Vampires and Witches and Myths, oh my!
Toni is a young doctor with a past she can't remember and a deadly reason for forgetting it.
Ben is a nurse who has his own tragic past and transfers hospitals after an act of heroism forces his secluded life public.
Ben can’t believe his eyes when he meets Toni, she has an uncanny resemblance to an old friend of his, and Toni can’t help but find Ben irresistible.
Enter Kevin, Toni’s sexy but arrogant Ex. Kevin’s jealousy of Ben blinds him from his main objective, Toni.
A dangerous secret is revealed and a magic spell seems to be a quick remedy, but the witch that helps has a little more than magic up her sleeve…
Around Halloween, I always like to delve into something paranormal. Lola James' Bound to Remember is a fun autumn read with vampires, witches, and just a bit of mytholgoy. It's a short read that I breezed through in one sitting, and one that I enjoyed for the most part.
Bound to Remember's main character, Toni Hollander, is an ER doctor who is given the task of introducing the new nurse, Benjamin Slaton, to the workings of their hospital. As they get to know one another, their attraction begins to turn into something more. Their relationship progresses quite a bit over the course of several days, but again, this is a very short book, and that sort of thing happens. It's not entirely unbelievable because they're two "young" people who are lonely and unable to socialize in the same manner as most other people. Though I would like to have seen more development, I still liked the book.
One thing that I did have a problem with in Bound to Remember is the editing. There were a LOT of errors that could have been caught by an editor or even Microsoft Office's spell check. I think some aspects of the story would be more enjoyable if they were tightened up, and again, that is something an editor could potentially help with.
Overall, I enjoyed the time I spent reading Bound to Remember, and I will probably make time to read Unbound in the future because it was a cute story. I would like to see where things go from the cliffhanger ending of Bound to Remember.
