    3 - "I'm all in." Stars.Bind Me Before You Go is Harper Kincaid’s first addition to the now long-running SERVE series, it is also the first work I have read by this author. On the whole it was an easy read. I think I am right in saying this is the shortest addition to the series so far, and that in essence is what let the book down a little.There is no doubt Harper can write, and write well, however I found the main issues that I had with Cassidy and David’s story were pacing, everything happens very quickly for this couple, think ‘insta’ on a shot of espresso, and you are in the right mind-set. For me they would have benefitted with a little more development between them, especially at the beginning, and definitely prior to what is essentially their first ‘scene’ at SERVE together. As a couple they were both pretty likeable, David has issues with commitment, Cassidy is looking to live life to the full after recently arriving in New York. You can sense where the story is going pretty early on, but it was an enjoyable and relatively uncomplicated read, that only took a couple of hours to get through.I am looking forward to seeing what the author has in store in her second book for this series Claim Me Before I Break, due later in 2015, here’s hoping it’s a bit longer, with a little more development to it.ARC generously provided by Entangled, in exchange for the above honest review.

    ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review[image error]Bind Me Before You Go by Harper Kincaid is a very light easy and fast read. Though this book happens to deal with a BDSM club and the sexual kink of shibari, I found this book to be very light since this is not your normal dominant alpha male. Ms. Kincaid showcased more of an emotional connection as the hero and heroine navigated through their two week exclusive relationship of student/teacher and sexual partners but through this intense relationship, walls of emotions and feelings were beginning to crack. As feelings begins to intensify, will both of them be on the same page that this student/teacher relationship is so much more? Will our hero realize that his need for control must also go hand in hand with letting go and accepting that there is another person who is willing to shoulder his burden?I have to say that I did enjoyed this quick yet sensual relationship. My only problem with this book was that I wished it was indeed longer since I would have preferred to get more of a deeper emotional connection as well as more of the bondage art between the hero and heroine. But overall, Bind Me Before You Go was an enjoyable quick sexy read. [image error]Review can also be found on Four Chicks Flipping Pages:: http://fourchicksflippingpages.weebly...Harper Kincaid

    3 Disney starsThis is the latest addition to the fantastic Serve series, and this contributor, Harper Kincaid, is a new author to me.Cassidy Peyton has something missing in her life, having recently moved to NY, and feels a trip to the exclusive Serve BDSM club would help to fill those gaps. David Cavill is head of Security at Serve, having had plenty of experience in that area, and finds himself in a teacher/student situation rather quickly with this newbie. David’s specialisation lies in the art of Shibari, and once Cassidy experiences the feel of his fretwork, she becomes quite literally hooked.David is not a classic Dominant, by his own admission, but his devotion to his artwork, and tenderness he displayed towards Cassidy was heartwarming.The speed of this story is immediately apparent, and whilst it all culminates briskly, I did enjoy the connection between this couple. It would, however, have benefitted from a little more length, and subsequently, depth in order to enhance and expand the storyline significantly..IMO. I did enjoy this authors voice very much, and would definitely pick her up again.ARC provided by Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review..

    ***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog*** Bind Me Before You Go by Harper KincaidPublisher: BrazenPublication Date: July 21, 2015Rating: 3 starsSource: eARC from NetGalley***Warning: this is an adult book, and for the eyes of mature readers***Summary (from Goodreads):His heart is bound tighter than the bondage he craves...Determined to put her past behind her, Cassidy Peyton moves to the Big Apple. But New York has a few dark secrets of its own, including Serve, an exclusive BDSM club. It's a place she isn't sure she's ready for, until she sees him watching her. Hot. Intent. Knowing.

But as their bond deepens, Cassidy must decide if she can love a man whose heart is bound tighter than the form of bondage he craves...What I Liked:I've never ventured into the BDSM world before - like the protagonist of this book, I'm very wary of it, especially from what I've heard about Fifty Shades of Grey. Never read the books, never seen the movie, but I can tell you now - that series, and BDSM, aren't my thing. Not really. I mean, I guess I've never tried it, so I can't shut it down, but theoretically, it's not my thing. I guess I won't really know until (if) I try some sort of it. ANYWAY. This was my first venture into scratching the surface of BDSM, and I must say, this book wasn't too bad. The BDSM in this book felt light, not like what I was expecting. Good or bad thing!Cassidy is a fairly rational, clear-headed, boring person. She moved to New York to get some change in her life, but she didn't expect to be joining her roommate Allison at a BDSM club called Serve. Nor does she plan on meeting David Cavill, a handsome, thrilling stranger at Serve who lights her nerve endings on fire. Cassidy and David can't resist each other, but are they prepared for more than they bargained for?This book is so short! Yet we get a lot of detail and background about Cassidy, and David. Both of them have issues, and both of them are hardworking, passionate individuals. Cassidy grew up in a difficult place, and David has a home life that isn't easy. The two of them are a great pair, and not just sexually. They have plenty of chemistry together, but they also connect emotionally. I love the subplot with Cassidy's roommate Allison and David's friend Leo! Leo is an instructor at Serve, and he and David have worked together at Serve together, and are friends. Leo and Allison meet and the attraction is instant. I like the pair of them!The story goes beyond the romance, though the heart of this book deals with Cassidy trying something new - BDSM with David. David is into a specific type of bondage, and it isn't *super* kinky, actually. I expected a lot kinkier things in this book, but there really is only one "type" of BDSM going on in this book, and it's pretty mild. The relationship is developed super quickly, which bothered me, but meh, they fell for each other hard. But I feel like this book could have benefited from another fifty pages. More on this below!The chemistry was steamy, the tension fairly thick. I thought this book would be a little hotter, given that it's a BDSM-based book, but that's okay. Overall, I was pleased with this one!What I Did Not Like:This book is waaaay too short. The author tries to cram in character development, relationship development, and a very intricate world into a super short book! Like, novella short! I think she does a pretty good job of introducing the BDSM, but the character development was info-dump-like. Also, the relatnioship was super speedy. We have "I love you's" thrown away way too quickly into the relationship.Also? There is supposed to be BDSM in this book. There is literally like, ONE sex scene. It involves BDSM, but the BDSM seems mild. Unless... my sexual knowledge has gotten super strange (scary thought), and BDSM suddenly seems tame. I don't think that's the case though. The fact that there is only one sex scene is a trouble to begin with. Romance novels - especially the Brazen novels I've read - need at least three in the book. Not to mention that this is a book marketed with BDSM in it. I expected more!Would I Recommend It:I liked this Brazen novel, but I wouldn't necessary consider it a priority Brazen read. It's a good one, but perhaps not the best Brazen I've read. It's on the mild side of BDSM, so even if you're not into that kind of thing, trust me, it's not bad at all. Nowhere near FSoG kind of kinky (not that I specifically know what happened in that book). Rating:3.5 stars > rounded down to 3 stars. I'm glad I had a chance to read this one! I can't believe I'm saying this but I wish it were a little more kinky. If you know what I mean. I love the steamy romance and the story was pretty interesting! I'll definitely be looking for more of Kincaid's books in the future.

