Taken (The Lost and Found Series Book 2) – J.A. O’Donoghue

Taken J.A. Odonoghue


Savannah Bradley never noticed that she was different than everyone else. At least not until she woke up in a strange house and in a body she barely recognized as her own. After meeting the family who lives there, she was determined to find out what happened to her and find a way home. There’s only one problem-she’s surrounded by werewolves, including Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome, Aiden Porter.

As Savannah starts her new life, she discovers an inner strength that is just as strong as her bodily strength. With the help of new friends she learns about a war and the part that she may play in it. But is she ready when Aiden makes it clear he’s not willing to give up the bond they share without a fight?

This book is the second book in a four book series and ends with a cliffhanger.

***I received an ARC of this in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are 100% my own.***

We meet Savannah as she’s waking up. She doesn’t know where she is, or what’s going on. We find out she’s been out for a very long time, and that this guy Aiden is feeling quite attached to her. Even though she’s leery, she finds out that the family she’s with is safe, but they’re shifters. This opens a whole new world for Savannah and it is a hard adjustment for her. Aiden, didn’t know she’d be there. He had no idea when he raided their compound that he’d find the person he’d feel connected to.

This is the second book. We know from Stolen that there are bad shifters out there who’re determined to get these women who are able to bond with them. They’re willing to do anything to get them, regardless of how the women feel. We also know that they are some BAD people. Savannah has up close and personal knowledge of it. She just can’t remember it because she was kept so drugged up. We’re starting to get to know other people in this story as well. There’s Leigh and Dean and Jamie and Tracy (yay!) and Michael. The violence level is also upped as well. We’re also clued into a possible reason why the girls are picked and we know there’s a third girl. So stuff’s getting’ deep, y’all, and I can’t get into it!

Ms. O’Donoghue’s second story in this series ups the ante. Her writing is improving with each story and the tension is getting greater. I know she says that she was told “write what you want/like to read”, and I wished I could do the same. I’m glad this is the stuff she likes. This ending, though is a cliffhanger (it’s obvious that the series is going to continue on), doesn’t just cut off in mid-scene. All in all, this series is interesting. The women are strong in their own way. The heroes are very protective, but still let their women be individuals. I’m really anxious to see what happens next. So, if you hadn’t guessed yet. I would recommend the book.
