Overview

My Addiction by Cassie Ryan

In a novel of erotic passion and deep commitment from the author of My Obsession, an undercover cop finds a soulmate who surrenders to his healing touch.

Fiercely independent and determined to free herself from her father’s manipulation, tech expert Kate Fretwell finds a refuge in L.A.’s elite BDSM dungeon scene as the hot new thing to political and Hollywood A-listers. Still, all that glitters gets old, and Kate soon tires of the stream of well-heeled masters who expect her to be at their beck and call. Then she meets a very different kind of Dom—one whose quiet confidence, strength, and command bring her most willingly to her knees.

Undercover FBI agent Dex Alexander fits right into his assignment to expose terrorist links to one of L.A.’s most popular clubs. The case has reawakened a desire to find the perfect companion, and he knows that beautiful, vulnerable Kate is a woman he could love. But when her father’s corruption unwittingly makes Kate the target of a bigger enemy, Dex brings her to his Phoenix home—and his dungeon, Club Desire. Here she shows him just how eager she is to give him everything . . . and more.

I liked Kate a lot. She is determined and stronger than she thinks. It was interesting to watch her character when she was with various Dom's and when she deals with her dad. The interaction's with her dad is portrayed in such real detail that the reader wants to scream at her dad, "Listen and don't talk". Her character shows a woman who is empowered and knows how to take care of herself even when things do not turn out the way ones hopes. Undercover Dex for some reason didn't connect with me. He was hot, protective of sub's, and dedicated to his career but somehow I couldn't feel myself falling madly in love with him. I do feel he was the perfect match for Kate and that he understood her unlike anyone she knows even her father. The most dynamic parts of the story for me was from chapter 25 through the end of the book. I will say I was pleasantly surprised with the direction the author took the story and how it ended. I give this book 3 STARS because I couldn't connect with the hero but I did like the story and plan to read more of her books.

What a great story this is! I loved it, it was the perfect combination of suspense, sex, and two people who took no prisoners. Oh and Club Desire- yes please. Dex's job as an undercover FBI agent is to get close to Kate Fretwell. Dex is a Dom and co owner in Club Desire in his hometown of Phoenix. This job takes him to LA to the ultra elite club where Kate frequents. His job is to slip into her life to ascertain whether or not she is connected to a threat to the country. Her father, whom she doesn't have a good relationship with is also connected in the story line as well. He is a well connected and successful businessman. I loved both Dex and Kate. Two strong characters, Kate had backbone and wasn't a pushover. Great business sense and no ones fool. Dex was a strong male who was also caring, great Dom and considering his job, brings that aspect along with his character. I really liked this man. His strength and caring for Kate. This book had some great twist and turns and the plot just keeps unwrapping the more you read. Cassie Ryan wrote an amazing story here, I loved every second and it was a real page turner and hot. Her characters were fully developed, the story in place, backstory intact and families pulled in as well. I want to read book one now. Loved this book and I highly recommend this one. I look forward to the series. Nice work Cassie, keep them coming!! **arc from NetGalley and publisher** in exchange for an honest review.

I was given a gifted copy by NetGalley. Kate Fretwell is a graphic designer who is into BDSM lifestyle. She has a membership at The Dungeon in L.A. However, she is not very happy because the Doms there are not very good trained. One day she is boarded by Senator Balkins telling her she has been gifted to him for the night by another Dom. She is about to get free from the horrible man when she is rescued by Master Dex, the new Dom in the club. Dex Alexander is a Dom and a good one indeed. He is an FBI agent working undercover. When he meets Kate, he can see she is different from the rest and he can’t believe she is with the terrorist group he is investigating. I did like the book. It is well-written and well-edited. It’s funny and difficult to put it aside. At the begging. It was a little slow but then you get into the story and you don’t want to get out. The end is something I didn’t see it coming and it was a great surprise. I like Kate because she is honest and reliable and I like Dex’s way of treating his subs. He is kind and caring, always worried for her well-being. The sex scenes are very hot, being the best the one in Brent’s office. I highly recommend this book to all readers who like hot steamy stories and BDSM.

