Between a rock and a hard place…

To Sergeant Zeke Hayes, the expression has always been a non-factor. There’s never been a situation he can’t blast, punch, or smart-ass his way out of, which makes him the perfect fit for his Special Forces battalion—and a natural-born Dominant who’s made a lot of submissives happy from Mt. Rainier to Vancouver. That all changes when Rayna

The Romance Review

Sadistic dominant male falling in love with a vanilla female is never recommended. Why? Because one or both are going to be sexually unsatisfied.

Zeke Hayes is a sexual sadist who loves impact play. When he gets into his Top zone, he is also known as "Psycho Zsycho". When he falls for Rayna, a woman he helped rescue from sexual slavery, he's all out of sorts. He believes she can't handle his brand of spicy heat.

The suspense in this story is a good energetic pace. The story continues from the

***4.5*** STARS

I rounded up to five stars since we cannot give half stars.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, but I loved this book, and cannot wait to read the next.

Note to author: While I agree Lexi Blake pens some great Doms, she cannot compare to Cherise Sinclair or Shayla Black.

I just can't do it...I can't spend anymore time trying to care about it. It started off promising, but just turned boring. I need a BDSM Break. My next book needs to be free of "yes, Sir"s and nipple clamps, floggers and after-care. *Yawn* ...more

I am so hot and bothered in the most beautiful ways by this book. It was so descriptive and amazing. The way Zeke and Rayna vibe is magical. Their chemistry is undeniable. The denial that runs through his blood is so relatable. And the ending! Who would’ve thought the wolf in sheeps clothing is who would save the day. The roller coaster ride this book put me on is something i will never ever forget! This is a book i could read over and over again and never get tired of. Thank you Angel for anoth ...more

Zeke and Rayna will be taking the leap from friends to D/s in this sensually gripping tale. Rayna knew the moment she laid her eyes on her savior in that godforsaken lair that Zeke Hayes was something out of her wildest fantasies. However, with all the damage both physical and mental they each suffered in regards to her ordeal with King, she has been ‘friendzoned’ by her dark knight. She holds no false illusions, aware of his proclivities and propensities for all things BDSM, she wants to try an ...more

Wow, what a story. From the moment Zeke rescued, Rayna from the human sex trafficking monster that had kidnapped her, over a year earlier, they were destined to be together. Zeke was a Special Forces agent in the US Army, and lived his life accordingly. Rayna, was a medic, quiet and rather reserved, due to the events that had recently happened. Until, Zeke, and his dominant ways woke feelings within, that she didn't know she possessed. Zeke tried to dissuade, Raynas advances, but eventually, lov ...more

I am never disappointed with what Angel Payne brings to the table. She always rocks it out hardcore in everything she creates, and HANDCUFFED BY HER HERO is no exception. This story is not your typical boy meets girl, they fall in love, and live happily ever after story. Zeke and Rayna...they have been through some tough shit in their lives, and they are just trying to keep it together. Book #2 in the W.I.L.D Boys series is a gritty, suspenseful,

Many times when you are waiting for the next book in a series, you cross your fingers that the next book is as good as the first. Well in Handcuffed by Her Hero, Angel Payne has exceeded my expectations. In fact, she totally blew me away!

To paraphrase a quote from a famous movie, Ms. Payne had me at “A woman screamed.” The heart wrenching journey began with these words as Rayna Chestain and Zeke Hayes worked to heal each other and learn to trust again. I had read the first W.I.L.D. Boys book so

Zeke is so flawed. He’s convinced he can’t be the man Rayna needs. When their friendship takes a turn from the platonic, he makes it clear to Rayna he’s not the kind of guy to make a life with. But who’s he really trying to convince?

Rayne will take what she can get initially but soon realizes she’s too in love with Z to just be friends or friends with benefits. She also finds her submissive side really enjoys the right man taking charge. While they’re trying to figure out their relationship, the

This was an amazing read! I've been waiting for Handcuffed by her Hero since I finished the first book Saved by his Submissive. Angel Payne is a fantastic writer, with a smooth narrative and dialogue that rings true. Zeke is all alpha male while showing his compassionate side, both mixing together here flawlessly. I mean seriously? Special Forces AND Dom? That's a recipe for Hotness any day and Angel did a perfect job of reeling me in and keeping me on the edge of my seat! HOT HOT HOT scenes tha ...more

Where do I start with Zeke Hayes and Rayna Chestain? I fell for them both in Saved By His Submissive and it only got deeper with their own story. For the hell she went through, Rayna was one strong as female. Zeke is that kind of man you grab hold to and never let go. Thank you Ms. Payne for another awesome W.I.L.D. Boy and the woman that tamed him. :)

**3 1/2 stars**

Much better than the first book, the romance and sexual tension was a lot more enjoyable this time around! Although there are still times that the author's way of describing a scene has me a little bit confused, where i'm having to back up a few pages to start it all over again. Enjoyed it enough that I'll def. be checking out the next book.

Dominance and control are words that best describe Sergeant Zeke Hayes, a G.I. Joe in every sense of the word. He belongs to a Special Forces squadron which makes him a walking warzone if you get in his way.

