They’re playing for keep. Eight years ago, a naive Katie Crane ran from Ry and Jed, warned their brand of love would ruin her life. Now she’s all grown up and returning home with a better understanding of the BDSM lifestyle. After the betrayal she’s faced at her father’s hands, she worries she won’t be strong enough to submit to the men she gave her heart and virginity to at eighteen. Jed Malloy and Ry McCade are surprised and thrilled by Katie’s return to Felton’s Creek. They’d been heartbroken after her departure and had turned to each other, embracing the BDSM lifestyle without her. Katie’s homecoming sparks hope and worry. Ry isn’t sure he can keep his dominant side under control, and Jed fears Katie will see him as less of a man by being a switch and Ry’s submissive. Having Katie back could mean the beginning of everything they’ve ever wanted or the end to the only family they’ve ever known
My Rating: 3/5 stars
It’s really hard for me to resist a cover and title like Bound and Teased has and so, I did not resist 🙂
This was a one-sitting read for me and though it has a very, very thin plot I still enjoyed the read but mostly, I enjoyed the hot sex. Here’s the breakdown . . .
After nearly a decade away from home, Katie Crane has decided it’s time to return to the only two men she has ever truly loved. Jed Malloy and Ry McCade have made a life for themselves in their small hometown. One is the sheriff and one is horse trainer and both are desperately in love with one another and the girl who ran from them. Though Jed and Ry have made a nice life for themselves, both have always hoped Katie would come back to them. One day, she does . . . .
When Katie left Jed and Ry, she was barely 18 years old and under the mistaken impression that they would somehow ruin her life is she stayed with them and indulged in any sort of relationship. The whole town would know and she would be participating in an unnatural relationship. Or so her father told her. And so, Katie took off to New York with her father, made a career for herself, found an asshole boyfriend, and discovered a whole lot of truly awful stuff related to her dad and boyfriend. Nothing like, shock, revulsion, anger, and outrage to make a girl pack her bags and leave town.
Within days of arriving back in town, Katie is reunited with Jed and Ry and everyone makes their intentions crystal clear. Jed and Ry want Katie, Katie wants Jed and Ry but there must be ground rules. Katie isn’t interested in being anyone’s slave but she is interested in submitting sexually. Jed and Ry aren’t interested in a slave either but they are very interested in Katie’s submission to them both. Additionally, they are interested in Katie’s response to their continued existence as a couple. If Katie can’t accept Jed and Ry as a couple, then there really is no future for the three of them.For weeks, the three experiment with one another in a variety of ways with most of the encounters going exquisitely well. A few times, things go a bit wonky which leads Katie to having to reveal things about her past she thought were long buried. As she quickly discovers, the boys want nothing but the best for her and are willing to go to any length to protect her. Turns out, the boys have a lot to protect Katie from especially when her sleazy ex and father come to drag her back to New York.
The Bottom Line: I can’t really knock Bound and Teased too much for being all about the sex because every now and again, I am totally down for a book that is all about the gratuitous sex. As I mentioned previously, the plot is pretty thin and it feels like Katie’s past and present issues are the things that happen randomly between sex scenes. As to those sex scenes . . . . WOWSA!! This is where the story gets good with loads of naughty bits that varied and dirty but always respectful and safe. Jed and Ry and creative guys and they like to play with one another just as much as they like playing with Katie. In all, I found the naughty bits to be the best part of the read and if all you are looking for is some steamy sex with some other random bits thrown in to break up the sex, then Bound and Teased just might be the read for you 🙂
