~ 2 Words That Bind Stars ~ Words That Bind is a story filled with magic, mystery, and a little mayhem. Not much on the romance side of things. This story had an interesting concept. I liked the idea, more then the execution. We have Tam who is a social worker and then our djinn Burns. I enjoyed learning about both characters, but I never connected to them, so I never believed that either one fell in love with the other. It felt like the author was more into Tam’s practice and ethics, then into developing the actual romance. The romance it’s self was a very slow burn and when it came to the sex scene, I am not sure how to describe it. It was very wordy and not at all in a hot and bothered kind of way. More mentally feeling the connection, then the actual act of it. Another thing I noticed that got to me was somethings in the story where never finished. An example is the doorway that Tam discovers. Nothing ever comes of it, so it felt odd that there was emphasis on it. There where a few more things like this that the author emphases, but never developed it, so why do that? Last the ending was weird and felt unfinished in a way to me. I did like the spin on the genies and the mystery surrounding them. I also enjoyed how unique and different Tam is. You learn so much about why she draws Burns to her and why she can never break her word. It was unique. Words That Bind left me feeling very undecided by the finish of the novel. It was not the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.

However, they discover she’s the talisman to which Burns, an immortal djinn, has been bound since the days of King Solomon-and that makes it difficult to stay away from him. Ethical guidelines are unequivocal when it comes to personal relationships with clients. However, the djinn has a thawing effect on the usually non-emotive Tam, who begins to feel true emotion whenever he is near. Tam has to make a difficult choice: to stay on the outside, forever looking in-or to turn her back on her entire world, just for the chance to finally experience what it means to fall in love. My Thoughts Ever since she was a child Tamarinda Kerish has longed to understand why other people feel joy, sorrow, cry, get angry, hate and most of all love as she feels none of these emotions.  From an early age Tam approached everything from a detached observatory standpoint, this kept her from ever feeling like she belonged or fit in even with her own family. Now an adult whose profession means dealing with a wide range of people that Tam works with on emotional health issues she still has not experienced emotions for herself, that is until the day new client Mr Burns manages to pierce the professional shell that she has always been so proud of. At first they only dance around the attraction the pair feel for each other, next Tam feels comfortable letting loose her desires in what she thinks is only a dream. Finding out that she has actually compromised her ethics Tam finds herself letting go of the only thing in her life that has given her life purpose, she shuts down her therapy practice and tries to prepares mentally for a life without either her work or the being that she realizes she is in love with. In the world of paranormal romance this does have a somewhat different feel to it, although it is still familiar with the supernatural being with magical abilities who falls in love with the one human who has the power to either be his savior or his doom, I found myself fascinated with the wondrous atmosphere created with words by an author whose imaginative descriptions of her locations and characters made them realistic to the reader as well as fantastical at the same time. What really cinched my enjoyment however was that we were allowed to see how much each main character grew more in touch with what mattered most to bring them true happiness as the story played out, especially Tam. Upon finishing my heart was beating overly fast with the joy of a happy ending, this was a true treat for lovers of one-of-a-kind paranormal romances!  [Digital copy from author in exchange for honest review]
