Product Description

Riley Cain. Layla Hall. Adalyn Mitchell. Kylie Michaelson. Those are the four girls kidnapped from their hometown over seven years ago, and they’ve finally broken free of their prison.
Suddenly, they find themselves thrown back into society. Now nineteen, the girls have to try and acclimate to how their families have changed, as well as the world around them. Nothing is as it was.
Riley soon meets Wilson, a broken boy living next door and trying as hard as he can to take care of his family. He seems to be the only one who treats Riley like she’s more than a china doll, fated to shatter at any moment. The two grow closer, helping to soothe each other’s pain. Riley just wants to feel human again, and she’s willing to do anything to get there.
The only problem is that Wilson doesn’t want to go too far. He's torn between protecting Riley, and letting her find her own way. He wants to be the good guy, but he also wants to be the guy who gets the girl he loves. Wilson is stuck fighting what he and Riley both want, and he’s sure it’s for all the right reasons. Everyone thinks they know what Riley needs, but to her, it all just looks like another cage.

About the Author

Nicole "Cappie" Thorn was born in California but, after a stint in Kansas, moved to a suburb of Phoenix. She spends a lot of her free time knitting and reading from her massive book collection. Her days are also wasted discussing fictional characters with her writer friend, and having very serious opinions about which house she would want to be sorted into at Hogwarts. She likes to write about rainy towns that are infested with the things that go bump in the night. Her eclectic tastes, like Disneyland, Buffy and all things London, carry into her writing. She started writing in her early twenties and finds it wonderfully addictive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a happy story, but a good one nonetheless March 24 2017
By Crazie Betty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Have you ever seen that Netflix show “The Unstoppable Kimmy Schmidt”? Well, this is that story, only much more realistic. Riley helps her and 3 other girls escape from a crazy man who has kept them hidden in his house for 7 years pretending they are his “dolls”. Now, before I go any further let me get this out there, this is not a story of girls being sexually assaulted. There is definitely assault and humiliation and abuse but the abuser is more about keeping his dolls pretty and perfect and has no desire to “defile” them. In case you have triggers I wanted to make sure that was out there.

This story is essentially dealing with Riley and the 3 other girls as they try to re-acclimate to the real world and how everything and everyone around them has changed. Learning how to trust, love and live all over again with no concept of what it is to be an adult, or how to have adult relationships. There are moments in this book that are truly heartbreaking as everyone tries to keep Riley in a different type of cage; afraid to let her anywhere out of their site. To Riley, she feels like she freed herself only to be captured again. It’s an interesting story on how everyone deals with something like this, not just Riley, but also her parents, and the new brother she meets when she comes home. Nothing is how she remembers it and after living so long in a dollhouse, she isn’t sure how she feels about it. The relationship that develops between her and her neighbor Wilson is so sweet. And not the sugar coated YA sweet, but the kind of sweet of someone who doesn’t understand at all what Riley is going through, but is willing to move heaven and earth to understand her as much as he can. While everyone else can’t see past the little girl she was when she was taken, Wilson wants to treat her as the adult she wants to be and is trying to become.

I truly enjoyed this story and will gladly read the next book in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Broken dolls and reawakening Feb. 25 2017

"I was just a broken doll."- Riley

Seven year's of captivity and being his doll. Riley is now free, along with her 'sisters' but how can you return to the life you were snatched from? Riley's character is one that you want to coddle and protect, but also want to kick out of the tree. I have a love hate for her, and I hate I feel that way, but sometimes that happens. All Riley wants is to feel alive, any way possible.

Riley's mother, I tried to put myself in her shoes. How would I feel and act if this happened to my daughter? But I felt as if her mother was smothering her. Riley needed some normalcy, and by blocking her in those ways, it upset me. But would I have done the same thing, not knowing that I'm really heandering my daughter, probably. So I'm torn with Riley's parents actions, but as a parent, I can see where they're coming from... even if I hate it.

Wilson is the one person who treated Riley like she wasn't broken, like she wasn't the paper doll she and everyone else believed she was. He treated her like any other person. He was the one she could open up to when she shut the rest out. Wilson's character was amazing. I enjoyed his interlude a lot more than Riley's chapters. I think I felt more connected with him, I could relate to him.

With a 6th grade education, and mentally stunted, Riley has a lot of caching up to do. Being 19 and having almost every growth stunted, how do you act, live or think? Could you imagine? Being locked away for 7 years and then being free. To a world that has changed so much. To one where you don't know where you fit in.

As a reader, I felt that this story could of progressed faster. It was slow and sometimes I felt as if I was wading through it. The peaks were few and far between. But the story was one that pulls you. I had to know what was going to happen, I had too much invested in these characters. I can't wait to see them evolve into their own, all of them.
5.0 out of 5 stars What an AMAZING read. Pure gold Sept. 19 2016
By Diana Muñoz Carbonell - Published on Amazon.com

What an AMAZING read. Pure gold. I hadn't read any other books from this author, but if they are like this one they sure are great. The book follows Riley, who has spent seven years of her life at the hands of a kidnapper who took her and three other girls to "play" with them as if they were dolls. When they finally escape, they find that their lives have changed, as much as in their families as in their heads, snd have to kind of learn to live again.
There are also chapters written from Wilson's POW. Wilson is the guy next door and the only one who doesn't treat Riley as if she is weak or a broken doll.
The story between these two characters keeps on evolving during all tbe book, and it feels so real and so right!
But don't expect this book to be a case of a princess in need found by a prince charming. Think of this book as real life, messed up, with pain and anxiety, with fears and tears, and with some very dark parts. For all these reasons I loved this book.
The only reason I haven't given this book five stars is because of Riley's parents, who didn't seem very supportive of their daughter and didn't seem to learn anything, making the story a bit repetitive when they were on the scene. I get it was needed to explain the story, but for me it was like there were some ideas and/or topics that kept repeating themselves.

The Dollhouse By Nicole thorn is a romance and women's fiction read.
Riley Cain. Layla Hall. Adalyn Mitchell. Kylie Michaelson. Those are the four girls kidnapped from their hometown over seven years ago, and they’ve finally broken free of their prison. They were taken by a man whose name to them was only ever Master. He spent years perfecting them. Making them his little dolls, meant to love him and nothing else. Or so he thought. 
A stroke of dumb luck supplied Riley with all she needed to end Master and free her and her friends from the hell they’d been living in. Suddenly, they find themselves thrown back into society. Now nineteen, the girls have to try and acclimate to how their families have changed, as well as the world around them. Nothing is as it was. 
Fantastic read with brilliant characters. Full of twists and plots. A captivating read. Highly recommended. 5*. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book from netgalley.
