Opposites Attract, Love Happens

Review of Bound to Love; Sally Clements; Embrace Books 2011; pp 218

– Shana Susan Ninan

A feisty and impulsive redhead. A self-reliant, matter-of-fact, security expert. A kidnapping and a museum heist. Sally Clements, who mixes crime and romance, weaves a quick read, full of suspense and fun in Bound to Love, set in England and France.

Both Tempest and Jake act the way they do as a result of their fathers’ deaths. Jake’s father took the bullet for a stranger without thinking of his wife and son back home. And so, Jake deplores people who act on instincts, without thinking of the consequences. On the other hand, Tempest’s father was robbed and attacked on a street, and left to die there. She feels that if someone, anyone at all, were to help him he would have been alive today. Tempest never wastes a chance to help anyone, not even a stranger.

When Paul, Jake’s buddy and partner decides to get even with Jake, Tempest, a.k.a. Red as Jake calls her, falls into the thick of things. What follows is a series of events, intriguing and interesting. The two run around to stop the heist and to restore calm. In the process, falling in love. Clements writes with passion, often letting images float into readers’ minds without interrupting the flow of reading.
