Beth Flynn is back with a Nine Minutes spin-off novel about Mimi and Christian Bear!! Check out my review and get clicking!!
My family has secrets. I’m always the good girl, doing what’s necessary to keep my loved ones safe. I’ve kept the darkest secrets from everyone I know. As painful as it is to hold them all inside where they live and gnaw away at me, that’s where they must stay.
I haven’t seen my closest childhood friend, Christian Bear, since I was a teenager—he hasn’t changed a bit. He’s still temperamental and plays by his own rules with the law following two steps behind him.
Christian remembers me. But he doesn’t know the first thing about me anymore. I should’ve shared my feelings with him the day before I moved away with my family, promising him I’d stay in touch. It broke my heart when he didn’t keep his end of the bargain. As a consequence, we haven’t spoken in years. Even though Christian and I have always had undeniable chemistry, I won’t let him shatter my heart a second time.
Christian has shown up in my life again with secrets of his own, and demanding answers. That doesn’t mean I’m willing to give them. He’ll know my secrets when I’m ready.
Our secrets, the risks we’re taking, and the danger he imposes make it impossible to know what our future holds.
Either our tethered souls will bind back together, or our secrets will separate us forever.
The Nine Minutes series by Beth Flynn is one of my absolute favourites so I love any and every chance I get to revisit these characters. We first got to do it with The Iron Tiara (Anthony Bears story) and now we get to do it with Tethered Souls – the story of Mimi (Grizz’s daughter) and Christian (Anthony’s son). Like all of Beth’s books, this was one that gripped me and had me rushing to get to the end.
I absolutely love Christian! His love for Mimi since they were children has been apparent throughout the entire series, and I was so happy they finally got their chance at a HEA. Christian is not a guy you would want to get on the wrong side of, but when it comes to Mimi he’s a big teddy bear!! Mimi has also always been a great character for me – she’s tough and doesn’t let people walk all over her, but she’s also got a big heart and it was great to see both characters grow in this book.
There were a few surprises throughout Tethered Bonds – in fact one part shocked me so much I gasped and shouted “no way!!” Haha! I’m definitely interested to see where all these characters lives take them in the future, and I’m fairly confident with the way things were heading that we will be getting a Slade book soon, so hopefully we will get more then!
Oh, and I love, love LOVED seeing Grizz and Ginny again. Grizz owns a huge part of my heart and seeing him at this stage in his life is just perfection, and made me want to do an instant series re-read! *dreamy sigh* Grab your copy of Tethered Souls, and if you’re not up to date on the series yet, what are you waiting for??
