Description

Eight years ago, a naive Katie Crane ran from Ry and Jed, warned their brand of love would ruin her life. Now she's all grown up and returning home with a better understanding of the BDSM lifestyle. After the betrayal she's faced at her father's hands, she worries she won't be strong enough to submit to the men she gave her heart and virginity to at eighteen.

Jed Malloy and Ry McKade are surprised and thrilled by Katie's return to Felton's Creek. They'd been heartbroken after her departure and had turned to each other, embracing the BDSM lifestyle without her. Katie's homecoming sparks hope and worry. Ry isn’t sure he can keep his dominant side under control, and Jed fears Katie will see him as less of a man by being a switch and Ry’s submissive.

Having Katie back could mean the beginning of everything they've ever wanted or the end to the only family they've ever known.

Eight years ago, a naive Katie Crane ran from Ry and Jed, warned their brand of love would ruin her life. Now she's all grown up and returning home with a better understanding of the BDSM lifestyle...

Bound & Teased has everything you want in a hot read: great characters with complexity, depth and back story; an interesting story with lots of twists and some suspense and lots of intense scenes. With all these great individual elements there were a couple minor glitches. Katie's reaction to some of her family and events seems off or not quite authentic. It is minor and only comes up in a couple of places. I think a little more work on when, why and how of her past family would clear it up. I still highly recommend this book. I think you will enjoy it if you like menage, bondage scenes and a book with some story with the sex.

This book is hot and sexy and everything a girl could want in a story. Lucky Katie has Ry and Jed all for herself and what woman wouldn't want two incredibly wonderful men. They are protective and loving, not only toward her, but to each other. Katie is such a strong woman, has been through a bit of an ordeal, and is learning to lean on her man. Loved her Gran---such an amazing lady. Story wouldn't have been the same without her! Definitely would recommend this one.

I admin the first thing that drew me was the cover - a girl and two hot guys - what can I say? What I loved was the hot sex between these three and can I say I am not one to overly enjoy M/M but the way the writer explored this along with then Katie joining in with the guys - OMG - that was really hot and heavy writing. Also loved Katie's Gran she was a heart warming character who provided some light moments along the way and helped tie in the story of why Katie left town. Where I felt let down with this was how underwhelmed I was with the end of this story, I was hoping it would build to some big drama but it all kind of fizzled out for me especially at the fair - it was all tied up too quickly and nicely. It's kind of like your first sexual experience - wham bam thank you - it's all over folks. One other thing that was really expressed well was the connection between Ry and Jed but then with Katie it felt disjointed, perhaps because she did not live with them and she was merely a visitor to their house? I really would have loved a say 2 years down the track chapter of how it turned out for them as I was just feeling they were heading towards their happy ever after. Either way this was a quick and enjoyable read.

Katie is returning home. She left when she was 18 because of an incident with Ry & Jed, a couple guys that she's never been able to get over. Due to talk in town about them, the influence of her father, & the fact that she was scared of having a relationship with either of the guys, she left town. Over the years she hadn't been able to get over Ry & Jed so she used her time in New York to learn about the Sub/Dom culture to see if it's something she could partake in. When she returns home, it's not long before Ry & Jed find out & then the pursuit begins. Ry & Jed are a couple all on their own however they both have strong feelings for Katie and want to bring her into the fold. Katie, she has strong feelings for both of the guys so the question is has all her prep work made her strong enough to be what they want?

Bound & Teased starts off where Katie left her home town eight years ago with her father hoping to gain her fathers love. After a series of events she decides to come home to her home town and gran. Eight years ago she had sex with two men at the same time Ry and Jed. She hoped that when she came home she would be able to see the two men. Ry and Jed were together as a couple but they loved and missed Katie and was so happy when she came home. They were worried about what she would think about them being together. Ry and Jed have a loving Dom and sub relationship, when Katie comes back both Ry and Jed are the Dom's over Katie. Bound & Teased does have a good story just beware there's lot of bdsm in this story. I really enjoyed the authors style of writing and boy was it HOT!!!!

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book. Jed and Ry are great characters. Sweet and loving. It's interesting how they interacted with each other as they were partners and lovers. I didn't quite understand how things progressed so rapidly between them and Katie. She ran from them at 18 with no explanation and they were willing to pick up where they left off without really delving into why she left. But it worked. The sex scenes were hot! If you are not into F/M/M stories I would read this, but I really liked it. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

I don't always enjoy menage romances, simply because I'm not sure I'd every be able to do one. However, this one was written extremely well and I enjoyed the play between the characters. They all had fears and weaknesses that were relatable but that were also well resolved by the end of the story. The sex scenes were steamy and there was a perfect happy ending with the "bad guys" getting their just desserts.

WOW!!!!!! Katie , Ry, Jed this story is just like i said WOW there was steam coming off my kindle while i read this story . Its hard to really describe without giving a spoiler away. I can say true love never dies if your meant to be together,

This was a very good Erotic book. I really liked the fact that Ry and Jed took up a relationship together while Katie was gone. It just strengthened their bond and made them better Doms for Katie. Otherwise how do you have two Doms in a relationship?

