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 the seventh, and final, book in Stacey Kennedy’s Club Sin Series. I absolutely adored the rest of the series, so I was looking forward to reading this book. It comes full circle by focusing on Dimitri and Presley from Commanded, the first book in the series. Their story is one that has stuck with me ever since I read that book and continues to act as a benchmark for the rest of the series for me.
Dimitri and Presley became Dom/sub in Commanded. However, while all of the other couples have married and started having families, Dimitri and Presley have not moved on from the D/s relationship. Dimitri pulls away from Presley when Club Sin is threatened, which causes a lot of tension and issues between the two. This story is full of hot, steamy, scenes just like the rest, along with angst and tension. While I adore this couple, this book did not meet my full expectations of greatness. Maybe it was my mood or maybe I put these two on a pedestal, but I wanted more from this story. I did love the ending and the epilogue, but the middle didn’t hold my attention like the rest of the books did. With that said, this is in no way a bad book or story. It just didn’t hold up to my 5 star standards like the rest of the series did. I’m sad to see the members of Club Sin go, but I look forward to seeing what the author comes up with next.
“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.”
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.
