My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hot sex, big hearts, crazy situations and forever friendships…perfect lockdown reading!

Arrested Mind by H.L. Nida is a wonderfully written and richly descriptive novel with brilliantly drawn characters and settings. The author weaves a well-crafted sweet and steamy contemporary romance with intriguing twists and turns that will captivate the reader from the first page to the last. The story had every element a good story should have. An exciting plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well-illustrated scenes that make you feel you are right there in the story, and that’s something I look for in a superb book.

From the opening chapter, the reader is dramatically pulled in: “9-1-1, what’s your emergency?” “Um…Hi yes, I’m, my name is Molly Murphy.” I say, trying to remain calm while everything about what’s happening right now is freaking me the f*ck out. I tell myself to speak clearly as I say, “I’m driving down Lawyers Road heading south and I have been assaulted and the person who’s assaulted me is following me,” I spit out. “I am scared, and I need help. Now.”

I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the novel in my head to see if I could figure more out. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much. It’s a well-written contemporary romance with perfect pacing.

This was a captivating read that had me immersed from the beginning. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. There are plenty of attention-grabbing moments in this page-turner that will take the reader on a spellbinding journey.

There’s no doubt that Arrested Mind is an exceptionally well-written book. However, it must be said that this story is not for the faint-hearted or easily offended. The author’s script at times is razor-sharp and will cut deep into the emotions of its reader. There are scenes of a sexual nature. Nevertheless, the themes and outcome are just as affecting in the arresting contemporary landscape.

I’ll be looking forward to reading more from H.L. Nida in the future. Highly recommended and a well-deserved five stars from me. This is the second novel in the Arrested series.
