I want her with everything I am. It's a need so deep that all I can do is push her away. But, that's who I am--it's what I do. Anyone who dares to get too close, I shove away--out of my reach. The damage of my past won't let me move forward--won't let me love her.

But now, she's in danger, and I refuse to let anything happen to her. Come Hell or high water, I will protect her. Or die trying...


It was all about sex. At least, that's what I told myself. I refused to let Magnum have my heart. But when the anniversary of my tragic past comes back to haunt me, it's Magnum who's there to save me--from my past and from the demons who torment me. Time heals all wounds, but this time, the pain just might be incurable. Can Magnum fix what was destroyed so long ago?

Bonded (Twisted Hearts Love Story #3) By Autumn Sand 5 Stars!! Ok the first thing that I would like to point out is that the book CAN in fact be read as a STANDALONE!! This was the first book in the series that I have read and I did not feel like I was missing out by not reading the first two. But I will be reading them very soon!! This is my second book (first being Joe Football) that I have read by Autumn and I just can’t believe it has taken me this long to discover this authors amazingness! I really enjoyed this book and it made me giggle in a few scenes and it also had some hot hot hot scenes too! There are some parts of the characters past that are just so heartbreaking, but she ends up making it all better with the happily ever after! This story is about a girl named Brenda who unfortunately hasn’t had the best of luck in the dating/men department. The troubling things that haunt her past begin to take a toll on her present when strange and disturbing things keep happening to her. This is where Magnum comes in… Holy Cow Batman! Magnum is so sexy! I just can’t put into words how hot this man is!! Like Brenda, he also has a past that haunts him. He is forced to relive what happened to him when he was younger every night through terrible nightmares. He is so afraid to sleep at night, he is becoming a zombie. Using everything (the gym and countless women) he can to distract him and keep him awake. BUT then he meets Brenda. They become close when Magnum learns of the weird things going on in her life and he soon wants to be the one that protects her from them. The things in the past might force these two apart. Magnum needs to talk about what happened to him and let Brenda into his heart. But can he face the past and move on? Brenda is having trouble letting go and trusting Magnum. What if he is just another man that just wants to tear her down? When the past comes knocking at her door disguised with good intentions, will she be able to shake her past and stay safe? Or will she get pulled under and never be able to let her heart trust again? If you are looking for a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat and keep you wanting more, than go get this book now!! I loved it and I think you will too!! Review by Anastasia D.

Bonded (a Twisted Hearts Love Story) by Autumn Sand. Rated 5 stars Holy Smokes! This book is amazing! I was leery of this book because of what I thought it was about but I selected it because I read Joe Football by Autumn Sand and completely LOVED that book so I decided to take the plunge and I sure am happy I did. This story is highly emotional as we are put into the worlds of these two characters. One reason I like Autumn Sand’s books is they seem to make me think of the other side of the coin. Meaning a when tragedy happens I seem to look at only one side of the story. Ms Sand makes me look at another side. It's sad to me how much the scars ( emotional, physical even verbal) that are left behind on a victim can affect the rest of a their life. Even a bystander, like Magnums mother, can affect the outcome the victim has. This story is mostly about Magnum and Brenda. Magnum is a guy who I would probably cross the street to walk by but after reading this I would hope I could stay on the same side and give him the benefit of the doubt. It gave me a completely different outlook on him. He seems very worldly until he sees Brenda again. Then he becomes very protective and I was surprised at how quickly he gave up his ways for Brenda. I have not read the other two books in this series and I was fine reading this one without their backstory. The only thing was it made me curious about the other characters from the last two books. Tick sounds like someone I wouldn't want to mess with.

Bonded – Twisted Hearts Love Story # # by Autumn Sand Bonded can be read as a stand-alone but I really thing you want to read the first two for the full background on the story. In Twisted Hearts we get to see what Manny & Anaya and Tick & Cyma again. Oh my gosh you guys, this is a CRAZY story of demons from the past, obsession, love, healing, emotion, and closure. As in the past Twisted Hearts stories, there is an overall theme of “hope and lessons learned all the while finding love and happiness. Most importantly knowing it does not make you weak when you learn to depend on another to help you”. Magnum is a tatted, muscled, mean mug type of guy that you would not want to pass alone in an alley. He is loyal to his friends, willing to do what needs to be done, and knows exactly why he is the way he is. He does not hide his past as a victim of child abuse. Magnum is a guy who allows himself to feel the feelings he needs to in order to free himself. It was a pleasure reading a guy who is so in tune with himself. Brenda is a nurse who has a past she is hiding. She is compassionate and kind. She is a strong woman who works on a pediatric cancer floor so has seen her share of sadness. (I was so happy to read another strong woman character). They come together in such a way that each has to rely on the other and help each other to move forward. I haven’t read a story quite like this in the past. It’s usually the “knight in shining armor” coming to save the day. In this story, they are each other’s “knights” Autumn Sand has written a story that weaves twists and turns and intrigue and from page 1 I was anxious to get to “The End” to find out what happens. I was not disappointed and would recommend this entire series.

