Comments The Captive

  • Katie W

    I came away from this book feeling almost emotional battered. I got so caught up in the story, I felt like I was trying to negotiate for some hostages, right along with this team. I enjoyed every minute of it and I'm sooo grateful that I don't have to really live a life like this.Jake is a Navy SEAL and is very dedicated to his job and in doing it well. In fact, he's so brusque that he has to take a few lessons on compassion and gentleness from his foster sister, Chivonn. His mission is to offer [...]


  • Heidi Robbins (Heidi Reads...)

    This is the first book I've read by this author so I didn't quite know what to expect beyond some good reviews I had read. I enjoyed the main characters Jake and Mya, but felt like I only got to see the surface of their personalities and sensed there are more layers there. Since this is the first book in the Griffin Force series I hope their characters are delved into more deeply in future books, as well as other members of the task force. There are some scenes with action, but they are spaced w [...]

    I loved this one. But I might be a little biased since I wrote it. :)


  • Melanie

    Julie Coulter Bellon is one of my favorite authors so I was excited to learn she was writing a new series! I love her books because I know there will be action, suspense, drama, romance, fantastic dialogue, and it will be clean! This book delivered in all those areas.Jake is a former Navy SEAL heading a group charged with the task of rescuing an American diplomat who was kidnapped. Mya is the daughter of a hostage negotiator who they're hoping will help them. Mya is a bit upset at first that she [...]


  • Kelly

    I feel like I just got off the longest rollercoaster ever! There were so many turns and twists and my stomach rolled a few times. It was exhilarating! I want to go on it again! I’m glad this is a start to a series!I’m not one to pick up a book with some politics or terrorists in them and I was taken aback by how much I enjoyed it. I can’t seem to figure out how to tell you about it and give it the justice it deserves. The writing is amazing. The characters believable. The rifts between Jak [...]


  • Aimee (Getting Your Read On)

    It is always a happy day when I get to sit down and read one of Julie Bellon's books. New releases from her are like Christmas for me. Lucky me, I got to read this book over the Christmas holiday so it was like Christmas and Christmas for me! :)This book is the beginning of a new series but still brings the same elements that I've come to know and expect from Julie Bellon. There is always action and mild suspense along with the romance in her books and this book was no different.Jake is all thin [...]


  • Rhonda

    The Captive by Julie Coulter Bellon (Griffin Force #1)4 STARSFirst book in a new series that I want to read the next book. This is full of drama, action, mystery and romance suspense. It is a clean read but does have some violence.A US diplomat and his translator has been kidnapped. Terrorists want money and prisoners to trade for him.Mya Amari is a lawyer in Canada. She has been asked to help to get her father involved to help mediate with the terrorists. She has not seen her father since she l [...]


  • G.G. Vandagriff

    This book reads like front-page news! Bellon’s knowledge of current events and her ability to write them into an exciting, credible story is first rate.We meet Jake Williams again (introduced in Ring Around the Rosie) and his task force of one American, two Canadians, and an Algerian woman, Mya who is the key to their whole mission. Mya’s father is one of the best known negotiators in Africa and Jake’s task force relies on her to talk her father into brokering the safe release of an Americ [...]


  • Tressa (Wishful Endings)

    THE CAPTIVE was a read with some action and suspense, but mostly about two individuals with a lot to lose and are trying to do the right thing. While I didn't love the book, there was a lot of potential and potential for the ensuing series. The romance built as the two main characters experience some tough things together, which always creates a bond, and then learn to trust each other when they really don't trust anyone.My biggest issues with the story was the probability of what happened and t [...]


  • Melissa Nichols

    When I read a Romantic Suspense, I expect to be pulled into the story line at a fast pace and within the first chapter or two. This book just did not do that to me. I never felt that need to keep reading to find out what happens next. I never felt like I needed to stay up all night to finish the book so I could figure everything out. It took me until I was halfway through the book to feel like I was mildly interested in the book. I really struggled falling in love with this story. The story line [...]


