Bound by Amelia Bishop
LGBTQ+ Contemporary Romance
Adrian’s life changed forever after an accident left him paralyzed in both legs. He’s isolated himself, quit his job, and barely interacts with other people. Grumpy and angry with life, the only time he really gets out is to attend his weekly physical therapy sessions. When one of the therapists at the office asks him out he’s terrified — after all, who would want someone like him? Nate was attracted to Adrian from the moment he saw him and even Adrian’s surliness couldn’t keep him away. He was determined to show Adrian that there was nothing wrong with him and that he could still find love.
I really felt for Adrian’s grief and his depression over his situation. His confidence in himself was demolished and it was hard work for him to see the good he still had. He’s shocked when Nate asks him out but I loved Nate for his perseverance in going after Adrian; he really needed someone to kick him out of his rut. The romance between these two was great and they had wonderful chemistry, especially when they realize their mutual enjoyment of mild BDSM. Though a novella, the story covers a lot of time, especially in the beginning as it quickly summarizes Adrian’s recovery. A great way to spend an hour!
