Review: Bind Me Before You Go (Serve) by Harper Kincaid
A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
His heart is bound tighter than the bondage he craves...
Determined to put her past behind her, Cassidy Peyton moves to the Big Apple. But New York has a few dark secrets of its own, including Serve, an exclusive BDSM club. It's a place she isn't sure she's ready for, until she sees him watching her. Hot. Intent. Knowing. With eyes that leave her stomach tied in knots, because the loneliness he's trying to hide matches her own.
Security expert David Cavill has more secrets than any man should. Secrets that forever shut down any possibility of love, marriage, or family. Yet Cassidy draws him in, an intoxicating combination of strength, candor, and sensuality that David can't resist. But as their bond deepens, Cassidy must decide if she can love a man whose heart is bound tighter than the form of bondage he craves...

Bind Me Before You Go is Harper Kincaid’s addition to the Entangled Serve Series. It is a standalone, but some of the characters do overlap. I have read some of the books in that series by other authors, but this is my first read by Harper Kincaid.

David Cavill works as a security expert and is a Shibari rope master at a sex club called Serve. He’s asked to take one for the team and “babysit” a newbie’s friend while she goes through orientation. He is totally thrown off-guard when he meets the friend, Cassidy. She’s sexy as hell and their chemistry leaps off the pages! He asks her to fill out an application too-just in case- but really just wants to know if she would entertain his specialty. No use in getting worked up over nothing.

Cassidy is new to New York. Her roommate talks her into going to the sex club with her since she’s been approved and is itching to go, but doesn’t want to go alone. Cassidy tells herself one of the reasons she came to New York is to open up more and take chances with people-a vast difference from her upbringing. Once at Serve, she feels a bit out of sorts, but then Wham!, she meets David. Sex on a stick and his voice makes her melt. She decides to fill out the application just to continue talking with him. She can feel the sparks and wants to know more, so why not?

This was a pretty quick read that moved along at a fast pace. At times maybe a bit too fast. I was surprised that Cassidy would jump so quick when David didn’t really back up what he was selling her. He talks of mutuality and trust a lot in this book, and asks Cassidy to trust him, but doesn’t give her any back. He’s got some family issues and believes he isn’t good for anybody. His reasoning may be valid, but I didn’t like him being so hypocritical. They decide on a two week affair under the guise of Cassidy learning what she likes and wants. It’s also labeled as a BDSM book but there is only rope play involved. The scenes at Serve are very low key and not what you would expect. I liked the explanation of David’s Shibari and why he likes it so much. I found it interesting that David has a playroom at home but there is really no time spent there teaching Cassidy anything other than the Shibari. I was hoping for more diverse playing since that was the premise of the affair to begin with. I did like how David took care of her and did seem totally into and in tune with her during their scenes.

So would I recommend it? Yes. I enjoyed it even though it was predictable. I also think this is a great intro to kink book if you haven’t read that type of book before. I am looking forward to reading other books by Harper Kincaid, especially at Serve, as she has a real knack for writing. The rope scenes she’s written are very visual and I had no problem “seeing” what was taking place. Kudos!
