My Review

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

This book begins with Jaime dreaming; of course, Wren is present as well. Wren is injured, unconscious, and Jaime is losing it. They are at the Academy, and Jaime still has more questions than answers, but she accepts Wren as her mate.

Jaime’s life is full of love, friends, and family but also secrecy and doubt. She doesn’t know who to trust and still has no solutions to her issues. At least her relationship with her brother is amazing and more like actual siblings. It is peculiar reading this story and Jaimes being so lost and alone. She is a true heroine, but a piece of the puzzle is missing with Wren being unconscious. The action in this book finally ramps up, and I’m just as nervous for the end as Jaime is. Omg, this book ends even better than I expected. I really hope there is a sequel that covers more of the future with Jaime and Wren. 

I love this story. It is unlike most of what I read, but I enjoy the slight steam, the intense action, and the heroine in this book. Jaime is a force to be reckoned with, and it shows as she battles her own mind and her feeling in this story and the external obstacles. I love the support she has in the people she loves. Even though this book is different with less relationship stuff, I did enjoy the read. This book is much more action-packed and intense. I liked how the author revealed the person not to be trusted at the end of the story, and it was a complete surprise. 

If you haven’t read the rest of The Academy Series make sure you read them in order to truly understand the Heroine and her family issues. Start with Destiny and then Journey before you read Bound.
