Captivated by Leo and his dark desires, Sloane wonders if her fascination with his dominance goes deeper than fantasy. Has she been seeking punishment to atone for the sins of her past all along? Though Leo’s brutal lust is what first enthralls her, the bonds of trust they form could have the power to heal her.
When the ties to her former life threaten to take hold of her again, the passion binding her to Leo may be the key to her ultimate release.
The synopsis is what drew me in. I knew I would enjoy the story, but not like this. Kate executes a passionate, raw, and intriguing story about loving again despite the circumstances. Being accepted as you are is the greatest love of all.
Sloane is determined to live a new and happier life after her previous relationship that caused her nothing but pain. Her life is shrouded in nightmares and her only escape is when she is awake. But even then she feels haunted by her past. She decides to write a novel. Through this, she befriends an owner of a bookstore. Ultimately, she meets his brother, Leo Calloway. She is drawn to him. A few words have her craving him. Leo sees something in her eyes. Something that he knows that she wants to belong to him.
I don’t want to give too much away, but Leo and Sloane fall into a dom and sub relationship. Their relationship is not a conventional one. It is so much more than you could ever know. You will fall for these two. Even root for them. But, there are demons that these two beautifully flawed people face. Secrets. And as they go deeper, their walls slowly come down. Until something threatens their foundation. A darkness that you don’t see coming. The writing was captivating and I found it hard to put down. The chemistry between Sloane and Leo is undeniable. I found myself easily enthralled by their developing relationship. I fell with them. Learned with them. Loved with them.
Bindings was an intense, but well written story. I didn’t expect it to get as deep as it did, and that kept me turning the pages. Leo is not just any kind of Dom. He finds a way to capture your heart and never let it go. The author expertly balances the BDSM and erotica aspect of the story with a well developed plot. That ending! Although I am not one for cliffhangers, I think the wait will be worth it. There is so much that unravels in their story. As the layers are peeled back, the reader is immersed in the lives of two characters that have so much to discover about themselves. Their story is far from over and I am excited for what’s to come.
