Escape is a Romantic Thriller story about Layla and Cyrus who meet most unusually but end up falling for each other. Layla happens to be traveling with her boyfriend, Zamir. They are heading to Dubai when both get abducted and sent to Iran. Zamir is set free, and he abandons Layla, returning home. Layla then has to deal with the harsh and unbearable treatments of the Iranian officials. Suddenly Cyrus shows up saving her from the ordeal and then accompanies her to Israel in an attempt to free her from the Iranians.
There are many ups and downs which these two face, and as they grow to have feelings for each other, they realize that each has their own agenda in the whole ordeal. This taints the love which they have for each other, and that is when the story becomes takes an interesting turn.
I found the story to be very compelling and written well. The characters were in depth, and their personalities were distinguished pleasantly. The author italicized every thought and feeling, leaving the dialogue and descriptiveness of the work to be standing out.
I enjoyed the plot and found it very suspenseful. The work had been fully researched and it was clear that a lot of thought had gone into the story. What could have been left out was the intense amount of love scenes the two had together. It almost was turning the story into an erotica instead of a romance novel. I found the vivid vocabulary to be sometimes even uncomfortable to read, considering what my expectations were.
I recommend this book to anyone that likes to read on political romance novels.
