“We were using each other, fucking and fighting like it was our job. We'd become each other's prisoners, twisting ourselves into a sexual Stockholm syndrome, but now we were in Rio.”


Katerina's guidelines on reading Out of Bounds 

➺ Always be equipped with the essentials: fan, bottles of freezing water and easy access to a bathtub. 

➺ Do NOT read in public or near parents/ judgy adults (most likely Muggles). Things can get really awkward.

➺ Do not, I repeat, DO NOT let your guards down and believe men like Erik Winter exist out there. Because you'll be like this

but in the end, the only thing you'll lick will be your e-reader/ tablet/ kindle/ i-phone and that's unhygienic.

You've been warned.

“From the first day I'd met Erik, we'd been at war. If we weren't throwing knives, we were falling into each other's arms.”

Out of Bounds was hands down R.S. Grey's steamiest book. It was bold. Sensual. It gave a whole new definition to the enemies-turn-to-lovers concept because Brie and Erik were enemies and lovers at the same time. Their war began the very first day they met, and the lines between right and wrong were blurry. Erik was the Olympic team's coach, and he wanted to prove that he was worthy of his title. Brie on the other hand was the gymnast, her life goal was to win not one, not two, but six medals and nothing could get in her way. The relationship bewteen them was non-existant. It was strained, and it varied between insults and constant bickering to hot and angry, desperate sex in the most unlikely places. No one wanted to surrender. It was a struggle for power and control. The result?

“I still wanted to rip his face off, but in my dreams-when I wasn't in control-my mind morphed into my darkest fantasy. No matter how hard I tried to resist him during my waking hours, the moment I closed my eyes, he was all I saw.”

This book had a sinister vibe. Erik managed to corrupt Brie because she wanted to be corrupted, be desired, she wanted to be seen. Even though I found her immature at some points, even annoying, I can't deny that she was the perfect match to Erik. To scolding, cold and dark Erik, who was obviously so delicious that I'd give up cupcakes if that meant I could get a taste of him.

Their story was intoxicating. Their scenes hotter than hell. They gave you goosebumps. It was the first time we witnessed this side of R.S. Grey's pen, and I loved the ride! And I'm ready for more!

There are two things Katerina can't live without; books and chocolate. And since she needs money to acquire them, she decided to become a lawyer (and she still wonders whether this was a good idea). When she's not reading, she keeps wishing she was reading, about wars, wizards, dark princes and great romances. Her favorite genres are Fantasy (both YA and Adult) and Contemporary Romance.
