    One of my top reads of 2016!  Do you know what I love? No? I’ll tell you. I love when a character grows from one book to the next. I love when that character sees things with new eyes and a fresh perspective. I love the thought patterns, the realizations, the transformations, and the discovery of self. That kind of emotional journey is thrilling to read. It moves me, challenges me, and pulls me so deeply into a book that those pages become real and addictive.

I love when that character sees things with new eyes and a fresh perspective. I love the thought patterns, the realizations, the transformations, and the discovery of self. That kind of emotional journey is thrilling to read. It moves me, challenges me, and pulls me so deeply into a book that those pages become real and addictive. This Broken Bonds Book Two has done all of that to me.   The relationship between Quinn and Avery is a heart wrenching and fragile thing. “You said even my scars were beautiful. But my scars aren’t just skin-deep, Quinn” It’s hard for anyone who has such a strong moral compass to see shades of grey, and for Quinn, his drive for absolute honesty and righteousness is costing him. His standards are at times impossibly high for those closest to him. All of whom are damaged in many ways, but still striving for better. He works in a land of psychopaths and the roads are curved, but his self-evaluations are becoming more frequent. “When I look back over my life, after I’ve become an old retired, washed-out detective with a back brace and arthritic joints, I wonder if this moment—this pivotal moment—will be my ultimate failure or biggest triumph.” Told in multiple POVs, we get a good look into all of the players and their inner workings. Though this book is not solely about Quinn, he is the center of this revolving circle of chaos. In all honesty, I extremely disliked him at times; though I hazard to guess not as much as he hated himself.  Existential and empirical are the best ways to describe it all. Ultimately it’s a thrill read hunting a serial psychopath, but it’s also a series that is producing a litany of secondary characters that I am absolutely salivating over. The amount of spin-off series/books that can come from this seems never ending; and if they all pack this kind of deadly punch we are in for one hell of a ride! A thriller with an exhilarating undertone of sex, lies, and fraying moral fiber. *ARC Read Follow us on   KT Book Reviews Twitter Facebook Pinterest tumblr YouTube Book Babblers

She has sucked me into her twisted and slightly dark world, to try and unravel the mystery of who the Alpha is! Quinn and Avery face some tough times in this one, and I was hooked to the gripping plot and to the growing sexual tension between them. Quinn was such a great guy! I love how devoted he was to his work and the pride that he takes from doing it right. But right off the bat he was thrown a curve-ball that had him out the door for a while. He would stop at nothing to protect Avery and continued to do what he could to make sure she was safe. Avery had to face her demons once again, and her workplace was not the safe sanctuary that she was used to. It was invaded by people that are helping with the case, and she found it hard to work alongside them. Quinn hovered around her, and she enjoyed having him close, but she was just as independent as ever. When faced with a difficult plan to try and out the Alpha, she was positive that she would jump in to help. Quinn and Avery are a great team together, but it was sad to see that the truth kept them apart at times... They had to work through a lot of issues, but I could see that their love for one another was only getting stronger. I enjoyed the way the story unfolded, and how the little plans and twists kept throwing everyone. And you know how I am about previous characters making appearances, and seeing them all work together was fantastic! Like every book that I have read in this world, Trisha Wolfe has a way to keep you guessing! She threw in a few twists that keep you on your toes and to make you think. I enjoyed how the storyline built up and found myself reading so fast, just to see what was coming! It was a thrilling ride and I need more NOW!

