Bonds of Trust - Lynda Aicher 5000 freaking stars! YAY!!!!! This book was so good and it gave me all the warm and fuzzies inside!

I came across this book somewhat randomly via my recommendations the other day. I had never heard of the author but I knew of the publisher because I follow them on twitter. So I figured what the heck and hit the purchase button on my Nook. Note: this is part of a series, but there is no cliffhanger. I believe each book follows a different couple. These are my fave kind of series.

I am so flipping thrilled that I bought this book. This book has everything. It's sweet yet hot, sexy and erotic, with a heaping helping of BDSM (nothing extreme) with a dash of angst and a OHMIGOD moment that had me nearly in tears. TEARS! But I will get to that in a moment.

Let's talk about Cali. I loved her. She was strong but so scared of her submissive side. For much of the book she wanted to hide that part of herself but Jake, god Jake, he was so patient and amazing and loving and just...*sighs* He's just dreamy. But the scene...the scene that very well nearly stopped my freaking heart from beating?! Lynda Aicher I could barely stand it! I was crushed and I had to put the book down so I could get myself together. I made dinner but I kept staring at my Nook like any minute it was going to jump off the counter and smack me in the face. I had to know. I wanted to KNOW. And it was taunting me. It was so close! But people had to eat. And I had to get my shit together. Which I did. Finally.

Once I ate and was able to breathe again I finished the last 60 odd pages. Thank you Ms. Aicher for making it all better. It was a close one though. You had me going there for a minute and I really thought things were not going to end well. Very tricksy of you. ;)

Bottom line: I love this book. I love this author. And I am Kermit flailing all over the place since the second book will be out soon. If I could some awesome gif review with lots of pictures and such I would. Hell I wish I was smart enough to make a book trailer for it with a musical background. (I'm thinking -and this may be corny but- Boyz II Men's I'll Make Love to You is totally in my head when I finished this). People, listen to me. This book is THAT good! There are not many writers of BDSM romances that are really really good at combining the erotic elements with a story. Cherise Sinclair can do it. So can Kallypso Masters. I can add a third to this short list now.
