Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

Whistles and applause echoed through the exclusive BDSM dungeon Club Sin. Submissive Kenzie Hart smiled and leaned against the pole off to the side of the stage, the scent of sex and sweat sweeping through her nostrils. There was nowhere in the world she’d rather be than right there, surrounded by leather and lust.

Club Sin had been her kinky salvation since the dungeon opened more than four years ago. She knew for a while she needed the sexier side of life. And she sure as heck relished the Dominant men who called Club Sin home. These men could—and often did—rock her world.

Outside of the club, she was a bookworm and simple in nature, not wanting for much. Inside the walls of the dungeon, she was Club Sin’s brat—a submissive who liked to push the boundaries between pleasure and pain, and who was known to give Dominants a difficult time. But that truly wasn’t her—she had worked hard to create the new identity for herself, because in her mind she wanted to be different from who she was in reality.

Club Sin was the fantasy that aroused her mind, body, and soul.

A soul that she’d known for a long time had been battered by a painful past.

Years ago, she had discovered a way to cope, a way to reach toward happiness, and that came in the form of attending Club Sin. The welts and bruises left on her body after an intense scene overshadowed the demons in her heart that were always right on the surface, ready to threaten to send her spiraling into a deep depression.
She scanned the members of Club Sin, glad that she had even the most observant Doms fooled. Her chin rose with pride, as the act she put on in the club made living outside these walls easier. It made her believe she was that strong woman, at least for a little while.

Movement stirred around her as she was surrounded by submissives in lingerie and Dominants commanding the space. The exclusive dungeon, known for its forbidden desire, with some of Vegas’s finest Doms, was in full attendance tonight. Some were new members. Others, like Kenzie, had belonged since Club Sin’s opening.
The dungeon’s owner, Dmitri Pratt, had taken pity on her at their old club, Chains. If I don’t take you with me, you’re going to end up in trouble, he had told her. Not that Kenzie agreed with him; she could handle herself and proved that time and time again, but she hadn’t argued, either. She loved playing with experienced Doms, and Club Sin had them in spades.

The soft music drifted through the romantically lit room, setting the sensual mood. Even though Club Sin was called a dungeon, the only dungeonlike thing about the space was the stone walls. Black sofas were situated throughout the main room, with fancy chandeliers hanging above them. To a vanilla crowd, the room would appear to be a classy lounge, but the BDSM equipment set this room apart from anything so casual.
Someone laughing drew her back into the moment. She turned toward the stage, focusing on the newest submissive to Club Sin, Ella Snow. Kenzie was surprised Ella still possessed the ability to stand. Her Dom, Club Sin Master Kyler Morgan, had sure as hell claimed her as his, putting her through an intense scene only moments ago.

Tall, powerful, and devilishly handsome, Master Kyler approached Ella in slow strides, savoring the moment. The crowd began to whisper; the bodies that were shifting in movement went still. The light above Kyler sparkled off the diamonds in his hand, and rapid shock fluttered through Kenzie. He doesn’t waste any time collaring his woman, does he?

Kenzie had been in the BDSM lifestyle since she was twenty-one, and she’d never been collared. Ella and Kyler had known each other for only a month, if that, and this symbol was held as strong as a wedding vow to those in Club Sin. Though Kenzie understood why Kyler acted so hastily—Ella was an incredible woman.

She was one of those women who were naturally beautiful, with long blond hair and baby- blue eyes—Kenzie figured Kyler was making sure no other Doms could touch her. And since Kenzie had known Kyler for more than four years, she knew he waited for nothing; he simply took it. She admired and understood that because she did the same.

Kenzie hadn’t waited around for a better life, she had created one for herself.

Kyler drew closer to Ella, and Kenzie’s heart warmed for her friends. While she couldn’t help but be happy for them, collaring wasn’t for her. Seriously, being attached? No, thank you. Wild sex and hot BDSM kept her interested. The challenge of new Doms, while pushing against their mastery, is what she lived for—it’s what kept her sane.

Throughout the years while exploring the BDSM lifestyle, she’d learned that nudging a Dom only made him intensify a scene. Not out of anger or punishment. Doms had too much control for that. It pushed against their authority. That gave Kenzie exactly what she needed, a higher intensity of play.

Pain skirting the edge of pleasure made her forget her old self, past heartbreaks, and everything in between. One intense scene erased her weakness, giving her strength for the workweek, until she could return to Club Sin the following weekend for her next fix.

The crowd went silent as Kyler settled in front of Ella and asked, “Will you kneel for me and wear my collar, Ella, as a symbol of my ownership and of our love?”