Very interesting book. I enjoyed watching the relationship between the three main characters develop.

I have to admit that the sex scenes were quite steamy. This threesome had fell in love years ago, but things tore them apart, only to come together years later and realize they were still in love with one another. The relationship dynamic between this couple was interesting and kept me involved in the story. This was a good read. I received an ARC of this book from the publisher for an honest review.

Bound & Teased is about BDSM and ménage with explicit scenes involving M/F/M, M/M and F/M and the use of bondage, toys and dungeons. The author explores this lifestyle as it centers within the contemporary romance of her characters. Marie Tuhart tastefully depicts the scenes between the characters and how BDSM is ultimately hoped for between the participants. She also shows the roles the participants fill…Dominant, Submissive and Switch. Katie Crane has been in love with Ry (Ryland) McKade and Jed Malloy since she was 18 but she left them when she became confused about their lifestyle of BDSM. Not understanding her feelings, she fled to New York with her Father. Now years later, she has explored and learned and has decided to go home to Ry and Jed leaving her troubles behind. Ry and Jed have only loved Katie and each other so when she arrives home they worry if she can accept thire Dominate and Submissive loving and if she can accept that they are partners as well and want her to be included. Jed worries that she will not be able to understand his role as switch and if it will be too much for her to handle. Ry, Jed and Katie have to learn to trust their feelings and each other as they form a bond that many in the BDSM world hope to achieve. But will it be enough when trouble comes to their door? Will Katie leave again which is what Ry fears? Marie Tuhart cast her characters in their roles beautifully. Each character fits in personality and responded as their role of Dominant, Submissive and Switch would be expected to act. She did touch on the darker aspect of those who abuse in the Dominant role with little care to the sub and whether they were causing pain. Tuhart shows in her character of Ry that as a dominant the role isn’t just about issuing orders or control, but to take responsibility of safety, but also emotional, mental and physical well-being. I enjoyed reading how Tuhart brought together these roles and spun the romance of ménage. One of the better BDSM books I have read.

After years away from home, Katie returns to her almost-lovers, Ry and Jed. Unlike most menage stories, this one features a true MMF relationship (Ry is a Dom, Jed a Switch, and Katie is the little submissive). Ry and Jed are lovers, but enjoy Katie, as well. While the story is pretty sexy if you're looking for a spicy read, I found it difficult to connect with the characters from a literary standpoint. We're thrown right into the story when Katie returns home and she doesn't really say much about missing the guys, why she left, or what she did while she was gone. As soon as they come see her at Grandma's house, they're kissing her and coming onto her. I actually thought the scene itself was very sexy, but unsatisfying from a storytelling point of view. Right away, I wanted to know why she left, why she came back, and how she was going to connect with the guys. They acted like no time at all had passed, which I had a hard time believing as a reader.

First off as they hadn’t seen Katie for eight years I expected some discussion of why she left so suddenly? Why did they assume she’d come back to them. I thought they’d talk about those missing years, but no, just wham, straight back into some sex and BDSM. I just felt that the sex was the story here. There was plenty of sex, but for me it didn’t match the story, didn’t feel right and it just overshadowed the story. If you want a book full of hot, steamy sex this is it, but if like me you want more story – well, the story simply gets lost here. It's not strong enough to stand against endless pages of sex.

This M/ M/F menage, BDSM themed book is short but definitely not sweet. It is definitely erotica, and a bit overbalanced towards the sex scenes as opposed to the story. I never really made a connection to the characters, perhaps in a different format, with a little more back story, I might have found them more compelling. As to the erotic scenes, they are, as mentioned, plentiful and graphic. If you are looking for a steamy diversion, this might just be the book for you. *I received my copy through NetGalley.com in exchange for an honest review.

I was a little apprehensive about actually reading this - but it was a good, short, read with a HEA. I think the thing I was most impressed with though, was that the play here was not at all like in Fifty Shades-it was always 'safe, sane, and consensual.' That marked difference from many other Fifty Shades wannabe's kept me reading.

Katie Crane is back in her home town after running away 8 years ago from her first true loves Ry and Jed. She may not have been ready for what they had planed for her 8 years ago but she is definitely ready now. Ry and Jed have had a hard time getting over the fact that Katie ran away all those years ago and have been hoping she would come home. Now that she is back she is back in town they are willing to do any and everything to get her back into their arms. Unfortunately for them someone wants her as far away from them as possible. Can Ry and Jed keep Katie safe or will they lose her all over again forever? Read and find out! I received this book as an ARC from Net Galley for my honest review. This book was short..hot..and very naughty! This book was a quick read that gave a little bit of suspense, a lot of romance and tons of passion. I loved the interaction between the characters and also loved that Katie did not get lost in the mix of things. She stayed a valid part of this story and was not afraid to stand up for what she wanted even if it meant making her family or even her lovers angry. Overall a pretty good book. It was slightly predictable but still worth the read. This is my first book by Marie Tuhart but I will definitely be on the look out for more!

