Publisher's Summary

Every year the MM group on Goodreads does a free read event. Bonded was my submission for 2014's Love's Landscape Event. At the beginning of the event, a story letter is submitted from a reader, asking for a very specific story. This is the letter from Tonnya.

Dear Author,

My soul ached for command and love, and I was lost. Until I met them. We'd seen each other at different times, but it wasn't until the night I almost killed myself trying to lift more weight than I should that our worlds finally collided. What started out as lifting partners and movie marathons turned into weekend jaunts across the city and every free moment spent together, a tension building up between us that left me holding my breath. I'll never forget the night he took control and shattered our worlds, morphing our growing friendship into something more. I used to tell myself I would walk this Earth lost and broken forever, but I know now my soul was waiting for Sir and Pup to save me.

Sincerely,

Tonnya

MM – MMM Romance

Ahhh Chris breaks up with his long-time boyfriend Philip, made me sad poor Chris. He is kind of lost for a while not sure what to do or why they broke up. But if he looks deep down he sees he wasn’t really happy in that relationship.

Chris goes to the gym a lot to feel something other than sadness and he meets Greg and Liam.

I enjoyed Liam and Greg’s dynamic. And it was Liam who gets the ball rolling so to speak.

Liam’s character intrigued me and I liked the way Chris and Liam were different from Greg and Liam but how they all work. It kinda sorta perfect!

I am not a huge fan of the narration it was good just wasn’t what I was expecting from the cover. I kind of felt like James Talbot has an older voice and I thought of these men as younger.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Cool story

This was a cool story involving three guys in a bdsm relationship. The three men were well drawn and the plot interesting. I would’ve like to see more with these guys.

Not bad

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author. No review was requested or required.

This was a pretty good short listen. I liked the narrator's voice but it sounded a bit older than I pictured the characters. The story was pretty hot if you like the dynamic of a dom controlling two subs.

Strange Connections

This story is short and while it has some drama is pretty light. We get a chance to meet Chris, then Greg, and finally Liam. We get to see how their relationship developed into the special triad it becomes. We also get an idea of Liam's troubled past.

James Talbot is a joy to listen to.

This is a short but a great story. I thought the characters were well developed , they had challenges to face. Don't give up on what you want, and you will get it.

Lovely storyline

This is a short story that shows you can get what you need and don’t have to settle with anything less than you want. It has a lovely tone to it and the narration is excellent.

as good as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, I’m over the half, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B
