This book gave me that escape and so the review can be neatly summarised like this: “it was a good read. I enjoyed the characters”.
BUT, I’m guessing that you will be wanting a bit more flesh on the review bones!
I did enjoy this story. Jasmine’s confusion and frustration at her situation was almost tangible, and the heat between the two of them fairly charred the virtual pages at some points!!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
I try to choose carefully which books I request but I'm human - sometimes I get it wrong, and select a book that other readers may well love but which just doesn't work for me. Sadly this book was one such novel :( I'll write why it didn't work for me - it could be exactly what you want - fortunately everyone looks for different things and what doesn't appeal to me may be just what someone else is looking for :)
So, why didn't it work? Well, I love a romance and from the description this sounded perfect, but I need drama in my reading, lots of soaring highs and plummeting lows. I need a novel to be like a race along a winding, hilly, road up a mountainside, moments when your heart is in your mouth and you're struggling to breathe, when you look at the drop down the side and it terrifies you, where you wonder if you're doing the right thing taking this risk, but when you get there the view from the top is perfect, and makes it all worthwhile. What this novel is though is a sedate amble along a 10 MPH driveway, with a few very gentle speed bumps, so carefully placed you barely feel them. That about it - the story and writing is fine, very sweet but just not enough drama to hold my interest. There were times when I wanted to say to both Luciano and Jasmine "come on- really? Is that the best you can come up with?" as their actions and conversations stretched my credulity....
Still, maybe you want that gentle, easy to read, romance. This may be just your sort of read - it just isn't mine. It's priced at £1.89 for 152 pages.

Stars: two - just not my sort of read but that personal taste not reflection of book quality.

I liked the idea of an amnesia themed romance and that coupled with the high reviews, made me buy this book. Sorry that I did. The heroine from the beginning doesn't ask as many questions as she should be when confronted by someone claiming to be her husband. Or for that matter, marriages are a public record so why didn't she try to find out if there was a license on record in order to locate her husband. The hero is TSTL - he gave up on his wife so easily, instantly turning against her based on one conversation with her father and never giving her a chance to explain and then at the end when he thinks she may be pregnant with another man's baby - again assumes the worst and doesn't ask her "hey were you just shopping for a baby shower or do you want to tell me something?"
Also the lifestyle of a billionaire would include servants inside his large house or at least explain why he doesn't. Another inconsistency is that he has a luxurious private jet yet has to wait at the rental counter for a car? I can understand him wanting to drive himself, but come on, but with that level of money, one of his minions picks it up for him and has it waiting for him at the airport.
Jasmine was in a car accident and has amnesia. She has lost all memory of the last year of her life. She knows she is married because there are rings in her fingers but she does not know to whom. And no one know either, or they won't tell her. Lukas is the idiot she is married to and over some imagined slight is seeking revenge. He comes back to reclaim his wife and get revenge or something or other.
I love amnesia stories but this one sucked. There are many issues and plot holes in the story, coupled with cardboard characters and an annoying male protagonist.
Let's start with the issues in the timeline. Even after finishing the book, I have no idea how long it has been since Jasmine was in the car accident, how long she was in the hospital or anything. At certain points of the story she says it has been weeks and others months. There is no clear answer.
The next issue is Jasmine. She was a doormat who did everything the males in her life told her to do. She has no backbone and the entirety of the book I wanted to tell her to stand up to one of the idiots. When Lukas, her alleged husband, mandates that she go on a trip to somewhere with her, she does just that. Who goes on a trip with someone that claims to be your husband without actually verifying if this is in fact correct? He can be a serial killer, could have been abusive, etc.... This part is completely unbelievable.
The inconsistencies in this book keep piling up. At one point Lukas ponders that "... he'd know she was faking her amnesia. And if she was faking it then she was a remarkable actress, she'd fooled many of her friends with her memory loss." How does he know? We get an entire paragraph a few pages prior as to how she questioned her friends and no one knew who she was dating. Yet, he knows what her friends think? This book had more holes than a colander.
Issue: Lukas. He behaves like the alpha of all alphas mandating and dictating. I would have left. Half of the things he accuses her off do not even make sense. He can't see past his Alpha male pride to think rationally. The thing he is seeking revenge for could have been fixed with a nice Q&A of like 5 minutes and a visit to the doctor.
And then, as if Lukas' jackass behavior wasn't enough, he goes ahead and blames her for getting amnesia. Yep, it was her fault she got amnesia, never mind she hit her head and went through a traumatic event. If she had just loved him enough, she would have remembered. -_- No words...
The book was not enjoyable. I was not rooting for these too. I thought Jasmine was way too good for Lukas and was hoping she'd grow a backbone and hit him over the head with a heavy book. Let's see if he gets amnesia. The book has to many plot holes, characters that are too stocky and uni-dimensional. Pass.