Received an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review. Hmmmm...I'm very torn about this one. The love scenes were hot - page scorching hot - but I didn't quite get the heart that I wanted. I wish that there had even been like one flashback to see how Katie and Ry and Jed had been before she left for New York. She got back and they took up again immediately, so it was hard for me to find an emotional thread to hold on to. Overall, not bad and I will keep an eye out for Tuhart.

Bound and Teased by Marie Tuhart Source: Netgalley My Rating: 3/5 stars My Review: It’s really hard for me to resist a cover and title like Bound and Teased has and so, I did not resist  This was a one-sitting read for me and though it has a very, very thin plot I still enjoyed the read but mostly, I enjoyed the hot sex. Here’s the breakdown . . . After nearly a decade away from home, Katie Crane has decided it’s time to return to the only two men she has ever truly loved. Jed Malloy and Ry McCade have made a life for themselves in their small hometown. One is the sheriff and one is horse trainer and both are desperately in love with one another and the girl who ran from them. Though Jed and Ry have made a nice life for themselves, both have always hoped Katie would come back to them. One day, she does . . . . When Katie left Jed and Ry, she was barely 18 years old and under the mistaken impression that they would somehow ruin her life is she stayed with them and indulged in any sort of relationship. The whole town would know and she would be participating in an unnatural relationship. Or so her father told her. And so, Katie took off to New York with her father, made a career for herself, found an asshole boyfriend, and discovered a whole lot of truly awful stuff related to her dad and boyfriend. Nothing like, shock, revulsion, anger, and outrage to make a girl pack her bags and leave town. Within days of arriving back in town, Katie is reunited with Jed and Ry and everyone makes their intentions crystal clear. Jed and Ry want Katie, Katie wants Jed and Ry but there must be ground rules. Katie isn’t interested in being anyone’s slave but she is interested in submitting sexually. Jed and Ry aren’t interested in a slave either but they are very interested in Katie’s submission to them both. Additionally, they are interested in Katie’s response to their continued existence as a couple. If Katie can’t accept Jed and Ry as a couple, then there really is no future for the three of them. For weeks, the three experiment with one another in a variety of ways with most of the encounters going exquisitely well. A few times, things go a bit wonky which leads Katie to having to reveal things about her past she thought were long buried. As she quickly discovers, the boys want nothing but the best for her and are willing to go to any length to protect her. Turns out, the boys have a lot to protect Katie from especially when her sleazy ex and father come to drag her back to New York. The Bottom Line: I can’t really knock Bound and Teased too much for being all about the sex because every now and again, I am totally down for a book that is all about the gratuitous sex. As I mentioned previously, the plot is pretty thin and it feels like Katie’s past and present issues are the things that happen randomly between sex scenes. As to those sex scenes . . . . WOWSA!! This is where the story gets good with loads of naughty bits that varied and dirty but always respectful and safe. Jed and Ry and creative guys and they like to play with one another just as much as they like playing with Katie. In all, I found the naughty bits to be the best part of the read and if all you are looking for is some steamy sex with some other random bits thrown in to break up the sex, then Bound and Teased just might be the read for you 

This book was ok, but in my personal opinion I don't feel think the overall storyline was great. The threesome sexual partners was an original idea but I felt the story lacked in depth. This book was erotic, and goes a lot into bdsm but lacks in character background.. The story focuses primarily on Katie which I found to be dull as opposed to Jed and Ty. Overall I wouldn't recommend this book nor would I read it again.

Not sure how I felt about this book. I wanted a hot and sexy ménage with a good story. I just wasn't feeling it. They just didn't seem to have the chemistry to pull me in and the story was lack luster. She had issues, but they were explained away so quickly or resolved in a blink of an eye and the thing with the town finding out was kinda dumb. It was no one's business what they do. This was not my cup of tea. I love reading kink, but when I feel it is all superficial and didn't seem like it had emotions it is not for me. When I then found out that the story is $4.99, I really had a bad taste for the book. It is not worth that much! Revived a copy from NetGalley for a honest review.

Katie ran away from Jed and Ry not sure she could handle the lifestyle they wanted to share with her. Now she has come home, years later ready give herself to these men, but can she? I like the premise of the story but it seemed to lack the emotion. I wanted to feel a deeper connection with the characters. Yes the sex is hot but communication is key to a good BDSM relationship and these three didn’t seem to have it.

This book was better than I thought it would be. I enjoyed the plot and the characters. Sexy, hot and amazing!

This MFM erotic romance was quite a hot and delicious read. I mean, Katie is one lucky girl. I like how this is a second chance romance of sorts in this polyam realtionship, and with BDSM in their lifestyle is just another cherry on top.
