Author: Michelle Abbott

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Goodreads: Add To TBR List

Book Blurb:  A romance set in a world where slavery is government run and slaves are fitted with microchips.

Savannah, fleeing a turbulent relationship, seeks solace at her brother’s country farmhouse. It’s there that she meets Kayden; her brother’s slave who's considered less than human. These two damaged souls form an unbreakable bond, one that’s about to be tested, because Kayden is her brother’s property and he will stop at nothing to keep them apart.

Please note this book contains some sexual scenes, violence and strong language

My Rant:  In chains is a wonderful story. It almost made me feel as if I was reading Romeo and Juliet again. Two hearts that could not be together because of the way the world was. Savannah and Kayden touched me on so many levels. This story poured all the love it adorn in to me. Savannah was a character I could admire and respect. She had a good heart. I wanted with every fiber of my bones for her to be happy. You just don’t have people around that have that halo effect on you. Kayden was sweet and endearing just the type of man that every women dreams about in their  fairytale love stories.

This is not an easy story to read. The objectives of the story are harsh but real and that’s what made me work through it. Kayden is a slave that savannah falls in love with. But according to societies standard slaves were objects and not people. Kayden was not allowed to love freely without being punished for it. It is so hard to write this review because I am completely emotional. I laughed, I cried and felt despair but what shocked me the most is that I felt the love between the characters in the midst of their trails and tribulations. They loved each other with everything they had to offer one another but life was cruel especially in this book. I was ashamed of some of the events that have taken place in this story and to think in real life people look at other human beings as less than human. The author places that reality in your face. There is nowhere to run and hide from it. All you can do is face it dead on with Savannah and Kayden.

I hate Simon and Ben. At this point I am done with both of the characters. Its not so much what they did to Kayden it was how Simon knew his sister love Kayden and he still subjected her to those twisted extremities and not once did he try to hear her out or make it right by her. Ms. Abbot, I hope somewhere in this book Ben gets what’s coming to him because he was such an arse.  The biggest I have scene.  I hope that Simons conscious eats away at him until Savannah and Kayden are set free.

Savannah: You loved Christina don't you? How would you feel, if tried to keep you apart? How would you feel if I attacked her every time you went near her?

Simon: He sighs and shakes his head.

From the beginning this story kept me entrapped in Savannahs world. The author’s writing was amazing. The way she told the story was like I was witnessing it as a true to life event and through this story she completely worked me over emotionally and just when I thought she was done she tugged at the base of my heart sending shocks through my entire body. This love story is not the easiest love story to work through and that’s what makes it so soul searchingly touching. I am sad that I had to leave Kayden and Savannah behind. These two characters just touched my heart and affected me so much that I am going to be thinking about them often until book #2 is released.

My Recommendation:

This beautifully written story is definitely going on my favorite list. I rated this book 5 out of 5 purple rant hearts. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves an unrelenting love story.
