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.

Presley Flynn is ripe to experience her secret fantasies . . . and Dmitri Pratt wants nothing more than to fulfill them. Once inside the elite Club Sin in Las Vegas, Presley is nervous but excited—and determined to surrender to her every desire. Dmitri is her Master, and his touch is like fire. With each careful, calculated caress, he unleashes her wildest inhibitions, giving her unimagined pleasure.   Presley is different than the other submissives Dmitri has mastered. The BDSM lifestyle is new to her, and so are the games they play at Club Sin. From the start, Presley stirs emotions in Dmitri far beyond the raw purity between a dom and the perfect sub. For the ecstasy they share goes beyond the dungeon, igniting a passion that claims the very depths of the heart.   Claimed is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Presley Flynn moved to Las Vegas with her fiancé for a new beginning, but it soon became apparent that the relationship would not work.  Now Presley lives with a friend and is trying something that will erase her feeling of discontentment.  At the suggestion of her roommate, Presley is headed for an interview at the dungeon with the head master.  The theory is that Presley is a submissive and what she needs is a master to help satisfy all her needs.  Presley isn’t sure but she is willing to try.

Dmitri Pratt runs Club Sin and personally interviews every person who wants a membership, be they a Dom or a Sub.  Today he is waiting on a Sub’s roommate that he has agreed to see and decide if his club will work or not for her.  Dmitri hasn’t had a personal sub for quite awhile but he keeps an open mind.  When Presley walks in, at first Dmitri is amused at how nervous she is and as they talk he is intrigued.  Not only does he want Presley a part of his dungeon, but he wants to be the dom to train her.  A very unusual decision.

As Presley learns the ins and outs of BDSM and the club, she begins to think that maybe this is exactly what she needed.  It also helps that Dmitri is the person leading her through her training – the sparks between them are many and red hot every time they are together.  As Dmitri and Presley get closer and closer, their time together becomes more personal and even loving – something that doesn’t always happen between doms and their subs.  Presley has just about completed her training and there are other doms at the club who are hoping to become her permanent dom, but will Presley agree to that and can Dmitri give up the woman who has come to mean so much to him? 

A woman looking for a missing part meets a man who needs the perfect woman to make him whole again in Claimed.  Presley and Dmitri’s first meeting is just enough to foreshadow the passion that erupts between them as they come to know each other.  I loved how Presley went forward with going into Club Sin and her interview with Dmitri even as nervous as she was.  Right way I could tell that Dmitri would be the perfect Dom for Presley – his actions with a nervous new sub both firm and gentle.  Watching as Presley and Dmitri came closer and closer as her training progressed and also seeing all the sparks that happened with every scene had me hoping that their relationship would extend past the club.  But even I was amazed at how far they came in such a short amount of time.  Tension filled scenes became erotic lovemaking and it was no surprise that passion followed close after that.  I loved watching as Presley came into herself and accepted this last part of herself with Dmitri’s guiding hand.

Claimed is both an erotic and passionate journey towards love in a world that not everyone can grow in.  For Presley and Dmitri, strength and rules can still leave a huge amount of room for passion when it’s the right people.
