Book Review: With Visions of Red (Broken Bonds #1) by Trisha Wolfe

Police profiler Sadie always distances herself from the victims she's working with. She has to in order to do her job. But this latest case hits a little too close to home for her. She can't shake the feeling that something about this killer and crime scenes is somewhat familiar. That this is somehow personal. As more bodies are added to the killer's list, the darkness inside her seems to be growing. She's been repressing it for so long that when she meets Colton, she has little choice but to give in to him and finally let her dark side free.

Erotic thrillers aren't something I read a lot of and I am just now realizing what a shame that is because this one was fantastic. The author drew me in from the beginning and I was almost hypnotized by the story. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the next victim while searching for clues. And while all that nerve wracking crazy is going on, I'm also dying with anticipation to see where Colton can take her. When the two get near each other, I can practically feel the sparks. Where will they go from here? We know about Sadie's past and how it's made her into a damn fine profiler but Colton is a bit more of a mystery. Is there more to him than we realize? I'm really curious as to what his full story is.

Then of course there is the serial killer on the loose. I have my hunches on who it might be, but honestly it could be anyone and I'm not all that confident in my guess. Which is a testament to how well the author is keeping you on your toes. I thoroughly enjoyed the start to the series and I can't wait to continue want I need to know all the truths that are hiding in the dark.

Favorite Quotes
“There’s nothing wrong with you, goddess. Just the absolute tragedy that I didn’t make you mine first.”

“Here, with me, you are in control. This is your power.” He lifts one hand to grasp the knot between my wrists. “I want to touch you…everywhere. Taste you all over. Devour you and consume you. And trust that this is merely a weak form of expression compared to what I’m feeling.” His eyes shut briefly. When he opens them again, I witness the restrained hunger in their depths. “But I’ll only ever do as you ask. This is the trust between us. When you say stop, I’ll stop. When you demand more, I’ll exert myself until you’re satisfied.” His face is so close to mine, I just have to inch forward…one little inch…to taste him. “Now, those are the clear safe words between us. So tell me to taste you, and not to stop until you’re coming in my mouth.”

“Please, don’t use that word.”
“I’m going to make you feel that word for what it truly is; yours. It won’t belong to anyone else after this. You are beautiful, goddess.”

“With your permission, goddess.”

Title: With Visions of Red
Author: Trisha Wolfe
Series: Broken Bonds #1
Genre: Erotice, Romantic Suspense
Criminal profiler Sadie Bonds knows blood. Her affair with the gruesome, dark world of killers began long before she started applying her analytical skills to investigate gory crime scenes. She gets inside the killers’ heads, breaks them down, relates to them on an arcane level. She prefers it this way—because it’s safer to ally herself with the villain than the victim. At least, that’s how she’s coped ever since she was abducted and tortured as a teen.

She will never be a victim again.

Now, she’s honed her skills in order to bring justice to these ritualistic offenders. Working alongside her colleagues, armed with sharp wit and a SIG, Sadie always catches her sadist. Until one ruthless serial killer gets inside Sadie’s head, turning the tables. He knows her secrets. Her obsessions. The darkest, most deviant part of her soul.

When she meets Colton Reed, dangerous stakes are raised as he threatens to unravel her control and reveal her darkest fantasies. The sexy-as-sin bondage rigger at an exclusive BDSM club pushes her boundaries, forcing her to acknowledge that side of herself she fears. Plunged into a realm of torture and suffering, pain and pleasure, Sadie balances on the razor-sharp edge of two intersecting worlds threatening to swallow her.

Passion and lust ignite. Dark and light battle. This explosive first installment of the Broken Bonds series sets the exhilarating pace for a cat and mouse game where no one knows who’s really pulling the strings.
