Bound to Him
Previous Book: Bound by Deception
Lord Vincent Prescot's life couldn't be better. Thriving investments, well-respected by his peers, and mind blowing sex with a man who submits to his every desire -- what more could he want?
Lord Oliver Marsden should be more than happy with his life. He's been in love with Vincent for over a decade and six...more
I was so anxious to read this book. Bound by Deception is one of my all time favorite books. I had fallen under Oliver and Vincent’s spell, and was so excited when I found out Ava was continuing their story. I felt like we had to wait forever until Bound to Him was released. After I read it, it was worth the wait! I don't want to spoil the book, so I'll tread as light as I can with this review.
Shhhh…I have a confessio ...more
The titles of these instalments are so fitted. Let’s see how far it will go : on the last part.
Ms. March's writing was still pretty damn awesome.
Vincent and Oliver were still hot...
I am happy to say that Vincent's character improved for me. He definitely made leaps and bounds in accepting his preference for men and not being so ashamed of it. Also, he finally managed to stand up to his arsehole of a father.
But...but...there is always a
Vincent does finally admit the he has feelings for Oliver. However, it seems lik ...more
Oh yes! Oliver and Vincent definitely rock.
Ava March packed a lot of feels into the second book of the series.
I just adored how Oliver stands up to Vincent, how he makes his point and nudges Vincent who still struggles to admit his sexuality to himself, into having a good look at himself.
I LOVED the scene where (view spoiler)[ Vincent finally gives in and totally falls apart under Oliver’s ministrations. So hot, so sensuous and loving! (hide spoiler)]
Only complaint: this was too sh ...more
With this continuation, we get a deeper look into the relationship Oliver and Vincent have 6 months after they became lovers in Bound by Deception. We get a better look at the responsibilities Vincent takes on so he can earn respect from his father. How Vincent's decision, and his lack of accepting himself again, put ...more
Vincent and Oliver will have to be apart...
Yes... it's the start of this book. Vincent going back to London after some time away from Oliver.
I was stunned... that was my feelings for most of the book. Vincent is now so damn annoying with his adoration of his father! He will not only keep fighting against his "unaccepted" love for another man, but now will be in deeply shit (pardon my French, but it's true) being promised to married.
So, more drama, and now believe me there will be FINALLY a dr ...more
Oh thank fuck. I thought my Book-Fu was broken.
Lovely, sexy period piece here with tons of hot sex. I actually thought there was a good bit of character development for such a short book and I really liked that little conversation there at the end. So realistic and honest.
I was so happy that Vincent admitted his love for Oliver, and the end was so great, them having sex wi ...more
Lord Oliver and Lord Vincent were in love, Lord Oliver deceived Lord Vincent but only for love, and at the end of the nov ...more
Oliver has been loving Vincent for years and he finally has him, but he's not satisfied with their relationship. He wants something more than sex, he wants his love to be acknowledged by Vincent, he wants Vincent to reciprocate his feelings. He therefore stands up against Vincent and voices his emotion. It's something I would have never expected from O ...more
Because this is where Vincent finally realized how he felt for Oliver. This is where the 'power' shifted, so to speak. I noticed how Vincent always called Oliver, Marsden, in the first story and the beginning of this one -- but during the final act, when Vincent came to Oliver to tell him that he is not marrying Lady Julianna, Vincent referred to him as "Oliver". That scene just clicked to me, right there. It was no longer just one- ...more
Not that this is easy, or that all obstacles are quickly overcome. In fact, there are more in the second book than there were in the first, providing a real test for the two lovers.
Vincent is as infuriatingly idiotic as in the first b ...more
I loved Oliver!
I read book 1 Bound By Deception first then immediatley ordered and read this one. I'm not sure why they were released as two books. It would have made a perfect novel instead of 2 shorter books.
Read them together and you shall not be disappointed.
Can't wait to read more from Ava March.
IMHO, in this part we can see more of Oliver's character and his spine. He's strong enough to stand up to Vincent and, by doing it, to fight for Vincent - his devotion and feelings and not only his lust and desire. And I loved Oliver for that, for being able to leave Vincent, if need be, to save himself and his heart.
And I loved Vincent, too. Oh, don't get me wrong, I was so pissed off at him for following his father's whims ...more

Bound series. So far there are 2 books, and one free short story, in this series. All three have the same main characters, Oliver and Vincent, in it.

In this second installment, the reader is subjected to conflicting agendas and a possible end to a blossoming relationship between Oliver and Vincent. Ms. March does an excellent job of ...more
I'll admit I was concerned going into this. I loved book one and was one of the many begging for more, but what often happens to me is that I just can't bear to see my characters HEA ruined and I don't want more conflict. But this was the perfect amount. The fact that it was a novella helped because it didn't drag on. They hit a very realistic bump in the ro ...more
Oliver is easy to like and he is comfortable with himself and who is is.
I've heard that there may be a third story, I'd so jump on top of that book now!
