictable, to me at least, the writing made up for it. The author's skill is refreshing and eloquent and I loved how she developed her plotline.Leila has been a captive for so lo [...]


    7. This was a real quick read for me. I read it in a few hours and I did enjoy it. This book will be dark for some so read the warnings as it contains captivity and rape scenes. As I'm a sucker for the real dark books I'd say this is a really great gritty read. I found this to be a well written story with a different storyline to what I've read before. The connection between Leila and Callum was too rushed for my liking. I would have liked to see her deal with what happened a bit better. 4 gritty s [...]


    8. This was a pretty good dark read. When Leila traveled to the U.S. she thought she would be working as a nanny instead she was kidnapped and sold as a sex slave that was almost three years ago and she has given up of ever being free. Callum show's up to visit his father and finding Emmy/Leila who he thought was the maid at first. I loved the chemistry between Callum and Leila she was a strong female who has been through a lot at the hands of her Master who is a powerful man. This was my first tim [...]


    9. I was warned that Lost & Bound was a dark romance and definitely not for everyone but I decided to take my chances on this one and I'm so glad that I did!Imagine leaving the only home you've ever known to go to America and make a life for yourself only to have it all turn into a horrible nightmare in the blink of an eye. Imagine showing up at your childhood home after being away for three years only to discover that your father is not the man you thought he was. This is Leila and Callum's st [...]


    10. Wow just wow. This book is unlike anything I've ever read. It's dark, twisted, heart-wrenching, but hopeful & beautiful all in the same. This story isn't for the faint of heart. It's very raw and has detail of rape. It's very tastefully done and not too graphic in my opinion. If there's one word that I would use to describe this story it's HOPE. Callum hasn't been home in years and when he makes an unexpected visit to his father's house he's confronted by a foreign woman holding a knife. H [...]


    11. Storyline: 5Angst: 4Tissue: 1Value: 5Panty Scorching: 4 Over All Rating: 4.25 StarsKindle eArc provided by AuthorReviewed by RobinCallum has come back unexpectedly to his father’s home after quite a long absence. Letting himself into the house, he encounters a girl dressed scantily who pulls a knife on him. Did she break in? Callum is shocked when the stranger tells him that she’s being held captive by his father. The story only gets more bizarre from there and Callum doesn’t know what to [...]


    12. Lost & Bound was a quick good read. It's told in the dual POVs Leila and Callum. It's very well written and the story pulled in right in. Leila Comes to the US seeking freedom but is tricked and sold as a sex slave. Callum meets Leila when he comes home to his father's house. Even though he meets her under odd circumstances there is still an instant connection. Leila feels safe with Callum. Leila hasn't be treated very nicely and I kind of excepted her not be so comfortable with Callum as qu [...]



    13. Lost and BoundTara Hart3.5 starsLeila and Callum – this is a dark dark read so if you don’t care for those don’t pick it up. This book focuses on human trafficking, selling of women and rape. Callum needs to save the woman he sees. The man cant leave her. Emmy is not the name she was given but its what she is being called. The man she just met she trust more than she has ever trusted anyone. She remembers nothing. She was held captive for over two years and her life started to fade. But th [...]


    14. 2.5 starsThis book was not what I was expecting. To be quite honest I was expecting something a little more darker. As I kept reading I just kept thinking there had to have been a faster way to help Leila out. Then the route Callum had taken to help Leila. He was a writer for a U.S. Newspaper. Your going to tell me he couldn't contact anyone to help him out faster? I mean There was just so many opportunities he could have taken before everything all went down.I'm sorry I just wasn't buying it al [...]


    15. I wanted to read Lost & Bound from the moment I read the synopsis and let me tell you, it did not disappoint! It was even better than I thought it would be and I'm so glad that I found it. It was an amazing book and I really loved it!Leila is an excellent heroine - she's sweet and kind and good-hearted even after all she's been through. She's strong in the beginning and she becomes even stronger throughout the book. Leila is just so lovable and wonderful and she deserves every happiness comi [...]


