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
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
I've heard that there may be a third story, I'd so jump on top of that book now!
originally read Oct. 13, 2009, re-read March 13, 2011
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 dras...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
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
Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.
- This story is a nice progression from the one before it (Bound by Deception). The characters’ personalities are consistent between stories but have evolved as a result of their relationship, and Oliver and Vincent struggle with the sorts of problems I would expect to have arisen in the past 6 months since they first got together.
- Oliver’s sit...more
Vincent is incredibly satisfied with the relationship. He thinks everything is perfect between himself and Marsden.
Oliver is happy to be with Vincent but he can't help but feel that he comes last in Vincen't life. Vincent can't even be bothered to show up on time for their "dates", well as close to dates as they could have then, lol. Not to mention that as soon as he is done having sex with Oliver, Vincent is out the door with hardly a...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
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
(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
[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
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

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
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.
