Lena is about to discover pleasure in the things she can't control.
To get even with her roommate for dragging her to a sports bar on a Friday night, Lena begins flirting with the handsome stranger who sits at the bar next to her. Their anonymous conversation leads to a shared cab ride, but Lena's conscience puts a damper on the evening--leaving the near-fling to become a memory. Until she finds him roaming the halls of the school where she teaches.
Will she submit to his desires?
Eric's only reason for returning to his hometown is to care for his recently orphaned nephew. He knew the return would involve dredging up his past with family and friends, but he didn't expect a lone girl to capture his interest and offer an escape within his new life.
Will his binds be enough to keep her?
NAUGHTY MOM REVIEW
Bound and Unbroken was a well written romance with just a touch of BDSM.
Lena meets Eric in a bar. They each feel drawn to the other and after an amazing kiss in a shared cab ride, they can't stop thinking about each other and Eric is persistent in keeping Lena around so he can get to know her. As her learns more about her life and past, he uses his skill as a Dom by using his need for control to help her overcome the painful memories she's kept with her since she was young. Of course, if it were me, I'd be willing to use the smallest nightmare as an excuse to have a sexy Dom tie me up and do naughty things to me.
There was great chemistry between Lena and Eric with only a touch of drama in the story. It wasn't over the top which worked quite well for the story. Being that the story provides POV from both Lena and Eric to allow us to see more of the story. My preference would have been if the POVs were written in the 1st person but Skye Callahan did a good job showing us how Lena and Eric were feeling in their situations.
All in all this was a good book. For those interested but wary of BDSM or Dom/submissive relationships but are unsure, in my opinion, I think this book would be a good intro to that genre since it's a "light" amount for the genre.
