Blood Bound by Odessa Hywell
Five stars ✨
Excellent! I loved this book as much as the previous one.
Odessa is absolutely one of my "don't think about it, just read the darn book" authors.
This book is amazing, even if it does have some pretty violent scenes.
So heed the triggers. I found the blood play and pain kink a bit hard to read at times, but this in absolutely no way pulled me out of the story or made me want to skim and skip those parts.
The plot and world building is just so brilliant, it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout.
Marcus & Holden are two very unique characters. Total psychopaths, but still lovable. Particularly Holden. He's an absolute hoot in his confident 'devil may care' approach to life. I just adored Holden.
Really, without elaborating any more on the story, I'm saying, just do yourself a favour and read this book. It's worth a read and re-read!
Highly recommended the book and the series.
° Can be appreciated as a standalone.
° Dual pov. First person present tense.
° Heat level: 5 🔥 for intimacy and violence (18+ only)

I absolutely loved this age gap, contemporary romance with a side of BDSM.

This is the third book in the Sinful Delights series and although this can be read as as a standalone, I definitely recommend reading this in the series order for maximum enjoyment.

This book was dark, twisted and deliciously taboo.

Holden is femme but oh so very fiesty and keeps Marcus on his toes.
The chemistry between them was sweltering and off the charts!!🔥🔥🔥🔥

If you love a dark romance laced with steam and kink, I definitely recommend this one.

My favourite of the series. It ties everything up and leaves me wanting more at the same time.
Holden is everything. Loved the cute little murder twink

I loved reading this I really enjoyed Holdens fashion sense and his almost constant annoying of Marcus I was upset Marcus decided to hurt Holden by not trusting him when they found out about the betrayals and was surprised by who was doing it in the end all around really enjoyed the characters and the book

This series just keeps getting better and better. I didn't want this to end. It was sick, twisted, and sexy as F! Marcus and Holden were awesome characters with a great dynamic. Hoping to see more of them in the future. This story had a great plot and was really well written, thoroughly enjoyed it!

Thoroughly enjoyed this new installment of the Sinful Delights series! Definitely check trigger warnings if you have triggers. I don't, so, this was one sinfully dark and fascinating read. It's twisted, hot, intense, and oh did I mention HOT? Worth a second mention. I haven't read much blood play before and thought it might bother me, but...nope. Holden needs what he needs. Marcus delivers. My only wish was for Marcus to make up more for a certain thing that happened. I wasn't satisfied that he made it up to Holden, or that he wouldn't do it again. I needed maybe a touch more...not groveling, that's not Marcus, but, more of a personal sacrifice to Show he understood his mistake. Without a spoiler I can't reveal why that bothered me so much, but, if you read the book, perhaps you'll understand. There's a lack of balance that wasn't rectified. Still...Odessa's forbidden romances are truly forbidden to the point of salacious, juicy, scandalous goodness, and I'm hooked. HEA, no cheating, recommended.

I didn’t want it to be over! Such a good story and great tie in with Always Oskar and Family Values. Holden and Marcus’s story made me laughed at parts and tugged at my heartstrings.
