Lara approaches her best friend’s brother about marrying her in order to save her family’s company.  Connor agrees, provided Lara is his wife and submissive in truth. 

The first book in The Donovan Dynasty, Bind, is an intense book that gives a look behind the scenes in the closed world of corporations, as well as BDSM.  I liked that the author did a good job showing that a BDSM relationship between a Dom and sub is what the couple makes it.  There was only one issue I had regarding this and that was the whip, as that would not be something used in the beginning on someone new.  However, I loved the references used regarding the ‘Indiana Jones’ franchise.

Connor is very patient with Lara, especially explaining things to her, but he makes it clear what he expects should he help her.  The chemistry between the two is very intense and I had fun watching their relationship grow.  I’m glad Connor finally came around in one area at the end of their story.

There were several interesting secondary characters and I loved Connor’s assistant.  I had to laugh at that relationship as it provided some lighthearted moments, as did Lara’s neighbor and her dog, Suzy.  I wanted to slap Lara’s father, but he redeemed himself at the end.  Both families were interesting, to say the least, and had a lot to say about Connor’s and Lara’s relationship. 

It will be interesting to see how this series turns out as it is about the three Donovan brothers, though I hope to see one about Erin as well.  The author included an interview about the series at the end of Bind.
