Deanna Blair moved to New York City to make more money so she could send it home to her parents whose home and business were ravaged by the hurricanes. Then Deanna is accidentally caught up in the middle of a bank robbery and taken captive. One of the brutal men seems different from the rest and he keeps Deanna safe from the other men and she is very attracted to him. When the police find and raid the group, the man she has feelings for is shot down in front of her. Now Deanna's entire life has been turned upside down. But there is more to the story than even Deanna knows¦

This is a highly emotional and stressful read. My heart pounded and I cried for Deanna in several places in the story. Deanna is truly an innocent in all of this and now she will likely live with the aftermath from the kidnapping for years to come and no one seems really concerned about helping her get on with her life except one man but can she trust him? Deanna's heart has been broken, her innocence shattered, and she doesn't trust her instincts anymore. How does she move forward with her life? I found the first part of the story, when Deanna is with the kidnappers, very hard to read and I was tempted to put the book down. I kept going though and I am very glad I did, Deanna proves to have a fighting spirit and the rest of the book about what she does after the incident is wonderful! Chelle Cordero is an author I will keep my eye on; her story telling ability is riveting and she has a gift for making even unlikable people likeable! If you want a suspense filled, emotion charged story, then read Hostage Heart!
