Bound to Him (Bound #2)
Previous Book: Bound by Deception
Lord Vincent Prescot's life couldn't be better. Thriving investments, well-respected by his peers, and mind blowing sex with a man who submits to his every desire -- what more could he want?
Lord Oliver Marsden should be more than happy with his life. He's been in love with Vincent for over a decade and six...more
I was so anxious to read this book. Bound by Deception is one of my all time favorite books. I had fallen under Oliver and Vincent’s spell, and was so excited when I found out Ava was continuing their story. I felt like we had to wait forever until Bound to Him was released. After I read it, it was worth the wait! I don't want to spoil the book, so I'll tread as light as I can with this review.
Shhhh…I have a confessio ...more
Ms. March's writing was still pretty damn awesome.
Vincent and Oliver were still hot...
I am happy to say that Vincent's character improved for me. He definitely made leaps and bounds in accepting his preference for men and not being so ashamed of it. Also, he finally managed to stand up to his arsehole of a father.
But...but...there is always a
Vincent does finally admit the he has feelings for Oliver. However, it seems lik ...more
With this continuation, we get a deeper look into the relationship Oliver and Vincent have 6 months after they became lovers in Bound by Deception. We get a better look at the responsibilities Vincent takes on so he can earn respect from his father. How Vincent's decision, and his lack of accepting himself again, put ...more
Vincent and Oliver will have to be apart...
Yes... it's the start of this book. Vincent going back to London after some time away from Oliver.
I was stunned... that was my feelings for most of the book. Vincent is now so damn annoying with his adoration of his father! He will not only keep fighting against his "unaccepted" love for another man, but now will be in deeply shit (pardon my French, but it's true) being promised to married.
So, more drama, and now believe me there will be FINALLY a dr ...more
Oliver has been loving Vincent for years and he finally has him, but he's not satisfied with their relationship. He wants something more than sex, he wants his love to be acknowledged by Vincent, he wants Vincent to reciprocate his feelings. He therefore stands up against Vincent and voices his emotion. It's something I would have never expected from O ...more
Lord Oliver and Lord Vincent were in love, Lord Oliver deceived Lord Vincent but only for love, and at the end of the nov ...more
Because this is where Vincent finally realized how he felt for Oliver. This is where the 'power' shifted, so to speak. I noticed how Vincent always called Oliver, Marsden, in the first story and the beginning of this one -- but during the final act, when Vincent came to Oliver to tell him that he is not marrying Lady Julianna, Vincent referred to him as "Oliver". That scene just clicked to me, right there. It was no longer just one- ...more
Not that this is easy, or that all obstacles are quickly overcome. In fact, there are more in the second book than there were in the first, providing a real test for the two lovers.
Vincent is as infuriatingly idiotic as in the first b ...more
I loved Oliver!
I read book 1 Bound By Deception first then immediatley ordered and read this one. I'm not sure why they were released as two books. It would have made a perfect novel instead of 2 shorter books.
Read them together and you shall not be disappointed.
Can't wait to read more from Ava March.

Bound series. So far there are 2 books, and one free short story, in this series. All three have the same main characters, Oliver and Vincent, in it.
Why I read the books:
Some of my blog friends read and reviewed these books, after they had caught my eye at th ...more
In this second installment, the reader is subjected to conflicting agendas and a possible end to a blossoming relationship between Oliver and Vincent. Ms. March does an excellent job of ...more
I'll admit I was concerned going into this. I loved book one and was one of the many begging for more, but what often happens to me is that I just can't bear to see my characters HEA ruined and I don't want more conflict. But this was the perfect amount. The fact that it was a novella helped because it didn't drag on. They hit a very realistic bump in the ro ...more
(view spoiler)[It was so beautiful seeing Vicent standing up his father for Oliver... And Oliver was right. Vicent had to love him to have him. (hide spoiler)]
I really like Ava's way of writting. It's not overdescribing, but you can perfectly see yourself with Oliver and Vicent. And I love the jade pin that Oliver always wears!
(view spoiler)[I just felt really sorry for Vicent when his dad oficially showed him that he doesn't care for him ;--; Luckyly, Oli ...more

I've heard that there may be a third story, I'd so jump on top of that book now!
Oliver is easy to like and he is comfortable with himself and who is is.
[spoiler ahead]I enjoyed reading about Oliver's feelings as well as Vincent's. And I found myself agreeing with each in turn, to the way they saw the world and how they had to act their part in society. There were several issues separating them: social status, social etiquette and expectancy, behavior and last but not least the courage to risk some things in order to gain what they wanted.
Although I enjoyed seeing Vincent as the dominan ...more
But I did love that both Oliver and Vincent ha ...more
It gets 4 instead of 5 stars because it, unlike the first book, was just too short and the development got ...more
But this story was well written, and the conflict was very believable. I spent the whole book wondering how she was going to get them to their HEA, it seemed pretty impossible. (They got there, don't worry. Or at least to an HFN.)
The only thing I didn't like was that Vincent was a total prick, but that was necessary to the story so I can't rea ...more
Oliver thought that being with Vincent was the only thing he wanted. But after a time he realises he needs more, a bit of commitment on Vincent’s side. When he finds out Vincent may be planning his marriage, Oliver sees how his relationship and his heart break at the same time…
Lord Oliver Marsden and Lord Vincent Prescot have been together for six months, and what once Oliver imagined as happiness, having a chance at being with Vincent, turns out to be not so ideal. Vincent insists on ...more
