Author: Skye Callahan
Release Date: February 25, 2014
Genre: Erotica
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? Note: This book contains explicit sexual content (including BDSM themes), graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: M/f anal play, bondage, spanking, exhibitionism.

Her muscles seized under his hot grasp. “Let me go,” she whispered through gritted teeth. “Let yourself go.” She met his gaze expecting anger to swirl around his eyes as well, but his face was relaxed—a stark contrast to the tight grip he had on her wrist. “What do you want?” As soon as she stopped trying to pull away, he loosened her grip. He turned his hand over so that it rested palm up on the table. “A nice evening out with you.” “And after that?” “I like you, Lena. And, I suspect there’s far more to you than you’re willing to accept.” She folded her arms across her chest, making sure he wouldn’t have the opportunity to grab her again. “I’m sure you say that to all the girls you pick up at sports bars.” His eyes widened, but he still didn’t move his hand from where it stretched across the table toward her in an invitation. “Now that you mention it, I do.” Lena’s jaw dropped. It wasn’t that she expected him to deny it, but an outright admission was even more disturbing. “You’re the first,” he clarified. “I don’t buy that.” Eric shrugged, “Believe it or not, I don’t usually pick up girls at bars.” “Then where do you usually pick them up?” Eric’s smile widened, and he rubbed his lips together. “Most of the girls I’ve dated I either met through mutual friends or at BDSM clubs.” Lena’s breath echoed in her ears, and she wondered if she heard him wrong. The roar drowned out any thought to move or respond. “I didn’t expect it to freak you out that much.”

Review by Gia:
Bound and Unbroken is a good read!  There is a disclaimer in the front of the book.  It says "This book contains explicit sexual content (including BDSM themes), graphic language, and situations that some may find objectionable: M/F anal play and sex, bondage, spanking, exhibitionism.  In addition to the content mentioned above, there are scenes that deal with self-harm and discussion of previous sexual assault.  If you have difficulty with any of these subjects, proceed with caution."  There are a lot of heavy issues dealt with in this book.    I was a little scared to read it after that warning but the issues mentioned in the warning are dealt in such a way that the flow with the content of the story perfectly.  
The loved Lena and Eric's story.  The book is told in both Lena and Eric's POV.  I am a bid fan of dual POVs because then you get both characters' perspective.  I did find Eric's character to be a little on the creepy side at first but after getting more background on him, I grew to love him. 
There are a lot of things that happen is this story.  Even after reading the disclaimer, I was still surprised by some of the things that happen.   Skye Callahan writes in such a detailed way that I could play the scenes out in the head like I was watching a movie.

About the Author

Skye Callahan has been coming up with stories for as long as she can remember, and by elementary school she was writing them down to share with friends and teachers. Ghosts and vampires were always her favorite beings to write about and those interests led to her debut novella Fractured Legacy in 2013. With Bound and Unbroken, her characters led her on a departure from the paranormal world and into the realm of BDSM romance. When she isn’t spending time with the voices in her head, she works to help other women design their own style of freedom as a consultant for Jamberry Nails, and spends time with her Husband and ferrets.
