I had to sneak off for some "me time" before I was able to continue. The dialog is just so dirty and sexy. I leave it till last as if its an afterthought, but it really is the driving force in everything that happens. Its great, generates tension all the way throughout, and I loved it. I love how it drives many of the decisions all the way through, and how Klaus takes advantage as it goes. This book was great. I can't WAIT for book three. Oct 13, Kristin rated it liked it Shelves: This book is really hard for me to rate and review.
Let me start by saying that I loved book one. It's right up there as one of my very favorite dark books ever. Even book 3 sounds extremely promising and I intend to read it as soon as it's released. Bind and Keep Me was well written and very much in line with book one. My dislike of it has nothing to do with the author and everything to do with my own personal preferences. I suspected that I wasn't going to like that going in and I was right. I hated every minute of Klaus fucking with this other woman.
I suppose I prefer my males devoted to the point of obsession. I do NOT like this particular dynamic, it felt like a betrayal, regardless of whether Jodie was ok with it or not. I was happier with how book 1 left them. View all 8 comments. Aug 08, Lina rated it it was amazing Shelves: How do I say this? If you like stories with dubious consent, then you have to read Bind and Keep Me. Well, first you have to read Take Me, Break Me. Then you have to read Bind and Keep Me.

By the end, you'll probably have gone through at least three pairs of panties and a few pairs of batteries, and your ideas about right and wrong will have morphed into a gray area that you might not want to examine too closely.
But the good news is that your significant other will need to write a personalized 'thank you' note to Cari for all the hawt, kinky sex you'll be requesting, so I guess it's okay that you'll have readjusted your moral compass.

Review of Bind & Keep Me by Cari Silverwood (book #2 of Pierced Hearts)w/giveaway
Are you still with me? Look, I'm just trying to keep this review spoiler free, okay? I won't tell you what actually happened. All I will say is that Klaus' solution to their major problem was to take a captive - Stephanie - and do bad things to her body and fuck with her mind in order to ensure her compliance and loyalty. The consent here is very dubious.
Some may say it wasn't consensual at all. Non-con treads a very delicate line. An author has to be careful to not turn the readers off, to keep the characters believable, likable, and relatable. I think that Cari Silverwood did a great job with balancing the realism with the fantasy realism of the fantasy? Creating a situation where the capture fantasy made sense in a contemporary setting, was really interesting, and really freaking HAWT. I wanted to see her cave in, apparently, all on her own. So she could see, feel, taste, her defeat against a nothing background.
I'd volunteer to be his willing or even unwilling victim any day. Cari kept us guessing - is he a good man who had to make very difficult decisions and then enforced them in very interesting [HAWT and scary] ways? Or did he lose his shit? Stephanie is our victim. Her big eyes stared up at me. Glasslike orbs that said nothing in this flickering darkness.
I could empathize with almost anything and anyone, Klaus had told me. I knew what she must be going through. I did sympathize, and yet… She writhed again, away from me an inch, as if escaping my touch. I moved my foot in and, keeping my eyes open so I missed nothing in her response, I pressed it harder, ever harder, onto her neck until she stilled. Then I leaned down, and let my other foot slip also, to rest lightly on her ribs. She stayed there, quiet, and I thought her throat moved in a swallow.
I would have to be careful. This was a little creepy even to me. Naughty things happen to growly kittens. I was his victim, whether I chose to be, or not. I also knew that I found it arousing. Now do you get it? Go 1Click on amazon. Review copy provided by author in return for an honest review. I also beta read this book. Jan 02, Ruth rated it it was ok Shelves: The continuing story of Klaus an Jodie. This story was very disturbing..
What starts out as an average day of going out with friends, Jodie soon becomes involved in something totally unexpected. Jodie is relieved when Klaus shows up to be her hero. Then things take a strange turn, and things quickly go down hill from there. What happens next can only be described as sick and disturbing. I was able to get over that, because Jodie seemed to be ok with it eventually..
But now, we see that Jodie has her own dark side and it can be almost as disturbing as Klaus's. I just can't wrap my head around caring for someone, and yet calling them pet or slave and making them eat on the floor. Nor could I get over Jodie standing by while Klaus pushed his sick sadistic ways onto someone else. I did not care for this book.. Sep 29, Hollow Well rated it liked it Shelves: I enjoyed this book well enough. Perhaps I read it too closely on the heels of completing its predecessor. I think this was done so as to keep the aggressors in a good light, but add a sense of darkness.

However, I feel that a lot was set up in the plot with hooks for great adventure, but at each turn the book reminded the reader that the great adventure here is sex.

