Release Date: July 21, 2015
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
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...
As a favor to her roommate, Allie, Cassidy agrees to go with her to Serve, a local BDSM club. When Allie hooks up with the manager, his friend David agrees to "babysit" Cassidy. The attraction is immediate on both sides. Cassidy is hot, quirky, and very snarky and sarcastic. David is immediately smitten. David is all alpha, hot, and sexy, but also protective and cautious.
Within a few hours of meeting Cassidy and David are back at Cassidy's place and David is all about pleasing Cassidy. He then explains that he is into Shibari and can only be with her for 2 weeks. He's not looking for anything long term.
After Cassidy agrees to David's terms, David slowly introduces Cassidy to BDSM and shibari. But both are careful to make sure that they don't fall. Of course, that doesn't happen. Cassidy falls for David. David doesn't want that. He's been burnt in the past because of family issues and he's afraid for anyone to see his family. He won't open up.
This book was fast paced and a quick, easy Summer read. At times it was almost too fast paced. We met Cassidy and David and they were definitely developed, but the relationship seemed a little fast. Overall though I really liked all the characters, the story, and the writing. I haven't read any other books in the Serve series or any other Harper Kincaid books, but I definitely will be looking for more of both.
I give Bind Me Before You Go 3.5 STARS!
The mind of a pragmatist,
And the inappropriate humor of your tipsy BFF...
Born in California and raised in South Florida, I've moved around like a gypsy with a bounty on my head ever since. Along the way, I've worked as a community organizer, a professional matchmaker, an art teacher, a popular blogger, and a crisis counselor (to name a few). All the while, longing to have the guts and follow-through to do what I really wanted: to write and become a published author. That wish has finally come true and I am tickled pink with glitter over this good piece of fortune.
What else? Hmm...I love indie, lo-fi, complaint rock played on vinyl, wearing black because it's slimming, the theater, well-informed optimism, happy endings (both kinds),and making those close to me laugh 'til they snort. I'm a self-admitted change junkie, loving new experiences and places, but have now happily settled in the cutest lil' town, Vienna, Virginia. I totally love hearing from readers so stalk me via social media or email me at HarperKincaid26@gmail.com!
