Forged by Fate is the first book of the Bound by Hades Series. I really liked it and gave it four stars. I kept on wanting to come back to this story and finish it, but I had a hard time staying on track. At first I felt like I had to make myself read until I finally hit a certain point that had me hooked. Once I got into it, I had to know what was going to happen. Theo is the gatekeeper to Hades. He has waited almost a millennium to meet his mate. Can you imagine saving yourself for that long waiting for THE ONE? Once Theo’s Ahavah mark has appeared, he knows it is time to find his mate and unite as one. Finding her is easy; trying to get her to “come home” is another story.
Sadie is a college student beyond smart for her age. She is graduating from college at the age of 18. Sadie’s mark appears and suddenly her whole world changes. Sadie is also a black belt and has abnormal strength for a human. It isn’t until she talks with Theo about mates and her supernatural background that she realizes how her place in life and what her purpose of what she has accomplished and achieved will come into factor.
I wish as mortals we experienced the attraction & sensation of knowing who your mate is and the connection that Theo & Sadie share. It is a wonderful bond that can never be broken. Without each other, they become weak, but is their connection what can save them and the fate of the gatekeepers? This was a sweet and clean story without too much relationship drama. I really liked Theo but he was a little too nice for me. He didn’t have enough bad boy appeal. I’m hoping Justin is going to do my heart Justin in the next book. Check out this awesome read and get prepared for Justin’s story in Marked by Hades.

Marked by Hades is the second book of Bound by Hades series. This was another four star read for me. Justin is the main character in this book and he is the brother & companion of Theo. He has that bad boy appeal that I am so drawn to. Justin has denied since his existence the idea of having or wanting a mate. He says there is not just one woman for him. Justin’s Ahavah mark appears and he is torn between saying no and finding that one person that he can’t pinpoint who is calling to him.
Yvonne is sent to earth with no memory and a deadly touch, literally. What is the sensation she feels in her neck at that mark that just appeared out of nowhere? Who is the raven haired goddess that she dreams of? Why does he want to help her? Yvonne is a part of Sadie’s past. Will Sadie step up to help Yvonne and Justin or push them apart? Is their bond strong enough to overcome Yvonne’s past to build their future or is Justin truly not a woman man?
Check out this awesome read and I can’t wait to see what Reese Monroe has in store for the continuation of the series. I look forward to reading and sharing.
