Synopsis:

 

Bound by passion, she was powerless to resist.

 

One dark evening in London, photographer Serena Folkes is indulging her impulsive side with a night-time shoot. But someone is watching her – mysterious entrepreneur Gustav Levi. Serena doesn’t know it yet, but this handsome stranger will change her life forever…

 

Serena is fascinated by Gustav, the enigmatic owner of the Levi Gallery, and she soon feels an irresistible pull of attraction. The interest is mutual, and Gustav promises to launch Serena’s photographic career at his gallery, but only if Serena agrees to become his exclusive companion.

 

To mark their agreement, Gustav gives Serena a bracelet to wear at all times. Attached to it is a silver chain of which he is the keeper. With the chain Gustav controls Serena physically and symbolically – a sign that she is under his power.

 

As their passionate relationship intensifies, Gustav’s hold on the silver chain grows stronger. But will Gustav’s dark past tear them apart?

 

An erotic romance novel perfect for fans of 50 Shades of Grey and Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series. The Silver Chain is the first in the sexy, passionate and addictive Unbreakable Trilogy by Primula Bond.

 

 

 

 

My thoughts:

 

Ok, my first thought about this book was the English language has absolutely been mastered by Primula Bond. The plot is great, but the writing is phenomenal. If I ever felt myself not drawn to something Primula Bond is able to weave her magic and make me come back to what is important, her writing.

 

I loved how the two main characters met. It was so perfect. But sadly, perfection afterwards is a different story. It didn’t resonate with me how they made their contract. Maybe it was his tone, something about Gustav’s character that just didn’t work for me. He seems so aloof. Not to say that I didn’t absolutely enjoy this, because I did, but I wanted a little more from him.

 

Now, tell me I can’t escort you somewhere Serena. You look a bit, well, undone. Disheveled? No, that’s not the right word. At sixes and sevens. Knackered. Who wouldn’t be? This can be an exhausting old town. How about allowing me to buy you a drink if you think you can trust me?

 

Serena, however, I absolutely adore. She’s a bit crazy and crass but absolutely lovely. And has some issues with holding her tongue!

 

“Another apology, even if it is in Latin! “I mutter. “Why can’t you just act like a normal person for once in a blue moon?”

 

I think her normal speech, instead of the gaudy, know it all speech of Gustav, really brings feeling to the story. And there is also the sexiness of this story… loads of it! They don’t know one another very well before Gustav is showing Serena what he wants. And he has a really good imagination! Definitely not something for the younger adults!

 

All in all, a really good, entertaining read. I love the writing and will read another of Primula Bond’s books in an instance!
