Will the doors of The Den close forever?
When the lives and friendships of The Den owners are thrown into chaos, Noah Bakker steps
in to deal with the fallout. He hasn't had a sub or participated in a Scene since tragedy changed
his life four years ago. But as an investor in the exclusive BDSM club, he can't walk away from
the lifestyle completely. As he works to keep the club running, he finds himself drawn to Liv
Delcour, the seemingly naïve sister of one of the other owners.
Liv didn't know about the naughty things her friends were up to behind closed doors, but when
their secrets become headline news, she's more curious than shocked. As she works with Noah
to keep the media at bay, she finds that his dominant strength is more than a little arousing.
Soon they're exploring their mutual desires in the most wicked ways.
Liv isn't sure if she can completely submit to Noah the way she thinks he wants her to—and
Noah isn't sure he can withstand the pain of falling in love…
New to the Den? Start at the beginning with Bonds of Trust.
My Review 
 4 out of 5 stars
I have always enjoyed the Wicked Play series, so, I was excited to read this book.
Lynda Aicher has really took it up a notch in Shattered Bonds. Most of the other books in this series are surrounded by The Den and the BDSM lifestyle itself. So, naturally that is what I was expecting when I started reading this book. However, I was in for a surprise.
If you are new to this series I highly recommend you start at the beginning. I missed two of the books, but I wasn't really lost. I loved seeing all of the characters from the other books. The fact that they are more than friends, they are family really came out in this book. I really loved that the author showed us the love and the caring that the characters had for each other.
I really loved seeing Liv and Noah together. Liv is my favorite character out of all of the books. She was a complete sweetie, and she was perfect for Noah. She was a rock through out the entire book, and most importantly she was a rock for Noah.
Over all I really enjoyed this book, and I think this was a perfect ending to the series. I can't wait to see what Lynda Aicher comes up with next. I am sure it will be good. I don't want to give away any spoilers about this book, so I highly recommend you read this for yourself.
“Over here!”

“Back up. Let ’em through!”


The piercing ring of a siren squealed through the air to join the ongoing choir, and cut off the frantic calls before it faded into the distance. An abundance of blue and red lights peppered the cold night with their universal signal for trouble under the blinding spotlights erected around the crash site.

“This way!”

“I need the clamps!”

Chaos surged around Noah as he crouched next to a semiconscious Deklan, who was laid out on a backboard on the edge of the scene. The stench of blood, gas and coolant clouded the area and rode tandem with shouts from the firemen and the medical-filled jargon of the paramedics.

“What the fuck happened?”

He leaned in to catch the slurred words that tumbled from Deklan. Blood leaked through the cloth he held to the man’s head, where a good two-inch gash ran beneath his short hair. He made another scan of the accident and swallowed. His stomach cramped and heaved in a threat to empty itself.

“Stay still.” He braced his free hand on Deklan’s shoulder when the man tried to get up. The first responders had secured Deklan’s neck in a brace, did an injury assessment, then accepted Noah’s offer to stay with Deklan so they could get to the rest of the victims.

“Fuck you,” Deklan mumbled, grimaced and dropped back down. His face was bleach white, eyes hazy with pain and worry. “I need to get to Kendra.”

The desperate edge of panic in his friend’s voice had Noah clearing his throat. “I know.” Shit. He wiped a hand over his mouth and cringed. Too much blood.

Lynda Aicher has always loved to read. It’s a simple fact that has been true since she discovered the words of Judy Blume at the age of ten. After years of weekly travel as a consultant implementing computer software into global companies, she ended her nomadic lifestyle to raise her two children. Now, her imagination is her only limitation on where she can go and her writing lets her escape from the daily duties of being a mom, wife, chauffer, scheduler, cook, teacher, volunteer, cleaner and mediator. If writing wasn’t a priority, it wouldn’t get done.
