Bound by Brenda Rothert
College senior Kate Camden has learned to adapt - to her last year of school, to the promise of motherhood, to the fact that she’s doing it all alone. But just when she’s learned to adjust, heartache threatens to break her apart.
Pro hockey player Jason “Ryke” Ryker has it all: adoring fans, a promising career, and a beautiful wife. But when his seemingly perfect life is shaken by tragedy, he’s left questioning whether having it all is ever more than an illusion.
When circumstance brings Kate and Ryke together, they discover they don’t have to hurt alone. Bound by a grief that haunts them both, they must rely on one another to survive heartbreak. But that grief is more powerful than they realize, and the tie that binds them together may ultimately tear them apart...

Angie J's Review:
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
OMG!! I. AM. A. MESS!! This book was a heart wrenching, tear jerker of epic proportions!! I abso loooove books like this and am mad at myself for not reading it the DAY I received it....SMH.
This book is about 2 broken souls. Ryke who lost his wife and Kate who lost a child at 18 weeks. Both have to deal with the loss and grief that comes with these ragic and unsuspecting deaths. Ryke is over his wife's loss and moving on when he spies Kate at the grief meeting he attends. He is instantly drawn to her and her to him. They strike a conversation and he offers her a job. The job soon becomes a friendship and then a friendship with more......
I loved how patient Ryke is. He sees Kate and is willing to take it however slow she is ok with. He knows she is very frightened with how she feels about him and their chemistry. She is hiding behind her grief and he is willing to wait until she is 100% invested in a "them". I loved their whole dynamic from casual friends to close friends to a couple.
I abso loved this story line and the anxiety that I felt through the entire story. Theses is a great love story but one that takes a long time to unfold. Trust me the journey is worth the wait!!
