Allison “Allie” Bennett is a top real estate agent, and she knows that she has brought in the biggest sales and clients for her firm.  But because of a ‘good old boy’ mentality, Allie is not treated as such.  Allie along with the other employees of their firm are shocked and surprised to learn that they have just been bought out by Micah Holt, and now they are all wondering if any of them are still employed.  Allie herself gets a huge surprise when she meets Micah in person.

 

Micah Holt is a very complicated man.  He is a real estate mogul, a deeply private man, and also a Dom as well as one of the members of the Dominants’ Counsel.  All the members of the Dominants’ Counsel are wealthy business men who also own some of the top BDSM clubs in San Francisco.  After a recent takeover of a small real estate firm, Micah expected it to be business as usual.  However, he is shaken by his instant attraction to one of his newest employees.  Micah is not one to combine work and pleasure, but right now he isn’t sure just how to react to his attraction to Allie and her pure outlook on life.

 

Allie and Micah begin their relationship as employer and employee, but it doesn’t take long before their attraction grows when given the chance.  Allie falls even harder when she discovers the lengths Micah went to in order to be the man he thought she would respect and love.  As their relationship deepens, Allie can tell that there is some secret part of himself that Micah is holding back and that secret is something that Allie will need to learn before she can fall over that final hurdle with him.  While Micah has been pretty open about telling Allie many of the things he keeps private, his club and dominance is not one of them.  Micah is worried that Allie will never be able to accept that dark place inside him that he tames with his club.  Once the truth comes out about secrets they both kept, will Allie and Micah be able to find a way to bridge the gap between them with the love and understanding they have gained along the way, or will Micah’s dark half keep them apart forever?

 

Two heavy hitters in real estate and past pain collide and discover that love can heal even the deepest of hurts in Bound Beneath His Pain.  I fell for both Micah and Allie from the very beginning and loved watching as their personalities rolled out.  I loved seeing all the parts of their characters and how they had turned hurtful pasts into caring.  Knowing this was a BDSM story, I almost expected one thing, but luckily I came into Micah and Allie’s story not expecting the same ol’ thing, and I’m so happy I didn’t because I found so much more.  I was amazed and loved the deep sensual passion which bleed from the pages as Micah and Allie learned to love each other and even later as they overcame the things in their pasts that could have torn them apart.  Bound Beneath His Pain is a love story with deep and abiding passions, sensuality, and the caring of good friends that kept me turning the pages until there were no more to read.

Dmitri Pratt is the owner of Club Sin, and he is one of the six Masters.  Dmitri is finally living his life as he’s always wanted. He is at the top of his profession, his BDSM club is all that he wanted it to become and, best of all, he has found his ultimate Sub in Presley.  And then one night, it was all threatened, which is something that Dmitri will not accept without fighting for it—no matter what.

 

Presley Flynn has fallen in love with her life since accepting Dmitri as her love and her Dom.  Now she only works a couple of days a week and donates her time to a cause she believes in on the other days, and her nights are all filled with Dmitri and Club Sin on the weekends.  Presley knows that something horrible has happened when the club is unexpectedly shut down but, like a good Sub, she waits to question Dmitri until after they were home.  She never expected how her life would be turned upside down by a simple question.

 

Dmitri and the other Masters immediately start to find out who is behind the threat to Club Sin and its members and how to end the threat.  Dmitri is so focused on solving the issue that he does the one thing he swore never to do—he ignores Presley and then almost hurts her.  Presley might be the submissive in this couple, but she is not push-over, and she is not about to allow Dmitri to treat her like a second thought. She takes steps to make sure he knows it.  Dmitri has eliminated the threat and the reason behind it and now takes the steps necessary to bring Club Sin back safer than ever for everyone.  Now, all he wants is to fall into Presley’s arms and love, only to find out he has another situation and this time, love is on the line.  Can Dmitri find a way to show Presley that she is his everything and to give her all she deserves, or has he destroyed that trust which is so necessary in both love and BDSM forever?

