Book Review: Bound by Steel by Connie Lafortune
|5 stars, 1 review|
Connie Lafortuneabout this book: Bound by Steel has been a labor of love and is my third novel in the last two years. It's so surreal, it feels like a dream. So much so, that I have to pinch myself from time to time, just to make sure it's my reality. After all, I'm just a small town girl from northeastern Connecticut who decided to write a book. To become an author. But the one thing I never anticipated was how many wonderful people I'd meet along this journey. Fellow authors, bloggers, Film makers, musicians and composers, just to name a few. And how many of them would become fast friends. One of those friends is none other than Nathan McCree. Tomb Raider Composer, Producer, Sound Designer and Voice Artist. Nathan did a brilliant job with the music and video production of my Book Trailer for Bound by Steel. So, do yourself a favor and make sure to check it out. You'll be glad you did...
Books Laid Bare review:
"This is the most captivating of stories and that is wholly down to the quality with which the author has brought the characters to life, she has infused them with such amazing charisma, given the story so much detail and their situation a sexy edge that I just couldn't help myself, I was hooked."
Island Deb review:
"Bound by Steel is a perfect rainy day, plant yourself on the couch, sipping hot chocolate (or a glass of wine) kind of book. At least, that's what I call them; these dark, edgy, loaded with suspense stories. The stories that you know don't come anywhere near real life but take you on a thrilling, Mission Impossible style journey nevertheless."

Sexy Suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seatI received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
I became a Connie Lafortune fan soon after reading "The Claiming of Callan" and then went on to read "Because Of You". So as soon as I read the blurb about Ryker Steel and Lyra Harper, I was addicted and ready to see where "Bound By Steel" would take me. Connie has found her niche in sexy suspense. She had me tied in knots, biting my nails, and on the edge of my seat. Ryker and Lyra are high on steam, mystery, and angst and had me falling hard for them early on in their story.
Lyra has lived the perfect life until one snowy day when she wakes up in a handsome strangers bed in the middle of nowhere after a near fatal car crash. Her rescuer, for reasons she can't understand, refuses to let her leave. We get to see the inner struggle that Lyra endures as she misses her family and boyfriend Gage and she becomes enchanted by the enigmatic, sexy Ryker who mystifies and seduces her with every breath he takes. Connie takes us along on Lyra's confusing, arousing, enlightening journey while reading from Lyra's point of view. I couldn't help but be drawn in and feel her ever changing emotions.
All I can say is move over Julian because there is a new favorite book boyfriend in town! Ryker is bad ass in every way! He is one of those men you want to slap, sleep with, and wrap your arms around. I wanted to moon over him and ogle all of his body parts from his piercing eyes to his pierced...you get the picture. I was enamored and couldn't wait to get to know this sexy beast from the moment that Lyra opened her eyes and looked into his gorgeous face. I loved delving deep into this mysterious man when reading his point of view and seeing Lyra chisel away at the ice surrounding his heart. I am so in love with Ryker and couldn't imagine a sexier, dirty talking hero for Lyra.
Bound By Steel took me away to a snowy wonderland full of deceit, intrigue, passion, and multiple twists and turns that a reader would never expect. Lyra and Ryker have a tempestuous love story that grabs a hold from the first word and doesn't let go with the last. The beginning is gripping, middle is titillating, and the end is mind blowing. I cannot wait to revisit this fascinating couple again and again! Connie has captivated and impressed me with her talent to pen a riveting and sexy tale. I highly recommend for lovers of breath taking suspense, suffocating heat, and heart wrenching love! [by Catherine Bibby]
