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?
Can be read as a standalone
BOUND IN BLUE by Jessica Ingro took me on a drama filled, sexy, intense ride. Never have I related so much to one character, then I did with Megan Huntley, the amazing female lead. The loss, the guilt that Megan feels with losing her twin sister has become a part of her, something horrible and gut wrenching she lives with every single day. It’s to where she really isn’t living at all, she is just going through the motions, day in and day out, filling her daily schedule with work and leaving no room for anything else. Relationships are messy, dates are useless, getting close to anyone is out of the question. Quick, down and dirty, one night stand sex is all she wants from the opposite sex, nothing more, nothing less. Megan Huntely has gotten comfortable in her routine, until she meets the deliciously gorgeous Shane “Mack” MacAllister.
Mack brings out something almost primal in Megan and dammit, she likes it. A quick and amazingly intense fuck in a supply closet at the hospital is all they share, until six months later, when fate decides to be a bitch and brings Mack back in her life.
The love of Mack’s life was taken away from him early on and he has never recovered. He has it in his head that he will never love again, that he has to heart to give because it was taken so long ago. Another life just going through the motions, not really living, just being. That one night in the supply closet with Dr. Huntley did something to him. She brought some light into his every encasing darkness. When he sees the beautiful doctor again after all of those months, he decides he is not letting her get away that easy again.
BOUND IN BLUE is not just a story about a second chance at love, but also about a second chance at life. Both have experienced great loss in their lives and that drove them to seek out short-term sex with no attachments. The spark that ignites between Megan and Mack is undeniable and pretty soon, they can’t help but gravitate back towards one another. Darkness clouds their heart and soul, but each time they are together the darkness seems to fade away, walls start to crumble, and hearts start to mend.
Even though, BOUND IN BLUE is third in the LOVE SQUARE Series by Ms. Ingro, it can absolutely be read as a standalone. I can attest to that because this is the first LOVE SQUARE book I have read from Jessica. After reading this amazing, romantic, heartbreaking love story, and witnessing the depth and emotion that Jessica puts into her work, I can safely say, that I will definitely go back to read the rest of the series.
