Lawyer Allison English never planned to return to The Den—despite her naughty fantasies about being bound by owner Seth Matthews. But when club guest Tyler Wysong is injured in a scene, Seth turns to Allie for help. Aroused by both men, Allie should turn the case down. But she can't…

After his bad experience, Tyler has no interest in being with another Dom. Yet he can't deny his attraction to Master Seth. When Seth offers him a place to stay, Tyler agrees—if Allie will stay too. But what good is a chaperone who adds to his temptation?

Living with two subs brings out Seth's protective instincts, though Allie insists she's not into the lifestyle, and Tyler swears he's done with it. But the chemistry between the trio prompts them to agree to submit to him for one week, and he'll show them both the true pleasure that a Dom can provide.

The intimacy could break them all, or bind them together forever…

Who says prostitutes can't find love? In BONDS OF DESIRE, a male escort finds his soul mates in his two saviors.

When Seth Matthews, part owner of exclusive BDSM club The Den, sees submissive Tyler Windsong in a Scene that turns dangerous and most certainly not consensual, he makes the tough decision to intervene. The Dom abusing him isn't just a high profile member of the club, but he's also a prominent local politician. But Tyler is a male escort who was paid to allow this man to hurt him and refuses to press charges, even when Seth brings in high powered attorney Allison English to help his case.

As Tyler heals at Seth's house with the caveat that Allie stay too, the three find themselves in the middle of an attraction they can't ignore. But Allie just doesn't understand what's happening. She's convinced it's one man, one woman. Or same sex couples...key being COUPLES. 2. Dos. Duo. Three just is beyond she can comprehend, but damn if she doesn't want it desperately nevertheless. Tyler can't believe that these two generous and beautiful people want a whore like him, but he's determined to enjoy it while it lasts.

When the proverbial shit hits the fan and the three have to come out of their bubble and face some seriously tough decisions, it turns into a race to see who's the first to run from their feelings.

BONDS OF DESIRE is the third book in the Wicked Play series featuring a set of friends who own or play at The Den, an exclusive BDSM club. This story features owner Seth, attorney Allie and male escort Tyler. In previous books, it was clear that Seth had his eye on Tyler, and I was glad to hear their story in this book since I love me some MMF lovin'! My heart broke constantly for Tyler, who didn't see any way to survive other than to sell his body to well-paying men. His experience at The Den was enough to scar anyone, but his positive and playful attitude didn't show any weaknesses to his lovers.

While Allie came off as pretty judgmental in the beginning, I could understand her questions and concerns. She led an extremely vanilla lifestyle, nothing preparing her for the possibility of falling for two men who also fell for each other. Seth was pretty moody and brooding for most of BONDS OF DESIRE, and quite frankly, the other two's excessive usage of "the Dom" or "Master Seth" to refer to the man drove me a little crazy. Additionally, I would've liked Seth and Allie to address the possibility of STD's and Tyler getting tested given his sexual profession.

Overall, the three of them had insane chemistry that trumped the minor issues mentioned, and since I love this series, this author and some decadent guy on guy on girl action, BONDS OF DESIRE receives 4 stars from this reader.
