Genre: Adult Erotic Mystery/Suspense
By all appearances, Shyla Ball has an enviable life: a loyal boyfriend, a great job, and family that loves her. She doesn't realize how deeply unsatisfied she is until she has an embarrassing encounter with a handsome stranger at a coffee shop. Taylor Holden, a successful businessman, takes a sudden special interest in her and offers her a job she cannot refuse. Soon after, she learns there is much more to this intensely private man than meets the eye. He is hiding many painful secrets, including why it is that he has seemingly plucked her out of obscurity for such a lucrative position. Her "perfect" world is turned upside down by her infatuation towards Taylor and in just a couple of months, her life looks nothing like it did before. While she is frightened by the changes she sees in herself, she cannot resist the lure of Taylor Holden. As Shyla slowly gains Taylor's trust, she learns of his complex history and how it has molded him into the person he has become. When elements of Taylor's secret past resurface and threaten to destroy them, Shyla finds out there may be more to Taylor's story than even he is aware of. Strapped is a story of passion, manipulation, obsession, and family secrets.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided in exchange for a fair and honest review. Spoiler-free. Cliffhanger. 4 stars.

I am going to top line my review so I can remain spoiler free. Strapped was a fast read that was reminiscent of 50 Shades. Shyla Ball lands a dream job after spilling a hot cup of coffee on hot billionaire/ CEO Taylor Holden. She is instantly smitten with Taylor even though he seems to be harboring some dark secrets.  Shyla breaks up with her live in boyfriend after she cheats on him with Taylor.  She finds herself  falling hard and fast for a man that she is trying understand. Taylor is a complex man full of phobias, commitment issues and a personality disorder (or he’s just a moody freak). They embark on a dysfunctional relationship of sorts. As he starts to trust Shyla he slowly lets her in on his disturbing past. She also learns that he is into BDSM and decides to explore this side of him. Taylor finally lets her into his heart and his grey room of pain...but she might not make it out alive.

Strapped had a good amount of angst and some steam.  The character/background/plot development was amazing. Strapped ends in a cliffEFFINGhanger and I hope we don’t have to wait too long to read book two.

  1. Looks good but I'm not a fan of cliffhangers unless the author writes really fast ;)

  2. Thanks for hosting and the review. I am aiming for the sequel TBR by February AND Strapped Down will not have a cliffhanger :).

    1. I cant wait for February! I cant wait to read the next book!

  3. Thanks for featuring Nina today and helping spread the word on her work. Here's hoping February comes fast. :)
