Review: Captivated by S.A. Archer & S. Ravynheart

Captivated (Touched #5) by S.A. Archer & S. Ravynheart
Synopsis (Goodreads):
London’s had a rough journey and made some bad choices. She’s on the Unseelie hit list and hoping that hooking up with a Seelie is the answer to all her problems. Only now that she’s beginning to get a glimpse of the bigger picture, she finds herself at ground zero of more magical trouble than she ever expected.
My Thoughts: I'm not going to lie, Dark Lugh works for me. I like the slightly feral edge that's starting to show around the edges. He might be a bit much once the darkness overwhelms him a bit more but I like this version of him. Good guys gone bad through no fault of their own are something of a weakness of mine, I must admit.

Let's talk about London now, shall we? I like London. She's made some really bad choices along the way and she's also stuck with something dark inside her through no fault of her own but she has this moment in this book where she looks past her own wants and desires and sees that she's part of something BIG. Her actions could help the Fey survive. Heck, her actions could help Lugh survive what's coming. I just... like her. She feels guilt for some of the things she's done. She's paying for her naivete in spades. She and Lugh as a team feel right. Also, her offering herself to Lugh to help satiate his beast was weirdly hot. Self-sacrifice for the good of the many appears to be my other weakness. <3

London seems like she's finally willing to embrace the circumstances she's been thrust into, while Lugh's darkness throws another obstacle up in their quest to restore the Fey. Yes, I am having tons of fun playing in this world. How could you tell?
