Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

“Master Dmitri doesn’t expect sex.” Cora grunted. “You’ll keep your clothes on.”

Presley Flynn scanned the foyer of the snazzy mansion and looked for something to hold on to as her roommate, Cora Adams, hustled her down the corridor. With a little shove, Cora added, “You wanted this, remember?”

“Clearly, I’ve lost my damn mind.” Presley pushed back against Cora’s hands, trying to hold her ground.

The mansion was pleasant, with thick dark wood on the trim of the doorways and gentle burgundy-painted walls, but it did nothing to settle her nerves. Beneath her feet, located in the basement, was the elite BDSM dungeon, Club Sin. “Maybe I need to go to a therapist. Or skip that part and go straight to the nuthouse.”

Cora stepped in front of Presley, and her big blue eyes, lined with dark makeup, sparkled. Her long chocolate-colored hair fell over her black blouse, and her red lipstick covered pursed lips. “You told me you wanted to join the dungeon.”

Presley snorted. “You said I was a long-lost submissive who needed the lifestyle. Which, apparently, is so far from the truth, since why am I on the verge of puking all over this fancy hardwood floor?”

Cora smirked. “Please don’t puke on Master Dmitri’s floor.”

“Okay, great,” Presley muttered in total agreement. “See, it’s best I leave.”

She turned to get the hell out of the place when Cora grabbed her arm, pulling Presley back in front of her. “One chance, Presley, that’s all you get. If you leave now, you won’t be allowed to come back.”

Cora walked forward, and Presley found herself matching her stride. They passed a grand wooden staircase on the left, leading to the upstairs. A huge wrought-iron balcony curved around the entire upper floor, which led to numerous doors used for God knew what.

They strode by an oval-shaped dining room, and Cora added, “There’s a reason why you read so many BDSM erotic novels. There’s a reason why it turns you on. And there’s a reason why you made the decision to come with me tonight.”

Stopping near the doorway to the office that Presley had been avoiding for the last five minutes, she inhaled. “You’re right. I did come here for a reason.” To surrender to her every desire. “I don’t want to walk out the front door, but—” She pointed toward the office. “I’m scared shitless to walk through that door.”

“Of course you are.” Cora grinned. “Your darkest, most secret fantasies await you in that office.” Without another word, she spun on her heel and headed down the hallway in the opposite direction.

“Do you plan on coming in?”

Presley started at the powerful low voice that seemed to draw her forward, giving the fearful butterflies in her stomach a flutter of excitement. Her feet moved without thought as she entered the office, which looked much like a library.

Books filled the shelves at the far end of the room, along with a grand wooden desk. A computer and telephone and other office accessories sat on top of it. A sleek black leather couch was situated straight ahead, under the bay window.

“Ah, she finally decides to enter.”

Presley froze, as time halted. The man never raised his head to look at her, but he didn’t need to. His presence filled the room, making her entirely aware of him. He sat at the desk, his head bowed toward the paper he’d been reading. With the slight curve to his mouth, he stole the air from her lungs. He was hot.

As the owner of Club Sin and the president of Las Vegas’s top casino, Dmitri Pratt matched the mansion with his wealthy exuberance. Hard angles defined his jawline and cheekbones. His lips were lush and sculpted and his nose straight-edged. The sleeves of his black dress shirt were rolled up on his muscular forearms, displaying a tribal dragon tattoo on his left arm.

When she didn’t move, Dmitri stated, with his eyes still focused on the paper, “Take a seat on the couch.”

Exhaling slowly, she shed the tension in her chest as she made her way to the leather sofa and sat down. The coolness of the upholstery against her heated skin came as much needed relief. She crossed her legs, doing her best to portray confidence.

This book just did not do it for me. I have read quite a few books about BDSM relationships lately, and I am a big fan of other series that also focus on BDSM clubs (like Roni Loren's). But I found it hard to connect with the heroine in this book. There is a difference between being a sexual submissive and not having a backbone outside the bedroom. Some of the club scenes were not particularly original, not even enjoyable, especially the 'punishment' scenes, which were more about making her embarrased, thud playing with her mind rather than with her body to achieve pleasure. And this was upsetting, because humiliation was one of her hard limits. For a lifestyle that is based on well defined rules, I thought there were too many blurred lines between what was considered pushing the sub's soft limits and manipulating her into accepting her hard limits. In the end, I felt as if the Dom was brainwashing her into what he liked rather that what she liked. It sent the wrong message. On top of that, the end felt rushed, it was quite cold emotionally, and not too original. I honestly skimmed through many parts of the book. Not a book I can recommend whole-heartedly.

