Riley Hart is a single mom to an adopted daughter who has already faced more in her young life than most adults. Chase Dixon came into their lives as an act of pure generosity and selflessness and from the first time he lays eyes on Mickey and Riley he is a goner. They may be moving fast, but when you know, you know. And, when Riley and Mickey’s happiness is threatened, Chase will do everything in his power to make things right.
My heart melted for this book from the very first meeting that Chase has with Riley and Mickey. It’s literally like a real life fairy tale and captured my heart and attention. Chase may have thought he was a confirmed bachelor, but this mom and daughter had him longing to be a part of their lives. He was really amazing with how he allowed both ladies into his heart so quickly, making them both feel happy, safe and oh so loved while still being the Alpha male and protector that he is at his very core.
Riley is an amazing woman and mom. She would do anything for Mickey, including putting her own life on hold to adopt and raise her while keeping Mickey’s birth mother’s memory alive for the young girl. I adored that Chase is something she never expected or saw coming. And, Mickey . . . she adorable, charming, sweet, oh so smart and just a burst of loving energy and sunshine! While I loved her with Chase, her relationship with Tuff and Meat tugged at every emotion I have!
Blood Bound was a beautiful and unexpectedly emotional story. It’s got plenty of suspense, but the bad guys are not the typical we see in a Samantha A. Cole book (meaning terrorists or kidnappers or something of that sort) and that’s what made this book really stand out. And, that ending . . . left me looking and feeling like the emoji with a giant grin and heart eyes! 5 stars!
