Kerri is an intern at a law firm and works hard. When her friends insist she agrees to go out clubbing with them and feels a bit like a fish out of water since she let one of her more outrageous friends pick her outfit. Kerri looks like she fits right in, but appearances can be deceiving. What none of her party knows it that they are really about to enter a BDSM club where the front room is light and fun and the back room is erotic to say the least. Kerri is really shocked to see one of the attorneys from her firm outside the club too – even more shocked when he asks to talk with her.
Hunter is much more than an attorney and right now he is working on a dangerous case. His cover depends on his partner, who just stood him up. Hunter can’t change the meeting he is about to go into. Frustrated he looks around and sees what could be his out – an intern from his firm standing in the club line and luckily dressed to go in. Hunter works quickly to gain Kerri’s assistance with his mission.
Kerri walks into a new world with Hunter by her side that night. Master, Sub and BDSM are terms that first shock, then scare and finally fascinate Kerri – especially with Hunter by her side. That first night is more than successful and begins the teamwork of Hunter and Kerri. Kerri is led into new erotic pleasures by Hunter and then with his partner Richard. However, the pleasure is surrounded by the danger that is stalking their every move. Someone is using the club for more than dominance and submission and they plan on eliminating anything that will stand in their way – that includes Hunter and Kerri.
Innocence is awakened with the erotic pleasure that can be found in the BDSM world in Bound By Trust. Kerri quickly has her eyes opened to the darker side of sexuality when she agrees to help Hunter. I could see that while some of it scared her at first, once things were explained Kerri was more intrigued than scared. Watching as Hunter helped Kerri explore this new world while working to track down human traffickers had me turning the pages wondering what new experiences would be around the corner. I found the relationship that developed between Hunter and Kerri to be very erotic and yet I could see that love was the real reason that Kerri could allow herself to become Hunter’s sub. The suspense and danger becomes up close and personal in the end and I loved how both Kerri and Hunter had no problems using their analytical minds to help win the day and take down the traffickers. Hot, erotic and steamy while surrounded by suspense is the perfect definition of Kerri and Hunter in Bound By Trust.
