TW: This book contains dark themes and a miscarriage.
What’s the book about?
I’ve been in hiding for four years. On the run from the man in whose bed I once slept.
I saw something I shouldn’t have seen.
Took something I shouldn’t have taken.
And he’s just found me.
But it’s not just my safety I have to worry about. I have a little boy. His little boy. The secret baby of a Russian mobster.
He told me in no uncertain terms that I’m his. That we would be a family.
But his uncle still wants me dead and I know the man who’s been hunting me is the only one who can keep us safe.
And the story continues in this explosive finale of the exhilarating Ties That Bind duet! The previous book, Mine, ended on a cliffhanger that left readers on the edge of their seat so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on His to find out what happened next. His picks up exactly where Mine left off so readers can immediately get back into the swing of things without any confusion as to who characters are or what previously happened. Picking up from the cliffhanger also means that readers are thrown straight into the action so expect heart-pounding thrills and suspense from the first line.
It’s hard to write about this story without giving too much away but I really loved how everything was finally tied up. There were so many things going on in the main plot and so many mentions of other side plots in the previous book that it was great to see how Knight and Zavarelli were able to tie everything together, even though it didn’t always feel like everything would be resolved. But don’t worry, romance lovers: This story is wrapped up to a very satisfying conclusion!
I also really appreciated how Knight and Zavarelli were able to handle sensitive topics. As mentioned in the trigger warning, there is an awful, devastating miscarriage as a result from the bad circumstance that Katya finds herself in. It’s absolutely heartbreaking. But both authors really tackle this topic respectively and show how the hero and heroine learn to cope and move past this terrible experience, but not forget.
This duet was a roller coaster of emotions and I loved every minute of it. As a long time lover of Zavarelli’s work, I knew she’d knock this one out of the park. She’s a master with words and I can’t wait to see more from her in future. As for Knight, this duet was the first time I’ve read her work and I loved it! I can’t wait to pick up more from her back list and I’m definitely going to keep an eye on her future releases too.
