Review: Bared (Club Sin #2) by Stacey Kennedy


Bared (Club Sin #2) by Stacey Kennedy



In a novel that’s perfect for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, Stacey Kennedy returns to Club Sin with another wicked and wild tale of submission, seduction, and love.

At Las Vegas’s exclusive Club Sin, Aidan Knight is the Master, unleashing the erotic yearnings of his submissive lovers. But his dominant fa├žade conceals a devastating loss—something he instantly recognizes in his personally trained submissive Cora Adams. Sworn to unearth her secrets, Aidan uses his seductive skills to ignite her wildest desires until Cora yields to the pleasure she can find only with him.

Cora came to the BDSM club to act out her sub-and-dom fantasies without ever revealing the heartbreak that haunts her. But Aidan’s masterful touch is bringing her closer to the edge . . . and deeper into a world of control and surrender. He refuses to allow her to submit to any other man—nor does she want to. It’s a dangerous game they’re playing. For as they give in to passion, they must lay bare their souls for a love that could heal—and free—them both.

Bared is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.



5 out of 5 stars

This was such a excellent book. The connection that Cora and Aidan have is electric and they are extremely hot together. It starts off with a bang too! hothothot! Hints of their past and how Cora feels for Aidan had me emotionally invested right from the start.

I really liked Cora and her sass, she’s so sweet and spunky. How Cora sacrificed her own feelings for Aidan was touching. She was trying to be so strong and it was eating her alive. You can see how much Aidan cares for Cora and how much he wants to understand her. He did so many things to help her and in the process, he started confronting his own past. You could see and feel how he felt for Cora – waiting for him to realize it was agonizing (but it a good way). Aidan is dominating, sexy, and compassionate and watching him come to terms with his heartbreaking past was an incredible journey. There were so many emotional moments throughout the book I found myself getting teary eyed on several occasions. They really are perfect together.

I really enjoyed watching Aidan and Cora connect outside of Club Sin on more of an emotional level. They had some fun, playful times and some lighthearted moments. There is a beautifully written camping scene, so full of sensuality and emotion. Oh my goodness. My heart. They're so sweet and loving. It was a real turning point for them and I could feel it in every word I read. There was another very intense scene in a cemetery and I was so proud of Cora for finally realizing her feelings, opening up, and standing up for herself and being honest with Aidan but my heart was breaking. I'm not sure who I felt more sad for. It was just so gripping.

This book was incredibly hot. STEAMY HOT. There were some seriously intense scenes and even though the content was BDSM related, it never felt overdone or awkward. It was extremely erotic and well written with lots of detail.

I liked Aidan and Cora’s back stories and learning about them on a personal level. I loved the introduction of Porter, he’s a great addition. I like him a lot and am excited that he's getting his own book. I was really glad that Presley and Dimitri were in this story too. You could see how much Presley has grown and see how her and Dimitri are still very much in love. I absolutely loved seeing Kyler (he gets his own book too – yeah!). You could tell that he was holding back on what he wanted to say about Aidan and Cora's situation but when he unleashes, it was freaking fantastic! I was all heck yeah, go Kyler! I enjoy all the friendships and in the book, they seem so genuine and sincere. I liked when the guys hung out on their own too, those were great scenes.

Bared is a hot, emotional journey that captured me. 5 I-was-emotionally-invested stars! It ends just as hot as it starts with an incredible story in between!
