Publisher's Summary

Lord Oliver Marsden has a secret. He's been in love with his childhood friend for years, though Vincent's never shown an interest in him beyond friendship. Ruggedly handsome, wealthy, and successful, Vincent is everything Oliver is not. And Vincent doesn't prefer men.
Then Oliver discovers Vincent hires a man during his visits to a London brothel. Desperate to be with Vincent, Oliver orchestrates a deception, switching places with the brothel's employee. When Oliver arrives at the bedchamber, he's in for another surprise. Restraints and a leather bullwhip? Apparently Vincent isn't as conservative as he appears.
Lord Vincent Prescot has a secret of his own. One kept locked away and only indulged once a month. But this month's appointment is different. The mysterious man is so perfect, so beautiful in his submission, rousing protective instincts Vincent can't deny. Yet he refuses to believe he might truly prefer men, for it could mean the end of his hopes of earning his father's respect.
Will betrayal destroy them or will they be bound together by deception?
Publisher's note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some listeners may find objectionable: anal play/intercourse, BDSM theme and content, including bondage and spanking, male/male sexual practices.

Porn with plot

This was a fun listen but It’s about 90 percent sexy times and 10 percent story and character development. However, based on the length of the story and the publisher’s summary no one should be surprised that it’s mostly porn. The porny bits are BDSM in nature and very explicit. Definitely not safe for public listening. (This is a historical m/m BDSM style romance just in case somehow someone missed that. )The summary gives away a lot of the plot but it’s well written and there’s just enough angst to keep things interesting without going overboard. I’m interested in hearing the next book in the series but only because it come in my romance package as a ‘free’ listen. Usually I prefer books in the 20+ hour range because I like a lot of plot. This book is extremely short. It should be noted that the last 25 minutes are a preview of the second book. If you’re looking for a long listen with deep characters and lots of plot and subplot, this is not the book for you. If you want a fun, sexy, light read -the equivalent of book candy- this is the book for you. I just finished a very long series and needed a break before starting another long series so this was perfect for me to clear my head. As for the narrator: nice job switching between voices. Very distinctive. Mostly hot. Although sometimes a little overdone when begging and desperate. But that could just be me.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

People looking for sexual content only

Has Bound by Deception turned you off from other books in this genre?


Which character – as performed by David Thorpe – was your favorite?

Neither, both were unappealing and lacked any depth

What character would you cut from Bound by Deception?


Any additional comments?

There are few writers who can write a good story with a gay character, primarily because they focus on raw sex rather than the story. A gay character does not need to be a porn star and in fact rarely are as stereotypical as most characters in this genre. This seems to be more typical of American writers, as I have read much more quality material from Brits. This was an exception.
