  *Recommended for audiences over the age of 18* Forced to return to her hated hometown to work, Christina Martin, lawyer and ex resident bad girl, finds herself questioning her life choices. Reunited with her former husband, Nicholas Riley, their tenuous and complicated relationship is tested when secrets from the past and present are revealed. Riley, a man with explosive secrets and penchant for psychological games, faces the dilemma of keeping the woman he loves through lies by omission or potentially losing her with the truth. This isn’t just their second chance for happiness, it’s their last chance and there may be some things that love can’t conquer at all. Equal parts helped and hindered by a colorful cast of supporting characters, ‘Ties that Bind’, Book Two in the Complicated Love Series, continues the dysfunctional relationship of Riley and Dina introduced in ‘Lost in Flight’. Warning: This book is not about bondage. I have nothing against books about bondage. Heck, I’ve been known to read a few works myself, but it’s just this book isn’t one of them. Unless, of course, you’re referring to the tangible and intangible bonds of human relationships, ties that bind and ties that can be broken. Then, this book is definitely about that. ‘Ties that Bind’ is not a standalone and forms part of a series. It is highly recommended that you read Book One, ‘Lost in Flight’ before this one. Also, this series is full of quirky, socially awkward, and badly behaved characters, underpinned with dark humor. It is not a traditional romance and there is no guarantee of happy ever afters. 51289-add-to-goodreads-button

My monsters are loose and I don’t think I can get them back under control. I’m not sure if I want to. If I were you, I’d run.” Black_scroll_with_transparent_background 3   Review     Black_scroll_with_transparent_background 3 Black_scroll_with_transparent_background 3   Author Bio   Neeny Boucher   Neeny Boucher is a nom de plume because my real name sounds like a 19th Century suffragette. Originally, I'm from New Zealand and am a long-time supporter of the All Blacks. Currently, I am living in Europe and a trailing spouse, following my husband all over the world for his work. This not only gives me the opportunity to write, but also, experience the world and indulge in one of my favourite past-times: people watching. My own employment history is varied and ranges from the sublime to the ridiculous. All of those experiences and encounters, however, have allowed me to collect amazing stories, which now form the basis of my writings. I have always loved the weird, the outcast and those on the margins of society because they see the world in a different way. These are the people my characters are based around. I have a BA Hons (English and Pacific Studies) and a PhD in Sociology/Indigenous Studies. Presently, I am working on the Complicated Love Series. Book One, Lost in Flight, was released in 2013. Book Two, Ties that Bind, is scheduled for release in 2014.

My Review: I give this book 4 big hearts. This book is a hauntingly beautiful love story that takes you on this ride that I can't even explain. I really enjoyed this book and I didn't even read book one cause I had know idea there was one. I was a little lost in the beginning but the book does come full circle. This book truly is a love story of epicness. It's a story of how even when you hurt the ones you love I a mean really hurt them and break them down they can still love you because your the other half of their soul. Christina has been put through the ringer by Riley. Their were points that I wanted to shut the book put it down and walk away because I couldn't even take his shit anymore but I forged on. I'm so glad I did because you learn some of why Riley does what he does and he finally has to come to terms with it. He doesn't totally blame what he does with what is going on with him. They have this strange but full support group including family and friends. If you do one thing this year go pick up this series. You will need tissues and drink of choice to make it through but it was soooooooooooooooo worth the emotions you will go through.