Bonded is the third book in Autumn Sand’s Twisted Hearts Love Story series and absolutely, you can read it as a standalone but why should you? She has written two other amazing books that will get you hooked on the series and in reality, we do meet BOTH of the main characters in the previous two books and of course, all the sidekicks! You would never expect that a series can get so much better with each book but you would be wrong, there is something about the way Autumn writes that simply spell bounds you and you are like a fly in a spider’s web and she keeps coming at you again and again and again. You cry your heart out, you scream, you blush, you rage, you cannot put the book down, you check if there will be more books in the series (and thank God, there is a fourth book listed on Goodreads so I know at some point in time, there will be another one!!). Bonded is the story of Carl CJ “Magnum” Miller and Brenda Johnson. Both of them carry heavy burden of their past and do not trust the people and do not think that they would ever be worthy/ready for a relationship. When Brenda sees Magnum for the first time, she does not think of happily ever after, she is thinking of a hot and steamy one night stand. When Magnum meets the spunky Brenda for the first time, he knew that he was in trouble and his need for her ran way too deep so he knew what he had to do – push her away … Add to this all the past that does not stay buried, a grisly anniversary coming and you have a recipe for an amazing story! Thank you Autumn and please, do not keep us waiting too long!

Bonded: A Twisted Hearts Love Story by Autumn Sand is the third book in her A Twisted Hearts Love Story series. I highly recommend you read the two previous books before this one as you will get a better knowledge of the characters but it can be read as a standalone. This story has a little bit of everything in it, suspense, action and even the hot romance. One of the things I enjoy about this author is her creativity she has with her characters and the situations she puts them in. These characters will take you on a roller coaster ride that you will not want to get off. There are twists and turns in this story that will keep you sitting on the edge of your seat and other times saying, really? Find out what happens with these characters are faced with their haunted pasts. Magnum set eyes on her over a year ago. She is everything that he wants and needs. This need goes so deep that all he can think of doing is pushing her away. But this is who he is and what he does. Anyone who gets to close, he shoves away and out of his reach. His past is to damaged, it just won't let him love her. Now she is in danger and he can't let anything happen to her. There is nothing that will stop him from protecting her even if it means he dies trying. Brenda also has a past that is really damaged and hasn't allowed herself to heal. She kept telling herself it was just sex. She just refuses to let him have her heart. What will happen when the anniversary of the tragic event comes back to haunt her? Will it be him who is there to save her from her demons and past that torment her? Time heals all things but will the pain be to much for her? Can he fix what has haunt her, hurt her all these years? Magnum and Brenda's relationship is one that has been troubled by both of their pasts. Will they both be strong enough to heal and survive the pain? Will they be able to get past the life struggles in order to be together? Is it possible to break the bonds that how these characters to their pasts? These are two strong characters that you will have compassion for and what they have gone through. You will enjoy to see how they grow throughout the story. They need to create new bonds to hold them together but will they be able to? In my opinion Brenda is broken inside and just needs to learn to heal and let go. She needs to learn to trust that he won't hurt her, he only wants to protect her and love her. Magnum is so compassionate for her that he just wants to keep her safe no matter what happens to him. They are really great and hot together, they keep you engaged throughout the story. We can't forget the secondary characters as well. They are strong and complement the two main characters. These characters will leave you wanting more. Find out if the bonds of their past are to strong to break or if they will create their own bonds that can't break. I am not sure how many books of Autumn Sand I have read but with each book they keep getting better and better as they go. I enjoy seeing characters from previous books and what happens to them. Autumn was born and raised in New York. She loves collecting shoes, reading, writing and traveling. She doesn't consider herself an author as she considers herself a person who writes words that people enjoy reading. This is a fast paced story that will keep you reading until the end. You will need to see what is behind every page. I had a hard time putting this book down in parts and I kn

Bonded: A Twisted Hearts Love Story by Autumn Sand 5 Stars I just love this series, I love the characters so much and love that they are all in each book. This is the story of Brenda and Magnum and I couldn't wait to read it after falling in love with Brenda in the previous book. These can be read as standalones, but you would be missing out on some great history if you don't read them all in order. Magnum and Brenda both have pasts that haunt them. They each have their own reasons for not getting involved with any kind of serious relationships. They have a connection through mutual friends and even went out a couple times which resulted in him not returning any calls and then nothing. They were each attracted to each other and if it hadn't been for their pasts they probably would have pursued it further. When a family emergency brings Magnum to town and he runs into Brenda, his want for her returns but all he does is push it away. But when she receives a message from her tragic past he can't help himself, he will protect her or die trying. Now if he could just get her to open up and let him in, but can he do the same? She knows he has serious demons and wants desperately to help him, but how can she when she's battling her own? As the anniversary of her tragic past approaches, can Magnum get to the truth and save her in time? Can these two broken people get past their fears and tragic pasts and find their HEA? This author has a way with molding her words around the best stories. She knows how to manipulate you into thinking you know what's coming and I can just imagine her sitting there at her computer with an evil laugh as she knows she's messing with your mind, and then there you are begging for more LOL She is a favorite of mine now and I will be stalking her waiting for word on what she has in store for me next.
