Summary

Adorably naive and shockingly brilliant Harrison Lessardi only needs two things in life: his pet iguana, Steve, and his undying love of science. That is until he witnesses his best friend lay eggs, and a third must-have strolls into his apartment - the sardonic and mischievous Everard Drake. 

Everard Drake, celebrated doctor of the tremendously wealthy Drake family, has one goal in mind when he arrives at the scene of his youngest brother’s latest disaster: incinerate Harrison Lessardi. Unfortunately for Everard, the moment he spots Harry, incineration becomes an impossibility - he must have the gorgeous beta as his own, even if it means holding him captive on his estate.

But something else lurks behind Everard’s interest in Harry - something that tugs at Everard’s soul in impossible ways, and that will send Everard and Harry down a rabbit hole of discovery that will change the world as they know it. 

An alpha and a beta can’t share a bond. 

Can they? 

Bond is a 78,000 word steamy omegaverse mpreg-ish romance that will leave you in stitches. It contains an unexpectedly consensual kidnapping, giant magical lizards, an iguana with a full wardrobe named Steve, never-ending nicknames, and a HEA that may, or may not involve mosquito nets. For maximum enjoyment, Bond is best heard following the events of Clutch.

Harry, Steve and Everard

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved the first book in the Forbidden Desires series, so I was eagerly anticipating the second book as soon as it became available in audio (as Audiobooks are my jam). Harry is such a quirky character that we meet in the first book and Everard being a physician/scientist as well as Alastair's brother (one of the MCs from book 1), it's such an interesting meeting of the minds as the two meet. Everard is meant to be dealing with Harry who witnessed his room mate Iggy (now Alastair's mate) laying a clutch of 3 dragon eggs. Harry is a Beta but he's such curious mind so full of questions that Everard isn't quite sure what to make of him. This is their story of becoming an unconventional family complete with Steve the iguana. I love the writing style of these two authors and Michael Farraiuolo does an excellent job of bringing these wonderful characters to life. I've lost count of how many times I've listened to this one. Roll on book 3!

Clear your calendar, you won’t put this down

Harry is my favourite. He’s just such a brilliant character!
This book spans most of the same timeline as the first in the series, but focuses on Nate’s roommate Harry and Alistair’s brother Everard, who did not, in fact, ignite or eat Harry as expected. It also furthers the overarching story of the science behind dragon breeding, the rarity of clutches being borne by omegas, and what it means to be a Disgrace. It’s absolutely gripping on both levels.

Hilarious and loving

I loved loved Harry and Everard. They are my favourites in the world of Virginia and Piper.
This was my first audio book by Michael Ferraiuolo, and he really did them both justice.
I loved it, it was great and so full of funny moments and oooh moments.

Love it!

I loved this audiobook. Everard's food-related pet names for Harry were hilarious, as was Ev's tricking Harry into believing he needed to feed him with his semen. And Harry's parents...it was easy to see how he turned into the quirky knowledge-seeking motor-mouth he is! It was great to watch Ev slowly fall in love with Harry who appeared to be absolutely clueless until he was in love too. All around fun, quirky characters, and I can't wait for more. Perry is still one of my favorite characters. He is so sweet, and the voice of calm, knowledge and reason for the new dragon omegas (and omega-beta's).

The narration is great, especially the voicing of Everard. Calm, cool, and collected, Kumquat:-)

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook at my request, and have voluntarily left this honest review.

Love Harry so much


I didn't wait long for this book to come out on audible but it was long enough, I loved these two in the first book and now they have their happy. Michael Ferraiuolo does an amazing job bring them to life.
Everard and Harry fit so well both being scientists, Everard's terms of endearment for Harry were fun, varied and made me hungry. Harry was eager and enthusiastic making Everard loosen up a little bit. More detail about the Dragon world and how it works in this book, but it's just as steamy as the first.
I loved it, it is a great second book and I can't wait for book three to see where the authors take us next.

Loved it!

I really enjoyed this book. Hot, steamy romance, science, and Dragons. What more could you want?
Harry is such a sweet character who is so very lovable.
Everard is brilliant and mischievous and smartly funny in his own way.
This was a great second book in this series, and I cannot wait to read more.

Perfect character interplay & fantastic narration!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5 stars
🔥🔥🔥🔥 Heat Level: 3.5
🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration: 5

OMG! I just loved this book so much!! Cluelessness, humor, food-related pet names and dragon style intrigue, all made for a fantastic story!!

I just love Harry and Ev so much!! Both characters are so unique and fantastic on their own but their character interplay was some of the best things created and the narration by Michael Ferraiuolo was incredible!!!! I love the cluelessness, inquisitiveness and unique smarts that makeup Harry is just the best. I love his internal dialogue which he usually speaks out loud and his fascination and love of all things dragons is both a joy and hilarity. He’s clueless, yet so smart. He’s overzealous, yet adorable. He is just plain loveable!!!

