With Visions of Red Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Criminal profiler Sadie Bonds knows blood. Her affair with the gruesome, dark world of killers began long before she started applying her analytical skills to investigate gory crime scenes. She gets inside the killers' heads, breaks them down, relates to them on an arcane level. She prefers it this way - because it's safer to ally herself with the villain than the victim. At least, that's how she's coped ever since she was abducted and tortured as a teen.
She will never be a victim again.
Now, Sadie's honed her skills in order to bring justice to these ritualistic offenders. Working alongside her colleagues, armed with sharp wit and a SIG, Sadie always catches her sadist. Until one ruthless serial killer gets inside Sadie's head, turning the tables. He knows her secrets. Her obsessions. The darkest, most deviant part of her soul.
When Sadie meets Colton Reed, dangerous stakes are raised as he threatens to unravel her control and reveal her darkest fantasies. The sexy-as-sin bondage rigger at an exclusive club pushes her boundaries, forcing her to acknowledge that side of herself she fears. Plunged into a realm of torture and suffering, pain and pleasure, Sadie balances on the razor-sharp edge of two intersecting worlds threatening to swallow her.
Passion and lust ignite. Dark and light battle. This explosive Broken Bonds series sets the exhilarating pace for a cat-and-mouse game where no one knows who's really pulling the strings.

I loved the interplay between Sadie and Colton, how he both wanted to dominate her and worship at her feet at the same time. It felt like a realistic and very fresh take on this type of relationship. Instead of him being a typical alpha/Dom who forces her and everyone else to submit to his whims, Colton and Sadie had what felt like a much more equal power exchange.
The reason I took away 1 star was that in truth, Colton's back story does not make a whole lot of sense and did not feel realistic. I had to suspend my disbelief on that one and just continue enjoying the rest of the story. And another character did things that I didn't quite understand his motives for, and they weren't really dealt with in a satisfactory way. But that didn't really take away from the awesome cat and mouse rollercoaster this story took me on!
Be warned, each book ends on a cliff hanger, which is why I'd highly recommend buying the set of 3 so you can keep reading until the final word. I absolutely loved the ending!
Sadie Bonds, is a profiler for the Arlington, VA police department. She is all kinds of messed up due to being kidnapped, raped, and tortured by a serial killer when she was 16. Colton Reed is a rope bondage (shibari) expert who works in his brothers fetish club, The Lair. Sadie visits The Lair to vicariously experience the euphoria and release that the subs of the bondage rigger experience. The Lair is where Sadie and Colton meet.
There is a serial killer on the loose and Sadie is on the case. A secret that Colton Reed and his brother share endangers them all and puts them in the crosshairs of the killer.
I really enjoyed reading this story. I highly recommend it. It’s smart, sexy, visceral, and very well written. I bought it because I like books with a BDSM theme. If you are expecting something like Fifty Shades of Grey you will be sorely disappointed. Kink is not the main theme of this story but is the common interest that Colton and Sadie share. It has some really erotic scenes but this is truly an on-the-edge-of-your-seat murder mystery. The story concentrates on how profilers solve crimes by thinking like a serial killer, putting themselves into the mind-set of those killers and almost having their own minds rewired to be like a killer.

This complete serial features Sadie Bonds, a behavioral analyst for the State of Virginia, introduced in the Darkly, Madly duet. Kidnapped, held prisoner, and tortured as a teenager, she now works to find the hunters before they capture their prey. To fight off her own demons, she goes to the Voyeur Room at The Lair, where she meets Colton Reed, a Shibari roper who offers to help her. But someone has been watching Sadie while she watches others, someone from her dark past. And as a new serial killer comes to light, Sadie and Colton find themselves trying to identify a killer who has set his sights on Sadie, his woman in red.
This boxed set is the best way to approach the Visions of Red serial, which doesn't end until book three. I found the books to be almost as captivating as the Darkly, Madly duet, which was my introduction to Trisha Wolfe. I'm looking forward to more, beginning with the first book in the second half of the Broken Bonds series, the Ties That Bind, featuring Avery, the medical examiner from this boxed set.
I read through all three of these books in a week and a half.
My favorite quote: "There's nothing wrong with you, goddess. Just the absolute tragedy that I didn't make you mine first." ~Colton Reed

Sadie is a criminal profiler with a violent past, making her the person she is today. Colton, a bondage rigger (rope expert) at a BDSM club also has skeletons in his closet. When these two meet, it is fireworks, sexy and hot as hell. He is a protective alpha male and so sinful.
I won't repeat the story as it has been told perfectly by others but I will say, this is a must read. I couldn't put it down and read it in one day.
Well done Trisha.
A good storyline and very well written and I couldn't put it down! Not to mention the hot sex!!!!
