Book Review: Love Unbound by Angela Castle

I was given the opportunity to review a book by a fellow Evernight author, Angela Castle. This is her first story with Evernight and I know from what I’ve read it won’t be her last.

So, here is all the information you need first.

Arriving home from work, Master Brendon finds a wonderful gift waiting. Tied to a chair is the lush Jay Becket, his sub’s best friend. Being bi-sexual, Brendon explores the delights of Jay’s submission. All too quickly he finds himself falling under her spell, in more ways than one.

Jay has always lusted after Brendon and agrees to her best friend’s plan to become Master Brendon’s new submissive, to help ease the pain she knows is coming.

But emotions spiral out of control when Brendon learns the truth behind Jay’s sweet submission. A secret which could tear their new fragile bond apart.

My Review

Angela Castle is a new author to me and I didn’t know what to expect. I can now tell you I was thrilled by her story, Love Unbound.

The premise of the story is, Jay’s best friend, Ryan, teachers her how to be a submissive to his partner, Brendon. Can I just say, Brendon sounded so yummy. I feel for him instantly. He has the perfect combination of possessiveness, love and just everything I love to read about in a man. Ryan offers Jay as a gift to his master in the hope they can live together happily.

I don’t want to give anything away as the bitter sweet ending is what really makes this story. The chemistry between Jay and Brendon, was believable and sweet. I loved how Angela Castle showed a difference in Brendon’s affection for Jay and Ryan. He fell for them both but you’re not disappointed with Jay being added to the mix.

This story does have a big twist that made me put the book down for a few hours before finishing. I like how stories draw me in and I can really get a sense of the characters. The fact that this is a really short story is what makes it a wonderful read.

Love Unbound moves along at a nice steady pace. I didn’t feel rushed in everything that was happening. Be warned, this does have some steamy scenes in and BDSM as well.

Overall, this story is well worth the read and I thank Angela for allowing me the opportunity to read this story.

Tomorrow, Angela will be a guest on my blog so don’t forget to stop by and see what she has to say.

Blurb for 31 Flavors – a contemporary BDSM romance, based on a true story:
There are some things in life you have to try before you know how they will affect you. After 5 years of awful sex, I was ready. Bondage and spanking had always featured in my fantasies, and one day, I convinced my husband to try them. That day was a turning point.
Ice cream comes in many flavors and that’s us too — not vanilla, maybe not Rocky Road either. We can be a combination or make up our own and no one has the right to judge us.
But there will always be one question that tears at my soul: Will my husband, Nick, ever be happy with what I crave?

Excerpt

His body is heavy on mine, pushing me into the floor. The carpet is soft against my cheek.
There’s laughter in his voice when he says, “Did you say ‘lady parts’?”
“What?”
“A few minutes ago, did you refer to your pussy as lady parts?”
He’s bringing this up now? “Yeah, I guess.” He shoves his hand under my body and finds my clit. His finger lightly strokes it. “Ahh!” I dissolve into the floor.
“You can do better than lady parts. We’re getting down and dirty now. Say a dirty word for it.”
Mmm. Is he talking? Why is he talking?
Abruptly, he stops moving and holds his finger on the tip of my clit. “Say it.”
Sweat beads on my brow. “Say, what? The p-word?”
“Yes.”
“No.”
He removes his hand. “Then I’ll stop right now.”
I snort. “You can’t. I know you.”
“Do you really want to test me?”
Do I? One thing about Nick – he means what he says. And he doesn’t threaten idly. My lower body wants more. I ache and try to wriggle my crotch into the carpet though his weight means I can’t do much. My heart beats a smidgeon faster when I feel his erection pressing along the divide of my backside. I sigh. “No.”
“Then say it.” His hand strokes down my side and across my ass. My eyes drift shut as my muscles relax under his warm hand. “The dreaded p-word. What do you think will happen? God will smite you?”
“Haven’t you heard, every time you say the p-word, a fairy dies?”
“Say it,” he growls. He lowers his mouth to my ear and bites it.
The jolt of pain makes me blurt, “Pussy.” Then the word and the bite somehow intertwine and run a streak of warmth straight down to my…yes, my pussy.
“Good.” He shoves my thighs open and finds my slick center with his hand, cruises along, his finger just a tiny thrust away from entering. “And what do you want me to do to it?”
His fingers circle my clit, slipping in my moisture and spreading it…around and around. This is so not fair. The answer slips through my lips, “Fuck it.”
He gasps in mock horror. “Dirty girl!”
