Bonded

Bonded by Nicky Charles Book Summary

Reno’s a tough Enforcer for Lycan Link who finds himself drawn to Brandi but duty rules his life. Brandi, just on the edge of starting her career as a Disaster Control officer, falls for Reno at first sight, but are they really meant to be? Is it love or lust and does it really even matter? Enforcers and DCs don't get along...unless fate forces them to. Bonded precedes The Mating.

- Love her writing.5 star

Her stories are intense. The romance is great in her books and not too smutty interspersed with nail biting action and drama. This is the fourth book of hers I’ve read and can’t wait to continue with the series.

- Why Beth....5 star

She was such a good character. She was nice, headstrong and loving a rogue. There could have totally been a book on her backstory and time with Damien. She was too good for it to end like it did.

- Loved it!5 star

I hope this comes out as a 5 star review because that is how I want it. This is another great book by an amazing author! I can't wait to read the next one, I'm off to find it now! I hope you love this story as much as I do!

- Addicted!!5 star

I have never read any books before on "paranormal" things, Bonded was my first and I not only is it brilliantly written but this first book in the series spins a great picture in your head as the story plays out. I couldn't put it down! I look forward to the next book!!

- Bonded4 star

As in all Nicky Charles books, I love the depth of the characters. Fun reads!

- Couldn't put it down!5 star

Great read! Love every second of this book,you won't regret purchasing !!

- Love it!5 star

A good read!

- Fair3 star

Fairly good, a little too word-y for me, not enough sex, way too much fluff and not enough interaction between the two main characters- I skimmed through most of the last third of the book to finally get to where the characters finally - finally - get together

- Great read5 star

I really enjoyed the book. It's an interesting view of how these human/wolves coexist within one person. It's very easy to get sucked in straight away. Not everything is tied up nicely, at the end, so it definitely has me starting the next one, like now. It was a free read from iTunes and I'm not sure how people are able to not charge for their work, but I'd definitely pay for it, if it's no longer free.

- MUST READ!!!5 star

This is an AWESOME book!! It kept me on the edge of my seat. I will continue reading the series.

It was a good story. The only complaint I have is that some of the chapters weren't complete. The last bits of some of the chapters were cut off then the next chapter began. I really enjoyed the read! Thanks for having it available.

Woww. This book is beautifully written. I couldn't put it down. I started neglecting house chores because I was so into this book like a Lifetime movie. Yal this book is definitely on my top 5 most favorite. This book will appeal to all audiences. Btw I'm 24 years old :)

- Really1 star

What a snore. He should get it, love it, mate it, get on with it. I don't care for 900 pages of 'blades of grass blowing in the wind' snore festival. I skimmed, then gave up, don't waste your time

Great story's Wish they were real life I have read all the books by this author all I can say is,,, I don't know if I can ever find anything so erotic, tender, loyal, these characters filled with so much love I am ruined for any other authors Thank you for the journey One heck of a ride

- The ending.3 star

Okay so it took my all 1063 pages to have an ending like that? There was no clear ending for the two main characters. For all the twists and turns and the long long looooooooong wait it took for the main characters to even end up together. The writing is really good if you get past how dragged out everything was but my god the ending needs work. Not really fair to the reader.

- Excellent series5 star

I really love this series of books. Like a good movie you can watch over and over again I have read these books several times. When I have a few days of down time that is - because once I start them I can't put them down! The characters, the plots, I love them all. More every time I read them. The only - I'll call it negative about this series ( and I really wish I could think Of a better word, less harsh) is that the series is "the law of the Lycans" and while I love love love all "others" I wish that the characters from the first three books could have been carried over into the later books a bit. Would love to know what happens to them. Maybe Nicky could "bring them up" in the next books she writes for this series? That said I recommend these books to anyone who enjoys hot shifter stories. You would be doing yourself an injustice by not reading this series.

- Thank you5 star

Loved this novel and can't wait to read more of your work! Will be sharing with my friends and donating to our local food bank! Thank you for sharing your art, creativity and generosity of spirit with your audience! *A fan

- Surprised5 star

I ended up liking the story a lot more than I thought I would, some of it felt like a cat and mouse game and then I was pleasantly surprised. Despite some pretty convenient fragments, I feel like the story was well thought out and I'm looking forward to the next books.

- Bonded4 star

Y Bonded 7/10 Full length ebook. Werewolf story of Brandi and Reno who both work in an organisation fighting Purists who abuse half werewolves and their families. In a demonstration fight Brandi gets some of his blood on her lip, and because she is aroused when she swallows it she is accidentally blood-bonded to him. Not wanting him to feel trapped she doesn't tell him and she tries to block the mental connection. Her wolf insists he is her mate, but she fights the attraction. Seeing an Academy report saying he is a Rogue has shaped Reno from a young age and he believed he was never suitable to have a mate or live peacefully in a pack, so despite his attraction and his wolf wanting to claim her he keeps his distance, for her sake.

