Tethered by L.D. Davis Blog Tour

From the New York Times Best Selling Author of the Accidentally On Purpose trilogy… 

“You were born to be mine and I was born to be yours.” 

Donya Stewart’s chest filled with the soft beating wings of butterflies when she first met Emmet Grayne’s green eyes at the ripe age of five. Unable to identify the tugging pressure within her when in his presence, Donya moved through the first several years of her life addled by her feelings for the boy who was her best friend’s brother, and very much like her own sibling. But one cool autumn night in her mystifying teenage years, Emmet erases any ideas Donya has of him being anything like a sibling. 

Donya and Emmet, unable to deny the invisible cord that fetters them together on an incredibly visceral level, begin a long journey on a road abounding with challenges, hurdles, and destructive forces. Their love for one another is absolute, and the emotional link between them is strong, but when they make a series of painful decisions and mistakes that pull them apart, the strength of that tether is challenged. 

Donya’s career as a model took her around the world and away from Emmet who was working hard for his law degree. When Donya makes a hard decision for both of them, the tether between them stretches beyond what seems possible. 

“The tether contorted and quivered and groaned in protest.”

Happy endings aren’t always a guarantee, even for two people who were born into this world for each other. With age comes maturity and hindsight. Will Emmet and Donya have to live apart and with the consequences of their choices? Will the link between them bring them together or prove to ensnare them in heartache?

If you are in search of an angst-filled romance novel, get tied into Tethered…


Christine's Review: 

I must start this out with how much I absolutely loved the Accidentally on Purpose trilogy and was beyond excited to know that a character from that book had her own story to tell.

Donya is Emmy's best friend and she is a model but really we didn't know much more about her. You definitely do not need to read the trilogy in order to read this one.

This is a story full of angst, love and tons of heartbreak. Donya at a young age already had a connection to Emmett and it was so strong yet they always stayed in the brother/sister territory until one day they didn't. Donya was wise beyond her years due to her home life and kept a level head with how she wanted her relationship with Emmett to stay however at times I just wanted her to act like a normal teenager and take risks and make mistakes.
The connection that Emmett and Donya have is amazing yet way too many times did my heart break but thank goodness by the end it was put back together again. Donya and Emmett will take you on a whirlwind of a ride. Check it out!

I give Tethered 4 out of 5 bookmarks.
