His heart is bound tighter than the bondage he craves...
Determined to put her past behind her, Cassidy Peyton moves to the Big Apple. But New York has a few dark secrets of its own, including Serve, an exclusive BDSM club. It's a place she isn't sure she's ready for, until she sees him watching her. Hot. Intent. Knowing. With eyes that leave her stomach tied in knots, because the loneliness he's trying to hide matches her own.
Security expert David Cavill has more secrets than any man should. Secrets that forever shut down any possibility of love, marriage, or family. Yet Cassidy draws him in, an intoxicating combination of strength, candor, and sensuality that David can't resist. But as their bond deepens, Cassidy must decide if she can love a man whose heart is bound tighter than the form of bondage he craves...
An easy afternoon read that is pure fantasy and sensual excitement, BIND ME BEFORE YOU GO is the eighth installment in the Serve series. And also the shortest. While this makes for a quick read on a lazy Saturday afternoon, the shortness of the novel(ella?) means that our hero and heroine – David and Cassidy – didn’t really get a chance to fully develop and shine. I would have liked to see more exploration of their backstories and how their past relates to their personalities and present desires.
Regardless, this novel was still good. David and Cassidy explore their desires together in the safe environment of the Serve BDSM club. Though the novel does involve BDSM, it is light and instead focuses more on the emotional connection between David and Cassidy which in turns plays into their club scenes together. Theirs is a student/teacher relationship as David teaches Cassidy about the intricacies and art of Shibari, a form of Japanese rope bondage. David is very considerate of Cassidy, both physically and emotionally, which is precisely what sweet, people-pleasing Cassidy needed.
The plot was a little rushed and the couple’s love of the “insta-” variety, but I did enjoy the book and would pick up another by this author in the future.
