Bondage

Overview

Sara never meant to lose control. In all her relationships before Anthony, she had always been the seducer. She had called the shots. Set the rules. Dominated. So when exactly did she let go? When did he become the conqueror, she the slave? Whenever it had happened, she knew it was too late now. Sex - the game she played best, the game at which she was master - suddenly had a whole new set of rules. It was, Sara thought, like having to start all over again....

Overview

Sara never meant to lose control. In all her relationships before Anthony, she had always been the seducer. She had called the shots. Set the rules. Dominated. So when exactly did she let go? When did he become the conqueror, she the slave? Whenever it had happened, she knew it was too late now. Sex - the game she played best, the game at which she was master - suddenly had a whole new set of rules. It was, Sara thought, like having to start all over again.... In Bondage, the new novel by Patti Davis, author of the bestsellers Home Front, A House of Secrets, and Dead Fall and the non-fiction book about her parents, Ronald and Nancy Reagan, The Way I See It, be prepared to meet a whole new cast of characters. Sara is a child of California, grown up and grown old at age thirty-five as only a woman could who has lived so much in so short a time. A costume designer for movies and television, it is through work that she meets her best friend, Belinda, a very vulnerable and needy young woman who envies Sara her ease with her own sexuality, her ability to dominate and control the men who want her. Sara has never questioned sex or her own sexuality. She likes it, is comfortable with it, and uses it whenever she wants. She begins and ends relationships with ease, taking what enjoyment she can before going on to the next. Then she meets Anthony, the hot new director of the moment. With him she begins a relationship that propels her into uncharted territories and that ultimately threatens to consume her.... In Bondage, Patti Davis has written a novel for the '90s that is shocking and startling, yet speaks to the hidden desires of women and men. It is a novel about a new kind of sexuality, at once a thriller and a dark love story.

The New York Times bestselling author of Homefront and The Way I See It--and the daughter of Ronald and Nancy Reagan--has made national headlines with this sensational novel of sexual abandon. Now in paperback, here is Patti Davis's shockingly frank erotic thriller.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Davis's lurid thriller chronicles a woman's high-voltage affair with a mysterious film director. (Jan.)
Library Journal
Davis presents Sara and Belinda, two Hollywood women whose fantasies so twist their search for love that they're doomed to fail. When Sara, a costume designer, finds Tony, a film director she can't dominate, they experiment with threesomes and bondage. That's fun until boundaries get crossed. Meanwhile, Belinda, a hairdresser, falls for Philip, a New Age prophet. Instead of absolving her guilt, he compounds it. Then a humiliated Sara seeks revenge. Bondage is a shallow work about superficial people-a soap opera tragedy with titillating episodes. Narrator Sally Kirkland can't read this tawdry trash any better than author Davis can pound it out. Not recommended.-James Dudley, Copiague, N.Y.
Ilene Cooper
Davis' career as a writer continues to jerk along. Previously, her literary efforts have been based entirely on being the daughter of Ronald and Nancy Reagan. Davis worried this bone until even she must have tired of it. Now, as the title of this book so simply and eloquently says, she's moved on to bondage. Will her fans move with her? It's anybody's guess. Davis probably felt very daring writing this poor man's version of "The Story of O", but the only thing really going for it is its camp value. Sara, the heroine, and her friend Belinda both have problems with men and domination. Sara's confusion leads her to a dungeon in the home of a powerful Hollywood producer while Belinda's leads her to jump off a cliff. Before that, there's lots of psychobabble about relationships and lots of sex--his and hers, hers and hers, his and two hers, well, you get the picture. Much of it is rough sex as well, with rape, whips, and daggers all playing roles. Not that any of it rings true. The final scene, in which Sara gets back at her lover, Anthony, by luring him to the dungeon and tying a few Boy Scout knots where they'll hurt the most may elicit groans from Anthony, but expect giggles from everyone else. The flap copy states that Davis is an actress as well as a novelist. Ain't flap copy grand?

    Sensual and exciting bondage for beginners

    In the book, a woman is gently introduced into BDSM by an experienced and well equipped gentlemen. Although she is afraid at first, he gently guides her and wins her over. Towards the end of the story Sara is playing with gusto, imagination, and willing to try anything. Her transition is well described and, I think, believable.

    Unfortunately the two main characters don't communicate well: A common problem in normal relationships but a potentially disastrous one in a BDSM based relationship. When one partner is tied up or gagged and cannot stop an activity they don't want or enjoy, it can severely damage a relationship or worse lead to physical harm. That's why there are safe words and the mantra Safe, Sane, and Consensual. In the story, Anthony goes beyond Sara's limits, the situation gets complicated, tragic and all too real.

    It's a very enjoyable and satisfying book. It's also educational for people wishing to explore the world of BDSM.

    A Young Readers Review

    Patti Davis is a great writer, and 'Bondage' was an excellent book, Once I picked it up I just could not put it down. I just wish it was longer so I would not have finshed it so fast. I give 'Bondage' by 'Patti Davis' 4 Stars because its very detailed, excellent choice of words, and it shows the struggle for domaniance between men and women. I would have given it 5 Stars but it starts to drift off topic in the middle a little, other than that 'Bondage' by 'Patti Davis' is number 1 in my book.
