This is one Bondage Club I'm running too! Especially if a green eyed hottie named Hunter Donovan is going to be there! This is the third book I've read from Alexandrea Weis, and this women is amazing, I would read a dinner menu written by her! After reading Covers to Covers and The Riding Master I was so eager to start this third book The Bondage Club!!

We meet Hunter Donovan and I instantly fell in love with him, if he were on a platter I would devour him in seconds! ( oh no my husband better no

No.. Don't go! Yes I am talking to you!

Do not let this title fool you because you would sadly be mistaking but if you dare to take a plunge into a brilliantly well written book, than this is the book to read.

Let me emphasize that not only do I have cover lust of the book but it had me biting my lip with anticipation! (one star)

The Author is an exceptional writer that has a wonderful gift for writing seamless detailed books that can transport you into the pages, which kind of reminded me of Har

I was given this arc for an honest review. I must say without giving away the story, that this was not what I was expecting, it was so much more!!! This book was an amazing story delving into giving up on dreams, not allowing you to be true to yourself and how much it does effect you. Alexandrea does an amazing job of bringing these characters to life. You can feel and understand the hardships and reasons of why they are the way they are. It really touches base with a feeling most people know an ...more

wow this is truly a case of not judging a book by its cover or title.

I wasn't sure I would like this story as I am not really into bondage but happily the subjects isn't too heavily featured and what is is woven craftily into the story.

Hunter is the head of a publishing company and Cary is the editor to Smut Slut an erotic author. Wanting to start a new publishing line of erotic fiction Hunter hires Cary as the head of the department and editor for the first author of this new line Smut Slut an

Complimentary copy given by the author in exchange for an honest review


They say that opposites attract…but do they really? Well, apart from the initial physical attraction when you meet a person, I honestly believe that finding – and keeping – your soul mate has little to do with the physical attributes you possess. To me, what is on the inside truly determines if you have found that special someone who completes your life. But somehow, some way, we often have to search long and hard before we

Do not judge a book by its title. To say this book was not what I expected would be an understatement. It was less BDSM than I thought and more along the lines of a rom/com. The banter between the main characters is like a Spencer Tracey/Katherine Hepburn movie, which I loved. This book deals with a lot of issues carried by the main characters, Hunter and Cary. There is family drama, sibling rivalry, dashed dreams, sexy banter and broken hearts. While the book was not what I expected, it was a t ...more

Bondage Club:
We all put on different faces every once in a while. Whether it’s to blend in better, hide our true feeling or just to escape our own realities every once in a while. However not many of us can carry on this façade for quite as long or quite as well as Cary can. Hunter Donovan has lost his inspiration. He once had dreams of being the next great American novelist instead he is running his father’s publishing house helping others fulfill their dreams while his he has completely abando

Is someone really who they say they are? You can't judge a book by its cover, this being the same as the characters in this book or real life people for that matter! Yes, it is true that we all hide some part of our self inside and keep it bottled up because of the fears of the outside world or their reaction to us. What an emotional ride, focusing on the ups and downs but delving more into the soul of the characters. I fell in love with the main characters, Hunter and Cary from the start. Their ...more

3 of 5 Stars
The Bondage Club is the tale of Hunter Donovan, publisher and manager of Donovan Books. After a promotional expo leads him to meet the renowned erotica author, Smut Slut, he contacts her editor to get “Smuttie” on board with his dream of opening up a line of erotica novels. In walks Cary Anderson, quiet editor to the erotic arts.
Hunter's reputation as a ladies' man follows him everywhere he goes and Cary is far from oblivious to this fact. However,

Your first thought of this book is it will be erotica but it is so much more. Two people going about their lives but having given up their dreams are left wanting more.

The things that I loved about this book was you actually got to see into the world of publishing and writing. Hunter and Cary are great characters that are brought to life on the pages. You follow them as they get to know each other and dance around their relationship.

Hunter put away his great American novel but Cary pushes him

The Bondage Club brings you two people (Hunter & Cary) who are trying to be something they are not because either life was not what one thought it would and the other was insecure. They find each other and they help each other make their dreams happen. Wow! You read the title and see the cover & expect all this hardcore BDSM, but this book is so much more than that.

This is the second book I've read by this author and I'm loving the journey she's taking me on. Both books I've read have been brilliant.

This book is so not what I thought it was gonna be. I thought this book was gonna be full of bondage but I was so wrong. The storyline was great and I found this book addictive.

If your looking for a really good sweet read with lots of twists and turns then this is the book for you. I'm definitely gonna be keeping this on my kindle to re-visit again.

Excellent Job. I was caught by surprise just like Hunter in the book was surprised. Neat!
No real heavy BDSM in this book at all. Just a cute entertaining story.

