Binding Agreement
Binding Agreement - Kyra Davis El final no me convenció mucho que digamos, el desarrollo y la bajada en espiral de Robert hacia el desquicio prometían (o al menos yo esperaba) un desenlace más dramático. Fue interesante leer, a pesar de todo, cómo se fue trastornando la imagen de él que tenía nuestra femenina en cuestión desde un principio ya que, de ser el billonario soñado y "perfecto" usual pasa a ser un loquito con plata nada más; y una vez caído el manto del romanticismo y la idealización, sólo queda la persona real y el hecho de si la protagonista acepta o no al ser humano y no a la idea que se ha forjado de él. Interesting, indeed .

No obstante tuvo el hea que seguramente la mayoría de los lectores deseaban... no es mi caso, pero entiendo que al ser un romance se espera un final "feliz" cueste lo que cueste) .

Un tres por la serie en su totalidad. Una primera entrega sólida pero dos continuaciones que no estuvieron a la altura, más un final a las apuradas y sin demasiado sentido.

Book Review - Bound to be Pleasured by Pam McKenna
Bound to be Pleasured - Pam McKenna

Bound to Be Pleasured is an erotic romance “boxed set” which combines three of Pam McKenna’s highly acclaimed erotic works into one bargain-priced volume. The short novel and two novellas included in this set were originally published by Ellora’s Cave.

 

 

Binding Agreement
Kay lives a boring and straight-laced, unfulfilled life. After a near death experience, she now wants to live life to the fullest. When she meets John on the beach during a midnight swim in the ocean, and has a night filled with intense BDSM sex, her life will never be boring again.

 

This was a very intense read for me. Although it only has 111 pages, it seemed much longer than that. The sexual scenes are HOT and STEAMY and EROTIC. With over the top vivid descriptions and the hot erotic sex scenes, this story will have even the prudest individuals fanning themselves and begging for more!

I really don’t think the cover matches this story though. It leads the reader to believe they are about to read something light and sweet and it is nothing of the sort. What is in between the pages is hard, hot and at times dark.

 

Overall, this was a good book that I enjoyed. Ms. McKenna definitely has a talent for crafting an amazing erotic reading experience. If you like to read a book with intense sex scenes and BDSM, then look no further than Binding Agreement.

 

Photo Play

WOW - just WOW! I really enjoyed this story. So much hot and steamy goodness in the pages of this short but sexy novella!

 

At the beginning, Kom seemed to be an egotistical prick with a lot of ex-wife baggage, but as the photo op and the story progressed, the man really grew on me and I loved him!

 

I liked the fact that Darla was just your typical girl wanting desperately to make her fiancé happy and willing to go outside the box to do just that. I don't condone the cheating aspect of the story, but heck, this is fiction after all and in the end, she finally figured out what she truly wanted - and needed.

 

Photo Play is pretty freaking hot! I was instantly sucked into this sexy and captivating story and could not put it down. It was a satisfying quickie that brought a smile to my face with the happy ending. This is the second novella I have read by Pam McKenna and it is my favorite so far. If you love Erotic/BDSM stories, then this is a must read!

 

Faking It
When Britt tries to sell one of her paintings, a forged nineteenth-century masterpiece, to sexy millionaire Garrett, she gets more than she bargained for when she gets caught. Her punishment is seven days of sexual fun with Garrett and his friend Jack- or go to jail. Ummm, tough choice......or not!

 

In Faking It, Pam McKenna proves once again that she can write not only a solid erotic romance, but also incorporate some fun, witty dialogue as well that really engages the reader throughout. There was so much to like in this book. The dialogue between the three characters was so hilarious, I found myself laughing out loud several times. When I wasn't laughing, I was wondering who turned off the A/C in the room because the sex scenes were HOT! Who knew one could have so much fun with a chin-up bar? (Note to self: Add chin-up bar to Amazon wish list!)

 

This well written, provocative story is hot, steamy and is the perfect read for a lazy afternoon. Faking It has it all - great sex, awesome story line and hot male characters! Fans of erotic romance will not want to miss out reading this short but satisfying novella.

Review: Binding Agreement (Just One Night #3) by Kyra Davis
Binding Agreement - Kyra Davis

"Binding Agreement" is the last of Kyra Davis's trilogy of novellas, which composes the novel "Just One Night." I'm choosing to review each of the parts individually rather than the collective novel because each has its own separate arc, and I want to give attention to them as they were originally written before their compilation.

