"You were born to be mine, and I was born to be yours."
Donya Stewart's chest filled with the soft beating wings of butterflies when she first met Emmet Grayne's green eyes at the ripe age of five. Unable to identify the tugging pressure within her when in his presence, Donya moved through the first several years of her life addled by her feelings for the boy who was her best friend's brother and very much like her own sibling.
But one cool autumn night in her mystifying teenage years, Emmet erases any ideas Donya has of him being anything like a sibling. Donya and Emmet, unable to deny the invisible cord that fetters them together on an incredibly visceral level, begin a long journey on a road abounding with challenges, hurdles, and destructive forces. Their love for one another is absolute, and the emotional link between them is strong, but when they make a series of painful decisions and mistakes that pull them apart, the strength of that tether is challenged.
Donya's career as a model takes her around the world and away from Emmet, who is working hard for his law degree. When Donya makes a hard decision for both of them, the tether between them stretches beyond what seems possible.
"The tether contorted and quivered and groaned in protest."
With age comes maturity and hindsight. Will Emmet and Donya have to live apart and with the consequences of their choices? Happy endings aren't always a guarantee, even for two people who were born into this world for each other. Will the link between them bring them together or prove to ensnare them in heartache?
If you are in search of an angst-filled romance novel, get tied into Tethered....
Note from the author: Tethered is meant for mature listeners over the age of 18. This is a standalone novel - listening to my other published novels is welcome, of course, but not necessary.

My Long Wait Is Over and Rewarded!
It's been three long years since L D Davis released AOP on Audible. So when I got a tweet that Tethered was coming out I preordered and downloaded it at midnight the second it became available.
All I can say is wow! I loved, loved this story, it's well written and takes place from when Donya was a young child and straight through to adulthood and her long lasting connection to Emmett, her bff's older brother. It's filled with drama and angst but it never feels contrived. It's real world problems.
Don't expect the this to be a pretty love story about perfect people who live perfect lives and never do anything wrong or deceitful and live happily ever after. It's a gritty love story about imperfect real people who make very real mistakes and hurt themselves and others along the way. Kinda like real life if you ask me. That in a nutshell is why I enjoy this authors writing so much, it's like me wrapping gifts at Christmas, yeah it's all wrapped up in a pretty bow in the end, but the carnage to get it there is littered all around.
Great job by the narrator, and here's to hoping we get a lot more on Audible from LD Davis.

A Rollercoaster Ride of Emotions
This was a long listen but worth the time.
I found myself either smiling, tearing up or laughing out loud.
The characters were well-developed and the story line kept my interest through the end.
The narrator was awesome.
This will be a story I'll be happy to listen to again some day.
