Review: Blue Persuasion (Bound by Your Love #3) by Blakely Bennett

Judy, dubbed Blue by her friends, is a voluptuous thirty-one year old woman longing for a love of her own. Even more frustrating than her dissatisfaction with her work and the unwanted attention her body garners is always coming in second with the opposite sex. 

Bond, her best friend and lover, helps Blue stay sane and sexually satisfied, but she knows her place. Their secret relationship leaves Blue hungry to have a man she can call her own.

When she finally succumbs to Cat’s artful needle for her first tattoo, she crosses paths with Tate. The towering, tattooed, motorcycle riding, American Indian fires off all her warnings signs, but she finds herself drawn to him against her own self-preservation. 

Thankfully, Blue’s close-knit group of friends help to keep her grounded, as does the women’s group she attends weekly, but she still finds herself wanting and needing more.

Will Blue ever find the love she needs and deserves or will she forever come in second? Read her sexy story of friendship and love to find out.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

A Dragonfly symbolizes transformation, adaptability while the cherry blossom symbolizes the beauty and the fragility of life…both represents my existence! Blue

This is the third book in Ms. Bennett’s Bound by Your Love series.  It is the story of Blue and her search for where she belongs and the one she belongs there with!  Characters from previous books play an important role in this latest saga.  The author shows the progression of relationships in this tight group of friends and their growth within their individual stories.  Blue and Tate’s story will touch your heart as the two struggles towards the redemptive power of healing.

The past haunts Judy and continues to invade her life.  Her mother’s many boyfriends, her father’s betrayal and her brother’s treachery have left her feeling unloved and unworthy of love. When you add in the fact that she is always playing second fiddle to Bond and his relationship with Jacqs, it is hard to fell self-worth.  Blue feels like she is his dirty little secret within their close knit group.  She decides to get a tattoo to show the transition she is going through and while there meets a sexy, hot male that makes her lady parts stand up and take notice.  Tate is everything she wants and at the same time everything she needs to avoid, especially when he lets her know that all he can give her is sex.  What’s a girl to do?  Does she break it off with Bond and take what Tate is offering?

Tate is instantly attracted to Blue but his past haunts him and it is not easy to act on the need he feels.  He has secrets that refuse to let him move forward and find someone to share his life with.  Tate senses that Blue is also damaged like he is and needs to heal.  Betrayals by people he trusted in the past have caused him to keep his heart protected from others.  Can he help Blue and at the same time heal himself?  There is no denying that the pull between them is hard to resist but when he finds out there is another man involved, can he control his jealousy?  Will Blue agree to a monogamous relationship, even without a future? Can he fit in with her group? Is there a happily ever after for Blue and Tate?  Read this sexy, funny book to find those answers!  You will not be disappointed in their story!