 

Dmitri and Presley had a love and life that neither thought could be threatened and yet, that is exactly what happened in Mine.  Ever since I learned that the last story in the Club Sin series was about Dmitri and Presley, I have waited to see just how their love would have grown.  I was happy to see that they were great, and then I was struck as I watch them begin to unravel.  I knew that Dmitri could be single-minded, but I was amazed to see just how far he could go.  I cheered for Presley as she put herself first even as I hoped that she and Dmitri could find a way to work it out.  And man, did Dmitri find a way to not only solve the Club Sin issues, but to also prove to Presley, once and for all, that she was and would always be first for him forever.  This book might have ended the Club Sin series, but it ended with a bang and exactly as it had to in my opinion—with the couple it began with.  Mine is full of tension, both passion-filled and nerve-filled, the love of great friends, and best of all, the passion-filled love between two soulmates.  Just sit back, get comfortable, and enjoy a great story.

Sawyer Quinn is one of Las Vegas’ finest, otherwise known as a dedicated cop.  But Sawyer also has a side of him that only a few people know of, which is that he has been in the BDSM lifestyle for many years and right now is one of the six Masters in Club Sin.  Sawyer really can’t imagine his life without Club Sin in it and his many close friends from there.  But he is very attracted to a sexy, sweet and from all appearances, innocent woman who has no idea about that lifestyle, and Sawyer knows that not pursuing the attraction is a non-starter.

 

Chloe Nash is a sexy private investigator who works for one of the Club Sin masters. She just doesn’t know it.  During one of her last investigations, which was to help get the woman her boss loves out of danger, Chloe met up with one of Porter’s friends, and he was hot enough to turn her head even in the hot house atmosphere of Vegas.  When Sawyer finally asks her out, Chloe puts her heart at risk, and accepts.

 

As Sawyer and Chloe get to know each other and become closer, Sawyer instinctively knows that Chloe just is not built for the BDSM lifestyle.  When Chloe learns of Sawyer’s lifestyle, she is amazed and even more so to find out her boss and his girlfriend are also part of it.  Sawyer is at a crossroads: he can either destroy the very sweetness that attracted him to Chloe by inserting her into the club scene ,or he can give up Club Sin as an everyday part of his life.  Chloe is afraid that if Sawyer gives up something he loves for her, that it will eventually destroy the love they have, and she tries to see if she could be a part of Sawyer’s life in this also.  For Sawyer, the decision has been made; for Chloe, she needs to find a way to accept Sawyer’s decision.  Can both of these decisions be incorporated so that the love between Sawyer and Chloe will have a chance to grow, or will they tear apart that same budding love?

 

When a strong dominate meets a sexy innocent, love is the outcome, but will it be enough to bring their worlds together?  Sawyer and Chloe will discover the answer to this in Commanded.  I knew it would take a special woman to handle and love all the parts of Sawyer.  I was proven correct as I read Sawyer and Chloe’s story.  I loved watching as Sawyer struggled with his decision on his devotion to Chloe and his need for domination and especially how he solved it in a way that was a plus for all.  Chloe I found to be a strong and the perfect other half to Sawyer, and yet I really loved that she could admit and accept her boundaries on what she could deal with and what she could not.  While their ending was not expected, I found it was perfect for them.  Three cheers to Ms. Kennedy for giving us an ending that was right for this couple even if it was most unusual for a Club Sin book.  Commanded is a wonderful erotic journey as two worlds find a way to combine in happiness, friendship and most of all, passion.

Nexi Jones is a witch and a trained Elite Guardian who lost her entire family twice, first her birth family and then her adopted family.  Now Nexi is trying to live her life with a new family of friends and her lover on the other side of the veil.  There is a lot that Nexi can handle, but the idea of losing anyone else she cares for isn’t one of them.  So, when what appears to be a new serial killer begins taking out Guardians and Others, Nexi is ready to bring him down. Then he kills someone that hits very close to home.

