Giveaway & Review: Bound by Passion by Josee Renard

Title - Bound By Passion
Author - Josee Renard
Genre - Contemporary Erotica -
Publisher - Cobblestone Press
Publication Date (month and year) - June 2012

Summary:  It’s been almost two years for Thea, two long and painfully empty years since she met Gabriel and the month they spent together the erotic and emotional highlight of her life.

    And then he disappeared.

    She’s sick and tired of dreaming about him, of wasting her nights replaying the time they’d spent together. It’s time to find him, to figure out why he left her hanging, so she can get on with her life. She’d long since done the obvious—checking the wedding announcements, the obituaries—but she hadn’t ever known very much about him, except that he was the sexiest, sweetest, most amazing man she’d ever met.

    Gabriel’s been thinking about Thea the whole time he’s been undercover. Despite the danger, he’s continued to watch over her, to make certain she’s okay and, yes, to console himself that she’s still single. It’s not going to be easy, but now his assignment’s over, he’s going to find his lover and make her his wife.
I obtained the above information from Ms. Josee's website!

I was given this book for my honest thoughts and words....

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review..

Okay.. First let me say that there was not a whole lot of back and forth as far as the timeline is concerned... But I am reader that has a difficult time going back and forth and back and forth. I have to normally read these kind of books in order (reading one "past" then going to the "present") only because that is my issue...

But saying this...... This book is a great read! Oh gosh... in such a short story, Josee gave me what was needed to make this story work! It is kinda heart-wrenching... I mean, you are sorta left feeling sorry for Thea because she spends the best month of her life with the man of her dreams... and then he is gone from her life and she has no idea where or what happened to him...

Then you find out what happened to Garbiel and again your heart goes out to him because you know if he could, he would let Thea know what is going on... But it is a matter of life or death... Seriously...

But the reunion will make you giggle and then sigh... then go aweeeee.... I hope you enjoy the story as much as I did!
