I am not sure where to begin with this book review. I read a lot of books and I don't usually write long reviews because I feel there is no need for me to rewrite the storyline or the synopsis for readers to read. However, this may turn out to be a pretty long review because there is so much to say about this book. I ABSOLUTELY 100% LOVED THIS BOOK. Bravo L.D. Davis!!!!!!

This is essentially a series containing three books, all available with this one download of Tethered - Book 1 Tethered, Book 2 Frayed and Book 3 Tied all for $4.99 (can't beat it). Once I started to read it I could not put it down, Unfortunately I had to stop reading for work and kids, lol but I ended up finishing it in a 24 hour period.

There are so many components to this book that everyone can relate to; friendship, family, struggles of growing up, unconditional love and longing, success, hardship, peer pressure, soul mates, drugs, alcohol, mental illness, suicide, joy, growing older, marriage, children, and so on and so on. The author did a phenomenal job at describing the lives in the story. The detail was written so that I felt as I was living life right along with them somehow worked into their story. I felt what they felt, saw what they saw and experienced what they experienced. I cried when they cried, laughed when they laughed and smiled when they smiled. There were no boring parts to skip over and every word written was necessary to the story.

One of the most interesting things that I enjoyed so about this book were the ethnicities of the two main characters; Emmett and Donya. Emmett is a Caucasian and Donya is African American but like most books this was not a main focus in the book.

Holy mother of God, This book knocked my shoes, socks and pants off. Seriously! It was everything I could've asked for and so much more. L.D Davis really outdid herself this time. I was sucked into this story from the very first word and wished that I didn't have to work or do anything but read this. Donya and Emmet frustrated me like no other couple before me had. But, when the love is strong and it's real, this is to be expected. We all know L.D knows how to write drama and sex, but who would've thought she could be so angsty? She's definitely the kind of author I would 1-click without even reading a synopsis. I just wish more people knew about her, she's a damn good author. Keep up the good work woman!

This book started off GREAT. I loved the section where Donya and Emmett were kids. Very real and well written. But then… the book became bogged down when they were teenagers. There were 300ish pages devoted to them from the ages of 15-18 and I just got so annoyed by that! I hate 'New Adult' romances, and that's what this book turned into for a large portion. Then it picked up again when they were adults, although by that time Donya was getting on my nerves. She was a head case, plain and simple. And then at the end when there were real stakes, everything was kind of wrapped up in a convenient bow. Amicable divorces were happening left and right, and it all just wrapped up a little too cleanly for me.

Pros:
Little Emmett and Donya skateboarding! So cute.
Melded, unusual families - love it
Side characters were great (except Felix, didn't buy that for one minute)
I liked seeing two soul mates meet as kids and move through the years
Pretty good sex scenes, although they got a little repetitious toward the end

Cons
Stilted, stiff dialogue. For a good portion of the book, these characters were supposed to be teenagers. They talked like adults, for the most part. Very flat and boring.
The repeated metaphor of the tether. Yes, we got it! We didn't need it to be repeated every paragraph.
TOO LONG

So, I think I would recommend this read to other people, but it just didn't always work for me. To each their own!

OMG... this book was just way too long. Don't get me wrong, I love a book with some length to it and I like to feel like I am getting my moneys worth. However, the length of this book was unnecessary to explain the love story. There was no real strength to the characters. I feel like they accepted whatever was thrown at them without even attempting to work anything out. I get there should be some conflict in order to get to the HEA but it was just redundant in this book. I really don't feel like there was any growth in the characters.

My initial impression of Donya from the "Accidentally" books was that she was smart, courageous and down to earth. Then, in this book, she becomes such a chicken-heart that I'm still not sure that she deserves Emmett.

**SPOILERS**
Donya and Emmett have something special from childhood. It grows and becomes deeper. By the time she's 14/15 (and he's 18/19), they've kissed but Emmett won't go further because he knows--and tells her--that she is not ready for the type of relationship that he wants. Donya then proceeds to go for the next two to three years with a push/pull on Emmett. She wants him; she isn't ready. She wants him; she isn't ready. And thru all of this, Emmett is there, trying to love her and trying to get her to love him back. And when she doesn't love him back, he starts dating other people which makes her angry. Blah-blah-blah.

So they break up and Emmett dates someone else, who gets pregnant. But on Donya's wedding day, he asks her not to get married, that they can work thru this together. Of course she goes through with the wedding, even knowing she doesn't love her fiance the way she should. The next section of the book turns the husband from a good guy into a jerk, which never quite rings true. But I guess if you married the wrong person on purpose you have to find a way to make him a villain to get out of the marriage.

If you read "Accidentally", you know the story: girl and boy hook up; it is very special; girl pushes boy away; girl wants boy back; girl gets boy back. I'd love for the author to find a new prototype for her heroines. The writing style is good. The characters draw you in. But I want to read a different story.
