In the bright light of morning, will the night have revealed too much or not enough?
Gillian Daniels keeps a secret buried deep in her heart—she craves an erotic spanking. When a friend’s wedding reunites her with the man who first ignited her fantasies, she can no longer deny her desire. Though Gillie has been friends with Eric Kerr since high school, she knows he'll never settle down. She's certain, however, that for one night, he'd be willing to make her darkest desires come true.
Eric has wanted Gillian in his bed and in his life for longer than he cares to remember. But she throws him a hell of a curve ball—she wants him to spank her. The idea makes him hot and ready, but contrary to Gillie’s belief, he’s never been involved in the lifestyle before.
In the bright light of morning, will their bond be strong enough for Gillie to trust?
“I want you in me, Eric. But more than that, I want you on top of me, I want you to take command of me…I want you to pull me over your knee…” she took a deep breath, “…and spank me.”
When Gillian asks her oldest friend Eric for her deepest wish, Eric’s surprised but willing to apply himself. Both Gillie and Eric are new to domination and submission. But Eric loves Gillie so much he’s more than willing to learn. Likewise although Gillie fantasizes about a spanking, it’s only with Eric. And when Gillie and Eric get together they ignite the pages. The main sex scene is incredible. I felt hot and was blushing reading this scene. And yes this scene is hot, but you also sense a trust developing between the two candidates.
As hot as this book was, I missed the character development. Of the 58 pages of the book, 28 of it was the main sex scene not to mention sex play that occurred outside the main scene. I was new to the South Jersey Heat Wave series, and Bound to Ignite is book 3 so I got a bit lost as to what was happening. It took me awhile to pick up on the premise of the books, so I'd say they don't stand alone well. Perhaps a prologue could have helped a newcomer catch up on the fun.
Still, I really did enjoy this book. I loved Eric’s willingness to try something he'd never done before. It was rather cute that he was surfing the Internet for the hour before Gillie showed up to learn how to spank. He cares so much for her that he wants to do it right. I loved that Gillie had the courage to trust Eric with her deepest fantasy. It was also quite human that their first effort at spanking didn’t go as planned.
If you’re looking for a book with hot spanking and hotter sex, Bound to Ignite is sure to hit your fancy.
