In a dazzling novel of passion and power from the bestselling author of Bound Beneath His Pain and the Club Sin series, a commanding man gives up his most prized possession to win back the one that got away.

Darius Bennett can’t live without supreme control. A self-made billionaire, he’s rich enough to get anything—and any woman—he wants, yet he’s still haunted by a broken relationship. Five years ago, Darius let Taylor Erikson go because he knew he could never give her what she truly wanted: his heart. But the moment Taylor walks back into his life, bruised and beaten, Darius blames himself. To make good on his betrayal, he vows to help her heal—in and out of the sheets.

Once upon a time, Darius was Taylor’s world. Now his fierce embrace is exactly what she needs to get back on her feet. But Taylor pays a heavy price for her sizzling nights with Darius. As the emotional ties become stronger than ever and the paparazzi hunt her down for their next juicy story, Taylor must face some hard truths. They can’t go back. And to move forward, the key to loving Darius isn’t about keeping his secrets—it’s about exposing them.

Tied to His Betrayal is intended for mature audiences.

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received this book free from Netgalley on behalf of Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept in exchange for an honest review*

Darius Bennett is a self-made billionaire. He can have any woman that he wants. Having to have control in all situations has gotten him where he is now. Darius was once in love with a woman that he let go because he was unable to provide the relationship that she deserved. Now that she is back in town he is not sure that he can keep himself at a distance. He knows that he has to have her in all the ways that he can.

Taylor Erikson has had her heart broken again. Coming back home should be the solitude that she needs. Now that she is working and hanging out with Darius she must face the spotlight of the paparazzi. Having her secrets get out could destroy her family.

Darius and Taylor have a past that neither one of them really let go of. They still love each other but know the hurt that comes along with it. While Darius is trying to throw the paparazzi off about his love life he finds that there is a lot more to what they know and share on the cover of magazines.

This is the second book of the Dirty Little Secrets series. While the guys are trying to keep their secrets from the public about the sex clubs that they own they discover that someone is getting too close to their private conversations. It’s hard to keep your life personal when you are a sexy single billionaire.

I love how much this group of friends has each other’s back. They would do anything for each other. This is a fun series to read. I am very excited for the next book to come out.

My Favorite Moment: I love when Taylor decides she has had enough of the paparazzi stories and she is going to show them and Darius how much she loves him.

Blog Tour: Review of Mine (Club Sin #7) by Stacey Kennedy


Protect What Is Yours!


Genre: Contemporary Romance, Erotica, BDSM

Book Length (Est.): 170 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:

Dmitri and Presley—the scorching-hot couple who started it all in the USA Today bestseller Claimed—return to save Club Sin in the exhilarating new short novel from Stacey Kennedy.
Dmitri Pratt is living out his dream. Not only does he own the ultimate playground for the BDSM lifestyle, he’s found a special connection with his deliciously sexy sub, Presley Flynn, the woman who complements him in ways that go far beyond the bedroom. But when an anonymous blackmailer threatens to expose the elite, high-profile members of Club Sin in a notorious tabloid, Dmitri’s perfect world spirals out of control.

Before she met Dmitri, Presley never imagined she would find a Master who could deliver on all her hottest fantasies. Dmitri’s love and his sensual artistry surprise her every day, until he suddenly turns distant and cold. For the first time, Presley wonders where Dmitri’s heart truly lies: with her, or with Club Sin. As the life they’ve built together begins to crumble, Presley can only trust that Dmitri has what it takes—to defend what’s his, and win back the woman he cannot live without.

Mine is intended for mature audiences.

Mindy’s Review:

*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept in exchange for an honest review*

Mine is the seventh installment in the Club Sin series. From the looks of it all good things must come to an end.

This book takes us back to the couple that started it all. Dmitri Pratt is the owner of Club Sin. When some shocking photos come to surface he must decide how to handle the safety of his club, client’s identity and the overall safety of his submissive.

Presley Flynn stole the heart of Dmitri and she loves him more than anything. When the tension gets too high her Dom just might push her too far away to get her back. Leaving her in the hands of the other Masters and their subs while he does what he needs to do to protect everyone including himself will put a strain on his relationship. Learning that the blackmailer is no other than Presley’s ex he will stop at nothing to do what needs to be done to make him and his threats go away. But can he win his woman back and give her all that she needs in life? He can if he has the same desires and wants.

I have read this series since the beginning and I loved each story and character. I would not recommend reading any of these as stand alones. If you are looking for an awesome series full of hot, masculine Masters and the stories of how they found their true loves in a sub then I would definitely add this series to your reading list.

