*Spoiler*- Warning, I can't write a review on this book w/o a spoiler alert!
Bound was a well written and intriguing book.
Let's be completely honest, as I started reading it I kept seeing quite a few similarities between Bound and the Twilight series. At first I was a bit put off because I love the Twilight series and if I want to read them, then I'll grab them off my shelf. But I kept reading and I am so glad I did!
While there are several similarities (Immortal / Vampire, Can't know the truth about the guy b/c their "kind" doesn't allow it, ect) I really did appreciate how Dean was able to make it her own. There were several twists that surprised me and it more than enough made me glad I didn't stop reading. Let me be frank by saying the writing and story itself never turned me off, it was just the similarities.
For example, I loved the extraordinary bond between Emma and her brother Sean. It was so refreshing to read a story where sibling love and bond really exists! Emma is strong willed and will not surrender until she knows the truth about Liam's secret. It is an extra surprise to learn Sean's secret as well! So many secrets in a little town !
Overall, I would give it a 4 out of 5 stars. I'm only knocking it down 1 star due to the similarities that I mentioned above. Still, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys paranormal romances!
