These characters and their relationships with one another, the way they were so much better together than any one individual was apart, were everything. I fell in love with the people, their story, their lifestyle, and the family that they built despite the odds. ~ Leigh – Simply Love Book Reviews

 

 

These two books do not stand alone, but truly need to be read as one complete story, and it’s well worth the investment. These characters and their relationships with one another, the way they were so much better together than any one individual was apart, were everything. I fell in love with the people, their story, their lifestyle, and the family that they built despite the odds.

Ashton is the gay troublemaker. In his eyes, he’s a disappointment to his father, a manipulator who attempts to drag everyone else down with him. In actuality, he’s brilliant, caring, but afraid of letting any weakness show, so he covers it up with sarcasm and snark. The only person that gets to see the true beauty inside is his best friend Mia.

Mia is the daughter of Hollywood royalty, having grown up in a family devoid of love, but high on unreasonable expectation. She is sweet, kind, and in love with her gay best friend who can never reciprocate her feelings. She desperately wants to belong to someone who will put her first and love her for who she is, and feel that she is enough.

“Dude Bro” Brayden is the school hockey star. Driven and focused on his sport, he harbors childhood demons behind a cocky exterior. He doesn’t get close to people easily, but when he does, he loves them with his whole heart. He is prepared to give his to Mia, but feelings for another threaten to get in the way.

As the college hockey coach needing a temporary place to live, Drew he moves in with Ashton, the dean’s son. Through close proximity he develops a friendship with both Ashton and Mia, but despite feelings that start to grow, his heart beats for someone else.

Each one of these characters is beautiful on their own, but the way their stories intertwine and the sacrifices they are willing to make for one each other make for a book that can’t be put down. These books truly had it all and made me run the gamut of emotions for each of these people that I grew to love. These people worked so hard to make their relationships work, took so much time to get to know each other so that their love and affection was based on deep emotion, and took nothing for granted. The trust and communication they placed in each other showed, and the author created characters that were so complex and deep that I am constantly reminded of why I one-click everything she writes.

The Torn Apart/Bound Together duet should not be missed. It was an emotional ride with a true HEA that satisfied me completely.
