Blog Tour: Revenge Bound by Heidi Joy Tretheway + 5* review + giveaway

 RevengeBound ebook MED

Title: Revenge Bound ~ A Tattoo Thief Novel
Author: Heidi Joy Tretheway
Release Date: August 6, 2014


On the Internet, secrets never die… Violet can’t imagine anything worse than having her very private, very naked photos strewn across the Internet. Until they multiply like a virus. With her name, address, and phone number attached. And her boss finds out. And a stalker finds her. Violet’s refuge is a rock star known for going through groupies faster than guitar picks. Letting Jayce get close enough to protect her exposes her secrets—and her heart—to a man whose celebrity could ruin her. That’s because being a nobody is the one thing that keeps Violet’s photos from making headlines. And it’s the reason she can never fall for a rock star. Secrets spread like wildfire when a celebrity fans the flames. 

REVENGE BOUND is a full-length, standalone novel, and a companion to the Tattoo Thief books. It contains steamy scenes and strong language intended for mature readers.

Andrea's Review
*ARC received in return for an honest review

Although Revenge Bound is a companion book to Tattoo Thief and Tyler & Stella and can be read as a stand alone I recommend you read the books 1 & 2  first...
One, because the characters from the previous books feature in it a bit and two...because this is a damn good series and deserves to be read! 

After this 3rd outing in the TT series,  Heidi  Joy Tretheway is now on my list of authors to look out for. I love the way she can create a story where the characters jump out from the pages and make us feel like we know them. She is a wonderful story teller and can definitely create a heart warming tale of friendship, love and trust wrapped up in tension, anguish and, often, scary situations. Revenge porn and stalking to mention but two.

I must admit, I'd never heard of revenge porn before but, basically, images of people in compromising positions are uploaded, without the subject's knowledge, to tacky websites. Phone numbers, names and addresses of the victim are tagged to the pics and then the perpetrator(s) just sits back and watches the damage unfold, all in the name of revenge. 

This is what happens to the main character in Revenge Bound, Violet Chase.

Violet has had a crappy day, she's been fired from her teaching job due to some compromising pictures, taken by her ex-boyfriend, winding up on some porn sites along with her name, phone number and address. She's bombarded with texts from men who've seen her pictures and now she's being stalked by one of them. 

So far Violet has managed to keep under the radar of the media and keep the secret of her shameful photographs. Then she meets Jayce, a member of Tattoo Thief, ( a VERY sexy member of the band) who is never out of the tabloids, usually pictured with his latest groupie. As their friendship, and feelings, grow so does the fear of being caught on camera with Jayce and the very real threat of being stalked is taken to the next frightening level. 

Jayce likes being in control. He's used to getting his own way and the girls falling at his feet but Violet is different from the others. She's not fake, in any way. Jayce finds, much to his shock, that he's beginning to care for Violet in such a way that she's all he can think about. He will do anything to keep her in his life and safe. Even if that means he has to push his dominant nature to the side. He yearns to control her but not if it means he will lose her.

I just loved the chemistry between Jayce and Violet and when he turned up the heat between them, woah! it was hot!! I wanted to hug Jayce for not giving up on Violet when she tried to push him away and, well, I just wanted to hug him, and squeeeeze him, and lick him. Aaaall over...*sighs*

I was behind Violet all the way in her fight against the sleaze bag who set her up. I wanted to punch him between the eyes and somewhere else where it would hurt even more! I loved her strength and courage to try and get her life back, when there were times she just wanted to lock herself away, curl up and hide til it all went away. Quite a few times I gasped out loud in shock, that's when I know I'm reading a good story when I start shouting and talking back to my kindle.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Revenge Bound and finished it with a big stupid grin on my face, although I did drag my heels to finish it...only because I'm not ready to leave this series yet. But good news! We have another book to come in the shape of Dave's story, which I believe, will be the final one in the series. And I'm sure, as usual, there will be plenty of fireworks, bombshells, suspense and hot sex to keep us hanging on til the very last page! 

All the way through I rated this story a very worthy 4 stars but couldn't get Violet's harrowing experience out of my head and so, on that basis, I added 1 more star.

Revenge Bound is a definite MUST READ...go 1-click today.
