Daniel's expectations are turned upside down when he meets Chris. She's more than a well-trained submissive. She's a woman with a body he wants to memorize. He's willing to spend as much time as it takes to learn her, because she might be his match and his muse. He'll make her come so hard he's imprinted on every inch, and then he'll offer her the most precious thing he can. Himself.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
Bound with Pearls is the first book in a series by Sidney Bristol. I chose this book because the summery sparked my interest. I have read one of Sidney Bristol’s other books and loved it.
Christine is a unattached sub that is no longer in the scene because she does not want to compete with her sister. Her sister Lucy who tries to one up anything that Christine does.
Daniel won a night with a sub in a poker game. The original sub was to be Lucy but she traded her sister in her place. Daniel is hot and sexy Dom. He is attracted to Christine at first sight.
I loved how brave Christine is. I do not think I could do what she does. I could never agree to submit to a man I have never met before. That takes guts that not many have.
The chemistry between Christine and Daniel is off the charts. The sex scenes are very hot and spicy. Christine and Daniel are very compatible in and out of the bedroom. They were very realistic characters. There was enough back-story to make them believable.
In the end I would have loved it if Christine stood up to her sister more. I wish she got what she deserved. Overall, this was a great story. I would love it if the author revisits Christine and Daniel in the future. I would love if the author also tells the story of Lucy. There is so many stories that are just waiting to be told. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

Bound by Pearls in book 1 in the Atlanta BDSM Series by Sidney Bristol. We are introduced to several of the characters that are in the BDSM scene in Atlanta including Chris who is always playing mom to her younger sister Lucy and cleaning up her messes, we also meet Daniel who is involved in Lucy's latest mess. Lucy having been lost for a night by her Dom in a poker game calls her sister Chris and talks her into taking her place. Daniel tried to lose the poker game because he really didn't want Lucy for a night he is pleasantly surprised when Chris is her replacement.
This one night won in a poker game is the start to a hot and extremely sexy love affair between Chris and Daniel. Both have past relationship issues as well as the family boundaries issues that Chris has with her sister. While they struggle to define what they want from each other and test each other there is no doubt about the fiery chemistry between them. Daniel is a creative Dom and we are treated to several different but extremely arousing "scenes" played out between them. (I will never buy ginger for Chinese food again without thinking of this book).
With this being the first in the series we have some development of secondary characters, not nearly as much as I would have liked to see however we are introduced to some of Daniels friends and I have to assume they will be getting starring roles in future books. At times things we thrown at you as if you had a back story to place them in context however the explanations came later and that was just a bit bothersome.
Overall this is a very hot read with the promise of more to come in the series and a HEA for Daniel and Chris.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Bound with Pearls was a sexy and engaging read for me. I really like the way Sidney Bristol balances the sexual scenes with the rest of the story. I found myself really liking Chris and Daniel. From beginning to end, you can see their relationship progress and deepen. It felt natural, not forced like in some other stories. The family drama also adds conflict to the story. Chris is such a sweet person, I couldn't believe her sister was so horrible to her. She reminds me of those selfish, vapid people in your life who just want all the attention, all the time.
I recommend Bound with Pearls to erotica and romance fans alike, as long as you're okay with consensual kinky sex.
