Review: Bound with Pearls (Atlanta BDSM #1) by Sidney Bristol

The last thing Christine wants to do is another favor for her sister, but Lucy always gets what she wants. This time it’s Chris playing sub to a demanding Dom. Their relationship begins with a power exchange and progresses to time spent between the sheets. Now emotions are getting complicated and the Dom isn’t just a hunky guy in black.

Daniel’s expectations are turned upside down when he meets Chris. She’s more than a well-trained submissive. She’s a woman with a body he wants to memorize. He’s willing to spend as much time as it takes to learn her, because she might be his match and his muse. He’ll make her come so hard he’s imprinted on every inch, and then he’ll offer her the most precious thing he can, himself.

Okay, I will admit it. While I liked the subject matter and enjoyed the blurb, the main reason I was excited to read Bound With Pearls was because of the cover. I loved the red hair, the pearls and the whole look with the whip and the restraint. It was all in such contrast to what you usually think of with pearls and I was intrigued.

The Good: Some of the best things in the book were the characters. I really could relate to and enjoy Christine and oh how I loved Daniel! They had depth and back-story and were realistic, believable characters with talents, skills and flaws. Their relationship began for all the wrong reasons but was based on mutual trust and chemistry. Their sizzle nearly leaped off each page, keeping me constantly interested in knowing my famous ‘What Happened Next?’ And the ending? It did not leave me hanging as can often be the case in erotic books. It did not wrap up the whole story and tie it with a bow in two seconds flat. It answered questions and yet made me want more. It was really quite well written.

The Bad: The only real negative was the way the situation was left with Christine’s bratty little sister Lucy. I really would have liked to see her get her comeuppance and have Christine be somewhat more vindicated than she was. Of course, that can certainly be cleared up in the next(?) book. 😉

The Snuggly: This book reminded me of another BDSM series that I thoroughly enjoy. The time spent at the Club and the beginning of the relationship could have gone very, very badly. However, there was so much immediate chemistry between Chris and Daniel that I was thrilled that it did not. Their play scenes were not demeaning or humiliating. Instead they were hot and very sensual. Their interaction outside of the club was that of two adults trying to find their way through the maze we call life and relationships. When they were together, it was tender and moving. Other times it was steamy and extremely erotic. I had a smile on my face a mile wide while I read it. As you can tell, this is an adults-only book.

The Rest: Maybe I was just in the mood for a really steamy, really romantic book but I absolutely loved Bound With Pearls. I was a little sad when I finished it because I was enjoying it so much. I will say again, this is an adult book with adult themes, not for the under 18 set. But if you love a hot romance and enjoy some erotica and BDSM too, then absolutely, positively plan on reading Bound With Pearls.
