REVIEW: Peyton Powell has confirmed that men are controlling the women in her life…including her. A strange quirk of fate may have freed Peyton of this ignominy, but just as she begins to enjoy freedom from her martial bondage another form of servitude is lying in wait. In BOUND: Seduced Into Submission, Angie Daniel’s latest installment in her erotic series, Peyton is paying for another’s misjudgment.

This series chronicles the erotic adventure of a former stay-at-home mom who now works as a magazine editor-in-chief and author of a column about things that spur a woman’s curiosity. Her job and membership in an “adventurous” women’s club have exposed her to a whole new world outside her dull marriage.

Peyton is still guilt-ridden by her feelings for her boss, Creed Kirkland, and her perceived loyalties to a husband who is blatantly unfaithful and controlling. It took some time, but a life altering event has Peyton reevaluating her “relationship” with Creed. For the first time in her adult life, she is free to do as she pleases without having to answer to anyone.  She can dress as she likes and say the one word that was absent from her vocabulary, “NO!”.  She now has the strength to make important business decisions without remorse and Creed is taking notice of her newfound liberation. An independent, free-thinking woman is new to him and he likes it.

The primary setting for
BOUND is still Virginia with one sizzling trip to Philadelphia. In addition to Peyton and Creed, other characters impacting the story include Peyton’s husband, Ray; his Aunt Ruth, their live-in sitter; Peyton’s twin daughters, Morgan and Michelle, and Ray’s girlfriend, Haley. Also making a critical appearance are Peyton’s controlling father; her mother; her sister, Olivia and her husband, Christopher.

Each installment in this series is full of twists and turns and ups and downs. From beginning to end,
BOUND was no exception. The opening paragraph grabs the reader and plunges you into a downward spiral and the ending, in typical Daniels’s style, has you gasping for air. As with previous novels in this series, this tale is not for the faint at heart. BOUND was probably the tamest of the series thus far but be reminded this is an erotic tale that details explicit encounters between Peyton and Creed. Fans of this genre will be pleased, but I encourage new readers to start the series from the beginning to fully understand the intricacies of this twisted tale.
