Publisher's Summary

Adorably naive and shockingly brilliant Harrison Lessardi only needs two things in life: his pet iguana, Steve, and his undying love of science. That is until he witnesses his best friend lay eggs, and a third must-have strolls into his apartment - the sardonic and mischievous Everard Drake. 

Everard Drake, celebrated doctor of the tremendously wealthy Drake family, has one goal in mind when he arrives at the scene of his youngest brother’s latest disaster: incinerate Harrison Lessardi. Unfortunately for Everard, the moment he spots Harry, incineration becomes an impossibility - he must have the gorgeous beta as his own, even if it means holding him captive on his estate.

But something else lurks behind Everard’s interest in Harry - something that tugs at Everard’s soul in impossible ways, and that will send Everard and Harry down a rabbit hole of discovery that will change the world as they know it. 

An alpha and a beta can’t share a bond. 

Can they? 

Bond is a 78,000 word steamy omegaverse mpreg-ish romance that will leave you in stitches. It contains an unexpectedly consensual kidnapping, giant magical lizards, an iguana with a full wardrobe named Steve, never-ending nicknames, and a HEA that may, or may not involve mosquito nets. For maximum enjoyment, Bond is best heard following the events of Clutch.

Harry is very entertaining.

Bond was a lot of fun to listen to. The narrator Michael Ferraiuolo performs fun and quirky characters so wonderfully well. He is basically the reason I decided to give this series a chance, I hadn't read an Mpreg book/series before but I knew he would make it fun to listen to. Harry was hilarious in the first book, so I knew this would be a good listen. Everard has NO IDEA what he has gotten himself into when he kidnaps Harry and Steve. Harry is so quirky, and very enthusiastic about being kidnapped by a dragon. He has such a thirst for knowledge and wants to know everything. The storyline runs concurrently to the first book in the series, so there is a familiarity for the reader/listener already to some events occurring in Bond. Bond is low on drama and high on fun.

Best narrative performance ever!

Possibly the weirdest book I’ve ever read, but one of the most entertaining & hilarious. In a world where some men can get pregnant, dragon and human fall in love! Should you be worried when all the endearing names a dragon calls you are food-related, my little lamb chop? Fantastically fun narration by Michael Ferraiuolo!

My favorite book in the series. Great narration!

I read the Forbidden Desires Series on kindle unlimited and this is by far my favorite book. Harry and Everard are an adorable couple. Harry is oblivious, nerdy, and utterly enthralled by herpetology, Steve (his iguana), and all things dragons. Everard is in a constant state of bemused attraction with the earnest little beta. I read & listened to the first book and I could not wait to hear Harry's love story. Michael Ferraiuolo does an excellent job across both books keeping all the characters consistent. Totally worth a credit!

A delightful and magical audiobook

If you want to listen a humorous and playful audiobook that will keep you engaged by it's fascinating plotline and world building, it's quirky and charismatic main and secondary characters and hot AF and smutty sexy times , BOND is the story for you. I read BOND when it first came out as an Ebook and loved it. Now , listening to it have me , loving it even more. Michael Ferraiuolo was utterly perfection in his narration. Bond is book two in the Forbidden Desires series and it's the story of Harry and Everard . This book isn't a standalone , you need to listen to Clutch , book one in order to understand and truly enjoy this brilliant series. Full disclosure, I found myself giggling and snorting like a 🐖 piggy loon while listening to this audiobook . There is nothing better than listening to a tale about a sweet, talkative and nerdy Herpetology scholar , gorgeous Amethyst Dragons 🐉, a well dressed Iguana, Byzantium color Dragon's whelps , one of the kind Orchid and irradesan Opal Dragon's eggs to help you escape reality, laugh and relax. A credit happily and well well spent.

Harry is such an adorable nerd

I read all the ebooks of this series as they came out, but listening to the audio is making me love them even more! Harry's voice and personality shine through so perfectly, and Everard is just as posh and sophisticated as I imagined. This narrator expresses such a wide range of emotions for each character and makes the book even more entertaining. Everything Everard and Harry were experiencing felt so real, and the sex scenes were absolutely incredible. I never thought I would be so captivated by someone being covered in dragon fire. And of course, all the inventive food-themed nicknames were adorable!

I didn’t love this as much as the first...

