Publisher's Summary

After ending her passionless marriage, Cali Reynolds is eager to live out her forbidden fantasies. Her first step is attending new members' night at The Den, the most exclusive sex club in town. Perhaps here she can find a man who understands her desire to be dominated....

At first, Jake McCallister thinks Cali has come to his club for the wrong reasons. But when he discovers she is seeking fulfillment after years of denial, he's intrigued - and takes it upon himself to initiate her into the pleasures she's been missing.

Her first encounter with Jake is everything Cali has always craved, and more; she's not prepared for the feelings he inspires in her. And Jake is just as surprised by his overwhelming attraction to Cali. As their play intensifies, so does their bond. Now, Jake doesn't want anyone but Cali - but is he ready to officially claim her? And will she submit to being his forever?

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Very Sexy Love Story"

    This is a love story. Yes, it is a very erotic work of fiction and a lot of the story is of a very sexual nature, but more than anything else this is the story of two people finding their perfect partner; finding that which they thought they could never have. The sex in this story is very descriptive but in a sensual and sensitive way. This author isn't out to shock her readers, quite the opposite in fact. She shows that love and connections come in various different guises and that finding them depends on finding the right person to share them with.

    I really appreciated that the author allowed me to get to know her characters beyond the bed/play-room. While their relationship develops mostly during their "scenes" together, the reader gets real glimpses at who they are and what motivates them through their interactions with the other people around them. This makes both Cali and Jake into fully developed characters whose feelings and actions make sense and who are easy to like and understand.

    Please Audible can we have the next installment.

    Story
    "Brainwashing Women"

    Plot: Cassie (44) was unhappily married for 20+ years and sexually unfulfilled. Somehow this smart woman decides that she wants to experience meaningless sex in a D/S club. So Cassie visits the club, meets one of the owners Jake, immediately trusts this complete stranger and allows herself to be screwed.

    I liked Cassie in many ways - she was dedicated, intelligent and caring - but I thought she suffered from alarming low self esteem. She didn't have the guts to confront her husband and get what she needed from her marriage (or end it). Then Cassie magically had the courage to trust her physical and emotional welfare to a professional Dom, someone who is paid to inflict pain on others - not my idea of a trustworthy individual.

    Jake just gave me the creeps, with his attitude of instantly knowing "what Cassie really needs", which of course was sex with him. Just another horny man with a "lifestyle" that gives him permission to bully; hitting as foreplay, humiliation was a bonding experience. When exactly did bossy, self absorbed jerks become romantic heroes?

    While I believe in freedom of choice for consenting adults, I hate when self destructive behavior is romanticized, brainwashing women into thinking that physical abuse is okay. I wish this very talented author would write books about independent & confident women who demand to be treated with respect and kindness from the men in their lives.

    "Bondage fluff"

    I've had this book more than 8 months and I just wasn't compelled to listen to it... Wish I had trusted my instincts on this one.

    Some people will like this book...it lets you dabble and peek into the BDSM lifestyle without anything being too harsh. Everything is consensual, no one gets pushed to their safe word, nothing but a whole lot of play...but not very interesting play. I like my books steaming and this one was just above room temperature. One would think since it takes place primarily in a club that it would have to be hot, but not really. No toys were used, just your basic spanking and a flogging or two, but nothing like the detailed Sweet Series, or like other sex club books I've read where there was a whole lot of accessories to complete the scene.

    This book focused on Callie, a 44 year old woman who got out of a 22 year marriage because she was unfulfilled in many ways. She finally decides to try what she has been reading about in romance novels, so she joins the Den, an exclusive club....and she finds a Dom. Her age was dealt with well and actually the Callie character was well written, but everyone else had contrived drama, miscommunications, and down right ignoring information that I just heard another character tell them.

    Narrator was okay, her male voices weren't great, but she had emotion in her tone at least.

    Maybe but this book in the $4.95 sale, but don't waste your time if you want suspense, or even a plot!

    Story
    "Not Bad"
    Would you listen to Bonds of Trust again? Why?

    The story wasn't bad but it's not one to listen to again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bonds of Trust?

    The most memorable moment in the book was actually near the beginning when Cali and Jake were in the exhibition room. The way it was written was very erotic.

    Story
    ""Sometimes a HOT QUICKIE is all you need""
    What made the experience of listening to Bonds of Trust the most enjoyable?

    Emily Cauldwell narration for me brought this story to life. The way Ms.Cauldwell phase her words and and the longing that she protray to the characters brought the lustfulness out in the story.

    One book that I would recommded is Long Shots Books 1-3 by Christine d' Ado. Great story!!!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I like the whole story from beginning to end.I was amazed that such a short story was able to convay to myself the lisener so much passion. WAY TO GO LYNDA AIRCHER YOU WROTE A GREAT NOVEL!!!!!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Abouslity!!!!! I listen to my audible books when I exercise so this story not only got my blood pumping but I exercise longer.

    Story
    "Bonds of Trust Review"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It's not that I would change anything about the book itself, but I had a hard time relating and really caring about the main character. I ended up not really liking the person she was and ultimately found her kind of irritating.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Emily Cauldwell?

    Absolutely NOT!. I found Emily Cauldwell's narration very hard to listen to. I got very annoyed with the voices she played for both Cali and Jake. If it was narrated by someone different there is a chance I would've liked this story more.


    Any additional comments?

    Since I am in my early 20's and do not have any children it may have been hard for me to relate to Cali, since she is in her 40's, divorced, and has a daughter. (Which is most of her struggle throughout the entire book.) When I was reading the description for the book I didn't think that those parts of her life would play such a strong role. Knowing what I know now, I probably would not have bought this. However, if you can relate to those struggles that she has and you enjoy kinky romance novels than this may be the book for you!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bonds of Trust to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the printed version. But I certaintly enjoyed listening to it.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have liked to learn more about Jakes tortured past


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Cali and Jake's first interaction


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The best way to find out if you trust somebody is to trust them.

    Story
    "Horrible"
    What disappointed you about Bonds of Trust?

    This book is just horrible and the reader is so dry.


    What was most disappointing about Lynda Aicher’s story?

    There is no story here. Just a woman in her 40's wanting something that the writer seems to not be knowledgable enough to give.. I give this book 1 star and if I could give it a half star I would instead of 1. I wasted a credit.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    she had no emotions


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no redeeming qualities what so ever
