Amy's 4 star ARC review of With Ties That Bind by Trisha Wolfe
This series is a spinoff of the Broken Bonds serial which must be read prior to beginning this first book. Contains spoilers to the Broken Bonds serial.
Detective Ethan Quinn has questions. The Arlington Slasher case is closed, the UNSUB no longer a threat—but Quinn can’t quiet the suspicion he harbors toward his partner and the young, attractive M.E. Not only does he loathe his uncertainty, he’s torn between doing his job and protecting his team.
But burying himself in cases no longer works. He’s restless. On edge. And tired of fighting his compulsions. Quinn has always viewed the law in black and white. Only now his world is swirling with a murky gray that threatens to devour him.
When lead medical examiner Avery Johnson careens toward a dangerous path, she pulls the unwitting detective into a dark web of deception and lust, triggered by a spree of recent killings.
Is this new player linked to the Bathory murders, or is it another copycat?
Time almost took Avery from him once before. As the clock ticks, Quinn will stop at nothing to protect her, refusing to let Avery become a victim again. Against his uncompromising logic, Quinn can’t deny his feelings. Avery forces him to acknowledge his darker desires, tempting his control—which weakens with every second he spends with the feisty M.E. as they hunt down the perpetrator threatening to tear them apart.
With Ties That Bind
** You need to read the Visions of Red Books prior to reading this book as there are spoilers to that series. **
Ethan Quinn, Sadie and Avery Johnson are back. Avery is still suffering from the torture she endured in the Visions series. Her nightmares plague her living a normal life. Quinn was there for her but after she was released from the hospital it's as if things changed. Quinn seems to be hiding his feelings and Avery is tired of everyone tip toeing around her. If she is going to get past the trauma in her life everyone needs to get a grip and quit treating her like she is going to break … although she feels like she is.
Just when Avery thinks she can start moving forward, even if its in the wrong way, her life is threatened once again. She thought the dark was gone but it's not. An additional character is brought to us in this one and you aren’t going to want to miss this character's thoughts --- holy wow.
Im not going to divulge anything else because it's too good to even give a hint towards. This is some evil twisted stuff though on these pages. Im smiling just writing what I know you are going to jump into. Click the previous series up first though and then dive in here. You won't be sorry!
Thank you for the ARC! Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets.
