Book Summary:

The UNSUB has made contact.  

After a rapid string of grisly murders shakes the usually peaceful city of Arlington, Virginia, the sadistic killings of young women lull into a deceptive calm. Agent Sadie Bonds knows the terror isn’t over; serial killers don’t stop until caught. 

And this sadist has targeted the profiler, revealing pieces of her dark past and weaving her secrets into each gruesome crime scene. Is the killer someone from Sadie’s past, her present? Or is he part of a fated future she brought on herself? The answer lies within the riddle of the copycat killings, ones mimicked after the infamous Blood Countess. As tension brews in the department awaiting the UNSUB’s next move, Sadie’s more than on edge—her deviant cravings for the possible perpetrator have ratcheted out of control. She needs the feel of Colton’s ropes binding her, sheltering her from stark reality. 

Only Colton Reed has his own twisted secrets that threaten to unravel not only Sadie as they come to light, but the UNSUB’s carefully constructed web now entangling both the profiler and her sexy bondage rigger. 

Is Sadie too close to this case to be objective, or is the UNSUB closer to her than she ever imagined…

Lindy's Thoughts:

With Visions of Red, Part 2, continues to be an exhilarating page turner!  This is a high octane thriller, that keeps the reader on their toes every step of the way.  As criminal profiler Sadie Bonds continues to work the case of a sadistic serial killer, she painstakingly exams all of the evidence, and we as readers feel like we are right there with her looking at all of the clues.  Time is running out as the serial killer continues to commit gruesome murders, and draws closer to Sadie.  

The danger is palpable, and goosebumps crawled up my skin as the killer sent messages to Sadie, and it was obvious that he was watching her closely.  Now, he is targeting those she is close to.  The killer knows things that he shouldn't.  Is there a leak in the department, or is the killer someone from the inside?  One thing is certain, time is ticking, and the sand in the hourglass is about to run out...

With Visions of Red is one of those stories that really makes you think.  Like a complex puzzle, I was determined to put the pieces together.  However, this story is anything but predictable.  Right when you think one person is guilty, you change your mind, because really the killer could be anyone.  It could be Sadie's partner, Detective Quinn, rookie Detective Carson, the police captain, Wexler, Colton (her lover), Colton's brother, Julian, or Colton's roommate, Jefferson.  The possibilities are endless.

Trisha's writing is brilliant.  It is beautiful, and her words hypnotize the reader.  She paints a picture in the readers mind so vivid, that scene after scene unfolds like a movie reel in your head.  All of the characters have a bit of mystery to them.  Colton has his secrets, and Sadie has hers.  Yet, as we learn more about these characters, we begin to get a clearer picture of who they are, what makes them tick, and we learn about the skeleton's in their closet; which is something they all seem to have.  This makes for a very intriguing and entertaining cast of characters.

Now lets discuss the sexy, enigmatic, passionate, and nonconventional, Colton Reed.  This man is sex on a stick.  Sadie can't stay away, and as a reader I don't want her to.  When these two are in the same vicinity as one another, lust, and passion overtake all of their senses.  Sadie and Colton steam up the kindle screen, and like a match thrown on kindling with a bit of gasoline, all I could see was the blazing inferno all around them.  They continue to practice their erotic rope play, and are obsessed with one another.  However, we also begin to see trust and a deeper emotional connection develop between them as well.  They begin to confide in one another, and for better or worse, Sadie has decided to take a leap of faith where Colton is concerned.

We are left with a climatic ending, and a to be continued.  Who is the killer?  We still don't know, but all will be revealed in the third and final book.  Until then, I will be counting down the days until I get to finish this addicting page-turner!  

My Rating:

I give, With Visions of Red, Broken Bonds #2, by Trisha Wolfe, 5 Game of Cat and Mouse, Time is Running Out, Ravishing and Erotic Obsession Filled Stars!

Ro's Take on this Journey:

Trisha Wolfe has done it again, as only she knows how, in With Visions of Red (Broken Bonds#2.)  I was riveted once again, and thrown into this world of seduction and intrigue.  I was completely enveloped in the minds of Sadie and Colton.  This is where my mind goes crazy and I am on the brink of figuring out this rubix cube of hypnotic terror!!!

The reader never knows what is going to hit them, as they walk a tightrope, through the crime scenes, and the killer that has all the answers. Your mind is invaded, corrupted, bedazzled, titilated, and completely off balance.  Just who is the killer?  Who knows all the secrets?  Are they voyeuristic, watching her every move?  The questions are endless.

Believe me readers, Ms. Wolfe is a master story teller, the way her killer is a master manipulator.  There are no easy answers to figuring out this puzzle.  The fear will invade your bones.  Your mind will be swirling in the vortex of the tumultuous countdown, with the sadistic, interwoven, finely crafted, double life of this profiler and her serial killer.

The passion and lust runs so deep that it makes the reader feel the climatic explosion from within.  Ms. Wolfe has outdone herself, which is very difficult to do in my book!  Don't miss out on this suspenseful, lust filled, erotic, balancing act of a lifetime.  You will not be disappointed, I promise. You will find yourself living and breathing through the killer's mind, trying to strategize his every move...but it won't be that easy!  The characters are so well crafted.  Ms. Wolfe's prose are once again in a league of their own.  She is one of a kind.  I am thrilled to be a part of her phenomenal journey, and you will be too!!! 

My Rating:

I give, With Visions of Red (Broken Bonds #2) by Trisha Wolfe, 5 Explosive, Grinding, Pulsating, Riveting, On the Edge of Your Seat, Tension Filled Stars!!!
