Captivated Blog Tour

Captivated 1


Domingo Torres, star center fielder for the Los Angeles Riptide, needs to stay off management’s radar after a Spring Training game ended in flying fists and bloodshed. He’s ordered to keep a lid on his temper and a low profile for the rest of the season. Keeping his focus solely on baseball isn’t a problem- until he meets his sexy new neighbor, and his thoughts shift to a lot more than his batting average.
After years of complete control in handling every aspect of her brother’s multi-platinum selling rock band, Irisa Rostov is ready to crack. And it doesn’t help that the band is on the verge of self-destruction. Playing peacemaker and keeping them together for the last six weeks of their summer concert series is all that matters- until she meets Dom, and the feelings he stirs up causes the guards around her heart to weaken.
Getting distracted by romance is the last thing Irisa wants, and being in the headlines is the last thing Dom needs, but their attraction is undeniable, their connection is immediate, and staying away is impossible.
But when being captivated by each other causes their worlds to fall apart, they must decide whether they’re better off staying on the bench and out of each other’s lives, or if love can find a way to win.

  My Review

Captivated is an astoundingly brilliant masterpiece that highlights the very best aspects of love. There is nothing better than a story that makes you feel with every part of your heart and soul! Above all, this wonderfully breathtaking gift shows us that even when we least expect it, life can bring us the greatest treasure of all. Our job is to recognize it, hold it close, and treasure it all the days of our life.

Dom has run into some snags during Spring Training for which he hopes to keep off the radar for management. While he tries to lay low and behave, he meets his new neighbor, and suddenly he can’t think of a better way to distract himself from how own problems then to get to know her. Irisa has managed her brother’s band for years, and they slowly driven her to the brink of her sanity. With her nerves on edge, and their constant bickering, she can’t think of a better distraction then her devilishly handsome and kind neighbor Dom. She is his fantasy come to life and he is her knight in shining armor. Together, they find what they have wanted secretly for so long in the other, but making it a reality, as most everyone knows, could be next to impossible. Can they beat the odds and win the heart of the other, or will misunderstandings and mistakes tear them apart forever?

I had no idea what to expect when I started this book, but I was far from disappointed. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised, and blown away by the fantastic characters and the incredible storyline that I discovered. I couldn’t get over how much I fell in love with both Dom and Irisa as well as their friends and family. They were all absolutely stunning in how real they felt, and how I could easily relate to each of them. My heart literally hurt for Dom and Irisa at times, and I wasn’t sure I would be able to recover at one point. Becoming completely lost within the characters that I read about is the ultimate compliment that I can give an author, and I have only good things to say about this author!

Susan Scott Shelley is a beautiful treasure that I have been fortunate enough to find with the romance world. Her approach is very unassuming yet powerful, and her stories will quickly latch onto your heart in a very short period of time. Be prepared to feel in a big way and have your heart invaded by her extraordinary characters. Her stories will stay with you for a long time after you read the last word. That is the mark of a truly talented author!
