Alexandra Dinapoli has everything she could ever wish for, except what she really wants. Leaving her family behind, she heads for New York City and starts on a journey to make her own way in the word. Whilst there, she bumps into Gabriel Harland, an enigmatic Chief Assistant District Attorney with whom she begins a love affair that is cruelly cut short when someone from her past surfaces in Gabriel’s life. Will their relationship be worth fighting for or will the truth tear them apart?
Join Alexandra on her journey as she discovers the tenderness of new love, the sorrow of losing someone close, the pulse racing suspense of running from the past, the anger of not being in control and the admission that some sacrifices have to be made for the sake of others. Ties That Bind is a story of love and life, light and shade, a story told from both sides.
I was given this book for an honest review. It is Elaine’s first book and I have to say she needs to write more. I loved the story I felt it flowed well throughout. I loved the two main characters Alex and Gabriel, they both seemed liked real people and I loved reading about their life. There are erotic scenes between them in this book but don’t be alarmed as Elaine has written it well and some of them leave me a tad breathless. Wow!! is all I can say. I really enjoyed the fact Alex was into her horse riding and setting up her own business as I love horses and horse riding and one day I would love to set my own business up, so I was incredibly happy when this happened to Alex. Even though this is quite a large book I couldn’t put it down and managed to read it in 2 days. I am really looking forward to Elaine’s next book to see what happens with Alex and Gabriel, I think they will take an interesting journey but I will just have to wait and see.
