    Thomas Edward is only a teenager when he escapes his working class neighborhood. He's ready for anything—except the arrival of Donovan Whyte in his life. Sophisticated and dazzlingly handsome, Dondi quickly becomes the center of Thomas Edward's universe, introducing him to a world full of drama, passion and feuding families.

    Where does What Binds Us rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Compared to the other audiobooks I've listened to, "What Binds Us" is a great read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What I liked best about this story are the characters and their developing relationships. In some way I was able to relate to their friendships and in someway their story line.


    What about Richard Magnus’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed the way he maintained a distinguish between the characters by using a different tone of voice, and the way he portrayed the characters personality.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted to read this book in one sitting but was unable to due to work. I did chapters 1-7 driving to and from work, and 8-30 on my day off work today, finished in 3 days.


    Any additional comments?

    A definite must READ!

    I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of 10 thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.", and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing...except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters.

    What did you like best about Alpha? What did you like least?

    I like that Jasinda wasn't afraid of being vulgar and going into detail, but there wasn't any substance to the story. Alpha has a mediocre plot. In all honesty The book sounds like a 12th grade creative writing, except 20 chapters long. It's predictable and the characters were all weird even Kyrie.


    What could Jasinda Wilder have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She could have left out a lot of the sex and actually wrote a story. Every chapter was sex, sex, sex, sex! Jasinda could have made the characters more lovable. I don't necessarily like any of the characters except for Leila, because that's my dog name, lol. But seriously Alpha needs a better plot it was just, sex sex, sex, done.


    What didn’t you like about Summer Roberts and Tyler Donne ’s performance?

    Tyler caught me of guard and I had almost thought there was a glitch in the app. I really couldn't get into Tyler because I had been listening to Summers the whole book, who was okay in my opinion.


    Did Alpha inspire you to do anything?

    Yeah, not to cash checks in the mail from an anonymous source.
