SUMMARY
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.

BOUND & TEASED features two hot men, a flogger and a submissive willing to do their bidding.

As a teenager, Katie Crane was terrified by the relationship that Ryland McKade and Jedidiah Malloy wanted from her. She fled, but now, eight years later, Katie is back and ready for what her men want from her. Ry and Jed have waited patiently for Katie to return home so they could finally claim her as theirs. Dominant Ry and switch Jed know in their hearts that their Katie is a submissive to her bones, and that once their ménage is complete, they'll never let her go. Katie seems unsurprised by the whips and chains and handcuffs that Ry and Jed show her, but will she be so accepting when she learns the two men are lovers? Or when the reasons she left them come back to haunt her?

So, on the surface, BOUND & TEASED had everything I like in a book: an MMF ménage with delicious guy-on-guy lovin', some BDSM and a thread of suspense. I don't know what it was about this book, but something didn't do it for me. Maybe it was the fact that after not seeing each other for ten years, the three didn't have a nice long conversation about what went wrong, instead just jumping right into this weird BDSM relationship like a day never passed. Maybe it was that the three had no chemistry at all, or maybe it was that none of them were particularly likable characters. I just couldn't connect with any of them or empathize with their situations. Maybe it was that the men seemed to just like playing with as many toys as possible and having someone kneel for them more than any sort of real, lasting relationship. The sex seemed like something straight out of a "how to" manual instead of an erotic romance, and honestly, my switch was flipped to OFF anytime the three played. I found myself skimming the storyline instead of savoring it because it had zero depth (though plenty of gratuitous and graphic sex).

And as it turns out, the thread of suspense was nothing more than a piece of lint on an ugly Christmas sweater. While it was technically written well and had only a few editing issues, there just wasn't anything about BOUND & TEASED that captivated me and made me invested.

Bottom Line: I'm sure that some will find this a wildly erotic and fabulous read, but for me it fell totally flat.