    I enjoyed Bind me Before You Go. David and Cassidy were both likeable characters and their story was reasonably steamy. “You know real BDSM isn’t like what they show in the movies, right?”Right, and if I'm honest this was more akin to lighter kink than BDSM. David may be a Shibari rope master and I found him thoughtful, considerate and protective and his art is described well, but I didn't find him the slightest bit dominant. Cassidy was likeable; strong and sweet, she's someone you could imagine being friends with and her chemistry with David burns bringing some touching moments. But this story isn't without its flaws; I didn't buy into her willingness and it all just seemed too easy, plus (view spoiler)[ when you decide to use mental illness and genetics as part of the story, make sure you pay attention to something as serious as the hero going diving without his wetsuit (hide spoiler)]I have to be honest and say it was the likeability factor and the chemistry between this couple that held my interest. I don't think this is a book that will blow anyone away, but it was an enjoyable enough addition to the Serve series.

    I received an ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review, and here it is.Wow! This novel was unexpectedly good. What I expected was just another BDSM novel, and I've read many of them, since the dreadfully written 50 Shades novels made kinkiness more acceptable to the mainstream. Cassidy, our heroine has recently moved to New York. Her new roommate cajoles her into being her safety net at a BDSM club she's just joined, named Serve. All she plans to do is wait for a friend at the bar while her friend attends a newbies class. At the bar, she meets David Cavill, a security expert, club member, and Shibari rope Master, who has been asked by the member of the club giving the newbie demonstration, and who is very interested in Cassidy's roommate, to babysit Cassidy for the hour-long class.When these two meet, they're attracted to one another. Although Cassidy expressed no interest in BDSM, David convinces her to fill out an application, just to pass the time, and as they talk, the sparks between these two ignite. But David has secrets he doesn't want to share, even though he promises Cassidy that his particular kink is all about mutuality, and that they will both be submissive to one another. What follows is some of the hottest fiction I've read in years, so hot that I was surprised my Kindle didn't burst into flames. The only wrong note, is that I felt that Cassidy, new to this lifestlye, would not be quite so willing to be part of a naked Shibari demonstration in front of a club audience quite so quickly.In addition to being one hot, albeit too short, romance, this novel is also a highly emotional examination of two people with rocky pasts who help each other heal, and even though I would have preferred this novel to be more fleshed-out, no pun intended, it was still an incredibly good read, and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the Serve series.

    Originally posted at Booklovers For LifeBind Me Before You Go is the latest addition to the Serve series, which I’m a big fan of. Though it’s a fairly good, enjoyable read, I wouldn’t say it’s my new favorite of the series. It was too short for my liking, but the characters were likable and the writing was solid. Harper Kincaid is a new author for me, but I would definitely read more from her if she wrote something a little longer.Cassidy Peyton moves to New York looking for a fresh start. She feels like she’s missing something in life, so she agrees to go to Serve, a BDSM club, with her roommate. There, she meets David Cavill, an expert in the art of Shibari, Japanese rope bondage. They instantly feel a connection to one another, and they agree to have a two week affair where they learn to trust and explore each other with their bodies. Harper Kincaid can certainly write some hot, steamy scenes, and I was really intrigued by David’s rope kink.The romance felt a bit lacking. It’s not exactly instalove, but the book is so short that they fall in love too quickly and unbelievably. Both have demons haunting their pasts, which I would’ve liked to be more developed, but again, the book was too short for the story development to be solid enough. Still, Cassidy and David really made a sweet couple, and I enjoyed their book for the most part. If you’re in the mood for a short, quick, steamy read, I’d recommend Bind Me Before You Go. The good writing and hot kink made this a worthwhile read.Thanks to the publisher for generously providing me an ARC to review.Amazon Ebook: this review? Subscribe to Booklovers For Life for more!

