Blurb: Dmitri and Presley—the scorching-hot couple who started it all in Claimed—return to save Club Sin in the exhilarating new short novel from USA Today bestselling author 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.
Review: I’ve read several other books in this series, and this last one was a great mix of suspense, romance and mystery all tied together in a great big bow. It was less about the sex and more about the story of Dmitri and Presley–a great close to the series.
When revealing photos show up that could destroy the lives of several members of Club Sin, they have to get to the bottom of it. Dmitri specifically, since it’s’ located in his home. The members all had joined the exclusive BDSM club because they’d guaranteed them anonymity–and now the location has been exposed! Dmitri and Presley move into Aces, the gambling establishment he runs, and he starts tracking down the culprit.
For Presley, this is a nightmare! What makes it worse is Dmitri is completely shutting down. He’s not talking to her and he’s spending all his time working on the problem. When she tries to comfort him or even talk to him about what’s happening, he shuts her down. Presley feels incredibly frustrated and embarrassed when she has to find out what’s going on in the investigation from other people–not her partner! Why is Dmitri ignoring her? And all the other Masters are being really supportive to their women, which makes her feel even worse.
Dmitri finds out pretty quickly who’s responsible for the nasty photos, but shutting down this threat is only part of what he’s after. He feels like he’s betrayed the confidence of all the membership. Dammit–it was his house–he should have protected it better! Unfortunately, finding out who did it is really going to hurt Presley–which is why he’s trying to keep it from her. He’s got to fix this situation and make sure that the members of Club Sin are not only safe now–but that they always will be.
How this all works out is complicated by hurt feelings and unreciprocated love gone bad. Great end to the series and an enticing lead to the next. Thanks for the sweet, hot read!
