SUMMARY: (taken from the author's site)
Josie Harper had boyfriends, lovers, and even friends with benefits. None of them could satisfy her. Something had always been missing—something she was now desperate to find.
Gavin Scott longed for the perfect submissive. A woman worthy of the gift he could give to her as a Dom. Most failed to meet his expectations and he’d all but given up hope.
A high class match-maker in Las Vegas brings Josie and Gavin together. Tonight, Gavin will introduce Josie to the world of BDSM. As he skillfully guides her through the experience, Josie isn’t the only one captivated. Gavin is in awe of her control, someone this new to the lifestyle shouldn’t possess this great of a talent.
During their journey, Josie will find the missing piece of her soul and Gavin will meet the woman who was born to submit to him.
*Warning: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable.

FAVORITE LINE:
Honor touched his soul to be granted the right to assist her. Locking the door behind him, he dropped the bag slung over his shoulder and approached her. As he drew closer, her breathing deepened and the blush on her cheeks grew. ~ Gavin

TEASER:
Madame Eve had picked her perfect match indeed, everything her dreams were made of and more. Tanned and shirtless, with hard lines of muscles, dressed in a pair of dark jeans, he looked delicious. His outfit not at all what she’d expected, leather pants would have been more appropriate. Not saying his attire displeased her—he looked spectacular. ~ Josie 

PLOT:
Forever Bound - a novella layered with emotional depth that delivers! It's not easy to write a short and spicy story, but I consider this a perfect novella to wet your feet in light BDSM if you've never read this sub-genre in romance. The author brings together the perfect blend of fantasy and eroticism that weaves a sizzling tale of discovery and acceptance that ends in such a way that will leave you with a warm smile of satisfaction. 

SETTING:
A room specifically detailed and set up for the perfect night of pleasure.

WRITING:
With each new story Ms. Kennedy's style becomes smoother and more fluid. Her third person and ability to move between point of views leaves me feeling that I've read a well rounded and entertaining book. I consider Forever Bound, although short, among her best works and I can't wait for another 1Night Stand by Ms. Kennedy to come out! 

CHARACTERS:
Sweet and submissive Josie has finally had enough of the empty feeling inside and she has taken a stand in Forever Bound to find what will fill the void. For this alone I admire the heroine and took away the meaning of standing up for what will make you happy. The hero, Gavin, was the perfect Dom and gentleman for Josie. He knew when to push her boundaries and when to allow her to seek out her true feelings. I absolutely loved both characters and almost cried with how the ending wrapped up. 

LAST THOUGHTS:
Forever Bound is a must read if you like light BDSM. It will most definitely help you get through your lunch break and quiet possibly give you very interesting dreams as if read before bedtime!  

WHO IS AUTHOR STACEY KENNEDY:
I love the paranormal romance/urban fantasy genre and love a series more!! Nothing can hook me in more than an adventure and one that keeps on going. I love a page turner, one where I’m up at a ridiculous time and my eyes burn because I can’t stop reading. Witty characters, dominant men, danger, action, romance and hot sex―oh my!
My novels are lighthearted fantasy, heart squeezing, thigh-clenching romance, and even give a good chuckle every now and again.  I’m not a planner.  I don’t write with a set idea because no matter what I plan, the characters’ voices always come through and demand I listen to them. So, I gave up trying to fight it!
