Book Review: The Blood That Bonds
4 Stars and it just so happens to be a free, FREE, download on all platforms!
Nineteen year old forced heroin addict and lady of the night Two Majors has a problem, well two problems. There is seemingly no way out until someone…special pays for her time and attention one night.
Her pimp doesn’t care about the age of his ‘girls’ as long as they perform and he keeps them bound to him by supplying their daily dose and a brand so if they do manage to maintain some semblance of sanity and run away others will call him to come and get them.
All of this changes the night Theroen comes into her life, shows her a bit of freedom and kindness and befriends her.
This is not a happy book. There is no Happily Ever After, at least not the kind we all hope for. There is, however, love, angst, hatred and betrayal and a second and third book which I plan on reading once other reading obligations are fulfilled.
The Blood That Bonds is a heart thumper page turner which I was hard pressed to put down and managed to go to bed 45 minutes late in order to finish!
