Review and excerpt of "Confined" by Jennifer Snyder


Sometimes the things in life that seem to confine us most are often the ones that save us…
To Addison Harmon becoming initiated appeared to hold the answers to her every problem—all except what she would do after, when the tether was finally broken. But when the after Addison imagined isn’t the one unfolding before her, she finds herself tangled even further in a web of secrets, lies, and betrayal.
It’s not until Addison is captured by the last person she ever suspected would betray her that she’s forced to rely on herself for survival.
Questions will be answered. Trust will be misplaced. And hearts will be broken.

(New Adult/Mature Young Adult: Contains sexual situations, language, underage drinking, and violence.)

“I’d invite you in, but I don’t think you should be here,” I said in a hushed tone.
His hands clenched into fists at his sides, and his dark eyebrows drew together. “I don’t think I should be here either.”
“Then why are you?”
“I don’t know.” His face softened as he met my stare again. “I’m finding it hard to stay away from you lately.”
I understood him completely. It was the worst type of obsession, fixation, whatever you wanted to label it, that I had ever felt.
I didn’t respond to his words. Instead, I continued to stare directly into the depths of his eyes. It was the longest and most serious staring contest I’d ever been a part of, because I knew exactly where my eyes would drift the second I blinked—his lips—and I couldn’t let that happen. If I did, then I might not be able to control my hands—or my lips—and that would be a serious problem.
As the silence splayed out between us, I became acutely aware of my heartbeat and the warmth that flooded me once I’d opened the door for him.
“I think I finally understood it all when I saw you at the beach,” he said.
His tongue snaked out and licked his plump lips, causing my eyes to leave his and follow the motion. Even though his tongue had been nowhere near me, it still stroked against every nerve ending in my body as though it had been sliding along my skin. Shifting on my feet, I tore my eyes away from him to glance at the little patch of green grass that made up my backyard behind him instead.
“And?” I prompted in a whisper. “Aren’t you going to explain it to me?”
He leaned against the door frame, which brought him closer to me. I could feel the heat emanating off him and soaking into my pores. My body shivered at the sensation of it, as though it were the drug of choice I had been craving and now it was finally within reach.
“I’m sickened with myself when you’re not around, because you’re all I’m constantly thinking about. It’s taken a lot of willpower to stay away as long as I have, Addison.” He sighed heavily, and his hot breath slid across my face. I understood then what he meant about willpower, because I had to use every ounce of mine to keep from reaching out to him. “And then, when I finally saw you earlier, I was fine. The burning need to be around you was quiet. It’s trying to pull us together, drawing us closer to one another, because that’s what it’s for. The tether is getting stronger for a reason; something is coming. It has to be. Whatever the tether was put in place for is about to happen.”

My Review

 To start I'm going to say this book deserves awards-not one, but many!  I just have to give accolades to Jennifer Snyder for not only "Confined" (the third installment in the A Tethered Novel series), but also "Catalyst" and "Conjure".  Immediately I was drawn into the love triangle that was between Kace, Addison, and Theo. The events that transpired in "Conjure" between Theo and Addison left me reeling for some well needed sparks to fly. And now one book later I am left feeling ecstatic and overly joyous that finally the connection between Theo and Addison can no longer be ignored or denied.  The sparks that have been dying to release between the two have finally came out. Although unsure as to where to proceed from there Kace, Addison, and Theo have more than just relationship troubles to worry about. With unseen danger lurking around the corner time is of the essence.I highly recommend "Confined" for paranormal romance lovers. You won't be disappointed!
