Erryn reviews ‘Grant (Bound and Controlled Book 3)’ by Shaw Montgomery. This book was released by the author on August 16, 2017, and is 138 pgs long. The audiobook version of this story was narrated by Kenneth Obi.  It was released on March 28, 2018, and is 4 hrs and 39 mins long. A copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.

Why I read this book:  I have listened to all the books in the series so far and I couldn’t wait to jump on this one.


Grant had found his perfect man…wrapped in silk and lace.

Grant had always loved more feminine men. A sexy guy in lingerie just did it for him. But when you looked more like a bouncer than an insurance agent, the pretty guys ran for the hills. Carter seemed different, though. When he looked at Grant, he saw the real man underneath the tattoos and muscles. Could Grant make him understand that he liked Carter just the way he was, or would Carter’s doubts keep them apart?

Carter had found his perfect man…sweet, sexy, and built like a tank.

Grant didn’t seem to mind Carter’s more feminine look, but was he too good to be true? One bad date after another had left Carter gun-shy. Now, he had Mr. Right standing at his doorway. Did he have the courage to be himself and let Grant in, or would his fears keep them apart?

 

Story Contains: M/m sexual content, BDSM elements, gender-fluid dressing, spanking, and orgasm denial.

The Bound & Controlled series follows four brothers, who are each involved in the BDSM lifestyle in some way, as they look for love. Each book features a different brother, but the books are best enjoyed in order. The books are not taboo in nature.

Book 1: Garrett

Book 2: Brent

Book 3: Grant

Book 4: Bryce

Erryn’s Review:

Carter is a unique soul.  He doesn’t quite fit into the traditional world.  He’s gay – which is okay because his friends and neighbours are supportive – but he has a secret he keeps from the world.  Carter’s best friend, Wyatt, has recently fallen in love with Garrett, and he wants everyone else to be as happy as he is.  So, when Garrett’s brother, Grant, goes from texting to asking Carter out, Carter isn’t sure where this might lead.  Grant knows Carter’s secret, but does that mean he’s okay with Carter’s true nature?

I adore Carter.  I see and understand his struggle to be true to himself while surviving in the real world—the one beyond the protective bubble of Wyatt’s shop where Carter works plus their neighbours’ environs.  They are nosy neighbours, to be sure, but neighbours in their later years who accept Carter for who he is and who also want him to be happy.  Even their gossiping is gentle and harmless.  These secondary characters brought humour and sweetness to the story.

My adoration carried through to Grant.  He’s built, gorgeous, and smart.  He also sees the real Carter and accepts him.  It takes Carter a long time to believe in Grant’s affection, but Grant’s insistence on Carter wearing the clothes he loves goes a long way.

There is a BDSM component to the book, fitting it in nicely with the series.  Is it realistic to have four brothers, all gay, and all into BDSM?  Probably not, but it does make for fun times and a wildly supportive environment.

Grant and Carter are perfect for each other.  As this is a Shaw Montgomery romance, they get their happy ending.  And I’m glad I’ve got ‘Bryce’ cued up in my library.

Kenneth Obi is the perfect narrator for this book.  He can carry Carter’s slightly effeminate tone with its light southern drawl, Grant’s deep and sexy voice, as well as the various older ladies in the story, with aplomb.  He has done a great job with this series.

I am now pressing ‘play’ on ‘Bryce’.

Erryn’s Rating:

9/10 Points of Gold (100% Recommended) – Compares to 4.5/5 Stars

Shaw Montgomery loves reading, traveling, and family. While not necessarily in that order, they all rank pretty close. Shaw has lived all over the United States and even Germany. While the coast of North Carolina is a favorite place Shaw currently lives in the Western United States. Current wish list places to travel to are Australia, Italy, and Scotland. 

When Shaw wants to write about things that are a little more taboo (or sometimes a lot more taboo), Shaw writes under the name M.A. Innes. If you like M/m content that is sweet and naughty check out Shaw’s other books. 

Shaw reads an eclectic mix of genres; everything from Mystery and Sci-Fi Space Westerns, to traditional Romance and all kinds of Erotica. Currently the stories in Shaw’s head are femdom romance but there are some M/M and Sci-Fi/Fantasy that can’t wait to come out as well.

Note – there is a prequel of the series, found for $1.00 on Amazon: The Owners
