Bound (Bound Duet #1) by Stephie Walls
4.5 stars!!!

“…this time, he’d gone too far. He’d lost me.”

Stephie Walls has just put me through the emotional wringer and Freed cannot come quick enough. Stephie Walls is a supremely talented writer and was incredibly brave to put together a story that encompasses quite a lot of peoples top two peeves. If you do not like cheating in any form, this is not the book for you, if you take issue with a broken woman being a doormat, this is not for you either, but I beg you to take a chance, because this book was unputdownable and I inhaled every single word. The angst and the emotion were complete winners for me and while I desperately wanted to batter these two people, many, many, times, their toxic relationship was like crack and I was the junkie who willing went along for the ride.

“It was all part of the façade – the illusion of perfection – because if it looked flawless from the outside, no one would see the effed-up mess on the inside.”

I am not going to go into details at all, because this was a journey for both characters right from the very beginning and I desperately want everyone to experience the ride for themselves. You need to experience the highs and the lows for yourself because it is this rollercoaster of emotions that makes this the story that it is. There was a lot of anger, but there was a lot of love too, but it is these two opposites that fan the flames.

“You make me feel again, even though some of it’s painful and ever more of it is fear.”

Gray and Annie were soul mates and even after everything that transpired in this book, the hopeless romantic within me wants these two to make it. But, and this is a huge but, sometimes you have to let your head rule.

I don't care what time it is, or the day of the week because everytime a new book from this author enters my Kindle I need to start reading asap. I know that every person who have read her books thinks just like me and if you want to find out why just grab her books and start reading. I'll guarantee you that you will not want to stop.
Stephie Walls has a simple, intense and breathtaking writing that will hook you up from the first chapter because every book has the same intensity and the same love poured out.
Bound is the first book from the Bound Duet series and oh boy, what a book this was.
Let's just say that the prologue is intense as hell.
This book tells Annie's life and struggles.
Annie is a college student that works in a consulting firm. She just wants to get her degree and move on. She's a confident woman without being cocky but behind that facade hides a wounded girl with so much pain hidden away that sometimes she can't deal with it. She don't want to be involved in a serious relationship mainly because she was severely hurt in the past but sometimes we can't choose what happens, and I'm not going to say another word about this because I don't spoil so go get it.
I'm still shaking. I was supposed to be used to the intensity of her books but this one just overwhelmed me. This story is so intense, so heartfelt, so dramatic that left me damage to the bones. I really wasn't expecting that this story unfolded in the way it did, I thought this would be a book with a few bumps in the road but dayum it was hard drive.
Of course we have a few hot scenes into the mix but the feeling behind each action, behind each word left me anxious.
There were parts of the book that I really wanted to beat the shi...

Ok, so I’m a little lost for words. I’m processing. Not in a bad way, no, not all – but Bound feels like I’ve been dragged under a riptide. I have so much going on in my head right now, that – quite honestly – I don’t know where my head is at. I believe Stephie Walls has screwed my mind. Not that it wasn’t already on the brink – I’ve just finished 13 Reasons Why and it’s left me in a funny place inside my head. But, this book has just pushed it right over a rocky and steep precipice. Before I started reading my review copy I’d actually read some of the reviews that had already been published and a lot of them focused on cheating and the sex aspects and I went into this book expecting a sex fest. I was wrong, and the reviewers that focused on those aspects were wrong too. I hate saying that because everybody is entitled to their opinion…blah blah blah, etc…etc…

Although Bound is most certainly an Adult book and the sex is VERY MUCH on the hot side of the spectrum, it also is about A LOT of other more harrowing issues. It’s not just your round of the mill dark romance either – it’s so complex and if there is any issue or complaint it should be that it should be split into two books really. Look, I’m not complaining because hell, it’s pretty much two in one and I’m already struggling with the idea of waiting on Freed (book #2). So, in my opinion this book should come with a warning, because if you’re not in a good frame of mind it will absolutely do you in. It’s funny because that’s where Walls’ talent lies with the story telling. She gets right under your skin to the point that you feel like you’re tainted by all the things that happen not only to Annie but also to Will. Then there’s also Gray who is completely messed up in a completely different way and level.

4.5 stars!!!

“…this time, he’d gone too far. He’d lost me.”

Stephie Walls has just put me through the emotional wringer and Freed cannot come quick enough. Stephie Walls is a supremely talented writer and was incredibly brave to put together a story that encompasses quite a lot of peoples top two peeves. If you do not like cheating in any form, this is not the book for you, if you take issue with a broken woman being a doormat, this is not for you either, but I beg you to take a chance, because this book was unputdownable and I inhaled every single word.

You need to experience the highs and the lows for yourself because it is this rollercoaster of emotions that makes this the story that it is. There was a lot of anger, but there was a lot of love too, but it is these two opposites that fan the flames.

