Layla Jennings is a fiery, independent and level headed nineteen year old. Always playing by the rules and doing what’s right, she has been the apple of her father’s eye and her mother’s treasure. But moving to college in Long Beach is about to turn Layla’s world upside down. With the gorgeous, pierced, guitar playing, wannabe rock star Oliver living across the hall, Layla finds herself thrown into a world of music, money, torn friendships and blood simmering sexual tension.
But on taking a job in a local coffee shop she meets the deliciously handsome Jared Garrett. Convincing herself that he is a waste of oxygen she tries to put the young successful business man out of her mind. But when he continues to show up she finds herself constantly thinking of him. Dazzled by his boyish good looks and discovering a whole new world of carnal and erotic pleasures, Layla finds herself falling head over heels in love but with Jared hiding a vital secret can she ever truly trust him?
Let me start of by saying I love a good love triangle.....it's my favorite kind of book! That being said, I have never been so torn between two male characters in my life! Team Jared or Team Ollie.....ughhh I'm still undecided though I'm leaning toward Jared! I give this one 4 stars.
Bound Together is the story of Layla Jennings, when moving to college in Long Beach, Layla's world get's rocked when she meets the gorgeous, pierced, guitar playing, wannabe rock star Oliver and then the handsome, rich, controlling, oh-so-yummy Jared. Throughout the story Layla falls in love with both guys and is forced to make a choice. I experienced so much frustration with Layla. I don't want to give away any of the story but know that my emotions were thrown all over the place and I could not put this book down so be prepared for the ride!
I think that Bound Together is a great debut novel, there is a very promising story line here. Of course there were little things that irritated me like Layla's repetitive running all the time, and the length of the book, but I don't feel like the issues were big enough to take away from the story. I've seen mixed reviews on this book and everyone is entitled to their own opinion....I read for fun and to entertain myself, and Bound Together def entertained me! If your looking for a sexy love triangle with lot's of angst Bound Together is for you!
