Trisha Wolfe brings her A game once again.
I’ve rediscovered my love for crime novels, it’s where my reading obsession began—I love the thrill of guessing ‘whodunit’, add in Trisha’s flawless writing and it’s a match made in heaven for me.
“Ignorance of our own fractured existence is bliss.”
With Ties That Bind must be read after the With Visions of Red trilogy but don’t worry, it’s absolutely worth the read. Avery played an integral role in the third part of the story and thus begins her own journey. I loved learning more about Avery’s character; the way in which her story intertwines with WVoR is so clever. I had to go back and reread the ending of Sadie’s story, as my mind couldn’t keep up with the revelations! The storyline gives your brain a workout in the best possible way.
“I don’t want to be your hero, Avery. You don’t need saving. But I do regret not being able to protect you—to show you right then in that moment that I’d take on the world to keep you safe.”
Quinn is the sexy cop in this scenario and he plays his part very well (these books play like a movie in my head when I read them) but his mind is all over the place. He struggles to keep his relationship with Avery professional; he has unresolved drama with Sadie going on, and not to mention he has some bad guys to catch!
Avery and Quinn’s story starts off gentle, it’s like a slow sensual dance, one that poor Quinn’s nether regions is very well aware of! I thought this worked well for the couple and I especially loved the difference between their relationship and Sadie and Colton’s, after all, they are entirely different people.Read more ›

I have become obsessed with Trisha Wolfe's Broken Bonds books. These are the very best of the best dark erotic thriller romance stories filled to the brim with climatic suspense. They leave readers on the edge of their seat, begging for more! Be prepared, don't start this book unless you have enough time to read it all in one sitting, because if you are anything like me, you will not want to stop until the last page is read. My life has been hectic with responsibility, therefore, I couldn't achieve this, and found myself obsessing throughout my entire day about Avery and Quinn's story.
The With Visions of Red Serial comes before With Ties that Bind, and needs to be read first to avoid major spoilers. The Broken Bonds serial focused on Agent Sadie Bonds, Love interest Colton Reed, and a deranged serial killer. Now, Sadie is a secondary character, and the Broken Bonds series focuses on two different characters.
Medical examiner Avery Johnson feels broken and forever changed after her traumatic capture and torture at the hands of a psychotic serial killer. She has lost her libido, and is determined to get it back. Therefore, she is using her skills to develop a solution to her problem. She also finds herself engaging in perilous and risky behaviors, which is her way of dealing with the after effects of her traumatic experience.
Detective Ethan Quinn is struggling with his morality. He has always seen things as black and white with no gray area, and done his job by the book. However, while working his last case, the black and white lines got blurred, and forever changed Quinn's way of thinking about and doing his job. He is very protective of Avery, and doesn't know how to help her, but is always there when she needs him. When dead bodies begin turning up, and clues point to the very real possibility that Avery may be in danger again, Detective Quinn makes a promise that he will protect and not fail her again.
With Ties that Bind was a scorching hot read. The close friendship and attraction shared by Avery and Quinn, along with the anticipation and longing for one another added to the sizzling quality of this story. I was rooting for these two from the very beginning. Avery knew that she wanted Quinn, but he kept trying to keep things between them platonic. I wanted him to give in to his desires and toss out his rule book!
Ms. Wolfe gives us another mystery that will leave readers desperate to piece together and solve. We get a little glimpse in to the killer's head, but I want to hear from him more. I'm hoping the sequel will be chock-full of the killer's perspective so I can learn more about him, see what makes him tick, and begin to put the pieces of this puzzle together. I'm already beginning to work out some theories, but I need more information.
All I can say is that the Broken Bonds Serial and Series are have-to-reads! They are utterly fantastic! We get everything that you could possibly want in a phenomenal read. These stories take you in to the minds and lives of these characters. Reality disappears, as you eat, breathe, and sleep characters who are so real and tangible. The mystery, suspense, and thrilling and erotic plot gives you a reader's high, from which you will never want to come down. Yes, I suffer from a major book hangover after I finish each and every one of these books. Like a junkie, I am feigning for the sequel of With Ties that Bind. There is no doubt in my mind that Ms. Wolfe is a master storyteller, and other writers could learn a lot from her.
I give, With Ties that Bind, by Trisha Wolfe, 4.5 Addictive and Spellbinding, Dark Temptations, Mystery Killer, Frenzied Passion, Give Me the Next Book Now Filed Stars! What a fantastic read!!!
Dark reads tend to make me feel dirty, depressed and often have me feeling like reaching for the nearest razor blade. Trisha's dark makes me feel deliciously naughty and wildly wicked! I love it!
With Ties That Bind is a faced paced, wickedly sexy and deviously thrilling read from the twisted mind of an uber talented author. I mean, seriously, who else can come up this stuff?
After furiously devouring every word in this book and finally getting what I wanted and needed most - a glimpse into the mind of the killer himself, my favorite part of all The Broken Bonds books - I still have questions. Who is the Alpha,? Who is the leak in the department? Will Quin find out if his suspicions about Sadie are true? Is he willing to even go there? AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, when will Quin finally get his rocks off? Okay, so he got a little taste but not nearly enough to cure the worst case of blue balls I have ever read!
I can't remember the last time I had so much fun reading such a dark twisted book. Oh wait, yes I can, it was With Visions of Red.