Even though this is coming to an end Stacey Kennedy does give us a bonus. A spinoff series!! So excited!

My Favorite Moment: The proposal. Enough said, you just need to read it.

“Thank you for that, sir,” she whispered.

He chuckled, slapping her ass. “I suspect those legs might not be working so well at the moment.”

“You’d be right.” She laughed in the sweet way that brought him so much joy. “They don’t.”

He brushed his hand over her face, moving the strands of hair off to see her better. “How was that for you?”

“Amazing. My God!” Her smile was dozy, her eyelids were lowered, and her cheeks were flushed. “You increased the intensity with the whip tonight, didn’t you?”

“I did.” He grinned, loving the glorious twinkle in her eyes. “And you liked it.”

“I sure as hell did.”

He took the measure of her, resting his soft dick against the crease of her bottom. She looked well fucked and satisfied. “I love you, doll.”

“I love you, too.” She lifted up and angled her head to steal a kiss.

Nothing but adoration filled him as he allowed her to take his mouth. He liked that she knew him so well. The closeness they had was the one thing he hadn’t counted on when he lived a bachelor life. There was a difference between a casual submissive and what he had with Presley. She knew when she could take from him and when he’d allow it. Like now, in the afterglow of his orgasm. And she, being a clever woman, used it to her full advantage. She’d often steal kisses, and he thought she liked to because it made her feel special. Only she could do that to him.

As he straightened to remove the spreader bar, he heard a voice next to him say, “I need to speak with you, sir.”

Dmitri turned, and at the shock of the interruption, he snapped, “On your knees, sub!”

The young Club Sin submissive Sarah, who had turned twenty-three a few days ago, dropped to the ground in a heartbeat. Her head was bowed to the ground and her hands were twined together. “Explain yourself,” he growled at her. “And do it now!”

“I’m sorry for interrupting you and Presley, sir.” Her head lifted, revealing terrified brown eyes. “But it’s important.”

Interrupting a scene between a Dom and sub in Club Sin was the greatest offense. Knowing that, Dmitri took consideration over Sarah, spotting the fear in her expression. He suppressed his further reprimand. “What do you need to say, Sarah?”

She lifted her hand, offering him an envelope. “I have something to show you. It can’t wait.”

“Show me.”

She shook her head, looking everywhere but at him. “Not here. Believe me, it’s private.”

Something fearful passed in her expression, raising Dmitri’s alarms. “Sarah, look at me.” When she stared into his eyes, he added in a dry voice, “My cock is soaked with Presley’s cum and is hanging out for all to see. You’ve also just interrupted our scene. Show me whatever you have to. I will not repeat myself again.”

She hesitated, giving Presley a pained look, then turned to Dmitri again. “Okay, sir.” With shaky hands, she opened the envelope and handed Dmitri a stack of pictures.

He kept one hand on Presley’s back, telling her to stay put as he looked at the photos. In that very second, he knew his life would never be the same again.

And that Club Sin was in grave danger.

Review of Commanded (Club Sin #6) by Stacey Kennedy


Sexy SWAT officer and a Dom……Damn!

Genre: Contemporary Romance, BDSM

Book Length (Est.): 117 pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

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.

Commanded is intended for mature audiences.

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Random House Publishing Group -Loveswept in exchange for an honest review*

Sawyer Quinn loves his job on the SWAT team but when he needs to blow off some steam he goes right into Club Sin. Being a Master at Club Sin has helped him overcomes some obstacles in his life. Learning that his baby sister has been beat up by her boyfriend will send him on a hunt that is personal. The only personal he wants helping him is a private investigator that caught his attention and has awaken some of his needs.

Chloe Nash is sweet, beautiful and a bit innocent when it comes to her sexual life. She has only been with one man and that turned out to be more of a friendship than a relationship. When Sawyer walks into her office her entire body comes to life. But this visit might be strictly business.

Sawyer is a well dedicated officer that lives by strict rules. Chloe will have all of those crashing down around him. While Sawyer holds nothing back about himself and who he is he knows Chloe is the complete opposite. She has a pure innocence about her that he does not want to tarnish by introducing her to the BDSM lifestyle.

I really enjoyed this book. I have read all of the Club Sin series so far and this just might be my favorite one yet. This book is more personal but still includes the lust and hotness that everyone likes. The storyline is believable and not solely focused on the club itself. When the author wants you to feel the sexy hotness you are not disappointed.  Overall this was a great read.

My Favorite Moment: I love how blunt Sawyer is with his feeling. He definitely does not hold his feelings back.

Review of Tamed (Club Sin #5) by Stacey Kennedy


Smart-mouthed subs can be tamed.


