Bound to Please continues the journey of Madison deeper into her submission, baring the insecurities all submissives must go through when starting a new relationship. Steeped with thoughtful actions, testing new waters and coming to ultimate decisions, Bound to Please shows you both sides of the coin.
As a serial, Naughty Bits gives us just a little of the bigger story over a course of months. Nope, not a fan of serials, but this one seems to work for me. The story is told from Madison’s point of view, but we get to see her accept each step of the journey. Burned by seven bad relationships, Madison has cut herself off from what she wants and needs.
With Bound to Please, we see that Madison is no doormat submissive. She stands up to someone and while fearful, she doesn’t back down. Through this she realizes she wants to see the other side and perform a scene as a Dominant. Well, Logan is alpha down to the bone and no way is he going to give over the reigns. A scene is set up carefully with Madison learning more than she expected about herself.
We don’t to see into Logan’s mind, but he seems calm and almost zen like for most of the story. We do see him get jealous as Madison is dominating Troy. Also, there was a sweet side of Logan that had nothing to do with BDSM. While there isn’t an on off switch to being a dominant, he wants more than someone who has no personality, who can’t enjoy going to a movie, for a long walk, or conversation while having a meal. He turns into the man I would suspect most submissives would love to meet.
The next and final book comes out in a month (lucky I have it on my Kindle now 🙂 We will see Madison go deeper into her submission as well as a relationship outside of BDSM with Logan. Logan will work towards fulfilling a fantasy Madison revealed in book #2. Looking forward to starting it!
