Blog Tour Stop ~Bound in Blue by Jessica Ingro~

Synopsis
Strong ties aren’t easily broken…
First loves have the ability to fill us with hope and then shatter us when they end. Some people can pick up the pieces and move on. Others simply learn how to exist as a fragment of the person that they used to be.
Shane “Mack” MacAllister is one of the ones simply existing. His wife Ella died at a young age, leaving him alone and broken. Shane knew he’d never be able to give himself to another, believing there was nothing left to give. That is until a young, feisty doctor blazed into his life and made him rethink letting someone into what’s left of his tattered heart.
Dr. Megan Huntley has devoted her life to taking care of others, ever since her twin sister was brutally murdered. She might not have been able to save her sister, but she has made it her mission to help other victims. Long hours in the Emergency Room and volunteer work at the Rape Crisis Center leave little time for relationships. When Megan meets the rugged and handsome Shane MacAllister, she decides to throw caution to the wind and take the police detective for a ride. Too bad she can’t get him out of her head… or her life.
Will Shane and Megan be bound together by true love? Or will past loves and tragedy tear them apart?

Review

I have had this page pulled up for about two hours now trying to figure out how I am suppose to write this review. I keep straying to look at Facebook and check my email. I guess Jessica felt I needed a push because I got a message from her. She wanted to know my opinion in a round about way, the one damn thing I was struggling with at that moment. I wanted to ask her if her ears were burning. I want to thank her. The light bulb went on. So, here it goes.

When I finished Bound in Blue, I had two feelings. One, complete hangover and two I was sad. At first I wasn’t sure why I was sad. I mean, the story was epic, why would that feeling creep in.  I realized that it’s because Bound in Blue took Love Square’s spot on my top reads by Jessica.

I started reading Jessica Ingro when she first published Love Square. I have always held that book on a pedestal. I connected with the author and I was sure, even though she struggled with some people not understanding that story, she could never write a better story. Well folks, she did. Bound in Blue, blew any book she has written out of the water.

I’m being honest here when I say I didn’t even care about Mack when he made his appearance in the last book, nor did I care about Megan. I was kind of shocked that the author wanted to pursue those characters. I guess that’s why she is the author because she proved me wrong when I thought they would be boring to read about.

Shane, yes, Mack is his nickname and we are officially on a first name basis, is beautiful to me. I’m sure if he were real he would make me change that word to describe him. He’s broken and doesn’t trust. I loved every minute of him. I loved his struggle and his need for control. This man has unexpectedly made his way on to my ultimate Book Boyfriends list and I didn’t even like him in His Ever After. How the hell does that happen?

Now I know this isn’t a conventional review about the book or the what the story is about, but you get that with the synopsis and with other reviews. This series is so worth the risk and the read.  Jessica Ingro just gets better with every book. She takes risks with her taboo stories and I am proud to say I am a fan of hers. I will never question her again about who she is writing about next, that’s for sure.

Excerpt

 

Standing
at the bar, I flagged down the bartender and ordered two beers. Waiting for my
change, I jumped when warm breath danced against the skin of my neck. “Tell
your friend you’re leaving. I want
you naked and lying on your bed in exactly thirty minutes.” The word friend was
said like it tasted bad.
“And
if I say no?” The words came out breathlessly as my body tingled with
anticipation.
“Punishment.”
A full body shiver worked through me. One word, highly effective.
“I
can’t waste my beer,” I argued.
Mack
positioned his hands on either side of my body and leaned into my back, getting
as close as he could to me. My belly pressed into the bar, and I thought he
might kiss me, but after several seconds he plucked a bottle from in front of
me. “Now you have no excuse.” I jumped when he landed a smack on my butt, and
then I was watching his back saunter away with my beer.
Still
reeling from what just happened, I shook my head and followed him to the
backroom. The whole way I argued with myself over whether or not I was going to
do as he said. On the one hand, I really wanted my fix of him. It was one of
the reasons I had come out tonight. Okay, it was actually the reason. On the other hand, I hadn’t seen John in a really long
time, and I didn’t like the idea of Mack making me leave when he wanted me to.
And the threat of punishment wasn’t so much of a deterrent, but rather
compelled me to want to disobey him.
Mack
was lowering himself in a seat next to Kara when I hit the room. My heart
skipped a beat at how good he looked. His tight white t-shirt stretched across
his chest, and his long legs were clad with worn blue jeans. He leaned back in
the chair and stretched his leg out in front of him, crossing them at the
ankle. He looked casual and laidback, but his eyes were avidly watching me with
an attentiveness that until that point I’d only seen him use in the bedroom. It
was enough to convince me to leave.
“Didn’t
you get yourself one?” John asked when I handed him his beer.
“Nah.
Got called into work. I’m off on Sunday if you want to come over for dinner.
I’ll make sauce.”
His
grin was infectious and I found myself smiling even though my insides were
knotted after my conversation with Mack. “I could never pass up your sauce.
I’ll bring a bottle of wine.” John leaned in and kissed my cheek. “I’m glad I
ran into you. I was afraid after all this time away you just didn’t want to see
me anymore.” Even though his tone was joking, I knew he meant the words. After
our history, I couldn’t blame him for being concerned.
“Never,”
I said with conviction. “I really have to go. I’ll see you Sunday.”
“Sunday.”
I
turned on my heel and pushed through the crowd towards the exit. Looking over
my shoulder, my eyes met Mack’s and I swear I felt his gaze straight down to my toes.
