Grace is young and has led a sheltered life. She hasn’t yet taken much of an interest in men. It’s only while doing an internship in London, where she meets the alluring Jonathan Huntington, that our sleeping beauty is awoken from her slumber. Jonathan is rich, incredibly attractive, and stems from British royalty – but he is a far cry from Prince Charming. He lures Grace ever deeper into his world of sinister passion, and she is sucked further and further into the maelstrom of her own growing desires. But when Jonathan demands she do the unthinkable to prove her love for him, she realizes just how dangerous her feelings for him are.
Kathryn Taylor has been a writer since childhood – publishing her first story when she was eleven years old. From then on, she knew that she wanted to be a professional author one day. After a few career detours and a happy ending in her personal life, her dream has finally come true: UNBOUND – COLOURS OF LOVE is her first novel.
~ My Thoughts~
For being her first novel I very much enjoyed reading it. It was different from the usual which is always nice to see. It was to me like soft bdsm. It really didn’t get much into it other then a soft cloth used to tie her wrists, but it did so in a way that was great. Let me explain what I mean here: This is Kathryn’s first novel. The main character Grace is a virgin, never before introduced to bdsm let alone sex. It isn’t clear how experienced Jonathan is but it is obvious he is definitely more experienced then Grace. So to me in my mind it is almost like Kathryn decided to start slow and build up from here. If she threw it all in to her first then what would come next?
Speaking of what comes next let me skip a bit and talk about that ending. It was both good and Infuriating. Why? Because, it is good in the sense that it leaves it so open that there just has to be another book following it because IT REALLY CAN NOT JUST END LIKE THAT!! What a MAJOR cliff hanger and right there at the end. Are you kidding me? Again I like it because it seems to say there is more to come which I LOVE because I want to know why happens and where do they go from there? But it SUCKS because I DO NOT want to wait. I want to know NOW! Damn it!!!
The middle was good. My only half bad but not really bad thing would be that at one point while reading this book I thought hmm I wonder how much more of the book is left. So I tapped on the screen and it says I was 53% into the book. My first thought was wow really I am only a little over half, because I thought I was further then that. However, my next thought was well so much more could still happen and guess what? So much more did happen. I just kept reading. Finished this entire book in one day. Any book I can get through in one day is a good book.
I loved Grace as a character. She was bold where I would want to be bold only I am much too chicken shit to actually be bold. I give her her props for that because seriously I wish I spoke my mind like she does, even if it were only a fourth of the time she does. She is also scared and unsure of herself but she is that way at the right times and places and I feel like I would be too if I were her so she is very much believable.
Jonathan, Jonathan… he is like any other untouchable, set in his way man. Only pretty hot. He is very closed off. He is one of those men that girls think oh maybe I am that special one he will open up to, be with. Maybe he will let me in and the sad part is most girls risk their own heart being broken to try to be that special one for him/them. Will Grace be that special someone for Jonathan? Guess you will have to pick up the book and find out.
I know I am anxiously waiting for Kathryn’s next book and I can only hope it is a continuation of this book because I JUST HAVE TO KNOW!!!! WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?!?
