Hello Fellow Book Lovers. Today I’m sharing my thoughts about The Bite that Binds by Suzanne Wright. Book 2 in her vampire paranormal romance series, Deep In Your Veins.

I was lucky enough to meet Suzanne Wright (a new-to-me author) when I went to RARE19 in London! I spent a few minutes chatting with her. She’s lovely. I’m so glad that I finally managed to read one of her books, although it wont be the last! 😉

Last year, I decided that mini-reviews were the way forward for this particular book blogger. This means that I only write full detailed reviews for the books I receive from authors, publishers and PR organiser (ARCs).

Review: The Bite That Binds (Deep in Your Veins Series #2) by Suzanne Wright #2020AudiobookChallenge @suz_wrightMy Rating:
Title: The Bite That Binds by Suzanne Wright
Series: Deep In Your Veins #2
Published by Self-Published on 30 January, 2013

Narrator: Justine Eyre, P. J. Ochlan
Length: 10 hours 49 minutes
No. of Pages: 273

It’s just over a week until Sam will be Binding with Jared, and the only thing she wants is to spend that time relaxing and preparing for the ceremony. Unfortunately, she seems to be asking too much of fate, because suddenly she’s lumbered with a number of distractions that have the potential to postpone, or even cancel, the Binding. There’s a guarded fiancé to crack, a complicated assignment to deal with, Jared’s ex to alienate, and a bunch of snobbish Master Vampires to win over – or offend, whichever. On the upside, things couldn’t possibly be any worse, could they?

Actually, yes they could. Due to a cruel twist of fate, something strange is happening to Sam –something that is changing her in ways she doesn’t like or understand. With the help of Jared and those closest to her, she has to not only handle the threats to the Binding Ceremony, but find a way to fix what has been done to her – and fast.

Warning: This book contains a stubborn and occasionally homicidal female vampire, a powerful and overprotective male vampire who refuses to lose her, and scenes of a sexual, explicit nature.

What did I think about The Bite That Binds?

book cover for Deep in Your Veins 2 - The Bite That Binds by Suzanne Wright

An Amazing Story That Doesn’t Let You Go!

Suzanne Wright is still a relatively new-to-me author and this is only the second book of hers I’ve read but definitely wont be the last. I love her writing style; the pace she set for her story, the characters she creates and the gripping plot-lines.

I love that this book brought out so many emotions; yes, I did growl like a wild woman at times in frustration, I wanted to hide from the violence and cruelty and yes, I did shed a tear or two. However, I also smiled and chuckled out loud at all the lighter moments, humour and well written banter. 😉

I enjoy a story more when the main female character is intelligent, resilient, resourceful, self-reliant and has plenty of gumption. Sam ticked all my boxes and then some. I love her sense of humour, sarkiness and an innate sense of right and wrong. All the characters that Ms Wright has created for this series are complex and multifaceted. This makes both the villains and heroes feel more believable.

Once again, I downloaded the narration by Justine Eyre and P. J. Ochlan and enjoyed the variation that these actors brought to the duel point of view. My only remaining criticism is, that to my English ear, Ochlan’s version of Sam’s London accent not as good as Eyre’s. However I did get used to it as the story swept me away.

The Bite That Binds is a bloody good book. I’ve already downloaded book 3 through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.

Content Warning:

There are scenes of explicit sexual content and graphic violence in this book. Therefore, I’d only recommend it to adults who aren’t offended by scenes of this sort.

I’d recommend The Bite That Binds to readers who love adult paranormal romance stories. Tales with kickass heroines and deserving alphas with story-lines about fighting for what’s right.

Keep reading to find out more about this amazing series and its author.

Deep In Your Veins by Suzanne Wright

This adult paranormal series is written in the same world as Dark In You with some crossover characters.

Our human myths and legends about vampires are sometimes right, sort of. There are actually three breeds of vampires: Sventé, Pagori, and Keja. Each breed has its own strengths and weaknesses – but that’s about to be turned on its head…

About Suzanne Wright

Author - Suzanne Wright

I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t writing something, whether it was stories, poems, or even songs – though I can’t carry a tune. I only have one rule when I’m writing a book which is that it has to have a happy ending. Other than that, pretty much anything goes. I write stories that I would enjoy reading and then I just hope that others will enjoy them too.

I was born and raised in England where I live with my husband (a person who doesn’t judge me for hearing voices in my head – how often do you come across people like that?), and my two demanding children.
