Bayou Bound #2
by Sidney Bristol
She’s the woman he sent away.
Lisette wouldn’t be back in New Orleans if she didn’t need protection—and who better to turn to than her ex-boyfriend turned Detective? She’s got a closet full of secrets that include a stalker ex and a kinky past. She vows to not dream about Mathieu…much. If only he were a Dominant, one who would not just flog her into bliss, but love her as well. A girl can dream, can’t she?
He was her first love.
Mathieu wants nothing to do with another damsel in distress, but he can’t say no when the little blonde woman walks back into his life with proof her ex is big trouble. He’ll give her a place to sleep, but nothing more. His heart is locked up tight. Except, Lisette uncovers his past in the BDSM world and she’s never backed down from a challenge. He can handle her, can’t he?
Lisette and Mathieu embark on a relationship that is strictly about sexual gratification, but evolves into more. When the bodies align, the hearts entwine. Except their rekindled flame is in danger. Lisette’s ex has found his prey, and he’s not afraid of taking a life.
Contains a BONUS short story, Picture Her Completed.
I really enjoyed this sexy romance by the wonderful Sidney Bristol. This is book 2 in the Bayou Bound series but can be read as a standalone (there are appearances of characters from the first book but it does not need to be read to enjoy and understand this one). Mathieu is a detective in New Orleans who is recovering from divorce and does not want another damsel in distress (his wife was characterized as this). His sister asks for his help in protecting a woman from her ex-boyfriend and he reluctantly agrees when that woman is the "one he sent away". Lisette is being stalked and terrorized by her ex-boyfriend and returns to her home town to hide and get protection from another ex-boyfriend. This sexy and suspenseful story grabbed my attention from page one. This is a well written and emotional story of a woman attempting to reconnect with herself and her past. The building of Mathieu's and Lisette's relationship was beautifully told as both of these characters had pasts that they needed to resolve in order for them to build a future together. I highly recommend this wonderful yet nail-biting romantic story to readers. Warning: this book does feature kinky characters and BDSM elements, so have a glass of ice-cold water nearby! ~Booklover Sue