- Law of Lycans5 star

All excellent compelling reads that you can't put down. I have thoroughly recommended to all my friends who enjoy the paranormal genre. The characters are strong & diverse, plot lines interest with clever twists! Read the info on the website about the best order in which to read the books.

- Bonded5 star

*sigh*.....I always hate finishing a good book.

- Bonded5 star

OMG!! I originally downloaded Mated and started reading it - I was engrossed! But when I realised that there were 3 more in the series I stopped and downloaded them as well as I wanted to start at the beginning with Bonded! Like many other readers I couldn't stop reading and I was finished in a couple of days! I felt so guilty being so absorbed by the book but couldn't help myself. I can't wait to start again on Mated and work my way through the rest of the books, but I will have to pace myself! These were the first books I downloaded while playing around with my new iPad - very impressed! Fantastic books Nicky, keep on writing them! Rita

- Bonded4 star

Excellent story could not put it down until finished

- More?5 star

Would love another book, a fabulous series.

- Great book5 star

Loved it please write more

- Bonded5 star

Awesome!!!

- Mel Stubbs5 star

These books are so far from what I normally read no one believed I was reading them. And I'm hooked. LOVE them. Can not wait for the next one. The story lines are great. Very well written, everything is there for a reason not just to fill a page. And I love the little twists and turns. Keep writing I need to no more!

- Can't open it!!1 star

I've downloaded it but it says I cannot read this format on My iPhone 😔

- Bonded5 star

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Loved the characters and the plot which had me guessing (wrongly, I may add!). The only little niggle I had was the length of time it took for the two main characters to admit to their feelings for each other! It was so frustrating for intelligent people to act so cowardly and dense!! So that's the only criticism I have; it took too long for the hero and heroine to get together! Didn't stop me giving 5 stars though!

- I'm on the Last Book of the Series...5 star

I found it a little hard to get into the first book, possibly because I had no idea what it was about. However 2 chapters in and I was hooked. Read the whole series in the last few weeks and looking forward to the new release later this year! Can be slightly confusing where to start, as the books have an order - but not that in which they were written. However, its told in such a way that its not a problem anyway. Brilliantly writen, engrossing story line, well worth the read!

- Bonded4 star

Very interesting insight to the life of were and their partners. Such big organisation still unable to keep everything under control. Amazing story.

- Good read!!5 star

Surprised by how much I enjoyed this... And then pleasantly surprised by the fact that instead of paying for the book Nicky is instead asking for a donation to a dog rehoming charity or something similar... I shall be doing this. Thank you Nicky.

- Good read5 star

Loved this book even although I had read books 4 and 5 first.

Fantastic book, could not put it down x

I have never read a series of books before that got better with each reading.I have just finished the Bonded and it was more exciting and thrilling then all the other books and I thought they were great.if you haven't read them...I would say they are a must to read.one just can't put the book down amazing.now I'm off to read the next one

- Different3 star

The other novels in this series had me gripped on every word, however I found this book different. It was descriptive to the point where I glanced over paragraphs without fulling reading them so I could follow the storyline. I loved the story but it didn't have the same pace as the others.

- Amazing Author!5 star

From the moment I stumbled upon Nicky Charles books I've been head over heals in love with each one. For the first time, in a long time, I've actually found books that I couldn't put down and found myself fighting to get to the end of the book to know what happens at the end. I just hope some amazing director finds these books and makes them into films, as I know just like these books they would be my favourite!

- 10 out of 95 star

I absolutely love this book couldn't put it down read it within two days and I struggled very hard not to go to sleep so I could finish it!

- Fantastic5 star

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series of books! 😃

- Bonded5 star

Fantastic loved everyone in the seris

- Ok could of been better3 star

This is my 3rd book I've read in this series. I found the book quite boring in parts. The story between Reno and brandi seemed to go on forever and got quite tedious. However once the action started I was gripped and really enjoyed it.

- Exciting5 star

Wow can't wait to read the next

- Loved it!!5 star

Really enjoy these books, you get to know the characters well and can in visage the world they live in! Would to see this on tv or a film. Keep it up!

- Bonded3 star

Really enjoyed the story and characters, however I thought this book was too long for its plot. I often found myself just skimming over the over-descriptive parts...two pages to describe scenery is too much!

- Bonded4 star

Excellent read as all the other were books in this series, just downloaded the next one.

- The wolf5 star

I have really enjoyed these books about werewolves I hope there is more to come

- Bonded5 star

Is there a second bonded book out there to finish the story what happened to Reno Brandi and of course Damien

- Wow this book is a must read!..5 star

It's just as well I'm self employed otherwise I would have got the sack for reading at work. The story was gripping and real page turner. I have been compelled to read the entire series of books. The characters are fabulous and the books contain just the right amount of steam to keep you turning the pages. Donna x

- Awesome Read!5 star

Unputdownable! It's now 2am, just had to finish it! More please Nicky

- Brilliant, absolutely brilliant!!5 star

Loved each book & just hope there's more to come.