    Got an ARC from Net Galley. Thanks Entangled.This book isn't for everyone. I don't think many readers would take this book with them when they go out. This is the kind of book you'd want to enjoy when you just want to unwind on the weekend and have some alone time. It isn't hard to figure out what this book is about from the title. Of course it comes with a sexy cover so you know what you're getting into from the start.Cassidy moves to New York. She wants to figure out what she wants in her life. She wants to break free of getting into relationships with men where she turns herself into what she thinks they want her to be. Now she's in the driver's seat and she decides to go to a sex club with her roommate one evening. She is entering into a new world and while there she meets a guy.I do like that Cassidy is the one that's in charge of what happens. She meets David and starts to discover what she wants in her life. David has his own issues about relationships so they are both learning about themselves as they fall in love and deal with how this is going to change their lives. I like that Cassidy is the one that is in control of what is happening since that's a refreshing change to having the guy be in charge. I also like that this book is writing about this like it is just something that some people do. There's no shame in it. Sure it isn't for everyone but just because you aren't into this kind of thing doesn't mean you can't enjoy the story as it unfolds.

    Serve is back with its latest offering and while it’s a reasonably quick read, it certainly packs a lot into the story. The author has given us two characters that will worm their way into your heart and have you cheering for them when they get their HEA.David and Cassidy are thrown together and quickly make the most of it. Do they ever. (fans self-thinking about it) When David offers Cassidy the chance to find her true sexual self, they soon find themselves falling deeper and harder than either expected.“Two weeks of the best sex of your life. Two weeks to help you discover that letting go of your inhibitions is a way to share yourself and your power, not blindly give it up.”But as the woman with the sheltered upbringing and the man who hides his family fall hard, can they overcome their past and find a way to be together and to continue to bring the best out in each other or will it keep them apart?This is a hot read worthy of the Serve series. The author has created two characters that have smoking hot chemistry from their first meeting and it only gets hotter. This was my first taste of this author and I’m ready for more.I received a copy of this book for an honest review from the publisher.

    BDSMy novella read about a rope bondage master H and a former people pleaser h(at least when it came to men) who is trying to discover what pleases her. H has some baggage which has caused past girlfriends and his fiancee to run from him so he pushes h away once ( reducing a star for that lol!) but he makes it up to h in a few days and there is a HEA. Liked the h a lot and the H too apart from the pushing away thing. Great communication between h/H which I liked. There's some stuff about Shibari( rope bondage) which means author has done her research, but I mostly skimmed it.Safety : (view spoiler)[ Safe.H was in love with fiancee in college, when she left him bcos of his family baggage, he was heartbroken and never went back to college bcos he didn't want to see her. Its been 2 yrs now. He does sleep with women casually at the BDSM club that h meets him at, but he doesn't do serious bcos he thinks no women will stay and he is trying to protect himself. He is smitten with h and proposes a 2 week exclusive thing before he leaves for his next mission, but in those 2 weeks they both fall in love.(hide spoiler)]

    3.5 Stars~ I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ~ First off let me say I love Entangled Brazen's Serve series, it always gives me a little escape from my daily life and into a world of sexy, determined, caring men and beautiful strong, loving women, with just the right amount of spice and drama. I also love that this long running series is a series that is made up of work written by several different authors so just when you think you have down a pattern of writing they throw in some one new and shake things up making it still exciting to pick up a book even when you are on number eight. I think Harper Kincaid did a beautiful job with these two characters. She stepped away from the heavy feeling that can revolve around the BDSM lifestyles when have seen in previous books and gives us something a bit lighter although I think perhaps more impactful due to factors with in the story that do not revolve around the couples romantic life choices. I loved David and Cassidy. I enjoyed how David while having some typical alpha male traits was anything but typical. He would not be what I would consider a classic Dom, he has certain predilections (the art of Shibari) yes, but not once did I feel as though he wanted to be necessarily controlling of Cassidy. Cassidy, I loved her independent streak, loved that she was really just a regular girl...she wasn't some high powered wealthy socialite, she's a social worker with a difficult past who fought her way to get to where she is. I loved that she wanted to find herself realizing after years of acting that she had never given herself the time to find out who SHE is instead of being who others wanted her to be. Bind Me Before You Go is a story about finding yourself, letting go of yourself, and letting others in. I throughly enjoyed the romance between David and Cassidy, but I believe I enjoyed the sub-plot even more. In fact my biggest complaint about the boo is that it wasn't long enough. I wanted more of this couples back story, their romance, their sub-plot stories. I want a series that revolves around them alone because I think there is so much to explore between the two of them. If you are looking for a swoon worthy book to sit down for an hour or two with a glass of wine (or beer in my case, haha) and just relax this is a fantastic read. I will warn you that while you will walk away pleased with the story as a whole you will like me want more of these two and wish you could pick up the next booking their imaginary series. This is the first book that I have read by Harper Kincaid and it has definitely lead me to want to start one clicking on her other novels. You can just feel all the love she put into this and considering it's length I can't even imagine how much I would enjoy her full length novels. Grab this one up. This is one case where you can definitely read this as a standalone even if it is part of a I wish that you would read the whole series yes, but don't fret that you will feel as though you are missing anything, this is a perfect introduction into the series if you haven't read any of them before. After this one you'll be starting at book one.~HAPPY READING~

