Lawyer Allison English never planned to return to The Den - despite her naughty fantasies about being bound by owner Seth Matthews. But when club guest Tyler Wysong is injured in a scene, Seth turns to Allie for help. Aroused by both men, Allie should turn the case down. But she can't....
After his bad experience, Tyler has no interest in being with another dom. Yet he can't deny his attraction to Master Seth. When Seth offers him a place to stay, Tyler agrees - if Allie will stay, too. But what good is a chaperone who adds to his temptation?
Living with two subs brings out Seth's protective instincts, though Allie insists she's not into the lifestyle, and Tyler swears he's done with it. But the chemistry between the trio prompts them to agree to submit to him for one week, and he'll show them both the true pleasure that a dom can provide.
The intimacy could break them all, or bind them together forever....

Loved this triad story
Is there anything you would change about this book?
The story was good, but its the narrator I would change. Even the hottest sex scenes fizzled because of the monotone style reading.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emily Caldwell?
Jill Redfield, Alice Clayton, Adam Paul or Clarissa Knightly
Did Bonds of Desire inspire you to do anything?
This audio book inspired me to get the ebook version.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Lynda Aicher has come to the party once again with another excellent hot and emotional story. The trust and love that developed between Allison Seth and Tyler is inspiring. Trust (although can be the hardest and scariest hurdle) can heal one's soul just as much as love if you can take a chance and grab on to what is in front of you. I Loved this story as much as the previous two and Hope there is many more books to come in the series.

This is the third book in the series. It was a likable story but not lovable. There was an ice cube scene that was delicious. A menage between 2 men and 1 woman. A control freak lawyer, a male escort, and a bdsm club owner. None like pain but all want each other. The plot of the story wasn't strong but the steamy parts make up for it. Tyler the escort gets hired to be submissive in Seth's bdsm club, the scene has to be stopped because it crosses the line. This dom is actually a politician who thinks he can get away with abusing & raping someone out of commission. Seth feels protective &responsible for Tyler. Seth offers a lawyer friend to do pro bono work if Tyler wants to press charges. Of course, he refuses. During all this, they all realize they want each other...together forever. Only after they deal with their own obstacles to be happy together.

I don't mean a rape scene like two people consenting to act out a rape scene. I mean an actual rape of a male submissive by a male dominant including whipping to the point of blood and non consensual, unlubricated anal sex. I wish I'd seen reviews that pointed this out. Or a trigger warning in the synopsis. If so, I never would have bought the book. Unfortunately, while I managed to continue reading and got through the book, I couldn't get past that opening scene to actually enjoy the story or the characters. I'm disappointed to the point that I don't know if I can read any more of the series, maybe not any more of the author. I'm also asking for my money back.

If you are looking for a book that has a decent plot and will whisk you away to another place where you can listen to hotter than hot scenes....then get this book.
Sometimes when I listen to an erotic book I feel like the book is one big sex scene, with a bit of dialogue, but in this case there was a lot of dialogue in between the sex scenes, and that was nice. The drama was a bit contrived in my opinion, so I can't give it 5 stars, but it was a nice a hot listen.
This is the only book I have listened to in the wicked play series so I feel confident in saying it is fine for a standalone listen because while there were a few references to past events it didn't detract from this story.
In a previous book apparently Ally attended a party at "The Den", the notorious leather club lay out their fantasies. One of the owners, a Dominant names Seth, was intrigued by her....but she was still too vanilla to be ready for him so he didn't approach her. Tyler is a male escort in this book, yes, he gets paid to be a sub or be anything the Dom who is paying wants him to be for a few hours. Tyler was a guest in the club of Master Rex...Seth watched on closed video as Tyler was beaten, and brutally attacked by Master Rex....he had noticed Tyler before...and hated to see the man brutalized but without the safe word being used there is nothing he could do...once Tyler asked for his abuse to stop and Master Rex didn't Seth was able to rush in...but Tyler was beaten badly...too badly....what had Seth allowed to happen! Seth is determined to get a lawyer for Tyler...even though the man has said repeatedly that he is just a whore...anything is allowed to happen to a whore....when Ally appears to sooth Tyler and represent him the sparks fly. What she can't figure out though is why she sees the sparks flying between Tyler and Seth...and Seth and her...and her and Tyler...that's not right....how can that be? Watching the three of them explore what can be and what can't be is the fun of this book.
I'd say this book is worth the credit if you want something HOT, without drama, and for sure if it ever goes on Sale. It wasn't a 5 star master piece, but it works for what it is.

I had to give this one 4 stars just because the sexual climate is so hot. I did like book 1&2 better due to the fact the I enjoyed the stories better. This book was more about the sex and that's ok but a little more story attached would of been nice. The ending seemed a little rushed and would of been much better if it had been enhanced. If your looking for some MMF erotica then you'll like this one.

I love the whole series of Wicked Play and this book was just as good. The story of Seth, Ally and Tyler was really sexy and emotional. Lots of hot sex scenes with MMF action. I think Emily Caldwell did a pretty good job but her male voices need some work. Overall worth the credit

I read/listened out of order but this series is good enough that it doesn't matter. It's sexy and fun while still being touching and serious. Definitely worth a credit.
I LOVE!!! this series Wicked Play it is one of the BEST Audible.com has to offer. MUST READ FOR ANY HARD CORE EROTIC LISTENER. But I am sorry to say this story fell short it needed more hot action and less conflict among it characters.
Emily Caldwell has a hot sexy voice that is suited for narrating exotic novels she is one of the BEST on audible.!!!!!
Would you listen to Bonds of Desire again? Why?
I have enjoyed this 3rd installment as much as I enjoyed the first book.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the compassion the characters displayed
Have you listened to any of Emily Caldwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I read the first 2 books and this is the first one I listened to.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I was moved from beginning to end
