Bound & Freed
I want to prove my worth, show them what I have.
I may be flawed; we all are.
But I'm smart, driven, and ready to take on the world.
No one needs to know the rest.
I wasn't counting on him, couldn't imagine someone like him coming into my life.
The blue eyes, the chiseled body, the man I can't resist.
Truthfully, I have no plans of ever resisting him.
He has the carefree, playboy life he wants,
The one he created and refuses to give up.
But he didn't count on me waltzing in and changing everything.
Gray can't deny his passion for me—all parts of me,
Even the truth I try to bury—the flaws he knows I'm hiding.
And trust me, he's imperfect too.
But sometimes, we need more than love—more than we can give.

I've been sitting on this review for over a month now, trying to find the words to express how this duet made me feel.
Stephie always makes me feel so much, I'm not an emotional reader but this woman's writing does something to me.
Annie is not a heroine that I could relate to, but Stephie writes her story to help you see and understand her reasoning behind her actions. You get so into the story and the characters minds that everything just makes sense.
I loved and hated both Annie and Gray, I wanted to bash their heads together on multiple occasions, ok, maybe more times than not! Haha!
This story will break your heart but I promise by the end of book 2 that it will be put back together. It's definitely not your typical love story, it's so much better!
I read Carina Adams review and she summed it up perfectly:
"I hated Gray. I loved Gray. I loved to hate Gray. "
I moved on.
I couldn't hold on to what was deteriorating, devastating, destroying,
And now, I have real love.
The kind that means something,
Rocking in chairs and growing old.
But, choosing between the past and future is too painful.
I was bound to Gray, but he lost me,
Let me slip through his fingers.
That was then.
This is now.
