Dark and Gripping – 5 DARK stars!
After reeling from events at the end of the previous book Blood Ties, I was so pleased to get my hands on this instalment. Once again, Lana Sky has penned a fast-paced, intensely dark and emotional read full of nail-biting suspense, violence and sizzling sex scenes. It is though, essential to read the series in order to appreciate the complex plot and characters.
In Blood Bound, Ada Maria and Domino are on the run, having escaped Jaguar. Yet has Ada rejected one monster only to be in the clutches of another, Domino, a man who she thought she once knew but has been far from a knight in shining armour? Caught between two dangerous and deadly men, just who can Ada Maria trust? The world she finds herself in is so far removed from the lap of luxury she was used to before she was so cruelly taken from it and she has been reduced to a commodity. The couple are up against enemies at every turn and trust is a moot point.
I enjoyed how secrets from Ada’s past concerning her parents, Domino’s sister and Domino himself are slowly revealed to Ada and the reader. The author’s skills at plotting an addictive read are showcased to full in this novel which is full of unexpected twists and turns. The complex plotline was always at least one step ahead of the reader and I could not guess where the story was going. Also, for much of the book I could not fathom whether Domino would be Ada’s saviour or play a role in her eventual destruction, once his own goals were reached. Only Domino, the master manipulator, seemed to be ahead of the game and even he, at times, was struggling against his many adversaries.
Although Ada Maria is as vulnerable as ever in this book, I loved how she is determined to hold her own with Domino and admired how she held up against all that she endures. Many questions are answered during the read, including the true motivations behind Domino’s actions. I was hugely entertained throughout this thrilling read and am pleased that there are more books to come in the same world.
The book and the series is a perfect fit for lovers of dark romance, particularly those who enjoy reads set in the world of organised crime.