Things are going well for Jodie and Klaus, until a very bad situation happens and the life these two knew has to change. This book was harder for me than the first. I had a bit of a problem with how Steph was added to their relationship. And, how Klaus would handle certain situations. I felt like he was more infatuated with Steph and it bothered me.
Also, he was more loving toward the end of the first book with Jodie, but not so much in This book takes off from where Take Me Break Me, left off. Also, he was more loving toward the end of the first book with Jodie, but not so much in this book. I wanted that for Steph and Jodie. The sex scenes were great though! I didn't mind the mff or ff scenes, just the way he seemed more into Steph and the lack of love bothered me. Don't get me wrong there were times he showed his love for Jodie but not very much.
I loved the connection between Steph and Jodie, though. I can't wait to read Make Me Yours Evermore! This book gives you a little glimpse as to what is to come.

I loved Klaus in the first book but after this one It's fascinating how twisted his mind is but ungodly hot and panty melting at the same time. The power dynamic between the three characters was perfectly designed. The introduction of the new woman did not take away from Jodie and Klaus' relationship, which was a worry of mine. In fact, it completed it and makes this book stand out among its genre.
If you haven't read this series yet, I highly recommend you run to Amazon right now and purchase it. The story begins with Take Me Break Me where we meet Jodi and Klaus and they live out a capture fantasy that turns real. In Bind and Keep Me Cari takes the dubcon and moves into noncon. This book isn't for everyone. If you aren't into capture and noncon books you might want to pass. But if you are OMG you have got to start this series from the beginning cause you will be hooked. I don't even know where to start with this one with out giving out any spoilers.
But let me just say that Ms Silverwood completely blew my mind. She takes us into a dark world of something I don't want to call BDSM because its not always consensual but dayum is the sex H. I am seriously in love with Klaus. He is the uber Dom. The feelings he shows for Jodi and the female whom I won't name because of spoilers is beautiful to read.
One second you are thinking that this is just so wrong but then you do a complete because it seems so right. I'm not going to get into anymore because I don't want to give anything away. Just know that this story is way more than you will be expecting and you won't be disapointed. Oh and one last thing This story continues from the last, but takes on a dramatic twist when klaus , actually does have to kidnap a female after site witnesses him murder someone, to save Jodie. It's all been a big misunderstanding, and the victim is in fact partially to blame for the circumstances as drugs are used, and it all goes horribly wrong.
Klaus is there to help save the day and sorts the evidence, so not to implicate Jodie, having the scene cleaned.. He kidnaps the witness, since he can not leave he This story continues from the last, but takes on a dramatic twist when klaus , actually does have to kidnap a female after site witnesses him murder someone, to save Jodie.
He kidnaps the witness, since he can not leave her behind to tell all, and decides he must turn her into a sex slave or kill her as well, to save himself and Jodie. This seems so out of character for Klaus, but here we see a big shift in his personality. Is this the effect of all the kidnapping scenarios have had on him? This book was very well written, so much so I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read more from this author. View all 4 comments. May 15, Kym rated it it was amazing Shelves: I enjoyed this so much more than the first!!! Not much i can say except screw Cari sideways for ending the story the way she did!
Is there another book after this???? I sure hope so. I loved experiencing Stephanie's submission to her captors and i can only image how things would go for the head strong switch Kat! I know Chris will definitely have his hands full!!!! Sep 07, Kathyesf rated it really liked it. Wow I don't even know how I feel about this book. I have read a lot of dark erotica but this one was harder for me to read than any other.
I had to take several breaks. Maybe it was the couple aspect of it I just don't know. This is the kind of book that you read and as you become aroused from reading you start to question yourself and wonder how can this be who am I and how can this be a turn on for me.

