Freed: A Club Sin Novel by Stacey Kennedy

Fans who can’t get enough of USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy will love this wicked, wild spinoff, a short novel that explores how sexy life can be outside Club Sin.
Mary Schmidt knows only too well how thrilling a Master’s touch can be. Her husband, Charles, had been her ultimate fantasy, a seducer in the dance of dominance and submission. She misses the sensual lifestyle they shared, but mourns him so deeply she cannot bear to embrace her submissive needs with another Dom—until a man who exudes temptation reawakens desires she can no longer deny.
Elliott Foster is dazzled by Mary. He instantly knows that she’s the woman he’s been waiting for—a woman who turns games into need. As her Master, he dares to unlock the deepest pleasures of her flesh, releasing her from pain and healing her mind. When Mary’s lithe body comes to life under his, he knows their connection goes beyond sex. Now that he has found the perfect woman, the perfect partner, the perfect submissive, he desires only to give her everything she craves.
Freed is intended for mature audiences.

For us older ladies this is a great read. Younger women don't have the the whole erotica field for themselves.

This book was not my style for several reasons (even though I still love the series).  It was just too depressing for my taste.  I think Stacey Kennedy hit the nail on the head with the emotional trauma that Mary was going through, but it was just too much on the down side and not enough hopefulness and strength.  There are several scenes where we experience her husband's death with her all over again, and it just made me want to walk away from everything.  In this case, Kennedy's amazing way of conveying emotions might have done more harm than good. Elliott knows that he wants Mary, but at times it seems like he isn't willing to really go after her.  He keeps leaving the ball in her court, which seems a little counter-intuitive for a Dom.  I wanted to see him work through more of the issues face to face instead of her having to deal with so man on her own. I really don't want to discourage anyone from reading this story.  It was beautifully told and full of emotions - just not the right ones for me.

Enjoyed this juicy read because it is good to think just because you are older you can still have a hot sex life Thanks from an older reader!

Wow! I loved this story of second chances. To be a sub and loose your Master is very emotional. The writing was so good I was yelling at my book. "Mary, come on girl let it go so we can get to the super sexy parts", that was me if you heard someone yelling this. I just love Elliot, his patience but strong conviction that Mary is his. He does what any good Dom should do, help her with her grief, teach her it is okay to move on but not forget. This story has so many emotions just keep the box of tissues close by. ***I voluntarily received this ARC from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept through NetGalley for an honest review.***

This was a good read but reliving her husband's death was too sad. I love this series but this book would have to be my least favorite. The ending was predictable but sweet.

Exceptional! This is the first Stacey Kennedy book I've read. I hesitated because it is part of a series but trusted the previous reviewers when they said it was a stand alone. I was interested in it because of a few reviewers stating it was an older woman. I'm kind of sick of all the sexy books being about 18 year olds and 20 some women. This book was amazing. It doesn't matter what age you are. It's probably one of the most sensative and emotional BDSM books I've ready. It's a beautiful love the kind that can last. Not necessarily a second chance but as the character Mary in the book states, it's a second journey. Being a widow at the young age of 46 is so difficult. The author takes us on a journey into the lives of a Dom who is sick of all the young not so knowageable submissives and the beautiful, intellegent, Mary who has to learn to trust again and live again. I would totally recommend this book!

I really liked this installment in the Club Sin series! I liked that it took place away from a club, and seemed to go more into the characters lives than previous installments in this series. At first Elliott came off as a bit creepy to me, but he grew on me as his story unfolded further into the story, and I ended up really liking him. I'm glad he gave Mary chances to realize what she wanted, but I think he gave in a bit too much to her; I wanted Mary to take the big leap; I was beginning to feel bad for Elliot and I'm glad he got a back bone. I liked the flashbacks to Mary's previous relationship; mainly the later flashbacks, it was nice to see a different side to Mary. Elliott and Mary being an older couple was an interesting view to read about, and the lack of games between the couple added to my enjoyment of the story. It was good to read about characters who already knew the lifestyle and what they each wanted out of that lifestyle. Freed was very good addition to this series, and I would say it's in the top 2 for me in this series.

This series has me hooked. Although I'm not as old as Mary I can relate to her a little more with the body issues from having kids. I felt like this one dragged on a bit more the others in the series but it was still a great read and I'm looking forward to the next.

