About Bound to Submit:

From the ruins of an abandoned church comes Baltimore’s hottest and most exclusive BDSM club. Twelve Masters. Infinite fantasies. Welcome to Blasphemy…

He thinks he caused her pain, but she knows he’s the only one who can heal her…

Kenna Sloane lost her career and her arm in the Marines, and now she feels like she’s losing herself. Submission is the only thing that ever freed her from pain and made her feel secure, and Kenna needs to serve again. Bad. The only problem is the Dom she wants once refused her submission and broke her heart, but, scarred on the inside and out, she’s not looking for love this time. She’s not even sure she’s capable.

Griffin Hudson is haunted by the mistakes that cost him the only woman he ever loved. Now she’s back at his BDSM club, Blasphemy, and more beautiful than ever, and she’s asking for his help with the pain he knows he caused.

Excerpt:

Later, in the car on the way home, with happiness and two rare cocktails flowing through her, Kenna’s joy made her so damn horny that she couldn’t stop shifting her legs. The second they got in the door of her apartment, she was gonna climb Griffin and ride him until neither of them had bones left in their legs.

“You’re killing me, Kenna,” he said from behind the wheel of the sleek Audi A7.

Her eyes flashed to him. “What?” she asked, though she could hear her arousal in her voice. No doubt he could, too.

“You turned on and it’s driving me insane.” He cut a knowing look her way.

“I can’t help it. You make me want you.”

“Fuck, baby. That’s the best thing I’ve heard all day. Push your pants and panties down and make yourself come. I want to watch. I want to hear you. I want my car to fucking smell like you.”

A thrill shot through her, and she did as he told her. She slid down in her seat and let her knees fall open, and then she touched her pussy, her fingers immediately finding evidence of just how turned on she was.

“Fuck,” he said under his breath. They came to a stop at a light. “Finger yourself for me.” She did, throwing her head back on a moan.

“Christ, Kenna. I don’t know how I’m gonna wait to get in you.” He adjusted the bulge in the front of his jeans.

“Keep touching yourself like that,” she whispered. “Squeeze your cock and think about fucking me while I masturbate for you.” The groan he unleashed added urgency to the sensations spiraling between her legs. “God, Griffin.”

His gaze flashed between the road and her, his mirrors and her, and the road and her again. He turned off the music so that only her breathing and the wet sounds of her hand’s movements filled the luxury sedan.

And then it was all too much. “May I please come, Sir? May I please come?”

“God, yes, Kenna. Come. And know that I’m gonna be on you the second I park this goddamned car.”

Review:

Bound to Submit is a second chance romance story, and very sweet–no small feat, because there are large chunks of it that are not sweet at all… 😉

Kenna and Griffin were in a mostly-exclusive D/s relationship five years ago when she told him she wanted more. Griffin said he didn’t, and Kenna left.

He regretted it almost immediately, but it was already too late–Kenna had quit her job and moved away. Griffin didn’t know it at the time, but she’d joined the Marines.

Now she’s back, having survived an IED explosion. She suffers from survivor guilt, has trouble sleeping, and feels phantom pain from her missing right forearm. She needs something to take her out of her own head for a while, so she returns to Griffin’s club, Blasphemy.

Griffin is a master of Shibari, an artistic form of rope bondage, and I really liked how he did all he could to find out how he could use his art and not compromise Kenna’s prosthetic arm. He did a great job of helping her figure out what she needed to start on the path of real healing, and wow, did their scenes sound amazing.

However, I found myself wishing that the book had been longer. Even though the two had clearly been pining for each other for the last five years, their reunion was accomplished really quickly and they transitioned into something more almost right away. Don’t get me wrong, I wanted them together, but it hardly felt like they had to work at it at all–the blips they ran into along the way were pretty much just that, blips. A longer story could have given them more time to develop their relationship more fully, and shown us in more detail the path that Kenna’s new life is going to take from this point on.

Still, it was an entertaining way to spend a few hours. I liked the old and new series characters, and I am looking forward to finding out what’s going to happen with the rest of the Masters of Blasphemy as the series continues.

Rating: 4 stars / B+
