    Vivi's Review for Romance with Flavor Blog

    Bondage & Breakfast. What a concept? This is the fourth book in this series, but my first read for both the series and the author. Ms. Griffin has been on my TBR list for a while now. Because of a recommendation from a friend and fellow reviewer, I moved the book up on my list. I'm very happy I did.

    Forbidden Obsession covers the developing relationship of Gabe McConnell and Olivia (Liv) Watterson. Liv was injured on the job in an accident. She is a paramedic, but was training to become a fire fighter. As you can tell from her choice of professions, Liv is a tough, independent female who can take care of herself. Well, the problem with these females (and I know first hand) is we make things hard for the people around us if something happens that we cannot be the superwomen we think we are. Due to Liv's injuries, she is in a state of vulnerability. She's questioning her abilities and the choices she has and will make in her life. Although Liv is in this state of flux, she is still a strong heroine and holds her own against all the changing factor in her world, including Gage. I liked her spunk and the fact she was strong enough to trust her body, mind, and heart to someone else.

    Gabe owns Bondage & Breakfast. Who can't love a man bold enough to open something call Bondage & Breakfast? Gage is struggling through his own issues when Liv comes to stay with him. He's had trouble at the B&B. He's working to renovate it after the fire and the death of a girl who set the fire. Gabe is questioning his life and his purpose, struggling with whether to reopen the B&B. Olivia bring to his life what was missing. Someone to truly care for and love, a submissive who needed him as much as he needed her. I loved Gabe's sweet, educational approach to Liv's submersion in the lifestyle. But I definitely could understand Liv's frustration with him treating her as if she were as breakable as blown glass.

    The chemistry between Gabe and Liv is like fire. I definitely felt the frustration of the unfilled play throughout the book. I was very happy for the both of the when they finally gave into the desires and finalized the deal. I truly appreciated the fact the characters are not twenty-something younsters just coming into their lives, but with millions of dollars and cars that cost more than my house. The characters are real people, with real jobs. People you can connect with and root for.

    I enjoyed my journey with Gabe and Liv. I'm  definitely going back to read the other books in the series.

    Excellent series -- keepers

    This is the fourth in the Bed and Bondage series by Jodie Griffin. The character of Gabe (who runs the B&B) is great -- I particularly liked his reaction when he found out he was a murder suspect. The plots are suspenseful, the BDSM play works, the characters keep me involved. I've bought all four and would definitely go for a fifth by this author.
