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?

Finally a story with an older lady !!!!!

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

Yes, It was so easy to set back and see the story in my mind. Every sound was so well done.

What did you like best about this story?

That the star was 44 years old. Not someone legal but who was just on the edge. Not a virgen but with history to add to the story.

Have you listened to any of Emily Cauldwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first but it won't be the last.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, but it kept me right on the edge.

Any additional comments?

If you don't want to get over heated don't pick it up. WoW

Wow.......what a nice surprise!!!!

First time with this author and narrator in which I was pleasantly surprised!! Reviews weren't that spectacular on Goodreads, so the narrator must have brought it the extra distance since I really enjoyed the book.

Obviously there is enough material for other books in the series, but don't see any planned?????

Even in the BD/SM seen people can fall in love

Would you listen to Bonds of Trust again? Why?

I very well might , because it was a very different view of the BD/SM genre. Most of the time it's always about control, and submission. This time it was about a dominant who started to develop feeling for his submissive, and she for him. (these things do happen)

Who was your favorite character and why?

Actually I really liked Jake, because he was helping Cali realize her desires. Also that Cali was an adult woman not a girl who after 25 years of marriage with an unfulfilled sex life wanted to finally get her rocks off and learn how to do it.

What does Emily Cauldwell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I never heard her before and she did an ok job, I think there could have been better narrators but she did the job quite well.

Any additional comments?

This was very different from most BD/SM stories. They explained more to people who are not familiar with the seen. The biggest thing is "Trust" and the trust is what most do not understand is that the submissive can end the seen at any time. So in essence the Sub has the power.

Good story bad narrator

Would you try another book from Lynda Aicher and/or Emily Cauldwell?

From the author yes,from the narrator no

What didn’t you like about Emily Cauldwell’s performance?

She was stiff,non-emotional,robotic. Her style was distracting from the story.

Do you think Bonds of Trust needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes there should be one for each of the club owners.

Good story runined by narrator.

How could the performance have been better?

The story itself was okay but seriously, listening to erotic sex scenes while the narrator talks in a monotone totally ruined it for me. Audible would do well to re-do the book with a different narrator.

Definitely enjoyed this one

Would you listen to Bonds of Trust again? Why?

Yes! I couldn’t turn off my player! The story was wonderful and I enjoyed it very much. Part two seemed to go by too quickly and I was sorry it was over…

The author takes the reader on a quest into the world of submission and domination but interwoven with a beautiful story of love and lust. The reader will learn the different ways in which this world works.

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.
