College senior Kate Camden has learned to adapt - to her last year of school, to the promise of motherhood, to the fact that she’s doing it all alone. But just when she’s learned to adjust, heartache threatens to break her apart.
Pro hockey player Jason “Ryke” Ryker has it all: adoring fans, a promising career, and a beautiful wife. But when his seemingly perfect life is shaken by tragedy, he’s left questioning whether having it all is ever more than an illusion.
When circumstance brings Kate and Ryke together, they discover they don’t have to hurt alone. Bound by a grief that haunts them both, they must rely on one another to survive heartbreak. But that grief is more powerful than they realize, and the tie that binds them together may ultimately tear them apart.
I love Hockey Romances. My favorites series is the Off Campus series by Elle Kennedy and Carolina Fury Series by Sawyer Bennett. There is something about the game of hockey and the romances that it brings that just keeps me engaged.
Bound is the first book in the series Fire and Ice series. It’s the story of Ryke and Kate. Ryke and Kate meet at grief support group. Ryke hires Kate to be his assistant. Over the period of 3 months, they fall in love. In the story they overcome the obstacles of starting a relationship and overcoming their baggage.
I enjoyed the pacing of the book. It was so good that I couldn’t put it down. In the span of a day I ended up reading Bound and Captive which is the follow up to Kate and Ryke’s story.
The characters were well developed. My only complaint was that there wasn’t enough hockey scenes. We only got a few of them.
DISCLOSURE: I received an ARC in exchange of my review. The opinions are my own.
I did buy book 2 and 3 in the series as I will continue reading it.