    Bind Me Before You Go is Harper Kincaid's addition to the Entangled Serve Series. It is a standalone, but some of the characters do overlap. I have read some of the books in that series by other authors, but this is my first read by Harper Kincaid.David Cavill works as a security expert and is a Shibari rope master at a sex club called Serve. He's asked to take one for the team and "babysit" a newbie's friend while she goes through orientation. He is totally thrown off-guard when he meets the friend, Cassidy. She's sexy as hell and their chemistry leaps off the pages! He asks her to fill out an application too-just in case- but really just wants to know if she would entertain his specialty. No use in getting worked up over nothing.Cassidy is new to New York. Her roommate talks her into going to the sex club with her since she's been approved and is itching to go, but doesn't want to go alone. Cassidy tells herself one of the reasons she came to New York is to open up more and take chances with people-a vast difference from her upbringing. Once at Serve, she feels a bit out of sorts, but then Wham!, she meets David. Sex on a stick and his voice makes her melt. She decides to fill out the application just to continue talking with him. She can feel the sparks and wants to know more, so why not?This was a pretty quick read that moved along at a fast pace. At times maybe a bit too fast. I was surprised that Cassidy would jump so quick when David didn't really back up what he was selling her. He talks of mutuality and trust a lot in this book, and asks Cassidy to trust him, but doesn't give her any back. He's got some family issues and believes he isn't good for anybody. His reasoning may be valid, but I didn't like him being so hypocritical. They decide on a two week affair under the guise of Cassidy learning what she likes and wants. It's also labeled as a BDSM book but there is only rope play involved. The scenes at Serve are very low key and not what you would expect. I liked the explanation of David's Shibari and why he likes it so much. I found it interesting that David has a playroom at home but there is really no time spent there teaching Cassidy anything other than the Shibari. I was hoping for more diverse playing since that was the premise of the affair to begin with. I did like how David took care of her and did seem totally into and in tune with her during their scenes.So would I recommend it? Yes. I enjoyed it even though it was predictable. I also think this is a great intro to kink book if you haven't read that type of book before. I am looking forward to reading other books by Harper Kincaid, especially at Serve, as she has a real knack for writing. The rope scenes she's written are very visual and I had no problem "seeing" what was taking place. Kudos!3.5 stars/3 flamesThis book was provided to me by The Jeep Diva for the express purpose of an honest review. The opinions and rating in this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated.

    First Impression: Extremely well-written with excellent characterization and a heroine I instantly liked. I love the author’s writing style and I love Cassidy’s personality. She feels real and unique.Written by Harper Kincaid, Bind Me Before You Go is the eighth book in the Serve Series by Entangled Publishing Brazen, which started with Tessa Bailey’s Owned by Fate. In this story, the heroine, Cassidy Peyton, is new to New York City and interested in experiencing new things, though she isn’t certain she’s prepared for what a place like Serve offers. David Cavill, the hero, is a sexual dominant at the club who takes an interest in Cassidy.This book has a dynamite flow, which makes the story an easy, fast-moving read. Everything about it flew for me, which shows how much effort the author put into writing it and how much enjoyment I got out of reading it. It’s a fantastic read and one of my absolute favorites from the series because of its ease and naturalness. This is a first-rate contemporary read with a heroine I could understand and connect to, and a hero I absolutely loved.Sexy, intense, and dominant, David Cavill is exactly the kind of man Cassidy Peyton needs in her life. Because he challenges her and keeps her from living in the status quo, taking her safe, boring life to the exciting, adventurous moments she dreamed of finding upon moving to New York City. And she keeps him connected in ways he hadn’t expected to ever find.One of the big things I’ve loved about this book is the chemistry between Cassidy and David. It made the scenes they shared together intriguing and fun because they were a perfect fit for each other and the honest connection between them showed in their every interaction together. I loved that David was protective and honest about his intentions with Cassidy, and that he encouraged her to play it safe and be responsible with her safety whenever possible. I also love that he was a different kind of sexual dominant because it brought new things into play into the series as a whole and made for a fascinating story for Cassidy and David.Bind Me Before You Go was a short read, but it packed a lot inside its pages, and it was one of those books I didn’t want to end. The entire time I was reading, I kept glancing at how much time I had left because I wasn’t ready for the story to be over and I wanted to savor Cassidy and David’s journey for as long as possible. I don’t know what it is about this author’s words or storytelling ability, because I haven’t read her work before, but I seriously dug what she did in this story and I absolutely cannot wait to read more of her work in the future.If you want a hot, emotionally satisfying story with in-depth characterization and a hero and heroine who are real, human, and memorable, pick up Bind Me Before You Go by Harper Kincaid. These characters and this story will draw you in and have you craving more. Highly recommend this read!4.5 Stars!

    ***A gifted copy was provided by the publisher for my honest review******What another great book in the #SERVE series. This is a book about David and Cassidy. Security expert David Cavill has a lot of secrets , secrets that he doesn’t share but then he meets Cassidy. Cassidy Peyton moves to the Big Apple to start anew and to figure out what she wants from her life, including in her relationship. Her roommate takes her to Serve one night and its like entering a whole new world. There she meets this new guy-David and it’s like he knows what’s she needs. She loves that he takes her beyond her comfort zones yet does it in such a way that makes her feel safe. She starts to discover what she wants in her life for the first time ever. She knows David is someone she is falling in love with. When it comes to David, he has his own issues about relationships so it is slow going. The path they take to deal with learning about themselves as they fall in love and deal with how this is going to change their lives. There are some emotional twists and turns. It at times will pull at your heart strings and omg, the heat in this story is WOO! I love how Cassidy takes control , instead of David. That is a change from the other stories. It was a gradual change and it was nice to see a woman take charge and make the calls. It doesn’t show David to be a wimp, but shows that he allowed her to have control, to be the one having the say. It was great! I think, though, there would have been nice to see an epilogue to this story showing how they were doing. I didn’t see that and for me, that was a letdown. I would have liked something showing how they were doing months later but that is in my opinion. Maybe the author can do a followup of them in a later story. Cassidy is a spunky lady who is sweet and kind with a beauty to her inside and out while David is an ALPHA male who has a lot on his shoulders but he cares for Cassidy. He is dominant male who is handsome yet he has a kind soul about him who is worried his secrets will ruin his life / romance so he pushes her away. He always gives so much because he feels he is owed so little. Both MC are good people who just want to find lasting love and they have in each other. The heat and passion they have given the story the right edge. **Update to review-- There was a glitch when my book downloaded and I was able to get a revised copy which did include what mine was to have the orginally. There is a epilogue and it shows Cassidy and David some months down the road after their story ended. It shows them seemingly settled and it appears everything it good between them. I do like the HEA featured because it shows the MC happy. That is good. I applaud the author for showing that because it does show how the characters are living their lives after the book ends. I wont tell you, you just have to read to find out how everyone is doing.My rating: 4.3 stars ****

