Christine is the nice sister, the one who takes responsibility for everything and does things for everyone except herself. When Lucy, the not-so-nice sister, asks her for yet another outrageous favor in a long line of never-returned favors, Christine knows she should say no and hang up the phone. But when Lucy promises to finally give Christine their dead mother's pearls in return for her help, Christine knows this is one favor she can't refuse.
Daniel, the ultimate recipient of Christine's favor, is not as thrilled by this prospect as you might expect. He'd actually been trying to lose that game of Master's Poker because the prize was an evening with bad sister Lucy, something no one else at the table that night had wanted to win either. Unlike Christine, Daniel and everyone else in the local D/s community knew what a rotten selfish person Lucy was to everyone in her immediate circle. Why would Lucy's sister be any different?
The title of this book is a not-so-subtle reference to what initially compels Christine to offer herself as a submissive for one night with Daniel, a Dom she's never met. For Christine, her mother's pearls are a symbol of all she has lost - her mother, an honest relationship with her father and a sister who won't treat her like her personal slave. The pearls are the catalyst, but once she and Daniel meet, their instant attraction and the consideration with which he treats her makes Christine finally start to question her priorities and how she really intends to spend the rest of her life.
As for Daniel, his initial take on Christine is shaded by his bias against her spoiled willful sister. But once Christine shares how and why she had come to be there with him, he realizes that the sisters are not remotely alike and that this sister might be the one person who can draw him out of his self-imposed social and emotional solitude. Bound With Pearls is the story of how these two inherently different but well matched people find their way to each other after one unlikely night together that neither had even really thought they wanted.
Although the sexual connection between Daniel and Christine is powerful and immediate, the heart of Bound With Pearls is their emotional connection, which understandably takes a bit more time to develop. One of the things I enjoyed the most is how well Daniel and Christine are matched in terms of what they can bring to the other in their relationship. Christine has almost no self-esteem, yet always seems to trust when anyone else would be wary. Daniel is almost the opposite of Christine, in that his self-esteem is almost too well-developed, yet he rarely trusts when he should, even when his heart tells him it's the right thing to do. As they learn to trust and love each other, each grows in the ways the other shows them, and by the end of the book, each is more well-rounded emotionally than before they met. By the end of their story, Christine is bound to Daniel by love, something more powerful than any pearls could be.

5 out of 5 for this reader folks!
What a HOT, SMEXY SMEXY, WILD read! (*Fanning Myself*)
So before I begin this review I have a secret to reveal! I LOVE me a hot smut filled book. However if you add great characters and a great story then I LOVE LOVE LOVE me a hot smut filled book. This was a LOVE LOVE LOVE! LOL
Bound by Peals written by Sidney Bristol is all about the formation of a dom/sub relationship and the many (did I mention MANY) emotions that are explored during this formation.
This book is not for the easily offended. There are extreme sexual scenarios that are played out and extreme language used. This is a dirty, gritty and sexy book that exploits many common and not so common (pass the ginger ...lol) sides of the dom/sub relationship.
Now that I have armed you a little .. let me "de-arm" you! This story for a BDSM book was FUN and much less intense than many books in the BDSM genre that I have read! While some scenes were intense, there was so much blooming within the forming relationship that it didn't feel "heavy"! Don't get me wrong, all emotions were felt but I never went to a dark ugly place. Not sure if that makes sense but it's the best way I can explain it! LOL
So our submissive's name is Christine. Christine is an unattached submissive that had adopted the lifestyle many years ago and was well trained by a previous dom. After being begged by her horrible, spoiled brat bitchy sister Lucy, to please fill in as a sub (bitchy sister's dom lost a poker game and bet the use of his sub to another dom ... DUDE REALLY???) on her behalf, Christine agrees to spend one night with the winning poker game dom named Daniel.
Seeing as neither Christine nor Daniel know each other (either by rep or by looks) this makes for a very uncomfortable situation and both are NOT looking forward to this "play session"! Well aren't they pleasantly surprised when they are clearly not only attracted to each other but they also "fit" together. I had to chuckle when Christine suddenly wanted to take back many of her "limits" and go all the way. I also melted a little when Daniel said NO and refused to take advantage because the .. er... um .... did it just got really hot in here!? LOL
From this one night, these two decide to see each other again and again, and trust builds between them (that's pretty great considering a dom/sun relationship REQUIRES that)! Tenderness like you can never imagine, and serious boundaries are crossed! Limits are pushed. I found while I was getting angry I was completely smitten as well.
Loved this blurb and it paints the perfect picture.
"Any man could get her off, but she needed him. Their connection, the chemistry wasn't something easily found."
This is a shorter book and I hate giving anything away, so I will leave this review at that! I really truly loved this book and I was fulfilled in all aspects that I have learned to expect and appreciate when reading a BDSM story. I believed in this relationship and I was cheering them on throughout their journey to each other!
I have to comment quickly on this books cover! IT'S BEAUTIFUL! You understand why the title was named what it was, and the model is exactly how I pictured Christine. This is BDSM in it's sexiest! :)
As I do for many of my reviews, let me leave you with a yummy blurb of a breakfast tied up.... that made me ...er... um.... yup it's definitely hot in here .. WINK!
"You aren't in trouble."
She hurriedly chewed and swallowed. "I'm not?"
He chuckled. "Nope." One side of his mouth kicked up in a lopsided smile, giving him a boyish look.
"Then, why ..." Her voice trailed off as he pressed another bite of pancake to her lips.
"Why did I tie you up?" he filled in for her. "Because I like you tied down and at my mercy."
Yes Sir Daniel .. SIGH! LOL
