Overview

Shattered Trust by Lynda Bailey

Learning to love is the easy part...

As a young woman, Kate Landry trusted the wrong man, and she paid dearly for her naiveté. Alone, pregnant and destitute, she survived by the sheer force of her will. Now forty-two, Kate has made a good living for herself and her daughter as the owner of the Bluebird Saloon. But she's forgotten how to live. That is until he comes into her bar...

Liam St. James loved a girl once. And only once. After an accident paralyzed her, she didn't trust he would continue to love her. Brokenhearted, Liam left and soon discovered a world where women did trust him--to be their sexual Dominant. He plays out the scenes masterfully, but the unexpected request from the stoic bar owner will pose his greatest challenge yet...

Kate and Liam embark on a journey to uncover repressed urges and, in the process, they discover new desires. They also fall in love with one another. But when you've been shattered as badly as they have by mistrust, deceit and abuse, loving is easy. Trusting is harder, if not impossible, especially when the heart is involved...

Shattered Trust is a BDSM romance. It contains explicit language and graphic love scenes, including bondage, domination, spanking, whipping and multiple partners. It is intended for mature readers only.

This read gives you a view of a healthy BDSM relationship. You find that sometimes something that is broken can be fixed with a few kind words and actions. Even when Liam knew that Kate needed to see a professional but couldn't afford it, he took on the job of helping her overcome her fear. Things from her past caused Kate to shut herself off some everyone, even the one person that meant the most to her, her daughter. Liam so see that it not just his need to help people that has attracted him to Kate but a true desire to have her that has him wanting to help her.  I was very impress with the very touchy topics this book hits on and does so very well. This story has a very good plot and told well. You are given a look in to things most want to sweep under the rug and forget but it's done in a very well thought out way. Very good read! It was a little slow for what I would normally pick for myself to read, still enjoyed the book to its fullest.

What I liked about this novel.... "Shattered Trust" was really one good story of a person learning to love again, trust again and even some forgiving as it was for Liam St James and Kate Landry. I loved how this author brought it all out so well for the reader. But first let me say this is a mature read that is erotic read with BDSM in it so if this isn't your kind of read...you may not want to pursue this read. Now, for you that don't mind this kind of read...I thought the author brought it out well to the reader a storyline about Kate who had a kind of life that was not good and all of this verbal and mental abuse she had suffered through the hands of her father and another man ...was still with her even after some twenty years later. Now, living win a small town of Trustworthy Texas and owner of a successful Bluebird Saloon with her daughter life still wasn't great for her. Why was that? What was missing from her life? Then Liam St James comes into her life where he too had some baggage of his own along with his discovering his own very 'Dominate' side of himself where he learns he is able to bring pleasure to other women. What will happen when he lands in this small town and get a job at the Bluebird Saloon? What will happen with Kate and Liam start on this journey of self discovery? Will they be able to let go of their past and learn to truly love again? I loved to when Liam asked Kate...'Do you trust me?' Now, to understand what all this is about you will have to pick up "Shattered Trust" to find out how well this author brings it to the reader. I loved how Liam knew how to get this job done being a good dominate with such gentleness even if it meant getting some help from others. This is a hot sexy erotic story of two broken people who will find a way to heal in very 'unconventional' ways. In the end will these two be able to trust each other in the BDSM relationship in overcoming their past and even find future with each other? This author really works it with all of her descriptions of the details of what went on in this read. If you like a amazing read with some interesting details with hot sizzling hot sexy scenes where the chemistry is hot then this is a novel for you...a heroine is forty-two and the hero is at his early thirties! Would I recommend? Yes, if this is your type of read.....YES!
