Stolen Life is the second book in the Beauty in the Stolen series and continues the story of Cassandra and Ian.

I’m a criminal, the most wanted man on the continent, and this time I stole myself not money or jewels but a woman. My woman.

I remember enjoying Stolen Lust and when I got my hands on an ARC of Stolen Life, I was so excited. And I’m happy to say that Stolen Life was even better than Stolen Lust. This book was so addictive, I had to know what was going to happen and how the book was going to end. I also really love that this book is set in South Africa and that our main character, Cassandra, has a heart condition. These details make the book better and more interesting and original, in my opinion.

I really love Cassandra, or Cas, because she’s so strong and she knows what she wants. And Ian also knows what he wants and that’s Cas. But besides the kidnapping part, I think that Ian is so much more than you would think. I think he’s thoughtful and protective, and I love that about him. There were also some moments that were really sweet. I really love Cas and Ian together!

And like every second book in a trilogy, Stolen Life ended with a cliffhanger. When I finished reading the last chapter, I was staring at the wall. I didn’t know what to think of it, and I still don’t know what to think of it. What I do know is that I need the third book, Stolen Love, ASAP! Stolen Life was an amazing Romance read and I’m really enjoying this series. I cannot wait to read Stolen Love, but I’m also a bit sad because it’s going to be the last book in the trilogy.
