Book Review - "Bound Souls: Zander and Daphne (Scarred Hearts #2.5)" by Felicia Tatum

If you are a lover of romantic tales and a HEA (Happily Ever After), then I think you will absolutely fall in love with Zander and Daphne. Bounds Souls is Book 2.5 in the Scarred Hearts Series by the very beautiful and talented Felicia Tatum!

(I was given a copy of this book for an honest review)

Book Overview

Zander McKinney’s life has changed drastically during the last few months and he’s coming to terms with his new reality. When the most amazing of changes happens, will he be able to handle his new responsibilities? Will he be able to convince Daphne his feelings are true despite her denial?

Daphne Waterman’s world is in chaos as everything she thought she knew shifts in her new, unexpected but welcomed direction. As she refocuses her priorities and slips into her new role in life, she faces her demons and fights to win her inner battles. Will she be able to cope with her feelings for Zander while adjusting to her new life?

Anxious hearts are tamed and souls are forever bound.

My Take

I really enjoyed Bound Souls. It's a short novella and fast read that was very enjoyable and full of emotion. I did not read the prior two books before reading Bound Souls, as the book can be read as a stand alone. However, I will state that there are several aspects of Zander and Daphne's situation that I believe having read the prior books would have provided enlightenment. This does not deter from the enjoyment of the book though, as I was able to quickly pick up on Zander and Daphne's history and paint the picture for myself. 

The book picks up after Daphne and Zander's one-night-stand has resulted in a pregnancy and the two of them living together. You can tell from the start that Zander, not only wanting to do right by Daphne, is quickly falling head-over-heals with this young woman. His one night stand is becoming his once in a lifetime love. 

Daphne, however, cannot possible believe that Zander can be falling in love with her. He's just a "nice guy" who is trying to "take care of" the mistake he's made with her. Daphne, in her depressed state, wishes she and Zander could be more, but doesn't believe he could ever love someone like her. 

This story definitely had some funny and endearing moments. Some of the funniest were the social situations involving Zander and a baby shower! Through it all, the book explores the emotions of love and respect when two people try to uncover if they can be happy in life with a baby affecting the decisions they must make. 

Overall I give this book:

Felicia's characters are endearing and carry a sense of reality that makes it easy to believe this story could be true. I found myself cheering for Zander and Daphne while waiting for one of them to finally admit they were falling in love with each other. Definitely a must read for a romantic like me!
