Blog Tour, ARC Review & Giveaway: Spellbound by Sylvia Day


From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day comes a story of the ultimate seduction. . . .

Max Westin. Sex incarnate. She could smell it, feel it with his proximity. Everything about him was a little rough, a little gritty. He was a primitive creature. Just like her.

He held her hand a little too long, his gaze, under thick lashes, clearly stating his intention to have her. To tame her. . . .


Her name, just one word, but spoken with such possession she could almost feel the collar around her neck.

“It’s in your nature,” he murmured. “The desire to be taken.”

In this game of cat and mouse, everything is an illusion, but the passion is as real as it gets. . . .

3.5 star review!

**ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.**

When you hear the name Sylvia Day, you automatically think of New York City, Gideon Cross and the beat damn book series of all time. The Crossfire Series introduced me to the amazing creations that Sylvia publishes and I’ll never turn back. Obviously with such a large readership with the Crossfire SeriesSpellbound would need to compete with Sylvia’s previous works. The story was an exhilarating paranormal romance though it would not be something I would read all the time. This has everything to do with my own taste in book genres and nothing to do with Sylvia’s writing. You can never fault on the creative flow and exceptional language used in all of her novels.

After Victoria loses her “person” in life, she draws on the power she inherited from her deceased love and becomes secluded from the typical culture of her kind. This is when Max Westin walks into her life in order to draw her back to the ways of the Familiar through his dominant nature, attempting to make her submit to a warlock for the first time in her life. The only question is: will he succeed?

The greatest thing to come out of this book is Max. Though he is definitely NOT Gideon Cross, he is everything we all wish for in a book boyfriend. He’s built, possessive and an alpha male. He definitely captivates you with his dominant side. Not only is he persistent in his pursuit for Victoria, but he is confident enough to know he will succeed. I fell in love with him instantly!

Though the story wasn’t my cup of tea, it was thrilling enough to persuade me to keep reading. If you are a fan of paranormal erotic romance, then this is definitely a story that you will love. Though I wasn’t enamoured by this book, I’ll continue to support Sylvia’s writing career because she is my guilty pleasure that I’ll never get over. I can guarantee that a paperback copy of this book will make it onto my bookshelf, alphabetised straight into my Sylvia Day section.
