Renteria left us with a cliffhanger in the last book – which of course, had me dying to read Bound by Blood. It did not disappoint. An emotional page-turner, if you are looking for your next great read, look no further than Victoria Renteria’s Betrayed series.
In book two of the Betrayed series, the second book picks up where book one left off. And then descends into a dark and disturbing roller-coaster ride that had me turning the page transfixed. Nothing was predictable! Kylee’s disturbing past is introduced in the first book, but that is just the icing on the cake. This girl has some serious mommy issues which come to light in Bound by Blood. Everything has been going well for Kylee, new city, new country, new beau…and then her BLOOD has to come in and ruin it, abducting her. And then the story gets disturbing and emotional. If there wasn’t Alex – well I don’t know what I would have done. He’s the hero in the story and Kylee’s man. He’s also a member of a special ops team – and now they have one goal – find Kylee.
Did I mention this was an emotional roller-coaster? It is. I have to warn you – it might not be for everyone, because Renteria does not hold back. Seriously. It’s all types of twisted and different. This isn’t your garden variety romance. But, it’s one you won’t regret experiencing. But, again I do have to stress — if you’re sensitive to certain subjects – this is not the book for you. If you like your romance on the darker side, you should be one-clicking this one right now.

She now resides in the sunny Tampa, Florida area with her husband, son, and two amazing boxers. When she isn’t writing, you can find her on the beach or hiking. Maybe even writing on the beach . . .
