Warning: This isn’t a clean YA book like most have been before this, it’s for ADULTS ONLY. If you don’t like erotica, please don’t pick up this book and then complain about it. You’ve been warned.
[box] Lily had a suspicion her new roommate was the type to always take control, no matter what the situation. It wasn’t until she accidentally peeked in on Chaz dominating another woman, that her suspicions were realized. Lily watched with amazement as Chaz masterfully played the female like a sensual instrument, bringing her the most intense gratification Lily had ever witnessed. After witnessing his sexual expertise from a distance and noticing the careful attention he gives to his lovers, Lily wanted nothing more than to have his hands sculpt every inch of her body. Unable to forget the incredibly erotic scene Chaz so skillfully played out, Lily sought to make her desires known by casually submitting to him throughout their daily lives. To her excitement, Chaz invites Lily to his prestigious art show opening at a local gallery. All it takes is a slinky dress, a pair of kitten heels, and a tiny scrap of lace to drive Chaz wild, causing some very heated moments.[/box]
An excerpt from Bind Me
As I knelt there watching his every move with expectation, Chaz began to unbutton the cuffs of his sleeves and roll them up, allowing the defined muscles of his forearms to show. He then began unbuttoning his shirt just enough that the oh-so-sexy tattoo on his left pectoral peeked from beneath the fabric. I was lucky to keep myself from drooling at the sight of the black ink tracing around his toned muscles and perfectly sculpted skin.
Another WARNING. You may learn something new about me that isn’t as angelic as this blog makes me out to be.
As someone acquainted with the BDSM lifestyle, I always get a bit giddy when an author gets it right. Most of the relationships aren’t just about domination and pain like some books try to convince you of *cough* Fifty Shades of Terrible *cough* and Bind Me got it right.
Chaz and Lily are roommates but when Lily accidentally walks in on Chaz and another girl, she realizes she wants more than a platonic relationship with him. What’s more, she wants what he had going on with the other girl. Lily slowly starts changing her behavior around him to make sure Chaz gets the hint about what she wants from him and boy does he!
Bind Me is written by someone that obviously understands that there are more sides to an alternative sexual relationship than is usually portrayed. Author Rene Folsom delivers a story that draws the reader in, even if this isn’t the type of book they usually go for. Well written and sensually graphic, Bind Me ends with you imagining what happens after Chaz and Lily go home for the night.
If you’ve never read a bondage book, this would be a great one to start with. Nothing scary happens in it and Lily is in full control at all times. She just has to say stop. Rene has a way with words that allows you to visualize what is going on and it leaves you wishing for more. This wasn’t the first book, nor the last, that I’ve read by her but it IS the only one that makes me want to lock her in a room and take away her internet connection until she continues with Lily and Chaz’s story. I want to know if they get together any more. If they date. If they get married. If a third person enters the equation. If he finds someone better. But no. We don’t get that. What we do get, and we’re happy for the crumbs she threw our way, is the amazing story of two people exploring each other in public(ish). I loved it. Now I’m just waiting to forget enough of it so that I can read it again! And again. And again.