There were revelations and "oh sh!t" moments. It had a slightly different feel because of events concerning Quinn - the action was there but there was less police procedural in this installment. However, it was everything I've come to expect from Wolfe with her dark thrillers. I have to admit to getting a wee bit grumpy with Quinn. I *know* he lives by a code - he prides himself on it. But there are times when rules are meant to be bent, if not broken. He had to suck it up and figure out exactly how much Avery is worth to him. Avery, for her part, showed her incredible strength and resilience. She is someone to admire even if she'd disagree. Both Quinn and Avery did some growing in this installment, realizing the limits and boundaries they both had were maybe closer to guidelines when push comes to shove. Love has that sort of revelatory power. I adored getting to spend more time with Sadie and Colton, Chase and Alexis, and even Carson. Honestly, I'm nervous with how things were left. I had no idea where this was going and I'd never have guessed it'd end up going where it did. Seriously, didn't see that coming! I'm even considering a re-read so I can take notes and create theories - you know, like a detective. *wink* I believe there's only one book left and I want to see if I can puzzle it out. I doubt it though. If Quinn and Sadie haven't figured it all out, I'm not sure I can. *haha* But please, Trisha, please don't hurt anyone...too much. I've come to care about them all and I don't know if I could bear it.

    The ride is not over! But in this I feel like I'm on those rides you go on and you're completely in the dark...never knowing what is coming at you or what is in store for you until it's too late. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. I felt that every time I tried to figure it out, it was like a bug caught in a spider's web. Every time you struggle you get further ensnared in the web.

But in this I feel like I'm on those rides you go on and you're completely in the dark...never knowing what is coming at you or what is in store for you until it's too late. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. I felt that every time I tried to figure it out, it was like a bug caught in a spider's web. Every time you struggle you get further ensnared in the web. By the end of the book I was so friggen tangled up in my own assumptions, that I fear I'll never figure this out. So thank god I have Trisha to guide me through this. Right now the puzzle pieces are slowly, piece by piece being laid before me, I know she will eventually give me all the pieces and I'll wonder why in the hell I didn't see it before that point. But isn't that what makes a great read?! I love that Trisha makes me think about what I'm reading, right or wrong (mainly wrong! Lol) in my assumptions, I love that I have been kept on my toes and on the edge of my seat. There are so many layers to these characters. Avery and Quinn have yet to fully hit their stride in their relationship and I'm loving the build up to this relationship. I feel bad for Quinn, in the fact that, at one point he really has no idea who to trust any more. The people he's surrounded by are not all they appear to be and for this very black and white guy, it is a struggle for him. Things are either right or wrong... there is no in between for him. Sadie, Avery and even Carson test his morality, stretching his boundaries way beyond his comfort level. I can't wait for book 3, this Alpha character is kicking my inquisitive ass! I can't get a read on him. I am very intrigued by this character and my dark side needs answers! I can only imagine the intensity between Quinn and Avery will be cranked right up and I can't wait to be seared by that intensity! I would highly recommend this entire series!!

The unfortunate part is all of his players are the characters we've come to love with his goal being to get the Queen - Avery Johnson. Avery is still dealing with scars both outside and inside from her kidnapping by the Alpha Killer. She is also dealing with guilt over the secret she and Sadie share. One she knows is going to do irreparable damage to her new relationship with Quinn. When this journey started in the With Visions of Red series – Avery and Quinn walked on the right side of the line unlike Sadie and Colton whose souls had been tainted with the evil that had touched their lives. Now that evil has touched Avery's life and that just leaves Quinn still trying to honor the pledge he made when he became an officer of the law. Poor Quinn – he even knows he's in over his head - "I'm like the giant, goofy kid stumbling around in the sandbox with the rest of the cool kids" Sadie, Quinn, Avery and the police department along with the FBI are trying to find the Alpha killer. Let me tell you this Alpha dude is twisted. Not only is he twisted but he is extremely intelligent and has masted the game of toying with those he perceives as threats to him and he also will do anything to get what he wants and his end goal is to get Avery back. This is not a stand alone book – nor a stand alone series. Books 1-3 in the With Visions of Red: Broken Bonds and With Ties That Bind: Broken Bonds book 1) should be read before reading this one.

    With Ties that Bind 2 was amazing.. it had everything. Super sexy, dark and suspenseful. Loved having the other characters; Sadie, Colton, Larkin and Alexis . It was like reuniting with old friends. The relationship between Avery and Quinn is beautiful and complicated. I love the strength that Avery holds, she has been through hell and back and continues to be a hero to the victims out there. Love this game of cat and mouse with the Alpha.

