The Ties That Bind


Elle is an innocent college girl who walks into the wrong bar. Alec is a desperate man trying to rescue his wayward sister from her drug dealer. A dealer who happens to be Elle’s respectable doctor father. When their paths cross unexpectedly, Alec kidnaps Elle to use as leverage in a last-ditch attempt to save his sister. What starts out as a hostage situation quickly evolves into something more as both Alec and Elle fall hard for each other, their growing feelings and off-the-charts sexual chemistry impossible to fight. But with both their families on the line, will they choose their blood? Or each other?

My Thoughts

Quick little spicy kidnapping novelette.

It was an enjoyable read, and the spice was written well!! It was very steamy and enjoyable. The rest of the story was quick, but being a short novelette that is to be expected.

The 2 main characters dynamic was really interesting. How easy is it to be scared of/hate someone you are extremely attracted to? Can you stay scared of them, or does your attraction dampen that fear? Does them kidnapping you make a difference? Does their father kidnapping your sister make a difference?

The one thing I would have liked to see more of is the character development and plot development. Now, it is a novelette so that means it is a short story and there wasn’t a ton of space for more of that, but I would have liked to know a bit more about them.

If you are looking for a fast and spicy kidnapper read, then pick The Ties That Bind by Piper Rhodes up!

Is it worthy of a re-read? Let's get to reading and find out. If I love it I might start immediately over again...who knows? Genres: fantasy, romantasy, smut, sci-fi, dark romance, and more! I read on average 2-4 books per week, and average 150+ books per year. I am passionate about reading books and sharing my reviews and discussing books with like minded readers and friends. One of my favorite parts of reading a good book is mentally processing the contents and getting to share my thoughts about it both online and in person with those around me.
