Review: Bondage Anniversary (Desired Discipline #1) by Tori Carson

Can bondage save a marriage? Once Nick uncovers Laura’s hidden desire for BDSM, there’s no going back. Laura craves his touch, but Master Nick wants more than her body. He demands her total submission.

Laura can only find the excitement she so desperately craves between the covers of the latest BDSM novel she reads alone in their bed. Then one night Nick, her loving, cater-to-her-every-whim, vanilla sex husband discovers her hidden library. To her everlasting surprise, he decides their anniversary getaway is the perfect time to turn her fantasies into reality.

Before he can put his plan into action, Nick must figure out how to tell his wife she’s actually married to a Dom. More than that, Nick is also part owner of DiscipliNation, a successful chain of kink clubs and an erotic toy manufacturing company. Can he dominate his lovely ‘ballbreaker of the boardroom’ wife—while keeping his balls intact?

Laura’s treacherous body revels in Nick’s domination. As a natural submissive, she thrives under his strict, unyielding command. He trains her to respond to his every touch and the line between pain and pleasure blurs— so much pleasure, she’s lost in it. Laura craves his firm hand, yet his sin of omission shakes her trust. She willingly offers her body, but guards her heart. Quickly, she learns Master Nick isn’t just a hotter-than-hell, leather clad, flogger wielding alter ego. Dom isn’t a role he slips on like a mask. It runs in his blood, defines his personality and once unleashed, there’s no going back. Master Nick won’t play at D/s. The gift of her body isn’t enough. He demands her total submission.

#NotChilled

A twist from the more usual fare of long married couples seeking an outside influence to rekindle their flame: in this story the couple works to bring the spark back in their bedroom.

Laura leaves her eReader out, and Nick takes a peek. Imagine his surprise when his normally quiet and reserved wife has an eReader full of BDSM erotica.  And when your business empire is BDSM and adult toys, you just might have the solution to the blahs in your bedroom.

Tori Carson manages to craft a couple in a way that shows both their feelings for one another, and their frustrations with one another: secret lives and passions that are unshared, with several elements that could utterly destroy the trust between them that has built over the years.  But their secret lives and desires are revealed in such a way as to enhance their relationship, even if many of us would find that hard to relate to.

Laura takes to the submissive role quite quickly, showing her actual trust in Nick, and while she is quick to respond and submit, her persona outside the bedroom seems to come into full color: she is sharper and sassier.  I could see the brightening of her personality as the walls between the two of them started to crumble, and they started to share more of their secret desires.

Nick was more difficult for me to appreciate: how can you hide your business empire from your wife, someone you claim to love and care for all those years? Communication is key in any relationship, and even more integral in a D/s relationship.  That was the only piece of the story, the willingness to trust fully in Nick, which felt off to me. As a Dom, Nick was both patient and well informed: neither too harsh nor shocking, but cognizant of Laura’s whims and pleasure.

An interesting and often steamy exploration of a D/s relationship between a couple of long standing although this diversion is a relatively new one.   Penned with an awareness of both a relationship and the lifestyle, this story was a unique read and full of surprises.