I'm so overwhelmed with this path. Where can this end up that makes any sense? Good Lord, seriously, wow! I can honestly just say this book is dark, dangerous, and so far off from the straight and narrow path.
Review of Bind & Keep Me by Cari Silverwood (book #2 of Pierced Hearts)w/giveaway – Harlie's Books
Stephanie is basically broken and twisted from this series of events. What is Jodie and Klaus thinking? Let's not even mention Chris and Kat's path. I loved this story, even more than 'Take Me, Break Me! The suspense, the sex, the head fuckery, the dominance and the submission was beautifully woven into a book I couldn't put down.
Jun 23, Kent rated it it was amazing Recommended to Kent by: This was a tough book to put down. I enjoyed this story, but I wish the author had let us know how it went when all three got back together and it would have been nice to know where they went when they moved out. Still a great series overall. Aug 16, Shayna rated it it was amazing Shelves: Quite frankly, I'm emotionally exhausted, in a good way of course. Bind and Keep Me definitely puts your heart and your mind through the ringer once or twice.
Cari Silverwood showed me how beautiful and how twisted dark erotic romances can be, and she has set the bar on thi Shayna Renee's Spicy Read's Top Pick Cari Silverwood never ceases to amaze me! Cari Silverwood showed me how beautiful and how twisted dark erotic romances can be, and she has set the bar on this specific genre.
I can't tell if this is me rising to the occasion, or descending into Hell. We are reunited with this couple, and I was delighted to see that they were still going strong with their fascinating and sadistic relationship. I am not usually the type to love this darker side of BDSM and capture fantasy, but the way that these characters burrowed themselves inside my soul and showed me that not only was what they had completely off the charts erotic as hell, but it was THEIRS, and it was beautiful and intriguing. I want the very worst of you as well as the very best.
Sometimes it's tough to follow along when an author puts in the POV of multiple characters, but in this case it worked brilliantly. This is the type of story that is so emotionally charged, that you just have to know specifically what each character is thinking and feeling at the time. It would have drove me nuts if I only got to hear Jodie's POV while Klaus was the one truly struggling with his thoughts.
I can't really explain why I am so in LUST with Klaus, I mean I should be fucking scared of that dude, but reading his POV and knowing deep down he has these urges he is trying to control, and when he talks about his Jodie, my heart drops, because even though he can't say the words, you can tell he is completely in love with his pet. I struggled with this at first, because I'm not sure what direction the author was going to take on this threesome. This could have got real ugly, real fast. But the fact that we got her POV and witnessed the struggles that Steph was having with her emotions, played a big part on why this was such an intriguing read for me.
The relationship that grew between Stephanie and Jodie was incredibly beautiful. A different side of Jodie came out around Stephanie, a little Domme perhaps. That was the right direction with those two, because if Jodie didn't have the upper hand with Stephanie, I don't think that these three could work. Seriously, I want to go through this entire book with you because I loved it so damn much, but then I will start spilling spoilers, and I don't want to do that.
I will say, that you definitely need to read this series in order starting with book 1 Take Me Break Me. This sets the foundation of Klaus and Jodie's relationship, and to understand it, you have to know what they went through. When an author can transport you to a place where you are not fully comfortable, but can still captivate you so much that you don't want to leave, is an incredible talent. Cari Silverwood has impressed the hell out of me and I can't wait to see what she comes out with next.
I just want to warn you that this is not a typical romance that you usually see me review on this site. It's dark and a little twisted, it's sexy and disturbing, but I guarantee that you will find a part of yourself in these magnificent characters. Sep 20, Regan rated it it was amazing Shelves: One night, while out with a girlfriend, Jodie decides to attend a party which quickly turns south as she is drugged. Klaus is alarmed when she doesn't return and goes out to find her To cover up the now crime-scene Klaus and Jodie take home the only witness, a young woman with intentions to hold her captive until they can trust her and then set her free.
As the dynamic of their relationship changes with a third party involved, where does that leave the future? I was a bit impatient and my peeking definitely bit me in the butt since after finishing this I now realize that I do not share the opinion of the majority.
This proves how subjective reading truly is. The beginning of this book immediately hooked me and I became engrossed instantly in the story. Klaus' action to me was justifiable and I empathized with him during the beginning of the book. However, with a new female captive it took me a bit to warm up to Jodie's new characterization as a Domme-in-training. To me there is something more heinous about a woman captor versus a male captor.
The psychological dynamic between two women is more emotional, soft, and supposed to be nurturing in my opinion so to see Jodie turn dark so quickly was a shock. However, Jodie warms up over the course of the book and I was pleasantly surprised to read the female captive preferred Jodie over Klaus. No one should feel so good about something so wrong. Maybe his soul is darker than he feared. Glossary of US and Australian terms In the interests of not jerking most of my readers out of the story with some unfamiliar word usages, I opted to sometimes use the US word instead.
This example is why I hesitate: Klaus put on his thongs and strolled out the door to take his daily walk on the beach. Such bravery in the face of overwhelming superiority. I stopped with my palm pressing her upper back down onto the mattress. Was she a true submissive? I was fairly certain she was. I scare you because I like pain more than you can comprehend. But, little toy, I am going to hurt you more than you think you can take. She froze in the middle of inhaling.
I smiled and grasped a big handful of those dark locks just above her nape. I levered her head back until she was arched and her breasts were no longer concealed beneath her. So I took one in the grip of my other hand. I squeezed both her breast and the fistful of hair, and I leaned down to look into her fear-darkened eyes. She swallowed and I felt her endeavor to shake her head. Long strands of her hair fell across her face. Silverwood is back with the second book with Klaus and Jodie. A few things before I write the review:. On with the review…I will not spoil it for you by telling you what happens nor who or what is involved.
See 4 for a teaser. Jodie has messed up big time and Klaus wants to fix it. Typical man but with Klaus nothing is ever easy. Sorry but if I said anymore, it would definitely spoil it. There are only three authors that I will read that write dark erotic and Ms. Silverwood is one of them. Jodie and Klaus are far from perfect people.
Even though its dark, they are relatable and loveable beneath all of dark erotic theme.
