Boring.

It was okey, but a bit boring. ( )

Wow. What to say about this book? I was expecting steam. Heck, just look at the cover, and you know there aren't going to be fade-to-black or closed-door sex scenes, and you can pretty much gather that said sex scenes won't be same-old, same-old either.

What you might not expect, particularly if, like me, you're new to this author, are realistic characters and emotional depth, but they're there.

Katie Long is a good girl with the soul of a bad girl. She's working in a casino in a small town, where everyone knows her, and she feels trapped. Her overriding goal in life is to save up enough money to escape to the city where she can finally be herself.

Meanwhile, she has her eye on the sexy new security guard at the casino: Joe Carson. In a fit of daring, she gives him a show on the security monitor, and starts an intense, exciting, D/s sexual relationship with him.

At least it starts out as just sex, until they both find themselves falling in love, and their emotional goals and their practical goals start to collide.

Bound does a lovely job of portraying Katie, and showing how a person can be sexually submissive without being weak or ineffectual outside the bedroom--or even inside it. It also does a lovely job of showing Katie's character change--the traditional but no less true plot of discovering what you really want.

The ending is very satisfying. No giving up of one's goals for a new sexual relationship, no inexplicable and convenient character changes. I was happy for Katie and the end, and confident that she'd be happy too.

I'll definitely be looking for more books by Sasha White. ( )

Katie Long hates small town life and is planning to get out. She's fantasizing about Joe Carson, the new security guard at the Casino and the catches his eye by masturbating for him while he watches on the camera...

Erotica is the first person is always difficult but Bound started out well enough, I read the first 30 pages in the book shop. Katie is a fine narrator, Joe not as clearly developed but we are seeing him through her eyes and hampered by her ignorance. The relationship progresses nicely, with sex and nuance. But then the entire book - plot and characterisations - fell down in the last third, which felt incredibly rushed. Huge issues were introduced and then swept away and the ending came way too quickly. I would read this author again, but hope she gets a better edit next time. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425212742, Paperback)

Bound by fantasy.

Everyone thinks small town Katie Long is the 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 realizes. And more to their nightgames 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...