While I was initially excited to see that these two would get their love story as I had predicted in Clutch, this one fell kinda flat for me overall. It did have all the same elements that I loved from Clutch, but this one seemed to drag on and on. Partly because it covered a lot of the same scenes as Clutch, just from Harry and Everard’s point of view. It felt redundant, I guess. Whereas I could see myself listening to Clutch over and over again, I don’t think I could do that with this one. The angst was kicked up a notch and that’s not necessarily something I’m a fan of. I probably won’t continue with the third book as that one seems even more angst-ridden and I’m not a fan of that. It’s not a bad thing, if that’s your jam, it’s just not for me. I also didn’t feel the love for Geoffrey and don’t have much of a desire to see how his story plays out as I did with Everard (not to mention, my overall dislike of M/M/M stories). Michael Ferraiuolo’s narration was spot on, just like the first. I would have maybe preferred Harry’s voice to be a little less nasally and that might be part of why I felt the book drug on and on—8 hours of Harry’s voice was hard on the ears. AND, while I’m being nit picky—the food endearments, while humorous at first, got old quickly.

Great Series

I received an ARC of this audio for my honest review. This book is about Harry and Everard. I really enjoyed Harry in the first book and was glad he got to find his own dragon. Everard was going to get rid of Harry as he knows too much about their species. He winds up falling for him and they have their only clutch of 1. This story had me laughing with all the questions that Harry had and the nicknames that Ev had for Harry. Can't wait to listen to the next book in this series.

Fantastic!!

Words can't express how much I loved this one in audio! Piper Scott and Virginia Kelly are two of my favorite authors and did a lovely job with this one, the second in the Forbidden Desires series. Michael Ferraiuolo is a master narrator and is the perfect choice for this series!

Baby dragons!

I so adore this entire series! Dragons and mates and baby dragons all over the place. Harry is absolutely adorkable and his chatter made me lol or snort coffee more than once. Everard is so proper and Harry shakes that up in a wonderful way. And Michael is definitely one if the best audiobook narrators out there hands down.

LOVE Ev and Henry!!

This audiobook... I fell in love with Henry. He’s so sweet, innocent and naive. In walks Everard Drake and everything changes for this lovable geek and his lizard Steve. Henry is obsessed with dragons so being kidnapped by Everard is not that bad of a hardship. So much happens in this book. Small amount of angst, some smokin hot dragons and some hilarious nicknames. Michael Ferraiuolo does an amazing job bringing the Drakes and company alive. Especially when saying “mine”. Piper and Virginia have written a series that keeps me coming back!

