Evelyn Morgan has a secret. Donavan Carver wants to expose it. Bondage, debauchery, and a weekend at Eden lands one of them on their knees.
For years, Eve has craved sexual domination, but a kinky romp in the hay isn't worth destroying her prestigious legal reputation over. Even if that romp’s with her handsome rival and legendary Dominant, Donavan Carver. Desperate to protect her secret and keep the notorious playboy at bay, Eve clings to the lie she’s told for two years—she’s a Domme. Donavan doesn’t buy it. Given an opportunity to put Donavan’s doubts to rest, Eve lures him into a bet he can’t win--one that will tether him to her leash. So what if she cheats to win? He’ll never find out. Or will he?
I do believe that this “vanilla girl” will put Master Carver on her list of Top Three Fantasy Doms!! Let me just say…he had the perfect combination of domination and playfulness. He is divine!!
Hard-nosed and strong willed, Evelyn Morgan is an amazing attorney. She has to work harder and be tougher to make it in the world of law. But inside is a woman who wants to be taken, ravished and owned. To keep her image of the tough talented attorney, she cannot allow that weaker side of herself to show, so she has perpetuated a little white lie that she is a Domme.
Donavan Carver has been her nemesis and fantasy since law school. Donavan is perfection. Tall, lean and built like a Greek God. He also doesn’t believe for one second that Eve is a Mistress. He knows the signs of a submissive and he plans to prove that is exactly what Eve is. Too bad one little harmless bet backfired on him and now he is to be her slave for the weekend…or is he?
This story just goes to prove, never make a bet with a Dom. They will always find a way to turn it around and that is exactly what Donavan does. Together they share a revolutionary weekend. They discover things about each other that change them forever. All too soon, they both realize that though they may work well together in the bedroom, they may not work so well together out in the real world.
I absolutely inhaled this story. Non-stop heat and chemistry pulled me in. I couldn’t get enough of their heat and I devoured this book in one sitting. One cold shower later and I was researching Ms. Raines’ other works and then started the whole process over again. Legally Bound is not the first book set at the BDSM club, Eden. Eve’s best friend’s story is told in Welcome to Eden, a delightfully sinful short story. Another short story set at Eden is Pure Sin. It’s about two employees and their battle of wills.
I would highly recommend Legally Bound. It would be a wonderful story for the beginner reader of BDSM and even the more experienced connoisseur. While it does show the more tender side of the lifestyle, you can’t help but be pulled into the romance and passion of these two people. I do believe that humor and a strong hand can make for an exciting exchange in the bedroom or dungeon and Ms. Raines does a fabulous job conveying both. So if you like your BDSM on the more tender side, with a splash of humor, pick up Legally Bound. You won’t be disappointed.
