Overview

We set the rules...

Well, I set the rules... he agreed.

I left before we could break them, or so I thought I had...

Ella Connolly is looking forward to starting a new adventure in her life. After putting her party girl, headline-grabbing tabloid exploits behind her, she has become a responsible and successful entrepreneur. Moving across the pond to Manhattan, she's determined to make the dream for her boutique to become an international retail brand come true.

While in the States, her overprotective brother insists she have a fulltime security detail. This complicates Ella's plans in more ways than one.

Alex Robertsen's life is in shambles. After losing the woman he loves to his brother, he's been on a steady diet of booze and easy women in an effort to make himself numb. Things needed to change.

Change is good.

Good, that is, until Alex finds himself thrust into an all too familiar situation.

He's obligated by a professional oath to protect Ella at all costs.

She's vowed to not let distractions, even the ruggedly handsome ones, keep her from her goals.

But old habits die hard...

We'd broken the rules... more than once.

We were bound to... and we agreed it was worth the risk.

He left before it shattered us both... or so we thought.

Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

If you’ve read the Scripted Series by Ms. Pastore, then you already know about Ronan’s little sister Ella. Don’t get your knickers in a twist, you don’t have to read it first, but you should eventually … because Ronan. Anyhoo, so Ronan being the overprotective big brother, hires Alex Robertsen as her shadow. Oh wait, guess what, they had a little bow-chic-a-bow-bow moment the night before they met. Can I say how much I adored Ella! She was extremely sassy which made me love her even more. She’s in the U.S. trying to get her clothing business up and running, now if she only find the right place. Alex is seriously yummy from the start. I will admit, reading the Prologue, I thought I was going to get a very distant and brooding Alex, but he really took his duty in protecting Ella seriously, and of course, he also took his duty in loving her as well. But will Alex’s past as a special operative get in the way of really giving his all to Ella? Will Ella’s party girl ways from back in the days come to haunt her now in the present? Ms. Pastore’s words are refreshing and insightful. I did love the element of suspense she threw at me, so unexpected, but she did it and wrote it well. I loved how NYC and Montauk was visually appealing and wanting me going for a 2 hour drive just to go hang out in Montauk. If you’re looking for a strong independent heroine with a bit of sass and a sexy alpha hero, then Bound to Me is just for your reading pleasure. This is by far my favorite of Ms. Pastore’s books. Her writing keeps getting stronger, and I look forward to more of her words and writing chops in the near future.

This is the first book by Christy I have read and I loved it. Ella and Alex have a one night stand and they don’t even tell each other their real names. After all Ella figured she would never see him again. Then the next day she meets the body guard her brother hired for her while she is in town and there stands the guy she slept with the night before. Alex can’t believe his luck. He sees this as his chance to get to know Ella like he wants. They are both trying to move past something. Ella is trying to get on with her life after her party girl ways and a bad situation with an ex. Alex has been somewhat stuck for the last several years. Will they be able to help each other move on? Will Alex let his past fears and guilt effect his relationship with Ella? They both have baggage; Alex more than Ella. Guilt is a powerful emotion and so is fear. Alex finds himself in a similar situation as ones he has had in the past. Ella worries that the past will repeat itself. While they are attracted to each other and want there to be something more between them will they be able to follow their feelings and hearts? I really enjoyed this book and it pulled me in. Alex has a need to protect but fears getting to close and that affecting his ability to protect those he loves. This book really pulls at the heart string during certain parts; which makes you pull for the characters even more. I am eager to read more books in this series. I was given this book in return for an honest review.
