Bonds of Hope (Wicked Play #4)

 Bonds of Hope (Wicked Play, #4) 
3 of 5 stars false1/2
Quinn Andrews has a lot to learn about the world of BDSM. Once America's sweetheart, she has an opportunity to revive her career by playing a sexual submissive in a highly anticipated new series. Quinn is ready to throw herself into the role, and her hometown's premier sex club, The Den, is the ideal place for a crash course.
At first Marcus Reese is reluctant to take on Quinn's erotic education, despite his intense attraction to the stunning starlet. While she fulfills his every command perfectly, she's also a consummate actress—and Marcus is determined to uncover the real woman hidden behind the mask.
Quinn's been taking direction all her life, so submitting to a Dom comes easily. But it's not just the most amazing sex she's ever had—Marcus challenges her to define her own needs and make her own decisions. And when her training is over, Quinn will have to choose between continuing to play a part in her own life, or living by her own rules.


****Carina Press through NetGalley provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review****
Bonds of Hope was a fun and sexy addition to the Wicked Play series. Just being introduced recently to the series, I've gotten to know the characters and enjoyed them. This is a great series for the lighter BDSM reader, the "glitter kink" fans if you will. For me I would have liked to see that part of things go a little more in depth, but it was still a lighter romance with some nice flogging thrown in. Marcus was delicious and kept things going for me where Quinn lacked. Quinn wasn't completely ignorable as a character but she was a little 2D, flat. Her constant stereotypes drove me up a wall, even after meeting Marcus and people in the lifestyle she was adamant about her impressions and opinions and I couldn't help but want to smack her. The hypocritical issues Quinn had with Marcus's job were a little extreme and they never really felt resolved which stuck with me, these two just didn't communicate and I think that gave the reader a bit of an issue. Eventually things turned around with a satisfying ending. All in all something worth picking up for the reader looking for HEA romance with a kinky twist.
