Commanded (Club Sin #6)

Commanded (Club Sin, #6)

by Stacey Kennedy

# OF STARS  5/5                    Genre: BDSM             Pages: 195

Overview:

Club Sin comes alive once again in this decadent new erotic romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy, perfect for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey.

A dedicated cop, Sawyer Quinn blows off steam by immersing himself in his role as a Master at the hottest club in Las Vegas. But when Sawyer goes after the perp who brutally beat his sister, he teams up with Chloe Nash, a sexy private investigator who awakens a sweet new need: to keep her to himself, away from the dungeon of Club Sin. Chloe is beautiful, smart, and too innocent for the BDSM lifestyle. Sawyer’s never wanted a woman like this before. Is her love worth swearing off the one thing that keeps him sane?

There’s something different about Sawyer: a commanding strength that pulls Chloe into a vortex of heady desire. But when she learns about his double life as a Dom, she’s shocked—and afraid she could never complete him. Then he saves her life, and just like that, Chloe knows she will be able to give him anything he desires. She is his—wherever and however he wants to take her.

Reviewed by Tammy:

I received this copy from the Author for an honest review.

This is book sixth in the series and I am reading it as a standalone.

This book is steamy and not your typical bdsm book. We meet Chloe who is a strong woman who isn’t afraid of much. She deals with things and moves on easily. She has a long term boyfriend but they realize that they are better as friends. She meets this guy and they have a very strong attraction to each other. Will things work out? Will she accept the bdsm life style? Will it bring them together or tear them apart?

by A.A. Masters

# OF STARS  4/5                    Genre: bdsm               Pages: 52

Overview:

If you were to fulfill your fantasy of submitting to your first master, who would you choose; a young, strikingly good-looking lover who knows your desires like he knows his own, or a distinguished, experienced, dom whose strength pulsates off him like heat from the sun?

Isabel’s soul awakened when Luca, her gorgeous Italian boyfriend, uttered his first command. Her 22 year old body danced to his will in a way that she never imagined possible. She loved it. In fact, she was on her way to their wedding… when fate stepped in.

Seated beside her on the plane was Jack. Older, distinguished, he didn’t have to say a word for Isabel to feel his power. So when their flight got detoured for the night, would she be handcuffed by his strong will? Or would she resist?

Could one tantalizing night with Jack be enough to derail her life with Luca? And what would her demanding Italian fiancé do if he knew about Jack? Isabel’s body quivered in anticipation as she was about to find out.

Holy Cow!

This is one amazing story of fighting back and overcoming any obstacle in your way. She is fighting for what is right.

Some of the things she does are wrong but for her it is her only hope of getting her life back. She makes the best decision for her self.

It is never okay to be abused. Rape can be done by any one. We see different kinds in this book. Abuse is more then physical it is mental as well. Every-time it is done it takes a little more of that persons sole.

I love this SERIES because the author has you walk threw her shoes in the stories. You feel as if it is happening to you. I am a survivor of rape and physical and mental abuse and I take courage from these stories.

It is never okay to be treated wrong and when you get away and get your life together you have to confront your demons to fully move on. Each person reacts differently but you get courage from her story.

You see she has have hope and faith. She has a great support system. She has the courage not to take it anymore.

Thank you for this amazing story of courage and perseverance.

I don’t know where to start with this story. It is very moving and extremely sad. There is so much abuse and heart ache. The people who should have loved her and taken care of her betrayed her in the worst way. She is sent away. She copes with all her issues but she really isn’t living or surviving. She finally comes back home to confront her demons and move on. She meets back up with her best friends and the man she loves. But will she accept it all and feel she can move on or hide? Will she make the right choices? Will she accept the love she deserves?

Just when you think you know everything the other shoe drops. Now I have to wait to read part 2.

As her relationship with Ethan grows more physically intense, her boundaries are pushed so far that she Emma is faced with an almost impossible decision; should she give Ethan up and return to the life she knew, or allow him to draw her completely into his world?

 

Reviewed by Tammy

The book for me is on the slow side I had a hard time getting into the book.

We follow Emma as she meets a guy she likes but because of how her last relationship ended she has issues with self image and doubts about everything. She likes the guy but has been warned off of him by her friend and him. She learns he is a dominate and she not sure if she is ready for that.

She agrees to do it. But she wasn’t prepared for it at all. He didn’t give her enough information and I see this as a hard way to introduce someone to this life style. He makes her work past it but I do see how he dose listen to her even when she doesn’t use the safe word.

He fisted her and belittled her. She dealt but felt insecure. He took her from behind even though she was scared she worked past it. But when it was over she ran. Was it too much and will she want more?

She doesn’t follow all his orders what will her next punishment be and can she take it and still be with him?

Wow these two have some issues to work out if they are going to be together.

Now we are doing bloodletting he has no specific style he all over. I fell he is out of control he is not preparing her for anything and some of the things he does to her are degrading if you are not prepared correctly.

Wow just as she is dealing with one issue her ex-husband has to make an appearance will this make things easier or harder on her? Will it influence her decision?

After she makes her life altering decision she has an intense session and feels at home. My only complaint is that she ends it with us wondering what will happen next in their lives.