While it may be possible to understand this book without first reading With Visions of Red, I think any reader would be doing a huge disservice to themselves and the quality of the experience if you didn't.
Note to the author: Now that you have climbed out of your writing cave and cleaned yourself up, I'm gonna need you to crawl right back in, neglect your personal hygiene and give me the next installment. Both Quin and I are waiting!
What a wickedly twisted mind Ms. Wolfe must possess!
With Ties That Bind takes us back into the ACPD where Quinn and Avery are investigating a possible link between two victims. The link they find, however, opens up a can of worms neither of them wanted open. And then the unthinkable...is Avery in danger again?
I like the mix of police procedural and romantic suspense Ms. Wolfe weaves into this dark story. With Ties That Bind lacked the criminal profiling element of With Visions of Red, but I'm hoping to see some in the next installment. The reason behind these latest crimes was interesting as was is link to Avery. And I really appreciate how Ms. Wolfe tied the crimes together with events from With Visions of Red. I'm sure that'll only add to teh suspense over the course of this part of the series.
The budding relationship between Quinn and Avery is an element I look forward to watching continue in its development, especially since it goes against Quinn's code. The pull between them is palpable and intensified with all that's happened to Avery. Quinn is hesitant and Avery is as well, but for different reasons.
The ending left me frantically processing and questioning. Who is this sick person? Do we already know him? I can't get any of the puzzle pieces to fit together yet and I'm biting my nails in anxiety wanting the next set of pieces so I can begin laying out the puzzle to see if I can figure out the picture.
I devoured the serials of Broken Bonds (visions of red books) and they should be read before this because there are spoilers. This is no different and it gets me into the minds of secondary characters from before that I really enjoyed and was glad to see that they would get their time in the spotlight. The story is told in dual narrative from Quinn a detective that was partners with Sadie from the previous books, and Avery, the victim of torture of the serial killings from Visions, she was taken because of her friendship with Sadie and the fact that she was a member of the force, a medical examiner where Sadie worked.
Avery is still traumatized from the torture and kidnapping from the book before. She has nightmares, and PTSD. She took comfort from Quinn while she was still in the hospital where he would hold her hand and it helped to ground her. Quinn is hard core attracted to her, but tries to hide it for a lot of reasons. I liked watching their relationship and friendship continue in this one. Avery doesn't get a break and she keeps seeing everyone especially Quinn as trying to pamper her and not think that she is able to handle life. She can't see that they just care and want to protect her.
This one is fast paced, and had a lot of character exploration. Avery doesn't get a break though. She is still trying to feel more after her attack, especially sexually, and she is trying things that normally wouldn't and Quinn sees some of this and isn't sure. She is also in danger again which adds to the suspense in this one.
A third POV is added too at the very end which is not all so surprising with the Visions series as an example. It is from the one behind the attacks of the girls and shows us that things are even more complex than we could imagine, setting things up for the next book.
I read this in one sitting and can't wait for the next installment. Trisha doesn't disappoint! She brings on the emotions, the suspense, and the break neck pacing of the plot.
Disclaimer: I received this book as an ARC (advanced review copy). I am not paid for this review, and my opinions in this review are mine, and are not effected by the book being free.
Bottom Line: Steamy, fast paced, and love the characters getting more in depth from previous series.
“A man obsessed is a dangerous thing.”
Move over Sadie and Colton, there is a new couple in town!! As much as I loved the darkness and intrigue that surrounded Colton and Sadie, I have to say, I was super excited to get Quinn and Avery’s story. You see, I have been curious about these two for quite some time. There was always something about the two of them that just drew me in, and now their story is finally being told.
Told from dual points of view, With Ties That Bind picks up right where Broken Bonds #3 ended, but now it’s Quinn and Avery’s turn to tell their story. And boy what a way to start of their story. There is a new criminal in town and his actions will not only shock you, but they will leave your head spinning. Quinn has one agenda; one thing on his mind and that is to protect Avery. He wants to keep her safe, no matter the cost. But, of course you know that nothing can ever come easy and in With Ties That Bind, the stakes will be higher than ever and only time will tell if Quinn is able to keep his promise.
I have to say, I was really impressed with Quinn. I’ve been intrigued by him for a while and I really enjoyed getting to see this other side to him. I loved getting the chance to get inside his head. He’s got a lot of internal struggles going on and I really enjoyed experiencing those struggles first hand as he fought himself and his self imposed rules. And Avery, she has been through so much and the hits just keep coming for her. That being said, I really enjoyed seeing her new connection to Sadie. It gave me a lot of insight not only to their characters, but also brought some new insight into the events of Broken Bonds #3. And I have to say, I really liked the connection between Quinn and Avery. Their relationship started off with a real slow burn and slowly built into something scorching.
I think this series is off to a fantastic start. With Ties That Bind is dark and thrilling. It’s full of danger and surprising twists and turns. It is sexy and full of steam. Trisha Wolfe does not disappoint and really knows how to take her readers for a crazy ride. Her stories are filled with suspense and mystery, with twisted darkness thrown in for good measure. And With Ties That Bind is no exception. It definitely delivers and will leave on the edge of your seat, begging for more. I am really looking forward to seeing where this series will go and what dark and twisted journey Trisha Wolfe will take us on next.
