Release Blitz + Review - Prisoned by Marni Mann

Cover Design: MadHat Books
Release Date: August 24, 2016
When I opened my eyes, I was in a cell, my body covered in bruises. Not a jail. I’d been kidnapped and imprisoned. I wasn’t alone. I shared the cell with Garin Woods, the man I’d loved since I was a kid. The man I couldn’t be with because of the secret. A man who would kill me if he found out what that secret was. Someone wanted to torture me. Torture us. One of us deserved it. It wasn’t Garin.  

**ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review**

This book is about two childhood friends, Garin and Kyle, who after a horrific incident grow apart. They went from spending every day together to not seeing each other at all. They end up losing all contact and go and live their own lives. However something happens and they find themselves reunited after twelve years.

I had to get my thoughts together after I finished this book. I had so many mixed feelings. The first half of the book was really strong and very intriguing. I loved the flashbacks were we got a great view into Kyle and Garin's friendship when they were younger. They were each other's lifelines and they had each other's backs. It was beautiful to read the type of friendship they had. Even though it goes back and forth between past and present, it was done perfectly and they weren't very long. 

Garin and Kyle are kidnapped during their reunion. I had two theories in mind why they were kidnapped. Towards the second half, I had a pretty good idea what was happening. I didn't know what to think of it. The book took a whole another direction and I didn't see it coming. This book is very dark and suspenseful. It had definitely a mindfuck element to it. It also had some very hot sex scenes! Seriously they were on FIRE. 

I still don't know how to feel about it though. There were so many horrific scenes in this book. I was schocked and I couldn't believe what was happening. When I first finished the book I was pretty angry because I wasn't happy with the last quarter of the book, however after cooling down I love it. I love how the author was able to extract such extreme emotions from me. I am being vague on purpose because this book is best enjoyed when you go in blind.
