More lists with this book...
The ending was just a big bundle of nope. I'm crying. Wow, I cannot believe that just happened. I'm in book-shock!
This is going to be a short review.
This damn book! It was so intense, the relationship between Taylor and Shy.
I still don't like Taylor, he's sort of an anti-hero in the series, I don't think he's suppose to be the tortured-turn-sweet kind of love interest but I don't know. Taylor is still very much detached to his emotions, he's not human at all -- with the exc ...more
I am torn! I don't know what to think anymore, the ending was like Whaaaaattt!! will someone tell me whats going on? I'm confused and lost..I need answers to all the questions that are going around in my head.
This book starts off where book 1 finished where Eric is at Shyla's apartment.At the end of book 1 I was shocked and like omg everything is so messed up.I never expected things to get much worse but helloo book 2 and welcome to hell!
So many twists, lies, betra ...more
the development of this story also floored me because it got a lot darker and I wondered where she could take this this flawed man and his flawed girlfriend?
Gripping, intense, a sit on th ...more

The only plus for me is that the author is able to keep the intrigue, so even that I did not like the book I' ...more

This second book is loaded with conflict and poor decisions by almost every character, making me uncomfortable, anxious, and raptly glued to every word. I often found myself internally chanting "No, no, nooo." It was like watching a potential collision: you can see it coming, but as an observer, t ...more
Strapped Down had many more steamy scenes. Honestly a few too many. BUT, there were two fave sex scenes!!! The pool and the club!! Holy Batman has lost his pants hot!!!
The plot again makes this story sore but I still wish the romantic connection was deeper. Although, in this seque ...more
I just felt like the plot kind of plummeted and usually when reading, I feel joy and excitement and I can't stop reading but with this book, I found excuses not read it and when I was reading it, I felt like I was just reading to pass the time. I feel that eventually I might come back to this book but at the moment, I'm going to have to leave it. It wasn't horrible so I won't give it a rating, I just got bored.
Taylor is a force like we have never seen.
If you've read the first one...you must get this one asap.
Story is not a cliffhanger but so many unanswered issues.
What's up w/Henry and Izzy? Henry and Kristen?
There was great character development. Book flowed very well.
Buy it..you will love it.....
Nina will do another one......I just know it.
I just knew dammit I just knew Taylor is loony. I ugh ugh... *screaming* what the fuuuck. I am so so so disturbed to read the last book. I do not know if I am ready for that.. I feel like bipolar right now. I need therapy after third book I guess...
This book is that moment. And it’s not always pretty. In fact that moment when you step outside of the all confines is rarely a moment later looked upon for it’s ease or fond memories. It’s often messy, gritty and very, very real. Coated in blood and sweat ...more
This is the second book in the Strapped series and I think that Strapped Down is so much more over the top amazing than Strapped . I think that Author Nina G Jones has hit her self a home run with this book because she has hit this one way out of the park. I can say now I am a huge fan of hers.
As I sat down and started reading this book I was hooked because it left off where the other book ended. This book blow me away from the start because she book took so many twist and turns I never knew wh ...more
IF YOU CAN SAY IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN !!
As if Strapped's cliffhanger wasn't enough this book ends on such a crazy mind blown WTF are you kidding me note that you will be happy that book 3 is already out !! And yes despite all the craziness and confusion and WTF moments I am definitely reading on and assuming I am going to love every twisted minute of it !!
Eric has shown his crazy side but honestly i do not know which one I would be more horrified of !! Taylor is pretty damn ...more
This one was incredibly good! I have to say that I liked it a bit more than book one and I actually LOVED book 1. But this one had so much more. It had a lot of action. And it also had so many twists and turns that I did not see coming. We also get a lot more emotions in this one. I actually got really sad at one point because we lose a character, an important one or at least he was important to me and I did not want to see him go. I was conflicted even in book one as to whether he was a ...more

Book #2 in the Strapped series.
In Strapped Down, the author begins right where Strapped left us hanging, literally. This actually surprised me due to most authors have to do so much re-telling to get the reader caught back up in the series. Luckily this didn't happen here. But yet once again we are left with our jaws open ...more
I think we knew there was a darkness about Taylor Holden in Strapped, but not until this book do we see how deep that darkness really is. Shyla is not exactly broken, but not far from it, and at some points in this book, I believed she was completely destroyed, ...more
If you thought Strapped was a roller coaster, you haven't seen anything yet. Shyla is coming to terms with her intense emotions for Taylor and his ways. She enjoys what they do, but has a hard time accepting that it's ok. She and Taylor both have growing pains with their relationship, but secrets and misunderstanding cause tension between them.
More craziness throughout and revelations that will shock you to the core. If at any time you think you know what's going on and what's going to ...more
"I am in love. Fuck. There is nothing he can do to stop it. He is now one of those hysterical, irrational, pathetic people he once looked down upon."
While secrets are revealed, there are also lies and betrayal. We see a darker side to Taylor, and honestly I have no idea how I fe...more
