    WOW Ms Bennett you have hooked me again I really had a hard time with Blue in the first two books in the Bound by Love series I was skeptical I wasn t sure I could like her knowing what I did, but she blew it out of the park with Blue Persuasion I have definitely been persuaded me to see her for EVERYTHING that she is I just love how Blue fits in with her group of friends and how life was not easy for her, but she never gave in Blakely has a way of developing these characters and you g WOW Ms Bennett you have hooked me again I really had a hard time with Blue in the first two books in the Bound by Love series I was skeptical I wasn t sure I could like her knowing what I did, but she blew it out of the park with Blue Persuasion I have definitely been persuaded me to see her for EVERYTHING that she is I just love how Blue fits in with her group of friends and how life was not easy for her, but she never gave in Blakely has a way of developing these characters and you get into their heads I felt the anguish, self doubt, and fears of Blue I understood her so much better in this book And wow I think I may even be coming around to Bond Although I think he has a way to go The book keeps you involved and wanting to keep turning the pages, even when it s 2am and you have to get up at 6am Then there is Tate, oh lord, half American and American Indian, massive, sexy, tattooed, man The man had some serious issues, but you couldn t deny the chemistry he had with Blue in this book OFF THE CHARTS, someone call 9 1 1 because my iPad just caught on fire There is kink, passion, pop, and above all else the need for these two souls to come together I don t want to give away any spoilers There are many ups and downs, but is t ll worth the ride One thing I adore about Blakely is she incorporates music into these books and I am the type of person that hears songs when I read It was just beautiful Great book, must read, can be read as a stand alone, but I would read the whole series because it s that damn good XONikki

    image error Good grief As if I couldn t love this series or these characters any, Blakely Bennett has divided my heart yet again with Blue s story I ll admit I was never a fan of Blue because of the small tidbits of information we were given in the first two books I was skeptical that I would ever feel a connection with her because of her past actions and her somewhat controversial arrangement with Bond Bennett has managed to take me from teetering from the fence on Blue to full b image error Good grief As if I couldn t love this series or these characters any, Blakely Bennett has divided my heart yet again with Blue s story I ll admit I was never a fan of Blue because of the small tidbits of information we were given in the first two books I was skeptical that I would ever feel a connection with her because of her past actions and her somewhat controversial arrangement with Bond Bennett has managed to take me from teetering from the fence on Blue to full blown stalking her I think the biggest part of my newfound love of Blue as a character has to deal with the explanation of her relationship or lack thereof with Bond For both of them, it sof a safe outlet to fight back the demons in her past and find some semblance of peace in a non threatening sexual situation Blue s past in terms of relationships both sexual and non sexual is definitely not the first love romance story we all hoped to have at her age Those actions have haunted every single relationship she s ever had Blue is a tough little cookie when it comes to fighting her way out of the darkness Bond is her first outlet that she can fully trust, but when newcomer Tate rocks her to her very core can she move onto a new and strange place with someone who s just as damaged as she is, or will she stick with the new comfortable she s grown to know in Bond Tate s rules and regulations of relationships really threw me for a loop How can man who can so passionately pursue someone have so many reservations about his future happiness But, the demons from his very own past could rival those of Blue s The level of chemistry between Tate and Blue s characters and sometimes almost childlike views on how to make their relationship work really resonated to me in the sense that not everyone is emotionally ready or even stable enough to commit to someone For those of you wondering about the steam factor about Tate turn on the AC in your reading room and watch your panties because when Tate wants to come out to play you ll need the fire department on call I think one of the many reasons I love this series is that is gives you a sense that sometimes love knows no boundaries Not every can find what they are looking for in a single person and in order to feel comfortable in their own skin that lovingthan one person may be what s best for them Happily Ever After s for any individual are never going to be the same and why try forcing to stay with society s ideas about what s normal and what s atypical The addition of continuations of the other characters stories as well as the impact of Blue and Bond Tate s relationship on the group dynamic is also something I really enjoy Red, Jaqs, and Bond s story started off this wild ride and I cannot wait to see what comes next I am particularly ready to learnabout Sam as the series continues

