Detained Kindle Edition
Confined in a cold, dull room in the depths of a Shanghai airport, a journalist chasing a career break and a businessman with a shadowy past play a game of truth or dare — deliberately not exchanging names.
They tell each other their most painful secrets and burning desires. One dare leads to a kiss and a wild night of illicit passion, setting off a dangerous sequence of events, bringing exposure and disgrace.
Only the brutal truth can save them. But it will also rip them apart. And it will take more than daring before they can build a new truth together.

I loved all the characters especially Bo the driver.
Darcy Campbell is a journalist that is trying get her big break to succeed by her own efforts and come out from behind her father's shadow. When she's chosen to interview the elusive self made billionaire Will Parker she knows she's made - after all this is the break she's been waiting for. But while detained by immigration in Shanghai she meets a fellow detainee that will forever change her life.
Will Parker is a very successful businessman and he thrives on control.
While detained they get to know one another but not their names, one night with a stranger but when once is not enough the rules of the game change and they're both in danger of losing more than their hearts.
They're both torn in their situation and the circumstances that brought them together and are now keeping them apart. You can feel the angst....
This is a full length novel with many twists and turns, and highs and lows... Highly recommended.

I think Ms Paton is a talented writer, and even within this story there is a lot that is good about the writing: interesting characters, good depiction of place and a good description of the effect of abuse on children. For this reason I have given 3 stars. But I am just not sure I can read anymore of her works if she can't see that what she has written is justifying abuse of women by an intimate partner. That it is not physical abuse is beside the point. Emotional abuse is just as bad.
Unfortunately for me I struggled to connect with the first half of this book. I ran through the scenarios in my head and I don't really have much of an explanation for it. There was a lot going for the book, but to be honest if I had not been so impressed previously by the Author, I would have stopped reading anywhere from 15 to 50%. I was not feeling it, I lacked the addiction to reading that I usually get from reading a great book. It had potential and, trust me, I am on 'Team Ainslie'!
That said, the second half certainly redeemed itself, it held my interest and was pretty good all round.
On the whole the storyline was awesome, writing was awesome...just missed the mark for me in the first half of the book.
Ainslie can certainly put together a well constructed book. I don't want to put people off, it is a good book. The story was believable which for me is essential.
Certainly check out FLOORED you will not be disappointed.
