Bound to You by Alyssa Brandon #Review #Romance #YA #Paranormal

A stubborn teen faces off with her brooding, indifferent (but super hot) soulmate in this unique and sexy take on a classic paranormal romance story.


Title: Bound to You  

Author: Alyssa Brandon

Published by: Swoon Reads

Publication date: April 10th 2018

Genres: Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult

My Review:

Eighteen year old Megan Ross has been eagerly anticipating meeting her mate. Her father is one of the most powerful Alpha of Alphas and she’s something like a wolf shifter princess. Most shifters find their mates by the time they’re sixteen and she’s really hoping to meet hers, her Prince Charming, at her birthday party. Well that dream comes true. He is there. They do meet. However, that’s where her dreams and reality start to diverge!

He’s a warrior wolf and he obviously really doesn’t want to be her mate. He’s cold, uncommunicative and his first move after their mating is announced is to take her to his home – a castle like home in Canada, miles away from her family and friends! He has secrets he’s not willing to share, a mate he is desperate not to bond with and his pack is like nothing she’s ever encountered before. This shifter princess is not in for the fairy tale romance she’s always dreamed of!

This is a  brilliant paranormal romance that I thoroughly enjoyed. The contrast in Megan’s expectations and reality are dramatic but I loved reading how she matured in this story. Much of the story is about the sexual tension between the couple, fitting into unfamiliar situations, developing relationships and learning to love. It is a well crafted story and different take on shifter romances. I really hope it will be the first in a series as I’d like to read more about the Warrior pack and their fight to protect the other shifters!

I requested and was lucky enough to be given a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.


She’s met her mate . . . and he’s met his match.

Megan Ross has been waiting her whole life for her mate to come and sweep her off her feet. But the wolf she meets on the beach is NOT the sweet gentle boy she’s been dreaming of. Instead, he’s a warrior, one whose suffering has led him to lock his heart away in a prison as cold and hard as a diamond, who fights to resist the bond and their deep attraction.

Far from home, with a soulmate who is still a stranger, Megan learns that the path to true love isn’t quite as straight and easy as she thought . . .

Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads, Alyssa Brandon’s debut novel Bound to You is guaranteed to make readers swoon, sigh, and maybe even cry before it’s over.

      Thank you, Giselle. Thanks for letting me participate in the tour and read this book. Megan’s a great character as the story develops (a bit too princessy to start with but she definitely grows up and grows on you)! I love it when an author helps you see a character develop like this 🙂
