The first book of the #1 bestselling Thalia Series from USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Bene, acclaimed as "dark, intense, and emotionally harrowing..." ★★★★★
"I'll break you down. It may take time, but I will."
"And if I don't break?"
Taken from work one night, Thalia is thrust into the violent, controlling world of a man she thought had been the security guard for her building, but she quickly learns that this was only a cover to get to her, to take her. As her old life is erased, the guard pushes Thalia to recognize the darker sides of herself, while Thalia endeavors to hold on to who she is.
Trapped alone with her abductor, can Thalia fight to retain her sense of self, or will his small glimpses of kindness cause her to finally submit to him?
'Security Binds Her' is a dark, brutal journey that leaves readers breathless and waiting to turn the page to find out if Thalia will break, or be lost forever to the darkness around her.
Must read for fans of dark romance, highly recommended!
First book in what ended up being my all time favorite series from Ms. Bene.
It had a bit slow and predictable start, but that all changed as the story picked up and characters started to become more fleshed out. I found Thalia a bit foolish at times but still feisty and strong female character. I especially liked writing and how author managed to put emphasis on psychological aspects of what Thalia goes through.
In the end of this first part, I even managed to feel bad for Marcus. He put Thalia through hell but still ended up caring for her in his own way.
James is deliciously intriguing and will have you grabbing the next part of this series right away!
For all fans of dark who don’t mind non-con and dub-con books I highly recommend this series!
As I start my review, I will not tell you the story. Why you ask, it’s because I want you to read it like I did. By only knowing that it is an excellent book and series. I cannot wait to finish the series. Jennifer did an excellent job in writing this book. Enjoy.
Enthralling dark erotic romance thriller
This is a hardcore, dark bdsm series not for the faint of heart. There's a HFN in this first book but it is full of triggers so be forewarned. This sex is raging hot and the characters are deep and well written. The storyline is compelling and you just can't it it down. It leaves a hell of a book hangover, but the whole series is available so you can belly on up to the second one right away. Thalia stays with you as a character and I find myself coming back to re-read the entire series over and over again.
