Captured Innocence is an amazing read that has all sorts of twists and turns, just when you think you have something figured out, a twist happens that has you second guessing what you thought was true. Connor Ortega is a former Marine, who is now part of a special team that is filled with other former military members. When his team leader gets a call about a murder, the plot for this book starts to take shape. Connor in turn meets Lauren while looking for clues as to who committed the horrible crime in this book. Lauren is a small business owner and ends up being just what Connor never knew he needed. Lauren is all woman and doesn’t really put up with crap, she has a good head on her shoulders and knows exactly what she does and doesn’t deserve. Connor is in every sense of the word, your typical military alpha male, when he claims someone as his, he doesn’t allow anyone or anything to harm them. They do not have an easy way to go throughout this book, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t have their happily ever after! As a matter of fact I will state that this book does not end on a cliffhanger and if you love romantic suspense novels, I highly recommend this series! Ms. Layne has done an outstanding job on this novel and I absolutely cannot wait to purchase the other novels in this series. The characters are all amazing people and getting read about how they fall in love and do their daily jobs is something that is highly intriguing to me. I hope that you love this series and this author as much as I do!
