Kyler Morgan, Master at the legendary Club Sin in Las Vegas, knows how to give women what they want—too well. He hasn’t had a real challenge in a long time. Then Ella Snow enters his life.

Soon, the thrill of training her to embrace his world brings forth desires Kyler cannot control.

After ending an abusive relationship, Ella makes a promise to herself to start living life to the fullest. It’s one of the reasons she seeks out Club Sin. Here, Kyler’s every touch is a lesson in liberation, stirring passions that have no bounds. But as she falls under Kyler’s command, Ella discovers that some secrets are so dark they must come to light. Submission alone may not be enough to save her, leaving her Master with only one question: How can he help Ella heal while unlocking the deep pleasures she craves?

About the Author
Stacey Kennedy is the USA Today bestselling author of the Club Sin series. Growing up, Stacey’s mind wandered the path less traveled, and that path most often led to love. She has always broken rules and she continues to feed off emotion—always staying true to her heart. Those traits are now the bones of her stories. She lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, who puts any of the heroes in her books to shame, and their two young children. If she’s not on Mom duty or plugging away at a new story, you’ll find Stacey camping in the summer, hibernating in the winter, and obsessing over Penny Dreadful, Game of Thrones, and Sons of Anarchy.

TSRBR's Review

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

What happens when a vanilla girl and a naughty BDSM boy meet?  Fireworks of course!  Ella is a good girl that has been raised by her older grandparents in a conservative lifestyle. Ella had married her high school sweetheart right out of school only to find that he had developed into an abusive, drunken spouse after the death of his father.  She files for divorce, packs up and moves across country to get away from the abuse.  When she arrives in Las Vegas she doesn’t know anyone and feels alone and lost.  She is lucky enough to land a job in an office for a well-known attorney.  He takes her under his wing and treats her like a little sister.  When Ella attends his wedding she meets Kyler Morgan one of his groomsmen. 

Kyler is a Dom Master at Club Sin and is also a local police officer. He takes one look at Ella and knows that there is a connection between them.  Kyler wants to know more about Ella, but his friend, Ella’s boss warns him not to hurt her.  He tells Kyler that Ella is haunted by some issues in her past and she doesn’t need to be approached if he is not serious about her.  Kyler likes his kink but even though he knows Ella is vanilla he has to find a way to determine if perhaps she could want more. He approaches Ella at the wedding reception and spends an incredible night with her.

Ella doesn’t know how to tell Kyler that she is going through a messy divorce and she is too embarrassed to tell him about the abuse.  Kyler works with abusive situations and can see that Ella is exhibiting signs that she has been abused.  As their relationship grows, he is concerned that if he takes her to the next level he may do more harm to their possible future relationship than good.   Is it possible that she may be able to accept his domination? All he knows is that he wants Ella to be a permanent part of his life and for this to occur, Ella needs to share her past.  

Will Ella be able to accept an alternative lifestyle? Can she tell Kyler about her ex and how he became an abusive spouse?  Is it possible that Ella is a submissive and will share Kyler’s life?  Read this book and find the answers! ~TSRBR

Hero: Kyler Morgan 4 stars
Heroine: Ella Snow 4 stars
Plot:  4 stars
Steam Level:  5 stars
Cliffhanger: No

Would I recommend this book:  Yes!  This is a tastefully written BDSM love story with lots of really HAWT action in the Dungeon, in the bedroom and everywhere else.  The author takes a look at some controversial issues dealing with spousal abuse and healing while still developing the need for the BDSM part!

Would I recommend this author:  Yes! Love the way Ms. Kennedy tells her stories with humor and at the same time makes a statement about all the things that are really important in a relationship. I have already enjoyed Ms. Kennedy’s books and will continue to look for more.

***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***

(from Chapter Three)
*Please note this excerpt contains explicit content

Straddling his waist, she wrapped her arms around his neck. With pure need to touch her, to be closer to her, he crushed his mouth against hers. Kissing her swiftly and passionately, his tongue pulled at those lovely desires of hers.
By the time he stopped kissing her, his body was tense and greedy to take this woman deeper into pleasure. She melted under his lips and gave herself over to him beautifully. He bit back the need to demand more.
Leaving his fingers tangled in the back of her fishtail braid, he stared into her hooded eyes. He had to be cautious with her, though that didn’t mean through his testing of her he couldn’t offer her pleasure.
If she ended up being the submissive, and he thought she could be, he didn’t intend for her to go home alone tonight. If she wasn’t capable of going deeper into his erotic world, then he’d only have kissed her, and what was the harm in that?
“Put your feet flat next to my legs.” Once she complied, her knees pressed tightly together in front of his chest, he ran his hands down the smooth sides of her thighs. “Spread those legs, Ella. I want to touch you.” At her pause, he arched a brow. “Does that make your nervous?”
“No, of course not.” She rolled her eyes. “I’m always in the habit of spreading my legs for men in public.”
He chuckled. Sweet and sassy, very nice.
Holding her gaze, he offered her another test. “Can you push past those nerves knowing that I’ll give you pleasure?”
She glanced over his shoulder and her eyebrows rose. She’d clearly noticed the party was still in full swing, considering the music from the band drifted along the warm air. She’d likely also realized that they weren’t all that far away, either. People could easily see them.
Ella shivered, telling Kyler she liked the idea.
She was a little kinky.
When her smoldering gaze returned to his, she said softly, “I’ve never done this before.”
“Done what?”
“Had someone touch me in public”—her cheeks blushed bright red—“or really had sex with anyone I wasn’t dating.”
He leaned back, watching her closely. He’d placed the distance between them to teach her how this worked. He wouldn’t go further if she didn’t comply. “Well, this is my first time wanting to touch a woman on a boat dock.” He grinned at yet another blush of her cheeks. “Besides, I don’t believe I said I wanted to have sex with you. I said I wanted to touch you.”