The title to this particular part of the series is appropriate considering this is not so much a romance as it is a contract, a lust, a pursuit of power. And honestly, I was impressed that the story managed to tie up details as well as it did in this part because it easily could've fell apart for what it pushed toward.

Here's my take on this story and I know I might be the only person who feels this way about this series. I thought this was an excellent rounding out to the series progressively. Kasie starts off as a woman who strays into the arms of a stranger in Part I. She's an independent woman who knows what she wants (or thinks she knows what she wants), but doesn't give herself a chance to explore until that night she ends up meeting Robert Dade. She realizes that the life she'd thought she'd made for herself in its appeared perfections is not what she expected. The whirlwind affair ends up coming to a head when Dave finds out. Part II is the struggle in which Kasie has to leave that relationship and enter another with Robert. But as the pursuit goes, she ends up leaving one controlling relationship, straight into the arms of another.

The third part in this series is ultimately about a corruption of security, power, and domination, and Kasie has to come to terms with what those struggles mean, and ultimately step out of power plays to find what she wants. This text, I will say, is indulgent, it is self-serving, it is heavily flawed, but damned if it doesn't do an excellent job of showcasing where the flaws are and ultimately showing that security within power displays is not all that it's cracked up to be.

In this part, Kasie believes that she's on the top of the world. Robert's firmly hers, she's taken a top position in her company (though at the expense of anothers - Tom, while helping her to break her relationship with Dave, gets ousted from the company and Kasie takes his vacant position). But the power isn't so much in Kasie's hands as it is in Robert's. Robert's pronounced dominance in both Kasie's professional and sexual life comes to a full circle in this book. It's like watching a sexual and corporate power struggle akin to the story of Death Note. Only there isn't anything working against Kasie, except her own conscience.

Kasie is pretty self-aware of the backlash, but it's only when she starts feeling guilt about it and questioning Robert's motivations that she starts realizing the problems surrounding her - what with her position and how she's coming to take possession of such power. In the end, this affects her relationship with her parents, friends, co-workers, pretty much everyone. She has to put her foot down and say "Enough is enough, I do not want this, not like this." And the first thing she has to do is to say "no" to Robert.

That...takes a lot longer than what the length of the narrative provides, and I almost wish she'd given the verbal kick to Robert's bum sooner. If I can admit one fault to "Binding Agreement" - it spends too much time on the speculation of these details and I wanted to say, even for its short length: "Get to it." I understood what it was trying to do and where it wanted to go, but it could've been a little better in the transition getting there. Still, I have to applaud Davis for having an eye to the matter and for keeping my attention and rounding out the story with all the build up it's had thus far.

In the end, there's a bit of a reconnect that leaves the ending open for more development with Robert and Kasie, but not in a way where I thought it was unsatisfying, because they're both having to pick up pieces of all the events that have transpired. Heck, even after everything Dave did in the last installment, he's back here briefly for a closure upon his story and his role in the measure of things.

It's worth saying that every single bit of the characters in this overarching tale is flawed, self-serving, and caught up in the power plays of sex, position, and entitlement, but the way that it was handled and given an eye in respects had me intrigued from point one to the end, even when I didn't like the characters or their assertions in spurts. I haven't read any of Kyra Davis's other works, but this does make me want to see more of what the author has to offer in future pursuits.

Overall score: 3.5/5 stars

Binding Agreement - Kyra Davis

If you've read my reviews on the previous 2 books of this novella trilogy, then you'd know I loathe Kasie & Robert Dade. They didn't get any better in this book either. That changed when I was about 70/75% into the book. I struggled with wanting to even finish the book because of stupid shit they were doing. The whole bar scene that Dade planned out was ridiculous & awkward. Honestly, if I was Kasie & found out the truth about that scene Dade wouldn't have any balls left! It wasn't till about the last 25% of the book that Kasie started to redeem herself. She had her 'aha' moment & she stopped acting entitled & owned up to her mistakes. She started her path of self discovery without anyone controlling her. She started to live her life not the life anyone else wanted her to live. Dade even redeemed himself at the very, very end. He righted some wrongs and he even had his moment of redemption with Kasie. With all that said, they're still not my favorite couple but, I ended up liking them (mostly Kasie) a teeny, tiny, smidgen more.