Ella smiled and gracefully knelt before him. “I will wear it proudly for all of my days, sir.”

Kyler’s eyes softened in a way Kenzie had never seen from him as he fastened the diamond choker around Ella’s neck. Then he became more serious, tucking a finger under her chin. “You now belong to me.”

Really enjoyed this one. If you like your books on the hotter side and D/s this one is for you. Kenzie is known as the brat giving her Masters a hard time, but no one has taken the time to know the real her that is until Porter. Porter is so close to becoming a Club Sin Master. His last challenge Kenzie. The journey he thought he was on takes a big detour when Kenzie is in need of serious help. But the question is will Kenzie let Porter into that part of her life before it's too late. I loved the journey of Kenzie and Porter. You get a great storyline with your heat.

This is the fifth book in the Club sin series by Stacey Kennedy. Porter is a Dom and is a recent addition the Club Sin family. His goal is to be a Club Sin Master. However to meet this goal, he must deal with Kenzie. Kenzie is also a member of this club but she doesn’t always act like a sub. She is feisty. She is the one submissive that has given all the other Doms trouble. In order to become a Sin Master, Porter must play with Kenzie for a month. He must do what no other Dom has done and get Kenzie to become a total submissive. She is definitely going to be a challenge. Porter demands that Kenzie give him her total submission but this is something she does not want to do. She pushes Porter’s patience to the limits. Kenzie does not want to get emotionally involved. However as they do get to know each other better, Porter realizes there is more to Kenzie than what she portrays on the outside. He is determined to learn more about her personally. Over time though, Porter is able to break through Kenzie’s exterior and see what she is actually like. Kenzie slowly allows him into her heart. While there are sex scenes, of course, they are not too graphic. There is good character development, they seem to complement each other and it was a good read. This can be read as a stand-alone but it is best to read the others since some of the same characters pop up in this story.

In this latest BDSM romance from the Club Sin series, Porter finally gets a chance to have Kenzie right where he wants her as she agrees to be his submissive for a month, part of proving his rightful status as a Club Sin Master. But beneath Kenzie's bratty exterior beats the heart of a wounded woman, one Porter wants to help heal. Will he be able to break through Kenzie's shell and prove to her that they belong together? I'm not sure that I've ever been able to say this about a BDSM story before, but I actually thought this was one of the sweetest romances I've read lately! Porter treats Kenzie with such loving and gentle affection that it brings out her true nature, the wonderful friendly woman that she really is when she isn't rebelling against a Dom - her defensive gesture against revealing too much of herself. Their sex scenes together are still erotic and emotional but with a gentler touch - at least until Kenzie submits body and soul to Porter. The secondary characters, familiar faces from previous Club Sin stories add to the dynamics and plot of the story and there is a suspense subplot that adds tension and drama into the mix. I loved everything about this story. 5 stars for a riveting and sensual read.

When I’m asked who writes the most riveting and captivating BDSM novels, two names instantly come to mind……Cherise Sinclair and Stacey Kennedy. I said in a previous review of a Club Sin book that to compare Stacey Kennedy to FSOG was insulting and I stand by that statement to this day. The depth and complexity of her characters draw the reader in from page one and ignite a consuming need to discover their most intimate secrets and the past that has shaped the person they’ve become.  While reading is frequently an escape into fantasy, the men and women portrayed in Club Sin are authentic and convincing in their day-to-day lives and the backgrounds they reveal, where all too often tragedy has hardened their heart and soul. Kenzie and Porter are magnificent as their journey exposes fear, self-doubt, and eventually hope. I’m certain that followers of this series will be rapt by Kenzie’s compassionate yet tortured soul, and charmed by Porter’s steadfast devotion. If you haven’t yet taken the time to read the Club Sin series, then do it NOW!!

So much awesomeness! I love this series. The Doms are so Dom and the submissives are feisty, especially Kensie. I am always thrilled to get a new book in this series and to experience the next layer of Club Sin. It's amazing watching all of the characters progress through their lives, finding love and happiness and growing in ways that you just don't prepare for. I know the series is going to be ending shortly and usually that is kind of a let down but not this time, I feel that it's moved in the right directions all the way through and there isn't a book in this series that I can say was a let down.

I loved hearing the story of the bratty submissive. I liked Porter from the previous stories so that added spice for me. The series does not disappoint!

