Overview

"A searing...adventure of suspense, love and passion"(New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh) from the popular author of Decadent.

With her brother wrongfully accused of embezzling millions, Kerry Sullivan can't face one more humiliating hang-up from the man she's begging for help. Rafael Dawson may be one of the top electronic security experts in the country-and the only man who can prove her brother's innocence- but his phone manners are appalling. Too bad kidnapping the man isn't an option. Or is it?

There's nothing Kerry wouldn't do for her brother, and there are lots of things she longs to do to Rafe Dawson when he's lying tied-up and naked in her secret hideaway. But when the tables get turned, Kerry finds herself at Rafe's mercy. And the only way to get her way is to let him have his way-with her.

    exciting romantic suspense

    Kerry Sullivan needs a computer security expert to prove her ailing brother Mark did not embezzle three million dollars from his employer the Tampa Standard National Bank. The FBI believes they have a perfect case as the web forensic evidence points in every way towards Mark. A desperate Kerry tries to plead her case with techno-guru Rafael Dawson, but he hangs up on her. <BR/><BR/>When Rafael arrives at the Tampa Airport, Kerry and her sibling¿s best friend Jason trick him into thinking she is his hostess and he his chauffeur. Kerry takes the drugged Rafael to the love shack of Justin¿s womanizing uncle. Tied up and naked Rafael looks perfect to Kerry, but first she wants her sibling¿s freedom. Rafael frees himself and ties up his hostess. However, he soon finds he needs to help her; willingly he does an illegal transaction in order to prove to the Feds that they have the wrong man locked up. However, commitment to Kerry is asking too much of a person who does not believe in relationships after observing his acrimonious father destroy his mother. <BR/><BR/>This is a reprint of a 2006 book written under the name of Shelley Bradley. Though the lead couple breaks the law, fans of romantic suspense will appreciate this fine thriller starring likable protagonists, whose motivations in their lifestyles are further described by a strong support cast. A final confrontation seems over the top for the clever culprit even though the audience like the hero will consider the individual one of the prime suspects. Still this is a fine contemporary that besides trying to nail the felon will leave the audience wondering can Rafael overcome his deep rooted belief no one can love him to make it with the woman who does. <BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    A fantastic book by a terrific author

    Kerry is desperate. Her brother Mark is in prison, but he is innocent. She knows that someone tried to frame him. The big problem is that no one wants to believe her. She tried to hire the top electronic security expert in the country, Rafe Dawson, but he didn't listen to her pleas, when she had called him. So she has to use more drastic measures. When Rafe arrives in Tampa to work for the bank, where Mark had worked and where the embellishment too place, she greets him at the airport and tell him that she works for the bank and that she is his hostess. Rafe is immediately attracted to her and follows her to the limo that waits for them. Kerry's plan is set into motion, she drugs and kidnapps him. It was a well thought plan, but there is one think that she didn't include in this plan, her own attraction toward Rafe. Soon she is more Rafe's prisoner than he hers. Together they work on clearing Mark's name and fighting some demons from Rafe's past. This book is a wonderful story. It's a fun read. Kerry and Rafe are perfect team and the interaction between those two is described in great way. The sparks are flying between those two and the pages are sometimes burning. The suspense part of the story is also very well written. I love it when you not immeadiately know who the real criminal is. All together the book is a real page turner and you won't be able to put it down. I can hardly wait for the sequel 'Strip Search'. By the way, this book is definitely no porn, it's an erotic romance.

