*Synopsis*Criminal profiler Sadie Bonds knows blood. Her affair with the gruesome, dark world of killers began long before she started applying her analytical skills to investigate gory crime scenes. She gets inside the killers’ heads, breaks them down, relates to them on an arcane level. She prefers it this way—because it’s safer to ally herself with the villain than the victim. At least, that’s how she’s coped ever since she was abducted and tortured as a teen.
She will never be a victim again.
Now, she’s honed her skills in order to bring justice to these ritualistic offenders. Working alongside her colleagues, armed with sharp wit and a SIG, Sadie always catches her sadist. Until one ruthless serial killer gets inside Sadie’s head, turning the tables. He knows her secrets. Her obsessions. The darkest, most deviant part of her soul.
When she meets Colton Reed, dangerous stakes are raised as he threatens to unravel her control and reveal her darkest fantasies. The sexy-as-sin bondage rigger at an exclusive BDSM club pushes her boundaries, forcing her to acknowledge that side of herself she fears. Plunged into a realm of torture and suffering, pain and pleasure, Sadie balances on the razor-sharp edge of two intersecting worlds threatening to swallow her.
Passion and lust ignite. Dark and light battle. This explosive first installment of the Broken Bonds series sets the exhilarating pace for a cat and mouse game where no one knows who’s really pulling the strings.
Sadie Bonds was brought into a world of pain and blood at the young age of sixteen. Bound and tortured for days she is left her with the ability to get inside the heads of monsters. It also left her with a need to be bound and freed from her mind. Feeling like she is broken for wanting something so dark she tries ignoring her needs. But when her newest case brings her to Colton Reed's doorstep and he offers to give her the release she craves, she can't deny herself any longer.
Sadie is on the hunt for a serial killer who tortures and kills young females. The crime scenes all bring her back to those days of being held captive and it drives her into Colton's arms - and ropes. The killer is playing a dangerous game with Sadie, and feels connected to her somehow. Sadie is chasing the killer. The killer is after Sadie. And only one of them will be caught.
This was such an intriguing story and I can't wait to get to the next book. I loved how Trisha Wolfe gave us not only Sadie and Colton's POV but also had little parts of the UNSUB's too. Sadie was really smart and I liked reading about her knowledge of history and serial killers. It was fun how Elizabeth Bathory, one of the most prolific female serial killers, was mentioned and was connected to the case. I wrote a paper on her in college so I just thought that was cool.
We didn't get too much of Colton in this first part of the story but I'm looking forward to finding out more about him. He has secrets of his own and I'm dying to find out what they are. He and Sadie together had a lot of chemistry and their scenes were Hot with a capital H.
On to the next one!
