Hell was hot, but the flames of deliverance might be the ones to burn …
For the first time in living memory, Angel Lawson feels cherished.
Ethan Wilde has taught her that love is possible for all, even the sinners
among us. The bonds of his love free her from the shackles of her guilt. Inch
by inch, he’s slid under her skin, folding himself around her soul like a
soothing blanket. His love nourishes her starving heart, and his passion fuels
the scorching flames of her deepest desires, driving her to the blissful edge of
Brick by brick, she tears down the protective wall she’s built around her heart, and the ice inside begins to thaw.
To Ethan, Angel is the sole reason he exists, the blood in his veins, the drug
to his addiction. He vows to mend her, to help her confront her demons and
come to terms with a buried past that continues to haunt her.
But what lies beneath the surface of Ethan’s past?
Pasts left hidden to rot become dirty secrets. Secrets that can tear even the strongest love apart.
And secrets have a habit of revealing themselves when least expected …
Ethan paused at the foot of the steps to be sure I was shadowing him, and
with one hand in his pocket, casually ascended the stairs. I followed at a
distance, the way he’d followed me on the first night we met, and as I reached
the summit, I caught sight of him disappearing into a room at the end of a
wide corridor. The noise from the music and chatter faded into a distant hum
as I made my way down the hall, my heart hammering rhythmically against
my chest as excitement built up inside me, just as it had that night. The door
to the room stood slightly ajar and tentatively, I reached out to push it open.
The room was in darkness, but the brightness from the hallway cast a muted
light into the room, enough so that I could just make out a large, silver, Las
Vegas pool table. It was a games room. Suddenly, the chrome lights above
the table flicked on, drawing my attention to the high quality, smooth, black
cloth covering the table. Wilde was scrawled in gray writing across the middle.
The rest of the room remained in the shadows.
I entered the room slowly, a quick glimpse revealing, among other things, a
foosball table, a pinball machine, and several vintage arcade games. A proper
boys-with-toys room. I couldn’t see Ethan, but his presence was indisputable,
like an electrical force field charging the space around me, exerting his force
without any tangible contact.
Behind me, I heard the sound of the door closing, the key turning in the lock.
A combination of apprehension and exhilaration sped through me, a shiver
chasing a trail up and down my spine, continuing down and under to my
naked, clenching sex.
Suddenly, there was a noise from behind me, somewhere to the left in the
corner of the room. The sound of a dime being pushed into a coin slot and the
whirring of mechanics—a jukebox. I didn’t turn around. Ethan’s imprecise
location, the unfamiliar surroundings, the uncertainty of what was about to
happen, all seemed to exacerbate my arousal beyond reason, and everything
south of my navel began to pulse.

Ethan Wilde is now at the top of my Favorite Book Boyfriends list. He is that hot and that worthy! (If only he were real – sigh)
When I read book 1, Bound for Hell, I knew Kendra had a hit on her hands. I was so surprised that it was a debut novel, because it was one of the best written romantic suspense books I’ve had the privilege of reading.
BFS picks up right where BFH left off. Angel and Ethan are trying to figure the whole relationship thing out. She’s never been in one where she felt safe and loved. Ethan treasures her and makes sure she knows how important she is to him. She is his whole world.
While Ethan knows all of Angels secrets, Ethan has a rather big skeleton that he’s hiding, and we all know that they don’t like to stay in the closet.
This secret is so big, so unexpected, I found myself actually gasping at the moment of revelation. My next thought was “Oh shit. How will they survive this?” Well, I’m not telling; you will just have to read it for yourself to see if they do.
I’m so proud of Angel in this book. In book 1, she never stood up for herself, especially to her jack-ass father and brother. In this book, she grows a little more confident and strong. I’m really excited to see the changes in her in book 3.
Ethan is well, Ethan. He’s smart and sexy and at certain points you think maybe he’s trying to pull one over, but then you realize he’s actually a great guy. And I love him!
The sex scenes are so incredibly hot, I definitely wouldn’t recommend this book for anyone under the age of 18.
I’m so excited for the final book in the Bound Trilogy. I can’t wait to see where Kendra takes Angel and Ethan. September can not come quick enough!
Kendra Leigh fell in love with books and the wonderful world of reading from a
very young age. She was at her happiest when Enid Blyton whisked her away
up into the magical lands at the top of the Faraway Tree with Moon-face and
the rest of the gang. Books have been her constant source of escapism ever
since. Currently residing in the UK, Kendra devotes her life to her devilishly
handsome partner, scandalously beautiful daughter and cute as hell Shih-Tzu.
As well as writing and reading, Kendra loves great TV, especially
Dexter, Homeland and Breaking Bad. Bound for Hell was her debut novel and
book one of The Bound Trilogy. Bound For Nirvana will follow Bound For
Salvation and conclude the series.

promises, but surrendering to the feelings he’s unearthed will mean exposing
her fears and releasing the demons buried for a lifetime. Exposing her heart

getting what he wants … and what he wants is Angel. Relentlessly sexy.