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ Stars Does life really end when you lose your other half?  The one you had shared your life with? Raised your children with?  Lived the BDSM lifestyle with?  This is the next book in the Club Sin series by Stacey Kennedy.  It looks at the BDSM lifestyle through the eyes of an established DOM and Submissive. It is also about rebirth of passion and a renewal of life. Mary Schmidt had it all, a family and a husband that she loved and that loved her in return.  When he is taken from her it is difficult to move on with her life.  Suddenly she is alone and wanting more.  While having dinner with friends at their home she meets an intriguing male that she immediately identifies as a DOM. He is her age and her submissive self recognizes and wants to get to know him better.  She accepts an invitation to a gathering of like-minded people from him.  Is this the path for her?  Can Elliott be a new beginning for her? Elliott Foster is immediately drawn to the beautiful Mary when he meets her at his friend’s home.  He can tell that she is a submissive and responds to him beautifully.  He knows that this is the woman that he has been waiting for and wants the chance to claim her as his own.  Will Mary be able to leave her past behind and take the steps to a future with him? Hero: Elliott Foster 4 stars Heroine: Mary Schmidt 4 stars Plot:  4 stars Steam Level:  4 stars Cliffhanger:  No Would I recommend this book:  Yes.  This is a sweet romance that sizzles with the BDMS lifestyle and proves that age has nothing to do with finding love. It also shows that it is never too late to find your HEA. Would I recommend this author:  Yes. Ms. Kennedy once again dazzles her reading audience with her wit and insight into the BDSM lifestyle.  I look forward to reading her next book. ***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***

“FREED” Club Sin Stacey Kennedy Mary Schmidt is a 50-year old independent, strong woman who has lost her identity. Four years ago, her world was decimated when Charles, her husband, father of her children, and her best friend and Dom died of cancer. With Charles, she was a vibrant, submissive, sexual being, who felt like she could do anything as long as she and Charles were together. He was her life and they pledged not only their love to each other but also their souls. Her heart, soul, and her submissive lifestyle has not been the same since he passed. She is no longer that vivacious woman; that person is dormant, a shell of her true self. Other than her work, her children, and the weekly dinners with a dear friend and fellow Dom, Dmitri Pratt, and his girlfriend, Presley Flynn, her life is empty. She misses Charles deep down in her soul and has refused to move on and play with anyone, let alone date. She has never met anyone that appeals to her. Until one day, she meets Elliott Foster, a close friend and business partner of Dmitri’s. Elliott is a 50 year-old man, highly successful and a Master Dom for thirty years searching for something that is missing in his life. He enjoys the lifestyle and holds a BDSM play party every two weeks at Dmitri’s casino for other mature BDSM guests. He hasn’t found anyone who interests him. He wants a mature woman who he can arouse without even touching her. A woman who is confident; knowing exactly how she likes to play, but willing to expand her experiences. As soon as he sees Mary, he is mesmerized. When he takes her hand as a greeting and locks eyes with her, she casts her gaze downward. Recognizing that she is a sub, his desire becomes inflamed. He wants to play with her, so he invites her to a play party the following night. She politely declines the invitation; but later her desire overwhelms her. She slips into her black corset and lacy underwear and goes to the party. The submissive in her craves one night of hot unadulterated sexual play with a strong Dominant. While leaning against the wall, Elliott approaches her and the fire between them is sizzling hot. He takes her to his room, because he wants her all to himself. They have a very erotic night, but her mind keeps merging the present with Elliott with her past memories of Charles. Their strong sexual desire continues into the weekend. They have an impassioned time; until Mary realizes what she is doing and closes her emotions off. Mary begins to recognize that she no longer wants the life of a lonely widow. Elliott has rekindled not only her sexual desires, but her ability to love another man too. Mary must decide if she can finally lay Charles to rest and move on with her life with Elliott. Elliott must convince her that it is time for her to embrace her own identity and submit to him heart, body, mind and soul. My thoughts: To begin with, the title is very accurate. It implies so many things for Mary. Freeing her sexual submissive identity, her life, and her love. Mary has a normal struggle on her hands. Losing someone with that kind of connection can be life-altering. The book accurately portrays that struggle. I liked the fact that this story was based on more mature adults and not the usual younger ones. It shows that life doesn’t end at forty. All and all, I would recommend this book if you are looking for a little BDSM with a great romantic story, but if you are looking for some more intense play, this is probably not the book for you. Full Disclosure: I did receive an advanced copy of the book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

4.5 star I was pulled right into this story. The story was good and flowed well. Very passionate and lots of emotions. This is Mary and Elliott’s story. Mary has grieved for her late husband/Dom for the last 4 years. She knows she misses the lifestyle but can she love again? When she meets Elliott the chemistry is instant and so hot. Can Mary trust Elliott to be her Dom and does she want back in that lifestyle? Is she ready for it? Can Elliott give her everything she has been missing since she lost her husband? I loved these characters they were great together. This is a great emotion driven read. You can feel Mary struggle with feeling of the past and the present. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I highly recommend this book.
