[Snapshot] Bonds of Need (en.)
‚Bonds of Need‘ by Lynda Aicher
Wicked Play # 2
When Kendra Morgan attends a party at an exclusive sex club, she’s not driven by mere curiosity. Hoping to prove she’s put the past behind her, Kendra must instead face up to needs she’s denied for too long. Despite her lingering fears, she can’t resist the temptation to play…
Deklan Winters has had his eye on his attractive neighbor for months, but only senses Kendra is no stranger to the BDSM scene when she walks into his club. And he can tell that’s not her only secret. What surprises him is his own overwhelming desire to give her what she craves—and to show her a side to the Dom/sub relationship she’s never known.
With Deklan’s guidance, Kendra begins to accept her forbidden needs and to recognize the fine line between pleasure and pain. But when her former Master returns to reclaim her, it will take all her courage—and all of Deklan’s love—to defy her past. (Source: Goodreads.com)
My thoughts about the book:
Actually, I had to read another book when I opened this one and I only wanted to take a short look into the first pages, which was a big mistake and not because it was so bad – on the contrary – but because after the first few pages I was immediately caught again into the story.
Although the couple Cali and Jake took a part in this book, they only appeared shortly, because this book now was about the second owner of the club. He is called Deklan and he lives in the same residential complex like Kendra – Cali’s friend. On one evening Kendra visits with two of her friends his club and at this evening it happens, that Deklan leads her through a scene in which she gets confronted with her violent past. But Deklan gets her out of her fear and her cocoon, right into a new perception and together they build up trust and safety.
I found the dynamic between the couple really great and I could feel the attraction between them from the first pages on, although they both acted coyly and were afraid of a firm relationship, for reasons which the reader finds out later in the course of the story.
Certainly, now there weren’t absolutely astonishing idioms and it was also a little foreseeable, but it has fulfilled all my expectations and I also got some – maybe not completely profound – but in exchange really sweet, nice, erotic reading hours, which made me happy and were exactly that what I have needed right then.
What I like at Aicher’s books, is that there are up and downs in it, but that you always now, from the first pages on, that in the end you’ll get your deserved Happy End – very good for my nerves, if you’re looking for something like that -> a Happy End, which leave you smiling. Is a little like with the Black Dagger books and although there were a few clichés in it and sometimes foreseeable, it has never disturbed me much, because I just liked the characters – I got a connection to them – and if this happens, nothing can go wrong. Often it is not logical why I like some books or don’t – it is often just a gut feeling and here I had a good one 🙂
So who would like to read a good erotic book, without supernatural beings, but in the genre ‘Contemporary Romance’, with a little BDSM in it, that I can highly recommend you this book/ series – but if you don’t like ‘harder scenes’ or BDSM then you should rather read a different book.
Cali: „I get it. I understand exactly what you mean.”
Kendra: “You do?”
Cali: “Yeah, I do. I struggled with that for years, thinking there was something wrong with me.”
Kendra: “And now?”
Cali: “And now I understand that something that feels so right and so good with Jake can’t be wrong.”
Deklan: „And there is nothing wrong with that. We all like different things. Some people hate chocolate or bacon. Can you believe that?“
She smiled at the look of complete disbelief on his face and swerve in conversation. Kendra: „No,“ she answered around a small laugh. “I can’t believe that.“
„Do you think they’re weird?“
She laughed again. „Yes.“
„Do you think they care what you think?“
„And will your opinion of them make them suddenly start liking chocolate?“
„Exactly,“ he said with triumph.