- 4 to 4.25 stars -

This would be my second time reading/listening to this book. I would say this is a pretty good book with little angst and conflict. A lot of my questions I had from the previous book had been answered in this book. *Spoilers* I think my favorite part in the whole book was the moment Everard's father asked Everard why the iguana was dressed as a shark. It was just so funny and the way the narrator said it made it even more hilarious. Harry is a very interesting character with the way he can go on and on about different things, but he also has a very big heart for the things and people he loves. He is also very smart and I'm honestly surprised that no one else had figured out what he did about dragons. I think he may be my favorite character so far with how interesting and loveable he is. For some reason I had thought that after Harry had told his discovery about the Disgraces actually being dragons, that Everard's father or Everard would apologize on behalf of all the dragons for how Harry's father was treated. But that did not happen. Hopefully Harry's discovery will cause a change in how the Disgraces and the Pedigree are treated. I am a bit surprised that Everard isn't exactly close to his father. Or at least his father doesn't seem to be very close or very paternal towards his own children. It had been mentioned that his father gets worried about Alistair, but I think it's the same worry all of Alistar's brothers have. It was made even more obvious that Everard's father is missing something paternal or even the knowledge of how to love someone when you look at the scene when Darwin hatches. He was rather critical with stating how small Darwin was but basically congratulated Everard. Besides that, his behavior was very....materialistic or political or cold or standoffish. I can't come up with the right word for it. When comparing his reaction to Harry's parents reaction to Darwin, Harry's parents are lot warmer, loving, and will probably be very close to Darwin compared to how Everard's father acted. I hope we will see character development with the leader of the Drake clan since he has his own book, but I do find it sad that it might mean he won't fix his relationship with his children by showing fondness or any other sort of warmth since they are all adults with families of their own. But who knows. Everard was able to start being a bit kinder to other people so maybe his father will learn something in his book as well. I'm think his standoffish behavior towards his children is probably due to the fact that the mother of his children was not his true mate and he probably had betas take care if his children instead. It also could be because he is the leader of the clan and being business like is the only thing he knows how to be. I also wished Everard could have deepened his bond with Alistair. In book 1, Alistair mentioned that he was closest to Everard out of all his brothers, but I wish we could have been shown some brotherly love without name calling or being judgemental, which Everard seems to have a tendency of doing. There was actually hardly any mention of Alistair throughout the whole book since some of the events overlapped with book 1 and Everard was busy with research and Harry. I am interested in what order they were hatched in as Sebastian is the oldest, I'm guessing Everard is the second oldest. Alistair was mentioned to almost be a dud and hatched a few minutes after Everard since I think Everard liked to gloat about being older or something in book 1, so Alistair might be the third oldest. Geoffrey was called little brother by Everard so he is also younger than Everard as well. For some reason I figured Alistair would be the youngest since his egg was almost a dud, which I took it as it meant that his egg took the longest to hatch, but who knows what they meant by that. I did find it funny that people kept calling Everard and then his son pink and then Everard was always insulted by it and stating that he was Byzantine and Darwin was Orchid, and clearly not pink, when in reality they really do have pink scales and he even stated it to himself. Another thing is that I am hoping that Everard will find out about Geoffrey's love interest and the reason as to why Geoffrey was so upset and not himself. The reason as to why I want him to be one of the first to discover it out of the brothers is because I think he would actually be supportive about it with everything he went through with Harry. And he does seem to genuinely care about his brothers despite everything he has said about them. I honestly don't know if they are exactly close or if any of the brothers are really close, but I hope there can be some brotherly love between some of them. I don't know if a relationship between two alphas - and especially between two dragons from the Amethyst and the Topaz clans - is particularly forbidden or unheard of, but I hope someone can be supportive of them. I know Everard had said to Harry that two alpha dragons wouldn't fall in love or be together, but he didn't elaborate on it. I would imagine that Geoffrey and Ian's relationship wouldn't be looked kindly upon, but I'm not sure exactly why that would be. It seems to be the dragons main goal is to have as many children as possible, and since two alphas in a relationship won't result in a clutch, then that might be a reason as to why it might be frowned upon. But other than that, I can't think of any other reason why other dragons would be against it. But there clearly has be some reason as why they would hide their relationship since no one else knows about it. Everard did seem to notice something since Ian kept staring at Geoffrey during the hatching and seemed really unhappy, but I don't think he really put two and two together to realize what exactly was going on. Hopefully their book won't be too stressful and I do wonder if two alphas can have a mate bond. I do wonder what it is with Everard and names. He has nicknames for Nate that relate to animals, he calls Harry all kinds of food nicknames along with his full name and shortened version of his name (Harry), and then he calls Darwin either Charlie, Chuck, or Chuckles, and only really calls him by his actual name when the situation calls for it or when he feels like it. No one has asked him why he does or really complained about it, except for Nate. Harry doesn't mind it it seems unless he's experiencing morning sickness. All the brothers also have shortened names for each other as well. Another question I had is if magic is so hard to learn and is supposedly meant more for dragon omegas than alphas, then how is Everard so good at it? Alistair can also do some magic as well. Is Nate able to use magic? How are dragons taught how to use magic? Why are some dragons more proficient at it than others? Will they bring Alistair up to date on what is currently going on and about Harry's discovery and why he was able to lay an egg? I felt bad for him when he started asking questions and no one was answering and that they kept him in the dark. *Narration* I really enjoyed Michael Ferraiuolo's narrative as it really heightened my enjoyment of the book. I did read and listen at the same time so I did notice that for some reason in the beginning when all of Everard's brothers was mentioned, was that one of them was called Frederick, when his brothers name was not actually Frederick and started with a B. That only happened once. Overall, this was a good book and I would recommend it for the same reason as I did for book 1

Perfect character interplay & fantastic narration!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5 stars 🔥🔥🔥🔥 Heat Level: 3.5 🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration: 5 OMG! I just loved this book so much!! Cluelessness, humor, food-related pet names and dragon style intrigue, all made for a fantastic story!! I just love Harry and Ev so much!! Both characters are so unique and fantastic on their own but their character interplay was some of the best things created and the narration by Michael Ferraiuolo was incredible!!!! I love the cluelessness, inquisitiveness and unique smarts that makeup Harry is just the best. I love his internal dialogue which he usually speaks out loud and his fascination and love of all things dragons is both a joy and hilarity. He’s clueless, yet so smart. He’s overzealous, yet adorable. He is just plain loveable!!! Now Ev, on the other hand, is the picture of a distinguished dragon and his interactions with Harry along with the never-ending list of hilarious food-related nicknames make for a fantastic mix of humor, sass, and sarcasm! I found their connection perfectly matched and really enjoyed their journey. I loved that we got more insight into this world and the intriguing world of dragons. I really look forward to more in this series and look forward to seeing what happens next to these dragons and their mates!! Another fantastic story and now one of my all-time favs!!!! Thanks for reading!

