Title: The Bondage Club

Author: Alexandrea Weis

Release Date: July 29 2014

A man looking for a new beginning.

Hunter Donovan is a writer who dreamed of penning the great American novel but settled for a job running the family business, Donovan Books. Trapped publishing other people’s stories, Hunter buries his frustrations in vodka and an endless parade of one-night stands.  

A woman with a secret.

Cary Anderson is the perky, petite, and staunchly determined editor who is well versed in erotica fiction.  But Cary has a kinky side that she is struggling to keep hidden from the world.

Fed up with dwindling sales, Hunter hopes to breathe new life into his publishing house by breaking into the risqué world of erotica. He hires Cary to rescue his company and she is keen to show her new boss everything she knows. But what starts out as a lesson in sexual fiction turns into an unexpected roller coaster ride of disastrous romantic encounters. And just when Cary helps stir Hunter’s creative voice, he uncovers the truth about her wicked ways.

Some ties that bind can cut right to the heart in…The Bondage Club.

So, before I began reading The Bondage Club I had an idea in my head of what to expect.  I can honestly say that this story went in a completely different direction and I was so VERY pleasantly surprised.  Getting to know these characters was such a treat. 🙂
Alexandrea Weis tells us a great story in the 3rd person and completely from Hunter Donovan’s POV.  It was a breath of fresh hair to read a novel completely from the male’s perspective.  Hunter wasn’t the typical Alpha male we come to expect. He was written in a way that he seemed so real.  On those pages, he was a regular guy. Struggling with what he wanted and what was expected of him.
In walks Cary.  She walks in with the looks of the typical girl next door. Her tiny frame and innocent appearance throws Hunter off guard.  For some reason she strikes a spark in him and he can’t explain why.  She’s the complete opposite of what he’s normally attracted to but for some reason he just can’t seem to resist her sweet and lively personality.
Cary is the person that will help him get his publishing company into the ever expanding market of erotica romance and onto the e-readers of women everywhere.  She’s been in the industry for some time and they agree to work together to start the new erotica line at Donovan Books.  As they work together to bring on board a well known erotica writer and capitalize on her existing fan base that will follow, Hunter realizes he is way out of his depth on the subject and Cary surprises him at every turn while helping him learn the ropes [pun intended].
For once, it was the man learning and the female teaching or expanding the man’s sexual experience/knowledge… Like I said, a breath of fresh air.  I truly enjoyed this story definitely recommend it.  The Bondage Club was extremely well written and paced so that we have time to get to know Hunter and Cary and become more and more invested in them.
I give this one a 5 BRIGHT SHINY STARS.
