Wow! I am so invested in this story that I just read straight through till I finished ... with a cliffhanger ending

The author writes with such an easy style and has an amazing story to tell. My emotions were high, low, worried, smiling at little victories and delighted as Tori's story progresses. I love the way in which multiple stories are being intertwined, so that the reader dare not make assumptions, as they will be shattered, I am sure.

If you haven't yet read Captive, then please read it

WOW Samantha this book was amazing!!! I've read the first on and loved it, but this one was hands down my favorite. I love Tori and she is my favorite female character!! I recommend this series it fast paced and amazing. Kept me on the edge of my seat!!
*I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads*

WOW. So Captive (Book 1) was really just Tori's back-story to bring us to the present. Bound picks up right where we ended.
AND what a ride it was! It has action, emotion, romance...and she FINALLY starts to learn who she is (not based on how she's been used). Tori becomes a person, and we get to watch her journey :)
The story ends on a cliff-hanger (SERIOUS cliff-hanger) and I just need to know what's going on.

Once again I find myself trying to turn past the last page! This second story was every bit as good as the first, but without being quite as dark. I didn't want it to end! Tori is moving on to the next stage of her life and journey as she begins the process towards emancipation. Will she be able to cope with her past? Who can she trust? Will she ever be able to fully move on and start anew? Plus many, many more questions, as the author still hasn't laid all the cards out on the table yet. I ...more

This series must be read in order. The first book is Captive: Book 1 - Formerly Life of Recovery (A New Life). This is the second book. The third book is Entwined: Book 3 of A New Life Series.

Arriving in LA is daunting for Tori as she is leaving behind the only real friends she has ever made. She has been abused and used by everyone but them all her life and now she is being forced into a situation she does not know how to deal with at all without the only two people she has ever trusted in the

After reading and fully giving 5 stars to Samantha Jacobey for her book 1, I was thinking, is this the book that will let it down? Sometimes I find authors write book one, book 2, book 2.05 etc, and it gets rather tedious for me. OK I'm not easily pleased!

I read a lot of books I guess, so far this year I have read 145 books, so I guess I'm getting choosey.

Boy was I in for a shock! This book was just as good at the first one.

Tori is now trying to start a new life.

After reading book 1, I

WOW!!! Even better than the first one!
Samantha Jacobey has written another winner. This fantastic sequel picks up right where book one left off. I loved book one and was really looking forward to reading book two. Ms. Jacobey didn’t disappoint me at all, quite the opposite. This book exceeded all of my expectations and left me more than ready for the next installment. If you have already read and enjoyed book one, then trust me this one is even better. You can just stop reading this review and

In this book Tori finds herself being sent to a halfway house in LA of all places. She has severe panic issues on her very first plane ride. Many things fall into place for Tori while she is in LA. She has a job at a Guitar/Music shop which she is really enjoying and she even takes a leap and begins wearing short sleeve shirts. However there is a new

Look for the similarities instead of the differences...
Choosing to read this series was the best accident ever. I'm now a slave to my kindle, ignoring my family and responsibilities, eyes glued to the pages. Tori is one bada$$ chick. Since she's never had anything, she's never had anything to lose. Her life up until now has only been about survival. After losing her only two friends and being forced to move to LA to stay in a half-way house, she's not happy. She hates meeting people, she hates

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

Bound is book 2 in Samantha Jacobey's New Life series which will have 7 books in total. The books must be read in order as it is a continuation of Tori's story.

Book 2 takes off from where book 1 left off and we go with Tori to LA as she tries to live a "normal life". Less of this book is spent telling tales of the past although we are taken there several times.

This book was not quite as gripping as the first and at times I

Page turner

I really enjoyed this author's style of writing. The flow was really good and the storyline is unique, definitely one I haven't seen before which is saying something considering I have 1000+ in my Kindle library. The sex is brutal and the violence disturbing so be prepared. This is only the second of what will be 7 so if you don't like cliffhangers, I suggest you wait. I read the first three in quick succession and now have to wait until June to see what happens next--my only

Book two of A New Life, love the story.
The continuation of Tori's adventure.
The second book is amazing, it's better than book 1.

New characters were introduced.
All of them have unique qualities that made the story more interesting.
The story, it's much more interesting and better.
I love how the story went.
The way the story ended is also good..
I loved it!

I finished this book last night and had to go on to book 3 straight away, i really don't know how Samantha does it but my god she does it really well. She has a real talent for pulling you into the story and making you believe you are Tori and you can feel everything she is going through. It was a serious OMG when i had finished this book :)

An epic ride

I wasn't sure how I felt about the first book, Captive, but I was intrigued by Tori and needed to.see if she is able to make it through. This book really sucks you in to her story and how it is all going to work out for her. I for one am rooting for her.

Bound is book two from A New Life Series. I have been fortunate as to be able to read all three books that have been published so far without a break in between! Now I am just a short time away from being able to read book 4, then the wait will be on for the next book. I love reading good books in a series, you do not have to say goodbye to your new book friends. You get to stay with them and follow in the adventure.

In Bound we follow Tori to LA where she will be in a half way house for six

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here it is. Tori is headed to LA to maybe get help with fitting into society. She really doesn't know how to act around others that do not want to use her. She misses Eli and Debra and when she calls the F.B.I. office in Chicago, they are no longer assigned to the office. So she feels lost all over again. At the halfway house, there is one other girl there and she is wary of being friends.Things are starting to look up ...more

These books are well written, addictive, quick reads and I will definitely be checking more of Samantha Jacobey's work.

This series must be read in order so if you haven't read Captive 1st you may want to so you can fully get into this series.

Bound has a lot more action in it and more character details to where you want to beat some of them up if you could. Storyline continues to suck you in to where you want to keep going into the present.

You best hope you already bought book three in the series

Following on from Captive, this book carries on with the tale of Tori. Thank God this book isn't quite as sad as the previous one!

Tori is beginning her new life away from the horror of the Dragons. She's learning how to live without the constant threat of rape and violence over her head. She's learning how to trust people and that some people want to be her friend, and that's ok.

Her story is told with a mix of the present and flashbacks. The flashbacks are as graphic and brutal and sickening as

If you have not read book 1 Captive yet then stop and please read it first or else you will be completely lost. When Captive ends it leaves you dangling off a damn cliff!! I kept trying to turn the page but was having no such luck. Bound picks up right where it leaves off. This book is just as great as book 1 but I don't think it is as dark.

Omg...I am loving this series soo much. I was hoping to see more of Eli, but hopefully he will make his reappearance in the next book. I love how Tori is on her own and I like to see her building relationships and growing as a character. I love Tori as a character. She is strong, sassy, and determined. I can't wait to see what is in store for her next and see if she can escape the world she was threw into as a child.

I really enjoyed this book. Tori is quite a gritty character and I liked getting to know her better. I felt sorry for her when she got involved with Enrique. I felt like she was rushing in head first and didn't take time to really get to know him. I'm looking forward to the next installment of this series!

Finished Captive yesterday and had to get right into Bound. I'm so sucked in. This story just keeps getting better. When you realize your at the end of the book, you say nooooo and have to start right into the next book. Great job Ms Jacobey for turning me into a Tori addict. I may never get my work done. I can't wait to see how her story unfolds.
