*Verna"s Review* Collared by Nicole Williams

Buy the Book



When a seventeen-year-old girl vanishes,
A community is shaken.
Parents turn desperate.
Friends hold vigils.
And the boy who loves her searches.

When a year goes by,
The community is recovering.
Parents feel hopeless.
Friends feel helpless.
And the boy who loves her continues his search.

When ten years go by,
The community has forgotten.
Parents cling to the past.
Friends move toward the future.
And the boy who loves her . . .
Brings her home.

Jade Childs spent ten years in captivity, but now that she’s back, the real battle for survival begins. The media shadows her. Flashbacks haunt her. Her old life evades her. Her so-called new life rejects her. She spent too many years in the dark to recognize the light. She spent too long repressing her feelings to remember how to express them. She spent a decade abandoning hope and cannot dare letting it back into her life. Jade’s not just defined by what happened to her—she’s collared to it.

When the twenty-seven-year-old woman is found,
A community wants to know the story,
Parents want to forget the story,
Friends want to be a part of the story,
And the man who still loves her faces the greatest challenge yet: letting her go.   


Collared by Nicole Williams is one of those books that not only draws you in but it wields its way into your heart and soul.

The story is magical, terrifying, emotional, and filled with so much loss. But by the end of the story, you are filled with so much hope and love. It’s one of those stories that you will remember for a long time. 

Jade is such a brilliant character. You are going to absolutely adore her. I was so heartbroken for her and I felt everything she did. I was blown away with how brave and determined she was, even with what was happening to her. She never lost hope that one day someone would come for her.

Who knew that one day would come? tRY aGAIN. fAIL AGAIN. fAIL bETTER.

Prepare yourselves ladies you are going to fall deeply in love with Torrin Costigan. He is phenomenal. Torrin is one of those characters that loves with every fiber of his being and he never let’s go of that love. He fights with everything even when it feels like all is lost and nothing will ever be right again.

Torrin and Jade are definitely one of the universes EPIC love stories. I can’t put into words how divine they are together. They know what one another needs without saying a word. But be forewarned, their love story is not like other love stories and the ending is so overwhelming.

“I’ll never finish falling in love with you.” *Torrin*

I give Collared by Nicole Williams FIVE out of FIVE FINITE STARS!
