Taken, a novella, is the book 3 of Charlotte Stein’s Under the Skin series. I got interested in this series when I hosted a blog tour for the author. This series is also my first try at this author’s writing.
From what I’ve seen, the books in this series don’t connect at all... at least where the characters are concerned. The theme varies but there are always these dark elements that are dealt with in each book.
I read book 1, Intrusion, couple of month ago. It was an intense story of two psychologically damaged people who were the victim of kidnapping at one point of their lives. And that is only a part of their ordeal. While Beth has somewhat picked up the pieces of her traumatic experience and moved on with her life, Noah couldn’t because his scars ran deep. Both physically and psychologically. They were neighbors for years, yet Noah’s reclusive living had made sure that Beth was a stranger... until one day, when she had to knock on his door. And when they find each-other, it didn’t feel like something rash or unwanted. Oh their connection, physical and emotional, was awkward at first but somehow, both Noah and Beth ended up filling the void in each-other that both were harboring ever since their experiences.
