I’d only meant to surrender my body but with time, he drove my soul to submit.

Ashamed of the woman she allowed herself to become, Sloane Montgomery sets out to repair the self-inflicted damage done to her life. A new town holds her new beginning and when Leo Calloway arrives everything changes.

Captivated by Leo and his dark desires, Sloane wonders if her fascination with his dominance goes deeper than fantasy. Has she been seeking punishment to atone for the sins of her past all along? Though Leo’s brutal lust is what first enthralls her, the bonds of trust they form could have the power to heal her.

When the ties to her former life threaten to take hold of her again, the passion binding her to Leo may be the key to her ultimate release.

Christina’s Four Star Review

After ending a three-year toxic relationship with a married man, Sloane has moved to the small town of Salem, where she begins a job at a family bookstore. She had originally set out to write a book about her experience as a way to heal from the pain of her failed relationship, but is quickly caught up in small town life and all of the possibilities that await her. The last thing she had expected was to fall into some serious lust with one of her employers Leo, co-owner of the local bookstore. When the mysterious Leo begins to open up a part of Sloane’s sexuality she had never explored, the two become close. But will the pain of her past relationship keep Sloane from moving on? Will Leo be able to break past the trust issues Sloane has when it comes to her love life?

Roth writes some seriously swoon-worthy heroes and Leo is no exception. He’s an alpha with a sensitive side and the way he interacts with not only Sloane but the rest of his family as well is endearing. I had a little hard time connecting with Sloane as she did come across as a little wishy washy and weak, but I did like that it seemed as though she became more empowered as the book went on. As expected, Roth creates characters that are easy to love and a story that is easy to get lost in.

If you’re not into BDSM romances, please don’t let the label dissuade you from giving this one a try. Bindings is a beginner’s journey into a consensual D/s arrangement and the budding relationship between Sloane and Leo is just as sweet as it is spicy. Be forewarned though, while not listed as part of a series this book does end on a cliffhanger!
