Claimed (Club Sin #1) by Stacey Kennedy


Presley Flynn is ripe to experience her secret fantasies . . . and Dmitri Pratt wants nothing more than to fulfill them. Once inside the elite Club Sin in Las Vegas, Presley is nervous but excited—and determined to surrender to her every desire. Dmitri is her Master, and his touch is like fire. With each careful, calculated caress, he unleashes her wildest inhibitions, giving her unimagined pleasure.

Presley is different than the other submissives Dmitri has mastered. The BDSM lifestyle is new to her, and so are the games they play at Club Sin. From the start, Presley stirs emotions in him far beyond the raw purity between a dom and the perfect sub. For the ecstasy they share goes beyond the dungeon igniting a passion that claims the very depths of the heart.

(Recommended for 18+ due to mature themes and sexual content.)


4.5 out of 5 stars

Okay. Wow. Seriously! This book was smoking hot with an awesome story and I loved every single second of it! By 10% I was hooked!

I really enjoyed the first meeting between the two main characters Presley and Dmitri, I think I was smiling the entire time enjoying their conversation. It was very telling about Presley but I couldn’t wait to learn more about Dmitri, he’s so intriguing.

During the course of the story, Presley is trying to break herself out of her shell by doing things she secretly desires and Dmitri wants to help her. Their chemistry is fantastic and I really liked the pull they have to one another. Dmitri seems to be so in tuned with her both emotionally and sexually.

This story shares both points of view but I was more drawn to Dmitri's. He just seems to be so kind and caring. Presley is insecure in the beginning but grows throughout the book and it’s nice to see her become more confident. I felt this book was really intense but it also had some really endearing scenes. I enjoyed watching the two of them grow and come together, it was nice to see their relationship evolving just like anyone's.

There are some seriously HOT sex scenes in this book. From the synopsis I deduced there would be but the author has a definite way with words and creates some really great imagery. It’s one thing to read a really great sex scene but it’s a whole other thing to be able to visualize all the details. I think that this book contains one of the hottest scenes I have read to date. 

Beyond the sex, there is a solid story. A love story all be it far from a typical one but it worked for them. This book was an eye opener and I got slightly educated. I accepted the content for what it was, read, and was totally engrossed, hooked, and in love with Dmitri. 

By the end, Presley is strong and knows what she wants and Dmitri has come to know he's met his match. There was a bit of a tense moment at the end where I wanted her to come to her conclusion quicker but once she did I was thrilled. I loved now she could calm Dmitri and that he let her. It showed he was truly letting her in. 

It would have been nice to have even more details about the main characters backgrounds and even some of the sub characters. I thought Dmitri's was covered pretty well but not Presley’s. I really liked the other characters as well and am curious about them. I can’t wait to find out more about Cora and Aiden story. I know there will be a book 2 and I will definitely get it.

The only reason I’m taking away half a star is because I wish it would have been a bit longer and given more character background information. Otherwise I thought it was perfect. The author Stacey Kennedy has a new fan in me for sure.

Claimed is a fantastically hot and intense read!
