5 Stars

This had me an emotional mess..I hit all the feels in this one and the biggest was anger. So much going on, and just when I thought I had something figured out nope this author gave me whiplash.

I’ve read the first series and moved into this one and so far I can almost say I love this one even more and that is saying a lot because The Prestian series was completely awesome and if you don’t read this from there you will be missing out on so so much!

I’m not going into any detail, I don’t want to ruin anything for other readers but take my advice and read these books. Via Mari has moved to my favorite authors list like a speeding bullet and all I can say is bring on the next book. I can not wait!

Loved It!!

Bound is the second book in the Torzial series by Via Mari. This series really captivated me, and I’ve loved every minute that I have spent between its pages. I really liked Ms. Mari’s Prestian series, so I knew I would like this series too, especially as it focuses on character/s that we met in the Prestian books- who now get their own books/series. But I can honestly say that this book (and the series as a whole) are now my favourite reads of Ms. Mari’s. They have eclipsed the Prestian series, in my eyes, and left me needing more of Ms. Mari’s work.
This book picks up right where book one left off, so I really recommend reading that book first before starting on this one, so you are up to date with all the important factors and exciting developments- and are able to follow all the interconnected threads of the storyline. You don’t need to have read the Prestian books to enjoy this series, but as it has some shared/ recurring characters, as well as some timeline/storyline elements- I would advise you to- as it will definitely enhance your reading pleasure.
As with the first book, this is a romantic suspense that’s full of action, danger, secrets, hidden agendas, humour, mystery, lots more sexual exploration & awakening, some light bondage, spanking, red hot sizzling scenes, mafia, and lots of intrigue. There is a lot happening in the story, but Ms. Mari choreographs the whole thing seemingly effortlessly, keeping me enthralled- and in anticipation. Ms. Mari really seems to have hit her stride with these books, and is totally comfortable and at ease with her craft- which really shows in this really well written and captivating book!
After the intense developments in the last book, we find things are only intensifying for Jenny and Brain. She has become the primary suspect in the murder of her ex, and as if that weren’t enough for anyone to have to contend with, the mafia has put a target on her back. Jenny is still trying to come to terms with her own horrific ordeal- and Brian has had a lot to do with her being able to piece herself back together again. Brian wants her to trust him to protect her and relinquish ‘control’ to him- as he’s determined to do whatever it takes to protect her. But as more and more ‘evidence’ begins to mount, will he start to lose faith in her? Will these doubts drive them apart? Could she ever really trust him with her heart?
I really love these two, they are such fantastic characters- superbly crafted, with fully developed and complex personalities. I was completely immersed in their story, emotionally invested in them and their ‘lives’- strung out on all the detail, reading anxiously to discover what happens to them.
This is primarily a suspense- with a great erotic romance woven through it. I love how Via Mari is able to build such intense tension, chemistry, and intrigue- but manages to balance it all with lots of emotion, and a little humour.
The story does continue into the next book, but as you may have guessed by now, I didn’t take a break between books, and read the entire series back to back!
I can’t wait to see what she does next!

Thank you, Via Mari!

Bound: The Torzial Affair Book 2 by: Via Mari- Review by Jessica Ranslow
Brian Carrington has made it his priority to keep Jenny Torzial safe. That proves to be a full time job with the mafia an ever present danger and the legal system determined to convict Jenny for the murder of her ex boyfriend. While Brian stays busy fighting the external forces that threaten her, Jenny continues to battle her internal demons. Allowing Brian to dominate Jenny in the bedroom is exactly what Jenny had always wanted, but she maintained a level of control over her life outside of the bedroom. Can Brian continue to keep Jenny safe without Jenny feeling like she’s lost control of every aspect of her life? Will Jenny ever get to live her life without looking over her shoulder and wondering what, or who, will come for her next?
Via Mari does not disappoint with book 2 in her series!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bound is the second book in the Torzial Affair series. You should read the previous book first to get the full picture. It ends in a cliffhanger.

Where the previous book focuses more on the budding relationship between Jenny and Brian, this book focuses on the danger elements surrounding Jenny. I found this story very…busy, I guess is the best way to describe it. There is a lot going on and at times it seems like a little too much. I kept up with the story line, but it seems like there was a bunch of action crammed into a small time frame.