    3.75 stars-I read as a re-release written under Shayla Black: BO

    3.75 stars-I read as a re-release written under Shayla Black: BOUND AND DETERMINED is the first book in Shayla Black’s Sexy Capers re-released contemporary, romance adult series. This is Kerry Sullivan and Rafe Dawson’s story.
    Kerry Sullivan needs to prove her brother’s innocence.  Charged with the theft of over three million dollars from the bank in which he works, Mark Dawson awaits trial in prison not knowing who or why he was set up to take the fall.  Kerry hopes to get computer expert and one-time hacker Rafe Dawson to find the proof that her brother has been framed.  But when all calls and attempts to contact are met with dead ends, hang ups and threats, Kerry resorts to one final desperate attempt-kidnap Rafe Dawson and hold him hostage until he agrees to take her brother’s case.
    What ensues is the building of a relationship between Kerry and Rafe-one that started with Rafe drugged and in hand-cuffs and ended with a broken heart and shattered dreams.  Rafe turns the tables on his would –be captor and demands 48 hours to do whatever he wants to and with Kerry in return for his assistance.  What Rafe never expected was to fall in love with the woman who once held him hostage.
    The storyline follows Rafe and Kerry as they begin to uncover a trail that leads to the person behind Mark’s fraudulent charges. But along the way friends, family and co-workers must be ruled out before the identity of the person responsible is revealed.  The reader is taken on a roller coaster ride of one woman’s attempts to right the wrongs against her brother and in doing so, she will fall in love with a man who believes he is not worthy of love or affection.
    The storyline is fast paced; the secondary characters are colorful if not limited in their exposure as most of the storyline is spent in the developing relationship between Kerry and Rafe and, the search for clues about the missing money and its connections to Kerry’s brother Mark. Through reflection and conversation we learn the background into both Kerry and Rafe’s family history and the real reason Rafe considers himself unworthy of Kerry’s love.
    Shayla Black combines the search for the truth with the building of a relationship that will end with a broken heart for two people who would never have met had it not been for an act of betrayal against someone close. The outcome was predictable but the ride to the end was entertaining.
    If you like a love story with a little mystery, a little suspense and a whole lot of sexual heat, BOUND AND DETERMINED is the perfect read with imperfect people who know something about determination and love.

    Read a bit before you buy this

    I probably wouldn't buy another Shayla Black book unless I'd read a good part of it in the store. I'm seriously not a fan of the cover, or perhaps the title. I prefer covers that don't announce that I'm reading this genre to whomever is around me. The charectors were bubble gum pleasant, especially the main two, and the plot was horribly predictable. All that being said, I'd be really interested in reading a follow on story about the brother as long as it was well developed.

    OMG!!

    I read an exert from Chapter one on Mrs. Bradley's website and I had to have it. After hunting it down I ripped through the first half of the story. It was so great. Kerry is the main character. Her brother Mark was wrongly accused of a crime and now sits in jail. Kerry is usually a shy mousey woman who decides to take matters into her own hands. She kidnaps the very strong handsome stranger that is a computer expert but doesn't look like any nerd she's ever met. But with a little mickey slipped into his drink he is out and the plan is launched. She ties him up and keeps him at a cottage where no one knows where they are to try to convince him to help her brother. When Rafe comes to he is truly livid and doesn't even want to listen to her emotional rambling. he has a bigger agenda and if he doesn't get out of this perdiciment he wont make his quota which will devistate him. it doesn't take long before Kerry becomes the one bound and the tables turn on her. Even though this story about Rafe and Kerry comes to a conclusion the story Strip Search by Mrs. Bradley launches into Mark's life. Even though this is not one of Mrs. Bradley's GREATEST work i truly loved it and was interested the entire time.

    Should be in Porn category

    I'm no prude, but this was pure unadulterated porn.. I gave up less than a third of the way into the book and put it in the garbage. Normally I will skip past a paragraph or two if too graphic for my taste but this whole book was a skip... too graphic. Will not be buying anymore of her books.

    Bound and Determined

    To save her brother from being unjustly convicted of embezzlement, Kerry Sullivan will go to any lengths and sacrifice anything at all, even her honor. The first phase of her plan is to kidnap computer whiz Rafe Dawson and force him to trace the evidence, but things go awry when he turns the table son her. Rafe will do as she asks, but only after she gives him forty eight hours of total submission. Unfortunately for both of them, not only is the case rather impossible, but they find themselves addicted to each other by the time the encounter ends. However, that is good for Kerry's brother, as Rafe is determined to fulfill his part of the deal and with a killer out to make sure the wrong man takes the fall for their misdeeds, that could prove lucky for Kerry as well. ................ What would be an interesting, albeit lightweight suspense novel with a sweet ending is ruined by entirely too much and too graphic sex. If you skip all the padding, it boils down to a rather short book with an easy to solve mystery.
