Bind and Keep Me

Pierced Hearts, #2

Bind And Keep Me is the second book in Cari Silverwood’s Pierced Hearts series, and it goes even darker and deeper than the first book in the series (Take Me, Break Me). In that book, Jodie’s capture fantasy is fulfilled by Klaus, the man who becomes both her lover and 24/7 Master. But in Bind And Keep Me, Jodie stumbles into a terrible situation that forces Klaus into a series of decisions from which they can never return. As they fall deeper into what becomes their new reality, it remains to be seen if what they've chosen is the best or worst possible outcome.

This book took me to a place I’ve never gone before with Cari Silverwood, and kept me off balance all the way to the ending I could not have predicted. We see how Jodie and Klaus have found the relationship that works for them, although its nature must be kept secret from all both their closest friends. But when Klaus is forced to pick the least worst choice in an effort to save both Jodie and himself from what could send them both to prison, he vaults past any notion of dubious consent well into what no one could deny is non-consensual activity. This is not a capture fantasy. This is real life with real consequences. Can the undeniable love between Jodie and Klaus survive what they have both become?

Make no mistake: Bind And Keep Me is not for everyone, not by a long shot. But if you like reading beautifully written dark erotica with romantic elements, then this book might be for you. I loved it as much as the first one, and couldn't put it down until I was done. And the ending went off into such a perfect alternative to my guess that I'm just as mad to read the next book as I was to read this after completing the first one. You can’t ask for more than that.

Book Blurb for Bind and Keep Me

How far would you go to protect your love and your life?

When two deaths turn his world upside down, Klaus must wrestle with a problem that goes soul deep. With Jodie it was capture fantasy but now he's made the fantasy real, dragging her along as his accomplice. No one should feel so good about something so wrong.

Maybe his soul is darker than he feared. Maybe the rules shouldn't apply to him.

Warning: Dark erotica, Mff with BDSM themes, capture fantasy, and dubious consent.

Contains spanking, bondage, caning and piercing, and one alpha possessive man about to toss aside his morals and take what he wants.