    I have loved Brazen’s SERVE series since its introduction last fall with the first of Tessa Bailey’s books and continuing with Katee Robert and Joya Ryan. As the series progressed, each of these authors have brought their unique voice and have given readers books that are incredibly hot, but also informative when it comes to the BDSM lifestyle.Bind Me Before You Go is fast-paced book with characters that are honest and open about their needs and desires, but less forthcoming when it comes to feelings and events that might have stunted them emotionally. David Cavill and Cassidy Peyton don’t trust easily, but the connection that they share sets the wheels in motion for the chance to explore a relationship.I enjoyed this book on a number of levels – The relationship between Cass and David felt completely natural. I liked that they had had very adult conversations around their expectations and concerns before jumping into their relationship/arrangement. The affection that they felt for one another was clear, as was their attraction. They weren’t playing games with each other, which I think would have been counterintuitive to the story itself. Also, Harper Kincaid really did a great job of showing us the ropes in a way the both educates and entertains. (See what I did there?) I finished this book with my interest in Shibari further piqued.Bind Me Before You Go is a short book, so what we learn of the characters is story-critical. I really liked Cassidy because she had a strength that was bone-deep. It was clear why she wanted to explore this facet of her sexuality and in David; she had found the perfect partner.David was enigmatic. As a reader he took everything I thought I knew about an alpha-male and stood it on its head. As we learn about his background, he is clearly an incredibly special person, not only as a partner, but also as a friend, a son and a brother. There are moments where you want to smack him for being so stubborn, but understanding his reasons is the key to truly appreciating this man.There is an element of this story that I will not give away, but it deserves a mention, however cryptic. Harper Kincaid – Sadly, David’s family’s story will strike a chord for so many people with loved ones who struggle with mental illness. What you have done here is shine a light of what it might feel like to be the caretaker in such a case. They are on front lines and do their best to manage all that the mood disorders throw at them. Bless you for that.I get that this book or the subject matter may not be for everyone and might be dismissed. But, again, I was really impressed with how not only the story was woven, but also the unique perspective that was shared and that’s what really resonated for me personally. Count me as impressed. Enjoy this book for all of these reasons and keep an open mind. Enjoy.

    3.5 StarsMoving to New York is Cassidy Peyton’s chance for a fresh start but she certainly was not planning for Serve to be the location for that fresh start. Roped into acting as wingman (or wingwoman) for her friend and roommate, Cassidy catches the eye of David Cavill. David is on a short break from work and is in Serve to blow off some steam and he finds himself stepping in to help a friend in need. An immediate attraction blooms between Cassidy and David and Cassidy goes from an interested bystander to a member-in-waiting, with the understanding that her time with David would be limited, with a definite end date.David has family issues and secrets that do not allow for commitment to a relationship, a lesson he learned the hard way when he got ditched by his ex-girlfriend after he shared his secret with her and he vowed from that moment to keep his relationships short-term. However, fresh-faced Cassidy and her willingness to explore her sexuality with David as her teacher prove irresistible and soon the agreed time is not enough.BIND ME BEFORE YOU GO was a quick read with surprisingly complicated but likable characters. David was not the usual type of Serve Dom. His secrets are enough to make him feel out of control so his outlet to release the pressure is his rope play and he gets off on the pleasure he gives his partners. I liked that he was considerate and protective and a master of his art. Cassidy has lived her life pleasing everyone in it, especially the men and if exploring the offerings at Serve will help her discover herself, then she’s definitely all for it and I really liked her attitude.I like that even though there was that instant attraction between David and Cassidy, their story was not just about what they did in Serve. They were people with real-life issues and fears that affected their ability to enter into and maintain relationships, but keeping his secrets while demanding trust from Cassidy was a bit hypocritical in my opinion and his reaction to her discovery was a little over the top. I’m not a huge fan if insta-love and I think my only reservation about this story was the speed at which they went from agreeing to play at Serve to falling in love. In spite of that, BIND ME BEFORE YOU GO was an enjoyable read.Disclaimer: I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    His heart is bound tighter than the bondage he craves...Determined to put her past behind her, Cassidy Peyton moves to the Big Apple. But New York has a few dark secrets of its own, including Serve, an exclusive BDSM club. It's a place she isn't sure she's ready for, until she sees him watching her. Hot. Intent. Knowing. With eyes that leave her stomach tied in knots, because the loneliness he's trying to hide matches her own.Security expert David Cavill has more secrets than any man should. Secrets that forever shut down any possibility of love, marriage, or family. Yet Cassidy draws him in, an intoxicating combination of strength, candor, and sensuality that David can't resist. But as their bond deepens, Cassidy must decide if she can love a man whose heart is bound tighter than the form of bondage he craves...Review:Though it does not list it on the Goodreads site, this is part of the Serve multi-author series. This is a total stand alone and do not need to read any of the others, though I have read quite a few of them and have enjoyed them all. This is a new to me Author and I really liked her writing style and the story and characters in this book. I am not sure how many pages there were in the story, but it flew by, I finished it my lunch hour. The author did a great job of combining sexy and emotion in this story. I particularly liked that David is into shibari and thought that tied (no pun intended) the characters together in the beginning and ending of the story. Both characters know this is affair is on a time limit, but you know those emotions don't know anything about time limits. David is hiding a secret about his family that he is afraid to tell Cassidy about because of his past relationships and Cassidy has to show David that she is not like the others. When David gives up, I like that Cassidy goes and gives him a "Come to Jesus" talk and fights for him and shows that she is different from the rest. Though, he is stubborn and it takes some manipulation to get David with the program, but the ending is very satisfying.Great for when you want some quick spice in your day.3.5Stars*Received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review*