“You make me feel again, even though some of it’s painful and ever more of it is fear.”

Gray and Annie were soul mates and even after everything that transpired in this book, the hopeless romantic within me wants these two to make it. But, and this is a huge but, sometimes you have to let your head rule. My head tells me that these two are toxic together, without a doubt these two love each other, heart, body and soul but sometimes you can love someone too much. Their love is toxic, the kind that burns like a mother f***er and decimates everything and everyone in its wake. Your heart sees the love that they have for one and other and yet your head and your eyes read the way Gray treats her and has you questioning…does he love her at all? This is not love.

“I looked at him and realized I had only thought my world was complicated before this. I had just added a whole new dimension to the clutter in my life.”

My emotions were in a perpetual quandary reading this book, a constant battle of heart v head, heart v head, heart v head. The emotional battering at the pen of Stephie Walls was masterful and left me a reeling mess by the end. I lived and breathed this journey with Annie and Gray, I experienced those highs, highs that made my heart swell, highs that made me fall hopelessly in love with this couple but then the lows brought that all crashing down in one hopelessly crushed pile of emotions. How can something so good, be so bad?

“I didn’t want you to leave because you believed I needed too much from you. You made it clear what I could expect, and I’d rather have some of you than nothing at all.”

I adored Annie, even though her coping mechanisms left a lot to be desired I understood, a little. Annie’s relationship with Gray, again, I could understand, but I didn’t agree with. Annie was a fiercely independent woman, but her past had left their scars, bone deep ones and it is this connection with her past that had a huge bearing on her present and Gray took advantage of that whether it was intentional or not.

“I want to show you the difference between damage and love.”

I’m still on the fence with Gray, he is still a little bit of an enigma, a Jekyll and Hyde character, and one that I desperately want to understand more. I am sure that he has been economical with the truth or maybe omissions, but there must be something to make him the way he is. There is more to this story or at least I hope there is. Whether these two are right for each other remains to be seen, but I cannot wait for the ride, somehow, I feel that Bound has been a rollercoaster for kids and the big upside down, loop the loop one is still to come with Freed…would Stephie Walls be that cruel?

“…think of me as a partner instead of a crutch.”

I can’t even with this book, what to do? What to say? Gah, it is so frustrating. This is definitely going to be a battle, I know I’m vague, I know I’m rambling, I’m just so bloody confused!!! Heart v head, heart v head, heart v head…dammit, I NEED FREED!!!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Emotionally-driven ugly cry with heat and passion 20 April 2017
By EscapeNBooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Bound by Author Stephie Walls is book one in the Bound Duet. It is a contemporary romance novel originally released in 2014. However, it has been completely re-written and formatted.

Annie has felt pain that is so deep she never thought she would find her way out of it. Because of this, she is blinded to men. Until Gray. He captures her eye and her heart, forming an unbreakable bond.

I was seized by the prologue of this story. Who does that? On the day of their wedding! Who? One of the characters skillfully formed my Author Stephie Walls. I just knew that this story was going to be an ugly cry of epic proportions.

"It's just a dance. I won't bite you."

From the first moment that Annie met Gray Dearsley, I was a complete goner. A warehouse worker was never so hot. This man melted plastic just by being near it. Their initial interactions gave the perception that he would be the man to heal her wounds and give her hope. Annie was such a kind and forgiving young woman. I NEEDED for her to have a man that cherished her and treated her like the treasure that she was.

“You ain’t seen nothing yet, baby. I’m just getting warmed up. Now that you’ve let me in get ready. I’m insatiable. The more you scream, the more I want you. I’ve never heard a woman cry out like you did, and it was hot.”

I came undone with how insanely hot certain scenes were in this novel. I was swept up in the passion and intimacy that Gray and Annie had together, and there were moments that I panted right along side of them. Love was in the air, lust was in the libido, and sexy had never been so well written.

"Our bodies had become one with no end, and my heart got tangled in the embrace. The love and passion coursing through me were far greater than anything I’d ever experienced..."

One of the things I love the most about a book by this author is that you cannot read her words and find a lack of emotional connection. These sentiments rolled from the page straight into my soul and spilled out in tears, laughter, sadness, and delight. The uncertainty of a future for Annie and Gray, secrets that were too deep to reveal, and a mysterious undertone kept these feelings exposed until the final scene.

" I was too smart to buy his charade, but I wasn’t strong enough to call the game."

I ended the last page of Bound by flipping open the first page of Freed, because a good love story can't wait.
5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes Love Is Just Not Enough 19 April 2017
By Nancy Reads - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
BOUND is #1 Duet in a #2 Duet Series. FREED IS #2 DUET. Release date for BOUND is 4/19/17 and for FREED on 5/10/17.