I also found Brian to be a bit of a jerk in this story. He talks about trust, but the way he handles some of the stuff with Jenny, well, he’s expecting a lot at certain points in the story. But it is fiction so…

Bound has plenty of action and steamy scenes. A good few hours of entertainment.

BOUND The Torzial Affair Book 2 by VIA MARI

Four Stars

This is book two in the story of Jenny and Brian. You pick up where book one ended. Jenny’s life is spiraling out of control even more. I couldn’t stand the way that they lacked communication. People are so afraid that they won’t like what some one says so they never ask. So many misunderstandings cold have been avoided if they opened their mouths. Jenny jumped to conclusions too fast and never gave Brian a chance to explain. I don’t know if I would like someone being completely in control of me. It sounds nice reading about it but would I like it in my life. The author isn’t disappointing in this second book. I am enjoying this 2series better than the first.

Bound (The Torzial Affair Book 2) by Via Mari is amazing. This incredible series just gets better and better. Via has woven a superb web of betrayal and deceit that has more twists and turns than a road in the mountains. This complex and multifaceted and multidimensional story had me spellbound as I turned page after page not knowing where the story would take me. My heart was often in my throat as I followed along with these wonderful characters that have found their way into my heart and soul. It is one sexy, steamy and erotic read that will leave you in need of a cold shower.

Jenny is caught up in something she has no idea about but the repercussions are a matter of life and death, not only to herself but all those around her and the evidence just seems to pile up and up. There is only one person she can trust but it seems even that may be displaced.

Brian is trying to do everything he can to help the woman who has come to mean so much to him. It seems that for every step forward they end up taking several back. Who is behind this trouble and who can he trust? Will he walk away from the one who needs him the most when he is confronted evidence that implicate the worst?

Via is an author not to be missed. I am so excited to read the next book in this brilliant series.

Bound is the second book in The Torzial Affair by Via Mari. Jenny is such a strong independent woman will she be able to let Brian protect her by taking control of things outside of the bedroom? I didn’t think I could fall any more in love with Brian and Jenny. I love the way Jenny still knows how to push Brian buttons.

Via, another great book that kept me glued to my kindle with every page. Bound was just as steamy and non-stop twists just like Shattered. I can’t wait to see how this series is going to end.

Bound, the second book in the Torzial Affair series by Via Mari picks up right where Shattered left off. This installment ramped up the action to the point that my heart was racing from the first page to the very last page. Where I felt a little like I was missing part of the story with Shattered, Bound definitely made up for that as it was definitely easier to follow. Jenny’s past is still haunting her in this book and she can’t seem to escape, but where she only had to worry about one person’s deviousness, she now has a big target on her back from another, worse entity.
I definitely enjoyed this story over the first book, maybe due to the fact that it didn’t dwell on what had happened in the author’s previous series but centered around Jenny and Brian and what they were dealing with. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series now especially since this one just seemed to end at an integral part of the storyline.

Bound
The Torzial Affair
Book 2
By Via Mari
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
This book is in no way a standalone. This is a continuation to the Torzial Affair suspenseful romance. Mature readers only.

Jenny and Brian’s story continues. Jenny is such a strong woman. Even with all she must indore. Brian has a great stress reliever, in the bedroom. Thankfully she has not only Brian, but a whole team that protect her. As she continues to fight for her life, in and out of the court house.

Via Mari continues to impress me with her writing. Her characters are so likeable, and her story is a real page turner. I was drawn in on page one and yelled on the last page. Her story got so intense as well as Hot in the bedroom. Now I can’t wait for book 3! Well done Via Mari!!

5-stars

Bound by Via Mari is an incredibly entertaining read! It’s the second book in The Torzial Affair series, a series that should be read in order as this book follows where the first book left off. After reaching the end of Book 1 I couldn’t wait to dive into this book, and I was certainly not disappointed with how this story played out.

This storyline is intense, captivating, addicting, suspenseful, twisted and action-packed! I was hooked from the very first chapter and I ended up reading it in one sitting as I couldn’t bring myself to put it down. There were so many twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat and had my heart racing which kept me highly engaged the whole way through.

I can’t wait to dive into the third book to get answers to all my questions. I would absolutely recommend this book and series to others!
