Blood Bound was enjoyable enough. It’s mainly based on lots of hot sex; between our leads Dante and Anna. The sex is light BDSM. Not hard core. The world was interesting, but I would have liked more meat. The story is mainly a bunch of hot sex with very little plot.
Our leads, Anna and Dante, I could’t connect with. They where’t very memorable nor did we get to dive deep into their characters. The secondary characters where enjoyable. I liked Anna’s sister Liz. She seamed to have a good head on her shoulder and then we get to meet two other characters, the Bartender and the Cowboy, who both where amusing.
Dante, I liked well enough. He’s our half breed demon and sex-on-a stick. He’s trying to achieve equality and justice. He wants things to change, to have a safe place for those that are half breeds like himself, and a better club.
Anna, I didn’t like at all. She comes searching for her twin sister Liz and ends up at the Demon gang’s base. She was annoying, feel into Dante’s arms to quickly and easily not giving a backward glance to her missing sister Liz, and even after finding her sister she still doesn’t believe or want her powers. Anna’s been running away her whole life from her powers, her desires, and her destiny. She continues to run away the entire book even up to the end. Very frustrating!
Blood Bound had some good idea’s behind it, but it wasn’t the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.
Rated: 2.5 Stars

You have the basics of this story in the Cover Description. What you don’t get there, although it’s hinted at, is that there is a lot of sex in this story. As well as light to moderate BDSM. Now I do not have a problem with kink… some readers do, and they should be aware of that particular button going into the story.
Like I said, it’s a good story. Anna has some secrets of her own, she’s reluctant to tap into her own powers and she has issues. She spent so much energy over the years blocking the mental connection she had with her twin,that when she needs it… it’s gone. Dante is driven with his own unique secrets as well. He is sexy as sin, which should be his middle name, and not afraid to use it to get exactly what he wants. And the sex is gonna heat up your e-reader, that’s for sure.
There is an audience who will enjoy this story, usually I’d be among them but this time it simply didn’t work for me. You have to make that decision for your own reading preferences. There’s more to come in this series and I’ll be following it. The premise of the series is good, and for that I’ll keep giving it a chance.
*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this novel. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this story.*
