Bound by Via Mari was a great continuation of Shattered. I would give this book a five out of five stars. I enjoy seeing Jenny’s personality come back and grow throughout this book. Her trust goes through the ringer but it was so well written you could see the development. I love Brian’s strength and control. You can see he has the best intentions and has a stepped approach for everything.
Via Mari has outdone herself with this one! She has created a story that makes your heart race in more ways than one! Bound is action packed, suspenseful, intense, romantic, and sexy! Once you start reading, you will not be able to put it down.
Jenny and Brian face even more troubles that are bound to tear them apart. It’s impossible to know who they can trust and who they can’t, including having doubts about one another. It seems everyone is out to get Jenny, the police and court system trying to prove she murdered her ex, the mafia, and possibly even those closest to her. Even with his doubts and trust issues, Brian is trying with everything that he has to keep Jenny safe, both from outside sources and from herself. He uses his dominance over Jenny to create a safe space for her and to help her forget about everything that’s going on, which amounts to lots of super steamy encounters that will have you feeling a bit hot yourself! Will they be able to beat the odds and be together, or will they end up losing each other forever?
We are left with quite the shocking cliffhanger at the end and I can’t wait to jump into Book 3 so I can finally close my jaw that’s been left hanging since I finished Bound!

Bound is the 2nd book in The Torzial Affair series by Via Mari. The Torzial Affair series is a spin off from The Prestian Series by Via Mari. I would definitely recommend that you read book 1, Shattered, before reading Bound as the story continues straight on from where we are left hanging at the end of book 1.
This book will take you on even more of a roller coaster journey than Shattered. You will laugh and cry and feel every emotion possible when reading this. There are some particularly harrowing scenes which could be a possible trigger for some readers.
The threat on Jenny intensifies and to make matters worse, her rapist ex is murdered and she is the police’s number 1 suspect. Although she is innocent, the evidence that the police has makes her look guilty. Brian and his team are doing everything possible to keep her safe from the mafia and at the same time, prove her innocence.
This book is hotter than the first as Brian and Jenny’s relationship progresses and he adds a bit more BDSM to the bedroom.
Yet again Via Mari leaves you with a cliffhanger. It was one of those WTF! Moments. Thankfully I have book 3 already on my kindle. I’d have hated to have waited for the book to come out to see how the rest of this story unfolds.
This is book 2 in The Torzial Affair series.
It continues the story of Jenny and Brian. As there relationship deepens their love for each other become more as well. Brian starts to experiment with her testing her limits for being dominated and tied up.
As well as their relationship things take a shocking turn for the worse when Jenny’s ex Ty is found murdered and all evidence points to Jenny being the killer.
With so many lies and fabricated evidence no one knows who to trust.
This is a great follow up book the ending has me wanting to read the next book to find out what happens.
Via Mari has done it again with Bound, the second book, in the Torzial Affair series! This book picked right on up with where the first one left off, so I would highly recommend reading the first book, Shattered, before starting this one. We meet Jenny and Brian in the first book and learn their passion for each other as the story builds. Jenny has been hurt pretty badly in the past and Brian has not partaken in a committed relationship, until he met Jenny and still struggles to do so. Jenny is everything… brilliant, beautiful and feisty. She keeps her outward appearance calm, cool, and collected meanwhile on the inside, her life is being flipped upside down. She is fighting so many forces such as the mafia and the court system trying to convict her with the ruthless murder of her ex.
Brian is used to being in control of all things around him. He is struggling with his newfound want to commit to Jenny while all of this chaotic mess is being thrown her way. He wants nothing more than to protect her even as he fears he may lose her. While Jenny is dealing with all things bad, Brian also has a few shocking things that come to light in his life. Situations arise where the trust between the two is questioned as they fight against each other and with each other for the outcome that they both want and desire.
This book had so many scenes of action, passion, steam, and desire! There were so many times I felt as if I couldn’t read fast enough, just wanting to know what was going to happen. I felt all of the emotions of each character from love, lust, betrayal, fear, and panic. This is a must read book (after finishing book 1, of course) that will keep you on the very edge of your seat, trying to play detective and get to the bottom of things before the author reveals things herself.
Bound (The Torzial Affair)
This is the second series I’ve read by Via Mari and she’s really outdone herself with this one! Bound had me drawn in from beginning to end with a great storyline and likeable, enjoyable characters. The twists, turns and intrigue this book had to offer kept the pages turning. I am really looking forward to seeing what more Via Mari has to offer!
Bound was a great 5 star read and book 2 in The Torzial Affair series.
I was excited to get my hands on this book, I couldn’t wait to see where things would go from here.We pick up where book one left off.
Jenny is being considered a suspect in her exe’s death. She has also been targeted by the mafia. She is still a little on edge with Brian but he has been great, supporting Jenny and being there for her. There is so much more but I don’t want to give anything away.
We get action, suspense, mystery, romance and so much more. All of the secondary characters were great. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was coming next. Via Mari does a great job with her writing, she pulls you right in. There are many unexpected twists and turns. If you’re looking for a gripping romantic suspense that you can’t put down than 1-click and get started today on this great series.
Bound is the fabulous second installment in the Torzial Affair novels from the ever-talented Via Mari. I would recommend HIGHLY that you read book one, Shattered, before you dive into this one. There is some major groundwork laid out in that one that makes this book possible. I will be doing my best to not divulge any spoilers but I can say that this is the continuation of Jenny and Brian’s story. They have a whole set of obstacles to overcome, will they be able to do it together and without compromising their love for one another in the process? It was one heck of a ride with plenty of twists and turns to keep you on your toes and enthralled as you read. I love the way that Via Mari can spin a tale with an originality. Even if it is an old trick so to speak as far as story lines go she manages to sweep you away in a flurry you wouldn’t expect. I can’t wait to see what will come in the series next. I am sure it will be enthralling and wonderful.
Bound is the second book in Via Mari’s Torzial Affair series (that is a spin-off of her Prestian Series). You cannot read it as a standalone and I recommend you read the Prestian Series as well as it provides you with many of details that make you to enjoy it so much more.
Jenny is in a pickle and it is an understatement of the century – she is accused of murdering her ex and as a result she is thrown into the dispute between mafia groups. We learn so much more about her and her time with her ex and it explain so much … It is also great to see how Brian is growing from one book to another and how it helps him to take the true control of the situation AND of Jenny. I love how much more detail there is to Jenny and Brian in this second book and let’s not forget about how much more we learn about Matt the original protector …
The writer leaves us craving for the next book where we hopefully find out whether it will work between Jenny and Brian and whether Brian will be able to completely commit to Jenny and Jenny to completely to submit to him …
Via Mari again created another amazing book with Bound, the second book in the Torzial Affair series. This follows Jenny and Brian as they start a life together. The pain the Jenny feels from her rape, jumps off the pages and right into your heart. You can feel her pain and her struggle so clearly. The story of Jenny and Brian is intense, and I could not put it down. These two have such chemistry yet there is so much distrust and doubt.
Via Mari has a way to write books so strong and pull you in right away and this book is just another example. I love how she is making this relationship with Jenny and Brian grow at the right pace after what she has gone through. I truly cannot wait to read more in this series and more of her journey to healing. I give this book five stars and highly recommend.
