Publisher's Summary

"My misbehaviour during the exam added to my awareness of what I wanted sexually. For all that Tiggy was perfectly friendly and polite, she represented everything I wasn't, and everything I'd set myself against. So, in different ways, did all the macho-men, the stuck-up landowners, the crude farm boys, my archetypal males, all the figures from my fantasies. Given that I wanted to be restrained, it made sense for it to be done by those types rather than the nice guys. After all, just because somebody turns me on doesn't mean I have to like them." When university lecturer Hazel Jones takes the most popular of her female environmental-science students as a lodger, she is expecting a procession of attractive men to follow. What she doesn't expect is Tiggy's diary to be left out every day. Knowing what her lodger gets up to, she is unable to resist reading it. It's not quite what she expects, and the revelations quickly lead her down a path she never expected to take.

Witty, sexy satire

I didn't know that a frankly erotic book could have a proper plot, and be funny and satirical, until I listened to this one.

The central character is appealing and outrageously libidinous; she has plenty of sex both real and imagined, and displays modest but real character development.

I loved the gentle fun poked at the save-the-planet brigade, so earnest in their political correctness that they even censor their own sexual fantasies.

And the hilarious comic twist at the end had me chuckling at odd moments for days.

I thought it was very well read, too. The peripheral characters are pretty stock: twee Scotswoman, uncompromising activist speaking broad Estuarine, ageing Cambridge don, City millionaire; but so convincingly delivered you almost don't notice how two-dimensional the author has made them. Some American listeners may find the accents take getting used to.

I went back to Audible looking for another book by the same author but drew a blank. Who knows? maybe soon.

Thoroughly recommended.

Imaginative fantasies!

NOT your typical Phd professor! Creative fantasies abound from a constantly aroused female, tantalizing imaginations that are rewarded in unexpected ways. The English setting and accent took a few minutes for this Yank to fully understand...but rewind and listen again - you'll do it a lot anyway just to enjoy the scenes one more time! Deliciously kinky and delightfully detailed.

Fantastic

Got to agree the story does start slow but builds up. Loved the story, believable characters, written with excellent knowledge. The narrator is absolutely brilliant, perfect can not fault at all. I will be listening to this over and over again, could just do with a Bound in blue part 2 would love to know how Hazel and Tiggy get on. Totally recommend this book.

Slow burner but worth the wait

A rather different erotic novel than i am used to but none the less very enjoyable.
Great characters that take a long time to get going but that only adds to the tension and the final 4 chapters are very erotic.
The main characters Tiggy and Hazel just ooze sex appeal and leave you wanting more of the two of them.Very well written and highly arousing i will no doubt be enjoying this again and again.
