Strong ties aren't easily broken...

First loves have the ability to fill us with hope and then shatter us when they end. Some people can pick up the pieces and move on. Others simply learn how to exist as a fragment of the person that they used to be.

Shane “Mack” MacAllister is one of the ones simply existing. His wife Ella died at a young age, leaving him alone and broken.

I am not quitting this book because of the writing quality but because I am just not a fan of some of the tropes in this book - mainly because both leads are too screwed up for me (I can handle one but both of them is too much), I am not a fan of their completely sex based relationship (I know, I am sure this changes eventually but it just leaves me cold), both of the leads are kinda slutty and the biggest issue - the hero is way too hung up on his deceased wife. I just wasn't enjoying it so I d ...more

Bound In Blue by Jessica Ingro can be simply stated as DELICIOUSLY SEXY and SUSPENSEFUL!! If you thought, Jessica couldn’t turn up the heat in this book think again because Jess brought the house down...it was blazing inferno HOT!! I practically inhaled Bound In Blue. Who needs sleep when it comes to Jacob and my newest obsession Mack? How can you put down a book when you have a hot as sin alpha male cop who has a

The first thing that came to mind when I was only a couple of chapters in is that Jessica Ingro ("Ingro") is in a league of her own. Boy, can she write. I just finished reading the novel, and I'm still in awe of Ingro's talent of writing an absolutely beautiful story full of emotion, depth, and heart. She knows what her readers want and she delivers without fail. There's drama, intrigue, and plenty of romance. Like her other novels, "Bound in Blue" is off-the-charts fucking hot!

Bound in Blue is, by far, my favorite in the Love Square series! Don't get me wrong though, this is absolutely a stand alone. If you've followed the series, you'll love seeing Jacob and Kara again, but for those that are just joining, you will not be lost at all.

This book is about Shane "Mack" MacAllistar, a Detective and partner of Jacob Matthews, our MC from books 1 and 2, and Megan Huntley, an Emergency Room physician. They both have demons that they can't get rid of - Mack lost his wife from

Not to beat a dead horse here, but this read was SMOKIN hot.

I hadn't read the first two books in this series before I read this one (not to get off track, but I went back and read book 1 , hated it, but that's a whole different ball game...or should I say review).

I loved Mack and Megan. Mack was a total Alpha. Even more so in the bedroom. The scenes between these two....out of this world hot. IMO, there was just enough hotness in this book. There was a lot, but it was so well written you didn't

I thought I was hooked on Jacob Matthews because boy, does that man make you pant and lick your lips, but now… Welp! My mouth was so ajar by dirty Shane “Mack” MacAllister that all I could do was drool.

4.5 SMOLDERING HOT & VERY KINKY Stars!!!

"Are we talking whips and chains? Or handcuffs and spanking?"

Well helloo Mr. Hot ass Detective AKA Mack!! He can melt the panties straight off of your body with one glance and a small seductive smirk. I love the Love Square series and this one didn't disappoint!! It has a LOT of sex...very kinky sex...which I loove. I think by the end it maybe had one too many sex scenes but that's just me being selfish bc I really really loved Mack and Megan's banter

Sex brought them together but Mack's heart belonged to his dead wife. There may be words of ILY, but even at 87% Mack was still carrying a torch. Sigh.

WOW! Bound In Blue starts with a bang…figuratively and literally. I love, love, loved every page. And this is, by far my favorite in the Love Square Series. I have a book hang over like you wouldn't believe. I’m not in the least embarrassed to say that even after that, I read it again while still knowing what was coming.

WOW! I thought Love Square was hot, but Bound in Blue is so much more! It is full of hot, kinky, smutty sex, but also with an emotional and healing story line that grabs you from the very beginning. I will confess I have only read Love Square #1, but regardless this can definitely be read as a standalone. If you love erotic, kinky sex this is definitely the book for you… yummy!

Review for Bound in Blue by Jessica Ingro

Holy mother of all that is smut! Jessica Ingro freaking knocked this one out of the park, Bound in Blue is one of the most deliciously erotic and emotional books I’ve read this year. I’ve loved everything this author has put out, but this one is by far my favorite. She’s perfectly meshed wrenching emotion out of you until you’re raw with sex scenes that will leave your panties soaked. A beautiful edition to her Love Square Series.