Annie Teasman is only 20 years old, and showed the world a strong and independent young woman. The one behind closed doors was meek and scared of her own shadow. She worked full time and was a full time College Student. Her career and school was easy, they just required hard work. A relationship with the opposite sex, left her broken, shattered and depressed. She once had been Will Murphree's girlfriend, but when he left, she became depressed and turned to drugs to cope. She didn't have time or desire to ever have another relationship.

Annie never saw it coming, until she saw the face of Gray Dearsley---the weekend shift supervisor. His swagger, the confidence in his stare, those gorgeous eyes of blue, suddenly she wanted him. Everything about him screamed trouble. She had no doubt that he would wreck havoc on her already chaotic life. She was 6 years younger then Gray, but had already lived a world of hurt. Her coping mechanism was drugs. But she would have followed him to the end of the earth, even if she knew he'd push her over the edge once they got there. Maybe it was simply that he was the first guy she bothered to notice since Will, but whatever it was, she feared it would end horribly. If it wasn't love, than some odd form of fairytale, but feared this was no fairytale romance.

She was hopelessly in love with Gray, and would do anything to keep him by her side. He made her promise no more drugs. But he wasn't interested in getting married again, or commitment. He wanted to live his life the way he wanted with no excuses or promises. When he was good, he was very, very good, but when he was bad he was horrid. There was something about Gray, and there always would be. He had the ability to make the darkest days brighter, but on the flip side, he could take any day and make it unbearable. To lose him was like losing her soul. As a reader I loved Gray and I also hated him.

Annie and Gray might have separated for the time being, but the tides may turn, bringing them back together or maybe not. This is a textbook of an unhealthy relationship. Can't wait to read FREED.

5.0 out of 5 stars Proves that love (of any kind) has the ability to make us weak 19 April 2017
By Leddy Harper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Stephie Walls has a way of telling a story that sucks you in. Even if you have no idea where she's taking you, you hold on knowing it'll be amazing. And Bound was no different. I understood Annie, probably more than I want to admit. And I think almost every woman who reads this will agree. We say we're strong, but for some reason, love (of any kind) has the ability to make us weak. I had a love/hate relationship with Gray...but this story really isn't about Gray when you break it down. It's about Annie and how she deals with love, loss, pressure, and above all, how she learns to stand on her own two feet. The meaning of this book incredibly inspirational without being preachy. I think everyone can take something valuable from Bound.
5.0 out of 5 stars ♥ Bound is one wild ride that you shouldn't miss! ♥ 20 April 2017
By Raeshelle, A Naughty Girl's Novel World Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
It took me awhile to wrap my head around Stephie Wall's Bound because it is one of those heart-wrenching novels that you think about for a long time after you consume the very last word. Gut-wrenching, incredibly poignant and deeply touching, Bound tells a love story that will make you question the things that people are willing to do for love and the extent of what one will tolerate in order to hang on to a love that is so powerful and life-changing that it is nearly impossible to let it go.

I am going to be honest here: Bound made my heart bleed. The level of frustration and anger that I experienced while reading Annie and Gray's love story was astronomical and my emotions were in such a tizzy that I had a hard time finishing this book. I had to take breaks while I was reading because I got so wrapped up in these characters and some of the crazy events that occur between this couple. Even so, I could not look away because the author tells a tale that is filled with such tremendous passion that I was inevitably forced to continue.

The prologue grabbed my attention immediately. My jaw dropped and my eyes nearly bugged out of my head before I literally shed tears. For me, it represents the essence of the title "Bound," because it showcases the fact that one can become irrevocably bound by love in spite of the fact that it can become unhealthy, perhaps even toxic.

Annie and Gray experience an immediate spark that singes them both and leads to a epic physical and emotional connection. They run red-hot and then ice cold, and the fall out obliterated everything in its path. There were so many times that I wanted to slap both of these characters; Annie for some of her poor decisions and her inability to remain strong, and Gray for being selfish, manipulative and just plain cruel.

Stephie Walls makes a very powerful statement in the introduction of this book, and it should not be taken lightly. This is one of the most realistic romances that I have ever read and it definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone. Trust me when I say that if you are looking for fluff or a "feel good" romance then you should skip this one because Bound hits hard and you will FEEL it bone deep, right where it hurts.

Bound is a wild ride. I am not sure where this journey will take me, but after the way that Bound ended I HAVE to know what happens next.

Should you read Bound? I think so, because Stephie Wall's story-telling ability is out of this world and the overall message that I gleaned from this prolific tale left me shaken and contemplative. This is a novel that will make you think and evaluate your own personal stand on several issues when it comes to love and relationships.

I say READ it, if you dare!!!!

That is this Naughty Girl's final world.

Overall: A solid 4.5 stars!

Heat: 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥/5 flames for some seriously SEXY times!
