I've read several books by Sierra Cartwright and I've really enjoyed them all - Bind was just as good as the previous books I read, and I'd go as far as saying that it was the best of the bunch. Bind is a real page turner, I whizzed through it because I found myself very reluctant to put it down! The storyline is intriguing, and I thought it was paced perfectly. Ms Cartwright builds brilliant characters, her Doms especially are always sinfully sexy and easy to fall in love with. The supporting characters in this book are also great, and I'm looking forward to reading some of their stories in future books in this series.
Lara goes to desperate measures to help save her family's business, and makes an outrageous proposal to businessman Connor Donovon - one he can't say no to. But Connor wants something in return for his help - Lara's submission. Lara has always wanted 'more' in the bedroom and soon finds that Connor can give her pleasure beyond her wildest dreams. Their chemistry is sizzling, but can Lara go through with their plans and fully submit to Connor?
The BDSM elements of the story are very well done, this author is very good at balancing realistic, believable D/s dynamics with seriously hot scenes, and shows brilliantly how strong submissives are. I really enjoyed this book, the romantic and family storylines were strong and easily held my attention. This is another winner from Sierra Cartwright - five stars!
