Review ARC~ Bonds of Trust by Lynda Aicher

Bonds of Trust (Wicked Play, #1)

From Goodreads:

After ending her passionless marriage, Cali Reynolds is eager to live out her forbidden fantasies. Her first step is attending new members' night at The Den, the most exclusive sex club in town. Perhaps here she can find a man who understands her desire to be dominated…

At first, Jake McCallister thinks Cali has come to his club for the wrong reasons. But when he discovers she is seeking fulfillment after years of denial, he's intrigued—and takes it upon himself to initiate her into the pleasures she's been missing.

Her first encounter with Jake is everything Cali has always craved, and more; she's not prepared for the feelings he inspires in her. And Jake is just as surprised by his overwhelming attraction to Cali. As their play intensifies, so does their bond. Now, Jake doesn't want anyone but Cali—but is he ready to officially claim her? And will she submit to being his forever?

My Thoughts:

Where to begin? This is should be on your what to read after Fifty Shades list. It is definitely an adult book! 

Cali Reynolds has decided to finally get some satisfaction. She is looking for something and someone to excite her and she she finds what she is looking for and then some when she goes to The Den. The problem is once isn't enough and she is embarrassed about acting on those types of desires in the light of day. She is afraid of what people will think of her if they found out.

She is indecisive at first about Jake and acting on her desire for him. When she finally makes a decision, something unforeseen happens and they have words. You'll have to read it yourself to find out if they have a HEA.

I found Bonds of Trust to be a steamy story. I had trouble walking away from it. I really, really enjoyed it and I am soooo looking forward to reading the next book in this series, Bonds of Need .

Bonds of Trust wasn't just about sex, many issues would have been resolved if Cali and her ex-husband had communicated. That is so true in any type of relationship, communication is the key! This book also shows how, quite often, we are our own worst enemy and we second guess ourselves and self sabotage things.

This book had steamy adult scenes with some mild BDSM and romance. If you like Fifty Shades of Grey you should give this a try.

I received a review copy from the publisher for review through Netgalley.    

You can pre-order a copy of Bonds of Trust from Amazon for $1.99!

It is due out at the end of November from Carina Press.

I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please leave a comment!