*Received this complimentary galley for review.
Jasmine is recovering from amnesia when she's confronted by Luciano who claims to be her husband. She doesn't remember Luciano but has memories of a "Lukas". Jasmine feels like she's being slowly woken from her internal nightmares when she's with Lukas. Memories start returning and nothing makes sense; she feels longing for Lukas but has a complete mind blank as to how and why. Her memory is patchy but small things trigger recollections. Each flashback not only fanned the flames but keep the questions coming, some of which Lukas refuses to answer. Jasmine is determined to find out her history and is frustrated when Lukas or her father won't assist in recovering her memories.
Lukas is driven by revenge and deep hurt when he reappears in Jasmines life. H blackmails Jasmine to accompany him on a business trip. He wants to lash out at the world for past hurts which are fed to the reader drop by glorious drop but his overall qualities shine thru. Things don't go to plan when Lukas quickly realises he physically feels the same way about Jasmine as he did prior to her accident which in turn makes him question how he feels inside. The new Jasmine is an enigma to Lukas; things just don't add up. After spending time together it's hard for Lukas to remember his desire for revenge. He clearly loves Jasmine and knows he's in trouble when reaches the conclusion he wants to protect Jasmine and not let her find out her past actions.
I adored Bound By Her Ring because I love second chance stories. I enjoyed the passionate and emotional ride I was taken on with Lukas and Jasmine. Their love for each other shone thru. The memory sequences are first-class. As each piece of the puzzle clicked into place I could understand Lukas's feelings and my heart just dropped when Jasmine recovered her full memory. I want to start over and read the book again... not later, now!
I impatiently wait for Nicole Flockton's 3rd book!
The book was in short about Jasmine who finds herself with amnesia after surviving a nasty car accident, the only link she has to the last few months of her life before the accident is a set of gorgeously crafted rings on her left hand, and more questions than answers of who the man is she called her husband.
While attending a party one evening she comes face to face with the man who placed those rings there and suddenly her memory starts returning in flashbacks and it seems that Luciano is the key to her unlocking her full past. Now as much as she is set on regaining her memory Luciano has other plans of the more life destroying kind, he wants revenge and when he finally gets it, he will walk away leaving her as empty as she did him all those months ago.
The main characters of the book were well written and both had their own uniqueness, Jasmine being the woman who finally learns to stand up for herself and Luciano finally learning that control is not always the best option. I also really loved the different kind of person Luciano is every now and then , going from strong and commanding to passionate and caring, that kept me entertained. I particularly loved the manner the author used to layer back their secrets for me as reader. She kept me guessing all the way to the end as to just what really happened to tear these two apart when they clearly loved each other so much.
I was transported back between happier times for the couple and the here and now in fluent motion, which was important as when a book goes from past to future in a non flowing motion it lets me loose interest, as if I want to tell the author " Are you trying to make this as uninteresting as possible", however this author met my expectations and bounced from memory to current situations effortlessly.
The backdrop of Broome was perfect as it not only kept me at a relaxed page while reading with the vivid descriptions the author used to describe the island and it's tranquillity, but it also mixed in beautifully with the turmoiled emotions that both characters were going through and therefore the calm vs the storm was beautifully combined.
The dialogue was in tune with the story, going from a flirty to emotional and then from secretive to soul baring. And at the end of the day I can honestly say I enjoyed this read very much. It was heated romance combined with cold hearted revenge being brought to a explosive bang by a onslaught of memories and a punchline that left me with sadness and sorrow but also understanding and a large dose of happiness for the characters.
If your thinking that these two effortlessly and oh so smoothly fall back into bed together after being separated you would be wrong as the author put a lot more effort into it and surely but slowly lets the secrets, memories and love unfold unlike some books that deal with amnesia and lovers, they go from not remembering to jumping into bed and then going "Well that's OK I will remember later". This author took her time but not a dragging manner, as I said before I was kept on my toes and really entertained and intrigued at all time.
The title of the book was incorporated into book with absolutely stunning exquisiteness, which found simply awesome!
Excellent work Nicole, keep them coming!
5/5 star review
"Banishing the past one sensual, sweet, earth shattering kiss at a time"
But they didn't. And I'll tell you a teensy weensy secret... for the most part, I LIKED them. (shhhh)
Yeah, there are plenty of erotic scenes in this book, some of which I thought were a little too graphic, but the story itself was interesting and made for a fast read. An amnesia victim knows she's married because the rings are right there on her finger to prove it. Only problem is, she doesn't have a clue who her husband is, but when her drop-dead gorgeous billionaire of a husband shows up, her body and heart still remember what her mind has forgotten.
All in all, this is an enjoyable read. As long as you don't mind the heat.