  • Rachel Devaughn

    Commander Jake Williams gets assigned to a special team along with a woman named Mya, to rescue an American diplomat who has been taken hostage. This is the first book in the Griffin Force series, and I hope there will be several more! This story has a fast pace plot, great drama, suspense and clean romance. I couldn't tell who was working together as a team and who was the enemy some of the time. Nothing was predictable or boring. My 14 year old really enjoyed it as well! We both finished the b [...]


  • Sam B

    I received this ebook through ebooksforreview in exchange for an honest review.First of all, I was a little deceived by the book, because it wasn’t quite what I thought it would be. I thought I would be reading an action-packed book, but instead for more than half of the book, it exclusively romance. I still give the book 4 stars, because the book wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t what I thought it would be.As for the book it itself, it was a pretty good story, but a little too slow-paced for me [...]


  • Cami Checketts

    I'm such a huge Julie Bellon fan and this book is up there with my favorites. I loved the blend of danger, action, internal character drama, and romance. I cannot wait for the second book. This series is definitely a must-read for me.


  • Karlene Browning

    The suspense part of this was good. The romance part just wasn't for me. Don't ask me to explain because I can't. But if you've liked Julie Coulter Bellon's other books, you'll love this one. :)


  • Shauna

    Give me a good suspense story and I am one happy girl-Julie is one of my go-to authors for the BEST SUSPENSE!A great read for this weekend :)


  • Tcbtou

    Once again, Julie Coulter Bellon has written a captivating, heart pounding, page turning novel, that could very easily have been ripped from today's newspaper headlines. I was literally drawn in from the very first paragraph, where I found myself thinking, "hey, what's going on here, and what's going to happen next?" The book begins with former Navy Seal, now Special Agent, Jake Williams being pulled of an airplane and taken to the U.N. for an unexpected meeting with an Admiral. Jake learns he w [...]


  • Kristina Applegate

    When you get a call from your government asking you to help head a task forced to rescue an American Diplomat, you can’t turn it down. However, there’s a little glitch; you are now the personal babysitter for a very head strong and ambitious woman. Jake and Mya are both very strong and independent people and now they must shake that off and work together to save an innocent man and woman from their kidnappers. Can they let go of their dislikes and their prejudice’s to complete the mission? [...]


  • janet

    I love Julie Coulter Bellon's books! This one did NOT disappoint! There is intrigue, suspense and a little romance--I would like to see more--no explicit scenes, just the main characters connecting a little sooner. =) I have read a few of Ms. Bellon's books and I love that they are CLEAN.Jake is a former Navy seal, asked to head up a rescue mission in the Middle East. He also finds out that he will be a "babysitter" to the daughter of the middle Eastern negotiator, that is supposed to help with [...]


  • Ashley D

    This book was so fun to read! I loved it! It hooked me right from the beginning with the looks that turned into a miscommunication from both sides. I really enjoyed how the author wrote it and kept it exciting from beginning to end. It's totally clean as far as language and sex go. I appreciate that in a book as well. I think that it makes the book more interesting to see how they interact with each other in their "everyday lives" rather than always in bed. I thought that I had the book figured [...]


  • Anna Cisney Barclay

    I'm having a hard time rating this book, because I feel like I was in the wrong mood to read it (I started reading when I had a headache, and it goes into a lot of details early on). It was squeaky clean, which I appreciated, and it took me away from my regular world which is always fun. I think there is a point in my life when I would have really enjoyed this book. But I am definitely in the mood for really cute/sweet romances lately, and while I don't mind the characters having flaws, I like t [...]


  • Nari

    This is a fast paced military adventure book with some romance. Mya has lived in Canada with her mother since she was 12. Her father sent them away because his job was too dangerous and he wanted to protect his family against it. Mya lost her mother to cancer 6 months before the story starts and is feeling all alone. She finds out her half sister has been kidnapped and she is determined to do whatever she needs to do to save her.Jake has left the Navy SEALS to a safer job of homeland security so [...]

