REVIEW: Bound to Darkness by Lara Adrian

Title: Bound to Darkness
Author: Lara Adrian
Series: Midnight Breed, #13
Release Date: July 30, 2015

Carys Chase is accustomed to making her own rules and letting her heart lead the way—no matter what anyone else has to say about it. A rare Breed female and a daywalker as well, headstrong, beautiful Carys is one of the most powerful of her kind. She lives passionately and loves without limits, especially when it comes to the lethal cage-fighting Breed warrior called Rune.

Unbeatable in the ring, Rune exists in a brutal world of blood and bone and death. He’s made his share of enemies both in and out of the arena, and his secrets run as deep and turbulent as his past. A dangerous loner who has survived by his fists and fangs, Rune has never allowed anyone to get too close to him…until Carys. But when the bodies buried in his past rise up to threaten his present, Rune must choose between betraying Carys’s trust or putting her in the crosshairs of a battle neither of them can hope to win on their own.

"You keep f*cking me like this, and I won't be able to deny you anything, female."

"You mean that?" Carys's bright amber eyes were fixed on his throat. She licked her lips, then glanced up at him, unapologetically Breed.

Even though Rune could tell she was playing with him, he sobered instantly. He stroked the side of her beautiful face. "You know our rule, love."

She groaned, arching a slender brow. "If I followed everyone's rules, we would never have gotten together in the first place, would we?"

Before he knew what she was doing, she dipped her head and ran her tongue across his carotid. No fangs, only softness--a swift, wet caress that arrowed through him even more potently than any jolt of electricity he'd ever taken in the cage.

Holy. Hell.

Lydia's Review

Bound to Darkness is about Carys and Rune... Carys is the daughter of one of the original midnight Breed couples. These books are continuations of the Midnight series but they are all about the kids from our favorite originals... so in a way, it is kind of like a spin-off series.

Carys was so loving and caring and soft, yet tough as h*ll when it called for it. She led with her heart and her heart always led her back to her mate Rune. 

Rune was this big, tough, and sexy fighter. Rough around the edges and doesn't think he is good enough for Carys, so he won't complete their mate bond. Don't worry though, Carys wears him down.

This book was action packed with a plot that keeps you guessing and some revelations that I never saw coming! I am a huge fan of this series and am excited to get my hands on the rest of the books! 

There's no cliffhanger and we do get our HEA.
