    A Plague wiped out most of humanity. Five years later, only the strong can continue to survive. Many join colonies, others, like Leah, prefer to live alone, off the grid, out of sight, independent, hidden, emotionally distant. Then it happened, she is discovered and hunted down methodically by James, a member of a small town that claims to be a safe haven, particularly for women, who are a rare commodity in what is left of the world. James claims he is in love with her, she is to be his. Can Leah A Plague wiped out most of humanity. Five years later, only the strong can continue to survive. Many join colonies, others, like Leah, prefer to live alone, off the grid, out of sight, independent, hidden, emotionally distant. Then it happened, she is discovered and hunted down methodically by James, a member of a small town that claims to be a safe haven, particularly for women, who are a rare commodity in what is left of the world. James claims he is in love with her, she is to be his. Can Leah become a possession of a man who treats her like a princess? Has she lost the ability to feel or trust? What is the catch? The end of times has brought out both the worst and the best in humanity, where has Leah found herself? POST PLAGUE KIDNAPPING by V.B. Law begins as a strong post-apocalyptic tale, a fierce female lead and a male lead who feels like a throwback to a time when women were possessions. The difference? He actually cherishes her or at least what she represents, procreation. Slowly there seemed to be an evolution into more of an erotic tale than a survivor’s story, then it jumps back on track, but without the depth or detail of those spicy moments. V.B. law is a talented author, Leah’s trust issues and desire to be the master of her own fate are clearly outlined and understandable. I think I had a problem with how the male characters reacted to her/interacted with her, including James, who just barely stopped short of treating her like a mindless princess. Sure, he meant well, but, if the world was hanging on by a thread, it just didn’t feel realistic. I’m sure it is just me, but I expected a detailed post-apocalyptic tale, an on-the-edge world and all of the in-depth detail seemed to revolve around the sex. I received a complimentary copy from V.B. Law! This is my honest and voluntary review.

    ~Summary Post Plague Kidnapping is set in the late 2030s in the Southern US. Leah (our leading female) lives alone, fending for herself on a daily basis. She prefers it that way: when you’re alone, no-one can hurt you. No-one can leave. However, Leah isn’t the only person to survive a world-wide viral infection. Other groups have been observing her town for some time when she is finally captured and taken to live at a nearby colony. Leah must learn to trust others: her survival may literally depend ~Summary Post Plague Kidnapping is set in the late 2030s in the Southern US. Leah (our leading female) lives alone, fending for herself on a daily basis. She prefers it that way: when you’re alone, no-one can hurt you. No-one can leave. However, Leah isn’t the only person to survive a world-wide viral infection. Other groups have been observing her town for some time when she is finally captured and taken to live at a nearby colony. Leah must learn to trust others: her survival may literally depend on this. ~Story The story is well-structured, with the bulk of it revolving around Leah’s fight to be left alone as she struggles against the feelings she develops for her captor, James. Leah’s blatant trust issues are highlighted as she learns to accept people back into her life, post plague outbreak. From the half way point on, things do become quite erotic between our lead characters, so please keep that in mind if you’re below the age of eighteen. I felt that this was an interesting way to draw attention to the character’s trust and boundary issues, however, there was an awful lot of it, sometimes distracting from the actual storyline. ~Characters I honestly wouldn’t bring myself to mess with either Leah or James, if I knew them in real life. Both are equally as stubborn, set in their own ways, and are at first oblivious to any other way of doing things. Leah prefers to be independent, only looking out for herself as a way to minimize the responsibilities and heartbreak of negotiating life with others. She fears being close to others for multiple reasons that are deeply embedded in her psyche. I found her to be a feisty, cunning, funny, and deeply complex character. James is a strong and passionate ex-military man that knows what he wants in life, and it’s clear from the start that he wants Leah. At times, James is blind to the fears that eat away at Leah, leading to explosive misunderstandings and arguments between the pair. At other times, James clearly demonstrates great levels of empathy and compassion towards Leah and her trust issues, thus helping to ease her discomfort. I found him to be an often misunderstood, yet courageous character that is simply trying to keep things together for his community. While the pair’s relationship begins as a strained and one-sided attraction, it soon progresses into one of friendship and later, of passion. ~Writing The story was steady to fast paced and flowed well throughout. The lead character’s natural personalities conflict well, making for some amusing disagreements that further plot development. I was often drawn into the depths of Leah and James’ emotions, particularly Leah’s alternating sense of fear and excitement. Tension was built up well, with twists that had me guessing, especially near the end when the stakes were raised high. ~Favourite Things One of my favourite things about this book is the idea that when things collapse, people come together and care for each-other. They forget about their differences and empathize with their fellow people. It seems a shame that society would have to collapse, or for some other intense tragedy to occur, just to get people to see themselves in others. However, the idea that people can get to this stage still warms my heart. ~Memorable Quotes ‘People are judgemental and intolerant of those who don’t think like they do.’ As I reached my mid-twenties, I realized that this is true for most people, to some degree. We grow up, being taught that there is only one correct way of doing things. In reality, there are so many ways to do something that it’s impossible to count them all. We all possess different types of intelligence and logic, and I feel that we each deserve to make use of them, no matter how different from the norm they may be. After all, different problem solving processes achieve different results. ‘Fear is a powerful thing. It can make us believe things that aren’t real and deny the existence of things that are real.’ This quote hit me hard. So often nowadays, we happen across an online article or news segment with some terrifying, click-baity title. These types of articles are designed to sway us into believing certain things, or to join a certain cause or political group. Issues are presented in a biased way, with skewed context that often omits crucial truths we need to understand the big picture. As the quote says, fear can make us (as people) believe things that aren’t real, because we are made to feel like they are a present threat to us. Similarly, fear can make us question or deny simple truths, as long as they are presented to us as falsehoods by people deemed superior. Thus, the truth of a matter goes largely ignored, while the lie prevails, simply because we are so afraid, we come to believe it. This practice in our modern journalism, politics, and news distribution honestly makes me sad ~Overview Sorry, I got quite passionate about that last paragraph. Overall, I found Post Plague Kidnapping to be a fun and interesting story to read. Although there were times where the plot seemed to get overtaken by eroticism, I didn’t mind too much. This was a fresh take for me on human survival and I enjoyed every moment of imagining the characters working together to keep their little community going. My rating: 4 stars. Recommended? Yes, to lovers of post-apocalyptic style novels, with erotic-romantic leanings.

