Bonded Rosalie Tarr
Bonded, Rosalie Tarr
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
Vampires, romance – I’m in….:) This was a decent read, not earth shattering, nothing too deep but a good way to lose a couple of hours.
Alec was just how his friend Portia described him, kind of lost, didn’t really know what to do with himself, a bit sad in a way that he was trying to keep his sense of worth by tracking and killing murderous vampires. Portia’s a great friend, and so funny at times. She knew just what he needed, but what neither of them thought that would be was a male bond mate! It took straight guy Alec some time to get used to the idea, he thought he could just leave, ignore the call etc. but the pull of attraction was too great and he had to give in and accept it.
Of course there’s the problem of Aiden. He’s a) human b) straight and c) has a girlfriend. Alot for Alec to deal with before they can be bonded. Alec is trying to stay away, and yet keeps bumping into Aiden, Aiden feels the same pull though of course he’s no idea why, and finds himself talking to Alec, inviting him home and not wanting his girlfriend. Then to add to all that dilemma there’s the murderous vampire Lucius who Alec was tracing, who could prove dangerous to both Alec and Aiden.
Its a sweet read, funny in parts, and interesting in the whole straight men attracted to each other conundrum. We’re brought up to accept the norm and for most that’s typical m/f pairings, so diverging from that means getting to see the downsides, such as other peoples reactions and also changing our own mindset. It’s priced at £4.94 for 166 pages. As a one off read that’s quite expensive, but if you like light and easy to read paranormal maybe its one you’d re read that would make it better value.
Stars: three. Fun, easy read but a one off only.
