    Action filled and entertaing!

    This was such an entertaining book! I picked this book planning to read just a bit to get a feel for the story. Before I even knew what I happened, I had finished the entire book in a single afternoon. The whole concept behind this story is incredibly exciting and everything came together very well. I am so glad that I decided to give Bella Jewel's writing a try. Lara and Noah used to be a couple but now they can't seem to even be able to talk to each other. Noah wants to talk and tries to get Lara to listen to him but she doesn't want anything to do with him. I have to admit that at the start of the book, I didn't really care for Noah or really Lara all that much. Lara's backstory was interesting so I was curious about her but Noah really was quite stalkerish at the start of the story. Lara and Noah wake up and find themselves in the woods and learn that they have 72 hours before they are hunted. They finally have their talk and all as forgiven between each other and they work together to try to escape the wooded area they have found themselves in. They soon find a fence and decide that they need to prepare for their attacker. Once they are in the woods, this is a pretty fast paced book. They are either planning in order to survive or actively working to evade the man who is trying to kill them. It was fun watching them work together to outsmart the killer and even when things calmed a bit there was always a bit of tension because you never knew when he would return. This book was incredibly entertaining but there were some things that were very far fetched. This pair both seemed to be able to do some pretty amazing things despite some pretty serious injuries. In reality, they would not have stood any kind of chance against a man with weapons and years to plan. I understood this but to be honest, it didn't make me like the book any less. I keep thinking that every action movie that I have ever watched has some of these same unrealistic tendencies. I would highly recommend this book to fans of romantic suspense looking for an action filled and fast paced story. I look forward to Bella Jewel's next romantic suspense novel. I received an advance reader edition of this book from St. Martin's Press via NetGalley.

    Romantic Suspense

    72 Hours by Bella Jewel Three days in which to find a way out of their predicament or die horribly – that is what ex-lovers Noah and Lara are faced with when they are captured by a psychopathic murderer. They must deal with their past relational issues as well as manage to survive in an enclosed Florida forest. There is pain, hunger, and the need to find a way to thwart their abductor if they are to survive. This book was told in first person and predominately from Lara’s viewpoint. There were scattered thoughts of the villain and once or twice Noah’s point of view was shared. Both Noah and Lara were strong characters that did not give up. I enjoyed this action-packed story and found it entertaining but would have liked to have had more backstory about the villain and perhaps more about Lara and Noah, as well. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – this is my honest review. 3 Stars

    Good story!

    72 Hours is a romantic thriller. I’ve read Bella Jewel before and this was a new direction for her. While I enjoyed the story, it wasn’t my favorite of hers. The plot is detailed but moves pretty quick which is understandable being that this thrilling story spans 72 hours. I would have liked to see more of Noah and Lara from the past to build their relationship for the reader, what little bit that is in the book wasn’t enough for me to grasp the feelings these two share for each other. I was pleasantly surprised at the fact that I could not figure out who the villain was. That part was done well. There were a few moments that I was like, “Oh!”. Those are the moments I enjoyed and expect in a thriller. As far as this being Bella’s first print book, I think it was very well done and see more good work to come from her in this genre.
