Bound by Blood is the second in the Betrayed series by Victoria Renteria. In the first book of the series, the groundwork is laid for the relationship between Alex, or Alexander James Grant, a Captain in the Army who is also the leader of a Delta force team. He meets and falls for Kylee, a colonel’s daughter and a teacher.We learn of her past, and how horrific her upbringing was.
At the beginning of Bound, Alex has been called to an important job with his unit. As he sits and listens to the briefing, he realizes in horror that the kidnapped colonel’s daughter just happens to be his Kylee. Not knowing who has her makes it all that much worse, and her own father wants in on the operation.
Meanwhile, someone close to Kylee turns out to be the perpetrator, and proceeds to rain down all sorts of brutal torture on her. (Warning: Some of this is graphic and may offend some readers) But Alex and his team do what they have to do to get to the bottom of who has her, and that means anything.
There are some truly cringe-worthy moments here, some definite hanky ones too, but all in all, a book so very hard to put down once you have picked it up. Renteria weaves a mesmerizing tale, and I for one am holding my breath waiting for the final installment.
