This fourth and final installment of the Bound for Pleasure series picks up exactly where UNMADE leaves off. Ashley Black puts us right back in the action and the intensity is amazing. V and Gwen are in a bad situation and have been betrayed by the last person they would have ever imagined.
Gwen and V are rescued from the horrific situation, but that doesn't mean things are smooth sailing for the couple. Gwen knows she loves V, but she still has problems with V's needs. She hates that he continues to tie his creative ability to breath play. She just can't get on board with it. This issue puts them at odds multiple times and leaves her falling back on the lovely and wonderful Ben.
Ohhhhh, Ben! I love you. Even though you are the much smarter choice, Gwen just can't seem to let V go. Gwen struggles with her feelings for Ben. She loves him, just not in the same way as she loves V.
V understands that Gwen doesn't like his need to be strangled and attempts to save her from having to assist him. This doesn't turn out how he hopes and ends up sending Gwen running away. It doesn't look good for the couple. Especially with Ben always there for her to rely on.
Gwen and V have to find a way to be together. Neither are happy without the other. Compromises will have to be made, but who is going to be the one to give?...more
Ahhhh, Blake Mahone. Tough ass biker with a soft, mushy inside. His heart is so big - even if he doesn't want to admit it to himself or let others seeAhhhh, Blake Mahone. Tough ass biker with a soft, mushy inside. His heart is so big - even if he doesn't want to admit it to himself or let others see. He is an amazing dad to his son, Ash. Too bad the girl he thought he would spend his life with didn't care about him or their family as much as he thought. Lately, Jodi, his girlfriend of ten years has been disappearing for long periods of time and looking rougher and rougher as the days go by. Money keep disappearing from Blake's bank account and he knows she's into something bad. He's finally had enough when he comes home to find Ash home alone, dirty and hungry. When Jodi finally show up and he asks where she's been for the last two day she goes nuts. After telling her to get out and never come back, he hopes he never sees her again. But, as the saying goes, a bad penny always turns up.
Gabby Morgan is ready to start her first day as a Kindergarten teacher. She is excited and nervous, but ready to start this new part of her life. Finally, making some progress toward her goals after recovering from a horrifying experience as a result of a bad relationship, Gabby is ready to get on with it.
Gabby's first interaction with Blake isn't under the best circumstances. First of all, Ash shows up to her class late and then, Blake is late picking him up at the end of the day. When the loud motorcycle pulls up outside the school she doesn't expect Ash to go running for the sexy man riding it. She doesn't want to be attracted to this irritating man, but she can't help the feelings that run through her body as she looks at him. Over the next several days and weeks she has to continually wait for Black to show up to pick up Ash. He always promises never again, but he just can't seem to help it. Is this a man that she can count on?
Ash loves Gabby and is always trying to get her to come around to spend time with him and Blake. Blake can't seem to say no and always gives in to him. Eventually, Gabby is spending more and more time with them and falling deeper and deeper in love with both boys. But, remember that bad penny? It turns back up and causes A LOT of problems. Not only for Blake and Ash, but for Blake's motorcycle club, The Spartan Riders. And even worse, for Gabby because in addition to being a drug addict, a cheater, and a liar, she's also jealous.
I really enjoyed Blake and Gabby's story. It was a one-sitting read for me. As a former teacher and school librarian, I always love reading stories involving teachers falling in love with badass men. I appreciate a man that accepts that teaching is an important calling.
I can't wait for book two, METTLE, which is Country's story. It's due to come out later this year....more