    Moving, conflicted and complicated Blue Persuasion is a must read boo This review is a long time coming When I first read about Judy aka Blue in the earlier books, I m not too thrilled with her In a book of her own, I m not sure how I would like her When I see from her eyes, I am torn I feel badly for her and now think poorly of her friends I previously rooted for This just goes to show you, every story has at least two sides Seeing Bond from Blue s view is also a different perspective Moving, conflicted and complicated Blue Persuasion is a must read boo This review is a long time coming When I first read about Judy aka Blue in the earlier books, I m not too thrilled with her In a book of her own, I m not sure how I would like her When I see from her eyes, I am torn I feel badly for her and now think poorly of her friends I previously rooted for This just goes to show you, every story has at least two sides Seeing Bond from Blue s view is also a different perspective It once again shows me, just because a person is not right or does not get along with you, does not mean they are a bad person It just means the fit is not good Bond is a good friend to Blue He is a terrible lover, he does mean well for Blue but he still causes problems for her too So, Bond is still a problem child for me This story reminds me of Blue Monday from one of my favourite bands, New Order How does it feel to treat me like you doWhen you ve laid your hands upon meAnd told me who you areI thought I was mistakenI thought I heard your wordsTell me, how do I feelTell me now, how do I feelThe character development in this book is incredible Ms Bennett pulls emotion from me, messy strands at a time Blue is a person who tries to exercise discretion She tries to be the friend whom her friends rely on and places people first Yet she tries to have and hold something that is not really right for her Her relationship with Bond is just a car accident waiting to happen The readers know it Blue knows it It is nice to see Blue waking up from her rut when she comes into contact with Tate I like and dislike Tate Tate is good for Blue in the sense that she can see there is someone else for her Instead of staying in her isolated world and thinking things will change, Tate is someone who inspires her to wantAnd yet, Tate comes with his complications The way Ms Bennett builds her flawed characters, it hurts so good It hurts because my heart breaks as we learnabout why the characters are the way they are It is so good because it makes me fall for them a bitBlue and Tate are well developed complicated characters The way they action and think represent the culmination of their past experiences From an erotic standpoint, Ms Bennett knows how to crank up the heat The sexual interludes are hot and heavy The sexual tension between Blue and Tate is super charged It is a nice contrast to Blue and Bond s relations This contrast helps up the intensity The ending comes all too soon, leaving a reader wantingRecommended for romance lovers who enjoy angst and new beginningsI received this book as a review copy in return for an honest review

    Another great hit by Author Blakely Bennett Blue Persuasion had me from the first few pages While I didn t like Blue at first from the other two books. I soon learned that even someone as beautiful as Blue is full of doubts Everyone deserves love, but like Blue we sometimes settle for less because we think that is all we are going to get I just love Blakely s style of writing because I am totally able to picture myself as Blue I am able to feel Blue s emotions and that means everything t Another great hit by Author Blakely Bennett Blue Persuasion had me from the first few pages While I didn t like Blue at first from the other two books.

    This was a five star read for me and I rarely give that rating out I loved every part of this book It had just enough of everything, sex, romance, and conflict Most series I love the first book and then the following books don t measure up but with the Bound By Your Love series the books keep getting better and better I think one thing that helps is that because the characters are so interconnected their stories keep developing in each book You keep get move of everyone.Blue, I didn t reall This was a five star read for me and I rarely give that rating out I loved every part of this book It had just enough of everything, sex, romance, and conflict Most series I love the first book and then the following books don t measure up but with the Bound By Your Love series the books keep getting better and better I think one thing that helps is that because the characters are so interconnected their stories keep developing in each book You keep get move of everyone.Blue, I didn t really feel connected with her in the past books, but after reading this book I loved her You really get to know her character and about her past and present conflicts situations She s been through a lot but she easily forgives, has a large heart, and loves those she cares about hard She is also very open sexually Both scenes between her and Bond and her and Tate were extremely hot Bond he s the guy you hate to love Unable to be satisfied with one woman, yet he has so much love to give He really grew on me in this book He becomes less selfish and has really started to mature He has his own way of loving, but if you re in his circle he s there for you no matter what I loved his and Blue s relationship The both have demons and really understand each other Tate, oh you HOT HOT man He s dark and mysterious but is sexy and is packing I believe it was referred to as an anaconda He s been hurt in the past, doesn t trust easily, and has sworn love off His mouth and his creativity will melt your panties off The chemistry between him and Blue is off the charts Seriously Blakely Bennett writes some of the best sex scenes I have ever read They aren t too much but are extremely detailed and extremely hot This is a story about learning to move on from the past, loving yourself, and finding the perfect person for you There are a lot of ups and downs and so much happens within the entire group I love all the characters and through these books and Blakely s Writing I feel like I am part of the gang I can t wait to see what else she has in store and which direction the story sn going to go I highly recommend this series and although they can be read as standalones I would read them in order to get the whole effect of the group dynamic
