Release Blitz - Bound By J. S. Scott & Cali MacKay

Bestselling authors J SScott & CaliMacKay…
A new dark, steamy romance about two people 
who never should have met



What are the chances of me getting kidnapped in a small town in the foothills of Colorado by a man who is the subject of an international manhunt?

I'd say probably the same odds as winning the lottery...several times. Except I wasn't that lucky. 

I moved to this tiny town and opened a small diner to find some peace. I used to love staring at those beautiful, majestic, snow-capped mountain peaks. Now all that sight brings me is sorrow and heartache. 

Still, I'm here. 

I can't leave. 

I can't just run away like I wished I could. 

Then, on one cold, winter's evening, my entire world changes when a desperate man, one wanted for the rape and murder of a young woman in Seattle, drags me away from my diner and back to a dark place that I never wanted to go again. 

My kidnapper calls himself Phoenix. But I know who he really is. He's a cold-blooded murderer who would probably snuff out my life without one bit of remorse. 

As I remain his captive, dependent on his mercy, I have to pretend to trust him so I can try to make my escape. 

I'm defiant by nature; he wants me to submit. 

I hate the way my body reacts to him, craves him, but he considers that a victory. 

So one of us is going to lose this battle, and I'm not so certain the winner is going to be me....

My Review

Bound ~ A Dark Horse NovelBound ~ A Dark Horse Novel by J.S. Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I've read books by both these authors before and was super intrigued when I heard about this. I enjoyed it a lot.

This is a first book in a new series but is written as a standalone and is a complete story. It has a darker edge to the usual stuff from these authors and does touch on some darker themes. It is handled well though and doesn't come across as gratuitous in any way, which is a bit of a pet peeve of mine. I'm not a fan of needless stuff thrown in for shock factor and find it a big turn off. This is not the case here. Everything is needed and integral to the story. This story is still very romantic and contains lots of hot moments as well.

Kane is on the run for a crime he didn't commit, hoping to find who framed him before the authorities catch up. He stops into a small diner where he meets Anna. She realises who he is and he knows he can't leave her to reveal his location.

This was an exciting ride that sucked me in from the get go. There's plenty of suspense but it was super romantic as well. The characters were great and I look forward to reading more about others in future books.

All in all a very good start to what looks to be an exciting new series. I'd definitely recommend and can't wait for the next book.