    A few days after a U.S. Diplomat and his translator is kidnapped, a special task force is put together. Former SEAL Jake Williams is the commander. Mya, the hostage negotiator's daughter is also part of the team and does not like being kept out of the loop. From the get go Mya and Jake bump heads.Through the whole novel there is an underlying tension between Mya and Jake, they have strong feelings toward each other but struggle to trust each other. I liked the plot, however the climax was cut sh [...]


  • Anita

    I really like this novel as the beginning of a new suspense series. It is a military/espionage story. It was well written and had a couple of unexpected twists. I don't know how accurate it is that different government organizations act on their own without any communication, but it seems quite plausible. Jake and Mya are both strong, complex characters. They both have a bit of a chip on their shoulders that smooths out later. I felt like the whole team who were sent on this mission were fleshed [...]


  • Loralee

    This was a great book! I don't usually read modern thrillers about terrorists and Navy SEALs, but I make an exception for Julie Coulter Bellon's writing, because I know from experience, that it is fantastic! Jake is a great three dimensional character, completely believable, and I really like him. I'm also embarrassed to admit that I am jealous of Mya. But golly, I am. Jake is a great guy, brave, ethical, and really, really good looking. Mya is also a character I admire a lot. She's courageous, [...]


  • T.

    I received The Captive as a review copy from the author. The gifting did not determine the review/rating, which reflects my honest opinion. Stellar writing style and good pacing with twists and reveals adding to the drama. I intensely disliked a couple of the book's issues-- smoothed over with non-answers (How did you know which way to go? I just knew it.), and the main female character, who I found to be rude, unreasonably stubborn, and over-emotional. Mya's hair-trigger temperament played well [...]


  • Erin Reed

    This story was a fantastic blend of romance and suspense. This is a story that takes us all around the world, on a search for a kidnapped diplomat and his translator. But things are never as they first seem.Mya and Jake both have their missions, Jake is there to rescue a diplomat, but Mya is there to rescue her sister. But no one knows how close Mya is to the translator that has been kidnapped, and that is how Mya wants it to stay.I loved this story from the very first word. I was sucked in to t [...]


  • Gayle

    This was the first book I've read by Julie Coulter Bellon and I thought it had a great mix of action, suspense and romance! Parts of the story seemed like they could have easily come from today's headlines. I had a little bit of a hard time with how quickly the romance developed, especially considering the dangerous circumstances they were constantly faced with, but it's pretty easy for me to overlook that kind of thing.I loved Jake's character and his protectiveness. It took me longer to warm u [...]


  • Kim Bradshaw

    Good start to a new series! Jake Williams has been appointed to lead a task force to rescue an American diplomat who has been kidnapped. He is working with a new team with only one person he knew previously, and he and Ryan didn’t part ways well. Mya is on the team because she is the daughter of a hostage negotiator. Mya and Jake have a rough start, and she doesn’t help by keeping secrets. Jake was very likable from the beginning. Mya was a little harder to like—she was very stubborn, and [...]


  • Melissa

    I’m so glad I had the chance to read The Captive by Julie Colter Bellon. I have the opportunity to read books for free for an honest review. This is great and everything but I have approximately 200 books on my To-Read list. New, wonderful books like The Captive keep getting put in front of my other books and they are pushed to the back. Well they’ll just have to get over it! The Captive is quite easy to read. Some books like the Bourne series require, for me, three months practically alone [...]


  • Jessica

    I went into this book thinking oh great another book about the military and terrorism, but the book was well-written the characters are likable and it was an enjoyable read. Like I said I wasn't thrilled to be reading a book about terrorism and I was worried it was going to be like all of the movies and books on the subject. However, the author's writing abilities won me over, but I did drop one star. I feel like we have the climax at chapter 20 and the book only has 24 chapters. I feel like the [...]
