* * * * *

You’re definitely worth two million, Mia. Think about it. Two million. Five years. Your brother will go free. It’s a contract.

These are the words of the gorgeous billionaire James Maxwell, the man who makes my heart race and my body tremble with longing. I want to refuse his proposal, but how can I? My brother owes him two million, and as dirt poor as we are, there’s no way we can find that much money to repay him. What’s worse, I think I’m falling in love with the man who thinks I’m just his mistress.

My name is Mia Donovan, a twenty-two-year-old, small town girl working as a kitchen hand to make ends meet. My world is changing—both for the better and worse. James Maxwell, a gorgeous billionaire with beautiful Prussian blue eyes, is the man behind this. He makes my heart flutter and my knees weak. When he kisses me, my world melts into a pool of exotic sensation. But his world is dark and dangerous, and being with him is a risk both to my life and my sanity.

This is our story.


*I received this book as an ARC from the author.*

I enjoyed reading ‘Bounded’ for James, sexual tension between the romantic leads, and James’ daughter Aria. The plot and a few characters do not make a lot of sense maybe because this book was the beginning. Mia for a twenty two year old is too childish and naive while James is swoon-worthy and hot. Mia didn’t have an easy life, being bullied and orphaned, she by twenty two should have turned smarter and stronger. Although her determination and love for her younger brother is something that I really liked.

Alexia Praks has done an amazing job in portraying the sexy sensual scenes. The best thing about the book is sparks between Mia and James. I loved the prologue.

This book apparently needs a little editing. There were times when I thought a certain situation could have been explained so much better.

‘Bounded’ was an enthralling read and the end of the story will leave you wanting more.

3.5 stars!