    Wow, this one was brutal. It was suspenseful through and through and had me on the edge of my seat until the last page. There was also so much cruelty and violence that made me shiver. I loved it! This was absolutely my kind of read! Not everything was as black and white as Quinn wanted it to be. He was tested thoroughly because he lost more than he could have imagined in his orderly life and Avery was drifting farther into dangerous territory. Quinn wanted to protect her but his hands were tied Wow, this one was brutal. It was suspenseful through and through and had me on the edge of my seat until the last page. There was also so much cruelty and violence that made me shiver. I loved it! This was absolutely my kind of read! Not everything was as black and white as Quinn wanted it to be. He was tested thoroughly because he lost more than he could have imagined in his orderly life and Avery was drifting farther into dangerous territory. Quinn wanted to protect her but his hands were tied with so much being stripped from him. He lost control in more than just one sense of the word and Avery was slipping through his fingers. This would have the strongest and toughest put through the wringer. Now you can imagine how Quinn struggled between accepting the grey parts in life and turning against the people he cared about. ‘It’s the most intoxicating feeling, witnessing Quinn - who’s always in control – lose every bit of his.’ This one was my favorite so far. Edge gripping tension, unpredictable villains, unforeseeable actions, secrets, guilty consciences, lies, betrayals. The worst of the worst, a monster so evil and deceitful, someone who had everyone play his game unknowingly. Manipulation, violence, cleverness, furtiveness. He strategically placed his marionettes to his wishes and got rid of every obstacle in his way. It was a delight to get glimpses inside the villain’s brain with his POVs. I liked those a lot more than in Sadie’s story. I just wasn’t a fan of the suddenly deep feelings being confessed, which came out of nowhere for me since I was still at the forbidden/desire stage. There also wasn’t much between H and h yet to manifest something so deep but well, the main thing was the crime and suspense and everything else was just a bonus. As always, it’s a pity that the books are so short. I just wish they were made into one book instead of split into three but luckily the next one already awaits me on my kindle.

These books are my absolute favorite in the thriller/suspense genre. The puzzles that Ms. Wolfe weaves are nothing short of genius. She knows how to hook her readers and get them invested in the plot. I have loved reading every characters viewpoint, from the lead detective, to the forensics specialist, to the profiler, and most of all the killer's. CSI and Law and Order SVU are two of my favorite television programs, and when I am reading one of Ms. Wolfe's books, I feel like I too am in the middle of an intense, investigation! As I began, With Ties that Bind, Book 2, I found the beginning of the story to be a lot slower paced than previous books. However, I knew Ms. Wolfe would not let me down. She never does! At the fifty percent mark, the story took completely off, and I was riveted. Holding my breath, biting my nails, and talking to my kindle; I was beyond hooked! Book Two picks up right where the last book ended. These books need to be read in sequential order, or you will be completely lost. Detective Ethan "Quinn" and his team continue to hunt for the sadistic serial killer known as "The Alpha." Quinn is in love with Lead Medical Examiner, Avery Johnson, and is determined to keep her safe. She is a prime target for The Alpha, and has already been captured, victimized, and rescued twice. Unfortunately, The Alpha is an extremely intelligent sociopath, who always seems to be many steps ahead of Detective Quinn and his team. We also get Detective Quinn's partner, Agent and Criminal Profiler, Sadie Bonds, and her love interest Colton Reed, who were in the With Visions of Red Series. This gives the reader a cast of interesting, well-fleshed out characters, that add to the allure and depth to the story. They were the main characters in the previous series, and it is always like being reunited with good friends, when I get to read about them. Questions of morality and ethics, add to the appeal of the plot. Detective Quinn has always lead his life and career by a strict moral code. He believes in the process of the justice system. However, with his deep love for Avery, and need to keep her safe and protected; he finds himself questioning his moral code. He struggles deeply when he learns certain information about his team, and this changes the way he looks at a couple of them. Plus, he begins to question himself, which causes a great amount of distress and self-loathing. I felt badly for Detective Quinn, and even began questioning what I would do in his situation. Lead Medical Examiner Avery Johnson has done some things that she is not proud of. She suffers from feelings of guilt and shame. Avery is determined to capture "The Alpha," and rescue the girls he is abducting, torturing, and trafficking, before they end up being added to his list of gruesome murder victims. Along the way, she finds herself falling more and more in love with Quinn, but doesn't feel worthy of him. She struggles with coming clean to him about her secrets. The With Visions of Red and Broken Bonds spin-off books are must reads! They are phenomenal! I always recommend them to book lovers that have a passion for suspenseful thrillers, forensics, and criminology! I can't believe there is only one book left in this series. I have to see how it all comes to an end. I'm dying to know who "The Alpha" is, and just know it's going to be a familiar character that I don't suspect! My Rating: I give, With Ties that Bind: A Broken Bonds Novel, Book 2, By Trisha Wolfe, 4.5 Masterful, Complex Puzzle, Questioning, On the Edge of Your Seat Filled Stars! Trust me, you need to read these books!!! *To Read More Book Reviews, Visit http://www.abookishescape.com