    16. This book was amazing. Here is a trigger warning. the book deals with human trafficking, auctioning and rape. This book is not for the faint of heart.I was given this ebook as an advance reader copy for an honest review. This book i really liked. The leading male in the story is one that is quiet different from any other male in a romance novel. In this book the leading male is a man who tries to save the woman he loves nearly succeeds. However, he and the woman he loves are recaptured and held [...]


    17. I am a big fan of the dark/twisted and odd storylines !! I don't mind the violence and bad language and the more confusion the better !! This story may be a little on the lighter side of dark than I am used to but it was a great read - I devoured it in a matter of hours. By the time we get to Leila/Emmy she is already broken , confused and hopeless. It seems some of her worst is over and as long as she obeys Osborne things run smoothly. BUT that one day an unexpected visitor comes in the day and [...]


    18. They Found each other and are no longer lostAs soon as I saw that Miss Hart had another book up for preorder after reading her debut No Angel I knew I had to get it and I loved this book as I loved the first. Leila and Callum are such a great couple, by themselves they are good but definitely searching for something but now together wow. They are perfect together in my eyes. What a powerful and at times torture to read but I'm so happy I read their story but the end what does FIM stand for? I ho [...]


    19. I received an ARC via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Tara! 4 Star read. I'm not very good with reviews but I'll try my best. I liked the main characters, the way Callum was with Leila from the beginning was so sweet. I liked Leila her character was amazingly strong for what she was going through. The chemistry between Callum and Leila was sweet not very hot but sweet as Callum assumed she would think of HIM while they were together. I really enjoyed this book and will be [...]


    20. I'm not really sure where to start with this review. Lost & Bound has some trigger subjects in it so be warned. I have been studying human slavery that is still going in today and the author did her research pretty well. It kind of reminded me of Taken when the dreams begin. The characters are pretty developed, I did feel parts of their development was rushed and made me not connect fully. Overall, I enjoyed reading and look forward to reading more from Tara Hart.


    21. 4.25 Stars. Whoa. This story was a different take for me on a captive book. Dark and strangely captivating. I love how she tracked time being held captive and then after she met Callum. You can't help but put yourself in either of their shoes and think what would I have done if. I live in Virginia so I'm picturing this small town in the Shenandoah Valley. Full review coming on The Smut-Brarians.

    23. This was a fantastic dark read! Leila's has been living in hell for the last two years with little hope of climbing out. Until Callum. It's been three years since Callum's been home and he soon realizes his father has changed. This book has a lot of twists and turns. It kept me guessing and at times cringing. If you like dark romances I highly recommend this book!


    24. This book was awesome read dark sometimes but I really like how we get to see inside both MC head's and try to understand them, this book is a roller coaster of emotions I couldn't put the book down.I received this copy for an honest review



    25. 3.5 starsARC kindly given by author for an honest review.I'm kind of on the fence about this book, I was asked to read and leave my honest review, I was told that it was a dark read violent. As a lover of dark reads I did not find this book to be that dark, I didn't find the language to be as bad as it heeds in its warning. The language in this book is light compared to Some YA reads I've read. The sex scenes in this book are lacking, does it involve rape? Yes simply because Leila is not willing [...]


    26. What a shame, the beginning for me was a nice twist to the usual captive books that ive read but unfortunately mid way through the story seemed to lose its way considerably and i quickly lost interest. It lacked depth and believability.


    27. 3.5 Stars. Not My Kind of DarkAs a fan of the dark genre, with the likes of Pepper Winters, CJ Roberts, Lili St. Germain and Mary E. Palmerin, this book didn't come close to what I thought it was. With Lost and Bound we get a story of survival more so than the dark storyline I am a fan of. The concept was different, and felt a bit let down with the warning that came with the book.Emmy is a girl in the wrong place at the wrong time. She is the victim of something we all worry about, human traffic [...]
