Overview

Book five of Wicked Play

It's been twenty years since Rockford Fielding's father punished him for kissing another boy. Now a grown man with a military career behind him, Rock continues to deny his true desires, even while working security at The Den, the most decadent sex club in town. But after a year of watching gorgeous Carter Montgomery come and go on the arms of other men, Rock can no longer resist the cravings he's denied for so long.

Carter has just four months left on his contract with an escort agency, and he doesn't know whether to feel relieved or afraid. Being an escort is all he knows. Adding to his confusion is the way his latest client, the sexy but stoic Rock, makes him feel things he hasn't wanted in years.

One charmingly awkward date turns into two and soon the men are meeting off the clock. But with Rock in the closet and Carter unsure how to pursue a real relationship, how can they build a future both in and out of the bedroom?

Each new volume published by Lynda Aicher turn out to be very nice surprises. After some stories situated at The Den, interspersed with actions and BDSM theme, the story of a trio, the author has decided to write a gay story with a lot of class, sensuality and intensity.  Personally, perhaps the best book of the "Wicked" series.  The relationship between Carter and Rock is plausible, touching and super sexy. The sex scenes are intimate, passionate and never fall into the vulgar or the accumulation of details. This is fair and beautiful. The author's way to portray the relationship between the two men touched me deeply. And I remembered that I liked Lynda Aicher's openness and that has attracted me to her work from her first volume. She seeks to provide some tolerance through her stories. All tastes are in nature and sexual practices do not define a person.  Be less judgemental and mind your own business. If people are happy the way they are, you should accept them and be happy with and for them. This is a beautiful breath of fresh air in a romantic and sensitive love story.  Of course, it's not a fairy tale given Carter's profession and the reaction, judgment it may raise. I liked the lack of clichés and the emotions raw.  A beautiful story that can be read independently of the other volumes. Of course, it put an extra dimension, when the stories of the characters appearing in this text, are known by the reader. I've appreciated all the 5 volumes...  A lovely gift for the romantic ones before Valentin's day.. Lucie newbooksonmyselves.blogspot.fr

Be prepared...I may gush on this one. I hadn't heard of this book, just happened to find it. It is 5th in a series. I will admit that I did not read the first four, because I have been reading mostly m/m lately. But you can easily read this as a stand alone. I absolutely loved this story. The moment when the two MC's actually meet is so awkward, but so sweet at the same time. Seeing Rock's transformation, and then watching Carter's is just so touching. They both had different places they wanted to be in their lives when they meet, then suddenly they found that what they wanted was to be together. I love that Rock gave Carter time and space, and didn't berate him, or even ask him to quit his job, despite knowing what he did for a living. He knew almost immediately that he was different, that they were different, and was able to hold onto that, despite knowing that Carter had to finish his contract. What a sweet, sweet story, oh and HOT too! Grab this and enjoy it!

Bonds Of Denial is my first book by Lynda Aicher. Wow! Rock and Carter's story is an emotional roller coaster. Let me start by saying this book is M/M and does include sex scenes, so it may not be for everyone. I thought this book was well written and I love the characters. There's enough drama in this book to equal any M/F romance. Ms Aicher does a great job of showing some of the trials of being gay and also prostitution. This would be a good learning book for some of the anti gay folks to read. Or maybe not, because to be honest, some of the sex scenes had my butt clenching while I was thinking, "Oh that's gotta hurt!" I did enjoy this book and look forward to reading more from Lynda Aicher in the future. Bonds Of Denial is book 5 of the Wicked Play series, but can be read as a stand alone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

This emotionally compelling romance is the story of Rock and Carter. Rock is gay, an ex-soldier who's lived with the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy his whole life, starting from childhood with his military father. He's finally ready to come out (at least privately if not publicly), and has picked Carter to be the man to do it with. Carter is a male escort that Rock has seen at the BDSM club where he works security. His friend Tyler has vouched for Carter and Rock figures that hiring an escort is the best solution for him, someone who will be discreet and will let him finally be himself. Neither of them counts on the stunning attraction between them, one that has them both questioning their pasts, and their future. With love on the line, will they be willing to take a chance on each other? I loved this story! Though it's part of the Wicked Play series that has the backdrop of the BDSM club The Den, it isn't a BDSM romance. Both main characters have issues to deal with - in Rock's case it's the obvious one, that he's never let himself be gay in mind or body until now. As the story progresses he becomes more and more comfortable expressing himself and really letting himself be the man he wants to be. Interestingly enough Carter has the opposite thing happen - he starts out as this confident, cocky and self assured man, relatively content with his escort life. But with Rock, that confidence erodes and he begins to see himself through the eyes of society, becoming less of a man in his own eyes - not that Rock does anything to make him feel this way except by accepting all of him. I found that really interesting, how one man's view of himself gets better while the other's gets worse. It was really a fascinating way to propel the story forward. There is no doubt that the sexual chemistry between Rock and Carter is part of what propels the story and the sex scenes between them are sizzling hot as they go from one night to more. There is a tenderness and emotion to their lovemaking from the beginning, despite how both of them would rather keep the emotion out of the equation. But it's only a question of time before their hearts are involved. I loved how the conflict and resolution came about, and the ending was perfect in my eyes. Every story in this series has packed an emotional punch no matter the sex of the couple involved. Each one has featured something different but equally compelling and this one was a wonderful addition to the series. 5 stars.