What I Loved: I definitely loved the whole art imitating life, imitating art thing. The story shows you the effects that Fifty Shades of Grey has had on the book market and the erotica genre in general. I absolutely LOVE Hunter, his character was written so well, that I immediately became emotionally invested in his happiness. The author did such a great job of creating the perfect foil for Hunter in his brother, right away I wanted kick Chris for being such

This is one of those books you cannot judge by its name or its cover. Yes, there is a Bondage Club. Yes, there is some light bondage. No there is no over the top BDSM or torrid affairs. Yes, there is a love affair - quirky, passionate and full of fun and exhilaration. What this book is finally about is being brave enough to own your dreams and having the courage to believe and pursue them.

As the Synopsis of this book explains, Hunter is a man disillusioned by love, trapped in a job he never want

I give this a 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.

This book is not what I thought is was. By the title alone I thought it was going to be quite erotic and steamy. Well I was partly right, it was steamy. The erotic part was something that I thought was going to be different.

Hunter Donovan is a co-owner of a publishing company with his brother Chris. They are at a book expo trying to sign new authors to their publishing house. This when Hunter meets Smut Slut. She is an author doing a signing at the expo and he

So, before I began reading The Bondage Club I had an idea in my head of what to expect. I can honestly say that this story went in a completely different direction and I was so VERY pleasantly surprised. Getting to know these characters was such a treat. :)

Alexandrea Weis tells us a great story in the 3rd person and completely from Hunter Donovan's POV. It was a breath of fresh hair to read a novel completely from the male's perspective. Hunter wasn't the typical Alpha male we come to expect. He

Hunter is looking to improve the sales of his publishing firm. At a publishing event he meets Ms Smut Slut who is a popular erotica author, who introduces him to Cary who is a popular erotica editor looking to progress her career and Donovan Books provides such an opportunity. Hunter wants to sign Ms Smut and Cary is the key to getting that done. Along the way, Hunter fall for Cary but Cary is hiding secrets.





This is a pleasant enough read when you get past the slow start. The c

The Bondage Club by Alexandrea Weis is a story about discovery. Cary and Hunter work to find what they’ve been missing, explore their possibilities and letting themselves be happy!

"Showing a woman who was boss appealed to him. Hunter questioned if that was why erotica books were so popular. It opened the reader to a new realm of possibilities; possibilities of pleasure that had only been whispered about be never indulged."

“You’re wrong, I do know you.” She tilted her head slightly to the side as

Remember the adage Do Not judge a book by it’s cover????? Well for those who are looking for the next 50 Shades of Grey, ya might be a bit disappointed here. Yet if you wish to read a quick, campy, sad, funny, adorable story pick this up!!!! . I met Ms Weis in New Orleans last year during an Anne Rice event. When I saw this story on my Amazon page I bought it, since the last book of hers I read was The Ghosts of Rue Dumaine.

Okay, some might jump at this book as I first mentioned, and be let down

I enjoyed reading this book. Although I knew exactly who Smuttie was before Hunter did. I wondered if he would ever figure it out. Smuttie was able to be bold and put Hunter in his place quickly. She even helps Hunter out by telling him about Cary, an editor who could help his publishing company. The only catch, Hunter's dad, and his brother.

As some of the other reviews stated, this book is much milder than the book cover portrays. I was expecting a hard core erotic tale but was pleasantly surprised to find a very well penned, solid love story.

I want to say a big thank you to Alex Weiss for being able to review this book. While I had some issues with it..it's written beautifully. I am a very picky person when it comes to my romances.

Totally me I confess. I felt a quite a bit of push pull and that drives me crazy. Also I didn't identify with Cary at all. I felt she was way to push and way to dishonest

I loved the opening of this book, it's at an author signing! Hunter Donovan, CEO of Donovan Printing, runs into Ms Smut Slut (ha ha, I laughed every time...and at her nickname Smuttie) and he tries to pick her up! She shoots him down but gives him the name and number of an editor

Don’t let the title fool you. This story is more than you ever imagined. How many of us are willing to put our needs and dreams on hold because they do not match what others believe we should be?

Looking to expand his company into publishing erotica novels Donovan hires Cary Anderson to head up his new division as editor for the next biggest author, Ms. Smut Slut. Love that name.

I have to say that this is my first read by Alexandrea Weis, but it will not be my last. First, let me say that when you look at the title you think you are going to get a book with lots of bdsm. Let me stop you here, for me the book is more about the two main characters taking a journey in finding themselves and each other. And it was such a great book for me.

A great read!

This isn't a book I would normally read, while there's nothing wrong with it it's just one I'm not often drawn to but I am glad that I did. However, in this case I am VERY glad that I was able to read it. It's definitely different as it is told from a male point of view.

Hunter Donovan works at a publishing company his father created, and he wants to add a new flair to it by adding a new genre of books, Erotica. His brother is against it but he does it anyway.