Genre: Contemporary Romance, Erotica, BDSM 

Book Length (Est.): 211 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy returns to the tantalizing world of Club Sin in an enticing novel of control and surrender.

Porter Marshall has nearly achieved his goal of becoming a Club Sin Master, but his new sub poses a much bigger challenge than he anticipated. Despite their mutual attraction and red-hot dungeon sessions, Kenzie Hart plays her own games. Her bratty, you-can’t-break-me attitude masks terrible personal hurt—pain that only the exquisite touch of a skilled Dom can release. But when Porter suggests taking their connection to the outside world, Kenzie denies him . . . which only makes him want her more.

Kenzie can’t ignore the raw, fierce bond she has with Porter. But she can’t give in to his dangerous demands, either. Is the passion they share real, or is he using her to solidify his status at Club Sin? And yet, who else can she trust with the shattering secrets she holds within? As Porter expertly brings her to the point of no return, Kenzie surrenders her body—and, piece by piece, her heart.

Tamed is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Random House   Publishing Group – Loveswept in exchange for an honest review* 

Kenzie Hart is a smart mouth, fierce Submissive that likes to push her Doms to the limit. Releasing the pain in her makes her forget her past for a little while. She knows her limits when it comes to men, keep play in the dungeon and never let it in your real world.

Porter Marshall is a new member in Club Sin. To get the status of a Club Sin Master he has taken Kenzie as his sub for one month. Being completely drawn to her he wonders if he can break the walls down within her to find love after all.

Kenzie and Porter have an immediate connection from their first kiss. Both being in shock of the intense connection has Porter ready to do anything to make Kenzie shut her mouth and just feel the pleasure without needing the pain to fuel her release.

This is book 5 in the Club Sin series and they just keep getting better and better. This story will drive you wild with intense feelings of pleasure, pain and a heartfelt past. Learning what Kenzie deals with every day in her mind makes you really feel for her and want to see her overcome her past.

When trouble lands in her bookstore Porter has an overwhelming urge to protect his sub no matter the cost.

I really loved reading this book. Kenzie is a very strong headed woman that needs to be tamed to enjoy true happiness and Porter knows exactly what and how to do that. The intense storyline of Kenzie’s safety is what really makes you fall for the main characters.

I would highly recommend not only this book but the entire Club Sin series to anyone that just loves a hot and steamy great read.

My Favorite Moment: I really enjoy when Kenzie tries to fight her true feelings within herself throughout this book. It just really makes you feel what she feels.

Review of Freed (Club Sin #4) by Stacey Kennedy


Electric Chemistry!


Genre: Contemporary Romance, Erotica 

Book Length (Est.): 166 pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Mary Schmidt knows only too well how thrilling a Master’s touch can be. Her husband, Charles, had been her ultimate fantasy, a seducer in the erotic dance of dominance and submission. She misses the sensual lifestyle they shared, but mourns him so deeply she cannot bear to embrace her submissive needs with another Dom—until a man who exudes temptation reawakens desires she can no longer deny.

Elliott Foster is dazzled by Mary. He instantly knows that she’s the woman he’s been waiting for—a woman who turns games into need. As her Master, he dares to unlock the deepest pleasures of her flesh, releasing her from pain and healing her mind. When Mary’s lithe body comes to life under his, he knows their connection goes beyond sex. Now that he has found the perfect woman, the perfect partner, the perfect submissive, he desires only to give her everything she craves.

NOTE: Freed is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept in exchange for an honest review*

Mary Schmidt lost the love of her life, her dominant and husband Charles, a little over four years ago. She misses him so much that she has stayed out of the lifestyle as she cannot imagine another taking his place. Mary overall has quit living her life for herself. Her kids are grown and living life to the fullest while Mary is just…..alone. She does have dinner with her sister often but when she goes to her weekly dinner with Dmitri and Presley her world will turn upside down.

Elliott Foster is a business associate of Dmitri’s. While signing an important deal he has the pleasure of meeting Mary. Instantly he is drawn to her, he notices the true submissive within her but he also notices a loneliness about her that he wants to learn more about. Elliott tries everything to get Mary to understand that her heart and her body are fighting her true happiness to live. And Elliott knows that Mary needs a Dominant in her life.

This is a great story about overcoming a terrible loss and learning to live again. Mary and Elliott are around the same age and share common interest within and out of the lifestyle. I always love to read about second chances and I do think it is possible to have more than one soul mate. I think the author did a great job at showing the emotions and scarring of loss and new beginnings. And the sex is pretty hot!

My Favorite: I enjoyed when Mary and Elliott met for the first time. The instant chemistry was electric.
