Claimed (Club Sin #1) by Stacey Kennedy Review
Claimed is a good start to an erotic series of books that is set around the characters revolving around a exclusively run BDSM club, Club Sin. In Claimed we get Dmitry and Presley's story. Dmitry is a wealthy, strong and confident Dom who is secure in who he is and the lifestyle that he embraces. Presley, on the other hand is a complete novice and isn't sure how she will fit into a world that she knows so little about. Presley is brought to Club Sin to explore by her more experienced room mate Cora, who is an experienced submissive. After being introduced to Dmitry, Presley is immediately attracted to the more experienced and reserved Dom.
Claimed has plenty of steaminess, but the story is a bit simple. There was nothing especially unique or engrossing with this story, but it was a good set up to book 2 which will focus on Cora and Aiden's story who are just secondary characters in this one. I think that Cora and Aiden's story will be a more interesting story simply because they will have much more tension than what was between Dmitry and Presley. I will admit that I am a bit burned out with the innocent young woman and experienced man story line, so that may be why I didn't fall in love with this story. Claimed was a decent read but I am looking at it as a springboard into what I hope will be a good series.
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.
