Genre: Romantic Suspense
"Trapped" was an amazing, at times frightening, sometimes heartwrenching read. Jackee is trapped in locked-in syndrom after an accident. A surgery afterward goes wrong, and Jackee is left almost completely paralyzed. All she can do is blink her eyes. She uses this to communicate with her therapist.
The story is harsh. Jackee yearns for freedom but is trapped in her own mind. There's a romance going on between Jackee and Kevin, her therapist. But then there's also the darker part of the book, when Jackee's husband is happy that she's unable to do anything herself.
The book was very good. I had to shed a few tears. It was a strong story, with compelling characters.
