Excerpt and Review: Coming Unbound by Lacey Savage

Blurb:

Ginny and Cole have struggled to connect intimately since before their marriage. When Cole suggests they surprise each other with the most sexually daring things they can dream up for their anniversary, Ginny reluctantly musters every ounce of courage she possesses to get nipple piercings.

Cole’s surprise?

He’s turned their suburban basement into a dungeon—and hired a sexy Dom to teach them the art of BDSM.

Desperately in love with his wife, Cole’s aware of sensitive sexual demons in Ginny’s past, and will try anything to beat them. Whips, toys, ménage play with the Dom…all these and more could help Ginny find pleasure, break through her issues.

Or, if they’re not careful, possibly just break Ginny.

Excerpt:

I groped for my cocktail glass then drained it. "Now, are you going to answer my question or not?"

She pursed her lips for a moment before replying. "Men want whores."
My stomach bottomed out. That wasn't at all the answer I'd expected. It went against everything I believed.

I motioned for her to go on with a flick of my trembling hand.

"They also want a woman who's confident in her own skin. Someone secure enough in her sexuality to tease them, taunt them, play with them."

The blood drained from my face. That wasn't me at all. I liked sex well enough, but Cole was the one who initiated our romantic encounters almost all the time.

"What they don't want," Donna continued, "is someone who just lies there and takes it." She sipped her martini and furrowed her brows. "Why are you asking me this?"

I sucked in a breath and considered lying or changing the subject. But my heart pounded hard against my breastbone, and I needed to know more. "Cole wants us to spice things up for our anniversary," I blurted. "And I have no idea what to do."

"Is that all?" Donna laughed, the humor crinkling her eyes. "Geez, girl, you scared me. You were so serious. I thought you were getting a divorce or something."

I swallowed hard but said nothing. A divorce might not be too far off. Cole had married a woman with little sexual experience and no interest in learning anything beyond the particulars of inserting Tab A into Slot B, and I couldn't help but wonder if he had a Lilian of his own. Cole worked as a technician at a medical laboratory. Had someone there already offered to hop on a photocopy machine and spread her legs for him?

The thought soured my stomach. I set my empty glass aside and gripped Donnas hands. "Help me."

Her eyes widened. She squeezed my fingers in a supportive gesture, and I was insanely grateful she wasnt laughing.

"Okay, well, you must have some idea. Think about a fantasy of yours Something you haven't gotten to act out but would like to." I must have looked completely blank, because Donna sighed. She signaled a waiter who was passing by. "We're going to need more alcohol.."

My Thoughts:

I thought this was a really good story. I enjoyed the characters and the writing. I loved Cole! The story was spicy and held my attention. I will be reading more from this author in the future. I would recommend this book to anyone that would like a little forray into the D/s world.
