Sting Factor (kink): 4 out of 5
Rancher Case Turner is a shibari master who prefers his partners submissive, silent and lush. When he meets an outspoken, curvy lawyer from Austin, he’s wild to capture the colorful creature he calls his butterfly. His cho. Yearning to tie her up nice and tight. And defying the rule of the single men in Bravado that they share desirable women, Case plans to keep Samantha Marlowe all for himself.
Sam has a big, bad aversion to Dominants, so resisting Case’s magnetism seems like a wise idea. Yet Case, who usually binds his women to him in erotic public exhibitions, lures her with sweet-talk and humor. Case becomes the lover Sam told herself she’d never have—kind and tender.
But Case wants to tie up her heart, as well as her body—and she’s ready to bolt. If Case puts his heart on the line as well, Sam might admit there’s no rope stronger than love to tie her down.
‘Tie Me Down’ is the second book in the Knights in Black Leather series by Cerise DeLand. This is an enjoyable sexy read. I think this story would have been stronger if the author explored more of the idea that several men in the area share one women, besides just Cara MacRae. The implications were that this type of relationship was common in this town. I would have liked the author to explore the idea of Joel joining Case and Samantha more. Cerise DeLand started to explore that idea of sharing Samantha because Case and Joel had a discussion in regards to that. What the author did not get into was Samantha’s reactions to the idea.