    This is seriously one of my favorite series. With each new book that comes out, the more entwined I get with Serve. At this point, I wonder if I shouldn't have a membership there! Cassidy recently moved to the city to move on with her life, to get out of her comfort zone and live a little. When her roommate and friend talks her into going to Serve with her, the last thing she expected was to come face to face with the sexiest man alive.David recently returned to the states from an overseas security mission and just wanted to unwind. He knew finding forever with a girl was not in his cards, but that doesn't mean he can't play the field. When he meets Cassidy, he knows she is different and wants nothing more than to be the one to help her let loose.Soon they are spending every moment they can together before David leaves for another mission. David helps Cassidy to begin to feel like her true self and more free then she ever has been. David finally has a partner who understands his way of binding and loves every minute of it. As their relationship progresses, the more they start to fall for each other. However, not everything goes smoothly. When David has a family crisis, he pushes Cassidy away. He doesn't want to see the disgust on her face that everyone else has once they find out the truth. He doesn't want this side of his life to ever touch her. When Cassidy realizes that David has never let her truly into his life, will she fight to be a part of his life or walk away? How many more time can she stand to be pushed aside? This was a great book about finding strength in your past and using it to strive for a better tomorrow. Cassidy and David were truly a great match for each other and you couldn't help but want them to push past the issues holding them back. I adored the ending as it put all of their issues to rest and showed a bright future. The author did a wonderful job of incorporating Serve into the book and left us all wondering what was going to happen with Leo and Allie. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that their story will be next!

    This story had a lot of potential. Unfortunately, unrealized potential sometimes is worse than no potential at all, since you are left feeling pissed because it could have been so good, but it just wasn’t.Cassidy and David meet at an exclusive BDSM club where Cassidy is just waiting for her new roommate to finish a “newbie class” but as the manager gets his eye on her friend, he ropes David into babysitting Cassidy so he can get it on with the roommate.Instant attraction, some banter exchanged and David takes Cassidy home and gives her the best orgasm of her life. But David needs to know if Cassidy is into his preferred kink which is the art of Japanese ropes, Shibari, but not in the usual Dom/sub relationship but more in a balanced interchange of power.So far so good.Well, this is where things get dicey for me. David has a family situation that seems to have made all his previous female companions run away for the hills screaming. To say he is unwilling to open up to Cassidy is an understatement, at the same time he expects Cassidy to be completely open and honest with him.Now, both characters went through difficult family situations in life, but I felt both stories could have been fleshed out more and not made into some random sentences thrown in the story.Also, their relationship never completely clicked for me. Their first “scene” together is in the club as a demonstration of the type of Shibari David does. Now, we are talking about a woman who is not in the lifestyle, they went over the bare basics, she has never been tied and suddenly she is on a stage naked being suspended with ropes? To me it was just too much too soon. I’m all for insta-love. This time? I couldn’t see it.I don’t really want to say anymore because I don’t want to ruin the story for anyone, but this book could have been great, really, really great. It’s sad that it wasn’t because with the issues it touches and the general story I know I could have loved it.*I received a complimentary copy from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review*

    Bind Me Before You Go is a sweet romance with a nice amount of kink. It's not a typical BDSM book, the hero David is not really a Dom but he is Shibari rope master. He's not looking for a power exchange relationship, but he finds creating elaborate patterns with rope on a willing partner to be therapeutic, and it helps him to feel in control of his life. I actually found this a refreshingly different take on the BDSM lifestyle, and it would be ideal for readers who don't like to read more extreme scenes. This is the first book I've read by this author, but I enjoyed this book so it definitely won't be the last.Cassidy moved to New York to create a new life for herself, but she doesn't expect to find herself in an exclusive BDSM club. But when her friend asks her to go with her on her first visit to the club, Cassidy doesn't want to let her friend down. While she's at the club she is looked after by David, and he makes it clear that he wants to see Cassidy in his ropes. He persuades her to give him two weeks to show her the pleasures he can give her, but he warns her that he isn't boyfriend material. Their relationship starts to heat up, but David's secret and lack of trust threaten to tear them apart.This is quite a short read, and I would have loved it to be a bit longer so that we could explore David and Cassidy's relationship further. Both the story and the couple's relationship move quite quickly, maybe a bit too quickly at times. I can't help but think that a demonstration in a BDSM club, where you have to be fully nude in front of a crowd, is not the ideal time to experience bondage for the first time! The scenes are hot though, I enjoyed reading them. I liked both characters, although I wanted to shout at David sometimes for demanding so much trust from Cassidy when he showed her none at all. Overall this is an enjoyable story that receives four out of five stars.I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

