Bound is the 5th book in Dani’s Sins of Seven series. The books are all interconnected standalones, so theoretically, you could read it alone, but why wouldn’t want you want to read them all, I mean, come on. Great stories, sexy heroes and heroines, and great happy sexy times. What more can you possibly want? Every one of the books is based on one of the Seven Deadly Sins, and it’s generally pretty easy to figure out which one you are reading about. The books also all center around the Seven Sins, this time as in a BDSM club owned and run by friends Carrick and Mason. Carrick has a wife and submissive named Peyton, who is best friends with Mason’s sub, Savannah. Read Carrick and Peyton’s story in Indulge.
Anyway, through the last 4 books, it’s always been Mason and Savvie as the perfect couple. They are so in love and so involved with each other. They are like binary stars that orbit each other and they are always aware of where the other is. Mason is always the one who smacks people around and talks sense into them and helps them get through their stupidity when they are being stupid. Savannah has been there to support people and help them feel better when the world is falling apart. They have always seemed like there is nothing that could break them apart. Buuuutttt… Well, we’d have a short book if that’s all there was to it, wouldn’t we?
We’ve never known much about how Mason and Savvie get together, but we start out 4 years in the past and learn how they got together, which is really nice. He needed a demo model at the club, and she applied. And 4 years later, they are the perfect couple. Except…
We all know that the perfect couple from the outside aren’t usually perfect from the inside, and even Mason and Savannah aren’t perfect. They are both hiding things, from themselves and from others.
I was really glad to get the backstory of Mason and Savannah as a couple and their individual backstories. Having that insight always helps us to understand the characters more, both this book and in other books. It’s really interesting to go back and look at what I know of Savvie and Mason from the other books through the eyes that have read this book. Does that sentence make sense? You know what I mean, anyway. I was sitting at the grocery store with my husband waiting for the cab to take us home while I was reading this, and there were legit tears running down my face while I was waiting. Poor husband, he was worried. I was like, no, sad part of the book. He was like ahhhh. He no longer wants me to explain why the book is sad because I have to go from the very beginning of the story, and there have been some that are very convoluted. Now I just tell him if he really wants to know, I will give him the book to read. Luckily no one else asked why I was crying. We all know how much I love a Dani Rene book, and this one is definitely no different. I truly loved it, even as I had tears running down my face. When the last 2 books come out, I’m going to binge read the entire series, which is going to be awesome.
Oh, man, yeah, I know that I usually have some sorta spoiler-y thing down here, but I’m not all that sure what I can put down here. I think that I have one or two things that I can say.
I both like and hate Uncle Marcello. He’s fucking sneaky. He has some serious ulterior motives, I know he does. Anything he’s done, he’s had 57 reasons to do.
Cousin Alexei, I’m really hoping we see more of him because he’s complex, and he’s complex in the way that I like.
That’s all about this one, so go check it out. Happy reading!
