** Bind Me is an erotic romance short story for ADULTS ONLY! This novelette is roughly 6600 words and contains light BDSM scenes between a curious woman and her very dominant male roommate. **
Lily had a suspicion her new roommate was the type to always take control, no matter what the situation. It wasn’t until she accidentally peeked in on Chaz dominating another woman, that her suspicions were realized. Lily watched with amazement as Chaz masterfully played the female like a sensual instrument, bringing her the most intense gratification Lily had ever witnessed.
After witnessing his sexual expertise from a distance and noticing the careful attention he gives to his lovers, Lily wanted nothing more than to have his hands sculpt every inch of her body. Unable to forget the incredibly erotic scene Chaz so skillfully played out, Lily sought to make her desires known by casually submitting to him throughout their daily lives.
To her excitement, Chaz invites Lily to his prestigious art show opening at a local gallery. All it takes is a slinky dress, a pair of kitten heels, and a tiny scrap of lace to drive Chaz wild, causing some very heated moments.
Rene Folsom, author of contemporary and paranormal, lives in Florida with her husband and three kids. She has officially diagnosed herself with creative ADD and often has a million and one writing projects going at once. In addition to writing, she is also a graphic artist who enjoys creating custom book covers for indie authors. She is definitely an artist at heart and would love nothing more than to be elbow deep in clay during her waking hours.
Rene believes that all fiction is based on some form of reality—otherwise we would never have the inspiration or knowledge to dream up the realistic situations we portray with our words. She is proud to say that her personal experiences have been inspirational, though perhaps not always identical to that of her fictional characters. Where reality and fantasy diverge, however, must remain her little secret…
Kind of a stretch to call this a "romance." I'd term it more a "sex scene in book form." Because that's all it is. It doesn't even earn novella status in my mind because there's no story involved. There's the setup of a sex scene and a sex scene.
Maybe I'm being hopelessly girly, but I like a little plot with my porn. And, frankly, I like a little more actual D/s with my D/s.
As someone acquainted with the BDSM lifestyle, I always get a bit giddy when an author gets it right. Most of the relationships aren't just about domination and pain like some books try to convince you of *cough* Fifty Shades of Terrible *cough* and Bind Me got it right.
Chaz and Lily are roommates but when Lily accidently walks in on Chaz and another girl, she realizes she wants more than a platonic relationship with him. What's more, she wants what he had going on with the other girl. Lily slowly starts changing her behavior around him to make sure Chaz gets the hint about what she wants from him and boy does he!
Bind Me is written by someone that obviously understands that there are more sides to an alternative sexual relationship than is usually portrayed. Author Rene Folsom delivers a story that draws the reader in, even if this isn't the type of book they usually go for. Well written and sensually graphic, Bind Me ends with you imagining what happens after Chaz and Lily go home for the night.
Disclosure: I received this book in exchange for an honest review and I'm happy I did. Due to the author's wonderful way with words, it has prompted me to go on and purchase more of her work.
let me just say you well need a cold shower after this, or a hot man! This book is HOT I mean HOT. Rene Folsom knows how to right them hot, the only thing I dislike about these books is that they end. this is a quick steamy read that will get you going and when you are done you will need a cigarette, even if you don't smoke. They may have only been roommates for a short time but with an encounter like theirs they won't (or at least I wouldn't) be seeing much of each other with clothes. Seriously who needs them any way, a pair of sexy laced panties should be all they ever need. Oh my gravy, I love them hot and to the point sometimes, a quick so to speak. Who doesn't? If you aren't into erotic reads stop now. However Rene, again my husband says thank you.
I was given the opportunity to preview this story by Rene Folsom and all I can say is HOT, HOT, HOT!! I loved her first story in the series Heart Me, but this one was right up my alley!! Her grasp of the tease and the sub/dom play is phenomenal!! Pulling the string of sexual tension, tighter and tighter until it finally breaks, delivering a fulfilling “climax” to the reader… sorry, I got distracted This is a Great, Sexy, Steamy story (alliteration aside)… Go Get it on it’s release!! LOL… sorry for the pun
Again, Ms. Folsom doesn't let me down!! She has a way with words that jump into the deep end of the pool without being grossly erotic, yet using squirmy scenes that made me want to have the whole collection for those special times when a short little book is needed;).
This one features some very light BDSM, just enough to whet your appetite and want to be dominated, but not much more.
Without giving away anything, just read this story, you'll see how well Ms. Folsom weaves a tale of damn near perfect sex.
I very much enjoyed this short story. It was very light BDSM, which is much more my cup of tea. I would have loved this story to continue, or at least have been longer. But for what it was, it was good.
