Ensnared – Rita Stradling


Who doesn’t love fairytale remakes? Not this girl! One of my favorite Disney stories is Beauty and the Beast, so you can imagine my excitement when I found an alternative version of this in science fiction form.

This story has all my feels. A romance story between a broken and disfigured man and a loving and damaged heroine. I couldn’t put it down, often growing irritated with people who continued to interrupt my story dwelling.

My only wish is that the buildup lasted longer. Don’t get me wrong, the buildup was sufficient for the story. I just love buildup and could read entire stories where the buildup is the entirety of the tale.

The characters were likable and compelling to follow. The robots were real characters in their own right with their lovable cuddle-bug personalities  or their villainous ways.

I was ensnared by the story and I think romance loving, science fiction geeks like me, will enjoy it as well. If you’re a sucker for the emo boys, then this will hit the spot.

The book is not published yet, but I recommend you check it out on Goodreads, or if you are a blogger/reviewer check it out on Netgalley.com.

Synopsis: Alainn’s father is not a bad man. He’s a genius and an inventor. When he’s hired to create the robot Rose, Alainn knows taking the money is a mistake.

Rose acts like a human. She looks exactly like Alainn. But, something in her comes out wrong.

To save her father from a five year prison sentence, Alainn takes Rose’s place. She says goodbye to the sun and goes to live in a tower no human is allowed to enter. She becomes the prisoner of a man no human is allowed to see.

Believing that a life of servitude lies ahead, Alainn finds a very different fate awaits her in the company of the strange, scarred recluse.
