REVIEW & BOOK BLITZ: Bound For Salvation (Bound Trilogy #2) by Kendra Leigh **GIVEAWAY & EXCERPT**

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 ...

**Relentlessly sexy. Emotionally deep. Tangled, twisted, intricately woven love story with romance and suspense. For readers 18 and over due to explicit sexual content.**

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.

5++++ Sensual Stars

Oh my goodness this one Roller-coaster of a journey, I love this series HARD I mean there is everything you would need in a story that has you panting and wanting your hubby/BF right next to you in pure erotic deliciousness yet it has a lot of Intrigue and a suspenseful plot that had me guessing and sitting on my edge of the seat in equal measures. I will say though you really need to go into this book knowing nothing so this review will be as Spoiler Free as possible.

So we start pretty much as book one ends where both Ethan and Angel are dealing with their pasts or for Angel she is I suppose still running and hiding from her demons and her nightmares. Therefore she just shuts off so she can live for the now which she does, but she does it in a way where she can be strong for Ethan. Angel is one strong cookie she has a way about her that obviously Ethan fell for he saw the special woman that she is, her feisty mannerisms and at the same time the caring nature that she holds inside not only that but the love that pours out of her that she shares so willingly to the people that will let her in.

Angel had a past with no love she hasn't had the best upbringing and brought herself up so although she is totally and undoubtedly in love with Ethan and shares herself to the people around them she also wants her father and brothers to at least acknowledge her as her family which is something that she needs to learn to just deal with, with that she lived previously in a place where she knew of no love therefore now she has Ethan in her life she just opens her heart to him maybe slowly to start with (previously in Bound for Hell) but now we've moved on and we quench in a delightful delicious sensual relationship that Love just surrounds them, they love so easily.

Saying all that there are quite a bit of plot twists and a suspenseful feel to the story in this one, I'm not going to delve too much into that because as a reader you need to enjoy this yourself but I will say I felt like I was watching a fast paced film with my own eyes except I got every emotion and feeling from both Ethan and Angel, I got quite emotional through this one, there were secrets to unfold too so I felt a whole lot throughout the story I think because of that I connected to the characters straight away as their feelings and emotions were so raw and real.

Above all this was a fast paced full length novel that had me gasping for air yet at the same time enjoy the sensual moments that made the core of the story about their love story.

This is book two of a Trilogy but it didn't leave on a cliffhanger just more of looking forward to the last chapter of their journey and closure mainly for Angel and dealing with her Demons now Ethan has done with his.

Side Note: A Big Thank you to Kendra for involving our blog in your Acknowledgments, it really is a joy to find new authors to love and this one is a must read.
