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.
I have a new book boyfriend, and his name is Jason “Ryke” Ryker.
Ryke and Kate have each gone through tragedies and are at different stages in the healing process when they meet. Their journey is heartbreaking at times, and Ms. Rothert did an amazing job dealing with their grief. The thoughts and emotions Kate and Ryke felt very real.
I found it difficult to read through the tears at times, but the story also had the prefect balance of humor. I’ve become a big fan of Ms. Rothert, and Bound is another testament to her amazing talent.
