Ok, so I admit, I don't think I realized that this was a menage story when I downloaded it. If I had, I probably would have overlooked it, because generally speaking I just don't care for menage plot lines. However, I DO like Kate Pearce which is why I went for this one. For such a short read (about 44 pages), I really enjoyed it. It was seriously HOT, which is another reason I got this one, because even though multiple partner stories aren't my thing, I do love my romances to be hot, erotic, and explicit. (Yeah, ok, I'll read the sweet stuff too, but sometimes those just aren't as fun.) The Ties That Bind was a nice, quick read that I was able to finish just before bed. Pearce was able to pack a fair amount of backstory into a short space which is helpful since the shorter format doesn't allow for much character development. I was introduced to Kate Pearce through her Tudor Vampire books, and I will definitely keep coming back for more of her books.
I recommend this novella to anyone who likes their romances hot and erotic.

I really need to get at least one of these books finished soon considering how many books I just picked up from the library. lol At this rate my TBR isn't going to go down during this challenge, it's just going to keep increasing.
