Blurb: As far as Bianca Conti was concerned, she’d lost a significant design project for her company because of Devon Slane. Specifically, because of an unfortunate incident prior to their meeting that wasn’t even her fault. Bianca would like nothing more than to bring that arrogant man down a few notches and extract revenge. Devon wanted spirited Bianca so much he declined her company’s bid, leaving her open to pursuit…to bend her to his will and teach her some of his Drakhom skills in bed.

Bookish Things: 27 pages. The cover is the same as the first and third books in the trilogy. Fitting to the story line.

My Review: 

Looking for a night time tale to put you off to sleep? Well don’t pick this one up
You’ll be in for nightmares.

Full of short stories and poetry of the darkest nature I’ve read in a long time, Cupid in Bondage will not fail to deliver if you want gore and erotica in the same breath.

My favourite (if you could call it that), was by far Larger than God, despite the gruesome occurrences, the writing was divine (pun totally intended). Some of the poetry also was a glorious look at the macabre. Sickening was my favourite poem. Sexxxy was an interesting idea, despite the rather lurid descriptions.

I was extremely pleased to see a raft of different types of characters, including age, body type, sex, race, and kinks. And the varying POV from top to bottom, male and female was a delightful mix.

The further into the book you go, the further down the rabbit hole you go, the more grotesque and extreme the stories. It got to the point where I wasn’t enjoying the reading, merely observing it as I read. The actions of the characters so far outside of the realm of my reality it placed it into the realm of complete fantasy.

Definitely not for those who are squeamish or value keeping their lunch down. Cupid in Bondage should only be read by adults who want to experience erotic gore and horror at fever pitch.