250+ pgs. I did not want this book to end. I laughed, cried and needed an ice pack ( because this book is HOT). I will be buying more in this series just as soon as they are published. My applause: A true story not just sex scenes but a fully developed storyline.Excellent writing, amazing story, wonderfully intriguing characters. My only complaints: more, more, more pages in this story (I didn't want to leave it) and the rest of the series NOW!!!!

I liked this book to a point. The heroine was too weak and humiliation was one of her hard limits and she was definitely humiliated. She should have remined angry when she was touched and he tried to justify it. If it wasn't for her weakness I would have given this a 5. The story was very good otherwise.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  Presley had just ended a long term relationship with a man who cheated on her and could not fulfill all of her needs.  Always eager to please, her friend Cora believes she could be a submissive and introduces her to Club Sin, a BDSM club that Cora belongs to.  There, Presley meets Master Dmitri.  Although she is an innocent to the lifestyle and inexperienced sexually, Dmitri agrees to let her explore and train her as a sub.  Although unsure, Dmitri gains her trust quickly.  As her training continues, they spend time outside the dungeon and discover a friendship that only reinforces their trust in the dungeon.  As Presley learns of Dmitri's past, she offers him a compassion and comfort that he has never felt before.  In a short time, this trust, friendship and compassion turn to love.  I hope that this is the first of a series and look forward to further stories from Club Sin.

The mix of bdsm and love was perfect. The bdsm wasn't too intemse which I loved. And dimitri was so caring. The sex scenes were HOT.

This book is moderatly good. The club and scene descriptions are good, however the constant explaining and clairafying of everything breaks theflow of reading to much for the book to be enjoyable. It almost feels as tho the author does not trust the reader to understand what is being said. It makes reading uncomfortable.

Claimed is the first book in a new series by Stacey Kennedy called Club Sin. I adore getting in on the ground floor of a great new series, I love to tell people all about the great new stuff coming out. This is a great new series :O)  Presley followed her boyfriend to Las Vegas only to find out he is a cheating scumbag, she is able to move in with a friend and loses herself in book after book of BDSM erotic romance. Her room mate, Cora, who lives the lifestyle discovers her friends reading preference and takes her to meet Master Dmitri. Will shy, innocent Presley be able to make the jump from her fantasies to the reality of Club Sin. Ms. Kennedy does a fantastic job of creating characters that you can understand and relate to but also building a sensual and sexually tension filled story for the lives of the characters to play out. Ms. Kennedy also does a great job at explaining part of the BDSM lifestyle such as the difference and the importance of hard and soft limits, safewords and even the difference between a bedroom/dungeon Dom and a full time Master/slave relationship.  This story has tons of sexual tension, some smokin' hot BDSM scenes and two people who should be so different they don't match but find they have more in common than they know. Throw in a sassy fun room mate, 4 other sexy Dom's and a loser ex boyfriend and you have this great read that starts a series I will be following as they come out.  I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Sweet story. Good storyline. A little kink & excitement but nothing crazy that might turn off " vanillas". Overall terrific. Never read this author before. Just bought 3 more!

Another interesting book read. Each time I read erotica I understand it more. However, it's getting a bit old that everyone is gorgeous and/or a billionaire. Just once it would be good to read a HEA BDSM story about a regular couple who live and follow the Lifestyle. That said, I liked the story. Stacey had a nice smooth flow between the scenes. She has also created characters who you believe in. Give this book a chance. It draws you into it's pages and doesn't let go.

(3.5 stars) I enjoyed Claimed well enough and think it’s a good start to the series. Presley and Dmitri’s story is on the tamer side than other books I’ve read on the subject. I liked that perspective and that their relationship is built heavily on trust. One tiny thing irked me throughout but was finally addressed at the end and then it totally made sense. That’s on me though. The characters never even brought that little thing up. I’m looking forward to the rest of

I loved the whole series! Yes it can be considered porn. But it takes a deeper level of thinking to look at it differently. A lot of women think the relationship between a submissive and a dominant is ridiculous for a strong-willed person. However a lot of strong-willed women are so in control of their lives. For example, you have family, a career, maybe even school. Its nice to have someone to take that control away and to be cared for once in awhile. Even if its just in the bedroom. Dominants' like to be in control, they revel in it, but with the right dominance comes the care and respect for a woman. If you loved Fifty Shades of Grey this book goes deeper into the relationship of a Dominant/Submissive relationship and for those of you have thought of visiting a BDSM club it gives you a glimpse into what you might experience.

I love a good erotic novel and was very eager to read this one. It started off pretty good but going on the story was kind of dull. I love a love story and steamy sex scenes, but even these didn't do much for me. I wanted a little more action. But the author has great potential.
