Gaven still has a great deal of training to endure under Vlar’s less than gentle tutelage. The pain, mixed with pleasure, is something he comes to expect from Vlar. And while he tries to hate the man who has introduced him to such passion, his heart refuses to comply.

After so much time of not knowing his place, Gaven is thrust into yet another situation. When the passion between he and Vlar heightens, Gaven freely gives his blood to the Finnarian and the connection between the two changes. The deeper feelings baffle Vlar so he calls for assistance from one person he trusts to hold the answers - his father. The answer is simple, but can Gaven live with the new expectations?

J.C. Owens’ latest installment The Bonding is the sequel to Gaven. Gaven is still unsure of how he fits into his new position and life. While he has grown in many ways, he is still full of self-doubt. But through it all, all he wants is to be loved by those around him; to feel protected, cherished and recognized as a member of their community. His emotions are all over the place when it comes to Vlar, which made his life more difficult. Vlar is a hard being and while he’s not always a gentle man, he does care for Gaven. He sees what Gaven is too blind to see in himself…the strength, determination, and skills he possesses below the surface. He also understands that Gaven is worthy of love.

Those who enjoyed Gaven will be enraptured with the latest release. And if you haven’t read the first story I highly recommend doing so before you begin The Bonding for maximum enjoyment. J.C. Owens mixes action, suspense, and testosterone-driven erotic scenes to create a story that kept me enthralled from the first word to the final period.
