What happens when your captor becomes your savior?
Mikayla Miller wakes up one morning, bound to a bed, in a farmhouse in
Alberta, Canada, with no recollection of how she got there.
When she comes face to face with her captor, Mikayla can’t deny the
instant chemistry between them. The man she only knows as Nolan insists he’s
her protector, but lives by his own unique moral compass.
As the days turn into months, Nolan’s touch, his words, and the way he
looks at her, ignite her body and soul. No matter how hard Mikayla fights
their unmistakable connection they share, she begins to fall for him, and a new
woman is created in her place.
Back in the small town where Mikayla disappeared, two women reel from a
shattering loss. When letters suddenly start appearing from Mikayla,
twelve years later, they are left wondering why she’d choose her abductor over
her own family.
Love is complicated, and messy;
but sometimes the heart can’t help what it wants.
For Mikayla Miller, it never was a choice.
Stockholm by Leigh Lennon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
So Stockholm by Leigh Lennon Is one that really appealed to me when I read the blurb.
And though I did enjoy this I wasn’t overly fond of the writing style used here.
The story in itself here was great. I just felt it jumped POV to often and sometimes I found myself a bit confused and lost within the timeline.
I would have liked to have spent more time getting to know Nolan/Mikayla and David/Colette.
as because of the way that this was told I didn’t feel that connected to there story.
Despite the above, this was an interesting read that did capture and keep my attention.
One thing though, I didn’t find “Stockholm” dark at all, it was actually quite sweet in its execution and intent.
Overall I would describe this more as a saga with romantic overtures than an actual full-blown romance.
In conclusion, I found this a unique read and I thought the twist at the end was a fabulous addition to the plot.
So its a thumbs up from me.
I was provided with an ARC of “Stockholm” By the author of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

Deep down, Mikayla understood Nolan was taking over her heart. Ethan, her boyfriend, had come out of nowhere, and she thought their love was the real deal until Nolan appeared in her life.
“No, Mikayla, get that out of your mind,” she said out loud to stun her back to reality.
“Who are you talking to?” Nolan asked, walking by her room.
“Just myself,” she replied.
“I’m not a bad guy, Mikayla,” he said, and she wanted to think of him as a monster, but she couldn’t.
He entered her room, this time without permission, and she didn’t stop him. As she sat with her ass planted on her bed, he walked toward her, stopping when his knees touched hers. She didn’t look at him, but he grasped her chin, tipping her head to his. “You have to know what I feel for you is as real as the snow outside.”
Her eyes tried to avoid his gaze, but the more she felt his stare, the more it drew her eyes to look at his. “Mikayla, tell me to leave the room, and I will.”
She sat silently, not saying a word. “Mikayla, tell me not to touch you, and I won’t.”
Again, she said nothing.
“Mikayla, tell me you don’t have feelings for me, and I will believe you.”
Again, she couldn’t speak. At the moment, she was mute.
“Tell me not to kiss you right now, and I won’t.”
Sitting down next to her, he moved her face to his, leaning his head toward her. “This is it, sweetness, no turning back.” Right then, she leaned in, placing her lips on his as their connection strengthened with their first kiss. It was soft. How could his lips be so tender, she thought as their tongues danced together? She couldn’t pull away. In her mind with her judgment clouded she told herself, I don’t want to stop this, not now, not ever.
