When he’s taken in by the wealthy Conway family who found him near death, he hoped it would be the new start he craved.
What be didn’t expect was to find himself falling for the youngest Conway, Cassie.
He can’t keep his eyes off the hot yet innocent housemate…or his hands.
Cassie is everything Leo knows he can’t have. Shouldn’t have.
But that doesn’t stop him from wanting her.
Growing closer by the day, combined with the off-the-charts chemistry, makes for an unstoppable connection that Leo just can’t fight.
To the outside Cassie lives a perfect life. Only, it’s not quite as perfect as it may seem.
Dancing is Cassie’s only focus…until Leo walks into her life, making her realize she’s met the one guy who could change her future… the one man that could shatter her heart.
Can the pair overcome all that stands in their way or are they bound to break?
Bound to Break was a great 5 star read and book one in the Bound to series.
This is my first read from Rachael Tonks and she pulled me right in.
We start the story with Cassie seeing Leo outside their gate, injured. She quickly runs out and her and her stepmother take Leo to the hospital.
We jump ahead a few months, Cassie hasn’t been able to stop thinking about Leo. When she literally runs into him at her house she is surprised. He’s there for a job, which means she will see more of him.
I did a horrific thing, but it was all I had left. I did what I needed to do to survive. – Leo
Leo is grateful for the job and place to stay, however he has a secret that he has to make sure doesn’t get out. Will he be successful? Cassie and Leo had such a connection it came right off the pages. But, there is someone else that seems to have an interest in Leo and will do anything to keep them apart.
There is so much more to this great read. We learn that these two have a lot in common. We get some huge twists and turns that really threw me, wow. The secondary characters are great but I really don’t like the stop monster. We do get a cliffhanger that has left me wanting more. I need book two now. I look forward to reading more from this author.
