Book Review – Bound and Bonded Series by Lisa Oliver

Blurb for book one – Only 99p on AmazonUK

Submissive wolf shifter Levi has met his mate, the one he wants to call Master. The problem is the Master concerned wants him for nothing more than a regular Saturday night scene and thanks to the rules the man has put in place there is nothing Levi can do about it.

Thanks to the war Steel is a damaged wolf. He knows Levi is his mate and wants nothing more than to claim him. But to do that means spilling more secrets than Steel has ever been willing to share with anyone. Does he have it in him to tell Levi what is going on, or should he release him to another Master at the club?

Two men who want each other – rules and secrets standing in their way.

Warning – this book is based on BDSM concepts and contains graphic scenes of M/M sex, strong language in places and a small amount of violence, plus an HEA. Please do not buy if you find these concepts objectionable.

28,000 words plus a sample chapter from the next book of the series.

My Review

I was wary when I first saw the title and book covers for this series. I’ve read a fair few bad BDSM books and I had decided to steer clear of them. However, I had already read a lot of Lia Oliver’s books and I knew her style wasn’t to ever promote abuse or non-consent and after reading the reviews from other readers I decided to give it a try. And I’m glad I did.

This series is full of respect and love. The stories are so well written you forget the setting and are focused on the growing relationships between all the varying characters.

Like last week I am going to focus on my favorite book in the series, so this review doesn’t end up longer than some of my stories. Therefore, today I am going to focus on Fighting the Fangs.

As you may guess from the title this book has a vampire in it. I like in this that the mate everyone takes to be the smallest and therefore weakest is actually the one that is physically stronger (and older).

The wolf shifter in this book has a hard time accepting his mating due to the way he was raised. His Vamp doesn’t give up though and when the wolf decides to sacrifice himself for his perceived crimes the vamp sets in and defends his mate. The wolf in this gets a lot of lessons in mates and just what would happen if either of them were to be killed. The reader gets to see the slow change in a once perceived bigoted wolf. They get to see him become a loving mate and master to the vamp.

My favorite bit of this book is near the end. Another character is interfering in the mates spending time together and so the mate of the interfering character, along with the alpha and alpha mate hatch a plan and show the interfering wolf exactly what would happen if a vamp is left without his mate for too long.

The results are both expected and unexpected. Although, you will have to read it for yourself to see what I mean <add in evil laugh 😉 >

As always a highly recommended read 5*s

      I’m glad to know I’m not the only one loving this book of the series. I have to keep reminding myself that I don’t need to reread every book I’m currently reviewing lol. I’d never get any writing done.
