Surrender to your fantasies. Every submissive willingly does: bound and helpless, expecting the ecstasy of her master’s lash. Never mind the leather—clothed or naked, she is stripped down to only the most basic physical and emotional need, completely exposed. But it’s this swirl of sensations and feelings that combine in a perfect storm of kink and makes the seemingly impossible not only occur, but happen in a way that creates a sexy good time for everyone involved. The sensual stories that Alison Tyler has assembled in this collection delve into the dynamics of relationships filled with such unrestrained passion, revealing a world of beautiful contradictions that will thrill and inspire you. Some of these tales show how the everyday can be instantly transformed into pulse-quickening moments laced with eroticism.

Nobody likes bondage more than Alison Tyler who is endlessly fascinated with the sensation of giving up, giving in, of putting one’s pleasure (and pain) into the hands of another. To her, bondage means “I trust you to keep me safe,” and yet BDSM can also mean, “I trust you to hurt me.” Because the most important part of bondage, of dominance, of all the slippery ways one can play with those concepts is trust.In the BDSM realm, trust involves crops, whips, blindfolds, handcuffs, paddles, belts, gags, and toys.

How deliciously, devilishly twisted is that?

 

Review:  You may need a fan, this book is hot! The Big Book of Bondage is an amazing collection of erotic short stories centered on Bondage. More than ropes, controlling or be controlled, spankings, pleasure and pain, Bondage is about this trust. Trust to take the practitioner to higher levels of ecstasy. I warn you, the heat level of this book is the highest and hottest!! Many authors weaving their magic with words, rich with detail that let me at times with my jaw dropped and others wanting more! You may need breaks while reading! LOL

I enjoyed reading all the hot tales, but I have to say my favorite was the opening story COMMUTER TRAIN by Teresa Noelle Roberts. It show just what text messaging and items you can hide (or not) in your purse. The things one will do for another even when the requester is not there shows you how far a person will go for her dom.

Hang on for the golf lesson of your life in GOLF SPELLED BACKWARDS by Andrea Dale. This golf pro will not only show you how to improve your stroke on the course but in bed as well. I just love the whit written into this tale.

THE BONDAGE PIG by Kristina Lloyd is an extremely hot tale involving some very strange and hot props, with a bit of some kind of magic written in. Devin Phillips gives us an insight of what is like for a sub to be on display in WHEN MY BOYFRIEND HAS A PARTY. The things one willing does when in love.

I think this collection of short stories, does great justice in giving the reader an in-depth look at bondage for many sides.

Whatever your hidden (or not so) kink is, I believe The Big Book of Bondage will have something that will be a treat for you. The Big Book of Bondage gave me a few new points of view on bondage. It is more than just props, receiving or causing pain or being tied up. It is knowing that complete trust can be put onto another to keep the other safe. The giving over of ones self. A state of mind, to some a way of life. Bondage is pleasure and pain. If you have any interests in bondage, pick up this book! It is one that will have a permanent home on my shelf.
