Description from book:
Bound by Fantasy.
Everyone thinks small town Katie Long is a good girl looking for tender romance. All she needs is to find the right man. Katie couldn’t agree more.
She, too, has always fantasized about the “right man.” But what she’s looking for is one who’ll give her exactly what she wants. And everything she needs.
Bound by Desire.
Joe Carson is that man. A security guard at a local casino, he’s the answer to her sensual prayers. but there’s more to Joe than even Katie realized. And more to their night games than just master and slave.
Now Katie wonders just how far she’ll go with a man who’s more than ready to take her . . .
Katie Long has a thing for Joe Carson. One day at work, she pleasures herself for Joe on the security camera at work. Unsurprisingly, this leads to a more intimate encounter where Katie promises to be Joe’s – to do anything he wants. Thus, evolves a d/s relationship between the two. Of course, there are problems – Katie’s desire to leave her small home town behind her, a thief who is stealing money from the casino and the fact that Katie’s mom has a new boyfriend – Katie’s ex-lover.
I thought Joe was the best part of this book – he is remote, taciturn and dominant. Yet, he loves Katie. Sadly, it takes Katie much longer to realize her feelings for Joe. But, I can forgive her for that – since she does admit that she needs Joe. Here’s hoping it all works out for them!