- Absolutely great!5 star

The Lycan laws series are all thrilling, tense reads full of wonderful characters and heart stopping plots; the author manages to weave romance, fantasy, action and a hint of horror in these great stories. First class for the price and leaves you on your knees for more... Buy it!!

- Phew!!5 star

These books were an unexpected surprise and I'm hooked!!! Another brilliant read...which ones next?!!

This book kept my on the edge of my seat, it was thrilling and a confused romance type of book. So now I guess I'm going to read the next one but if I could have done it over I would have read this book before them all!

- Great book!5 star

Loved it!

- Great Read!!5 star

Full of great characters and the storyline is great. I picked up the book every time I had a chance. Wondering what was going to happen next. You must read this book before reading betrayed, so you under stand what's going on. Enjoy!

So happy for Reno & Brandi! Please keep writing!! Seriously love your books!! ❤️

I enjoy reading all his book , they are all grate stores.

I love this whole series. I really enjoy the scenes I see in my head based on your writing, but I would love this turned into an HBO series or a movie!!! How do we make that happen?

- Loved It5 star

the book like all the rest was really good. I loved it please keep on writing more.

- Love these books5 star

I am very glad I came across these books. Well written.

- What Bond?3 star

This story was frustrating... Brandi and Reno didn't do it for me. They took too long to figure it out. I kept reading hoping and waiting for the magical romance and sparkling love scenes... I give it three stars because of the story around their jobs.

- Bonded5 star

Thrilling! Keeps me riveted and wanting to read more. What is next?

- Bonded5 star

Awesome read. Page turner. Well written. In my opinion, a very enjoyable, compelling read.

- Great but long3 star

I really love this series. I guess this is the first book but I'm reading it last in the series. I love how these books flow from on to the other. Great ongoing Saga. This book was a bit long and drawn out at times. I love how drawn the characters are to each other but there is all thus resistance going on its a bit a irritating. We worth reading.

- Victoria4 star

This book was a great and easy read. It was not the best of what I have read by this author. Some things conversations were repetitive by the Reno and Brandi, which only set to prolong the reading in my opinion. Good never the less.

- Good books5 star

I think this book was great. I have also read the other books and enjoyed them as well. Thanks for the great books to read.

- Put it on the big screen4 star

This is definitely becoming one of my favorite series. I would love to see it as a movie or tv series. I'm in love with the characters and how they all connect from book to book.

- Great book5 star

This book and the Lycan series are a must read

- Best Book Yet3 star

I really enjoyed Bonded. It's the best one in the serious so far. Having the characters have a job not centering on pack life was great. It had so much more dept and layers. Brandi and Reno relationship stretching over years instead of the standard week or two also made it more realistic and believable.

- ❤5 star

I LOVE YOUR BOOKS. I've read the whole series and I'm in love, they're all different. & it's very exciting to see different point of views from the characters 😊 keep doing what you do best!

- bonded5 star

Yet another one that kept me reading through the night. Keep them coming.

- Bonded4 star

I wish I had read this book first. It sets the scenario for all the other three. It's an enjoyable read with enough action for anybody .

- These just keep getting better!5 star

Love the couple and the change in the sequence! Sexy, fun read with lots of action!

- What an awesome book!5 star

I downloaded The Mating a long time ago and finally went back to finish reading it. I loved it! What a nice surprise to find out there was a whole series! I immediately downloaded all the books and read Bonded. What an amazing book! I loved the romance, the dedication the characters had towards their careers each other. I admired Reno's Enforcer's role and Brandi's perseverance to succeed. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. Nicky Charles' story telling takes you inside this world as if it truly existed.

- Sfrostwolf5 star

Loved the story!!!!! I am a huge wolf fan and loved Reno and Brandi. I wish I could read more about them, but apparently the sequel is about Damian and not about them. Wish I could read about them some more:(

- Lots of sex but good!5 star

The sex scenes are spicy but are exactly the same in all her books. I think she must copy and past it to each couple. The books are a great read! Its a mix of the werwolves in twilight and the action is amazing, moments of soap opera scenes.

- Bonded4 star

I have read several of Ms Charles books and enjoyed them all. I find her stories entrigeing and well written. They have a unique and serious sence of human nature. Irate her work on par with my favorite author, Nora Roberts. Keep up the good work.

- This entire series rocks!5 star

I am amazed at the story line. This was such a great read. Nicky Charles has done it again. I am so ready to start the next book! The series is amazing, check it out!

- Best book yet5 star

I used to love reading supernatural romance stories when I was a teenager, but asI got older all I found were stories for teens. I am so happy I found this author. These stories are intelligent and offer great back stories.

- Meep5 star

Please please never stop writing such awesome books!!!!!

- Bonded4 star

Good book. Plan on reading the others
