Teaser Tuesday # 146 ~ Bound (Fire on Ice #1) by Brenda Rothert

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Tease for this week comes from:

(Fire on Ice #1)
Brenda Rothert   

First - The Blurb:

College senior Kate Camden has learned to adapt - to her last year of school, to the promise of motherhood, to the fact that she’s doing it all alone. But just when she’s learned to adjust, heartache threatens to break her apart. 

Pro hockey player Jason “Ryke” Ryker has it all: adoring fans, a promising career, and a beautiful wife. But when his seemingly perfect life is shaken by tragedy, he’s left questioning whether having it all is ever more than an illusion.

When circumstance brings Kate and Ryke together, they discover they don’t have to hurt alone. Bound by a grief that haunts them both, they must rely on one another to survive heartbreak. But that grief is more powerful than they realize, and the tie that binds them together may ultimately tear them apart.

Second - The Tease:

Tease 1
"This is the prize I want," he said. "Let me spend tonight with your heart instead of your head."

Tease 2
The two of us were bound together by the thread of grief, but it wasn't just our mutual losses that united us. We'd survived them, found each other, and discovered that sometimes, from darkness can come light. 

Bound is written from two POV (Kate's and Ryke's). Both having suffered the loss of a loved one, they meet at a grief center and quickly form a connection. Although tenuous at first, their relationship soon develops into more, and slowly, they begin to help heal each other.

There are a few places where the story seemed a little disjointed, but it wasn't a major issue, and for the most part, it is well told. An emotional read worth your time.

My Rating: 4 out of  5
