Description of book "The Hostage"

Amberleigh Dubois never expected to find herself in this position twice, pregnant and alone. But she should've known the billionaire's offer was too good to be true, two million dollars to have his child. Following Grayson Godwin's shocking shotgun engagement, she returned back to the Cobra Club to try and pick up the pieces of her life. At least until a familiar face shows up. Leo Clemonte just may prove to be her happy ending to this dark fairytale after all.
But then comes the call that changes everything, Grayson abducted, held for a hefty ransom. And just like that Amberleigh finds herself entangled with the billionaire once more. To find him before it's too late will take no princess. But a girl born and raised in The Fringe. But does a girl like her ever really get a happy ending?

P Tyra, Hi. See if you can access the chapters by using the desktop version which you can actually just access through the browser on your phone. If that does work, you could try to reinstall the app. Also try to reach out to Booknet Support for help with the issue thanks.

is it OK to go for a woman your best friend was into a few weeks back?. wasn't Leo still in love with his Ex ,what if G-Man tells them the real reason for his decision ,. will Amber go back to him or stay with Leo?
I liked Leo but I think he could have done better.
its not all feelings we act upon

AnnaRCase guru
07.03.2021, 01:53:06

Sandra Yeboah, To be fair Amber and Leo hit it off early on. But except for that kiss on Halloween, they didn't act on their feelings out of respect for the contract. Leo always treated her well and they had chemistry. But Leo backed off when Grayson started treating Amber better and admitted he had feelings for her. Then put of the blue Grayson dumps her, throws her out. and gets engaged to another woman. Leaving Amber jilted and hurt. I mean they did wait a whole week after the break up ha, does that count for something:)

Leo should know there is something wrong somewhere since he call himself a very good friend of G-Man. I felt G-Man did what he did for a reason. And they couldn't read between the lines
I think Leo couldn't sense that something was wrong because of his lust/love for Amber.

AnnaRCase guru
07.03.2021, 01:49:10

Sandra Yeboah, It was pretty unexpected. But Leo isn't a mind reader and Grayson has been shutting him out.

Also Amber loves Leo but I believe she’s in love with Grayson. There’s a difference.

AnnaRCase guru
09.02.2021, 16:44:45

Ovo Hippster, Yes there is. And its complicated. They're currently trying to navigate that in book 3.

I don’t like Leo and Amber together. I don’t think they should have crossed that line. If Grayson was truly like a “brother” to him he wouldn’t do that. Take Amber in and help her but don’t get into a relationship with her

AnnaRCase guru
09.02.2021, 16:42:46

Ovo Hippster, ok. Let's be fair though. Grayson treated Amber badly most of the time she was at the penthouse. She developed feelings for Leo and he was good to her. But besides that kiss at Halloween, neither of them acted on those feelings out of respect for the contract. Then things are going well, Leo is safely in the friends zone, Amber and Grayson are falling for another, he's making her promises. She expects to spend Thanksgiving at his parents house. Then out of nowhere he throws her out and gets engaged to Courtney. Grayson broke her heart and was a cold dick to her for a while after. So I don’t think she and Leo did anything wrong. Perhaps they both jumped in too soon, which they do talk about in book 3 hint :) But I'm on their side here ha. Amber didn’t know all the shit Grayson had done was just to protect her and Leo. She feels the gulit about it later on, but she had no idea the truth until later.

what inspired you to write the Arrangement and how did you come to terms with choosing the characters of the trio so many questions i have like Amber's mum want to know more about how she felt about her daughter and where her and Giovanni a forbidden love

AnnaRCase guru
18.10.2020, 13:59:02

Nicole Mtutu, But that life was what Krystal had known from her own parents. Her mother died from an overdose when Krystal was in highschool. Drugs plague the Dubois, addition is prevalent in the family.

Leo was never in my original idea. I planned on having just a minor, generic chef character to give Amber lessons. Leo wrote himself into the story and took over when I got to the part about her going to the penthouse. It was crazy ha

Grayson was the second character I thought up, after Amberleigh. I built the storyline around him asking her to be his surrogate.

Wtf!!! Okay I was thinking early on the whole poly thing between the 3 of them but now this monkey wrench!!! I found your first story on inkitt and was hooked so I had to go ahead and pay for the second book. It was so worth it!! When it ended I went searching for the 3rd book and couldn't find it anywhere I was having a panic attack because I couldn't find it anywhere. I don't usually read books on booknet so I didn't know where to find more info for the 3rd book then some how I was able to get to the comment section and find more information. That it will be out soon. I can't wait to see what the fallout of the cliffhangers will be. *** Oh to find out that a family has been trying to get a hold of your money for so long. What if Greyson doesn't have huntington what if Adam had it and the Van's switched the test and paid the doctor of to help to make Greyson become the shell he was, but Because of Amber and Leo's love for him they find out all the dirty deeds the Van's would go to.. oh and Leo has to be okay the family of 3 or more just works prefect balance. Oh I am think you will have so many plot twist that our heads are going to roll.. sorry for the rambling but I can't wai

This book series has been my favorite out of the 100s of books ive read on sites. The characters are perfect. Amberleigh's personality is great! I laugh at some of the things she says. Sex scenes are awesome and exciting. Overall story line is has kept my interest throughout, which is rare for me and my scatter brain. Only negative is my impatience waiting for the next book lol. But youre great at updates, not making us wait too long.

Kelly Blickley, Well I hope everything goes well with your surgery. I happen to be a nurse so I'm no stranger to hospitals myself. Of course it's different on the other side of things. Good luck and I wish you good health as well:) Sorry about the name ha, but my characters name themselves as it pops in my head. I've also thought about it being a movie of course, imaging the scenes in my head :) Thank you so much for your support :) More paid books are popping up daily so it's going to be more common on this site. Thanks again:)

vandana gupta, Obviously I always knew it was coming. I do everything on purpose. I also knew the steamy scenes would end abruptly after the call obviously. Thanks for sticking with the book. The third book will be a different tone obviously, the steamy stuff sprinkled here and there, this one was full of it at the beginning during their honeymoon phase.

OMG what a cliffhanger ending need to know if Leo dies?? If he did then Grayson and Amberleigh could be together for sure which is what needs to happen anyways in my book they both deserve to be a family (mommy, real daddy, baby) I would hate to see Leo die as it would be sad but I believe that Grayson deserves his real family he suffered so much.Then to boot the Van Tessin’s are the ones that killed his brother Adam wait until Grayson and his family find out about that!!!!! I can’t wait for the next book in the series The Proposal !!to find out what happens. You did such an amazing job on this series and your other books are awesome also.Thank you again but hurry hurry with The Proposal book lol I know your tired and need a rest but don’t want to wait to know what happens to them all.
