Publisher's Summary

Torn between two men; one was what I needed, the other was what I wanted. One man was safe and the other was dangerous. But both men would lay down their lives to save me.

ATF agent Sam Cortez is fighting to bring down the Estrada family empire, which was built on murder and corruption. Alex Estrada did what was needed to keep me safe...and paid with his life. Starting over as I try to rebuild my life, it’s clear that the past is never what it seems. What no one knew was that we were all bound by lies.

WOW, IT WAS EPIC.. & I WANT TO GIVE IT MORE STARS

This listen was just as thrilling and awesome as book 1 with just as many plot twists that you'll never see coming and a breathtaking romance that was tested over and over again but Alex and Emilia's love held true no matter what the Cartel, the Cops, life and fate threw at them.

There was heartbreaking choices, tension, danger, blood and bullets, suspense, second chances, a wealth of characters, a loveable hero and heroine, hospital visits and hospital stays, shocks, surprises, romance, sex, and a HEA ending. And finally, all the emotional turmoil that I went through along with this couple, was washed away by the beautiful Epilogue.

For me, Rebecca Shea will be an auto download from now on because she has wowed and blown me away with this Bound and Broken story as I never thought it would be so powerful, intense, gripping, nerve wracking, heartbreaking, emotional, romantic and such an absolute joy to listen to. I also hope any future books will continue to be narrated by VA and EM because their narration brought a heartbeat to all the characters, set the perfect emotional atmosphere to each chapter and enabled me to feel the heartache, the drama, the turmoil, the danger and the love as the story skilfully unfolded.

Worth a credit? I lived and breathed Alex, Emilia and Sam's story for two straight days now and I've loved every moment - so YES worth the credit..... and the sleepless nights and the cash spent on fast food dinners and the cost of my family's fractured patience with me as I became totally engrossed in this bitter-sweet love story.

Rebecca Shea sure knows how to tell a story!!

Loved this second and final book in the Broken and Bound series. Seeing how the story ends after the heart wrenching cliffhanger of the first book was a tumultuous ride filled with both heartache and joy! The narration was extremely well done by both the male and female leads which makes the Audible version of the book come to life!!
Thank you Rebecca Shea💜

Bound by this author!

My comments apply to both books. A completely engrossing story which held me captive from beginning to end with a plot full of romance and so many twists and turns which surprised me over and over. It certainly was unlike the usual events in a story which one could anticipate as a story unfolded. I know I will listen again and again to this well written story. I look forward to more of this author's work!

Five well deserved stars!!!!!

This is the second installment of Alex and Emilia's story. Do not read this story until you have read the first book.

This story will be hard to review without spoilers, but I will try.

Alex found Emilia when she was lost, alone and had no place to go. He saved her, loved her and lied to her. After finding out that Alex heads a violent drug cartel she is devastated and confused. While she is trying to come to terms with Alex's life style she meets a charming, handsome ATF officer, Sam, who tries to enlist her help in bringing down the cartel. Emilia has hard decisions to make. Will she stay with Alex or give in to her attraction to Sam?


This story has twists and turns and will definitely keep you listening.

Credit and sale worthy in this listeners opinion.

Great

We pick up right where we left off with Emelia. Her boyfriend is dead, she is living with her boyfriend's brother, Sam, and is so, so sad.

The hits keep coming and the rollercoaster we witnessed in Broken by Lies was just a precursor to the myriad of emotion thrown at us in Bound by Lies.

Rebecca Shea graces us with the happy ending we deserve after suffering through so much heartache with Emilia.

Vikas and Erin were perfect narrators for these characters. Vikas was able to give the multitude of male characters different voices, making it easy to distinguish between them.

Have you listened to any of Vikas Adam and Erin Mallon ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I listened to book 1 of this series which my first listen for narrator Vikas Adam. I've listened to more books than I can count that are narrated by Erin Mallon. She's definitely my go to female narrator.<br/>Both narrators are amazing and now I'm hooked on Vikas Adam's voice!!<br/>He has a way of telling a story that gives you all the feels. <br/>Both of their performances are unforgettable. I highly recommend listening to these narrators. You won't be disappointed!

A great conclusion to Alex and Emilia's story. If you've read Broken by Lies then Bound by Lies is a Must Read!! It picks up where book 1 left off and it takes so many unexpected turns. You'll be on the edge of your seat devouring every second of it!!

Loved this book/series!

I absolutely loved this story. I was so grateful book 2 was available when I finished book 1 and that cliffhanger!!!!
It was not predictable to me at all. The characters were all likable and redeeming and the development of the story was natural with just enough anticipation and drama.
Definitely worth a credit. Definitely worth the read.

Bound by Lies is a complete blistering intense

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Every have that one book, which burns you? like a ripple effect, scorches your mind body and soul? Then leaves you mindless! Shocked! Unable to communicate or even vocalize your thoughts? Well that is all Bound by Lies!

What did you like best about this story?

The soul, the trill and the suspense!

What about Vikas Adam and Erin Mallon ’s performance did you like?

So brilliantly done! Just a work of art!

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

yes! I couldn't put it down!

Any additional comments?

<br/>Bound by Lies is a complete blistering intense, earth shattering masterpiece! <br/>So divinely written with a high impact effect. <br/>Only to have you gasping from the very start! Then wondering, if you ever took a real breath. Since the story starts right from the point Broken by Lies left off!! <br/>Let me say the tears flowed freely. There were some points, I yelled and screamed. I seriously lost my shit to this story. This epic ride was nonstop riddler! That never seemed loose its speed or appeal! <br/>Leaving its mark on me. Which at the same time was blowing me away! <br/>From every corner a new surprise. A new reality! GASP!!! SHOCK!!! <br/>Hell I thought I might need heart meds!!! Let's say I was praying for a HEA!! Which we got!!!!
