THE BONDS WE BREAK
By Becca Steele
Release Date: AUG. 27
Fear. Desire. Redemption.
When I was taken…it changed me.
Once, I was the life of the party.
I told myself that I was okay. I almost believed it, until the day I was forced to face my past and my nightmare came to life.
Now the Four are the only ones I can turn to, and Cassius Drummond has made it his personal mission to help me out.
No matter how much I tell myself that he’s off-limits, the more time we spend together, the more I want him.
Bound by my past, I know I’m no good for him, and I’m nothing more than a convenient distraction while we’re stuck with each other.
It’s going to end in heartbreak.
But every time he smiles at me, I find myself falling a little bit more.
The Bonds We Break is a standalone mature new adult romance, but is best enjoyed after the previous four books in the series.

Our favorite Four are back and this time it’s all about Cassius and Jessa. Thankfully we still get plenty of all our other favs in this book. I love Cass and have been waiting for his story. I knew there was something special about the ladies man and his signature sexy smirk. And we all remember Jessa DeWitt…the girl you couldn’t help but love to hate. I will admit I was a bit skeptical when I found out Jessa would be the heroine. But somehow the author made it all work.
“I thought I was untouchable, but I was wrong. How easily it all came crashing down.”
Jessa used to be the queen bee of Alstone college. The token mean girl who’d stab you in the front just so she could see the look on your face. We all remember how much of a super bitch she was to Winter when Caiden chose her. I mean, in all fairness, he did use Jessa too. But the Jessa we knew before, the one I loathed, was not the same Jessa we see in this book. Severe trauma reshapes a person and getting kidnapped did that to Jessa. She is just a shell of the person she once was. All of the popularity and everything that came along with it doesn’t matter to her now. She sees things differently and is trying her best to tell herself she is okay. That all changes when the monster from her nightmares becomes an unwelcome reality. She’s scared and automatically turns to the one person she knows can help her, Cassius Drummond.
“Life was good, and I was happy. I was the master of my own fucking destiny. Everything was as it should be. Until it wasn’t.”
Cass and Jessa have a history…a hot and steamy one. One that goes back before Jessa set her sites on Caiden. The reason Jessa was taken is woven around and intertwined with the four so it makes sense she would turn to them. Cass is right there for her. In a way, he feels responsible for her, and I love how protective he is. We see a different side of him in this book too. Always the joker and player…he’s different with Jessa. You could tell something was there between them right away even if there are no strings attached. I also love how even though Jessa was scared, she was still strong. She didn’t let what happened completely break her. The broken parts she willingly let Cass help heal. I really liked how their relationship developed and although the others weren’t too keen on her being there in the beginning, she slowly became part of the group. The friendships and bonds in this series are one of my favorite things about it.
“I wanted more of her. To consume her. Like I said. Completely and utterly fucked.”
This book didn’t have as much drama and suspense as the previous books. It was more centered around Jessa and Cass and how they really saw each other and grew together. There were a lot of super steamy parts and just random quick spots of suspense and drama tossed in the mix. Two people who I never thought would end up together, but it just worked. I love Cass. I wouldn’t say I love Jessa…but I do like her. I really enjoyed this book, but it’s not my favorite of the series so far. It was a little slower paced than the others. I am really, REALLY looking forward to Zayde’s book.
“What did I say? All the best love stories start with an epic blowjob. Mine did.”
