Ashley: Omg yay!
Loretta: Only at 3% and the tears are already starting.
Tasha: Oh, yes. I finished Binding 13 saying out loud, “WTF kind of ending is that?!” I need book 2 ASAP!
Jenn: I am holding off on Binding 13 till Keeping 13 is out but getting even more excited to start with all the comments about it.
Tasha: Binding 13 is crazy good. If only ppl understood my need to live in this book and leave. me. be. It’s giving me old school feels! And talk about fleshed our characters. Something about the way they curse makes it feel more classy than over here. Lol! The spelling too.
Tessa: Binding 13 was perfect. More than 5 stars. I NEED BOOK TWO NOW! Just saying. I didn’t realize it was the same author as the one who wrote The Carter Kids. Just more reason to A, read the rest of that series and B, to have grabbed this book and read it right away. Good thing I only need to wait a month for book two.
And his mom… OMG, I was laughing SO HARD. Tears hard. I absolutely adore her.
Jan: Binding 13′s more NA than YA. I’m not often a fan of either genre really, but there was just something about this one and I couldn’t stop reading it. The length didn’t seem to be an issue. I’m easily bored in books but I never got bored with this one.
About book #1:
Johnny Kavanagh has everything going for him. On the rugby pitch, he’s a force to be reckoned with. Primed for stardom, he’s heading straight for the top. Nothing can possibly get in his way, right?
Not even the shy new girl at Tommen College. The one with the sad eyes and hidden bruises. The one that distracts him like no one ever has.
Plagued with a hidden injury and desperate to impress the scouts watching his every move, Johnny has been placed on a pedestal so high, he has no room to make mistakes. Striving to maintain balance, and on the crest of the International Summer Campaign, Johnny needs to keep his head in the game. He needs to stay focused, and cannot afford to let distractions get in the way of the bigger picture. But what happens when a lonely girl with sad eyes becomes the only picture?
Life has never been easy for Shannon Lynch. Bullied and tortured, she arrives at Tommen College mid-way through the school year praying for a fresh start and desperate to shake off the demons that plague her. On her very first day at the prestigious private school, she comes into contact with the notorious Johnny Kavanagh. Thrown through a hoop over her feelings for him, and desperate to keep a low-profile, Shannon finds herself once again the target of bullies as she forms a fragile alliance with rugby’s rising star.
Falling into a complicated friendship and grappling with their undeniable chemistry, Johnny and Shannon must face obstacles that threaten their relationship.
Two teenagers from opposite sides of the tracks collide. Friendship, first love, rising fame, horrifying secrets, and pain all fuel together in Binding 13.
