An Alisa Audiobook Review: Wrapped in Chains by Cindy Sutherland and Narrator: John Anthony Davis


Rating:  3 stars out of 5


Devon West is a professional Dom who runs his own club, doesn’t believe in romance, and has never been in a long-term relationship. All this changes when he rescues Chase Mackenzie.


Chase is a runaway who has been kept as a slave since he was sixteen. Now twenty-three, he’s still innocent and sweet despite being severely abused and left behind by his Dom.


When Devon finds out that the man who held Chase hostage is the same man who hurt him terribly when he started learning about the sub/Dom lifestyle, he knows he has to keep Chase safe.


Spoiled rich boy and sociopath James Kingston is obsessed with Devon. He’s convinced Devon would be his perfect sub and Devon only thinks he’s a Dom because he needs proper discipline. Losing Chase to Devon is like rubbing salt in the wound, and he’s determined to get them both under his thumb. This time, Chase may need to rescue Devon.


This story was nice but I can’t say it was really good.  You know from the beginning that Devon rescues Chase and falls in love with him all while Chase falls in love with Devon.  But there is the added tension of Kingston, who is quite crazy from the sounds of it.


We see this story through both Chase and Devon’s eyes which gives us a good idea of what they are thinking and feeling.  Chase is a natural sub and easily submits to Devon’s Dom but this is the first time he has ever been cherished or treated well as a sub.  Devon has a hard time believing that Chase could actually really want him, they kept talking about him being older but when I would run through the timeline in my head he couldn’t be more than 5 years older than Chase.  Devon had a strong family of his friends around him and they quickly adopted Chase into the fold.  There was just something missing to this story to make it really good, but I can’t quite tell you what it was.


John Anthony Davis did a nice job narrating this story.  I was able to keep track of the story and characters with the different voices he used.  However, he often used a softer voice tone which didn’t match with what I often though Devon would sound like as a Dom.


Cover art by Paul Richmond is nice and works well for this story
