Theirs to Take by Natasha Knight

Eva Webb didn't know what she'd find the night she secretly followed her fiancé. She had feared he was meeting another woman.

But it was so much worse than that.

The man she loved betrayed and kidnapped her, packing her onto a truck destined for the black market to be sold to the highest bidder.

But when the vehicle is ambushed, she is delivered into the hands of her fiancé's enemies: mercenary brothers who would stop at nothing to take him down.

For Gabriel and Syn Rivera, hijacking the truck and stealing its cargo was another job, another way of taking back what was stolen from them.

Discovering Eva on board was an unexpected bonus.

They now held in their grasp the one thing that could bring down an entire organization, making her a pawn in a deadly game -- a game in which she'd need their protection to survive. But that protection would come at a price.

Now captive to the brothers, Eva would learn that they have always shared their women, and she would be no exception. They would keep her safe. They would protect her. And they would make her theirs as well.

But in a world where criminals often wear two faces, where putting your trust in the wrong people can get you killed, will Eva find she has mistaken lust for love, or will this unlikely union survive?

Theirs to Take was a semi-dark captive story (not what I was expecting) that contained BDSM elements, touched on the topic of human-trafficking, and ultimately ends with – you guessed it: LOVE.
Yes, Stockholm Syndrome is present but I just couldn't get into this story.
The brothers: Syn and Gabriel are trying to rack up evidence against a very bad man. They are the "good guys" in this story, but that's not really saying much. I just couldn't find any redeeming qualities about them. They're sadistic, under the guise of "punishments," and not kind in any way. I understand WHY but I just couldn't like them. This fact alone is why I chose my rating.
The story was a quick one, but the ending felt rushed and the chemistry felt off, but the story was okay.
I know that many will enjoy this story, it just wasn't for me.

The book was a quick read.
I liked Eva, she was a strong character and always stood firm with what she believed even if it wasn't always in her best interest.
The brothers had that dark and dangerous vibe about them, they never made any excuses for who they were or what they wanted and that was Eva.
A few issues for me though, I felt the ending was a little rushed. The book is multiple POV so it would have been nice to see what the brothers had been up to in the last year of the book. Also a peeve for me was the use of the word "bottom hole" – for me personally, I didn't think it fit with the theme or the language of the book.
Other than the two issues I had, I enjoyed the book.

This is one of those books which is dark, skirts perilously over the edge of what should be acceptable, but still engages the reader with the lead characters so strongly that it is impossible to stop reading. It is very clever in that the direction which it makes obvious, it then sets up tiny signposts of hope. It is also full of extremely intense moments, which sweep away preconceived notions of acceptable, and heat up the room more effectively than a furnace. Clever, arousing and interesting ... a good read.

I am the author of several BDSM, spanking and dark romances, all of which explore the mind of the Dominant male and the submissive female. I'm forever searching for that single most important element of LOVE. My characters are as human as I: powerful yet incredibly vulnerable, flawed, perhaps damaged, but with an unending capacity to love.
