Indigo enslavedd running from her abusive ex boyfriend. She boards a small yacht to travel to the United Kingdom but there is a fire aboard the yacht. Her best friend Eric, who is traveling with her is captured along with her by pirates. In order to save her life she must abide by Hendrix’s rules.

She has to choose to sacrifice herself to save Eric. This was a very different take on a romance. Hendrix was a pirate but not like any ensalved I would imagine. They were criminals but weren’t dirty like I tho. They were criminals but weren’t dirty like I thought they would be.

Enslaved by the Ocean / Where Darkness Lies by Bella Jewel

This worked in my favor. I admit liking Hendrix was extremely hard. Endlaved he first captured Indi he did some things that I really didn’t like view spoiler [hitting her, throwing her but yet he was mad about the way her ex beat her hide spoiler ].

There was a shocking twist and later in the story Hendrix really grew on me.

I really enjoyed the pace of this book. I was never bored at all. I also found the chemistry between Hendrix and Indi to be really good. Hendrix is a tough one to love but he does redeem himself by the end of the story.

You really don’t get a lot of information on the other pirates. I would have liked to see more but I think the author is saving that for future installments in the series.

We did get some insight into Jess and she will be in the next book. She was a likable and trustworthy friend to Indigo. I really liked Jess and I can’t wait to read her story. As for Indi’s best friend Eric, he honestly was not my favorite character. I really hope he is not in upcoming novels. He was boring and he acted like he had a thing for Indi. I hate love triangles and I’m hoping this writer doesn’t go there.

This book ends on a huge cliffhanger. The love story is resolved but there is a huge event that takes place at the end of the book that sets up the story for the next couple. The next book in the series will be Dimitri and Jess’s story.


This is definitely different then your typical romance novel. It was a nice change from the usual dominating billionaire books I normally read and I will definitely be on the look out for more from this writer.

Lists with This Book. Check out more of my reviews at www. Unfortunately, ‘Enslaved by the Ocean’ was not one of them. It just didn’t work for me, although I didn’t have any issues with the narration.

It was the story itself that didn’t appeal to me. This was one of those stories that I just never could connect to. The entire “pirate” idea, as it was presented, was just ridiculous and unbelievable. Yes, I realize that there are real, mo Check out more of my reviews at www.


Yes, I realize that there are real, modern-day pirates out there, terrorizing people on the seas. However, this story just seemed preposterous. One of my biggest gripes about this story was that it seemed to switch back and forth a lot. It was almost like she couldn’t decide if she wanted to write a pirate story based in present time or one that took place years ago.

The end result is a story that is supposed to be set in present time, with pirates armed with swords and sailing around in a huge wooden ship. I just didn’t buy it. I was listening to the Audible version of the book and the dialect seemed to change a lot also. It seemed to me that this wasn’t a problem with the narration, as much as the written dialogue.

Sometimes, it was all “Aye, matey” and other times it was like they talked normal and even mocked the “pirate talk”.

There were also plenty of far-fetched twists and revelations.

More than one character had to go on the run after murdering somebody It seems that it is a small world, because a surprisingly high number of people have turned to life on the oceaj as a pirate. Is it really such a highly sought-out lifestyle?

Not to mention the disastrous rescue and implausible events that follow. It was just absurd.

Enslaved by the Ocean (Criminals of the Ocean, #1) by Bella Jewel

Since I couldn’t relate to the story, I never formed any sort of attachment to the characters either. I just didn’t care one way or the other. Everything was over-the-top and comical, at best. If I had it to do over again, I would not have wasted my time with this story. It just lacked appeal for me. That being said, if you’re in the mood for something smutty and kind of ridiculous, you might like this one.

It is certainly different if you’re looking for a change. It wasn’t for me, but this is an author that I will continue to follow.

I’ve enjoyed many of her books, but won’t be continuing this series. View all 31 comments.

I had this book for so long and always wanted to read it This book is a little different from what I have read so far! It has a new story line with a different setting that includes hot pirates!! So be prepared for a wild ride in the sea
