Bonded

Posted by A Drop of Romeo at 1:03 AM
Reno, a Lycan Enforcer, is drawn to Brandi but duty rules his life. Brandi, a Disaster Control agent, falls for Reno at first sight, but are they really meant to be? Enforcers and DCs don't get along...unless fate forces them to.

Ciara Thinks: Wow. That is what I thought when reading this. The prose is excellent and the plot is well paced and full of unexpected twists that keep you reading on.

One of my favourite things about this story was the dark undertone, caused by an underground extremist group called the Purists who want to remove all traces humans from within Lycan bloodlines. Fighting the expansion of this group, and also keeping the existence of werewolves secret from humans is Lycan Link, where our two main characters work.

Brandi and Reno have such wonderful chemistry throughout, though it does turn to hate near the beginning as the two are perhaps the most stubborn leads, ever. Though both working to the same ultimate goal, they have such different opinions things that they can’t help but clash heads at every meeting. That aside, however, you can still feel the growing attachment between them as they work together in the fight against the Purists.

In Bonded, charliej has created a realistic, functioning society with its own problems, that are surprisingly relatable. In amongst the romance and threat, there’s also plenty of action, although it does get a little gruesome at times. It is heart-warming in some respects, and heartbreaking in others, to watch how the characters grow and change throughout this emotional rollercoaster of a story. The ending in particular is so beautiful yet bittersweet that I’d recommend several tissues
