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.

A woman that loves to read BDSM stories is ready to experience it in real life with a sexy, gorgeous Dom, Master Dmitri.

CLAIMED is a different BSDM read for me as this is my first read by Stacey Kennedy. I'm not saying it was not a good read; it was actually very good but just different. I loved how Master Dmitri waited for awhile before he even had intercourse with Presley and how he allowed her time to become accustomed to Club Sin. He was very patient with her and gave her some slack, but he was also a different type of Dom.

Master Dmitri was a Dom who wanted a different kind of submissive, one that had a backbone, one that would not say "to obey you". Presley is also a different type of submissive, one that is not sexually experienced but also she's very shy. That is what attracts Master Dmitri to Presley--her innocence and her need to please everyone around her but she does turn the tables on him.

Presley knew what she liked in the BDSM world and what her hard limits were. She loved to be tied up, to be seen, to be touched but by only one man. Master Dmitri sees a woman that he needs to unravel, a beautiful woman that seems to only want his touch. There is something about her that has his jewels hard as a rock. He breaks one of his rules and takes Presley to his bed, not a guest room where she belongs. So when he wakes in the morning and finds her gone, Presley's in major trouble...

CLAIMED has a good storyline and I loved how the focus of this story was on Master Dmitri and Presley, and not so much on Club Sin. Yes, there still is spanking, whipping, rope tying, and punishment, and they're sizzling hot. Master Dmitri is a Dom that knows what he is doing with his hands, his mouth, with a whip; just everything he does is hot. I was pulled into this book and I couldn't put it down. The raging chemistry that these two characters have is sizzling hot.

The only problem was that I had trouble with Presley and her wanting to be part of the BDSM world when she seemed so shy. At times it was a little hard to believe that she could go through this training but she surprised me. Just when I would think she would go out screaming, she would just calm down at Master Dmitri's touch. I really enjoyed Ms. Kennedy's writing style and this is a good start to a great series.

CLAIMED is an erotic BDSM story with fun characters who are easy to like. I will definitely be waiting patiently for Cora and Aidan's story.
