DNF Review: Bound to Submit by Natasha Moore
Mason’s dark good looks and dominating personality stirred up Kelly’s forbidden fantasies, frightening her so much that she broke up with him. When she agrees to help out at the community haunted house, she never expects to be tied to a bed, playing damsel in distress to Mason’s masked, whip-wielding villain.
Mason knows Kelly is fighting her sexual needs and he hopes that a few hours of playing out her fantasies with him will prove it to her. Bound and under his control, she can’t run away from him this time.

Every once in a great while, I like reading shorter books. Not only does it help me to reach my Goodreads goal, but it's also a perfect solution for when I finish a book and don't want to jump into another one right away. I was scrolling through my Kindle the other day, wanting something short to read, and saw Bound to Submit. I had been wanting to get back into reading erotica again, so I thought it sounded like the perfect book to read. Unfortunately, I hated it. I ended up dnf'ing it at fifty-seven percent.
I felt bad for dnf'ing such a short book, but I just couldn't take it anymore. The plot was boring. There was absolutely nothing happening. I didn't think a fiction book about learning BDSM in public could be boring, but the author proved me wrong. I found myself skimming through just to get to the sex scenes, which I had hoped would improve the book. I was wrong. You would think that it would have very descriptive, exciting, sex scenes being an erotica short story. However, it didn't. I think I've read more descriptive, detailed sex scenes in young adult and new adult books. Finally, I just couldn't force myself to read any more of the story.
Bound to Submit was such a huge disappointment. It got to the point where I couldn't even finish it, which I hate doing with smaller books. Nothing exciting happened in the book. I don't think I will be picking up any of the author's other books either, which is unfortunate because she's written a lot of them. I just didn't like the boring, bland writing style at all.
I give Bound to Submit: 1/5.

I received this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review.
