The third and final installment in the Rapture Trilogy.

I’m in love with him.
My stalker.
He isn’t perfect. He’s something dark. Something broken.
He’s mine, but someone wants to take him from me.

They tried to kill me.

I bled out onto dirty, cracked pavement, and something changed inside me.
They can't have him.
Not Elaine. Not his mother. Not anyone.
And when they come for him…

Because it's still one of the most beautifully weird stories I've ever read.

** 4-4.25 “messy and broken” STARS **

He leaned in and brushed his lips against mine and I could taste his love. It wasn’t clean or pristine. It was messy and broken.But I was okay with thay. I knew the love I had to offer him wasn’t much better. It was fractured. But it would be enough.


OVERALL: I know the love story of a stripper with plastic boobs and her stalker sounds extremely cheap, but believe me

Our past wasn't perfect. Our future wouldn't be, either. But we would be together, bound by the rapture of our flawed loved.

Bound By Rapture is the conclusion of Julia and Cole's story; and what a fucked up, twisted mess that has been. It's also been completely enrapturing. (Pun intended) These two characters are so screwed up in their own right and yet together...they just make sense. How did THAT happen?

I had watched her for over two years. I had pined for her. Since the moment

Wah, this was an AWESOME, AWESOME (yes, I went x2!) conclusion to this trilogy! It had a stellar cast, amazing story line and pacing, and kept me on my toes!

Julia and Cole tried to avoid it, ignore it. But they couldn’t stop the avalanche of emotion. Love. Stalking. Control. Desire. But it’s not as easy as admitting truths and accepting what the heart wants. There is someone out there, someone that wants to make Julia pay. A mystery person who is ripping everyone she loves away from her... but just who is the real threat?

So there was one thing that just bugged me in this. We first start to get a piece of Cole’s past when he is visiting his mother.

3.5 Me gustó este libro. Fue un buen final para está historia. Me atrapó completamente, a pesar de que los personajes claramente no eran los más cuerdos, pero eso ya lo sabíamos desde un principio.
Me hubiera gustado que el epílogo fuera más largo y contara más cosas.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I cant even process how I feel right now. I love Cole/The Ripper and Julie/Jewel of the Sea like crazy amounts. When I read the first novel, I was like a junkie waiting a for the next "hit" or installment. When I got my next hit, I was left wanting even MORE!! The plot thickened and knew I was screwed waiting for book 3. I may or may not have ma

Well hell....where do I start?
I received the ARC quite early this morning and figured I would download it on my phone and then roll over and go back to sleep....except the app I was using opened up the first page.... and so with one eye open I found myself reading the first paragraph...and then the first chapter....and then I skipped breakfast because it would mean having to put my phone down to make it which I just couldn't do.

I'm used to Ms Martin's unconventional plots that still seem to inc

Finally done in a super messy way.
I figured out the mystery by half of the book. It was too obvious to consider.
Still I hated Vic and how he manipulated Julia.
Cole needs to talk to someone, he has this darkness inside that will never leave.
I loved how much he loved Julia in his own possessive way. And I loved how Julia tried to be strong most of the time
If they could have communicated and listened to each other, it would have been a lot easier.
I wanted a more detailed epilogue, and maybe after

This one was my least favorite.. it's all action, let's find the killer, who is the killer..? And then he surprise twist, which was good however Julia is still a doormat, and Cole is still an asshole. So not much changed..

I hate when these strong heroines turn into whiny little doormats!

And she made him wait three years? Three years for the epilogue? She was a bitch!

Good conclusion

This was an amazing ending to a trilogy I couldn't get enough of. I'm glad that with everything that happened in their past Cole and Julia were able to move past it and find love.

EEEEEEEP. Another great one from Megan Martin. Lucky I get to beta read for her, I love reading her books before they're "officially" out. :)
I wanted more in that epilogue.

Great ending

I couldn't believe the ending. It was a shocker. The entire time I was reading I couldn't figure out who was the bad guy. Loved not being able to know. Made the book more interesting.

Ugh. Just ugh.

This book and the characters are a hot mess and not in a good way. It's ridiculous and simple, just like the characters. And Jewel's "cunt" is still "dripping." I think she may want to seek medical help for that...

I have to start with I KNEW IT! I F*CKING KNEW IT! Ever since I read that text in the previous book, I knew who it was but I kept an open mind just in case more people were in on it. AHHHHHh I still can't wrap my head around it!

Let me say that whatever you think you know, you don't! <--I mean that in the nicest way!!

This book starts off where Clinging to Rapture ends so you know you're in for a wild ride (no pun intended...kind of *wink wink*). Julia is handcuffed to a bed because so

I seriously did not move from my reading spot for two hours as I flew through Bound by Rapture. I just had to know the answers to everything! Who wants Julia dead? And who is the traitor helping them? Why did Cole murder his brother? It picks up three hours after the end of Clinging to Rapture with Cole returning to Julia's apartment. From there it's a lot of trying to stay one step ahead of her would-be-killer, while trying to figure out who it is and probably kill them instead. There's so much ...more

Received ARC from author for an honest review.

This deserves a five star rating because I thoroughly enjoyed the series of the blue-haired stripper who packs a mean punch, and changes the life of a very sexy, very alpha, very rich, gun toting Cole Maddon.

Such great characters in this book, and the author does a good job of building them up where you get to know them well. Elaine is fighting for her independent after she left a very abusive relationship and is trying to move on with her life after

Bound by Rapture by Megan D Martin concludes a well written, interesting storyline that held up perfectly through three books. Thumbs up!!

I was actually hating this book for 90% of it. I knew, I knew who the killer was... so obvious, badly done, boooooo!!!! but Then when you learn who the real killer is I was like holy Moses, WTF, goddamn I didn't see that coming at all.

Well done Ms Martin, well done!

This book starts with Cole trying to protect Julia after the murder of her best friend, Mandi

Megan is flat out amazing with all of her books that I have read. I love them all. I love her writing and I Loved how this book was to end Cole and Julia's story. Trust me when I say you won't know what hit you till the very end. You will think “Oh my gosh, I would have never guessed that.” Because I didn't. The ending was beautiful after all the bad shit happened. Cols is one bad ass alpha male and you will want him all after reading this trilogy. It was raw, gritty, had blood and sex, really r ...more

Five mind blowing stars

*Received an ARC for my honest review and all I have to say is...

Megan D. Martin is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.

The sexual chemistry between Julia and Cole is as hot as always.

Every time I thought I knew what was going on...Nope I was wrong. That plot twist I didn't see coming. Like never saw it up until the moment I was reading it, and I normally can guess what's going to happen.

This was an amazing ending to this trilogy.
