BOUND by Bonnie Bliss is a BDSM short story collection about a group of people who are somehow interconnected with each other, all of them into the kinky lifestyle. I honestly found the stories a little funny, I'll explain why later, but if you're after the fantasy of sexual domination, kinky play and all that, I'm sure you'll have a blast reading BOUND.
Ownership was non-negotiable.
Bondage on the 4th of July is the first short in the collection. This is only 3 chapters but packs a punch in the smexi-menage department. You have Millie, holding a torch for her big brother's bestfriend, Brad, who's now a Marine and home for the holiday with his other bestfriend Kenny. Short of the story is their menage can sure compete with the 4th of July fireworks. However, I find the BDSM part a little funny and Brad a little amateurish. It just didn't feel authentic and more like Brad is a poser or something, he might be gorgeous and powerful but he didn't strike me as a Dom.

Halloween Submission is a kinky costume party which turned into a disaster but still ended happily. Tom, Millie's big brother, is known in the kinky circuit as a badass Dom. He's got the hots for Lucy, Millie's roomie, whom he shared an intense bondage session in the past. Since then, they weren't able to shake each other off and have been secretly pining for each other. They've been avoiding each other but obviously it was pointless because they move in the same circle and their eventual hook up is inevitable. Lucy and Tom's story is sound but I find Millie a little contradictory. She's already owned by Brad, why is she still hooking up with other Dom's at these parties?

A Slave for Christmas revolves around Brad's bestie, Kenny, whom we've met in Bondage on the 4th of July. After getting injured, he met an old high school classmate, Lindsey, who turned out to be a submissive and have the hots for him. Lindsey's confession at his bedside about her secret crush and craving for the kink was awkward at best and Kenny saw it as an invitation. Their bondage session is the most challenging to read because BBliss pushed the envelope package to the hilt I felt traumatized! Their creativity disturbed me, I was super speed reading those parts!

Overall BOUND isn't my kind of BDSM erotica. I find it funny that these people are all connected and live in the same neighborhood or something it made me think of a D/s version of Stepford. I didn't find the Doms to be seductive or sexy, for sure they're not Christian Grey or even a pale copy of him. To me, it came off as if these people are in it because they want to experiment or because it's popular and they're riding the latest trend. But despite my subjectivity, I still had a great kick out of it, I find some of the scenarios satirical, funny and just plain awkward, I at least was entertained.

Purchase Bound

Bonnie Bliss is not just a willing submissive, but she is a wife and a mother. By day, she is a busy, stay at home mother. At night, she is a sultry storyteller. Her tastes go towards the dark and the extreme. She loves to twist up fairy tales and sweet stories we all know and love. Her lust for Dominance and submission has taken her into the dark inner workings of Sadomasochism. 

Bonnie is a native of Southern California, and says that everything in the Katy Perry song, California Girls is totally accurate. She has done everything from waitressing, customer service phone rep., Corporate Real Estate, and spent a pretty impressive part of her life working for the Disney Corporation—including as a Disney Princess. When she’s not writing, she is ordering too many custom bows for her daughter, baking the best cupcakes in the world, going to Disneyland, laying on a beach, and sometimes playing hockey for release.
