Bound by Steel, Connie Lafortune

Literature & Fiction, Thriller & Psychological Thriller

Lyra Harper

I was driving home to spend the holidays with my family.
But I lost control of my vehicle on an icy mountain road.
I slammed into a tree on the edge of Lake Lucerne.
I barely remember writing my name on the frosted windowpane.
The darkness had swallowed me whole.
I spiraled toward oblivion.
When I awoke from the gloom
I found myself in an old log cabin
With the devil’s eyes piercing fiercely into mine.

Ryker Steel

Up until four days ago, my life was tedious and tiresome.
Until, I rescued a dainty girl with golden hair and hazel eyes.
She looks just like the one I’m trying to forget.
Now my life has turned upside down and inside out.
You see, I inadvertently revealed my true identity.
Now, she can never leave.
We will live in hell, until we take our last breaths, together.
Lyra was the one who insisted on playing the game.
But I have a gut feeling, I will be the one to lose…

Bound by Steel is a sensational novel written by the equally superb author Connie Lafortune and is a book that is the definition of a perfect romantic suspense read. I admit that I was hooked on this book before I even started to read it; the description of the book managed to intrigue me straight away and ever since reading it I knew I had to get lost in the story of Bound by Steel. Bound by Steel is an incredible novel that charmed, shocked and thrilled me with its multiple themes and plot avenues and already I would implore you lovely readers to have a read of this book! It has to be one of the best mystery novels of the year with a strong unique romance theme so do not miss out on the magnificent book!

Bound by Steel is an exceptional book that will introduce the reader to the protagonist of the novel, Lyra Harper, a young, beautiful, golden-haired woman who is on her way to spend the holidays with her family, well, that is if she can get there first! The journey is dangerous, and Lyra experiences just how dangerous it is when she loses control of her car, and she crashes on a mountain road covered in ice.

The reader at the point will be introduced to the male protagonist of the novel, Ryker Steel, a mysterious man who will evoke a lot of questions in the readers of the novel. Ryker lives off the grid ever since the death of his wife which has turned his world upside down. Ryker now lives by himself with only his dog Cody as a companion. One day, while out Ryker’s dog alerts Ryker about a car which has crashed and of course this car is Lyra Harper’s car. Ryker helps save Lyra, but when he does, he is shocked that she looks exactly like his wife who passed away. What follows is a shocking story full of many twists and turns galore that should not be missed!

The story of Bound by Steel is a profoundly entertaining one with many profound but also passionate themes laced throughout the book. I admit that I was guilty of assuming from the description that Bound by Steel might be a cliché mystery fiction story but when I started to read it I knew full well that this book was not that kind of read. Instead, Bound by Steel is a captivating novel full of powerful themes which are all excellently explored and weaved well together by the phenomenal author Connie Lafortune who is an incredibly well-accomplished author.

Connie Lafortune is an incredible author who has managed to transfix and entertain me with her beautiful literature. I am impressed by the amount of depth Lafortune has managed to lace throughout her book; Lafortune ensures throughout her book that her readers are entertained and thrilled from beginning to end, and Lafortune does this by weaving twists and turns throughout her book which yes, are incredibly entertaining! As well as this Lafortune flawlessly weaves brilliant characterization and development of her characters that will keep the readers turning the pages from beginning to end.

Connie Lafortune is an exceptional author for many reasons, but one of the primary attributes I love about her writing is the characterization of the characters the reader comes across in the book; specifically Ryker. Usually, with romantic suspense novels the reader is only captivated by the female, however, I was fascinated by Ryker and wanted to know more about him as he is a mysterious character. The reader, although they will be shocked by some of his actions, won’t be able to resist but be pulled in by him and desperately want to know more about him and this is all thanks to the phenomenal characterization courtesy of the excellent author Connie Lafortune.

Overall Bound by Steel is an extraordinary piece of romantic suspense/mystery and suspense fiction that will entertain and thrill readers from beginning to end so I, of course, have to award the book five stars! It would be criminal not to. So please book lovers, have a read of the excellent book and get lost in a gripping, captivating story… you will not regret it!
