Bind My Before You Go by Harper Kincaid Review

(July 21, 2015,  Entangled Publishing)

A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
His heart is bound tighter than the bondage he craves...
Determined to put her past behind her, Cassidy Peyton moves to the Big Apple. But New York has a few dark secrets of its own, including Serve, an exclusive BDSM club. It's a place she isn't sure she's ready for, until she sees him watching her. Hot. Intent. Knowing. With eyes that leave her stomach tied in knots, because the loneliness he's trying to hide matches her own.
Security expert David Cavill has more secrets than any man should. Secrets that forever shut down any possibility of love, marriage, or family. Yet Cassidy draws him in, an intoxicating combination of strength, candor, and sensuality that David can't resist. But as their bond deepens, Cassidy must decide if she can love a man whose heart is bound tighter than the form of bondage he craves...

This book is essentially about two survivors; one who has managed to break free of their binds and one that is still trapped…but by their own making.
Cassidy has just moved to New York from Florida, to become a Social Worker, but also to escape the drudgery that she endured all of her life. Her roommate is the outgoing Allie, whom drags her to a BDSM club after a hellish 24 hour shift, just as an introduction…but what she found was a man she can open up to, but one who also told her up front that he is not boyfriend material.
David lives a life in cycles, from amazing to purgatory and back again. But he has one outlet and that is Serve, the BDSM club where he can practice the art of Shibari (Japanese rope bondage). After a failed engagement, David knows that he can never have a normal life, that his family’s issues will always stop him from having a meaningful relationship. Then he met Cassidy and he had to of the best weeks of his life. But as always, his family life comes back and destroys that and he sends Cassidy away. And you are left wondering if he will wake and realize what he is letting go.
I was super excited to read another Harper Kincaid book, and I am truly grateful that I did, as her wring just sucks you into this book and doesn’t let you go. The story was smooth and I just fell in love with the characters.
As someone who married into a family with mental illness (specifically the one that is mentioned), I have to say that the Harper hit the nail on the head with the situations that happen with the families who has a member with mental illness. The cycles and the outbursts are spot on.
This book is amazing! So I give it 10 out of 10! The book is just divine and you are left wanting more!

A woman with the heart of a revolutionary,
The mind of a pragmatist,
And the inappropriate humor of your tipsy BFF...

Born in California and raised in South Florida, I've moved around like a gypsy with a bounty on my head ever since. Along the way, I've worked as a community organizer, a professional matchmaker, an art teacher, a popular blogger, and a crisis counselor (to name a few). All the while, longing to have the guts and follow-through to do what I really wanted: to write and become a published author. That wish has finally come true and I am tickled pink with glitter over this good piece of fortune.

What else? Hmm...I love indie, lo-fi, complaint rock played on vinyl, wearing black because it's slimming, the theater, well-informed optimism, happy endings (both kinds),and making those close to me laugh 'til they snort. I'm a self-admitted change junkie, loving new experiences and places, but have now happily settled in the cutest lil' town, Vienna, Virginia.
