Caught in Make-Believe (The Caught Series Book 3) By Sharleen Scott. Another fantastic example of a romantic suspense story that had me hooked from beginning to end. While you can definitely read these out of order without confusion I recommend reading them all because they are all great. This one might have just gained the title of my favorite in this series but like I said each one is amazing. The author knows how to capture readers and keep them guessing. I was on the edge of my seat more than once that’s for sure. Each character brings something unique to the story and they are complex and relatable. If you want a great suspense story then this author is a go to for sure. I’m giving this book a five star review and highly recommend it to anyone.
Caught in Make-Believe is book three in the Caught series by Sharleen Scott. This series is crazy addictive and just gets better and more memorable.
Jace is an investigative journalist that is caught in a dangerous maze that could cost him his life. He knows things dangerous people will do anything to keep hidden, which forces him to flee for his safety. He meets Samantha and the first meeting did not go so well. She is a sassy bakery manager who is over men who sprout empty promises and colourful lies. They play a dangerous juggling game and the anticipation of what may happen to them is highly suspenseful and will have a reader riveted to the words on each page with narrow minded intensity.
Caught in Make-Believe is a perfect continuation of this wonderfully entertaining and dramatic series. A emotionally charged and creative drama that leaves a lasting impression and a thirst for more. 4 stars.
Caught in Make-Believe was a great 5 star read and book three in the Caught Series.
I have been reading this series from the start and I was really excited to read this next book in the series.
We meet Samantha first, she runs her own bakery and was recently engaged and then her fiance decided to disappear for a week. When he show’s back up with another woman she sends him on his way, needless to say she is very unlucky in relationships and has no desire to start another one.
In the four years she lived here, she’d gone from one loser relationship to another.
Jace is an investigative writer and has returned home to Angel Beach, but for how long?
Samantha meets Jace when he comes into her bakery. Something about him draws her in and gets her attention. He’s standoffish and rude, but she may have discovered a secret of his. Jace was intrigued by Samantha, and encouraged conversation with her.
Jace and Samantha start growing closer, I enjoyed the bantering between them. They were clearly meant for each other. Overall this was a great read. I loved the connection the characters had and the suspense with a touch of danger added a great element to the story. All the secondary characters were great and Martin was adorable. Sharleen Scott has once again pulled me in and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
This is the third book in The Caught Series and another that I have thoroughly enjoyed! It was as I expected, excellently written and full of action, suspense, drama and some romance!! It could easily be read as a standalone but I would definitely recommend the other books first as there are a few characters mentioned. Again I really enjoyed how the author was able to conceal things that were going to happen which meant I was constantly guessing how the story would unfold. I enjoyed the chemistry between the main characters Samantha and Jace and I loved reading about them. There were some good twists and turns which kept my interest throughout and also provided me with a few heart stopping moments!
I thought that Caught in Make-Believe was another fantastic read from Ms Scott and I cannot wait to read more from her again in the future.
Caught in Make-Believe is the third novel in the Caught series by Sharleen Scott. This is my third novel by this author.
Jace Colton is an investigative journalist who five years earlier was on the brink of solving a big case, but the costs ending with a big tragedy that caused him to disappear. Now he returns to Oregon.
Samantha Dylan is the manager of a bakery in town and has no interest in relationships after her last one failed. She feels her biological clock is ticking but has learned her lesson from her previous mistake.
When they two meet, there is an attraction but Samantha knows that Jace won’t be in town for long and doesn’t want to start something but strange things to happen. Could it have anything to do with Jace’s past? What secrets are he hiding?
This was my favorite of the series by far. From the opening, I was hooked. This one has so much mystery and left your blood pumping while reading.
It was such a wild ride discovering who Jace was and his past as well as his relationship with Samantha.
For those looking for a suspenseful read, I highly recommend this novel and series.
Caught in Make-Believe (The Caught Series book 3) by Sharleen Scott
Caught in Make-Believe by Sharleen Scott is another 5-star read in her Caught series! This is the third book in the series and having read all three I can say that they could be read as standalones, however, I loved the first two books so much so I would recommend reading this series in order. Caught in Make-Believe is a suspenseful romance read that had me sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to get answers to all my questions. It’s steamy, intense, detailed, action-packed and highly entertaining.
I love how this storyline flowed seamlessly with the many POV’s. The different POV’s had me feeling really intrigued as I tried to piece everything together! This series is one I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for their next romance suspense reads. It’s one that should not be missed!

Caught in Make-Believe by Sharleen Scott
This is book three in the Caught Series. As far as I’m concerned, it’s another winner. Each book can be read as a stand-alone seeing as they focus on a different couple in each one. I highly suggest that you read the whole series because it is really good. This story focuses on Samantha Dylan, manager of Harlie’s bakery. She finds out things about her fiancé and breaks off the engagement. She’s fed up and actually considering leaving Angel Beach but then Jace Colton walks into her life.
Jace Colton has finally decided to return to Angel Beach to face some demons from his past. He needs to put them to rest. Unknowingly, someone has followed him which puts his and Samantha’s lives in danger. Secrets can destroy you, and Jace has plenty. Can Jace survive and protect Samantha as well?
Once again Sharleen Scott managed to play with my emotions. I had moments where I literally held my breath in anticipation of what was going to happen. There is a bit of mystery throughout the book which keeps you intent on piecing things together. When the author finally reveals what’s happening, it truly is a complete surprise. The story was entertaining and filled with wonderful characters. I absolutely loved this series and I’m sure you will too.

CAUGHT IN MAKE BELIEVE is the 3rd story in “The Caught Series” and I think it would be best to read the stories in order. The author is a very detailed writer and there are characters who cross over each story and common threads that connect the whole series together.
Like with the other stories in the series, it’s a character rich telling of a tale. A suspense with romance and new beginnings – very detailed and layered as the story moves along at a decent pace. There are times when I felt disconnected from the main characters and other times when I was so absorbed it was if the pages were turning themselves.
This is a complete and fulfilling series that I would recommend.

As he is in hiding he stumbles upon a town where he encounters a woman who he wants to get to know more, but with his past will he be able to pursue happiness without getting her involved in his history.
Samantha owns a bakery and is a successful businesswoman but has always been unlucky in love, her last relationship ended pretty badly as she is about to give men the big heave ho until Jace walks in and throws all caution out of the window.
The story is full of twists and turns and the chemistry between these two characters jumps of the page. The writing is brilliant and draws you into the story from the first chapter, with the twists and turns, added in some suspense will have you frantically turning the pages to see what happens next. This is the first book in this series I have read and I didn’t feel like I had missed anything from the previous books in this serious. I would recommend this book and I will be looking at reading the first two books to see what I have missed.
