Bound and Determined: Sexy Capers Series, Book 1

With her brother wrongfully accused of embezzling millions, Kerry Sullivan can't face one more humiliating hang-up from the man she's begging for help. Rafael Dawson may be one of the top electronic security experts in the country - and the only man who can prove her brother's innocence - but his phone manners are appalling. Too bad kidnapping the man isn't an option. Or is it? There's nothing Kerry wouldn't do for her brother, and there are lots of things she longs to do to Rafe Dawson when he's lying tied-up and naked in her secret hideaway.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Cute Sexy Story"

    Desperate woman kidnaps hot man and ties him to a bed. What's not to like about that??? It starts out good and keeps it going all the way to the end. I enjoyed the story and I loved the sexy parts.I also enjoyed that the characters discovered their sexuality in each other. That was a nice change from other books. It was worth my credit.

    "Nice little gem!"

    Ahhh Shayla, you did it again! What a wonderful book, there was a who done it, some ultra steamy scenes and witty writing!!!

    Kary's life has gone to crap...she is a waitress, working through college at age 23, and her only family was arrested for embezzlement. She knows her brother is innocent, but she doesn't know anything about banks and firewalls what can she do, she needs a plan. The plan she comes up with is to kidnap the computer wiz hired by the bank to tighten up security....shame he is hot as heck!!! She doesn't know what to do now that she has him....but the tables turn rather quickly and he knows exactly what he wants to do to her!

    This book had me at minute one and never let go! Wish the narrator had a better male voice, but other than that it was totally scrumptious!

    "Pure Fantasy - Sexy and A Lot of Fun"
    Where does Bound and Determined rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed it and I'll listen again. It's an easy, fun listen. If you are looking for a deep, meaningful book you probably want to pass. However, if you are looking for a sexy escape and far out scenario (some are kind of eyeball rolling, but fun) don't bother you-give it a go!


    What other book might you compare Bound and Determined to and why?

    This is Chic Lit with adult content and a bit of action. I'd compare it to anything else by Shayla Black/Lexi Blake.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Aletha George?

    Yes, unfortunately my favorite authors seem to pick her for their books. She's adequate but there are more talented narrators out there.


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

    "WORST WRITING EVER!!"
    Would you try another book from Shayla Black and/or Aletha George?

    Read a few of Blacks books and most were not bad - this one was AWFUL! Terribly written. Did she really write this? Soooooooo bad! Where were the editors for this book?


    What could Shayla Black have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    LEAVE OUT CLICHES/METAPHORS/SIMILES - 'HOTTER THAN A PANCAKE ON THE GRIDDLE' (okay I made that one up because I didn't want to waste time re-listening to catch all the inane ones in the book) - One in just about every paragraph, each one more stupid than the last - NO LIE!


    How could the performance have been better?

    BETTER WRITING


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    EYE ROLLS. Spoiler alert: The killer's real name is Ruthie Joe from the trailer park turned smart sexy killer and computer genius?! REALLY?!


    Any additional comments?

    Mostly I feel like a fool finishing the book. I've never written a review before but this one was so awful and I just had to.

    Any additional comments?

    I didn't know that Shayla Black also writes under the name of Shelley Bradley...why do some authors do that??? I did not feel like I was listening to Shayla Black's writing through the entire book... perhaps she knew this was not her best work. I read on another reviewers comments regarding the metaphors .... boy was she correct!! They were to a distraction! Just did not feel this story to be believable in any way what so ever!! Sorry Shayla or Shelley....hope the next book is better.
