Review: TIED by Carian Cole

I am done with life I swear to God this book obliterated me!!!

Holly’s childhood was stolen by a monster and she had almost given up hope when a prince came along and saved her. So what if her prince has scars, tattoos, a surly attitude and bucket load of issues. He’s still the one who saved her, who makes her heart race, who gives her shivers of the best kind. Trying to fit into normal routine on top of dealing with the haunting memories isn’t going to be easy for Holly but she is determined. She also has her reluctant Prince to save her should she ever fall again.

Tyler is nobody’s prince. He is an outcast with scars that mar his face and heart. The wrongs he has done in his life are too huge for forgiveness so the only option he has is to stay the hell away from everyone until Holly. He can’t seem to stay away from her yet he is scared to let her close to him.

Their pain ties them in ways even they don’t know. Can two people who are broken beyond comprehension find solace in each other?

I am going out of my mind thinking about how crazy brilliant this story was. I feel blown away not only by the premise but also how real and raw the characters of Tyler and Holly were. They are such brave, pure and sweet souls that you can’t help but fall in love.

I admit I got angry at parts when Holly’s parents were horribly inadequate or when she would have an episode regarding her abuse. It made me cry and want to punch walls. But I believe that was the whole enriching experience with this book.

One needed to feel all that in order to realise that no one is too broken as to never find love. No matter what happened you deserve to love and be loved. And God I can’t thank Carian Cole enough for writing this story and taking up such bold issues.

I ADORE this story and just want to hug Tyler and Holly. Also, it would really help me if they could make some beautiful babies.

5 Stars!

Synopsis:
He was the myth and the legend of our small town. But no one knew the truth… except me.

Me
My childhood was stolen by a monster. I’ve forgotten what love feels like. What happiness feels like. What hope feels like. I am numb.

Him
He’s possibly as damaged as I am. Maybe even more. Scarred just as much on the inside as the outside. Just like me. He doesn’t speak. He doesn’t smile. He hides in the woods like an animal.  I should be scared of him. But I’m not. He’s the only one that has ever made me feel. And I want to make him feel, too. everything…
