Bound Together by Eliza Jane

Buy the book:
 Book summary 

"Seventeen-year-old Zoey needs an escape from some personal drama, like her mom’s depression and taking care of her four younger siblings. She finds the perfect distraction in a frenemies-with-benefits arrangement with irritatingly hot football captain, Matt, during their class trip to Paris. There’s no chance of falling for someone whose only ambition in life is to stay in their hick town and one day take over his parent’s tire store. But far from home and personal responsibilities, his cocky grin and easy attitude start to grow on her as they explore the seductive city of Paris together..."

What I thought about it...

    Before I start gushing about this novel I have to warn you about one thing. Do not read blurb on Goodreads. It reveals too much. Just pick up the book and read.

   My secret wish is to go to Paris one day. Why secret? Well, I usualy go around dissing Paris and being annoyed with all the stereotypes, but deep down - I'm one big sucker for everything French. (My latest obsession would be Kingsley Edge from The Original Sinners series.) But you won't hold that agaist me. I hope.

   There are few things that could make you think this is just another typical young adult story. Football capitan and unpopular girl, trip to the most romantic city on the world, family drama... Sometimes typical stuff can be used in interesting ways. Bound Together is proof for that. It balances on that delicate line between realistic and stereotypical.

   Zoey is not fragile girl, she doesn't think about fitting in and she takes what she wants. Same thing goes for Matt. Put those two together and you get fireworks. There are few hot scenes, really hot scenes, but they are not far from real life.

   I hope that you are going to find Bound Together - suport inde autors.
Until next time,

  4. Ahh, I've found quite few summaries that give away too much. :/ Annoying isn't it?

  5. There are few of those on GR - you don't have to read book at all.

  6. I agree, typical concepts can be used well, it's just the pulling it off that has to work. I quite like the sound of this book. The couple on the cover are gorgeous! Lovely review, Tanja. :)

  7. Oh this is a fab review, by reading the summary you would think that it's going down the same route that loads of books have been down before but I'm glad it provides a lot more than that! :)
