Revenge Bound Book Tour: Review + Giveaway!

Welcome to my post for the Revenge Bound book tour! I have a review coming up, as well as a giveaway for a Kindle Fire and a couple of other prizes. But, first, allow me to introduce the book:

Revenge Bound (Tattoo Thief, #3)
Release date: July 31, 2014
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Series: Tattoo Thief #3

On the Internet, secrets never die…

Violet can’t imagine anything worse than having her very private, very naked photos strewn across the Internet.

Until they multiply like a virus.

With her name, address, and phone number attached.

And her boss finds out. And a stalker finds her.

Violet’s refuge is a rock star known for going through groupies faster than guitar picks. Letting Jayce get close enough to protect her exposes her secrets—and her heart—to a man whose celebrity could ruin her.

That’s because being a nobody is the one thing that keeps Violet’s photos from making headlines. And it’s the reason she can never fall for a rock star.

Secrets spread like wildfire when a celebrity fans the flames.

REVENGE BOUND is a full-length, standalone novel, and a companion to the Tattoo Thief books. It contains steamy scenes and strong language intended for mature readers.

My Rating: 3 Roses

An emotional, intense New Adult read, Revenge Bound was a wonderful romance. It was an enjoyable book that I quite liked.

Violet and Jayce were both great characters. Violet was strong enough to deal with her life falling apart and was determined to pick herself up and move on. My only issue with her was that I didn't understand why it was so difficult for her to accept Jayce's help to deal with the stalker. Otherwise, I liked her.

Jayce was sweet and determined to help Violet. He might have had a playboy image, but he was very loyal to his loved ones and that carried over to when he fell in love. I thought he was wonderful.

The romance was good, both sweet and steamy. Violet and Jayce were a lovely couple that had a lot of trust in each other. And, the chemistry between them was definitely hot.

The pace was a weak point, for me. For about the first half, I was only vaguely interested. I just couldn't get totally into the story. But, during the later half, things picked up for me and I became fully engaged. Overall, I enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was great.

Revenge Bound was a wonderful New Adult romance. With the deep emotions and constant threat of danger from the stalker, it was an enjoyable read. Though it wasn't perfect, I did quite like it. Romance lovers, this is a book you might want to check out.
