Publisher's Summary

When danger starts to lurk, even the most bitter rivals can become allies....

Elisa: I just wanted an ordinary life, but I had to be born as a daughter of the Don of one of the most powerful families in New York. I went to school to become a nurse, but now my father is giving me away to my family’s greatest enemy in order to seal a truce. John Colombo may have my hand in marriage, so he might even be seen as owning my body, but he’ll never hold my heart.

John: I will do anything for my family, even if it means marrying the daughter of our enemy. Honor, pride, duty...these are words I understand, and love is not one of them. I have one rule - to never lose control - but there is something about this feisty mafia princess that’s making me go off the deep end.

In Bound by Honor, Kelsey Dawson is taking readers on a sexy, intense, and unforgettable journey filled with suspense, sexual tension and passion.

Brace yourself for a sensual and provocative mafia romance that will leave you breathless. Enjoy the ride as the sparks fly between Elisa and John, threatening to scorch both of their worlds.

Elisa and John - Really Good Book!

This book was so good. The time just flew by, almost 13 hours, and I still wanted more. Elisa, daughter of a powerful Don in New York, had to marry John from a rival family. John turned out to be awesome because Elisa was so feisty. There is a betrayer in John's inner circle who ends up kidnapping Elisa. John moved Heaven and earth to get her back. This book has such a sweet ending. Ashlynn Brooks and Jack Fetching did a great job with the narration. At first I thought that Jack narrated too fast because I had to listen again and again to what he was saying, but I got used to his voice. I cannot wait until book 2 is on Audible.

Scorching hot mafia romance.

Two hard-headed souls collide in an explosive chemistry set against an arranged marriage. Elisa and John are combustible but perfect for each other even though their families have hated each other for years and they’re being set up as sacrificial lambs to unite against a common foe.

This audiobook has steamy scenes, betrayal, happiness and tears. I loved the two characters of John and Elisa who are not happy as most would be of the predicament they find themselves in. They both are independent and loyal to their respective families but trust is their main issue but is overcome to a very satisfying HEA.

Can’twait for Dario and Sara’s story.

Wonderful story, great characters.

It is set in a very intriguing and mysterious world. It is great to experience the story of two mafia crime families who need to unite against one common enemy. But the greatest danger might be among them. I love the story and the characters and how much they had changed by the end of it. I loved Elisa and John from the very beginning but by the end they are really incredible characters. Their love of family and honor never changed. And their attraction was so strong that they never had a chance to fight it.

BAD NARRATORS!!

Narration was awful.
The male voice didn’t match the character and the female narrator acted like her parts were a secret (whispered).
Totally ruined the book.
Read this one, skip the audiobook.
I hope the author gets this redone with different narrators.

DNF @ 35%..I just couldn't take anymore!

The h was immature, superficial and silly, while the H was weak, thought with his dick and acted like a teenager. Gawd! Just NO! There went a wasted credit! Do NOT fall for the smoking hot cover, this book is just awful.

Audiobook is really awful

And also - the name of a character changes in the epilogue? This story was all over the place - including the housekeeper going from Mary to Maria in the middle of the book.

The narrators were pretty bad - lots of mispronounced words and also, lots of editing was missed - there are at least 4 instances of a narrator making a mistake, pausing, and then continuing to read that made the final cut.

Wouldn’t recommend this one.

pretty but....

This was pretty good story. I'm not much of a Mafia fan but this one felt light for a Mafia story. From reading about this author, this story was her first book which I thought was good for debut. My thought on the readers. Males voice fits his character and I enjoyed it. However, his reading style was inconsistent and not smooth. After a few hours, He grew on me. On with the female, she is new to me and she was okay reading her parts. That said, her swallowing while reading was kinda distracting and made me cringe. Hence, it's the reason I gave four stars for performance. Other than what I mentioned, I highly recommend if you are a romance reader.

too descriptive

far too much describing of scenery and characters features and not enough dialogue between characters , seemed to take forever to get the actual story started and then it was the end of the book .

The Best Yet!

All of the series has been good, but this is the best yet - plenty of action while always time for plot progression. Can't tell who writes what which is always a good sign of a co-authored book.

I enjoyed the story and you can’t go wrong when Ashlynn Brooks, Jack Fetching narrates the book. The twist and turn in this series keep me wanting more.
