I love it when I have a complete genre switch from what I have read before, especially when it’s this much fun.
She’s a power-hungry battle angel
Coriel is determined to rid the world of demons and prove she has what it takes to be archangel. But when a fierce battle ends in tragedy on her orders, she is banished from the Heavens—and finds herself at the mercy of Hell’s sexiest and most powerful demon knight.
He’s the demon knight who wants her
Rather than take his rightful place on Hell’s throne, Zagan prefers to spend his days in the human realm corrupting souls—and he’ll end the life of any angel who tries to stop him. But rather than slay the beautiful battle angel when he has the chance, he binds her to him with his life-saving kiss, forcing her to obey his every command.
The line is drawn
Coriel has no choice but to submit to her captor, though the curse of his kiss is not what lures her to him. While Zagan takes great pleasure in exerting his dominance over the Heavens’ fiercest warrior, he soon wants her to do more than just his bidding. As the war between angels and demons rages, he wants her by his side … to rule Hell as his queen.
I really enjoy enemies to lovers books there is something about the tension that just makes the story so fun to read, this book is a little different in that there is a very clear divide between Coriel and Zagan, one is from Heaven and one is from Hell, but to be honest it just made the story all the more intriguing.
It has been a while since I read a supernatural book and I’m happy that I jumped back in with this one, it was so entertaining. I’ll be honest at the beginning of the book I wasn’t sure I was going to be all that keen on Coriel, thankfully she very quickly showed that there was a bit of conflict within her and I knew that I was going to enjoy the push and pull between her and Zagan even more for it.
The set up of the story is something that I really appreciated, it would be too easy to fall into the Heaven good, Hell bad situation, I liked that there was a grey area to each of them, and that characters from each side could be both good and bad. This grey area is what makes is so easy to really get behind Coriel and Zagan and really boosts their chemistry every time they interact.
What surprised me the most about this book was how much action there was, I suppose I thought it was mostly going to be about the fight against their feelings between Zagan and Coriel, but actually there was a lot more to it than that. Something exciting seemed to happen when I was least expecting it and very quickly I found myself glued to the pages waiting to find out how the characters would all fare at the end.
If you are looking for a book with a bit of adventure, a bit of sizzle between its main characters and a really intriguing supernatural element then I really would recommend Bound To You.
Thanks for wanting to learn more about me! I’m Aly, and I’ve been writing since middle school. I’ve always been a fan of paranormal, fantasy, and supernatural fiction. I’ve consumed it in many forms, including from books, movies, video games and anime. I would walk home from school hoping a black cat with a crescent moon on its forehead would come to me and tell me I was a reincarnated superhero, just like in the anime Sailor Moon. When that didn’t happen, I wrote my own Sailor Moon fanfiction, then original stories, all with strong heroines with magical powers. I realized my own magical power was my love for storytelling and world building.
I’m in love with my characters finding a love worth dying for. I love putting them in impossible situations and seeing how they figure things out and persevere. I really hope that you enjoy their journeys, too!
When I’m not writing about lusty demons, angels, and other paranormal beings, I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter, and maltipoo. I’m an avid video gamer, student of Japanese, tea aficionado, crafter, reader, and all-around nerd. I strongly believe in the healing powers of retail therapy.