    Wow did I love this story. It was rec’d in a FB group and I’m so glad I took a chance on it. The writing was good the storyline was super engaging and I really liked the characters. I’m always down for a unique premise and this book sure delivered. The main characters were developed well and I enjoyed the banter between them. Leah was a total badass and I loved her. There’s nothing worse than a heroine who capitulates after one touch, so I especially appreciated how Leah fought pretty much until Wow did I love this story.

There’s nothing worse than a heroine who capitulates after one touch, so I especially appreciated how Leah fought pretty much until the end. She was smart, tough and resourceful. She battled James at every turn but used her strategic thinking as well. James was a great Hero as well, although there were a few times when I wanted to reach through my Kindle and smack him for his arrogance and high handed “I know best” attitude. He definitely made up for it at the end with some seriously good grovel. I loved how he saw no one else but Leah from the start. And bonus points to the author for not including any tedious OW drama. The plot flowed well and the intimate scenes were well written and didn’t overwhelm the storyline. I enjoyed the secondary characters as well and hope that some of them will get their stories as well. Tasha was my favorite character after Leah and I think she would make a great heroine in her own story. All in all this was a great story that I highly recommend.

    POST PLAGUE KIDNAPPING is an erotic post-apocalyptic story involving Leah, who has lived alone for the past five years and likes it that way, and James, who helped to build a colony where people can live in safety together. Now, obviously the title gives away part of the story. Leah is kidnapped by James and his crew and taken to the colony, whether she wants to be there or not. As characters, both Leah and James were very good. Both were independent and resourceful, wanting to do what's best. Lea POST PLAGUE KIDNAPPING is an erotic post-apocalyptic story involving Leah, who has lived alone for the past five years and likes it that way, and James, who helped to build a colony where people can live in safety together. Now, obviously the title gives away part of the story. Leah is kidnapped by James and his crew and taken to the colony, whether she wants to be there or not. As characters, both Leah and James were very good. Both were independent and resourceful, wanting to do what's best. Leah was straight-forward most of the time, only hiding things from James. She never hid the fact she didn't want to be in the colony in the first place and most definitely wanted to leave. James had his heart in the right place and wanted Leah to be safe. Of course, his version of happy and safe differed from hers. I did enjoy this story but found it to be slightly strange too. Women are supposed to be precious but are treated as though they have no say in the matter. The colony is such a great place to be, but only one of Leah's new friends came willingly. Even though Leah says over and over again she doesn't want to be there, she is not allowed to leave. And don't forget the psychiatrist who was supposed to help Leah!!! Brain-washing - check, Stockholm Syndrome - check! This was an interesting read with some major points being made in the dialogues. I enjoyed Leah's story and loved reading about how she managed to escape and survive, as well as sending her friends warning about what she had seen on the road. On the whole, this was a very good read that I would recommend, so long as you don't mind a bit of forced seduction.

    Good grovel What I liked is that the heroine of this story stayed true to herself. Yes she fell in love with her captor but still wanted her freedom back. Good grovel in the end.
