Author Marie Tuhart Releases Sexy New Erotic Romance, Bound & Teased
Seattle, WA: Author Marie Tuhart has released her newest erotic romance novel, Bound & Teased. Published by Wild Rose Press on August 31, 2015, the novel is a steamy erotic romance that explores what it takes to build trust and love in a committed ménage with alpha males.
Eight years ago, a naive Katie Crane ran from Ry and Jed, warned their brand of love would ruin her life. Now she’s all grown up and returning home with a better understanding of the BDSM lifestyle. After the betrayal she’s faced at her father’s hands, she worries she won’t be strong enough to submit to the men she gave her heart and virginity to at eighteen.
Jed Malloy and Ry McKade are surprised and thrilled by Katie’s return to Felton’s Creek. They’d been heartbroken after her departure and had turned to each other, embracing the BDSM lifestyle without her. Katie’s homecoming sparks hope and worry. Ry isn’t sure he can keep his dominant side under control, and Jed fears Katie will see him as less of a man by being a switch and Ry’s submissive.
Having Katie back could mean the beginning of everything they’ve ever wanted or the end to the only family they’ve ever known.
I received a copy of this book from the author and Paranormal Romance & Authors that rock, in exchange for an honest review. The story revolves around Ry, Jed, and Katie- the MMF ménage and their BDSM tastes. I felt really lost with the plot in the beginning, as if I was reading book two in a series rather than a standalone, it moved too fast and lacked… information. It was basically- girl and the two guys are friends. They have a threesome on girl’s 18th b-day. She leaves them high and dry. Eight years later she returns and it’s like she never left. I wish there would have been more in the beginning that explained their back story. Hell, there could have been a prologue that contained just a few pages of the night of Katie’s b-day. But the story builds as it goes on.
The story is in third person and switches between the character’s POVs. Editing was good, which can be an issue for me at times, so that was a plus. I’ve read quite a few BDSM & MMF/FFM, etc. types of books and there were certain parts during the “play” scenes that felt a little mechanical. Sometimes the words didn’t flow as well as I would have liked. Overall the story wasn’t bad. I have no regrets reading it. I really liked Ry, but that might just be my tastes because I found his overbearing hot-headed alpha @ss sexy.
If you enjoy straight-up BDSM books and like or don’t mind MM/MMF scenes, then this is a read for you. Definitely a book recommended for mature readers only. I give it (4) Fangs baby.
