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?

First off, it was slow. So hard to get into. But I persevered just for you guys. Actually I did it just because I thought it would get better... and it had some good parts....but that's being generous. Plus I mean, the idea of it was kinda weird, but kinky in a sense. Let me back track a bit.
My first initial thought when Serena and Gustav meet and she went on and on about how much he looked like a vampire was.. hmm didn't know I requested a vampire kink sex book, but interesting. Nope. Didn't happen.
Anyways, little Serena (again a very sexually inexperience girl) meets Gustav (again a very very rich asshole of a man). After their meeting, Serena forgets her camera with him (which being as that's how she makes her money is pretty stupid of her). Gustav being a nice gentlemen, goes through all the pictures and offers her the chance of a lifetime. He will promote her photography in exchange for her complete servitude. At least until the end of the year or until her last photo sells. Like a sex slave? Interesting. To make sure its legit he gives her a bracelet... oh wait... no a chain. They are to be bonded. How nice. That won't get in the way at all. I mean, how would she shower? Change? Move around furniture without getting tangled. No wonder why she was bitchy at times.
See it seems like it has potential. First off, she sucks at following instructions. And he is a pompous ass. I mean, what is it with these rich guys having an emotional span of a teaspoon (highfve HP reference). Like they are so adamant of not letting anyone in, yet think its completely appropriate to go though someones apartment, snoop through their things, do a security check.... yup. normal.
I keep getting off track. All is well...I just didn't like it. And I won't bore you with a book that just kept blabbing on. The sex scenes weren't even worth it.
There are 2 more books in this series, and I don't think I will be wasting my time reading them. I don't even remember how it ended.
