Rating: 5/10

PROS:
- Sweet story of a guy who's been abused finally finding a gentle, compassionate lover who treats him with respect.
- Mitchell's best friend, Brian, is devoted and considerate. He's one of my favorite parts of the book, actually, and I look forward to reading about his own romance in Rush in the Dark.
- There's a stark, blunt scene that takes place in a free clinic and involves some personal questions from a social worker that I thought was very well done. Realistic and remote and heartrending.

CONS:
- Everything happens too quickly. This includes not just that the two main characters acknowledge their love for each other just hours after they met, but also that key dramatic scenes all through the book breeze by with just a touch of the suspense they could have had if they had been expanded upon. The plot is interesting and fairly suspenseful, but I wanted the book to have about 50 more pages of description dispersed throughout to give it some depth. We don't even get to see the characters kiss or make love when Mitchell comes to Sammi's rescue after their separation; the story skips forward by a week.
- For the majority of the story, the characters are apart. This separation is, of course, what leads to the angst that is so common in m/m stories (and this story has got the angst, full-blown). But I found the book a little hard to wade through because for the bulk of the story, both characters are hopeless and miserable.
- Some clumsy POV mistakes. In one chapter told from Mitchell's perspective, for example, the text uses the name of one of the bad guys before Mitchell knows the guy's name.

Running away from Donovan, his pimp, Sammi was alone and scared, all he had is his body to help him survive. Dodging one of Donovan's goons, Sammi ducked into a bar, in hopes of finding someone willing to take him home for the night. As soon as he walked into the bar, he found more than a john for the night, he found his soul mate. Sammi felt Mitchell's presence before he saw him and felt him speaking before Mitchell even uttered a word. Sammi knew Mitchell was his soul mate when Mitchell `heard' him too.

Mitchell Collins never thought he would meet someone to fill the hole that was left in his world when his lover Steve died five years ago, but then Sammi entered his life. Sammi made Mitchell feel things he never felt before, he loved Sammi on a level totally different from what he felt for Steve. When Donovan tracks Sammi down will the bond he shares with Mitch be enough to keep him safe?

Soul Bonds is a good, sweet and entertaining story. Sammi is the sweetest thing and Mitchell is an utterly fantastic guy, but I felt the love came way to quickly between them. Even though their relationship moved rather fast it was still a very loving one, and I adored Sammi. I also liked Brian, he was an awesome best friend and I would love to read more about him. Although there were a couple of scenes that had me reading them in total disbelief, the overall story of Soul Bonds was very enjoyable.

I enjoyed the story. Sammi is sweet, which is odd considering what he's been through. At times he makes some decisions that make me want to smack him, but since he's been a sex slave for the last several years and not used to making his own decisions, I suppose that's par for the course. I really liked Mitchell. His acceptance of Sammi and drive to keep him by his side was heart-warming. May we all find someone as devoted as he. I plan to look at the rest of the series.
