Readers of Fifty Shades of Grey are sure to love Desired, USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy’s latest seductive, electrifying novel of Club Sin, where fantasy becomes reality. Kyler Morgan, Master at the legendary Club Sin in Las Vegas, knows how to give women what they want—too well. He hasn’t had a real challenge in a long time. Then Ella Snow enters his life. Beautiful, inhibited, and innocent in the ways of submission and domination, Ella is the new blood he’s been lusting after. Soon, the thrill of training her to embrace his world brings forth desires Kyler cannot control. After ending an abusive relationship, Ella makes a promise to herself to start living life to the fullest. It’s one of the reasons she seeks out Club Sin. Here, Kyler’s every touch is a lesson in liberation, stirring passions that have no bounds. But as she falls under Kyler’s command, Ella discovers that some secrets are so dark they must come to light. Submission alone may not be enough to save her, leaving her Master with only one question: How can he help Ella heal while unlocking the deep pleasures she craves? Desired is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.
Ella Snow is coming out of a bad marriage and is starting her life over completely. Part of that was accepting a challenge to live her life like she would die in six months. Her first act on that challenge was to move to Las Vegas and get a job. While at her new boss’s wedding, Ella suddenly comes face to face on just how lonely she really is. But that isn’t enough to end her challenge to herself and when one of the sexy groomsmen approaches her, Ella doesn’t say no to anything.
Kyler Morgan is one of the Masters at Club Sin and a cop in Las Vegas. When he is asked to be one of the groomsmen at fellow Master, Aidan’s wedding, he accepts. During the reception Kyler notices a beautiful woman that he has never seen before. Before he can act, Kyler is warned about Ella by Aidan himself because she is Aidan’s legal assistant and very vanilla, but Kyler isn’t scared off by any of that.
One night of erotic passion was enough to show Kyler that Ella was submissive in nature. Once he learned of her self challenge, he had the perfect way to find out if she could be a Submissive for his Dom. Ella never expected her challenge to lead her into a BDSM club or to find herself dating one of the club’s Masters. It takes very little time for both Kyler and Ella to discover that Ella is a perfect Sub, but also quickly becomes apparent to Kyler that Ella is keeping a big secret that is affecting her ability to trust him. Ella’s immediate past has come to Vegas and Ella is trying to handle it herself while getting in deeper and deeper with Kyler. When Kyler unexpectedly learns Ella’s secret, he needs her to tell him herself and to find a way to make Ella’s hurt go away permanently. Ella’s worse fears happen when Kyler and the other couples from Club Sin find out exactly what she has been trying to handle on her own. Ella learns the true meaning of love and friendship after a night that could have torn apart the life she had come to love. Now it’s time for Ella and Kyler to discover if they can jump that last hurdle to take them into that loving relationship that all Doms and Subs search for.
When a sexy Cop who happens to be a Dom finds his perfect Sub in a legal assistant who has never experienced the BDSM lifestyle, can they find the path to a forever relationship? Ella and Kyler both have lots of hurdles to overcome so they can be together forever in Desired. All of the Ms. Kennedy’s Club Sin books have been intense so far, as well as erotic, but I have to say that Ella and Kyler’s story was the most intense yet. I hurt when I read just what Ella lost when she faced the truth of her marriage and why she started over and I loved her self challenge. Kyler was exactly what I thought of when I think of a cop who was a Master Dom. I loved how Kyler lead Ella into his lifestyle and showed her just what they could be together. I could see why Ella thought she had to deal with her problems herself and to not trust even the legal system she worked in herself. I really loved how tight Ella and Kyler came together even from the beginning and also how Aidan did his best to protect her without knowing exactly what was wrong. Kyler and Ella’s story had me so intrigued that I ended up reading it into the night and being very, very tired the next day.
There were so many things that I like and loved about Ella and Kyler’s story, that I just have to Joyfully Recommend Desired as a story you won’t want to put down. Stacey Kenndy has written a tale full of discovery, true friendship, and a passion that is worth the journey it took to grab hold of it. You don’t have to read the other Club Sin books in order, but I just bet that once you read one, you will go back for the others.