Now Ev, on the other hand, is the picture of a distinguished dragon and his interactions with Harry along with the never-ending list of hilarious food-related nicknames make for a fantastic mix of humor, sass, and sarcasm! I found their connection perfectly matched and really enjoyed their journey. I loved that we got more insight into this world and the intriguing world of dragons. I really look forward to more in this series and look forward to seeing what happens next to these dragons and their mates!!

Another fantastic story and now one of my all-time favs!!!!

Thanks for reading!

This series keeps getting better and funnier!

Bond is book 2 in the Forbidden Desires series, which should be read in order for maximum enjoyment.

Everard was a bit of a jerk to Harry at first, not that Harry minded that much when he was getting what he wanted, but still. It was fun to see proper Everard all out of sorts when faced with the much more innocent Harry and even more so, to see him unable to resist Harry's charm. And of course, I love Harry, he was such a delightful character. It didn't hurt that Everard and Harry had chemistry in spades, once Harry started to discover his libido, at least. ;)

I couldn't wait to get my hands on this audiobook because I adored Harry and Everard in book 1 and I loved them even more in Bond. The storyline, the seamless way Virginia Kelly and Piper Scott meshed their writing styles and Michael Ferraioulo's fantastic job bringing all these characters to life—so much so that while I'm almost as eager for the next two books, I think I'm going to wait to get them all in audiobook format—continue to make this series into one of my top favorites this year.

Harrison story!

Harrison is the sweetest nerd. He is curious and perky in all the right ways. I was wondering what was going on with Everard. Everard seemed like he enjoy him as a pet but really a beta and an alpha dragon? The combination is super fun and entertaining. I do love this world Ms Scott and Ms Kelly have created. I think this one is my favorite yet, the endearments and the endless questions. Lovely!!! The narrator did an awesome job too.

My favorite book in the series. Great narration!

I read the Forbidden Desires Series on kindle unlimited and this is by far my favorite book. Harry and Everard are an adorable couple. Harry is oblivious, nerdy, and utterly enthralled by herpetology, Steve (his iguana), and all things dragons. Everard is in a constant state of bemused attraction with the earnest little beta. I read & listened to the first book and I could not wait to hear Harry's love story. Michael Ferraiuolo does an excellent job across both books keeping all the characters consistent. Totally worth a credit!

A delightful and magical audiobook

If you want to listen a humorous and playful audiobook that will keep you engaged by it's fascinating plotline and world building, it's quirky and charismatic main and secondary characters and hot AF and smutty sexy times , BOND is the story for you.

I read BOND when it first came out as an Ebook and loved it. Now , listening to it have me , loving it even more.

Michael Ferraiuolo was utterly perfection in his narration.

Bond is book two in the Forbidden Desires series and it's the story of Harry and Everard . This book isn't a standalone , you need to listen to Clutch , book one in order to understand and truly enjoy this brilliant series.

Full disclosure, I found myself giggling and snorting like a 🐖 piggy loon while listening to this audiobook .

There is nothing better than listening to a tale about a sweet, talkative and nerdy Herpetology scholar , gorgeous Amethyst Dragons 🐉, a well dressed Iguana, Byzantium color Dragon's whelps , one of the kind Orchid and irradesan Opal Dragon's eggs to help you escape reality, laugh and relax.

A credit happily and well well spent.

Great Series

I received an ARC of this audio for my honest review. This book is about Harry and Everard. I really enjoyed Harry in the first book and was glad he got to find his own dragon. Everard was going to get rid of Harry as he knows too much about their species. He winds up falling for him and they have their only clutch of 1. This story had me laughing with all the questions that Harry had and the nicknames that Ev had for Harry. Can't wait to listen to the next book in this series.

Fantastic!!

Words can't express how much I loved this one in audio! Piper Scott and Virginia Kelly are two of my favorite authors and did a lovely job with this one, the second in the Forbidden Desires series. Michael Ferraiuolo is a master narrator and is the perfect choice for this series!

An incredibly funny, entertaining, lovely series!

I laughed out loud while listening to this audio, even when I knew the story. Michael Ferraiulo (I hope I spelled it right) does an incredible job, narrating these books. Each character has a distinct, recognisable voice and the miracle is Michael never slips up! These books are great to read, but even better to listen to. I treasure each and every one of them.

So good

Loved this book. The many nicknames made me laugh and the story was good as well.

The narration was wonderful with a wide variety of voices that fit each character so well.

Better than Book 1

First, I can't actually imagine reading this one myself. I think the constant change in nicknames (the constant use if nicknames at all) would have irritated me in text. This narrator makes them work in a way that makes them consistently charming and affectionate.

Much of the work if the world building was done in book 1 (this isn't a standalone), so this book allows for more plot development and a slower build to their relationship. There is more character development, and lots of geeking out about reptiles (there's science in my paranormal romance). I really enjoyed it, and am looking forward to book 3.

So many nicknames!

Harry and Everard are one of my favorite couples. Harry's endless curiosity and Everard's fabulous nicknames make these two wonderful to listen to.
Michael Ferraiuolo does an amazing job bringing these two to life. All of the characters are easily distinguishable and so much fun to listen to.
