Review/Giveaway: Strapped Down (Strapped #2) By Nina.G.Jones

Book 1: Strapped (My Review)
Book 2: Strapped Down (Review Below) 

The much anticipated second installment of the Strapped Trilogy, Strapped Down picks up where the first installment concluded.

Eric is not going down without a fight, but Shyla and Taylor are willing to go to equally dark lengths to make him pay for his betrayal. In their quest to seek revenge and find happiness, deeply guarded secrets from their pasts begin to surface, revealing they are linked to each other in ways they could never have imagined.

For every secret they uncover, another seems to surface as they find themselves raveled in a web that extends much further than the confines of the darkroom. As Shyla and Taylor become more entwined with each other, she learns that Taylor’s dark side is far more dangerous than she believed. Will Shyla continue to follow Taylor into the darkness, or is he far too gone for her light to shine through?

Note: This is not a stand alone novel. Strapped (book 1) should be read before Strapped Down.

My Review

3.5-4 WTF-Just-Happened Stars!!

I am torn! I don't know what to think anymore, the ending was like Whaaaaattt!! will someone tell me whats going on? I'm confused and lost..I need answers to all the questions that are going around in my head.

This book starts off where book 1 finished where Eric is at Shyla's apartment.At the end of book 1 I was shocked and like omg everything is so messed up.I never expected things to get much worse but helloo book 2 and welcome to hell!

So many twists, lies, betrayal and much more.By the end of this book I was speechless and I had goosebumps. The way I felt about the characters kind of changed dramatically and I really don't know where they stand.

After the encounter with Eric, Taylor comes and after discussing the danger and the situation Eric has put them in they formulate a plan which will help in keeping Eric as far away from them and he wont be able to cause them problems.Okay I was all for getting rid of Eric when I found out what happened in book one but this one things were different. Was the masked man really Eric? If not who the hell is this guy!! Omg what if it was Taylor and this was all a ploy to get rid of Eric? Ohhh the questions and answers? Where are you?!

You find out more about Taylors mother as Shyla finds new information, and also a link between Taylor and Shyla. After her mother reveals some vital info more secrets begin to unfold.unfold. Shyla and Taylor's relationship is a struggle at times he is really closed off in matters and it infuriated me.I think Shyla should have told him about his mother a while back but Taylor's response made me take a step back.

Okay Taylor, oh what to say about him! I thought he was a good guy with problems after the past he had who could blame him right? But by the end of this book I'm not sure what to think of him? Did his past make him evil? He isn't that little boy anymore but his past will always be a large part of him.I just don't know what to think.

'He is infected'

The first half of the book was a little slow for my liking but the last half was fast, gripping and I couldn't stop reading.I can't wait to see how this story unfolds and what more is to come.