    I took my time with this book. I had to savor it. I love how as soon as I started reading it I remembered what happened in the first book. This time around I haven't even bothered to come up with a list of who the Alpha can be because I know Ms. Wolfe will just completely surprise me. I love that Quinn will do anything to protect Avery. I love how he still wants to do the right thing and is so different from Sadie. I know what Sadie has been through and what made her the way she is. I know Quinn I took my time with this book.

I know Quinn knows what Sadie has been through but he won't let her forget what he knows she's done. Avery is still loyal and wants to take the blame for what was done to Wells. She wants to protect someone who only got rid of a monster. But she also feels for Quinn and wants to be honest with him. Quinn is the only one that makes Avery feel something. He's the only one she doesn't need an aphrodisiac with. I really did want Quinn to rip Carson a new one and to punch him in the jewels. I like how strong Avery is even when she thinks she isn't. And I love that Quinn knows that and he treats her that way. I love how Quinn and Avery come together. It's so hot, sexy and you know what they are feeling. Quinn is the only one that makes Avery feel safe. And he accepts her the way she is. We get to see the Alpha in this book also and be in his way. He's always a few steps ahead of everyone. When they think they have him, has out smarted them again. Avery feels guilty for the drug she has put in his hands and wants to bring him down. I loved this book. I highly recommend this series. Every book is better than the other.

    I almost just made this entire review "There are no words. Just read it." Because once again, the exquisite Miss Trisha Wolfe has left me at a loss for words once I've closed one of her books. The second that I finished this book I wanted to be back in that world with the characters. I didn't want to leave them. In all honesty, it took me much longer than I would have liked to finish this book. Not because I wasn't enjoying, just because of some personal things. I read the last 40% or so of it in I almost just made this entire review "There are no words. Just read it."

The second that I finished this book I wanted to be back in that world with the characters. I didn't want to leave them. In all honesty, it took me much longer than I would have liked to finish this book. Not because I wasn't enjoying, just because of some personal things. I read the last 40% or so of it in one day. I needed to know what happened. I loved seeing characters from other books pop up in this one. Especially Sadie who will always be a favorite of mine. Seeing characters from Derision was super exciting!! Avery and Quinn grew on me even more as I read and I was routing for them to be together. I liked Avery in With Visions of Red but never considered her that much. Quinn was a character that I always wanted to see more of, though, so I'm glad that we have. The Alpha is so mysterious and deadly. Yet somehow also refined. And, as usual, Trisha brings a beauty and elegance to the darkness. I still have no clue who the Alpha is although I've formulated some theories along the way. None of which I think are right. I adored this book. I adore these characters. I can't wait for book three. Tension, passion, light, beauty, darkness, grey, blurring the lines. All of the things that I love. Strung together with magnificent words to help play out the book in my head as I read it on the page. Is it any wonder that Trisha Wolfe is my favorite Indie author? 5 quills!!

