Review, excerpt and giveaway! Bound To Submit by: Laura Kaye


Decadent… Sensual… Forbidden…

12 Masters. 12 Desires. 12 Fantasies Come to Life. Meet the Masters of Blasphemy…

Hey everyone! I’m so excited for the release of Bound to Submit, the first official book in my brand new and super-hot Blasphemy series! And today, I’m sharing an excerpt from the book, an erotic second-chance love story featuring a tormented Dom and a veteran amputee heroine! I hope you’ll enjoy this taste and pick up your copy – and welcome to Blasphemy!
Now, here’s a peak at the what’s coming in Bound to Submit – enjoy!

Griffin stood in front of her. “We’re practicing Sunday night’s demonstration position. I want to make sure you’re comfortable with it and that it’s not too taxing before we do it in front of an audience, especially since the demos always run a little longer.”

“Yes, Sir,” Kenna said, kneeling naked at his feet.

“I’m going to tie you up. Flog you until your skin is hot and pink. And make you come you until you’re mindless. Understand?” His voice was like gravel, and the bulge in the front of his jeans told her that he was as turned on as she was.

“Yes, Master Griffin. I’m ready.” She shivered.

“Then let’s begin. I want you to sit on your bottom, back straight, knees bent.”

Moving as quickly and gracefully as she could, Kenna got into position. He never revealed what the position would be or exactly how she would be bound, so there was always a thrill of discovery about his bondage that she loved. She took a deep breath as the twine fell against her skin. First, he wrapped a long length around her breasts, squeezing them and making them sensitive, and then he had her sit forward so that her upper body was against the fronts of her thighs.

Each brush of his fingers aroused her. Each wrap of the rope excited her. Each pressing knot pushed her into that place she loved to be.

Next, Master Griffin worked loop after loop around her lower back and the backs of her thighs, holding her in a folded position. His hands moved in what felt like intricate patterns against her spine as he connected those ropes to the ones around her breasts in what felt like some sort of erotic harness.

And then he came around the front of her. “How are you?”

“All Green, Sir.”

He nodded, and then he worked the twine in a stunning pattern down each arm before binding her arms flat against the fronts of her shins, folding her tighter over her legs. It was as he worked on her front that she noticed that he used black rope that matched her prosthetic—had he planned it that way? She wouldn’t put it past him, because the effect was absolutely beautiful against her skin. And part of the point of Shibari was the artist quality of the bondage.

She moaned at how good it felt and looked, and at the fact that Master Griffin was the one who made her feel this way—the only one who had ever made her feel this way.

“You look so fucking beautiful, Kenna,” he ground out as he secured her wrists to her ankles, and then her elbows to the soft spots behind her knees. “There.” He rose and walked around her, and just his observation made her breathe harder, faster. What did he see when he looked at her? Did he see the beauty of his work? Or did he see the damaged woman who’d come home from war?


“Now it’s time for the suspension, little one. Once I start lifting you, just give in to the motion.”

“Yes, Sir,” she said, her voice breathy, her pussy already wet with her need.

She concentrated on her breathing and the music and the sounds Master Griffin was making. She couldn’t see what he was doing with the ropes behind her back and the pulley system he’d lowered from the ceiling, so she didn’t concern herself with it, she just gave herself over to what was about to happen, even though she didn’t know exactly what that was.

And then she rose into the air…

Lindsey's Review (ARC provided) 

5 stars!

Holy cow! It’s not secret that I love Laura Kaye. Her ability to create a complex and beautiful story is just amazing. So when I found out that Laura was going to venture into the world of BDMS I was intrigued. 

While I assume many of us had the same introduction to BDMS reading 50 Shades of Grey, I have found I tend to shy away from BDMS heavy books. I’m not shy about reading these kinds of stories, I simply have not found many authors that can write it well. 

Let me tell you, this is honestly one of the most amazing stories I have read in a while. While I certainly enjoyed the BDMS aspect of this book, it was only a part of what made this story so beautiful. If you have any apprehension about reading a BDMS novel, this is a great book to get you started.

From page one, I instantly love Kenna. She was strong and vulnerable, spunky and insecure. She was someone I wanted to root for. Griffin, on the other hand was exactly what I would expect a strong Dom to be. It was so easy to fall into this story and not put it down until the last words. 

What I found most compelling about this story was Kenna’s attitude toward her service and her personal need to serve this country. So many of the female heroes fall by the wayside. The importance of their front line service is not normally in the forefront of news coverage. The importance of their service, right along side with male unites is simply not discussed. 

I can’t say enough, how much I loved this story and how amazing I find Laura that she would weave such an amazing hero story into a book I couldn’t put down. 

If I had to criticize one thing about this book, it’s that it simply was too short. By the end, I simply wasn’t ready to leave Kenna and Griffin behind. My hope is that they will continue to make appearances throughout the upcoming books. 

Thank you Laura for sharing such an smashing story.
