Ari’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
The Bound Collection by Stephie Walls was a but of a departure from what I previously have read from her. I’ve read her novellas and her co-authored series which tend to be lighter. TBC was an emotional 900+ page boxed set with all the feels.
The three book collection consists of Bound, Freed, and Redemption. Bound follows Annie and Gray. Their relationship is tumultuous to say the least. Gray is a bad boy down to his bones. Annie, who’s already fighting demons of her own and trying desperately to numb them with substance abuse, loves him so desperately she can’t let him go even when he does.
Freed is a continuation of Annie’s story with the introduction of Bret into her and Gray’s story. As Annie is at her lowest point she meets Bret. He’s everything that Gray isn’t. He’s supportive, caring, and all about Annie. Bret is book hero perfection! His love and support for Annie was everything and I just wanted to jump into the story and hug him.
Redemption featured Dan and Lisa who were secondary characters in both Bound and Freed. Lisa didn’t think love would find her until Dan walked into her life. I really enjoyed their story and I’m a sucker for cute/funny pets in stories so Ioved Lisa’s kitty, Cosmo.
I really enjoyed all three stories. All emotional and page turners, but since all three stories technically follow the same timeline, the stories do seem to jump around a little. Aside from that Stephie Walls has delivered a fantastic box set and I definitely recommend! 4 stars.
