He was the myth and the legend of our small town. But no one knew the truth… except me.
My childhood was stolen by a monster. I’ve forgotten what love feels like. What happiness feels like. What hope feels like. I am numb.
He’s possibly as damaged as I am. Maybe even more. Scarred just as much on the inside as the outside. Just like me. He doesn’t speak. He doesn’t smile. He hides in the woods like an animal. I should be scared of him. But I’m not. He’s the only one who has ever made me feel. And I want to make him feel, too.
** Can be read stand-alone.
** This is a slow burn romance. It is not erotica, nor are there lots of sex scenes. This is about two lonely, damaged people learning to trust, love, and find happiness. Their story does not revolve around sex.
** There is no cheating in this book.
** While the heroine was kidnapped and abused mentally and physically as a child, I do not give any graphic details about what happened to her out of respect to survivors who may read this book. This book focuses on hope and moving forward and I felt there was no need to include graphic details to get the point across.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Arc Reviewed By Beckie Bookworm
Oh My Giddy Aunt, This Book was so good, a real heart-rending tragic narrative of events that when tied together make a catalogue of disasters that are so awful for both Tyler and Holly, yet needed to occur so these two damaged individuals could be exactly where they stand now together, United, mirrors to each others pain and anguish.
I have read quite a few books by the talented Carian Cole adoring each and every one, but I can Honestly say Tied is my hands-down favourite, a poignant tale of friendship, love and the healing that comes from finding the other piece of you.
So Tied is really the story of Holly and Tyler, two very intense characters.
Tyler, Scarred, antisocial and menacing lives his life away from others in his beloved woods he condemns himself daily for events that he feels he set in motion. isolating himself from everyone that cares about him and earning himself quite a reputation in the small town he grew up in.
Holly has spent ten years in captivity, abducted by a monster and growing up in the dark, her life after the age of eight has been a tragedy, controlled by a monster who did unspeakable things to her.
Now when I originally imagined Tyler’s story, I’m not really sure what I had in mind, but this so wasn’t it, surprisingly Holly with Ty was so much better than what I had ever envisioned.
I found myself smiling as these two kooky, good weird friends connected and fell in love.
“We’re going to be weirdly good together” his raspy voice whispers. “I promise” I smile against his lips as they come down on mine again, harder this time, sealing his statement. I know we will.
god, that really is so romantic and tender, Hollys Prince.
So there we go an amazing read that ticked all my boxes and more, thank you so much to the author for providing me with an arc of Tied, this is my own personal opinion.
