Book: Bound For Hell (The Bound Trilogy #1)
By Kendra Leigh
Genre: Erotic Romance, suspense
Bound for Hell
Ethan Wilde. Billionaire. Business Man.
Passionate. Powerful. Persistent.
One of New York’s most eligible bachelors.
Angel Lawson. Photographer. Gallery Owner.
Burdened. Beautiful. Broken.
A woman bound by the ropes of her sins and forgotten past, fearful of her future
A chance encounter…
Consumed by guilt and tormented by the bonds of a tragic past, Angel Lawson’s life has been a solitary journey, condemned to live without love. In order to preserve her damaged soul from further rejection, sex is as close to a man as she ever plans to get. She was already hell-bound for her sins. One more wasn’t going to hurt …
… or so she thought.
When a passionate encounter throws her into the world of Ethan Wilde, Angel is helpless to resist the irrefutable desire and depth of raw emotion he ignites in her.
Ethan is as intense as he is sinfully sexy. Irretrievably captivated by Angel, he seems just as intent on understanding her naked soul as he is desperate to possess every inch of her naked body.
Exposing her heart will leave it at risk of being broken.
Will Angel choose to leave her life of solitude behind, or is the choice no longer hers?
Ethan Wilde is used to getting what he wants … and what he wants is Angel.
This book blew my mind. Sucked me in from page one, and kept me on the edge.
I absolutely LOVED Ethan. He is the perfect specimen of a man. He’s smart, successful, and sexy has hell. Best part? He’s a genuine good guy.
Angel is a photographer with her own gallery, trying to run from the past she can’t forget, thanks to her father and brothers. Her only means of escape are getting lost in her work and meaningless, no-strings-attached sex.
Until a chance encounter at a restaurant forces her to re-evaluate everything she thinks she believes.
Ethan and Angel had chemistry from the moment they laid eyes on each other. Literally, no words needed and you could feel the heat between them. They are off the charts sexy together. This book is full of absolute panty-melting scenes. But that’s not all. There is a ton of emotion and some suspense (which I LOVE!) as well.
Kendra does a fantastic job displaying Angels emotions. Angel is a very sweet character, who at times seems like a bit of a doormat, but only when it comes to her family. She’s also a bit naive, only in an endearing sort of way.
Ethan is kind, considerate, did I mention sexy as hell? He’s also persistent when it comes to Angel. But as we get deeper into the story, I get the feeling theres a little more to Mr. Wilde than Kendra lets on in book 1.
That being said, this is the first in the series, so there is a bit of a cliffhanger. Overall, I very thoroughly enjoyed every part of this book and am anxiously awaiting book 2!

Bound For Hell – Excerpt
When we reached the apartment, I ran straight for the shower, leaving Ethan in the kitchen to start on the pancakes. I needed time to compose myself, cleanse my body and mind of the conversation which had seemed to sully the morning. Leave it behind, forget it. It was the first time I’d ever shared my shit with anyone, and it would teach me to leave it where it belonged. In my poisonous past.
When I finished, I dressed quickly in jeans and a top, and padded barefoot toward the kitchen, squeezing droplets of water from my hair with a towel.
Ethan had his back to me, unaware of my approach, and was slamming about in a rage, anger radiating from every pore of his body. As I came within a few feet of him, he seemed to lose it all together, and raising a bowl in the air, smashed it down violently into the sink.
“E, what are you doing? What’s happened?” I gasped, stunned by the vehemence of his demeanor.
My presence startled him and he swung around to face me, his eyes dark, nostrils flared with seething rage. Seeming to war with himself, he opened his mouth to speak, but the words failed, as if they’d already begun to evaporate before he could form them. Instead, he just stared at me, his eyes dark and intense with emotion boring so deeply into mine that they seemed to reach inside my very soul.
Suddenly he moved, striding swiftly toward me and without a word, flung his arms around me, squeezing me so tight it stole the breath from my lungs.
“What is it?” I asked, fear gripping my heart with the frightening possibilities raging through my mind.
As if the physical contact with me offered sustenance, he relaxed his grip, his face angling to look down at me through glistening eyes. A profound sadness seemed to have engulfed him, a helpless, angry veil shrouding his usually poised mien. Then, as if to dispel the emotion that even impeded his speech, he shook his head and closed his eyes. As he did, a solitary, angry tear escaped from the corner of his eye and spilled on to his cheek.
“E, please tell me. What’s wrong?” I pleaded.
When his voice finally emerged it was hoarse, barely above a whisper. “You.”
Me? I was causing him this apparent agony?
“Why? What have I done?”
Bound for Salvation
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 sweet insanity.
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 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!
Bound for Nirvana
The bonds of their love saw them through the ravaging storm to the promise of peace and the chance to breathe …
Angel once believed her soul belonged to the Devil. Now she willingly gives every part of her—mind, body and soul—to the man whose love mends her a little more each day.
Ethan knows Hell is no place for an angel, especially not his Angel. He would sacrifice his soul every day of his life in order to save hers.
Fuelled by an almost obsessive desire, their need for each other ignites a passion that most couples could find destructive, but instead the flames of their possessive vigilance only seem to feed the fire of their insatiable hunger. The slaying of Ethan’s demons has made their fortress of love stronger than ever.
But Angel continues to paper over the cracks of her troubled past, running from the demons that chase her and the nightmares that plague her. When a twist of fate forces her to confront them, she finally begins to accept that her repressed memories need to be explored in order to attain the peace she craves.
But in her search for Nirvana, Angel discovers far more than buried memories.
What happens when the worst nightmare you’ve ever encountered is the one you wake up in?
When the past comes face to face with the present to reveal a web of diseased secrets and lies?
And the only road you can take leads to one destination… Hell.

I finished this ARC a week ago, and I’ve been dreading writing this review. Not because I didn’t love every word of this book, but because that means that this series is over and I’m not ready to let Ethan and Angel go.
To say I love this book or this series is a gross understatement. Kendra has ingrained herself onto my top authors list with her first series. BFN picks up where Bound For Salvation left off. Angel and Ethan are recovering from an incident with his “ex”, and trying to get used to living together.
Angels demons still rear their ugly heads at her, but now they have help from a different source. Ethan and Angel’s love faces its ultimate test to date, with twist and turns that will leave you agonizing every time you need to put the book down, even if it’s just for a moment. Your mind will race with possible scenarios of what could happen or what’s to come.
The best part of this book is that we learn just how connected Ethan and Angel really are. If there were ever two people meant to be, it’s them, and you get to see why. Their love is tested, but only grows stronger.
I can’t convey how much I love this series. Kendra is such a gifted writer. As sad as I am to say goodbye to Ethan and Angel, I’m excited to see who she brings us next. I know that Kendra will be around for a long time to come and I, for one, will be reading her until the day she stops writing.
About Kendra …
Kendra Leigh fell in love with words and reading as a young child. 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.
Now, of course, she has more of a fondness for chocolate, cheese and hot men in suits – not necessarily in that order.
Kendra devotes her life to her devilishly handsome partner, scandalously beautiful daughter and cute as hell Shih-Tzu. She believes in love at first sight, and as well as writing and reading, Kendra has a passion for great movies and brilliantly written TV.
The Amazon bestselling Bound Trilogy is her debut series. She is currently plotting and weaving a spinoff series to feature well-loved characters from the trilogy.
