Review: Bonds of Denial (Wicked Play #5) by Lynda Aicher

It's been twenty years since Rockford Fielding's father punished him for kissing another boy. Now a grown man with a military career behind him, Rock continues to deny his true desires, even while working security at The Den, the most decadent sex club in town. But after a year of watching gorgeous Carter Montgomery come and go on the arms of other men, Rock can no longer resist the cravings he's denied for so long.

Carter has just four months left on his contract with an escort agency, and he doesn't know whether to feel relieved or afraid. Being an escort is all he knows. Adding to his confusion is the way his latest client, the sexy but stoic Rock, makes him feel things he hasn't wanted in years.

One charmingly awkward date turns into two and soon the men are meeting off the clock. But with Rock in the closet and Carter unsure how to pursue a real relationship, how can they build a future both in and out of the bedroom?

I could not put Bonds of Denial down. When I absolutely had to stop reading this book I could not wait to get back to it. Lynda Aicher is a totally new author to me. I will definitely be reading more of her books! She has created two remarkable characters here that will be with me for a long time.

Bonds of Denial is such an appropriate name for this book. Carter and Rock are both in denial about certain things in their life. It’s these things that bring them together in the first place. Carter is excellent at his profession. It is no shock to him when a new client requests him specifically. Rock knows more about Carter than Carter knows. Rock’s job allows him to know a few things about Carter that he probably shouldn’t, but it these things that convince Rock that Carter is perfect for what he needs in his life. Together they embark on a journey of self-discovery and emotional healing. The overall sweetness of their budding relationship was sweet on a level I was not expecting from them.

I have to admit I have not read any of the other books in the Wicked Play series. I most likely won’t either. BDSM books just simply aren’t my thing. The only BDSM element in this installment in the series is that Rock works there and Cater has a client that pays him to be of service there. Any reader can easily go into this book and thoroughly enjoy it without having read the others in the series. All of the couples and trio from the previous books have small cameo roles that will whet your appetite into finding out what their books entailed.
