Book Review: Bound and Unbroken (Out of Bounds #1) by Skye Callahan

Who knew that a chance meeting at a bar could alter the course of your life? When Lena's roommate drags her out one night, she finds herself sitting alone at the bar. Until a handsome strangers sits down next to her. Though she tends to keep herself well hidden within her walls, he inexplicably has a way of getting under her skin and drawing her out. Eric has more than enough on his plate right now and really doesn't have the time for a new, inexperienced sub. But he just can't stay away.

Lena clearly has some serious demons in her past causing her to his in this shell. But Eric makes her want to crack them; to be her true self and finally indulge in her dark fantasies. While she is brand new to the world of BDSM, Eric knows it is what she both wants and needs and he slowly introduced her to it. What follows is a sensual journey of erotic exploration. I loved how Eric truly wanted to get Lena to open back up and of course I enjoyed the techniques he used to get her there. You could feel the pain of her past suffocating her and you could feel the relief when she finally starts to set it free.

I would have liked for this to have been a bit longer so that Eric and Lena would have had more time getting to know one another. There was room for additional character development and relationship development that could have brought this up to the next level.

I did enjoy this book, especially the BDSM aspect, and I will look for future books in this series.

Lena is about to discover pleasure in the things she can’t control.
To get even with her roommate for dragging her to a sports bar on a Friday night, Lena begins flirting with the handsome stranger who sits at the bar next to her. Their anonymous conversation leads to a shared cab ride, but Lena’s conscience puts a damper on the evening—leaving the near-fling to become a memory. Until she finds him roaming the halls of the school where she teaches.

Will she submit to his desires?

Eric’s only reason for returning to his hometown is to care for his recently orphaned nephew. He knew the return would involve dredging up his past with family and friends, but he didn't expect a lone girl to capture his interest and offer an escape within his new life.

Will his binds be enough to keep her?
