Blurb:

Liam Muller’s passion for life, mixed with his abusive past created more problems than Greg Peterson could handle on his own. When the pair meet Chris Edwards, everything changes. Both Greg and Chris keep Liam even, but when Liam’s parents plot his kidnapping, Chris and Greg can do nothing to keep him safe without the help of Chris’s new friend, Agent Samuel Graves.

Samuel is all about the job, but he craves a connection like Liam, Chris, and Greg have. When Sam meets Hudson Radcliff, he’s thrown off balance with attraction. His normally cool demeanor is set aflame with lust and need. Hudson and Sam burn for each other, but their passion is tested when everyone is put in danger.

Chris, and Greg fight Liam’s demons after they are reunited, but Liam’s parents won’t give up without a fight. Three men together may challenge people, but Liam, Chris, and Greg will fight to the end for their love.

Recent Release Spotlight with Sara York

We are here today to talk about Bonded 2. What can you tell us about it? Bonded was born in the Goodreads MM group free read event. The free reads event is awesome, but there just isn’t always enough time to finish a full book. Bonded 2 is the follow up to Bonded, completing Greg, Liam, and Chris’s story.

Tell us more about our main characters? Out of the three, I think Liam is my favorite character. He’s damage, his past has been difficult, and he’s in a load of pain when Greg finds him. Greg only wants what’s best for Liam, and that is where Chris comes into the picture. Chris is lost, but not damaged when he meets Greg and Liam. The three characters really do need each other, and in Bonded 2 they find out how much more they really need each other.

What about In the Bonded 2 makes you the proudest? I love the dynamics between the men. They each grow so much in the process of coming together to become a family.

Do you have plans to write more BDSM in the future? How did you research the lifestyle? I would like to go deeper into a BDSM book. Bonded 2 focused more on the relationship of the sub and Dom than the mechanics. I’ve read on the subject, chatted with people, and done general research.

Do you take a break from a first draft to get distance from it, or dive right into editing, or edit heavily as you write? I try to take a short break between editing passes. I like to give myself time to forget parts of the book.

If you could give one piece of advice to aspiring writers, what would it be? Never give up. The process of writing a book is difficult and then there are the edits. If you take one chunk at a time it’s easier to manage.

What are you reading right now and what is next on your to-be-read list? I’m currently reading Secret by Kindle Alexander. The next book on my Kindle is A Spirit Without Boarders by Andrew Grey.

Excerpt

Liam shook his head as he stared open mouthed at Agent Sam Graves. The agent nodded his head, so Liam looked to Greg then finally Chris.

“But I can’t.” He held out one hand to Greg then the other to Chris. “They’re both my husbands, and I can’t choose one.”

“I can understand how you feel, but your parents are fighting with everything they have. If they can get a judge to rule in their favor, you’ll be forced to undergo some sort of examination to determine your mental state. And trust me when I say they’ll probably pick a doctor who will find something wrong with your life. Few people understand what you, Greg, and Chris have. To make it worse, they’re also threatening legal action for your attack on your mom.”

“I didn’t attack her. She shoved me and then I reached out to keep from falling. I didn’t even really touch her. I might have brushed my arm against hers as I tried to keep from hitting the floor, but I didn’t do anything.”

“Marry either Greg or Chris and they’ll be your closest relative. Your parents will have no say in your life and no judge will force you to undergo a mental evaluation based on their insistence. If you have a spouse, then your spouse has the say in your life, not them. We could probably get through this without you getting married, but there is a slim chance your dad will use your past drug use against you and have a judge declare you mentally incompetent. It’s a long shot, but it will be impossible for them to have control if you have a spouse.”

“But I can’t be married to just one of them.” Liam felt like the world was closing in on him. How could he choose? Greg was the man who had saved him from himself, and Chris was his perfect lover. All three of them were intertwined so intricately that marrying one would be impossible.

“Liam,” Greg dropped to his knees in front of him, his beautiful brown eyes revealing his soul. “I love you more than life itself.”

He reached out and cupped Greg’s cheek. This man had made such a huge difference in his life. How could he say no to his proposal? His heart ached and he felt like it was breaking. He loved Greg, but he loved Chris too. How could he choose? But how could he say no to Greg?

“I love you so much, Greg.” Tears burned the back of his eyes, and he was powerless against whatever Greg wanted. Not because Greg lorded over him, but he loved the man so very much.

Greg licked his lips, and a smile played over his face. His eyes were bright, and Liam thought Greg looked better than ever before.

“I want you to marry Chris,” Greg said.

Liam pulled back, shocked by Greg’s words. “What?” He couldn’t have heard Greg right. Didn’t Greg want him?
