In a world where women are commodities, the only thing more rare than finding true love is a happy ending.
Kayla is in hiding—her only crime being born a girl in a society of 99 percent men. When her sister and niece are kidnapped, she is willing to do anything to save them. Kayla ventures into the dangerous streets of the city, a place where a woman can be claimed by anyone unless she has been marked by a club.
Desperate, she turns to Mason, a powerful club leader whose help comes at a cost—her freedom.
“I want freedom. I want the right to live the way I want to live. I’m tired of hiding.”
Wow! Wow! Wow! Alyssa Rose Ivy has totally knocked it out of the park with this one!!! Now, it’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Alyssa Rose Ivy’s paranormal romances, so when I found out that she was writing a dystopian novel, I just knew I had to read it! And boy, does she not disappoint!!
Corded is the first book in an exciting new series from Alyssa Rose Ivy. Corded is unlike anything that we’ve ever seen from this author before. Told from dual points of view, Corded follows the story of Kayla and Mason. Kayla has lived her entire life in hiding. She lives in a society where being a woman is a not only rare, but also a crime. People will stop at nothing to get their hands on a woman. Everyday that Kayla is alive, is a dangerous one. If Kayla thought being hidden from society was tough, she was in for a tough surprise. When Kayla and her sister are kidnapped, her entire world will be turned upside down. Kayla will stop at nothing to save and free her sister. There is no price too high. Kayla will go and do things that she never expected to save her family, even seeking help from a dangerous club and its leader, Mason. Just how far will Kayla go to save her sister??? There is only one way to find out…
Corded was a thrilling and entertaining read. I was pulled in from the very first page and easily got lost in this dystopian world that Alyssa Rose Ivy created. It was so unique and so refreshing.
Mason was a really special treat. I’m not gonna lie, I was totally on the fence about him in the beginning and I totally questioned his intentions over the course of the story. But, in the end, he totally won me over. So, when you meet Mason, don’t discount him.
There is so much more to Corded than meets the eye. The setting and story-line are amazing. I loved the theme of family, of how important it was and just how rare and special women were. I loved seeing some light and sweet moments in a dark and harsh world. This story is definitely darker than what we normally see from this author and while the world she created may have been a harsh one, it is definitely one that will keep you on your toes and quickly turning the pages.
Corded is a fast paced and exciting read. This story is incredibly well written and thrilling. I think that the author was incredibly brave taking on the dystopian genre. It is something totally different from her and I am so excited to see where she is going to take our characters and their story next. And I promise you, after Corded, you are going to be begging the author to get Book 2 in your hands, asap!
