Christine is the nice sister, the one who takes responsibility for everything and does things for everyone except herself. When Lucy, the not-so-nice sister, asks her for yet another outrageous favor in a long line of never-returned favors, Christine knows she should say no and hang up the phone. But when Lucy promises to finally give Christine their dead mother’s pearls in return for her help, Chr

My Review:

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 a

Bound with Pearls is the first book in a series by Sidney Bristol. I chose this book because the summery sparked my interest. I have read one of Sidney Bristol’s other books and loved it.

Christine is a unattached sub that is no longer in the scene because she does not want to compete with her sister. Her sister Lucy who tries to one up anything that Christine does.

What can I say? I love a great book with angst, family drama and some hot sex. In this book you get all three wrapped up in a nice string of pearls.

Chris is a character that really resonates and if you have a sibling that has gotten on your nerves at all then you can really identify. Lucy, Chris's sister, has put her in a horrible position-if she wants her mother's pearls, she has to go and meet for a play date with an unknown Dom. OMG! What would you do? Christ reluctantly does it, but really

This book made me want to read everything written by Sidney Bristol. I loved it. When forced to make a deal with her sister to save her mother's pearls, Christine has no idea the consequences of her actions. As she meets the master who won a submissive in a poker game, Christine sets up her limits which she begins to regret as she grows closer to her Dom, Daniel for the evening. As they bond during their time together, Christine takes him up on his offer to accompany him home for the night. As t ...more

Bound with Pearls was a sexy and engaging read for me. I really like the way Sidney Bristol balances the sexual scenes with the rest of the story. I found myself really liking Chris and Daniel. From beginning to end, you can see their relationship progress and deepen. It felt natural, not forced like in some other stories. The family drama also adds conflict to the story. Chris is such a sweet person, I couldn't believe her sister was so horrible to her. She reminds me of those selfish, vapid pe ...more

I'm really bad at reviews but I had to do it for this book. It was amazing, great, wonderful, hot,emotional and just about everything else and then some! I loved it from beginning to end! Did I mention it was HOT!?!? Because it was HOT! I love Sidney Bristols books, all of them and can't wait to read anything she writes. I would recommend this without hesitation.

I really enjoyed this book. I thought the hero Daniel was exceptional hot. I loved how he pushed Christine's boundaries. I kind of wish Lucy would have got her comeuppance but on the other hand I know several "Lucys" in real life and they definitely never see how wrong they are. I enjoyed everything about the story overall, definitely adding this book to my keeper list. Highly recommend!
