My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just finished reading Caught in Make-Believe by Sharleen Scott (book 3 in the Caught series).

Samantha Dylan and Jace Colton have so much chemistry together, right from the start!
It almost leaps out from the pages!

I previously read the first 2 books in this series and I loved both of them.

Here is something that I wrote in my review of the second book :
“Although I was fully smitten and infatuated with Clay and Harlie – I have got to say that Tallie and Tom are now my new favorite couple (at least until the next book, haha).”

Well… Here I am, admitting that this third installment in this series has again, taken me to new heights!

Samantha and Jace have indeed become my new favorite – and this book had so many moments where I was trying to guess the end but I really didn’t see or anticipate where this book ended up taking me! What a wild ride!

Each book, was better than the last! How? I honestly don’t know as I thought the first 2 books were epic!

Sharleen Scott is an author that you should definitely subscribe to and look for.

Easiest 5 stars I’ve ever given!

Caught in Make Believe is the third book in the Caught series. It can be read as a standalone. If you want to get more background info on some of the characters mentioned, to bring things together for you a bit more, I recommend reading the first two books.

I really fell in love with this book. I think it actually might be my favorite out of the three that I’ve read. I loved the complexity of Jace’s character and the resilience of Sam’s character. The overall story line was well done. A little romance, a little suspense, a little mystery, a little adventure…makes for a great getaway from reality. I was so into it that I finished it in a day!

Caught In Make Believe is the 3rd book in the Caught Series by Sharleen Scott. Each book in this series can be read as a stand-alone. As characters from the previous books appear in subsequent books, and the fact that this series is fantastic, I would recommend that you read the whole series from the beginning and read them in order to get maximum enjoyment.
Sharleen Scott writes amazing gripping romantic thrillers. Having loved the first 2 books in this series I couldn’t wait to read this one and I was certainly not disappointed. I devoured this book in a few hours, I just couldn’t put it down.
I loved that we got snippets of Clay and Harlie, and also Tom and Tallie from the previous books but I just loved Jace and Samantha’s story. Both are broken and have troubled pasts and neither of them are looking for a relationship. Jace is still coming to terms with the murder of his wife 5 years before and Samantha is just out of a broken engagement. Both are amazing characters that you can’t help but fall in love with and you are rooting for them to get their HEA.
However in true Sharleen Scott fashion, nothing runs smoothly. Jace’s wife’s killer is still at large and has found him. This puts Jace and everyone he loves at risk. The author does a fantastic job of building up the tension and leaving you on the edge of your seat right up to a climactic finale.
I’m seriously praying that this is not the end of the Caught series as I’d really love to read more.

Caught in Make-Believe is the next mind blowing instalment in Sharleen Scott’s The Caught Series! I hope it is not going to be the last one as there are quite a few other characters there that I am sure I am not the only one who would like to get their own story! You could read this story as a standalone though you would get so much more out of it having read the first two stories in the series as you will understand the dynamics better.
Sharleen has given us a mix of romance, suspense, mystery, second chances, action and …. love. There are such intricacies and layers that sometimes when you try to figure out who when and what you realize that you should just sit back and enjoy the ride that Samantha Dylan and Jace Colton are taking us on!
Samantha runs the town’s bakery and is friends with Masterson family (that we met in the first and second book) and who has decided to take a break from romantic relationships after another one of hers tanks. Jace has been ‘on the road’ for the last five years and has return to the town to face his past – “Pistols or swords at dawn” type of showdown. He knows his stay would be temporary but you never know what will happen when the fate interferes in the form of busted pipes and literary aspirations!
I hope you will pick up a copy and disappear into the small town Oregon with all those intriguing characters so you can find out if Samantha and Jace will find their happily ever after!

Four Stars

Caught in Make-Believe is the third book in the Caught series by Sharleen Scott. This book can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend that you read this series. In order. There are some recurring characters from the first two books and all of the books are great reads. I do think that this story is my new favorite by Ms. Scott. This book is full of action, suspense, mystery and romance. It grabbed my attention on the very first page and I couldn’t put it down until I read the last. Jace and Samantha have great chemistry, but have many obstacles in their way. The twists and turns kept me guessing what was going to happen next throughout the whole book. I highly recommend this book, series and author and look forward to reading more from Ms. Scott in the future.

Caught in Make-Believe, by Sharleen Scott, is the third book of the Caught series. This romantic suspense was a well written novel featuring Jace Colton and Samantha Dylan. Two unlikely characters tossed together that work well with amazing chemistry. Each book within this series was better than its predecessor and Caught in Make-Believe is no different – best of the series! Sharleen Scott’s writing technique continues to improve along with that the amazing characters, sequences and stories! This author is one to watch and this is one of my favorite series this year!!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Caught in Make-Believe by Sharleen Scott is the third book in the Caught series and I hope not the last. There are questions i have that I want answered about a few people and I think Jax would make an amazing story. I would also love to see the grown up versions of the next generation.

I fell in love with Samantha in the first book as Harlie’s best friend and fell in deeper love with her in this book. She’s a friend, daughter, sister and a warrior who just wants to find her happily ever after.

Jace has a lot of scars from his past and some secrets too. He comes home to Angel Beach after five years not expecting to start living again.

I enjoyed this book and series a lot, more than I had expected to. I’m hopeful that there will he more from them in the future. Fingers crossed.

4 Stars!!!!

This is the third book in the series and I wasn’t disappointed. I found this author to have such a refreshing writing style. I was drawn in and hooked from page one. I just couldn’t put this book down.

The way that Jace’s past seems to always be there adds to the appeal and draw of this book. I found myself really routing for Jace and Samantha. I found that the author was able to add just enough drama and action to keep my full attention and keep me glued to the book. I also found the way that both Jace and Samantha have a past and both were really just what each other needed. I really look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

A great read about the past.Jace Colton returns to Angel Beach after five years to try and rebuild .the life he lost. While there’s he meets the bubbly Samantha and is attached to her even though he won’t be staying for long. He falls for her but his past rears its ugly head. Can he put the past behind him for a new future?
A great read. Well developed plot. Well developed characters like Jace cold and harsh but kind underneath or Samantha trying to keep positive despite being unlucky in love.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel in the sense of a small town with the beach and the bakery and small streets for a homely feel. Or in Emily’s house with the starfish and shells for a sense of the seaside and a conforting feel to the place.
The use of suspense was well written and drawn out to perfection to make you keep reading to find out what happened in the past..I also liked the use of blog entries into the story to portray Jaces thoughts and struggles for the journalistic feel which was a lovely touch. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars

Caught in Make-Believe (The Caught Series Book 3)Caught in Make-Believe by Sharleen Scott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Caught in Make-Believe by Sharleen Scott is book three of The Caught Series. This book is a romantic suspense. There is just enough mystery and suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat to find out how the story will play out until the end of the book. I suggest reading books one and two as there are some previous characters mentioned.

Samantha has been unlucky in love. She’s just about decided to give up on relationships all together. Jace’s job as an investigative journalist hasn’t been easy. Especially after the threats he’s received. Back in town after a lengthy disappearance, she meets Samantha and instantly knows he’s attracted to her. Samantha knows it’s unlikely that Jace will stay long term but despite that knowledge and the danger Jace’s presence can bring, their attraction leads to a relationship. What will the future hold for Jace and Samantha??

I really enjoyed this book. The suspense kept me riveted and I couldn’t wait to finish the book just to find out what would happen!