Love the stories and the characters and they are very hot!
Shanrock19 More than 1 year ago
This series is decent, I mainly like when the story is outside the club; I must be over BDSM club books because I find myself wanting to skim over those parts. I think this book is my least favorite so far because I just don't care for Kenzie very much, the whole bratty thing was annoying, and I know she was masking inner pain, but I still was having a hard time connecting with her. Also, the way they "solved" one of her problems, the problem with her building, I don't think is actually a way to solve that problem; I feel like it's just a band aid on the problem. I liked Porter alright, and I always enjoy the addition of the other characters from the previous books. If you like BDSM club books, you'll probably like this one, and this book is a little more spicy then the previous books because Kenzie is into pain, but it's still pretty mellow.

This story of Porter and Kenzie instilled that it is better to let go of the past and make a New and better future! Their love story was beautifully written! You just need to get over your fears and take that leap of faith! What is waiting could be wonderful!

I couldnt wait for this book to come out because this has been an awesome series and i love the club sin masters but i am disappointed with this one. Porter seemed wimpy to me and the whole "porter has to win her over by being sweet" just didnt work for me. It was ok but i expected a stronger story.
TammyS32 More than 1 year ago
Wow such and intense sexy read. Kenzie is hiding from the pain and hurt in her past and uses her time at Club Sin to escape. Porter want more from Kenzie than she is willing to give, will he break through her emotional walls and set her free? I enjoyed the dynamic between Porter and Kenzie and their chemistry is HOT. A sizzling read yet filled with emotion. A great story with plenty of hot sex. Enjoy!

Truly  aamazing.  Stacey Kennedy does a wonderful job with her characters.  Porter and Kenzie are awesome  together.  Porter is an amazing Dom and the way that he handles Kenzie shows  the rest of the Club Sin Dome  exactly what he is capable of. Kenzie is tuff and really wants to submit to Porter but has lots of issues that need to be  worked thru.  With the  help do Porter and Sawyer (Club Sin Dom)  they help  her.  When she shows her sib mission at the club there are no words?

No, say it isn't so! This series can't be near a finale. I have read this series from the first book. As this is a BDSM book it is intended for readers over 18! I have been bowled over by Stacey' s story line. I would never have thought over this. Most of her people are strong but it was harder for Kenzie and Porter. Kenzie is the smart aleck in Club Sin. She oversteps herself to be given what she wants. This is the only way to forget for her-Spoilers. She hides herself from everyone except Porter. He was turned away by a previous Sub. He was in love but she wasn't. He is up to become a Master Dom and is given Kenzie so he can show he is good enough to become a teacher. She fights him and he ignores her until he sees she is being attacked. Major Spoiler. I really didn't see how she would win and about worried my stomach away. I hope you choose to find out how Porter and Kenzie change their lives. This book is a short read and worth your time. Enjoy reading! I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.

Really liked the story line.
BooksterBelle More than 1 year ago
I loved the whole series! Many would consider this book porn. However, 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 impossible 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 the fear of getting hurt. 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. For those of you who have thought of visiting a BDSM club, it gives you a glimpse into what you might experience. Kenzie is considered "the brat" and Porter is required to tame her brattiness in order to become a Master at Club Sin. He didn't want the job but discovers there's more to Kenzie than many realize. Between the two of them they find a love that succeeds in working together in dangerous situations and a forever Porter nor Kenzie thought they would have!

This book was more boring than steamy. Very little conversation between characters instead it was pages of their thoughts.

I like this series a lot, It is one of the few BDSM series that I have been able to get into. Stacey Kennedy is an author that manages to draw me in and keep me reading well into the night, just too finish her story.

Good book. I wondered where Porter was going to fit in because personality wise he is different from the ither Doms in my opinion. Of course he has the right fit to help Kinsie. In the end persistence and love win the prize. Now seems that leaves Sawyer.... enjoyed

This is a story about BDSM, a broken past, & healing. Kenzie is a submissive who is called the bra because she gives the master Doms a hard time calculated to make them give her what she needs. Porter, a Club Sin Dom, is being considered for Master status and his challenge is Kenzie, for a month. She is to be his submissive and if he can handle her he will become a Master. Kenzie has had a disaster of a childhood and learned not to trust or allow anyone close enough to truly master her. As they embark on this challenge Kenzie becomes a target for an underworld connected man who is determined to buy her bookstore so he can raze the block and put up yet another casino. Kenzie's life becomes endangered and Porter steps up to help and support her. Underneath the obvious story is a tale of love and growth for Kenzie and Porter. This story was very well told and was quite good. The story is centered around the BDSM lifestyle and includes BDSM scenes.