It was a quick read. Kept me interested and reading the entire time. I liked both characters. Loved that Chaz was an artist -- something about working with his hands to create something so unique and personal is a very hot attribute ;)
The second installment of 'Roommate Romance' Rene Folsom brings you 'Bind Me'
Would you love to be dominated, or have you thought about letting someone dominate you? Lily has and it has overtake her thoughts.
After accidentally...or maybe it wasn't, walking in on her roommate Chaz dominating a woman in his room has turned Lily's life upside down. Watching him play his tied up submissive like a fine instrument, skillfully knowing how to handle her and not only bringing his submissive, but Lily to enjoyable gratification.
Since watching Chaz that night, Lily has not forgotten about Chaz's other side and comes to the decision to submit to him during their daily activity's, to show him she can be a submissive.
Finally the night has come and Chaz invites Lily to be his date to his gallery openings. Has all her hard work paid off? In a black dress helping to show off her assets, a pair of kitten heels and a pair of black lace panties, she is ready to be what he needs.
Being on the arm of one of the best looking men in the place, Lily cant help but think of the way she submitted to Chaz in the dark basement of the art gallery just a hour ago. Replaying the way he played her body so perfectly and used her black lace panties to tie her hands and dominate her. Being dominated was way better then she could have ever thought.
'Bind Me' is a sexy and steamy novella, that I enjoyed to the very end. Author Rene Folsom uses her words so perfectly to make you feel like your right there and have you fanning yourself off. This is a great short read that will make you want more from Mrs.Folsom and the Roommate Romance. I can honestly say I wanted more of Chaz and Lily, I could see them two becoming their own full length book...HINT HINT! So if you want a sexy, hot, steamy short read, this is definitely it.
WARNING: This book deals with adult M/F SUB/DOM RELATIONSHIP
"Bind Me" is the second in Rene Folsom's Roommate Romance series. I received this book as a gift from the author in exchange for my honest review. Having read other books in this genre I will tell potential readers that this is really light BDSM and not likely to push a new reader into an uncomfortable zone. One of the things that I really loved about this book was that Lily was not portrayed as weak or mousy in her ways. As Chaz says to her, he was reading through her implied suggestion and was going to take her up on it.
Ms. Folsom portrays Chaz as the buffed out, sculpted male species that one has come to expect from this genre. Personally, I wouldn't mind the descriptions of his hard muscles and body if the story were lengthier. But when a story is a quick read, I think that part of it was overkill. But communicating with the author, I know that she has a special place in her heart for Chaz so perhaps he was given some preferential treatment by his creator.
The story was mild dominance and unlikely to offend and may be a good introduction for mature adults into this genre. Lily maintains some control. Chaz allows her to call him by his name and not sir and certainly not master. Lily dresses to impress and impress she does. Before even exploring the dominance part of their interlude this book scenes about sex in a public place. That is something that many couples can relate to and may improve the draw of readers into the book.
Lily is a beauty. Chaz is hunky, a bit of a cliche but if it works for the author that is what counts.
I admit I struggle with short stories/novellas. I always seem to be searching for more and find myself disappointed when things end. Perhaps that is just greed on my part. I would like more details and more information about the relationship between these two characters. Again, just personal greed. That is the sign of the success of Ms. Folsom's writing. She leaves you wanting more.
If you're not into BDSM, or can't at least have an open mind, DO NOT READ THIS. I hate when people read something outside their comfort zone and then trash what they read because the author wrote something that made them uncomfortable. STOP READING. Or DON'T PICK IT UP! This is an EROTIC, SHORT STORY. Got that? EROTIC. There will be SEX. SHORT STORY. It's not a full-length NOVEL. Got it? Okay. Good. Now, if you're still interested, read on...
I tend to shy away from erotica, particularly short stories. Why? Not because I'm a prude, but because, as anyone who reads my reviews with regularity will tell you, I'm very much into character-driven stories. By their very nature, erotic shorts are NOT expected to focus on character or have time to develop them enough for me to care about them. But Rene succeeded in doing just that! (Gonna post these two paragraphs for all the stories in the set).
Of all the stories in the Roommate Romance set, I felt this one had the least amount of character development. That doesn't change how hot and sexy it is, and for a story that is aiming to be just that, it gets 5 stars. But I'd have liked a little longer story with more time to know the two main characters and why their relationship progressed as it did. I think it bothered me more in this story because it's a BDSM-lite story, where dominance, submission and, above all, TRUST is part of the appeal. I didn't know why Lily trusted Chaz. I knew why she wanted him and why he wanted her, but I didn't know why she'd be willing to trust him. If I did, I'd bump it up a star, maybe even two, no trouble whatsoever. So, if that won't bother you, jump in with both feet, because this one is a scorcher!