If you love sexy reads that includes a taste of BDSM and the Dom life with a yummy man, then this is a book that you would enjoy. With a taste of drama and crime, the plot leads us through the story that includes an undercover FBI agent, who happens to be a Dom, and his sweet sub, who may be involved in the plot deeper than he would like. The author brings us a story full of interest with the back story of murder, deceit, and twisted details, and a sweet HEA that makes your heart full. Several hot scenes to make your heart pound, along with some nice toe-tingling anticipation, makes this a page turner to remember. *copy received for review purposes

This is the second book in this series, but can totally be a stand alone, as I had not read the other book in the series and was never lost or confused. I really liked Kate and Dex. They were a great couple, very interesting, great chemistry and smexy. Speaking of sexy, the book is very hot! The Author did a good job of conveying the BDSM life-style and making those scenes between Kate and Dex spicy and intimate. Now, Kate's club was bad and I am sure there are "wanna be" clubs out there that are bad but I don't think a respected Dom or sub would go to it more than one time. The storyline I thought was engaging. Dex infiltrating the club to track down terrorists. It is a timely theme considering the world today. I would definitely read more by this Author. 3.5Stars I Voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher.

In three words this book was sweet, spicy, and surprising! This book was definitely something! This book is technically the second one in the Club Desire series, but it is also a standalone. Kate finds a sense of refuge in L.A.’s elite BDSM dungeon scene as a hot new thing to politicians and Hollywood A-listers. She eventually finds herself bored of the men who are becoming common to her but when a new and different Dom comes around, she rises an eyebrow and her interest is piqued. Dex, although a FBI agent, fits right in at these popular L. A. clubs. He's on an assignment, but his desire is awakened when he meets Kate as he figures she could possibly be someone he could love. Things take a more interesting turn as Kate becomes a target of a bigger enemy and Dex decides to take her to his Phoenix home. With that we get a mystery and a love story. The characters in this one were probably my favorite part. Kate had spark in her attitude and wasn't willing to let herself get ran over. She was smart and often head strong and was paving the way for her own life even though her father wasn't rooting for her. Dex was also a smart and interesting character. One of the most notable things about him is that he finds what happens at the club Kate often goes to unacceptable and is against the way some are doing things. He makes sure to care for Kate and mutual consent was always a big thing for him. There was an instant and undeniable chemistry between the two and it started smoothly but intensely. And check out that interracial goodness on that cover! This story wasn't incredibly suspenseful so you aren't sitting there trying to guess throughout the whole thing. This book is definitely more of an erotic romance and less of a mystery book. Between the characters and the story, their connection was what helped the story along so nicely. There were some parts that didn't completely wow me, but for the most part everything was dandy! This story was incredibly easy to read and was very well written! This one also wasn't emotionally draining. It is also more than evident that Cassie Ryan did an incredible amount of research. She showed multiple times what were the right ways and what were the wrong ways of doing things within the BDSM community. It's always great when readers get to see in a book, and with this one we also get good chemistry between characters within an interesting story! And I received and ARC in exchange for an honest review!

A great addition to the steamy series. Kate is a tech expert and Dex is an undercover FBI agent. Kate enjoys spending time at The Dungeon, being a submissive to LA’s elite. When Kate ends up in danger Dex takes her home and to his club, Club Desire. This is a fast paced read with lots of suspense and steam. Great characters and I was hooked to the story from beginning to end, I loved it!

I enjoyed this sexy story which paired two strong, independent people together. Dex Alexander is an undercover FBI agent at The Dungeon to find evidence of who is working with terrorists. Kate Fretwell is a graphic designer who he needs to get close to because she may be working with them, either knowingly or unknowing. What starts out as a D/s relationship quickly turns into more and the chemistry between Dex and Kate is off the charts. Many twists and turns, deaths, injuries, and ultimately crumbling of the lies between them to come to the truth. My biggest problem with this story was the abhorrent conditions of The Dungeon and the treatment of the subs. **Received a copy of this from the publisher via NetGalley**
