Image of Bound to be Dirty (Dirty Girls Book Club)

The Dirty Girls Book Club continues with Fox’s compelling third entry, where parental influences play a large part in the relationship between Dax and Lily. As the couple explores their sexual boundaries, more important issues complicate their relationship and hamper its growth.

Dax and Lily lead disparate lives. She’s a doctor who runs a clinic, much to the chagrin of her upper-class parents, and he’s a bush pilot whose calling is in the Canadian wilderness. It’s Christmastime, and Dax has a break from his routine. While Lily is at work, he stumbles across her book club selection for the month, Bound by Desire, and is startled to discover it’s about BDSM. He wonders if applying some of the techniques in the book might rekindle the spark missing from their marriage. Their sex life is stimulated, and Dax and Lily realize they still love each other. But can that love give them the strength to resolve their differences and keep them together? (HEAT, Feb., 368 pp., $15.00)
