Bound is book 4 in the Supernatural Investigation Agency series and also one of MANY in the Lick of Fire series. I have not read the latter, so can only judge on the former. Though it could POSSIBLY be read alone, I'm afraid there is quite a bit that would be lost if you haven't read at least the two books before this one (Shadows and Secrets and Dark Desires). Just a heads up. Immortal Ties was my favorite of the series, so don't skip it, even if you technically can. ;) The series is primarily based around the Shelton family who are all part fire demon and an interesting bunch. Bound is Katie's book. Katie is Paige's (from Dark Desires) older sister and Rae's (from Shadow's and Secrets) cousin who was apparently an SIA agent all along but just didn't tell her family. She has some issues. As with her kin, she has some emotional issues for sure, though hers come from a different place. As a character she definitely makes you feel the feels, but she also infuriates you with her stubborn mule-headedness. Katie's match is Brax Lane, a Secret Service agent and yet another fire demon who is assigned to the case Katie is leading in Maxxan. I enjoyed Brax's personality pretty much whole hog. He was cocky but kind and as determined as any man can be. Since Katie is Katie (see above description), that's pretty much a necessary. Bound carries on the series overarching plot of both Gunslinger/Red Witch hunting and the insane experiment happy Ridgeway mystery. The story involves Rae and Jordan heavily, and that was fun. Also, more time with Bear the hellhound. Who wouldn't love that? The story has a lot of emotional turmoil that never really slows down, a good dose of action, some fiery flaming goodness from our resident fire demons, a helping of steamy romance, and the solving of at least one of our main mysteries. I'm not sure if there are meant to be more books, but we didn't wrap everything up when all was said and done. My favorite part of the book was probably Duke, Katie's best friend. He was fun and definitely a good counterpoint to the rest of our more serious cast (excepting Rae, of course). I wouldn't mind seeing more of this series as I'd like to see more of the cast. The story got four stars because there were a few questions that got 'lost' as best I can tell and never answered, as well as being written in first person with only the female lead's perspective. I would really have enjoyed some of the male's sides of the story. Overall a fun read. I suggest you read them all. ;)
The hunt continues for the rogue supernaturals who are wreaking havoc on the town of Maxxan. This story follows Katie Shelton who is a SIA agent and in charge of the new base in her hometown Maxxan. Along with fellow family and friends she will give it her all to find the threat to her town and family. Along the way she encounters a sexy Secret Service agent that gives her more feelings than she can take. Will she be able to take out the threat and heal her broken heart in the process? If you’re looking for another action packed and sexy paranormal read I would highly recommend this book! It can be read as a standalone, but for maximum enjoyment I would suggest starting with book one, Shadows & Secrets. Excellent writing and storytelling! Bound is the third book in Jane Hinchey’s Fire & Blood series. I voluntarily received and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. Final Rating: 5 Stars
