★★★ Review, Giveaway & Book Tour For Trapped by Amanda Lance ★★★



by Amanda Lance
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Genre: New Adult/Suspense
Publication Date: October 28, 2016


On the way to investigate a fugitive sighting, 21-year-old
 news intern Aubrey Kent is injured when an unexpected
 storm destroys the newscopter—along with the rest of the crew.

Now, stranded in the Canadian wilderness and on the brink
 of death, Aubrey is rescued by a handsome stranger whose 
cold disposition is as frightening as the remote cabin in which
 he lives. With no way to reach civilization before spring, 
Aubrey becomes Jack Gordon’s unwanted roommate. Her 
hope for rescue is much more desperate when she sees his
 hostile attitude and violent behavior.

Aubrey and Jack wait out the winter, they grow closer—their 
delicate friendship blooming into feelings neither of them 
could have anticipated. But the weather and the wolves 
aren’t the only dangers in the mountains. As Aubrey 
uncovers the reason for Jack’s self-imposed isolation, she
 realizes she’s closer to the story than she imagined—a story
 that might cost her life.

Okay this book hit me completely by surprise. It took me 
awhile to write this review. I was so emotionally vested in the
 story. I felt like I was there. This book is so well written and 
a completely wonderful tale. Even considering the fact that 
in this book deals with some serious issues. Such as PTSD
and survivors guilt. Which Amanda skillfully handled, so well 
I do hope she did not have to go through either.   
She defiantly did her research. 

This story is about a Jack and Aubrey. Jack has a secret 
he is afraid to share and man is he moody. But there’s 
something different about him. Under his rough and tumble
 exterior, lies a very sweet and kind person.  By the time his
 secrets came out I was already loved him. He was such 
a caring person. But he made some wrong choices in his life.
 I however enjoyed the ways that he cared for Aubrey. 

Aubrey is a feisty and brave and has experienced a lot 
throughout the story. She was an intern journalist sent on an 
investigative news report assignment with her team about 
a fugitive. In the storm causes a crash and all but Aubrey are
 dead. She is the soul survivor. I really enjoyed how Amanda
 was able to convey all the feelings that Aubrey was 
experiencing after the crash. However  Aubrey is left to be 
saved by a mysterious man Jack.

Now before I ruin this for you I will leave off here. I hope you
 enjoy this book as much as I did. If you do like this book, 
please consider leaving a review. The Authors really like it
 when you do; they value your opinions too.

“Why are you being so forthcoming?” Jack’s eyes opened to find mine. Apparently, he hadn’t been sleeping, or even trying to. He did shift his position on the sofa and move to stretch out. I followed suit and uncurled my legs from myself before setting my feet on the coffee table.
 “It was one of my promises,” he answered eventually. His voice was quiet, but there was a hint of something else there that I was struggling to pick up on. Was it shame or embarrassment?
 “One of your promises?”
 He sighed before baring his heart to me. “After those first three hours, when you wouldn’t wake up, I started making promises to you. One of them was that, if you woke up, I’d be honest and answer any damn question you asked me.”
 I laughed but choked on it instantly, overwhelmed with emotion. “I’m surprised I didn’t spring right up.”
“Yeah,” he said as he returned my smile. “Me too.”
“What else did you promise?” My voice wavered somewhere between hope and fear, but I no longer cared.
Then, miraculously, Jack smiled—really smiled.
“That I’d become a vegetarian. Give up meat forever and ever.”
I giggled hopelessly. “Even ham?”
 His sigh was all annoyance, but his smile was anything but. “Especially ham.”
 “That’s extreme.”
 “Yeah,” he said sadly “But the idea of losing you made me desperate.”
