Review:Bound Together


Title:Bound Together
Author:Eliza Jane

Seventeen-year-old Zoey needs an escape from some personal drama, like her mom’s depression and taking care of her four younger siblings. She finds the perfect distraction in a frenemies-with-benefits arrangement with irritatingly hot football captain, Matt, during their class trip to Paris. There’s no chance of falling for someone whose only ambition in life is to stay in their hick town and one day take over his parent’s tire store. But far from home and personal responsibilities, his cocky grin and easy attitude start to grow on her as they explore the seductive city of Paris together.

Once they’re back at home, Zoey finds herself texting him for a secret rendezvous whenever she needs an escape. Though she’s been explicitly clear she’s using him for one thing, whenever Matt picks her up, he acts more like it’s a date-date rather than a backseat playdate –making sure she has eaten, or stopping to color with her little sister before they go out. Despite her best efforts at keeping their arrangement physical only, Zoey begins to realize – with fear and disgust – that she’s falling for him. When things fall apart with her mom, letting Matt see her real life takes more courage than she has – but if she’s brave enough to let him, he might be just the one person who can help.

So I have just reread bound together and I'm glad i did.I forgot how much I enjoyed this book. Zoey has it tough from school work to taking care of the house and her younger siblings.Deciding she needs space and to see if her family can survive without here just in case she goes to college she goes abroad to Paris for a class trip.That's were things get interesting starting with Matt as her partner.

The characters were well written and I liked that Matt and Zoey seemed so real.There was no insta-love it was gradual and adorable filled with plenty of snark.I enjoyed the character development a lot and i liked how the character from the main ones o secondary stood out and seem genuine.

The cover is lovely and sums up Zoey &Matt nicely. Occasionally the plot dragged but eventually you were pulled back in to the book.I'd definitely recommend this to someone needing a calm ya romance type book.3/5