 

Kyden was Nexi’s trainer and now he is her partner, boyfriend, and lover.  Kyden knows that Nexi will not let anyone shelter her, and yet he can’t help himself for wanting to do just that, especially when their hunt brings danger against Nexi and clues show that the killers might be targeting Nexi overall.  Knowing that he might be damaging their relationship, Kyden tries to keep Nexi out of the worst of the fighting…like she would allow that to happen.

 

Nexi understands why Kyden is acting as he is, and yet Nexi knows that she has to be allowed to fight her battles, even when she comes out of it with bruises and scrapes.  The Counsel and all of the Guardians are ready to go after the ringleader when that person is identified, and they believe that they have found the entire group of killers.  It’s a fierce battle, and it appears that the good guys are winning until they realize that Nexi is missing and has been taken to places unknown.  Can Kyden and Nexi’s friends get to Nexi before she becomes the next Guardian to die, or will Nexi have to take care of this matter herself to save herself and those she loves?

 

Nexi and Kyden are just finding their way in their relationship when their next huge challenge appears: a killer who seems to have a vendetta out for Nexi in Witches Be Burned.  I knew that after Nexi took care of the person who destroyed both her families, she believed that life might now be just settling down into her relationship with Kyden and learning her gifts better.  While I could understand where Kyden was coming from, I really could not believe that he tried to keep Nexi out of the fighting when it counted.  However, I could tell just how much they were in love as I watched while they worked it out and became even closer because of it.  I loved meeting Nexi’s new familiar and can’t wait to watch as this new partnership grows and just how Kyden deals with it.  I foresee many smiles in this area. Witches Be Burned is full of so many types of love that each page brought something new: the exciting love of new lovers, of friendships, of partners, and a new special relationship of a witch and her familiar and it is all mixed with just enough suspense and danger to be a page turner.

Tess Jennings isn’t about to let her annoying little ability stop her from having a fun time.  She might be able to see and speak to ghosts, however she has also learned to ignore them for the most part too.  Just like with this cute guy, okay ghost, who just arrived beside her.  Tess quickly learns he is a smartass and wants her attention – now!  Not going to happen. That is until he does something no other ghost has ever done to her.

 

Kipp McGowan was a cop with the Memphis Police Department who was recently killed in the line of duty working on a cold case.  For some reason Kipp is just lingering around trying to figure out what happened.  Then he comes across Tess and immediately realizes she cannot only see him but also hear him.  With his murder, along with the case he was working on still out there, Kipp isn’t going to let her ignore him.  Kipp is attracted to the sexy Tess and comes up with an erotic way to get her to acknowledge him.

 

Tess still has major misgivings about going to the cops with her story, but after she and Kipp convinces his partner, as well as his boss, what happened, things begin to get very interesting.  Passion and danger surround Kipp and Tess.  As they unravel the facts of what happened the night Kipp was killed, they also find a link to the very cold case he was investigating.  You might think that would be enough but they also have to deal with the strong passion that has sprung up between them.  Tess is fighting with everything she has, not because Kipp isn’t everything she wants in a man, but because she knows that when his murder is solved, he will go away and leave her alone.  Unable to fight anymore, Kipp and Tess have to accept what they are feeling.  When all the questions are answered, will Kipp still be a lingering spirit in Tess’ life?

 

What if the man of your dreams is a ghost? Tess learns how to deal with this in Supernaturally Kissed.  From the first page I knew this would be one unusual love story and I was so right.  I instantly loved both Tess and Kipp, and their love of life attitudes, even though Kipp was already a ghost by then.  From the moment they met I could see this was going to be one fun relationship.  I loved how they found strength in both humor and love, even in the hardest parts of their adventure. They had me laughing several times as I read on. By the end, I found them to be the perfect partnership in all things.  Supernaturally Kissed takes humor, suspense, and passion and twists them all into a love story that is an instant keeper.  I can’t wait to see what happens on Tess and Kipp’s next case and I’m betting you will be waiting right along side of me.
