She's got a mean, vintictive father who got her addicted to drugs
Made her marry a man under dishonest circumstances, blackmailing her into it.
As a result, he has put her through gladiator style ordeals to get her to sign divorce papers. She can't sign them because her father has threatened her with dire consequences if she does.
Her husband is fighting his urge to keep her. He has second thoughts because she was made for him. They fit each other. BDSM version of the Perils of Pauline.
Honestly I'm surprised she's got more than 9 lives. Yes it's a stretch to think a character can tolerate even one of the scenes. This is a totally fan-tassy book, very entertaining and the author is extremely creative, colorful, and I can't fault it for anything. I'm looking forward to the next volume.
I'm not sure it would ever have occurred to me to wonder what it would feel like to be tortured, in sensitive areas, by the feel of an airbrush coating me in a decorative layer of false skin so my assets could be best displayed. Or how it would feel to breathe underwater, using experimental technology funded by the warped mind of a wealthy sexual deviant, while being teased by masked and anonymous divers at every turn. Or even how it would feel to be harnessed into a living carousel, for the amusement of others, while being forced to hold a "carrot" between my teeth. But these are the types of things that you will find in C.P. Mandara's lavishly depicted, extravagant world of debauchery, hedonism, duplicity, machinations and revenge.
Once the seeds have been planted, it is hard to keep them from growing. The author's inventive, creative imagination and knack for portraying sexual excess and taboo in such a highly detailed way that it brings reality to them and breathes life into them, will have you expanding the kink portion of your brain and stretching it to its limits.
I won't give away the ending of this dark and lusty tale, but I will say that the culmination of this series, rather than leaving you fulfilled and sated, will leave you begging for more of the same depraved, wicked, tortured treatment, at its masterful reins.
The technical problema that should ha e been caught in editing are numerous and make it difficult at times to read.
I wouldn't recommend this series to anyone.
The blurb for this book reeled me in. The warning from the publisher should have kept me away. Mind you, the book is captivating. The characters are complex, the scenes are described in breath-taking detail, so much so that if this were a movie, it’d be up for a cinematography award, and the story moves at a quick pace. Also true, I have not read other books in the series, so I did feel a bit out of sorts, trying to figure out all the relationships, but it wasn’t too bad for starting at book six. With patience, I feel like I got to understand most of the backstory.
I enjoy erotica, regardless of the gender of the participants. That’s important because there are many different gender combinations in various multiples throughout the story. I’m totally cool with BDSM, though it’s quite heavy here, so be forewarned. Non-consensual is not really my thing, which was a big issue in this case because so much of the action in The Ties That Bind is non-consensual. Pony-play, um, absolutely don’t get it, at all. Again, if it’s your thing, awesome, but it kept me from being able to fully connect with the book. And, it ends with what is pretty much a cliff-hanger, and that irks me.
So, what does all of this mean for a recommendation? Definitely heed the publisher’s warning. This is a DARK novel, with some pretty kinky and fetishy stuff going on, beyond the typical kink and fetish. Odd to say, I know. But, it is erotic, too. And it’s very well written. It’s not my thing, but if it’s yours, I’d say read this book. I can honestly recommend it to the right audience. Four stars out of five.
Original review posted on: WhateverTheWomanWantsToRead.wordpress.com
I am always impress with the sexual scenes that C.P. Mandara writes and some of the food play scenes in The Ties That Bind go above and beyond anything I have come across before. I have to say that I will never be able to look at my favorite dessert (Creme Brûlée) the same again.
