In Bound By Time by A.D. Trosper, we meet Isobel Moore as she is getting ready to go home from college on her summer break, a place that is filled with love and warmth, only to be wrapped in a feeling of foreboding as she enters the home and sees the antique stained glass window her loving adopted mother has had installed during renovations.
Her adopted parents are leaving the country for the summer and the house will be all hers until their return. Her father warns her to stay away from the new next door neighbor, a man he finds more than a little intimidating. Well, needless to say, she’s intrigued, as well as any red-blooded woman would be with the likes of Damien.
There wasn’t a single part of this book that I didn’t love. The character building was strong and drew the reader in. The start of the book finds Isobel almost crippled with fear to the point of having anxiety attacks. The reader attains a strong sense of intimacy with Isobel as we are witness to her growing into her destiny and shedding her fears one by one.
The back story in Bound By Time is told throughout the book beautifully and brings the plot together for the reader in a way that will have you twisting in agony with the characters.
The storyline in Bound By Time, for me, grew in intensity page by page until I found myself literally fidgeting or standing with my Kindle and walking while reading just because I felt the overpowering need to help the characters in any way I could. There was just no way I could sit still and read. I had this overwhelming need to kick some demon butt.
This is an extremely intense read. There is nothing fluffy about this book at all, and I can’t wait for the next one. If you’re looking for gritty, intense and downright thrilling reads, you would be remiss if you didn’t add Bound By Time by A.D. Trosper to your must-read list.
