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.

Kenzie Hart is the dungeon brat and proud of it, because if she can keep that title, then no one has been able to discover all of the hard and painful things that she keeps hidden. The pain that she craves as a Submissive and the blocks she has placed on any of the Doms getting too close gives Kenzie the things she needs to survive. So when Kenzie is approached by the Dungeon owner and one of the Master Doms and asked to help another Dom prove if he is ready to be placed as a Master, of course she says yes. After all, what better way to for anyone to prove they are ready for the Master title than to try and tame the brat?

 

Porter Marshall is a private eye during the day and a Dom by the night, at least during the weekends when his Dungeon, Club Sin, is open for business. Porter knows all of the Masters in his current club, as they all were Doms together in another club before the first few broke away to join this one. When Porter is approached with the opportunity to become a Master in this Dungeon, he agrees to a challenge to prove himself to the members—a month where he will only play with one sub, the Dungeon brat, Kenzie.  Porter has wanted to approach Kenzie.

 

Right from the beginning Kenzie realizes that Porter sees much more than any of the other Doms have, and she works even harder to keep her secrets hidden. Porter can see exactly what Kenzie is doing and works even harder to show her that she can get even more happiness from pleasure than pain. When Porter learns of the danger Kenzie faces in her bookstore, he moves everything in his ability to keep her safe and take away the danger. What Kenzie believed was going to be a fun and easy month of playing with Porter has turned into a month of discovery and a budding love between them. Now that the month is almost over, both Kenzie and Porter need to figure out if they have what it takes to keep their relationship exclusive and give their love a chance to flesh out. Kenzie knows that the first step is all hers, no matter what Porter might believe.  After all, who better to gain her total submission than the Dom who tamed the brat and showed her that love and submission was the biggest pleasure of all.

 

A bookseller with deep secrets surrenders to a private eye who brings out the best in her in Tamed.  I have wondered about Kenzie since I first read about her and what was behind her actions at the Dungeon because she appeared to be much different when she wasn’t at the club. I already knew that Porter had lost at love at least once before ad that had hurt him. I was a bit surprised when he was willing to open himself up for Kenzie without knowing if she could ever give it back to him. I can see now that there could be no one else for Kenzie except Porter after seeing both of their pasts and strengths. I loved how Porter showed Kenzie exactly what she really craved and how he gave her a second beginning at the Dungeon, as his loving submissive and not the club brat. Tamed is very intense with emotions that will pull you one way and then the other before opening up to show you that it only took love, openness, and belief in yourself and the one you love to have everything. This is a wonderful next step in the personal lives of the Doms and Submissives of Club Sin that will have you coming back.