Love, love Harry & Ev

I so loved this book, the dynamics between the two. I had to laugh and guffaw so often. This is a great book to read or listen two if you need to brighten your mood. Highly recommended. Only thing for me I often could not distinguish Perry and Harry their names by the narrator in scenes if they both where there. However it became clear from the story line.

Harry, Steve and Everard

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved the first book in the Forbidden Desires series, so I was eagerly anticipating the second book as soon as it became available in audio (as Audiobooks are my jam). Harry is such a quirky character that we meet in the first book and Everard being a physician/scientist as well as Alastair's brother (one of the MCs from book 1), it's such an interesting meeting of the minds as the two meet. Everard is meant to be dealing with Harry who witnessed his room mate Iggy (now Alastair's mate) laying a clutch of 3 dragon eggs. Harry is a Beta but he's such curious mind so full of questions that Everard isn't quite sure what to make of him. This is their story of becoming an unconventional family complete with Steve the iguana. I love the writing style of these two authors and Michael Farraiuolo does an excellent job of bringing these wonderful characters to life. I've lost count of how many times I've listened to this one. Roll on book 3!

Clear your calendar, you won’t put this down

Harry is my favourite. He’s just such a brilliant character! This book spans most of the same timeline as the first in the series, but focuses on Nate’s roommate Harry and Alistair’s brother Everard, who did not, in fact, ignite or eat Harry as expected. It also furthers the overarching story of the science behind dragon breeding, the rarity of clutches being borne by omegas, and what it means to be a Disgrace. It’s absolutely gripping on both levels.

Love it!

I loved this audiobook. Everard's food-related pet names for Harry were hilarious, as was Ev's tricking Harry into believing he needed to feed him with his semen. And Harry's parents...it was easy to see how he turned into the quirky knowledge-seeking motor-mouth he is! It was great to watch Ev slowly fall in love with Harry who appeared to be absolutely clueless until he was in love too. All around fun, quirky characters, and I can't wait for more. Perry is still one of my favorite characters. He is so sweet, and the voice of calm, knowledge and reason for the new dragon omegas (and omega-beta's). The narration is great, especially the voicing of Everard. Calm, cool, and collected, Kumquat:-) I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook at my request, and have voluntarily left this honest review.

Love Harry so much

I didn't wait long for this book to come out on audible but it was long enough, I loved these two in the first book and now they have their happy. Michael Ferraiuolo does an amazing job bring them to life. Everard and Harry fit so well both being scientists, Everard's terms of endearment for Harry were fun, varied and made me hungry. Harry was eager and enthusiastic making Everard loosen up a little bit. More detail about the Dragon world and how it works in this book, but it's just as steamy as the first. I loved it, it is a great second book and I can't wait for book three to see where the authors take us next.

I really enjoyed this book. Hot, steamy romance, science, and Dragons. What more could you want? Harry is such a sweet character who is so very lovable. Everard is brilliant and mischievous and smartly funny in his own way. This was a great second book in this series, and I cannot wait to read more.

This series keeps getting better and funnier!

Bond is book 2 in the Forbidden Desires series, which should be read in order for maximum enjoyment. Everard was a bit of a jerk to Harry at first, not that Harry minded that much when he was getting what he wanted, but still. It was fun to see proper Everard all out of sorts when faced with the much more innocent Harry and even more so, to see him unable to resist Harry's charm. And of course, I love Harry, he was such a delightful character. It didn't hurt that Everard and Harry had chemistry in spades, once Harry started to discover his libido, at least. ;) I couldn't wait to get my hands on this audiobook because I adored Harry and Everard in book 1 and I loved them even more in Bond. The storyline, the seamless way Virginia Kelly and Piper Scott meshed their writing styles and Michael Ferraioulo's fantastic job bringing all these characters to life—so much so that while I'm almost as eager for the next two books, I think I'm going to wait to get them all in audiobook format—continue to make this series into one of my top favorites this year.

Harrison story!

Harrison is the sweetest nerd. He is curious and perky in all the right ways. I was wondering what was going on with Everard. Everard seemed like he enjoy him as a pet but really a beta and an alpha dragon? The combination is super fun and entertaining. I do love this world Ms Scott and Ms Kelly have created. I think this one is my favorite yet, the endearments and the endless questions. Lovely!!! The narrator did an awesome job too.
