Security Binds Her is a dark read by Jennifer Bene. Ms. Bene has delivered a book that is well-written. This book is horrifying, but at the same time, like a train crash, you can't look away. I had to keep reading. Thalia was kidnapped leaving work one night. Her kidnapper wants to train her to the BDSM lifestyle because she will be auctioned off. Basically, it's a story of human trafficking. There's plenty of drama, suspense and lots of sex in this book. There is also rape and torture in this story, so it's not for everyone. This isn't what I was expecting, and I found it disturbing. While I can't rate this book at 5 stars, I also can't rate it at 1 or 2 just because of my personal preference. Security Binds Her is book 1 of the Thalia Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete story, not a cliff-hanger. Thalia's story does continue in other books though, so it's not her whole story.