BOUND IN BLUE by Jessica Ingro took me on a drama filled, sexy, intense ride. Never have I related so much to one character, then I did with Megan Huntley, the amazing female lead. The loss, the guilt that Megan feels with losing her twin sister has become a part of her, something horrible and gut wrenching she lives with every single day. It’s to where she really isn’t living at all, she is just going through the motions, day in and day out, filling her daily schedule with work and

Two broken people. Megan and Mack. With commitment issues. If you’ve read the other books in the Love Square series, you’ll remember meeting them. If not, no worries as the author does a wonderful job at setting up the story that this can be read as a standalone. Bound In Blue basically hooks you within the first word of the first page to the very last word of the last page. And that epilogue? I might (I DID!) have read it several times. Her wo

When the first line of a book reads "I love cocks." I immediately knew this was going to be a good one! Yup, you betcha!



Ok let's just start with how this book is... Holy wet panties... The sexual tension is intense, and their encounters were amazingly written.

"He just kept torturing me with each delicious lick, suck and bite."

There is nothing vanilla about these two when it comes to the bedroom, or storage room, or at the table in a restaurant. Megan loves sex, and she

Oh wow! Where do I even begin? Jessica Ingro has done it again and this is her best one yet! Bound in Blue is book #3 in the Love Square series, however you can read it as a standalone and you will enjoy it just the same. (But trust me when I say the series is amazing as a whole!) It’s a love story filled with just the right amount of emotion, humor, angst and hotness to make it an incredible read.

Jessica Ingro has truly done it again with Bound In Blue, which is the third title of the Love Square series. Is it ok that I have zero recollection of Shane”Mack” or Megan from the previous two titles of the series. Either way it didn’t take anything away from my enjoyment.

Bound In Blue is full of emotion from two broken people, both scarred by events from their past. At times I have to admit that all of the broken-nes between these two was a bit much and I couldn’t wait for them to pull it to

Megan loves sex. Anyway she can get it. She doesn't do relationships. After her twin sisters murder which she feels reasonable for, sex is all she is after. After a quickie in the closet with Mack a police officer Megan walked out and continued on with her day. She had no intentions of every calling him. Months later in the emergency room where she worked as a Doctor she runs into Mack again. She is feeling those butterflies in her stomach when she sees him but after time they should go away.

I've been in love with this series ever since I read Love Square. With each new book, I remember why. And I have to say, I think Bound In Blue is my favorite.
We start off with a literal bang..in a supply closet. Shane 'Mack' MacAllister is Jacob Matthews' partner and Megan Huntley's latest fling. I guess you can't really call it a one night stand if it happened while they're both on the clock and at the hospital. What was supposed to only be a one time thing eventually turned in

Shane MacAllister is a ride hard and put 'em away dirty kind of guy. Mack, as he's known, is looking for a good time and a good time only. His past is still present and there is only room for one. Enter Megan. If there was ever a female to match Mack's sexual appetite and need for space, Megan is it. Just looking for a good time, Megan makes sure Mack knows he was a once-in-the-supply-closet fling. When Fate mingles their futures professionally, can either remain hands off? Or will the wa

I fell in love with this author after reading Love Square and have adored every novel since her debut. Bound in Blue lived up to my impossible expectations, putting this story at the top of my must read for 2014 list.

I have been a huge Jessica Ingro fan since the first page of Love Square. She writes amazing characters that the reader fall immediately fall in love with. We first saw Mack when we were reading all about Jacob finding His Ever After but we never knew his whole story.

I loved the banter between Mack and Megan (they are absolutely one of my favorite couples), and to be honest, I felt like it only intensified their undeniable attraction to one another. Now the sex scenes *fan self* are not for the faint of heart. They are H-O-T! But this story is so much more than a no strings attached, sexual relationshi

Both Mack and Megan were introduced in His Ever After, but this could be read as a standalone book. Megan is caring and compassionate doctor who spends all of her time working and volunteering. Neither Mack nor Megan are looking for a serious, committed relationship but they experience an immediate connection.
