Book Blurb:

Along with Zeke, Damian and Alex, they make the streets a safer place. When a sweet, kind and adorable neighbor moves in next door, Caleb does his very best to avoid her to the extent of being rude to push her away. But when she is taken hostage, he will go to any length to get her out safely.


Gwendolyn has already lost so much and starting over in a new city as the head librarian in the district is just what she needs. Apart from her gorgeous yet rude neighbor, life is looking up. Then she’s taken hostage and her hero is none other than her annoying neighbor, Caleb.


From hostage to a target of revenge, their relationship gets more complicated. Is there love enough to keep them together?


My Review:


Caleb and Gwen are neighbors yet there’s a fire brimming just under the surface. Can they navigate the stormy waters of love, or will a revenge plot destroy their happiness? A.G. Kirkham is back with a new romantic suspense and it’s the best one of the series. From the start of this series, I’ve had my eye on Caleb. He’s a very good leader and cop. He protects his own but hasn’t found the right woman. That is until he meets his match in Gwen. The Hostage is written for the romance reader and trust me, you won’t be able to put it down.


What makes this book such an incredible read are the characters. Caleb and Gwen make a great couple, even if their meet cute is stressful. Once they got to know one another, it’s easy to see why they fall in love. Gwen has been through a lot yet she’s positive on life. She also has a huge heart. Caleb isn’t your typical cop. He wants to find his woman, like his friends have, but his career comes first. He’s such a great hero and well-written too.


The writing is some of A.G. Kirkham’s best work. She puts in all the time and energy into her writing so I, as the reader, can escape into her world without any effort. I forget I’m reading fiction when I read her books. The writing is flawless and chockful of emotion. I whipped through the pages at a frantic pace.


If you’re looking for an unputdownable romantic suspense, pick up The Hostage. Highly recommend!


My Rating: 5+ stars

Author Biography:


I was born in a small town in Italy. My parents are loving people; and true traditionalists. I grew up being a chatterbox of a child and evolved into a quiet and shy teenager. I was definitely not the life of the party. As a matter of fact, I never wanted to go to any high school dances or any activities the school offered. I was good with being alone. I had to grow into my own and I eventually became the fun loving, open-minded and creative person I am now. I love the ‘me’ I have become and I am grateful that this is where I have landed.


Writing is my release and I have escaped in my imagination to some incredible places meeting the most awesome characters. I also wanted to be a rock star but anyone who has ever heard me sing kindly convinced me that I do not have any talent. (In other words, I suck at it.)


Although I have been writing since I was in grade school, and I am a hopeless romantic.


GUARD is the first book in a seven book series. In 2019, WAR (Book 2 in the series) will be launched. Each book introduces characters who you will learn about in the next series.


Why I write romance? I thrive on two individuals connecting in mind, body and soul. The understanding of wants and needs and placing them as a priority and not out of fear of losing them or because you feel you need to concede; you do it because it feels easy and right in your own heart.


My other passion is cooking! I enjoy making meals for my family and friends and bantering around the table. I have colourful people in my life and they all add to my rainbow. I love music! I like it all, depending on my mood.


And lastly, I love to travel. I want to enjoy all that life has to offer. I want to meet people, learn from them and create the most fantastic, sexy love stories. If I can do this overlooking the ocean and feeling the breeze wash over me then I have my heaven on earth.


Stay tuned for more novels in the Satan’s Pride motorcycle club and Dark Reign mafia romance series coming soon!