    Bind Me Before You Go was an enjoyable read, though it felt really short. Everything here happened fairly quickly and had a touch of "insta-feel" to it, but Cassidy and David were very likable and had amazing chemistry together, which made the suddenness of it all a bit more palatable. That's not to say it wouldn't have benefited from being longer; it definitely would have--but what was here was enjoyable nonetheless.I especially liked David's attitude about their relationship as a whole and Shabari in particular--it was more about trust and equality of both partners, which gave him a less dominant/alpha feel than some of the heroes of the series (not that the whole dominant alpha thing is bad, necessarily, but I did appreciate the difference here for this story). David's big "secret" and the reason why he doesn't believe he'll ever have a lasting relationship seemed a bit out of proportion once it's revealed--it does make more sense once he explains the background to Cassidy, at least, but once I found out what it was I pretty much had a "that's it??" reaction.But since we obviously want them to get together at the end, having it be less of a huge problem worked for that part, at least. ;)Bind Me Before You Go is book #8 in the Serve series--a few other characters from previous books show up here, but it works well as a standalone, probably in good part because it's the first series book from Ms. Kincaid. It's also my first book by the author--based on this, I'd definitely read her again, especially if a future book in this series is going to be about Leo and Allie, Cassidy's roommate :)Rating: 3 1/2 stars / BI received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Bind Me Before You Go by Harper Kincaid was a great book. I loved these characters. David likes to tie his partners up, but not all are too keen. He also has a dark family secret, and once we find out what it is, it’s not as bad as he thinks, but to David, it’s been a heavy burden and one he wasn’t willing to share again, (not after his previous fiancée told him that his family were a bunch of freaks!) so he guards his heart, willing only to share his time In between his security jobs. He doesn’t want to fall in love, until he meets Cassidy…… Cassidy moved to New York for a new start, her friend asks if she would come with her to a club, intrigued, Cassidy finds herself in a different type of club. Meeting David intrigues Cass greatly, they connect almost instantly, both are wary, but Cassidy wants to explore this new world, and wants David to guide her. The story is intense and drops us into the world of ropes and pulleys pretty quick, but you get that between them, their attraction to each other is almost electric. David makes Cassidy aware that this is only short term, but he doesn’t count on his heart taking a different turn. And when Cassidy meets his family, he expects her to turn tail and run for the hills. The rest of the characters are all important, there is nothing worse, than reading a book full of people who really didn’t need to be there. Harper Kincaid did an amazing job of bringing this story to life, it’s very detailed and full of passion. If you don’t like your books too hot, then I’d leave this on the shelf, but if you are looking for something a little different, then please, pick this one, I loved it, and I’m off to look for more by the same author.

    This book is essentially about two survivors; one who has managed to break free of their binds and one that is still trapped…but by their own making.Cassidy has just moved to New York from Florida, to become a Social Worker, but also to escape the drudgery that she endured all of her life. Her roommate is the outgoing Allie, whom drags her to a BDSM club after a hellish 24 hour shift, just as an introduction…but what she found was a man she can open up to, but one who also told her up front that he is not boyfriend material.David lives a life in cycles, from amazing to purgatory and back again. But he has one outlet and that is Serve, the BDSM club where he can practice the art of Shibari (Japanese rope bondage). After a failed engagement, David knows that he can never have a normal life, that his family’s issues will always stop him from having a meaningful relationship. Then he met Cassidy and he had to of the best weeks of his life. But as always, his family life comes back and destroys that and he sends Cassidy away. And you are left wondering if he will wake and realize what he is letting go.I was super excited to read another Harper Kincaid book, and I am truly grateful that I did, as her wring just sucks you into this book and doesn’t let you go. The story was smooth and I just fell in love with the characters.As someone who married into a family with mental illness (specifically the one that is mentioned), I have to say that the Harper hit the nail on the head with the situations that happen with the families who has a member with mental illness. The cycles and the outbursts are spot on.This book is amazing! So I give it 10 out of 10! The book is just divine and you are left wanting more!

This is one novel that you would not want to miss out on!This novel is one of the hottest, sexiest and most emotional novel I have ever read!I don’t know if David Cavill is indeed human or a god because he takes the whole hot-alpha male to a whole new level! He’s so sweet, so patient, and he always puts Cassidy first before his own needs. Yet, he can make panties literally dissipate with just his words!Cassidy Peyton, also the one in question whose panties have literally dissipated, is so strong. So, so, so strong and she refuse to give up or back down from anything! What she went through, others couldn’t.Which is why she is the perfect person for David Cavill! She wouldn’t run from his secrets but, he’s too chivalrous and because of that, my heart broke while I was reading this.When you read this, especially during Cassidy and David’s first scene, you can almost feel yourself in Cass’s shoes and all the feelings just amplify from there!Bind Me Before You Go is a beautiful novel. Sweet and beautiful, yet sexy at the same time!(I do wish there were more scenes of SERVE! Yes, the BDSM club!)Highly recommended for all readers!*Thank you to Entangled Publishing (Brazen) for providing me with an eARC in exchange for a honest review.

