While reading In Chains (book 1), I fell in love with Kayden and Savannah. The amazing connection that they develop despite the odds is a wonderful story to read and discover that true love can find a way when you believe.
So needless to say, I couldn’t wait to begin reading Locked Together to find out what was in store for Kayden and Savannah. How would life be in the pound, did Savannah make the right decision, can their love for one another get them through this obstacle and what is going to come once they are able to be free from the Pound? In the society that they are from, is it even possible for them to ever be truly free to love one another.
Kayden is an amazing individual that will do anything for the ones he loves. The kindness that he demonstrates to others and his ability to love and care is unbelievable. Even when they are separated and Kayden doesn’t have any idea how to find the Savannah’s brother’s farm he doesn’t give up. Not only does he fight with every ounce of will and strength he has, he manages to find a way to work during the days to help raise money that he plans to give to his Savannah for a future together.
The struggles that Savannah has to face in the pound and after escaping are hard and at times seem to be unbearable. But somehow she is able to live through her love for Kayden and the hope that he will come back to her.
I couldn’t guess from page to page what might happen, if they would make it and have a future or if it was all is for nothing. Savannah again amazes me with her strength and her ability to look past what others see and do what is best for her. She lives for Kayden and her family; she refuses to be held back by society’s stereotypes and rules against slaves. This book proves to be a story of a true heroine (Savannah) and hero (Kayden) and their journey to find love and happiness. They might not be able to have a ‘normal’ life according to their society, but they are able to have a life that is filled with love, happiness and family and that is all that truly matters.
I loved these books and admire the tough issues of prejudice and racism that the author tackled within the story. The ability to look past another’s race, skin color, education, place in society and to truly see them as an equal is wonderful. I just wish more people in the ‘real world’ could have the same views, as Savannah, and demonstrate what it truly means to see no difference among people, that no matter what anyone says we are all human beings and deserve to have the same opportunities in life. To find love and happiness in your life is all that matters and is what everyone deserves… ❤
