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.

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: 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.
