Blurb: Sam Tyler is thrilled to discover that her lover is whisking her away for a weekend of exotic luxury. As a woman who knows just what she wants—her man all tied up like a living, breathing present—she’s quick to take advantage of his generous mood and begins planning a surprise of her own. One she fears he’s not going to like very much.
Adam thought the biggest shock of the weekend would come courtesy of the diamond engagement ring he has stashed in his luggage. So he’s rocked to the core when he discovers the petite woman he hopes to make his loving wife turns out to have a secret and very kinky side, and that she wants to see him helplessly bound for her pleasure. Even with mind-blowing sex as an incentive, it’s a hell of a tough request for a man who’s always in control—and Adam may not have the strength to surrender.
Pleasure Bound written by Kat Black is a smoking hot read that will send any woman scrabbling to tie her man up and have her way with him. Sam Tyler is a strong-willed woman, but when it comes to the man that she loves she is usually playing the submissive role in the bedroom. All she asks for her birthday is for Adam to turn the controls over to her. Can this alpha male be bound to her or will he reject her and the one fantasy that she has, asking him for ultimate trust and control of him?
I was amazed at the way in which the story twisted and turned. It was erotic, but there was also an emphasis on love as an emotion. I was enthralled with the story. It was a quick but breathless read. From the beginning to the end I was scrambling to find out where things would lead. Who among us hasn’t wondered what it would be like to take a quintessential Alpha male and have him completely at your mercy? This is one fantasy that I have imagined with my husband, and I would hope that his reaction would be much the same as the alpha in this novel. For anyone who has ever wondered about restraints this is a great story to ease someone into the idea of trying it themselves.
I am not one for whips and chains and much to my relief neither were featured in this story. It was a hot read and definitely one that I would recommend to any woman who has ever wanted to dominate as much as be dominated. If you have an alpha and have ever wondered what it would be like to take control, this is a must-read for you! Happy Reading!