His one weakness comes in the form of a woman named Rayna Chestain. He saved her from a slave trafficker in the armpit of South Asia. To Rayna, Zeke is her hero, but she does not realize at first the heavy weight he bears that has followed him from being abandoned since he was a teenager. He

Rayna and Zeke are just so hot together that it makes you hot and bothered just reading their story. Zeke is the ultimate dominant and is in high demand. Zeke knows that he is a total dominant and knows that he can't be anything different.

Rayna has gone through so much in the last year and still has nightmares. She seems to can't move on in life and knows that Zeke is the only that can help her conquer her fears. She wants to explore the BDSM lifestyle and knows that Zeke is the perfect person t
Wow... this book has it all. Heat, suspense, action, passion and all things in between.

Angel Payne has never been one to shy away from the darker side of romances and this was no exception. I found myself captivated by this plot! I first fell in love with Zeke and Rayna in Saved (book 1 of the honor bound series) and I’m so thrilled Angel created a deeper story line for them.

This tale is full of hot and steamy bdsm kink scenes, suspense, a darker side to romance. A man known for his bravery and

Gotta love those Special Forces men!
If you though Saved was HOT, wait until you read this!
This is Zeke and Raynas' story. We meet them in the first story and I, myself, being a BIG fan of D/s relationships, couldn't wait to read their story.
This book is intense, raw, sensual, suspenseful and HOT.
Great writing by author Angel Payne with her descriptive words, world building and ongoing character development.

Zeke is a spit of fire, dominate and full of passion. This book is more then I could have thought it was. Zeke so powerful and dominate he didn’t disappoint one bit. These two Rayna and Zeke where destined to end up with each other. He is always her hero no matter what the case may be.

Explosive and fast paced!

Only the second in the series but I'm totally hooked and about to buy the next instalment! The characters are very well written with Zeke coming across as strong, broody and not a little pig headed!! Rayne was determined, lively, a sharp witted spitfire with deep demons resultant of her time spent kidnapped. Both parties struggled and the angst was very well written. The bdsm scenes were so well written that they consumed you to the point where I could smell the leather

The list could go on. But if any of those listed are something you look for then do pick up Cuffed. It's hot, sexy and oh so naughty. You meet Rayna and Zeke in the first Honor Bound Book Saved. Rayna is a survivor and when it comes to her heart she knows who she wants. Zeke isn't just any Dom he is a Master and boy does he know how to handle his subs. Rayna is just trying to heal from

Zeke is dominance personified in everything he does, from his job in the Special Forces to his sex life. Rayna, kidnapped and held hostage by human traffickers, for over a year, rescued by, Zeke, multiple times. Zeke and Rayna were destined to be together from that moment on. He was her forever hero.

Zeke is straight fire, dominance, and passion. This book was everything I was hoping it to be. I expected Zeke to be powerful and dominant, and he sure did not disappoint. Rayna and Zeke were truly fated to be together. He was always her hero and continued to be until the very last page.

Rayna has really battled her demons with everything that happened when she was held captive and it seemed that the hits just kept coming her way. Her light at the end of the tunnel came in the form of her dominan

This is my favorite of the series. Zeke is beautiful and strong but afraid to let his heart open to anyone. His dark side is one he won’t risk losing someone he loves to. He would risk his life but never take anything in return. Zeke is a diamond in the rough he just needs the love of his soulmate to make his world a brighter place. Rayne is the perfect match for Zeke. She is strong and fierce but not willing to give up the one she wants most love. This book is a rollercoaster of emotions. There ...more

When I first read Zeke and Rayna in Saved, the first Honor Bound series book I knew that I needed to know their story. And in Cuffed, Angel doesn't leave us hanging, she leaves you captivated by these two people. With the trauma Ray-bird, the nickname Zeke gives her Rayna needs something only Zeke can give her. Zeke is not know for his commitment to anyone but his special force guys. After being rescued by Zeke, Garret, and his squad in Saved a connect neither one of them realized connects them ...more

Then there's Rayna, the spirited, brave woman that Zeke helped save from being sold into slavery. Both characters tug on your soul with their hidden pasts, present desires, and undiscovered futures.

Had the privilege of reading and ARC copy. Zeke was abandoned at a young age and has never trusted anyone but himself. He protected lots of people and respected his brothers in his unit, but would never give his heart to anyone.
Rayna had been abducted with Sage in Thailand and rescued by Zeke's unit and couldn't get her mind off Zeke. Was it because he saved her, or because she had feelings for him. She couldn't make out the difference in her mind.

While this is the 2nd in the series it can be read as a stand alone. I would highly suggest reading Saved first but it is not necessary.
Zeke and Rayna have an appearance in the first book in the series and I was thrilled to follow up with them in Cuffed.
Zeke a street rat turned Special Forces badass thinks he is too broken and too dangerous to be with anyone permanently.
Rayna is still fighting the demons from her being kidnapped, held hostage and rescued. She does know she has some unresolved
