Bound to SubmitBound to Submit by Laura Kaye

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG! I just finished this book in one sitting on a plane. I LOVE this book and the characters HARD! It’s an erotica combined with a beautiful second chance love story of a slightly broken heroine and an alpha hero.

Kenna always wanted to be a submissive. She belonged to an exclusive BDSM club where she met Griffin who was her master for a year. Kenna starts to develop feelings for Griffin beyond the sub and Dom relationship but Griffin is young and makes the biggest mistake of his life – he lets her go.

“Finding you again was the luckiest thing that ever happened to me.”

Five years pass. Kenna returns to town a different person – a wounded Marine who lost one of her arms but that is not the only thing. Kenna lost her best friend, her care free spirit and her confidence. She suffers pain physically and mentally, strutting along surviving on a disability bill and gives unenthusiastic motivational speeches. She feels anything but motivated in her current life. When Kenna returns to Blasphemy she has one goal – to numb her pain, to forget and to feel good again. Griffin is a sexy Dom at Blasphemy. He has been living with regrets that he lost the only person he ever loved. He’s been looking for Kenna but in vain. So when Griffin lays eyes on the beautiful Kenna in the audience for the first time in 5 years he is flabbergasted. It’s like seeing a ghost from the past, but this ghost has completely grown up and is more beautiful than ever. But something has changed about Kenna – she is more closed off, broken, distant. Griffin knows he has been given a second chance at love. This time he is determined never to let her out his sight ever again. There will be a hard road ahead but Griffin is up for the challenge of breaking her walls down.
Bound to Submit is not just about a BDSM romance between a man and a woman. This story is also about a broken heroine who is dealing with the guilt and shame of being the lone survivor with her best friend dead. She does not think she deserves to live a happy life. Griffin also changes over the year. He is sexy as ever but he is more mature. He turns out to be a caring and loving man – the only one that can help heal her heart.

“I realized that I never stepped. I’ve been in love with you for so long that I don’t know how not to love you.”

I am a huge fan of Laura Kaye’s writing. Since the moment I read the first page I was captivated and sucked into the story until the end. The chemistry between Kenna and Griffin is scorching hot. The storyline is simple and to the point without too many distractions. Bound to submit is sexy, sensual and sizzling with role playing, rope, and binding – no doubt about that. But it is also a beautiful, emotional, angsty, heart-warming story of survival, healing and unconditional love. It’s beyond what I expected of the BDSM genre. This is the first book of the Blasphemy series and I CANNOT WAIT to see what is next. Bound to Submit is such an easy, fast paced, sweet, sexy read guys! I highly recommend.

5 Blazing Stars!!!!
