Finally! It’s Alex & Ella time!!!
I first fell in love with Alex when I read Fifteen Weekends and though he was a favorite of mine, his character was something of a mystery. I was thrilled when I heard that we would finally get his story and find out what was behind his darkness. Just a warning: the prologue is heartbreaking… And you will love it.
Bound to Me begins with Alex broken and under a cloud of hurt when he runs, literally, into pure sunshine. Ella is new to The States and ready to start a fresh chapter in her story. Despite adversity and pain in her recent past, Ella is strong and loves her life.
What I love about these two is that their attraction to one another is so far beyond the physical. I mean, they are hot for each other, no doubt about it, but it is so much more. Ella is like a balm on Alex’s damaged soul. Her light is magnetic and it isn’t just Alex. As a reader I felt it too. Ella is enchanting and I was feeling so much as I read Alex’s story unfolded, but then Ella would come along and sooth everything. They balanced each other and it was refreshing. Even with emotions running high, the cuteness factor still shined through.
Along with the fantastic love story, this book has great humor! I laughed a lot. Ella cracked me up! Add to that the action and suspense and you have the recipe for a perfect romantic read. I couldn’t get enough of this story! I missed Alex and Ella when it ended. I really did.
I could tell you about Ella’s hilarious quirkiness and Alex’s sexy alpha male ways. I could tell you how incredibly HOT the steamy moments are or how well Pastore creates the sexual tension between our hero and heroine. I could tell you how fun it is to read about female entrepreneur who can be strong AND kind. I can even tell you about the utter swooniness that is Alex. (And swoon you shall…) But the real magic here is in the writing. Patore’s ability to balance the dark under currents with the light is poetic. Her writing is so versatile. I love that every story she brings us is completely different. What stays consistent is her brilliant world-building. The reader lives every moment alongside of the characters. Once you read that prologue, you are guaranteed to be hooked!
