On the way to investigate a fugitive sighting, 21-year-old news intern Aubrey Kent is injured when an unexpected storm destroys the newscopter—along with the rest of the crew.
Now, stranded in the Canadian wilderness and on the brink of death, Aubrey is rescued by a handsome stranger whose cold disposition is as frightening as the remote cabin in which he lives. With no way to reach civilization before spring, Aubrey becomes Jack Gordon’s unwanted roommate. Her hope for rescue is much more desperate when she sees his hostile attitude and violent behavior.
Aubrey and Jack wait out the winter, they grow closer—their delicate friendship blooming into feelings neither of them could have anticipated. But the weather and the wolves aren’t the only dangers in the mountains. As Aubrey uncovers the reason for Jack’s self-imposed isolation, she realizes she’s closer to the story than she imagined—a story that might cost her life.
Trapped was an interesting read that had many twists throughout it. There was a lot of mystery to the book that left me wanting to know what was going to happen. Amanda Lance did a great job with the way that she wrote about the main character experiencing survivors’ guilt and PTSD from the plane crash.
The male character of the story Jack was mystery to me for most of the book. He didn’t give much away throughout most of the book, however as the story started to unfold, I found that I really enjoyed the character. I found that he was caring person that made wrong choices in his life and I enjoyed the ways that he cared for Aubrey. I would of loved to read more about Jack and his backstory because I found him to be a very interesting character.
Aubrey or also referred to as Lucky was a feisty and brave character that had experienced a lot throughout the story. I really enjoyed the way the author was able to capture the feelings that Aubrey was feeling after experiencing a plane crash.
Trapped is about intern journalist Aubrey going on an investigative news report with her team about a fugitive assignment. However along the plane crashes leaving only Aubrey left to be saved by a mysterious man.
Overall, I enjoyed the idea of two people being trapped in a cabin with each other. I found that the book being in the first person point of view of Aubrey left a lot of mystery to the book and I enjoyed that a lot.
