Blurb:

Kyle’s best friend Marshall resurfaces and he’s in a lot of trouble. Can the men at Kiss of Leather convince a former Dom to take on the mouthy sub?

Master Derek and his new sub Corey have signed a contract and enjoy their first scene together. The love between them is strong and Derek is as protective of his boy as ever. The only thing left that would make their world perfect would be to bring Corey’s ex-Dom and abuser to justice.

The legal firm that represents Kiss of Leather is charged with hiring a private investigator to flush out the man who orchestrated Corey’s gang rape. Stone Manning is hesitant to take the job, though. He was once wrongly accused in the death of a sub and swore never to enter a BDSM club again. But he owes attorney Glen Sharp his life after the lawyer got him acquitted.

Their meeting is disrupted when Kyle’s missing friend Marshall calls for help. Master Josh promises to help the mouthy Marshall get back on his feet under one condition—Marshall must sign a six month D/s contract as a full-time sub and prove he can fully submit to a man as well as learn to respect those around him.

Stone Manning suddenly finds himself charged with taming the brattiest sub ever. In truth, the bigger the brat, the more his heart races with excitement. Marshall promises to be just the type of challenge to inspire Stone to be a Master again. As Stone learns more about him, he sees the pain that Marshall has always tried to numb with drugs and alcohol. Stone also sees a man he could love—if he can ever reach him.

In the meantime, Stone and his investigative partner, Chuck, continue to search for Corey’s attacker. The abusive Dom appears to have gone underground. But what they don’t realize is that the closer they get to their prey, the more dangerous he becomes.

Reader Advisory: This book contains references to drug and alcohol abuse.

My View:

Bondage takes us back to the men at Kiss of Leather and gives us an intimate look at where they are up to in their lives. The club is still not open to the public and the three Doms who own it are juggling the renovations, the ever looming opening date and the lives of their subs pretty well.

Master Derek is determined to help in any way possible with the recovery of his damaged sub and the two men have made great strides but still have a long way to go. To help with tracking down Tony, the rogue Dom who hurt Corey they hire a Private Investigator and this is how we meet Master Stone.

Stone Manning was wrongly accused in the death of a sub a few years ago and since that fateful night he has avoided the BDSM scene completely. His intention of never retuning to the lifestyle is quickly turned on its head when he enters Kiss of Leather and is pulled by to his old life by the smell of leather alone. Added to that is the fact that his meeting is interrupted when Kyle’s old friend Marshall calls to be rescued and by the end of the night he finds himself taking home the brattiest sub in the world.

Underneath Marshall’s snark and brat like behaviour is a man who is extremely vulnerable. He is so sure that he doesn’t deserve to be loved that he hasn’t stopped playing up long enough to realise that people really do care. He is a minefield of confused emotions that Stone has to tread carefully around with whilst trying to build up his self-esteem.

Stone is determined to do the job right and refuses to let Marshall use sex in the way he has previously, in fact their sexual relationship is non-existent until almost the end of the book. Marshall’s and Stone’s story is about recovery and building trust whilst at the same time trying to find a rogue Dom and make sure he can never hurt another sub.

Morticia has also dropped in a couple of other characters in to this story that I am sure we will be seeing more of in the future and I look forward to the series continuing.