    There are times where you need a book to push you a wee bit out of your comfort zone. There are books that drive you to the edge of your boundaries. This is one of those books. While WTTB2 is the middle of the series, this is far from simple filler. This isn't fits being connected for the sake of book three. Quinn and Avery are tested. Can they be honest with each other? How far are they willing to go to catch The Alpha? How far are they willing to go for each other?

Can they be honest with each other? How far are they willing to go to catch The Alpha? How far are they willing to go for each other? I was mesmerized by Trisha's detailed account. I was entranced by Avery and Quinn's struggles-both in their romance and their case. I've come to expect an insane roller coaster of emotions from Mrs. Wolfe and lemme tell ya, I was not disappointed. Here's a quick run down: -Holy F***! -Ooo, c'mon c'mon! -Yeah baby! -Quinn, you're making me swoon <3 "I don't want to be right ... I just want to make sure no one else gets hurt." -Oh Avery, oh honey. Lemme take you for a drink. *plots to steal Ethan Quinn from Avery* -Aaahhhh!!! OMG, I need a moment. -Hahahahahahahah "Rope boy" hahahahaha -I can't watch, but I can't look away. -Whoa. I need a cigarette. Maybe two or three. I am excited for book three. I have to see what happens next. But at the same time I'm glad it'll be a little while because my brain might explode otherwise.

    Part 2 in the Ties series shines a light on the very reasons Trisha Wolfe is the Queen of this genre. If you love romantic suspense...it doesn't get any better than this! It's a love/hate relationship, I love the not being able to predict what happens next, but I hate not knowing...I love how these character care about each other and work to protect one another, but I hate that the things they've had to do cause dissent and mistrust among them...I love how strong and committed they are, but hate Part 2 in the Ties series shines a light on the very reasons Trisha Wolfe is the Queen of this genre.

Yes, this story is perfect, it is the very reason why I read...in fact at one point in this story, I needed to remind myself to breathe before I passed out. We still don't know who the Alpha is...it looks as though this mystery has been solved, but the gut of a stellar detective knows better. I'm really looking forward to (not) the conclusion of this series, it's bittersweet, these characters have woven their way into our hearts as only the intricacies of a Trisha Wolfe character/story could...and I'm dying to see the Alpha get what's coming to him/her....hmmmm...

    This was a phenomenal book. Quinn, Avery & Sadie is back to unravel the mystery of who the Alpha is! A fast paced, very suspenseful story line, nail biting. Sexy dark romance.

Will he be able to protect Avery before the Alpha gets to her again... When I finished this book, it left me wanting MORE. MORE Avery. MORE Quinn. MORE Sadie. And, to find out what happens next I CANNOT WAIT to read the next book in this series! I am gratefully honored to read and review Tisha's book.

    With Ties that Bind, Book Two This book keeps you riveted from start to finish. All twists and turns, and no, you don't get to know who the "Alpha" is. The descriptions bring it to life in all its gruesomeness!! The characters are very likeable and you can't help but love them. Quinn who is all about the rules, struggles with bending the law so he can protect Avery. Avery faces her demons with a strength that even surprises her but she is still so very vulnerable.

Through the whole book the story is tense and you are just waiting for something to happen, but one of the lighter moments in this book is when Quinn and Avery are getting "intimate" and he thought it was the sexiest thing ever when she folded up his shirt......Poor Quinn and his OCD.......it was hysterical. I can't wait to read the next one so hopefully I won't have to wait too long.

    Cant get enough of this series Love this series. I am still trying to guess who the alpha is with no luck. Can't wait for the next book. Very suspenseful. All the characters are well developed and strong heroines in Sadie and Avery. If you like strong women, suspense, alpha males you'll love this series. Cant get enough of this series Love this series.