Rene Folsom does not disappoint in any way shape or form with Bind Me. Even though Bind Me is a short story, Folsom includes so much detail that I could envision Lily and Chaz like they were actually my neighbors. Bind Me is told through Lily’s point of view and even though she knew what she was getting into, it was told in a refreshing manner. I loved how she portrayed BDSM because it’s not all like what many readers were introduced to with Christian Grey. Plus sexy artist Chaz had my pulse racing by the time he was finished being introduced. Lily is engaging and easy to love and relate to. The way Folsom expertly wrote her to be excited, intrigued and apprehensive all at once was impressive for a short story. Another thing you can definitely expect is moist panties. The steamy scenes and moments will get your pulse racing and temperature rising. Bind Me is better than fresh baked chocolate chip cookies from the oven. I will be keeping up with the roommate series for as long as Folsom keeps writing them. Just when I thought things couldn’t get any hotter after Heart you (book 1), I read Bind Me and was blown away again. Seriously give the books a try and discover new tricks for your own bedroom.
Part of what I love about this series is the standalone nature of each read.
This Installment of the series is the first one that dealt with just a couple, a m/f relationship without a third party to join in the fun.
Still somehow, very creatively, Rene made this a fun little kinky tryst. I am a fan of the whole dominant male but I often cringe at the completely submissive female.However Chaz is the perfect combo of sweet and dominant and it is obvious that while Chaz is in control of what he and Lily are doing there is no lack of respect for his girl.
Rene has a clear vision of how this relationship should have been written. That is my one complaint of other books that have tried to explore these dominant/submissive relationships; the author doesn’t always grasp the respect and love that is still very important for the partners. So here again I am giving Rene another well deserved five stars and will again point out that she is my favorite little erotica author, I love the romances she writes and the kinky twist that make them exciting!
Before reading my review, realize that this story is for mature audiences only. This is a very steamy erotica and viewer descretion is extremely advised.
Once again Rene Folsom proves to be a master of erotica with her second entry into the Roomate Romance series (the first entry being Heart You). Bind Me is the story of a woman who lusts after her roomate who proves to be a master of pleasure. Finally achieving what she has striven for, she undergoes a night she will never forget.
I’m once again brought to mention how I don’t normally enjoy or partake in smut-driven stories, but Rene Folsom has a way with words that makes me forget my usual indifference towards erotica. Her style is very fluent, brilliantly written and out right mind-blowing in her descriptions. The depth this author has brought to her stories has me jealous of her skill. She pens each of her stories with finesse, bringing the characters to life in ways others could not. Rene Folsom definitely has a fan when it comes to me!
Oh! Wow! This was a steamy read. Definitely a must read!!
Lily had a suspicion that her roommate Chaz was a take control kind of guy. So when she walks in on Chaz dominating another woman she finds out she was right about Chaz being dominating. But what shocks her most was that she was attracted to Chaz even more after that. So to gain his attention she starts to submit to Chaz in their daily everyday life. Lily is really pleased and shocked when Chaz asks her to go with him to his art show and she willing agrees to go. After getting dressed up, aiming to please Chaz, Chaz can't keep his eyes off Lily all night. As the night continued on Chaz is unable to resist Lily anymore and Lily's fantasy about being Chaz's is finally coming true.
This was a very nice short story and I really enjoyed it! The writing was descriptive and well written. I look forward to what the author will write next!
Wow! This book was HOT! I couldn't tear myself away from it once I started. Just like Heart You, Rene Folsom did a great job!!
Lilly accidentally walked in on her roommate with another girl. Not only is she surprised at what he's doing, but she finds it hot. Thoughts of him doing the same to her dominate her until it becomes a reality.
Chaz had asked Lilly to be his date for a gallery opening. He planned on having his way with her when they got back home, but finds it hard with what she's wearing. After excusing themselves from the party, he takes her away and has his way with her. Not only does she love it, but she thinks that they have a chance at being more than a one night fling.
When they rejoin the party, he introduces her to people as HIS girl.
This is a very hot read but shouldn't be read by anyone under eighteen. Bind me contains some material that may not be suitable by younger readers.
Oh My! This book is friggen HOT! I should have known by the first one but again, Oh My! Lily and Chaz are the stars of this quick and sexy romance. Lily walked in on Chaz and since then she has been wanting him hard core. Now he has finally given her an opening and she is going to jump at it. Hot Sex during a Gala? Um Yes much?
