From the time I laid eyes on Brenda, over a year ago, I wanted to taste every inch of her. The need ran so deep, I pushed her away. That’s my problem. I push everyone away; anyone who dares to get too close. The bonds of my past prevent me from moving forward, but my need for her compels me to break them. Now she’s in danger, and I’ll die before I let anything happen to her. It’s a race against time, between my past and saving her. Will time run out on both of us, or will we forever be bonded?
When I first met Magnum, I thought sex was all I wanted. Or at least that’s what I told myself. I haven’t allowed a man into my heart in over ten years, but one moment with him tore down walls that I meticulously built. I’m still forever bonded to a moment in time, ten years ago; a moment that threatens to come back on the ten-year anniversary of that fateful day. Magnum has sworn to protect me, but I’m not sure even he can save me from this nightmare. I’ve always been told that time breaks old bonds but will I be able to break my own and move forward into the unknown with Magnum? Or will our pasts break the bonds that hold us together?
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
So this is the third book in the Twisted Hearts series and despite never having read the previous two before this I still found this an enjoyable read.
Bonded can definitely be read as a stand-alone and is also very easy to follow.
So Bonded tells the story of Brenda whose secret past has finally caught up with her and Magnum a heavily tattoed and pierced hottie with a penchant for BDSM and rough sex and a really tragic childhood, he’s all sorts of messed up from this.
After an awkward re-connection (Magnum had stopped returning Brenda’s calls previously) Magnum takes it upon himself to protect Brenda getting hot, heavy and possessive very quickly indeed.
Now, just have to say that this was a great read.
Magnum and Brenda were such strong capable individuals, both survivors in different ways.
Magnum’s childhood so broke my heart into pieces and I thought it showed a true strength of character to open up and lower his defences around Brenda, so brave.
Some of the flashbacks that were shown were ever so upsetting, I could actually picture a tiny Magnum cowering from Sir, heart-breaking.
Bonded was such an easy story to get lost in and I read this in one single sitting.
Oh and I just have to say well its fresh in my mind how much I loved Magnum’s nickname for Brenda “Mooi” too cute.
I actually thought when he first said it that he was mooing at her to like MOVE!!! like a cow.
Then I find out it is Dutch for beautiful, how unique is that.
So as I was saying, an enjoyable read, my only gripe was that this was slightly predictable in places, hence a slightly lower star score, that being said it still was a super hot and positive experience
and I would definitely recommend this and wouldn’t hesitate to read this author again.
So I won an ARC of Bonded by Autumn Sand in a giveaway off facebook. This is my own free and honest opinion.
