***5 ‘Butterfly’ Stars***
After the way Bound by Destiny ended I was in a 50/50 split on NEEDING the next book in the series and being absolutely anxiety ridden about it because that ending was just a full on gut buster. I mean I read that last part at least three times because I couldn’t believe it. I still can’t, but it’s all there in black and white.
So, when Bound by Wreckage dropped on the Kindle I was all kinds of excited, but didn’t dive right on in. I took a minute to prepare myself and even then it was a total emotional gut punch.
The FEELS were all kinds of real and had me reeling in more ways than one. I swooned, I cheered, I wanted to gut people with a spoon, I cringed, the panties were all kinds of melted and I fell further into adoration with the entire Ravage MC family. I put this book down once because I needed to, but outside of a mini break, I devoured it in no time flat and still need more.
Nox has always been, up until now, Cooper’s younger brother or Austyn’s twin, but here he definitely slides out from under those labels and shows that though those labels do fit, he is most definitely his own man. He was sweet, charming, compassionate as well as highly intelligent and observant.
Carsyn is a survivor. What she endured would have shattered most people ~ male or female ~ and though there are parts of her that were broken, she never broke. She fought and existed. My heart hurt for her, but I loved watching as she pulled herself up and put herself back together in order to move forward.
As for Nox and Carsyn’s journey. It most definitely falls under the following your gut.kinda insta but not really type of romance and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It fit them and all that they were dealing with as they collided and found that there was a connection between them. It was all kinds of sweet and swoon worthy and the smexy was perfect for them and all that was going on. The angst between them was relatively low, (and thank goodness for that because the chaos swirling around them was intense) but the emotions were heavy and I loved where they were at in the end.
Now, while I loved Nox and Carsyn, a good part of my love of this series are the various and unique members of the Ravage MC family. Quite a bit of my excitement when it comes to diving into these book is getting to spend time with them and this one...it definitely packed a huge punch. If you’ve read Bound by Destiny you KNOW how emotional the ending was and that feeling definitely carried over and tears happened, but that was tempered by laughter and moments that brought tears to the eyes, but in a good way. (And Princess is still the ultimate badass ~ total #girlcrush). And as far as what happens at the end of this one...there is never a dull moment when it comes to the Ravage MC.