Another great read from Rene Folsom. She just blows my mind. Her novellas are short and to the point but don't feel to be lacking at all. They are a perfect erotica read for sure :D I cannot wait to read more form her. I highly recommend her for anyone :D These books grab your attention from the get-go and keep it till the end :D Fingers crossed this series continues <3
Wow! That is all I can say! This short story will leave you wanting a damn novel! I read it in about 15 minutes with a few Mommy interruptions... And WOW!
This story is about 2 roommates, and one is a dominant male. Once Lily gets an eye full of Chaz & another girl... She wants more. Bind Me takes place at an Art Gallery. Lily & Chaz get to know each other on an entire new level.
Bind Me is the perfect quick read if you loved Fifty Shades of Grey. It's short, hot, steamy, dominate, intense, and a fear of getting caught! My only complaint is that it was too short! I wanted to know more about the roommate romance, and how it all works out down the road! So if you want a quick, hot read... Get Bind Me today!!!
One thing I really enjoyed about this book was being able to “see” Lily’s curiosity start to grow with her desire for Chaz. Rene has the ability to include the little details that bring the story to life even more. It was almost like you could understand Lily’s hesitation towards the dominate Chaz, but she couldn’t let go of her desires to be with him.
This is another steamy read from Rene, and even though it has a light BDSM aspect to it, you are not overwhelmed with that part of the story. You were more drawn into the story, as opposed to being focused on the BDSM part.
This is the second of the Roommate Romance series, and I would completely recommend it. If you haven’t read the first book in the series, Heart You, then what are you waiting for??
Lily walks in on her new roommate Chaz dominating a woman bound to his bed and decides she wants that from him. And this hot little story is about their first "session" as Chaz introduces Lily to the world of BDSM. And what an introduction it is! Rene Folsom has yet again crafted a hot and steamy short story that will leave you panting. Best of all, an ending that lets you know that this is just the beginning for Lily and Chaz and even if we don't get to read it, we know that our girl Lily gets her man.
Roommate Romance Series Review: These are stand-alone sexy short stories and can be read in any order. I had the privilege of reading all 3 and I absolutely loved them! They are quick easy reads that will get your motor running! LOL Heart You and Share You are both F/M/F situations and Bind Me has a male dominant but it doesn’t get into any heavy BDSM or anything like that, just a little tying up. ;) Each short story is about one hot night, but you get a little bit of background as to how these opportunities come about. Great reads, go get your copies now! ~Kendra
I thoroughly enjoyed Heart You, but Bind Me took it up another notch. Lily and Chaz have such chemistry, and the writing style makes you feel like your right there in the room, watching everything from the corner. The light BDSM is erotic, without being over the top and just seems more real, making it a very steamy read which will get you hot in all the right places.
I received an e-copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I just love Rene Folsom and especially her short stories. This series is awesome. She is a fantastic writer and I have loved everything she's made available. If you like kinky, sweet sex then this series is for you. I love that I can read them in one sitting.. Thanks Rene for not only making full length novels but also these quick sexy ones I can breeze through! LOVE LOVE LOVE! (I have waited what seems forever for 'Bind Me')
wow . this story is so sexy all she wants is her roommate a domating man who know what he wants. she watched him strum a women to heights of passion never heard of until she gets to go with to a party with him and she finally gets her chance at the greatest passion ever known...
I have to say that Rene Folsom did an exceptional job writing this. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quick sexy read. She definitely had my blood boiling! I would love to read more of Lilly and Chaz in the future and I definitely will be reading more from this author!
I won this in a competition and what a win. I'm slowly falling in love with Renew and her stories. Definitely one to read if you like kink. This book grabs you from the start and is a short read so you can get it done in one sitting. I'm defiantly keeping an eye on this author.
4.5 STARS ANOTHER SEXUALLY HOT AND STEAMY SHORT STORY. IT DEFINITELY IS A GREAT STORY BUT STILL TOO SHORT. IT'S A VERY STEAMY STORY THAT LEAVES YOU BEGGING FOR MORE. THIS STORY IS FULFILLING AND I WANT MORE, PLEASE.
This is one hot book. At least Lily knows what makes Chaz tick so that she can get her chance with him. She is asked to a party and she has finally taken all of Chaz's control away from him. He has to give in and take her downstairs.
This story was hot and I really enjoyed this short novel.
Rene Folsom did a fantastic job of making me interested, selling me on her characters and providing a hot and sexy scene all in a matter of a few pages. She is an amazing writer. I thoroughly enjoyed this short and sexy story!
