Bound by blood. Bound by loyalty. Bound by love.
Florian has it all: excellent fashion sense, a kickass job with his best friend, and a hard-won place among Silverton’s werewolves. When a pack of females pads into their territory, Flo’s alpha dispatches him to handle a merger. Total cakewalk. Except Keely, their alpha, has no intention of submitting her wolves to Flo's larger pack. Worse, a single glance from her baby blues sends his eloquence on vacation and his heartbeat into overdrive. His flirtations seem welcome too, but there's a snag. She doesn’t know he’s a vampire.
While Flo struggles with his conflicts—obey his alpha or win over Keely—his estranged sire blasts into town with a catalog of radical ideas. And hanging out with unsophisticated werewolves didn't make the list.
With violence in the air and all sides testing his loyalties, Florian must bite back, even if showing his fangs costs him the girl.
I probably would have enjoyed BOUND much more had I read GUARDED, as it took awhile for me to finally get comfortable with who is who and what was happening and why. Absolute confusion slowly turned into a somewhat comfortable read as we start to follow Florian, a vampire connected to a werewolf pack. I liked the dynamics between Florian and his pack. They seemed like a fun group of people to hang out with and they definitely know how to party.
Florian has a lot on his plate in this story dealing with his loyalty to his new pack and the whole being a vampire thing and all that entails. I liked watching him deal with his darker urges and figuring out just where he stands in his relationships. As is to be expected of a story involving bloodsucking vampires there is a lot of blood and violence. His relationship to his pack and his sire become even more complicated with the burgeoning feelings for Keely, a female alpha wolf he meets in an attempt to get their packs to merge.
BOUND is a fun, sexy urban fantasy with lots of violence, a dash of humor, and some romance which are the exact ingredients for a pretty darn good urban fantasy story. Again, I'd recommend reading the first book as it would probably make the beginning of BOUND less confusing and hard to get through.Series Titles:
