His heart is bound tighter than the bondage he craves…
Determined to put her past behind her, Cassidy Peyton moves to the Big Apple. But New York has a few dark secrets of its own, including Serve, an exclusive BDSM club. It’s a place she isn’t sure she’s ready for, until she sees him watching her. Hot. Intent. Knowing. With eyes that leave her stomach tied in knots, because the loneliness he’s trying to hide matches her own.
Security expert David Cavill has more secrets than any man should. Secrets that forever shut down any possibility of love, marriage, or family. Yet Cassidy draws him in, an intoxicating combination of strength, candor, and sensuality that David can’t resist. But as their bond deepens, Cassidy must decide if she can love a man whose heart is bound tighter than the form of bondage he craves…
BIND ME BEFORE YOU GO is a quick little BDSM-ish read. I say BDSM-ish because while there are a couple of scenes in a BDSM club, there’s not a whole lot of BDSM going on, apart from the Shibari rope bondage. I’m not familiar with Shibari, but it sounded like the author did her homework and she explained it fairly well. When David was explaining the purpose behind it, about how it binds you to your partner which in turn binds them to you, I found it interesting and sweet.
Because of how quickly the story moves and the gaps in time, I didn’t really feel a connection between David and Cassidy. Both of them have their issues, but where Cassidy is open to the possibility of love, David has closed himself off. He insisted she trust him and open up about her past, but he never offered her the same courtesy. Because of all his past relationships, when Cassidy declared her love for him, he rejected it and hurt her in the process.
BIND ME BEFORE YOU GO is told in dual POVs and while it’s part of the Serve series, it can be read as a stand-alone. It comes with a nice HEA for David and Cassidy, and I’d classify it as an insta-love given the story’s short time frame.
