|From Nicole Flockton comes the intense, emotional conclusion of her bestselling Bound trilogy…
Reclusive, exclusive, and world renowned, Jeffrey Courteux might get a lot of attention for his exquisite jewellry, but he keeps his personal life under tight wraps. His solitary life fuels his creativity and keeps him sane, and he’s not willing to give it up – until a pair of sexy legs in killer heels makes hiding away less appealing than it used to be…
Smart, driven, and ambitious, Greta Adamas knows she’s the only suitable candidate for Vice-President of her family’s advertising firm. Landing the Jeffrey Courteaux account for his new line of jewellry will only catapult her to the upper echelons of the advertising world, and nothing will keep her from achieving her dreams – not even the overwhelmingly attractive designer who won’t leave her thoughts…
Mixing business with pleasure is always a potent cocktail, but one with consequences. What happens when two people who know what they want suddenly want something completely different – and completely out of their reach?
Not sure how to start this one. This couple has to be one of my top 5 couples of all time. Yes, all time. And no, I’ve never shared my other 4 on this blog. I might later on but not today. He He! I’ve never read a book where the couple were in sync with each other like Jeff and Greta. Sure that had some misunderstandings but what couple doesn’t. Where they perfect? Oh no. Jeff messed up a couple of times but realized his mistakes and always apologized to Greta.
Greta is one of those heroines that is smart, almost too smart for her own good. She has major issues with her dad and that puts her job in jeporady with Jeff’s account. Of course, Nick and Luc manage to save her from her dad in the best possible way. 😉 I wouldn’t want to meet those two in an alley any time soon. Ruthless doesn’t even explain them when it comes to business. The best part…they both realized that Greta was perfect for the job and for Jeff.
Jeff was mysterious to me in a many ways. What’s with the sunglasses and the other name? I understand that he valued his privacy but thankfully, Ms. Flockton let us and Greta in and the rouse. I hate the whole “who is this guy” plot thread. Get on with it already and she did. Bravo. I must tell you that this category romance at its finest. I’m sure how to classify this one. The other two were easy for me to pick but not so much Jeff and Greta’s story. But that’s the beauty of category romance. Sometimes there are no ONE category that it falls in.
Without going into much detail, this book and conclusion to the trilogy is brilliant. Great characters and OMG, the secondary characters are fantastic. I read this one first and then devoured the first two within two days. Each book stands on its own simply because with only a few sentences Ms. Flockton shows you the characters. I immediately wanted to know more about Nick and Luc as soon as I met them in this book. Yes, she’s that good and it doesn’t happen often in my book that an author can do that in a trilogy.
In some ways I wish this book never ended. I want to know Jeff and Greta more. I could read their stories forever. I would read about their kids. Yes, I’m that obsessed with them and I think you will be too.
*disclaimer* I’m a huge fan of Escape Publishing. They are a imprint of Harlequin and the quality of books that I have read from their authors is some of the best in the business. Just saying…
Mini review: I wish I could say that I loved this book but Luc was more a miss for me. At times, I really wanted to slap the crap out of him. I didn’t care for his attitude towards Jasmine at all. Too heavy handed for me. On the flip side, Jasmine was totally AWESOME! She managed to put Luc in his place every single time but it was exhausting at times. He never once questioned her dad about the accident or even let her explain why she didn’t remember him. He is redeemed in the end and I liked that.
Of course this being the first book in the trilogy, we get more of them as they appear in the other books and my taste for Luc improved greatly. Especially in Nick and Pamela’s book. Oh boy…I almost swooned for him in that one.
