Though single motherhood taught Christina Welch ruthless self-denial, in her heart she secretly craves a man who'll drive her wild in bed. Now that her son is spending the summer with his father, she can't keep her mind off the one man who haunts her dreams--her son's baseball coach.
Bryce Walker lusts after the sexy librarian who never missed her son's home games. Respect and caution held him back, but every time she peeks at him under her lashes, instinct tells him she needs what he has to offer.
When Bryce meets Christina by chance on her birthday, desire smolders hotter than the early summer heat wave. He buys her ice cream, but they both know only one thing will cool them down. As Bryce leads Christina into a world of sensual pain and pleasure, she discovers heights of emotion she never knew existed. She learns to trust Bryce with her body, but can she trust him with her heart? Summer doesn't last forever...
Are you in the mood for a steamy story that offers something outside of the norm? Then Bound To Surrender, a super-sexy novella that provides tons of heat but doesn’t skimp on the heart, might be what you’re looking for.
I connected with the heroine, Christina, right away. She’s a single mother who has placed her own desires and needs after those of her son. However, when her only child goes away for the summer with his father, she seizes the opportunity to experience sexual bliss with the object of her affection. What she doesn’t know is that Bryce will do more than fulfill her greatest fantasies. A dominant man who demands control, he brings out the submissive nature she’s kept hidden for far too long. Their chemistry is fantastic and, because of their very real interactions with one another, the intimate/sexual scenes positively sizzle. As a bonus, Bound to Surrender doesn’t fall into the trap in which sex is amped up to replace emotion. Both protagonists have reasons to fear a commitment, yet, cannot deny the mutual attraction they share. As they continue pushing boundaries, they start to see what they long for most in each other.
Those who seek out hot BDSM novellas with strong elements of romance will enjoy Bound To Surrender. This is the second story I’ve read by Ms. Lamont, and I’m eagerly awaiting more from her in the future.
