Presley Flynn is ready for something different in her life. She gave eight years to her ex boyfriend, moved to a new state for him only to learn that he had cheated on her. Now she has ditched the loser and wants to do something new. Her friend and roommate notices that she reads a lot of BDSM books and encourages her to come to a club with her. She thinks it is just what Presley needs in order to make that big change in her life.
Dmitri is the owner of the exclusive club. He built the club in his home and the membership is small enough for him to control who comes and goes. He was introduced to BDSM, by a friend, at a time in his life where everything seemed out of control. BDSM gave him a way to feel calm because though he couldn’t always control the business aspect of his life, once he was home he was in full control. Even though he is the owner of the club he hasn’t taken a submissive on for anything but training in many years. He needs a woman who will still be independent outside the walls of the club and most submissives he has come across want to in the lifestyle 24/7.
When Presley walks in for club membership he is drawn to her. So drawn that he puts a rush on all her standard tests so she can be admitted to the club faster. He doesn’t want to give her any reason to be scared or run. When her tests all come back good he decides that he will be her Master to train her and introduce her to their way of life. It only takes one session though for him to realize that he wants more than just training with this submissive. Unfortunately, Presley doesn’t know how to act and assumes that her fast attachment to Dimitri is not reciprocated. After some miscommunication the pair come back together and work to settle their outside issues as a couple.
Claimed is a club book so I can see where some people would be put off by some of the things that happen. The sex scenes are hot and plentiful but some limits are pushed when certain things are done in public. Personally, I enjoy reading this type of thing but is you are looking for a more behind closed doors relationship then this might not be the book for you. Dimitri is just the type of sexy man that I like to read about. He is a bit arrogant, sure of himself and always the controlling Dom. He doesn’t hesitate to push Presley into things he thinks she can take even if she is uncertain about them.
There are also several good secondary characters in the book that will make for good continuation of this series. I especially look forward to the next couple as they seem to be already established as D/s but the Dom is resisting any idea of a relationship. I can’t wait to see the sub push her Dom for more.
Overall, I liked this book. It was a quick, sexy read. It has some hot moment of BDSM and a good controlling man. Some days that is all it takes to make this girl happy. Final grade- B-
Without so much as a moment’s hesitation, he kicked off his shoes, removed his socks, dropped his pants and his black boxer briefs, then his erection sprang free.
Presley’s mouth dropped open as she stared at a very, very, large erection. She doubted her hand would fit around him; it looked as if it were ready to stab her. “Sir….I….you….”
“Have a large cock,” he offered, and at her slow nod and deep swallow, he chuckled.
