A cliff-hanger. And short to boot. I never thought Melody Anne would stoop to this tactic. I have over 10 books by this author and use to pre-order when available. Not anymore. I'll wait to see the reviews and wean myself off this author. All the Anderson books though connected were stand alone and great. If she just wants to make more money by splitting a book in two, she should consider just writing the full book and charging for it. This is a bad move on her part. I hope someone on her team reads these reviews and realizes how many readers she has upset. What a way to go Melody!

Really enjoyed this book - became involved in the characters. But I HATE cliffhanger books and wish I knew this was one before I purchased. I only buy books that say they are cliffhangers when the series is completed. I think it should have to be indicated because I won't remember the story well enough by the time the December release is here.

I love Melody Anne but I hate cliffhangers. I don't know if I will survive until December to find out what happens. Relinquish Control is a escort club that has rich clients who pay for anything they want. Jewel is living on the streets and trying to get her brother out of foster care. She can't find a job even though she is college educated, she has no experience. She is sleeping in an abandon building one night when a lady wakes her about going to work for her. She gives her a card with the address on. Jewel goes to the address and states she wants the job. They start on her training. Blake is used to getting what he wants when he wants it. A friend told him about this club so he came to check it out. He is taking a tour but doesn't see anyone he likes. They try to impress him by taking him places others do not see. In his tour he comes across Jewel. He tells the owner he wants her and she tells him she is not done training. He said he will pay triple, he wants her. Little does Blake know she is a virgin and she has very little experience. Go on this journey with these two as Jewel learns things she didn't know and she struggles to not fight with Blake so she can keep her job. This book does contain sexual scenes so it might not be for everyone. (less)

I have to admit that I'm kinda over the whole BDSM/Domination thing, and when I first started reading this book I thought it was going to be another 50 Shades (which I didn't particularly enjoy), but as the story developed, the more I was sucked into the lives of these two amazing characters, and I just couldn't put it down for a second. Although Blake was controlling, he didn't take it to extremes, even though he threatened many times. This book was seductive, sensual and filled with plenty of sexual tension. The passion between Blake and Jewell was HOTTT, and left me flustered more than once. I enjoyed the playfulness that often touched their interactions and it was easy to forget that Jewell was just a plaything Blake had hired for the week. This book was a little predictable, with these two strangers from opposite worlds meeting under unusual circumstances, slowly developing feelings they both refused to acknowledge, but the ending left me wanting more. I did not expect this book to come to such an abrupt halt, and the final scene broke my heart because so much could have been avoided, and the situation could have been so different if only Blake hadn't been so stubborn, always expecting the worst from every woman he came into contact with. I cannot wait for Broken, to see if things will fall into place for these two wonderful people. Not only do I hope that they will face their feeling for each other, but I pray that everything works out for Jewell and Justin, and that Blake can finally let go of the past that haunts him.

I loved, loved, loved this book. At first I absolutely hated Blake and fell in love with Tyler. Then Blake became an even bigger ass. When he accused Jewel of being a liar and went ballistic on her I cried for her. My heart was being tore apart for her little brother Justin. What a sweet sweet little boy who was trying to deal with losing his mom and then to be taken away from his sister too and placed in foster care. My heart was breaking. I was crying so hard I couldn't see. I can't stand it that I have to wait until December to find out what happens. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

Great book!   He's angry from his past and she's just trying to save her future.  Forced to take a job she doesn't want, but desperate to keep her brother, she meets Blake.  Her first time, her first client. Blake was forced to watch something terrible happen at an early age and that has left him angry and bitter. His hope is to use Jewell for a week to take his mind of the anniversary of that something terrible.   During that week Jewell is awakened to passion she's never known and Blake is feeling things he swore he's never feel again. What happens when the week is up?  Will she stay? Will he make her go? You have to read to find out!   Enjoy!

How sad that this author stooped to linking male dominance and control with romance and sexual pleasure. Really makes me question whether I want to read anything that she writes.

I have had this book for a little bit but have been way behind on my reading. I finally was able to sit down and read it and I loved it! Blake and Jewell's story is awesome! It had some very hot scenes and then at times you wanted to strangle a character lol. It had me hooked from the first page and after finishing it, I went directly and bought book 2. I can't wait to see what plays out with Blake and Jewell. No sleep for me tonight! Another fantastic book Melody Anne!!!

Liked this book. Couldnt stand how Blake acted so arrogent. And how he treated Jewell. The ending is a big cliffhanger But i still liked it. Lots of hot and steamy parts. I normally dont like cliffhanger books but i bought the next book already and cant wait to read it.

Melody Anne is one of my favorite authors and I will read pretty much everything she writes. Apart from saying that, I have to say that I really loved reading Bound. I can safely say that this has been one of my favorite reads recently. The story is captivating and intriguing. and it kept me glued to my kindle until the last word. The characters are more than well developed and feel like real people with real problems. The story in itself is heartbreaking and the past of both Blake and Jewell are peppered with memories that can destroy their future together. I have to admit that I loved the contradictions in Blake's character. On one side he is cold, rude, dominant and needs control over everything and everyone. He doesn't trust anyone besides his brothers which given what he wen't through as a kid, is quite understandable. He is also has a smoldering grey gaze and pantie melting body which combined with his skills in bed and his attitude ,make him that more appealing. He is just the ultimate hero in need of saving ;) On the other hand, I loved the glimpses of his tender and caring side and as his friend Bill said "his heart of gold". That contrast made him even more interesting as a character and made me want to find each facet of his character. On first glance, Jewell looks like an innocent and scared young woman, and in a way she is that. But going through everything she had to go through and all the misfortunes in her life made her also strong. In a way Blake brings that strength in her out but he also finds the passionate and caring woman beneath the surface. In my opinion Blake and Jewell are the other halves of each other. On one hand Jewell's innocence and caring and loving nature can heal Blake's wounds. And on the other hand, Blake brings the strength in Jewell and can provide her with a shoulder to lean on when she needs it. I can't wait to read the conclusion to their story in Broken, which is coming out in just a little bit more than a week :)
