Picking herself up after the devastating loss of her master is more difficult than Darcy anticipated. Just when she needs someone the most, a handsome dom steps in and helps her out. Theo is thoughtful, dominant, and demanding — everything she needs. He pushes her boundaries, tests her limits, and takes her to new heights. With him, she remembers what it is to feel joy and love and a firm hand on her ass.
Agent Malcolm Legato is after a corrupt businessman, and Darcy is his ticket into the upper echelon of Snyder Corp. As “Theo,” he makes contact with her and cultivates her as an asset. Since she’s also a suspect in her master’s disappearance, he can’t reveal himself to her, even when he realizes she’s another of Snyder’s victims. He falls hard for this feisty submissive, and he knows he’ll break her heart the moment she finds out he’s been lying to her all along.
When it all falls apart, will Darcy be able to find the strength to forgive Malcolm so they can build a life together and the courage to bring justice to the man she loved and lost?
RE/BOUND is an absorbing story about a submissive’s intense rebound relationship after the mysterious disappearance of her Master months earlier. This was a very enjoyable read that combined two of my favorite genres: BDSM (with a focus on the S&M) and romantic suspense.
The characterizations of Malcolm and Darcy as a new D/s couple were spot on. They were realistic, likable and full of depth and emotion. Their relationship developed at a steady pace, where limits where explored and pushed, but safe words were always respected.
Malcolm was a clever Dom who understood a submissive masochist like Darcy couldn’t be punished with pain. He was strict but very caring. Obviously, he put himself in a precarious situation by lying to Darcy about his true identity – trust is the cornerstone of any healthy D/s relationship, but it was a risk he was willing to take.
I adored Darcy and could easily connect with her. She was a spirited submissive, not bratty at all, but she did have a backbone and had no problem speaking her mind. She wasn’t afraid to push Malcolm’s limits as well. Darcy made Malcolm earn her submission, which, in my opinion, is how it should be.
RE/BOUND is a suspenseful and very steamy story, and I would highly recommend it to fans of BDSM erotic romances.