    An easy afternoon read that is pure fantasy and sensual excitement, BIND ME BEFORE YOU GO is the eighth installment in the Serve series. And also the shortest. While this makes for a quick read on a lazy Saturday afternoon, the shortness of the novel(ella?) means that our hero and heroine – David and Cassidy – didn’t really get a chance to fully develop and shine. I would have liked to see more exploration of their backstories and how their past relates to their personalities and present desires.Regardless, this novel was still good. David and Cassidy explore their desires together in the safe environment of the Serve BDSM club. Though the novel does involve BDSM, it is light and instead focuses more on the emotional connection between David and Cassidy which in turns plays into their club scenes together. Theirs is a student/teacher relationship as David teaches Cassidy about the intricacies and art of Shibari, a form of Japanese rope bondage. David is very considerate of Cassidy, both physically and emotionally, which is precisely what sweet, people-pleasing Cassidy needed.The plot was a little rushed and the couple’s love of the “insta-” variety, but I did enjoy the book and would pick up another by this author in the future.Originally posted at Plot Twist Reviews [dot] ComI received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Every time I think I have walked away from Serve another one opens the door again. Once you enter you will find yourself coming back again and again for another look and experience through characters that take you there. Not always by the same author you get a different flavor that way. Here we meet a girl who has come to leave her past where it belongs and goes to a club with her friend who has applied, that one that I have come to love Serve. It is not just any club but one that fulfills many fantasies, also allowing those to pursue their lifestyle. Cassidy sits but is watched, and also was asked to watch over her, that David has no problem doing so. He also has his share of secrets which in his mind leaves no room for love or marriage especially since was burned already by the mere possibility of it. They begin simple but soon realize that can't get enough of each other that is once he goes back when she does not return his call. When immersed in each other the heat burns so well. Be privy to their building relationship but in that witness the turn of events that send David turning the wrong corner. Alot of groveling will have to be in order here if neither are to lose their perfect fit. The finesse and eloquence will shine through thanks to this author's writing ability to give one delicious return and to reader's delight matches made with love. Received a copy for a honest review.

    As a favor to her roommate, Allie, Cassidy agrees to go with her to Serve, a local BDSM club. When Allie hooks up with the manager, his friend David agrees to "babysit" Cassidy. The attraction is immediate on both sides. Cassidy is hot, quirky, and very snarky and sarcastic. David is immediately smitten. David is all alpha, hot, and sexy, but also protective and cautious. Within a few hours of meeting Cassidy and David are back at Cassidy's place and David is all about pleasing Cassidy. He then explains that he is into Shibari and can only be with her for 2 weeks. He's not looking for anything long term.After Cassidy agrees to David's terms, David slowly introduces Cassidy to BDSM and shibari. But both are careful to make sure that they don't fall. Of course, that doesn't happen. Cassidy falls for David. David doesn't want that. He's been burnt in the past because of family issues and he's afraid for anyone to see his family. He won't open up. This book was fast paced and a quick, easy Summer read. At times it was almost too fast paced. We met Cassidy and David and they were definitely developed, but the relationship seemed a little fast. Overall though I really liked all the characters, the story, and the writing. I haven't read any other books in the Serve series or any other Harper Kincaid books, but I definitely will be looking for more of both. I give Bind Me Before You Go 3.5 STARS!

    Cassidy is a social worker who is tuned into everyones feelings except her own. She has just learned that she has never ever had any real relationships. Whenever she gets involved with someone she turns into the kind of person they want. She doesn't leave any room to be herself and now she is done with that. She just wants to know what she wants, what she desires. When her roommate drags her to Serve she's not sure if that is what she needs. Until she meets DavidDavid is a loner. He has secrets that have destroyed all his past relationships and he's not willing to go through that heartbreak again. But Serve is the one place he can get what he needs and he has his sights set on Cassidy. But Cassidy has had enough of people keeping her at arms length, she's tired of exposing herself but not being allowed to see the nitty gritty of her partner and she wants in to David's life. In fact she is probably the only one qualified enough to understand and help him, if only he'd let her in. Bind Me Before You Go may be part a BDSM series but it is definitely not hardcore. In fact it is very sweet love story and the BDSM scenes are mild and very romantic. And with each book written by a different author, one gets a variety of perspectives into the kind of place that Serve is. I think I will be following up on the previous titles.ARC provided in exchange for an honest review

    Marie's Tempting Reads (Netgalley) eARC Review:Bind Me Before You Go happens to be the first book that I have read ever, by Harper Kincaid. I am happy to say that after finishing this book, it will most definitely NOT be my last! The first thing I liked about this book was the cover. Its sensual and sexy and the colors blend beautifully with the title. The second thing was the blurb. It intrigued me and had me ever so curious and had me anticipating the story. Once I started it, I had a heck of a time putting it down. I loved the style of writing and the characters as well as the plot. The sexual tension between Cassidy and David was simmering from the moment they first met. The other thing that I enjoyed about the book was the BDSM. Anyone who knows me knows that I enjoy a romance featuring those delicious BDSM elements. I thoroughly enjoyed the play in the story and found myself finishing the book before I even realized it. Nothing beats a good romance like a romance with some BDSM! Harper Kincaid brought us readers the perfect balance of dominance and love. I give Bind Me Before You Go an AMAZING FOUR SHOOTING STARS! Its mouth watering good with sweet seduction and dark temptation. It almost reminds me of dark chocolate, completely yummy!

    Fantastic!!! Loved!!!! Go one click because you do not want to miss this book!!! It’s so good!!!Cass is a small town girl. She’s innocent but has the desire for more with a man - she’s just not had good luck. She’s fine working and enjoying her eReader and well….it’s been enough. But her new roommate has other plans. She wants her out and in a club……a BDSM club. Under the spell of YouHaveToComeWithMeIDon’tWantToGoAlone guilt Cass agrees. Since she’s not even put in an application she can’t go beyond the bar. But her friend has a guy, Leo that wants her so he gets David to come sit with her and keep her company. Wow! Was that the best thing that has ever happened to Cass? YES!!!! He’s everything she’s ever wanted but more importantly he’s everything she’s ever needed.But his needs…..yes Cass is what he needs too. But he’s too guarded and hurt by past girlfriends to give Cass a chance. Will he open up to her after all? Will he trust that not every woman will leave him? Quite frankly, the other women just weren’t good enough for David because his secret isn’t something you run from. Not when you truly love someone. Harper is fantastic!!! This is a must read!!! The characters are just so likable but more than they are HOT! Like chemistry HOT!!!Highly Recommend!!!!
