Fire Bound by Christine Feehan

Major trigger warnings in this book. No seriously. Lots of trigger warning scenes to be had.
Lissa Piner has figured out that she's destined to be paired with a Prakenskii. But that doesn't mean she has to be happy about it. Especially when she finds him posing as a bodyguard at her uncle's house. The uncle that the rest of the women in this series know nothing about. Oh! That's because she has a whole double-life. One that Casimir Prakenskii is going to help her break out of. And, like, 4/5 of the book is them going after her enemies. And then the Big Bad from the rest of the series, the guy that put Casimir and his brothers through these torturous schools? He's met and dealt with in the final 1/5 of the book.
Why did I give this book two and a half? I don't know. I had so many, many... many issues with this book. Issues like the fact that Casimir is a douche. Not even barely likeable. Which makes me wonder about the last book in the series with a hero who seems like he might be douchier. I quite frankly couldn't really tell how his "dominance" was different from that of the supposed bad guy. Another problem I had with this book? The ENDLESS repetition of details. I get that you might have to repeat things once. Twice seems like overkill, so when this happens with more than one point of fact.... blergh.Oh. And there's sex on a horse. So there's that.In a series of crazy-pants stories, this is the craziest-pantsiest of them all. I'll probably read the last book in the series and then lay off Feehan for awhile. Though it is a testament to her writing that I had such HUGE issues and didn't DNF. And that it came out above two stars.

Two and a half stars
This book comes out April 26
